I need help with Ebay and Paypal

I just sold an item on Ebay and I was wanting to know if the money just automatically transfers to my Paypal account when the seller purchases it.

  • NO the buyer has to go into their account and pay for it. Do not ship item out until you recieve a notifcation of instant payment.

  • Well, sort of. When I sold my two home school books on line; the person bought it and paid with pay pal. The money went straight to my pay pal. I received a notice (email) from Pay Pal saying the payment was received & then I mailed the books. My question now is: How the hell do you get the money from Pay Pal!!!!????

  • Well, for you it is automatic. The buyer has to go to their PayPal account and pay for the item (there's a link in the auction for this).

    To use the money from Paypal you have a few options. One, you can apply for a PayPal debit card. Two, you can have them send you a check. Three, you can have it transferred to your bank. The check takes up to a week, the bank transfer usually 3 days. Obviously the debit card would allow immediate use.
