Hi friend

Thanks for your reply

I am afraid we will only be able to refund you 40% of the amount you paid for the item

You can see we sell the item,we need to pay for the postage and ebay listing fee and then most expensive the cost of the item itself

We actually don’t make any profits by doing the transaction with you which you can check from the winning price

I know some problems is difficult to avoid,but your bid is effective on ebay and we must be responsible for you

So we dicide to provide you resolution on the problem

I really want to help you as much as i can, but you know i really can’t afford any price much higher than the 40% of the item amount

I hope you can understand

All the best

    Have you tried in ebay’s new Resolution Center? They provide a phone number to call.

    Fight back! Warn all of his other buyers … they need to test and open a Resolution Case within 45 days of their transaction. Give kinhome88 some headache and help shut him down.
