eBay buyer and the soggy shirt

Found this strange eBay buyer, who actually wants to return a shirt to a seller because it “makes him sweat too much” I can’t figure out how the shirt does this. His had if for 60 days at this point too so there is that, and I am not sure sweating in it is a reason for a dispute but you know eBay buyers…

Here’s what the buyer has to say :

“I know it’s been some time since I bought this but would you consider allowing me to return this shirt. I break out into a sweat when wearing this & this is not good for my health since I do have a heart problem. Thank you.”

Propertyroom.com – eBay alternative

Propertyroom.com – Is a site which sells goods/items on behalf of various agencies. Sometimes there stuff, sometimes lost items/stolen recovered etc.. Site is US based, takes PayPal and other better payment methods, was setup in 1999 so its been around a while. I was told some of the prices on some of the stuff is quite good, I assume due to the nature of there items and there service there’s not going to be much in the way of customer service and guarantee’s.

Preloved – Classified Ad site

Came across this in a bit of junk mail, its that site that seems to pop up every time you search for anything and you end reading bits of peoples reviews (mostly car stuff). Well it seems they have themselves a classified ad site, theirs no fees so that’s a good start, its backed by a name that’s been around a while and it seems fairly active. Seems a bit of a alternative to Craigs List and Gumtree.

Why are items that area 2nd hand more expensive on eBay than new?

I’m sure other people have ran into this strange problem and its not just me, I have noticed over time that most 2nd hand/used items on eBay tend to be selling for more than if I just went out and purchased them new (or Amazon or where ever). Why is this? surely that makes no sense, the idea of eBay is to save money but I guess with all the madness it creates this is just another symptom, I’m going to call it “eBay syndrome” where people think just because its on eBay its the best deal in the world. Many times in the past I have purchased items somewhere else then eBay even if they was £2/3/4/5 more just because you never quite know whats going to happen with eBay since they place themselves above any and all rules/regulations/laws.

What are your experiences with this?
