We don't have hyperinflation in this country yet (no thanks to Obamer!), so go ahead and pay me three days later.

Wish I could find the message, but I had a similar thing where the buyer kept using the term "cash".

You didn't sell a couple pairs of shoes to someone this morning using that line did you? :embar:

What about "do you guarantee authenticity?" for this suit CANALI Recent Brown Label Blue Pinstripe Peak Lapel SUIT Jacket Pants 42 44 R

 

Maybe it's just me, but if you can't tell from my photos this suit is authentic and need reassurance you shouldn't be bidding on it. Strongly debated blocking him as I find more times then not, people who last lots of questions are very picky and I have more issues with.

This is so true, here & on eBay.

I actually recently implemented a 100% second chance/forgiveness endeavor and cleared my entire blocked buyer cache. 

 

I have since added 5 :D

He's a local, and has bought from me as well - saw him on the block list and removed him from mine.  Had 1 or 2 others who must have had old / bad transactions who asked why they were blocked from buying & bidding - checked their feedback and all was good, so removed.  Not sure how well the older entries on the SF block list serve us.

I guess I am a big boy now. Got my first return (and I don't accept returns). Listed a tie with water damage, fading, etc. It was an Isaia 7 fold so I figured maybe there was enough silk that someone might want to repurpose it as a pocket square or whatever. Clearly mentioned that the fading should be assumed to be permanent. Got the tie back in the mail today with a very stern letter from the buyer. He bought it thinking he could get his drycleaner to work his magic, but he couldn't. His point is that I should've been more explicit and said 'dirty' etc. in the listing.

 

I want to refund him totally, including return shipping, but paypal can only refund 100%, not more than that (so should I just send him the return shipping cost as a separate payment?). Already refunded him. He's willing to mutually cancel the transaction when he gets the refund. Will I auto-defect myself if I open a 'cancel transaction' case? And should I first refund him first before opening it?

 

Questions, questions.

 

Thanks. Goddamnit!

very generous, and also, you may be insane :lol:

I seem to use my block list as a means of revenge, instead of verbally taking it out on the buyer in messages.  I bite my tongue when in a confrontation, and sting them when they turn their back.  But seriously, all added have been legitimate.

You can manually send him some extra funds to his paypal email address if you so choose to.

Make sure to choose the  "buyer returning item for refund" in the cancel transaction and you will be fine. You only get defects for "seller issues" like out of stock or OTHER. Never choose other, always choose "buyer return for refund" or buyer changed mind, etc
