I recently sold an authentic Balenciaga on eBay. The only form of payment I will accept is Paypal, and have only had good experiences (both as a buyer and as a seller) using Paypal. I told my buyer I would ship as soon as I received her payment. Well, whether she intended to or not, her Paypal payment to me went through as an e-check. Paypal advises sellers not to ship in those cases until the e-check clears, so I told my buyer that, although I felt bad about it, I would have to wait until her e-check cleared, and then I would ship immediately. Feeling very frustrated with having to wait, she was able to contact Paypal the next day to cancel the initial e-check payment. She also did an instant transfer of the purchase price through Paypal. Initially this second payment showed up as "cleared" in my Paypal account. I emailed her that all was okay and that I would be shipping the following day. However, within just a few moments of me emailing her to tell her that, I received an email from Paypal informing me that the second payment was on "hold." I responsed to the email I received from Paypal immediately and described the situation as clearly as I could, but I haven't heard anything back from them yet. (I even emailed them yesterday to inquire about the situation again, but no response yet. I guess they don't work on weekends!) Understandably, my buyer is now feeling very frustrated and emailed me that she never would have purchased the bag from me in the first place if she knew there would be such problems. I REALLY don't want to lose this sale, and I understand her frustration, as she was thinking she would have the bag in her hands within a few days. My trouble is, I don't know what Paypal is going to do, and I don't know when, and I don't feel comfortable shipping out a bag that sold for over $900 when I have no funds for it. While this is under investigation, I have no funds in my account from her. Advice? THANKS!!!
