    Paypal issues and threatening refunds regarding concert tickets, please advise?

    My friend has sold some concert tickets on Ebay and since it's a preorder he has received confirmation for the tickets but he decided to sell them on.
    Paypal has now requested tracking numbers, otherwise they will issue refunds.

    He informed them that the tickets haven't been delivered to anyone attending the event yet but he can provide any info as soon as he receives the tickets but Paypal have said that they'll issue refunds if they don't receive the tracking number within a certain date.

    Where does he stand on this?

    Obviously nowhere, they want the tracking numbers and they want them by then. It don't look for your pal.

    reading between the lines, he had to inform paypal because of the names needing to be on the tickets?

    you really shouldnt put anything up for sale until you have it in your possession, as thats what happens on here also.

    refund the paypal, relist and only accept cheque or bank transfer... List nearer the time of the concert and put it down to experience

    Will the tickets come to your mate or the winning bidder?

    shouldnt be selling stuff you dont have in your possesion in the first place

    should wait for the tickets to be delivered before selling them or at least define it in the description with a warning that they wont be sent until theyve been received........

    seen people were selling oasis tickets last year when announced but tickets aint even been sent out yet...... now its too late for people to make a claim if they are not delivered

    ring the ticket comapny and cancel if you cant make it

    hate scalpers with a vengenace,scourge of the earth

    I advised him to sell it when the time nears incase any issues arise but he chose to list them now, as he had to pay for the tickets upfront but now knows he won't be able to make the event due to other commitments.

    I told him to contact the buyers and sort something out with them, as they have all his details etc, so he's not going to run away but I agree that Paypal won't cover them once the 45 days has elapsed, so it does make sense really.

    Will he be able to claim back the Ebay fees if the transactions don't go ahead?

    Thanks for the advice guys and girls. :thumbsup:

    Personally I am going to stop accepting paypal, I have had so many bad experiences and the fees are ridiculous. !!!:w00t:

    this is all over the michael jackson forum too-seems paypal are actually doing the right thing for once.

    1. nobody should sell something they dont actually have in their hands.


    oh,and 2. people who sell tickets above face value are the scum of the earth and its high time the government outlawed the practice!

    Touts never prosper in the long run. :-D

    Nothing to do with anything,but how come a lot of your threads are about a "friend":whistling:

    Cause hes a really friendly man.

    he can claim ebay fees after he refunds them through paypal

    once its been refunded it will flag in ebay as not paid so you open a mutual agreement to cancedl the transactiuon

    provided he has kept the buyer happy im sure they will have no problem in replying and closing the case resulting in any fees being credited

    Technically you may have to offer it, but I have seen hundreds of listings that state NO PAYPAL due to the fees etc etc.

    I hate Paypal too and they cost me £1000's when they held back funds because I made a lot of money in a short space of time, even though I proved the tracking numbers and had 100% positive feedback.

    Unfortunately, this went on for quite a while and the market became oversaturated by the time they released the funds, so I couldn't reinvest it. :x

    I don't agree scalping, even though I have been tempted at times and haven't gone ahead with it but remember that there are a lot of people that buy take advantage of the deals on HUKD for resale...that's basically the same thing.

No he won't be able to claim the fees back. He is better refunding now as well rather than paypal forcing it. It looks better on him.If you sell on ebay you can't:thumbsup:



    Very true, you stand to lose a lot of money if Paypal is excluded in auctions and with profit margins being tight, you stand to only break even after fees have come into the equation.

    its not abuse of the fvf as its technically not been sold and paid for.........

    get your money back there is no reason why you shouldnt providing you refund the buyer

    sounds like an honest mistake and ebay will get there cut when its relisted

    ive read it and it relates to completed transactions

    this my friend has not been completed, goods have not changed hands and refund will be issued

    i am well aware of how ebay works and have been advised before by ebay australia to do what i have explained

    no goods have been exchanged and techincally the whole transaction has been cancelled which in turn means any fees should be canceeled also but unfortuantely it is not automatic like it is with paypal who refund your fees when a refund is issued

    Tinkerbell is right...........transaction was completed, seller then broke the terms of sale and defaulted. FVF abuse if they try to get them refunded.

    I won't agrue with you it's there in black and white this WAS a completed … I won't agrue with you it's there in black and white this WAS a completed transaction. The buyer want's a refund due to the seller not sending the goods. Not grounds for a fee refund of FVF, so I see your point, ebay do not see it that way.The seller would be guilty of FVF abuse, end of.



    that rule stands for people who have sold an item and completed a transaction and in turn have attempted to recoup fees saying the transaction hasnt been completed.

    same as paypal refunding their fees when you refund.....

    you are misconstruing the rules im afraid.......the transaction could not be completed as the seller does not have the tickets in hi/sher posssesion no goods have been sent so nothing has been sold so no fees are to be paid

    If you've sold an item but can't go through with the sale, you can cancel the transaction in our Resolution Centre and you may receive a credit on your Final Value Fee.

    Possible reasons for cancelling the transaction are that the item is no longer available or in good condition, you sold it to someone else, or there's some other reason you can't complete the sale.

    Note: When you cancel a transaction, there’s no action against the buyer. If your buyer didn't pay you, see What to do when your buyer doesn't pay (unpaid item process).

    still in doubt....they will confirm it here

    The transaction hasn't been cancelled though.............it has been defaulted and a claim registered through Paypal for non-receipt of goods.

    Totally different.

    why is it been taken out of their hands?

    the seller is just unsure.....they aint nmo scammer just mnade mistake

    seller can easily refund the funds and incidenally they will get their paypal fees back because the transcation has not been completed

    on your thinking paypal should still keep their cut as well as ebay

    defintion of transaction just for you

    Transaction


    An agreement between a buyer and a seller for the exchange of goods or services for payment.

    Investopedia Says:
    The parties participating in a transaction have an obligation to perform their part. For example, for two parties involved in a futures contract, the seller is obligated to sell and deliver the underlying asset and the buyer is contractually obligated to pay the agreed upon price and accept the delivery.

    Paypal never keep their cut in a refund.........eBay will still charge fees as the seller failed to fulfill the transaction which was their fault for not ensuring they could comply with the rules on selling tickets.
