    I (somewhat) recently had a dispute opened via paypal that was clearly a case of buyer's remorse. I agreed on accepting a return if he could prove how I misrepresented the item. Long story short, they never replied and and the dispute has now timed out and says so on the message board section. However, the status in the "Resolution Center cases" area states 'Being Reviewed By PayPal.' Do timed out cases automatically get escalated to a claim, or are they simply closed? I would think the latter. If they are closed, when can I expect the hold to be released?

    Thank you for any help.


    EDIT: I called PayPal once I had time after church and they said that when a dispute times out it is simply closed. The funds have been released back into my account.

    Agreed. There is no chance that he just happened to put that shoe horn in that position in some attempt to make the photo better. Zero.

    I think I asked this before, but does anyone have a Worthpoint account that I can get a value on something?

    "DD and Leslie Tillett shirt" would be the search...hit me up in PM if you can help me out.


    And yes, I used up the free seven day one...

    I would be willing to take a match to it at that price.

    On a brighter note, just sold a north face jacket for $20! Awesome!

    Seriously though, I barely even bother with North Face stuff unless it's something special. There's too much of it at The Rack at steep discounts to get a good price on Ebay for used stuff.

    Than take

    If you're going to be snarky with a buyer, at least use the right word...unless you wanted her to pay you for throwing it away.

    Wait, so I asked you? right? Thanks for playing.

    Not that I need to justify anything considering the excellent grammar that I have seen used here as well as on ebay, but it was done from the ebay app.

    Correcting people's spelling like that is the worst. And I say this as a professional copyeditor.

    Hey everyone,

    I sold some shoes, buyer paid, found out the shoe he bought wasnt exactly what he wanted (lined vs unlined loafer). He asked for a refund. I agreed b/c I don't want an unhappy person or a headache.

    But how do I issue a refund and cancel the transaction so I don't pay any final value fees/paypal fees?

    Thanks

    You issue the refund in paypal AFTER you get it back. Then next to the purchase in ebay theres a drop down list with a resolve a problem option. Hit that and choose seller returned item, he then has to agree to cancel the transaction or after a few days 4/7 it will close automatically and credit your fees.
