  1. Wow, so I made an appeal yesterday and wrote: "Hello, Can you please explain your decision? In the listing it is clearly written: "Too many buyers take advantage of Paypal s policy. From now on, if you select a shipping option that does not offer any compensation, no refund will be possible. Choose wisely.". The buyer chose the shipping option without tracking nor insurance. When he bought the item he agreed the the terms in the listing and bought knowingly. I even pointed it out to him via private message before sending, he said it was no problem. He also requested to declare it as a gift wit
  2. I just learned today that what I wrote above is totally wrong. eBay will no do anything when the payment method is something else than PayPal. Yes, just learned that eBay will ignore whatever you write in the listing. If you write this for example: "Too many buyers take advantage of Paypal's policy. From now on, if you select a shipping option that does not offer any compensation, no refund will be possible. Choose wisely." eBay will ignore it completely even if the buyer bought knowingly and "agreed to these terms". If the seller cannot provide a tracking, he is screwed n
  3. Thank you for your message, I will be able to prove it was premeditated and win the case... not This happened after most cases and I agreed solely because of all the past mishandled cases, I would not have agreed if everything was fine. I checked and the account I am using now does not have any sanction so I do not think this has anything to do with it. And even if it did, I should have been informed no? I was never told that I lost seller protection or that I did anything wrong, it was always "we followed the PayPal Buyer Protection procedure" and "the decision that was made was
  4. A so called "profile-0" just opened a case for item not received, guess who is going to win the case...
  5. After the horror stories above, here is a nice one: Buyer asked me if it was possible to deal outside eBay, pay by bank transfer instead of PayPal and have a little discount (since I did not have to pay eBay/PayPal fees). I told him there was no problem. He paid via bank transfer and I shipped the item. Couple of weeks later, the guy sends me a message on eBay telling me he was so happy with the sale (item was in mint condition, he thought it was new) that he wanted me to relist the item so he could buy it on eBay in order to leave a positive feedback and then cancel the sale. I told him i
  6. Just came across this article: Ebay accused of failing its sellers as fraudulent buyers manipulate the system Turns out there are many articles like this. I don't know which sub is more appropriate. Different reasons: - Bank transfer seem to be only a thing in Germany. I have rarely seen it elsewhere. - Most buyers are scared off when they do not see PayPal (now I know why I guess, they want stuff for free) - With my very first account, I had this every week: Buyers "buy" the item and then never pay. You then have to open a case for item not paid and wait and th
  7. Following this thread. I feel like it is my duty as “customer†and former reviewer to share the experience I had with eBay/PayPal. Everyone knows what they are so I do not need to introduce them. But very few know how they are. Of course, I probably would not talk about them if everything was good (if it was an awesome experience maybe). I have been on both sides (as a buyer and as a seller). I do not have the exact value but I for sure have bought more than 500 items and also sold north of 500. While ~95 % went just fine, I will focus on the bad. Why you may ask? Well, because the

  9. I know this case. Happened to me as well. Seller saying they did not receive the item and then a couple of months later you notice they sell the item in question... You can tell ebay but they will not give a single bunny This happened to me a lot: I sell a board with 100% perfect socket. Sellers says the board does not work. I have to pay for the return. I receive the board and the socket is damaged/destroyed. eBay does not give a single bunny (does not matter if you take picture of the socket before or not, they simply dont care). I also had one case where the buyer lost the PayPal
  10. Problem is: we are humans... Scam happens on both sides... Honest seller will prefer bank transfer over PayPal afraid of scam buyers Honest buyer will prefer PayPal over bank transfer afraid of scam sellers Can't trust no one but yourself EDIT: Actually sometimes you can't even trust yourself... Sigh
