Default Question on paypal and drop shipping

I listed a few items on ebay and a buyer purchased all of the inventory I had.
I have the money in paypal right now and wanted to use the funds from there to drop ship to the person who made the purchase.

Is this ok?
Any advice on this? Should I transfer the money to my bank then purchase/ship?
Will paypal limit me?
Should I refund the buyer?

its around 1.3k

Kinda nervous...first dropship ever...

I use to do this all of the time back in 2009, but this was with a pp account with my real Info, never had any problems, but things have changed now.

These are my recommendations:

Create a 2nd paypal account, and use this account to pay for your orders to have dropshipped to your customers. You don't want all of your activity on 1 account.

Accept pp alternatives like Paymate, and Moneybookers. Have the money In your hand, so that you can order your customers items right away once items are paid for, so they'd ship asap.

Make sure your supplier accepts returns, exchanges, has warranties (1 year warranties), fixes items, do research on them,etc.

These are just suggestions, I jumped into dropshipping, and made tons of money back in 2009, but items stopped working, or didn't work on arrival, and my supplier didn't accept refunds, which lead me into the world of DEBT. Don't make the same mistakes as I did. Good Luck!

Red X...thank you so much for the advice/help.

I was just overwhelmed and did not expect my items to fly like that.

thankfully, the seller accepts refunds as well as exchanging and has a pretty good reputation.

I am going to move forward and dip my toes further into the water...

Fair warning here, any time someone has purchased the total amount of items I had listed available or close to it, they were scammer. Just my personal experience and be ready for it, especially talking $1,300...
