Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1609

post #24121 of 30496

While you can't fight the return if you take them, get ebay to get the defect removed (you will have to call) based on buyer's remorse.  I was letting my BS defects pile up, finally called last night and got almost all removed (can only do 4 per call).

Do you guys ever block users on account of rude/bizarre/accusatory messages ahead of any bid? One person is accusing me of padding the final cost of a pair of shell PTBs by adding $5 to ship cost. I don't see selling to this person ending well.

Tell him it's a handling charge, just like he'd pay anywhere else he shopped online.

I've only started to sell a few stuff on ebay recently and I've already got something along those lines.
Shirt is light yellow and he's claiming the shirt is white & it's missing collar stays (well it's a used shirt so...) to ask for refund + shipping on me.

What's the best course of action to deal with this? -.-

Thanks. He's telling me shipping these shoes should be $5 lower and that he'd be more inclined to bid if it were. It's like, a) these are heavy as hell; b) I'm obviously going to insure them and send priority; c) if you're bitching about $5 of perceived excessive shipping charge on a $600 pair of shoes, go away.

How much are you charging for the shipping/handling?

Large flat rate priority box, no handling charge. $17 something?

Sounds good to me. Add for insurance and signature, and your cost will be $17-18 or so. Keep in mind that PayPal and Ebay skim off some of what you charge for shipping.

This is where we post ebay user names to block, right?  

 

I have had more non payers in the last month than in the last year (I think I could be off by 1 or 2). 

 

Anyway, here they are: 

 

 

genes_hecto  (beat out a bunch of other bidders, then he sent me an email saying he would pay the next week. I responded and said okay since he emailed and told me.  I emailed him two days AFTER he said he would pay, and he responded and said he would pay immediately.  Then, nothing.  Did not pay, no more responses, opened case and nothing.  Fuck him.  Relisted item and got 20% less than his winning bid). 

 

 

tgaraev  (sent me a very good offer less than 10% below my Buy it Now price.  Then didn't pay.  I emailed him and he responded saying he was trying to get his account straightened out and would pay in 2 days. Then, nothing.  No more responses, opened case and no response. Relisted item and item and just accepted offer $30 less than his winning offer.

 

jorecino0  (ZERO feedback international buyer, did Buy it now when I had 21 watchers and 8 hours to go).  Then, nothing.  Opened case and never paid. Fuck him!)

So I messed up and now I'm not sure how to proceed.

 

I bought an antique Brigg umbrella on Ebay and it arrived today. The condition and everything looked as it did from the listing, so I went ahead and gave positive feedback.

 

Upon closer inspection, however, it appears to be an umbrella by S. Fox & Co, with a handle stamped Brigg, possibly a replacement at some time in the past.

 

Have I screwed myself as the buyer by having given positive feedback?

 

My gut says that I should contact the seller and explain what's going on. I don't want to deal with a return, and I don't particularly want to feel like I'm trying to extort a refund or discount from the seller, but I ordered a Brigg umbrella and got one from Fox. It may seem trifling, but for whatever reason I've always wanted an antique Brigg or SAB umbrella and I thought I'd gotten it.

You have not screwed yourself just because you left positive feedback.  I would email the seller and explain just like you did and see what they are willing to do.  You are not extorting anything.   You are just trying to get what you paid for.  The seller will appreciate the email first so they can attempt to work things out instead of a return request out of the blue.

I have a suit that it is NEW.  It is perfect and unworn.  As I was taking measurements I found the tags in the pockets.  Would it be too much of a stretch if I said it was new with tags even if I take a picture of them and disclose that they have been taken off the suit?   The pants have been hemmed. So, what I think happened is that the suit was brought to the tailor and hemmed and the tailor took the tags off and put them in the pocket.  

 

Should I just go with New Without tags and not try to oversell it?
