Oh I shouldn't worry on that score, DK.. Your replies always seem to come out a little more refined, and a little more helpful than mine!

Besides, on the occasion in question, I wasn't even trying to help others... I literally did just turn up to take the p*55, so I deserve everything I got... including the punch on the nose, when it arrives!!

I am a lot more diplomatic and polite online, as I normally read what I have written before I press the "Send" button.

Hence I do not like using the phone as I can come across as very abrupt.

Staffies, you could try gumtree or the free ads on here. Despite its evils I have always found ebay to achieve the best price and quickest sales, as the audience is so much larger than anywhere else. Just factor the selling fees into your listing prices.

Yes fully agree Jim. We've noticed recently more buyers claiming things aren't as advertised and seeking reduction etc under buyers guarantee esp as seller has to pay return postage and as such is stumped either way!
Also PayPal are complete con artists!!

Blimey, I must have been lucky so far, have bought and sold over 100 items on there at a fairly steady stream over the last 5 or so years and never had anything bad happen. I must admit I always write things up in great detail with loads of photos so it would be hard to return as not as described and everthing goes tracked and signed for....

We do as well. However in one case a tent we sold suddenly had an oil stain on it despite photos before sent. eBay held us responsible. Either full refund plus return postage of 40 or deal. In real terms test meant a net loss of 80 as had to pay back postage to him.
He was a liar. It's commonplace now and you have no protection at all even if detailed and photographed. Forums are literally full of sellers doing their nuts!

That must have been so frustrating with the unfairness of the situation Staffies. Not sure if it makes any difference in a situation like that, but I always select the "returns not accepted" box when listing things.

We sold most of our nearly new camping equipment through "Preloved" - it should go well at this time of the year.  I was sad to see it go but realize now I did myself a huge favour.  Wishing you all the best for the future, Staffies.  Tony.

Hi

I agreed with Staffies I had some fun with EBay over the year with selling things this why I decide to keep things simple.

Sold number of tents of the years for myself and that be luckily as make sure the person check everything before leave the house.

I do feel that EBay are wrong sometime and treat the person who buys the item unfairly and that why I decide late last year wouldn't sell on EBay.

Case from me I need to buy another laptop for family member I ending begin out of pocket for three months till EBay decide I was right and buyer was wrong that I prove everything so cannot to why we paid the fees is not willing to help us.

No one in this day and age can afford to be out pocket and glad that Staffies was more then fair with me with the sale of Karsten.

So in the end I leave the selling of EBay to mine brother now as cannot do with the hassle with it.

Like all I work hard for mine money and never had money giving by folks and sadly there not here anymore.

Hi Tony, thank you for your kind words. I shall miss many many aspects of camping but must try to think positively and I think you are right being proactive is doing me a favour!

Staffies, hang on to the good memories.  On "Countryfile" this week was a piece about climbing the "inaccessible pinnacle" on Skye, I said to my wife "I've climbed that".  She said "You must be bloody mad".
