I have been a valued user of eBay and PayPal for over a decade. Today I was treated like a common criminal and my integrity was wrongfully questioned by eBay and PayPal.
I sell on eBay every now and then. I have never failed to keep my word with anything I have listed for sale on eBay.
I have always listed my items with complete honesty. I have always shipped the items sold within a few days of the sale in extra packing for safety and security of the item sold.
Today, eBay and PayPal conspired to treat me as if I was not a excellent and valued customer.
I listed and sold an item on eBay and PayPal put my money on hold for up to 21 days without just cause. PayPal would not allow me to access my money so that I could ship the item sold to the buyer today. PayPal has now caused, without reason, the delay of the shipment until after Christmas.
I have never given eBay or PayPal authority, knowingly, to withhold my money for any length of time.
PayPal and eBay, without just reason or authority, has decided to with hold my money, for up to 21 days, because I am a periodic user of eBay and not a professional seller. This is totally wrong and is the same as stealing because they hold funds up to 21 days, collecting interest on said funds, and not forwarding the interest collected to the rightful person who owns the money in the first place.
My advice is not to ever use eBay or PayPal for anything.
