Man will Ebay ever sort it out?

i was selling something recently and everything was going smoothly until i tried to collect payment from my buyer.
As normal it was by paypal, but to my annoyance i couldn't link directly from ebay. apparently this was because my primary email account on paypal had terminated and although i have two others in their system, my identity could not be verified. all this meant that i never sold anything and got the buyer to cancel the paypal payment.

ebay was having none of this though and decided i still had to pay a sale fee, but as you've guessed it because my paypal was screwed i couldn't pay the .15p for sale (that wasn't a sale). despite repeated attempts to clear up the situation ebay decided to terminate my account. fuckers!

surly there has to be a better way?

You deserve it for using eBay. Anyone dumb enough to think eBay is safe and unbiased needs a headcheck.

It's strict. Protective. Not stupid.

At least, I don't think it is...

On second thought, it depends how lucky you are.

I mostly shop on Amazon, but I use paypal fairly often. But, I am a working girl with a steady job, so I have more money at my disposal than some HSers working after school jobs. eBay is relatively fine so long as you know what you're doing, of course, I've never been a seller before, so I can't comment on that. I'm a shopper.

I see no problem with ebay, but then again its not like im dependent on it either. It just comes in handy every now and again.
