Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today.

If the item is in your Purchase history, note the date of the purchase. Log into your Paypal account and locate the payment. I have no idea why your seller wants an "order number". I have been selling for over 15 years and I only use item numbers. Give your seller whatever numbers you see in the Paypal payment.

I am sorry but I don’t understand what you are telling me I do not have a PayPal account that I know of and I could not address it if U did. Your explanation will have to assume that I know nothing of this form of transaction and take a more simplistic form

How? All I get is refer to you

I fear that I cannot give a high rating to your request because I have paid out a sum of money and have received zero aid. I am currently seeking help from the supplier to obtain some assistance. It is not their responsibility but I will not be any worse off than I currently am
I cannot rate your service because the person I dealt with made the assumption that I was familiar with the system. A common fault but ultimately I did not get what I wanted

As you were unable to assist me in any way,am I now entitled to a refund of the second demand for a payment?
I will be available Monday morning.
