EBAY - what do I do?

ODB_69 Avatar
banned8y, 6m agoPosted 8 years, 6 months ago
A buyer won my item (buy it now) then sends me an e-mail saying having probs with card can I wait a few days for payment?

I said yeah, won't worry about it until friday (yesterday), this was last Thurs btw

Sent reminder Thurs night....nothing

Sent e-mail today asking if card was sorted.....


get one back 10 mins ago saying, yeah cards fine but I'm gonna buy it from The Hut instead......

What can I do? Surely unpaid item dispute gets me just my costs back (which was only pence) and she just gets a slap on the wrist?

Feedback not an option obviously now.......

report him and the email

Unfortunately nothing.

I wouldn't even bother disputing it, not worth a possible neg. (especially as it was only pence)

A small percentage of ebay sales go tots up.

That's why I set all mine to immediate payment only, much better IMO no worries now.

God thats terrible. Ebay has gone way downhill since the changes
#4
just get your pence back and carry on, its always been this way. keep smiling:)

She don't even get that slap on the wrist! She just gets away with it which is totally wrong! Sorry ODB but there isn't a lot you can do apart from make her feel guilty by sending her an e-mail saying how she shouldn't have messed you around! I personally would open a dispute to get your monies back! x

sellers can't neg now.

turd post is the only way.

i must be to only one that likes the new ebay system. as a buyer now at least i know that 100% pos feedback on a seller is honest and not just as it was before, when it was posative becuase buyers were scared of retaliatory neg rep.
for buyers like me its a good thing.

That helps the OP.

This happened to me but the total was in the hundreds, it's so annoying. Just send them a strongly worded email saying that they enter into a contract when they agree to buy the item and that they're essentially breaking the law, and that if they were going to continue that kind of behaviour on ebay then they should strongly consider leaving the site, as that isn't the way things work. And say how disappointed you are. Generally just make them feel bad!

And as other people have said, you will just have to open a dispute and that's all you can do. It sucks.
#13
this has happened to me send them a email saying how rude they are and messing you around is not on get ur fees back and forget about it what about second chance buyer

Yh collection an option, but have all the e-mails sent to and from and the last one just proves they haven't paid for it....

To be honest here I knew this was gonna happen. I never put a 10 rating minimum or anything and when it came through they had -2 feedback.......
I knew they'd do it just thought if they did at least it will get them banned, but by looks of it Ebay wont give a monkeys.....
Its not even funny, just pathetic....silly b**** must have a screw loose

the thing i dont get is does ebay want to make money or lose it? by introducing the dumbest feedback system, sure they are bringing more buyers but what about us poor sellers just driving us away, ebay is a selfish company and they wont do anything until they get hit hard so i say, stop selling with them and choose a different site. Ive changed to ebid and gumtree well not as fast as ebay but better to get some decent service than ebay. just drives me mad when stuff like this happens i hope your problem sorts out and make that two for sending the turd to his house lol :giggle:

they want to market it as a mall with proffessional companies and thats why they want to get rid of small sellers , tbh most ppl that get banned get banned for a reason, they just arent upto scratch

My mail i'm gonna send
what u think:

I see now why you have a -2 rating.
May I remind you by winning a bid you enter a legally binding contract and I'm inclined to take you to a small claims court purely for the principal of the matter.
I cannot see what your reasons are for this whatsoever, I was good enough to let you pay later some time as you had a problem with your card, which was obviously a lie....I could have filed a claim straight away but was doing the decent and friendly thing.
May I suggest you see some sort of councillor as obviously you get some sort of kick out of this which is pretty pathetic and most definitely not normal behaviour.

I am going to pass all info on to Ebay and hopefully get your account indefinitely suspended.


BTW Chaps...item was Condemned 2 on 360 (Nuts Deal....)

ODB do you think it is worth the neg you will probably get?

Chalk it up as experience and move on IMO.

ebay law yes, legal laws not! and court would not accept your claim unless you were defrauded

Thought you can't get Negs if it an unpaid item?
I can prove it is so surely nut job will be powerless?

Only if he doesn't repond to the dispute, once replied to he can then leave a neg.

Ebay will not be bothered, they will refund fees but at what cost to you.

Just not worth chasing, unless you don't mind the possibility of negative feedback.
#29
Negative makes no different,people still buy,aslong as you not got crazy amounts of neg,they buy regardless.

Get on and forget about it and get your next item listed.
