I asked about the shipping too

My question
For the price of shipping, would it be delivered by horse drawn carrage, limo, naked women?
or just plane brown wrapper fraudulently shipped under media rate?
Just curious



His response

It would be deliver by OsmaBenLaden. No just kidding. It would be delieverd in a 10ft tall box. Shipped next day. Kidding again!!! Just regular box with standard shipping.

What a jerk.
Seriously. I know there are stupid people out there, but that's just rude to do something like that.

Should I start selling "slightly used paintballs"?

Not to get too off topic, but this is what I don't understand about eBay. I get an auction pulled within 30 minutes of being posted because I listed PayPal as one of several payment methods, but requested only a direct payment if that be used, but auctions like this guy's are allowed up even after complaints have been filed and he's blatantly cheating people (including eBay)... Stupid eBay...

Check the paypal rules and regulations.
I believe you are not allowed to dictate how the payment is to be made.(or something of that sort)
As you are not allowed (by law I believe) to revert paypal fees back on the seller.
Your best bet is to ask the questions from the cosed auction and read up on the paypal regulations

I realize that now, but what bothered me is that they closed the auction without notice. A nice little message saying "edit this out or it gets booted" would've been nice, especially since I had 2 other payment methods listed. Point is, they come down quick on me, but not someone blatantly trying to cheat people...

The biggest problem with ebay, is that they react first, and don't ask questions.
They generally don't chase people either. If you had an auction pulled, nine chances out of ten, somebody dimed you out.
I had old Navy uniforms (thick wool ones) up for auction.
One of them was pulled with the premis of selling law enforcement uniform (which is a big ebay no-no)
I had 9 of them up and only one was pulled.
I questioned them as to why and the sent in at least 6 other auctions of identicle items.
they re-instated the auction and removed all marks against my account. They admitted they made the mistake.

They give your account a mark if they pull an auction? Hmm, I guess I better give the rules another once over. I did finally get a response from them, but it wasn't too much help. Eh, at least they responded...

Well, if I had the money to waste, I would have bid on it and had him send it to our space station. I would pick it up there one of these days.
