Suggestions for eBay:

-Be an expert in items that sellers are listing

-view professionally every item descriptions and pictures before allowing seller to list it

-correct and advise new sellers in their descriptions BEFORE LISTING APPROVAL

- require sellers TO GET DIPLOMA in order to become a seller

-educate new sellers with advise, notes, connection before punishing them for making mistakes. Simply do not allow listing!

-stay on top of listing. Filter, control before buyer pointed that item it's fake or not as described.

-sellers and buyers depend/rely and trust ebay

Thank you

Well, Sellers, doesn't matter if the buyer doesn't get insurance because in the rare event the item they won somehow gets lost in shipping, (not your fault, you had Tracking), Ebay will ALWAYS find in favor of the buyer and guess who pays? That's right, YOU the Seller!  So I say, don't bother telling your buyers that they need to buy insurance because either way, they're covered. But you as the seller, are SCREWED!

Well Robert, this is why you play by Ebay/Paypal's rules when it comes to buyer protection instead of trusting your seller, always be aware of your buyer protection period while you listen to a suspected seller's empty promises, especially if the seller is from Hong Kong or China as stall tactic is a common sight there.

People complain that the Ebay changes segregate buyers and sellers, causing many to go straight to filing cases and/or leaving seller less than favourable feedback, but there's a reason for that.
When up against non-payers, file UPI cases ASAP, do the right thing for the wellbeing of you and other fellow sellers.

The 45 day delay tactic cost me also. 45 days of promises of a refund for an item that wasn't received until bingo, times up, you're screwed. This fraud was aided and abeted by ebay who could plainly see all the email exchanges and promises of a refund but that meant nothing in lue of the 45 day get out of jail free card for the seller. This scam is even more clever when you realize you can't even flag the perpetrator for their conduct because you loose you feedback rights also. My criminal even had the temerity to tell me that ebay was on his side inspite of ebay telling me they had told him to refund the money. Of course I have no access to any exchange between ebay and this person becuase they don't want to violate his rights to ripping people off.

If Ebay didn't have to pay some 15K people for playing on a computer, we might have a better style here on Ebay. 

Sadly it is becoming a bad place to sell. 

They try to convince you that they are selling you " traffic", which is a total joke. Some items that should get a ton of views get like maybe 4 or 5 within the auctions " prime" span.

Then you have the FVF which is just greed, Paypal nickel and dimes everyone silly, and then you have to pay more for shipping because you didn't get the box size right!

Ebay needs to get it's act together. 

Ebay will probably be acquired by a larger company that will offer the same services for a better price.

Happens 9/10......

 

Get your stocks shuffled.

Re: COMPLAINT AGAINST EBAY

You are a joke...

I ordered a product with the transport options available on the seller site.

So I'm guilty for paying the transport and article and not receiving the article??? maybe i should pay a fine for saying the truth, poor seller just earned 112 bucks and keeps the product to himself, does not answer any email sent and all is ok....

I could be in China, Canada or Germany, If you can't do the service you should not anounce or promote on your website, if you say you ship to Portugal, and if you propose a freigth for the product you're responsible for it, you probably are one of those that finds normal to keep the money for a service/product  that you never did or delivered, and you complain about the FB and all the rest bul**bleep**, you should be trown out of Ebay, you act as a thieve, you should not worry about people trashing your FB and DSR, if you are honest, there will be no bad critics, off course honesty from what I see is not one of your strongest virtues you're more worried with the feedback than with the fact that the item was not delivered, althoug it was paid, this is not very important, you have the money in your pocket.... so **bleep** the client...

**bleep** off is what I say to you, you should identify yourself and not hide being fake names, it just proves you're up to no good...

Be really carefull as this seller as over 84 cases simmilar to this at an average of 100usd to 300usd he is making good money  with the help of Ebay, and the best part is that you cant even give feedback as with the case closed they do not let you acess the product service ratings, well made the mafia skeme.

Dont buy with this guy


You're in Portugal for crimminie's sake! And I'll betcha ya told the seller to ship the cheapest way possible!

