Oh yeah; I 'bought' an item on November 9, using an ACH from savings via PayPal; my item is in limbo until the ACH is completed, obviously. eBay/PayPal does suggest that the seller not send the item until the ACH is cleared. NOW...as another posting very clearly stated, PayPal has my money; they got it nearly instantly. By being permitted by the regulatory bodies to hold onto our money, they reap significant benefits in profit while we as individuals simply have to wait for them to accumulate it. And as another posting clearly states, this is the age of advanced technology. It should, logically, take less time than it did a few years ago instead of a week longer. I absolutely hate being manipulated for corporate advantage. I will not now or ever use PayPal as a business tool; after three years, I'm still enduring a locked account because someone hacked my card and I became a fraud victim. Many emails and bank affidavits later, the account is still locked. I think it's time I stopped using manipulative financial instruments. Can nothing be done about this openly predatory practice??
