After a quick glance through their feedback I wouldn't have "forgotten" to bid ~ I never would have wanted to in the beginning :crap:

Yea, almost 10k negs in the last year, kinda high, add that with the 11k neutrals...

Thats pretty much a "non happy" customer every 17 items, kinda ****** in my book.

900+ negatives in the last month.
That works out to 30+ per day.
Incredible.

When looking at it purely from his feedback score of <91% it is close to 1 in 10 transactions that goes south.

That is nowhere near my own personal benchmark for me to consider bidding.

Almost never will I bid on someone's item that has <99% positive - and in those exceptions the seller has to have no lower than 98.5% or I still won't bid.
Sure - have I probably missed some really good deals?
Most likely...
Have I thus far *knock on wood* kept from getting screwed on eBay?
Thankfully, yes.

<90.5%?
Pfft - whatever you're selling you may bloody well keep it.

my question is... how did that company get those comps in the first place?

Yeah, when I took into account the seller's feedback, I was sort of second guessing it. But I thought it would be a shame to miss out on a set of speakers that normally cost 639 Euros ($883) http://www.caraudio-store.de/Space,K6,16cm,2-Wege-System,Hertz::::3257::::ad6f22bb.html?osCsid=e259e 9130bf3ce17dd96a450672339e5 .That is, IF they were in new, working condition. Oh well, I'll live.

They sell either freight damaged items or lost freight items. Companies will buy bulk trucks of items that were either lost or damaged by freight companies for pennies on the dollar. They have some decent stuff sometimes. The only good thing I got from them was two brand new Stinger Ultralight rechargable flashlights for $107 shipped. These flashlights are $125 each plus either tax or shipping, depends on where you buy them from. I actually got them for $70ish but after there stupid handling fees and overpriced shipping, it came out to the $125ish (yeah, that's right almost $40 in shipping and handling fees for something very light and somewhat small). That is the part I do not like, the handling fee for every item you buy and the high shipping cost.

Another of those "looks like new" and "we can't test it" and "sold as is" auction deals. You get lucky and it works fine you get a bargain, you get something broken or incomplete you are stuck with it.

Reminds me of a ham-fest story: A vendor was reaching to get something off a high shelf and knocked a radio off and it dropped to the ground. He scooped it up and replaced it on the shelf. My "witness" stopped back by later when someone was interested in the radio and asked the vendor did it work. He said "It worked the last time I plugged it in".

Might be better to go buy a Powerball ticket :)

where do you go to get the lost items from these shipping companies?

Best bet is to go the Local of whatever union the shipper's employees are members. Whenever they get though b!tching about their employer they can sell you the lost items out of their trunks.

One of my friends from high school works as a broker for a freight company around here. So he gets told about shipments just sitting around that no one wants. About a month ago he was able to buy a trailer that Gander Mountain didn't have room for with $25k in fishing/hunting equipment for $4k as long as he found a way to bring the trailer back to the company from Virginia.
