messed about by ebay seller - what to do?

Ordered a £50 book nearly two weeks ago from an ebay-based shop.

In stock and 1-3 working days delivery.

Emailed him after a week - got a reply telling me due to an ebay error he'd only just been made aware of the order (but managed to debit my account 6 days before that, grr).

Promised the book would be despatched that day.

Almost a week on from my email and still no book.

What do I do?

Email him again?
Report him?

It's not like he'll spit on your book.

Go ahead 'bump' him, imo.

Tell him if he doesn't issue you the book, you'll issue him the hairy side of your hand upside his head!

To be honest mate I'm not sure if there is a backlog of parcels from the strike last week?  I've ordered six parcels last weekend off ebay (All different sellers).  I paid for them all on Sunday last week................Still no parcels as of this morning.  They all said they were posted Mon/Tues.

They usually are always here by Weds so I'd give him the benefit of the doubt for a few days tbh.  One parcel I can imagine the seller not pulling his finger out but all six?!  Surely got to be a postal issue.

Also mate if you paid via paypal you can file a non receipt dispute and it will automatically take your money back from him, put it on hold and then not release it until he provides tracking and you confirm receipt of the item.

Can you ask him for confirmation that it was posted - tracking information or copy of receipt?

Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

Emailed him. No reply.

Not used ebay much but out of three purchases:

one hasn't turned up after a fortnight

one arrived very quickly

one was paid for, then seller decided he wanted more for it, so refunded my cash even though I wanted the book - ie selling price didn't suit him so he reneged on the deal.

Not seeing any advantage to using ebay at all TBH.
