Re: im soooooo mad

I always find it hard on Ebay or anywhere else to figure out how to handle someone who wants a refund or return.

I mean how do I know that she didn't do something to the item on her own to make it not work and then ask for a refund saying "it came like that". Just like on her side she's saying well how do I know that you didn't do something to it and then sell it off as excellent to pawn it off on someone else.

I agree though that with diapers there are MANY reasons why something might not be working and MOST have more to do with fit than anything else.

I operate for my own purchases, I buy almost all used BTW, that if something doesn't work for me it's not necessarily the sellers fault. SO I just deal with it myself.

Personally it's too big of a hassel to go through the whole return refund thing to really deal with it for one diaper. Now that would depend on how much I paid for it.

But really with shipping back and forth etc. it doesn't make it worth it for either seller or buyer you probably end up spending more on shipping than what you paid for the item in the end.

I could see if something had cuts and rips obvious things wrong with it but wicking and leaking are such finicky things that could be caused by so many factors.

Re: im soooooo mad

Sorry, I guess I am just irritated because I have been on the bad end of these diaper problems lately. Seems like every other dipe I get wasn't described right. Not just here but ebay too! I didn't say to automatically refund. I stated to have the Momma check the repelling/stuffin situation first and then base a refund decision on that. Take into consideration the other mommas FeedBack. If you put water in a pockt and hold it so the water is floating by the crotch, you can move the dipe around a bit so the water moves and you can check for PUL problems. I did that for a Fuzzi Bunz that I was checking. You can simply check for repelling too!
It just seems like everyone is saying "don't refund period". That's what it looks like. Now, the FB I just tested and sent out, I would not do a refund on as I personally tested it first!

2Peas14mnsapart- I totally agree with you! I usually keep the dipe! However, a Momma on ebay sold me 6 FBs and 2 Magicalls that were in "EUC". The FBs were all Pooped stained horribly and the Magicalls had cuts in the PUL! Not even usable. I filed for a refund!

I agree for obvious things like that I would also ask for a refund if it wasn't disclosed.

I don't get that did the person not think you were going to notice the poo stains and the rips?? Weird.

Re: im soooooo mad

I would not give a refund for any wicking issues. I've had diapers that wicked when I used them, but not when someone else did. Also, some people leave their babies in the diaper too long and it will wick. You aren't responsible for wicking issues.

As long as it's not opened you should be able to. I wouldn't until I get the other dipe back though just to be on the safe side
