Ebay do not take lightly to loosing commision on multi-thousand pound sales.
ebay and paypal are a bunch of money grabbing basta£ds, for example, someone in australia purchased some bits from my wifes store, we were paid via paypal, so my wife sent the goods off to this person, person had good feedback buy only around 30 ish in total, next thing was paypal took the money back off my wife saying the person had paid for the items with a stolen or dodgy card........
so....person in australia so i could not pop round and have a little word in their ear, paypal looked after themselves and took the money back off of my wife, ebay not interested, aussies did not reply, us out of pocket
i have done a lot of business on ebay and i find them unethical in their approach and their control of rogue people, the risk is always passed to the buyer or seller.
i had a couple of nasty experiences which showed at the end of the day you can be paid via paypal but they can take the money back with no comeback by you for some time after.....beware!!
they say you dont get the protection of ebay if you buy direct, joke, nothing better than buying from a reputable shop, or from a person you have met and trust.
