Paypal changes  
I thought you might want to know that paypal just made changes. (I found out trying to take in a payment tonight)

Paypal no longer lets you take credit/debit with a normal account (it used to let you with a small fee).

You can't recieve payments from debit cards at all unless you have a preimer account-- and to do that-- you have to pay a percentage of ALLLLL payments recieved including checks/ deposits from other paypal accounts ect-- from ANY recived payments.

well, that's retarded.
Are payments still free of charge?

Despite how popular and common paypal is, I can imagine with little things like this being added on, it's popularity will go down a bit... Guess I'm glad I got my credit card when I did :T

Payments are still free of charge, yup, as of now.

Well, that just sucks a lot. >:(

If a person has a normal account but hasn't received any payments (in other words, s/he has only sent payments), does this mean that this person can upgade the account for free?

Well yes, but there'd be no point to it. The only reason to have the priemeir account would be so you could RECIEVE payments for debit/credit.

hmm...I do have an account and I pay using my debit card, though it's probably okay for me, but for the people who have normal accounts and if they want to accept the money from people who have debit cards, that sucks.

but wait a minute...I think I have a normal account...? *scratches her head* I know that I don't have a premier account, because you have to pay more to get it, Also I pay with my DC...is that good or bad?

But I wanted to know how can you get another account w/o having to use your credit/debit card?

I mean people who I pay for the stuff I want they have two accounts, one is for people who have CC/DC and one for people who don't.

do I have to pay in order to get another account that will accept non CC?

You can pay with anything from a normal account.

Now you can only accept payments from cc/dc through a preimier account. If you do have a premier acount though you have to pay the percentage on all transfers that come into you.

It used to be that normal accounts could accept debit/credit but they had to pay like 3% or whatever to paypal for the fee.

I agree with obscure_panic. Personal accounts have not been able to accept credit card payments at all for at least a few years. I remember denying payments even two years ago, with Paypal displaying a message that I would have to upgrade my account to be able to accept the payment.

Same here. O_o I never heard about being able to accept those kind of payments by paying a fee -- I was pretty sure you absolutely had to have a Premier account for that.

...oh well. Whatever. ::shrug::
