        I wouldn't know, hence the post.
        Am i to deduce from your puerile post that Officeworks are generally excluded from such deals?

      Feel like giving up on eBay now.. waited and waited for a code that works on a phone I bought, I received it and it came completely damaged and shattered through Australia Post. I put up a return request but the seller is trying to claim that this is not their phone even though I'm taking pictures of the box which has the IMEI number they put on the listing.

      I bought one item that I paid through bank transfer and the seller abandoned the site, and all eBay did was tell me to ask the bank for refund. Chances of getting back my $500 is about 1%.

      I bought 2 items worth $1500 and the sellers didn't ship and it has been 2 weeks.

      eBay? More like CrapBay.

        buying on eBay and not paying via PayPal? not protecting yourself properly, unfortunately.

        • -1 vote

          I bought everything I bought that I mentioned above via Paypal except for a $500 item, of which the seller abandoned the site as soon as they received the money of me and 4 other buyers. We're all spread out across the country so can't even meet up and visit a Police station together to report them.

        Looks like you had a bad run, but I fail to see how it’s ebays fault.

          Ebay don't do enough to clean out the filth that seek to cheat people out of their money.

      • +1 vote

        Item 1) You'll get the money for the phone back. Sadly, even if you chose not to have postal insurance, it'll come from the sellers pocket. Ebay categorically side with the buyer (IMHO.. from some personal experience… but google it and you'll see why I think that).

        It's painful as a seller to have someone cheap out on postage by a few dollars and somehow you're supposed to be the one out of pocket.

        It's often hard to do much about it. You can force them to pay extra post by not offering regular, but with Australia post's crazy prices (eg: $2.55 to send a game uninsured, nearly $10 insured though) you actually don't have that option as much as you think.

        Item 2) The bank transfer payment, sadly, is on you. But I think ebay should be able to confirm it wasn't sent which is all your bank needs to reverse the payment.

        Items 3 & 4) If they don't arrive by the specified date (check the listing) you'll get the $1500 of other stuff back too. Yes it is an inconvenience.

        It's a rough experience, but you may in fact get all your $ back yet.

          It's painful as a seller to have someone cheap out on postage by a few dollars and somehow you're supposed to be the one out of pocket.

          Two points. First, if the phone came shattered it's the sellers fault for not packing it securely enough, so of course they should be the one out of pocket. Aus. Post has very clear guidelines about what an package needs to be able to physically withstand in the postal system.

          Secondly, whether the buyer pays for insurance or not, eBay's MBG puts the onus squarely on the seller to ensure the item is delivered and in the condition advertised, so sending something uninsured is always at the seller's risk. If you're smart, you factor the insurance cost into the sell price regardless of whether you're charging an additional fee for it.

          •  

            @dm01: Thanks for this, useful information I can provide to support my case. No doubt eBay will look at the policies involved and the responsibilities of the parties involved.

            •  

              @Mr Bargain Hunter: eBay generally find in favour of the buyer regardless of the facts involved.

              Last week I sold an old Kindle touch of mine that was in perfect working condition. Got a return request from the buyer a couple of days later for the reason 'Doesn't work or defective' but in the message they included the admitted the Kindle was working fine, however they were having issues syncing their book library to it, contradicting their reason for wanting to return it.

              I got onto eBay and pointed this out, and they agreed it was an invalid claim. But they still refunded her! Fortunately they did so from their own pockets and I wasn't penalised in any way, but eBay are all about keeping the buyer happy.

        •  

          1) This woman who sold the iPhone to me is extremely smart, she'll be $560 out of pocket if the return/refund goes ahead so she's trying everything she possibly can, saying her cousin works for Apple and knows that the iPhone can only be identified by some key etc. Luckily, I can just take out the SIM card tray and show that the IMEI of phone matches the IMEI on the box, proving it's the one that she sent. Poor seller though, they can't do much other than get a replacement from Apple for $850, on top of the price she actually paid for it. AusshittyPost will only give max $50 compensation for Regular parcels, and that too after quite a few hurdles.

          2) eBay is not cooperating at all and keep mentioning that this is an external, private sale and it's the bank's responsibility.

          • +1 vote

            @Mr Bargain Hunter: Re: 1) Poor seller? I don't think so - she's packed it inadequately and is now trying to lie about it to avoid taking responsibility - sellers like her are what gives eBay a bad reputation. Best thing that can happen is she loses $560 in the refund (+ return postage which she'll have to cover when you send it back) and she quits using eBay as a result.

            AusshittyPost will only give max $50 compensation for Regular parcels, and that too after quite a few hurdles.

            Aus. Post's T&C's are there for all to see, along with their packing requirements. Don't blame them for the seller's uselessness.

