For anyone trying to sell anything on eBay know this:
PayPal/eBay will always side with the Buyer and screw over the seller.

I got scammed by some guy last month, he bought something new and working, then returned it claiming it was faulty. Knowing how biased eBay was, I took loads of photos and even a Video of me packaging the item... When the item was returned i made an unboxing video in which it was fairly clear that he had tampered with (replaced components) and used the item then factory reset it and sent it back. When I received it, it clearly didn't have the fault he described.
In total I had 3.5Gb worth of Photos and Videos. And even made a PDF showing clearly the difference between what I sent and what I received returned, with clear references to the photos/videos. In the messages I received from the buyer, he even contradicted himself about the fault. He first said one issue as a fault, then changed the issue into a completely different one in the next message, an issue that is paradoxical... Unintentionally saying he managed to use a feature of this item that is physically impossible to even access with that fault he described..

What does PayPal do? They don't even look at the photos or videos... They request an Unbiased 3rd Party Document confirming the buyer is at fault. They also said that even if I am found to be correct, they would not reimburse me for the cost of getting such document...


In the end, I was lucky because I contacted the manufacturer who was nice enough to spend their time and money helping me and eventually made this said document... You're guessing now that the Buyer is proven of fraud or what not, he would be the one to pay for it.

NOPE. PayPal still refunds him, then simply reimburses me 99% for the damages caused to the item sold... Even though I got to keep the item that was returned it has no value since components in it were swapped, it is used, and totally bricked because only the Buyer has the Activation code to it, which even the manufacturer is not able to disclose to me given that I now have it.

If there is one thing that you take away from this. DON'T EVER SELL ANYTHING ON eBay IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO GET SCAMMED!!!!

So from a sellers perspective, what happens then if a buyer returns the item using this deal? Do Paypal just take the entire funds out of your account? Or can the seller process a 'partial refund', which should be the payment value MINUS the postage it cost to send to the buyer
It doesn't really have anything to do with that. Paypal themselves (or Telus) are footing the bill for this. It really doesn't affect sellers in any way, because literally nothing is changing on their end of the transaction. The buyer is just getting their return postage paid for, with everything else proceeding normally. I don't get the fuss. The single and only way it could affect any seller is if somebody returns something that they otherwise wouldn't have bothered sending back, because return postage would have made it not worth their while due to an item's low value. I don't see that as an inherent negative either. I've had quite a few faulty things over the years that only cost a few quid and had to basically just write the money off, because it'd cost as much (or more) to return it as I'd get from a refund.

As a pro seller on eBay voting cold. How about refunding the wasted postage costs paid by us too not to mention time and messed up goods

Considering seller should pay postage if item is bad/not as advertised, etc this will only benefit people who want to return items for no reason just to be annoying to seller.

So if you bought an item with Free P&P but it needs to be returned, and it'll cost £10 to return, Paypal will reimburse you?

Exactly. This "deal" is another reason for sellers not to accept PayPal.

This, so much this! The idea that you can buy something, use it for a while and then return it for no actual good reason is silly...

From the perspective of a buyer it's good that returns are "free" but for sellers.. not really. :(

As someone who doesn't buy on eBay that often, a quick question. I'm bidding for something that seems almost too good to be true. Still rather expensive ~£1000. The seller has stated "no returns accepted". If it turns out to be a duff, and I've paid by PayPal can I make a claim for a refund?
#28
I did this a few months back and never heard anything back from PayPal one way or the other...hmm.

Please don't just out and out abuse this as they won't keep doing it

yes you're covered .Happened to me a few times for amounts over £1000.
#32
Do I need to return it using Paypal or can I do it with royal mail? Does it have to be done through their website, as in when you return on Ebay, they have that page to purchase return postage? Sorry if that's a dumb question, but I have something to return tomorrow, and want to make sure I do it right!
#33
Does anyone know how to activate this? I have to send back a clothes bundle due to the quality being awful, I am 39 weeks pregnant, believe me if I didn't have to I wouldn't. I'm not trying to scam the seller in any way but am not happy with the product at all, so I think this is a good thing as altogether I would have spent over £10 postage for not fit for purpose goods.

So if I sell something on eBay in good faith and the buyer thinks I don't want it for any reason, they can return it to me for a full refund. Something not right here, surely.

Internet shopping would hardly function if buyers were required to keep everything at their own expense when they're unable to examine the goods first. There's plenty of legitimate reasons something wouldn't suit once it turns up. It sucks for the seller, for sure, but if buyers didn't have that fall-back they probably wouldn't have any selling business at all.

Not sure I get your drift. I list something on eBay that is something I have used, or used, and buyer thinks it does not suit when it arrives!!! Beam me up Scotty. Think I'll sell elsewhere.

been 'scammed' on buying and selling, and heard many stories (friends and family). But have had plenty of problems from individual sellers to.

Just went to activate on my account and it said I had already activated it in April and was valid until 31st December.
Don't recall activating before, so thanks for the reminder, may come in useful heading towards Christmas. -
