2 small experiences of eBay from 2 sellers. One of them lost his store, again to the DSR problems relating to dispatch time (we all know how that really works) and the other about a buyer who refused to send back a “apparent” broken item.
Story 1 :
ebay steals from the sellers and offers no protection and takes the side of the buyer even if you have proof theyre lying. Ebay stated they no longer want sellers especially everyday small american sellers and now caters exclusively to large brand name store fronts who can affort to ship free and sell below wholesale. Ebay will fuck you every chance it gets closed down my store of 300+ sells a month due to three people saying i shipped slowly. I think i was in competition with one of their main sellers who wanted me kicked off this is extortion and ebay is a theft.
Story 2 :
ebay did the same thing to me.the buyer broke an item and claimed it was damaged in shipping.ebay didn’t care what i had to say and sided with the buyer even though buyer refused to send back or let me examine item for deliberate damage which is what e-mailed pics clearly showed.I closed my checking and credit card ebay had on file and told them good luck getting any refund money from me.They froze my paypal with£22.51 ($34) in it so I called them and told them now I’m not going to pay my listing fees either.Fuck em,I’ve had enough.They want over £297.99 ($450) from me but will have to settle for the £22.51 ($34) they stole.