            Re: 2) As soon as you make a purchase using on eBay using a payment method other than PayPal, you step outside the protection of eBay's money back guarantee. Always pay with PayPal…always pay with PayPal…ALWAYS pay with PayPal.

            Forget chasing eBay for this transaction - it's not their problem 'cause you didn't pay with PayPal! Fill out a stat. dec and file a report with the police, then send the details of this to the seller as well as the bank. You might be able to scare them into refunding.

      •  

        May be stating the obvious, I'd normally avoid sellers if:
        1. The seller profile has been created recently (within a month)
        2. 0 feed backs, or 1-2 feedbacks items which they bought(not sold) recently, just to make them look not like newbie profile
        3. Price too good to be true, amazing how many fall for it (one seller with 0 or little feedbacks, suddenly list a new camera trending $1000 for only $500, seriously?)
        Bargain hunter I may be, if I buy a high priced item, just like getting a quote for car repair, I would not necessarily choose the absolute cheapest, unless that seller has a large amount of positive feedbacks.

        •  

          Valid points, though everyone has to start somewhere with their eBay selling profile. I have no hesitation in buying from new users (assuming they don't raise any other red flags with me) and have found that often the best way to gauge a seller is to contact them with a couple of relevant questions about the item and see if and how they respond.

        I bought one item that I paid through bank transfer and the seller abandoned the site, and all eBay did was tell me to ask the bank for refund.

        What exactly would you like eBay to do about that? Track the seller down in person and force them to refund you?

        If you pay via bank transfer over the internet, no matter what site you're using and how long it's been around for, you're asking for trouble.

      Not quite true, I've tested with a $90 item, because it's less than $100 the code isn't displayed.
      I've added two to cart and went to checkout, code works.
      Find an eligible item under $100 is a real pain though as you only find out during checkout.

    Are these eligible items just plus sellers? Kinda annoying having these codes with all these conditions these days.

    •  

      Mate, I think they way it works now is that they aren't specifying the categories it doesn't work in.

      All the items in our store have the discount code work as long as the base price is over $100.

      The normal non-sitewide deals are popular because they stipulate clearly which sellers/categories are included. This coupon is very vague and you can’t find the items it applies to unless you literally open up the details page of an item and check.

      Some people may get lucky and save money… and that’s great. Doesn’t mean the conditions behind this coupon are not ridiculous though.

    Maybe I'm too salty that none of my wanted items have been eligible for the past 3 of these sales, but I think that these eBay "bargains" should be left for sitewide deals or non vague advertisement sales. Leave the individual items that work with this code to promote themselves, otherwise - to me - it's annoying.

      Are they excluding items being sold with a seller promotion (e.g. $1 final value fees on weekend) to limit losses?

      The answer is NO!

      I've listed many items with $1 final value fees and all of $100 or over items are now 10% off.

      So good on you eBay, you are helping the private sellers with these 10% off codes as well.

      I have more chances to sell them now than without any discount codes.

      Keep on coming ebay.

    In the past few days I have read a lots of comments on the ‘eligible items’ and lots of buyers are unsure or confused what is those items? Anyone try ringing up eBay to find out? I did, and even lodged 2 case as a Seller and a Buyer.
    Here is my findings, may give you some idea what eBay is trying to do. (After 10 calls, seems like only one have some idea, the others just tell me sorry they need to find out and get back to me [which never did]):

    The eligible items are based on Seller (not the item itself, this is important). Nothing to do with eBay Plus Sellers with their annual payment, as I raised this question with eBay too and many of them don’t know a thing…(BTW I am still waiting for eBay to gives me an answer to close my case)

    To be under the ‘eligible items’ (which eBay never explain which make this item except saying ‘T&C will be found and replayed in the item listing’…useless), the sellers who sell the item ( not with in those exclude items categories ) Must be one of the Top Rated Seller under eBay.com.au (note: this doesn’t means the Seller has to be a eBay Store or located in Australia, it means in the past 12 months the Seller has sold 100 items to buyers located in Australia with a total of US$2000 [and it’s USD, Not AUD… strange that they do that, but that’s what I confirmed] with 98+% positive feedback.)
    Then the ‘included’ items the seller sell will be an eligible item. (Like Big W, EB Games, and some other bigger players (not in the exception list like Officework, Target… but I feel Woolies/Big W will soon be in that list too) will works with this redemption code)

    So far I tested this on all items under the % off on eligible items promo on different Seller but on same items, and I found this rule above so far works on all items I selected base on the Sellers type. Also note, eBay mobile app might not let you know if the Seller is Top Rated it not and the ‘condition’ doesn’t pop up, but eBay Desktop version most of the time do and much easier to identify those items.

