So I bought an item on eBay yesterday. I paid using Paypal. The money has already been deducted from my account. I got an email saying that the item will be shipped with UPS and a label was printed using Paypal's shipping system. Then this evening I get an email from eBay and Paypal saying that the listing was removed from eBay. Now it is not showing up in my Won list in eBay. What in the world does this mean? How can a listing get removed after the item has been bought? I have emailed the seller and am awaiting response. I am sick at my stomach! What is going on?

This can be caused by a number of things... is the seller showing as "no longer registered"? I think you can put your PayPal payment on "hold" until you hear back from the seller that everything is ok...

Aw greyhoundgal I'm sorry this happened to you! I don't really know much about Ebay but have you tried posting in the ebay forum? The ladies over there may be able to help you out. I hope it all works out for you!!!

I am currently on hold with eBay. Pray that everything is ok. I am sick at my stomach. This was an expensive bag. I know that I am protected with Paypal, but I fear the hassle of getting my money back will make me want to pull my hair out.
Thanks ladies for such a quick reply. I love you girls!

It could be for a number of reasons. Hard to tell and eBay won't tell you either. But if you have tracking already I wouldn't worry just yet.

I just got off of the phone with eBay...32 minutes on hold...and they said that the seller is temporarily unregistered. They couldn't (or wouldn't) tell me why but said that if I don't get the bag I will get a refund. We shall see. The buyer was a power seller and had a lot of good feedback and only 2 negative ones that sounded like they were from people that just won't be happy with anything (upset about the price they paid). They have been selling on eBay for over a year and have sold hundreds of items most of which were Coach bags so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

It happened to me once. After I paid and received a tracking, the listing I won got pulled. It turned out, it violated trademark infringement. A couple days later, I received the shoes and it was a great experience. If the seller is still registered, this could be a reason.

ETA: Just saw your post. I hope that you do receive your bag or get your money back without hassel. Do keep us posted.

It could be trademark violation or maybe she didnt pay her Ebay fees. That is highly possible too. Keep us posted on this. I hope it shows up for you.
