  • This week we have two unbelievably ridiculous complaint examples: First, there is the person who says their item is "Not as described" because "it's missing the white thingy". They don't know what's missing, but something is missing...We asked for an explanation. It appears the customer believes an additional item was supposed to be included, BUT THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, however the listing clearly states, multiple times, WHAT IS INCLUDED AND WHAT IS NOT INCLUDED, WHAT IS THE "THINGY"??? but we haven't received a response yet. Second example is from a fellow who says the item he ordered is "Not as described" because "it does not work with the item he ordered" WHAT THE "BLEEP" DOES THAT MEAN ??????...C'MON!!!!...This is what happens when Ebay makes their "RESOLUTION" system Too easy for buyers to file complaints. If they can't accurately describe the problem, they should NOT BE ABLE TO FILE A COMPLAINT!!!!!!!!!!!

    You shouldn't have said "probably" shows you are the "dolt" more certain of yourself. If you
    really think the market is going down another 20 to 30 percent, then shout it loud and clear...non of this "probably" nonsense.......but you said "probably"....So you're a Weenie too!!!!!........ AAPL is NOT going to 40 any time soon...The market isn't going down another 20 to 30 percent any time soon. This past week, we saw a flush out on increasing volume, that is typical as a correction comes to an end...Regarding a "Death Cross", in the context of a bull market ( which this is) it means a dip and run back up........Look for that in the coming weeks and months.

    Get your facts straight !There was no Paypal chargeback fee one year ago. It has nothing to do with Obama. Charge-backs are often caused by fraudulent buyers from Ebay. As far as this stock. Ebay/Paypal are now trading at about a 15% premium to the split up. Ebay sales have dropped dramatically in the last few days, which means Paypal revenue has also dropped dramatically. Keep an eye on what Ebay sellers are saying about sales. If the sales slump continues, both Ebay and Paypal are a Sell, as obviously there should be no premium to the stock if there is a sales slump.

    It is very simple. I wanted my order shipped to an alternate address, it could be another residence of mine, a friend or a relative, it doesn't mater. The seller sent it to an incorrect address, and Ebay will not let me file a claim, however, apparently everyone else is entitled to file claims against me even when my item has been delivered to the correct address. It is OBVIOUS FAVORITISM!!!!!

  • In the last week our cancellations have been more than our completed orders. Also, returns are way above normal in the last month. This can't continue or it's lights out !

  • If they impose this fee too much, you can expect an Investigation and it's going to cost the bottom line.

    We purchased an item from an Ebay seller with twice as much feedback as us. we wanted the item shipped to our Ebay buyer's address. The Ebay seller sent it to a wrong address. Our Ebay buyer filed a claim against us, but when we attempted to file a claim against the Ebay seller., there was no option to do it, only a "Contact Seller" option. So Our Ebay buyer can ding us, but we can't ding the Ebay seller. Looks like Ebay is playing Favorites !!!

  • the reason, or sellers return policy states in their Ebay listing. Example: We recently had a buyer file a claim as "Not as Described". He claimed the item he received did not match the listing because the packaging was slightly different. The Brand, model number and the item were the same, but due to manufacturer's variations there were differences in the packaging graphics. Ebay ruled in his favor and requires the seller (us) to pay for a return shipping label which Ebay will charge to our seller account. This new rule will make us, and many other sellers, re-think our selling strategy on Ebay. Also note: The buyer never contacted us. The buyer paid extra for one day shipping, which Ebay also requires refunding. We repeatedly emailed the buyer, providing links to the manufacturer's website, showing the item he received was indeed what we listed, but the buyer ignored us. When a buyer ignores the seller and goes directly to Ebay claims, more often than not, the buyer is a scammer. In this case, Ebay clearly rewarded the scammer.

    This Board's owner (Sully) busted nothing!........His only response is either his "eBay store is doing great" or a question of whether someone is "actually selling on ebay"...not much of a repertoire. Apparently you are one of his alter egos who posts more smoke screen snow job Nonsense

    Well, Ebay will continue to steer some people away from selling on their site, and other sellers will make adjustments. The two examples I gave are for retail items, "new in box". Very likely Ebay is trying to discourage us from selling these types of items, because their "Partners" sell the same items.

    Never made that claim - You are confused

  • stoptheinsanity2000 by stoptheinsanity2000 Jun 19, 2015 11:41 PM Flag

    It seems there is an epidemic of buyers who file claims for petty reasons. Here are two examples. Example 1: Buyer files a claim "Item not received" after 5 days. This buyer had special shipping instructions which caused a delay a 2 day delay in order processing, he was notified, but could not bother to check the tracking status on the UPS site or ask us, when it would not show properly on the Ebay site. So he filed a claim, His item will be arriving tomorrow, but now he's blocked. Example 2: Buyer files a claim, two weeks after he received his order, claiming "Not as Described" He says the product packaging appears different than in the picture on Ebay. The item is the same, same brand name just different graphics on the packaging This was a computer cable. He is now on the block list......all the funds for both orders have been placed on hold by Paypal and will stay on hold for two weeks...... and of course.....our sales have fallen off a cliff again!

    "What's being said in a social media group: POSTER #1: Very good questions. Ebay's algorithm "hiding" of small sellers items seems to involve "rolling blackouts" in which one's items are only visible to a specific region or area of the country for brief periods of time, resulting in a "geographical clustering" of whatever sales you may get.

    POSTER #2: I see long periods of time go between sales, then several will roll in at the same time. Then it stops again. Like they turn me on and off. I had long suspected exactly the things you are talking about, but never had any proof.
    POSTER #3: My god am i glad i found this group! I can't tell you how many times over the past 3 years i've spent hours & hours on the phone with ebay reps explaining this what I called "cycle" of sales... 2 days nothing then clusters of sales... I'm now wishing I had paid attention to where the items sold to... I think from this point on I start charting every sale."

  • Many US based Ebay sellers are reporting a recent dramatic drop in sales. Many believe Ebay is imposing rolling blackouts to their Ebay stores. Store traffic is down, sales are erratic. Many sellers are reporting, the typical remedy of adding more listings is NOT working. Some say their sales slowdowns may be attributed to massive listings by import sellers who typically sell KNOCK OFF products. This massive influx of import listings, many duplicates under multiple Ebay ID, causes sellers of genuine products listings to be obscured.

  • The customer has not paid...even sent us an e-mail letting us know they were not going to pay, stating they clicked "buy-it-now" by mistake. it's been three weeks now...we have no FVF credit and we can't even ask for it....C'MON!!!!!

  • The customer asked us if he could return an item. We told him, no problem, just send the item back and he will receive a full refund including his original shipping. Well, apparently he wants us to pay his return shipping, even though our listing clearly states "BUYER PAYS RETURN SHIPPING", so now he opened a case? We offered a full refund according to Ebay's guarantee, apparently that doesn't matter, Ebay needs to review his claim for the return shipping? Why? Ebay shouldn't let the buyer open a case if we agreed to a full refund. WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE???? ...... and I suppose we will get a Defect for this too?

  • this past week up to today...We've garnered one sale this weekend on Ebay with more than 3000 items available in our Ebay store.......That's not say the least!

    It's not competition if Ebay owns Magento. It's control and destroy. If they didn't own it then it definitely would be competition. EBay acquired Magento for over $180 Million but in the process Magento executives went to great lengths to avoid paying out employees who helped built the company in the years prior to the eBay takeover. As a result, they created a few disgruntled former employees. Magento is something to look at and learn from, but I wouldn't recommend using it because it appears Ebay has screwed it up, as expected.

    It's in the works, but still no simple App to tie it together...check out "Magento" to see some of what's been done so far.
