Ebay question dealing with my Engagement ring

So I posted my engagment ring on Ebay to try and sell it, well I ended up getting what it was worth at the jewelry store and I was going to cancel my Ebay thing for it but when I sent to do so it had been sold and closed already.  I have already sold it and haven't been paid by the Ebay buyer so does anyone know what I need to do?  I sent the buyer an email saying it was already sold...  I also said I would ship in the US and he is in Germeny so if it comes down to it then I can use that.  I don't even have to ring anymore and he hasn't paid me so... I also owe a curtain percentage from what I "sold" the ring for but I'm not selling it and not getting paid for it so do I still have to pay that?

The place in which we bought my engagement ring is going out of business and so my warrenty will be voided and I have already had to take it in to get fixed twice so it really wasn't worth keeping.  So I traded it in at a different jewelery store for a different one.

At least he hasn't contacted you so it should work out in your favor.
Why did you sell your engagement ring?   I know you were feeling left out
from his family.  Did you break off the engagement?

K,  I think you're going in the right direction too and I have a weird feeling about the buyer.    I think Ebay used to be safer than it is now - my husband has run across some very slick scams for high dollar precolumbian and roman pottery - and Ebay isn't very quick to pull the items when they're clearly frauds.

Ebay motors is another one to watch out for.  I mean really,  why would some guy in England be the slightest bit interested in buying  a used Honda worth about 3 thousand bucks?  They wouldn't be,  is the thing.

Anyway,  in the future,  K,  watch out on Ebay sales.  If you're selling a rare item that collectors really want,  and they get a good deal from you,  they will come after you  for the item.

Best wishes.   Hope you end up not having to pay your fee.

I emailed him and still haven't heard anything back.  I can't owe him the ring because I don't have it, the diamonds have already been popped out and they have done whatever they do with the gold.  I contacted ebay and they said if he agrees to cancel the sale then I do get my money back and if nothing is said in 8 days then I get my money back but if he doesn't then I still owe and they said that I don't owe him the ring since he is in Germeny and I said I would only ship to the US.

Why would you sell the ring to the store if you already posted it on ebay?  If he's serious about wanting the ring the only thing he'll probably do is leave you negative feedback--which can hurt if you sell alot of things on ebay. Good Luck

If he did pay you (instantly thru PayPal), then you should have already refunded his money. Like I suggested when you posted this in the Maternal forum,(and others here) you need to contact eBay and let them know what is happening and they will direct you what to do. Just curious, where else did you post this question?? I think the people who work for eBay are better equipped for dealing with this than others here. They deal with thousands of similar issues everyday.

RR-Most international bidders do contact sellers before in regards to shipping arrangements, especially before bidding, if they have not made it clear in the listing. I have many potential bidders ask me about shipping to their country. I do not ship Outside the US, so I have not had to deal with that. Plus, you have to remember that many international buyers do not speak very good english if at all. There may be a language barrier there as well.

Hmm,  I missed that first time around.  On second thought,  this purchaser claimed to be in Germany?  I would think before finalizing the offer to buy,  he would have contacted you about the shipping arrangements.  

I wonder what the odds are he was scamming you.

I believe she said she already sent an email to the buyer.

Double ouch.

K,  this is maybe more complicated than this.

My husband does Ebay all the time, and he says it's a binding contract on both sides - you are obligated to sell,  and he's obligated to pay and receive the ring.

Of course,  if  he never contacts you or doesn't actually pursue this,  you're okay.  If he does pursue you,  you owe him the ring for the sale price.

The odds that he will actually sue you over an item like this are very small,  but if it were a bigger item,  or something very rare,  this would get sticky.

And he says you owe Ebay.

I agree with the others that you need to contact Ebay.  But I don't think I'd contact the seller - let him do that.

This is why I don't mess with ebay...too complicated.  You need to contact the customer service at ebay.  I don't think we can give you much answers here.

I believe you will still owe Ebay their percentage because the auction went to the very end and was sold and closed.

Good luck.
