Why did you block 0,01 € on my PayPal account?
To avoid fraud and verify that your profile is real, Vintag temporarily blocks 0,01 € (one Euro cent) when you connect your PayPal account to Vintag.

How can I protect myself on Vintag?

Send the item to the address we send you by Email and that you can see on PayPal. Shipping to another address ( even if asked by the seller) will make you lose the benefit of PayPal seller protection. If the buyer insists, you will need to reimburse him and ask for him/her to change his/her address and re-make the purchase.
