Ebay postal address

Postby Eugene » Wed Apr 19, 2023 3:05 pm

Ordered two sets of planer blades. Received one set.

Address on the package is: RDU, 10660 South Tryone St. #67. Charlotte, NC 28273.

That number, 67, is a storage unit number at that address.

Why would an Ebay seller use a storage unit as the business address?

Complaint filed.

To attempt to avoid accountability. You’ve taken the appropriate action.

Just finished providing my Ebay review of the seller. Negative. Listed the seller's postal address as a storage locker.

Just received Ebay e-mail asking me to send photo of what I received. Told Ebay it was the same as the advertisement except I order two and received one.

I'm thinking it was a warehouse screw up. 2 knives in an set and the order was for two sets.

I need the knives/blades. I'm not going to take the time, effort, and cost to send back a $9.00- set for either a $18- refund or get two sets back.

We will see how this goes. Maybe more negative reviews. Heck, I get really POD'd, SC. Attorney General.

Have ordered many items from Amazon or Ebay with no problems.

Have you tried to contact the seller for resolution? Being charitable to the seller, he could legitimately be storing/shipping from a storage unit. For this to work okay, he would have to be pretty small time. He could be using that location to accept returns. Note that this particular storage unit is not just some sheds with a fence around it. There is an onsite manager.

its not uncommon for business to operate out of a storage facility. We recently found several people living in storage facilities in our area when the on site management was absent.

The bad is that they shorted you a set of planer blades.

I always thought you reached out to the seller first for a discrepancy, but it has been over 20 years since I had dealings with evilbay!

If they are contracted to use unit 67, then the address of such is irreverent! That is their business address the way I see it!

First thing I did was e-mail the seller. I left that out of my first post.

New message from: jinsche (33,435TURQUOISE_SHOOTING_STAR Star)
sorry
we will edit it
how about let us refund you 2 dollar since we only make a dollar. thx

My reply to the seller; No on your $2.00 refund. If I accepted I would be the one losing money. Either refund 1/2 of my payment or send one more set of planer blades.

Edit: If I accepted the $2.00 offer I would then lose $7.??

Used to be a eBay seller and made a little money doing it. Used to buy there, also. Then I attached my bank account to my PayPal account, which made sense at the time. Could just buy and sell via PayPal. Then woke up one morning, went to eat breakfast, and no money in my account. Paypal transferred $1,000 from my bank to my PayPal. And it was three weeks before the money became available to me and I got my money, but that, and something I didn’t like that eBay did, put an end to me, eBay and PayPal.

Never had a problem with eBay or PayPal. Maybe I’m just lucky.

The seller recently changed the price of the planer blades from two sets to one set for the previously advertised price.

Can purchase the same planer blades on Ebay in the $4- to $5- a set, but shippped from China. I chose the seller because he/she was based in and had the parts the USA.

Edit. Working up a complaint to South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Response: Look at your photos and from others selling the same item. It's another set of blades or half my money back. Thank you. More information to add to my complaint to the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs.
