    Only thing about that policy is that sellers get stiffed a lot. Some buyers abuse that system and ebay always sides with the buyer. Up to 6 months now, a buyer can cry foul.

    If I sell a mint vintage Omega watch in working order for a thousand dollars I'm always scared to death the buyer is gonna say it doesn't work. Then they get a refund back and return an empty box.

    It happens. You're essentially at the mercy of the honesty of the buyer.

    Nope. Bought some Funko Pops that I thought were a good deal, found out there were from China and 60 days later when they finally arrived, they were not only damaged, but fake. I had bought like 4 of them before I had gotten the first one, and ended up having to put in a ticket for ALL of them, and was given my money back from eBay. I had to sign a paper that I destroyed them because they were fake and a copyright infringement product, and email the form back.

    Did you read their seller feedback first? But most times everything is fake from there.

    I have bought computers on Ebay, laptop, and tons of little things..

    You have to really know what you are selling because people can take advantage of you..I tried selling dolls and got ripped off could have gotten so much more.

    Nope. It only happened to me once. Worst part is that ebay won't allow sellers to leave negative feedback on buyers.

    Yeah but here is the thing. The sellers in China get banned all the time for selling fake and cheap stuff, so they just open new accounts. And they will get feedback real quick because they will have people bump them up by making bogus purchases. Best thing is to just not buy anything from China unless it is some cheap electronic part you don't care will break in a month or two. I bought a computer fan for like $1, which included shipping... I have no idea how that is even possible, but it is. If it breaks in a few months, I'll just buy another one.

    I know we're straying off topic here, but do you know what the best gig is on ebay? Selling used, worn, unwashed panties to dirty old men. The longer they've been worn, the more profit they fetch. Even more of a profit if pics wearing them are included in the listing. So, ladies, there you go. There's money in them drawers with ebay and paypal.

    Eeeeyew. Haha.

    Okay, sorry, bye.

    OP, good luck with your upgrade.

    But the thing on that is, if you paid for shipping insurance couldn't you have turned that in?
