Wanted to wait with this post until I have received my own copy of Messiah of Evil to counter the Paypal woes.
Nothing against @ScoJo or Ondes Positives at all. They can't do anything about this and they didn't do anything wrong. On the contrary they were very helpful in getting my order fulfilled.
Some time before the drop on Friday I was ready and to jump on the test press film can. The moment it was released added it to my bag an paid through paypal. By default I have no paypal balance but have funds transferred from my bank account with my credit card as a backup. I have never had any issues this way.
After completing the payment I got this error message on the order page of Ondes Positives. Because the error occurred there I thought I might have something to do with a lot of people trying to buy the same thing at the same time.
So I tried again. And again. And again.
I really wanted that film can :-)
I changed payment on one try to take the money from my credit card in stead of from my bank account. Same error.
I was still thinking that not one of my payments went through. Minutes later I see 7 mails from paypal in my inbox that said that my payments have been on hold.
@ScoJo already explained why.
The above happened on Februari 2nd. On the 4th I get the message from paypal that my payments are rejected and I will get a refund.
The one payment I made with my credit card got charged immediately on the 2nd and refunded on the 4th. The funds for the 6 other payments were taken out of my bank account on the 6th. And the refund is still pending.... on the 13th.
I just got of the phone with Paypal. They told me I will get an update in the next 24 hours. They wait with refunding money until they funds have arrived from my bank account. They say it takes 6 business days for this to happen. At that time they will refund the money to my paypal balance.
After that I can transfer the funds again to my bank account.
Anyways. Writing this I got it out of my system. And today or tomorrow I probably will receive my highly anticipated Messiah of Evil order. Can't wait to put on the white gloves and finger my can.
