“I’ve been suspended from PayPal?? WTF???”

Unfortunate as it may be, it is entirely possible that in the course of your internet marketing career, PayPal may suspend your account—or in their words, “limit” your account. Once this happens, the suspension will likely not be permanent, but it could take weeks or months to convince PayPal that your business practices are perfectly legitimate. Unfortunately, this down time could have severe negative effects on your business. My goal with this guide is to help you prevent this from happening by making you aware of the practices that could get you flagged by PayPal as one of the bad guys—and how to avoid these practices. I’ll also provide some ideas for backup plans, and tips for dealing with PayPal should they limit your account. Once you’ve taken the steps outlined here, you can feel secure in the knowledge that you’re doing everything you can to make PayPal happy. I can’t make any guarantees that you won’t get on PayPal’s bad side in some other completely unrelated kind of way, but if you’re using your best judgment and not doing anything shady, you should be in good shape.

Withdrawing Money in a Suspicious Way The important things to know about withdrawing money from PayPal are that you should be doing it in a consistent manner, and that you should always keep a bit of money in your account. If you’re withdrawing your money in small chunks but keeping a small amount in your PayPal account, keep it up— just be consistent about it. Just don’t let your money accumulate for weeks and months, and then do an enormous withdrawal. First of all, there is no good reason for you to be keeping a ton of money in your PayPal account. Remember, it’s not a bank. You should be planning for the worst. If PayPal decides to limit your account, and that’s where all your money is tied up, that’s going to be very bad news for you. Furthermore, if you receive a very large influx of cash in a short period of time—especially in the earlier stages of your internet marketing career—you’d be especially wise to not withdraw it all at once, as this could definitely appear suspicious. If someone were to do a chargeback and PayPal found that there was no money in your account, they’d still be responsible for returning the money. Obviously, they don’t want this to happen. Furthermore, you’ll need money in your account to honor refund requests. So, to reiterate: Take your money out consistently and in small chunks, but leave a small percentage of that money in the account at all times.

Not Providing Your Social Security Number and Other Personal/Business Info Once you begin earning a living from internet marketing, you’ll need to consider it as you would any other source of income. And like all sources of income, you’re going to need to pay taxes on it. Some years ago, the IRS asked PayPal to supply their users’ social security numbers in order to help with this process. So consider this: How is it going to look if someone is clearly running a profitable business utilizing PayPal, but has yet to provide PayPal with something as vital to the income tax process as a social security number? In addition, try to fill out all parts of the Profile section of your PayPal account as completely as possible. The more honest info PayPal sees here, the lower the chances that they’ll feel need to make further investigations.

You’re Not Officially a Business Want to look more legit in PayPal’s eyes? Make yourself a corporation, and upgrade to a business PayPal account.

Frankly, if you’re serious about building a real business, this is something you should be doing anyway.

You’ve Given Out Too Many Refunds One of the nice things about PayPal is that it allows you to easily provide customers with refunds should they request them. However, issuing too many refunds might look a bit suspicious to PayPal. If nothing else, PayPal may feel the need to take a closer look at your account. After all, a business that is processing a high volume of refunds is likely not a very solid business. Certainly not the kind of business that PayPal would want to be associated with. One common trend amongst internet marketers is to offer full no-questions-asked refunds on their products. The safety net that the seller has provided for the buyer will often result in a higher volume of sales that outweighs the volume of refunds. The problem with this strategy is that when you make it very easy for a customer to request a refund, there will inevitably be more refunds requested. Consider making your refund policies something more restrictive. For example, you might only allow refunds if the product does not function as stated in the sales letter. Or, you might only allow a refund if the user made a serious effort to use the product, and it has not worked as anticipated. You might get a few less sales if you’re not able to splash a big “Refunds for all!!” message. However, the tradeoff may be worth the sales hit. Another thing you might consider: Instead of giving refunds, offer to send the customer their money back as a gift. Include a generic message with the transaction, and make it a slightly higher amount than the original purchase to avoid suspicion.

