I knew after I read that the seller was taking pictures of the rolling process this would not end well.

filed unpaid item case... am I safe to relist?

*edit - I know unpaid item case can take up to a month to resolve, and I'm fine sitting on item. but figured i'd see what others have experienced in this situation.

I thought eBay liked to give 4 days to pay. halftonegraphics can set me straight if I'm wrong.

Thanks for the new avatar canuck.

Thanks for the new avatar canuck.

you can open an unpaid claim as soon as 48 hours after auction end. buyer is then given 4 days to pay, from opening of the claim.

Update:

eBay authorized the return, now waiting for the seller to give the me return label...

No word from him yet though, eBay said if he doesn't respond they will just close the case in my favour...

Fingers crossed that I can end this soon...



Question: when I pack the print do I take a video of me doing it just in case the guy says I return it with new damage?

It might be a good idea. CYA.

Update:

So seller never responded to provide me a label - in fact, he actually never really responded so eBay closed the case in my favour and will be processing my refund.

Given that I still got the item, eBay advised me to hold onto it for 30 days and arrange with the seller to return the item. Tried contacting the seller and even letting him know that I can pay to return the prints to him but I am getting no response.

The prints are worth quite a lot so I do want to return the prints to him since I don't think it's right to keep the print and the money. Furthermore, the seller recently moved so the address he has on file with eBay is different than the one he texted me (during our transaction).

So the question is:
- Should I just return the prints to the address he provided through private texts and call it a day? Or
- Should I wait out for a response for 30 days and then send him the prints back to his current address if I do not receive any response?

Given the value of the prints, I am a bit nervous in how I should proceed; I want to make sure I got my bases covered and not have the seller come back and say that I stole the prints from him or have him take me to court for something I never did.

Tried getting eBay to fish a return address from him as well and I don't think he is responding to them as well.
