This is one of the reasons I've stopped selling stuff on Ebay. Just not going to deal with it. The position I've taken, all my life, is you buy it, it's yours. End of story. You didn't check it out well enough? Who's problem is that? I don't sell broken stuff and I always describe it accurately and I don't hide info. I've been selling vintage motorcycle's and parts for YEARS and that's been my policy forever. If you don't like it after the sale...then sell it on. But don't call me because that ship has already sailed.Sadly in this day and age people who complain after the sale, looking for full or partial refunds, absurd claims about why they want a refund etc, are given lots of power.
Ebay will pretty much give a buyer a refund, for any reason, months after you’ve sold something. They blindly side with the buyer no matter how trivial or absurd the reason.
Lots of “renters” out there take advantage of this, so it pays to know who your selling to, and if they are likely to contact you 45 days later asking to return soemthing.
