  • Epaulet x Styleforum Alpine Loden Collection

    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Shop the Loden collection here.

Would you leave a negative for a non-profit charity ebayer?

I bought an item off ebay, and it's completely the wrong size from what I "won" and the measurements are waaaaaaay off...I emailed the seller and she said, "too bad, we're a non profit ministry and we don't take returns, you should have checked the measurements."
Paypal is of no help (as usual)...
Would you leave them a negative? Or just forget it?

If the response listed above is a quote then I wouldn't hesitate to do so.

Neg like there's no tomorrow. You've paid them for a product, not given them a donation. If there's reason for negging, of course.

I hate orgs which constantly use their "nonprofit" status as justification for exceptional treatment. Neg them.

Did you file a significantly not as described claim? In my experience, they've been very responsive.

If the circumstances are as described, then, yes, I'd leave negative feedback without hesitation.

They should be treated the same in a transaction. That isnt a permit or license for poor service.
