What to do when an eBay seller does not send you an invoice?

Asked by mirza (5042points) November 7th, 2007

I bought this thing from eBay last night that was listed as Buy It Now . It said on the description that the shipping was $10. However after buying it, when i went to check out, the shipping field was blank and eBay asked to ask for an invoice from the seller. I did so but have not gotten any reply yet. I also emailed him personally again just to make sureWhat should i do? Wait? Complain to eBay?

This sounds like fraud. Report it to eBay, and consider yourself lucky you didn’t get taken.

Perchik is right. Most likely, the seller is scamming through ebay, Let us know if you get the refund.

Or, maybe, the seller just made a mistake in listing the item….. Damn humans..

@modern: The seller is offering a full refund – and I am pretty sure that it was a mistake on his part and he did correct it here But still he listed it for 43 and he is required to sell it for 43 by law. So i filed a complaint with eBay as perchik said

He offered a full refund, but did he pay the refund? Have you received the refund? If so, my apologies to the unknown seller. If not, I suspect the offer is a ploy to encourage you to pay the “correct” amount.

@modern: the seller refunded the money to my paypal account

Then that’s settled. You’re lucky, because the “oops I listed the wrong amount” line is a standard ebay scam. Glad you got your money back.
