    Just had my first dispute as a seller on eBay, and wanted to get some feedback from you guys.

    Sold some perfume, but accidentally sent the wrong one to the buyer. Anyways, they filed a dispute and PayPal, and I refunded them just now. I also sent them a note saying that they could keep the item I had sent for free (just as a gift since I had messed up).

    I think I got lucky this time, cause I had a look through the buyers purchases and it seems like she never leaves feedback.

    Anyways, have I gone about this the right way? Anything else I should do? After refunding her, shortly after I received an email saying that she had "closed this dispute".

    i think it was a good move. What i would have done differently is told them that they can keep the perfume as long in return for good feedback. I think that is a very fair thing to ask for, and so should your customer

    That was a good decision to give a freebie. Paypal automatically closes the dispute when refund is made so it wasn't the client closing it.

    eBay became a nuisance when they decided that sellers only can leave postive feedback for buyers. This allows buyers to do what they want. Normally, if I make such a little mistake (you just sent the wrong item, which can happen) and then refund the buyer AND let him keep the wrong item for free, and I still have to live in fear that buyer might leave neg. feedback, I had to ask myself if I will continue to sell on and give my money (fees) to such a marketplace .....

    Point of that spam?

    Ontopic, as long as you resolve it properly like you did, you should be ok.

    Don't sweat the neg as it probably won't happen. Even if it does happen you have an option to request a revision.

    Yeah you handled it fine. If she does leave neg feedback just get her contact info and call her on the phone. My experience with neg feedback is if I get the person on the phone 9 times out of 10 they will remove the feedback.
