If you have ever used the Payloadz service, you may be wondering how to cancel your Payloadz account. In fact, Payloadz doesn’t explain anywhere on the Payloadz.com site how to cancel their service, and contacting them may not even help. They just keep billing you every month through Paypal.

If you had or have a Paypal account that was active between 2006 and 2015 (and who hasn’t?) you may be entitled to money from Paypal under the settlement of a class action lawsuit against Paypal.

Odds are that if you did, you were on the receiving end of the newest engine for sending spam: Paypal (and odds are also good that it advertised Jaboo or skrylcomputers.com).
As we wrote about at the beginning of July, Paypal had rolled out a new user agreement, or Terms of Service (TOS) that included your agreeing to their robocalling or autodialing you, not just for account updates and fraud alerts, but for marketing as well. Now they have backed off from that.
Effective today, July 1, 2015, Paypal’s new User Agreement (Terms of Service) goes into effect. It contains lots of small changes, and one big one: You consent to receive autodialed or prerecorded calls and text messages from PayPal at any telephone number that you have provided us or that we have otherwise obtained. Which is why we’re putting together a list of Paypal numbers from which Paypal calls.
With the new Paypal interface, you may be wondering just “where the hell is my Paypal history?” And more specifically, how can I search my Paypal transaction history for an email address, a name, or a transaction or other ID, like you used to be able to do?

After 12 years together, eBay and PayPal will go their separate ways next year. Ever since eBay acquired PayPal for $1.3 billion in 2002, the two companies have been deeply intertwined, serving as the twin pillars of the eBay tech behemoth.

And what does the decision mean for you?
If you sell products online, and if you have a mailing list, you may find that you want to add products to your Paypal account for your mailing list API (such as the Aweber API) to use. For example, when you hook the Aweber API into Paypal, you can choose which mailing list the buyer of a given product gets signed up for by which product they have purchased.
