Ebay "name and shame" thread

Postby princechromey » May 26th, 2017, 16:35

We've all had issues with eBay in the past, let's face it.

Whether it's a seller who doesn't dispatch your item in a timely manner, a seller who doesn't give you the item that was described in the listing, a non paying bidder who wins your item (and then doesn't pay) or a buyer who desperately tries everything they can to get a free item, it's not right and it damages/hurts the reputation and atmosphere of buying and/or selling items on eBay.

Therefore, I've decided to put things right and make people aware of these people by making this "name and shame" style thread! If you have any issues with buyers or sellers giving you grief, here is the place to point the finger of blame!

Well, I've just had a not-so-nice person leave glowing feedback... and then ding my detailed star rating for communications!

All I did was message them saying "Many thanks for your order etc..." does that seriously warrant a communication ding?

I won't mention the buyer's name, but they are not welcome to buy any of my items ever again.

Okay, so we have our first victim of this list, and it goes to....

izzyinn

This person deserves a special mention. They purchased an item (Labtec PC Microphone) for 1p plus P&P. The total transaction came to £5.
(Yes, the postage cost was £4.99, but £5 including postage for a PC microphone that was fundamentally unused is very cheap - plus, the increased postage costs covered the packaging materials as well (packaging is not free, you know!) in addition to if the item was over-length for a Small Parcel, which thankfully, was not the case with this item.)

I received just £1.20 for this item after fees and P&P were taken out. The buyer in question decided in their wisdom, to leave a positive feedback with low DSR (Detailed Seller Rating) scores. £1.20 for my DSR stars to be significantly dinged is NOT acceptable!

edit: It turns out that this person left 3* for description, dispatch and postage. They only left 5* for communication because they had no choice (i.e. eBay automatically gave me 5* due to meeting the criteria for automatic 5* rating).

My stars are now 4.9, 4.9, 4.8 and 4.9 for item description, communications, dispatch time and P&P charges. They were 5.0, 4.9, 4.9 and 5.0 respectively. Plus I dispatched the item within my stated dispatch time of 1 day... I will be taking this up with eBay.

You are now BANNED from purchasing from me ever again. Now be gone and stay gone!

Wow, this one of the many reasons why I wouldn't/don't really sell on eBay anymore. Both sellers and buyers can get so greedy and selfish at times.

No, I don't - certainly when it comes to people trying to ruin my eBay reputation.

@S2M I know, some people really try and ruin things...

I remember toying with the idea of creating an eBay account a few years back, but decided it would be more trouble than its worth, and it seems that I was right. :(

Usually it's ok. However, sometimes some users always mess up things.
