eBay won't charge you if you've been genuine. I had this recently and even though the item had been returned to me, eBay ruled in my favour and the buyer was not refunded as I hadn't misdescribed the item as she claimed.
Ah I see. Yes another time I won’t do it this way. With this one I think they’ve damaged it and it’s my word against theirs with eBay and I know which way they’ll go. So at least this way I’ve saved the return postage.
