Ensure you get your free Paypal Voucher for eBay purchases!

27
Found 7th May 2008
Wasn't sure where to put this but thought it was more info on how ur lightly to get a voucher and not how to get a voucher for sure.

But anyway they are giving away vouchers and you only get the chance if you have the email addresses of Paypal and eBay match up and there is a link on how to ensure that works (if it doesnt already match)


I know most people will have it already linked but will help those who dont, also could help if you have 2 eBay accounts though i dont know if they will send 2 voucher but they might do...
Hope it helps someone.

had this problem the other day. managed to find the solution myself, but this is a good post. should be stickied in the voucher section.

i would put this in misc, more info than a deal, what does everyone think?

mine already match up so does that mean ill receive a voucher?

It was in there generic use paypal stay protected email at the side i dont think they sent them out yet:

Dont miss out

eBay is giving away millions of pounds in vouchers to buyers like you. Make sure you don't miss out. Link your eBay account with your PayPal account.



and a link to where this link goes too

Total ********. The wife got a voucher and her PP and ebay emails were different. Mine match and i've never had one.

My email matches already, and despite the fact I just paid over 200 smakeroonies in ebay fees this week ive not had any vouchers, or ever had any :?

My ebay and paypal email addresses have matched for years. I got my first ever voucher from them a week or so ago.

True but any event can in turn affect any other event so i am hoping the event that my address's match will affect the event of getting the voucher and not affect the event of me being run over tomorrow

All that says is what it says on the voucher, basicallly....

If your paypal and ebay emails don't match you can't cash it in.

It's got nothing whatsoever to do with actually increasing your chances of getting one. In actual fact you're probably MORE likely to get one by not linking your account as that's what they are trying to make you do ;-)

The addresses dont have to match to receive the voucher in the first place but to use it you have to match them up so it recognises its you.

i got a £7.50 paypal voucher with no minimum spend on the 28th april.

used it yesterday fine.

i think you need both your paypal and ebay email addresses to be the same. then they will notify you of the paypal voucher code.

hope that helps..

From the link given by sale, it looks more like the reason for linking accounts is to be able to use a voucher that you may receive, rather than to increase chances of getting one:

eBay is giving away millions of pounds in vouchers this year. Because … eBay is giving away millions of pounds in vouchers this year. Because these vouchers are powered by PayPal, they’ll only work properly if you add your eBay email address to your PayPal account. This lets PayPal recognise your eBay details and ensures that your voucher will work smoothly.



[edit] doh beaten to it

Moved to misc forum...

my emails dont match,ive been with ebay for years and ive just got my first £5 off anything voucher and it worked when i used it

I've never had any of these vouchers, I think I remember maybe a discount voucher for postage or something.
But I read on this thread a mention of ebay extra, I have been lucky enough to be invited and got to level 4 so I have a choice of £100 to spend on ebay or a casio exilim 7.2 m pix camera not too bad ehh?
Not sure which to go for as I'm not after anything of high value so I'd have to buy something then sell it on ebay again so I'd lose some of the value in fees and the casio is on ebay for 80-90 quid, it looks nice though, just a pity I don't really need one and I need money.

When I was trying to claim the voucher at first it wouldn't let me do it on ebay extra so I emailed ebay about it and then they sent me another £5 sweetener to use by 15th may for the trouble and delay, I'm really chuffed.

so how do you get this? do you get an email or something cause i havent got anything and my ebay and paypal email address is the same.

I tried to sign up to that Extra promotion (the wife had an message about it, I didn't) and it wouldn't let me. Think that was a bit out of order considering the amount I was spending on ebay back then :x

Yeah, I was spending alot too, the funny thing is, I didn't actually physically spend the £1000 or so needed to reach level4 as the transaction fell through but it still registered on ebay as me having spent that amount.
You had to be invited into it by ebay, I heard on a forum they were handpicking, Shengis you should have purchased all the stuff on your wifes acc then you would have got or for her the benefits.

I don't know about how you get these vouchers I think you just have to be lucky but as for the ebay extras reward scheme, it's ended now it only lasted a month or 2 so doesn't give you alot of time to do your spending to increase your reward and it ended in march i think. They said they'd prob do it again.
