Bolshy buyer has ruined my 100 per cent feedback

I clearly stated the condition of the item I sold (we are talking £3.50 here). I posted photographs of the damage and repair to item (a vintage plastic toy).

I was a couple of days late in posting item (terrible personal circumstances), for which I apologised. He then sends me an email saying he's disappointed because I didn't point out the defects. I replied saying I did and also referred him to the photographs of the damage.

Today he's left negative feedback. I have replied asking him why didn't he open a case for 'not as described'. I have also sent a Feedback revision request.

Can I open a case with eBay regarding a buyer who claims 'not as described' in a negative feedback?

If so how do I do it?

i promise I not shouty

no you can't in short. You should have asked him to return for a refund really - there shouldn't be a need for him to open a case at all.

Your best bet is to speak to Ebay on the phone (rather than e-mail) as they may well revise the negative feedback as you were honest originally in the description. It's worth a go.

I've had unfair negative feedback from a very strange customer who hadn't even paid for the item/s, and all feedback was taken off by Ebay.

I asked eBay to remove it via their web chat and they did instantly! The whole negative feedback is gone.

Yes good idea. He came back to me moaning again so I will do that.
