New Ebay Seller To Avoid

Recommended Posts

i generally don't approve of these kinds of threads as there is two sides to every story and people just like to bash others, but this is pretty egregious and totally clear given these messages. You probably should not do business with seller epickering2012 who just started selling. Here is the correspondence.

------

Dear epickering2012,

Ebay is a binding contract. You can't cancel it because you didn't achieve

the price you wanted. Additionally, you have extremely unrealistic

expectations about prices. People have buy-it-nows on the item for $25-$30.

$15 is a reasonable auction price. Nobody will ever bid or even buy set

sale at $45. If you want to start an item low but not sell it for under a

certain price, you can set a reserve. You had another record up (Johnny

Durain) for a $75 minimum. If you look at the site popsike.com, it had sold

3 times and never even reached $75, much less had it as a starting price.

Right now the market is even lower because people don't have money to

spend. Either way, go ahead and cancel the auction, I will accept the

cancellation. Thank you and good luck with your future sales.

Dear ,

I put new selling prices in yesterday. These new prices are about 1/3 the

price I expect to sell them at. This was done to encourage bidding. Since

the new prices were only listed for one day, many people didn't even see

it. There-fore, there was very little bidding if any. The bids that I did

receive were at the new bid minimum which is much lower than the price I

expect to sell them at. I hope you understand my position. Thanks for your

interest anyway.

Dear ,

There was an error on the listing. I'm cancelling the transaction. Please

send me your response ASAP. Thanks.

what happened is exactly what's in the messages. I won it for his minimum bid of $15 (which is what I'd expect to be the ending bid in an auction of this item, you can buy it now for $20-$25). I randomly got his first message saying there was a "listing error", and then you can see the correspondence from there.

i thought so but that's so ridiculous i thought there must be more to it. can you still leave negative feedback if the seller cancels the transaction?

he won't sell many records if every time his auction finishes for less than he wants he cancels the transaction.

what kind of a way to sell records is that ?

he is just digging a hole for himself.

he didn't officially "cancel" the transaction, he just said "this transaction is cancelled" in the messages above. If he did cancel through ebay I could still leave feedback. This situation is worse because I might get a non paying bidder thing, etc. I reported his message directly to ebay. Fortunately he had not yet learned the "This item was cracked" line. The last 5 times people have done that I've asked for a photo of the crack and never gotten one.
