I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get the money or not. 25 minutes after I withdrew the August payment from Patreon to Paypal, Paypal locks my account.
“The PayPal User Agreement states that PayPal, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to limit an account for any violation of the User Agreement, including the Acceptable Use Policy.”
I have not violated any part of their agreement. I’ve read it many times. But Paypal just does this all the time.
Pretty pissed off and demotivated right now…
I had $430 in that account, plus I have to pay out to the writers, so I’m out more like $600 if Paypal doesn’t open up the money to withdrawal after 30 days like they say they “might”.
I WAS going to be telling the writers that I’m not comfortable with sending them their cut via Paypal after this point given their record and that they’d need to set up an account somewhere else, like Dwolla. In the future there could be thousands of dollars and I wouldn’t want that in Paypals hands. But… too late.
