figured id throw this here.. looks to be a fun new feature via PayPal. Sperry just posted about it. Causing some issues by holding funds.

In the future, ANY TIME you communicate with me through Paypal - they will “Hold Your Funds” from me.
See, you think you are just sending me a message, but you are really withholding your payment. And it becomes a "claim." Sucks right?
I may have to refund your purchase to clear the "claim" and I certainly don't want to do that!
It’s sort of the poster equivalent of declaring War. It’s probably not what you intended.
if you are looking at the payment details in PayPal, "Contact seller through PayPal" is located at the bottom of the transaction.

1) sale on 8/12 to INTL buyer (100% feedback)
2) unpaid item case opened on 8/15
3) "leave feedback" options are ( ) positive ( ) report buyer ( ) leave feedback later

i closed the case & will receive my fee credit, but why can't i leave negative feedback?

He either pays or after a set # of days, you get a final value fee back. Sellers have not been able to leave negative feedback for years.

I sold an expensive item, and buyer wants me to split the invoice into two. Any way to do this through ebay, or have to get the email and send directly from paypal?

splitting a payment voids all buyer/seller protection. $.02.

tell them to sign up for paypal credit or pay you in full. or dont buy fudge they cant afford.

she did pay in full. I think she just wanted to put it on two different credit cards and couldnt split the payment.

Well, the previous version of the eBay app (current as of this past weekend) worked very well, was intuitive to use, and rarely if ever crashed....


... so of course, they go and completely overhaul it :hanging: Jesus.
