    I just purchased an mp3 player and after sending the payment I realized that the seller can't ship the item to Canada (for some reason I don't know). Anyways I sent him an e-mail about the situation but just in case he doesn't reply what should I do? I sent the payment through PayPal but since I have almost no money on the account it is going to use an e-check. One idea that came to mind is that I can close my paypal account before the e-check clears and all pending transactions should immediatly cancel. Will I be able to re-open my account later on?

    Contact him. Maybe for an extra $5 he can send it to Canada.

    Get him to return it. If he doesn't report it to PayPal and they should return your cash.

    Don't close your account. If he/she is a high volume seller, it shouldn't be a problem. He will charge more shipping, or give you your money back. It will be resolved before long if I had to guess. Last resort would be to go to Paypal.

    Send it to me. I'm in the U.S. and I'd love to have a new MP3 player. :D

    Contact paypal ASAP and file a non delivery. The seller will have 10 days to ship or pay up.

    But the buyer is the one who screwed up and didn't look at the shipping options :confused:

    It doesn't matter. Payal gives the seller 2 options which is to either refund the money or ship the player. The seller is being a dumbass by not refunding the money.
