This is related to James B's Ebay presentation last week. Paypal have been fined $150,000 (http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/03/08/paypal.fined.ap/index.html) after misrepresenting to consumers its policy on repayment when merchandise doesn't arrive.

Stupid of them. They should have read Ester Dyson re the central importance of online trust. Its hard to build and easy to destroy.
I was going to remark that PayPal have almost as good a business model as Ebay: having built the technology it only remains for them to sit back and enjoy the GOD of the web (=Greatest Online Delight =watchng the dollars roll in).
