I sold a Caliber 30 on Ebay to a Guy in WI.
He sent money by Pay Pal. I guess the is a way to send money that you have to accept by clicking on the accept tab. After 30 day if you dont accept it they send it back!
I didnt realize this and they returned the mony to the Guy I sold it to.
And now he doesnt answer his emails so I am S.O.L
anybody else have this happen????

The reason why you have to click "accept" is because you probably had a personal account and the other guy used a credit card in paypal to send you the money. If you did click accept, you would get the money but your account would be converted to a "Premier" account and from that point on, paypal will take about 3% from *all* the money you receive.

Sorry to hear what happened to you but paypal wants people to make sure you know that you get charged from that point on I guess before giving you the money.

I find it unreasonable that once you have a premier account, every dollar you receive gets charged 3% (not just credit card senders). Paypal should really reconsider that policy.

I made the exact same point a few days
ago and it didn't seem to make any impression on most of the people here.

In fact, a number of them said something
to the effect 'why are you worrying about
a lousy 3%', oblivious to the core issue.

Dude, do you mean to tell me that you sold something through Paypal and didn't check your account for 30 days?

You can downgrade your account at any time but their rules say once you do, you can never go back to premier. Premier's only tangible benefit is the ability for the payer to pay with a credit card and to accept unlimited amounts of money (we should all be so lucky!).

So I opened a second, basic account. Paypal says that is okay. The only thing is you'll need a second email address because it will reject the application if you use the same one as your premier account.

I agree that paypal should rethink that policy of charging the 3% on all. I can see the need for the fee when a credit card is involved, but not a blanket fee on all money. But hey . . . I guess that is how they can afford to have no fees on a basic account.

Keep in mind that the basic account is limited to accepting $500 a month from the date you opened the account.

Paypal is still the way to pay - In three years I've never had an incident.

I realy dont mind the 3% and I got the normal email from Pay Pal saying that the money had been sent and since I have been busy I did not go to Pay pal and check it out.
And yes I know I should have read the rules and am not blameing Pay Pal I am just letting everyone else know not to do what I did or didnt do!
Any way I am just pissed that this guy in WI wont return my emails He got a killer deal on the Heli!!!! and I even spent more on the shipping than he payed me for Just so he could get the heli by the weekend!
Anybody out there from WI ??

Is there a possible way of the post office holding the shipment instead of delivering to him?

You obviously didn't thoroughly read the email sent to you by PayPal. I guess there is little you can do now but you can try writting to PayPal and explain the situation. I had do problems with PayPal so far. Sometimes I need to accept payments too, I only notice it when people send me money in different currencies.

<<...oblivious to the core issue...>>

No kidding. Lot of that going around these days; and not just here.

I don't do much buying/selling from/to individuals, but when I do it is by good old postal money order/certified mail. I realize this offends the sensibilities of the instant gratification crowd... sin loi.

In Canada here.. our bank system has something called "Certipay" or
"Email Money Transfer" we can send an email and post a question to the receipient. then PM them the answer, Once the receipient received the notice by the bank email system, It will ask if you wanted to deposit the fund into your bank account right away.. cost only Canadian $1.50 flat rate.. great system. Not sure in States you have a system like that..

PAYPAL SCAM BEWARE!!!

Another way of scaming people is to pay through credit card to Paypal, receive the goods then call the credit card people & cancel payment. Paypal then deducts your account the amount, some lowlife did that to me, and guess what ??...There's no recourse!!

So I opened a second, basic account. Paypal says that is okay. The only thing is you'll need a second email address because it will reject the application if you use the same one as your premier account.

FYI: One thing to remember if you open up multiple accounts is that you won't be able to use the same checking account #'s to verify both. If you thus only have one checking account, then one of your accounts will be stuck with a low sending limit until you open up a new checking account to verify the paypal.
