Lately I've had horrible luck selling stuff on ebay. I sold a nitrous bottle for drag racing in December, sold it to a kid in the army, well it took him 3 weeks to pay me. I reported it as an unpaid item, well right after I did that he pays. So I ship it out to him, first time shipping APO, I messed up and shipped it parcel post instead of priority. Well he still hasn't gotten it and he put a hold on the money on paypal. Finally yesterday I found out that parcel post can take up 3-4 months to get to him! Opps. So now I have 200 dollars in limbo till who knows when.

Then just yesterday someone bought a 4 wheeler I had on there for sale. They used the buy it now so I was excited because I had it high. Well no dice! No feedback and they're all the way in Alabama (i'm in ohio) something didn't sound right. Well got an email today saying he's sending a money order with extra money that i'll need to send to england because he's shipping it to england. It's a scam. So now I'm out the 80 dollars it took to list it. Can't win.

But I have someone local that saw the quad and is coming today, they're highly interested in it so it should sell today. Thats how its been lately, just too much of a pain to sell online. I won't sell online unless the item is worth atleast 100 bucks, its just not worth it for any less.

I would contact ebay in regards to the quad. My wife ran into a problem like that before and ebay refunded her the listing price.

Sorry to hear all that. It sounds like there are many many ways for things to go wrong with eBay.
