    From your post, I would think that a lot of your eBay problems stem from your writing method. Take your time, write complete sentences, use correct punctuation, and use spell check. You will find if you put the effort into your description, you will have fewer problems with buyers. Hope this helps.

    Whats your ebay name? cause if your description of the items your selling is anything like your posts on this forum-i find it hard that you would get any buisness at all.

    Hoolagrin speaks the truth. honestly, most of us dont have the time to read through a bunch of run on sentences without punctuation and capital letters liek this and taking the little extra time and effort to improve grammar and spelling will really help in the long run...

    whats this about? I dont understand it at all. I'm not trying to be mean, but it doesnt have a real cohesive sentence to base an opinion from.

    *cracks knuckles* "OHKAY! Super-Engrish Translator Autocon v2.4 - GOOOO!!!"

    My interpretation:

    Title: Bad Buyers; Beware of their schemes

    Well here's my post. A lot of buyers dont read (and then nearly) always complain on (the) pricing of shipping. Or sometimes they will not pay until the 7-day limit and complain on why (their package) hasn't been shipped yet. When selling a figure always answer (the buyer's) questions when asked, always ship with confirmation, and never send a toy on first class unless its with a signature confirmation. Now (be) careful with the international (buyers); they tend to say they never got (the item) because they don't want to pay their tariff fees.

    (As for item description) I've had customer complaints of the item over play wear and sticker wear. Even though I listed (the blemishes) in (the items) description. This is what i deal with everyday. When making a sale Always try to email them (asking) if they read the description (be)cause they (sometimes) only intend to see the pic; thinking it looks good (despite) the sellers description of the auction.

    I (won't) mention any names, but always give advice .....

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Honestly, if your descriptions are as poorly put together as that huge run on sentence it's not a wonder that you are having problems on eBay. I find that when I'm selling items that being clear and to the point about the item and it's flaws (or lack there of) usually makes all transactions run that much smoother.

    Most of us type fast and use capital letters and punctuation. Also, we know when we left caps lock on.
