Default WTF happened to ebay?!!!!

In the past few weeks I have had 4 items sell on ebay. I am selling the stuff to make room in the garage and get money for Christmas. All 4 seperate winning bidders are all no pays!! They have one auctions and just used the by it now feature and still no pay!! WTF?! Am I doing something wrong?! I have to wait til all the cases are closed in order to re-sell them and none of them responded to anything!! It's not like 50.00 or anything, the items sold are around 1,000.00!! I have an excellent record with ebay and have had no issues until now with buyers. Ebay has really let some shit join the site.

i had the same thing happen to some rc car parts i had listed. a guy asked what my reserve was, he met it, another guy outbid him by $3. then no payment, no contact. sent him several invoices, got ebay involved. nothing. did get reimbursed my fees. finally had someone buy it and pay for it.

i have bought some things off of ebay that were bogus too, people say like new, and i get it and the plastic parts are all busted and faded, metal is rusted out...

when i brought it up to them they didnt respond so filed a complaint to ebay and then the guy flipped out on me and started calling me a liar and a fake and thief, ebay just sided with them, i was pissed, and the part was like 75 bucks and its not worth talking to a lawyer over...

I just dont get it. I thought the site had decent people that came on for better deals. All of them had alot of positive feedback and not one bad mark, then this?! What the hell happened to peoples integrity these days? It's not like they could even say...Oops, I clicked the wrong button. There are 2 steps go through to confirm the purchase and they still dicked me over!

Yeah I had that happen, I left negative feedback and I emailed my phone number to them and said if they have any issues or anything to say they can man up and call me. Didn't hear a word

yeah its pretty bogus and then when i took pictures and sent them to ebay of the actual product versus the description of the one they posted they said they would get back to me, took them forever to just say they sided with the seller.

i was livid for a long time, especially after the way the seller treated me. like strait up insulting me and calling me names, i shoulda talked to a lawyer just to press slander charges or something hahaha

I lost faith in people 17 years ago when I started my job. I just thought on ebay, like here the applied rules are followed or you're out.

I feel your pain. I stopped selling a couple years ago when the fees were "reduced" only problem is that the "reduced" fees are more than 2x what the old fees were once you read the fine print.
Don't even get me started on how to figure the fees.

One tip I'll give on the deadbeats is to list everything as BIN & put the "Instant Payment Required" option on all your listings.
You lose out on the guys bidding at the last minute, but you know how much you'll get & they have to pay for the listing to end.

I used to sell a TON of DVD's but now it's not worth the hassle... I'm just gonna start sending them to you now. HA!

On the up-side, there are millions of foreign sellers now that pay little to no fees & their stuff comes directly from the source country, cutting out the middle men resulting in super cheap prices.

unfortunately it doesnt work that way. a couple years ago i payed who i thought was a reputable seller $800 for a laptop that i never received, i thought since i payed with paypal that they would have my back but no, i got less then $100 of my money back and Ebay still allowed the seller to keep on scamming. i havent payed more than $30-$40 on ebay for anything since.

The thing that pissed me off was the guy that won it and didn't pay, even after ebay was involved, i was only able to leave him positive feedback. even though he didn't pay, no chance to leave a negative or neutral feedback. it had to be positive.
