Please be aware that if a product is returned as faulty and no fault is found the item will be held until payment is received for the cost of return shipping.
are they allowed to do this?
from what i remember of my economics classes at school, and this applied for a shop so i dont see why it wouldnt apply for an ebay shop, that according to trading standards, not matter what of the sellers policy, they have an obligation to deal with the matter themselves and contact the manufacturer themselves.
now this was a few years ago so i don't know if this applies, or if my teacher taught me non-sense.
this was for an auction of a watch, and it seems when i enquired of the matter they no longer wanted my business, and blocked me from all transactions.
