After reading a ton and making a few purchases through the forum, I struggled with the Pay Pal thing. This is a public forum so I'll try to stay on the diplomatic side - but Pay Pal is not a bank and I trust them to the same degree I expect a politician to do what they have promised. It might feel good in the moment but is usually rotten if pay close enough attention. So said non banking "I'll hold your money for you while you're not using it" firm kind of gives me that same nausea in my stomach . I fully understand it fills a niche.
That being said I have just signed up with PP after initially resisting and have a simple question...
When you make a purchase from a CPF merchant, usually the OP/vendor asks you to pay with PP and then post in the specific thread saying that you have done so. Is there any reason why a person should or shouldn't include the Pay Pal Unique Transaction ID in their public posts? Is this safe? Can this ID be used by anyone (for either good or bad purposes), or is it better left as private information between the buyer/seller.
Thanks for any thoughts.
