I have been using paypal since ebay purchased them(about 10 years). Over the years I have heard many complaints. I have given advice to many(keep funds in the account, don't do anything to appear shady). All of this advice worked well until last month, paypal froze up my own account. It was very frustrating, but I got it cleared up in 7 days. Here are a few things that I learned.

Paypal has one of the smartest computer systems in the world, designed to spot fraud. If your volume has a dramatic increase, you take excessive cash withdraws, possibly sell fakes, cannot prove where you you got your product. Or you were not honest when you signed up for the account, then you can plan on paypal freezeing up your account.(even if you are Verified, and have used their service for 10 years) Paypal will require proof of who you are(ID and credit check, and a credit card), proof of where your product came from(manufacturers invoice) proof of the location of you, and your product(utility bills, deed, lease etc.) Paypal WILL hold your funds until you provide all of this info. At first I was mad, but ultimately this policy protects paypal, and runs off fraudlent sellers. My only complaint is I wished that I knew all of this info ahead of time, I run a "legitimate" business therefore I was back up in 7 days, if I would have known the rules I would have already provided the info. By the way if(when) this happens, paypal will investigate every item that you send them, and from what I understand when this happens, you are safe from it happening again.

I love it. This seems to be the best solution to get info on unknown sites, the bbb is motivated by the amount of money that they receive from the business, ripoff report seems to cater to complainers, everyone here seems to give real useable information. Thanks to all of the posters.

Craigslist is free, which is the best part. The features, are a bit outdated. But Free is free, no real complaints.

The features are awesome on this site, if you are planning on building a home, you can look at the home with different colors, textures, siding, tile cabinets etc.

Super neat.

I have been using this site for over a year to find local auctions in the midwest. The information given by the site has so far been 100 percent accurate, and easy to navigate.

As a 11 year veteran of the site, I have noticed that over the past several years the site has leaned to the direction of the buyer in all aspects, this has made it difficult for alot of sellers to maintain their same business(some buyers are out there to take advantage of you) but ultimately the more accountable that you hold the sellers, the more comfortable the buyers will be. I don't agree with some of the politically driven policies, nor with the way ebay protects itself, but over all, thumbs up. No where else can you sell to the same size of audience, as you can on ebay.
