why does everyone else accept PayPal, then? Amazon should get off its high horse and join us in the 21st century. credit cards are so 1980s...
Amazon.com sells their own payment solution, the more people that already have an account the more valuable their platform becomes. Accepting Paypal is simply bad business sense.
And seriously, fuck Paypal, they aren't anything special and renowned for their shitty business practices.
Amazon has its own payments service. Which is easier than paypal.
Also, Paypal are notorious assholes. If there is something that needs competition, it is paypal.
Ah I see others have common sense as well:)
Unfortunately they have like 90% (only guessing) of the market. Most ebay sellers have to 'offer' it as an option (i don't like giving my direct cc details to the sellers so have no other option), many websites sellers use it as the ONLY option they offer ( the others are slowly being offered but at a very small pace).Love to use Amazon or Googles payment methods but it aint an option being offered very often to the buyer right now.
Im actually wondering how the average user has problems with paypal?. Ive heard stories of ebay sellers or other sellers at times having accounts frozen due to abnormally high activity (in paypals eyes) etc....but other issues?.
