Got one for you to add to the list. rayado100 2 weeks after he buys my DLC he pulls item not received BS. The worst part of it is this fool is selling the codes right now on ebay under the same ID. Now I know it's stupid of me to work on the honor system and send the codes via ebay messaging, but hell these are only a few $ and your never covered on DLC anyway. Reported it to ebay we'll see.

 

Buy the code back, pull the same stunt on him?

LMAO. wouldn't that be epic.

 

Then if he cancels the transaction, leave him negative feedback. Hahaha.

The thought had past my mind, but I'm not going to risk  fooling around on a $13 item. Not worth it. He got a bid last night anyway and I end up getting a message back this morning that he now has received the code and left me positive feedback. So hopefully this is over and he closes the case.

Unless something changed within the last few hours, as always, my shipping label fees are deducted from my PP account at the time the label is created.
IMHO I hope they don't change that; It would be a nightmare trying to keep my account balanced correctly if they billed shipping labels all at once at the end of the month



Yeah not sure what the hell agreement I clicked on.  I should look into cancelling it just in case.  I checked my Paypal account and it showed that my shipping label cost was indeed deducted on the same day that I created it. Weird - whatever the hell eBay was pushing on me. 

I noticed that since eBay automatically enrolled existing listings into the "Global Shiping Program," that items that I had intended to advertise as free shipping were not showing up as such for international buyers.  A buyer contacted me and asked why the shipping cost was there and I got confused by what he meant.  I tried issuing an invoice with a shipping discount but the system won't allow you to issue an adjusted invoice for an item that is part of the GSP.  So my observation is that the GSP shipping quote will override any shipping cost you place for international orders assuming your item is selected for the GSP.  This affects DLC listings that I would rather email than physically ship (hence free ship).

At first, I was thinking of giving him the refund...Because a partial would be like $15...which is nothing in the grand scheme of things.
Then I thought, I'd offer to have him send it back for a full refund.

But then I figured..F*ck that. I'm going to teach him something about Karma.
I'm going to go to the mattresses.

So, now I'm going to wait till the neg is expunged and the case closed.
Then I'm going to block him.
And then I'll teach him a lesson.



What do you have in mind?

I've taken down the information of some scammers from me in the past as a "will get payback one day" list and I'd like to retaliate.  I'm unsure how to retailiate on an eBay level since they would be just as capable to scam me back on a future listing anyway.

Really don't know...I didn't plan to use eBay for revenge.

If I scammed him, then I'd be reducing myself to his level.

 

I was thinking of more ...ummm..."extra-curricular" ways.  Haha.

Just fill out a bunch of magazine subscriptions with their information and check the Bill Me Later box. They'll start getting the magazine and we all know how fun it is to cancel lots of subscriptions. Give them a variety of new reading material.

This really annoys me: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Grand-Theft-Auto-V-GTA-5-Xbox-360-2013-Disc-1-Install-Disc-Only-Free-Ship-/221311121214?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item33872bb73e

 

How can you list something as like new when you can't even play it. Its the first result when you look at like new listings and in the description it doesn't even mention that you need to disc 2 to actually play the game. I guess its just a pet peeve type thing but people seem to deliberately choose the wrong descriptions and conditions so they can be the cheapest or first thing people see. Then buyers have to wade through all these nonsense listings to get to the thing they actually want. Ebay should remove these listings and give people warnings for this but I honestly just hope someone buys it then returns it and Negs them for terrible listing practices.

eBay removed the feedback. Booyah!

 

They've also said that they'll be getting in touch with buyer and scold him for being an ass_h0le.

If an eBay user is from Spain, should I be concerned about shipping to that country?  I've never shipped to Spain before.  I'd have to ship a CE that is just under 5 lbs. 

 

eBay user doesn't appear to have left any negative feedback for other sellers in the past.

Just buy insurance if it is something experience.  Ship there a few times without problem.

I goofed and accidentally closed a unpaid buyer transaction before the buyer had a chance to have his eCheck clear. The payment cleared just 2 days ago (after I closed the unpaid buyer account) so I learned that eBay won't stop an eCheck from clearing. Just an observation if you guys ever run into the same problem.

Was selling GTA5 on eBay but my order was cancelled (Walmart fiasco). I told my buyer that I had to cancel so I opened a cancellation request. Then the buyer pays for the item and has yet to contact me. 

 

I do admit that I also wanted to cancel since they only had a 1 rating and I don't trust their history and recent eBay account. I know, they could be legit but their PayPal isn't verified (looks like they paid with a credit card but idk). 

 

Anyways, I still want to sell it to them since I got another one that I can ship. Am I good to ship even if they agree to the cancellation (I messaged telling them I can now ship it) or should I wait for them to deny the request to cancel the sale?

First things first.

NEVER list something on eBay that you don't have in your hand.

 

Next...DO NOT ship now that you've sent them a cancel request. Wait for them to deny the request. Send them a message telling them to deny the request.

In either case, if the buyer has half a brain, he'll deny it because you haven't given him back the money.

 

May want to give him a couple of $$ discount for the trouble as well...just so that he doesn't give you a neg or neutral out of frustration of having to deal with all this.

That's crazy you actually wanted to list something that was from an obvious glitch.

As a buyer I would be tempted to neg you.

Some stuff is understandable to list early like a preorder. But not the Walmart glitch lol

Yeah, I didn't know it was a glitch when I found out which was early last night when the deal was first posted. I purchased the game and it said it was ready for pick up. It wasn't until I went to the store that they said they didn't have any. I end up getting the games anyways from Target with a price match.

 

It was still my fault though. I almost always wait for the items to be in my hand but I wanted to list it before the hoards of people listed theirs. Luckily I did too since the price dropped throughout the day.

 

Just called the buyer and she is going to reject the case later on. Thanks for the help guys.

To add to this, you have to use USPS Priority International if the item is 4lbs or over, so you would be using that whether you wanted to or not. That includes a tracking number, and I 'think' $100 in insurance.

A better way to set up your payment policies to Instant Payment on your buy it now items.

So upon clicking the button, they're forced to pay right then.
