those ebay rules make no sense,they favor the buyer & harm the seller. WITH all these crazy ebay rules/policies in place that favor the buyer & harm the seller. It's apparent that ebay views the sellers as the ultimate evil that tries to scam the buyer,can't be trusted. needs to be constantly be policed with rules that make no sense & always win in favor of the buyer. apparently ebay thinks ebay sellers can't be trusted with a ten foot pole. ebay most likely views the average ebay sellers as a guy who lives in his moms basement,a pedophile,has a record with the police,flunked out of school,has no job,has no girlfriend,no wife & tries to sell stuff to scam buyers at any chance he'll get/grab. WHILE EBAY VIEWS THE BUYERS AS A ANGEL SENT FROM HEAVEN WHO CAN DO NO WRONG & HAS A HEART OF PURE GOLD,A HEART MORE PURE THAN SNOW WHITE FROM THE WALT DISNEY MOVIES. Why exactly does ebay favor the buyers & try to harm the sellers so much on their site. by putting crazy laws in place that give the buyer more power,makes the buyer the boss & puts the sellers in extortion situations. or the buyer will threaten to leave a negative feedback???????????????????? The ebay sellers are paying all the auction fees,paypal fees,credit card fees & so forth. so basically the ebay seller is paying all those fees to keep ebay running/alive & able to pay their bills & see a profit on their ebay end. all the buyer does is bid on a ebay auction & pays the seller for the item & pay shipping fees for the item. SHOULD'nt ebay grant more power to the seller & grant less power to the buyer. because the seller is paying all those extra fees to list a item & so forth basically paying to keep ebay alive/running/getting profits. buyers on ebay are allowed to leave negative,positive or nuetral feedback. sellers can't & are prevented from leaving negative feedback to the buyer. sellers are only allowed to leave positive feedback. buyers have up to 4 days to send payment for a ebay auction they won. if payment isn't sent in 4 days a ebay seller can go to the ebay site & have ebay officially email them stating they have 4 days MORE/EXTRA/ADDITIONALLY to send a paypal payment. So basically a buyer is allowed 8 days to send a paypal payment to the seller. why the 8 day grace period. shouldn't it be like 3 days since a paypal payment takes seconds to be sent thru the internet????? I just recently found out that ebay buyers are allowed to leave a negative feedback to the buyer without even sending a paypal payment to the seller. so basically while the seller is waiting 8 days for the payment to arrive,the buyer can leave a negative feedback at any time he wishes without sending a paypal payment. Here's THE CRAZY PART. A ebay buyer is allowed to accumulate 4 ebay unpaid item strikes before ebay steps in & put his ebay account on suspension. my guess is the ebay buyer is allowed 3 to 4 suspensions before ebay bans him permantly & cancels out his account. once that happens the ebay buyers can chose to open up another ebay account in his wife's name,girlfriends name,parents name,kids name,friends name. the ebay buyer with the banned account can probably also use the same credit card number,address & ISP address with a differnt family/friends name on the account. shouldn't there at the very least be a prevent button on the ebay system. that prevents/blocks a buyer from leaving a negative feedback until he has at the very least sent a paypal payment to the seller. ebay buyers are allowed to click on the payment sent button. regardless is they went to paypal or not to send payment to the seller. shouldn't that button at the very least be on hold & the buyer prevented from clicking on that "payment sent link" until he has actually sent a paypal payment thru paypal to the buyer of the ebay auction he won. SO BASICALLY EBAY BUYERS CAN CLICK ON THE PAYMENT SENT LINK ON THE EBAY AUCTION PAGE THEY WON "AND NOT EVEN SEND A PAYPALPAL PAYMENT TO THE EBAY SELLER." Trying to explain all these crazy rules to the ebay customer service phone number employess is like talking to a washing machine. What really upsets me about ebay,is there is no attempt to fix the ebay rules that make no sense. apparently from what I gather ebay favors the buyers & hates the seller. by ebay granting so much power to the buyer & granting less power to the seller. this basically leaves ebay sellers wide open to buyers trying to extort extra stuff from them or they'll threaten to leave a negative feedback. Please if you have anymore ebay seller rules that make no sense & harm the seller please post them in this thread.
