Default Does eBay or Paypal own a warehouse?

This topic is about eBay / Paypal's "secret" warehouse location. I want to know more about it..

I've heard some rumors about this, but I was never able to verify if they were true. I've only heard about the data center locations, which is painfully obvious.

I'm not talking warehouses on the buyers or sellers side here, I'm talking about an eBay / Paypal sub-company owned warehouse that was (or used to be) pretty hush-hush and used for disputes as sort of an escrow. Apparently some items would get stockpiled there when a dispute was filed after a sellers account was suspended, and in fact not get returned to the original seller.

Anyone heard of anything like that?

Never known eBay to ask for an item to sent to eBay and not returned to the seller.

Secret Locations? If anyone here knew...they probably wouldn't tell anyone about it. Also, it's probably just that, a "rumor".

They have things sent to an office, not a warehouse.

I had a rep request that I send some baseball cards to their location before I sold it to 'have them authenticated'
The address was a suite, not a warehouse after looking on google maps. Naturally, they have many locations, but I doubt they are warehouses unless its converted for office space.

Ebay does not sell items. They are basically an escrow service.

That's actually the Japanese brokerage firm.

They dish out instructions on how to package etc etc.

Not quite what the OP means.

Mid 2007, there was a shed-load of bags being pulled by ebay because of disputes over their authenticity.

Some sellers sent them into ebay. Most had proof the items were real and there was every expectation they would get them returned.....

Some ebay staff acquired free bags.

To see the warehouse, you have have to look in the mirror in a dark room and say 'Ebay' three times.

Hah sneaky and thieving.

I remember in late 90s-early 00s when they were using Escrow to hold items and payment to promote security - don't remember if that involved eB directly however.

You mean a buyer is asked to return an item to a warehouse instead of the sellers return address? I always get my returns.

Have you been missing returns?

Extremely doubtful, although I do remember details about the case concerning the handbags. From what I recall, most of those were in fact, not real.
