I got more books in today's mail. All in great shape. One seller even threw in a bonus book from the series I ordered a few books of. I got a full refund, including shipping, from the seller who sent me a water damaged book. Contacted the seller who didn't send me a brand new game as advertised, but haven't heard back yet. If I don't hear back by the end of tomorrow I'll probably open a case.

Huh.

I ordered a bunch of books and a game from different sellers. The total order (after free shipping code) was 11.xx.

Today I got an e-mail that the game was canceled and I was refunded. The funny part is according to the site, they refunded my credit card 6 dollars--the price of the game with shipping--instead of the 2.xx I actually paid for it after the free shipping code.

So...free money, I guess.


Yeah, a couple of the items were canceled on my second order. One refunded me the price of the book plus shipping, and the other refunded me the price of the game plus 2 times the shipping cost. I don't know what that was about, but they basically payed me $2 to take 2 games and 3 books on that order.

I'll take it as compensation for half of my items being nowhere near the described condition.

got my 4 games. Neo contra, Red Ninja and Bloodrayne all came as listed. Looking Like New in fantastic condition.

Nightcaster however came with the case smashed to hell. THe disk itself looks pretty decent though. Im not sure if this happened in shipping or if it was shipped that way. It was only 2.00. Not really worth an exchange. Wonder if i should just dump negative feedback and let it be at that, or try contacting the seller. Sounds like i came out better than a lot of you

Nah, you guys will be fine. There were rumors on SD that some people either got cancellations/banned, but I think it was a load of bs.

I used 3 accounts (all registered before 2008 though) and all orders came through just fine, I even used the same CC on all 3 and received no word from Half.com/eBay, I seriously doubt those rumors were ever true.

Now if you made multiple accounts simply for to this, then I'm not so sure what they could possibly do. I haven't read up on their policies, but if you've just made 1 or 2 accounts, I don't see why they'd bother you.

Got my two PSP games in and they were both FAILS! My LocoRoco game ended up being a demo disc and my Tekken Dark Resurection ended up being SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo in a Tekken case. The good news is that I got refunds from both and they both ended up hving 3K+ feedback so they were most likley honest mistakes. I just wish they paid more attention to what they shipped out because now the free shipping is over:(

I miss this deal too.

The code DAD10 saves 10% off of a $50+ order. Not the best at all - but gives the illusion (sorta) of free shipping if you buy 2 newer/higher priced games (MW3, ME3, etc)...

Negative feedback for $2? If the guy was trying to screw you over by listing it "Like New" or whatever, then just let him know the case came smashed. If he's a good seller he'll try to make things right.

I never leave negatives (infact, I've only left 1 in the 5 years on eBay) unless the seller doesn't contact me or tries working out the issue with me.

Still waiting on one game and two music CDs. So far, everything's been great.

Got a sticker-infested N64 rental game for $0.75, and after a couple minutes w/ Goo Gone, you'd swear it was new.

Had the same thing happen to me. Havent looked at the bank account closely enough to see if the refund caused me to loose the free shipping on the other items though.

Just got my other batch of games, the two PS1 games I got came in absolutely prestine conditions. The only problem I have is that I got the wrong game for PS2. Got Budokai Tenkaichi instead of Budokai 2. Kinda wanted to endulge in some good ol' nostalgic moments.

You won't, how would it affect the rest if they have already been paid? I had two people refund me for games they didn't have anymore. I received the extra $3.50 shipping for each that I didn't even pay for. So basically got $7 free.

Has everyone received all of their stuff by now?

From all of my orders so far (I might be repeating some of this), I had to send one game back when the video game re-seller sent me something clearly used they tried to pass off as new. Still waiting for it to reach them before they'll issue me my refund. Got 1 book + shipping refunded for the seller not having it. Had another 2 books + shipping refunded when I emailed the sellers to let them know the books didn't match up to the condition they said it would.

Today I received a ton of books in the mail, and 1 was supposed to be a hardcover and they sent me a paperback advance copy with "not for resale" on it, and another was supposed to be "Very Good" but the book was warped into a U shape, which was just impressive for a hardcover of that size. So I emailed about those and I assume I'll get refunded.

The rest of the books from the massive order today were in just okay shape, but matched up with what's considered "Good." There were several mass market paperbacks that were pretty beat up. Had it not been for getting most of these books for $0.75 I'd be annoyed paying nearly $5 for the condition they arrived in had I had to pay for shipping. Most of them had $1 Goodwill price tags on them and the seller wasn't Goodwill. I figure $1 for the book according to the price tag, maybe $2 in actual shipping (if its shipped individually), and the Half fee is maybe a quarter or something, so the seller is maybe making $0.25 profit per book when it comes to these beat up mass market paperbacks. Probably a little more if they're bought all at once by someone like me. I guess you really have to be a high volume seller to make that worth your while.

I'm still waiting on 6 more items. 4 of which I've received emails saying they've shipped, but no DC numbers. 2 more are wild cards I may or may not ever get.

I have a couple items I'm still waiting for as well.

The beautiful thing is that there is really nothing to lose.

If I never get the items and get a refund it's all good because they will refund the extra shipping costs (which I didn't even pay) as well. I can apply the extra refund to another order or I can just keep the bonus refund.

I'm still waiting on about 9 items but all except for one of the others were in the condition they described. I also had two items refunded with one of the sellers actually still sending me the game due to forgetting to ship it.

I'm still waiting on two items out of ten.


The other day I got a box from amazon which I was surprise since I haven't ordered anything from them since April. I didnt want to open the box but I was maybe my wife bought me something. I open it up and it was a kettlebell workout book and it was sent to me by a the person I bought the book from half.com. I paid $9 for it on half and they paid $27 to send me a brand new book (the receipt was included), now that is customer service and satisfaction.

That's crazy... but like the person who said they got their item directly from Walmart.com, do you suspect it might have been a case of a stolen credit card?

I hope not and I called Amazon to double check and the seller used their credit card and they have alot of positives on both half and amazon.

Over the past week, I got all my books, games, and cds I ordered. Everything looked like the condition it was listed in. Now to go give positive feedback to all of them. This code was so awesome!

I do have to say....I sold about 9 games this past month (maybe cause of the free shipping) and only one person posted feedback. It really irks me cause I go out of my way to make sure everything is perfect in the transaction. And I don't sell a lot so I need that feedback in order to hopefully sell more.

Guybrush: At least I've learnt something from all of this.
Elaine: What's that?
Guybrush: Never pay more than 20 bucks for a game.

Part of the problem may be that new accounts have a 5 day waiting period after activating them for feedback purposes. And to activate new accounts for feedback, eBay has to call you with a PIN number. People who created several new accounts for this deal may not bother with all of that.

Send them a friendly reminder message - seriously. I have done this.

Just a simple "Feedback please! Thanks!" would suffice.

In my opinion, an approach that I think works well for most sellers I've dealt with is for them to follow up with an e-mail to ensure everything is satisfactory. And then to say something in the line of, "If you're happy with your purchase, please leave positive feedback."

Some word it better than others, but the general gist is to extend the reminder while also ensuring the buyer is happy. If they're not, then at least they have the opportunity to talk to the buyer about it.

I got all my items from 4 accounts but 1 dude sent me the wrong item and now it turned into a mess where the seller is saying that he will report me to ebay because "I threatened him". A claim was promptly filed with half.com and a copy of his email was included because this seller is going crazy. All of this for a $4 CD... I know. What a douche.
