I recently bought a camera backpack from ebay and the experience wasn't great. This is a bit different for me because I tend to only purchase from sellers with near perfect ratings. This time I took a chance because the bag was one (LowePro Flipside Trek 450) of 2 bags I had been looking out for. I saw that his rating was good, 97, but not 100%. Most regular people have 100%, volume retailers are usually around 99% because you can't please everyone. When I looked into what was causing the negative rating, it was things like changed shipping from priority to ground. Did not provide tracking information, had to ask multiple times to provide tracking. That said most times the item was as described. I decided to give it a shot. The bag was described as mint and offered free priority shipping. The price was a bit high because B&H happened to be running a sale, so I made a reasonable offer and he accepted. First thing I noticed is that he took a couple days to ship Then the item is suddenly marked shipped priority mail, but there is no tracking information. This doesn't make sense if you know how ebay and USPS works, but I figure maybe there is a delay in the updates I wait a couple days and still no tracking info. This means he must have manually marked it shipped. I send an email asking why there is not tracking and he doesn't respond the next day I send another email requesting the tracking so I have an idea and it doesn't sit in front of the house. He responds the next day with the tracking info. When I check it, I find out that he shipped ground vs priority and the package will take over a week to arrive. I get the the bag and it is in good condition, nothing broken. However, describing it as mint is ridiculous because it is clearly been used and is even missing some inserts. I would say the price I paid is still fair, but no longer a bargain. I probably would have been better off buying it new from B&H. So my question is would you rate him negative, neutral (given the price was still fair and the bag is in good condition) or positive because I'm nit picking?
