Paypal is Evil

Just got off the phone with Paypal. They are limiting my account and then permanently shutting it down AND suggest I find another payment co. ie, I can't open another account with them. I've been blackballed. And from what I've heard, you really can't ever open another account because everything is so linked up, they'll know. 

I've used the account for over 12 years and every transaction has been on the up and up and I've never had a negative balance. My ebay and ETSY ratings are both 100% positive. They won't tell me why they're shutting it down. They say that's "proprietary information". I told them it's proprietary to me because it deals with my account, to which they said, "we've decided to part ways. The decision is final and there is no overturning it." Which to me means the loss of most, if not all, of my ETSY business. 
I sell art and crafts and I buy yarn, art and books. NOTHING SUSPICIOUS HAS EVER HAPPENED WITH MY ACCOUNT--EVER!! 

I did some google searches and this seems to be a common problem. Paypal seems to do this a lot to people with no explanation and then you're banned for life. So spread the word BEWARE OF PAYPAL. They will screw you over the first chance they get!!!!!

Anybody else ever been through this or know someone who has???

Ive never heard of that but that is scary and there has to be another site that artist and vendors and cutomers can go to, I will have to research that. Thanks for sharing

You can also charge people through Google Checkout. That is what we use as a small tree service. Your customers don't even have to have an account with them.

That is awful! I'm thinking of starting an etsy shop and can't imagine what I would do in that case.. Be sure to post if you somehow work it out to keep your shop. I'm so sorry!
