I have made a few substantial sales through eBay but they are not seller friendly. I've had situations where someone puts in a bid but never end up paying for it and eBay still charges me selling fees upfront until it gets resolved by opening up a case. And the annoying part is if you want to request a refund on your credit balance, you have to call the customer service number where you wait for ages for someone to pick up. I don't know why they make the selling process so difficult and convoluted. It's like they have something against sellers. I know a lot of fraud happens on eBay but buyers are just as likely to be fraudulent as sellers.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THEIR WARRANTY. IT IS SO COMPLICATED AND INVOLVED IT IS EASIER TO JUST NOT BUY THE VEHICLE. THE DAMAGES TO MY CAR WERE WATER THAT WAS NOT REPORTED BY SELLER AT ALL SO THE CAR WAS WATER DAMAGE SO BAD IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN SALVAGED. EBAY WANTED ME TO GET AN ESTIMATE AND UNLESS THE ENGINE OR TRANSMISSION DAMAGE WAS OVER $1000 THEY COULD NOT HELP. EVERYTHING ON THE CAR WAS CRUMBLING APART. iM OUT $10K FOR THE TRUCK AND THE REPAIRS ARE WELL OVER THAT BIT BY BIT. PLUS EBAY ONLY WANTS YOU TO TAKE THE VEHICLE TO A DEALERSHIP OR CHAIN REPAIR COMPANY AND YOU CANT PAY FOR THE REPAIRS SO THE VEHICLE JUST SITS AROUND. WHEN IT SITS AROUND YOU CANT DISTINGUISE THE DAMAGES....YOU CANT WIN!! SCAM!!!
Love ebay, as a buyer...haven't tried selling, yet. The auctions are fun, if the wait is a bit frustrating at times. I've only had one bad seller there, all others have been great, especially when it comes to answering questions.
As in all online sites you have to check on the seller reliability, that's what burned me when I first started buying...make to sure to check customer comments for each seller I buy from.
Paying with Paypal has been great as I don't have to give any credit card info to each individual seller when making purchases. Hopefully I will still have this option when ebay and Paypal split. I've gone on to use Paypal when shopping other sites, keeping all of my credit card info private and in one place rather than spread out across the internet. You don't have to have a Paypal card to use Paypal...
As far as Customer Service goes, The only problems I've had was in language and I requested, nicely, to have another representative with better English and everything was settled. I have always been treated with respect and my problems resolved within one phone call (1-866-540-3229, 5AM - 10PM PT, M-Sun).
I sold a gift card. Buyer claimed it was empty. It wasn't. I tried to communicate with buyer, they did not respond. As I had my card back full of funds, I refunded the buyer. I left buyer negative feedback about what a hassle the whole thing had been. Buyer retaliated by saying I sold her an empty gift card. I contacted ebay to have it removed. I had evidence that gift card was full. They said it didn't matter what the truth was, whether the card had money or not. In their opinion I did not work with the buyer enough to show them "how to use the product". SO after MUCH hassle and headache I was left with a review saying I sold an empty gift card, regardless of proof opposite. I thought I did everything by the book, and I still got screwed. It didn't matter who was "right", only that the incompetent person who couldn't figure out how to use a gift card didn't receive proper "help" from me. Bad review stands. I am cancelling my account and never using this service again. They don't care to protect those who are in the right.
I had my selling privileges revoked back in 2013 because I started another account, linked it to the main one (which is perfectly allowed) and started trying to dropship (which also, according to the policies I scoured beforehand, was allowed).
They revoked selling privileges for both accounts with no warning or information on WHY it happened. I called them recently to try to get it removed because I really need to start selling on there again, and I was told that it was permanent and that I should sell on a different auction site but i could still buy on eBay! Are you kidding me?
The customer service guy I spoke to was not helpful at all and for most of the call just kept repeating himself instead of giving me actual information. When I finally got a bit angry he finally told me that they were revoked because one of my accounts was caught trying to get around eBay policies, but would not tell me which ones, and would not let me do a thing to fix it.
Now, if this was a second or third strike I probably would never have tried to get my selling privileges back, however I have NEVER been banned, suspended, had listings deleted, or gotten into ANY trouble in the years I was using eBay before this happened. Additionally, I have an account that has ZERO negative feedbacks. I guess I just do not understand why they won't work with me, when all I want to do is go back to selling and not just making myself money, but THEM as well?
