I snipped (:-D) and won an auction this morning on another ID and paid immediately. I received a message from PayPal that the payment is "unclaimed" because the seller is "not registered". PayPal has given me the option to cancel the payment.
I really want this widget - an accessory for my hand-me-down iPad1, and they are hard to find. There is another auction for the same type of widget that ends this afternoon. I have sent a message to the seller asking "what's up?".
Anyone else ever have this problem? If I cancel the payment, can the seller open a UID against me?

Heidi, if you really want it, pull their info & call 'em!> http://www.ebay.com/sch/ebayadvsearch?_skipfnorm=1

Uh ibuy....if the person is not registered....then how can they open a uid?
Sheesh - going from one ID to another is a real pain!! Hey, chico (:^O), they are registered on eBay, but their email address is incorrect on PayPal. I called PayPal and they did tell me that they would not be able to leave feedback or file a UID if I cancel, but from what I learned from a very savvy poster, is that you can do just about anything from a smart phone;-).
Thanks Honda, I used the link to get their info and left them a message (they wern't home) and also emailed them. If I don't hear from them by 5:30 my time, I will cancel and bid on the other item - and I thought eBay was supposed to be fun!!

From my past experience ibuy....if a payment is unclaimed, the usual suspect is they "accidently" entered the wrong PayPal email in the description....or, (talking about iphones) before the new mobile update...when revising a listing, would wipe out the paypal addy on the sellers end.
Check their selling history....if they have indeed made recent sales...the chances of them NOT having a paypal addy is slim.

Hi again Mint - Their last sale was well over a year ago - they only buy and sell occasionally and have a feedback score of 34. It looks like they just sell off older computers and accessories every couple of years.
I sent them an email using the address that PayPal had, and got a message from the "mailer demon" that it was undeliverable. I'm thinking that they just forgot to update PayPal with their new email address - which doesn't help me, so just have to wait and see if they call be before the other auction ends. Thanks for your help!!

I relaxed and ......... they called me:-D. She was online with PayPal when she called, so I walked her through putting in another email address, and BINGO, the payment went through. Now, lets see if I can get through another week without having to ask for help - thanks minty and honda :-x

........Hi Hoo...& Welcome to the PT Board !!!
Do you know a Mr. Hanky ????...:^O

Now I am really going to confuse you - Had to use this ID because I ran out of my 10 allowed posts until my feedback reaches 10.
Between this board and one other, the new ID has been called HH, Heidi, hidy, ho, and hoo. Hoo is OK as long as it is pronounced "who" as in "woo-hoo" and not "ho" and in "hoe":-p

Dear Hoo , I would never refer to you as a HOE !!]
Calling someone a garden tool is unforgiveable !:^O
But I know Ibuy as the Sniper Queen......:-x
And you seem to be a Snipper of some sort......;-)
So yes ....I'm confused ?????
That said........( & no one ever gets this choice..)
What would you like to be called ???
