That's why I stopped using eBay. I use to buy and sell stuff all the time on eBay. The last straw is when I got 3 deadbeats in a row so I had to keep doing second chance offers, and they charged me each time, I had no idea. Then i kept getting people that started disputes over shipping costs. Entirely ef EBay.
sucks nowadays. I don't think I'm going to use them again if I can find an alternative. They only let me charge $9.00 shipping for a package that cost $26.00 to ship. Then they made me use Paypal as the payment method, then they confiscated $7.00 as a fee. Plus I have to pay the listing fee which is like $2.50. So when all is said and done, they've confiscated the entire (insufficient) shipping amount and then some!
Yeah I've heard some real horror stories. Thankfully I never had any nightmare buyer stories back when I used to sell actively (years ago). But now eBay itself is just crap.
Oh, don't forget the time I spent $200 on something. It was never sent. Contacted seller. No reply. Filed dispute. Seller send something and gave the tracking number to eBay. They dropped the dispute. I received and empty box. I filed a dispute. It went back and forth for a while, then they dropped the dispute and said there is nothing they can do because the seller is in China.
That's really crappy. I wish there was a decent alternative to eBay. I think yahoo offers an auction service, but I don't know if very many people use it.
Yeah if anyone could build an auction service to rival ebay it'd be Amazon.
Gunbroker.com has stuff besides guns and really friendly folks on it. Worth a look.
