    Exclamation How do I report this to eBay guide

    I am going to use this thread to post links of useful items on eBay that can help you - the YoJoe user - make eBay a safer place to trade and avoid trouble. This is a work in progress as I will continue to add to it. If you have one to add, le tme know. If you want me to find one for you, let me know.

    You can report auctions using the Report link at the bottom of most of these links.

    Maybe mention, also, any suspicious emails claiming to be from ebay should be forwarded to:
    [email protected]
    They seem to go in streaks, 20 in one week, then nothing for a month, but reporting them does help to crack down on some of the scammers.

    This is where my signature would be if I had something to say.

    PayPal Payments Policy:

    I was trying to report someone who explicitly states they will not accept PayPal payments made by credit card. This is now against eBay policy. They also used the PayPal logo under Payment Options, which is also against policy

    You can only report item numbers and not sellers which is annoying

    I don't like the policy, but rules are rules

    I'm surprised this one isn't here yet.

    There is nothing more aggravating than not being able to communicate with another member.

    I just received an e-mail asking why their item wasn't delivered yet. This was received weeks after I reported them for non-payment. They never responded to that. So I am guessing they have the wrong e-mail address with Ebay.

    Ebay automatically suspends people for false contact information.
    I have gotten quite a few people suspended this way.

    i am not happy one bit. that should not even be legal.
    im at a total loss.

    theyre now telling us we cant accpet paypal period unless we upgrade to merchant account.

    now i dont feel as bad i just closed my store and dont plan to sell for awhile, even though i already have the merchant account.

    ARGH! i cant yell loud enough to express how this frustrates me!
    Only if you use their Paypal logo and the option to pay with it. If you leave that out then it shouldn't be a problem.
