  • I think Im done with EBay.

    To say Im irritated is beyond words

    I sold an item on eBay that was brand new from the store. I never used it or opened it. I couldnt return it to the store because the card I used to buy it was compromised and I had to cancel card. The value of the item was over their no receipt cash back limit. So I was stuck

    Sold it on eBay, 20 days later the buyer states it was used an inferior product. Complete BS they sent pics of proof it was used and all it showed was white scuffs on black rubber from foam packing. Then tried to say they have proof it was inferior.

    I pointed out that the sale stated no refunds and if they didnt like the quality of the product to contact the manufacturer. They refused to do so. I asked why they waited so long to contact me they stated it was a gift and wasnt opened until the 20th. Also they had an unboxing video. Who does that unless they plan on scamming ?

    Well many emails later and now the eBay deadline and eBay ruled in their favor. I need to refund them .

    I dont see how eBay see this as cut and dry. I have no appeals. My word against theirs. I dont get it

    It seems the buyer has all the rights on Ebay now. Sellers can't even leave negative feedback.

    Lots of youtubers do unboxing vids, so maybe they just bought it for the views and had no use for it.

    Hopefully you can get the item back and sell locally

      I used to do over 40k a year on Ebay with boats. Then the scammers learned the exact thing they did to you.

      I had a similar situation happen, except they said it was damaged in shipping. I had sent it USPS and they always provide a letter if damaged which the seller could not produce.

      Ebay still sided with them and kicked me off Ebay for it. I had 100% positive feedback and over 1000 items sold.

      It has become a scam site. Only good if you are a buyer.

      Try selling on Amazon. I did it a few times and it worked just fine.

        I know many people who quit selling most items on ebay for that very reason, unless they are unique individual items. I would leave very honest feedback for the buyer so others can be warned of their actions.

          Unboxing vids, WTF? If I took vids unboxing all the stuff I buy over the net that is about all I would have time to do. Most definitely sounds like a cheap ass scammer. [!]

          I have not used Ebay in years, lots more options out there, but I have to admit I don't do a lot of selling. Sorry Brandon, dishonest people suck.

            I sent reels in for service paid and the reels came back the same. 6 months later and lots of letter. Fought for a refund with paypal. Get a check then the guys claims his account was hacked and they took the check back. I was out 285 bucks for reels. Scammers suck.

            No worries dave I do all my stuff now. Much easier

              Like has been said, Scam-Bay is no longer a trustworthy site to trust with your information, money, or time.

              After having and using an account there for many years and thousands of transactions, ahaving a 100% rating, I shut down my ScamBay account several years ago due to having a similar issue, and the growing numbers of untrustworthy scammers there.

              Sorry to hear about your issues ...

                Wow, have to admit the most I do on Ebay is purchase goods, and not very often at that. I have had great luck on Craigslist, but then I only purchase on site after inspecting any goods. Never knew of the increasing issues with the Ebay site. Won't say the company I work for, but we do work very hard to stop scammers, fraudsters, etc. And it's not Ebay (oh, I do live in Seattle WA).

                  I would assume that they at least have to return it to you in order to give them a refund.

                    Correct but if the new item was swapped out for a used damaged item then it doesnt really matter

                      So one of the things we have noticed is that sellers have started protecting themselves (no idea if sellers from Ebay do this). They are making videos of the item to be sold, packaging it in to the shipment material with packing, taping the box shut, with the shipping label on the box. That way there is little doubt what went out, and the video can be used as verification. I don't know if Ebay would recognize the recording, but it does make for a strong defense. It really does suck that sellers need to cover themselves.

                        The pendulum swung from people selling known junk on eBay screwing buyers, so eBay instituted very strong buyer protection policies since this is what drives their revenue.

                        Knock on wood and with 1281 eBay combined buying and selling ratings, I'm still at 100% positive.

                        I think eBay needs to re-examine their approach as they are pissing off many buyers.
