Would I be wrong giving the guy bad/neutral feedback? I'm just so tired of all these Ebay sellers, I've had 4 consecutive sellers screw up my orders now.

Did you contact the seller at all during that period? Pretty sure you forfeited your right to an item not received case by waiting over 14 days to make a claim.

+1 did you follow up in that 3 week time? I follow up after 3 days if I dont see the item shipped. At least you would have been in contact with them to find out what is going on.

I'm fairly certain you have 45 days to open the case.

Yup, you're correct.
Quote:
Item Not Received - You bought something, but didn't receive it. Wait at least 7 days from the transaction date to give your seller enough time to ship the item.
Significantly Not as Described - You received an item but it was significantly different from the seller's original description.
You have 45 days from the date you purchased an item to open a dispute. If you choose to escalate your dispute to a PayPal claim, you need to do so within 20 days of opening the dispute. Otherwise it will be closed automatically.

I thought the time period was shorter on item not received than SNAD for some reason.

Wes, have you ever seen a gift payment like this? I called paypal (and asked Brian smile.gif), but it looks strange to me. They said it was a personal payment though.

post #1550 of 14118

Yes, all the time from the guys here on SF. I assume you are referring to the $0.00 fee? When it is sent as a personal payment / gift there is no fee. I think there is also an option for the sender to pick up the fee. One of my regular buyers in Indonesia does this all the time. If it was an ebay item or purchase from someone you don't know or trust, realize it does not qualify for paypal protections. However, I think their buyer protections are also forfeited. A gift is a gift.

No, the seller protection part at the top and box about the address look off to me. It normally looks like this:

Yeah, I haven't seen one quite like that...at least not in the last 6 months. 

post #1553 of 14118
Thanks. I've just never seen one like that before. All of mine look like the second one posted. The first appears a lot more like a normal transaction from an account without any personal info filled out.
post #1554 of 14118

That's what I was thinking, but I didn't think you could do that. The normal ones say "OK to ship" it's weird. I suppose you at least know who it is from. If paypal said it is legit, I would go with it.

I don't really have a choice I guess. I just wish I could feel safe when dealing with paypal. I'll probably call once more to verify, but not a lot else to do but ship and pray. Thanks.

Was it an eBay transaction? If so it should be covered on that end as long as you ship to that address. I mean, they can pay with any method they want and still be covered, right? Just wont have the extra paypal coverage.

Sold here on B&S to 0 post member.

Ahhh I see. Well, I have one of those transactions going on right now too, SF user, 10 posts. Asked to ship to an unverified address in the US to save from shipping to Canada. I am just going to trust him. 

 

Good luck.

Regarding the shoes: 

 

I bought(BIN) the pair Friday 23rd, got an shipping invoice two days later and paid. 

 

Assumed he had shipped the pair out, but a week later I got a mail from him asking If I wanted a refund because supposedly shipping takes a long time right now, using Priority Mail. 

I tell him to ship them out ASAP. 

 

Another week goes, I ask if he's shipped 'em out, and he says yes giving me a tracking number (on the 8th). 

Check out the tracking number, says USPS have received an electronic notification (or something)...check out the tracking today, and the package was picked up first yesterday.

 

I asked him to ship the shoes to another address (since I'll be on vacation for christmas), but he said he couldn't do that due to Ebay rules.

IF the shoes arrive here after I'm gone, they will automatically be returned to him after two weeks, since I obviously can't pick them up while being on a vacation.

Where do you live? If in the US you request that the Postal Service hold your mail.
