PayPal provides you with buttons for customers to purchase your products from you. For some methods of password recovery, you are also instructed a link will be sent. Theres no way round it I need to send an immediate email to customers, what can I do? (and is it all correct and legal that customers don’t get to opt out of your list if paying through paypal?)
idcore, Welcome to the forums and an excellent call out! There are a few times when we do ask that you click on a hyperlink to complete an action, but we try to notify our members in advance we are sending an email with a hyperlink. We appreciate your attention to detail! Adrian Was my post helpful? If so, please give me a kudos!Did my post solve the issue? If so, please accept it as a solution!
If you receive a phishing or spoof email pretending to be from PayPal, or you’re unsure if it is from PayPal, please forward the email, including the header, to email@example.com. It states: “PayPal recently contacted you after having identified a problem.” It all looks quite official, but something told me not to click on the link. We welcome letters but cannot answer individually. Instead, open a new browser and log in to your account as normal. Just some advice for everyone! You’ll know that an email is not from PayPal when: The email uses a generic greeting like ‘Dear user’ or ‘Hello, PayPal member.’ We always address you by your first name and last name or the business name on your PayPal account. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Consumer Champions, Money, the Guardian, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU. The email includes an attachment, a software update to install on your computer, or a hyperlink Hope this helps!

Amanda from zsjewelry 4:57 pm Sep 10, 2015 EDT Marie, Etsy uses PayPal Express Checkout to process PayPal payments, and that is what this email is about.

Marie, Etsy uses PayPal Express Checkout to process PayPal payments, and that is what this email is about. Bank customers are also particular targets – the tone is designed to panic account holders into a quick response. It does not need to be reported to PayPal as a spoof, and contacting PayPal about it will only result in more confusion. For some methods of password recovery, you are also instructed a link will be sent. These emails are sent out by scammers in their thousands – if not millions – and are designed to try to get the unwary to log into their account using a fake link embedded in the email. Had you clicked on it and inputted your PayPal log-on and password, your account would almost certainly have been used to start buying items or worse. This message is really intended for Etsy’s web site developers, not shop owners. For example, an email from PayPal never asks for the numbers of your bank account, debit or credit card, or driver’s license. When I logged on to my account, all seemed normal. The scammers operate on the basis that a small percentage of recipients will fall for it, and hand over their details. The email requests financial and other personal information. Someone from Etsy’s development team needs to address this for shop owners. You may not only want to market your products through email, but you may also want to sell your products directly through email as well.Inserting a PayPal payment button into your message using the standard button code that PayPal provides will not work in email. Ignore any links to the company’s website in the email. While I can’t think of any other emails right off the top of my head, if you’re unsure, the best route is still to go directly to https://www.paypal.com and check there. But as it doesn’t trigger the opt-in emails so the ‘final welcome email’ doesn’t send and the auto responder page says this is the only way to send an immediate email, I’m at a loss as to what to do. However, do not worry as we have an alternative method for inserting that button that will work!
