Weird Ebay buyer question

I'm posting this issue for my boyfriend since he doesn't have an AF account.

He sold a $600 camera lens on Ebay. 4 days after the auction ended his Chinese buyer had not paid yet and contacted him to tell him that the shipping was too expensive. My BF explained that he charges exactly what the USPS does and that international shipping is not cheap. 3 days later the buyer paid (including the amount for the international shipping) and informed him that my BF would be required to ship the item to his US address instead of the one in China that is verified on the Paypal account.
This is a really weird situation. The payment is on hold on Paypal and the buyer still has not provided his US address. It has been about 2 weeks.
What can he do?

Open a npb case. Plus he should only ship to the address on the pp payment. If they want a us shipping address your bf needs to cancel the payment and tell them to send with the us address.

Is he a new buyer or a smaller seller, I know I recently got hit with this. Ebay has a new buyer program set in place where the funds are put on hold until 21 days after the item is shipped and you have to pay for the shipping and after you pay they release the amount paid to ship the item from the held payment and you can get the money before 21 days if it is tracked and once it is delivered the release the full payment.

My BF has like 100 FB and the buyer has about 30. Other than that I'm not entirely sure what you're talking about.

What do you mean that the payment is "on hold"?

Is it an e-check? what does the feedback look like? I would be really weary of shipping to a different address, especially something so expensive. I also don't like that he says your bf is "required" to send the item to his US address. No, he's not required to do anything. I agree with Cram, I'd open up the NPB dispute. I'd personally just be too uncomfortable with the whole thing.

It's not an e-check. His feedback is all positive. I don't want him to ship to an unverified address either. But the guy won't even provide it anyway...So since the funds are pending, he can file an NPB? I'm kind of confused about what pending payment even means.

Have your bf call pp and explain what is going on.

Hilarious...so the US address that the buyer was asking to have it shipped to was the address of another seller he was buying from. He took so long to provide the address because he was waiting for their auction to end and for them to tell him their address. He wants my BF to ship the item to this other seller and then have that seller ship both items together to China. What a retard. Obviously my BF said no. I hope he doesn't get a neg from this because this guy is seriously a nut job.
