    Paypal discussion!

    Hello Everyone.

    I'm posting this in hope someone maybe able to help me out with Paypal change back for merchants.

    The back ground.

    Ok I had purchase on my web site for just over $1100 for two items.
    The customer was using Paypal to pay. The $1100 was put into my Paypal account.

    Thinking all is ok i send off the items to the customer.

    A few days later after i'd sent the items to the customer. i get an email saying a charge back has be initiated on that transaction. The $1100 was removed from my account.

    I then had to send the details of the courier company i used to send the items. Including consignment number and signature of the person that received the good.

    Now paypal are saying the transaction was fraudulent and i've lost my money. Paypal told me to call the police and chase this up my self, it's now my responsibility.

    My question to everyone is, how can it be my responsibility. Isn't the whole idea about Paypal that we are protected from fraud.
    I still don't understand how someone could transfer $1100 into my Paypal account without going through the Paypal authorisation process.

    Has anyone out there had a similar problem, if so how did you go with getting back your money. Was there someone in Australia you called that was interested in helping you. Anything.

    My warning to everyone, is don't use Paypal. If something goes wrong they don't care.

    Someone told me once it's not the service you offer when selling something it's the service you supply when the shit hits the fan. That makes you a good company or person.
    Paypal don't fit this bill.

    Similar thing happened to me, but the thing is i bought something off ebay.Paid with paypal and recieved the goods. Found out the item was faulty and contacted paypal, made a dispute and they did nothing so i was stuck with it.

    After loads of emails and attempting to get this sorted nothing ever came of it. Like you said before, once you done the transaction there not bothered anymore. They have had your money - thats all they want.

    Someone bought a laptop off me on eBay for 1,700$. I needed to get rid of it to pay my rent... So I was cautious and waited 3 days to ship it to see if any chargebacks would happen.. everything seemed to be fine so i used extra fast shipping to make up for lost time..

    After shipped the next day I get an email saying that the paypal account used to pay me was stolen and that the transaction has been cancelled so now i am left without the item and the money.. Paypal basically told me I dont care sucks to be you...

    Paypal is not helpful in such manners, happened with a friend too. Thats why I recommend you to use Escrow.com service in future and try to accept Wire Transfers when the amount it big.

    The best thing to do for large $$ amount transactions is to ue a reputale escrow company.

    One lesson here is if you have funds in your account withdraw these funds as soon as possible to your bank account. You can never be sure of what will happen next. Anybody can claim that his or her Paypal account is stolen.
