I have now had my first bad Ebay experience. After 2 years of successfully using the website for all kinds of purchases, from shoes to wall suction cups and everything else in between, something was bound to go wrong at some point.
I bid on the above Wheels and Dollbaby dress and another Topshop dress from the same seller. I won both auctions at a fairly good price and was pretty excited and happy that I’d be getting both just in time for my Birthday weekend (which is the next one, by the way). Well, this is what actually happened: I sent the payment, as I tend to always pay immediately and received a message soon after asking for the transaction to be cancelled, due to problems with the Paypal account. I did as requested and sent a note asking for an update when the problem was resolved. And I waited. A couple of days later I sent another message and waited again. Then I sent messages daily asking for an update. And nothing yet. It’s been 10 days and no contact from the seller. Mind you that this seller had 0 feedback so if bad feedback is left she has nothing to lose… So yeah, I left bad feedback on this seller and bought the same Wheels and Dollbaby dress from a different seller. Now all I can do is pray that it arrives before next weekend.
In the end of the day it wasn’t too bad, as I didn’t lose my money, it was just very disappointing, but a bad experience nonetheless.
Have you had any bad experiences on Ebay recently?
