Is it possible to get your money from them quickly? I've heard that it takes up to a month. My Dad uses eBay to buy and we haven't sold there yet.
Also, can you bid on your own item if it's going too cheaply on eBay? Somebody told me it's allowed but I don't know for sure.
Paypal is a love/hate relationship with me. Aside from their second amendment issues, it is a very convenient method for sending and receiving money. I think their commission, at 3.5% is extortion. But they are part of fleabay, which is also extortion. Ebay will charge you to list an item, then charge you a final value fee, then charge you to be paid for the item through Paypal, it's triple taxation. There is also no protection from a seller's standpoint with Paypal. Any complaint from a buyer and they debit your account for the money until the dispute is resolved. So I hate em for that reason.
You are kidding right? Paypal routinely freezes sellers' accounts for one reason or the other, with the account holder having no real recourse other than hoping all goes well and they eventually get their money back.
