We've started adding the gateway fees to the checkout.

We're going more "cloudy" with some services and people can pay for shorter terms, which are too small to take the hit on the gateway fees.

This way the fee means nothing to us, and the customer can decide which billing cycle length they want to minimise the gateway fee.

Here we accept paypal, credit and bitcoin. A while back we had to halt credit card transactions due to fraud, but we offer that option again. We have never had any issues with PayPal.

I have always used Paypal. I don't think I've ever had any problems with Paypal other then using it for Ebay for selling things and people have then charge back or reported it as not them. I've ended up emailing clients after they order to verify it was them that ordered and that they'd like me to proceed. That way i have proof it was them that ordered and they wanted the item .

We always accepted PayPal and rarely had an issue.

Back in the day, before PayPal became the giant they are, people associated PayPal as a poor mans credit card system. To some, if you accepted it (and only PayPal), you weren't a real business yet.

All that changed many years ago. Now PayPal is actually a Bank and is FDIC insured as a bank.

The only issue we ever had, and we had it twice, was that we had a client file a dispute, and PayPal froze our account until the dispute was settled 7-8 days later.

Normally, not an issue, HOWEVER, we were processing $30k/month via PayPal, and a chargeback from a client who paid $5 froze the entire balance. That's a big issue when you're trying to pay your datacenter etc to keep the machines online.

This happened twice with us. And there wasn't anything extra fishy, or any extra details. It was just a dispute and they froze everything. Still, it didn't stop us from using them. We just made sure to transfer funds every time we hit $5k or so.

That all changed when they were bought by eBay and become eBay only payment method.

Many years ago they had registered offices in the UK, but their EU arm were forced to move to Luxembourg when the FSA cancelled their registration due to their policies not set to protect buyers (ie. you can set up a PP account and then a website offering downloadable items, but infact you have no downloadable products, but you take money for these, but a buyer will get no help or refund from PP) so in a way they are aiding scammers.

the main issue we get with PP is they have a habit of cancelling subscriptions without any notice without instructions from us or our clients and when i call them i am told it must be a clitch in the system and wont happen again ( well that is until it happens again) and then they tell you the same thing.
we stopped offering PP subs due to this issue and decided we will use the Billing Agreements method, but needed to get Reference Transactions enabled on our account, but then told you need to upgrade to Paypal Pro for this and that is 20 a month. well that is wrong after i spoke to several companies that use this method, but PP would have none of this, so i simple followed what other stated and signed up with Braintree a PP company and this gives your Reference Transactions on your PP account when you click the option to enable PP

We provide PayPal payment for our customers but can understand providers not doing it. Working with paypal and the paypal support can be annoying .

PayPal is good way but many countries dont have a PayPal so they are forced to use different options such as Payeer,Payoneer,2Checkout etc..

Have been using paypal since day one i have became a seller.
If you provide enough proof and your customer did something that isn't allowed to your terms you will not have any problem winning the case.

I prefer PayPal over any payment gateway there is.

PayPal Business Payments is the lowest fee of any payment option that I'm aware of -- 50 cents flat fee regardless of transaction size.

If I had time to give you a list of reasons why, I would!

We have had the account years and even use it for offline businesses we run, 72 hour withdrawals have been going on now for well over 6 months!

Their fees are ridiculous when compared to credit card processors we prefer to have customers in our stripe system, it is cheaper and we have no hassle

i would suggest you look at

https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees

https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees

even PayPal Business Payments as below

https://goo.gl/6ByQAJ

shows the fees as 3.4% + 20p per transaction
