I recently sold a t-shirt to a buyer on eBay with a star rating of 10. I sent it off as usual and he claimed that he never received it. We waited a little while to see if it eventually arrived......but it didn't...... so I sent another one out.
A couple of days later I was going to send an eBay message to the buyer just to ensure that this second t-shirt had arrived. However it now told me that he was no longer a registered user.
I can't help thinking that he wanted a couple of the t-shirts, and this was a way for him to do it and only pay for one. Thinking about it....it's so easy to rack up a rating of 10 if you're a regular buyer/seller on eBay. It's just annoying really and makes you doubt honest buyers when the same situation happens. Then again, I can't prove anything so guess it'll just get left at that.
I know there's Recorded Delivery but this cut's into your profits when all the fees are taken off too. Many will say ditch eBay....and I'd like to....but can't really at the moment cause there's no decent alternative that attracts the masses. Oh well.
