Paypal Facebook Marketplace


Paypal Facebook Marketplace – Solved: Using Facebook Marketplace to sell something 

Your Paypal account is identified by your email address, which is all someone needs to send you money. 

Alternatively, you should attach a money request/invoice to their Paypal email address for them to pay. 

The latter is preferable because you can fully explain the item for which your customer is paying, which could come in handy if they file a “received but not as defined” dispute. 

You may be subject to a ‘new seller hold’ (for more information, see the link below), but once cleared, you can click on ‘withdraw/transfer funds’ and submit money to any connected bank account. 

However, be cautious as there are a lot of con artists around…… 

1. Scammers will always urge you to accept a PayPal payment and, if you don’t already have one, will ask you to make one. 

2. Do not be fooled by spoof emails that claim to be from PayPal. 

3. Never submit anything unless the funds are apparent in your PayPal account balance; even if you are a new seller, the funds will appear in your account balance but will be kept by PayPal. 


5. Do not be misled by so-called buyers and “Paypal” who tell you that you must either >>> 

a. Before the funds appearing in your account, submit the object and have a tracking number. 

b. Before the buyer’s invoice, which is expected to include these expenses, is credited to you, you must pay the buyer’s shipping agent through western union or Moneygram. 

6. Do not accept payments from relatives or friends for purchases. 

7. Remember that invoices are sent by vendors, not customers, so if you get an invoice that says it’s “listed as gift/paying” and that it won’t show up in your balance for 24 hours or that your money can’t be charged back, it’s a scam. 

If you have any questions, please come here and ask them, as well as read up on PayPal’s seller security so you can risk assessing your transactions.
