Is it normal for Paypal to hold payment to the Seller until confirmation of receipt by the buyer?

Yes they can put a hold on making funds available to the seller. Depending on your profile this can be changed where the money is available instantly. If however there is an issue and they find in favour of the buyer (often the case), then the money will be debited out of your PayPal account or the funding source.

PayPal give you some protection but for sellers it is becoming increasingly tenuous. I sold a shock on eBay, paid with PayPal, tracked and signed for then 3 months later the buyer disputes the transaction with his credit card provider claiming his eBay account was hacked.

I get a notification about the transaction being disputed and when it is finally resolved the message from PayPal
"The credit card provider has found in favour of the card holder however as you are a loyal PayPal customer we will not pass the chargeback to you"

Just what the hell have I got to do with this. There was full tracking to the delivery. Either it was fraud or the account was hacked. Either way that is for the Credit Card provider to pick up.

I suggest meeting outside your local bike shop when selling! As a buyer, I would be happy with doing that.

Advice please; I've purchased a pair of Hope brakes advertised as in good working order; both callipers are seized. The seller has now admitted that they have sat around unused for a while, so it's not a surprise they are in that state.

Hope have quoted me £55 a calliper for a rebuild, I've suggested to the seller that we split the cost as I don't want to return them having fitted them to my ebike and after buying new hose and replacing the parts that were missing (circa £40)...he is now not replying to messages.

Now I can raise a case via PayPal and get my money back, but then I'm out of pocket for the parts I brought and all the time (and massive ball-ache) I've spent fitting them.

Suggestions gratefully recieved...

I'd contact the BuySell mod - https://www.pinkbike.com/u/isaacschmidt. He may threaten to ban the user if they don't cooperate and see if the seller will accept your offer. Something I would do if I was still a mod.

I'm selling a bike and the buyer gave me their email, address, and paypal.me link. I can't for the life of me figure out where/how I'm supposed to verify that the address he gave me is the "verified address" for their paypal account. Does anyone know how check if their address is verified?
Also, as the seller I just send a request for the money and it's up to the buyer to select "good and services" when they go to pay, right?

I have bought a product at alaplante@lionmark.com but it does not answer, he has sent me a tracking number but the package does not appear for more than 1 month and I do not have a positive response ... I put a claim in paypal since I think that it may be a scam by alaplante.

Has anyone had sellers just go quite? I have been speaking with one made offer and worked out some final details. Now silence from seller. I can see messages have been read. Thank you, Chris

Yes, I had a similar thing, some messages back and forth, then make an offer to buy, nothing. The messages have not been read, then a about 6 weeks later the item disappears.

I didn't lose too much sleep over it and found a similar item. If the seller cannot be bothered to reply I rather take the view that they probably shouldn't have my money.

Contrast that with another seller I bought a fork from who was incredibly helpful during and after the purchase. We ended up with messaging about setup, servicing and the best source of the bits to do the servicing.

Did you work it out? I am in the same boat.. and he paid echeck which is a No in the safe transaction rulebook.

Well I believe I got scammed. User that goes by Rockymthn had a bike listed 2019 Giant Talon 3. Communication was made and seemed legit. Money was sent via paypal. They requested I send them a picture of the paypal transaction which I did and was told that I would be updated on shipping info. Now I have heard nothing back. Pretty pissed off.

dude, just contact paypal... assuming you followed the rules, and didn't send money as a personal transaction/gift... easy process
