Ebay may be a good place to find cheap items, but it is a rip off to sellers. Ebay tries to portray an image of helping the little guy. They show examples of people who have quit there jobs to stay home and sell on ebay and even single moms who are stay at home moms.

I went on Ebay to pay my ebay seller fees. I had about $43.00 in my paypal account. I was trying to pay $20.00 to Ebay. The payment went through for $61.80. This not only drained my paypal account, but put me in the negative. Paypal told me ebay had to refund the payment, Ebay told me paypal had to refund it. They are both owned by Ebay Inc. No one at either place can get me any info to contact them. No one can help at either place.

I have sold ebay items that I can't mail out because the moneys been drained. therefore, people who have bought things on Ebay will NOT get them. Thank ebay and paypal.

Apparently Ebay is only interested in big business sellers. They don't care about a mom staying home caring for kids, trying to pick up extra cash on ebay to help her hard working husband pay medical bills for a sick infant.

First of all, Ebay does not discriminate on any one on how much you sell or buy. Ebay is a trade where people can buy or sell by trading. I have been a customer for almost 4years. I think Ebay does a lot of people favors by saving them money. Im just courious, why are you whining over 40 or 50 bucks. Come on, dont you have more money then that. Why dont you fund your bank so you wont have this problems.

First here is Paypals #:
PayPal Customer Service agents are available to help you from 4:00 AM PDT to 10:00 PM PDT every day.

We must verify the following information with the account holder before we can discuss any specifics about the account. Please have this information available when you call:

* The telephone number listed on your account
* The last 4 digits of your credit card or bank account registered with PayPal

For general PayPal account inquiries, please call us toll-free at:

Ebay doesnt have any number but you can use the live help on their homepage. If in fact you owed Ebay that much money (through legit seller charges), chances are 0% that they will refund it to your paypal. And by not shipping out peoples items you are only hurting yourself since you will receive negative feedback and also people will file complaints and your account will end up closed. If you do not restore your paypal account within a month they will also close your account and send it to a collection agency, I had that happen to me. So be careful. Honestly it sounds like you made a mistake and paid the full amount even though you didn't have it in your account thus making your account go negative. I hope everything works out.
