Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 141

post #2101 of 18199

 

While I appreciate her paying top dollar for this and leaving me prompt feedback, I am a bit worried that she has apparently purchased it as a surprise gift for someone else. I hope he wanted an outdated, no-name corduroy suit. Of course, if he is a "good" boyfriend, he will pretend to love it....right?

Then here's hoping Upper Deck can verify...

3. Buyer places item on watch with the mindset "I will purchase this one day if it does not sell and I have the money to do so".

4. Buyer brand whoring, in his mind he wants something from one of the big brands. That item you listed works for him but he will hang around until something better comes along.

I've had a Drakes Shepherd's Check tie on there for damn near 3 months and it's had over 20 watchers since the first couple of weeks it was listed. Bastards. I've contemplated just keeping the damn things.

Shipping to Germany??? Never shipped outside USA, but may ship a jacket to Germany? The buyer will pay cost and asked that I use USPS. Good idea or not?

Just use USPS 1st Class Registered or USPS Express mail and you should be OK

I leave feedback once the buyer does. We seem to be at an impasse nest.gif Lazy buyers not leaving me feedback annoys me, so I won't give them any either.

Ebay does not let you leave anything but positive feedback for a buyer so the only thing you can leave him feedback on is how quick he pays and once he does that, he gets feedback. nest.gif

WTF with PayPal only allowing me to refund the FULL amount of an ebay purchase? The buyer and I agreed the return would not include original shipping and would be subject to a 5% restocking fee. But EFFING PAYPAL will only let me do a full refund! And I can't even just do a separate payment refund, because that will still leave me holding the bag on the EFFING PayPal fees. Mother freakers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Send the money back to the buyer via his email address. Click on goods / merchandise so Paypal records would indicate it is an off the record transaction when in actual fact it is your "refund" to the buyer. Buyer unlikely to suspect anything. Wait 44 days and then hit the Buyer with a SNAD saying buyer did not send you a product. Paypal refund you and buyer is out of pocket and out of the item he sent back to you. You sell that item on eBay and have effectively doubled your money.

There is a way now for a seller to get his own back by pretending to be a buyer devil.gif

Minus the federal (cross state lines) fraud involved not a bad idea.

Turns out, he used some kind of Ebay bucks to buy the item. So PayPal wouldn't let me do a partial (presumably because it could result in him actually getting cash out of what should be a coupon -- creative buyers could scam the system. Either way, PayPal (after a 30 minute hold) figured out a workaround: I paid the buyer via payment (as Klobber suggests), then the PayPal dude looked at previous transactions and credited me the PayPal fees on several of those, adding up to the prorated amount I was owed back. Net, the universe is as it should be, but the process troubles me a little.

Go ahead and PM Brianpore, he'll need your email (possibly only gmail, not sure) address in order to give you access!

My pleasure! Good luck on working it out...it's terrifying to see something like that. I recently had a bidder from the Ukraine (a country I just allowed to bid on my things again) with 14 feedbacks...5 of them said "scumbag didn't pay!" or "tried to scam me!"

I'll be back here if I run into issues other than a non-paying bidder biggrin.gif

A buyer from Ukraine won 4 of my auctions in early Jan, paid for 1 item 22 days later. I can hardly wait until tomorrow when I can close the unpaid item cases and know that he is effectively blackballed by most experienced sellers.
