    Sorry, but this is yet another..........

    ....fleabay advice thread.

    The OH ordered a CANON EF-S 55-250mm lens for me as a present last week from a power seller, very good feedback. A response was sent for receipt of payment and nothing was heard after that. Getting a bit concerned as shipment was supposed to be within 3 working days of payment via special delivery he emailed them this afternoon getting this response,

    Hello,
    Thank you for contacting us.
    Unfortunately we have unexpected delay on your shipment We
    received wrong product from vendor We reordered your item
    to vendor It would take about a week I am so sorry for the
    inconvenience

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.

    They appear to have been selling something that was not yet in their possession. Bearing in mind they have already had our money in their account for a week is there anything we can do. Should we just sit back and wait?

    dont sound good

    I think loads of full time ebayers do that. Not sure if they're allowed to tho. It sounds legit to me, you're well within the paypal dispute time anyway, so if you don't get it another week or so, ask for a refund. Unless you've changed your mind because of the wait, in which case he should refund you anyway, if you're lucky and ask nicely :thumbsup:

    Isn't it against ebays rules? that you must have the product in hand, so thats why dropshipping isn't allowed?

    A lot of "Power Sellers" are in fact Dropshippers
    means you pay them, they order direct from manufacturer/importer who then ships the items direct to you
    It sounds like a Dropshipper to me.

    Give them a few days see if they do what they said, You can wait up to 3 or more weeks for some Ebay things although this is rare, if you havent received it in say 5 days claim a refund through paypal

    I done exactly that when i was on ebay

    after 10 days,file an item not received with paypal or ask seller for refund

    If as you say they have good feedback then I wouldn't worry.. either sit back and wait or as the others have said claim the money back, I'm sure the seller will refund anyway.

    you can always neg them when it is all sorted out and let others know the problems you had

    if you dont want to wait the week ask for a refund

    Sounds to me like they are being honest with you, if it was me I wouldn't admit to never having the item.

    How much did you pay?

    I'm looking at a Canon 55-250mm IS lens at the mo for £159 (which is a great price.) Just cant make my mind up as ideally I wanted a longer focal length,

    Yup, same as I'm supposed to be getting. Probably sourced from same place, though they might actually have theirs :roll:

    Well if your getting it cheaper, that is all that matters (it could possibly even be the shops eBay account).

    Other than a 55-200mm lens ]here and the 250mm on Amazon for around £200 new... I think you got a pretty good price, guess you will just have to wait it out hehe.

    ---edit

    Just found ]this out of stock now, not sure if thats any good but it does seem a decent price. Closest next one is from ]here - not sure if these are any good for Guv?
