Well I guess proper procedure is to file a non-paying bidder thing on Ebay. Hopefully that will scare him into paying you. If it doesn't.... probably nothing will. But I'm pretty sure you need to file that to get your final value fee to be not charged by ebay. Non-paying bidder link

Thanks!

I didn't know that existed. Exactly what I wanted to know.

De rien. Good luck with it. If someone else bid, you should be able to do a 'second chance offer" to the second-highest bidder if you'd like.

Just got the two ties I bought from mainy, one of our own, with the Ebay id crazearcade. He threw in a complimentary third tie, just as good as the other two. Class act!

I just had a transaction with ebay seller: vip_couture

The item was delivered, but the size was completely off.

I am tempted to leave negative feedback, but he seems to respond in a psychotic manner.

Any one else had experience with him?

I would advise people to avoid him.

Have you tried working it out with them first - asking for return/refund??

I just purchased three Malo linen sport coats from him which I should get sometime next week. I hope my experience is better.

I asked for a return / refund, and was told I would have to pay shipping both ways. Given that the sizing of the item was definitely way off, I expected better. It was also cheaper / easier to relist at the correct size, so I did that.

I wasn't too upset. I bought the item initially to check out the seller who had a Boss Baldessarini suit that I was interested in. His loss.

I recently had two experiences with fake brand name items from sellers--one refunded everything except for the return shipping, and the other just the item cost. jeffscloset - Loads of Prada sweaters and shirts. This guy is very communicative, and cordial. My shipment was evidently delayed for at least 10 days because the label got wet, and the sweater got sent back to him. Hmmmm. I did finally receive the supposed Prada sweater, and it lacked any size, composition or care instructions tags. The material wrinkled very easily. The Prada tag outside was also haphazardly sewn onto the sweater. All the photos in his auctions are low quality JPEGs so that potential buyers can't really see the lack of quality on these supposedly $1000 sweaters. I took some high resolution photos, emailed them to Jeff, and asked for a refund. He offered me a $15 discount, but also said he would refund the entire transaction if I sent it back. He "disagreed" with me as to the authenticity of the product with the only proof he has being that he knew five ex-Prada employees who would disagree with me, and that Prada quality has gone down in recent years. I sent the sweater back at my own expense, and agreed to a non-completion on eBay (he got the eBay fees back). I left him positive feedback as I didn't want him to leave me a negative. He has well over 5,000 feedback, so my one negative would not make a dent. But his would have to my perfect account. At least I got most of my money back. The other one was a $25 fake Paul Smith plain black dress shirt. The seller seems much more low profile (listing one shirt at a time), so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt although I lost shipping both ways--and shipping was $10 while he used the cheaper USPS First Class mail (about $3) to send it. One seller that I can recomment is parisvegas. Kevin sells a lot of one-off's that I'm assuming he wins at the poker tables or something like that! Only thing is that his stuff needs a cleaning once you get them, and it will smell of cigarette smoke. Then again, I think the entire city of Las Vegas smells of cigarette smoke. I got some "smoking deals" on some items because his photos are shaky and the colors are off, and he does little to describe them.

I just received a navy pique Malo polo shirt from VIP. Took maybe 3 days longer than expected. Shirt is fine. His measurements were accurate but mine weren't (I'm selling it on B&S). Maybe your experience will be OK.

I bought a sportcoat from him last fall. His communication style is flat out bad, but I got the coat on time. I'd do business with him again.

There is a seller using the eBay ID of jacques-worn. Worm would be more properly descriptive. The seller lists a lot of shoes so many of you may have seen his listings.

He had a transaction with a Buy It Now price of $134 and described the shipping as $15 plus insurance. The listing also had a Make Best Offer feature available. I used that feature.

I made a Best Offer of $126 and specified in the Other Terms feature that the Offer was to Include the shipping. I provided my zip code so that they could evaluate the probable costs to deliver.

I did not get a response for over 24 hrs. And I saw no reason to let my offer hang to give them a chance to see if anyone else would pay more. It was not a Bid, it was a Best Offer that they could either accept or reject. I sent the seller an eBay message that I withdrew my offer and to not consider it any longer. Fifteen minutes later I get a notice from eBay that the seller had accepted my Best Offer. Then I get an Invoice through eBay showing a price of $126 plus $17 for shipping and insurance. That then is a total delivered cost of $143. Which is not what I had specified in the Make Best Offer. If the shipping is to be billed at $17, then the purchase price would be $109. Pretty simple math involved.

I sent the seller a message telling them that I did not agree to pay the amount they were billing. But, further, I had informed them that the offer was withdrawn anyway. What the heck. Not only were they trying to accept a withdrawn offer, but were trying to increases the price on me at the same time. Seems pretty shady to me, if not outright crooked.

Seller then threatens to file a Non Paying Bidder report. What the heck. The seller did not accept the Best Offer that I had made, did try to increase the offer after I had withdrawn it, and now will report me as Non Paying? Why would anyone make a threat like that?

OK. So now the seller Has filed the Non Paying Bidder report. So I get some eBay alert about a possible "strike." How should I deal with this matter. Oh, for whatever it is worth, the seller states that they have a good refund policy, Send it back for Store Credit. I would advise others to not expect to get anything from them if that situation developed. But, if that is the actual refund policy, why pursue the matter. They have the shoes and are out nothing at all. Or, then, I could pay, get the shoes, send them back so that they get some frequent flyer miles, and end up with Store Credit. Any purpose in that.

It seems that this seller is destined to be a real little problem. Suggestions for how I should deal with it would be great.

Paypal dispute question. Any advice is appreciated:

About a month ago I sold a pair of shorts to a guy on sufu. I offered insurance for extra (he acknowledges this), and he declined. 2 days ago he raises an "item not received" dispute. He stated that he was on vacation, and the package never made it to his house.

I replied with what i said above (offered him insurance, he declined; and also how could he guarantee non arrival if he wasnt present?). He then posts the following, and escalates to a claim:

By "insurance" i figured the seller simply meant a tracking number. i didn't need updates on where it was or care when it got here, as stated i was on vacation. as long as it got here was all that mattered. i sympathize with the seller if he's fulfilled what he needed to do but i don't believe i should be left with nothing over someone else's mistake.

The seller doesn't feel responsible for what's happened to the package and there's no tracking number to know where it could be. I've given it way longer than needed for a package from anywhere around the world to be delivered by now.


I thought him not choosing to pay for insurance waivered any responsibility on my behalf?

Anyway, paypal wants a resolution; but the only options they give me are "Issue the buyer a full refund", "I can provide tracking information" or "The buyer has already been refunded and I can provide proof of the previous refund".

I cant provide a tracking number. Do i have a leg to stand on ? Or should i just give him back his money; and never post anything without tracking again ?
TIA

I'd wait for some other people to reply, but my understanding is that without a tracking number you won't have a leg to stand on with PayPal. PayPal almost always sides with the buyer and frankly I can understand why for a situation like this. If you have no proof that you ever mailed the package, why should PayPal or the seller believe you did? Not that I'm accusing you of scamming anyone, but... yes in the future spend the 45 cents (or however much it is) to get Delivery Confirmation. Insurance is a separate issue. Insurance is not tracking. You don't have to buy insurance, but you do have to buy tracking. The only thing I don't understand in your post is the vacation comment. Are you implying the package was shipped to his house but he wasn't around to pick it up? Good luck with finding an out though.
