Complaint / review text:
I have been selling on eBay for 3 or 4 months now. Everything was going smooth. I have a total of 34 feedback now, all 100%. The buyers have been making payments through PayPal. I print shipping labels through eBay. I automatically use the funds that the buyers pay me with to cover for the shipping cost. Just recently PayPal, out of nowhere, put a hold on the funds that were paid to me by the buyers. Recently, I sold some items on eBay. As a good seller, once I see the payment is received on eBay, I print out my shipping label asap, so I can get the item shipped out as soon as possible.
But then a couple of days later, I saw that my bank account has 4 overdraft fees.instead of Paypal letting me use those funds from my buyer to pay for shipping charges, it charges my checking account which has no money in there. It caused me to have an overdraft fee of $136.00! PayPal even admitted that it is their fault, but won't do anything about it. They said that because I am a new seller, they are putting a hold on my account. If they would put a hold on my account in the beginning for all the funds I have received, which is about $800, I would have known to have money ready in my checking account to cover for shipping. I am furious with how they are doing business.
