ebay tips

i’ve bought over 10 items from ebay. just recently i almost did not receive the product i paid for. so i talked to a ebay agent at live chat. unbelivably the agent was very competent and gave me quite some valuable information.

give your seller a last chance
in my case, i did not receive my item 16 days after my payment. the agenet recommended me to give the seller a last chance before filing complaint. to get the seller’s phone number:

  1. Click on “Advanced Search” at the top of the eBay page, on the right side.
  2. Click on “Find Contact Information” on the left side.
  3. In the Contact Info section on that page type in your trading partners user id and the item number. Remember that once you ask for contact information, your transaction partner will also receive your contact information.

i did call my seller and she apologized and agreed to overnight my product plus an extra one for free 🙂

if that didn’t solve your problem, then you can file a complaint at ebay.

even better if you paid with paypal, since ebay owns paypal, you can file a complaint at paypal as well and really trash the seller’s reputation. don’t forget to leave a negative feedback too. you may also contact paypal by phone at 402-935-2050. their phone hours are: 4:00 AM PDT to 10:00 PM PDT 7 days a week.

  1. Hmm.. I have never tried buying stuff online although my sister had. The problem is with the payment and also I don’t really trust that. As you have said Dodo, the stuff which I have bought might not be here on time and it might cause some problems though… :upsidedown:

    1. well don’t order stuff you urgently need online. i always get awesome deals online tho. esp. that i live in the middle of nowhere. lots of stores are not available locally. online shopping is extremely beneficial for me.
