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.

    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
