But basically, my question is, since this was not done through ebay. How likely am I to win this case?
Should I escalate to a claim and provide all relevant info?

Try via the PayPal app. Alternatively, if it says 72 hours, go back and withdraw bit by bit. It's been really buggy since the GUI overhaul.

Will say it again, the worst thing they did was removing a sellers ability to leave negative feedback
Would save a never ending stream of non payers as you could just block them from bidding

They should have an airbnb style(reservation cancelled 2 days before trip, this is an automated posting) automatically posted from ebay on their feedback page like
'non payment from buyer, no communication made in dispute'
'buyer requested to cancel under trivial reason'

Arguably more impartial and wouldnt involve retaliation, you never get the same money when rare stuff gets listed again, literally lose fiddy an item which the squares/robots would never understand

Was wondering where I stand with this:

Sold a pair of Nike trainers on eBay buyer got them for less than half RRP bnib I advertised them correctly and listed correct size, she has since been in touch to say they don't fit and wants a return, I told her she should've known the size before ordering and I will not offer a refund. She is now quoting consumer rights and saying she is disgusted etc etc. Should I just ignore her or are ebay likely to just refund her regardless?

Tell her you are not a business seller and do not accept returns, and that you have listed your item correctly as per ebay guidelines. If you had made a mistake in your listing you would issue an immediate refund without question, but you take great care in describing and photographing your items correctly, and are not at fault. Your item is exactly as described. Tell her your listing states you do not accept returns, and by buying your item, she has agreed to the terms of the sale. Tell her you understand her frustration and can only advise her to be sure of sizing before purchasing from a private seller on ebay, as private sellers do not accept returns.

Be nice and they usually dont bother opening a claim once you educate them. Ebay would only rule in her favour if you ignore her.

Thanks for that jimmo, going to see how that works with her, sent me three messages over the night begging for a refund. Ebay is more hassle than it's worth nowadays

Definitely more hassle than it's worth. I bought a bag off someone recently, he's still not posted it after 2 weeks and in his messages to me said "you got it very cheap (was an auction, not BIN), so I haven't rushed to send it out". Laughing out loud

Make sure you leave him negative feedback after you get it.

No worries. My last 4 sales were 2 non payments followed by 2 people telling me the item didnt fit, despite giving all accurate measurements. Its hard graft dealing with dunces and cunts on a regular basis, but its the only decent way to get the right price on certain items.

I remember getting an email about it but has paypal changed it's policy where you now have 75days after purchasing to file a claim? Think these yank is trying to scam acted shady ever since I sent payment can't send me a pic of the package before it was shipped and the tracking provided only tracks up until Canada bit weird he would choose the cheapest postage option when I added 50$ to my offer to cover postage smh

really annoyed anyway to find out who it is?

This keeps happening to me. Reckon it's the business sellers I undercut. Spoke to customer services and they wont tell you who it was or even the exact reason why it was taken down, just some generic drivvle. And now as there was 4 items removed they have locked my account for a week.

Funny thing was they also 'removed' an item that I sold in September for the same violation even though I had received positive feedback on it. Fucking idiots.

Still saids the same thing Laughing out loud Shouldn't paypal side with me if the seller doesn't even respond at all?

finding that buyers can be quite rude and agressive these days. i normally reserve that for low ballers and tyre kickers not the person you have actually bought something from.

I got three identical invoices today from a seller who seems very decent so system may well be sending multiple mails.
