1.  Contact your seller(s) to let them know what happened.

2.  Call Paypal for their assistance.

A credit card should always be used to avoid this problem.


Your bank is likely going to charge you fees....


A credit card is safer to buy with too. Gives you additional consumer protections above and beyond eBay's Buyer Protection...

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.
