Great episode! Thank you both. It is so great that you are both so like minded! I am an extreme saver and super frugal. My husband is the opposite and LOVES to buy stuff and spend money. Oh well, his good qualities make up for it.
Anyway, I wanted to mention that many listeners/followers should check out their local library online to see what free streaming resources are available with their library card… books, movies, music, homework help, online classes, language classes, geneology and MUCH more… including FREE ACCESS TO PAID SITES LIKE LEGAL ZOOM! You may be able to get free access to all of your legal document needs.
Be well everyone. Liz
This would be amazing if we privatize the USPS!
We can eliminate ANOTHER good paying union job and replace it with part-time employees with no health or other benefits at minimum wage! This would be an amazing corporate money grab! Then the middle class can pay $20 to mail a letter! Everyone wins!
Next we can erode public education and libraries even further!
American capitalism! Privatize the gains… Socialize the losses.
great… i guess. liz
I am just going to give him the refund requested and move on with my life. He did not prove any damage to the cards and apparently still wants them. I can’t imagine being this rude over anything, let alone some dumb Pokemon cards.
More importantly, should i NOT list them as New if they are old stock and sealed?
My listing CLEARLY states that you will receive a sealed pack.
Should i change my description to pre-owned?
ANOTHER message from this seller:
why would I waste all my time shipping them back right away when I don’t even know if you can provide me with a better set I totally wasted my time buying something brand-new that was totally not brand-new at all and now I have to go through all of this when I was supposed to receive the right thing the first time or I’ll take these cards the way they are but I would like to be reimbursed half the money back witch would be $17 . Due to all the confusion and not receiving what I was told I really don’t want to have to give you bad feedback but this is totally uncalled for . accident or not you got to make sure what you’re selling is what you are saying it is or you take the chance of dealing with a complaint due to bad business . So I respectfully ask for you to just reimburse me half the money back and I will give you good feedback due to understanding and making it right because right now I feel like it was a big waste of my time and money doing business with you
Or I will respectfully return item as is but I will be issuing a complaint as to why I am returning them for a refund then I’ll shop for these cards somewhere else . This is my last attempt to make things right with this purchase .
Ignore this right?
Amatino… awesome advice! Thank you!
I just messaged Ebay on facebook with a brief description of what is going on and all of the messages thus far. I do this as a hobby and I go out of my way to make sure buyers are happy. If I make a mistake, no problem… full refund, keep the item but for some reason THIS buyer is being particularly sh*tty. I think they just want me to send another pack for free and keep the first set and are refusing to start a return on the item.
At this point I am done communicating unless they begin a return transaction. Just return the item and get on with your life. Is that such a foreign concept? Thanks!
Thank you Indy for sharing your experience with me. I am a hobby seller with NO clout at all. Just have to see what happens.
Old Dad… i think you are correct about the partial refund. They haven’t bothered to open a refund request yet. I told them open it and I would send them the return postage slip immediately. They were clearly ON the computer all evening because they sent me 6 LENGTHY messages of how inconvenient it would be to send them back and how the cards and my trickery is ruining their life! lol
thanks all! please be safe and healthy. wishing you peace. liz
Thank you (as always) for your thoughtful response. You have answered many questions for me on this forum.
Stay well and have a peaceful day. Liz (Catmom)
JasonK… this is an interesting read – Secondhand: Travels in the New Global Garage Sale. The author makes the same points you mentioned. Especially how products are produced NOT to be repairable!
We had an expensive toaster break recently and I tried to take it apart to fix it but the cover was GLUED in a strategic place making the simple repair impossible. There was no reason the adhesive was used except to make it unrepairable.
Yes! We get hundreds of beautiful (and not so beautiful) cookbooks donated each week at the library where I work. We can’t give them away and they end up getting tossed. I will grab some here and there but how many can I take home? My house already looks like a library.
Jay, I am familiar with garbage finds. Amazing stuff! Seems he lives in a VERY old city… the stuff thrown away that he finds is incredible!
Antique frog… great use of old books. Glad they are being recycled!
“We see any item we keep out of the landfill as a win, instead of being dragged down by all the stuff we missed.”
Great point Jay. I was so upset by it this week. My husband told me the same thing… you can’t save everything, just do what you can.02/02/2020 at 8:15 am in reply to: Anybody familiar with the online Auction Site – LiveAuctioneers? #73573
Antique Frog… guess that means to steer clear! lol02/01/2020 at 9:16 am in reply to: Anybody familiar with the online Auction Site – LiveAuctioneers? #73546
Thank you so much for all of the info! Like I said, I was more than willing to pay full retail on this item. The seller was Jasper 52!12/31/2019 at 10:48 am in reply to: Could someone with a Worthpoint account check some prices for me please? #72302
Thank you so much Almasty! Happy New Year!
Thank you for all the great advice everyone! I spent last night and early this morning sorting and made 3 piles; shelter donation, ebay and Savers (community thrift).
I put together a box of super cute jewelry and have already dropped them off at the homeless shelter so they can be given out for the holidays. BTW… I always ask at estate sales for items that I can donate to local shelters for the children. There is one near me that always has about 70 kids housed at any given time. People with sell you stuff very cheap or give you items for this purpose.
I organized a large bin to sell on ebay and have already dropped off surplus at Savers.
I love the idea of variety lots! and by the pound too! great ideas. Thank you everyone!
