Anyway, if you go to your account balance line, there is a link "Show Limits" or some such. It might tell you exactly what you must do in order to send money. It's something like either add a bank account or add a credit card. I opened a free bank account that I use with PayPal and nothing else. Then, PayPal balance can be transfered to someone else's PayPal account or to that bank account following being emptied into a main bank account.

Once you initiate having a bank account linked with PayPal, it will take 2-3 business days before you are able to confirm it.

See the link in the post.

PayPal started as an easier service, but after the ball started to roll, PayPal made their service increasingly difficult. It seems that every day that goes by with someone else's funds frozen in their system it is one step closer for it to be abandoned to them.

PayPal is good only because everybody else uses it; you'll lose business if you don't have it. It's a decent compromise to open a dedicated bank account to use with PayPal only and have a "personal" account, not a "premier" account, so you don't get charged. Then, you just can't accept credit card payments.
