I don’t think I’ll be selling on eBay anymore

Last night an auction ended for an item I was selling. The buyer paid and started making demands. He demanded that I ship immediately and through a different carrier than what was listed. I chose UPS because they actually come and pick up packages on time, when USPS does not. The listing stated it would be shipped via UPS, and I couldn’t ship to his PO box. I told him this, that the listing stated ship time and what service, and that I knew that I could not ship to his PO box via UPS as stated in the listing. I cancelled the order and refunded him. He seemed really mad and left me negative feedback claiming there was no communication (there was). I offered free shipping, so I was the one who would have had to pay for it, not him. If he didn’t agree to the shipping, or knew it was being shipped via UPS that I wouldn’t be able to ship to a PO box, he should not have bid. There was an option on eBay to report him for telling me to ship other than what was on the listing, so I did. I doubt anything will come of it, but my 100% positive feedback took a dive because he didn’t read the listing.

I ended up giving the next highest bidder a second chance offer, and he bought it. I really hope this guy doesn’t cause any problems, but with eBay and unreasonable buyers, who knows.
