I rarely check my email tied to my ebay account so checking that daily whether I've sold something is not ideal.

Cheers,


You can change the email address or set it up to text you, just go into Account -> Communication Preferences -> Delivery Options and then also the Seller area.

This is not what I expected nor is it what you represented in your ad claiming they were new. I will not accept these as they were mis represented in your ad. please send a complete refund of my 199 immediately. I will pay the shipping to send them back to you. Thank you for your immediate attention"

I mailed brand new in the box shoes. In perfect condition and no sign of wear. I requested him to send pics of the shoes. I hoping this guy doesn't wear the shoes and then take pics?frown.gif

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I sold a new pair of gaziano and girling shoes and put a disclaimer the listing that said "please make sure you are familiar with this brand's sizing because returns are not accepted on new shoes," or something like that. It might have scared a few buyers away, but I thought it was worth it in order to protect myself.

At least he asked you first - one buyer just mailed back a pair of shoes without even asking me for a return.

Has anyone had success with moving higher $ items to auction after having them listed BINOBO for while? By success, I mean close to, if not more than you would have accepted as a best offer.

I don't understand why in this situation you can't keep both the shoes and the money. He was the idiot that gifted them back.

I have these too (wearing them now) and judging by the photo, bought from this guy. Mine were brand new in box and they are awesome.

The question is, did he ask you to refund the money?

Does anyone know how to track a package from Korea? I have a thing from an ebayer arriving for my wife's craft project, it has a tracking number but I can't figure out how to get the information about it.

 

edit: found a site, still in transit, no emergency yet!

I had a guy send me back a jacket because he said it did not fit, and he was going to throw it away otherwise.  He returned it to me, and never wanted a refund of item or shipping...

Resold it for 70$ the second time, and 50$ the first time...

i had a guy (another billionaire) bought 5 pairs of rl rugby slippers 350 each, a few days later i got a few more in and messaged him that i have more in his size, his reply: he ordered the wrong size the first time and gave away all 5 pairs but if i get his size hell be more than happy to buy again. love those customers!

I was wondering about this the other day. What's to stop you from underestimating the weight of everything (aside from a conscience, of course)? I remember before I got a precise scale I did exactly that, and nothing happened. Based on my imprecise scale, the package was somewhere between 3 and 4 lbs. The difference of 1lb was like $17 international. I chose 3 and printed the postage, sent it off, and buyer got his package just fine. If you're close do they just let it slide or something?

They randomly weigh stuff. Depends on the particular post office how lenient they are. 3lb to 3lb 15oz is same price domestic, so you did nothing wrong. If caught, it will either be delivered with postage due or kicked back to you. Both bode poorly for your feedback.
