Although I'm usually against "Threadomancy" the raising of old, dead topics from their graves, I've got to add to this one.
I ordered from "Bikeontime" a pair of bar ends.
I pay through Paypal and await.
Now, the Royal Snail's poor, overworked & underpaid souls decide to strike, so I expect that my item will take a tad longer to reach me.
I wait, several weeks and nothing, so I contact the vendor via the eBay "Ask seller a question" link. I get no reply. I then e-mail via the hotmail contact given as the Paypal payment contact, no reply. I start a Paypal item not received complaint, no response, I leave negative feedback and escalate to Paypal dispute, no response but yesterday I do get my refund from Paypal who've found in my favour.
Additionally, the cheeky gits send me a spam e-mail thanking me for being a customer and would like anything else! Did they get a reply to that or what? Needless to say, I got no reply to my reply.
So, you either get your goods or you get nowt.
Looking at their feedback currently http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=bikeontime&ftab=AllFeedback&myworld=true&seeallfeedback=See%20All%20Feedback
it's much the same, complete satisfaction or complete disatisfaction with no response to complaints and money back via Paypal.
I'll now try the other monkies mentioned in this thread & see what happens there
