My Money In Limbo

Writer Wishes To Remain Anonymous

As an ebay powerseller I have had several conflicts with PayPal and am so disheartened I am considering not using them anymore. I have sold items and the buyer for any reason can make a complaint. Normally it is the buyers mistake or error but all they have to mark is item significantly not as described, and PayPal immediately take the money from your account. They don’t even give you chance to fight your corner 1st, or check that the buyers allegations are correct.

This has happened to me 3 times in the last 6 months when it has not been my fault whatsoever. Two of these are still unresolved and my money is in limbo. On one of these occasions I had withdrawn my balance two days previously to my bank account and they reversed this to back debit my account. ThisĀ  very nearly left me in a financially embarassing situation. I hope someone comes up with a viable UK alternative to PayPal soon !!!
