All of a sudden they were asking me to add a "reimbursement payment method", as in my credit card info, so if the buyer doesn't receive item and file a complaint, eBay can refund them by basically stealing money directly from my account without my permission.
That's pretty bad, isn't it?
I mean, if an item i've bought is lost or stolen along the way, i get bummed, really, but i don't expect the seller to pay for it. Never have.
But now, eBay apparently does.
And i was just about to agree to the terms, cause i need their site to sell my stuff, when this gem of a line caught my attention: "eBay may charge your credit card on a one-time, sporadic or recurring basis". Uhm, no, i don't think so?!
I realize that none of these things may ever happen, and so far everything i've sold has made it safe to the buyer, but still, they're basically saying they can raid my credit card anytime they want!
Their buyer protection program is i good idea, but come on, how about a little seller protection here and there?
If any other eBayers have anything to say about this, please let me know in the comments.
So, again, i am forced to take it to the blog, and i have added a couple of vintage dresses to the untitled thriftstore.
Please go take a look, let me know if you require further info on any of the items, and if you think you wanna own something, leave me a message or send me an email.
There are no prices, so just make me an offer!
