Concerns with selling GTX 480 on eBay. - Page 3

post #21 of 41
I would just make it so you have to have atleast 5 positive feedback. Also take lots of pictures, and possibly make a black mark on the back of the card so no one will send you a different card.

Ugh, I have the unpleasant experience of buying video cards on eBay. A few years ago, I was interested in buying an EVGA GTX 285 from a seller for $200. After 20 days, nothing has been sent at all. I had to file a dispute and I won, but guess what the seller ran off with my money due to all the negative feedback and PayPal was unable to recover my funds.

I had to file a chargeback with the credit card company to get my money back. Of course, the seller had low feedback and went into negative territory after I filed a dispute against the seller. I would be weary of bidding on video cards from eBay unless the seller has great feedback and the most recent ones are positive.

Do NOT sell it on eBay. You had this happen to you once already, don't throw $300+ (possibly $400 for the AMP! edition) away. It has happened to me recently, and I took every precaution possible and still lost. NEVER SELL ANYTHING OF GREAT VALUE ON EBAY!!! THE SELLER WILL ALMOST ALWAYS LOSE!!!

No matter how cunning, careful, and smart you are, you can not beat a flawed system, except in your very, very, very rare case.

I was wronged by someone with 300+ buying feedback, so even setting restrictions won't always help you, especially not with the current bull **** system.

Edit: just saw your YT video...EXACTLY how I do it.
Yeah, it was funny. When I was talking to the eBay dispute supervisor he told me the video was silly and irrelevant and he said the same thing about the serial numbers. In fact, at first he claimed he didn't know what serial numbers were! It was not until I mentioned that I had consulted a legal expert and that my evidence would hold up in small claims court and that his conversation with me might be important for that proceeding that he suddenly had a change of heart and granted an appeal.

Never thought about consulting a legal expert and using evidence against eBay and PayPal. I should think of that sooner than later. Was that supervisor an idiot for not knowing what serial numbers are? I would be better off buying video cards on forums and probably Craigslist.

Yeah, the totally reversed the system since then.

1. Sellers can no longer leave negative feedback.

2. Buyers can now start at dispute through eBay and get their money back by simply sending "something" back with a tracking number. It could be a dead cat or manure. It does not have to be what was paid for.

3. To reach the eBay dispute resolutions department a seller will have to wait on hold indefinitely and will usually be routed to the wrong department each time.

I wish none of this were true. I really do.

Unfortunately, I am inclined to agree with you. I've heard nothing in this thread so far to encourage me to sell something THIS VALUABLE on eBay.

The supervisor I spoke initially refused to look at the photos of the serial numbers. It wasn't until I mentioned "small claims" that he began to cooperate.

Also, usually when I called the dispute resolutions department I asked to speak to the supervisor. Instead I was sent to "customer service" and they told me they were the dispute resolutions department and that I had no case. This would force me to call back and try yet again.

I see what the user above is saying, but it is really not that easy.

Marking the card is actually a pretty good idea.
