Ebay Is the Worst.
Selling on Ebay - Complaint
I decided to sell a pair of Air Jordan shoes that I bought about a year and a half ago. I spent a total of $119.00 on them including shipping. About a month ago I decided to sell them on eBay since I never got around to wearing them. I made the wrong decision.
Since the shoes weren't exactly available everywhere, I hoped to at least make a profit off of them. I didn't even break even. They charged me selling fees twice, because some idiot bought them but didn't pay. I sent him an invoice twice. Still didn't pay. Then I sent him a message stating that I planned on selling not reserving. He didn't pay. So I re-listed them. Some one bought them within an hour. He paid quick and I shipped them the next day. When I checked my Paypal account instead of the $150.00 I had $145.00 which I was ok with no big deal. Then two days after the buyers goods arrived I receive an email with an invoice for $27. I was not ok with that. eBay charged me selling fees ( $13.50 ) twice, even though the first guy never paid, they forced me to re-list my item and charged me even though he didn't pay a cent. So that's $32 dollars it cost to sell on Ebay, plus the $17 dollars for shipping which comes to $ 49 which means I made less on the shoes than I paid for them.
I will never use eBay to sell again, I might not even buy either. Ebay rapes its sellers everyday. I am not the only one, there are hundreds of complaints. Don't sell on eBay they WILL screw you eventually. If I need to sell something again I won't be using Ebay.
