99.9% from 52000+ is hit & miss?

feedback on tv seems good.

Seeing as you bought it,perhaps you ought to have the courtesy to pay for it and not mess people about.

I agree if you buy something you pay for it but that rule changes when it is a business seller as you have DSR to enable you to pull out, but in all fairness buyers shouldn't bid or buy without thinking about the purchase first.

You think about it BEFORE you buy it,you don't then ponder whether you want it or not after clicking BIN,or in this case post on a forum and ask others to decide,i don't understand people who buy then back out,i've never done that on Ebay and as a seller it's a real bugbear of mine.

exactly, the dsr's are all well and good in protecting the consumer, but are a nightmare for businesses, just glad what I sell can be exempt from them :)

thats the exact problems with the DSR's, people think they can just do what they want, then complain when prices go up to cover the extra costs and expense involved in complying with the rules. I suppose in this case its not so bad as nothing has been sent, but totally agree, why buy it if you didn't want it.

This ebay company (oceantreetrading) are usually very good.
They are an outlet for the tv bidding channels ie: bid.tv and pricedrop.tv
I have bought numerous items from them and they are very reliable.

For Non Paying Bidders sellers should be able to leave negative feedback,i think this is the reason why a lot of buyers don't pay,there's no real comeback.

I had one recently,bought on a Sunday,no payment after four days so i messaged them asking if they still wanted the item,no response at all,case opened and closed and not one word from them.

You'd think they would at least have the courtesy to tell you they don't want it.

Anyway i've gone way O/T so i'll leave it there.

^ That annoys the hell out of me too.
At least before you could check a bidders fdbk and see if they have any negatives (then remove a bid if needs be), now theres nothing. Why they had to mess with that I dont know. If someone left a buyer an unfair neutral or neg they could request to have it removed.. Now theres just no choice but to leave a positive. So annoying.

I have several buyer requirements set on my accounts that prevent non payers from buying my items but it still doesn't stop those that have a good history and haven't had any bid retractions / non payment issues.

One thing I hope that the buyer complies with any request from the seller to cancel the transaction as this will enable the seller to claim back the end of sale fees for the transaction. I've had a few in the past who haven't done so and as you may guess it cost me for their withdrawal, this is where sellers again shoudl be able to leave negative feedback for the buyer.

Exactly, as far as stopping sellers leaving feedback because they could blackmail buyers it has the oposite effect in that buyers can and do blackmail sellers.

That and enforcing free postage (both in certain categories and by making fee postage items have higher visibility in best match) are my 2 greatest bug bears with ebay.

I never do that, for one it means they don't get a strike, and secondly you get the free relist anyway.

People buying things on eBay then not paying for them really p****s me off

I've had a brand new ps3 with games on there and twice someone has bought it then not paid or had the decency to get in touch

Plus I can't even leave negative feedback and have to wait a week to get my final value credit back

If you don't want it DON'T BID

Wow I can't believe people actually buy things and then don't pay. Every time I've bought anything off Ebay I've paid for it straight away O_O.. might be because I've only used buy it now and not auction I suppose, don't understand why people would bid if they didn't want the item.

Set them as immedialte payment, it ensures it is not sold until actually paid for and in my experience makes no difference to buyer as most pay straight away anyway.

can you do that? I had something sell yesterday on BIN and immediate payment and they still havent paid yet the item shows as sold.

Wow will you all calm down. Non paying is part and parcel, people are human and change their minds.

I can understand on small value items but I can't fault buyers for backing out of purchase £25+. If upu all got proper jobs I suppose you'd understand.

I don't understand that at all, either you want it or you don't. So you either buy it or you don't. Not rocket science. Must only really be thick people who don't understand you don't buy something unless you want it.

I can honestly say I have never bought something that I didn't want (otherwise why would I buy it in the first place?) and I have a proper job

People change theirs minds, eBay isn't binding anyway so your free to back out.

who said you weren't? No internet sale is binding.
Don't understand what having a 'proper job' got to do with it though? Doesn't make it right either. It costs people money, so that will get added onto the price people have to pay, therefore a few idiots who are too stupid to know if they want something or not mean that the normal sensible people pay more.

how do you get your listing fees back? I know you get the FVF fees back, but the listing fees I'm pretty sure you don't.
What about the time it takes staff to cancel the order?

matt3454 whilst everything you say maybe true it doesn't make it right. If you win something on ebay you should cough up, if you change your mind tough, it was your decision to bid on the item and you must take responsibility for those actions.
I guess you have never sold anything of value and then had the buyer pull out, perhaps when you have you will behave like a man and not a tool.

staff to cancel order? What staff?

Oh, i only ever sell on free listing weekends so didn't realise.

But anyway, you can't expect people to pay for high value items if they don't want it/can't afford it. Just bite your tongue and relist it.

You think requesting the fvfs back and relisting just magically happens without any human input? If you buy from a business who do you think does things? The worker fairies?

As for the other comment, if you can't afford it then WTF do you click buy it now for? Do you go to Asda fill your trolley up, get to the checkout and after the ashier has put everything through the till say'oh I don't have enough money, don't want it anymore'?

No doubt most people will be happy in you not trading with them if you bid on/buy things with no intention of paying.
