Do not use eBay, no customer service people answer the phones.do not use ebayI tried to call eBay yesterday, but they don't answer verbal calls anymore. I will not purchase again.

By the way the email notice I got yesterday said another car camcorder was delivered, but it was not in my box yesterday, as it stated it was delivered. I checked mailbox at 4:30pm it was empty until today, then I did get cam corder for car. But eBay needs phone service until 8 pm at night.

Poor nonverbal service, eBay has gone down hill I now give it a negative -1 rating. Very poor service, actually none,

Do not serve customer situations or concerns with the sense of urgency that demand.
stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating stars-rating

Well, it's kind of outrageous that the technology on eBay, or the process, is not up to the level of other companies that provide the same service. For instance, I ordered an item by mistake at 09:21 pm.

Immediately at 09:22 pm, I submitted the cancellation request and it's up to the seller, not eBay, to approve it. That needs to change; the seller is as much a customer as I am, the buyer. Now, if this Chinese seller does not respond, I'll be screwed in the whole sense of the word. Secondly, your customer service is non-existent; no one answers the phone.

You fool whoever calls by asking for the zip code to validate the number and immediately refer the client to eBay.com/help.

It's simply not good service. Other companies that provide the same service are way better in that regard.

Poor customer service eBay

Subject: Urgent Assistance Required for Return Process - Item 11-1169*-***87
Dear eBay Customer Service,
My name is Joe, and I need immediate assistance with returning an item (ID: 11-1169*-***87) purchased through eBay. I have encountered multiple issues attempting to initiate this return, both via your website and customer service hotline.

The website continuously loops without providing a solution, and the automated phone system redirects me back to the same unhelpful website.
The item I need to return was shipped from China, and the address provided by the seller is confusing and difficult to comprehend. I have attached an image of the address they provided. Additionally, the seller has stated that I must pay for the return shipping upfront and they will reimburse me later.

I do not trust this process and insist that eBay steps in to facilitate a smooth and reliable return process.
Please review the attached address and advise on the best course of action. I expect prompt and effective assistance, given that this purchase was made through your platform.
Contact Information:
El Paso, Texas 79905
Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
Joe Garcia

Absolutely useless. There is no ability to speak to someone in person, and I am still unable to get information about my delivery which should have been Friday 12th July 2024. Please let me know who I can speak to and resolve this issue.
