Default Just a quick heads up...Paypal is cracking down

They are getting ready for the holidays, make sure all your phones are ready to be answered. In the next 3 months, paypal will be calling you almost every time you withdraw, and prepare for 21 day holds... They are coming back even on good accounts... My near TRS accounts are even getting the 21 day hold now and they are almost a year old!!

Noticed policy changes last week. Always means changes to their methods. Sighs.

Constant battle to beat them.

Thanks for the heads up, 'cutter

If this is true, what the hell? Some powersellers will need additional staff just to deal with PP.

I am registered via mobile so I am off shopping to get 25 cheap mobiles - expenses expenses expenses.

When I go out now, I will have to carry a bag with all the mobiles in there. Some radiation!

Thanks for warning OP.

Not with the seller new details call.. but if its a regular inquiry it'd be instant limit as usual . The call is just to let you know about the new changes..offering 14 day returns etc.. I actually prefer 14 days because stupid buyers open cases quick because they actually think our return policies matter.. eBay doesn't care which is why I find it funny

How do you get paypal to call? Everytime I link a phone to my paypal and withdraw they never call, not once. I usually withdraw about $400-$500 at a time sometimes 3 times a day even, I just want paypal to call me at least once, what am I doing wrong? please help..

They call during the holidays. Maybe its my tethering ips. But its been much better than it was during Christmas last year. I'd sometimes get 2 Calls a day. I'm not sure what you sell but my items can be high risk. Sales are terrible right now. Returns have been higher than normal but that's the price of trying new items. Maybe I should just sell DVDs like everyone else lol

Is this something that applies to UK members? Christ, I dont even think the number I used to register my stealth account even works anymore. I used one of those VOIP landline number providers when I set up my account a few months ago, it worked to begin with, but last time I tried to call the number it didnt even ring, the line just went dead! So if they try and ring me they will get nowhere, what will happen then? Will I get banned? I ought to revise my phone number ASAP and create a new working landline number I guess. What does anyone think?

Reading all the post before yours, it sounds like PP will call and see if the number works. If the number doesn't work the account can get suspended.

On the bight side, if your account were suspended you wouldn't have to worry about your bad DSR's. And you could use all the advice you received here for a fresh start and will be a TRS in no time.

Ebay calls me every time there is an update to ask if I need anything or have any questions that need answered. They also ask if I would like a free $500 business consultation as well. Sometimes on the phone for 10 min or more.

Just a normal deal now.

Never in many years have I been called by Paypal for anything. I am doing what Jbluntz is doing and withdrawing daily sometimes more and never get calls.

Must be what you guys sell and how you sell it.
