would you buy from a ebay seller with 0 feedback?

38
Found 23rd May 2012
He has sold 56 says 43 still avalible but hasnt had anyone feedback yet. All he is selling is a doll pram for £14.98 but everyone else is selling between £35 and £70. I would love to get my little girl it but cant be doing with the hastle of paypay refunds. Seems like a back of the lorry job to me.

Oh and only joined the 18th of this month

yea i would buy , what have you got to lose really? i know its a little hassle but you will always get your money back if it doesnt work out

If you pay with PayPal you are covered obviously.. but wouldn't risk it personally.

you got to start somewhere i guess. also as you say s/he joined on the 18th and its only the 23rd so the items s/he. has sold may not have arrived at the address of the customers and therefore they have not left feedback. just wait a while for those to leave feedback to give you some peace of mind

Wouldn't bother myself, free postage as well, no way are you going to get that pram delivered for £15 imo.

Express delivery from outside of the UK too. (for £15 oO)

Not the most wise option but Paypal might cover you. Might.

personally i would buy if you think your saving money. they might turn out to be a really good seller but only just joined ebay to sell on. you never know paypal surely will recover your money if it is a scam

"If it's too good to be true, it probably is"

Listen to your brain, not your wallet mate is it really worth the risk?

why not email the seller and ask to collect, if genuine they would be happy to, cannot see how the seller would be making anything here, but who knows stranger things have happened, as a new seller would have thought all paymets would be on hold till feedback has been left

I would buy - after all you know you are covered. I would not be doing it if it was a £100+ product though. I have had many bargains with new sellers like these, although sometimes you have to hold their hand through the process.

Often scam listings are too good to be true. You either get nothing or a piece of string sent with a tracking number to validate that something has been sent. Then you are expected to return the piece of string via a fully trackable service at your own cost. 9/10 the foreign seller won't have received your item back so you get no refund and are out of pocket the postage costs too.

See you post another message in a few weeks time about how it has gone pear shaped, hope not but most probably will due. Too many negatives (0 feedback, express delivery from outside UK, unbelievable pricing etc)

Have got some real bargains risking on 0 feedback members items, like someone else said we all had to start at 0 and not everyone in The world is out to scam you(so I like to believe!) Grab the bargain and if it doesn't work out claim your money back.

what is the item number?

Thing is I know loads of people that have got a job lot in and listed on ebay with 0 feedback as its the best thing to do to get rid quick but then there are scammers in the world but you are covered

it wasnt sending the payment through at all not just saying unregistered it was just sitting there waiting?

£15.00 and free postage from outside the UK............................

yeah right....



Nice tidy > £800 profit for the new member on eBay. Hope you get your item but I wouldn't have risked it personally.

56 could have been sold in one day and therefore there may not have been chance for delivery and appropriate feedback to be made.

Personally I would wait until I saw some feedback before buying.

Yes there are rights under Paypal etc but sometimes the hassle of problems afterwards doesn't make the purchase worthwhile for the difference in money.

That really is quite pathetic.

Care to share your ebay usernames so we can report you for no reason?

Some people need to get a life.

This would usually mean the e-mail used is not registered to a PayPal account, the seller would be informed by e-mail and would be instructed to open an account in order to collect the payment.

They have all sold in the last couple of days, so not enough time to receive and leave feedback.
