    Isn't this one of their new policies if you don't meet the requiremnts of what they call "a good seller"?

    They are idiots. Yes.

    Yeah, yet another of Ebay/Paypal's stupid changes. They can hold your money for 21 days if they feel like it, for whatever reason they choose. For example certain high risk transactions such as mobiles, games consoles etc.

    So, you're supposed to send it OR FACE A NEGATIVE FROM THE BUYER! (you can't even neg 'em back). If I were you and it is a lot of money I'd refund the money and explain the situation.

    Ebay sucks. Used to be fun in the olden days.

    I wouldnt send the item until you have the money in your account. too much fraud etc going on these days.

    Yep! The money only gets released if the buyer hasn't started a dispute/left negative feedback (within 21 days I think).
    Makes perfect sense, doesn't it? NOT!

    unbelieivable i've just had the same email from paypal
    .
    so now rather than just use the cash i have in paypal to pay for postage i have to use another account and then if the buyer feels like it he puts in a claim, gets the item, his cash and i've no goods left as well as being down even more cash from sending the thing.

    this is definetly the last time i use ebay.

    Confirmation here..

    This is a farce. Ity wouldnt be so bad if they didnt base your performance on detailed seller ratings. Does anyone ever bother leaving these? I know I dont!

    Now this and ebay is now the most studip things on earth. They have now become a joke. If all the above is true, what is to stop every1 going on a mad shopping spree over ebay buying loads of things, then recieving all the goods, starting disputes, gettting all your money back and then still have 100% feedback as sellers cant leave negs. WHAT A JOKE!!!!

    It's no different to before, there was nothing stopping them doing that before this paypal change.
    Do agree with the feedback part though, it's stupid that sellers can't leave negs.
