    I downloaded that app last weekend and had not noticed that feature.

    THANK YOU! [​IMG]

    Buyer told me that shoes from the outlet store should not be sold as "new in the box". That's half the new shoes on ebay.

    You sure it's not 5277?

    If it is, the official color is antique burgundy calfskin.

    Strange question from the buyer's side (me). I should probably know the answer to this, but I'm not sure in which direction I should go...

    I bought a new steamer from a seller in Germany yesterday. The item was listed as being sent from Germany, though the seller was clearly Chinese. That didn't bother me.

    I bought it, paid immediately and received positive feedback though it went unshipped. I received a message from the seller this morning stating that they are out of stock until the 30th at the minimum, but I can choose to either wait or buy some cheaper, pink model they have on offer.

    I replied that I can't wait for it to ship and would prefer that they cancel the sale.

    I just got a response that said that they, along with every other seller, have sold out and that I should wait until they get more.

    Now, that obviously annoyed me. I responded that they can cancel my order to recoup their seller fees, or I'll go through PayPal myself. I just took a look at it in ebay to cancel the transaction, but it doesn't seem to be there anymore. I am instead offered to contact the seller. There is another option to clarify problems (such as item not received/not as described), which directs me to PayPal. These don't seem to fit the problem, so I'm not sure which direction I should take it.

    Any advice?

    ^How about threatening to file an item not received case with eBay to force the issue with the seller?

    No color guide.

    You have to search back issues of the catalog and cross reference the model with the numbers.

    Sanford 5277

    You can use issuu.com to browse the catalogs. It can be a PITA really, since the different models come and go from year to year.

    I thought of that, but since I just bought it, I'd have to wait to open that type of case.

    The seller got back to my firm-sounding email and said they'll refund me as soon as possible. Nothing yet though, and since I paid by PayPal, they could have almost certainly refunded me immediately.

    That's all the tricks I got, I'm not aware of any other way. I think the good news is you'll certainly get your money back, the bad news is you may have to wait for the seller to refund or eBay to yank the money out of their account for you.

    You just got married? Congratulations!

    Thanks for your advice, it's much appreciated!

    Haha, thanks, but I've been married for a few years now...but for some reason, this seller left me feedback that says: "We wish you a life long sweet marriage and happy life! ^ ^" Not only did they write it in English rather than German, but I have no idea why they'd wish me a happy marriage (or even how they know that I am). My wife laughed and understood it to be that they hope I find someone to marry.

    SF deal.
    European buyer opens a Paypal Non-Receipt Dispute.
    Item was shipped First Class Registered.
    Tracking shows Attempted Delivery over 2 weeks ago, hasn't been updated since.
    It was shipped to his Paypal address.
    He seems to be either refusing delivery or at least taking no effort to coordinate delivery.

    If this comes back to me will Paypal force me to make a full refund, including shipping? Will I be charged by the USPS when it is returned?
