Got one of these going if anyone is interested.  Could drop it off at the match too if that helps? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254414066057

Cheap!!

Quick question please.

Bought a camera on ebay, and bought the wrong model instead by accident. Completely my fault. Asked the seller if I could return and they said I could and gave me the address but not to open a return request.

Is there any reason why they've said that? If anything I would rather open a return request as it's all tracked on ebay? Just thought check before though.

Cheers

Definitely open a request,it won't go down as a bad mark on them as you will put your reason,just covers you &b make sure that you give him the tracking number through ebay messages.

Yes, open a return as if you don't, he has the camera and your money. Tell him you will open a return and choose 'change of mind' so it doesn't affect his seller rating.

Thought it was a bit dodgy. I'll do that. Cheers.

Was hoping to see if anyone had a similar experience or could help me, so I had an iPhone for sale on EBay which sold today at around 12, Iíve then got it ready & took it to the local Post Office at around 4:30, marked as shipped & provided tracking details not long after. I then get a message from the buyer an hour later asking can they cancel the order.
The problem is that I canít get the parcel back from the Post Office due to legal reasons as theyíve told me & the money that has been payed into my Paypal account is currently on hold.

Is there any chance that the buyer can cancel the payment & then will also receive the phone leaving me with nothing?

Knowing PayPal and eBay itís entirely possible. Still no idea why people risk using them with all the horror stories out there.

Just inform him itís been shipped so too late. Upload the tracking details and provide them to PayPal if this is possible and hope for the best.

Only used eBay the past month or two for selling a few pairs of shoes so wasnít really aware of some of the stories to be honest, anything that Iíve sold in the past there has been no problems.. just this one today.
Trying to contact eBay or Paypal seems to be a bollocks though!
Cheers for your help  :wave

Doubtful because you have provided the tracking number and it will be tracked all the way to their address & they will then have to provide a tracking number that does the same.

Just open a case with ebay explaining what has happened or better still come to an agreement with the buyer that you will accept the cancellation once it is returned without the package being opened.

You dropped a bollock sending it without making contact beforehand to be honest.

Asking for a cancellation usually isn't the worry. They have probably got buyers remorse and genuinely want to cancel. The easiest way to get scammed is if they claim the item wasn't as described and demand a refund and then send you something worthless that weighs the same back.

I had one of them had cctv of the postie delivering the parcel plus a video of me opening the parcel yet Paypal found in their favour.
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ĎLiverpoolí. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

Iíve contacted eBay though DM on Twitter & as long as the funds still show pending then they should clear a day after the buyer has received the phone.
The buyer though seems to not have the best English judging by their messages, but Iíve explained to them that Iíll refund them the cost of the item only as long as it hasnít been opened & is sent back to me 1st Class Royal Mail Tracked Delivery & a tracking number is provided.

What do you mean about making contact beforehand? Would it be best to contact the buyer to confirm that they want to purchase any item before sending it to them?
Just for future reference  :)

That's what I've always done for higher priced items,just a congratulatory message asking if they have any notes they want adding to the postage and saying that I will post once they reply.

Sold a Nintendo Switch (with a couple of faults) last week. Buyer came in late on and added an extra £10 to give a decent price.

Was very pleased with the sale, but no contact from the buyer. 24 hours later the twat messages me saying his son accessed his account and bought it and that he wouldn't be paying. :no

Nothing I can do but relist it. Very frustrating!

There are loads of scams beyond saying it didnít arrive. Sometimes theyíll have a broken one and will say it arrived broken and try to claim from PayPal / eBay (who almost always side with the buyer).

I assume you can still block the phone using the imei number so might be worth stating it can be blocked in description.

Put my phone up for auction with a reserve but I am getting more interest via FB marketplace.

I looked at ending the ebay sale early as I think I'll make more for it elsewhere but it warns me they'll charge an early ending fee which I didn't realise!

My own fault for not being aware of that. It's only had 2 low bids and has 2 days left.

Does anyone know if it's possible to avoid being stung - could I say the item got damaged and isn't fit for sale now or something?

Yeah you can say it's damaged or just no longer available but the fee is only a couple of quid isn't it,it's what they charge you for putting the reserve on it.
