I am not an ebay veteran, use the site occasionally. Will try to find fair deals, and sometimes sell on it.
4 weeks ago I bought 2 12V lithium ridgid batteries and charger, advertised like new, for 50.00 shipped to my home. I bought them on a friday, I did not pay on Saturday, sunday I recieve a message “can I get paid” and on Monday I paid in full. I get very busy in the shop, so a little more then 2 weeks pass and I realize I never got the package. I began sending messages, 3 in all, just requesting status. The seller never would respond, finally I opened a case requesting ebay encourage the seller to ship the items I purchased. 4 days after I opened the case, the seller finally responded that his mother had passed away and he will issue me a refund.
Hmmm, so I am sympathetic to the passing of his mother, but why would the seller now refuse to ship the items after holding my money for the past month. We have needed the batteries for some time now, we only have 3 batteries left we are sharing at the shop and 2 more would have given us 5 which would be sufficient. In fact, I was at HD yesterday, they had my ridgid 12v gun, 2 batteries and charger on sale for 89.00. A great deal and I almost bought a set, but I try not to go looking for reasons to spend money and I also knew in the back of my mind I had already committed to buying 2 batteries in like new condition on Ebay, so I restrained.
Now tomorrow I am going to HD in hopes they have not sold out of those 4 sets they had on sale.
Oh well, hopefully the guy does not drag his feet on getting me my refund.
