Ebay issue - what would you do?


Recommended Posts

Ive just got 5 cds from a seller off ebay.. who described them as "in great condition". Far from great, id describe them as "poor" at best. All cd's are covered with surface marks and scratches looking like theyve never seen a cd case and have just sat face down on a table. I put one in and the first track jumped everywhere...

 

 

so what would you do?

Contact the seller and see if he'll take them back. If not, file a claim. Take pics of the CD's from the right angle, and you may be able to get all the scratches in the photo.

 

Also remember, opinions on quality can sometimes be subjective. There's plenty of "prefectionists" out there that can see the smallest flaw where the regular person could easily overlook it.

 

Personally, MINT is MINT to me just as NEW is NEW, but when you get into the Good/Very Good/Fair areas, that's where the opinions will differ most

My pleasure.

 

I'd also say that you should definitely take T-Bone's advice on this one.

Yeh i can see where the grey area for condition can be, however when someone describes this as "great" and these turn up looking like theyve sat on the floor for 15 years and been walked on and rubbed and scratched on everything.. i wouldnt call it great :).

I think the main issue is that at least one of the CDs skips, which essentially means you have been sold faulty goods.

Unless the auction stated the discs might skip, then I'd say you have a reasonable case.

 

Contact the guy first and see what he says, if he is a good trader, he should refund if you return them.

People get confused sometimes with the words Great when it should be good at best. Then you got the case where if the cd is played in a computor it doesnt skip and it does in a stereo. If the person gives you any slack at all just file a Paypal claim.

 

On the flipside I got a buyer today that bought a new sealed bottle of perfume(High end 100.00) and claims it was new and sealed but the perfume is not what it was suppose to be per color & smell. Having done 7000+ sales on ebay I can always pretty much tell by the wording of email if its legite or not. I suspect this is not. Anyway the point to be made is that no matter what I have to refund the money as this seller needs to do for you. He should also refund your shipping back even though he is not required to.

Thanks guys.

The seller got back to me. He is really confused as the cd's were in great condition when he sent them. Apparently on their journey to me they found a time machine and used it to get 15 years of excessive wear and tear. however he said i could send them back and ill get a refund -YEH RIGHT! that would mean id spend even more money sending them to him, and then id never hear from him again.

I got a CD through the post this morning that I won on eBay, and it was in lovely condition.

I have emailed the guy to see whether he will do anything.

At the very least, he will hopefully help me claim from post office!

I will say though, the disc itself didnt have any marks or scratches, so the marks on that scan are probably from the scanner plate that may need cleaning of finger prints!

Heres one of the 5 discs... i must say it was really hard taking the pic to show how bad it is! But hopefully this is enough evidence... the other discs are all similar...

if filing a paypal claim I would file 'non receipt', cos to claim 'not as described' is quite difficult I hear.

 

after-all it was 'non receipt'.

you purchased a bunch of cds in great condition. have you received these? No... therefore non-receipt.

eventhough you did recevie antoher package from that seller, there items are obviously from non-related to the transaction above as there are no cds that you ordered in that package....

:agree:

 

That's what I do whenever I receive something that's not what it's supposed to be or not in the condition it's described to be in.

"After careful review, we have determined that you are eligible for a refund. To qualify for this refund, please send the items whose claims were granted back to the seller in their original condition and keep your tracking information. You are responsible for postage and packing costs."

    • Probably the wisest thing said on this thread.  Realistically, we're all in this position. 
    • Yesterday-G'N'R
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of "Before The Sun Sets", the upcoming debut album from City Of Lights on February 11, 2022. City Of Lights is an exciting new melodic hard rock collaboration between British newcomer songwriter/guitarist Neil Austin and Greek vocal sensation Manos Fatsis (Odyssey Desperado, Hideaway). They deliver hard-edged melodic anthems driven by crunchy riffs and lush keyboard textures combined with soaring, passion-filled vocal melodies. Tracklist: 1. Racing On The Redline 2. Heart's On Fire 3. Emily 4. Heat Of The Night 5. Dying Light 6. Give Me Back My Heart 7. Put Your Heart On The Line 8. Snake Eyes 9. Joanna 10. Midnight Club 11. How To Love 12. Before The Sun Sets   LINE-UP: Manos Fatsis: Lead Vocals Neil Austin: Rhythm Guitar, Backing Choirs, Programming Robin Eriksson: Bass, Harmony Vocals Mats Eriksson: Drums Guest Musicians:  Guitar Solos: Nathan Doyle - Racing On The Redline, Heart's On Fire, Heat Of The Night, Dying Light, Midnight Club Daniel Johansson - Give Me Back My Heart, Snake Eyes, Before The Sun Sets Jonathan Carlemar - Snake Eyes, Joanna Mike Kyriakou (Kyre) - Emily Wahwah Guitar: Matt Farmer - Snake Eyes Keyboard Solo: Mikael Blanc - Before The Sun Sets Piano: Joel Selsfors - How To Love       
    • From MelodicRock Classics: MRC008 – HEADWAY (Featuring Steve McClintock) – Headway                                     1CD Limited Edition Unreleased pomp-AOR / melodic rock album from 1980 featuring vocalist and guitarist Steven McClintock. Includes original master tracks plus a couple of live bonus tracks recorded in 1981.    
    • To be honest, it doesn't really concern me if he did or didn't. I put it out there are a kind of olive branch (ie: not everything is completely imaginary and made up) Not many lives were well documented 2000 years ago. Likelihood is that he existed, and had some small amount of notoriety. Was killed and became a Randy Rhodes or Jeff Buckley. A lot more famous after death than when alive. The bibles changed over the years, his exploits became more impressive and eventually  became a demi god. Ironically I love easter and Jesus stories. They make great stories
    • That's really not proven. Opinions split. On the balance of it there is a fair chance he existed but it cannot be proven definitively he did.  His life isn't well documented outside of the bible.  It's long but this is a good video on the topic.     
    • I thank that may be partially due to his delivery style. He'll read part of a quote/sentence/article, make a pithy remark, lather rinse repeat. So it takes him a while to get through things and for the full point to come across. I think if he cut down his breaks by 50% it would be much more digestable. Still, as Lefties go, he's seemingly got more brain power and common sense than many...      
    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.    
    • Yeah mate, that's definitely them through and through. Maybe slightly "ballsier" in recent years, but if you dig that you'll dig their gear.
