I’ve had the same a few times and ebay will never find in your favour. Massive buyer bias. Unfortunately you’ll have to take the hit and I am pretty sure ebay took the money from my PayPal without me even approving it

it's farcical.

I sold a used down jacket, described as such, did have some hard-to-remove fluff in velcro of the collar. jacket otherwise excellent. returns not accepted. buyer requests return saying jacket not as described. Phoned eBay, they said I'd be better off accepting the return because they'd likely find in the buyer's favour if it went to a dispute.

So that's the outward postage cost, the return postage cost, plus the hassle of re-listing - because there was fluff in the jacket's velcro.

better to just photo every tiny little thing and list measurements etc just to try and cover yourself
