So this is a new one for me- I won an item, and went to pay, and the seller did not invoice me through ebay. The only option I had was to request a total. I requested a total, and said as soon as they send me an invoice I will pay. The seller said in her auction she accepted paypal. A couple days later I get an email saying she is going to invoice me through paypal. So the invoice I get through paypal, says "goods". It doesn't give the ebay transaction. She said the reason she does this is because she does not accept credit cards through paypal. I've read some of these threads and have heard that its difficult to file a dispute through paypal if you don't pay through an ebay transaction. I told her I wouldn't pay, unless she sent me an invoice through ebay. Finally she did, but didn't include paypal as a payment option, so I could only send a check or money order. I told her she needed to add paypal. FINALLY, she did, and I paid her, its now been 2 weeks and I still haven't received the item. I'm beginning to wonder if it was a hyjacked account. She is no longer selling any items. Has anyone ever had a seller refuse to invoice through ebay? I just opened a dispute with paypal.
