eBay Seller Tips! Avoid Scams and Remove Negative Feedback!

In this guide, we’ll review some eBay seller tips regarding scams and getting negative feedback removed.

We all know that eBay has a pretty generous buyer satisfaction and return policy. It’s so generous in fact, it typically overrides any pictures or return policy (or disclaimers) a seller may have in their product listing description.

When a buyer is not satisfied with the item you sold them, they are pretty much guaranteed the option of returning the item for a refund. If they are at fault for possibly damaging the item it will not matter. They will most likely return the broken item to you. And eBay will side with them; it’s a bit unbalanced, to say the least.

It’s a perfect system for any buyer who wants to be a bit shady; the seller will lose just about every time. And this protection system has been evolving against the seller for quite some time now.

Circuit City, Opening Stores For a New Generation!

I’m personally looking forward to having the chance to shop at a Circuit City again, once the new stores are open! Circuit City was planning on opening up new stores starting in the summer of 2016, but they have since put that on hold.

Who knows what exactly is going on? According to the latest blog post, on Circuit City’s website, they state “Taking Our Time To Get It Right.”

With Radio Shack and other retailers folding the cards, I can’t blame them for taking their time to get it right! After all, they are competing with Amazon.

Hopefully, I get a new Circuit City popping up in the SF Bay Area soon. As I hear more, I’ll update this blog article to include the exact locations, for now, let’s go back in time for a minute.

Remember Electronic Boutique?

Do you remember shopping at Electronic Boutique back in the 1990’s? They provided a boutique style shopping experience for its customers and use to have a store at the Sun Valley Mall in Concord, Ca. I would frequent that store a lot when I was a teenager and into video games. OH… the good old days!
