I did the exact same thing last night. Oops Glad I'm not the only one, as it's what initially put me off going back to selling on there in the first place!Laughing out loud

Advice please:

If a seller sends an offer and I accept it, am I still able to use a discount code when checking out?

Thanks

If you're buying you should be able to. I did on an item a few weeks back.

Been sold a bit o fakery from the bay in my stupidity. What’s the best way to proceed? Do I have to send back or destroy after fake proven?

Depends, I wouldn't bother with the it's fake route - used to be a ballache for the buyer particularly if you had to get proof etc, but procedure might have changed now…

Contact seller directly stating it's fake via message first saying you want to return, see where it goes from there.

I always see if I can find anything else wrong with it first - different size, or damage/stains that weren't explicitly mentioned. It's much smoother winning a case for one of those reasons

What's with people bidding up to within 10% of a readily available item's retail price?

Is it just dumb dumbs that reckon they're getting a bargain?

Anyone here bought using the Global Shipping Programme? Do you know if you got reimbursed if the cost to import is less than quoted?

Am I being an idiot or can you not filter clothing searches by size in the (Android) app anymore?

I noticed they fiddled with the sizing filter recently, mucked it up, not sure why they've changed it, was fine the way it was before

Recently started selling again on eBay, is it now common place for paypal to hold on to funds for every single item sold?

Think PayPal hold funds until you start gaining a repetitive selling streak/history, if you haven't sold in a long while they will hold onto the funds for security reasons until feedback is received from the buyer or tracking shows it as successfully delivered, i ran into that issue also recently, sold a phone for £300+ but no actual funds for at least a week, had no clue it was a thing
