To start out our day, do you have your summer vacation planned yet? Where's your favorite place to go on vacation and why?
I really enjoy conventions and seminars that have to do with my hobbies. The thing is, I hardly ever actually attend all the specific events and classes I sign up for. Once I get there, it's like being at summer camp with a bunch of other people who have the same interests. The actual seminars and events don't even matter as much as does hanging out with the folks who share my interests, and I end up getting carried away with socializing!
Great topic! I do have my summer planned; and that leads me to my question. I booked a flight for my summer vacation yesterday and used "Bill me Later." Everything went fine - all was approved and the ticket issued. However, as of today, i have still not seen anything posted to my PayPal account, nor have I received any e-mail about a bill or payment. Is there typically a delay in all of this taking place? I don't even seen a "Bill Me Later" icon on my Paypal overview page yet. Just want to be sure that everything is okay and that i get billed properly. Thanks!
Welcome to the Community forums, and the chat. Please hang out and tell us all about your summer plans!
It sounds like you may not have your Bill Me Later linked up to your PayPal account. Take a look at Andy's post about linking Bill Me Later to get it straightened out.
I hope this helps. Let us know what happened!
I have been on vacation several places in the US that I have really enjoyed as well as Mexico. Last year, my family went to South Dakota (to tell you the truth, I was not excited until I actually got their). This is a great place for family vacations, with so much to do. We are going to go back this summer for a second vacation. I am really looking forward to it.
I don't have anything planned yet. I also don't really have a favorite vacation location. My favorite place to go on vacation is the place I've never been to before. I like exploring new places.
I don't have anything planned yet... But I will probably be spending a lot of my time studying ... Paypal and eBay and how they and we all will co-exist !!
I am new, and I have made 2 eBay related purchases, and both went smooth.. (with help from someone here who knows who they are ) .. I do have a question about my 2nd purchase, I received my emails from eBay( item purchased,money sent, money received and one update giving my tracking number) and updates on my Account Overview... On my Paypal Overview, it also showed the purchase/info... but never showed any "details" about the item shipped or a Paypal or giving me my tracking number. Where I did receive most of the info from eBay, I wasn't too concerned, except for no actual shipping/tracking info from either eBay or Paypal... Just wondering.....
Glad to see you made it! You had me all worried you wouldn't get here today Kick back and relax!
To answer your question, it's possible the merchant may not have shipped it yet or they are using a shipping method that doesn't include tracking. I would recommend going back and checking in on the auction. If it says something along the lines of standard shipping (usually USPS), this is probably the case and it could take 2-3 weeks to arrive via mail.
Yes, I found my way.... After my computer decided to freeze, so after I thawed it out... I got back on track !!!
Sorry... I left the important part out.... (Auction did say Standard) and I did receive my item in 2 days Priority.... so it went very smooth ...
What I meant to say was, when I was waiting for shipment.... I was checking in Paypal Overview to see when it would be shipped & tracking #... but that info didn't ever show up there.... it did have Delivery Confermation on it ... eBay sent me that.....
So, Seller probably shipped it from eBay and never sent the shipping info into Paypal ??
