I hope item not received disputes don't count since now if a buyer asks where the item is and selects "I haven't received my item" as the choice it automatically opens a dispute and I still want to keep my regular top rated status.
Also starting November 1st to December 31st, you have to accept returns to January 31st to keep the 20% FVF discount. I don't care if it is the holidays with people buying gifts or not, an up to 90 day return policy is ridiculous especially with video games where something like a sports game can drop in value a lot in that time period. It won't matter to me since I lost the 20% discount when I refused to have a 1 day handling policy and accept returns (I know you can be forced into it anyway) but I feel bad for any sellers who gets taken advantage of by this.
While a 90 day return policy does scare me, according to eBay I sold 506 items in the last 30 days which IMO is a fair amount. Do you want to know how many returned due to not liking it, beating it already, etc.? Zero, zip, none. In fact in everything I ever sold on eBay it has happened ONCE. Now I don't know if that is just luck (though I sure do attract plenty of crazies more on that later) or if eBay buyers just don't return as much. I hope it is the latter and not just luck as that will suck come the holidays.
As for my latest story of crazies I sold a game on Friday afternoon, shipped it Friday afternoon and shows "Delivered" yesterday. Now today the buyer messages me the following "i have not received my item!!!!!!!!! the tracking says it is delivered i have nothing!!!!! what the f*** scamming business are you running i want a full refund and pay pall me $40$ or i will leave you neg a 0 dsr and all my friends will too and you will be off ebay and out of business!!!!!"
Crazy? Or just fucking crazy?
