we get one of these threads every few days, it is a new thing ebay did some time ago, on high risk items, like games consoles, phones etc,etc paypal hold the funds until basically buyer is happy, the buyer does not know the money is on hold
#3
Ive sold items worth £400 and have 99 feedback @ 100% positive, member since 98, kinda new to me....

The item is only worth £50.00
#4
It just happens randomly.. we have 2000 positives and it happened the other day for about £2.
banned#5

do not refund anything to the buyer, they will know your funds are on hold and you can get thrown off for doing this

To late, done now!

lets just hope it arrives, as if it doesnt and the buyer puts in a claim you are going to be spotted for what you have done

The last person on here who did this had thier paypal account suspended, for trying to avoid the hold. Just send them and you will get your money, you have less than 100fb which could be the reason.

A few months ago, I sold an item (can;t remember what it was - a game I think), on ebay, and around £30 was put on hold.

After receiving pos feedback, and 2 weeks down the line, I still hadn't received anything. This was a known fault with the ebay/paypal systems at the time - and others were moaning too. I emailed them several times and promised payment would be unheld ASAP. It never was.

I read on the ebay forums about other people in the same position, and the refund workaround. So I emailed the seller explaining what the 1p would be for, and did the deed.

Never heard anything from the seller, or paypal again. I suspect you may have just heard scare stories, as I was never suspended. The money was rightfully mine, and as you can see from my feedback here, I don't do ripping off.

I say do it and take the risk - I've never seen any PROOF that people have been suspended for it - especially when paypal is broken anyway.

Not only that when paypal go to release the hold they will see you used the 1p glitch, like I say the last person on here who did it had thier ebay/paypal suspended a few days later.
I would expect paypal to hold for most if not every transaction of yours now!


No they won't, and thats just scaremongering.

1) The unlock is an automated system
2) You have no reason, and are completely wrong, to think that paypal will now hold future transactions.

jaybizzle: To be honest, I hadn't realised you hadn't sent the item. As I explained above, I only used this method when I had already received pos feedback for the item. However, don't listen to the blatent scaremongering from posters who really should know better.

I have seen people suspended and yes a few months ago it was the thing to do, paypal have got wise to it but can't be bothered to close the loop hole. They are just suspending people who they catch doing it. Unfortunately although that money is rightfully yours it's not until you meet paypal's conditions. It's part of the t&c's. Yes it sucks but it's one of those things

Please feel free to link to proof of this, or stop trying to scaremonger. I agree there is a difference between doing it for the sake of it, and doing it like I did - to correct a genuine fault, but based on your other comments which I know for a fact are wrong, IM STRUGGLin to trust the rest

vibeone how can it be an automated system when different people get the funds after different amounts of time? the op hasnt even sent the item yet


so op have the funds now been released

It's all good people, im not scared, lol.

It's pretty ridiculous that they have done this anyway , 100% positive record and a member for over a decade.

Its based on when the buyer gives positive feedback. Do you really think there is a load of people sat around going "oh we'll give sassie the money today".

They can't even be bothered to have real people answering emails!

LIke I said - its a bit wrong for the op to have done this before sending - but thats upto him. i did it purely to fix a fault that they were incapable of fixing. However, the guys done it, and some of the blatant lies in this thread are not going to help him - whether they suspend him or not.

OP: Please report back asap as everyone seems certain you will be suspended, and I know full well you wont :)

There was someone on here just after Christmas who asked advice about the hold, his account was then suspended for suspicious activity after releasing 1p. If you want to go and find the thread feel free. I also know of others it has happened to on ebay forums. As I have mentioned on previous help topics, I help set up and run my friends ebay business, which is at power seller status, so I am fully aware how ebay/paypal work. If you don't trust what I say, not really my issue tbh:)


Before I reply let me ask you a question: Do you really want to get into a battle about who knows more about ebay/paypal?

The proof is in the pudding - the OP will not be suspended. Fact fans unite - its true. Won't happen. Shove that in your power seller account and smoke it.

Oh and at least you have put a stop to this - so will I. You are right, I don't trust you at all, and I know you are wrong, which will be proved.

Tinkerbell,are you referring to the person i advised to do the 1p refund a while ago,i don't know about other cases but with that person they did get suspended BUT there was other stuff going on with their ebay and paypal accounts,i was speaking to them in PM,it wasn't the 1p refund that caused it.

the process: payment is held until positive feedback is given by the buyer.

my case: feedback was left, but the hold was not removed due to a known problem at the time. paypal kept saying they'd sort it, but didnt. I resorted to the 1p thing as a last resort.

OP's case: feedback not left, but the bug used anyway. i dont deny its kinda wrong, i didnt read it all before my first reply.

Hope this clears it up

the op still aint gonna get his funds then, until feedback is left?

thanks deb8z - I suspected this might be the case, but to be honest certain people here are so fixed in their own incorrect views, it seemed pointless to complicate matters further.

I've seen no proof, and would be completely amazed if ANYTHING happens to the OP.

I'm out now. I'll pop back in a couple of weeks so tinkerbell28 can apologise

sassie! Grr.... read the thread. It does make sense honestly. the refund is a bug. if it sees a refund of any kind, it releases all the funds. regardless of feedback being given or not.

Where did I say he would get suspended, read my posts! I know of people who have been, all I said was that it was a possibility, but to expect the hold on most transactions from now, go on have a read!
You don't trust me, why on earth would I care.
Charming one you, no wonder you have to much time on your hands lately.

aww... so sweet. You talk rubbish, I just corrected all your mistakes - and thats what they are. It's a shame you get so upset... but I'll get over it.

I'll extend my 'bet' further

1) He won't get suspended
2) His 'on hold' status will not increase, or decrease. It will make no change whatsoever.

I am not upset:? Although you make think you opinions of me are important, they are not, as you are a random person on an internet forum, so drop it ok?

I didn't say they were more important, just more accurate :)
