    Sounds like their PayPal account got limited. Probably excessive disputes for tapping everyone's PayPal account without explicit permission. They are taking subscription type payments for success fees from Seller's PayPal accounts every time a buyer pays through PayPal and they don't have explicit permission for any of those debits by the Sellers. Agreeing to pay the success fee to Flippa when creating a listing and having Flippa just perform an unauthorized debit your PayPal account for those fees when a buyer pays are two totally different things.

    Shady business from a shady company; what more can you say. No other business operates this way, pulling funds from members PayPal accounts without active subscriptions in place.

    When I first heard of it happening I had the client call PayPal and PayPal told him he have must signed up for a subscription or given Flippa permission for the charge. He told them the hell he did and PayPal said then file a dispute. What do you want to bet many took the dispute advice?

    What they are doing are technically unauthorized PayPal charges, which should be illegal, as they debit the Seller's PayPal account one second after a buyer pays and without the Seller's explicit permission or any subscription service in place. Each of those transactions can be disputed as unauthorized charges to a member's PayPal account.

    Pay with CC is what I recommend. Or wait and see what support says. They might be able to get the limitation lifted quickly. Good luck

    Just got this following reply from flippa today-

    Thanks for contacting Flippa Customer Support. Unfortunately we cannot manually verify your PayPal account. Please try to link a bank account to your PayPal account, and try to make payment again. Alternatively, you might consider contacting PayPal Customer Support to ensure that there are no restrictions on your account / accounts in your locale.

    Please let us know if you need further information or assistance. Kind Regards, Flippa Customer Support.

    I did mentioned them i tried using other payment option on my paypal account but still didn't worked but by the reply of their customer support it looks like they never actually read my messages clearly & did a typical answer to my queries. Can anyone please tell me how can i make payment for the listing? I live in Bangladesh so its impossible for me to transfer money from here to abroad & also don't have any master/visa card neither can i issue one for this from here.

    Is your PayPal account verified? It sounds like it's not verified and Flippa has set a filter that if you don't have a verified PayPal account they won't accept payment. That is why they asked you to link a Bank account to your PayPal account.

    I would just pay with CC. I always had issues paying for my auctions with my paypal account. If that does not work, then contact Flippa support.
