Please pardon the hyperbole in the thread title. Paypal is requiring me to create some sort of account to get the remaining $.67 of a refund issued to me. Paypal will not transfer it back to my bank account because it is under $1.

I noticed a while back that my bank account is being billed 2x for ebay transactions. It appears paypal is billing taxes separately. If one makes more than one ebay purchase at the same time, it's a little confusing.

Has anyone else noticed this new "red tape?" I know it's not a big deal, but I find it annoying.

How bout if somebody deposits $.33 to your Paypal? (Assuming the $.67 is already in your Paypal account) That will bring it up to $1.00 and you should be able to withdraw then. Don't know if it will work but it's an idea!

Yeah, I figure at some point I will get another refund that should bump me up to a dollar. Meanwhile, Paypal probably has a lot of money sitting in these <$1 accounts.

I am willing to donate the $0,33 to your Paypal, just to see how this one turns out...

Really no sarcasm here.

LOL, no that won't be necessary. I just don't care for them splitting transactions into 2 parts. Each transaction shows up twice on the bank account, and it's just messy. The hostage $.67 is just a byproduct. I could create whatever account they want me to make, if I was really worried about it.
