I felt this was a open forum, but maybe its a Audiogon only forum....It could be my mistake.......I have made a few......Anytime I've had this kind of problem on Audiogon (getting a refund) I've had to go straight to pay-pal to get help......That's why I don't sell on Audiogon anymore.......They are less help than ebay, but they don't promise anything............Will
I recently had a similar issue with non-delivery on eBay (not an audio item). I emailed the seller multiple times over several days with no response. Then I went back to the ebay item details page. There was a button - get refund, or something like that. I clicked it, followed the instructions, and had my $ back in a few days.
My advice would be to open eBay's dispute procedures as soon as something goes wrong. If the item does eventually turn up and is OK , then you can apologise (profusely ?) to the seller. eBay keeps your payment in a form of escrow - if it has released payment to the seller it's a case of tough luck !!
I Swear EBay becomes scammers favorite place to scams people now
I think eBay is SOLD they’re no more the same
So recently I purchased something on eBay almost $1k tracking number shows that is delivered to my house but in reality nothing is delivered I contact USPS for more information after three days they emailed me with the scanning and pictures information of the item
the item supposed to weight 35 pounds but the actual item which supposedly delivered to my house is two pounds and it was delivered to some where in our neighborhood NOT on my address with all this info from USPS eBay’s will not close the case and refund so I contact my credit card company to report and got my money back
To me eBay becomes DANGEROUS PLACE to buy totally unacceptable (BEWARE BUYERS)
I had to giggle at p05129 for suggesting PayPal. Those thieves are as bad if not worse than Ebay. They are in it for them selves and the companies that pay them under the table. I have even had more than one company like MalwareBytes that told me in no uncertain terms that PayPal frequently rips off their customers and they can not get any resolution for them other than dealing with their customers off the books in the background.
I have 1,323 purchases over 20+ years from ebay. A few I "Did not receive the item". 12? total. Emailing the seller. I got credited for most of the items. A few I filed a "Dispute" with ebay after "no replies" from the seller. I had proof thru ebay's messaging that I made multiple attempts to contact the seller. I did have to wait a couple weeks after filing the Dispute. I got a refund from ebay.
All purchases were thru PayPal. I paid PayPay with my American Express Business Gold card. Problems? Ebay, then PayPal, last resort American Express.
I make purchases on ebay and I buy from vendors that have numerous sales at 100% satifaction. If you want to by supra cables ebay is about the only place I could find for buying them in the USA. The seller (Zenda) is legit. I have made close to 150 puchases on ebay and I had to return a used computer once, and the seller made good on it. I do agree that paypal sucks but in some cases I would not buy without it.
Well paypal got so bad I was using my credit card on ebay......Now I have two orders of 8 tubes each that didn't get here, I file a claim with e-bay and the claim says two tubes 61.00 but the order was two sets of 8 tubes, here goes another month of trying to get my money back.......The crooks win , the buyer loses .....Its the ebay way........W
