Item not picked up from P.O

Hey ppl,

This person won and paid for a sweater I sold on ebay. I have looked at the tracking info and it has been ready for pick up since last Wednesday Nov. 23 at the post office. I just checked again this morning and it now says: "Final Notice; Item will be returned to sender if not collected within 10 days". I already sent her a message yesterday telling her it's been available for pick up since last wk and I'm waiting for a reply back. I really hope she goes and picks up her item! If the item gets sent back to me, won't I get charged for it? ugh!

It depends on the method that you used to ship it whether or not you will be charged to have the shipment returned to you. I am not sure the specifics on Canada Post but I believe if we ship from the US via Express or Priority then there is no fee for returned packages, but there is for Parcel Post.

Hopefully your buyer will pick it up. I recently had one returned to me and I have been messaging the seller for two weeks letting her know that it has come back to me and asking what she would like to do (pay for shipping again or just have me refund less the shipping amount). It's crazy to me that people just don't care sometimes.


eta: Actually I think we are charged for return shipping on Priority packages when sent internationally. I remember because a couple years ago I sent my AF SS her gift which she never got around to picking up, then it was returned back to me with postage due.

I don't know about Canada Post though.

The person lives in Nova Scotia and I sent it to her via Regular Parcel. *Sigh, yeah I really hope she picks it up as well. In the meantime, I'll keep trying to get ahold of her to see what the deal is.

Thanks!

That's tough. Hopefully she will respond. It just sucks that if it gets returned and she chooses to file a claim, you will have to refund her everything. Then you are out what it cost to ship to her and whatever fees you have to pay to accept the return package. If she does not respond at all and you receive it back, I personally would just refund her less all the shipping charges and hope that she does not file a claim. With her lack of communication so far, she might just forget about it.

I actually have had packages returned and 6 months have gone by without the buyer contacting me to see what happened to their package. I get to a point where I finally just refund them less the ship charges since they never respond. I don't know what else to do ya know?
