rebel flags..

I tried to sell one item on eBay with payment via PayPal.   As soon as the buyer received the item, she reversed the payment (so I am out over $100) AND eBay is charging me 10% of the transaction.     It's in dispute resolution which can take months without any sure result.

 

Never again.   This has been a completely horrible experience.

I have been a seller on eBay since 2006. I sell from my home and just list items I no longer use or need. I do my best to give an accurate description including any flaws with as many pictures necessary for buyers to see what they are getting. In the past few sales I've had there has been problems. Buyers are very aware of ebays policies and are using them to get items for free. One recent experience was a purse I sold. It was new with tags and never been used. I listed it as such, including the measurements of the bag. The buyer complained the strap was not long enough for her so therefore she wanted a full refund. She refused to return the bag to me claiming she would not pay return shipping. In the dispute ebay gave her a full refund and let her keep the bag! Not that they could force her to mail it back to me! This is third such experience I've had. I did call ebays customer service and complained about the policies they have that screw the seller over. Of course it got me no where. There are quite a few buyers out there that have learned to get items free so beware. I will sell on Amazon from here on out.
