Imagine getting a letter like this.
Well thanks for the feedback
If you're an Ebay seller that does this, you're a cheat and a con artist!
Being extorted by a child (read bottom to top)
Gee golly, I hope not.
I had to cancel an order because the virus means I can’t ship internationally normally. The buyer sent me this.
Reading comprehension score: 1/10 (details in comments)
Finally hit 1,000 today - with absolutely no negatives!
You never know who your rep will be when yo call eBay!
If you’re a buyer, please dont leave feedback like this.... lol
Now that’s a new one. Ebay is finally the one to lose out on money
Pretty candid about why he paid late...
Oh sure, I'll get on the phone with German customs right away and nicely ask them not to charge you import fees
A prospective buyer stopped replying to me several weeks ago. I think this is a valid enough explanation.
Please don't do that
The last 60 days have been insane for me!
What do these clowns think they are achieving with messages like these? If you don’t buy it, somebody else will.
Messages like this make me happy. It's nice every once in a while to get a break from the regular Ebay insanity.
My experience as an inexperienced seller on eBay for the past month
Ebay is finally starting to look up for me! Just sold 13 things in the last 48 hours!
UPDATE: Buyer tampers with item, returns it with missing pieces, and leaves negative before I even had a chance to make it right. This story has a happy ending
Thanks, /r/eBay! I decided to sell my stuff around the house and you all have been so helpful and informative. I started 2 weeks ago and it's been AMAZING!
What a funny guy. But my hair did stand on end when I started to read this. then I laughed out loud. I love customers like this.
Impressed by Ebay and thankful for you guys.
When it comes to the end of an Ebay seller's life:
These people are the worst.
Finished my masterpiece today (read from the bottom up)
Made an envelope for my postal carrier's gift. I love having a thermal printer =)
eBay suspended my buyer for opening too many INR cases
Seems like this person is trying to scam me on an item that was delivered, not sure how to resolve it.
pls pls pls don't contact the eBay
Gotta Love It
Saw a card listed, but no picture. This was the response I got. Lol
Shipped a big expensive item, my heart dropped when I got a long message from buyer.
Sometimes all you need is a small message to brighten up your day
Today I received a video game I purchased and in the game I bought was another game the seller put in as a surprise and I just want to share what I wrote him to show how impactful a small act of kindness just might mean someone are selling to that you don’t even know .
Does anyone else hoard boxes and recycle shipping supplies
Positive Post: Buyers like this give me hope :)
This guy wants a refund because “it got shipped to an address he doesn’t live at anymore” when it’s the address that was given to me.
My petty revenge
I Was getting annoyed because I wasn’t making any profit on eBay but than this happened in the past 2 weeks
I know this is pocket change to many sellers on this sub, but I am a casual seller and this is the first time I've ever hit the $1k mark in 60 day sales. I'm stoked!
I told an international buyer I could not mark their package as a gift and they were annoyed. But then they bought it anyway and put in the buyers notes to mark it as a gift...when I reiterated to them that I cannot do that they wanted me to cancel so I sent them this:
This escalated quickly
$3 off a purchase of $3.01 by texting EXTRA to 70799.
Had a buyer (blue) claim that the jacket I (green) sold them was not the correct size. To support their case, they measured the item and took photos. The measurements supported the fact that the jacket was the exact size it should have been. eBay actually took my side for once.
ebay buyer doesn't understand how the postal service works
Paypal takes 3% of the total AFTER taxes?
Now that's some positive feedback!
My day got better!
Found this story I wrote when I was 8, quality stuff right there.
Does Anyone Else Make Their Own Boxes to Save on Shipping, or Am I Alone On This One?
It really do be like this
Seller cancelled my bid shortly before auction ended. Glad I know why now.
First time, in 7 years of selling replacement electronic parts, I have gotten a customer that does not think they know more than someone that repairs TV's for living. Bonus points to this guy!
My new record high. Keep it going guys, august has been so good!!
Is this one of you guys?
The most heartwarming feedback I've ever received
A Seller selling Lego for way below its average asking price is asking if I work for Ebay. 🚩🚩
Yay another surprise from ebay and paypal!!
Please cancel, this was ordered while my phone was in my pocket.
I sold a £700 item, and my heart skipped a beat when I saw the buyer sent me a message. May we all have kind buyers like this!
Yes your majesty, thanks for taking 2 days to pay then immediately demanding me to ship asap, I love it
I wish eBay would do something about misleading prices. Clicked and there were several options. This bike wasn't even one of them.
This is so cute
I have a better idea; why don’t you buy my item and sell yours since yours is easier to sell?
Pretty sure buyer cut holes in my item and said they were there to force a return since I don’t return for fit. Any recourse?
So selling flaming hot cheetos shaped as guns is a thing...
Excuse me? You literally ordered this approximately 45 seconds ago....
When I haven't sold anything in two days but I have 20+ people watching my items.
For being a broke college student, I’m pretty proud of this milestone!
I’m new to selling on eBay, and this reaction was over a $14 comic book. Good to know there are people with real problems in this world.
Not even a full 60 days in but I want to thank this sub for helping me get motivated to get out here and make some money of my own! My best selling item category is retro video games. What about you guys and gals? /image
My worst buyer story :/
Best feedback i’ve ever received!
Someone is a little mad I wouldn’t give something away for free
Jumping on the train - this is all from downsizing- letting go of items I thought I’d sell “someday”. Now’s the time as I’m saving for a house. This helps!
