Well, I don't think it takes much to know that this is not a good company or companies.

Just to let the ants know, that the grasshoppers, after you delete your financial information for pre-payments, and get a confirmation, it doesn't work. They are leeches.

Happy leeches to all you ebayers out there!

Please explain further

AUTHOR: Mike - (U.S.A.)

KJ,

I've tried to understand exactly what you are claiming to be a rip off but so far all I can ascertain is that you're mad that you tried to cancel your paypal account and ebay or someone you still owed money to took fees?

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, give a clear concise run down of what happened to you for you to claim PayPal is a rip off. And please, no insect references or claims that Ebay fees are equivalent to loan sharking because, no offense, it just makes you sound a bit nutty. Just a clear understandable description of what exactly happened to you so we cna try to help. Thanks

That makes no sense KJ

AUTHOR: Dave - (U.S.A.)

I sell classic cars and parts on Ebay. Strickly a hobby, I don't have a 'shop' or 'store' on Ebay.

So, I sell a car for 16K. There is a $40.00 fee to list, and about a $45-50 final value fee when it sells. So, it costs me less than $100 to make $16,000.

I sell a $50.00 part. It costs about 1.25 to place the ad, and another buck or so when the item sells. So, that's around $2-3 to make $50.

So, if someone racks up hundreds of dollars in fees, that means they have made THOUSANDS of dollars in sales. Yes, they are required to pay. As it's only fair, since they wouldn't have made that much money if it hadn't been for Ebay, or any other venue they chose to sell from.

So, your logic doesn't compute. How can it be illegal to collect fees because Ebay doesn't put a cap on seller's accounts?? Doesn't make any sense at all.

Isn't that Loan Sharking

AUTHOR: Kj - (U.S.A.)

I was responding to subscriptions and the like that sometimes cause legitimate calamities, like with webhosting companies that ignore cancellations, and the like.

But if Ebay, doesn't put a limit on peoples Seller Accounts, then technically that is against the law to collect the money any way they want any time they want.

There are priorities in life. Life isn't perfect. If a person is poor, and they sell on ebay for extra money, and rack up too high of a bill, that is similar to gambling, lottery laws, and even loan-sharking.

Paypal has lot's of glitches and doesn't cancel subscriptions

AUTHOR: Kj - (U.S.A.)

There are times when signing up for subscriptions gets overly automated. Sometimes with hosting companies, sometimes with skin creams, etc. Even after cancelling, they put the charge through automatically. The customer has to dig up proof that they paid. With Paypal, this is often the case, but I think they've gotten better with it.

What they haven't gotten better with is using your bank account. Even when you have a credit card and bank account, they don't allow you to use any other method than the bank account.

I know that when you pay, they still will default to the bank account, and that can cause errors, but they do allow you to change the payment method.

Whoever wrote, "that's the only way it can happen is if you aren't trying to pay your Ebay fees" is obviously trying to pull the wool over everyone's eyes.

The only way that can happen is if you owe them money

AUTHOR: Dave - (U.S.A.)

Just because you deleted you bank and credit card info doesn't mean they still can't get their money if you owe it to them. It sounds like you didn't wan't to pay their fees, and thought by deleted your account info, they couldn't get their money... wrong, 'Ant'. They maintain a complete back-up system and even though you tried to scam your way out of paying, the backups have your information. It states write in your terms and conditions that they can collect their fees no matter what.
