And then I found almost the exact same suit nwt.
The seller hadn't shipped it out yet (he said he wouldn't get it out until thursday or friday). But he had slipped in a note on the paypal invoice he sent me that there were no returns. Now he is refusing to cancel the order.
Any ideas of what can be done? I understand the seller must be frustrated...but dude hasn't even shipped it out yet. I did add a note that I wanted the buyer to "try to have it arrive at my place within 3-5 days as agreed upon" when I sent him the money.
Edit: People seem to be confused. I know I'm shit out of luck. I know what the parameters are. That's why I posted here to see if any out of the box thinkers had any ideas . No need for everybody to keep restating the obvious. I'm not looking for the internet protocol police.
Edit again: Putting my rebuttal in here to pre-empt some of the vitriol I've been getting. Calm down fellas.
It's very common to be able to return something. That's pretty basic american commerce. Not just the big box stores. The majority of individual sellers on ebay, small mom and pop stores. They have return policies.
Normally what happens? Somebody buys something. You package it up, spend 30min on USPS printing a label, treck to the post office drop it off. Then he returns it, and you have to go to the trouble of getting the package back, and ripping off the return label. The buyer pays return shipping. That's accepted practice.
In my case what kind of extra effort did I give this poor seller? He spent some time messaging me. That's pretty much it. Now compare that with being out $500 for something you don't want.
On top of it, I didn't exactly like the fact that he slipped in a little note about no returns on the bottom of his invoice (it was a paragraph long), which I was not made aware of until after I asked for the cancellation. The seller never informed me of his no-return in our interactions prior.
