The clue is in the term secondhand,secondhand means used which = wear and tear with use.I hardly call two small tears that don't detract from the use or performance to be something worthy of refund claims IMO.
Please don’t get upset, comments are here to help you.
That help doesn't extend to being called a liar by someone on this thread,which casts untruthful aspersions upon my character.
....... Some sellers are not honest and I’ve had to pursue claims against them, but in my experience the vast majority of sellers and buyers are good folk. Some purchasers have unrealistic expectations and so I try to be very careful with descriptions and, as best I can, point out in detail any faults. Some purchasers are also con artists, but by putting the correct measures in place you can mostly protect yourself from them
I totally agree.
Some second hand items are as new and some purchasers expect all second hand items to be as new and still cost them next to nothing to buy,
That seems to be the case in this instance.
some purchasers don’t have realistic expectations and as a seller it’s in your best interest to manage expectations
TBH I sincerely thought I had in describing the item as used and in good condition rather than very
In this case you knew of the tears and it would have been best if you had let the buyer know of them. I agree with you about the buyer’s expectations being unrealistic, but in my experience it’s always better to let the buyer make what they feel to be a fully informed purchase - something that is trivial or unimportant to you might be the reverse for somebody else
The tears,small as they were and in such a place as not to snag on any contents,seemed not worth a mention,but I take your point and as I posted,it was more of an oversight on my part than anything,and IMHO comes under unreasonable expectations.
It was the downright dishonesty of claiming the straps were 'cut short' that incensed me,especially when I know 100% they weren't but because the bag wasn't in my possession any longer and the buyer may have been in possession of a pair of scissors I can't prove otherwise.
For what it’s worth if you had an item for sale that I wanted then there would be no question in my mind about you being an honest seller, if the price was right (for me) then I’d be contacting you and then sending you my money. Your buyer got what most folk would regard as a bargain.
Thanks,even if I say so myself,you'd be correct in that assumption.
