After pulling 2 items in 15 years ebay decided to email a threat saying they will charge you anyway. I was able to sell the item on craiglist and avoid the outrageous fees - of course then I had to cancel the item. I really feel so strongly that so much money is made via Paypal and Ebay on millions of listings and yet little old me gets the ebay heavy hitter email after the 2nd cancelation - yes I know it is automated. I iwll never sell on ebay if I can help it - and if I do I will simply make the price stupidly high to cover the crazy fees
Participated in promotion to sell my ipad using ebay gauranteed price via coupon if ipad did not sell at ebay price. No coupon was ever isuued and repaeated calls to "customer support" have yielded nothing but promises whcih go unfullfilled. After one month I still do not have my coupon even after promises to award the coupon. I was passed from agent to agent having to repeat the whole problem again...same result...nothing. Coustomer support is a joke on us!
EBAY is so screwed up now, race for the bottom.
So frustrating, time to move on
How long does it take for ebay bucks to reappear to spend after refund?
For anyone saying a non-payer is the same as a non sale... you are wrong. You have to wait 2 days before you can even open a case, then 2 more days at least to be able to relist. AND thats not including the time it takes to relist the item which is not always guaranteed to sell again!! Its really annoying when you have 2 or more bidders that would have most likely paid.. but instead you get this **bleep** that out bids them and then doesnt pay. Garbage system absolutly no insurance for sellers while buyers can do whatever they want with no risk. Here is my simple solution. If ebay refuses to give auctions the "pay when you bid"
option, then the only other thing to do is give the buyer an option. They can either agree to their account automatically getting charged when sale ends, OR they will agree to paying a standard 5.00 fee to the seller if they do not pay in 2 days. None of this 4 day **bleep** thats way too long for someone trying to run a business.
*So why do i keep using ebay? Im actually on my way out. Been selling more items on craigslist with 0 problems, and faster transactions. I like selling online, so if anyone knows of a site that doesn't have these issues please let me know!!!
