I sold someone some jeans in November on the bay, posted them out after they paid and had no feedback after like 2 weeks. Messaged them asking of they had got them, they replied saying that they hadn't been able to get to the depot to pick them up yet and they might be on the way back. They arrived back at mine about 3 weeks ago but the guy has never messaged back about a refund or getting them sent out again.

Am I home free to sell them again?

It depends how they paid. If they made payment direct from their card they have longer to make a claim. Think the period is 6 months in this country but might be different in their country. If they made payment from their paypal balance they have 45 days to make a claim

Does anyone know if you can get your money back through paypal for a fake product?

My friend bought an LV bag through ebay but the seller messaged her asking if she would pay just via paypal and not ebay, stupidly my friend agreed.

Apparently my friend has lost the claim because paypal itself will only cover the arrival of products and not its authenticity.

Has anyone had a similar experience or know how my friend can get her money back?

Did they pay from their paypal balance or did the funds come direct from their credit card? They can get their money back through the credit card company if the latter. If PayPal have already made a decision on a claim there's no chance of getting it back through them

I think she used a visa debit card, just having a look online now and it seems she might be able to get a chargeback from HSBC but it's a little unclear.

youve got no chance if its an authenticity claim - you'd be better claiming that it never turned up

If it was paid through her visa debit then yeah, you should be able to make a chargeback. Does the seller have proof of delivery? If not, say it never arrived

Yeah I think the seller sent the tracking number through paypal. It seems like visa debit chargebacks are possible but not openly advertised and at the discretion of visa unlike with credit cards which are under the credit act- thanks for the help!

on a normal auction setup, how do you end it early so they can buy it for a set price that you have both agreed to?

just make sure they are the current highest bidder, then there is a drop down box in my ebay, select end item, then sell to current highest bidder, then just send the invoice with high P+P to make it the correct amount, thus also saving on fees

p.s man up, bitch slap that ho

this one is so strange. ive signed into ebay, and then i press 'sell' and it makes me sign in again, so i put all my details in correct and its not responding at all, just flashes and stays on the same page when i press enter. so i try the lost password thing, and enter a new password and then done exactly the same thing again, and its done the same thing again. wtf. ;evil:

i guess someone will say its a cookie problem, so 'remove cookies' from options at the top (tools > delete cookies or delete recent history)

just rung and they made me delete everything, signed into ebay again = fine. pressed 'sell' = made me sign in again, and nish again. how fucking odd.
they said, sorry nothing we can do, try another computor if it still doesnt work ring back.
but if it lets me sign in to manage and check my account, but doeant let me sign in to sell. how the hell does that work? :puzzleD:

I get that all the time with firefox, noble. Close the tab you have eBay open in, then close firefox, then start firefox again and open a new tab, go to ebay and sign in and then try and sell. Should work, presuming you are using firefox

Anyone know if you still have to pay ebay selling fee if you have a nonpaying winner then you relist or do you have to report them as non paying?

report as non paying, you can report after 4 days, and fees back after another 4, if you get to this point they also cannot leave feedback
