PayPal actually takes longer than the US Postal Service. I don't have much experience with online payment methods, but I set up an account so I could use it on my Etsy because it looked to me simple, quick and convieniant. Maybe the word "Pal" in the name misled me so... Anyway, it's taking forever! It would have been quicker to accept personal checks through the post.
Very discouraging. Maybe I will make personal checks a new payment option, I'm just careful about having my name and adress available to people I've never met.
