    While browsing Ebay I saw the following in a listing:

    "i use the shipping calcultator for shipping so dont whine about the price afer the fact. We don't ship to P.O boxes unless it will fit in a standard size mailbox , And if I have to go to the post office to ship something to a P.O. box, there will be a Twenty dollar charge for that. i DO NOT GIVE OUT TRACKING N.O.s AT THIS TIME ,It takes up too much time "

    I've had my share of annoying customers, but I wouldn't want to buy a thing from a person who can't even pretend to tolerate or accommodate them [​IMG]

    That's just rude. If you don't enjoy doing something, don't do it, no need to be rude about it.

    I had an aggravating episode with them during my last purchase (not that seller!). The seller decided he was going to apply sales tax even though he was a private seller, shipping out of state, and the sales tax was for a state that neither of us live in (and incidentally the highest in the country). I told him there had been an error made on the invoice, and his response was that he had paid more for the item and couldn't take a loss. Ebay were no help whatsoever, apparently the sale is only legally binding if you're the buyer.

    Quote:Yes, we either have a 12 mile drive to our mailbox to meet the mail lady at 9.17am exactly, or a 20 mile drive to the nearest post office. I always figured that expense was part of my costs for doing business.

    I ran into a seller who became extremely nasty when I paid for a sale with a credit card on Paypal.

    Not my fault he started both auctions at 1 cent.
    Not my fault they both closed at around 20 cents.
    Shipping, by the way, was going to cost him ONE STAMP because this was a small paper item that could be slipped between two index cards in a standard sized envelope (not even a long envelope).

    I got a horrid email about how he was going to LOSE money.

    I told him I'd be watching for the items.

    2 weeks later, nothing. Went online to do something else on Paypal & saw that he'd "refunded' the money.
    He claimed he "lost" the items so couldn't send them.

    By the way, the actual value of the two items together was under a buck at best. Average trading value for those items was about 40-50 cents if sold on the open market.

    Hope saving a buck or less was worth the two negative feedbacks I gave him...
