Yeah. Paypal is far better than 2co
It really depends on how you define the word "better."
We have had our problems with both, and just recently we've had a problem with 2CO's fraud investigation methods. They have allowed fraudulant orders to go through, with flying colors, going as far as sending us notice that the particular orders "Passed their fraud review" only to come back a few months later and nail us for those charges. Kind of makes you question what their fraud investigation process actually is, or does.
Now, at the same time, anyone and their brother can get a PayPal account, and start sending money, and PayPal has no prepurchase fraud checks at all. They wait until there is a problem before they investigate.
then the problems started to appear
Jericho, it would be interesting to know, in some form of detail, what the problems actually were.
2CO does not seem to operate on the weekends, and thus may have delayed your account setup, etc.
We literally have never had account problems with them. The only problem we have ever had is mentioned above, and that is after 2 years of doing business with them. We never had a problem with them before, nor since.
