Check this out as proof. Odd but true.

 

These were started at approximately the same time last Thursday.

 

No-name super dated tweed 3 piece.

Hello ... The shirt finally got here today and I am disappointed. I like the shirt BUT cannot get it on. I usually buy LLBean 2xltall and they fit perfectly. This one has okay sleeves but I cannot even button it. It seems this shirt was made China and has Ceylon on the attached tag.

I read your no return policy, but I see it is covered by eBay Buyer Protection. Do you want it returned for $51 credit or shall I make a claim?

Best regards,

How do I even respond?

"Yes, please open the case, you fat fuck"

That's the only reasonable response coming to mind.

*edit* I do actually need help on this. On one hand I want to tell him that the buyer protection program doesn't cover items that don't fit and that he should be more careful when buying final sale clothing online, especially in a size that isn't his own. On the other, I just want him to open the case saying that the item didn't fit so hopefully I'll get an easy win.

I'd offer him one dollar for every pound he loses until he can fit in the shirt.

 

Before anyone thinks I am being judgemental, please note I wear a 2XL

I would call ebay and talk with a CS rep about what would happen if he opens a case for an item not fitting. Will he get the money back, will Buyer Protection kick in, etc etc. Gut says you're going to have to send him a refund either way so just take it back and not worry about getting dinged with a neg feedback.

 

Might help but also putting a quick chest measurement in the listing as well.

I almost always measure, but I made the assumption that people who buy True Religion are too stupid to know/care about their measurements anyways. Also in the past, seen in this thread where putting more information just gives them more things to pick apart for item not as described. What's the point of calling, just to get it documented? I can't believe that someone would hop on ebay, buy an item in the wrong fucking size, then get upset and feel entitled to a refund when it didn't fit. Total bullshit and ebay needs to stop catering to these dimwits.

The best part about this shit... the guy has his organization's name in his ebay username. *blahblahblah*
This has to be some kind of joke.

That makes me angry just reading that email. Kudos to you for not telling him to fk himself. Can you politely explain that buyer protection isn't intended to cover fit issues? How does buyer protection work in a case like this?
post #2258 of 16774
You can tell him that he's being real Socialist right now...

Dosent matter whats its "intended" to cover, it matters what if covers, hence my reason for suggesting to call. Not to document it, that's already done via the ebay message he sent you. It is to talk with someone and find out what will happen if he opens a case. Will you have a shot at winning or not. Then you can make an educated decision what to tell him to do. If you have no shot at winning then there is no point to be confrontational. If you have a shot at winning then its up to you if you want to risk a neg feedback over $50 for a shirt you feel if worth $100+ and might be better of reselling.

This is one of the funniest threads I've read in a while!

Spoo, offer the buyer a factory tour of the laboutin workshop as well as an introduction to the factory foreman. Wonder how buyer would respond to that.

Re True Religion: he's literally socializing his buyers remorse! Really ironic.
post #2261 of 16774

lol8[1].gif after reading the link real quick, I would be soo tempted to ask if he felt asking for a return of a correctly described item, but abusing the buyer protection policy created by ebay was a very capitalistic way to do business. Very ironic.

post #2262 of 16774
see if you can send a message to him that gets him to admit that the shirt is correctly tagged. the last time a buyer filed a claim against me because the item didn't fit, I won because he started out his first message to me with "the shoes just arrived and are as described" and then made up some theory about how they must have been tagged incorrectly at the factory because they didn't fit.
post #2263 of 16774
Sounds like solid advice, just sent him a cheery kiss ass message to bait him. I know it's not spoo level problems, but this shit still rubs me the wrong way.
post #2264 of 16774
In all my listings, on ebay's listings page I go through and give the weight of the package, check yes that I ship, select the services available, and use the "calculate price by weight" or whatever.

Yet, I get inundated with "How much to ship to Germany/Ukraine/Japan/Thailand/Canada etc etc. The past few time I've listed it's been on over 1 in 4 listings.

Is there some reason ebay isn't showing the price? or are they just not seeing it. How can I stop all these stupid questions?
post #2265 of 16774
And it continues...

Thank you for expressing your concern about the item. What is the size tagged on the shirt? This item is indeed covered by buyer protection, and I will do my best to assist you.

Hello ... Per your title line and the tag in the shirt "Tagged Size XXXL"

I never bought TRUE RELIGION and thought it to be a premier brand. Apparently shirts from Asia are not the same as the USA. This shirt is WAY too small for me, but XXXL may work for a smaller Asian. XXXL in the USA is not the same. I can return it. I sell on ebay too and dislike the occasional unhappy person who wants to "work' the Buyer Protection Plan. Best bet is a refund after I send it back.
Thank you and best regards,

Loosely translated: "I sell shit too, and I hate when buyer's try to game the system. By the way, I'm going to game the system so you better take a return because 'MURICA where I'm free to be fat, unlike them skinny Asians."

Where the pictures of two separate tags both displaying the word CHINA not clear enough? Sounds like he really just has remorse for supporting overseas goods (because he's a capitalist and not some socialist liberal pansy of course).

*edit again* Any suggestions for replies welcomed. Thinking about just telling him that I'm unfamiliar with the return process and would like to follow official channels so would prefer if he could open the case. I'll fight this one, Brian, don't like being extorted like this even if I risk my 100% feedback. $50 was fair market value for the shirt, so doubt I could score a major win by relisting anyways.
