I just had to shell out $200 to repair my computer last week.

I used money from my ebay sales to purchase this repair hardware.

This was an absolute HAVE TO repair for business sakes.

Now I have two customers returning items for refunds I don't have.

I am unemployed and count on my sales for groceries and payments for stock previously purchased. I just barely scrape by in the black. Looks like I am going red this week.

Both items are being returned out of "Buyer's Remorse" which means that after they received the items, a watch and a ring, they decided they don't want them. The watch I had listed as returns accepted so that is a given, the ring no but the buyer threatens negative feedback if I wont refund. It was clearly listed as sold as is and no returns accepted. Paypal will give them their money back regardless of the facts so I might as well take the ring back in hopes on not getting a negative feedback.

I don't know where the money will come from. I am virtually giving jewelry away that I am closing out. But October has been the worst month for sales this year, I have only had three and two are being returned.

OMG I can only pray that Christmas shoppers will come through over this coming weekend.



Thanks for allowing me to cry on your shoulders watchfreeks.com members.

I hope your luck turns around soon...I'm an avid ebay shopper & think it's the greatest thing since the advent of central-air.

My little brother owns his own Online outdoor sports business and his business has taken a major hit this year. He has told me that things are starting to pick up over the past few days. Hopefully the same happens for you. I know it's tough. I've had to loan my brother money to keep his business afloat. Good luck to you.

Thanks you guys for allowing this much, I wasn't going to post a link but any and all help is most appreaciated. I don't understand, surely just ONE negative feedback hasn't halted all of my sales.

I really want to thank everyone, but now today, I had just received the watch back from the customer for refund, I was broke. I came to my computer and as if an answer to my prayers, a sale, for almost the whole amount of the refunded watch. Thank you watchfreeks.com member Seattle. You don't really know just how much you saved my butt! God Bless you sir and I am sending you an additional gift for your generosity and for providing me with a sale to help. Now, this evening additional sales have transpired, only awaiting payment for an Invicta Grand Diver and a Swiss Legend Maverick. These two pending sales will net me an additional $400 which will more than cover me and my bills for the rest of the month, God forbid one of these is returned!!!

I know better than to break myself for this very reason, but I got goofey and bought more stock that I felt I couldn't pass on.

I wont do that again.

OK Mr. Watchfreeks.com member Seattle, out of your sense of compassion and generosity, you paid more for the Invicta 45mm Lume Dial automatic from me than you would have elsewhere and I am not unappreciative.



As a minor little reward for your generosity, you have been sent a surprise package of watch and jewelry items with a retail value of around $500. Of course you are aware the retail is highly marked up from wholesale or even re-sale. So don’t be too excited. The green cat’s eye bracelet you requested is among the items.



I don't ask for charity often, in fact nearly never, I suppose my OP was in essence a clandestine plea for assistance and you came to the rescue.



The buyer of the Grand Diver Blue Dial paid, and I sold an older Nice Heavy Invicta Chronograph I have had trying to sell for two years. It sold for $71 at auction. I had it listed over the summer for $39 "Buy It Now" go figure? Still waiting for payment for a Swiss Customer on a Swiss Legend Maverick.



Holiday Sales and frugal budgeting should keep me in the black the rest of the year!

Again Thank you all for your concern and for your prayers. God bless you all!

TR, I have no doubt that you are appreciative and the "gift" was not necessary but is most certainly a great gesture and my wife and I thank you.
We have all been or will be there and God willing there will always be someone to stand behind us.
