Honestly I think something is up.  I'd call both eBay and PayPal.  You didn't get scammed out of any $, if you bought on eBay and paid via PayPal - they did.  You'll get your money back if there's an issue - that's part of the ~12% cut they take.

 

 

It's not uncommon for gift cards to sell for at, or above, face value...I've seen it mostly on iTunes cards (buyers not in the US mostly) - haven't figured out the why, but they do.

 

 

DanM might be able to "request seller information", which will be emailed to him, and the seller will get the same information about DanM in return (name, address, email, and phone #, last time I did it).

Yeah, two years seems like a little much time to put into a con, but I could see somebody jumping on an opportunity.  I did request seller information, but haven't received anything yet.  Wondering how long that process takes.

Yeah I think anyone with 6+ months on ebay who developed a drug habit, faced foreclosure, or otherwise needed cash could do the same...if that's the case. Either way you're OK thru eBay and paypal, thankfully.
The info request took minutes last time I did it. Odd.

We did have Horseshoe Casino open in town about a year ago...

If you really have an issue or are worried, just call ebay. They are usually pretty helpful IMO. We can all debate it but they can actually help you.

Question about invoices

 

 

If I have an item that I listed last month or even the month prior and it doesn't sell (BINOBO), am I going to pay the listing fee and other fees (int'l UK listing, Gallery Plus, etc) every month ?

 

I ask this because I AM getting billed every month.  =/

Hey guys, I have something that could develop into a problem.... I wouldn't normally be worried but the guy is being very rude and I have a feeling he might leave negative feedback. Basically, USPS says his package was delivered this morning. He claims it wasn't. He is telling me to sort it out "immediately". I've called USPS, they said it was delivered, and suggested I call his local post office, which they were unable to connect me to, and I cannot find the number to. I suggested that the buyer call the post office, to which he quite haughtily replied that since I was the seller, it was on me to figure it out and not him. "Please get on it immediately".

What should I do? Thanks in advance!

Contact eBay and let them know what is going on ASAP. You've done your part. You can of course attempt to continue to help him, but he's making unreasonable demands, and doing so rudely. eBay should hear about it, and you want to be the one to tell them, not him.

Also, if you have his address, it shouldn't be too hard to find out which Post Office is his local and get their number from the PO customer service. Although, at the same time it shouldn't be all that easy either.

Thanks dude. I'll call eBay first, then see about tracking down that number. I'll let you guys know if anything crazy happens haha.

iirc, you're also no longer on the hook if the package is marked delivered. Nice of you and could possibly foster repeat customer if you help out, but I don't believe you are obligated.

This. As a buyer I had a package marked as delivered, but tracking showed it delivered to a town 7 hours away. I contacted seller (and Post Office) and seller basically replied "It says delivered, so my job is done."

I know he was right because of this thread. But I also know that good sellers wouldn't just brush me off after having spent almost $400 with them. HD he been a frequent seller, I would have been less inclined to do business with him again, because he was only willng to do the minimum work required.

I'd really like to step up my e-thrifting game because I just can't get out to stores with my normal work schedule and a baby at home.  However, I end up sitting at my PC 2-3 hours per night!  I've started saving some searches in ebay, but are there any 3rd party sites or software that people use for searching and research?

Beginning to think winning this game revolves around ties.
