So I have been an ebay addict lately trying to score some good deals on cloth diapers. I have been pretty lucky so far. Well I got a package from the post office that was suppose to be 4 nb bummis super brites got 'em for $17.06($5 of it was for shipping) and I had to pay .60 additional in shipping! I see that the seller only paid $2.38 and charged me $5...rude!!anyway I open it up & it was packaged with cute pink paper & even had a hand written thank you note that read 'congrats on your new bundle' awww so cute. I was pissed abo ut t he priciple of having to pay more for shipping but whatever. Then I see 6 diapers(all in great shape) instead of 4 which was sweet except only 2 were bummis the others were prowrap which is not the same quality. So I was pist but not that pist. I contacted the seller and told him it was very uncool of him to misrepresent the lot of diapers and the whole shipping ordeal. I didnt think anything was going to come out of it since I got 6 diapers instead of 4 but I had to ***** to make myself feel better. Very quickly I got a response back with a $7 credit and an apology he clearly had no clue what was in the package bc he didnt even know he sent me 6 diapers and this was not someone who had sold a ton. So I ended up getting 6 covers for $10. SCORE!! I am satisfied bc now it went from being an ok deal @$4.25/cover to a super deal@$1.67
ok rant over! I had to share!

That's awesome!!! Proraps are a lower price point cover but still very well liked and durable. And wow, you can't argue with the price hope you get some more great ebay finds!!

I have had one issue with eBay and I was fully refunded. I'm glad he did the right thing. His wife probably said here post these I agree with Shen on the prowraps. They may be a step down but I know a lot of people who love them!

Glad everything has worked out! I've been doing some selling and buying on ebay recently, too! Mostly selling stuff before the move, and now I spent all evening bidding on maternity clothes! LOL Anyway...I usually post slightly higher shipping costs when I sell, and I saw a great explanation of why people do it on someone else's auction (never thought to explain it) but basically it includes not only the cost to ship, also any materials for shipping, gas to drive to the post office, and fees that ebay and paypal take out of shipping costs. If that makes you feel any better about the higher shipping cost lol!!
