I won a MJ bag on eBay last night. The seller's payment terms were Paypal, MO or Cashiers Check. I sent an email to the Seller and let her know that I would be sending a MO by overnight UPS or FedEx so that she's have it the following morning. She replied that it would have to be either a Bank or Postal MO if I didn't want to wait for shipping. If I sent any other kind of MO, there would be a 5-7 day hold. I've been paying for my winning auctions for years with MOs purchased at my local Currency Exchange. MOs purchased there can be traced at any Currency Exchange in the US. I've never had a problem in the past or with any other seller - they all shipped my item imemdiately. So I talked to my sister, who has a Paypal a/c & who just recd payment on my behalf for something that I sold (I don't have a Paypal a/c). She said rather than have the $$ transferred from paypal into her bank a/c, why don't I just let her pay for the auction for me. I told her that would be great. So I emailed the Seller & told her that the payment would go thru Paypal thru my sister's a/c. She then replies that, that would be great but that she would have to send it to my sister. Unfortunately, my sister lives in an unsecured building & isn't available to sign for packages - she even has a lot of her purchases sent to me for this very reason & it's never been an issue (about 90% of her purchases/packages are from eBay!). So now we're back to square one - I can't get to the PO until Thursday, which means I can't send the payment until Thurs night or Fri morning, which means she won't have it until Sat or Monday and then I'll have to wait for her to send the bag, putting it's delivery at mid-week sometime. If I sent the $$ thru Paypal, it would have been done tonight and I could have had my bag by the end of the week. Am I wrong to be frustrated? I've never had an issue like this before - I always pay for my auctions w/MOs purchased from the same currency exchange & I always send them overnight for next day delivery. Some sellers are so appreciative, they upgrade my shipping at no addtl charge! But I've never had a seller wait [more than 1 day] to ship my item becuz of where I bought my MO. Bank MOs are actually much less secure that a Currency Xchange one, so I don't understand the problem - and I especially don't understand the problem with my sister using her Paypal a/c to pay for my winning item!!! Since my address is listed on her a/c (becuz she's had various things sent to me and/or my daughter) why should it matter!!! As a seller, wouldn't you want to get your money as quickly & safely as possible? If she's so concerned about the MO being good, why wouldn't she welcome the paypal payment??? I don't understand it really makes me mad!! I just want my bag - I was so excited, even opting to pay for overnight shipping!! Now I probably won't have it til next week sometime. ARGH!!
