Here I have two lots of depression glass, both purchased from one seller. One green (not sure of this unusual pattern), and one pink. I had just missed the auctions on these last week. I contacted the seller within moments of the auctions ending but they wouldn't do a buy it now at the auctions starting price. So, I watched them list for the third time. The seller replied with a higher buy it now price. I decided to wait 6 more days, until the auction ended once again. I ended up getting them for $0.50 above the starting price. Which helped out towards the steep shipping fees.
The seller sent an invoice a few minutes after the auctions ended. In which they stated... "Payment required in 24 hrs. after sale ends.WITH COMBINED RATE THANKS."
O.o All the depression glass and Pyrex I have purchased off ebay, this is the first time I've had a seller demand payment within 24 hours. They should have to state that in the description, or payment area. I'm not one for leaving negative, or even neutral feedback... but, this seller temps! LoL
So the package arrived filled with broken glass, and the seller left me to deal with it.
I filed a claim online with the USPS.
