All due respect but that is just bad mojo in general. We have had zero 
with paypal. We also don't use them as our primary payment. We use a real
merchant account and checking account for that.

However paypal is good for a lot of things. Namely you want to provide the
most ways to get paid (perfect for donations). It has also greatly increased
its security and viability sense that really big billion dollar company 
call E-bay
bought it.

We use Echo, which also accepts electronic check but remember we are talking
about donations here, not a for profit accepting credit cards.
