Re: Release my funds!

I've had the same problem, first 10 items I sold no problem, then every sale since payments are pending! I complied with sending recorded delivery, providing tracking numbers, had positive feedback from buyers, phoned PayPal still payments pending! When I phoned PayPal I was told I should consider myself lucky that the first 10 sales went through because they should have been " pending " too! Don't want to sell anything else if I am not going to get the payments! Does anyone know do PayPal eventually pay up or is this a scam? I am very wary of putting anything else for sale now?

Re: Release my funds!

They DO pay up because I contacted them three days after buyer recieved items and I recieved my money almost instantly. The tracking info has to show that the buyer recieved the goods (electronic signature). It has actually put me off from selling on Ebay but unfortunately  it's the best place for a guaranteed sale. It's a pain I know but you're not alone. I hope you get your money this week.

Re: Release my funds!

I have a pending transaction since August.  I called paypal September 30th, they apoligized and said my funds would be released in 3 to 4 days.  I called again a week later and was given the same speach.  After escalating to a manger I was able to obtain from her the fact that there is a glitch in there computer system that is not allowing funds to be release to affected accoub

nts.

 

She then stated it would be at least another week before I get my funds.  Whats really funny is that they get there fee's.  If you are late on a payment to paypal credit they report you to the credit buraue.

PayPal limit your account then use your funds for 6 months

Be under no illusion, your emails go straight to India and will be ignored, also PayPal do not read any of these posts on any subject. If they did they would see how many people have been affected by them creating the biggest monetary slush fund scam in the world. If they had any kind of moral compass at all, surely they would have tried to rectify the perception many of us have been forced to believe. They say they hold our money for half a year to prevent fraud, when it is them who commit the fraud. They say they will protect us, but it is PayPal that has stolen our funds and has put many of us out of business. They act with impunity and do as they choose with our money and any possible interest earned from it, because they make it impossible to trade on eBay without a PayPal account and we are not protected by UK law because PayPal are not regulated by it. This makes PayPal a very shady monopoly at best, and guilty of organised crime at worst. I urge anyone with a frozen or limited account to research the subject and discover how rife this issue is. Then you should write to to your MP and tweet about it as often as possible! More people need to know that Goliath is kicking the crap out of David!!
