PayPal does, in fact, pay the seller. It's just a form of buyer protection. If there's an issue; the item is not as described, arrives damaged, et cetera, then I notify eBay and they step in. All of this, ideally, before the money leaves my bank account. The $50.00 is currently "pending" in my PayPal account.
