Hello, Staff

Currently, there is a section on the profile page called "Payment method accepted". If a user accepts PayPal etc, this is not stated in that section, however. PayPal etc is indicated at the top of the profile page, but not in the section where an outsourcer might also expect it to be, namely in the "Payment method accepted" section.

So for me, my profile says only "Payment method accepted: Wire transfer", thereby creating the impression that I accept *only* wire transfers.

Suggestion: if a user accepts PayPal, Moneybookers etc, mention that information in the "Payment method accepted" section of the profile page.

I find this strange too Mar 3, 2011

But I also notice that it is listed in some (random?) users’ profiles. Which suggests that this non-display is most likely a bug in need of fixing.

Referred to internal development Mar 3, 2011

Hello All,

Please note that the reason why PayPal payment method is shown at the top of profiles when a PayPal email address is entered in the "Financial" section of the Profile updater is to allow clients to go straight to PayPal to make a payment by clicking on the "PayPal" link ("PayPal" is made a hyperlink when visibility permissions are set to "Everyone").

Now, I agree that PayPal should also be available in the list of payment methods accepted. Let me refer this to internal development to have it adjusted.

Thanks for your patience.

how to add PayPal to the list of payment methods accepted Mar 4, 2011

Simply click on edit icon next to "Payment method accepted" on the main profile page, then under "Other payment methods you have listed:" there's a field called "Add payment method not listed:". Write in "PayPal" and you're done.
