No. That is incorrect. Read again what the eBay response was.
Thank you for writing eBay in regard to your concern about the seller refusing to honor your agreement.Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. Your report will help make the eBay Community safer for everyone.
Is there something in that response that indicates that I was in violation of an eBay policy?

The seller offered the option that I could pay the increased price or get a NonPaying Bidder Strike. They knew very well that they had increased the price. I did not go on any rampage of any kind. I believe that I entered the Negative Feedback for the seller only AFTER they filed the NonPaying Bidder claim. And, if you look closely at the eBay email response, they seem to agree that the Seller refused to honor the agreement and terms of the Best Offer. If the invoice had been for the correct amount, I would have paid it as I agreed to do.

I don't want anything. The purpose of the thread is to give notice to others about various practices that eBay sellers sometimes use. The purpose of the original post was simply to inform.

Your information campaign was spectacularly successful. Now we all know what an asshole you are.

Your inability to recognize (or admit) that you did the slightest thing wrong is what's so fucking pathetic about you.

Fixed.

I made the original post. I read some responses and gave you the info from eBay. I was involved in several other things for several days and had not looked at StyleForum for a week or so. When I did look at the posts, I see that several are still delusioned and posting incorrect information about eBay policies. Those posts needed responses to help clear them up for others. One example is your recent post lauding the seller as being a "cool head" since they did not immediately respond to a negative feedback I rightly left for them. Except, you did not have knowledge that the seller had earlier unjustly filed a NonPaying Bidder report with eBay (eBay has removed that strike from my account, BTW). After that was done, I decided that the seller certainly deserved to get the negative feedback. Otherwise I would have ignored the matter. So, exactly who was it that decided to escalate something trivial?

When I talked to the fellow from the eBay president's office about the issue, he did not ever say anything to make me believe that I had done anything that was against eBay policy in the way I made the Best Offer. Gee, would you expect that he would know more about the eBay policy than you do?

I made the original post as a public service. And I have made several others as a public service to dispell the bad information that others have posted on the topic. Now, as to the "why's" of posting on the topic, are you getting paid to do it? You seem to regard the posts I've made as being done with the intent to gain a profit of some sort. I can declare that I'm not getting compensated. What is your motive?

Tarmac, what was ebay's decision in the end?

It was pretty clear cut what eBay would do, which is basically - nothing. To clarify, I did not receive payment for the item at any time. We canceled the transaction and gave each other negative feedback befor any payment or shipping. Ebay sent me no further notice or warning whatsoever. I'm not sure if Charley got an unpaid strike or not, I didn't follow up and check.

Charley, you have to understand the grand scheme of things. I gave you negative feedback because you are annoying and unpleasant to deal with. You have to stop treating it like someone stole money from you or shipped you a box of rocks. There was no fraud, I just don't like you that much. Sorry.

I'm glad I promised myself to check this thread only once a week. I might go mad otherwise.

If you didn't follow up it probably got dismissed automatically.

oh just to clarify I completed the original process of "choose to end transaction and give buyer unpaid item strike", there were no loose ends to tie up after that. I was credited non-paying bidder fees. I thought Charley was saying he appealed the strike, I didn't get any notice of appeal, or request for more information, so I don't have an indication of whether that worked for him.

Charley did you get your unpaid item strike? Inquiring minds want to know.

For the inquiring minds and others:
I got the strike because I did not understand how to respond when given the notice. I've had no previous contact / correspondence with eBay about anything. Once I figured out how to respond to eBay with the information that they needed (and which I thought they already had) they removed the strike.

About to be forced to report seller ricochets-dallas over a pair of shoes. Item was, seller claims, shipped USPS, and he provided a tracking number. Tracking # provided says that the item entered Canadian customs sometime in march, but hasn't arrived at my door. Item ended feb 27, paid for on feb 28, dispute opened in April. He has subsequently washed his hands of this, claiming that once it's in USPS's possession it's not really his problem anymore, and dispute should never have been filed. My position is that until it arrives in my possession I have not received the item the delivery of which was contracted for, and not being privy to his shipping agreement with USPS, should receive a full refund. He has not responded in a couple of weeks, and deadline is fast approaching to report him for this, which is exactly what I plan to do tomorrow.

I can sympathize with the seller's predicament, but unfortunately for him ebay and paypal policy is going to side with the buyer in these sorts of unfortunate circumstances. At the very least he should be working with you to claim the insurance money. If you don't file the claim you will have no further recourse...

I can see where you are coming from as a seller A Harris. But don't you think that the buyer is in the right here?

Also JD_May didn't mention insurance. If there is insurance, that would be a better way to solve things for the seller. But if there is no insurance, then an Ebay/Paypal dispute are his only recourse.
