eBay

Anyone else here just DONE with ebay? Because I certainly am after today. After my last listing ends, I am not using them ever again to sell.
I want to warn people of this ridiculous new way they've found to inconvenience sellers. AGAIN.
So it turns out they have this awesome new policy where
YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO TOUCH YOUR PAYMENTS FOR UP TO 21 DAYS.
That's right, you get paid, but you don't see any of that money until ebay decides to release the hold.
Here's what happened to me:
So I sold an item and the buyer paid. I go to my paypal to see that everything is okay and that's when I see it's on lockdown until whenever.
WELL AWESOME. That means I need to pay for shipping out of pocket. Okay, whatever.
Now the buyer got the item and now wants to return it.
Now I have to pay out of pocket AGAIN to refund them the full amount because eBay took their cut out of it.
So now I'm paying $10 by the end of this just for shits and giggles apparently(luckily the buyer seems willing to agree to pay return shipping.)

TL;DR:

I WENT TO EBAY TO MAKE MONEY AND I'M LEAVING WITH LESS THAN I CAME IN WITH.

Ebay is (almost) all sunshine and rainbows as a buyer, but as a seller, they've lost me.
