    So I was in Staples the other day and saw a Paypal Card;

    My thinking ... buy the card @ 5x/$ & load it to your paypal account. Then purchase everything via paypal or send "payments" to friends/family for "goods/services".

    Is this doable? if so ... next coming of VR/OD/BB?

    Very doable if u pay to friends/family or buy purchased goods. If you withdraw to bank account then will 99% cause a PayPal suspension.

    Buying purchased goods with PP is probably your safest bet. However as always...YMMV

    Lol. I've never had issues but I've only manufactured $500 with PP in the last 6 months.
    I've read lots of PP suspensions though.

    wish i would've known; i bought quite a few things through eBay & sold things on eBay (Pay seller fees) that I could've gotten 5x instead of my 1SPG that I was doing.

    All good. You can start now. And you get another extra 1% back with your PP debit card!
    Don't overdo it though. Read the amounts people spend and got suspended. Just Google PayPal suspensions or on other bulletin boards.

    I second this. I used to sell around 3000+ a week on EBay (back when BlackBerrys were cool) and I had 3 separate suspensions for transferring to my bank account, even though all were overturned.

    Yep - Messing with Paypal is like messing with Heisenburg. You'd be advised to tread lightly.

    That's crazy. All of the funds you transferred were from sales?

    I figured if its from legit sales then its okay. But I guess you were doing it in higher numbers...

    I use to sell around $1000 a month and had the AutoSweep feature on. Never had a problem, but $1K a month is too small for them to care, I guess.

    Legitimacy is not a consideration for PP. If they determine that taking over your account balance for 6 months is more profitable for them than collecting fees from you for the next 6 months, they'll lock your account.

    Hmmmm... I have yet to see a PP card at Staples. I may need to check these things out more closely.
