thought i'd tell a quick positive story about ebay for a change
i've been looking for some 9speed ergolevers for a while, but unfortunately mid range 9speed seem to be rare, so when i won some athena 9speed levers for £39 i was really chuffed. i was initially concerned that they were 8 speed but there was a question asking just that and the seller answered that they were 9 speed.
i recieved them this morning . . . . 8speed
hmm . . . . what to do?
phoned a few people . . . . basically expensive and alot of hassle to convert them to 9 speed
the thoughts of a dispute or less than 100% feedback loomed. let alone getting back the money
contacted the seller saying "i realise this is hassle for you etc" and "i bought them as they were 9speed" and " they were a project finishing part" etc, was being as polite as possible
got a message back about 20mins later, no problem, will refund my paypal, and an apology for the incorrect information.
goes to show there are good ebayers outhere, and this was one person not a shop or power seller etc.
thought i'd post this as a ying to all the negative ebay yangs.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
