I guess I can now stop with the polite messages (thinking a newish ebayer had made a error), and just relist.
I've had the same thing. Sometimes I wonder if people do it in the hope that a seller will send the item without checking PayPal first.

I was thinking the exact same beatch, but as it worked out the payment is now in my account.
The buyer (used Paypal loads, but newish to ebay alledgedly) had made a error.

Seems to be so many tyre kickers on ebay these days who just make pointless lowball offers and watch items without ever bidding.

Anyone seen this before? Pre-emptively adding custome etc before even sending the item?

some one tried to fuck me on ebay, i obviously went in. got the email below from paypal, does this mean they will take the hit for me?

After careful consideration of this case, we've decided in favour of the
buyer.

PayPal has determined the buyer should receive a refund. Due to the unique
circumstances of the claim, and your PayPal account history, we will refund
the buyer on your behalf. Your account will not be debited.

What were the unique circumstances of the claim? I had a weird one recently. Somebody bought something, claimed it was faulty, sent it back with half of the product missing. I uploaded a photo to PayPal and they decided in my favour within ten minutes. The email said something along the lines of "we have decided in your favour due to the good standing of your account"

Got an international buyer who wants to pay via bank transfer. Anyone know what the risks are in terms of chargeback on international versus UK?

Very low risk of the payment being reversed BUT there are charges involved and if they don't tell the bank that they want to pay the charges at both ends, you'll end up lumbered with a fee. Also, make sure they pay in your currency, not theirs, otherwise you'll get charged something ridiculous for the exchange

If there's an item with a Buy it now price and a reserve, does the bidding have to go above the reserve before the BiN disappears?

i've had this before.

basically paypal subsidising buyer keeping product and getting refund.

was it a big amount? mine was for about £30

Cheers robii. Always gone through PayPal before but this guy doesn't have a PayPal account and seems genuine (don't they all!!) I'll tell him to make the payment in GBP

just a day or 2 late sending an item and got this message lol ebay's full of cunts

Hey man, you didn't answer my question. Why haven't you sent the jeans yet? You're supposed to ship it within 2 business days after the payment. I sent the payment on 25th, it's the 27th and almost 28th now. Send the item today as stated in your listing please. I noticed you reply to my other message… which I sent on the 21st. This is awful communication and it will reflect on your feedback.
