  • It's really up to you. I buy on e-bay a lot and always check the ratings and won't buy from someone who doesn't send the items.

  • It is against e-bay policy to do that. That is why you need to out a reserve bid on the items. Starting bid sort of thing. To just blow off something someone has won fair and square and has sent you the money is the same as fraud. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses and learn from your mistakes. One of lifes lessons. Call it getting an education. Next time put a reserve bid on the items that way you don't sell something that is worth more than 99 cents. Ask yourself...Is it worth getting negative feedback and or possibly losing your right to sell or buy things on e-bay?

  • I have a rating of 100 % but I know i'm going to regret sending these outfits that are like new for only 99cents, I sent a calvin klein brand new skirt for 99 cents last month plus free shipping to a guy that won the bid and it did hurt me but oh well.

  • I've noticed when I put a price on there ebay charge's me an extra fee plus if i sell it they charge me another extra fee, so ebay always rips us off so i stopped selling on ebay a longtime ago because they always want to over charge i think the best way to sell something without being over charged is just having a garage sale at your house.

  • She does not have paypal and you specifically put that only take paypal....there could be a loophole. I read everything to make sure I am not getting jiped. Look it up on ebay. It should tell you. Late with 99 cents....and I thought I have money problems!!!!! But a lot of sellers put that if payment is not received within a certain amount of time that the item goes back to auction and the non-payer gets a mark or whatever against their rating unless other arrangements are made. Like I said, i double check before I buy anything!!!!

  • That's the risk you take when selling on ebay. Personally, I think that would be crappy for you to do (not send them). BUT i'd wait to get paid first. As a consumer, I'd be livid if that happened to me. Not cool. If you want more out of the items you're selling, then LIST THEM that way!

    It's sleazy and slimey the way you're doing "business".

  • Have you ever sold something on Amazon?

  • You are obliged to send them because the buyer paid you what you asked- $11 including shipping.
