It's a sad world...
You can’t and there’s no point of reporting non paying buyers that request a cancel. That’s for people that buy it then never pay or get in contact at all
@baseball21. More hassle than it is worth. @PaddyB There are others who would disagree with you regarding account suspension. eBay has adopted a stronger attitude of supporting Buyers, after all, without the Buyer, they wouldn't have a business. Suspension of an account would require blatant and numerous buy/cancellations.
Very true but unfortunately for at least small sellers one thing they seemed to have missed is without sellers there are no buyers. It is what it is though
allowing sellers to leave negative or neutral feedback for buyers. I learned about this when someone tried to scam me out of a very expensive camera I'd listed for a friend. Completely soured me on selling there for many years.
As a buyer, I have run into this situation a few times. The reasons have varied, but, in general, if the seller is at all reputable, he/she is going to honor your request to cancel your purchase for you. At the point that the seller does this, there really is no reason for either the seller or buyer to give feedback. In one instance, though, I had a seller notify me that the coin he had to send me was NOT the coin he advertised. After receiving his message, I immediately asked him to cancel the sale and refund the payment I had already made. To be specific, the coin in question was an 1889-S Morgan that I won for just under $200. What he notified he would be sending was a Philadelphia mint coin of the same year, but he did not send any photos. Clearly I was at fault for not examining the photos in his ad close enough, and, clearly, the seller was honest enough to notify me for permission to send this substitute coin. What follows, though, is one for Ripley. He refused to refund my money, saying that he needed it to pay a bill. He asked me to wait a month for him to return my money. When I replied that I wanted my money back immediately, he posted negative feedback for me. I did NOT retaliate, I just told him that I would approach this from another angle and contacted my credit card company. I had my money back in a few days.
A friend sold a 14 K Italian rose gold bracelet (7 in.) and listed multiple photos showing the exact color of the item. Bottomline, "The bracelet is not shiny yellow gold and I want my money back." She filed a "case" and eBay returned her money carte blanche, before the seller could respond.
Wow, the nerve of some people!
This is what I do. I have sold a few things on ebay. A few weeks ago, I had a run of people winning an auction and NEVER paying or even responding to a message (3 sales in a row). After 48 hours I cancel the order, add them to the block list, and re-list. So annoying.
As mentioned earlier, do your homework before buying something, but if you feel it was an erroneous charge, contact your credit card company. They have a lot more leverage than a single person.
Another avenue would be to send them a message asking why they cancelled and see what happens.
Since you brought up CC purchases in general, I just want to say for the record that there ought to be a law AGAINST automatic renewals (for things renewable, of course) unless specifically requested by the buyer/subscriber. I don't buy/subscribe to anything that has (requires) "for your convenience" auto-renewals until you (forget to remember to) cancel. That's all...thanks.
Try to think of other collectors. Seems like you giving them short end of stick.