Should I sell sealed items on eBay? I'm concerned about it being opened, emptied, and returned.
Uh ... Why'd you wait so long???
Riding the sales wave with a new record. Thanks to info and advice from you guys!
Can we talk a bit about the changes eBay like to sneak into our listings when we are on mobile?
When you mess up selling your first items.
Not sure how I feel about this. 😂😂
This eBay seller responding to negative feeback with insults...
Handling Please ship to my other address. Note that they did accept the cancel at buyer request and it did auto-relist for free and they did make the follow-up purchase with the correct address.
No reasons provided at all. I cannot even contact my buyers.
My EBay Station
This was a fun feedback to get. Still scratching my head on what info I did not include in the title that would have been clearer.
Bad feedback because buyer stupidity. Saw this when looking at a sellers feedback and just thought what a moron
Thanks USPS.....BTW, I'm in Colorado.
I live in the United States and this store is located in KY yet doesn’t accept my currency?
Beware: Christmas is coming
My sales dropped lately then I get an email/message/this banner from eBay suggesting I do free delivery to increase my sales. Can't help to think the slow sales are intentional to push seller in doing free delivery
Found the loophole to use old alcohol boxes for my shipments, just had to get creative.
Even though it’s a hassle dealing with USPS, bad buyers and lost packages sometimes it’s all worth it
How is a buyer like this NOT banned?
Interesting, very interesting
Seriously? I literally accepted his offer no more than 5 minutes after he sent it and I get this message a half an hour later. 🙄🙄
Seller didn’t send half my order. Sent me a fake tracking number, after 2 weeks of back and forth promises of “3 more days” till my missing items arrive. I open return, sends another tracking number and then this message. I know it’s another lie but dang.
I usually don't mind offers, but this is getting ridiculous. (Read from the bottom up for the full saga)
Come on people
These 2 are the same listing. The sponsored one does not show true price range. eBay wants people to click on sponsored links so they get an extra 5% of the total. (obviously they want more money, but it's very disingenuous/manipulative)
The eBay gods have smiled down upon us this day!
Anyone else noticed eBay is particularly glitchy recently?
Buyer tells me to adjust the price because he paid taxes to ebay and thinks it goes to me. Nocando'sville
What in the world is this person trying to tell me!? They put a lowball offer in and then send this.
Proud moment: been selling for about 6 years, just hit 100k in sales
Well.. this is a first. Had this returned to me. Sold a couple small items to a buyer and apparently they passed away.... There's also Postage Due. Never have a deceased RTS.
Seller is claiming brakes haven't been delivered, however, he has just advertised them on Facebook.
When they get you with that 200$ chargeback yet again.
Another Tempting Best Offer
Would this break eBay's ToS? Just curious
I just got this email from Paypal.
Buyer paid for the item on Feb 3rd. Today is Feb 4th. I don’t even know what these people expect lmao
Small time flipper, finally grossed over 1k.
The eBay CS agent I spoke to tonight told me his name was “Leonard”.....
Of all the reasons I could get negative feedback - Don't most people want to know the actual waist size of their jeans/shorts before buying them? Listed as a 29 inch waist, size 4. Lmao.
When and why has eBay start doing this?
Surely this can’t be allowed? Which subcategory can I use to report?
Bought a pen. Oops.
I asked him not to resell it and his response is golden. Buyer messaged me, I replied saying I’m glad it’s going in his collection, then his response followed. I think it’s in good hands!
As a casual seller the past three years, with no store, selling from my own closet to help a bit with the bills, this is the highest 60 day total I’ve ever reached and it feels pretty awesome.
This insane (and hilarious) buyer harassing me after I left them feedback for being a deadbeat and never paying
When your buyer hangs themselves...
These people are the best
Ebay is starting to get a bit too anxious with their all reminder emails and messages
Seller canceled my order without contacting me and I left negative feedback. They want me to change it.
Stupid Feedback eBay won't remove
Can he password my laptop? Is this blackmail or something?
Works for eBay too
Warning to anyone buying Samsung SD cards off of eBay. They are made in Korea, so always check the back of the card (real on the left, fake on the right)
Only on eBay. Buyer super TMI message
I’m trying to list something for the first time and I can’t. Why is this?
I received this message from a person in Ukraine, has anyone received anything like This? (I blocked names bc I don't know what the rules are)
Genius son looks up car parts and submits reasonable offer to prank dad
eBay search results at their finest tonight....
$5 off $10+ on eBay with code FLASHFIVE (Seems to only be working for some people, so it’s probably YMMV)
Sold a $70 dollar authentic HTF Victoria secret perfume but 19 days after delivery buyer says I shipped a pillow case and wants to return? I only carry fragrance and stuff so a pillowcase threw me off real bad. I asked her if she can send me a picture of the package if she has it. She sent me this
I received an automatically initiated refund adjustment because the package weighed less than I said it did. That hasn't happened to me, ever. I didn't even know such a thing was possible.
Tomorrow 11/21 Ebay is running a 15% off discount code. 5AM till 5PM Pacific Standard Time.
From r/funny... I bought a lens for my camera and the seller forgot to send the hood out with it... I got it a few days later with a note and a present. 5 star feedback! Thanks for my crisps!
Buyer leaves almost all negative feedback! She has been doing this for years!
