|09:52 am - I'm alive, I'm alive...anyone sold things using paypal before??|
Barely, but I'm still alive. This semester's been an incredibly drag for some reason, and I only have 4 courses instead of the usualy 5. Thank goodness this is my last year because I don't think I can handle anymore. My procrastination's through the roof and I've been consistently skipping classes and/or handing in stuff late. For some reason this also seems to be the year my profs decided to start taking attendance >__<
Good heavens, I can't wait until this semester's over and I can start over on the new one, I think right off the bat I started this semester on the wrong foot or something.
Anyway, I've also been busy setting up a little online store which is why I've been so MIA lately (although I've been checking my f-list daily, so I'm keeping up with you guys, lol). For anyone on my f-list who has used paypal to receive money before, how does it work exactly?? The website I'm using to host my store automatically connected my store to my paypal account I think, but I don't know if I have to do anything on my part over on paypal so that I can receive money. I've sent money using paypal before, I have a verified account over there, so if someone using their paypal just types in my email and click "send money" will it reach me or is there some activation I have to do so that I can receive money into my paypal account?
Yes, instead of writing my assignments I'm setting up a store, go priorities~

It's been awhile since I last used PayPal. But unless they changed their format, the sender just needs to have your e-mail address to send you money. Since you already have a PayPal account, the amount should show up in your PayPal account directly. If your account isn't set up to receive money for whatever reason, they should notify you by e-mail and guide you through the process.
Perfect, that's what I suspected but I thought I'd ask to be sure.
fourth-year courses are usually seminar-style classes, and participation counts. that's why attendance is taken.
I only have 1 seminar class. The rest aren't seminar-styled but there's less people per class than previous years which makes it possible for the profs to actually take attendance, making it a pain in the behind.
lol all my classes were seminar classes.. i'm not sure if they were described as such on the timetable or on the course description but yeah all my pol4000's were "seminars". attendance was taken in every single one. D:
actually attendance was taken in every class i took last year.. that was a serious pain.
It's SUCH a pain when profs take attendance, and it annoys me because it makes me feel like I'm back in high school or something again.

Money sent via direct debit and from funds already on the sender's paypal account should arrive automatically. You may have to accept the payment once it reached your account, but it goes to your account automatically.
However, another thing is if you want to accept credit or debit card payments through Paypal (which you should consider if you're setting up a shop). For that you need an account that allows you to accept credit card payments. However, those payments often cost more fees. Receiving money generally costs fees, while sending doesn't unless it involves a currency conversion.
I just went to check out the options for the premium and business accounts on paypal and I think I accidentally upgraded to premium XD I thought I had to pay or something just to upgrade, but apparently I only have to pay if someone now sends me money through CC. Oh the joys of cyber-transactions, lol.
