Question about eBay Auctions

1 Answer

I am suspicious about the seller, do not know whether I should pay the items I won. Item 290496414127, in the description says 2 pockets, I checked Icebreaker site, there are no pockets in this model, although the seller insists they are. The picture of the items are taken from some sites. The shipping costs: 9$ to any country abroad seems too low. I do not have much experience with online buying, but now read some articles and got some warnings from friends to be very careful with buying from abroad. Please, suggest what should I do

I bought something from ebay once for my wife.We were hesitant also.It was a Gucci purse.My wife opened it and within 3 seconds she knew it was a fake/copy because she knows what to look for.We sent it back and the seller sent us way more than we paid for it,for whatever reason.I wish I would have kept their name to turn them in.Mine was in the same country as me USA.I would not even consider anything abroad because once someone has a number,you have no idea who they are,where they are,etc. So,in a roundabout way,I am saying,leave that site to the scammers.I do purchas emany things online though such as Walmart ship to store,catalogs,pictures,Target,Fingerhut,and many other sites,WITHIN the USA for sure and have had no problems.I also use online banking to pay my bills and saves probably $5/month in postage.To tell the transaction is secure,the site will normally show a little padlock icon.It is all encrypted by their equipment from me,and re-established when it gets to them.Encrypted is basically scrambled/coded and unscrambled/coded.

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.

How much i should pay for an ebay item that i purchased?


Find out how much you need to pay for your item:
  • In the listing
  • In My eBay
  • In the confirmation email sent by eBay
  • In the invoice sent by the seller
After you win an item, use the Pay Now button to pay your seller. Once you win an item, the Pay Now button appears:
  • in the listing
  • in My eBay
  • in your confirmation email
When you click the Pay Now button,your payment details will usually be automatically calculated for you.These details will match the shipping and handling, tax, and multiplepurchase discounts in the listing below the item description.



If the payment details aren’t available, or the totals don’t seem accurate, here's what to do:
  1. Reviewthe item description and any emails you've received from the seller. Ifthe seller specified shipping costs in the item description or sent youshipping costs by email, you can manually enter this information on theReview Your Purchase page after you click the Pay Now button.
  2. If you still don't have the information you need, click the Request total from sellerlink next to the seller's user ID. After you request the total, theseller can send you a new invoice that includes the correct paymentinformation.
  3. When the seller sends your invoice, click the Pay Now button in the invoice to see your updated total.

4029357733 paypal


1) First, hopefully you completed the whole transaction with the seller USING the actual paypal application. If you decided to buy it by just emailing the seller without paypal that is why the transaction is not there and the seller deleted his account.
Ebay does caution against doing it without using paypal.

2) If you did buy and pay for item throught paypal, it sounds like the seller deleted his account and does not want to refund your money or ship your item.

If #2 is the situation, Go to the actual transaction or Activity on your paypall account and get ALL the information you can on the sale. Item #, description, Seller information, etc.

Log into your paypal account and choose My Account
scroll to the bottom and click "contact us"
a page will open and you can either call PayPal or look in "Find Answers by Topic" and report FRAUD or Report a Problem.

try that and Ebay will be able to search their records and find this seller if it is fraudulent.

Hope this helps.

There is a buick for sale in Philadelphia,Pa. and I live in that city and I sent the person 3 e mails that I was interested in his car and would like to see the car. After three e mails still no answer....


Hi!

First check if there is an item number (12 digits) and if there is then locate it on eBay.com or at motors.ebay.com. Check if there's a listing like that. You will need to log in to your eBay account so that you can bid or buy it now the item. If you don't have an eBay account, then you need to create one.

If you see the item in a different site, do not continue. eBay will not cover that item under the buying protection if it's not listed on their site.


Here's how the REAL transactions work on eBay:
1. buyer sees the item listed on eBay
2. buyer buys/bids on the item ( Checking an reading the item description with an understanding of the item that they want to purchase)
3. buyer wins item (the buyer can now request the phone number of the seller if the buyers has concerns about the item.)
4. buyer's name appears as winner on the listing
5. item number appears in "Items Won" in buyer's My eBay page
6. seller sends an invoice
7. buyer pays the seller (buyer does not pay eBay)
8. seller ships item/ buyer picks up item


I hope this helps. Have a good one! Don't forget to rate!

PS: Also, do not send check, money order, wire or bank transfer. Check eBay's Accepted Payment methods.

How to pay for items on ebay


When you buy an item on E-bay the seller states what forms of payment he will accept. Most sellers prefer to be paid using Pay-Pal, but will accept money orders and some will also acept personal checks. If you want to pay by money order or personal check you will have to send the seller a message (On E-Bay use "Ask Seller a question") asking for his postal address. If you mail a personal check, they probably will not ship your item until your check clears their bank.
Pay-Pal is the fastest way to pay. You will have to open a Pay-Pal account. To do this click on Pay-Pal on the E-Bay website and fill out the application.

mcdevito75 here, Hello Deirdre, the first thing to do is to let the ebay seller you won these items from know your haveing a problem with any money owed due to a non-verify number, this way the seller who you won the items from knows you intend to pay for them. You can contact the seller whom you won the items from by clicking on my ebay at the top of any ebay page then with the drop down menu click on won, once at the page of items you won, next to the item you won click the option on the far right sde of the item title, in the drop down menu click on contact seller. Once you have contacted the seller with your problem, then call ebay at 1-800-701-3229 you can also call paypal at 1-877-672-9725 or 1-402-935-7733 or 1-888-221-1161 and see about fixing any problems with your account.

Do not continue the transaction and do not pay for this item. VPP only works if you purchase an item on eBay motors site. ask the seller for the eBay 12 digit item number so that you can check if this item is a legite listed item on eBay. Do not pay if you do not bid or won the item on eBay site. This is a spoof email. Please forward the messages you got from this seller to spoof@ebay.com so that eBay can investigate this for you

Hello.

It seems there is either a battery fault, i.e need a new battery or there is a battery connection problem. either way It's best to return it and ask for either a replacement or your money back. If you paid via paypal you have 60 days to file a claim for an item not as described if the seller is unhelpful.
