• Speak to eBay. He is covering his buyers remorse by trying to bully you.

    And B, but make a note in your calendar with all his deets to do it in 5 years time so he will have no idea why it happens to really mess with his head.

  • Wtf is this new bank link sh*t? I have to log into my online banking via eBay???

  • Not exactly but almost as shit. You have to give them account details which they will use for depositing payments into. Usually between 3 and 5 days after you’ve made a sale. And minus a very large percentage of the value for their trouble!

  • I've just put some old bikes for sale on ebay. What an utter ballache that was. Everything has changed for the worse since I last listed anything and it is overly complicated.
    The "Or best offer" default addition that I didn't notice straight away irritated me. I had to revise every listing to remove it.
    I'm done with ebay sales.
    Is Gumtree the alternative? Or is there a better option as I do prefer an auction with a fair starting price and like to watch where it goes from there.

  • Bear in mind that ebay will email you now and then and let you know that ‘your listing can now accept offers’! So you have to edit the ads again each time.
    Ebay has indeed become a ballache. I’ve personally had zero luck trying to sell on gumtree or facebook. It’s a real shame but I think for most folk now, ebay is the defacto option for buying anything. I’ve even had stuff bid higher on ebay than it can be bought for brand new on amazon!? which tells me people just don’t look anywhere else any more….

  • ‘your listing can now accept offers’


  • I've put something on eBay that I couldn't sell on here, and had an offer for it which I accepted with the information the app showed me. Getting home I checked the full website and the user who bought it has 0 feedback and one of those generic dodgy usernames. I can just feel in my bones that I'm going to get fucked around on this and the item will mysteriously 'not arrive" or some shite, and I'll lose out.

    How do I get out of this without too much of a mark on my account? Claim to send it (but don't), then issue a refund and relist later?

    Edit: well it looks like I can just send a full refund and say the item has been unfortunately damaged prior to shipping

  • eBay now so shit they're apologising for it.
