Does anybody know anything about them?
I tried to register and they took both my Bank a/c details and Credit Card.
But then rejected my verification by saying I had failed to answer the telephone when I had.
Since then I have sent repeated Emails but received no reply.
I am sure they are trustworthy but do not consider it a good start to a business relationship.

I want to start selling and it seemed the best way was thru Paypal.
The site started off: https.

They instigated the call. The page for verification stated that I would receive a call and then I had to type a specific code into the keypad of my phone. I did it exactly as they said but, immediately I had done so, the screen came up claiming I failed to answer. No second chances and I am supposed to wait whilst they contact me by snail mail. I have mailed them but not received any response, not even an acknowledgement.

I agree with CoB. I does sound odd, although I had followed the links from Ebay.
I was really hoping someone else would have had this problem but found it all came right in the end.
As I said before: I am always wary of organisations who don't reply to mail, especially when it is a message generated through their page.

They never mentioned anything about an automated message.
They said to answer the phone and type in the code which they had given me. Perhaps I had to listen to the message before keying in the numbers which would explain why they rejected it. But it still doesn't excuse their ignorance in ignoring my mails.
Do I take it from what you have said that I can use PayPal without being verified. (That was one of the questions I am waiting for an answer to)
hkvic I tried calling but was put on hold!!!!!

paypal does sometimes take a couple of days to get back to you due to the amount of users now in the country. when did you email them.

I have just received a response from them.
It is selective in that it answers none of my legitimate concerns and just repeats the fact that I will be contacted by post.
I don't think I will bother - but like many companies with a large customer base- I doubt very much if that will worry them.
