A cautionary tale: I just sold my Samsung S10 on ebay, and shipped it using Packlink because it said "eBay shipping with Packlink" (although an ebay rep later said they have absolutely no affiliation with Packlink at all). Firstly, packlink is just a broker and you'll end up with another courier (hermes, ups, etc). I didn't have a printer and packlink seemed like a quick/easy option with printing the label in store at drop off - which I did on 8 June.

Long story short, the package arrived on 10 June but had been tampered with somewhere along the way. The bottom had been cut out, the phone was removed, and replaced with rubber weights about the same weight as the phone.

Since distance selling rules and ebay policies don't protect the seller at all, I now have to refund my buyer 350GBP they paid - immediately.

Although I did buy the full, additional insurance for 10 quid extra, and I filed a claim at the packlink site, I fully expect the claim to be denied without cause and to have to take them to small claims court to get the value of the item and the money I paid to them back. The ebay reps I spoke with both said that I should expect to wait OVER A MONTH before I even hear from them. They have terrible reviews and I wish I'd just gotten myself a face mask so I could ship this at my local, busy royal mail post office. Packlink was even more expensive than the post office. I'm kicking myself and will probably continue to for a long time. It also used hermes which I didn't know until now is a terrible company with 0 customer support (try to find a chat button that isn't a pre-programmed bot with 3 replies before 'goodbye', contact email, or phone number - you'll never speak to a human at hermes). NEVER AGAIN.

In the meanwhile I've wasted several hours filing police reports, marking the item as stolen on several IMEI blacklist checker sites, calling my provider for them to blacklist the IMEI, marking it as stolen on the Immobilise property register, and reading up on my rights in this situation.

In the end I think I just might not sell on ebay anymore. You have 0 protections from PayPal (except against chargebacks), 0 protections from ebay as a seller (everything is always in the favour of the buyer), and they sell you scummy shipping services from third parties that they make a commission on, but make it seem like it's a company you can trust by saying "eBay SHIPPING WITH Packlink"

In sum, avoid.

UPDATE: Packlink replied via "Zendesk" (customer service contracted out) with 1 line: "This is to inform you that the parcel on query has been delivered." meaning they obviously haven't read my claim against theft, nor will they honor their postage insurance I paid an extra 10 pounds for. I have to take them to small claims court.

Please for your own sake - avoid this company like the plague

Packlink are awful to deal with when a parcel gets damaged. You can't deal with the carrier direct - & they're nothing to do with eBay.

They took 3 months - after chasing -to advise my claim had been denied - despite clear photo evidence showing the damage & very good packaging. Was such an appalling decision - eBay advised me to file a complaint with the ombudsman - and indicated packlink have been a nightmare like this from day one.

Cheaper to buy direct from carrier - especially UPS - although admittedly, not as convenient.

This is a good deal for sending low value items - otherwise for peace of mind - avoid packlink.

Packlink like to lie about the weight and dimensions of your parcel and then charge you more a month later through PayPal.

If they do this you can appeal and win if you say they're lying and they have no proof (because they dont)

You don't have to choose Hermes.. can pick UPS etc. via Packlink too

Woah! £1 selling fees and half price UPS!! ( wont use Hermes again as failed massively regards collections for a 3rd time) AWESOME!!
Great deal until they slap you with a £4.99 excess size charge.
I got hit with 7 of them weeks after I sent them.
They were classed as over sized as they didnt comply with the small royal mail size but these were sent with UPS!

I'm inclined to agree with you. It's borderline illegal I'm sure, because of how it's presented on their website. However, ebay completely wiped their hands of it and will take no responsibility. They told me to take it up with packlink directly.

The thing is, when you go to the packlink website it asks you for the REFERENCE number beginning with "GB-" for the shipment - something ebay doesn't provide in your "My Ebay" or "seller" page. It's not the same as the tracking number, which is the only thing ebay provides you. Only after talking to ebay reps over chat did they find out that you have to go to delivery.ebay.co.uk/pri…all to find out what the GB number is.

Anyway, ebay have said that I should refund the buyer immediately and wait a month or longer to hear back from packlink about the possibility of ever getting my money back (again, despite me buying extra insurance through packlink).

Don't be fooled, if you sell on ebay you have 0 protection from ebay, paypal, and likely from the scummy shipping broker packlink

- see my photo 3 posts down that shows explicitly "eBay Shipping powered by Packlink" - so you'd figure ebay should take some responsibility

Just been through lengthy process getting 135 back from Hermes due to loss of parcel .You can speak direct but only get somewhere once you have filed a claim form and 14 days have passed .
They did refund my loss .You can log complaint on Martin Lewis resolver but you will have a long wait .Do you think buyer could of made up the ' weights thing " a bit daft now you have blocked the phone but you never know on fleabay.
Totally understand you have zero protection as a seller as only the buyer can issue a chargeback against eBay PayPal .
I would avoid Hermes at all costs for anything now over 50 and use UPS who employ professional drivers but phone wise Royal Mail special delivery is a must .
Hope it ends well my friend
