Got back a box of rocks and had to paid shipping. Ended up out $400.

I try to sell on here now as I assume regulars aren't scammers, or it's at least safer.

I sent someone a pair of Oakley Lenses once they swore they just knew were fakes. I had bought them from the NYC store so I know they weren't. Eventually ebay just refunded him out of their pocket.

 

Was weird though. He refused to take them to the store to get looked at.

Anyone else running into that? I doesn't bug me that much as I've never been burned by a seller in B&S.

That is the rule. Sellers should account for any fees in their listing price. If anyone runs into a buyer insisting on gift payments or sees listing with +x% fees, please PM me and I will sort it out.

that's like 1/4 of the listings, if not 1/3... how are we going to report/enforce?

Mods have a process....there is just only so many of us so we can't catch all of them. Shoot me a PM and I'll take it on.

I see nothing wrong with letting buyers and sellers work it out themselves. The posted rule is seller pays PayPal fees but not every transaction is the same. I only brought it up earlier to see how solid the rule was.

Bottom line is its against SF rules and more importantly, PayPal. SF doesn't want any trouble with those guys smile.gif

I never would ask someone to pay F&F on my posted asking price. however if they ask for a big discount I'll give them the option to pay that way as a way of getting closer on price

I actually didnt know it was against the rules, I thought we just couldnt post it but we could ask a buyer to pay that way. I guess in order to counter that might post shipping fees in the for sale thread.

I will be the first to admit I have been asking for personal payment but will immediately stop! My bad!

This.

As a buyer I've had a number of sellers demand through pm that payment be made via F&F or try to tack fees on to their listed price after telling them I was ready to buy. I find it tacky at best and I will walk away from the deal almost every time.

This has happened to me. Most recently over a $200 deal. The money is not the the issue - it would be less than $7 - but it just makes you pause and wonder if there's something not quite right. In most cases I walk away.

5. Do not ask for personal payments, additional money for PayPal fees, or any violations to terms of service from another website.

 

If we find out about it, the individual will be temp or permanently banned from B&S and/or the forum.  Dead serious.  

 

Anyways...back to this awesome thread!
