    I would say that if you are going to enter into a lengthy exchange via Email/Ebay then it's probably for the best that you spell/grammar check as a matter of course.

    Unfortunately, no.

    It's quite a common affliction amongst eBay. Stupidity, that is. Here's something that littered my inbox today:

    Hello could I send my own courier to pick this up ? Short description of how this would happen at the end of auction if I win I pay via paypal just the auction end price you choose a day you want the package picked up from a home, work , or relatives address then I send you the label via email to print off and stick on the box . Or you can drop the parcel off at a local drop off point , list of these can be found on the MY HERMES website clicking the link find a parcel shop save waiting in at home if you prefer . After the auction I would send you a short check list basically to be completed to allow me to book a collection or drop off. The parcel is fully tracked and insured my end so there is nothing to worry about and you get a receipt from the courier to confirm this . if you don’t have a printer i could always post the label through the post . Benefits to you are no postage costs or arranging delivery your auction will get a higher price if i bid can you agree ?
    Not the worst, but still...... By the time I've looked at it, I don't care what it says.

    As for the back and forth between the two numpties, the creation of an account to moan in this thread, and the utter lack of comprehension that we don't care leading to barbed replies, well.......

    Hi I'm going to try and con you and here is how it will work. Except at the end I'll do a charge back and claim you never sent/delivered/or were in when I called.

    What a wanker.

    Yeah, his plan kinda unravelled when I pointed out that I couldn't even bid on his own listings due to "Cannot post to Scottish Highlands" because Hermes don't operate up here, and it'd be extra surcharge even if they subbed it to a local firm.....so about double what RM/PF cost.

    Yet to hear back from him.

    As to the seandn fella, he's Canadian judging by this. Some vendetta..... and utterly random why he showed up here.

    Can't help noticing he's left people negative feedback before because 'the seller never sent the item'; only for the seller to respond saying his address was wrong in his PayPal account. He did this three times over, on different occasions, leaving negative feedback each time.

    Seems like a reasonable, switched on fellow.

    Actually a lot of his positive feedback makes mention of the seller resolving a shipping problem - I'm guessing they're the ones who relented and sent out a second item or a refund?

    He's either made the same error about 20 times over or he's on the take. Bit rich of him to take issue with the seller over it in any case.

    I want to comment on a SELLER on ebay: GUINEVEREP. She sold me a very expensive chess set that cost me $200.00. Her picture was very distant and only had one pic, but she listed that it had never been used and was in the original case, and I believed her. When I got it, it was missing two very important pieces, that I can't pick up anywhere else. I tried working with her. She refused to accept a return, with me paying for sending it back. She was very nasty about it. She contacted Ebay and convinced them I shouldn't be able to return the item. WATCH OUT FOR THIS SELLER. Total SCAM!
  • Deleted user 5 June 2015 08:21:16
    @Deleted user maybe you should leave feedback on her account rather than on forums, as she has 100% positive feedback on eBay and the photo shows all the pieces in the box.

    I run a large ebay store for a living. If you just raised a case sayings its not as described they would have had to take it back. Were missing/not being told something here. Can't think of a situation where ebay would side with someone selling something faulty?

    Is this some sitcom crossover where Kramer goes to Seattle to meet Frasier Crane, then later yells racist abuse at some innocent bystanders?

    What are the alternatives to ebay these days? I'm sick of all the forced monthly selling limits, it's impossible to move the stuff I need to move.

    (No collection websites please)

    Selling limits ? Can't you just request an increase ? Think it was one of the first things I did, but I suppose it depends on what your current level is.
  • Deleted user 29 June 2015 17:32:07
    I should add its the category limited rather than selling amount. I can list £3,500.00 per month, but limited to 2 items in the same category every 30 days.

    It's retarded.
  • Deleted user 31 July 2015 18:06:18
    Not eBay but I think I've been done over by a member on hotukdeals. Purchased an Xbox one off them and it turned up looking good but has a faulty disc drive and pad is making loads of noise with vibration being decidely off on it.

    Any road I hope his lack of contact is due to being away or something but I have a feeling I've been had.

    I repaired my original PS3 using the know method of heat-gun (desgined to blow hot air to melt paint from woodwork). The PS3 worked fine, but I decided to sell it on ebay with about 12 games. It sold. Taking into account the games and the console, the buyer got a good deal.

    3 months later, the buyer got in touch, as the PS3 had died on them. I told them to go get it fixed. They wanted their money back. I explained the situation to ebay, and they were on my side :)
    If you mentioned in the listing it was recently repaired by heat gun fair enough. If you didn't you are a dreadful human being.

    That was only ever a temp fix so whatever way you swing it you sold the guy a faulty ps3 without telling him which is a shitty thing to do.

    Im not casting the first stone though, I have done plenty of shitty things in my time.

    Fucking hell, eightbitboy.... If you sell something on eBay, or anywhere else for that matter, you need to be honest about the condition!
    One the rare occasions where ebay are on the seller's side when they shouldn't be
  • Deleted user 1 August 2015 06:18:48
    @eightbitboy forget what eBay say. Put yourself in the buyers shoes. How would you feel if you brought a console that died within 3 months because the sellers had temporarily fixed it before passing it on.

    I would want to return the goods and you know you would too

    I pay, the seller posts out the game, there's no manual.

    You sold this game with a listing that specified that the manual was there, I inform the seller. I've seen this scenario play out so many times.

    I get a surprise this time though, he tries to talk his way out of it. This is a first, I think to myself, let's play out some rope and see where this goes… This is a second printing that didn't come with a manual, he says. Publishers are phasing out manuals, didn't you know?

    Demolishing his web of fibs and making this monkey perform has provided more amusement than the crappy game ever would. I rate the seller a shifty fellow, but highly amusing.

    Does he think he'll get away with it, and that eBay won't notice he edited the listing?

    You can't edit a listing 12 hours before it closes and definitely not after it closes.

    I haven't bothered opening a case yet, there's no point getting ebay involved if somebody is reasonable, if it comes to that it's an open and shut case.

    I hope you get it sorted the easy way :) I still don't see the logic in acting the way that person is, when all the evidence they've set up is 100% against themselves.
