    ^^ Nowadays, a "no return" policy serves only to deter buyers from bidding, buying or making offers, not from being able to return an item. eBay will pretty much always side with buyers on returns, no matter the reason.

    You must have missed the discussion a couple of pages back... under the new eBay policies, and "Not As Described" is an auto return, does not matter what the reason, no matter how much the evidence sides with the seller. Any other reason (does not fit, changed mind, etc), still leaves you open to negative feedback; so it's usually in your best interest to just take it back to save time and headache.

    You'll be shocked at the stories; including how I was instructed to take back a different shirt than I sold, and how one of our guys had to fork out $250 in shipping to get a blazer back from Hong Kong, where the buyer claimed content was not as described, when the content tag agreed with the listing.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I am not a huge seller on eBay so I'll take my chances, however small it is.

    So, is it in bad taste to post the buyer's ID here?

    No... if they are a pain, or make frivolous claims; its good to share so others can add to their blocked list if they so choose.

    A few for your block lists. All non-paying bidders:

    ^ This buyer messaged me, claiming that they were unable to complete eBay's checkout. They then asked to pay via CashApp, which I declined, and they stopped messaging me.

    Screen Shot 2018-06-09 at 3.29.50 PM.png

    ^ This buyer bid up an item, outbidding three other buyers. Didn't pay, didn't respond to messages.

    ^ This buyer messaged me a few days after auction close, saying they'd pay by the end of the week, when they got paid. Nothing after that and unresponsive to messages.

    I'll try but I didn't think it would be removable because it speaks to the subjective 'overall user experience'. Busy with school at the moment, so suffering some ebay fatigue (haven't listed anything new in more than a month). And all these new return policies aren't helping.

    Unless things have changed recently, mentioning a case in feedback is grounds for removal.

    Not ebay (grailed), but wanted some feedback from some experienced sellers as I'm not much of a reseller.
    Did I under price this? It sold super quick and had a few offers right away

    If it is reasonably priced, then #flipbrag i guess?

    EDIT: strange, SF automatically changes grailed to ebay in a link

    Wow wtf, that's so fucking lame. Just because you beat them to the market by 10 years and they swooped in and did it right while you twiddled your thumbs..
