    any paypal experts out there?

    Quick question relating to ebay / paypal - but not a scam this time, in fact a rarty these days, two honest people trading on "the bay"

    anyway - bought a mobile, only cheap, and paid by paypal.

    Now the seller was new, no feedback etc etc.

    My Paypal account is still showing my payment as unclaimed and so does ebay.

    The seller says she has changed her account to accept the payment but its still unclaimed, but today its changed a bit in that I now cannot cancel the payment but still showing as unclaimed. Yesterday there was a cancel button.

    Thing is, it got the phone in the post today!!!

    Now I have no intention of scamming this ebay newbie, just want to make sure she gets the money, but the paypal transaction is not complete.

    Anyone got any ideas what is happening?

    either leave it a few more days or phone paypal to verify that it is going to be sent to the seller

    Hiya,

    It sounds like the payment has been sent to his e-mail but he may have typed his paypal listed e-mail wrong so cannot accept the payment i.e john.smith@hotmail.co.uk is his registered paypal address but his ebay mistake when listing the item where the payment goes he typed john.smith@hotmail.com

    Hope this helps and is clear?

    you didn't pay by echeque did you? As if you did, it takes almost 2 weeks to clear....

    The seller may not of had an account to accept payments once she upgrades it takes about a week so it may be pending for that reason

    no normal credit card

    hope its not as shab said, but she did say that she had done something to get the money

    normally if you upgrade from personal to premier in order to accept credit card payments the transaction shows as completed.

    I will wait a while and see if she contacts me. don't want to pay twice but still want her to get her money as the deal was very good.

    i guess she is just naive as she has sent the phone to me before she has the money and by a completely untracable method - first class letter post.

    ah that may explian it

    before she says she can now accept payments I could see a cancel button

    now the cancel button has gone so maybe she has upgraded and its waiting completion.

    Once it goes through I will email her with some tips forv the future. Less scrupulous foljk would have taken the phone and run :-(
