Ebay - PaypalInternet United States of America
I am a long time eBay/PayPal user and just completed 2 sales withing a week of each other. I have 60 transactions and 100% feedback. The first transaction with PayPal was fine. High bidder won, high bidder paid via PayPal, I shipped item. Good deal. Second transaction for same type of item (both high -end hand saws), no moving parts, just a saw. eBay pended the payment within PayPal for 21 days. My payment terms were "upon receipt of payment, I will ship item (free shipping btw). After contacting Ebay, a chore in itself, I was told I don't have enough activity as a seller, thus the pend.
Un frigging believable! Both the seller, me, and my buyer are inconvenienced as I will not ship until payment is received. "Pending" ain't 'received' thus I won't ship so my buyer is po'd as well. Way to eBay - fine business practice you've got going on. Thanks for assuming fraud on my part. After speaking with a 'supervisor' they will lift the pend after 24 hours and I will ship my item. I am done with eBay/PayPal and will rely on Craigslist or the classified ads. I spent way too much time and burnt way too many emotional calories on this simple little transaction. I've have got to assume there is a lot of fraud going on within the eBay community for them to take such confiscatory measures which reinforces my decision to bail out of the on-line auction arena. I would suggest readers to think twice before using the eBay method to sell/buy items. The whole thing as an odor about it. I am trying to be a nice person.