Now everyone here knows why I don't ship International. 

 

 

There are 3 steps to prevent ID's like this from trashing your FB & DSR's:

 

 

 

1. At Home Page after signing in wave your cursor over the Account tab & click on Site Preferences in the drop down menu. Find Shipping preferences & click on Show at the end of the row. Find Exclude shipping locations from your listings & click on Edit. Put a check mark on all options including North America as NA does not include US. Put check mark in Apply to all current live listings & click on Apply. See below.

 

 

 

2. Find Buyer requirements on the same page & click on Show then Edit. Put a check mark in the box under Buyers in locations to which I don't ship. Put a check mark in the box in front of Apply above settings to active and future listings. If you truly do not want to be bothered with requests to ship internationally put a check mark in the box at the bottom of the page next to Don't allow blocked buyers to contact me. Click on Submit.

 

 

 

3. Log into your PayPal account & click on Profile in the sub-menu bar at the top of the page. Under My Selling ToolsGetting paid and managing my riskBlock payments Update . Put a check on Yes under Block payments sent to me in a currency I do not hold: and Block payments from sellers: Have non-US PayPal Account (See Below.).Scroll to the bottom of the page & click on Save. Needless to say, as you're in these areas & have other options that are available, you should adjust your settings for your comfort level.

 

 

 

Hope this helps!

Item paid for but never received.  Seller & tracking says can't deliver at address but have always have products shipped to the same address.  I filed a complaint with Ebay and it was in favor of the seller.  I tried contacting the seller many times without response.  Not happy with Ebay!

My complaint relates to the Ebay search where you want only OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) items and all sorts of aftermarket crap shows up that you have to weed through to see anything closely related to Original parts or equipment.  The "best match" search is totally worthless too and should be eliminated



 


That's because the lines are filled with keyword stuffing, a form of Black Hat SEO. Someone fills the line with a bunch of words, even if not relevant and this gets higher rankings.

Re: COMPLAINT AGAINST EBAY

in reply to ankhhoodiegirl713

Can someone help me? Ebay awarded me a refund to be paid when the seller signed for the returned item. Following tracking, the item has been sat in her post office waiting for her to collect it since 1st June. Now ebay have told me I won't get a refund and have closed the case.


The seller has deliberately not collected the item therefore making sure I don't get any money. This must mean that all sellers who don't want to refund a buyer simply have to make sure they don't sign for anything and they won't have to pay - isn't this fraud?


I am so p----d off right now. I have emailed the CEO and am writing to the complaints dept but ebay just doesn't give a toss. They have millions rolling in regardless of how people are being ripped off.


I hate all the guff in the customer service emails eg you are a valued customer etc - what a load!


Sorry to all that have problems - it stinks, doesn't it!!

Boy what a common organization ebay is . You got to be crazy to deal with them. THEY MUST HAVE SPECIAL CLASS'S TO TEACH THEIR EMPLOYEES TO LIE . Every try to get a answer to a problem 15 people and 15 difftent answers  . I think they are a big fraud . Those 72 hours to answer a issue never ever happens . That Department must have died .They are selling illegal items that are in direct violation of Federal Law . Hope they put some of them away in the big house  . Ever notice you never can get higher than a supervisor . Ever try to close your ccount , now there is a real experience .Will take you hours to get it done if it ever happens .  The one thing they never for get or mess up in your favor is when they want their money . They grab it and run . I strongle suggest if you are having  trouble with them send a regestered letter to their legal department and make them sign for it . They are than put on notice that you may be willing to sue them . They have lost 4 or 5 cases in the last month where they pulled sellers items  off wrongly and the courts have ruled in the sellers favor and awarded the sellers money . In one recent case a judge in Philda Pa gave a seller 10 K for ebay taking his stuff off and down illegally . Seems the monkeys must be hitting the wrong buttons  again  . I am not shore the mangement knows or cares what is going on . Long as their stock is high and the higher up's are getting their millions a year they don't give a hoot .
