Maybe it's different for sellers as opposed to buyers? Years ago I closed my buying account, with regret, and had no problems whatsoever. My PayPal stayed intact. Hope you figure it out. I am not surprised. If members were voluntarily allowed to close their accounts it would reflect negatively on eBay. You can't just close an account on ebay instantly, even an account in good standing takes a while before it is closed by ebay. If ebay is not allowing you to do so, it is probably because you owe money or there are outstanding issues of some kind.
People try to do this all the time. Some folks think they can run up a bill and then close the account. I agree and am having the same issue. Ebay and Paypal are terrible companies. They are dishonest and unhelpful. I've tried to cancel my Ebay account twice now. Both times it says I have unresolved listings. I am selling nothing and have a 0 balance. I spent two hours on hold with Paypal today to resolve an issue of identity theft. Someone opened a paypal account in my name, ran a few scams and deleted it. Now, collections is coming after me for something I didn't buy.
I just can't believe how terrible these companies are! No accountability.
No customer service. Why are they still in business? Amazon puts them to shame. I hope they both go bankrupt. What a rubbish, shirking excuse. Both of these companies and PayPal in particular are behaving somewhat like despots; even when you do get a human response instead of a robotic automated response, the people are rude and speak as though they are doing you a favour responding in person. D documents which we fools did, weeks later they said they'd not received them so we resent them again?
Just want it deleted but the pos customer service refuses. Due to the age of the thread, it has been closed to further replies. Please feel free to start a new thread if you wish to continue to discuss this topic. Skip to main content. Go to My eBay page.

Message 4 of Mar 21, PM. I also have been trying to close my account to no avail, I contacted Customer Service, and they said just activate a secnd account and dont have people deposit money into your current account, that they dont close accounts. This is how PayPal works. They take total control of the account, and for at least one week every time you use it, they won't let you access or close it. You are virtually locked out of your own account, with your own money! This company is a total ripoff.
