Ebay: selling question :::: SOLVED

Postby Black » Sun Sep 02, 2012 5:32 pm

Ok I've not sold anything on ebay for a while but have recently done so. It is a paypal transaction & the question is:

When you sell an item, do you have to click on a link (and log into your payapl account) in an email you get, to confirm the payment?
Why would you need to confirm a payment????
The email has the buyers details, address etc. in it but has been sent to an enail address no longer linked with either paypal or ebay!!

This seems madness to me as it opens you up to scammers!!!!!

Thanks in advance.

Ok I've solved this issue.

Its because ebay automatically fills the paypal contact email address from the last used one and there is no option in your account to change this. You can only change it when you list your next item. What a load of xxxxxxxx

So if you have changed your paypal email addresses you have to confirm payment from a non registered email address.

Just started buying/selling on ebay as everyone says it's great. I'm mentally exhausted!

Its a bit of a merry go round if you are selling a few things. You need to be very organised and on the ball. If anything goes wrong, lord help you!!
