I was thrilled last week when I sold this Sony Playstation 3. I picked it up at a yard sale and paid more for it than I usually pay at yard sales, $25. But the seller said they really didn't play games, just used it to watch movies and recently upgraded to a PS4.
I noticed the buyer had zero feedback. I have had good luck with selling to zero feedback. And he was an international sale. Not a problem.. until now.
I received a notice from USPS on Sunday that it had arrived in Miami on 8-24-14 and had departed on its way to final destination.
The ever vigilant ebay sent me a notice today, 8-25-14 stating:
"We had to cancel bids for the buyer,******, because they aren't registered on eBay:
161388596360 - Sony Playstation 3 Black Piano Model CEDHK01 80gb
In these types of situations, we'll credit the final value fee for removed listings won by this buyer, and also the insertion fee if it was a single-quantity listing.
All associated fees have been credited."
The buyer paid promptly and everything seemed fine, so I shipped. Now I can only hope that the buyer contacts ebay and gets everything squared away or the package gets sent back to me for some reason.
Great...why couldn't this have happened to that tube of hemorrhoid cream I shipped to Sweden instead ?
