Re: HELP Buyer refuses to pay customs fees now a Paypal dispute

I’ll have to do that next time. I woke up this morning with no notifications from paypal but a positive feedback from the buyer apologizing for the transaction. I went to paypal and sure enough, the case was closed in his favor.

You win some, you lose some... At least I didn’t receive any negative feedback. Situations like this sure do leave you with a sour taste in the mouth though.
Yes, it does. :cry:

HOWEVER, that positive feedback could still be hiding a problem. Wait a couple of days to check your seller dashboard to see if your buyer left you a positive feedback, but hit your DSRs. If so, you'll need to call eBay since it's against policy for a buyer to leave positive feedback/low star ratings (low stars meaning 1 or 2 stars).

Ebay's been cleaning house on buyers with bad star ratings. Unfortunately, there have been many decent sellers caught in the mix.

Thanks for the heads up. It looks like he gave me 5 stars across the board. My DSR went up 1 number and the stars are still sitting at an almost solid 5.

Thanks again for all the advice, I really do appreciate it.
