My problem is with eBay. I sold a Gerber printer recently in good working order and specified Local Pickup Only. The buyer is halfway across the US from my location and had UPS do the pickup as her agent. She then ran it and got poor results using materials which were not recommended for this printer by the manufacturer as well as most likely out of date. She next filed for a refund with eBay and ignored all help we offered. eBay gave her her purchase price back and agreed not to levy any additional charges. Now over my screaming objections in the name of buyer satisfaction they are billing my account for shipping charges amounting to more than 25% of the selling price. So I not only lose the sale, but am going to be losing about $300 in freight charges I never agreed to be responsible for.
