You need to check the email addresses for payment that are on th actual listings. Use Sell Similar and then scroll down to check them.
This email must exactly match the one linked to PayPal. It must have been confirmed when you linked it (they send an email to it with instructions) your eBay and PayPal accounts must also be linked.
One typo of an extra space will stop funds from transferring even though My eBay and emails may say you've been paid.
Never ship until PayPal shows payment Completed and OK to SHIP.
Many sellers are making typos with their payment emails using mobile apps. Errors also occur when changing ISPs. Sellers don't leave their old emails linked and the Sell Your Item form embeds them by default.
