Default nothing else I can do except wait for negative feedback?

Posted By: Joe D.

I won a card on eBay (just $50) a week and a half ago.

The seller lists insurance as optional - but does not list an amount... I always opt for insurance.

So, I used eBay's "contact seller" to ask for the dollar amount I should add for insurance. No response.

So, I used eBay's "request total" and again asked for the dollar amount I should add for insurance. No response.

After a week went by, I once again used the "contact seller" feature... I mentioned my prior two attempts and yet again asked for the dollar amount I should add for insurance. No response.


I'm not sure there is much else I can do?

Even though I made three attempts... I am guessing this will end with me getting my first negative feedback.

Did you pay for it without insurance and not receive the card? If you haven't paid for it and they haven't responded why would you get a negative. Unless I missed something I didn't really see the reasoning....

I didn't pay - because I am waiting for the total... or some sort of reply from the seller.

I get the feeling that eventually I will receive a negative feedback as a non-payer.

I think it will all be ok.....maybe there was an emergency, or they weren't smart and went out of town without mentioning it? I doubt you will get a negative until they respond in some way....How is their feedback?

Hey Joe, You can go on the USPS website and the have a way to figure out the amount by taking the final value fee and just add it to the shipping amount. I know it's so much for the first $100 of value and like a $1 for each hundred of value there after. It's better than a negative and a delay in receiving you card IMO. Best of luck.

Go to the seller's contact information and call him directly.

I wouldn't pay anything until someone returned my email. I would rather have 1 neg then be out $50.00

dan- hate to disagree, but a neg feedback is bad...rather be out $50.

joe- try contacting eBay and explain the situation, maybe they have his email on file or a phone number (that way you are not just simply contacting him thru eBay, you can send him an email or call him directly)...

worst case send him the $50 plus a few extra bucks to cover whatever the insurance might be.

I agree.....I wouldn't really want to tarnish 1200 perfect feedback over $50. I was also thinking the same thing...send the guy the $50 plus whatever shipping was, plus $2....and ask them to insure it...I have done that before when I didn't get responses and it always worked out ok. Put the money in the mail and then email the seller telling them what you did...end of story....regards

I tacked on $3 additional for insurance above the stated shipping fee -
and payed by PayPal.

not sure I will ever see this card (not much confidence) - but we shall see.
