[PSA] ebay gift card transaction details no longer available from Paypal
Deal DetailsLast Edited by mlacey3 March 24, 2016 at 10:56 AM
For eBay gift cards linked to a Paypal account before March 8, 2016, transaction details will still be available under Paypal Redemption Codes
The transaction history on the these giftcards is available at
See the attachment, 3 gift cards before March 8, 2016 will show under the Paypal transaction, but the new gift card ($46.08) will not have any detail.
I ran into a problem eBay charged my eBay giftcard for a failed purchase (server error). The order does not show up under either eBay or Paypal but the balance was taken out of my eBay gift card. eBay customer service was not at all helpful, claiming they could only see the GC balance and let me call Paypal. Every time I asked for a supervisor eBay told me there wasn't one available and would call me back. 24 hours later the amount is still missing from my eBayg GC. I never got a call from eBay so I filed a complaint to state department of justice.
imo if you have quite some eBay gift cards, unable to view transaction details can be a major problem. And there is really no way to dispute the balance on the GC.
(An eBay GC is now associated with an eBay account after first use.)

Please file a complaint to your state attorney general/department of justice. Enough complaints might prompt an investigation into eBay/Paypal
