Normally very slow this time of year, I was thinking the same but haven't bothered putting anything on.
#2
I am selling quite a bit on ebay lately...people are buying quickly to make sure the dispatch of the item is fast. I am worried too though about people complaining if we get snow and items don't get to them on time!!! Might not be worth the hassle....Going well atm though :)
#3
was wondering that too, but I'm guessing there be another free listing weekend after Xmas....for all those unwanted presents that are likely to be given.
#4
Depends what you are selling BUT people will buy i.e. on Christmas Eve and expect it on Christmas Day.... No matter how many warnings you put in your listing they will ignore the weather and Royal Mail delivery issues.
Advise don't do it unless you are ready for bad feedback from the same morons who can't read.

Free listing weekends are nothing special - you get done on the final value fees!

Sold a bit last week or so, not as much last couple days tho, but am having problems with delivery, people asking when posted/not arrived yet etc

The DSRs have nailed EBAY before with slow mail people were unlikely to neg you but with the DSRs they will mark you right down. As for listing for the last few years the best prices seem to be just after christmas into February probably cause more people are indoors over this period. Most of the stuff i've listed last few days has sold or has bids.
#7
Im having trouble too with the post being delayed with the weather but its also xmas so gonna be more so and people dont give you chance. Does anyone know if its me or the buyer who contacts royal mail for a refund after 15 days? Im guessing with recent disruptions that the 15 day period is not going to be valid but the buyer wont listen.

Sold quite a bit in the last week - moving house in a fortnight - all of it is buyer collect though (big stuff). I usually buy in January - you can get some really good deals as everyone is broke.

Cheers i thought it was but then never had to do one before, still the buyer wont take it that it has to be 15 working days and its only been 9, no one has any patience any more

I sold Tickle Me Elmo's one year and had a Special Delivery next day option but 'they' selected second class post. My listings had warnings AND I emailed (not auto junk) all buyers to give them the option to change and pointed out postal problem. It was these very buyers that emailed back asking where item was only 2 days later. Do NOT under estimate how many idiots there are out there.

To be honest you forget the rules.
Explain to the buyer that the item is probably at the local sorting office (happens all the time) or with a neighbour and that Royal Mail do not class an item as lost BUT you are happy to give him a refund on the understanding that they return any item delivered AND that they email you prior to the refund and clearly state that they want an item refund and would be happy to confirm non delivery to Royal Mail. You did get a certificate of posting - didn't you?
#12
I had one a couple of months ago open a non receipt dispute 1hour after buying the item, needless to say paypal wouldnt do out about it and i had to send the item and wait till the buyer got it before they would release the money. theres loads out there just wish you could filter them out lol x
#13
Problem is this weather could be set to last well into January you might delaying for quite a while

Yes i got the cert of posting, but whats to say i ask that then i refund and they keep the items and not send them back?? What would them emailing me to confirm non delivery do? sorry never had lost items before x

It would help you get compensation from the RM. Whenever i have anything go missing i get the receipiant to mail me to confirm they have not received the item it seems to make the claim go smoother.
#16
Oh right i get you now, thanks will do that, one other thing, what do they refund you? is it just the postage or the full order? It was about £10 i think x

Postage refund plus compensation for the loss of the item

I sold something yesterday and it sold within 5 hours. I did a cash on collection basis, theyve still to collect it but itll come in handy. Was over £400 woohoo me
#19
It is a while since I have had to do it but I think you are covered up to £39.00 when I claimed I provided my invoice of what I had sold and quotes of the item. Obviously they will check the weight e.t.c. so just make a genuine claim BUT it is probably going to turn up.
Also note only certain items are allowed to be posted so make sure you read about it on the RM website.

oops I hadn't seen newbie1001 post on pg 2.
