    "As seen on Treasurenet" lol

    oh yeah, I forgot about that. I don't even know if I qualify, or the free ones I've had in the past was some kind of special offer. I think was was just an offer because I haven't had anything free for a while. It's tough to plan it for me anyway so I tend not to pay much attention. If I ever get super organized and things going great I might look into it, or watch for the free listing times for me when they come up.

    Of course canceling the transaction is the best choice, or I wouldn't have said it.

    I had put any PayPay claim in there, but edited it out. I seem to remember an instance in the past where I was covered by PayPal, but the buyer also got their refund. My assumption though is that it was based on my history with PayPal and eBay and they just sort of took one for the team. The last time I had a legit negative feedback had to be over 5 years ago. My only one in the past 5 years was over a person thinking the 20 plastic star wars lightsabers they bought for $2 each would shoot out actual beams of light that they could fight with. PayPal denied the buyer's claim on that one, but they still gave me a negative, haha.

    Back to the echeck thing. The reason I was told its an echeck is because his credit card may have been cancelled or expired or he didnt list his bank account or he has insufficient funds.

    I believe that all he has to do is list his bank account and repay. If he refuses to list his bank account or credit card with Paypal or make sure he has sufficient funds in PayPal, why is this my problem? Why should I have to wait for an echeck from Paypal or he may even need to deposit into his bank account? If he bids, he should be prepared to pay.

    Now he is ignoring my emails but its possible that he thinks I accepted his echeck..

    I don't think it matters too much, but most people seem to be on this forum on Sunday nights so I'm sure the same holds true for ebay as well. I used to stick to just Sunday night but now I don't care which night, just tend to wait until after business hours on the West coast. Will never know if all these little things matter, or make enough difference to think about, so you just go with your gut, because it's all you can do. I didn't include going with past experience because ebay is way too unpredictable, especially for auctions. I've had weeks where I didn't expect great things and I killed it (for what was on) and other weeks where I was pumped up for a great night, and it seemed like a bar that no one was sticking around at. That's why I just do the best I can and whatever happens, happens, because most of the time I do fairly well, and everyone is going to have some bad days. In other words I look at the big picture over a much longer time than just one sale, or one week.

    I guess Delivery Confirmation is only good for tracking.

    Yep, that's another thing, you're going to get some real nutcases and I had the displeasure of dealing with one last week. You really can't win because they do always get you in one way or another.

    For most lower end items I don't think a getting a signature is a big deal because most people are not going to try to rip you off for a small amount, and the post office doesn't lose very many. If every buyer was honest I probably would never insure a thing, or just the very high priced stuff, because I'd save way more money then what it would cost me in lost mail. Everyone has to look at their own situation because if you're spending $400 extra a month to cover yourself, and nothing gets lost for 3 months, you just wasted $1,200. Even if you got ripped off twice for a $100 a pop, you're still up a grand. I sell a lot International and had to come up with a shipping and calculated risk plan that works best for my situation. Sending state to state you guys probably have no idea how good you have it.

    Actually, it's not even good for that. Sometimes it will get scanned, sometimes it won't. The USPS doesn't promise any tracking and basically tells you that you should be thankful if it does get tracked.

    Im going to try to cancel the transaction but it will only be successful if the buyer agrees or if he doesnt respond in 7 days. If the buyer doesnt agree, Im back to square one with a very annoyed buyer..

    My listings were free last week. I hope it wasnt a special offer. I only pay 10 cents for a colorful border.

    Yep. And just think how you'd feel if it showed delivered, and the person still filed a claim against you, and you lost. I think it's stupid and delivery confirmation should be good enough.

    That's why you should talk to him! Most transactions that go wrong could have been avoided by communication. I very rarely would ever file on someone or leave a negative without talking to them first. If you don't, they are just going to react through the system like you did, and possibly leave a negative.

    I have an ebay store and probably why I don't get the free 50. Think you're fine.

    I have had packages that didnt arrive in Colombia and Italy. I prefer to do states only but I had to add International to try and increase bids hoping they wouldnt actually win. I still eliminate Colombia and sometimes Mexico.. Colombia once returned my camera a year later and the box was full of ice pick holes. They also opened it up, ripped the packaging and put it all back in the box and returned it to me (a year later). I think it was a customs thing. I had refunded the buyer a year earlier.

    I havent figured out how to save my settings on Colombia, Mexico and Italy. Im tired of having to scroll through the entire list of countries every listing so I just let it ride now hoping for the best. I sometimes eliminate the entire South America.

    .
    IP, he doesnt reply. He hasnt replied a single time. I cannot communicate if he refuses to reply. I keep trying every day. But then again he may think he has already paid.

    If he doesnt respond in 4 days, I think I should start the cancellation process. What do you think?

    It is possible he hasn't checked his messages/email. If I was you I'd write him again and say that you are ready to ship, asking if he can send a direct payment from his pp balance. Of course it's unlikely he can, but the idea is to just get a reply and not look like the bad guy.

    Yes thats exactly what Im trying to do. Now I have to go into my eBay setting and change the automatic report non payers from 4 days. I may have to give him more time to respond.

    If he had paid, he would have received it Saturday. My research seems to tell me that when I cancel a PayPal echeck, it may be put into his PayPal account but other research says it goes back into his bank account. Either way I think its too late to admit I was wrong. I stated that I dont accept echecks and thats my story and Im sticking with it.

    I just don't ship internationally at all. While you will lose out on bidders, I'm just not interested enough to care I guess, haha. Too many countries don't offer any proof of delivery with shipping, so it's a crap shoot.
