Anybody who spent their ebay bucks from last quarter get an email today from ebay telling you that you have until 5/2 to spend them?

I swore I spent them but yes, got a notification that I have until 5/2. Thought I just short circuited...

Yes I did, and I "added to cart" without committing to buy and it said that it was already used....

Please disregard our email about your Bucks Certificate

Yesterday we sent out an email that incorrectly reminded you to redeem your Bucks certificate. This was due to a technical issue, and we’re very sorry for any confusion this may have caused. Please disregard that email.

As always, thank you for continuing to be a loyal eBay Bucks member.

My auction ended today for a NextMen21 CGC9.8 for $330. And immediately I get this message

BEDA50FD-29E6-4C9F-9BCB-B2BA64CCA0ED.jpeg

My response was do whatever you want. And then 

 

AABEF4A0-E54E-4AF9-A42B-BE58B042780D.jpeg

I canceled the deal but damn I hate getting my time wasted.

Lame, lame, lame. The number of crumbs ducking out on their winning bids lately has been mushrooming. It used to be that everyone simply didn't pay and didn't respond and I would file a NPB. But lately everyone feels the need to contact me, offer up a tale and then ask me to cancel the order for them. Yesterday it was a buyer who won SIXTEEN auctions for over $150.00 and waited 5 days to tell me he simply can't pay for them. I counted on those funds and now I have to send out a dozen second chance offers? Which go unclaimed of course and then I have to relist them all. Yay.

Yup, had a non-payer on a 4-figure book recently. They stated they would, and did, give me positive feedback for my understanding... Gee thanks for extorting my silence politely....

Wanted to share this to shed some hope on eBay's siding with sellers. 

I handle my mom's account.  It's the least I can do for a few things she has done for me.  One of 'her' customers initiated a return with the reasoning of, "Just didn't like it" and "it's not my style.Mom called me and was upset because she would rather give her stuff away then deal with this.   I don't really understand that because I am the one that deals with it lol.  Either way... one simple call to eBay while I was doing some other things and eBay agreed that her reasoning was NOT a reason for a return given that the item listed stated no returns would be accepted.  eBay immediately closed it out in our favor.  To me, it is no loss of a customer as this 'customer' would just be in the habit of 'buying things' to just return them at whim.   Upon looking closer at the buyer's account it seems she has a little bit of history of buying things only to return them.  It is good to see eBay look at that aspect and say, "Enough."

eBay sided with the seller...  See folks... it happens.

I spent my $8.00 of ebay bucks on a VF/NM copy of The Boys 2.  Book came in an envelope curled in half and has dozens of spine ticks.  If I return it do they give my eBay bucks back or do I just lose them?

They return to your account and you can use again.

Ah, but you can have the best of both worlds. 

Let me know the next time you are starting a sales thread, and for the duration of that thread, once a day, I will send you a PM entitled "Tips for selling your items on the CGC Boards"!

New abusive buyer protections and reporting feature update

We're implementing stronger measures against buyers who don't follow eBay's abusive buyer policy. We're introducing new measures to proactively find abusive buyers, prevent them from filing return requests, and in some cases suspend them. When we find that a buyer violated the policy, we will remove any feedback and defects, including opened cases in service metrics.

We've also made it easier for you to report buyers who violate eBay policies. Now when you report a buyer, you can more clearly describe what the buyer is doing to help us investigate potential policy violations and take actions to protect you.

Ditto.

I'm not a big eBay seller, but I do buy a ton of things there, and anything that makes the atmosphere better as a whole is a big plus IMO.

I don’t know that I would get TOO excited about this. 

Because of the current situation I’m dealing with I took the time to read over a lot of the information and links that pertained to this new policy. 

One thing that stood out: when you file an Abusive Buyer complaint it’s up to eBay’s discretion what action they take. And it straight-up says their chosen action may be to do nothing. 

Call me a cynic but I have a feeling “do nothing” is going to be their SOP and pushing that button is going to be about the only satisfaction you’re going to get.