I ordered a back panel for my phone but the quality was not up to the mark i raised a refund claim nothing happened just customer agent called and directed me to call seller no response from seller the product is worst never ever buy from e bay all this refund is bull $#*! they will steal you hard earned money just stay away from them fake m****f***
The biggest mistake I did in my life is bought a product [laptop - HP Pavillion 15 Touch 4th Gen i5 12GB Ram 1TB Hdd Win 8.1 1.5GB Intel Graphics(261977796247) - Price: Rs. 37, 602.00)] from eBay, I will make sure that my family, friends, colleagues etc. will never buy any product from eBay.
eBay simply don't know concept of buying products online, let me know you - first is saving time. I had requested replacement of my product and you USELESS eBay simply emailed me after 7 - 8 DAYs saying I have to dispatch my product to the seller by myself. If I had that much time then why I had used USELESS eBay. And in your email you stat that if I will not dispatch that product within 5 days of receiving your mail you will cancel my replacement request. HELL.
After dispatching faulty laptop I had requested for replacement and guess what, what I got in replacement - a broken laptop.
I had returned the broken laptop to the seller using same way - courier by myself to the seller. And seller confirmed receiving of broken laptop. Now story starts from here - this time I had requested my HARD EARNED MONEY back. I had provided all details - images of broken laptop and receipt of courier but TILL DATE EBAY HAVE NOT RETURNED MY MONEY TO ME.
From 07th September 2015 I am requesting eBay to return my money and called approx 8 - 10 times to their USELESS customer care but still I am struggling with my refund.
Is this a way to do online business?
I love Ebay and heres why. Ebay does a fantastic job of ensuring you are happy with your purchase. If you have an issue with a seller Ebay's robust dispute resolution system ensures good lines of communication between you and the seller and Ebays team.
This tends to make life hard for the crooks leaving you to do business with honest sellers. I have purchased a large number of items from Ebay and plan to continue to do so in the future.
Do NOT use eBay for your regular purchases! Most of them are not a good deal. Just drive that extra mile to go to a larger city so you can get the items instead. You will pay the same or even less if you just go to a physical store. And if you have car trouble, they sell car parts on ebay which is usually pretty good. I even found a replacement car hood really cheap including shipping. They probably sold it at a loss. I buy gift cards and reloadable cards on ebay. No problem there either. I have bought vitamins, including vitamins for my guinea pigs and they ship no problem. Buy anything in bulk and it will ship no problem. Buy a heavy item and it will ship no problem. Buy a rare item and it will ship no problem. Buy an expensive item and it will ship no problem. HOWEVER, you have to contact the seller and REQUEST that it be delivered directly to your door. I find that USPS rarely does this. On the contrary the USPS usually LOSE my packages! Apparently it is not the seller's fault as long as they mail it. Most Cheapskate and sometimes Ghetto sellers refuse to ship UPS, even if I agree to pay extra shipping. eBay used to specify which shipping carrier the seller uses, but now it just says "Standard Shipping", "Expedited Shipping" etc. with no mention of the carrier. It is up to the Seller whether or not to even put that information! All the items I mentioned will usually ship UPS or FedEx, delivered directly to your door without any problems. The rest of the items, DON'T EVEN BOTHER. And the auctions are rigged! Make sure you have signed up for a free UPS account (they will bill you for various services requested) and if they ship UPS Sure Post that means USPS so make sure you upgrade it to UPS Ground. I had bought some items on ebay and requested "2 Day Air" which used to be UPS but they decided to ship with UPS Sure Post. They took my shipping money and ran with it! And then I had to pay UPS directly to change it to UPS Ground. That's right. Instead of Air, I now have Ground! What a loss of money! Actually it doesn't cost that much but it is still kinda of a rip off. Just buy from some other website. There are many that are even better than ebay, and the other websites don't mess with you on the shipping. Use these websites instead.
Greed and lack of respect for the sellers has ruined the Ebay experience, at least for most of the sellers anyway. If you buy new things from a foreign country, in bulk, and sell in bulk, yes, Ebay is THE place for you. If you are a small business or an individual trying to reduce clutter, forget Ebay. The Rules, Regulations, Changes, and the highest fees ever have changed Ebay from an on-line auction site to an on-line catalog filled with cheap, foreign made products. Sure, you can still find something you are looking for now, but in the years to come, greed will have driven away even the steadfast sellers who remain today. I would comment on their customer service, but there isn't any. At least not for a seller.
