I don't get the problem with PayPal. I've used them hundreds of times since first signing up in 2010. I have never had a problem with them. I know nothing about their politics and as long as they do their job and I do my job, I think it's a pretty good setup. All credit card companies charge for the use of their card and time. I got rid of my American Express, some places refused it because of the high fees the businesses were forced to incur. Credit card companies make money and this year I'm getting over 700 back for using mine.
I was told 50 bucks for gold, mines up in a few days.
