eBay Buyers with out common sense or simple logic.

As the guy I sold some parts to wants to know what I am gonna do for him after HE scratched HIS paint, installing the parts I sold him.

And with the eBay system now set up the way it is, buyer can hold you for ransom if you don't fulfill their unreasonable wishes.

Not necessarily true. If he gives you a bad rating you can dispute it with ebay. I have done it. I have a perfect 100% rating. The new system does suck but it really has helped alot of people from getting screwed over by sellers. There are good and bad things about it.. Sucks that your getting the bad end of the deal though :(

You got lucky then as only if they break the rules on feedback will they remove it.

Anyone can easily say, I don't like it, looks like junk, true or not and ebay don't care.

they have to be rude or post somthing you can prove is false.

I agree, selling on Ebay sucks big time.
I've had guys leave negative feedback, without warning simply because THEY ORDERED the incorrect part. And NO, Ebay won't work with you on it.

The only way I can figure a way out is to see if we can do a refund if they accept a cancel transaction request through ebay first.
Then haggle it out through paypal as I’m not eating the shipping cost both ways.

Which is the only way I can think of, to flip the table back on them with their extortion tactics to get something for nothing.

One of the reasons why I quit selling anything on Ebay. Ebay has become too buyer orientated and piss on the sellers. I quit selling when Ebay stopped letting sellers do anything about non-paying buyers and stopped investigating buyer fraud.

Contact Ebay immediately and tell them of his extortion. Keep copies of all e-mails and even ask the buyer for pics. Also contact Paypal in case the tries to request a refund.

I'm sorry but ebay is just HORRIBLE for sellers now. It is just down right BS. I have been screwed over 4 times in the past 6 months from deadbeat losers. I had some BUY IT NOW auctions. People would buy it now, then just refuse to pay you. Some would even just leave - feedback for no reason whatsoever and the seller can't leave a - for the buyer? That is just horse shit! I hardly use ebay anymore because I'm sick of their bullshit. They don't even try to help the seller, their service is horrendous and they don't do f all to help you out. I just buy from them the odd time. But yes sellers are straight screwed now it seems. They always take the buyers side

I'd like to know how you did it. I stayed on the phone with the morons at Ebay for over an hour and they wouldn't budge. I had a negative for nothing, guy just left it being a prick. That was over a year ago, maybe they have changed their "policies".
