You stated … ‘every third party store here has sold GPUs they don’t have.’
I asked for details of companies withrawing funds prior to shipping … not to be confused with companies that have ‘pending’ in your Paypal account.
Read this from PayPal … Seems I need to repeat …
A pre-sale item is advertised for sale before the seller actually has the item. Often, these items are sold before they are available to the general public.
A seller might use the money from the pre-sale of an item to purchase the item.
PayPal permits pre-sales on a limited basis as long as the seller:
Guarantees shipment within 20 days from the date of purchase.
Clearly identifies the item as a pre-sale.
Provides proof, if needed, that they can successfully deliver the product (supplier information, purchase invoices, shipping information, or delivery confirmation).
