Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Stores that accept PayPal

My PayPal acct is getting a little fat, so I am looking for some reliable online stores.

It is? Transfer some funds to me. Mine is a bit skinny.

Well www.probikekit.com has 10% off and free shipping Atm.

Linking your bank account to your paypal is a bad idea.

Either you get hax0red or paypal can F you over. When you signed the terms of agreements you basically gave paypal control over your bank account if you linked it. If someone disputes charges or whatever and they lock it, they can basically take all your money out at will with no recourse available to you. No appeals no nothing.

Lesson is: put in your paypal account only the amount you need to complete a transaction, nothing more.

My apologies for hijacking this thread, but Operator, is there anything you can suggest for Canadian vendors using PayPal. I sell via my online store using PayPal, and I don't think that Canadians can get the ATM card. How else would I withdraw my revenues?
