Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1909

"Ebay Buyer Mentality":

 

Why do so many buyers watch an item that is BIN or Best Offer, but none of them ever make an offer?  Things that make you go hmmmm......

I remember reading your post about that shirt...was hoping it wouldn't happen to me any time soon. I called ebay, they said to try and resolve it. If it doesn't work out they'll step in, and most likely I'll win it. Will I take a hit from him if he leaves neg feedback? Or can I call to get it fixed?

Here's the listing

Not that I've ever sold anything but I would fight the NAD. While the light distorts the color in the ifrst picture you can certainly see the darker green in the photos. And 50$ isn't exactly chump change

I do this as basically bookmarking an item that I want. It could be that I don't even necessarily want that exact one, just something similar. Basically, I use it as an informal reminder of things I like or want at a future date.

I've been watching the same set of Subaru Forester all weather floor mats for probably 10 months. Maybe I'll finally buy them this fall.

Anyone having trouble w/ Garage Sale?  Can't get any auctions to launch. Hangs for an hour or so at "uploading images", then crashes.  Checked all the usual suspects, internet, restart, refreshed eBay token.

I just find it odd that on Best Offer items it's basically asking people:  "Offer me a price and I may accept it", yet people just "watch" it and never offer a price.

BIN also takes out any sense of urgency, though. People watch the item, think about the item, perhaps wait until they have more money, etc. Ultimately they don't budge because they don't feel any competition. When they watch an auction and see its first bid go up it lights a fire under their asses to pay up or forget about it.

To be fair, a lot of times I'll watch an item that's BINOBO as a backup. If I find another item and end up buying it, I'm not going to go back and unwatch the original item.

I gave full measurements and do not offer returns. Ebay system says I'm not obligated to accept the return. If I decline and he leaves neg, will I be able to get it removed?

Any thoughts?

Should be able to. Sounds like, assuming he knows how to take his own measurements, he knowingly bought a suit that wasn't going to fit him.

Sounds like someone who knows how to return a suit without having to pay shipping:  :censored:

Hi there, I just check my item, and the description of this suit doesn't match the real conditions.
I would like to return it sometime next week.

Thoughts on getting this neutral removed? Buyer messaged me several times complaining about the price in relation to the condition after he received it. Item was clearly listed as used and pictures showed fading.

Anyone on here that's ever watched Metalocalypse, I heard Toki's voice in my head when reading their message.
