A minor point, but if you use paypal you cannot rely on section 75 credit-card protection against seller misconduct because paypal counts as an indirect transaction. More info on: Martin's money website.

According to my estimations, the item will arrive here next wedensday. I'm going to film all unboxing procedure, stay tuned :)


Honestly, it's very unlikely that someone with 100% feedback and a score of over 600 is trying to screw you.

If you're not happy, I'm sure you'll be able to negotiate a deal for either partial refund (and keep the item(s)) or a full refund and return.


Add to that the fact that you haven't paid him yet , and he say's he has sent an extra item with it , and your only to pay AFTER you get it and are happy .
He would seem to be an honest trader with integrity , if your not happy with what you receive , organise a return or renegotiate for the lens that you do want.

Thanks.


It should be if you register it with Sony.

Good evening,

I have a different question. I recently won an auction for a new A77 plus 18-135 kit from a UK seller. The item arrived indeed sealed as per the listing complete with European guarantee card. My only concern is with the guarantee: all I have for a receipt/invoice is the paypal packing slip and the ebay/paypal transaction details. DO you think this will be enough for warranty purposes?

Thanks.

Probably.

But on a "not as described" case, if you fight for it, they'll pay the return shipping. It might take a while though.

I had a situation once where I bought a Fuji S2 Pro (known to have a high sensor failure rate) that was sold as working, but arrived with the failed sensor. I wanted to keep the lens that came with it and get a partial refund, but the seller insisted I return the whole thing, and then fought paying the return shipping.

The case took so long that I ended up trading the lens for a Nikon D100 (I needed a Nikon body, that's why I bought the thing in the first place), and a few days later eBay found in my favor, but I was still going to have to return it (the seller would have paid the return shipping), so I ended up closing the case and leaving negative feedback. I sold the broken S2 (clearly marked as broken), and I think I got $25 for it. It's one of the few times I've lost money on an eBay transaction. If I had been more patient, I wouldn't have. But it was also a big hassle.

I think they resolve cases faster now. I recently had another escalated case, and it went much faster, although the total dollar amount was much lower.

Oh, and make sure you pay by PayPal, so that you're covered by buyer protection.

Very, very strange for someone to ship before payment is confirmed. BTW, that status message doesn't mean the USPS has actually received a package yet.

He has 100% positive feedback, more than 600 items sold.

Then I don't understand this weird situation... but if you pay for an item and do not receive what was described, you can later open a case with eBay, and you will almost certainly win and get your money back.

Do I understand that you have not paid yet, but he says he already sent the item? If so, that is unheard-of and is a strong signal of something fishy happening. How is his feedback?

Look for an option to cancel the sale and follow the instructions. If the seller acknowledges that he made the error in the listing, you and he can both agree to completely cancel the sale. That will resolve things quickly and nobody gets penalized.
