Sorry, this is pretty long but I have to share ... I've been buying and selling on eBay since 1999, and I have to say that people are getting harder and harder to work with these days! I have been paring down my handbag collection to make room for new and I have had so many troublesome buyers. More so now than ever before. Usually I only run into problems right before the holidays (that's when I have the most non-paying bidders) but it's really bad right now. Here's what I've had to deal with in the last 2 weeks: 1. I was completely insulted by a "buy it now" offer from a potential bidder for my Fendi medium sized B Bag. She offered me $200! I wrote her back and asked her to kindly not insult me. Finally, I got a legit buyer who paid $800, but I still took a pretty big loss on that one. 2. I have a zero feedback buyer, who won my $100 Fendi baguette, and who has never responded. She was the only bidder so I can't offer it to anyone else. 3. After the auction ended for my $199 green Luella Bartley, someone emailed me and asked if I would accept $150. I said sure. Then she asked if I would wait a week so she could bid on another one of my bags. I reluctantly said OK. Not only did she not bid on the other bag like she said she would, but she wanted to drop the price for the green bag another $25. I said no, we agreed to $150. No response from her. I sent her an invoice but I doubt she'll pay. 4. Last night I sold an LV Speedy. I received this email from the buyer after the auction ended: I can pick up the bag from you place sometime next weekend. How about you withdraw from eBay, and give me a better price? I can pay you cash in person. That way you can save shipping, eBay charge and Paypal charge. I mean you can just pass the saving to both of us. Since we are so close by, I really don't want to pay so much to them. Hope you can consider. Thank you very much. Umm ... hello, the auction ended! I cannot withdraw the auction nor am I going to give you a cheaper price! You pay what you bid! It's already less than the retail price that she would pay in the boutique! So now she wants me to wait another week for the money plus she wants a better deal? I emailed her politely back and said no, you have to pay the price you bid and I cannot withdraw the auction because it ended. What is up with people these days? Usually I have little or no drama on eBay. Now it all hits at once!
