I don’t know why EBay just doesn’t make it where every member gets one 10% bucks offer a month.

And I’m very tired of eBays never ending attempts to herd me to certain sellers.
Don't be led by the nose any longer, just say no!

Remember, eBay is a collection of merchants run by ( ( (merchants) ) )!

Got these $847 for 60oz, lets see if ebay comes back on me. Haha

I bought an item with bucks. Too good to be true price if you know what i mean. Scam listing. Ebay cancelled it and sent me a message saying, "you didn't pay yet, please dont", but i did already pay with ebucks. So i called them because the bucks were gone, even though they were claiming I didnt pay. So they refunded me cash to paypal. Then 30 min later my ebucks showed back up as well. Double refund by two methods.

Both methods have already been spent now, ebucks full balance + paypal cash refund. Hopefully it sticks since they scammed me out of 200 in the past, selling me digital gift cards. Then selling them to someone else as well, who used them before I did and ebay refused to reimburse me.

Guys, please make sure the items you say are eBucks eligible, ARE eBucks eligible.

I just purchased one of those sovereigns and breezed through the checkout without paying attention because it was listed here.
Only 1% ebucks was applied to my purchase. I called and eBay insisted the item is NOT eBucks eligible.

**EDIT**
Okay, I decided to call back and hopefully get a different rep.

God help you if y'all need to go through this. This is a cluster f*ck of epic proportions.

They asked me: "How did you apply your 8% eBucks to your purchase?"

I had to explain that it is THEY who are supposed to apply 8% eBucks to MY purchase.

Bottom line, I told them if the full 8% was not going to be applied that I wanted to cancel the purchase. After approximately 20 minutes the rep said that would "create headaches for both the seller and yourself" so she would do a one time, courtesy, manual override and apply the 8% for my purchase.

I said "Thank you, but I want to make it clear, this is not a courtesy. I'm only asking for what I'm SUPPOSED to be receiving. The item is NOT listed as bullion. The item DOES fall within the parameters of an eligible item"

The rep just repeated what she had said earlier and I left it at that.

Good luck with your purchases. I sincerely hope none of you have to go through what I just went through.

Only 1% ebucks was applied to my purchase. I checked and sure enough, this item is NOT eBucks eligible.
It is for me, not sure why it's not for you. I have 2 sovereigns in my checkout carts. It appears you just got the standard 1% because you may not have activated the 8% eBucks on your account. If these were not eBuck eligible you would not have even got the 1%

They never asked for any money back or processed a charge to recoop. Happy to have gotten over on them for some of what they owed me at least.
