SEOs & PayPal

One thing I have learned in this industry is that many of the SEOs/SEMs I deal with use PayPal in a large way. Most of the advertisers at this blog, prefer to pay via PayPal over a normal credit card. Personally, there is something about PayPal that I do not like. About every other day I get an email from PayPal about this or that, I know that 90% of them are phishing for something. I simply do not trust PayPal. Does that mean I never use it? No, I use it when I have to. Just recently, my WebmasterWorld Subscription ran out and I received about 3 emails from PayPal telling me I needed to update something in order to renew my subscription. I did not update it and my WMW subscription expired. I am a strong believer of Webmaster forums and I like to do what I can to support them. So I went to WebmasterWorld this morning, the day after it expired, and renewed there. I am glad to see that I do not have to pay through PayPal again. So I placed my one year subscription and I now await access to the supporters forum again.

Call me old school, but I just do not like PayPal.

You're 'oldschool' :p I quite like Paypal, except for just after Christmas 2004, when a glitch in bank-processing somewhere in the financial maze resulted in me being billed ten times for the same thing and my credit card being completely max'd out. I did get an apology email but it still took me a couple of weeks to sort out. Come to think of it; I'm not so keen on Paypal either.
