Thank you. I think I will refund them the difference. They bought with BIN, do there wasn't time for me to send them an invoice

Out of curiosity, how much did the vest sell for? Passed on 2 cardigans and a vest bout 3 weeks ago lol.
post #27723 of 30473

33 shipped for the vest and 53 shipped for the jacket.

Yeah, went with my gut with them, picked up dirt cheap, they looked cool. There is certainly a market.
post #27726 of 30473
The few I saw were at $8 a piece, so my gut was ignored lol.

Here's one. Sold a Hermes scarf TWO months ago and it was smooth. Offer received, money sent and scarf mailed out. Buyer gets the item on MARCH 15th and life went on. almost two months later I get this:

"Hello! I got a scarf. Very disappointed in the description does not indicate that the wearing of the scarf and has traces of washing. You lied to me."

In the description I stated I wasn't sure if it had been used. I said I wasn't sure if it was but it looks like it's in great condition. Never said it was new or never used. This person gets the item, says nothing for two months, then sends this message that's not even proper English out of nowhere. Am I gonna get screwed on this?

Don't think they open a eBay case, as they're outside of the time frame. They could, however, still go through PayPal.

Just received this email from some fine specimen of a human being:

Her Ebay use name is  praaugie for the Blocked Bidder list.

 

Just curious about this bidding history on this item. 

It shows up on my side going from initial $49.00 list weeks ago to one other bid by one "other" bidder who magically bid at .55 below my max just below close, pushing me to win at my absolute max bid at the absolute last minute. What a miracle! This looks very odd to me at best, and I'm going to ask that it be looked into, I'm sure you will understand. No other bids between initial listing and one .55 below my max just before close. So coincidental!  
If this is not a coincidence, reverse the purchase immediately. Otherwise, eBay is being notified.

1. So the bidding didn't go above the max he was willing to spend. 2. If anyone other than him and ebay could have known his maximum bid, eBay would have a serious problem. Without outbidding him then retracting the bids, which he would be able to see, there is no way it could have been surmised. It's that simple, eBay will tell him something along those lines.  This is pre-buyer's remorse.  Bidder's remorse.

It's ridiculous, and I'm furious that she tries to imply that I somehow cheated her.  I bent over backwards for her before the bidding ended.  I even told her at one point NOT to bid on it, because I could foresee trouble coming:

That is certainly true. But you could tell me what the insole measures, heel to toe. If it's clearly not a "fit" or close to the 9" I mentioned, then I withdraw my bid. If, however, the insole of your boots is 9" or slightly longer (within a quarter of an inch) I would still be interested. Please advise if you would be so kind. If not, please cancel my bid. 
 


Re: praaugie has sent a question about item xxxxxxxxx, ending on May-06-16 16:30:57 PDT - ARIAT Women's Devon Pro VX Zip Paddock Boot - size 7 B black leather boots shoes

Please be advised, as my listing states, that I do not accept returns. 
If you do not know which size to buy for your niece, I suggest that you not bid on them. I certainly have no way of advising you on what size boots your niece wears.

I'm trying to buy boots for my niece (12 yrs) who lives in Singapore. Her foot measures nine inches from heel to toe. I put in a bid on these based on a sizing chart. If these will not be a good fit for her (too big or too small) making them unsafe for her to use in a beginner class, would you please let me know? If they will not fit her properly (assume she would wear socks but not incredibly thick ones!) perhaps you would let me out of my bid. But if the measurements work, that's great! 

Many thanks, Praaugie
 

praaugie:

I'm buying these for my niece who is coming over for the summer from Singapore. Her father's best translation of her shoe size is that her feet measure 9" (nine inches) from heel to toe. Does this translate to a size 7 and would these fit her? If so, I'll bid!!! Thank you, Desperate Auntie

Sold a jacket listed in used condition 8/10, one of J Crew's 'broken in' styles (mentioned in the listing and 'broken in' is on the tag). Buyer complained that 'the jacket looks worn rather than just broken in.' Wut.

post #27733 of 30473
I couldn't find mention of this brand anywhere. Does anyone know ANYTHING about John Goodeker bootmakers? I bought these 'cause they're English and about $6 ...

post #27734 of 30473
WTF they totally reworked the ebay app again. Sigh. I guess it's a bit better than the last one, but wasn't needed imo.
post #27735 of 30473

I haven't posted on this thread before but I read it a lot and have recently started thrifting and selling full time.  This thread been great at making me anxious that I'm going to get screwed over as a seller on Ebay... Well.. I got a return request for a Canali suit that kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I don't accept returns so it was for "not as described". It said:

 

"Hello - I just received the suit and I'm disappointed, the quality was not as expected. I brought it to a tailor to get an opinion and they said the fabric was worn and the left suit sleeve, pant crotch, and suit sleeves were tailor wrong and are defective.

I will be entering a return request due to these reasons. Sorry it didn't work out, it fit well so I'm disappointed"

 

I've done returns before where the buyers were open about the issues and I usually just eat the return cost and resell but saying the tailoring is defective and trying to pin the costs on me kind of annoyed me.  So...  Should I just just take the return and block the buyer or should I ask for photos of the "defective" tailoring and wear which don't really exist? 

 

Any opinions would be appreciated.
