PooPail Question
 
Thinking about signing up. <I know. I live in the Stone Age>

What do you guys and gals use? A bank account? A credit card? Both?

I'd prefer to use a bank account but am reluctant to provide my online banking credentials which would allow them access to all of my accounts.

For those that use credit cards, how does it work with the rewards programs? If I get 2% back on everything, will I get that 2% back on PP payments?

Feedback is welcome and appreciated.

I use a debit card connected to my bank account, have been using it for years (close to 10) that way and never had any issues what so ever with actual company and have been helped when seller faulted on deal and they refunded purchase amount to me within 24 hours of contact.

I may be wrong but I believe the way it is set up now is that it may have to be a card connected to an account, so unsure on rewards for Credit cards. But my debit card is a cash back type and I do get the kickbacks on it.

If you have a smart phone the app will give you notifications of purchases made on the account which are customizable for amounts ect.

I have mine tied to my bank account. I don't pay fees because of this. A charge to a credit card is a charge, so you should get points.

I'm fairly certain that you don't provide them with your online banking credentials and access to all of your accounts, just the routing and account numbers for whichever account you plan to use.
They have access to my checking account, but not my savings. :2

I have a checking account and two savings accounts tied to my online banking. I was thinking of using one of the savings accounts for PP but by providing my credentials, PP would have access to all three. They claim they don't retain that info and only use it to set up the account.

Am I being overly cautious about this?

I have them linked like Dom. I probably use PP 8-10 times a month, and have never ha an issue.

I haven't signed up yet. But their video showing how to add a bank account involves selecting the bank and then the online credentials to access the account.

This was my experience as well.

I have my checking account linked as my primary funding source. PP doesn't have access to the other accounts (savings, money market, etc) attached to my checking.

In addition, I have a credit card as a back-up funding source.

You don't want to use a credit card as your primary source if you can avoid it as there are fees involved with every purchase transaction. Funding via a bank account, you can bypass those fees.

Never had a problem, it's like linking any other financial accounts and it's nice to be able to have money that is in pay pal sent directly to your bank, so the linking does pay off because not having to pay transaction fees.

see this website (change the spelling of POOPAIL)

www. POOPAIL .com/us/selfhelp/article/how-do-i-link-a-bank-account-to-my-POOPAIL-account-faq686

It looks like providing credentials is optional if you want to express the process, but you don't have to do it

If it's just the routing number and account number, I'm fine with that.
What I'm leery of is providing my login credentials which allows access to all of my accounts.

I did not provide anything but the routing and acct numbers....unless things have changed since I signed up, like Vin said, you shouldn't have to.

+1. I signed up a long time ago and I just did the routing and account info.

Thanks for all the feedback. Routing number for my checking account is easy. But I want to use a savings account. I think I need to contact my bank for the routing number tied to my savings account.

Some savings accounts don't allow ACH withdrawals such as the type by heygal I know mine didn't so that's why I linked it to checking via my debit card.

I'm guessing that may be the case for me.

Same for me. I have my checking account linked to avoid fees with a credit card for backup if I need it.

The only problem I have had is my account was put on hold because PP thought I had too many Friends and Family transactions. Apparently they didn't realize most of my friends and family live in Europe! ;)

I have had a poopail account for over 10 years with my checking account tied to it and never had ANY problems at all. I just provided the routing and account number. when you check out at a site that you are using poopail as payment it pops up a secure poopail window that you sign into and complete the transaction then it returns you to the original page where the payment shows usually.

Re: PooPail Question
 
On the news last night suggested that you use a credit card for PooPail, not your bank account. This was based on the fact that if you get hacked, they can clean out your bank account and not have any way to contest it or get your money back. They strongly advised you to use a credit card.

1. Do not link your ****** to a bank account or debit card. A scammer could really take you for a ride if they can access to your account. This lets scammers drain or even overdraft your bank account.

2. Do link your ****** to a credit card. This offers you an extra layer of fraud protection. Experts say this lets you dispute a fraud charge on two fronts. Experts say that way you're more likely to get your money back.

3. Never click on links in e-mails from ******. They might not really be from ******. Scammers can lead you to a dummy site where. When you put in your information, scammers steal it. This is called spoofing and itís common. ****** has 200 million users worldwide giving scammers many targets.

I tried to post the link, put had to switch it to Poopail in order to post it. You can click on the link and correct it to get to the article.
