    Default Problem with ebay seller

    So here's my problem...

    Seen a vectra on ebay with a Z20NET breaking, I contacted the seller regarding the parts I was after, he promptly responded saying they were available and asked for my email address to send some pics to confirm they were exactly what I wanted.
    I obliged and he sent an email through with images of exactly what I was after.

    I responded to him on ebay and confirmedthat I'd received the email and could confirm that they were the correct parts, he said if I wanted them then he'd put them on a buy it now listing with the price we agreed.

    The listing appeared with the images of the parts, so I clicked b.i.n.
    This is when the issue started, I sent payment immediately via paypal (using the link through ebay)
    But once I'd finished checking out i noticed the payment hadn't cleared, on my iphone app it says "pending" so I checked out the paypal desktop site and it says the paypal address isn't registered!?

    Weird I thought so I cancelled the payment straight away (didn't like the thought of the money just floating there then someone resgistering the account and disappearing)

    Once I cancelled the paymebt I contacted the seller via eBay and told him what had happened, he apologised and said he didn't know what the issue was and to try again, I've tried again buy once again my money is just sitting there in cyberspace.

    Any advice?

    Maybe your details on paypal have changed since you last used it ? if card is wrong it reverts to an 'echeque' which can take up to 2 weeks to clear. If your credit card has expired and been renewed and you have forgotten to update your credit card details for a backup source of funding with Paypal, it reverts to an e-cheque by default.

    It could well be paypall and nothing dodgy about the seller. I'd be contacting them to find out if there are any issues first.

    find out where the seller live and if it's reasonably local, you could collect and pay in cash?.. Or if a fellow member is likely to be passing, maybe they could collect and bring them up to you?

    maybe that was the issue this time?

    Will do that, but this looks like the email address he has linked to ebay for his paypal does not exist.

    Wouldn't have bothered with pp in the first place if he was local, always the first thing I check before bidding/buying on ebay to see if I can save on p&p