People are Filing Disputes Against You Picture this scenario: Someone purchases one of your products. They’re not happy with it for whatever reason, and they want a refund. They check out the product’s text, your website, your sales letter, and there’s no mention of a refund policy anywhere, and they’re not sure how to directly e-mail you. So rather than do any further research, they file a dispute with PayPal, which isn’t a particularly difficult thing to do. And PayPal is not going to like that, especially if it happens often enough. The best way to avoid this sort of thing is to fully disclose your refund policy and your contact information in a place where it is fully visible to the buyer. For example, if you’ve created a WSO, you might include a page at the end with this information. If a customer insists on receiving a refund that does not fall within the limitations set by your clearly defined refund policy, then you should still consider issuing the refund to avoid a dispute. Issuing a refund might not be ideal, but it’s a hell of a lot better than dealing with the repercussions of disputes.

Your Business or Product Does Not Meet PayPal’s Guidelines As an internet marketer, there is a chance that you’ll run into problems here. PayPal does not allow for transactions that: “support pyramid or ponzi schemes, matrix programs, other “get rich quick” schemes or certain multi-level marketing programs” Hopefully, you’re not involved in anything like this! However, should PayPal review your business, they may mistakenly believe that your transactions revolve around something shady. If your sales letter promises vast riches for a small amount of work (as many do, unfortunately), this could definitely be categorized by PayPal into the “get rich quick” category. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t let your potential buyers know that they can make a good deal of money from your products. Just be careful when making wild promises, because that’s what could get you in trouble. Use moderation in your sales copy, and PayPal (not to mention your buyers) will like you. Furthermore, remember to be specific when describing how your product works, rather than giving people some vague “you can make lots of money from these secrets” pitch. If it’s evident to PayPal that your product is legit, then they’ll have no reason to suspend you. Another phrase that can raise red flags with PayPal is “make money from home”, which would fall under the same banner as “get rich quick” schemes. So bear that in mind when writing your sales copy.

Your Website Looks Scammy When you log into PayPal, one of your options under Profile -> My Personal Info -> Business Information (which, by the way, you should definitely set up) is Business URL. If you put in a website that has a big sales page or squeeze page, it’s not going to look good if PayPal does a review (as I covered on the previous page). Even with the tips I provided, it still might appear to be a scam to a less perceptive viewer. They deal with these types of sites all day, and have become very attuned to anything that looks remotely scammy. A big hype-filled sales/squeeze page combined with the “make money online” niche is not going to scream “legit business” to PayPal. Set up a corporate site for your business. Don’t try to actually sell anything from this page, just keep it bland. Include all the information you’d expect to find on a corporate site (Contact Information, Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions, Disclaimer, Disclosure, all that jazz). If PayPal investigates your account, having a legitimate looking website could be the key to keeping you out of trouble. A side note: Include your legal text within your products as well. I still recommend following the guidance on the previous page regardless of whether you have a corporate site, as a means of preparation if PayPal does a more thorough investigation.

You Are Linked in Some Way to Another Suspended Account If your account is suspended, it might be tempting to just start up a new account with a different e-mail address. Don’t do it. You probably filled out a lot of information within your previous account that PayPal could use to link the two accounts together—if not right away, then at some point in the future. PayPal does not mess around when it comes to this kind of thing, so don’t try to game the system.

So, What If You DO Get Suspended? Getting suspended certainly does suck. But it’s not the end of the world (or your business) either, provided you have a backup. While you’re sorting things out with PayPal, you have other options in the world of online transactions. Chief among these is AlertPay, which functions in a very similar manner to PayPal. With a bit of effort, you should be able to ensure that funds directed toward you are being transferred to your AlertPay account rather than PayPal. You probably won’t want to make this a long-term solution—PayPal is a much more widely-known and widely-used system, and people tend to be more willing to transfer money through it than other services. Still, in the absence of PayPal, AlertPay should do in a pinch. PowerPay has also gained an excellent reputation for supporting internet marketers’ needs. Other popular alternatives with which I’m less familiar include Moneybookers, Google Checkout, 2checkout, and 1ShoppingCart.

But How Do I Deal With PayPal? You should deal with PayPal in the same way you’d deal with any other customer service department: Be courteous, be persistent, and don’t be afraid to ask to speak to a supervisor. Or, perhaps the specific person who actually suspended your account. Demand that your business be given more than a cursory review. You may not get what you want, but a relentless attitude will certainly help your odds.

Conclusions Don’t fear PayPal—they’d rather work with you than work against you. And if you’re following their guidelines (and can prove it when push comes to shove), then you have very little to worry about. Hopefully, this guide has made you more aware of what you should do to keep in PayPal’s good graces.
