I have 100% perfect eBay feedback, and I work very hard to provide stellar customer service to all of my eBay buyers.
I recently lost my job, so I have been auctioning off my personal belongings to pay my mortgage and my car payment. I posted about 40 items on eBay with an extimated value of $4000. After 20 or so auctions ended, while I was waiting for about $2000 worth of PayPal payments, I receive an email from PayPal saying effective IMMEDIATELY, there would be a 21 day hold on all my payments!! They gave me no advance notice about this policy, and they implemented this policy while I had active auctions listed! If I would have known about this policy, I certainly would have found another venue to sell my belongings. I needed this money ASAP to pay my mortgage!!
I was a model eBay citizen and I followed PayPal’s rules to the letter of the law. I shipped within 24 hours of payment and I always posted tracking information. Now they are holding on to the money I DESPARATELY need to pay my bills, and they’re using MY MONEY to make interest for their unethical, greedy corporation. This is technically ILLEGAL, and they continually circumvent the financial legal system by paying millions of dollars to soulless corporate lawyers. I am so sick of PayPal’s unethical business tactics. They wreak of raw sewage, and they have nearly destroyed my finances and my LIFE. These people have no soul.
