Check if it says that they have refunded them by going to your selling page,hover over the Ł sign & it should tell you if they have paid him back or just embargoed the payment.

If you contact ebay they will tell you how long you will have to wait.Customer service number is  0800 358 6551.
Ta mate. Just states I was paid on 24th April when I hover over the pound sign. Will give them a call tomorrow. Can see me waiting for ages on some automated hotline until I get through....

Looking for a bit of advice here guys. I recently sold a pair of used trainers on eBay about three weeks ago. The buyer agreed to buy them after some bartering over the price and then decided to ask me for a picture of the insoles before sending over the money. I sent a photo of the insoles and he then paid me. After he'd received the trainers he sent me a returns request saying they weren't as advertised and weren't in a condition he'd been expecting to receive them in. The listing had multiple clear and good quality photos of the trainers from which he could make an informed decision as to whether he wanted to buy them or not. They were advertised as used as well. I also stated no returns on the listing. eBay have now deducted the money I was owed from the trainers after I'd asked them to step in and resolve the matter. He's not sent them back and I haven't had any correspondence from the buyer for nearly two weeks now so I assume he's now decided he's happy with them. I've not heard anything from him to suggest he's returning the item so I'm basically waiting for eBay to reimburse me. The guy simply had buyer's remorse. Will eBay eventually release my money after a period of time if the buyer doesn't prove he's sent them back? At the moment the transaction is just on hold when I go onto my PayPal account.

I had this a few months ago, buyer wanted to return item as he hadn't read the description properly. I said I wouldn't accept, he started the returns process and the money was frozen in my payapl account. He never returned the item and eventually about 4 weeks later I got the money back into my account.

Desperately wanted a 17/18 home shirt before they all go. Left it too late. Can't find one anywhere in 'Large' - official store, usual sports outlets etc. All gone. Found these on ebay - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Liverpool-Jersey-LFC-Mo-Salah-11/173318786492?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=472029526684&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

At this price it's got 'fake' written all over it, but the pictures look good...

I clutch at straws, hope for the best and await delivery... (if it even turns up)  :-\

Chances are that the picture is of a real shirt,it is in Liverpool though so you could request a pick up.

Some of the fakes are almost as good as the real ones nowadays, so you might be alright.

What I meant was that if they were selling fakes they would use a real one in the picture.

eBay are a pain in the ass when it comes to things like this, they will side with the buyer even if he burns your house down and kills your cat. My advice would be to pester them constantly and get on the phone asap. They might still be open, I think they close at 8pm. Just go the the help and advice page, contact us then follow the instructions from there. Hope you get your money back.

I've just bought a phone off ebay and the description reads
Quote
"Excellent condition iPhone X 64gb. Bought new from the apple store just under one year ago. Selling due to upgrade. Comes complete with original box, charger and cable but not earphones.

The phone was always in a case and always has a screen cover on

I will leave the screen protector on."

However when I've received the phone, before even opening it there is a sticker on the parcel stating

Quote
Tested for Key Function/R2 ready for resale
Does this mean that its been refurbished at some point? From what I read online, this could constitute "Equipment that has passed hardware tests for key functions, but that has missing components, hardware issues of secondary functions, or repairable cosmetic damages".

So I need to ask the seller if its simply cosmetic damages or something has happened internally?

I don't mind buying refurbished stuff,that being said I would be pissed off if I were you & would send it back just because he lied.


Make sure that he agrees to pay for return postage as well.

Yeah I think i will. Its more that they haven't disclosed it rather than they have lied.

I bought a refurbished iphone 6 the other week and there was a gap between the bezel and the front cover so dust/moisture could have got in. I returned it straight away.

I just sold an appliance on Ebay and the c*nts are withholding the buyer's Paypal payment for 21 days because I'm not a regular seller basically. What a load of balls.

They will release it before so long as the buyer leaves + feedback.

Hope so, what I'm expecting given it's ebay is that the perfect item I sold will be reported as malfunctioning and they'll ask for a refund or something.

If it works and they got a bargain you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

I called and spoke to an Ebay customer service rep on the phone and she said she'd expedite it once feedback was left. Still a silly system mind.

Tried to use Paypal on Steam today, wouldn't accept my password. Turns out I had an email on Boxing Day that a new email account had been added to my Paypal account - 4 days later, my actual email account seems to have been removed from the Paypal account. Bank account seems okay, unless there's stuff pending I can't see yet.

Start trawling through emails to unlink Paypal from various websites and it appears Ebay is the source of the hack, as the associated paypal account name has been changed to the unknown email address on Ebay (and only on Ebay).

FYI. Never used it much anyway. Closed the Ebay account. I'll ring Paypal tomorrow but having dealt with them once before, not expecting much joy in getting back control of 'my' account.

What did ebay say when you told them ?
Not really told them anything. When closing, you select a reason and I picked 'Identity Theft Concern' and they give you the same platitudes every site gives, about password strength etc. Which is fine, if I trusted any IT department to actually secure data properly :). I've used ebay about 5 times in the last decade, so it's no great loss to me. Paypal is going to be annoying - and I'm more annoyed with them.
 
It's quite possible ebay wasn't compromised, and that they just have closer integration with Paypal via account number, and it automatically refreshed the 'new' email address. But I'm half expecting not to use Paypal any more, so removing all links to it anyway. And if ebay was a possible 'hole', it's not useful enough (to me) to keep.
