PayPal Virtual Agent***:** PM*Hi! I'm PayPal's Virtual Agent. I can help with common questions like "what's the status of my dispute" or "I want a refund".*If I can't help, I'll transfer your message to an agent.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*Problem with a pending order*PayPal Virtual Agent***:** PM*It looks like you need help with a pending payment. Is that right?*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*Yes*PayPal Virtual Agent***:** PM*Sure, I'd be happy to help. Can you select the transaction you are looking for from the list below?*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*Transaction ID: *DY******N******L*Amount: $ **.***Date: DEC **, *****PayPal Virtual Agent***:** PM*Your transaction status is "Pending" because PayPal has authorized the transaction but the merchant hasn't processed your payment yet. The transaction was authorized and funds were held (authorized) on December **, ****. Most merchants will complete your order a few days after they receive it. Some merchants will wait until they're ready to ship your order. The authorization is valid until January **, **** after which the merchant will not be able to charge you.**This transaction can't be cancelled by PayPal. Please contact the merchant to cancel this transaction or request a refund.**Here's the merchant's contact info:**Merchant name : Jereco Global LLC**Merchant phone number : ***-***-******Merchant email : *****@***.com**Did this help resolve the issue or question you had?*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*No, I need more help*PayPal Virtual Agent***:** PM*I am sorry to hear that.*Please send us a detailed message below and an agent will respond to your message within an hour.*You can close the window and come back to it when it’s convenient for you. When we respond, we’ll send you a notification with a link to the Message Center where you can reply.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*The merchant's website promised they would ship orders made on Saturday on Monday. The order was to have *-* priority shipping. I am going to be out of town starting Friday. This order has not shipped yet so there is no way I will get it on time. It needs to be cancelled. I used PayPal to make sure I would have support as a customer in case the merchant I had not used before did not do as their website says. But now your bot says that I cannot cancel the order? The order needs to be cancelled or it will be left on my porch un*on my porch unattended for a week when I am out of town.*Also why is there no live chat? Or other customer service. Very disappointed in PayPal right now.*Also, the merchant is not answering their phone.*Please go ahead and leave us a message if you haven't already, and we will get back to you in few hours.**Your file has been uploaded.*Go Do Pranks ... ping.jpg * *.** MB**Your file has been uploaded.*Go Do Pranks ... ping.jpg * *.** MB*Please go ahead and leave us a message if you haven't already, and we will get back to you in few hours.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*This transaction is not authorized since the merchant did not send it on Monday as promised on their website. I do not authorize any charges on my card for this transaction and will dispute it with my credit card company if necessary. I revoke any authorization to Paypal to charge any credit cards for this transaction because there is now no way it can be delivered in the *-* days as promised by the merchant.*I am very surprised that there is no way to cancel a transaction that has not be sent as promised and am disappointed in Paypal. Maybe AmazonPay is a better option for the future.*Al*You are now chatting with Anil*Al*Anil***:** PM*Hello, welcome to PayPal. My name is Anil. I will be happy to assist you today.*Hello Levana.*Let me review your chat history to help you better.*Please allow me *-* minutes.*Please go ahead and leave us a message if you haven't already, and we will get back to you in few hours.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*ok*you there?*Al*Anil***:** PM*Thank you for waiting.*Yes, I am here, was reading through your chat history.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*ok*Al*Anil***:** PM*I did review the chat history and see that the merchant did not send you the goods*services as promised.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*Good. Thanks*So you will cancel it?*Al*Anil***:** PM*I am reviewing your transaction log, please allow me * minutes.*At the beginning of your transaction you have provided the transaction details *DY******N******L*$ **.***DEC **, ******Just to confirm, this is an authorization, PayPal does not have the authority of canceling an authorization for any merchant, however you need to contact the merchant to get this authorization cancelled or you have to wait for ** days post ** days our system will have an option to void this transaction.*From reviewing your account, I can see that the status of your order is 'Pending'. This means that your order has been received by the merchant, but your payment has not yet been processed.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*This transaction is not authorized.*I do not authorize this transaction and will dispute it with the credit card company if it is charged.*What type of customer protection is this? Why am I even using Paypal?*Al*Anil***:** PM*I understand your situation. I am very sorry, please allow me * minutes to check if there is any other alternative*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*I am telling you right now that I absolutely do not authorize Paypal to charge my credit card for this transaction.*I have informed the merchant of this as well.*Al*Anil***:** PM*I do understand you wish to cancel this transaction as this is not authorized by you as per the terms and conditions for an authorization, if the transaction is in Pending status then only merchant has access the option to cancel this transaction from their end, if PayPal has to Void this transaction we have to wait ** days. In future if you are charged for this transaction you can Dispute this with PayPal to get your money back.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*I have used Paypal for a very long time, but will not use PayPal in the future because apparently there is no actual consumer protection in place. I am confident that my credit card will not allow unauthorized charges and I do not authorize this charge.*Al*Anil***:** PM*Levana, I appreciate you being with us in business for so long, however let me help you understand that I can see that the status of your order is 'Pending'.

Also, I want to close my PayPal account.*I want a manager to call me.*Paypal is to protect customers from being ripped off. Obviously Paypal does not do that any longer.*AmazonPay will probably work much better.*Also, your phone line says a pending transaction can be cancelled online but that option does not exist.*Per banking regulations I have a right to close my account.*I want to close my Paypal account.*Hello? Are you still there? I need you to close my PayPal account.*I'm going to call and complain that you are not answering me.*Al*Anil***:** PM*Levana, I am very sorry to hear that you are making this decision, however there are certain rules and regulation which needs to be followed from time to time to safeguard customers money and details, let me run few security checks to help you close your account, if you insists, Please allow me *-* minutes.*Thank you for waiting.*My apologies for the delay.*LL*Levana Lott***:** PM*Yes.
