Hi @bubobih,

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

It seems your account is experiencing 30-day settlement holds. When you receive a payment, the money goes into a pending balance. Payments usually stay in your pending balance for 30 days. Payments in your pending balance belong to you, but you can’t use or withdraw them.

I sent few times i even call over skype no luck for my account as u can see my account is totaly clear, not even 1 dispute i have also im a member from 2015 and i have perfect account.  

 

also:

 

  • The number of chargebacks, disputes, and reversals you have had.   ( i didnt have even 1 dispute)
  • Selling and withdrawal patterns in your account. I dont understand this one
  • How long you’ve had your PayPal account. 2015
  • The type of goods and services you sell ( dont sell i just recive money for my work so nobody send and wait shipping)

 

 

So few times from help and support they say i need 10k cap. and a girl on skype phone say same thing. also last i send 20 30 days they didnt even reply.

Merchant account: I am using express checkout on my website. Many of my customers purchased our service from and there and performed successful checkout. For all of them payments were crated and I have saved their paymentId, payerID and token. These payments were not executed for weeks (payments were not claimed). Now when I try to execute these payments, I get an error says 404- Invalid resource id. (It succeeded for two such cases where the payments were made only 2 days before)

{
"name":"INVALID_RESOURCE_ID",
"message":"The requested resource ID was not found",
"information_link":"https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/payments/#errors",
"debug_id":"878378979aac7",
"httpStatusCode":404
}

Can I anyhow claim these payments which were made 1-5 weeks before ?

Hello there, just wanted to ask, how can I be protected if I'm selling digital goods on ebay. Got scammed recently and without a tracking number or other proof there was nothing I could do. Thanks.

Hi @ViduzZz

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

I am sorry to hear you have has a bad experience with some eBay buyers.  In such cases, you need to be very vigilant as your Sales might be targeted by these perpetrators. Here are some tips on how to take precautions as a Seller in order to improve Prevention.

Please make sure you respond to such cases with all the details on what you provided, how you delivered and possibly keep screenshots of interactions with your buyers.

If possible you should delay supplying goods or services when dealing with new buyers or buyers with bad feedback on eBay. 

 

Thanks

And what about Unauthorized use of buyer account? Basically what happened is that I sold my digital code, got money on paypal, send buyer his code and then he wrote "I will be contacting Ebay & PayPal regarding your fraudulent transaction. You somehow charged my account without me purchasing something." Later got an email from PayPal about a dispute going on. Ofcourse I failed to provide shipping info since it's a digital code and the other person got refunded. My question is what can I do to make myself eligible for Seller Protection if I'm selling digital codes? Thank you.
