You would care more, if this happened to you personally.

My point is, ebay has proof for this situation, they checked all messages between this seller and I. And still doesn't remove this false accusation.

Something they should start putting into their system.

I've sold items on ebay. And I would never falsely accuse someone in public like that.

I sold some tickets on EBAY. I promised one day delivery. For some reason USPS delivered tickets to my home instead of buyers. I happened to be out of town but my neighbor called the buyer for me and asked if he still wanted. Buyer said yes. Tickets were...

Ebay Buyer Protection Policy designed to protect Sellers!

Seller apparently sent the item I purchased, but I never received it. When I filed an Item Not Received complaint with Ebay, their customer service calls me a liar! I am a buyer in good standing for the past 7 years without a single negative review. Ebay has lost all credibility with me by humiliating me through their uncourteous customer service. The agent then went ahead to tell me that if I wanted my money back, I had to sign a document saying the package was lost on my doorstep when in fact that never happened to my knowledge. Why would they ask me to sign a false statement and then blackmail me by saying that if I do not sign the document, they will deny my appeal. Is this what Ebay has come to? I had great trust in Ebay, but today I realize that I am wrong and I will not make another purchase on Ebay in my life.

Amazon "protects" fraudulent buyers at the expense of sellers. Amazon is hypocritical and holds 3rd party sellers to stricter policies then it holds itself.

Also even if the buyers claim falls outside the huge window amazon gives them, they still refund the buyer and deduct the money from the seller. Horrible buisness.

Ebay rewards sellers at the expense of the buyers and Amazon rewards the buyers at expense of the sellers. Both will fall if they don't change.

I have both bought and sold on ebay. If I can't prove that the items was delivered through delivery confirmation that I have to refund the money.

It is my responsibility to get the item to the buyer, that is bays policy. I have heard at lot of seller, the type that are not profession, just selling things so they can by others, that have gotten ripped off. They ship an item, legitimate item, only to have the buyer swap it for a fake and tell ebay that the seller shipped them a fake. The money gets subtracted from there account.

You need to look at why ebay favored the seller (this is rare in my experience), did they have delivery confirmation. if they shipped via usps through ebay, then the delivery confirmation was free. Check the address you have on file with ebay, is it the correct one? I HATE ebay as much as the next, but as a seller it is appalling at the service and fees we get charged.

Ebay used to be fun, a bunch of people selling stuff they no longer needed to buy other stuff they really didn't need either. Now it is a bunch of cheap *&^% from cheap manufactures by people hoping to make a quick buck.

EBAY IS TOTALLY UNFAIR - they protect the Sellers and NOT the Buyers. If you buy damaged goods and send them back they keep count of how many items your returned.

They should be watching the Seller and giving them a hard time about how many damaged items they are selling.

Too many dishonest Sellers on EBAY - den of THIEVES. Not going to buy on Ebay anymore!!!

Ebay allows sellers to commit fraud

I purchased an item that was advertised on Ebay as a genuine Gateway laptop W6501 power adapter. The included in the auction was an exact picture of what I wanted to buy. What I received was a totally different product - a Thor brand with a much shorter cord. I called the seller and also filed a complaint with Ebay. I never received a return call from the seller but did receive an email from Ebay saying the seller will refund purchase plus what I paid for shipping but will not cover the cost of returning the item to the seller. So In other words a seller can commit fraud by advertising one thing and sending something else. Why should I pay to return an item I never would have ordered had I known it was a knockoff and not the original item as advertised. I sent an email to Ebay explaining this but I have not heard back from Ebay. If the sellers had to pay for return postage they would think twice about sending out junk.

Same issue except broken item.They told me buyer pays return shipping if seller does not accept returns.Only buy from sellers who accept returns.That is what ebay told me.

Ebay is rife with fraud and mis-representations. Best to buy things from reputable outfits like Amazon.com.

Buyer protection is just for advertising.They will take down bad feedback left for sellers if they complain.They lie and get it removed.I had a seller say I tried to extort money from her.The emails showed I did not!!Yet they removed the neutral feedback I left because she said I did.Perhaps *** foreign service rep.I don't know.

EBay From Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hide

EBAY WHEN FROM DR. JEKYLL TO MR. HIDE EVER SINCE IT INCORPORATED.. I REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS (1998) WHEN IT WAS FUN TO BUY AND SELL ON EBAY NOW YOU NEED TO WATCH YOUR BACK. THEIR CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS NOTHING BUT A FRAUD FOR A LACK OF A BETTER WORD. IF YOU NEED TO CALL THERE CUSTOMER SERVICE THEY ROUTE YOU TO THE PHILIPPINES AND THOSE *** USE A COIN (HEADS YOU WIN TAIL YOU LOOSE) TO MAKE DECISIONS. FOR EVERY FIVE OUT TEN ITEMS THAT YOU BUY IT TURNS IN TO NIGHTMARES. SO THE BEST THING TO DO IS NOT CONTACT THEM AND GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY AND PLACE A CHARGE BACK. IF YOU SELL AND YOU ARE A SMALL BUSINESS YOU NEED TO WATCH YOUR BACK OR THEY'LL BACK STAB YOU ONE WAY OR THE OTHER SOONER OR LATER. IF IT ISN'T EBAY MAKING YOUR LIFE MISERABLE IS PAYPAL. THE ONLY SELLERS THAT MAY NOT BE COMPLAINING TODAY WOULD BE THE CHINESE WHICH LIST 50% OF THE ITEMS AND EXPORT OUR DOLLARS A HANDFUL OF OTHER LARGE CORPORATIONS. IS REALLY A SHAME A CORPORATION CAN GET AWAY WITH SO MUCH INJUSTICE...

Pierre Omidyar and EBAY lied to me and messed up my account!

Pierre Omidyar and EBAY lied to me and messed up my account!
I was selling on EBAY. I had 100% perfect feedback. I had 10 Stars and was on my way to a successful selling account on EBAY. All my customers were very happy! Then I was suspended. I was linked to another account. I explained to EBAY numerous times that I had nothing to do with any other account! I wrote EBAY founder and chairman of the board Pierre Omidyar. I wrote him numerous times. He never responded. He was not professional enough or classy enough to respond or/and fix the situation. His Office eventually did contact me and asked me to fax a statement and that the situation would be corrected. I fax the requested information and Mailed it. My account is still suspended. I had NOTHING to do with any account, except mine. I have done everything EBAY asked. EBAY and Pierre Omidyar have lied and been completley unprofessional. My account should not be suspended. Pierre Omidyar and Ebay should do the right thing and restore my account!!

eBay doesn't care about you or your business. You can be a member for over 5 years and they wouldn't care.

They suspended me just because a buyer took advantage of their buyer guarantee program. We take the hit and the buyer keeps their money and their item.

Absolute rubbish. I had to hire Auction Essistance to help me go stealth and get back on.

NOT AN AUCTION SITE | Ebay review from Allentown, Pennsylvania

Ebay no longer is a great place to sell. This is not an auction site! No longer can you list an item for low amount and hope it receives numerous bids and you get a fair amount. Every buyer knows to wait last seconds and snipe to win at a cheap price. If it was TRULY an auction the bidding ends when people stop bidding. Not at a certain time! Yeah ebay says put a reserve on item or start at a higher price but then you receive no bids. People want to feel the excitement of bidding. WAKE UP EBAY. You need to makes changes.

Watching "storage Wars" and how a real auction works shows eBay is not an auction. It is fraudulent to advertise it as that.

eBay needs to look up the definition of an auction. Gunbroker.com does it correctly, once a bid is posted near the end, the auction's time increases.
