Mods, 'pologies if this forum is only for discussing actual auctions, thought it would be best for this question. So I just started regularly selling stuff on eBay. eBay Feedback Profile for squirrelcar I'm trying to trim my collection down in the next month or so, so was flipping some extra exclusives before doing my vintage stuff--but anyways... 1) Seller sent me a payment via PayPal. I am NOT over the $500 receipt limit for a personal account for the month of April. I have, however, received more than $500 in the last 30 days. 2) I can't deny the payment, but I can't accept it without upgrading to a Premier account. I don't want to do this, because I use PayPal sparingly and the Premier account would hit my pocketbook. Also, to be frank, I think it's bullshit that they're requiring it. 3) I got nowhere with PayPal customer service. I don't post in this forum much, but please believe me when I tell you I'm so reasonable on the phone it's practically superhuman. I don't freak out or anything--I'm calm, polite, and sensible, and usually it works. But it was clear that they're weren't gonna do anything. They did tell me that it was an eBay policy that I have to upgrade, but I received a payment later that I can accept without upgrading (I received that when I wasn't over $500 in the previous 30 days). 4) I want to continue selling sporadically without having to upgrade. Is it that I have to stay under $500 for a thirty day period or is it a calendar month? And now that I've received this payment, how can I get to it without upgrading? * What else do I need to know about selling on eBay? Any pearls of wisdom so's I don't get burned?
