eBay question Vol: Flaking - Page 2

post #31 of 46
You can require whatever you want, if you do an auction though, you run the risk of bidders who either won't pay or will pay when they feel like paying.

Technically, ebay gives the buyers a few days to pay after they win the auction. You need to wait 4 days before opening the dispute.

Ideally you want a quick purchase but that's how it works with ebay.

Bin immediate payment required is the way to go on most items to weed out the undesirable buyers.

def leave him negative feedback

If your the seller you can't leave negative feedback which totally sucks.

To the other guys story where he won the shoes for a good deal and paid a few hours later and the seller gave him some dumb excuse. I hope you reported him to ebay.

I hate sellers like that. If you let an auction run its course, you risk taking a L. Don't want to take that risk, don't be so damn cheap and set a reserve. I sold a blank milwaukee bucks authentic a few weeks back for a penny plus shipping because only one person bid on it and I accidently had it end at a bad time. It sucked, but I held up my end of the bargain and honored the sale.

I'm always weary of buying sneakers on eBay. 9/10 you're dealing with a teenager. You know how that goes.

Any item that's popular with teenagers will bring out problematic sellers and buyers. I blame it on the maturity level and lack of accountability at that age. Not all teems and younger heads are but alot are until they learn how things work but with sneakers you get alot of sellers who won't honor a sale if the item sells for less then they would like or if their a buyer they'll bid on numerous of the same item and only pay for the one they won for the lowest amount.

I don't see an option for a Buy it Now with immediate payment. Maybe cause I don't qualify?
Quote:
Requirements to list with the immediate payment option

To use the immediate payment option in your listing, you must meet the following requirements:
Have an eBay seller account in good standing.
Have a PayPal Premier or PayPal Business account when you list your item. Find out more about upgrading your PayPal account.
Specify a Buy It Now price of no more than $10,000.
Specify shipping costs or offer free shipping when you list your item.
Include all other related costs, such as taxes, so your buyer knows exactly how much to pay.

I've had someone use BIN on one of my auctions, he won the auction and then messaged me asking if I could wait until next week when he got paid...mean.gif...And I clearly stated in the auction, payment is due withing 24hrs of auctions end if the buyer has 5 or less feedback ratings....

Anyways, I told him I could not wait and he cussed me out and left me my one and only negative feedback...mean.gif I messaged eBay and they won't remove it...And to top it off, I couldn't leave him negative feedback...mean.gif

I checked last week and now this buyer is unregistered with eBay, must have gotten suspended because I know I reported his *** so I'm sure others did too...

People bid a certain amount on multiple auctions for the same item and then buy whatever is the cheapest.

You gotta realize eBay only works if people care about their feedback. If not then there really is no consequence

You shouldn't have the BIN option without immediate payment required if you want to get paid immediately. That's on you.

 

In all other cases, unless there's a written rule stating that the buyer has to buy within said time frame, he can pay when he wants (within reason). Just the way it is.

 

Personally, I don't think I've ever waited longer than 3 days to pay for something I won.

I'm not really big on that people shouldn't spend money they don't have stuff. Minus whale not use credit cards for those who use them then.

If I see an item I want but will have the excess funds to cop in a reasonable timeframe, 1-3 days, ill bid, win and pay within that timeframe. Ill let the seller know the deal though. I'm not going to punish myself and miss out on an item when I intend on paying within a reasonable time frame.

I don't blame that dude for telling the buyer who wanted to pay a week later to kick rocks though because that's being unrealistic on the buyers part.

Like I said earlier. We all want quick payments as a seller, but you can't place demands outside of the timeframe to pay ebay has up.

Just do the buy it now immediate payment required route if you want to get paid right away.

As a seller, ill give them a few days if their feedback is decent and they take the initiative to contact me. Communication is always key either way though.

Did you lose money on this? With paypal fees and eBay fees, aren't you losing out? Or did you put shipping for higher than it actually cost you?

I usually put shipping at what it's going to cost me but I've been thinking of raising it by a few bucks where it's reasonable so I'll have little bit more left over

I lost money. I paid $8 each to buy a ton of blank nba authentics though so I didn't lose alot and I sold quite a few for a decent amount.
