  • sedgleytruck Matthew Riley (@sedgleytruck) reported

    To the scruffy **** that’s just bought a Nintendo switch for £200 using my eBay + Paypal accounts and collected it from the Argos in Derby - I hope you get run over by a bus and die a slow painful death... #karmasabitch

  • empire_of_dust_ Empire of Dust (@empire_of_dust_) reported

    Just received the issue of BLACK MASK I bought on eBay and it's marvelous. More pics later after I finish working.

  • MJRVex MajorVex (@MJRVex) reported

    @JenMsft I wanted a PC, but couldn't afford one so I gathered parts from thrift shops & free "broken" PCs and built one (IBM). I used it to start learning a few basic languages & signed up with ebay - sold a bunch of stuff to buy new PC parts, software...and just went from there.

  • BigKidsKollect BigKidsKollect (@BigKidsKollect) reported from Town of East Lyme, Connecticut

    @ac_ledesma @WatchTheBreaks SEOs are key for sales but also the downfall of a legit search. Everybody wants to key word but not know what they are selling. If eBay/selling market would allow a downthumb or some other way to show that click bait titles will get you pushed down the SEO standards I’d be for it

  • trog69 tom rogers (@trog69) reported

    @reading_while @ChicagoLocal134 @RyanKFerguson @Wendys_Garden I'm donating to the ACLU. Just a note that I received a pair of new speakers from eBay and one had a defective tweeter. Instead of the cost of shipping them back, they just sent me another pair of speakers. They were $350/pair, down from the $450 they usually sold for. Happy!

  • rees_kristian Kristian (@rees_kristian) reported

    This item cannot be resent as I is a one off item sold on eBay by a private seller hence my total disappointment plus I am not sure why the seller would just replace and take the financial hit when it was broken by @RoyalMail. I have already completed the generic online form.

  • Psshaw Marissa (@ the RAWRing 20s) (@Psshaw) reported

    @TheNazzaro Problem is when it dies and you realize you‘re better off going to eBay than Wacom themselves, alas

  • omraj_jeetun Omraj jeetun whistle-blower on ModernSlavery&more, (@omraj_jeetun) reported

    @BasildonCoverUp @AccusedToo Pretty cheap but exceptionally handy when gangstalkers are at work. Spypen was £6.00 on Ebay Hidden Camera Detector around same price, this one do exactly same as £200 spyfinderpro Will not let down. I tried it successfully

  • cardiff4life David J Young (@cardiff4life) reported

    @RhydBowPhill @eBay_UK @eBay @adidasoriginals @adidasUK @adidas @ConsumrRightsUK Definitely fake. Had same issue from ebay before. Got a refund and never used them again for trainers

  • randyradloff Randy Radloff (@randyradloff) reported

    @FallingRockTap The DFH Signature. Found one on eBay last year. Shipped from UK in a padded envelope. It arrived in about a hundred broken shards 😩

  • theCallingCrow Calling Crow (@theCallingCrow) reported

    @aimeecozza @amazon From what I’m reading it’s becoming a problem on a lot of the platforms where small sellers try to do business. Amazon’s policies are likely driving it, but I hear these complaints from eBay and Etsy sellers, too.

  • alissa914g Lauren (hindsight is 2020: Vote Democrat) (@alissa914g) reported

    Never had an issue on eBay buying used phones until recently... and TMobile's response to it was essentially, "you'll have to talk to the seller...." No, how about if you give me info or get involved somehow (if you won't give me that) so I can file charges or something.

  • lavietidhar Lavie Tidhar (@lavietidhar) reported

    @straycarnivore @TorDotComPub I grabbed myself a SINGLE COPY just so I can sell it on ebay for a fortune down the line, of course

  • FatherlyLeader Guel aka Pelon (@FatherlyLeader) reported

    @mercari_app since you quickly it resolved on the issue that wasn’t resolve. Be aware that Mercari won’t give you your money back for unused postage like @eBay would. @meecari will give you a credit that expires shortly after.

  • creatingdesire Best Impressions (@creatingdesire) reported

    I nearly forgot I did all those illustrations all those years ago - not bad, eh! If I see you selling your copy on eBay I'll come and let all your tyres down!

  • Rona_1776 💜 Rona⁷ 💜 @ trying to get BTS tickets (@Rona_1776) reported

    Also I think my gamecube controller maybe slightly broken. I'm gonna get a new one. I'm weary of Amazon tbh so if I see bad reviews I might check ebay.

  • _kidvid_ kidvid (@_kidvid_) reported

    I picked this #c64-c up on eBay. Unfortunately it’s not completely working. I have a garbled screen issue which is looking like a ram fault. I have a new chip on the way and hopefully the socketing will make troubleshooting easier

  • treatexobetter 𝓜. (@treatexobetter) reported

    10. following my last point, if you're gonna sell on ebay, be aware of the seller fees. you gotta pay a few cents per every dollar made to ebay. i recommend you always pay your fees right away to avoid problems with the platform. you could get in trouble if you owe them!

  • NightWolve1975 NightWolve (@NightWolve1975) reported

    @Walmart But yeah, thanks for asking! This is one purchase I'm extremely happy with because I actually returned an LG phone I bought from eBay which was also beautiful with an octa-core CPU, BUT, it was STILL stuck with slow 2.4Ghz WiFi... Marketing didn't accurately list WiFi details!

