Never mind that I don't really wear cologne or smoke, so I'm not sure what this "scent" could be. But I pretty much have to refund him his money because he'll just file a claim with PayPal and they never side with the seller.


Not true.  I recently sold something on Audiogon ( I know its not ebay but we did use Paypal) and the buyer sat on the machine for a couple days and then sent me an e-mail stating that he didn't want it so instead of communicating his concerns to me and trying to work something out he just sent the unit back to me without any warning.  Long story short, I did bring a Paypal claim and they did side with me.  It took a little bit of work on my part sending the notes and shipping info and proving the item was exactly as described and all that but my point is the buyer does not always win.  You sold him something and he gave you favorable feedback.  He washed the garment and decided he didn't want it.  You don't need to do anything for him at this point.  If you are okay doing the work I wouldn't let the buyer get away with it.

Only to maintain top rated seller status.

Since he left positive feedback, you have a very good chance of winning the claim. Just fight it.

I've always gone along with a return policy on eBay, since it rarely comes up and when it does, it's often legit (i.e. item was damaged in transit). But now if you accept returns on eBay, the minimum period of time you can set the return window at is 14 days. It's absurd, and encourages nonsense like this.

Selling on eBay sounds like way more trouble than it is worth.

Depends on what you're selling, really. I would have bought a one-way plane ticket to San Francisco a long time ago specifically so I could throw myself off of the Golden Gate Bridge if I were forced to sell clothing more than just occasionally on eBay.

I'm fortunate that for the most part, the majority of eBay-related headaches for me over the years have been from the eBay side of things rather than the customer's.

Yes, it's amazing how much the success of paypal/ebay transactions depends on buyers not being total scumbags

I guess that also applies to, like, every other facet of life imaginable

ebay takes care of the buyers because, as long as they have a huge base of buyers, there will be sellers. They suck (paypal included).

That's always been the case, but a popular thought right now is that these latest changes are the first in many attempts by eBay to make it virtually impossible for its sellers to maintain the Top Rated Seller status (and subsequently, that desired 20% discount on fees). Needing to provide tracking information within one day of the sale for 90 percent of the seller's transactions is a tall, if not impossible request to fulfill for certain types of sellers.

This needs further explanation. I pay for and print my shipping labels online. As soon as the label is generated, the tracking information is available even if I don't ship the package for a few days. Ebay automatically fills out the shipping information for the transaction if you use the "print shipping label" button. Honestly though, saving 20% seller fees isn't worth being coerced into taking returns from stupid buyers.

That's true, but it's a pain for sellers who sell a decent amount on the site but have a "real" job or are out of town for a couple of days. I had to go out of town for a friend's wedding last month and was gone Thursday afternoon through Sunday night. I sold about 15 items in that span, and while everything went out Monday morning, I still took too long in eBay's eyes, because I didn't have tracking information uploaded within 24 hours of the sale.

Also consider the sellers who specialize in lighter items that can be shipped with a stamp. If they want to maintain their TRS status, they need to ship with something that comes with tracking of some sort. It's not much extra (probably a buck plus the mailer), but for the high-volume sellers, that might be enough to impact their profit margin.
