We Can Put a Man on the Moon but . . .

. . . ebay can't update current listings will a new PayPal address.

If you ever change your ISP and subsequently you PayPal address, try and do yourself a favor and be sure you have no current items selling on eBay. What happens is your new email/PayPal address once changed, is not retroactive for current listings. When those listings end, and people make a payment through eBay/PayPal via pay now, the funds end up in cyberspace and are unclaimed. I have had to email about 8 people and ask them to cancel their payment and use PayPal's "Send Money" feature. Simple right? Well that depends on the computer literacy level of your buyer.

Arghghh, this has been such a pain. If you didn't know thought I'd pass it along so you can avoid similar frustration.
