Default DEAD BROKE, paypal has hold on funds

SO SInce I am DEAD BROKE and ebay is my only real job, I can not pay 4 shipping out of my pocket. Paypal put a hold on ALL of my ebay transactions that paid me so far. To release the funds, I have to provide tracking and the person has to leave me positive feedback. Soo, how is it possible if I do not have the money to ship out the items??!!!
I still have auctions ending soon, I have a revolution money exchange account opened/ Is there a way I could send an request for money BEFORE They pay me with paypal? Are there any other creative FREE ways to have customers pay before they pay with paypal??? thank you all for help!
BTW< this is the new account I opened using "the system".

You can refund their payments, and try the old "someone hijacked my paypal account" and then send them to alternative checkout method like google, but you will probably fine only 50% or less will repay.
Key is to have many backup accounts and alternatives, they control the game so you just have to find ways to screw them over, within the rules.

If you're dead broke and can't even pay for shipping then you have a serious problem and if you rely on ebay 100% for income with no back-up and knowing what they are capable of, then I would say the problem is your fault for not being prepared.

Default paypal 21 day hold a way around it??

I was thinking if it is possible to at the end of the auction send a request for money through paypal. INSTEAD of the invoice with all the ebay auction info? Just wondering if the 21 day hold will be on my funds if I make it seem as though the payment was for something else? Has anybody done this? thnka!

I've also had money problems as sales have been going down on eBay because they enrage sellers so sellers stop buying and their new "my ebay" and new search that basically all new accounts irritates pretty much everyone. Their ban on mailed payments is really going to chase most customers away.

I personally have not bought anything on eBay since a few months before their new feedback policy. I used to shop on eBay a lot and now I just do a google product search instead. Basically, why would I want to buy on eBay as most sellers only take paypal so I'd have to use that and basically I'd have eBay and paypal trying to stalk me and link my new accounts with my seller accounts. I moved some time ago and eBay does not know my current address at all, though I do have a paypal account with it as a web hosting company I use doesn't have a merchant account.

I've also never ever bought a thing on amazon, ioffer, or any ebay clone.

SO, I used the somebody broke into my paypal account and the darn buyer left me a negative. MY first and only feedback and now my brand new account is -1. SHe said I was a scammer and a liar and I tried to have her pay by ebays unauthorized method.
I am screwed. I am making back up accounts whenever I go to the libraryBUT I am so upset, I feel like crying!!!
We were emailling eachother back and forth, and since the first email she calling me a scammer and a liar. SHE told me to file a mutual withdrawl and she put the negative.
BUT some of the people paid by paypal and I refunded. Then sent a request for money, not mentioning ebay and there is no 21 day hold. I had 2 people pay. SO I now I have a whole $15.00 to my name. Now I have to wait for the 4 days to transfer to my bank.
so should I start all over? Is there ANY way to get it removed?
Seriously, I have no idea what I would do with out all your help and THIS forum!!

bbcoach get a life really. I was trying to tell the truth instead of fluff it up where she would end up in the same spot again in the future. Basically, you just need to find any money possible to send out the packages for they can be delivered and you can get your money, but in the future always have money saved for critical eBay "situations that they put us in."

Default your professional opinions please!

i value all of your opinions, sorry to repeat my post from the paypal board. BUt I had a 21 day hold on my funds, so I told the buyers that my paypal account was compromised. I get this nutjob that accuses me of scamming her and that she does not feel comfortable with me as a seller so she wants out.
She told me to file a mutual withdrawl and like the dumbass, I did. She leaves me negative feedback saying I am a scammer because I wanted her to pay by another system other than paypal. I was PISSED, so I email her telling her that was not cool and unfair, blah blah I *might* have said I was going to slit her throat while she is sleeping. I'm totally kidding but I wanted to tell her that!!
BUt I told her that her 100% feedback is going to go down ( I know stupid, but I was/am soo mad) THis email was NOT through the ebay system, our personal email boxes.
NOw fast forward, she says she is reporting my emails. BUT I already reported her to ebay for her calling me a scammer and a liar.
NOW tonight I log on and I can not bid on more than 1 item! I have 1 item removed for "miscatogorization".
Am I about the be kicked off with my -1?? SHould I just jump ship and close this account and start all over. OR wait it out, not list and start listing on another account?

I suggest opening a new ebay/paypal account. Just make sure you use the Stealth Book so you do not get linked.
