So I ordered a GB boy colour from one of the many chinese sellers at eBay. I waited 4 weeks to receive it and when it shows up it's actually the GB boy classic (the crappy B&W one). I contact the seller telling him he sent the wrong item so please advise (btw the listing indicates buyer pays for shipping back). He proposed to refund me half the price and keep the item, he cited a supplier mishap as the culprit. I stated that he has to refund fully and that if he wants the wrong item back he should be paying the cost of shipping as they confirmed it's their mistakes. Well I receive a "order cancel" notification from eBay and obviously a full refund so why do I even open a thread? It turns out that I cannot leave any feedback to the seller as "order cancelled" literally reverts the transaction as if it never happened (I can't even see it in my purchase history). Does this little trick opens the door to sellers to "hide" some of their misdeeds? The only part that upset me a little was the "offer" to buy the wrong item at basically half price of the wanted item ..... which makes no sense to me, it seems more of a way to push unwanted inventory around at a discount, I can't even know for sure if it was done "purposefully" or really a mistake. If he proposed right away a refund I would have left positive feedback anyway, with that intermediate half-assed proposal, not so much anymore! But I won't even have the chance now. What do you think?
