DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

10/13/04: How fast is PayPal ?

Tech Support Pits:
From Tara=== Dear Webby, How fast is PayPal ? Some people say it's instant, others say it takes a week. What's the real story? Tara Dear Tara Paypal will accept your payment and take your money instantly, unless their corner of the net is down like it has been the last few days. However, just because they take your money instantly, that does not mean the merchant will get it right away. First PayPal hangs on to your money and plays with it for three to five days before they start the transfer to the recipient's bank. Most banks claim that they can't trust PayPal and have to wait until their check stops bouncing. It's actually just electronic funds transfers, but they stick to their excuse. That takes another three to five days until it finally shows up in the merchant's account. If you are a merchant or recipient, budget on an average of seven days between a customer's PayPal payment and you actually being able to use the money to buy the supplies that you need to make stuff for the client. Have FUN! DearWebby
