Unpaid item case was already on its second day, just trying to see if they maybe just maybe were still planning on paying
Still don’t understand why automatic payment isn’t required for eBay or Grailed. I mean, you have to do it online anyway...? :confused:

I think Poshmark has it right. If an offer’s accepted, you just get an email — Congrats, you bought it!

I'm really lazy about leaving feedback even though I know I should. I think what stops me is the requirement to leave a comment. They're always just so inane, I can't fucking stand them. Just let us click a thumbs up and move on.
eBay fills it in for you now. (It’s either the last positive comment you left, or a generic one). You don’t even have to write anything. Just click the button!

I meant the disparity between views and watchers.
I think I know what is going on. When you scroll down through the list of the items, it's possible to click on the watch button without opening that item so it does not count as a view even though the user clicked on the watch icon. That's probably what is going on.

One for the block list. Said it was delivered never received, instructed him to contact his postmaster and local mail lady. Immediately opens a case on ebay for INR. Closed in my favor. Now threatening paypal/chargebacks.

That's the Poshmark reseller mentioned by someone a few weeks ago. Some of these people are just unbelievable.

What kind of bad stuff was he up to again? I couldn’t find that user name on Poshmark.

This is why I don't send messages like this. I'll send a follow up invoice, give them a day and then open the unpaid item case. I'll occasionally have people request to cancel after the case is but tell them it can only be closed with receipt of payment. At a minimum, I want these morons to dinged with the unpaid case so it might weed them out for others.
How long do you wait before you open the Unpaid Item case, just out of interest.

This is one of the things managed payments is supposed to fix when it fully rolls out next year.
