  • Ebay question 564

    im selling a scuffed original led zeppelin album, ive clearly stated its not mint, stated it has scuffs and shown pictures. but people are bidding it up anyway. if i send it the guy will complain its not in good nick and get his money back. so what do i do?

    i sold a badly scuffed and split sleeve version last week clearly stating its knackered.
    normally i bin anything not at least ex. but these are the red and plum ones that collectors want.

    don't spend the cash until the transaction is completely finished?

      i once bought a scuffed version of the Comus 7". i bid it up to £24, the guy sent it and then refunded me £20 as he thought it wasnt worth what i paid.
      i might do something like that. i only wanted 99p for it.

        Some people just want all the Zeps on Red/Plum however busted the record is. If they're willing to pay up for the label then let em? Maybe just email the high bidders again to remind them of the record's condition. Seems ridiculous that one can so easily predict issues arising which can be avoided by people using their brains but yeah, the buyer is the boss so I can see your concern.

              If its Zep One, depends on the colour lettering on the sleeve - turquoise lettering copies selling for stupid money

                I agree. If it;s turquise colour on sleeve, then maybe they want it for the sleeve only, in which case, you can;t know what everyone is interested in it for, so the chances are about 50/50 on any 2 reasons there might be, in which case, if you send message about the disc you could be wasting your time because it might not matter to some people at all.

                  Totally agree, keep hold of the funds until the buyer leaves feedback and only then go out and spend it.

                    I think it would be safe to say that if someone on here was selling a trashed turquoise sleeve, they would probably know what they were doing...

                    What grade did you give the cover and vinyl, out of interest? I've sold some terrible condition records, some people just want the sleeves, some people just want a stop gap copy till they find a mint one. Some people just want it on the shelf and will continue to listen to the CD, but like owning the artefact. Record collectors are just strange people, let's face it...

                      I sold a totally trashed White Album (it even had a chunk out of one of the LPs) suggesting it may be more interest as an art project , the guy who bought was happy. As long as you've clearly described it shouldn't be a problem.

                      I agree, if the buyer moans offer some sort of discount.

                        You can sell a pile of dogshit on eBay. Just don't say it will smell like roses.

                              Everyone has to start somewhere regarding feedback, as long as they don't have 10 positive and 8 negative, see if they cough up first! - you are protected via paypal regarding returns anyway
