Heres the breakdown. I sold an Ipod cable to a member on here that was brand new. Heres the original ad: http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=267637

Now the guy receives it and sends me a message saying the cable doesnt work. I know it works with the receivers its made for...so i do a little searching and see one of the guys previous posts and he says he has the Pioneer AVIC-N2. So, I look up the cable and see if its compatable with this unit and it is not. Here: Compatibility: This adapter is for use with iPod and iPod nano. The CDI200 iPod Direct Cable is compatible with Pioneer in-dash player models AVIC-D3, AVH-P5700DVD, DEH-P4900IB, DEH-P5900IB, and DEH-P790BT.

Now I clearly stated in the ad title the model number of the cable and I feel like the buyer should KNOW or at least try to find out if it is compatible with his unit before he buys it. He even got it for $15 shipped, $5 less than what i was asking for it. IF he was unsure whether or not the cable would work with his unit, he should've asked me or checked himself.

So I offer to refund his money, minus my shipping and cost of packaging, and PP fees since the money was already transferred to my bank account. Once i receive it back.

Is this fair? Or is it his fault and he needs to READ or ASK before he buys. If the cable was defective then i could see saying the cable "doesnt work", and would promptly refund his money. But if YOU didnt check to see if it was compatible FIRST, then thats your fault.

I've sold over $4k worth of stuff on here with NO NEGATIVE FEEDBACK>>>> this just irks me I guess that this guy says it doesnt work.....TELL THE TRUTH< YOU WERE LAZY AND DIDNT CHECK TO SEE IF THE CABLE WAS COMPATIBILE BEFORE YOU BOUGHT IT!

i would not feel like i have to refund it because an uneducated purchase was made...

but, i would try to reconcile with the guy. tell him whats up, and that perhaps a bit more research should have been in order before his purchase, and then work out a deal to buy it back.

you should not be out any money in the deal, but just tell him that if he mails it back to you, you will refund his money (minus original shipping, which i think is fair). you just dont want that bad karma laying over you, might as well do whats right as best you can.

That is 100&#37; his fault. It is not your problem. He made the mistake, so he has to deal with it, and apparently he wants to ***** about it. But if you're really nice you can give him a refund that comes at no cost to you and then just resell the cord, assuming it is not damaged now.

I agree, but since i am a good guy i offered to refund his money, minus the shipping, PP fees and ONLY when i receive it back and its in working order. I've never had a PP claim filed against me in 5 years on Ebay....can he file one because he says "it doesnt work"? when really it doesnt work with HIS UNIT?

If that is the one that uses the Pioneer IP Buss cable and he isn't getting no sound and everything else works...He needs to swap the blue and black IP buss cable around......If not I'd have to know more about it....

I'm just sick of all these buyers who don't know **** and make it seem like its your fault. I already refunded one guys money this week who "changed his mind" after almost 5 days.... I REALLY DON'T wanna sell **** on here anymore. At least on ebay, its a binding contract....no "oh i changed my mind" or "i didnt know" I get sick of that ****.

Ok I was thinking the older ones that used the Pioneer Box...There is no wrong way to hook that one up....He probally bought it for the wrong CD player like you said

I went back and checked all the PMs from him and not ONCE did he ask if it would work with his N2.....or for any of the Pioneer/Premier models either.

It's not your fault, but I don't know if it's worth the hassle he might cause you with paypal. I'd probably just take it back and refund him the $15 and be done with it.

ttt works with any newer Pioneer/premier receiver....


Actually, after reading this I'd definately just refund his money including all shipping.

i'm definitely not refunding his shipping and be out money out of my pocket...you got me ****ed up homeboy. I am not taking a loss on this. The ad said CDI200 Pioneer Ipod cable.....he shouldve known. so take your opinion and stick it up your ***. I AM NOT LOSING MONEY. Feg!!:verymad:

I think you need to relax.

You put it works with newer Pioneer units. You should have either not said this, or listed the specific models it works for.

If it was me, I wouldn't refund. I'm a very understanding and ethical person but if you can't read, that's your own fault. No one on here wants a transaction to be anything less than perfect because people will just post "scammer" and there goes your reputation. But IMO, this is not a store, this is private trading, so how can there be a refund when there is no policy to say so? Being fair is a way to make money. But why pay for another person's mistake?

Why give him a refund at all? He messed up. You never said refunds allowed if you can't read. You never said if you don't like it send it back and I'll refund your money. You said you had a specific item for sale and he bought it. Done deal. If doesn't want it he can sell it.

It would be like me buying a Dual 4 ohm sub for my 1 ohm amp and then asking for a refund because I didn't know it wouldn't work best.

You are both wrong, Him for not looking up if the cable was compatible and you for saying it works with all 'newer' Pioneer headunits..

If he wants a refund just refund him minus shipping and quit being a whiney little ***** about it..

all he was looking for was a confirmation that he was right. any oppinion opposing him is clearly coming from an idiot.

It's great how these feedback threads tend to backfire on people. Even though he'll just cuss, call people names, use some angry emoticons and say he doesn't care I'd say the op has lost several future potential sales over $5 or so. Good job man.

it really is both of your faults.if you would have said works with most newer pioneers then that would have made it more clear for him to check. some people see that you saiud all so figured that the seller knows what he is selling so they dont need to check

was this thread really necessary? I messed up by not checking the info on the cable i assumed it worked with all pioneers. Its gonna work for me after all, getting my avh5700 from repair this week.

I don't think it was necessary. Yes you should have checked but a big deal was made of nothing here. You can't trust everyone.

you guys are right it is partly my fault for saying that it works with all newer Pioneer/Premier units.....I said from the get go I would give him a refund minus shipping. I was a little bit irate yesterday and may have jumped the gun, but when a guy send me a message saying the cable doesnt work. i tried it with 3 units, and then just logs off seeing I am on....it just pissed me off and I wanted to vent a little. MY BAD! I came home last night in a bad mood, been to a party and saw more responses to my post and the drunk fingers took over....

op should ***** slap the purchasers mom, and probably ask for more money just because of his stupidity. stupid people buying stuff for "newer" models. people should understand that "newer" means less than brand brand new.
