What a jerk. Ebay really needs to clean up this kind of behavior. I've reported the listing. We'll see if they remove it.

I asked him : "does the shipping cost cover delivery to space stations ? -Thanks"

He said: "yes. well i put it so high b.c i listed it a couple of times and it cost like $5. to list everytime so i made shipping more and price of the gun less."

should that initial 'yes' lead me to believe he could deliver to a space station ?
anybody know someone that works on a space station, that would like a marker ?
I wonder how a marker would act in space....

This is so he can screw E-Bay out of their cut.

Jaan is right.


I'm gonna report it. In the meantime, someone read the agreements and see if there is some way we can force him to pay shipping That would make my day

Of course, that's also the only reason I expect them to enforce the rule. It hits the bottom line.

Well in his post it says "buyer pays all shipping", as a buyer I would only pay the actual amount to ship, since that would include all shipping fees. If he can show a stamp that cost as much as his shipping price indicates, great, if not what a scammer.
