[Bain's] Tom Tierney said, "Donahoe, you idiot. You don't need to quit, we will find a way to make it work." He assigned me to a local client so I could consult and take care of the kids.- John Donahoe (9 Sep 2013)...

Donahoe has not demonstrated that same consideration for the many small merchants that made eBay the great marketplace that it used to be and who rely on eBay to support their families - indeed, the very opposite has been the case ...

That this narcissistic, sociopath
, Johnny Ho, would use such a charity to attempt to ingratiate himself with the community, is utterly disgraceful …

“PayPal: The safe way to pay and be paid”—LOL!

“How to complain about PayPal in the UK”

On this article,(currently) 410 negative comments on “PreyPal”—well worth a read for any small merchant using, or thinking of using,“PreyPal” to accept payments and who has not as yet had a problem with “PreyPal” because, when you do eventually have that problem, it could well be a serious business-threatening problem …

“PayPal:'Aggressive changes' coming to frozen funds policy”

Of the 368 comments currently on this article, see if you can find any that are complimentary of “PreyPal”…

And, just for fun, another story from Anna Tims of the Guardian/Observer detailing an apparent systems failure at “PreyPal” that undoubtedly affected who knows how many people …

PayPal Media Release—Draft—Confidential …

“It is with great sadness that eBay’s chief headless turkey, Johnny Ho, announces the anticipated incapacitation of eBay’s most ugly adopted daughter,‘PreyPal’.‘PreyPal’ is about to be severely adversely affected by new, particularly virulent, strains of digital wallet: MasterCard’s ‘MasterPass’ and Visa’s ‘’, in addition to financial institutions’ displeasure due to ‘PreyPal’ transactions resulting in far too many credit card charge-backs, and also much ‘PreyPal’ merchant/payee dissatisfaction regarding PayPal’s utterly unprofessional transaction dispute mediation process (or total lack thereof) and arbitrary (unlawful) holds on payees’ funds.

“‘PreyPal’ may therefore be expected to soon begin to deteriorate in health and, if ultimately not completely incapacitated, will most likely be eventually confined to servicing what little there will be left, by then, of the Ho-devastated eBay marketplace, and to being the merchant account provider of last resort for those small online sellers that do not have the confidence of their own retail banker.

“There is no cure this condition, and Johnny Ho is particularly saddened by the inevitability that, in the not too far distant future,‘PreyPal’ will be unable to continue to underpin the eBay marketplace’s atrophying sales and stagnating revenues (albeit counterbalanced by ever increasing, percentage wise, FVFs).”
