Yep unless its something that affects their bottom line they could give a rats azz. The only satisfaction here is the seller is still going to get dinged for about $70 in sellers fees. Since you have to have a linked account they'll just take their money straight out of his account.
Not quite sure how that works. Guy is a new seller with no feedback. Sorry. He does now! With E-bay managing payments they require an bank amount with minimum balance of money to sell. In this case buyer is fortunate to get his money back. If the seller said the item was lost or damaged and can't ship maybe he doesn't lose any fees. Then he "finds" or "fixes" the item and relists!
