Am I missing something? I order something from an Ebay seller that I had used before. They shipped promptly and the package never arrived. Tracking stopped after leaving China. After an appropriate waiting tome, the I asked for a refund and promptly got it.

So I reordered the item from them. Weeks later it hasn't shipped. I contacted them and they said there were no flights to my country. After another wait I asked them to cancel the order, which they did. Now I'm trying to figure out how to gt my money back. I've contacted them twice, but no response.

I tried to open a dispute on Ebay, but they system just transfers me to PayPal. When I try to resolve it on PayPay, they send me to Ebay. If I can't get the refund through the seller, what is the process to get it back from PayPal? The order status is "CANCELLED" so there should be no question that a refund is due just no one who will take responsibility to do so.

I have found that anytime a situation is beyond computer bots, it's best to talk to a live individual. I would start with eBay, then go to PayPal if necessary.

Calling the US is expensive. It would likely be cheaper to just forget about the money if that's the best option. It's less that $30.

I made a Big Deal about a Russian HV rectifier tube that only cost $1!.

I asked a fourth time and got the refund and an apology.

Good for you. Persistence does often pay off.
