I have been on ebay and paypal since 2000, in the last 5 years, it is a horror story ~ the new trick now, they have refunded and held my funds numerous times, and i have no recourse. since this new asshole ceo on ebay , has made these ridiculous rules, I as a seller am being scammed by buyers, who buy, then contact me, and say something is wrong with vintage jewelry, give them some money back (or else), ebay, does not refund those "partial payment fees" so I am out the money, or get a negative. I also canNOT give back a negative.
I had one customer, last week, who bought the vintage jewelry, gave me a good feedback, then a week later , contacted me, saying a pin broke she wanted a refund, I said NO ., the transaction is done .,
so, she FILED A DISPUTE WITH EBAY , AS ITEMS NOT DESCRIBED.. THEY INTURN HELD THE FULL MONEY FOR THE JEWELRY ($55.00) ., AFTER SHE GAVE ME A GOOD FEEDBACK., AND IT WAS 3 WEEKS, LATER... (right before the dead line to file a complaint ) it is now pending, I am out the money and jewelry. I have given back OVER 100 DOLLARS JUST IN THE LAST MONTH, it is a SCAM NOW ., AND PAYPAL, HOLDS MY FUNDS, I have had JEWELRY SENT BACK BROKEN ., and STILL PAYPAL, gives them my money.
EBAY IS NO BETTER...One operator HUNG UP ON ME.. and said, if I don't like Ebay , close the account..
NOW, I HAD 5000 POSITIVE FEEDBACK 100 PERCENT, UP UNTIL THE TIME, SOME ASSHOLE CEO, CHANGED THE "RULES", AND SAID THAT SELLERS CAN NO LONGER LEAVE NEGATIVES.. SINCE THEN and about 2 years now , I have had many negative s... they limit your account, they hold your FUNDS THAT YOU SELL, (UNTIL THEY RELEASE IT) ... AND MIND YOU ~ YOU HAVE TO "SHIP THE JEWELRY" AND HAVE YOUR FUNDS HELD AT THE SAME TIME..
IT IS A SCAM... NOT GOOD FOR SELLERS, THEY ARE LEAVING IN DROVES AND GOING OVER TO WWW.EBID.NET.. PLEASE HELP ME ., I SAY ON MY AUCTIONS ,THIS IS COSTUME JEWELRY , AS IS AS FOUND, YOU BID IT YOU WIN IT.. I TOLD THEM, THAT IF THEY WANT TO GUARANTEE "BUYERS PROTECTION" , THEN YOU PAY FOR IT..
HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT , YET , ON THE LISTING FORM , YOU HAVE "THIS AUCTION IS THE SELLERS FULL RESPONSIBILITY ." WELL IF THAT IS TRUE , HOW ARE "THEY " HOLDING MY FUNDS.???
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.. I NEED A LAWYER .. I AM SICK OF THESE "NEW RULES." !! ITS RIDICULOUS.
I STARTED EBAY IN 2000 ., IT WAS SOOO MUCH FUN , I TREATED ALL MY CUSTOMERS WITH RESPECT, AND GAVE THEM A GOOD AUCTION..
THIS IS NOT AN "AUCTION"., EVEN AT "CHRISTIES", YOU BID IT YOU BUY IT .., SO WHAT THE HELL IS EBAY AND PAYPAL DOINGS..???
THANKYOU, THERE ARE MANY MANY MANY SELLERS ON EBAY., WHO HAVE HAD IT., ITS JUST NOT FAIR., AND I SAY WE SHOULD STRIKE...
