SOURCE: ebay Problems with Buyer

A buyer is committed once the bid has been placed and won. That's part and parcel of Ebay rules.

I understand what you mean about the 'buyer' being likely to retaliate with negative feedback. Personally, I would email Ebay and explain that the buyer won't actually pay and you're worried about negative feedback. Ask them for their advice and let them sort it out, if they will.

You have of course paid to advertise the watch on Ebay. Not a lot of money to advertise, more of an annoyance factor that somebody has messed you around. The 'buyer' should of course be responsible for reimbursing your advertising costs but the truth is you're very unlikely to recover those.

Email Ebay and explain the situation. If a non-paying buyer leaves negative feedback in retaliation ... well, it shouldn't be allowed. Ebay should be able to either prevent negative feedback in retaliation, or remove it from your rating should it happen.

SOURCE: more secure way of buynig a car

Red Flags, Dude, all over the place. I wouldn't deal with this seller no matter what assurances they gave. Just find another car, there are thousands out there just like the one you want through reputable dealers. Let this go before you get taken to the bank. Don't ever give anybody your ebay information, never.

SOURCE: Transaction #65B4T138L3W13

eBay do not condone the use of Western Union or similar payments. I was able to save a friend $10k last year when he almost made a similar purchase. When he showed me the emails they all talked about an escrow company holding the money, but the last one asked for the money to go through WU to Italy, not to an escrow company at all.

It might sound a good deal but consider how good it will look when you've paid the money and got nothing in return. My friend thought he was getting a high quality campervan. We found the vehicle online (same plates) in a legitimate ad - the eBay "seller" had lifted the details from the genuine ad.

I want to give feedback to a seller on my paypal account


How to leave feedback the RIGHT way 18af_7.jpg?set_id=81 Published by mutti74 October 26, 2013 . 14K Views . 2 Comments . 79 Votes So you finally gave in and bought something on ebay? WAY TO GO! Welcome to the world of endless deals and bargains!
Are you happy with your purchase?
Answer: YES! I love it!
Awesome, now lets let the seller know. The easiest way to leave feedback is to simply go back to the page of the actual item. Either type in the item number and click search OR go to MY EBAY and look under "All Buying" under "Won" and click on the item.
Once you get to the page, look towards the top, it'll say LEAVE FEEDBACK, simply click on that and Voi'La you are ready to leave feedback.
Since you are happy with your purchase, rate POSITIVE and write you comments in, such as: "Fast shipping, very happy with purchase." or "Great product, excellent communication!"
We are not done yet, Ebay has integrated a STAR system to rate sellers. You can rate 1-5 stars on "Item as described", "Communication", "Shipping Time" and "Shipping & Handling Charges".
Here is a tip about shipping and handling charges. Sometimes you may not be happy with those charges, KEEP ON MIND: Whatever you bought could have been shipped from the opposite side of the country (or even from another country), so OF COURSE they may be higher than having it sent from 1 end of a state to the other hand!! Those actual shipping charges are out of sellers hands.
All set with your rating? Simply leave feedback and DONE! Easy, fast and simple.
Now......a STRONG REMINDER. I often browse through ebay guides and reviews and TOO MANY buyers mistaken this area for contacting the sellers. This REVIEW and GUIDE area has NOTHING TO DO with leaving feedback or communicating with sellers!!!!! Follow the above steps to properly leave feedback.
What if you are not happy? Follow the above steps to get to your items page and click on (right side of page) CONTACT seller and email them. Whether it is a breakage or the item has not arrived yet. Give the seller some time to resolve the issue and to respond back before leaving neutral or negative feedback. I am a seller myself, as well as buyer. I ONLY result in leaving neutral or negative feedback if:
A: I have a non-paying bidder (new ebay rules NO LONGER permit sellers leaving negative feedback to non-paying bidders, so sellers really have no way of warning others anymore)
B: I bought something, it arrived broken or did not arrive at all, and the seller NEVER responded to NUMEROUS emails over a 2 week period, plenty of time to respond and rectify.
C: The seller told me basically something like "oh well, not my problem".
IF the seller responds and rectifies the mishap by either refunding money or sending out a duplicate item, there is NO reason for me to leave a bad feedback since the seller took care of me in a satisfactory manner.
Personally leaving a neutral feedback would be perhaps if the item I bought took a very long time to arrive (remember overseas purchases do take longer to arrive). If I bought something, lets say from a seller in California and I paid for Parcel Post. That takes 2-9 BUSINESS days. If I am sitting here a month later and the item finally arrives, thats a tad extra long in waiting time. If the seller does not communicate any delay in shipping, that calls for a neutral. WHY NOT LEAVE A NEGATIVE, you ask??? You received the item, riiiight? :o) That is why I would leave a neutral and not a negative.
This takes me to another point, bare with me: CHECK THE SELLERS FEEDBACK!!!!
(Simply click on the number next to the sellers name)
Look at their feedback score, the percentage!!!! If a seller has numerous neutral or negative feebacks in the last 30 days...STAY AWAY!!! Read their feedback and why people left bad feedback.
If a seller has less than 100% positive feedback, check why and how long ago they received a negative feedback, it could have been over a new ebayer not knowing how to properly leave feedback even, one of the reason I am writing this here.
Unfortunately only about 4 out of every 10 buyers leave feedback nowadays, so do not be upset if a seller only leaves feedback once they have received feedback from a buyer. It is a common just-practice.
10/2013 Please note: Ebay's push to offer free shipping on all items and charging an extra fee to sellers if they charge shipping has made the ebay market somewhat unstable and less fun for us sellers. I understand that big companies can offer free shipping on many items and sellers offer it a lot on lightweight items. Please do not expect and let it out on the seller via leaving neutral or negative feedback, if a seller charges shipping on dishes that weigh 5# and sell for only $10. Private part time sellers are here to make some money too, so paying for the item and eating all the quadruple ebay/ paypal fees and shipping the item out for free is just simply unreasonable.

