How often have we heard that excuse from a reluctant buyer and how often do we disbelieve the excuse? I know I’ve often taken it with a pinch of salt, but it can and does happen.
Well today I was talking to a friend who told me about her shoe buying experience on eBay. Whilst searching for a pair of shoes she stepped away from her computer to make a cup of tea. Literally just minutes later she returned to discover her seven year old daughter clicking away on eBay. Not only had she been happily buying shoes (no fewer than fifteen Buy It Now listings) but they were all the wrong size for her long suffering mother!
Well a lot of explanatory emails to a whole bunch of sellers with promises of paying listing fees and mutually withdrawing from the transactions later it’s a lesson learnt, if you step away from your computer LOG OUT of eBay.
I can just imagine the poor sellers, at the busiest time of the year, groaning as they read the apologetic emails. That’s one seven year old daughter in a whole heap of trouble!
