Signing up on ukworkshop I was offered a discount on membership and the perks of selling etc. Missing the offer I was then asked if I wanted to donate, I agreed as I wanted to advertise my woodworking machines here. Odly, after completing the credit card boxes payment was refused asking me to pay by paypal. Paypal are, to me, a bunch of S***$. Years I had a PP account, before being forced to by ebay if you wanted to sell on there. In around 2019 PP rolled out this two form factor thing asking me to input a mobile number, as that was a secure means to access account. I have no mobile I told them, no worries, download the app. DOH! Another message was to download the pc two form log in from symantec. Done that and still no joy as they too wanted a mobile to send code to! PP froze my account because I did not comply. They refued to explain how a mobile, which can be lost, stolen and hacked is far safer than the landline plugged into my wall? In the years with them my banking details, phone number, address and email remained unchanged. Contacting the EU banking dept they confirmed a mobile was not a legal requirement for banking. PP refused to answer that and gave me 24 hours to empty my funds. A bunch of S***$. Explained this an meesage to admin here asking if I could send a cheque but sadly no reply. Today, another request and again the form states PP. I have no intention to rejoin PP and nor would I advocate using them.
