    Need Ebay help..and paypal help.

    I bought a zune 80 on ebay (item number 250521510502).
    It came without any packaging or the headphones, broken (wouldn't save or play music) and scratched. I opened a paypal claim and got the response:

    After carefully reviewing your case, we've determined that you'll be
    eligible for a refund (including handling and postage) once you've returned
    the merchandise to the seller.

    Does this mean the cost of return posting? What posting should I use?

    As the value is over £39 you should use special delivery (probable cost about £6) this way its fully tracked, so long as weight matches up with the original item paypal won't care even if you sent a brick back.

    Do you have to fill in a customs form (he had to when sending it to me)?

    Did you get it from a uk seller ? If so you don't have to fill nothing in accept return address. Plus send it by Special Next Day Delivery.

    oooo hard one have you still got the customs paper work if so re use it and take the parcel to royal mail sorting office for advice or use the option above sounds funny

    Ahh forget what I said above as you didn't say it had to be returned overseas, not sure of the case now as to what method is best.

    Think I am going to go for
    Royal Mail International Signed For™

    when you go to the post office say you want it "international signed for postage" costs a little bit more but you shouldnt need a customs form - just make sure your address is on the back of it ( marked UK also ! ) you will get a tracking number too...
    hope this helps !

    This really sucks (going to be left out of pocket for his problem). Have to formulate the worst line of feedback I can think of now.

    you should be able to claim back your costs too!

    Dont do that, that only insures it up to the postal company, and NOT to the sellers house.

    Use royal mail AIRSURE.

    Dont go OTT on it has he may be able to get ebay to remove the comment, stick to facts and nothing personal about seller,

    Something like:

    Arrived in very used and non-working order with the accesories missing.


    avoid something like:

    May the chicken of doom darken your doorstep for being a shyster:thumbsup:

    you will need to fill out a customs sticker (post office has them) for the USA

    Its gonna cost a fair bit to send international signed for to the USA (£23.44 for 1kg)

    And it is only tracked in the UK so you could still get scammed by the seller as he can say he never got it back.

    Airsure is £24.14 for 1kg but even they are not signed for.

    Airsure items are electronically tracked to their destination, but are not signed for on delivery.

    ebay and paypal seems to be having a lot of problems like this these days.

    Airsure is the way to go. Not sure if you'll get the return postage back though.

    You won't get return postage back unless seller does it off their own back.

    then the seller will have to pay import duties so will probably refuse delivery :thinking:

    I am still in contact with the seller, trying to come with a reasonable resolution.
