Thought I had got myself a good deal on some gauges.
Then when I did some research on getting the sensors I realise they have been listed wrong.
They are boat transmission gauges ffs.
Why list them in the vehicle/car category if they are for a fecking boat grrrr

Guess I should of done a search before I bought them.

No because when I looked at the gauges on a google search they lost them as 12v/24v so I thought the seller had just missed the 12v off lol

I know mate lol
I have got a full refund. Seller is being a dick. But atleast he refunded me without hassle.
He said a boat is a vehicle. Correct him if he is wrong.
So I replied that he listed them in car parts and that a car isnt a boat. Correct me if I am wrong lmfao

technically Stu it was good of him to give you your money back as like Leighton said they are listed as 24v.
Many older & new diesel lorry's truck's, van's are 24v so the listing is in a way correct.

50/50 i guess.
I did thank him for rhe refund. He just wanted to be a dick and started talking like a total wanker!!

Usually you have at least a week or 14 days as its distance selling so he could either refund now and save the hassle of you posting back or fight it and loose his case because eBay will always side with buyer especially as its brought online. Also would he risk a negative feedback too?

Ebay is all about the buyer

Yep ebay sucks as a seller as you get some right cocks buying stuff they don't want or telling you the cat pressed the bid/buy button etc :-S
For a private seller with used items a lot of distance seller & sale of goods act does not apply but you still bent over due to ebays piss poor policy of sucking up to buyer .

I've never really used eBay to sell stuff. Dealing with people on forums and locally seems to be easier and less hassle. In saying saying that eBay only works if you have people selling stuff, so eBay needs to keep both happy.

^ I've had couple problems selling stuff, buyer emailing me with blunt message say he don't want item over 2 days after bought it, I already posted it, sent blunt reply & was expecting issue of not received or not as described dispute.
More problem with auctions, had few non payers with all excuses you could ever dream up.
Sold some snap on spanners had hassle from buyer say not as described, got scratches on them :-O they where close to immaculate & I done loads of very decent qaulity images stating some light marks, had to drop some money or risk being robbed from account credit of expensive insured return delivery along with cost of original delivery & ebay fee of 10% (not refundable on disputes you loose) of which could of been around £45 lost from my pocket because of cock buyers & very poor ebay policy.
Much prefer selling locally & cash in hand . eBay & PayPal fees are ridiculous and amount to about 13.5%, they include postage cost to fees too the thieving swines  ...

I think it comes down to the type of person buying not so much the system some people are just out to get a freebie or knock the price and try to find any niggly defect in an item just to get a few quid back ..... ive been buying off ebay for a good long while and have never givd any buyer shit or knocked them ive always been reasonable i had a item that didnt work (mobile phone usb port part ) that i contacted seller wich i swapped and paid postage my way back replacement item was sent and same didnt work .... he gave me a full refund i never gave him bad feedback or anything as he went out hes way to help and comunication i couldnt fault he was just unlucky with a dodgy batch of parts .....so my experiance with selling and buying have been quite smooth so far ....

I sold a emblem for my daily runner i never fitted 6 months ago on eBay.


Last week I had a paypal dispute open for this item saying seller wanted a refund as it was not real carbon.

I replied saying it was described as carbon effect and it was 6 months ago so why didnt they contact me as a seller om forced to give a 14 day money back gurantee by eBay and they never mentioned anything to me.

The dispute was resolved in the buyers favour and they refunded him so I hit the roof and they then gave me my money back and said they would pay for it.

Basically they are feeding the scammers...

That's shit ^ I have to say the only problem I've really had was when I order about 16 metres of braided hose and they sent me 2 metres. All resolved and still gave positive feedback. It was depends on the scenario and what happens. Sometimes mistakes are made but long as people are reasonable. There are just a lot of idiots out there.

I have had a few shit dealings on ebay. But its the easiest place to sell and quickest too.
Charges are a joke. And paypal charges change when they feel like it!
I try and add the charges into the listing price.
If I advertise something on here. And on ebay. The ebay listing is around £10 more to cover costs..

Mistakes happen but that's online shopping. Sometimes you save money but I still like to buy or see items ie pick up the phone or buy at a shop.  The other week I wanted a 62mm wholesaw to cut my rear bumper. 62 is slightly odd ball size.A 64mm arrived fair do the guy sent the 62 mm second time no charge so I got 2 for the price of 1 and I use the 64 at work for cutting out downlights. Trouble is because it was wrong the bumper is still uncut and not dropped off at painters. So something little is now 3 weeks behind as I been away and I let my painter down which messes him around etc
