I sold an item for somebody else high value and buyer collected but due to its value Ebay have a 20 day hold on the money despite it been marked as pick up and buyer leaving positive feedback.

How have you buggered it up?

It doesn’t sound like you did anything wrong. But fwiw when I sell high value items I ask for cash on collection.

That's not buggered up. Are you fairy new to ebay? They do hold the money to ensure no issues when you are new.

I offered postage on this occasion and forgot to put cash payment if collecting.
That's how I've messed up

I'm not new no but this has caused a big argument with the person I sold it for

Did the buyer pay via paypal? If so there could potentially be an issue if they collected in person.

Just tell the friend to google the eBay rules I mean clearly they don’t trust you that is the issue not eBay.

Then they should have sold it themselves

Well next time tell them they can sell their item themselves! Sounds like you’ve done them a favour and if they’re not happy that’s their fault for getting someone else to do a job they could have taken ownership for.

It's not buggered up, just have to wait for the money. Easy. The only one issue is if they buyer collected they could easily say they've not had it - postage with proof of delivery is safest. eBay is a bit ridiculous sometimes - even if the buyer has left feedback they somehow manage to win non-delivery cases. It's bloody ridiculous.

But if your friend is complaining, they should have done it themselves.
