The book itself and the inner well of the case are unharmed and exactly as they looked in the picture.

Due the the care the seller took to double box the item with plenty of bubble wrap the seller has a winnable case with the post office to cover the cost to repair (re-holder) the damaged case.

To win the case the seller needs at a minimum for the buyer to provide a telephone number. Without this information it is impossible for the seller to file a claim with the post office for any amount.

To win the case the seller also needs the buyer to hold onto the book and the packing materials in case they want to inspect these items. Usually pictures are enough but this is not always the case.

If I understand you correctly, you force a return with Ebay and do nothing to help the seller collect from the post office. Instead of making a profit on the sale the seller has to pay to ship the item to you, to have the item shipped back, and to re-holder the book while giving you a full refund.

The post office was negligent but since you refused to help the seller (you were busy forcing the return through Ebay instead), the post office does not compensate the seller for this negligence leaving the seller out of pocket to re-holder the book before they can relist it for sale.

Your purchase of the item was a contract with the seller involving an offer and an acceptance. By reneging on the offer you caused the buyer to lose the revenue from the sale including the shipping both ways (this is a loss to the seller) and possibly the Ebay fees as well. Your negligence regarding the insurance claim resulted in additional losses for the seller.

Please explain why you don't see a problem with any of this.


My contract or agreement is with the seller to provide a good as described via a purchase on the eBay platform. If the item arrives damaged or different than that shown/described in the listing then the policies of eBay take effect. I'm following the policies of the website that I am using and agree to when I signed-up and when they update them. I'm not under any obligation to help/render assistance to a seller in a dispute over an item damaged by the shipping company. To expect me to render assistance after a seller made me jump through hoops to get a return is asinine.

"Not as described" does not necessarily mean Damaged.

I might suggest you not sell on Ebay. It's clear you don't fully understand a good business model.

"The customer IS always right"

Complete the return with a smile an Move on.

Ive been selling on Ebay for over 10 years and have NEVER had a book returned.

If your experiencing high return rates and requests, I can't help but think its something
your doing on your end.
The fact that you continue to argue the plainly clear facts leads me to believe I probably
wouldn't want to do business with You.

@drchaos You stated "you were busy forcing the return through Ebay instead".

If I'm busy forcing a return, I have gotten to the point in which I had to do that. According to eBay policy I have contacted the seller advising them that the item arrived damage. I explained to them how it was damaged and provided pictures showing them that the item was damaged. I use eBay messages to do this. Why? eBay messages is part of eBay and eBay's representatives can look at the message(s) and see that I had an issue an attempted to correct it in a professional courteous way. I asked for them let me return the item and asked them to advise how they were going to handle the return postage. If they advise that they aren't going to accept the return or that they aren't going to pay for the return postage then I have to start the process of starting a "item not as described" case. The hoops start there. (Most sellers know they can wait 4 or 5 days before authorizing or declining the request). It just involves me spending more time trying to correct an issue that could have been handled under much friendlier terms if the seller had care enough to act professionally.

HaHa Funny you should ask that right now. The wife is off work today and I just asked her what she wanted to do with her day off. A Movie, dinner, visit some relatives, or go to her favorite store (which is in Dayton and an hour and a half drive one way).

She said, "it's raining and I don't want to go anywhere. But it would be a good day to sell some comic books".

I answered her "is there a bad day to sell books?" She said "no".

So I guess I will sell some books today, just because I am bored.

Any particular genre or price range? Anyone? Nothing slabbed, sorry but those stay for now. $1 dollar books? $5.00 books? $10.00 books? $25.00 books?


I come to this forum everyday in hopes of seeing another @conditionfreak sale. The other two were the stuff of legend.


I didn't get any suggestions or desires concerning what types of books or what types of prices. Except for "5, 10 and 25 dollar" books.

So I am pulling books, sort of randomly. from my boxes and they will be either $5, $10 or $25 each. I have a bunch that should only be one dollar each, but those are not worth the trouble to scan. And postage costs so much nowadays.

I will pick a good mix, and start a sales thread tonight or tomorrow. Lots of scanning to do.

I was just resting after eating dinner and my wife asked me "don't you have something to do?" I said "yes dear. I have to feed the chickens and lock them up. Use the bathroom, feed the dog, wash my hands, and chat on the internet. I think that about covers it."

Her reply: "SELL, SELL, SELL".

Ha Ha Talk about being the wind beneath my wings. Ha Ha

If I have to get to the point where I start a case then the seller is going to accept the return and the truthful feedback that goes along with it.

Well, I have all of the Swamp Thing books. But some I won't part with (1, 20, 21). The rest are pretty much just readers.

I'll check on the Iron Man 17. Maybe I do.

TOS 77. Ultimo I think. Don't think I have that one, but maybe. I'll check.

Won't part with Avengers 52. I already pulled a Demon #1. But you probably are looking for a different #1. I have one or two of those also, but I might have sold it in my last sales thread. I'll check.

You are correct. And it is one of the many "representing your brand" rules people should be following.

Besides that, there was a story that happened between 2010-2013 that had an eBay buyer purchase a rare MIB/MISB Japanese toy. According to the story behind the event, he payed good money for it because the product shown was in C-9 condition. The seller, who was either ignorant or lazy, decided to use the packing itself as the means of shipping the product. The buyer ended up getting a mint (C-9 or C-10) toy in a damaged (around C-7 or C-8) box. Which, I believe, resulted in him getting a partial refund.

That, and what you said is similar to my ordeal with an eBay seller. One that I am still awaiting to hear from in regards to me getting my refund since the item did reach its destination.
