Feedback on an Ebay seller - Page 3

post #31 of 47
Reading my post back it sounds like gobbledigook,what I meant was zjpj could have asked me the cost of postage before he commited by bidding.

Once I have a bid I can click "sell to high bidder" and the item is sold.What would zjpj have done then I wonder?

I know I will get blasted here because he is your friend and I am a new comer but I wanted to put my side of the story.
He has emailed me from the outset saying I need medical attention just because I asked for a reason why he retracted which I found insulting.
Look at his feedback he seems to make a habit of retracting,1 a month on average,I have retracted once in 3 years and that was on his shoes.

My feedback is above for all to see spread over 3 years,I would draw your attention to "perfect gentleman" "best transaction of the year" etc...
So please don't let this guy pull the wool over your eyes.
More lies, though I can't say I'm surprised - like my having "bid on your items before."

My fellow SF members: I did say, last night, and not "from the outset" that he "needed medical attention" after having received half a dozen unprovoked harassing emails. The sum total of my communication to this individual has been:

On Sunday, May 14, 2006 10:43 PM:

No shyness, shipping is just too much.
Good day,
zj


And, in response to yet another email, this time stating, "A fellow ebayer has informed me you have been telling tales,however reading the posts you don't seem to be getting it all your own way. You tosser!!!" I wrote, on Tuesday, May 16, 2006 1:26 AM:

My advice is that you seek medical help, and quick.

And that has been my entire communication to him.

Yet again, unlike the other party, I am simply putting the entire story out there for you to be informed consumers. With these facts, if you still think he is a "perfect gentleman," I suggest you bid on his items.

I think the lady doth protest too much.

Why have you dragged all these good people into your petty dispute?
You still have not answered how much you expect shipping to cost from the UK?Also why you have 6 bid retractions in 6 months,you sound like a serial offender to me yet when somebody like myself takes exception you reply with insults.

I don't really understand why bid retraction is so evil in this case, expecially if it is done 15 minutes after placing the bid. Sounds like a brief moment of impulsiveness, and then the reality that the deal wasn't so great set in. So what?

Did the retraction harm your ability to sell the shoes to another bidder? If not, then it sounds as if it is time to move on with your life

Don't patronise me.I am not the one who put it in the public domain for people I have never spoken to or met to have pot shots at me.

I did "move on" then I found out this little community were discussing me behind my back.
As I said earlier I know I am not going to get any joy here I just wanted to put my point across.My feedback is impeccable and my conscience is clear.
But going back to bid retractions,when someone bids they are already commiting to buy because the second the bid is placed I can sell to them.
post #36 of 47
I buy and sell on ebay.

Retractions are a minor drag. I have experienced them as seller. But I don't try to change anyone's mind after they have retracted their bid.

I have not yet retracted a bid myself.

I have not bought or sold with bebmak. I have bought a pair of shoes from z, as it happens. I picked them up in person so there was no shipping charge at issue.

But this thread is tiresome.

bebmak, when you own a store and someone returns something, you can't spend the rest of your life harassing them and stalking them at their house, no matter how illogical the return was. Yes it might have been annoying and you would rather they had never set foot in the store, but you have a store to run and a good businessperson will put their energies towards the store. I would understand if you just wanted to clear your name if you were concerned that people on this forum would shy away from your auctions, but you don't seem interested in that. You just want to play a name calling game. That's a big turnoff. I won't be buying from your auctions for this reason. Your shipping prices are totally fair however.
post #38 of 47
Was this a regular auction, buy it now, or buy it now or best offer? If it's either of the latter two, that does change things.

Another lie, I have emailed him twice in my entire life (the ones I already posted above). He keeps emailing harassing emails to me (anybody who wants, feel free to PM me your email and I will forward all of them to you if you desire).

As far as I'm considered, not only is this matter closed, but I wish there had never been a "matter" in the first place. If you think the matter is closed, please stop emailing me. Thank you.

Let's put this thread to rest.

as few of you know, i sell shoes on ebay too,
one time i had a shoe that i bought at a premium (most of my shoes are) and was being bidded up steadily 40, 45, 50, etc. over a course of a couple of days.
within the last few days, someone bidded 250 dollars on it, a half hour later, asked me if he could retract it, i said it is up to him. but he waited to retract on the last day and when he did, the bid went back down to the next amount which was around 60 dollars and never was bidded upon again.
the fellow who bid 250 had a very small feedback, he was new and i understood he still has yet to learn about the policies and subtle courtesies.

but his bid and then retraction cost me a bundle on that shoe, all potential bidders afraid that this was me or some ploy, but what could i do?

i just said, "great" and then hoped that wont happen again (amongst other bad selling experiences as well).

nothing to do with the thread, just saw the subject of ebay follies and posted my own heartbreak.

Maybe I am speaking out of turn but why has bebmak been banned when it seems all he did was defend himself,sometimes I don't really understand all the bannings.
Is it because the accuser was a senior member and the defendent was new?

I don't think you're speaking out of turn and are entitled to know. bebmak has now begun sending me threats of bodily harm, both via email and Styleforum's PM system. This is, as you can imagine, not tolerated under Styleforum regulations.

That's the problem with the Internet. An ocean is no longer enough to keep the nuts away.
post #45 of 47
In that case we should get together and kick this guys arse!
(Only joking,moderators)
