point taken...already told him i wasn't able to, but your added point makes even more sense.

The worst kind of feedback:

 


Positive? Yes... Unfortunately, I will lose sleep wondering what the fuck "extra" I put in the box. There are definite benefits to sober shipping.

I would have reacted the same way as you. There's no way I'm letting any eBay customer in my house, or going to their's. Maybe I'd meet them somewhere, but the guy has no feedback, so the situation is less than ideal.

When an item is returned because of a bad address what's the best course of action ebay wise?  Not a high value item, but shipping was $25 internationally.

Yeah, his eBay profile was made today and I said I could meet him in a public spot and he hasn't responded. I did block him from bidding because I don't want him having my home address. It just seems off to me. Generally my guy is right about weird stuff.

They said it can take up to 24 hours for negative feedback to show as removed, and some feedback removals update every Thursday - but I am surprised that I didn't have to go back and forth with customer service. They made the decision almost immediately after I explained what happened.

Now he has opened a return request for both items, claiming the measurements are "way off." lol8[1].gif This guy is a bumbling idiot. Yes, coincidentally the measurements are wrong (on two different sport coats, mind you) after eBay removes his negative feedback. In 3.5 years I think I have only had 1 buyer claim my measurements were wrong and return something, only to find out upon receiving the return that he didn't know how to measure.

I may have missed it, but can you share this one's handle so the blocking can begin?

Help please: Woke up this morning to a item not received case. I checked the tracking and saw it had been delivered. 'Slam dunk', I think. I called and they escalated the case. I get put on hold and the eBay rep says that they can't close it. It says delivered but the delivery city and the address city aren't the same. The buyer's address was on the cusp of a city so while his address is technically in a suburb, it's showing delivered to the main city. I said that the zip codes matched and that should be more accurate. The eBay rep didn't agree so I called back a while later and they wouldn't allow me to escalate it. I'm waiting on a call back from USPS to see if they can figure out the exact address it was delivered to. Anything else I can do? 

 

Also, I messaged the buyer first. I looked up the address and it appeared to be a UPS store. I asked if he had checked with them but I haven't heard back yet.

That sounds really sketchy, I'd be interested to see if USPS has an answer for you.  Usually the zip code overrides dictates where things go.

@My Main Man If you shipped to the address provided in PayPal and have a USPS tracking number showing delivered, regardless of where USPS delivered it, you've done enough to be covered by PayPal Seller Protection regardless of the outcome.

Update: after talking with USPS, they confirmed the package was delivered to the correct address. I called eBay back and they escalated and closed in my favor. Lesson learned? If at first you don't succeed (with getting a case closed in your favor), try try again.

also, I'll just leave this here. up to you if you want to block or not: Toolhaus for the buyer

Thanks. I like your two-account style (like authors adopting a pseudonym for a different genre), but have to admit, a loyal following kind of scares me. foo.gif
