    So, everything has been going great but over the last 5 days talk about falling house of cards...

    here is what my main ebay account looks like.
    [​IMG]

    This is a "real" account. I use the attached paypal for my B&M business I have so it has my merchant account too. The one I use to pay my employees for the work they do. I process a withdrawal pretty much ever day, but have a rolling reserve the last few months due to an increase in business, so this really hurts. Then get a limited email. Do all the stuff, and get the 6 month limitation even after appeal, no dice.
    [​IMG]

    Then I was like, damn -- at least I have a huge payout coming on Saturday from my main Amazon account. Whoops, never mind. selling privileges permanently suspended.

    Then because i got greedy trying to save about $600 on a $5,000 order I cave in and sent an order right to a client instead of having it sent to my warehouse first then forward to him like usual. But nope, got greedy and did it against my better judgement, and the entire shipment was confiscated (5boxes).

    So I thought I finally had everything figured out, then this.... have been pounding my main accounts i guess too much -- need to get back to spreading the love between lots of accounts.

    so..... feel bad for me, make fun of me, ask me questions -- i don't care....

    time to go watch some college football and relax. have a good day all!

    Tight one mate. Got a bad feeling in my stomach just reading that.

    Do you have your own site to sell through?

    Who and why confiscated your shipment? And what does it have to do with sending to some warehouse first?

    fyp. this is honestly a huge blow to my business and may force me to take out "personal" funds to cover business transactions over the next 30 days until I'm back up and running.

    I have a B&M service business and have to pay several employees/contractors.

    dept of customs and homeland security.

    they were XXXX merchandise from china

    Get Paypal on the phone and find out what you can do about that reserve. I've called Paypal before and they've been more than willing to work with me on issues like this.

    This is why I gave up on the eBay / PayPal dictatorship many many years ago. I could swear they go all out to upset their customers and ruin business. But what I really find strange is the fact that these little cretins are still in business due to people like you who just bend over and take it off them time and time again.

    $30K in business in one month on ebay and he doesn't even have a confirmed bank account with Paypal? ..... I don't buy the story myself. Just doesn't add up.

    This guy had a total of $46K coming from Amazon and Ebay and yet he wanted to save $600 so this happened? .... right.

    Purpandgold88,

    Go put up a shitlist thread.

    Also, the original post is about a month old. I don't understand the situation with Babypowder, but would like an update to understand if Paypal did release some funds.

    As an EDIT:

    He hasn't been on the forums for 26 days now. Is he gone?
