Well, I agree...I pretty well hate Paypal and Ebay, even though I use them currently...I am going to start an ecrater store as soon as I can, but it will most likely be a month to get the ball rolling...My new tactic for overseas buyers is simply charge them such a high shipping price that I can afford the tracking or don't sell to them period.

Paypal is awesome.
i bought some stuff from a guy who was a smoker.
He claimed his items were mint
i left him "neutral feedback" with the comments of "seller should state he is a chain-smoker as items sold to me (30$ worth) smelled like an ashtray (they were marvel legends figures)
seriously man these things smelled sooooo bad the whole box stunk i had to put it outside.
so this jack hole comes back with "buyer takes forever to pay" (what is taking forever to pay? i paid the next morning...)
buyer is a moron, i wish i could leave a negative "f- ebays rules"
i e-mailed him like "wow buddy sounds like you got a problem, maybe me filing a charge back on u would chill you out "
he e_mails me back all pist off.. and trying to act like i am the problem how he "stated" they were never listed as coming from a smoke free home (however he lists a figure as mint?)
its not mint if it smells un-natural DOUCHE.
so i am waiting to see if i get my money back. i hope i do.. its not the money... but it would be awesome if he had a huge amount in there and it was confiscated lol
that would make my day

Well, if it hasn't already been mentioned, Paypal is a subsidiary of eBay. They bought Paypal a few years back.
I used to have terrible issues with eBay when I was running my store two years ago as I had so many non paying bidders/winners. It infuriated me at the time because i wanted to accept cashier's check and money order to avoid paypal fees but left my self open to never getting paid. EBay made you wait to file a non paying bidder report and then made you wait to file for a refund of final value fees. Never mind the promotion I listed with for 10 cents that I no longer have access to and do not get refunded. You had to relist your item at regular listing price and if didn't sell, you're out even more money!
I eventually gave in, reopened my eBay store and switched to only accepting paypal. There are costs and benefits. The cost is the obvious double hit I take from both eBay and then paypal. I build the paypal and eBay fees into my shipping and handling cost but I don't abuse it nearly as I've seen from my competition. The benefit is that all eBay store items are fixed price buy it now. When the buyer makes an attempt to purchase, they are required to pay immediately with paypal. If they don't, my auction keeps on trucking and never gets pulled. Since I went down this route, I've had zero issues with ebay.
However, I recently had this bitch who purchased a dvd from me. She had an issue with her address where in paypal, I would click the print shipping label option and the usps linked service would not accept her address because it was incorrect. It didn't have rd/st/ln etc on it! I contacted her and she got all defensive, saying I was rude and all other kinds of idiocy that her address was correct when indeed the system said it was not. She ended up leaving me negative feedback when she still got her item within 10 days of the auction closing. I was furious, I couldn't leave negative feedback and could only "reply" to her feedback. All this over a ten dollar dvd, one fricken negative feedback to ruin my 100% status. Now I've got to wait 12 months for it to reset.
