Ebay and Echecks

I sold something via auction, and the person paid with an echeck not set to clear until March 5th.

Is that allowed?

Obviously I won't ship until it clears, but I'm a little annoyed that now I have to wait for my money (I wasn't expecting this kind of delay).

Re: Ebay and Echecks

im not sure, ive never heard anything that says its not aloud, so unless you put in your listing that you do not accept echecks i would say its aloud. A huge pain to have to wait though

Re: Ebay and Echecks

I too just had this happen yesterday, but I thought I already had my ebay settings so you could only pay with funded paypal...no e-checks. In the past I had someone pay via e-check, a week or two later it couldn't clear, then I had to wait another 2-3 weeks for it to try to clear again. It finally did, but it was a long, drawn-out painful process!

Hopefully yours and mine clears asap!

Re: Ebay and Echecks

I accidentally paid by echeck once. I didn't realize it wouldn't just come out of my account. I imagine it would be annoying for a seller, so I haven't done it again.

if you do not have a back-up funding source (credit or debit card) it will process as an echeck from your bank account.

Re: Ebay and Echecks

I always do stuff as a withdrawl from my bank account and it always comes out like the next day. I do have my card number in there and maybe that is the difference, but maybe it won't actually take that long?
