    Hi this is my first post and i would like a little help. I am a seller on Ebay not a big seller just small things from time to time. I recently finished working and ran into some money problems and had to sell a few items to pay for my rent. This is where i made the mistake i sold a Phone for £380 but didn't send it by recorded mail, just normal post. The buyer is now saying they did not receive the item and my paypal account has been put in minus i also withdrew the money from the buyer as soon as it was put in. my problem is i did send the item and cannot afford to pay, pay pal because of my financial situation. What would happen if i left my account in minus for a few months till i find a new job and can afford to pay them and will paypal be understanding about my situation?

    If you don't have tracking number - sorry, but you lose...
    About account with negative balance - Paypal will simply close it after while and will ban all your info (as name, card number, etc...)

    Usually, Ebay and paypal do not listin to these type of quiries, but it never hurts to try. Email then first with your problem in detail and than call them with the ticket number/ID to get things resolved faster.

    Call them, but once you say it was not recorded delivery they will have you.

    I sold a pair of graphics cards - same issue occurred.

    If your paypal is in negative balance, they will just take out the money from your credit card or bank without your consent.

    Ok thanks for the reply's, if i just canceled my direct debit with paypal and left it till i could pay. how long would it be till they passed it on to debt collectors and once it was the debt collectors problem how long do you have to pay them, and go about paying them. they wouldn't just show up barging there way into my house would they? i live in the uk.

    Nobody will be barging into your house at all :)
    You can leave the account with a negative balance for a few months before they will pass it on to a collection agency.
    Really try to fight this issue and win it although since you do not have a tracking number they have the upper hand in this dispute.

    The hard lesson you just learned is to always and I mean always pay for tracking.
