Paypal unregulated by Financial Services Authority?[edit]

The article states (without citation) that, due to Paypal being based in Luxembourg, it is not under the regulation of the UK Financial Services Authority.

This is not true. PayPal's own site states "PayPal (Europe) Ltd. is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority in the United Kingdom as an electronic money institution. PayPal FSA Register Number: 226056." - an example of this is on https://www.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=xpt/Marketing/general/PorschePennyPromotionTnC-outside

FSA regulates any company offering financial services within the UK, regardless of where that company's headquarters are located.

PayPal's delisting from the FSA is cited in the article. PayPal's own site is not acceptable as a Wikipedia reference because it is not the required secondary source. Similarly, your link above is not a secondary source. If you wish to assert that PayPal is regulated by the FSA (and for all I know it may be), then you require that important secondary, reliable and verifiable source to support it. 86.149.139.47 (talk) 17:04, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

PayPal banning file-hosting services[edit]

http://torrentfreak.com/paypal-bans-major-file-hosting-services-over-piracy-concerns-120710/

This should be added under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PayPal#Criticism_and_limitations

Escrow[edit]

Perhaps, PayPal has some features of an online escrow service. Should be mentioneded in the article. --Djadjko (talk) 22:45, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Possible Name Change to PayPal Holdings[edit]

I believe the article's name should be changed to PayPal Holdings because that's the company's new name. Michealin (talk) 18:11, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
