Paypal sides with the seller far more often than buyer when it comes to servers and leased servers like this. I've had tens of disputes, most I win with saying nothing more than "service was delivered and as per TOS we do not refund. also it is a virtual service" or something.

Never had any problems with PayPal, both as buyer and seller. Used them from when it was still X.com online banking.

It's just that these dispute resolutions need to be done to the letter, or else the favor "automatically" lies with the buyer. But this is the same with CCMs, probably even worse with their "shoot first, ask later" charge-backs.

But personally, I don't mind if OVH will start accepting PayPal, particularly if there's people asking for it. I don't think it'll increase the abuse of services any more than what OVH is already experiencing (given some dodgy domain name owner's names like "Homer J. Simpson" ).

Not true.

Just think about unauthorized transactions and there are way more ways to fraud the system. PayPal can be a biatch at times.. intangible items or not.

I hear that if an item is digital (i.e. not actually a sent item), then PayPal will always side with the buyer. Who's to say someone could use PP to buy things, then weeks later, put a chargeback in?

I do use PP, since 2004, and had only had about 6 issues but I hear so many against PP

PayPal... I am sure it'll attract more buyers that love the ease of paying with PayPal. But on the flipside, it's going to cost a lot of money for all the chargebacks....

Each payment has to be manually verified to see if it comes from a verified/unverified account. On top of that, verified doesn't mean it's really verified.. adding a VCC could be enough for getting the ''verified status''.

And PayPal can accept chargebacks for the strangest reasons no matter what the size of your company is. But well on the other hand, OVH already accepts credit cards.. so if it makes a lot of difference? Probably not..

I use the (free) Verisign VIP authenticator Android app for PayPal and eBay. Works like a dream

I'm guessing in the trend of them reversing setups (apparently to curb spam, wonder how that went... :P) they are now further moving down the path of hosting for illicit users? Who knows maybe they got a good deal with paypal :/

Yeah im not a paypal fan at all. But i guess it is down to personal preference.

Same Jon,

I personally do not like paypal or ebay - since they merged they got worse.

We are still testing Paypal at ovh.com, once the process is finalised, we will implement Paypal in Eurozone, and then UK...

Eurozone (ovh.ie) should be ready by the end of the year. But for UK it will be in 2012 (I prefer to give large time frame to avoid any disappointment )
