    I disagree - its a gateway to view all your items, and make a purchase from something else.



    Haha, my adjectives are ridiculous sometimes. Its part filler, part hype, but important nonetheless.

    Nice looking suit and the buyer may just be looking for a way out of the sale. I don't know what the big leaguers will say, but I'd just say offer him a refund and have him pay the return shipping. If he can agree to cancel the transaction and therefore get your fees back (it's possible after the buyer receives the item, right?), you'll be out nothing but your time. It's either that or he'll quite possibly win a PayPal dispute and they'll ask him to return and bill you for shipping.

    Or he'll win a dispute and be instructed to "destroy" the suit because it's "fake."

    You have to love the "buyer protection; eff you, seller" policy at PayPal.

    I wouldn't even risk him opening a case because he doesn't want to pay the shipping, I would pay the shipping too. You will likely sell it for more the second time around.

    At what point do you not except a return. This is my second return this week. the other were shoes that were a little smaller than the guy expected, even though I gave the correct size information.

    Ebay will allow a return for any instance (whether you accept returns or not) so you might as well save yourself a item not as described case and just take the return. It will get better, don;t be discouraged.

    Thanks you guys. You're absolutely right about the negative feedback. I sent him a message and showed him how I know its authentic so I'll see how he responds. If he still denies it, its probably buyers remorse and to save face I'll have to return it. Ebay feedback needs to be revamped. :deadhorse:

    [​IMG] Yeah, it's a fake with hand-made buttonholes. That seems likely.
