PayPal Still Diverting Etsy Seller Funds

By: Reader

Dear Ina,
Are you aware that the issue in this Etsy Bugs thread is still ongoing with no help whatsoever from PayPal or Etsy. Each pointing their fingers to the other and sellers and buyers stuck in the middle with nowhere to go for resolution.

Ina, this issue is still happening. One seller and one buyer reported it happened this morning. This has not been resolved. People have not received their wrongly directed funds and are told to call PayPal. When they call PayPal, the reps say they have no knowledge of the situation and tell them to talk to Etsy.

I hope you can print another update on this because it is not resolved, it is still happening, and something is fishy here.

Respectfully yours,
J.

Note from the Editor: PayPal last provided us with a statement on Wednesday

We've been pushing PayPal for an update yesterday and today.

Etsy updated the thread today (May 15) at 3:58 pm. "At this time, PayPal has informed us that issues with recent transactions should now be resolved," Etsy wrote (even though that's what PayPal had said yesterday). See the full update on the 
Etsy discussion board
.

UPDATE from the Editor 
5/15/15 at 8:38 pm:
PayPal sent placating response, I'm still pushing for answers to what is a problem the likes of which I haven't seen in a very long time. What a mess!

Gee,
Could ebay/PP be trying to damage etsys reputation, for stealing it's sellers and business??
Everybody KNOWS that it is PP to blame- EVERYBODY.
Cut the cord folks- no Paypal on etsy.

Why don't companies like to own up to their mistakes. This doesn't mean much to them, but it does negatively impact people they serve. There is no such thing as corporate honor. It's more like corporate dishonor.

Etsy and PayPal, you are both dishonorable. Man up and get it straightened out, and quit playing dumb.

@harriet

Owning up to something might be a good idea and morally right but why should they?

Companies have no alliance to the customer, only to the stockholders and the bottom line.

The American people have very short memories when it comes to immoral and useless companies.

They would prefer to whine instead of boycotting them.

Dishonorable company behavior does affect a company's bottom line, especially when it involves other's money and eventually it will affect the stockholders.

Then I guess Pigpay and Fleecebay aren't dishonest companies as their bottom line is doing just fine.

I don't hear any stockholders whining about the bottom line.

not surprised in the least!  This company stole my entire hope for self-sufficiency; they will do it to others too.  It's just sooooooooooooo convenient that they can turn and blame another thief-PayPal for the losses.  The seller will lose when either of these companies are involved!  Don't be surprised if you see a debit against you for THEIR losses too!

I believe this is nothing more than the "Disruptive" business practices that Donahoe is famous for touting and that we have experienced since he took the overat Ebay. Now that he is new CEO for Paypal we are already seeing the changes that will hurt sellers and the fall out for that company. He will bring the company to it knees that is what he does best. Tear it up and tear it down.

Have any of you contacted main stream TV news stations?

Etsy picks up the pace, when stories break on Prime Time News.
