We don't take Paypal from International buyers because we have no Paypal protection without a US confirmed address. We have to refund at least 3 payments per week when it could not be more clearly stated in the auction. We even have a link to our website explaining why we can't accept it and still they all act surprised.
On the brighter side, if you do get a negative, you can follow-up with the explanation that the buyer did not follow the TOS and most eBayers know that scenario, so it shouldn't hurt you.
And let's remember that, if all the honest sellers leave eBay, it will be a dangerous place for collectors
I don't use pay-pal nor credit cards and some sellers will ONLY take those two.
I only messed up once and bid on an item that said pay-pal only but that guy said I could back out but before I could somebody else out bid me.
As for you getting NEG's feed-back there is no reason they should give it to you because you said in you item that you can NOT take credit cards..if anybody sould get the NEG it would be them.
Oh well....I need to go to bed,
Unfortunately, Speedy, the reality of it is that oftentimes the buyers who don't want to take the time read the TOS also tend to be a little on the ....unreasonable side.
We sell our extra Colorado Rockies tickets on eBay every summer, and clearly state "We take PayPal, but not credit cards through PayPal." Not only do buyers fail to read the notice, but we had one guy who tried to pay by credit card two consecutive summers.
Having been a teacher, I realize that many people don't read directions. Just something you have to live with.
With that said, I personally agree with the fact that the buyer should have read all the terms and if they had a problem with them, just reported your listing as a violation so it could get removed instead of bidding on it and insisting to pay with a form of payment you do not wish to accept.
Your total comes to $5.35
My PayPal address is ******************
Please remember I am not able to take credit cards. I can only take payment from existing funds in your PayPal account or a bank transfer. Thanks for bidding and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
On another note, the previous bidder contacted me and will send a money order. I'm glad that worked out.
As for the PayPal logos, they just appear in my listing and I do not know how to prevent them from showing up.
There are no fees for the buyer, but the seller who accepts paypal will have to pay a % fee if the buyer uses a credit card. If the buyer uses paypal credits or a direct transfer from a bank account, there is no fee to the seller, which is source of this thread.
Log on to PAYPAL,
click on the AUCTION TOOLS tab,
click on "Offer PayPal on All Your Listings (Automatic Logo Insertion)",
highlight your auction ID,
then click REMOVE logo insertion.
That should do it.
Log on to Ebay
Click "EBAY PREFERENCES under "MY ACCOUNT"
Click CHANGE under PAYMENT PREFERENCES below "SELLER PREFERENCES",
Uncheck all the PAYPAL boxes
Hope this works! CDB
I do have an eBay question regarding payments. Can I have seperate payment instructions for non-us bidders?
Separate names with a comma.
