If a seller suddenly gets a number of poor feedbacks they'll sometimes put a request block on (if they're very bad they'll completely stop you bidding). Items that might not ship overseas can have request blocks too - I came across a Paraffin waxed jacket, presumably blocked for 'Paraffin'.
Makes sense. I think it was because the seller had a limited amount of feedback for the price. I ended up losing at the end though :\post #6048 of 1599012/22/15 at 9:06pmpost #6049 of 1599012/22/15 at 9:52pmpost #6050 of 1599012/22/15 at 9:55pmpost #6051 of 1599012/22/15 at 10:27pmkeep an eye out for a ups driver wearing hot fire jawnz
its been like three weeks since i purchased something on groiled, and that item has not arrived yet, and the seller hasn't responded to my polite inquiries on the site nor through email. im anxious that its gonna just show up right after i file a paypal dispute.
am i screwed if i paid with paypal funds and a debit card?
this never would have happened if i'd just used sf marketplace.. i'm such a fool.. fok please forgive me..
Edited by ShoutOutsFoMyBo - 12/23/15 at 1:50ampost #6052 of 1599012/23/15 at 4:52amwell, shit always happens and sometimes it takes a long time to be able to find the time to make a trip to the post office. it's not always easy if your work hours or shit don't really allow for it. the polite thing to do would be to first send an e-mail saying that given the time frame, if there is no further communication, you will be opening a dispute to protect yourself. if the seller responds after you've opened the dispute, do NOT close the dispute. leave the dispute open until you HAVE THE ITEM IN YOUR HAND. do not close it because there is a tracking number, as he can just be sending you garbage instead. of course, disclose all this in your dispute.
somewhat related, i've had a seller who once sent me an item that was grossly not as described, and he kept trying to get me to close the dispute, which would effectively kill any leverage i have over the situation. i did not budge despite his sob stories (told me the money suddenly had to go towards his sister's surgery once i opened the dispute.... right....), and eventually, i got my money back from the seller because he knew he'd lose his case.post #6053 of 1599012/23/15 at 5:38ampost #6054 of 1599012/23/15 at 5:41ampost #6055 of 1599012/23/15 at 5:45am
While we're on the subject of disputes... I recently won an ebay auction and paid for the item only to have the guy cancel it a day later and say "the item sold in store"--what store he's talking about is unclear. I suspect bullshit (I think it sold for less than he expected) but I have no recourse, right? He can say he doesn't have the item and there's no ebay police to go force him to ship it. Should I just take my refund and be happy?post #6056 of 1599012/23/15 at 5:46amQuote:
if this dude is trying to scam you, he's really bad at it. leaving bread crumbs everywhere!
@shoreman1782, both are possibilities. there are b&m and even online stores (eg. ln-cc used to do their clearances on ebay, re-porter) that also sell on ebay. sometimes, things move in their b&m and the online inventory isn't updated in time. either way, you're probably not going to get the item. sorrypost #6057 of 1599012/23/15 at 5:48amQuote:Originally Posted by shoreman1782

You can leave him negative feedback but that's about itpost #6058 of 1599012/23/15 at 6:02amSelling online is getting worse. Aside from the hordes on grailed that ask questions and never respond to answers, submit offers then don't pay, add to fitting room and wait until it's $11 and then send you an offer for $5...
I just got a decent offer on eBay so I accepted and now 3 days later he hasn't paid or responded to any of my polite messages asking if he needs more time or simply changed his mind, just so I at least know what's going on.post #6059 of 1599012/23/15 at 6:19ampost #6060 of 1599012/23/15 at 8:01amQuote:Originally Posted by OccultaVexillum
