I bid for and won a figure at a very low price, knowing that the shipping was expensive, before paying for the item I sent the seller a PM asking why shipping took 13-15 days instead of Registered Mail postage 3-5 days. ( He`s just 120 miles away) His reply
sorry but i can't find this figure. i have a photo list on the
computer of items i have for ebay, i must have sold it earlier and
forgot to delete it. there are a number of other items that i can't
His feedback WAS 100% for over 800 transactions, I thought he was bonafide. ...NOT.... upon closer inspection he`d only sold 2 items this year, and the detailed feedback for the previous years showed he`d did this before i.e LOST the item as well as many complaints of extremely slow shipping despite exagerated postage costs and passing off reproduction for real,
I suppose my question is surely there must be a more efficient way of conveying the integrity of a seller other than trailing through pages of feedback as score of 100% means nothing!
Sorry for the rant
