Alright seriously.

I had a buyer buy a shirt from me for $5.74 [Not much I know!] In the auction, I CLEARLY state CONFIRMED ADDRESSES ONLY.

So I get on ebay today to see that my shirt has sold. The buyer sends me a msg saying "You're pp wont let me pay with an unconfirmed addy. please change it."

WTF??!!!!:cursing: Thats why it said what it said.

I can not believe how stupid people are. honestly. Its like, NO I WILL NOT CHANGE IT FOR YOU!

What should I do? Just let her pay or make her send MO? I hate to wait for a MO for $5.74 [well plus shipping!]!!!! UGH! :tdown:

Depends on how important this is to you. If you waver, you might as well ditch that policy altogether.

75% of my ebay sales over past 5 yrs are to unconfirmed addresses all over the world, I never had a problem. Problems arose only from buyers with US confirmed addresses.

Because the item is so cheap I don't think you should have a problem. Try telling her that because her address in unconfirmed you have to charge extra for signature confirmation.

I just accepted the payment. All I ever want is a smooth transaction, and true, its not that much, so hopefully it wont bite me in the arse.

I had an auction end earlier and the person didnt read the full auction. She only had 7 fb and I require a msg with 10 or less positive fb. I mean dont people read? Jeez. Its simple things that can be avoided. Thanks for letting me vent.

sometimes we just need to vent ;). She probably isn't too aware of these stipulations as she is relatively new....But it is annoying when people dont follow directions:mad:

I think I would let it go as it is a small amount. But I would let this person know this is a one time exception and they should confirm their address for future purchases, its easy, takes litle time and saves everyone a lot of hassle.

You have been very very lucky!! Unless it's very little money or worth very little to me, I can't imagine. I've not had any problems selling with charge backs etc, but that's only because I go with ALL of the bells and whistles for my protection. I'd inevitably get the nuts and scammers.

I agree with chipmunk. Most of my buyers are unconfirmed addresses I just confirm the address with them before sending out their item.
