Paypal question please

Recommended Posts

its not for me, its for a mate, because I have mine set up differently.

 

Basically, him and his missus have just bought their first computer/laptop, and they have set up a paypal account.

 

She has bought something which has arrived, and has paid by paypal but has been asked to pay the money now ?

 

They have registered a credit card. I've told him they should have the money so don't do anything for now, and they should also have an email from paypal saying the payment has been made.

 

What I do is put money directly into paypal from a bank account and it is just sitting in there to make instant payments, so I'm not sure what to tell him to do.

sorry Im confused, are you saying that they puchased something using paypal, have received the goods but are now receiving a demand for payment from the seller?

 

I think thats what he says, he just phoned me earlier and I said don't do anything just yet and look and see if you have had an email from paypal too.

 

Its the first purchase they have made, the account is now opened because they validated the 2 amounts of money that paypal put into the account.

Shouldn't they have paid already? If they haven't pay it, if they have then check it's gone through and inform the seller.

 

Don't really understand the situation. :o

Did they buy it off ebay? If so it could just be that the seller has accidentally clicked on the 'request payment' button again. Best thing to do would be to contact the seller and sort it out.

There should also be a record in their account on paypal as well as an email. Whichever way, nobody would have sent the goods before receiving payment so theirs must have gone through.

I got a phishing email from a group purporting to be the National Lottery, saying I'd won an internet sweepstake of £500 odd quid. Much more believable than the £250m bollocks you get from them bloody Nigerian princes.

Some of those are getting pretty clever these days, not just the old superficially spoofed link/address crap.

I've used eBay a fair few times and usually the seller only sends the item once the buyer has paid the desired amount through paypal or credit card etc...

 

Could be one of those emails.....

Right, here's what I know on the subject: When John Paul II passed away, the cardinals met in the Vatican and chose some German dude.

 

What?? Oh, PAYPAL questions... :)
