Flipper Zero vs. PayPal

Flipper Zero is a company that sells a very unique device call it an all in one for anyone who loves tech.

It can do remote key less, radio, those touch less cards we all seem to carry these days,NFC, Bluetooth, IR, it can replace remotes, has a micro SD card slot, it even encourages the user to hack the device.

So you might be wondering what does this had to do with PayPal? You see on June 7th they opened their Online store with a PayPal option who is now holding $1.3 Million that rightfully belongs to Flipper Zero for 2 months. According to their posts they are at a critical time for their business and they need the money.

It isn’t like Flipper Zero isn’t sending over these devices. In fact they are at 163 Euros a piece. But it seems no matter what they do PayPal won’t turn over the cash.

Pay Pal Debacle

PayPal is drawing flak from the Web for almost being the Grinch who stole Christmas. The popular Etsy spoof blog called Regretsy set up a charity drive to collect donations to buy toys for children in need. In order to collect the donations, Regretsy put a PayPal “donate” button on the site. After receiving a flood of contributions, PayPal suddenly froze the account, forcing Regretsy to return the money. Why? Well, PayPal allows only nonprofit charities to use the donate button, and Regretsy is a for-profit company. Regretsy would need to put a “buy” button on the site instead. And according to two posts (this link is not safe for work) on Regretsy, PayPal also kept the transaction fees. Thousands of outraged Regretsy users commented on those two posts. Then, they quickly migrated over to PayPal’s Facebook page. This prompted an apology from PayPal, saying “We can confirm the funds have been released.” But even an apology did not stop the online venom. Thousands of people kept criticizing PayPal on their Facebook pages, vowing to close their accounts.
