A Couple of eBay Bad Sellers Don’t Spoil the Whole Bunch…

I don't know that I buy a lot of stuff on eBay, but I certainly BID on lots of stuff on eBay.  I've had pretty good service in my 14 years of buying.. but this year I've had a couple of pretty bad sellers.

My first bad purchase was these super cute giraffe wedges.  I bought them to wear on youth Sunday.. because I had the perfect outfit to wear with it. (of course)  I paid 4.00 for the shoes and 10.00 for the shipping.  When the shoes arrived, they were in a manilla envelope and shipped first class mail.  The seller said the weight on the shoes were .5 ounces!  When really they were 2lbs. BUT to add insult to injury, they were a size 5, not a size 6.  I contacted the seller, and she told me she would accept the return, but was not happy about it.  She refunded part of my shipping that I paid.. but never paid for the return shipping. 🙁

I bought these ugly Sperry Top Siders for my sweet #3.  I had shoes identical to this in the 1980's when wearing boat shoes.. but not owning a boat was popular.  I guess now in 2012 that same idea is back in fashion. Apparently the giraffe shoe seller and this seller are related, because they did basically the same thing to me. The title and description said they were a size 6… but when we received them, they were an 8.5… AND they were shipped in a manilla envelope saying they weighed .6 ounces.  The post office said they weighed 2lbs and charged me the extra money to receive them.  I paid 8.00 for the shoes, 9.95 for shipping + 5.85 for the extra shipping I had to pay to the post office. I'm waiting on the seller to tell me what they want me to do with them now. 🙁

I purchased a Wii game from a seller 10 days before Christmas.  The game had free shipping, and the seller live around 380 miles from my home.  The item was shipped 3 days after I paid.. and shipped media mail!

There's a couple things wrong with this.. 1. it's a video game which should not be sent media mail. 2. it's a TOY near Christmas it should not be sent media mail!

You might notice that it is wrapped in a odd silver paper.  That's WRAPPING PAPER..

The game with the silver wrapping paper.

This is the game that was pictured with the auction.

This is what I received. Slightly different figures.


This game should have been wrapped in another box.. for protection.  It had breakable stuff in it. 🙁  The miracle in this is that I received it without anything broken, and that the USPS delivered a MEDIA mail (14-21 day delivery time item) in 4 days.


Will it change the way I buy stuff on eBay… nope.
