And so the whole saga rolls on.The partial refund failed to clear the sellers bank,so I asked Customer Support to rule on the issue.It sort of has,it has been agreed that I will get my money back in full including postage,but only when I return the faulty shifters.To help me with this it has emailed me a prepaid by Ebay parcelforce address label,something I have never heard of before.At least I now have the name and address of the seller and can return the shifters.
The whole thing sucks.I have always been careful to keep my 100% rating on Ebay (youngman8618 if you are interested,check my feedback) but the whole concept of Ebay gets undermined by a few individuals behaviour.I have relied on Ebay for most of the parts I needed to complete my small fleet of three bikes this year,and without it the bikes would have cost a lot more,however I will be more careful in the future and will only deal with sellers with 100% records.
