    So I hope this is a sign that Paypal is moving towards better policies: I provided USPS tracking, link to grailed item page, and link to positive feedback for grailed item sold, all in the Paypal resolution center. Then I called them by phone, just to ask if I could provide anything else. Since I was covered by Seller Protection when I sold the item, the guy on the phone immediately unlocked my funds back into my account. I don't know if they can resolve chargeback with the CC company, but at least it looks like they're protecting sellers a bit more?

    Lesson learned though: stop selling to annoying lowballers on grailed, only to SF bros you know. Better yet, buy at retail and wear for life.

    I had an "item not as described" situation on grailed where the buyer didn't even bother to send me a PM first and just opened a dispute on paypal without warning, and since the item was less than $100, I just said f*ck it and refunded him to avoid the hassle. Annnnd then he tried to re-sell the supposedly not as described item on grailed... for more than it bought it for in the first place.

    I also like when people tell me it's x amount at a shop somewhere, usually like $20 more than I have it listed. Just buy it from them then.

    Peer-to-peer selling, you'd think, would make everyone more sensitive to customer service people, but if anything, it seems to have brought out the entitled dickiness in a lot of people. The stories or chargebacks are just plain ridiculous.

    The worst excuse/explanation I've heard, and I've heard this more than once, is "That guy is clearly richer than me and doesn't need the money as much." I mean, wtf?

    From now on, I'm stuffing pictures of my kids (aka someone else's kids) inside the pockets of everything I sell, just as a preemptive guilt-tripping measure for any charge backers.

    Or you could just send them a coke bottle, wait for them to do a charge back, then send the correct thing and claim it was a mistake.

    This worked on me once. Only it was a wallet I found in high school with a student metro card, some cash and a picture of who I would assume was Jesus.

    Appreciate the information and the PM, thank you very much. I e-mailed and they were very prompt and polite. ~Order placed~

    Betrayed by the organization they trusted, two leather jacket makers strike out on their own, determined to right the wrongs of the past. Charly and Daniel star in:

    Drew Detective. We get the jawnz we deserve.
