My thinking is if they did something once,they'll probably try to do it again.I rather not take that chance.The aggravation isn't worth the money.

Best of luck!! Hope you win !! Let us know.
eBay sided with him. Obviously, that was expected.

Just hope I get the card returned in a quicker fashion than it took him to determine he didn't like it.

It used to be ebay would not enforce returns on items where positive feedback has been left by the buyer. Not sure if that is still the case.

Ebay has really gotten out of hand. I recently sold some vintage cards on Ebay for ONE PENNY and the buyer wanted free shipping. Coupled with all the negatives aspects (6 months to return, high fees, etc), is the reason I am unloading my stuff on Net54.

Sorry to hear that.But,it wasn't unexpected.When it comes to selling on ebay,they don't protect you at all.
If the card looks worse than when you sent it out,I would contact ebay about it again and let them know he damaged it.Maybe they'll change their mind if that's the case.

That's unbelievable and pretty sad they'd even ask for free shipping.

Yes, I was pretty much warned by everyone that it's very unlikely to win those cases, so I was already prepared.

I'm hoping it doesn't look any worse -- of course I didin't see any problems to begin with -- as I don't want the headaches. I just want it to be over with.

It was a $950 sale, so I'm a bit disappointed it happened. I would have been way more understanding had he not given positive feedback and had he let me know about any issues within three to five days after getting it. The combo of positive feedback and 17 days was a bit frustrating, especially after he tried to claim 17 days isn't long at all (maybe others agree with him and I'm off on that one).

I guess I'm more worried about long-term effects for me on this. It makes me very uncomfortable that somebody can still ask for their money back six months later. I just don't know how to prepare for that. I assume those woudn't happen very often, but still, makes me wonder about getting off this eBay thing.

Lol. Great post! ONE PENNY
Yeah Ebay used to be great a long long time ago. Their fees coupled with paypal fees are way way too much. Its like they are partners with my stuff! lol.

No, the buyer is a jerk off and it's a valuable lesson in just never clicking into the FU-bay website for any reason in the first place. PERIOD

For those of us who are not selling multiple copies of the exact same item;i.e-listing has 'quantity available' field, ebay is just going to get worse and worse. If you can sell your unique items here or another forum, you are much better off. I am trying to move away from ebay, and if I could get my ebay price less seller fees I would sell everything here. But that's not happening and never has.

If you look at ebay's updates each time they do them - everything is geared toward their becoming a huge department store, as opposed to an antique/junk store as they originated. I see it as an opportunity for someone with enough resources to basically start an online perpetually-running antique auction house to replace the functions that Net54 folks and similar ilk require.
