Actually, just realised I'm wrong. That means it takes it off the total price. Cunts!

I sold ebay item number 320223019199.

The buyer has just replied asking for a refund as "I had no idea G9 comes a female jacket. I was under impression it's size 40 in european sizes like it states. My sincere apology, but i do need to return it".

Do you think the description and the pants gave it away?

It's listed in Womens' clothes, it lists as a womens' size, it mentions ladies/women all through the auction, it's blindingly fucking obvious it's womens'.
That said depends if you want to risk a neg, even if it is unjustified.
I'd politely point out it's obviously womens', but that if they return it at their expense you will refund minus postage costs, then just relist.

Fact you've thrown in some prada pants too should be a major indicator Laughing out loud

Bet he was chancing it and thought he'd buy a girls piece for that "slim look" and upon delivery realised it was actually far too small.

How much should it be to send a pair of jeans to Thailand and would you lot ship out to Thai in the first place. Just an old pair of worn Nudies.

I sold this item on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd;=1&item;=120230206676&ssPageName;=STRK:MESO:IT&ih;=002

But i sent the guy a different unit to the one pictured,
The one i sent him has a few minor scratches on the exterior.
He is claiming it is far from "almost brand new"

I said the scratches were not visible in the pictures and that the item was in fact listed as in "used condition".

but offered him a £10 refund as he is not entirely happy.

He now says he wants to return it, But at £10 each way from UK to Japan should i foot the bill for it? or should i make him pay for shipping?
I didnt offer any return policy in my description.

Whats the best thing to do?
he seems a bit like he's just pissing and moaning about a few minor exterior scratches on a perfectly working "used" flash.

any had a go at the Best Offer thing on eBay?

how long does it take for a decision, or is it just up to the seller?

best offer is just up to the seller, they get the offer sent to them straight away, and can accept, decline, or counter offer. So just depends on how often they check their messages really.

just upto seller. think they have a day or two to think about your offer then (your offer) expires. if they accept though you cant back out.

they may have set it so it automatically accepts or denies offers of a certain amount as well

thats not the case

the following fees apply
Monthly Sales Price Per Transaction
£0.00 GBP-£1,500.00 GBP 3.4% + £0.20 GBP
£1,500.01 GBP-£6,000.00 GBP 2.9% + £0.20 GBP
£6,000.01 GBP-£15,000.00 GBP 2.4% + £0.20 GBP
£15,000.01 GBP-£55,000.00 GBP 1.9% + £0.20 GBP
above £55,000.00 GBP* 1.4% + £0.20 GBP

but with the e-cheque the max charge is £3.50

If your interested in sending large and incurring small fees use mass pay. A friend of mine sent £500 that way and saved the reciever about £20 compared to sending it in a normal way. Id only use this people u know or trust though as im not sure on what sort of level of protection is offered.
