Re: Watch Out! Questionable Ebay Sellers!


Sarah, what were the items they didn't pay for? Will you relist them? Might be interested, will keep an eye on your account! emoticon

It's tough *hug*.

I'm at the stage where if something doesn't sell within a certain period of time, I'm okay at listing it at 99p. I'm valuing the space it consumes and the time it takes to sell the things more than the value of the item itself, as I'm sure my poor family are fed up of Sylvanians taking over the house! emoticon

I think on eBay a lot of people are buying for their children, so they won't buy a considered purchase like your rare figures, generally. Not to say there aren't collectors out there, but we're all feeling the pinch, especially with Christmas around the corner.

Absolutely sell for the price you'd like hun. Maybe you could contact Wendy and ask if you could sell your items on her website for a small fee?



That may be a good idea. For example, a few months back I listed by JP moles and people were sending me offers of 99p for them. I think the way I'm going to play it after Christmas is to just use the free listing days and keep sending stuff round until it sells. I've found that has worked for some items. I also wonder because I'm using my website photos people assume it is a stolen photo and not a photo of the actual item. I started to make this assumption when I listed my UK Flair Slydales. Mine were listed for £[sign in to see URL] but I saw several sets sell for well beyond this with not so good photos.

It's also come from looking at yours and Sophie's photos in comparison to mine. Both of your photos look like they show the actual item you are getting whereas mine could be perceived to have been stolen from a website.

Best of luck Hayley. Hope you manage to find a system that works for you. I get so many free listings a month with my eBay shop, so that could be something you could consider doing too.

I hope so. It's the only way I could ever sell high end stuff. Just to decide my price and stick with it and wait for the right collector to come along. I'm not brave enough to start some high end stuff at 99p, for example, Momoiro Rabbits or Urban Life figures.

Re: Watch Out! Questionable Ebay Sellers!


I try to stay away from selling on eBay as much as I can.

I had an item up for $250 big, $300 buy it now. Someone placed a bid, then retracted it on the last day - and eBay said that was ok even though I didn't agree to it! So eBay can authorize a retraction for me!? What the heck?!

I also had another buyer who got their item on time (well within the time allowance) but because my computer was down and I couldn't answer her question of "when will it be shipped?", she said I was "[sign in to see URL]." Stuff happens, even to sellers. You got your item, earlier than stated, actually. How was that slow? Needless to say: blocked.

I'm understanding, but I'm also not taking anyone's guff. I hate that sellers can't stick up for themselves anymore. Etsy even took that away. No more seller feedback.

The system is set up for seller failure now. It rewards unruly buyers who try to squeeze the sellers until they get something free.

I completely feel for you Hayley and Sarah. Just keep going at a smaller pace, maybe. And don't sell anything for a price you're not comfortable with! emoticon
