SVM Still Posting as Cash Advance
Just a quick update: many readers confirm that SVM on eBay is still posting as a cash advance.
I’m shocked that they’d send out an email indicating the issue has been fixed when it hasn’t, but that appears to be the case.
More generally, my impression is they don’t ‘get’ what’s happening, and they continue to blame Payapl thinking that Paypal is erroneously charging this as a cash transactions. More likely, they changed their merchant category code which is causing the issue. Of course, I could be wrong, but until they understand what’s going on it’ll be tough to fix.
Be sure to leave bad feedback if you feel they deserve that. It’ll help the problem get fixed too. For now, using Amex is the best option.
