@txwoodworker I am shocked that someone from Japan hasn't purchased those 7.5d Florsheim shell longwings.

I'm perpetually shocked at what doesn't sell and sometimes even shocked at what does :)

I just got my first Negative feedback yesterday.  8 days after receiving his tie, (and with NO messages to me at all) he says "Wrinkles all over the tie".  The guy has ONE feedback.  I messaged him asking if there's anything I can do to change his feedback.  No reply.  Grrrrrrr......

Haha ... last week I found and immediately listed a very decent pair of vintage 7.5D Alden shell wings (a first for me!), at what I thought was a BIN high enough to get an acceptable offer but not drive off reasonable bargain hunters. I was getting offers within the hour (3am) and by morning they sold at full pop, shipped to Japan through a forwarder. Wish I'd priced them $40 or so more, but I'm not complaining.

There should be a 10% bid cancellation fee.

The return rates would sky rocket if this happened and you know ebay and PP nearly always side with the buyer.

Then (and I know it's a pipe dream) eBay should allow us to block frequent bid cancellers and frequent returners. Annoying when you had a high bid for 5 days that gets cancelled and the bottom drops out. There are people who might have been turned off from bidding in that time because of the inflated high bid. Basically cancelling a bid should be a defect for a buyer just like failure to pay. (Maybe it is and I've missed it.)

I also think that non-paying bidders who win items should be subject to a restocking fee if there is on stated on the listing. I just relisted two items that were "won" last weekend but never paid for. They sat here for a week without an opportunity for a legitimate buyer to place an order... It should come as no surprise that the total amount of feedback between the two deadbeats was 2.

Is there some new scam out there? This guy has 200+ feedback, but something about the back and forth via messaging doesn't feel right.

 

He wants to return a sport coat because it doesn't fit:

 

First message came at 9:27 AM yesterday (Saturday):

Quote:
 I need to return this jacket. Regrettably the sleeves can not be shortened due to the real button wholes. Your Ebay listing said returns were accepted. I plan to be a repeat customer.

 

Second message came 45 minutes later:

 

Quote:
 Please respond ASAP with return authorization and address or return label. Stu

 

I sent the following message at 1:36 PM yesterday:

 

Quote:
 Hi,

You don't need any authorization to return an item through Ebay. Simply go to the return option for this item from your Purchase History on the Ebay website. Ebay will generate a return label for you with the correct return shipping address. Be sure to select "Doesn't Fit" as the reason for the return.

Mike

 

He responded at 1:53 PM yesterday:

Ahh because for some reason this wasn't purchased on American Ebay. Please send return address or I'll call Ebay.

 

 

So, the buyer is in New Jersey, which I understand feels like another country. But something seems off about his messages. I do accept returns, and have a 30-day return policy, which has not passed. I've taken returns from overseas buyers before without any problems. I want to make sure that this return is handled properly, as this is a $200 item. The way he wants to process this, I would lose my FVF fees and the return wouldn't be covered by Ebay (ie, I could scam him if that were my intent). I don't mind taking the return, but I also need to have the ability to charge a 10% restocking fee, and plan to do so, as this is clearly a buyer's remorse situation, and nothing was wrong with the listing.

 

Given the tone of his messages, I don't particular care if he becomes a repeat customer. SMH...

What's the policy on mentioning SF B&S sellers in this thread? I'm being screwed by a member and want to warn other potential buyers.

post #27989 of 30468
There's no policy, what is the issue?

I had a similar situation as a buyer. I had been searching for something on German eBay and forgot to change the settings back. I then a couple of days later bought something from a seller in thr US which I subsequently wanted to return. The seller told me to do as you advised this seller but I couldn't do it because it wasn't coming up as an option on the German eBay site. Neither I nor the seller could understand why this was happening until I realised it was because I had been signed into the German site when I made the purchase. Leaving aside the tone etc it might not be a scam.
