*Please excuse this massive rant about Ebay, you've probably seen on Facebook / heard it before but just want to rant it out somewhere*
Bloody Ebay are useless for new sellers (even though I've been on Ebay for 5 years). You have to provide proof that you are able to be a reliable seller through a previous ebay account. Now I followed the tutorial on it; and it still keeps holding the money (21 days it expects ebayers to go without their flaming items because I can't afford to send them), money I need to send the damn items. They have this arse about face way of bloody running things. This is the lovely message on my Paypal;
"As you're a new eBay seller, we're temporarily holding the money for this transaction for up to 21 days. You'll then be able to access your money, providing you've posted the item to the buyer's address stated on this page, and your buyer hasn't reported any problems.
Can I use my held funds for postage costs?
Yes. You'll pay for your eBay or PayPal postage label just like normal. After you've paid for your label, the amount you paid for postage will be released from your pending balance.
You may be able to access your money sooner if you:
1. Post your item with trackable postage such as Royal Mail Recorded Delivery or Special Delivery
2. Save all proof of postage and email tracking information

And the one on Ebay
"You have a PayPal payment.
As part of the payment process for new eBay sellers, your payment is on hold. Please send the item and provide tracking information or delivery confirmation, so that the money may be released.
If you purchase postage labels through eBay or PayPal, the cost of the purchase will be released from your pending balance shortly after purchase. Click the Print postage label button below. It's free and delivery information is automatically uploaded to My eBay. Or learn how to manually enter your delivery information.

How cock eyed is that?! The only reason I set up a new account is so I could start with a clean bloody slate! Then they do this to me! Ebay once upon a time was a good place to sell. Now it's only so you end up worse than what you where originally!
I'm really sorry about ranting and using such language on here. I do get really frustrated as do the Ebayers that purchase from me. All I can offer them is " You're money hasn't been transferred yet".. :/ Ah well..
