Strange Paypal carry on.

Recommended Posts

Just had a buyer trying to send me payment as gift. Both of us are in the UK.

Money came through in dollars but when I tried to draw it out it was short of the amount  in pounds I was expecting, maybe currency conversion fee.

Anybody else had anything similar, I've have Paypal payments via discogs today that were fine and in pounds.

That very same thing happened to me recently as well. 

I was quite puzzled by it but there doesn't seem to be any logic explanation for it. 

My guess was the buyer had Paypal credit in U.S. dollars (even though he lived in the U.K.) but that's just a guess.

I had something similar to this a while ago.

 

a payment from Europe came in dollars and converted to a bit under what it should have.

 

its not something that happens often I just let it go.

 

i think I asked on here at the time.

It's sorted  now buyer managed to work out the problem after I refunded the original dollar amount.  I will have a look at my account set up though just in case. Never had problems before.

Do Paypal get involved if an item was paid for using them ... but the item has failed to materialise (my ongoing 2 month old dispute is with Royal Mail).

You could just have claimed off PayPal. Why are Royal Mail playing games? .

Paypal and ebay in my experience would side with a buyer in a case like this.

 

you just open a dispute and then its all on the seller to sort out.
