Paypal cancelled payment after I shipped

Re: Paypal cancelled payment after I shipped

you need to call Ebay and ask what kind of seller protection do you have,since you have already shipped the item with tracking?

Re: Paypal cancelled payment after I shipped

This just happened to me as well. I sold an item on ebay on 1/27/18 and got notice that I had received payment that same day. I shipped the item on 1/29/18 and it has been received by the buyer. This morning I got an email from Paypal saying my payment was cancelled. Looking through the records on Paypal I see the following when I switch to the classic site.. "

Reason: 

This payment was automatically returned by PayPal on Jan 27, 2018 because the funds were unclaimed for 30 days.

I was not aware that I somehow had to "collect the funds," I'm not even sure how to do this. And it hasn't even been 30 days yet! It's been just over a week. So now the buyer has received the item and I'm out the $305 I was supposed to be paid. How can PayPal and eBay allow this to happen??

Today is Feb 7,2018,so the 30 days expiration does not apply.

This message does not apply to your case.

what could happen is buyer uses bank transfer,since he has a credit card linked t o his paypal account,Paypal advance the money and pay you instantly and then go after his bank account,figure if it fails,it can always charge his credit card.

It turns out he has no money in his bank account or he closed his bank account and cancel his credit card,so Paypal just take the money back from you.

HI risk items which can easily be turned into cash are the ones which are being targeted
