Selling and Buying.

Alex Colson


Soo to make this more clear, the rants to do with my experiance on multiple places for buying and selling. These include Ebay, LTT classified thread and Facebook/ Direct messeging.



So as a buyer their are things expected of ya, being able to purchase the product, be intrested in the product and be able to communicate with the seller if needed.


As being a buyer on Ebay three times now (positive n Negative) and a buyer here on the LTT forums i tend to be understanding, 


Ebay- first purchase was two monitors going for £55 total, a steal right? Well it was a complicated one. It never arrived the currior never arrived at our door yet it was signed for? I went around my estate and to the area that a GPS would take you to if following it asking if they have recieved a large package sent to this address. Sadly no. Contacted the Seller who said he will contact the currior on this and try to find out. Done what he could so just told me to request the refund and all that would happen is i pay the return fee £12.50 total (could be how he got money without sending an actual package who knows) but lo and behold the same delivery company is seen coming bacl into my estate and stopping infront of one of the houses a retrieving packages.


So this turned out negative as this could have been a fault on the delivery service, lies from neaghbours or just a none existant package.


Purchase other products on ebay (wifi card and GPU) both came with no issue bar the GPU having a coil whine under load (never mentioned in listing). 


LTT Forum:

So cant say much here dealt with the same person each time who was willing enough to low prices down if reasonable and would keep me up to date on the status of the items along with being a good seller and seeing if they had any other products i would be interested in.


All came in good condition and no hassle what so ever bar name of reciever due to goin to a uni accomodation that wont give parcels to a sibling if it not addressed to them.




I have sold two thing that required postage & packaging


One being a halloween costume and the other being a Ps2 bundle.


Halloween costume was odd it got bought, sent and recieved without a single word from the buyer. Bear in mind this is with me informing them on whem it would be posted, and when it was posted so they could expect it soon.


Now the PS2 how ever is a whole different story, bought, sent and recieved with contact to the buyer.

Answering queries and when they should recieve it.


Item was posted on ebay with everything checked. Controller, Buzzers, Mic, games, eye toy and console. 


Listed with what all was working. (Bar a game that i dunno why i listed)


Got contacted by the buyer that the product was recieved and that some of the games where not reading. 


I responded saying that it could be a problem with the reader lense and suggested cleaning the lense or doing a reset of the disc reader lense with a link to a guide. (Console never had this done before so could have resolved the read disc error)


Got back saying they didnt want to make it worse (assuming they never opened the console or cleaned the lense) and requested a refund.


So before i decided to request the refund i asked for the info of all the discs that where not reading, image of which one are reading and proof. 


Got a response saying that one set of the buzzers aren't working along with the discs.


And later then got a response saying what discs where not working, that a set of buzzers aint working, a usb isnt working and that i had the eye toy pluged into the none working usb port (no photos had any additions plugged in during the listing) and questioned why a guitar hero mic was in it and not a kareoke mic that i had listed (was added at a later date with no cost increase) but thought due to it being a guitar hero mic they thought thatw as the fault with it. 


Now i could he wrong and the console deteriorated during the original post and the purchase of the item.


So it felt off as the refund request came in saying it was not working as hoped and discs not reading or taking long loading times. Then came the response of oh this is not working and then the list of faults along with a fault that i never had with the console since it use and that was the disc tray getting stuck. I have had many consoles, xbox 1(like the first one) the PS2 , xbox 360 and the xbox one. Ony the 360 was the one with disc tray issues.


So ya, currently not havin positive effects with ebay. Anyway if i get it returned and the device isnt working as it left, addditions have been changed or games been swapped out.
