Quick question - I sold an item and was late in sending it due to illness The item was paid for on Oct 27 and I shipped it yesterday, all the time notifying the buyer via email. Anyway, she filed a dispute for nonreceipt of item today thru paypal (it was an eBay transaction). So now over $1k of my $ is being held and I can't touch it. I provided all the tracking info to the buyer both by email and on the paypal dispute page. Thankfully I sent w/delivery confirmation and insurance. I asked the buyer to close the dispute as I have proof I sent it but she won't until she receives it. And of course I need that $$$! I called paypal and they assure me that as soon as I have proof the package was delivered that I can get my funds back but they said it can take up to 30 DAYS?!? How can that be when they can see the item was received? My fear is that the buyer might try to get out of having the funds released to me at all - maybe by saying the purse wasn't as stated in the auction or something??? I asked Paypal and they confirmed that she cannot do that - that only if the package wasn't *received* would the buyer have any recourse against me. Can anyone tell me if this is correct? I'm very concerned as it's a LOT of $ being held. Thank you!