    I hope this explanation helps a lot of eBay shopper and continue to shop at eBay instead of moving to amazon. I used amazon myself, but found they don’t have good site’s deals like eBay, although I must admit amazon got good customer service, as if I bought a product and 2 days later it was on discount, I rang them up, they will just give me a part of the refund for the new price (that’s awesome, which I think eBay wouldn’t ever be able to), as well as amazon regularly update their price to match other online sites… Anyway, I do love shopping both online, but more on eBay still.

    Sorry for the Long message on the explanations. Just want to help with all the online shoppers in Australia! So far it works for my 3%, 7% and the 10% off eligible items promo. But I still wants back the old style of site wide promo…

    •  

      I completely understand why eBay is doing discounted codes restricted to sellers tiered at "Above Standard" or "Top Performance"

      New sellers are usually offered with incentives such as free listings.

      When combined with 10% off,discounted eBay gift cards and free listings, eBay lost millions to "professionals" cashing out eBay incentives.

      •  

        Yep! That’s right.
        I also tested on listing am item selling for $70 (in last promotion) on my personal Top Rated account which I usually used to sell stuff like my ‘garage sell’, as also asked my friend to list the same item with same condition selling it on eBay.

        The result?
        The list I am selling got the redemption code displayed.
        My friend ones doesn’t have it on display. We even try entering the code at checkout, nope… it will not work if my friend is the Seller, even though he buys hundreds more than I do with 100% positive feedback.

        Think eBay is trying to stop users to opens up new accounts for listing. Which I sees a lot of Seller is doing, which I see negative feedback on those and sending fakes stuff maybe to rip buyers money off…

    • +2 votes

      I concur with your findings. But you don't need to be a big seller. I have sold some personal camera stuff over the last few months (definitely nowhere near 100 items), and my current listings qualify for the PEARL 10% off.

      •  

        Can someone then explain why I can't find any eligible items from qd_au?
        They are a Top Rated seller, currently with 99.6%
        https://feedback.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&...

        Also, is there a way to filter a search for Top Rated sellers results only? I cannot find it
        The closest I can find is "Sellers with eBay Stores"..

        Desktop version..

        And, I've also found the code working on a seller that has feedback UNDER 98% it's at 96.8% so um yeah

          Even I am confuse now…
          Sorry and thank you for giving the examples of the sellers, I just rang up eBay and complaining about the confusion of the ‘eligible items’.
          Again, they don’t know, and I mention about groups in ozbargain is very frustrated about the recent eligible items discount promotion and they should reads it and get someone to gives us an answer.

          She said is first time she heard of this issue and sorry to hear this. She explained, for them she really don’t know How to qualify the ‘eligible item’ (in point 4 of the promo). But she point to me to a marketing team, which she will leave a message to them for me on how do the code the ‘eligible item’ (which is definitely based on the Seller type under eBay.com.au.), only hope they get back to me or someone from eBay Australia reply on this one…

          For myself I really want to find out, is confusing I know… and eBay isn’t too helpful on customer service as well…

          •  

            @milkyt: No worries. The reason I don't call customer service at most companies is, I don't have the patience and more often than not, you get a different answer every time…

            •  

              @nismo: OK… finally got an answer from the Seller side:
              The Sellers for the eligible items are Targeted and random they said, usually for the big sellers.

              For the Buyer side: Sorry, they don’t have an answer on how to identify an eligible item, but she will definitely reflect my case (with examples of eBay items and sellers) to Marketing Team. As I was showing frustration and tell them about all the negative this is impacting eBay.

              If eBay is wise, they will definitely look into my case as well as other cases I raised. People in this forum can raise negative cases to them as a Buyer, I think eBay May go back to the old promotion style… Stiewide all the time…

      •  

        I agree. I've seen many small sellers (less than 50 feedback) that are eligible for these promos. It seems to me to be completely random…

        • +2 votes

          I understands now the promo is not based on feedback, but on ‘transactions’. This is because they might have done 200 transactions but only 50 feedbacks was left by the buyers. (This was explained to me by eBay)

          And also eBay do not show negative feedback on eBay.com.au only, a buyer might be from France and left a negative feedback, but might still be 100% feedback from the Australian buyers under eBay.com.au. The feedbacks shows under the Seller is based around the world, but the promo is only for buyers under eBay.com.au.

          Understands this is very complicated, as seems like only the Seller Hub on the Seller’s Account have those information from the newly Seller Hub from eBay… and only the people
          Coding the marketing promo knows the formula…
          (Maybe I should find a job in eBay Australia and gives all the buyers an answer…. and make eBay Better…)
