The bottom line is, Ebay is letting the buyer do this to you and other sellers. The buyer is just taking advantage of Ebay's ill conceived system. I don't even blame the buyer, as far as he/she is concerned, he/she sees every Ebay seller as a scammer. This is an Ebay problem, not a buyer problem. Ebay needs to take their boot off the neck of every seller, and set up a system that is less oppressive to sellers. Assigning a Defect rate for sellers based on conditions out of the seller's control is NOT going to do that. Ebay should re-think what they are doing. It looks to me like they have finally gone too far. We'll see on the 20th of August, but I think this time they are going to make a major dent in the business. I can think of a couple of ways the Defect rate will lose busines for both Ebay and Paypal. I will decribe how in future posts.
Please post the auction number that you are referring to.
Happens all the time. I just had one over a #$%$ buyer saying they were shorted 2 count of an item that totalled 20 cents. YEAH ! 20 CENTS and the buyer opened a case, I sent him a second order at my exepense (a whopping $3 loss for me) then the freak says that's not enough, he wants and apology. So, my wife being a lawyer, we sent him an apology. A summons to court. Now for his little $1 scam, we're going to ruin his life.
The buyer did not take any action on your request."......Have you ever received one of these emails from Ebay. You thought maybe the buyer would rescind his/her scalding negative comments for the $3 item he bought from you which he claims you scammed him/her into buying and ruined his/her entire life. No, he will not accept your refund offer instead he/she will make it his/her life mission to destroy your business at all costs,. Obviously he/she is a Competitor, Vindictive person taking out his problems on you or just a complete Lunatic......But, Ebay asks that you the seller honor the buyers decision and suffer the consequences Ebay will impose on you by adding defects to your seller account. C'mon, Ebay if you don't want to give powersellers a discount, just don't give it...but please don't subject Decent Longtime Ebay sellers to this type of TOTAL NONSENSE!

I find it fascinating that after all these years Sybil continues to make up multiple names then converse with each of them. Someone needs some serious self analysis. They are qualified for the job or at least was at one time.
Fees on shipping, which eBay claims "are to prevent sellers from over-charging for shipping" ~ so every professional seller just added those fees into shipping price. Pass the cost on to the consumer. Great idea. Sure as death and taxes, eBay's beancounters will always find some new way to nickle and dime sellers out of business. Only thing the beancounters didn't figure is that most professional sellers have already been pulling their inventory off eBay.
You Forgot Category % fees & Dollar amount % fees.. You need to be a CPA to figure all your fees. Seller Simple Jack is sured to be Duked by the Fee structure alone. Did you know every time Donahue changes the Rules he signs the seller up for a New Fee or something Free for a buyer like free return shipping? Its a complex machine when KISS rules the day.
listing fee, seller store fee, final value fee, Paypal base fee paypal percentage fee. What else is there ?
Their site is so GD slow all the time and now it's totally down in the US for almost 13 hours now.
Yawn! July 31. I thought that 2 measly cent gain was a nice signal yesterday, but not enough to cut a great vacation short. Oh well, too predictable. Ebay certainly won't go to $60 but will float back and forth in a pump and dump until more investors catch on and it repeats in the 40s. Anyhow, it is great to see the positive changes Alumni made on this board. Funny how one or too trolls leaving made all the difference. Ebay should note that and stop foisting them on us! Cool. Peace out. Hoist the mainsail for another beautiful day. The rich really do have it too easy.
Your positing is 9 hours later than mine.....it was goofy last night. I tried getting onto Ebay with multiple products....nada.
"That's what happens to ol Sully when he hits the bottle for breakfast. What a drunken fool."
"I've had no issues with the website whatsoever. I must be you."
What?????? I might want to take another crack at that sentence,it makes no sense whatsoever. "HICCUP"
That's what happens to ol Sully when he hits the bottle for breakfast. What a drunken fool.
The difference lies in the profit margins. AMZN holds inventory, sells directly to consumers, its margins are very small like 2-3%. EBAY is a platform, does not hold inventory or sells to consumers, it collects transation fees, its margins are many times higher than AMZN's. Alibaba is like Ebay. EBAY is undervalued.
Are you really this stupid???? There are no other posters from the south except your buddy Charles?? I live in Collin County and am not your friend Charles.. I talked to you before Johnny about Plano and Richardson where you said you lived in the 80's. I could have easily used the west coast "you guys" or the east coast "youse guys" but y'all is the southern slang. I know that Charles haunts y'all in every id that comes along, but this isn't him. Now try and get a grip on reality Johnny.
"We all jUST laugh at you calling everyone…"
When you say, "We", there is not one person here who does not realize that the "we" you are referring to are all your other ids.
There is no one here who talks to you except John. No one.
