    Just got a Bill Me Later bill. Did you know that Paypal will send payment via BillMeLater rather than to your designated payment method you have on Paypal.
    Here's the problem. I usually throw my mail from BML. Just so happened I opened this one, it was a bill with a balance.

    Contacting BML who sent me to Paypal who sent me to BML who sent me to Paypal, Called again cause my wireless phone ran out of battery!LOL
    back to BML finally got somebody to say that Paypal will send payments via BML as a default. You have to manually go to your PayPal and take this option off. And you have to go DEEP into the site.
    Here how.
    Log on
    Main Menu go to Profile and click(don't worry about the drop down menu click profile)
    go to MyMoney
    go to Edit account info
    go to I prefer to pay
    notice a nice separate box on the left that say Manage Bill Me Later Account
    go to Make Beil Me Later preferred way to pay
    go to My other Payment sources
    finally hit SAVE

    here is my issue with this practice
    if you default on the payment a $35.00 late fee is charged.
    surprise. of course they will wave it if you call them and plead ignorance, which is what I bet is true.(for me anyway)

    new ways for making money, huh!!!!!!
    not happy at this.:mad:

    Thanks for the heads up, as I'm in the same situation with BML/PP.
    How clever, just like the banks.. Anything to generate 'suck-you-dry' fees.
