Anyone ever sold anything in bulk? Mrs makes cards and has been asked for 300-400. What sort of discount is deemed acceptable?

sold a guy some trainers a while back, he now says that they are the wrong size, and wants his money back, but i wont budge as hes trying to have one over on me. whats the worst he can do - can he get his money back through paypal even though he is lying? i even put no returns in my auction…

he cant do jack shit.

i sold some trainers 3 weeks ago for £11.50 and 20 quid shipping to germany……three weeks later i get a message 'have you sent these yet'…i say course i fucking have and gave him the tracking number and checked it myself, and it said 'tried to deliver on the 7/02 no-one home'…so he comes back to me like half hour later and says 'they didnt leave a card, i have been to the post ofice and they have returned to sender yesterday….can you send them back again as they wont charge you cos its their fault they never left a card and returned them it should be free for the re-send.
fuck off mate, you either didnt see the card, or you did see it and were to lazy to go and get them, when you finally did, they had sent them back.

dont know what im going to do now, dont want to be a cunt, but fucking £11.50 trainers are causing me more grief than signing on 20 new customers on contracts in the o2 shop. Evil

If you raise a dispute with someone, does it freeze the other persons account? Or will escalating it to a Paypal claim, get the persons account frozen?

as far as I am aware raising a dispute does not freeze your account. I think you would have to process the dispute through paypal to get to that stage. I hate leaving my money in Paypal and spend my balance as Quick as poss.

If paypal falls through, do I have my credit card (Halifax) as a back up? I've never claimed anything off a credit card before so not sure what procedures I need to take… apart from contacting the back obviously and not sure how drawn out it's going to be.

Dispute is nothing, if you escalate it to a paypal claim then paypal may freeze the funds associated with the transaction, they wont 'freeze the account'.
If you win the claim but the person had the wits to empty their account prior, paypal just wait and as soon as any money goes into their account again paypal nab it and its yours.
