Products to Buy or Sell

Selling old 2nd hand stuff on eBay can be annoying largly because you will be drawn in and obliged to answer mind-numbingly stupid questions, for instance, you may have an old cell phone to sell, a fairly typical item, you will post one or two pictures and try to describe the phone as best you can, detailing scuffs and any known deffects ending with, sold as seen for spares with no battery or charger, untested.

Sadly soon after the sale begins you are likely to get questions about the phone,  like this one :-  Hi just wondering does the phone hold a charge ok?  or :- Hi is the phone signal working?  and :- Hello I have the same phone, do you want to buy the battery and charger from me?

It’s so easy to ignore these dumb questions, you want to ignore them and that’s very tempting, but if you do eBay will mark your rating down under poor Communication, in other words you have to spend your time to respond.

Here are just ten (10) from thousands of messages sent to us at 1stPro from eBay members to give you a taste of what dealing on eBay will be like in reality.

Please note :-

eBay will stop you from trading if too many people complain about you, that’s all well and good for the buyer – keeps them safe but please note! you only need a handful of unhappy buyers or malitious buyers to destroy all your good P/Relations work and possibly stop you from trading altogether.
Sadly you will always get the odd sad individual who will pleasure themselves by hurting you, and eBay it seems will always take the side of the buyer and penalise you the seller.
One of eBay’s favorite seller penalty they like to regularly dish out if a buyer is unhappy, and complains bought His or Her purchase, is to refund all the money back to the buyer including all postage and packing costs, and then eBay will leave it up to the buyer to send you back the item they complained about, so you loose the lot your time and effort photographing the item describing and posting it for sale, your diligence answering all the stupid questions about the item, your time packing the item and taking to the post office, queue up, pay for the post, packing, all the costs involved – you loose the lot including the item, because the buyer already has the money back returned to them by eBay, meaning there is no reason for them to ever send your unpaid item back to you, so guess what, you may not never get your item back.
All a buyer has to do on eBay to get a full refund and keep the item it seems, is to simply complain and say : item was not as described  or say :  item was not working properly.
