That happens alot with Lego aswell, people take out the mini figs and then say they we're missing. Ebay goes with the buyer and the seller is left with a worthless set as its the figures that people collect.

I will not sell on there no more. To many times I have had stuff sell and a couple weeks later told items broken and they want a refund, even though you have full photo proof, eBay always side on the buyer.
Lost way to much money, especially when you think, 30% of what you sell for will end up in eBay's pocket. Selling fees, final fee and then the PayPal fees.

I only buy on there now. But would rather sell on here or FB marketplace. Saying that, having payments on PayPal is not good as they also side on the buyer so you get shafted there too

To much stress and hassle with eBay and paypal

I was watching a set of 6 bushwhacker extension poles out of interest, was amazed when they went £142 plus delivery...they are only £60 new. Same person was selling the bushwhacker pole kit and that went for the same price as a new one yet you can get them new at the min!

It is definitely a strange place that's for sure.

I have seen listings up as a Buy it Now and not sell get re-listed as an auction and go for way in excess of the original Buy it Now price..... .....if you can hold your nerve and be prepared that an item might not go for as much as you wanted then a 99p start auction attracts idiots from miles around....

A good time to sell on Ebay at present....
Hopeless for buyers though.

I was taking interest in the price of Korda Krimping tools recently.... not that they were required, simply out of interest.
An item costing £15 brand new was being regularly sold at £60 (auction) for a used item when the shops had no stock.
As soon as shops had stock the price plummeted back to the £10 (used) they usually are sold for.

There sure are a lot of mugs in carp fishing with more money than sense.
I'm expecting a glut of used tackle at knockdown prices when the new anglers that just started during lockdown realise it's not for them or redundancies occur.

Iíve got a full Solar set up I bought around 1990.

The original adjustable buzz bars (think these were the first adjustable ever) , banksticks, satellite system, monkey climbers, stabilisers, stainless backrests.

Donít use any of it cos itís pretty crap by todayís standards. Maybe a good time to sell. Does have some sentimental value.

Looks like maybe the best thing is to message the buyer after purchase and check they are 100% happy, then at least if they reply you have a defence, but probably 95% wont.

That sounds almost definitely like a bit of Money laundering, things have gone on like that in the art world for a long time. Two or three people bid at auction for a piece of old tat that's worthless and the winning bidder is very well known to the seller. Its just an old scam that seems to be on ebay now.

It's a recent thing, buyers can cancel within the first hour as long as the item hasn't been marked shipped
Didn't know that, worth knowing. Thanks

After refunding the whole amount they still left negative feedback, I was down £40 for postage and then the cost of the item too

It's a recent thing, buyers can cancel within the first hour as long as the item hasn't been marked shipped. I'm refusing to use ebay now, too many people playing the game of saying its broken when it isn't and hoping you partially refund high value items or just let them keep it.

I've had two items returned that were absolutely fine, yet I'm out of pocket for the delivery and return postage and ebay don't care about sellers. It's a buyers world on there, except the prices are generally extortionate now.

Sold a roof rack and bars on there, buyer begged for postage which cost £20, then said one of the screws was threaded despite me having photos to prove it either wasn't the same one or they had damaged it themselves. Was going to cost me another £20 to get it back so I refunded them in full and said they can keep it and buy a replacement part for about £10. After refunding the whole amount they still left negative feedback, I was down £40 for postage and then the cost of the item too.

Didn't think buyers could cancel a transaction you have to ask the seller to do it on your behalf.
Happened to me when I sold something once and I got all my seller and Paypal fees back.

Was it the same phone sent back, I always note IMEI number as had a similar issue with a phone I sold to someone in Ireland. They soon shut up when I said return the phone but make sure itís this IMEI number! All of a sudden it was working fine.......

Our business has been trading on eBay for about 6 years now and this last couple of weeks weíve had a ridiculous amount of people buying then instantly cancelling the order after making payments. Something fishy going on and as a seller we still have to pick up fees via PayPal. Makes my pisk boil.

Sold an IPhone 7 recently and about 4 weeks after I had a message to say it was faulty and kept switching off. I initially refused the refund but eBay forced me into it. The buyer returned the phone and now it wonít charge. Filed a complaint with eBay and nothing. It is a shame a once great site has now become a place for scammmers and con artists with everything in the buyers favour.

Made what people will pay for stuff though.

Anyone noticed an increase in suspicious activity on eBay? I've sold the odd thing for years and never a problem.

But I've listed some rods and I've had to cancel three orders now due to suspicious buyers, paypal holding funds and classifying the transaction as 'high risk', storage container delivery addresses, foreign delivery addresses, buyers offering to pay over the odds etc. Maybe I've just been unlucky.

Thing with ebay is they don't always pay. I've sold a few things on there where the bidding goes silly high, some have paid but some haven't, and when you offer a second chance to the next bidder they never take it either

I was watching a guy on eBay selling stuff at ridiculous prices, the bids go mad, he sold a crapy Diawa bedchair for £185, I had the exact bedchair about 12 yrs ago and cost me £80 brand new
