IMMEDIATELY if not sooner.

 

If you have sent two messages without receiving a response (assuming these two messages were not sent 10 minutes ago), then time to get the ball rolling.

Opened a case or whatever... it says if the seller does not respond in 4 days I can have eBay step in.

I hope you get the page buzz. I always treated these situations on a case by case basis. If the item is easily obtainable I would have done as you did. Most likely after the same duration of time had passed, if not sooner due to the lack of response.

 

Yet on harder to find, or one of a kind items like OA I am more prone to let more time pass or disregard messages not being responded. With the hope of actually getting the item I really want, but I wouldn't have let it gone much longer than it already has. Sometimes sellers just don't value communication and timeliness but do wind up sending the item out at some point.

How come it is considered almost taboo to leave a negative for a seller? I ask as transactions occur in which comics are shipped to me with little to no protection, customer service is never provided, and comics arrive not as described. Shouldn't those warrant negative feedback to warn other buyers about the seller in question that provided that type of service? The entire eBay banned list seems to indicate that I shouldn't for fear of being banned. Kind of weird.

I do not view leaving negative feedback as taboo. It is all situational and in my opinion it is either deserving or it isn't. From my experience the majority of sellers do make an attempt to make things right. If they do not then that is when I would decide if negative feedback is to be left.

The other eBay milkshake thread should have a requirement about posting your eBay handle with your post

I've found that sellers having all the bad behavior you describe like this are a small minority. Many have one bad habit (ie. packing poorly, poor description, rudeness, etc.) but let's be honest - everyone is human.

 

I'll leave negative feedback only as a last resort. Generally its when a seller hasn't resolved things and forced a confrontation through ebay.

 

As far as banned list here, I would use your own experiences and put only the most egregious cases from here. One-sided rants about someone, no matter how clear they appear, always have another side to the story.

I truly do not understand eBay buyers. Why would someone buy a 9.2 X-Men #100 with OW/W pages for $239....when there are sellers (including myself) with copies as good or better (White pages) for less?

 

It's a head scratcher, to be sure.

Why would people complain that my price for a book at $250 including shipping was too high? Ask me repeatedly for a discount, I refuse because I feel that it is a fair price. Someone else lists the same book in grade at auction and it climbs past $300 without shipping included.

 

I reprice my book at $300, the same person emails me asking for the book at $250. I decline and a couple of days later the book sells at the new price of $300 shipped to someone else. I get a message again that I have basically ruined their childhood.

 

I do not think it is eBay. I think it is some people.

People who blame others for ruining their childhood should have their adulthood ruined as well

Agreed. Like anywhere, there are lots of folks buying and selling on eBay that either need to be on medication or just aren't taking it. Years ago before eBay hid all the ID's of auction bidders, I won an inexpensive auction for a common book (in the $15 range) with a last-minute snipe.

The underbidder contacted me and called me a bunch of names for "unfair bidding practices" lol

Made my first eBay sale yesterday. I shipped today and listed the tracking. I'm told the payment won't be made til the 17th. (From PayPal, not the buyer.) does it really take this long? I sold this for emergency $ and didn't realize it took so long. Wtf...

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
