Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1662

post #24916 of 30496

This conversation made me Google this:

http://www.gentlemansgazette.com/white-tie-do-dont-dress-code-met-ball/

I can't imagine when I would be required to be in white tie.  I do like Tom Ford's outfit.

Nope, but I know the new concertmaster of his orchestra. (Or at least what I think is his orchestra based on a few minutes of stalking. Maybe it's not his orchestra, but definitely know the new concertmaster of an orchestra mentioned in one of his posts.)

Between lowballing, millions of messages asking if I'll go lower, millions of other messages telling me why it's not worth what I have it listed for, the messages being illiterate, scamming, etc.

@Coxsackie is one of the very few CM posters i actually consider well dressed.  but that's my opinion.

 

@Koala-T also is among them.

 

Carry on.....

I could use some help from the pros on this one...

Customer wants to return an item (obv. I don't accept returns) claiming that it doesn't fit and that I did not specify that it was slim fit.

I included a chest measurement in my description and a picture of the tag that clearly reads SLIM FIT

What is my next step? Should I call eBay immediately? I have tried to "fight" things like this in the past and have always lost. The last time I called eBay and they told me "don't do anything, just wait." The case was then decided in the buyer's favor in fifteen minutes cloud.gif

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

My history is that ebay will force you to return the item. Then they say you have 48 hours to prove to ebay the item is as you listed it. Not sure how that part goes.

Being that it was tagged "Slim Fit" I'm assuming this is a shirt, but I guess it could be a jacket as well.

 

I also state I don't accept returns, as a deterrent, but 9 out of 10 times if someone asks I'll still accept it. Thankfully, knock on wood, this doesn't happen to me much, but I don't think its worth the time and hassle to fight someone who wants a return, risk them leaving negative feedback, then having to hassle with eBay to have said feedback removed, if they will remove it at all. Especially if this is just a shirt, which typically don't have the biggest profit margins to begin with. If its not a ton of money, just issue the refund, make them pay return shipping, and resell it.

This should be a pretty cut-and-dry case of buyer's remorse as the real reason for the return request.

 

Your pictures are part of the item description. If you clearly show the "large slim" tag, and the buyer didn't see that, it's his problem.

 

Yes, you should state in the description as well that it is a slim fit, but Ebay should side with you on this one. Call them.

Calling is a great idea. When this happened to me ebay said they had no way to verify whether or not the buyer is lying. So the process is to return it and make the seller prove it. They told me this is because the seller would know.

That's if the buyer started a defect claim. If they just asked for a return you can say no and you should be able to get any neg feedback removed.
