While true, those are arguments I WOULD make. Technically eBay IS a store, where both new and used items are sold.

Ebay doesn't sell anything directly. Like I said they only facilitate private sales.

To add to the sales tax discussion, it's annoying they are charging sales tax on non taxable items. I ordered 2 shirts and wasn't expecting to see sales tax added. In my state almost all clothes are non taxable. I realize it's not easy to have it set up for items not to be taxed when in each state it is different but other sites have it working correctly.

That's another reason I keep saying the way it's being handled is ridiculous. It's absolutely ridiculous to expect everyone to account for every state's bullshit. If I go to a store in Texas, I pay Texas sales tax. Nice and simple. Why not do the same if I buy from an ebay seller in Texas? That's what people should be advocating. Simplicity in tax code.

That’s the same way antique malls and thrift stores often operate, being comprised of many vendors, yet they charge sales tax there.

Really Ebay? Really? They took down my Xbox with XBMC and 320GB hdd.... but they had no problem with my 360 with an XK3Y modchip in it and over 40 games on it.....

Guy just asked me why the speaker on my Talk Boy doesn't work.... idk but I mentioned that in the post.

Guy left neutral feedback because the package took 15 days to arrive.... yeah because I can control where the box goes after the post office takes it!

You're talking about a 30-year-old system. There are adults now who never used a composite cable. If you were buying an 8-track or LaserDisc player, would you be sure you knew what you needed to hook up the system?

Stop! There is no reason for anyone under the age of 40 to not be tech savvy enough to plug a thing into a tv! There are tons of Youtube videos if you cant figure it out....as simple as the task is! The person buying this is probably someone who had a Genesis or is a gamer and most likely tech savvy! The point of my post was if they read the description of whats included instead of just looking at the picture they would have their answer!

I had someone leave me a negative feedback many years ago saying the cover of the game case was faded. There was (of course) pictures of the game showing any and all wear. I also stated this fading in the description. Never ceases to amaze me what some people can't comprehend.

If you aren't willing/able to deal with people of various degrees of inteligence/knowledge of what you are selling then I suggest you don't sell to individuals and just deal with pawn shops or places like Gamestop.

Its always something! Lady sent me a message and said she wasnt leaving any feedback because her beer stein had a little black mark at the bottom and a "nick" in the paint on the top......... ITS 37 YEARS OLD! These were hand painted, obviously marks that had been there since Day 1! Never once did I claim the stein to be pristine mint condition! Never once did she ask for more pictures. The fact that the stein arrived in 1 piece in 2 days should be enough for a Positive feedback! Its like if I removed the Positive I left her because she didnt pay right away! Bitch is going on the blocked list.

eBay has just been glitched out lately.

Had a buyer cancel an order. I was refunded listing fee but still shows I need to ship. It is also listed under cancelled listings and I am unable to select cancel myself.

Also have a buyer return they initiated on may 6. They never shipped and eBay gave them until 6/3 to ship. It is just annoying they haven’t closed it out yet. Pre covid they would just close case after a week if buyer doesn’t ship back. The reason they wanted to return: LEGO set I sold built had pieces come apart in shipment.

In regard to feedback, as a seller I quit giving feedback until they leave some for me.

You get tired of only 4/10 buyers leaving feedback....and you guessed it now only about 4/10 get feedback from me ;)

I have been doing that for the past 15 years. I had left over 300 more feedback before I realized I was hardly getting any back. Feedback is more important for the seller to give the buyer more confidence in buying from that seller. I almost want to say it can get as low as 25% of buyers leaving feedback for me at times. Whatever, a sale is a sale.

Lady just sent me a message about the Pokemon 20th Anniversary plush she bought.... complaining about the dented bag it comes in....that's quite obvious in my pics..... and she called it dusty and musty.... ouch! Never had anything called musty!

 

7/8/20- still have that Negative on my account and ..........ANOTHER NEGATIVE..........wtf is going on with these Buyers?! In the past 16 years of selling on there Ive only ever received 1 negative and got Ebay to remove it. Now Ive got 2 in less than 3 weeks! Sold one of those DonJoy cold therapy machines, item was tested with an ac adapter and pad I had for another machine then cleaned. I bought a brand new ac adapter and XL cold pad for it before selling it. I took their offer which was $50 under my listed price. They get it and said it doesnt pump water. I tell them it worked before I shipped it out and I dont offer refunds. I offered them a few tips to try and they said they were talking to DonJoy about it. They even said they didnt want a refund or return, "we just want a working machine as advertised". I ended up offering half the cost back just to cover the cost of the brand new pad.....they accepted.....then left a negative. Im now worried about anything I ship out at this point! Its crazy!

Moron left a neutral because the 20 year old PC game he bought wouldn't install on his modern PC. Sent him a link about getting it going on Windows 10. Didn't hear back from him so I assumed it worked. See the netural this morning that just says "disappointed". Maybe do some fucking research or ask questions before buying stuff!

Better than the retards that force a return for it. Happened twice for me. Good thing neither were very expensive, but it's fucking annoying.
