    ebay is a pain these day , never know where something actually is coming from
    then when you check the tracking you can see it is from overseas.

    For the last 6 odd months now when i buy something i will send an email asking
    if it is in stock and on australian soil before i buy.

    Even then you get shafted so i leave negative feedback and then they will
    contact you with a pitiful amount to change your feedback which i never do.

    Ok more fun with seller selling FAKE rtl.
    i have asked for refund got told $5 then $10 then $15 and i stopped responding to his shit.
    i had not left any feed back yet so today i did.
    basically said - scammer seller selling fake items.
    seller responded at the speed of light asking me to change it for a full refund.
    i am on to this scammer so i said refund me FIRST then i will change it.
    no answer from scammer.
    what the scammer waned me to do was change it then NOT give me a refund.

    I have used e-Bay quite a lot for many years and have never had any problems.

    It pays to check the feedback of a seller in order to see if he/she has a good reputation prior to your purchase.

    I have rarely bought from first-time sellers and always use Paypal.

    I have had same small refund offers that was not worth it. I got instant responce by leaving bad feedback. All other replys would take 24+ hours feedback stood. They must have had a lot of suckers change their feed back or acecept the pitance offer as the feeed back was 98%

    Interestingly enough, I purchase 3 panel heaters from eBay, and two failed within a couple of months. Yes, a little bit af back and forth to demonstrate that they were not working. BUT I have two brand new heaters sitting at home waiting for my return. They did not even want the old one's back, so I'm certain I can find some use for the spare parts that they will create.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    I haven't had any real issues with ebay and we buy a fair amount. I bought a UPS last week and it arrived DOA, an ebay return was authorised and I dropped it off at the post office this afternoon, no cost to me.

    Many are based in China, but drop-ship into warehouses around Sydney then post from there. Generally no issue if the item is available and in the warehouse, but if you need a replacement or if the item is not available the delays can be lengthy.

    Nope, as a seller, call ebay, sook, show you did what you could and all negatives get removed.

    I dont have any negatives, im the perfect seller, and i tell all my smart arse customers where to go......

    If you think scammer sellers are a issue, come and become a seller, the scammer list grows 100 fold once you deal with buyers.

    Tonights a slow night, from 6pm ive only told off 3 complaining buyers who either cannot read, cannot comprehend whats written or think they can make up what they should have got which was not what the listing wrote.
