eBay owns Paypal so it's the same wall you are beating your head against.

I just sold an item and the buyer has gone MIA when it comes time to pay. You wait three days, then send an invoice, wait some more.

Then file a complaint. Wait 7 days, blah blah blah.

Waste of life.

I just went thru a no pay claim after 10 days the buyer sent an echeck but it did not clear. I waited 4 more days till pp deposited it again, nothing. I than closed the case to get a fee refund. 3 days latter the checks clears and pp puts it in my account, but I waited till it got to my bank account before I shipped it. It was only a fishing reel but I wanted to be sure of my money. It took me longer to ship than normal, but he can wait like I did. I thought it was odd that pp put the money in my account after I closed the case.