I've been on eBay for a long time since the late 1990's. Starting off as a buyer and several years later as both a buyer and seller. Here are a few of my gripes:
1. Buying stuff from a seller at times leads to a great amount of aggravation. Many sellers are not sophisticated people; to be generous, I'd say some sellers are truly morons. You'll find sellers without any sense of applying good business practices. Because of the mental ineptitude or the basic criminal minds of some sellers, buying from Amazon might be a preferred purchasing method in order to avoid buying aggravations.
Here's an example of a purchasing problem my wife recently experienced. She bid on a second-hand, small mirror priced at under $10 which had a shipping cost listed as $40; and she didn't observe the $40 shipping cost when she placed the bid. The actual cost to ship this small mirror probably would cost about $5 to $10 (maximum). In essence, the seller was attempting to "pull a fast one" on my wife. The seller admitted the shipping cost mistake but demanded my wife pay the $40 shipping cost, which the seller said would refund the difference between the $40 and the actual shipping cost. My wife refused to hand over the $40 for shipping costs because the seller refused to rebill her for the actual shipping cost. This turned into a lot of back-and-forth seller/buyer communications which the seller showed her true colors ... and a very "dark" color, indeed a crook. The obnoxious seller was ugly and created a lot of aggravation. Turns out the eBay seller was "new" without any negative feedback; a big surprise. I would highly recommend you first buy things from Amazon, if possible ... definitely more sophisticated sellers at Amazon for new product items. But when buying old stuff, that's where you have a good chance of buying crappy stuff on eBay.
2. Now a more recent problem with eBay is the complaint contact method with the company. Once you could use e-mail and have a written record of complaints filed. Now eBay does everything with phone contact. The problem with phone contacts is the lack of having a written record, but instead being guided by an eBay representative that doesn't know what they are doing. In fact, you may be guided outside the policy rules that eBay supposedly governs.
3. Another issue is that the bad sellers (the "crook" types) continue selling on eBay. EBay does settle quickly in your favor to refund the cost of a bad product. But ... you'll later see the same high volume, junk selling crook flooding the marketplace with crap. So you'll go through a miserable buying experience and so will others in the near future. By the way, I've noticed this situation to be true on Amazon, too. Have had the exact same negative experiences with both companies.
4. What's interesting is when I just happened to purchase the same item from both an Amazon and an eBay seller. I had purchased an item from Amazon that was not as advertised. I needed this item ASAP, so I happened to see the same item on eBay unknowingly it was from the same seller ... oh crap! So both purchases were from the same seller and both times shipped the wrong item. It was obviously the seller was dumping it's inventory. The fact the first time I confronted the seller on Amazon made no difference when I once again received the same, wrong item on eBay. Because this particular seller was a high volume mover on both Amazon and eBay, I made an interesting observation of the quantity of negative feedbacks left on Amazon and eBay. First of all, this seller didn't have a pristine selling history review on either Amazon and eBay. But I examined in depth the volume of negative feedbacks left on both Amazon and eBay. For a given time period, Amazon recorded a much larger number of negative feedback complaints than eBay ... about a four-to-one difference. So I have to ask, "Why does eBay show much fewer negative feedbacks?"
I've had pretty good luck with eBay over the years. Have purchased up to four-figure items and sold up to many four-figure items and a few five-figure items. But all it takes is a few bad deals to make life miserable!
eBay IS a great place to sell some items & make some extra cash HOWEVER their "Buyer-Biased" return policy is THE worst policy I have ever seen. Almost always siding with the buyer if there is any issue whatsoever That certainly is not fair to the seller who comes across that shady buyer that knows how to work eBay's policies
Well, it's certainly a legitimate site that you can make money on. Your success largely depends on whether your items are sale worthy and how much inventory you have. Some people make a little extra money here and there. Others have warehouses full of items and make hundreds of thousands a year selling on ebay.com. Your success depends on YOU rather than ebay.com itself. I've had some items on there, and some things have sold. You get paid just like you expect. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the fee structure is a bit steep. That certainly will not keep you from making money, but it's enough to make note of it.
eBay Inc and it’s CEO John Donahoe along with top rated seller “HubcapJoes” is suspected of using Racketeering and “In Your Face” Mafia Style Tactics to attack critics who expose eBay corporate wrongdoings. Please see this article for proof: http://bit.ly/1LotLmV
On ebay you can find everything your heart desires. Prices are negotiable, very often you stumble upon a great deal BUT also you can stumble upon a risky seller who is looking to tip you off. You have to be careful and do you research before you buy anything
Ive bought a lot of different items off of ebay and so far no issues. Usually one of the cheapest places to find things as well. If you order something out of country the shipping time is a little longer but its worth it for the price you pay! highly recommended!