  • ___oo oo (@___oo) reported

    Transportation as service + smile: was trying to solve issues of bike thefts, even wrote to @TimHarford after @eBay took down my listing. Hadn’t thought @Halfords_uk marketing budgets could be used to encourage more returns. incredible @SteBurke44 Via @johnsweeneyroar /

  • riiteeshg teshyy (@riiteeshg) reported

    @redhand_k @aminah_mck It’s a medium format film camera and takes 120 film but this one here is broken so I gotta get it checked out. It was ~$40 on eBay

  • VirshonF Virshon24 (@VirshonF) reported

    Instead what you want to do is take down this number (save it to your phone) 866 540-3229 - eBay customer service Call them and ask for assistance

  • XeroRain XeroRain🐺 (@XeroRain) reported

    @vegatext It existed around the time ACWW was relevant for awhile ages ago, it was basically a website you can bid/buy items you were looking for/wanted to sell like on eBay, it was a really cool fanmade trade site haha, I searched it but idk when they actually shut down bc it doesnt exist

  • Lightninging92 ⚡ Lightninging⚡ (@Lightninging92) reported

    @TidmouthThunder I was hoping for $60 for the three. Right now at the lowest I can find them new on eBay for about $23 per, and two of mine are missing one buffer head each... So I round down

  • sairukau sairuk (@sairukau) reported

    We also actively monitored eBay for a long time reporting sellers etc. All this has kind of fallen by the wayside since the whole trademark stuff went down some years back.

  • AskeBay Ask eBay (@AskeBay) reported

    @IrmaGrace26 2/2 don’t forget that your seller will have 3 business days to get your issue resolved. If they’re unable to, you can ask eBay to step in and help. Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions. ~Manuel.

  • rdgout LearnTeachRepeat (@rdgout) reported

    @Ell_o_Punk There’s always cheap laptops for sale, try eBay or Craigslist. Sometimes VMs don’t do it for me either. I have a bunch of old Dell Latitudes running various OSs, as well as a server running ESX.

  • PorceIaincactus ꧁ 𝓜𝔂𝓼𝓽𝓲𝓬 ꧂ (@PorceIaincactus) reported

    @GTsKombucha Please please tell me this will be available in Canada, and where I can buy it 🥺 If not, I'll hunt it down on eBay and risk the importation fees!

  • AskeBay Ask eBay (@AskeBay) reported

    @KatherineK_NC 2/2 Once you do so, the seller will be notified and will have 3 business days to get the issue resolved. If they’re unable to, you have 21 days to ask eBay to step in and help. Let me know if you need have any questions; I’d love to help. ~Manuel.

    @HeldinEU @Halfords_uk I tend not to use Amazon . I order my branded wipers from private businesses on eBay. Easy to fit.. If it's a problem look on youtube for advice . Pro tip.:. clean windscreen and coat with with 'Rain X' . Also , dampen a cloth with WD40 and wipe the rubber blades.

    @Kat_Schindler I have cheap ebay purchasing issues... I swap the hooks if they cause issues as have plenty ofsilber ones but I can't pass up a pretty costume earring!! 🥰

  • Gregtaylorlaw Greg Taylor (@Gregtaylorlaw) reported

    Worst experience with @eBay customer service over the past 2 weeks. Sold an air rifle to a fraudster who claimed the gun had an issue. They let him send the gun back, but instead he sends me back a rock. Now Ebay has given him back his money, too! #Ebayscam #Ebayfraud

  • guadix88 Jose Valenzuela (@guadix88) reported

    @AskeBay @eBay Hi! I placed an order last June ID: 26-03526-29076 The problem is that the seller has now disappeared but I had a 1 year warranty with them. The phone is now giving me troubles and couldn't find another way to contact you. Please text me back. Thanks!

    @AskeBay I figured it out but also I set up the 2 thing and then it stopped working for a while and got back working after sooo sounds like eBay just has issues. I don’t use my account enough for it to have been hacked this much so clearly the security system eBay has needs to be adjusted

    @nectar I connected my ebay account to Nectar a year ago yesterday I realised I hadn't got this month's points. You eventually rectified this and established it was a technical error at your end. You added 300 points I was owed for Jan, but I've just looked back on eBay and

  • ChasDotCloud Edgeiot (@ChasDotCloud) reported

    @SimonRichards0n @Sonos I agree. I’ve got an amp and connect that are knackered. 30% isn’t enough ( didn’t seem to apply when they had £100 off the amp over Christmas). Just checked tonight and eBay prices are holding up but don’t really want to dump the problem on someone else!!

  • BigSharkGaming BigSharkGamingYT (@BigSharkGaming) reported

    Like seriously, @ebay i've been using you for 15 years with no issues whatsoever. And I have proof FROM the buyer in a message saying they gave me the wrong address and received the item, but they opened a claim saying they didnt and I get penalized for it.

  • katiespitfire @EYK (@katiespitfire) reported

    FFS @eBay_UK sort your 'customer service' out. 21 minutes trying to communicate with your staff member about feedback. Second call I've had to make about the same issue. All I got was attitude. #ebay is solely for buyers now, you don't value your sellers.

    @AlexWood900 (not from Ebay) I had a porcelain sink sent in a cardboard box without even an inch of packing or bubble wrap, then they sent another one in exactly the same way. The manager went down to the warehouse himself and packed the 3rd one. 😂

    @ReillyEagles @mikecarluccifit @TheFitFlipper @massivefamily I started by selling books on Amazon + retail arbitrage. Then moved to PL and eBay. Everything was trial and error, had to find what works for me. I'm glad I was able to go all in, but it hasn't been easy.
