Question about eBay Auctions

1 Answer

I have a buyer who is lying about the condition of an item and also stating that I shipped them the package COD which is untrue. They are trying to get the item for free. It is clear that they are lying. I do not ship COD. Funny how they knew ecactly how much the package cost to ship cause they told me what the sticker said from the post office on the package and yet is trying to say I shipped it COD.

Any guy on eBay who ain't behaving right has to be ignored. If you feel they are threatening 'aliens'from another planet, just report them to eBay bosses.

Regarding a case that was opened on an iPhone that I sold.


We can't help you with problems like this. We only provide information. You need to contact eBay or whomever you sold it through. If the buyer has closed the case, you have to assume they are happy. They may have THOUGHT they got the wrong item and then decided they did and are happy with the sale.

It may also be that they were trying to scam YOU by saying they got something else and thought better of it. You can report the phone you sold as stolen and have it permanently locked. They may have thought of this.

Tip

How to succesfully sell things on eBay


1. Create and Ebay account if not already done so.

2. Do a simple search for the item you wish to sell. This is to get an idea on prices similar items are selling for.

3. Click on sell in the upper right hand corner, then click start selling

4. Enter keywords about your item (up to 3) and then select one or more catagories to list in. (the more catagories, the more popularity and more chance to sell, but don't just list in a category it doesn't belong in just to get more popularity.)

5. Fill out the form for selling the thing.
5a. Price
-Starting- this is the price that the auction starts at, if someone bids, it will sell for no lower than this.

-Reserve - This will allow you to set you starting bid as low as you want and have it sell for no lower than the reserve. (keep in mind this may drive away some people)

-Buy it now - This is the price that you can give to buyers if they simply want to buy and don't want to auction.

6. Upload pictures. Pictures are important. Sometimes this may make the difference between selling and not selling. I always try to use pictures of the actual product. It just lets buyers know what they are actually getting.

7. Use the best description you can, the more details there are, the more attractive it is to the buyer. DON'T repeat the same thing over and over just to get more words.

8. Pick a good shipping method, and what I have found out the best way to do it is to go to a shipping place, have it packaged up, and have them tell you how much it will be to ship. Tha way you will have no surprise shipping costs. You can also always refund the extra pice for shipping if you over-estimate.

9. List the item. eBay is pretty good at helping you the rest of the way.

I hope you enjoy selling things on ebay and soon you will become a master. Pretty soon, you'll be earning yourself stars.

What is my Wurlitzer 1015 CD black onyx in perfect condition worth?


There is no set value for these machines. It is simply worth what ever someone is willing to pay. However there are some guidelines. Coast values are always higher, this includes the east and west coast plus the great lakes also count as "coast" pricing. The walnut model is usually a few hundred dollars less than the Black onyx. Of course a dealer would provide service after the sale and usually give you some kind of warranty, you would also expect delivery to be an option. The Dealer would have a higher price tag due to all the extras.

The auction price would be less because you have to take it with you and there would be no warranty, and if it broke a few months, you would be "on your own" trying to find a repair person. This would be the lower price that you would expect to pay.

Here is an example of a walnut model that recently sold on eBay, described as being in mint condition.

Resolution centre ebay


According to the Paypal process when you file a claim for an item that is significantly not as described, you must return the item at your cost in order for Paypal to issue a refund for the amount you paid, not the return shipping costs. You have 10 days to provide Paypal with a tracking number. Paypal doesn't allow you to post a reply. You send the item back or in 10 days the claim is closed.
Buyers are being forced to pay to received goods the seller didn't described accurately, and in some cases, honestly.
I think that is wrong.
When you can prove that an item is significantly not as described, then Paypal should refund your entire costs of the item including shipping both ways. Sellers can take advantage of Paypal's forcing buyers to pay for return shipping.
If a buyer doesn't like something or changes their mind, and wants to return it, then the return shipping should be paid by the buyer.

I have someone that wants to buy my watch through PayPal. They want me to ship the watch to China. I have nevered used PayPal and am concerned this is a scam. What could go wrong. If they send me money...


after you sign up for a paypal account, either personal or business, ask for the payment to be made before sending the watch, because you must consider shipping to China, for a account in paypal you'll have to put up a credit card, debit card, or checking account,& then paypal has to verify the account.
once the money has been deposited into your account, also paypal does charge fees for the sellers, which will be taken out of your money, but after the fees are removed then the rest of the money is your, then & only then should you ship the watch, providing you've charged enough so the shipping charge doesn't come out of your pocket, but the buyers, then send the watch, send a tracking number to the buyer so you & the buyer can keep track of the watch, also make sure to get insurance on the package also (buyer pays for insurance),,, that you know it get safetly to the buyer. because if the buyer does not reciever the watch in a certain amount of time they can go to paypal & start a dispute in the resolution center over not recieving the item & then paypal will come to you about the situation

Hi,

FIrst you need to check your site preference if you allowed the buyers to edit the payment totals, if it is set up as yes you will need to disable it.

well, the buyer should pay whatever amount of shipping that you have placed in your listing. If the buyer will fail to do so, you can report this to Trust and Safety by using the link below
http://pages.ebay.com/help/contact_us/_base/result_3_6_10.html
click the email us link at the bottom

It will be your discretion on what you can do about the buyer, you can issue refund and then add the buyer in the block bidder buyer list. Unfortunately, this buyer can still leave you negative so please do be careful in dealing with this type of buyer. You can grant the buyer's wish to cancel, file a cancel transaction and you will get the final value fee credit.

In the future, you may want to add a shipping table in your item description so that buyers will see it before they purchase your item.

I hope this helps you a little.

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.