Tip

How much time to dyou need to improve your eBay Seller Dashboard


You generally have until the next evaluation period (this info is in your Seller Dashboard) to improve your detailed seller ratings (DSRs). If it's almost the end of the month, you should focus on open transactions and do what you can to satisfy your buyers. That should encourage them to leave positive Feedback for you. We evaluate sellers on the 20th of each month. If your percentage of low DSRs improves, but you haven't reached the minimum performance threshold, eBay may reduce or remove your selling limit. Your listings may still have a lower placement in search results, though. This gives you a chance to improve your business and resolve any issues with buyers before you can ramp back up. If your percentage of low DSRs reaches acceptable levels, eBay will remove all the consequences from your account.

Hope this helps! Please rate! Thanks!

6. Adding photos of your sale item to the listing page usually increases the chance that people will bid on it

How is the best way to get started on ebay.?


Hi,

I'm sure you can find some pointers on eBay itself, but I will give my 2 cents for what it's worth.

1) Choose a username and GOOD password when you sign up.

2) Get a PayPal account and get it verified. Paypal is the easiest and most used form of buying and selling.

3) Know your products if you are selling. Give accurate and complete descriptions. Be honest about them too.

4) Ask questions if you are buying and are not sure of something.

5) Use GOOD photos whenver possible. Don't use grainy, low resolution pictures.

6) Give feedback. That is how you are "rated" in the eBay world. If someone only has a Feedback rating of under 90%, I would be cautious. Of course you can view anyones feedback and see comments.

I hope that gives you a start. Happy eBaying.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. You can look at my figures if you wish. I use the same username as I use here.
PPS. Please consider rating this solution as this is the way we are rated on Fixya. Thanks!

I have been happy with eBay,but they do not accept negative feedback,some thing is wrong there


It is eBAY policy not to allow sellers to leave negative feedback for buyers. However, a buyer CAN leave negative feedback for a seller. eBAY seems to favour the needs of buyers rather than sellers.

As a seller, I wold not leave any feedback until the buyer has left theirs. Then if they leave you negative feedback, you can always say something negative in your feedback to them. Even though the feedback cannot be flagged or marked as negative, other people can still read it.

Nothing. You agreed to allow PayPal to arbitrate in such matters.
If you fully documented the items, make sure the items are actually the ones you sold and not switched. Fedral law may apply if the buyer/thief is in a different state.
