Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1626post #24376 of 2997811/7/15 at 6:33pmpost #24377 of 2997811/7/15 at 11:54pmQuote:Originally Posted by idfnl
Endless shipping problems.
One piece of advice I got from the manager of the post office I have adopted is to put a piece of clear tape over the address. Apparently many packages end up in these giant rooms because the labels have been worn/damaged. It seems to have helped. I had a rash of lost mail over the last 2 months and all year, actually. The rate of loss has subsided recently.
I gave up taping long ago, and now purchase 7"x5" clear packing envelopes (or 10" x 7" and cut them in half/tape the one cut edge). Labels don't seem to come off and are are protected from water.post #24378 of 2997811/8/15 at 5:27ampost #24379 of 2997811/8/15 at 6:32amQuote:Originally Posted by Nobleprofessor
It is either the same person or two people working together. I'm sure he/they are just trying to work you to get the best price. They shouldn't be doing it this way. However, if the higher offer is what you would sell it for if someone else offered it to you, then why does it matter? Just take the good offer. They may think they got the best of you with their trickery, but if you get the price you wanted, sell it.
Thanks guys. I sent them both notes asking (essentially) if they were bidding in tandem. One immediately retracted the bid and the 2nd person bit on my counter. So I shipped yesterday.
Hopefully, they get the jacket and like it.post #24380 of 2997811/8/15 at 6:35ampost #24381 of 2997811/8/15 at 1:35pmpost #24382 of 2997811/8/15 at 1:44pmQuote:Originally Posted by jamesmkeart
So I won a dispute against this guy but he did ship it and I received it. Since eBay closed the return I'm on the hook for fees so I offered him his money back minus fees and shipping cost. He's mad. Am I being reasonable? Should I just return the item to sender and ignore everything else. He screwed up so I don't feel I should lose money and technically I don't owe him anything.
Can you rewrite that in plain English and describe the backstory?post #24383 of 2997811/8/15 at 1:50pm
Yeah, sorry. Guy bought a shirt. Forced a return saying it was the wrong size. He didnt ship it back fast enough so eBay closed the dispute in my favor. A day later I got the item back. So now that it's closed I dont have to give him a refund. I'm trying to be cool so I offered the guy everything back except the fees I'm paying and the shipping. He's mad about that offer.
Do I just send him the item back or should I be paying him everything? I'm cool not profiting but I don't want to lose moneypost #24384 of 2997811/8/15 at 2:01pmpost #24385 of 2997811/8/15 at 2:34pmQuote:
And pray that he doesn't have good friends with eBay accounts who have nothing better to do than fuck up your account. People can be creatively vindictive if they feel that they have been unjustly wronged.post #24386 of 2997811/8/15 at 2:40pmpost #24387 of 2997811/8/15 at 2:58pmQuote:
I'll state my opinion again. If Ebay closed the case against him, I would ignore him; and report any threatening messages to Ebay. I had a case similar to this back in January, which was the reason I finally started using a mailing center service for my incoming mail (and as a return address).
In my case, the buyer claimed something was not as described six weeks after receiving the item and leaving positive feedback. I denied the return request, and he got all sorts of belligerent in his messages. I blocked him but lost sleep for a few nights worrying that he might come by my house (he was about 90 miles away). Nothing else negative ever came out of that interaction.post #24388 of 2997811/8/15 at 6:40pm
Here's an odd one: person buys a pre-owned shirt for ~ $150, opens a return as "wrong item shipped" with very angry sounding notes about how it's not the right plaid (Burberry nova with lots of pictures, so they knew what pattern they were getting), and how it doesn't fit (accurate measurements were provided). Obviously they didn't look / read / whatever, but I just take returns rather than fight them because I don't need the stress. Refunded the guy tonight, and he says he's coming through my area and wants to meet up for coffee. Part of me is like ... "that's a bit odd" ... and another part of me is like "dude buys used shirts for $150 - maybe I should know this guy" ... but another part is all "but he's bigger than a size XXL and is willing to fib to make a return, and do I want to associate with a big fibber?". Just weird in my opinion - maybe I'm jaded.post #24389 of 2997811/8/15 at 6:47pmQuote:Originally Posted by TheNeedMachine

There's no way I would meet someone in person who sent angry messages.post #24390 of 2997811/8/15 at 7:00pmI'd be intrigued. If it's in public during the day you should be fine if he's angry. I'm switching to just talking returns since eBay will just force them if someone says it's wrong. Then you have to prove you sent the right items and it's a lot of work. If you just do hassle free you can at least charge a restock fee.
