I sold an item on Ebay for $175 with $25 shipping for a total of $200. Ebay/PayPal provides the option to pay for shipping and ship via Ebay/PayPal. I paid for the shipping and Ebay/PayPal generated a shipping address label, which I printed out. After I printed the Ebay/PayPal generated shipping label, the buyer changed the address where to send the item, and so was shipped to the original address on file and not the new shipping address. The item had a tacking number and had a confirmed delivery to the original address and buyer, meaning the buyer got the item at his address in Florida, but not to the new address (he wanted it to go to his brother in Nebraska. The buyer admits receiving the item, but the buyer claimed “Item not Received.” Ebay sided with the buyer even though the buyer in fact got the item, and Ebay then issued the buyer a full refund. So, I am out the item and the $200. I plan to sue in small claims court
I purchased something via paypal. I was charged in both my paypal account and my paypal credit account (double charged). I called to find out what was going one (not the first time this error happened). The representative wouldn’t even tell me if I made my purchase with my paypal acct or my paypal credit acct. He wouldn’t check to see if I actually had two separate charges from the company. All he kept doing was telling me to contact the seller over and over without listening to me. I’m fairly certain the seller only got $26.00.
Now paypal wants me to file a dispute against a company who only got paid once. I wish I could file a dispute against paypal. I guess that’s not an option. This is awful. I’m glad I never linked my bank account to these idiots or trusted them with any real amount of money.
PayPal was loving me (at first) because I was getting lots of sales and they [PayPal] was getting their precious “fees”. But then suddenly, one day I got an email saying that my account was limited; I couldn’t figure out why, then I looked into my account to find that there was one ticked off buyer (from eBay, of course) because she hadn’t gotten her item in a “timely manner” (although I had already given her tracking info) and she had paid for the item. I kept in constant contact with the buyer and with PayPal and eBay, but PayPal ended up giving refunds to multiple of my buyers that were all angry because they didn’t receive their items in “timely manners” but when I looked further into my account, I noticed that ALL the buyer were ones that had made purchases while PayPal did the whole 21 day funds hold thing— See, I pay for shipping for my buyers, but I couldn’t ship
I’m a 26 year old entrepreneur who has been having hard time after hard time for years. My first paypal run in happened when I was 19. Somebody hacked my paypal, email and ebay account and $4300 was passed through the account, first $2000 transaction popped up in my email and I ignored it. Why? because i wasn’t selling anything on ebay and it looked to me like one of those email spam attempts to get your information by convincing you to login through the email link. The second transaction popped up 5 days later and i thought hmmmm, let me investigate. I log in to my paypal and find over $2000 has been transferred out already and theres $2300 in there now! So i called paypal, I immediately let them know that this is not me and I was told that paypal was unhackable and now i was suddenly responsible for over $4000….i was 19 at the time, I didn’t have $4k and I could not understand how i’m responsible for it.
My account was limited because a customer filed a return request and I refunded the money and I relisted the same item and ebay removed the item and suspended my account for 7 days I relisted it again and they said that I was selling counterfeit merchandise and completely limited my account I had $390 in my paypal account and that is frozen I wrote them gave them the product key code of the software along with the UPC code of item they emailed me back and said that they needed additional information to restore my account to normal and ask that I supply them with copies of all of the receipts for all of the software that I have sold on Ebay since 2011 to present I don’t have that info a lot of it was lost in a vehicle fire in Sept of 2014. My money is frozen I cant buy anything I have a 100% positive feedback score.
On Sept. 25th I ordered a total of $486.52 worth of merchandise; clothing, handbags and jewelry from an on-line company that goes by several different names. To date, I have received approx. 1/4 of the entire order (170.00 worth) of absolute shit merchandise separated into 3 different shipments spread out over 8 weeks. Most of the jewelry was broken (missing stones or chain). The clothing wouldn’t fit a small 7 year old and is covered in threads and faulty workmanship. One handbag was molded.Two others had broken zippers. Here’s the game they play. You contact their “customer service” and they respond to you to “be patient” and “good luck”. When you press for satisfaction (either merchandise or refund) they really start to back-pedal. They ask for missing SKU numbers. They tell you to get “compensation” from your Post Office (none of my 3 small shipments came US mail) They claim
