Paying and receiving money is a simple affair, but there are certain things that you should be aware of before you receive money into your Paypal account.
Paypal transactions - no problem !
Millions of small personal Paypal transactions between private individuals have taken place without any problems whatsoever and usually, transferring funds in and out of your Paypal account doesn't present any problems.
There can be problems however, having received some money into your Paypal account, transferring it out to your bank account, especially if Paypal considers that the transaction was abnormal activity for account.
So, suddenly receive a large amount and you may find that your account is frozen and be asked to provide further details before a transfer is possible.

Help and advice for those who use the internet to sell something this Christmas

Paypal problem
03-12-2011
It's that time of year again and most of us will be doing some, if not most of our Christmas shopping on the internet.
It's easy and convenient and at this time of year there's a bargain or two to be had. There's plenty of demand, but there's lots of competition too. None of the online shopping outlets want to miss out on the Christmas online shopping deluge so, usually, suppliers lower their prices to tempt us to buy from them.
Those who do shop around can expect to pick up some serious bargains and my advice to anyone who is Christmas shopping on the internet is to have a good look around before you decide who to buy from.
Five Christmas's have passed since we began our Tic Top Tip article and on each of those occasions, we have warned our readers to be on the look-out for the various online Christmas shopping scams that appear at this time of year.
This year is different however. Yes, most of our readers will be shopping on the internet for Christmas bargains and it goes without saying, that they have to be careful and sensible and follow best practise when online shopping, but having dedicated five previous Christmas' Tic Top Tip articles to helping and advising those who are buying on the internet, we thought that it was high time that we offered some help and advice to those that may be using the internet to sell something this Christmas.
Whether it's locally on a bulletin board or, forum, through eBay or, using some other method - there are many from which to choose, follow a few simple rules and your internet selling experience should be trouble-free.
Properly describe the item or, items that you are selling. You don't want to agree a sale with someone who subsequently contacts you to complain that you have misled them and asks you to refund their money.
Advertise your item(s) with a telephone number. Potential buyers like to personally contact and speak to you. It gives them the opportunity to ask questions, confirm the fine detail and obtain your assurances.
Don't let a buyer collect the item(s) that you are selling without being paid first, in full, preferably in cash, or, by some other irrevocable payment method. If the item(s) that you are selling are going to be delivered by a third party delivery service, make sure that you have cleared funds before you dispatch the item(s) that you have sold.
We have recommended the Paypal payment service to our readers on many occasions. It is an easy way to pay for goods and services that are purchased on the internet. Anyone who has a Paypal account can also use it to receive funds, but if you do use Paypal as a method of receiving payment for the item(s) that you sell, there are a few things that you need to be aware of.
Paypal has a tendency to freeze and close the accounts of customers that don't adhere to their strict terms and conditions of service and it isn't uncommon for them to question any transaction that doesn't meet what they may describe as usual account activity.
So, if you are selling an expensive item at a high price or, at a price that Paypal may consider to be an unusually high amount to be passing through your Paypal account, Paypal may contact you and inform you that they have frozen your account and ask you to supply further details before they will release the account and give you access to the funds.
Secondly, you need also to be aware that, if the person who pays you with their Paypal account is dissatisfied with their purchase, for whatever reason, they may be able to stop you from receiving and clearing the funds that they have paid to you, even though they have received the items in question.
