    I understand putting a bin/ offer price a little higher than you're willing to accept/ market, but i almost didn't send an offer on a card because the user was over their skills asking 5-6 times what i thought was a fair price. The seller accepted within 5 minutes...

    Frustrating for sure, but glad you got the item.

    Sometimes sellers will ask for the moon and hope someone buys it at that price. I had the same scenario play out a while back. Seller had a card listed for a high amount, I offered what I thought was fair, and to my surprise the seller accepted almost immediately. In fairness, this card had been listed with a high BIN/BO option for a long time, so maybe they just wanted to sell it already, but still.

    It's always worth sending in an offer just to see what happens. You just never know.

    Edit: Merged Sparty07's original thread in the Show & Tell/Breaks forum with our eBay Issues thread, as it's more appropriate to be placed in here.

    This is an interesting one for me.... has never happened before.

    I bought a card on eBay about a month ago. It had been listed off and on for a year, with an insane BIN. Finally came down to earth, reasonably priced auction. I won it for the opening bid ($10) as I expected. The seller was in Europe, and charged next to nothing for s/h ($1).

    Got the card in the mail yesterday. No issues with timing / shipping / etc. Issue is with the card that was sent:

    With the GU pieces on it, it's clearly the card from the photo - so this was not a bait & switch issue.

    It's a mid-00's ITG card, where cards are not labled "Gold" or "Silver", nor do they have "1 of 10" vs "1 of 40" written on the back. This particular set - the way you tell is there is a bit of lettering on the front (middle) of the card.... the Player's Name, and the Set name.... that are either in Gold or Silver.

    The auction (in the title) very clearly stated "GOLD 1/10".

    The card I got, very clearly, has Silver writing. It's NOT the Gold Version.


    So what am I to do? If I ask for a return - it's going to cost me about $5 to send it back. Normally I'm not against doing something like that (I've done it before, spent upwards of 80% of my refund to send something back - just on principal) but I spent $5, to recoup $6 (net).... and it's card that I probably would have bid on, for the price I paid, anyway.

    At the same time, I'm not happy about being misled as to what card I was getting.

    Notify the seller and see what they say. Does the seller have good feedback rating? Maybe they knew but maybe they thought they had that card by mistake.

    Hopefully can negotiate it out and get partial refund

    If the item is not as described, you open a case and the seller is forced to pay for return shipping and give a refund.

    I would contact the seller and request a partial refund. If you can still use the card but feel that it wasn't what you wanted I think that would be reasonable. Otherwise, open an Item not as Described case and have the seller reimburse you for everything, including return shipping.
