I sold an item on ebay 280290010413.
Now i am very good with my listings , take lots of photos ETC. the buyer recieved the item today and is throwing a wobbly cos they say its blue not white like i said in the listing .
so could someone look at my listing and tell me is the furniture is blue ( other then the detailing on the tops)

That is white! Where they looking lol

Looks white to me.....

looks 'mostly' white to me

It's quite obviously white with some blue trimmings.

tell them to PO literally, they can see the item and the colour .......... they have no recourse

tell them if they want money back then open a paypal dispute :?

Looks white to me too.

Deffo white with a touch of blue

Would paypal just tell them to stick it as well? Can't believe people can actually be that pathetic about things.

mmmm let me see... white in the listing bit...check:thumbsup:
white in the most excellent pictures ... check...:thumbsup:
and I understand white means white check ...:thumbsup:

buyer ... buffon ..check :thumbsup:

dont be worried about the 100% thingy, looking at how you list your gear I would buy stuff off you:?

Don't refund, that's a good price for it even if he is wearing blue tinted glasses.

I've taken a quick look for you - the eBay post is quite specific that its an auction for "...a white Dining room furniture set comprising of, Dining table, 4 chairs and a stunning cabinet with opening doors and drawers".

The only area I can see blue in is on top of the small dining table, which is there for a small painting of a swan on a pond - looks white to me!

i wouldnt go about it that way as you will most certainly receive a negative feedback.

tell the buyer if they are not happy with the item to return it at their own cost(recorded) and you will refund them the purchase price as long as its received in the same condition as it was sent.

they will back down as it will cost the purchase price to return it

If the item you sent them is the item in the listing then I dont see how they can throw a strop, more like they are trying to get a reduced price from you.

You didnt do anything wrong as far as I could see from the listing.

the person who is complaining has items for sale

go get him

I can't see anything. Bloody internet filters at work !!!!!!!!!

Good listing a lot of time a effort, but prepare yourself for a neg as the buyer sounds like the sort of idiot that will leave one out of spite

pink.

beat him to it and leave him negative

You taken like 5 + photos of it, and he can't work out if its white or not?? I just take 1 photo of my items and thats it!!

And the item suddenly turned "blue" ????? .......

Cream

By the way, sort your ME page before ebay start asking questions.

ah I have the answer... the buyer thought they were buying the carpet .. the items were placed on:w00t:

Those are better pictures than I ever took when selling stuff.

Seems nowadays people dispute after receiving items hoping to get some money back, hear about it more an more.

i just joined so i could reply lol

anyway your listing is FAULTLESS ! your feedback speaks for itself , like has been mentioned , only blue i can see is on the table , ie the water the ducks on ! theres always a chance he has got two sellers mixed up ? also the refund option is entirely upto you , i look at it as he got what was advertised , and paypal wont even refund this ! and if he does leave negative .........................big deal your feedback will drop to 99.9% .......and you will soon get it back to a 100% and you can always follow up his feed back ! with whatever you feel is right !

Looks white to me...

But even though they're being a numpty, offer them the refund of the auction price only (minus postage both ways), once it's received... can't say fairer than that :thumbsup:

Edit: I see from the post above you've already done that, lol!

That's ridiculous....

Actually, looking at their recent purchases, they've bought LOADS of doll house items. I wonder if they're getting confused with someone elses parcel / item?

Get them to send you a photo of the item, showing the blue. I think they might be confusing your item with another they've bought and received....

Tell him to FO & block his messages..............

Id say the furniture is white too.
his/her reason for refund is unreasonable unless he provides proof. No chance of ANYTHING (edit: bold for better effect) if this doesn't happen.
If he/she is reading this, then obviously he/she is being ignorant.

Be careful though, if he sends a blank envelope (but tracked), you get nowt & Paypal will refund all his cash.............

Since when?

Also I have to say, photographing a light blue object against a dark blue backround would make it appear white as it would create an optical illusion. Whether that's happened here or not is not for me to judge:)

Oh and for anybody still watching, what colour are these?

only flaw to that answer is , what colour are the items in the white box ? and what colour is the wardrobe in her last pic compared to the tiles in the background ?

also if the BUYER is reading these posts !

then post YOUR own pics of the items ! and let us be the judge !

considering you bought the items , going by the pics and we are judging them by the pics ! so your saying the same as us , that the items are white in the pics ? if you have nowt to hide get them up or shut up !

Well some of yours do have a blue 'tinge' but that could be from the towel/reflected light/flash whatever. As I said, i'm just showing how pictures can trick the eye especially if you look at something that you expect to see:thumbsup:

Missed you post mate. Yeah i'll own to the first point but as I said, it's all very subjective and the lighting conditions aren't that brilliant imho. Likewise i'd like to see photos taken by the buyer, against a white background:) As I said originally they looked more cream than blue or white to me, due to the light.:)

get the buyer to return it at his own cost and refund his money(not the return postage i might add) if all is the same and move on after banningb him for all eternity
