Limited with no prior warning and no resolution in sight
I have been trading on eBay for a while for a bit of extra income, after my work dried up I started selling full time, Then, on Jan 1st I went to draw some money into my bank, but to my horror my paypal account was restricted, with no prior warning with $2400+ in there which I needed to get the items for my customers, as I drop ship a lot of things!
I have no funds in my bank, I quickly did all the things paypals website said I needed to in order to restore my account, It’s still not active- the website said can be sorted withing 48 hours, BULLSHIT! I phoned up- I was then told it could take up to 14 days, I phoned back the next day to check on any progress, And was now advised that it’s normally MORE than 14 days, AT THIS TIME OF YEAR! They oviously block people for selling more just before x-mas… The operator confirmed this to me!
I phone back again on the 4th and was told it could take THIRTY DAYS OR MORE!!!
On asking to speak to a supervisor I was informed “they will only tell you what i’m telling you” After insisting repeatedly, my request was granted- I am still waiting for a supervisor/senior member to phone me back- They haven’t broken a promise on that one (yet) though, as they told me it will be in the middle of next week before a supervisor can get round to phoning me!
They obviously don’t care who they shit on, I am disgusted by them, why the hell can’t they notify people before restrictions are applied? perhaps they could issue users with a two week grace period to gather the required info, and place a restriction only if the info doesn’t get sent in or IF they find any wrongdoing
I have two children, and no other work at the minute, so I set about building an honest business to pay the bills, this has been ripped from under me all because of paypals stupid policy
