Anyone who really wants to laugh, check out this auction:



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 9&rd=1



The auction itself is not what is funny, but look at the seller/buyer question/answer at the bottom of the listing.  Looks like some kitty taming to me.  :lol:

Pretty funny! (didn't know kitty knew the 'magic word')



But why would anyone NOT allow bidders from overseas? As long as they paid for the shipping, I can't figure the exclusion. Is there some big ordeal about customs or something I am missing?


Scouts out!

Can understand why a seller with a generous refunds policy might not wish to consider selling overseas, or various other possible reasons.

Hey, Cav, this is one of those eBay questions that gets a fair amount of discussion, with people coming down on both sides of the issue. Here on The Acaeum, there's been some good discussions, including this one:



International sales



Personally, I've had some bad experiences with pushy international bidders; others on this site, though, have reported no problems at all. As always with anything related to eBay, YMMV.

If it were a T1st DMG, that'd be about right, but it isn't.  I've seen and owned worse.   :wink:

Ya I emailed the seller said good job in putting the pussy in his place...... I was talking to him about coming over and picking up the mods if I won because he lives pretty close, well thats if I won a few of his lots.  I knew the bastard was doing chargebacks on ppl after talking them into non-trackable shipping.(couger that is)



here was his reply.



Paula (my other half) has nicknamed him "eBay Nazi". He has all kinds of suggestions and "rules" on his auction, but he doesn't follow them himself. If he had half of a brain, he'd notice the only negative feedback I've EVER gotten is from him!! I left him positive and he ended up doing the chargeback on me. You aren't the first person that has told me he's done this. I wonder if we should report the jackass. We changed our eBay name b/c we are planning on starting a d20 company later this year to match. That's probably why he doesn't recognize me.



Also, if it had been another foreigner with an American address; I probably would have agreed to let him bid.



On my auctions, BIG HIGH & BID OFTEN!!! As I said, you can come by and get them. Hell, maybe we can go out for dinner or something.

Well, I can honestly say that I am now seriously concerned about my dealings with cougar. He has won a few of my auctions now for some basically crappy stuff, and to this point he has been relatively bearable, but this post has me seriously considering dealing with him in the any further. I consider myself a pretty fair person, that I try to give folks the benefit of the doubt, until they do me wrong then I will not deal with them any further, but in this circumstance I may have to make an exception. I can tell you one thing, if cougar screws me in any way, shape or form, I can honestly say he will REGRET IT, more than he can ever imagine. That pr*ck makes you jump through his stupid M-bag hoops, and then he does a charge back through Paypal :?: :!:



BTW, I have never actually had to ship M-bag, is there a way you can put tracking on it? Because if there is not I am definitely not selling to cougar any more. :wink:

Chargeback is when a seller pays with PayPal, and then asks PayPal to recover his money because he disagrees with what you've sold him. PayPal take the disputed paymnet from your account and hold it in ecrow until the dispute is resolved.



US customers who pay with credit cards can use their credit cards to take money back directly from your account. UK buyers do not have this ability because our law works differently.



PayPal offers Seller Protection against chargeback, and basicly it entails confirming the address your shipping to, or only shipping to buyers with confirmed addresses, and providing tracking and insurance. You can oblige buyers to pay for insurance and trackings (AKA Maxi-Pad's Great Quest).



I've had to recover money two or three times. The latest guy in the UK failed to ship recorded delivery and the package disappeared. Under PayPal rules I'm entitled to a full refund £51, and he's left to try to get his £28 from the post office.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

PayPal will return my money 'cos he didn't add tracking to the package. He's the one that ends up stiffed. So I'm happy. :D
