Ebay is great. When it doesn't suck.

Posted on Sun, Dec 6, 2009 at 9:39 AM

So I'm a frequent seller and occasional buyer on ebay. I swear to god though, about one of every ten people I deal with I with nearly ruin any good that comes from it though. News flash people- I do not set the prices of shipping. That would be Canada Post. Once it leaves my hands, there is NOTHING I can do about it, unless you throw enough cash at me to afford Priority or something like that and I can open a claim. You bitch about the price of shipping, and then bitch when it doesn't reach you at the time you seem to think it should take. Tell me, what is that amount of time based on, anyway? Because here in the real world, it can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, or MORE, especially around the holidays. I do my part, and ship usually the next day, at MOST 2 business days. He bought on Sat, I mailed on Mon, and today I get an email in all caps saying FOR THE PRICE OF SHIPPING I SHOULD HAVE GOT THIS BY NOW. He lives in BC. What really pisses me off about this guy- is that HE is ALSO a seller! He should know better. Dick.