Bought loads from Ebay over the years and never had a hassle. However when trying to sell!! It used to be so easy but not now, nothing is where it should be "Reserve Price" for example, it used to be there by default, there is an add feature but when you go there and tick the Reserve Price box and save it it doesn't appear in the listing! Also I moved from UK to Australia years ago, I got my account switched across but my listings wanted me to put UK post code and wouldn't let me change it to Australian one, not to mention the hundreds of attempts to get the listing right with error messages that didn't make it clear what they wanted or gave no option to fix. I sold 6 things online for free via Gumtree while trying to get one listing on Ebay (I cancelled it as it got dark and had enough). Its is an absoloutly terrible tool to use to sell stuff on they make a simple process far too complicated and the fees are well above what the market rate is or should be. I have been double billed in UK pounds and Australian dollars and so sick of speaking to Ebay reps to fix things or to ask them to fix things they told me they had!!! Hundreds of frustrations when dealing with them or trying to post something to sell its SO SO HARD. So much easier to buy but thats been a while so maybe not. I would certainly NOT recommend Ebay for anyone wanting to sell online try the online classifieds instead.
Terrible crap service if I didn't like to buy things online I would certainly never use it again it sucks.....
JUST A FRAUD AND WASTING OF TIME ....They gave me a coupon wotth 250 ,which can be used on a minimum putchase of 350. I had ordered a micro sd card worth 489 ,they said to deliver it within 10 days.But when i didnt gt it till 20 days ,i call them and enquired about my product,they said it will reach within few days and it is with the courier company (Aramex), so i call the courier Aramex and that bull $#*! courier company keeps promising me that they will deliver my product as soon as possible and these courier company took 20 days (in 20 days i call them for 15-18 times) and after 20 days they sent me a text saying that my product has taken back by the seller and if i want to get my product then i had to contact ebay ,
I call e bay and said about my problem they said me that i will gt my product by raising e bay guarantee claim , i claimed it and got a paisa pay id . They said that they will contact me within 5 days bt even after 15 days they didnt ,so i call them and asked about my e bay guarantee claim then they said that they will not provide my product. So after wasting my 2 months of time and money on phone calls , i got nothing....so please beware of such frauds.
ebay can be a good shopping website to buy from if you can tell between scammers and legitimate sellers I only got scammed once on ebay but most of the transactions I made were pretty good there seems to be lot of bad sellers on ebay always check the amount of positive and negative feedback and you should be fine with buying off of ebay atleast with amazon.com there are hardly any scammers
If your selling on eBay good luck!!! eBay has no respect for its sellers people can break something and use it and say it came that way and get a full refund and a negative a mark on your account for up to a year! THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THE MONEY FROM THE BUYER! They dont care about us buyers who are trying to make a living for out famillys!
The $#*!ing services ebay provided, they cancel my product without any reason. my product was placed but they cancel my product . below details are of my product.
Courier name: BLUE DART
Airway Bill Details: 59831070165
PaisaPay ID 40074045121
Ebay provided poor customer services, less quality product, and make fool customer by saying we are doing this and that and in last they said sorry we cancel your product. Now what can I do by there $#*!ing sorry
I have been on eBay for over 9 yrs..many selling policies and have changed. To much say so about what one can sell. and fees are to high for basic stores (9%)
they are are also cashing in on the shipping charges that are paid by the customer 1-2%...It is crazy....they do not pay USPS or other shippers these fees.....so you have to really jack up your prices to make a good net amt...this is why I can never ever do the auctions. They may have been the best selling platform at one time Now, not so much.. controlling your business, what you say and how you advertis...communicating with the customer outside of eBay.. Com'on really!...they can't prevent that if you wanted to. There's always to get around that. If I am going to make a sell outside of EBay and my customer found me through eBay, there is really nothing they can do about that, especially if my customer is asking for something I do not have listed....I surely not going to create the listing to satisfy eBay...when I can just go straight through PayPal and use an invoice. Whala!!!--customer wins, I wins
I LOVE Ebay!!! I'm 12 and I'm an avid Littlest Pet Shop collector and soon an avid Littlest Pet Shop Customizer. And you have people on there yelling at people about fake Littlest Pet Shops and fake anything but as an avid Littlest Pet Shop collector I don't mind fake items if it's a Littlest Pet Shop or a watch. Ebay is THE place to get what you want need or are wishing for.
