I think the fairings were $51 instead of $514. They fixed the mistake though. I would have attempted to buy them at that price.

Yea, they have to honor it at that price. Ebay ToS FTW!

I actually read this thread last night moments after it was posted, and did actually pull the trigger before the link was fixed. So far I have gotten one email explaining the mistake, and then an additional one offering a discount off the regular price for the inconvenience.

I, of course, am going to pressure them as hard as I can to honor the deal. However, I have experience with this kind of thing, and know that it is easier said than done. They can choose not to accept my payment (I've paid but it is currently in a hold) and try to get a mutual cancellation. The only thing that happens to them if I don't agree is possible account termination. Ebay nor paypal can do anything to force them to ship the fairings to me, and a lawsuit would be irrelevant due to the cost of litigating someone in China.

So BASICALLY, I have to pressure them with threat of negative feedback and starting a claim, and hope that they will just send em at a loss in order to save their rep and the ebay store itself.

Like most sellers I'm sure they have the option to end the listing and refuse your payment. Also, there is no sense in making their life stressful when they apologized and offered you a discount when you took advantage of their honest mistake. Pressuring them to send you the fairings and threatening them by possibly ending their business when they have already earned 100% positive feedback is a total and royal **** head thing to do! Please don't, we need less people like that in this world.

That's how business works.

A typo is an honest mistake, and I made honest use of ebay by purchasing an item at a good price. Business is business. There is a confirmation screen when listing an item's price to make sure things like this don't happen. The seller should have been more careful. I was simply a savvy consumer.

After back and forth arguing, it became clear that the seller was willing to receive negative feedback and/or lose his account for the $450 dollars. So I let it go.

BUT - I do have a standing agreement with the seller for 10% off whenever desired for the inconvenience. So I suppose I did get something out of it.

everyone makes mistakes.... why would you go that far with it

if you put your bike on ebay and missed a zero and someone hit buy it now for $500 would you sell it to them for that? no...

All they have to do is explain the situation to Ebay and they will fix it, your negative feedback will just make you look like a jackass

I would never make a mistake on typing a number critically important to me, and then confirming that number a second time. Obviously the number the seller typed wasn't important enough to double check it. That's business.

If I did somehow make that mistake, I would ask for mercy but would realize it was completely my fault. If the buyer held firm, I would respectfully sell. Live and learn.

So you're going to take a $4500 dollar hit on an honest mistake when selling you're bike if that happened?

I smell a little bit of bull excrement. Not saying you are wrong in this situation, but be happy they gave you the discount option, and not have just said "Eff off".

I am happy that they gave me a discount option. I wasn't really expecting them to sell at that price, I was just hoping they would honor their mistake.

You just can't make mistakes on something that important. People will profit. It's their nature.

LOl I saw this on the new posts page and was thinking OH NO I've been hacked

I accidentally posted something on ebay with free shipping and it was an apx $30 shipping charge. I would have ended up spending money to sell something .. the buyer was nice about it and understood PHEW
