Title: The favorite spot on Ebay
Post by: blhktpdude on December 12, 2007, 03:28:09 AM
On Ebaym, "The Favorite Spot" claims that "We are a factory authorized retailer for everyproduct that we sell," is this true.

Yes it is and they have excellent prices/great service.  Ship any item listed within two/three days.  I usually get mine in less than four days after shipping.  It has been one of the best ebay stores for Model RR I have found.  Stephen

Hate to be a downer, but I had a lil trouble with this dude...he took almost a month to ship an item I bought on ebay (and paid within minutes of the end using Paypal)..... I only got it when i complained and threatened to leave negative feedback. So in response to HIS mistake he blocked me from bidding on any future auctions. My money goes elsewhere.

I have shopped with this vendor on a number of occassions and have had no problem with the vendor.

On the other hand I have had to start a claim with PayPal after waiting a month for the item. The vendor immediately provided me with the shipping essentials for the package and the package was found.

The item was sitting at Canada Customs for almost a month before being processed.

I certainly can not faulth the vendor for that.

I would shop at the Favorite Spot any time.

Mik,

Sellers on ebay are at the mercy of some pretty weird buyers who give negative feedback for almost nothing.  Since you indicate you were talking about negitive feedback in your note to the seller, he may have felt you might be like those weird buyers.  Everyone goofs up now and then and good sellers are willing to do extra to make things right.  I am only a buyer and I have had problems, and when I send a note to the seller I just explain the problem.  They know if they don't make some effort to fix the problem they can get negative feedback, even if you don't tell them.  One purchase a had from The Favorite Spot had hidden damage from UPS (it was one of the Bachmann N 2-8-0's) all the little parts were broken off from being slammed hard into something.  I contacted The Favorite Spot and explained it asking what I should do.  Even though the listing says all sales are final, he paid for the shipping back plus change, and sent a replacement.  I have had good service like this from several sellers.

The 'Favorite Spot' is one of the best and safest places to purchase Bachmann on eBay. There are many good dealers ... he is one of the very best for price and service.

Another great place for safe, honest dealing and very reasonable, even low prices on eBay is 'the trainhaus'.

both, along with others, are reputable, safe and less expensive then on line stores.

I've purchased from both places and always been happy, but especially 'The Favorite Spot'
