PayPal u r worst

Feb 4 32 Comments

Sold one gift card in eBay.
Buyer asked to email the gift card as per lisiting . Did that in ebay

After some time buyer filed a charge back saying that account was hacked on his credit card. And PayPal filed a claim on me.
I uploaded the email conversation and paypal decided in favour of buyer and charged me $20 extra.

Seriously??????

    You're selling electronic gift cards on eBay and you're surprised that there's an element of risk underpinning that market? You are foolish. Also, it's difficult to understand you but it just sounds like you're collateral damage of someone else's scheme and you're out $40.

      That was my mistake . But why charge $20 extra

      Because the person you sold it too wanted their money back. PayPal essentially reversed the transaction but didn't reimburse you for the lost goods. Probably because you didn't make the case that you're a legitimate seller.

      What ever your are saying doesn't make sense. I lost $40 and on top of that $20 more wft

      I don't make sense? Your communication in english is not great and it's hard to understand you.

      This is normal with credit card reversals. Stripe charges $15.

  • You’re an idiot for selling gift cards online. You should have just used it rather than dealing with this.

    Welcome to eBay/PayPal, where buyer is the king.

      I found it necessary to buy third party insurance when selling valuable items to risky buyers.

      You've never heard of these chargeback scams and PayPal's first impulse to always act on buyers side? New to eBay?

    $20 is the chargeback fee. I believe you can escalate this claim to paypal and you can provide your details/feedback

    You are not the first to get scammed. Don't send gift cards via email as simple as that. Read about these gift card scams on Google.

      Why did you sell it? You have money in that card that you can use in so many places...
