    Happened to me too. I was midway through booking couriers and then suddenly about 20 minutes ago all my sold listings disappeared. Still not back yet.

    I very rarely leave bad feedback even if a sale falls through but sometimes when I have a particularly bad experience I do leave a red face. The reason I rarely leave bad feedback is because I dont want to deal with getting retaliatory feedback. Someone who has a feedback score of 57% bought 13 items from me and I emailed them three times over 2+ weeks, no response. Because this person already had so many red face feedbacks from other sellers saying this buyer buys stuff and doesn't follow through, and the fact it was 13 items which is a pain to go through each one to request a success fee ...

    After I put “I don’t do bundle deals or accept offers” in my bio I have significantly decreased the amount of low ball offers I get. But today I got one so ridiculous I wasn’t sure if the person was serious or not. They wanted to buy four items from me and offered me $10 each + wanted free shipping… the items in question are three $39 items + one $45 item. So they were basically asking if they could buy $162 worth of items for $40. My profit margin is 20% on the majority of my items.. so it’s quite insulting getting offers like this. Luckily the $45 item sold to someone else shortly after I...

    Thanks S and Simom, luckily the buyer was very understanding and we were able to sort it out. Someone was able to go to the address and collect the parcel.

    a buyer bought 2 items from me and a different address was sent for each of the two items which I didn't realise at the time. The buyer emailed me and asked if I would combine postage and added the address below in their email. Normally when someone adds an address to send the items to in their email I will quickly check on trade me to see if the address matches, if it doesn't I add a note next to the listing to remind myself that when I book the courier pick up to change the address. Now unfortunately I had opened the listing where the address was in fact the same as the one they mentioned...

    Thanks S. I’ve added them to my black list now, I’ll use live chat tomorrow to take their 4 rude comments off my listings. Truely shocking behaviour

    I was in a bidding war with two people this evening. I ended up winning the auction. No issue with the seller at all, they’re someone I’ve bought from many times before.. instead it was one of the other bidders who spammed such rude comments on my own auctions Q and A section. All because I (and one other person) was bidding against them. What makes it worse is I recognised their username, I’ve traded with them before a few months ago (trade went fine.) I just don’t understand why people are like this. This is certainly not the first time I’ve come across people abusing the Q and A feature ...

    I dont understand why some people get upset over someone bidding on an auction with the intent to resell the goods. Thats what I do, its my full time living to sell on trade me using this method. I buy items in bulk, clean them, (many times the arrives arrive in bad condition, yuck!) Research how much each individual item is worth, take photos and list on trade me. I do this 8 hours a day, every day as im a disabled woman who has to work from home. I recently came across another resellers trade me page - one of their feedbacks was from a seller who was angry that the buyer bought the goods ...

    This does happen from time to time - I usually blacklist so I dont have to deal with trolls. Most commonly its "questions" stating things like "overpriced' or people making insulting offers. Had someone offer to buy 800 of my listings as they wanted the entire collection of certain figurines I sell. Yes, 800 items! The figures are $15 + each, a competitive price and they're my best sellers so I dont accept offers for them. The buyer offered me an insulting $500 for the whole lot. Wouldn't even come close to the amount I paid for them. People like this I try to avoid. I didn't answer their o...

    Hi I sold an item on November 5th. On Tuesday 8th November I email the buyer to ask when payment will be made, they email back and say they have just sent the payment and their delivery address. I say thank you and post the item the same day - trusting the buyer made payment. I always try to get items posted ASAP, and have posted items before the money has shown in my account, never had an issue as most people are honest. I check my bank account that evening - no money. I check it the next day - still nothing. I check my account today, nothing. I triple check, going through every single pay...
