I had someone contact me about buying something without Paypal. Their writing was broken English but they wrote something like texting me on my phone. I told them I was sorry, that I only accept Paypal. I got a few more messages begging and saying they wanted to text me & I and didn't respond. After yet another message I put the buyer on my blocked bidder list. Something didn't feel right. Well, now even after being on my blocked bidder list they can still message me. They have not bought anything so I'm not sure how they can still message me since I have it checked to block those on my BBL. Any idea why?
I recently purchased an item on Ebay paying with PAYPAL.Shortly after purchase was paid, vendor contacted me DIRECTLY saying he would ship item as soon as I sent Credit Card info to pay for it. I informed him payment had already been made through PP. (VIOLATION: Contacting buyers directly and not through Ebay messaging). I have not heard ANYTHING back from him.
Shortly after his email, I checked my PP and my Credit Card for this transaction: Both had been billed. I returned to Ebay to check on my purchase to find 'the item was no longer available' and that the Seller was no longer listed with EBAY. It has been a week and neither my Credit Card nor PayPal has been refunded.
I have spent HOURS trying to contact EBAY directly, with no success due to needing the above information to jump through their many hoops. I still can't reach them. I'm not a happy camper at the moment! lol
Any suggestions please?
Hello, I have a question. I am new to selling on ebay, although I have purchased many things without any trouble. I listed an item today and accepted an offer for purchase. The buyer is listed as being new to ebay. I just received an email from ebay that the buyer requested my contact information. I had listed that payment would be accepted via paypal only. I have never experienced this before in any of my ebay transactions. Shouldl he need my contact information in order to pay for the item via paypal? This has left me a little uneasy, but as I said, I'm new to selling. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
