Al, you are not required by Ebay to accept Paypal for  payment, you just can't say that you are charging additional fees for payment that way, nor can you restrict payments from redit cards.  Those are the violations that are No-Nos according to Ebays rules.

I would like to see a thread on sellers who take forever to send items, to be honest. I bought a copy of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (1st edition, Hogshead reprint version) and The Restless Dead module for the game (total $7 + shipping; I thought it was a good deal) and its been nearly 5 weeks and I still have not received them. :( I don't even want to mention the copy of Mutazoids I've been waiting on for nearly 8 weeks... or the guy that took 11 months to ship out a copy of The Keep (Mayfair Role-Aids module.) I have bad luck...

The sellers I dislike are the ones who charge nearly as much for combined shipping as they do for not... or, only offer one form of shipping. That's crap. If I want my stuff media mailed, media mail it to me... its cheaper, and believe it or not, somewhat more reliable, if slower.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

wow! sometimes if i am snowed under with stuff to do i might take nearly a week - i will get everything together and just do one trip, normally a friday. doesnt happen much but it does sometimes.

is that bad?

i try and get stuff off sharpish most times (ala. Zhowars Ironhoof highlands package just the other day) but you know sometimes other things take precedence.

5 weeks tho is a bit much :D

Ah...the ebay experience.  You never know what you are going to get.  In you case you got horribly bad service.  Maybe you could post a link to these sellers so we know who to avoid.

Not all sellers have the advantage of living a couple minutes from the post office (like me) but some of these people hold on to your purchase for weeks before mailing.  At the same time they expect you to pay for the item ASAP.  There's just something fundamentally wrong with that thinking.

On a positive note there are plenty of good sellers on ebay and many of them are members of this forum.
