I would like to know if any other members have bought items on Ebay supposedly from a UK supplier. If a problem arises one is given a link to a Chinese site whom originaly are over apologetic and wish to help. This soon seems to fade away and ridiculous terms become introduced for the return of a faulty item, still extremely polite. Getting nowhere after 2wks I said I would rather throw the thing away and buy another from a different source and would explain to others via a negative posting on Ebay. Replacement item delivered next day. Just wondered if any others have had similar expriences.
I have bought from China before and they always arrived OK. I understand though that if goods are faulty then returning them is a problem. Because of this I tend to order things which are not too expensive so that its not too much of a loss if there is a problem.
I'm not sure I understand you - are you saying that we don't have a right to try to recoup some of the considerable costs involved in running the forum - bearing in mind that all we're talking about here is a harmless link?
If you are on the side of the fence that is generating an income it would seem like a fair deal to you. If, however, you are on the other side of the fence it can be a bit of a nuisance, evidenced by the number of readers using adblocking software.
I do appreciate the need for revenue to fund the site but it doesn't mean I have to like it.
