WWYD Item not what expected?

I did a trade and the item is more faded and worn than I expected. Mama said one time use, just like new (a couple spots on colored area from what she thought was pen but that was noted previously.) To me it looks far more worn/faded than the item I traded. I specifically asked about fading. What would you do in this situation? What is fair?

Re: WWYD Item not what expected?

did you see pictures ahead of time?

If you are unhappy you should contact the mama you traded with and let her know. How would you like to proceed? do you want to keep the item? trade back?

Re: WWYD Item not what expected?

I don't really want to keep it :/ but I don't want to lose the shipping on sending it back either...... agh I don't know what the best thing to do is....

To be fair it is a carrier and I like the one I still have better. Its not just the condition but regardless of that fact its still not the condition I expected.


Maybe a partial refund would be best. I can just sell this one with an accurate description. How do you determine how much to ask for as a refund due to conditional issues. The difference would be listing a carrier at like new to my listing it as VGUC or GUC. What would you say the depreciation due to the difference in use should be?

Re: WWYD Item not what expected?

i think in that situation i would ask for a partial PP from the other mama

how much did you "pay" for the carrier (basically how much do you think the item you traded was worth) and how much do you think the carrier you received it worth, id figure out the difference and then ask for about that much.

I wouldn't ask for a partial refund since no money was exchanged in the trade. I would either trade back or keep it. I guess in a trade I always expect things that are exchanged have less resell value or they would be asking for paypal.

I dont know I guess I feel like it should be whatever it is said to be. Otherwise the trade value is less and I would not have done the trade. The item I had really was exactly like new. No issues at all. I probably could have just sold it as new, never used at all but since it was put on once I traded like new. When the other person said used once. I expected the same thing.

I would see if the person who I did the trade with offers a solution then. Definitely tell her that the condition wasn't up to par! I would be bummed as well.

Re: WWYD Item not what expected?

Well the person I worked with was great about it and I had not trouble working out a fair deal. It seems like an honest mistake and we all make those sometimes She offered more than I was willing to take from her Glad it was so easy!!! Its nice when you work with such great mamas!
