  • THIS IS ANOTHER REASON WHY I HATE EBAY
  • OK, all you bankers/financial wizards out there explain something to me. EBAY owns and almost requires you use Pay Pal when making a purchase. Fine. I win an auction, go to PAY NOW an finalize the transaction. The money is immediately withdrawn from my bank account and sent to the sellers account. Fine. In today's electronic world, that all takes about 5 seconds. I get an email confirming my purchase. I also get a bank email notice saying the money was withdrawn. Fine. It's fast, easy, and painless. Now, when a deal goes sour and the seller cancels the purchase, and has to refund my money, why in hell does it (my money) have to go into my Pay Pal account and then I have to go into it and actually move it back to my bank account??? It will then say that it will take 3 or 4 days before it gets back to my bank. WTF??? Why??? It was taken out lickity-split so why can't it be put back/refunded just as fast? I don't get it. This is another reason I hate ebay so much. Unfortunately, it is about the biggest place to go to for original used Ford Tractor parts and other things. I guess they think they got you by the shorthairs so like to make you squirm.

  • I do not have a paypal account I use one of those credit cards that has a $1,000 limit. Refunds really to take 3 to 4 days, they are called an ACS transaction like when you write a paper check. Use a credit card and refunds and such happen much faster.

  • What's the difference? It shouldn't matter. It's all done electronically today like I said. You make a Pay Pal payment or a Credit Card payment, the transactions are done NOW. You are immediately debited on your bank account. It should be the same reversing the process; a refund should go right back to my bank, right NOW, not back to Pay Pal. I don't give a rats a$$ who owns PP now. Pure BS. It's like a paper check. It used to be it was 5 business days for it to clear. Same is true with those. Once it gets processed into their system, they know immediately if it is a good check or a bad check. Wonderful age of technology we live in isn't it?

  • What is done by financial institutions (and just about everything else) is controlled by federal regulations.

    Consult your senator and congressperson.

    Good luck.

  • I stopped using eBay over ten years ago.

    Pay Pal is only one of the reasons.

    Never again.

  • Purchases are set up to be done instantly, so your item can be shipped the same day. Move an amount of money from your bank to paypal and it will take a few days. Manual transactions, like refunds, are handled manually. If purchases were, you would really gripe when it took days to ship while waiting for paypal to get the money from your bank. I always move an amount to paypal before making a purchase. That way, money is in my paypal account before I make the purchase.

    Wrong again. Paypal was spun off of Ebay over 3 years ago. It's an entirely separate, independent, publicly traded company, and has been for a while.

  • You noticed that, eh?
    I usually look at the sellers history if multiple sellers available. If it stinks....
    I do not link the Ebay to Paypal, I do not initiate instant payment from PayPal.
