I've never really had a problem with them, aside from the time it takes to get funds from the PayPal to our bank account, and that really drives me nuts. How in hells name it takes over seven working days to shift funds from one place to another is beyond me, it's a push of a button when all said and done, and as stated previously, it takes a split second to come out of my account in the opposite direction.
However, you never send goods unless the payment has cleared in the first place.
Mind you, the Post Office are [insert swear word], I posted something out on Feb 19th with proof of postage, they said we had to wait 28 days before claiming, so we've claimed, the people at the other end say they haven't got the item, RM say it was definitely delivered. One word against another I suppose......
