    Ebay,- Grrrrr !!! I can call it many other names too !!!!

    I live in the small coastal community of Port Vincent, South Australia, Australia, AND I have also had major problems with Ebay not once, but many times, so much so that I have given up on them. Ebay, and to a lesser extent, Paypal are not as secure, and as safe to do business with as they claim to be, believe me. Many a time I have received fake paypal, bill for a non-existant item I," had sold, " on ebay, while for actual items that I had sold, ebay, through paypal then then billed me not once, but several times for the same item,- yes that's correct,- " Billed me," -didn't automatically send me payment, but actually billed me !!!
    yes, I have complained, & complained,- but no-one listens, simply send me hype about how good their," service is."
    Result I don't use ebay any more for anything !!!!!
    Now use two other Australian sites to promote my products.
    *** Etsy.com ??- Till I read your message, I had never, ever heard of ETSY.com
    Something new for me to have a look at, maybe its a good site to sell / promote my Aussie designed Toy Plans,- who knows there's ONLY one way to find out !!
    'ave a good evening everyone

      Here in the Uk I have no problem with e-bay or pay pal. I buy all my timber from a supplier I found on e-bay and i order every week, it is 3 times cheaper from him than buying locally. I sell at craft fairs and craft centres and I am kept very busy keeping up with it all. I was going to sell on ETSY.com when I first started but feel my stuff would get lost on there as there are hundreds selling similar things.

        I also had problems with ebay / paypal and closed my account. It took me many phone calls and emails and THREE YEARS to get it closed.

            What would happen if you just didn't trade there rather than close your account?

              I did just that, for three years, while trying to close the account, but was leery of my account being hacked so I wanted to get it closed. The issue I had was that the account was in my wife's name and I did not know it. They refused to help me close the account . They would not tell me that I did not have an account in my name. I, in desperation, tried her name and "Bingo!"

                I had problems with eBay charging twice for the same seller fee. They restricted my account and would not answer e-mails or phone calls, butthey did have a collection agency call me twice a day till I finally paid the overcharges just to get them to go away. I still can't get them to cancel the account because I opened it with an e-mail address that I don't use or remember what it is anymore. I had updated it to my new address in my profile but they won't close the account without the old one. Paypal is the same way so I eventually had to change my bank account so neither eBay or Paypal would have any info on my banking and nothing could be taken from my account.
                It's only a mistake if someone saw you do it.

                It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.
