Last week I sold an item on eBay (expensive item), the item sold and was paid for within 3 minutes of the auction via PayPal. Great up to now, but afterwards, as the buyer only lives about 30 miles from me I tried repeatedly to email them so I could personally deliver the item to them. I thought this would be best because of the postal strikes. After 6 emails and 3 eBay messages they never contacted me, so posted last Saturday morning Special Delivery.
On Monday the Post Office tried to deliver the parcel but got no answer, so left a calling card and took the parcel to the sorting office. Now 4 days on and it still hasn't been picked up and I'm now wondering if this person is going to wait for the parcel to be sent back to me and then contact eBay to get a refund.
It's like they've dropped off the face of the earth or they are going for a chargeback from PayPal as they haven't received it.
What do you think?
