Re: Paypal Expands

I'd say it's more about getting publicity tbh.

Re: Paypal Expands

No not really - they've had plenty of bad publicity over the years. Few years back the boss of paypal in germany demanded someones ID as he himself didn't trust paypal  Grin
Thing is you can be the biggest but unless you keep your name in peoples minds you start slipping. Look how many of the big brands have collapsed over the years.. and many of them are the ones that haven't advertised much for moons.

Who'd have thought a company would have gotten free advertising from a fictitious press release Roll eyes

All the big companies are at it these days - just like Ryanair. Any publicity is good publicity as far as they're concerned and most people are so busy these days that they forget about the 'badness' but still remember the company name when they next need that service.

Re: Paypal Expands

There is one major problem with Paypal
If you make a one off payment (don't have an account) there seems to be no method of sorting out problems where the seller hasn't performed

Re: Paypal Expands

I never thought of that Jim.  I use Paypal enough to have an account.
