I want to take a moment to welcome again our many new members to the conversation forums that we have gained recently.

As an eBay seller, you will have had your fair share of slow, late or non paying eBayers. We get them all the time. This article deals with how to deal with them.

Another eBay miscreant to write up here for the benefit of Google.  This one takes non-paying to a new level by not only not paying, but making excuses as well and then costing you money!

The name to block is 2009kclarke which is a user name with only nine feedbacks (need I say more?). His name is Kenneth J Clarke, he lives at 21 Tinagel Place, Berryhill, Stoke on Trent, ST2 0AP.  His number is 07933 538 604. His email address is:

Here is the gag he pulled on us: He bid on a listing then completed checkout electing to pay by “credit cards”.… Click here to continue reading this article
