  1. Someone else made a topic very similar to this one a few weeks back. There's some good info in that thread as well regarding the pros and cons.
  2. It's really nice to see this thread pick up a little bit of steam again!
  3. No They can Like if there is a delay in paying ect I think it's pretty common knowledge at this point, but to be clear and to provide accurate information... Buyers CANNOT receive negative feedback. If a buyer doesn't pay, the seller can file a non-paying bidder strike against them, but only eBay sees those. Supposedly, after three strikes in a year, the buyer is kicked off the platform. However, since there is no transparency, and since the buyers can easily appeal any strike, I don't think many people ever get reprimanded. With all that said, buyers can pretty much do whatever they want without any consequences.
  4. The OP also stated that he had issued the return shipping label before realizing that it was issued to the old address. At that point it was too late to issue a different label with his correct address.
  5. The OP stated that he had moved earlier this year and had an old address on file with eBay. It was this old address that was used as the return address. Given that the OP also stated that he had a forwarding address order that was valid for one year and expired in January, I'm going to make an assumption here that he had his old, incorrect address on file with eBay for around 9 months before this incident occurred.
  6. And here we go again... I made no assumption. In fact, if you're suggesting that I read into the context of your words, that's a form of "making an assumption". Your clarification is appreciated, as your story was NOT clear as you laid it out originally. Let's recap a few of your own words to illustrate why there may be confusion... Sorry if I didn't make the assumption that "RMA said that's fine" with regards to shipping the return to the original address. Afterall, you're not known for arguing with people, and after the buyer "Refused to work with you", just said "nope, nope, NOPE!!", and "Wouldn't listen to you"... I guess you just told him that it was cool to do it his way... Again, I'm glad you clarified the whole ordeal so that others won't make bad assumptions and get the wrong idea from your words. Only good assumptions are welcome in the thread. These arguments are indeed relevant and are born of... 1) Your initial inclusion of the incorrect return address into this very discussion. Again, if it was irrelevant, then you should never have brought it up in the first place. Since you did, it's a topic that is open to discussion. 2) Your refusal to acknowledge any wrongdoing on your own part for why you are in this situation in the first place. Your tone and attitude intimate considerable blame on the buyer, who, as others have pointed out, is simply trying to get a refund. You complain about his methods to receive his refund, but fail to recognize that it is his RIGHT to get a refund HIS way, not YOUR way. Your feedback rating... irrelevant. Your 30 day return policy.. irrelevant. Your response time to the case opened against you... irrelevant. The nationality of the eBay representatives you spoke with... irrelevant. The buyer being a flipper... irrelevant. The buyer having other avenues for a refund... irrelevant. He chose the method of refund HE wanted, so deal with it. Take some responsibility for your own actions here, as sympathy for your situation is waning.
  7. Hmmm... that's a new revelation that wasn't previously revealed. Where are you getting this information? You figuring something would happen with the forwarding order and you reaching out to the buyer saying it's fine are two completely different... you know what, nevermind... Good luck with everything. I hope it works out.
  8. Listen, I'm rooting for you to get this sorted out, along with any claim that should be owed to you through insurance. We can "argue" all night about this, but that's not why I'm here. I do believe that what eBay is doing here is criminal, but I also believe that making a few more phone calls to them will get this sorted out.
  9. It's not just about the Post Office and eBay. If the current address was provided at the onset, then there is a possibility that this problem never would have occurred. If this wasn't at least part of the issue, it should not have even been brought up in the discussion in the first place. Since it was brought up in the discussion, it is fair game to comment on it. Hmmm... that's a new revelation that wasn't previously revealed. Where are you getting this information?
  10. Again, putting yourself in the buyer's shoes... why should he give you a benefit of the doubt? Does he owe you something? Does he know you personally? What guarantee is he provided by giving up his guarantee to a refund through eBay? According to eBay, the PO Box you asked him to write in was a different address. According to eBay, the correct address is the address that is printed via their own return label. You may not like that, but that's the reality of the situation. As a buyer wanting a return, without knowing anything about the seller, would you honestly risk your refund for a seller that has already failed to properly deliver the package that was originally purchased? As @Mecha_Fantastic stated, what would you do if the buyer originally asked you to write in a new address as his shipping address? Are you willing to give the buyer the benefit of the doubt and void all of your already limited seller protections because they told you it needed to be shipped somewhere else?
  11. This is a separate issue and clearly we agree that you're getting screwed by eBay. This is quite simply ridiculous. It's clearly documented here that we've had our fair share of disagreements. With that said, I still find you to be a trustworthy person and someone that would hold up his end of a deal. This transaction on eBay is different, though. How does the buyer know you're not trying to cheat him in some way? Is it because you told him as much? (That's exactly what someone trying to cheat would say ). Put yourself in the buyer's shoes. They ordered a book, and through no fault of yours or of the buyer's, it arrived damaged. The buyer wants a refund, and to help ensure that this happens, it is in their best interest to follow eBay's return instructions. This means not writing in a different address at the request of the seller. I know if a seller asked me to do this, I would politely refuse. Heck, I may even think the seller is trying to scam me by requesting such a thing.
  12. I'm genuinely sorry this happened to you. I've had my fair share of issues with eBay returns and eBay doing everything they can to side with the buyer and deflect any blame or responsibility for using their platform. However, from a buyer perspective, their refusal to "write-in" your new PO Box is simply the buyer protecting their own interests, as any modification can technically void their ability to receive their refund.
  13. There's something about filling in these missing gaps that is just soooo satisfying, right?
  14. I'm gonna disagree with you slightly here for two reasons... 1) I sell a decent amount of raw Wolverine books. If I average it over the course of the year, it's about $100/week, with me being a part time seller. I have a hard time selling anything that's not the 1988 series, as that consists of about 90% of my sales. Run of the mill issues are sold for $1 each and I have a hard time keeping #157-179 in stock. I do sell a lot of "keys", as #75, 80, 88, 100, 145, 154, and 155 are always HOT sellers. 2) If you're looking to give them away, but can't find anyone, shoot me a PM and I'd be happy to take them off your hands. I think we still live close to each other too!
  15. Closing this down tonight. Books will be marked back up and moved to other venues by tomorrow.
