  1. I heard somehere that it is a US law that sellers are responsible for whatever they ship.

    what I mean is - if a seller sells something - then ships it and it doesn'tget to the buyer (for any reason) the seller is still responsible to replace that item or give the buyer money back.

    I'm not talking about ebay policy or paypal.

    Anyone heard of this?

    Thanks =)
     
  2. Bump - anyone?
     
  3. The laws pertaining to online ordering vary by state. This is why when you order online sometimes, there will be stipulations for certain states listed, where some states have further laws protecting their consumers than others.
     
  4. I have no idea what the law is but I have heard too that a seller is legally responsible. Regardless if that is true, I think that a seller is morally obligated to be responsible that a customer receive an item that they have paid for. If it was always "buyers beware...you may or may not get this item" I don't think that online shopping would be very popular.

    Just my opinion. :smile:
