really getting sick of corporate copy writers' bullshit, friends

y'know what would really improve my experience on your site, Paypal? less bullshit while you try and productize my use of your sketch-ass services.

an entire bullshit industry built around processing payment transactions between two parties that exists solely because the financial institutions that already do this work, namely banks and credit unions, continue to use the oldest, least capable systems for handling bank transfers possible while they turn around and underwrite the IPOs of these shit companies. fucking rackets everywhere. and I cannot stand tennis goddammit!

@djsundog here in Canada, the inter-bank network that handles debit payment transactions just decided to build a simple consumer money transfer system. interac.ca/en/consumers/produc and it can be used directly from the websites and mobile apps of most banks. In most cases for transfers from personal chequing accounts, no fees.


@kepstin @djsundog I'm getting ripped off. My credit union charges me a single Canadian dollar to send an e-transfer from either my chequing or savings account.

@kepstin @djsundog I always thought it was so fucking weird that Venmo or cashapp even existed. Like what is the point??? Now I see it's just shameless, inept greed.

@Mainebot @djsundog I assume the larger banks are just absorbing whatever fees there are (if any) and making it back on business accounts and other products :/
