    If you buy in other currency's pp converts the money internally for you & ads a certain markup for its service. You see it immediately in your account. Customer also can pay in A$ , if you sent a A$ invoice, if paid in A$ you get an extra spot on the left : first your main currency, under other currency.

    In my account,

    $
    C$
    A$
    HKD
    ...

    Best

    Maybe the customer doesn't know better. I have dealt with peaple stupid as bread... sometimes we stopped asking ourself about the stupidity ....
    Anyways, I have experienced also : claims SNAD and never shipped back and got the money from PP.
    I think you are better protected via eBay seller protection than pp seller rap Programm.

    Call eBay and point this out to them. If they buyer never shipped the item back, they should not have issued a refund.

    Was it sent to the same email address as you normally use on your paypal account, or perhaps another email of yours? If so, you can use the second email address to sign in and then link the two addresses and the money payment will merge.

    I had already linked two accounts beforehand, have signed in with both and the transaction is not there. I think she is on her own with this one, as I can't be certain that she didn't send it to a slightly different email address that happens to also be my name (which appeared on the confirmation screenshot)

    Something just occurred to me. I went to Resolution Centre, and there are no cases open against me requiring a response. Since she said she opened a case yesterday, wouldn't that indicate that she used the wrong email address?

    Is this Birdseye or Nailhead or something else? It is a close up of a Brioni suit. Screen Shot 2019-01-12 at 11.51.13 AM.png

    I'm really surprised Ebay is even a thing still, with the level of scammery that goes on. I've been scammed before, both as a buyer and a seller, but the latest thing has made me want to leave the platform for good.
