They did it to me. Sold patio chairs, local pick up only. The guy got them, and they held my money!! I called and all they kept telling me was enter your tracking number. Hello **bleep**!!! It was a pick up!!!! Finally after talking to 3 different people and explaining it every time, I demanded a supervisor and got it reversed. What a pain in the butt this company is!!!

Re: Paypal funds hold, big problem!

Locate your state Money Transmittor Regulator....if you go to the Ebay site, search the forums for Reversing the 21 Hold Delay...there is a list by State.  My understanding is this may indeed be illegal by your state laws.  

 

Bottom line for me, paypal and ebay have lost me as a customer.  Hope many follow suit.  This is ridiculous that they hold my money, i'm out shipping costs and no longer have the product.  I have no recourse.

Searched the forums for a couple of hours, can't find "Reversing the 21 Hold Delay" on any of the threads. The eBay forums are as full of fed up sellers as are the PayPal. If I can find a site that's not Craigslist that I can auction on, I'll take it in a minute. I'm mostly a buyer but I'm horrified by the unethical but legal business practices of both eBay and PayPal.

Okay Boys and Girls,

 

Now we're getting somewhere.  This link http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/02/24/ebays-got-a-paypal-problem/ will take you to the February 2012 article in Fortune Magazine about the problems that we're all dealing with right now. I think that we're getting people's attention.  KEEP UP THE PRESSURE!!!!

Re: Paypal funds hold, big problem!

So my Paypal transfer to my bank finally goes through after 3 days.  I then try to close my Paypal account,  but because I owe Ebay my seller's fees, they won't let me close my account.

 

Thought everyone would appreciate this---I owe Ebay  $6.66.   Get it?  666
