| p.2 #2 · sold lens buyers wants to return |
...although I'm inclined to take your side due (mainly) to your B&S history and the other member's lack of history, I will add the following: You are taking advantage of the 'PayPal 45/90 day rule'...you should have done your inspection within 3 days (at most!). Waiting 8 days and then using the the ridiculous 45/90 day clause is completely bogus! So if I buy a lens from you, you'd be prefectly fine (100% no issue) if I wanted to return it to you 45 days after I receive it, right? You wouldn't be bothered and you'll accept the return with a full refund, right...I mean it is (after-all) all proper and legal under the 45 day dispute period that you stated above, right? Hmmm...I wouldn't sell anything to anyone that was going to hold me over the coals for 45 days on a used item...no way! 3 days...that's what I give...that's what you'll get from me...period.
My 2 cents,
While your opinion is appreciated...-paypal does not care what you think... Had the lens failed completely within that 30-50 day period, I'd have kept my options open as well. Protections are there for a reason, and only a fool would not use them when needed.
You're free to have whatever returns period you want specified in your listings, but paypal doesn't care what you want. If a buyer wants a return 20 days later, they will get it. Be stubborn if you wish, but you will lose. As a longtime ebay seller of junk, I know very well that the buyer is pretty much always right. If you want to completely protect your butt in all situations, sell on craigslist, or only accept money orders.
WOW! Unbelievable...well, I'm so glad you very publicly let EVERYONE on this board know that if you buy a lens, camera or anything else on this board, you will keep your "options open" to return the item 30 or 50 days after receipt! Thank goodness for forum options like the 'hide me' buttom so I NEVER accidently do business with you! Buying a used item in a private transaction and holding the seller responsible for 50 days...UNREAL!
My 2 cents...(now where's that 'hide me' button)