I was selling on ebay since 2008 and there is no protection for the seller, only the buyer. A fraudulent buyer purchased approxamently $1,000 of my gold and silver plated coins, bars to sell at a coin show only to sell as real gold and silver in which he later changed his mind and chickened out worried that he might get caught. ( this happened twice) So, with this in mind the listings were 100% accurate to the detail with a no return listing was forced to return "goods" at my expense and still paid seller fees and after all was said and done, cost me about a hundred dollars and 2 negative feedbacks even though the purchases were never completed but I could not leave negative feedback for the buyers. There written programs only protect the buyer or scammers. I had asked ebay several times to reconsider me selling again with close monitoring but only to be treated like a criminal, but is letting me still buy on ebay only, what does that tell you?
Ordered a refurbished nutribullet juicer a month before from ebay seller (repair workshop etc) but after following up with seller and visited local post office got the broken item and when approched seller ,such a pathatic customer service i have never expected .such a worse exp..the item got delivered to selller 5 days ago but till date no answer from seller .they just sell the item and forget everythng ..i have gone mad and frustrated and not gonna buy anythbg from ebay ..worse nightmare ..full of stress and mentally tensions .God know when the new item will be sent .i have spent $109 .
Ebay has no consideration what-so-ever for the seller. A buyer can return an item even if the seller does not accept returns and the description was 100% accurate. Whenever a buyer returns an item whether you accept returns or not it affects your seller rating which can cause more fees to be charged as well as less views for your item. Ebay charges 10% of your total sales as it is which is outrageous for how poor their customer service is towards sellers. Also it takes hours just to reach an Ebay representative over the phone who will more than likely have no answer towards your problem. They will most likely tell you that you are just $#*!ed. Worst site you could possibly sell on. They definitely need new management as well as a change to their Ebay policies. With how $#*!ty their customer service is they should be charging no more than 5% of total sales. Either way they really don't care if one seller is kicked off considering the huge cut they get just for letting you post on your website and using bots versus actual employees to resolve seller/buyer conflicts.
Ebay is very bad. This site can be compare to sex predators. It will shave you all you got.This place is only for crooks who want some one else material for free and ebay will keep the seller fee. Do not buy ebay stock. Ebay is not the solid company like others. Sorry I cannot explain. Ebay is a fence company .. between .. legal and illegal. It is good for cheaters and who wants other property at no cost
I have been an EBay purchaser for many years, but this relationship is now coming to an end. I have found that in the past year or so, EBay DOES NOT SUPPORT, the purchaser. They permit too many scammers and have created such a complicated, and cumbersome process to file a claim. Their complaint, resolution and refund process has become impossible to work with. Another problem is that sellers are often "Suspended" without prior notice to the purchaser, leaving a purchaser without any recourse for a refund. So far in 2015 I have lost sever hundreds of dollars due to EBay not supporting the purchaser.
EBay has become disreputable and a supporter of fraudulent Asian sellers. Shame on EBay!
For years I have had a successful small business on eBay. (MyPinkPorch) . Over the last year and a half, my sales have plummeted and this year I am barely selling a thing. Something has changed in the way eBay is now conducting it's business. I am running my business as I always have so why the big drop off? I think maybe eBay prefers big corporate business that sell hundreds and thousands of items every month and is not so interested in "small independent sellers" such as I. Seems my items no longer get the exposure they used to and hence sales are very sporadic at best. Maybe it's time to consider another venue to sell my handcrafted products?
i don't have an ebay account but my husband does. he sold my iPhone online. Not only do we keep having fraudulent buyers attempting to buy the phone without payment. But if you have paid a shipping company (a third party) and have receipts that you have paid for a product to be shipped to the confirmed address. And provide this as proof to ebay, this is not considered proof that you sent the produce if the buyer lied and said they didn't receive it. Even though the buyer has no proof and you do have proof of shipping it ebay's terrible customer service will HARASS you and make you pay for an item you no longer have and now must pay for. Or they want YOU AS THE SELLER to pay extra for tracking as proof because proof that paid for shipping to the confirmed address is not sufficient. eBay rep even said this is a terrible position they put sellers in!!
Ebay is simply a money grab, Has been since it's inception. Encourages and profits greatly from fraudulent practices especially in the selling of illegal counterfeit items and successfully hides behind it's "venue only status" and treats it's sellers with zero respect. Changes it's policies constantly to only advantage itself. Potential buyers and sellers seriously beware and understand the risk you assume on every transaction you engage in. Buyers especially should only fund their payments with major credit cards for the protections they afford against online fraud.
