Angry I'm So Pissed Off I Can't See Straight!

Recent ebay sale......$175.
Shipped the next day, June 9, with a tracking number but the buyer STILL hasn't received the package and USPS shows only that it left our Post Office.
OK......fine........but does the buyer contact ME?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO............... they go to ebay who sided with them without contacting ME, refunded their money and ebay is asking me to reimburse ebay.
Again, fine BUT I called ebay TWICE, explained everything and asked WHEN they actually receive the package how am I supposed to get paid.
Both reps said to send them an ebay invoice.
OK.......still so far so good.
During my second call to ebay I asked if I sent them an invoice and they refused to pay would ebay tap into THEIR account and get back the money I have coming?
NOPE.......NADDA.......so if they choose to not pay for goods received I am screwed out of $175.00........
I told him that is one hell of a business model.
I wrapped it up with "Thanks a lot ebay.......thanks a #^+*ing bunch and hung up.
I have't been THIS PO'd for AGES........ ˛

I am tired of the crap Ebay has pulled and has stopped selling on Ebay. I have a bunch of stuff I want to sell but do not want to deal with their BS.
I feel your pain.

Tell Ebay rep you would have copy paste messages to them from forum board view by millions. They will read it and pass along to manager. I guess ebay employees have no clue what to do just like IRS employees. They get paid on job and sometime don't have time dealing with unhappy customer.
First ask buyer to verify the correct address to ship. There are three settings to change or verify the correct address in system to avoid delay shipping bounce.

I have one item shipped to Pennsylvania. The customer haven't received the package for over a month. I got ship complaint. I reported to ebay with ship confirmation number. Took awhile... Ebay found out the buyer hasn't changed the resident address . His new address is now in Manitoba Canada
USPS ship confirmation was shipped very slow like over a month. Must be lost somehow. The buyer have received it already and told me please disregard it my apologized the error.

Craig here: I only hope I'M that lucky!

Can you get USPS package insurance?
If the USPS cannot deliver it, then they should pay you the value back if they lose it.

I have no experience with USPS insurance, but UPS has paid up a couple of times on damaged stuff they broke.

Our Postmaster is ready to help me any way she can including filing a claim.
That's one of the nice things about living in a small town.

What's NOT nice about living in a small town is you can't get away with anything....... .......

BTW sdowney.......I've always heard getting money of UPS is harder than getting an audience with the pope (well......maybe not the CURRENT pope....... )

Had an issue with epay but more accurately with the seller.

Often sellers will price an item then hoping you'll click and pay they tack n an extremely inflated price for freight. Such was this case.

To find the shipping costs sometimes you have to put it in your cart and proceed to checkout where freight is calculated, in this case it was like 3x normal rate so I just left the page.

A couple weeks later I get a nastygram from epay stating the seller filed a complaint on an item I didn't pay for. Now on the phone, aah yes, I didn't buy it hence of course I didn't pay for it. A couple more calls got it put right and they advised that they suspended the sellers account for pulling this trick.

Yes, getting the USPS to pay up on their mistakes is almost impossible. I think they make it hard thinking the customer, that's us, will just go away.