EBAY has no way to distinguish the endless identical dealer ads from individual sellers when you are buying. It has become a giant reseller haven for junk. There is still the occasional individual selling a good deal, but you have to wade through piles of crap to find them. The site is intentionally complex. They must have run out of ideas for ways to charge fees. It is unfair to charge fees on items that do not sell. If their site does not generate income, what have you paid a fee for? To give Ebay your money? I ended up with a bill that didn't even cover what I sold. What a joke. Never again. Hello, Craigslist.
When are all you people going to wake up stop depending on big Corporate company like Evil bay to run your business. its time to venture out on your own and make that website and use other payment platform not just paypal. there are others like stripe,WePay,Amazon payment,2checkout you can use on your own website. why jump through hoops for ebay and let them run your life on your own business. even the small seller are getting hit hard by buyers asking for refunds after 3 month later. ebay is siding with dishonest buyer by refunding the buyer and they get to keep the item. dont get me wrong there are many good sellers and good honest buyers. Then there are many people that are doing smaller fibs—like telling white lies to ease a friend's distress or to business big or small shops.you can get away with it and its no big deal to them when they do it.The small fibs are so innocuous that they apparently trip off our tongue ... “To keep society running smoothly, we need to tell white lies.We don't know how many people are pathological liars, as few will admit to the condition if you go read all the blogs on ebay sellers and buyers complaints on all the search engine you will find many and still growing thses are power seller talking about there bad experince on selling it to bad buyers. yes there are bad sellers too we all should not depend on evilbay. you can defend it because you been shoppong and selling many years on ebay sooner or later it will reach you. you will be the lucky one if you dont get a bad seller selling you a bad item! or you as a sellers will get a bad buyer that will lie to get a free item. that what's trending around online and many are already using that tactic to use against the sellers. i been a ebay buyer and a seller since 2002 and in 2010 i was a power seller and I got 2 Award Certificate for best seller! i close my Ebay account in 2011. ebay made a mistake by hiring stupid customer service that are terribly incompetent. This is why i left them and never again bought or sold ever again.thats another story. i was making 5k a month part time while i was still working full time.anyways i think ebay is being run by many small sellers and you have the big company like target china warehouse,bestbuy you will see outlet items from them.they are the one that are making it with no issue with ebay. if you notice its the smaller group seller that are having more issue with ebay the policy and rules and many dishonest buyers filing. buying or selling is like 50% you might get a bad seller or 50% of the time you might get a bad buyer. ebay is getting very sloppy on there policy. and now you see many seller leaving ebay and going to other website. evilbay is a mess. just watch this fall and see how bad it will get ebay will get many returns and many buyers filing a chargeback after knowingly receiving a refund. look at the stock market for evilbay going down! and many seller selling fake and stolen items on ebay. people wake up! there remains a renewed and growing conviction that the decline of eBay’s core operations is starting all over again. It’s not at all uncommon for Internet companies to see a meteoric rise and fall (it’s practically become the rule), but eBay seems to be charting a different narrative: The rise and fall. And rise. And fall.today 8/20/2015 EBay and PayPal face a federal racketeering lawsuit, which focuses on the sale of counterfeit products.
Irvine-based company, Wimo Labs, filed a federal racketeering lawsuit against eBay Thursday. ebay having another bad year.
I sold an item. buyer took parts out from the item and sent it back to us, saying that item did not work, even warranty seals were broken. Ebay asked me to refund buyers money because it is ebay policy if buyer return any item as defective than seller has to return money including shipping cost. I explain ebay all the situation how this buyer is ripping me off but ebay has no way to find out who is wrong or right. Look like it is very tricky to do business on ebay. according to ebay recent policy you can easily ruin any seller or seller reputation, plus seller will also get discredit as reward. For me ebay is not good platform to do business.
I'm both a buyer and a seller on Ebay. I completely support the concept of people being able to run a small internet based business to supplement their income. I salute those people.
What I do not appreciate is big businesses that offer horrible customer service and lack of business ethics ripping people like me off and Ebay simply allows it.
I recently made a large purchase that was listed as "free shipping" yet when it was delivered I had to pay shipping. I contacted the seller and they pretty much told me too bad, I wouldn't be reimbursed. I contacted ebay and they said they couldn't help me.
Ebay doesn't offer buyer protection, they offer protection to the sellers who sell thousands of items a day.
Shame on you Ebay!
