eBay Australia / do not use guest accounts in ebay

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Review updated:

Made a purchase using ebay guest account Item number [protected] from xtreme_warehouse ( transaction: [protected]). I never received the item. I went to lodge a complain with paypal Transaction ID: 04D1171840492584R they are diecting me to. ebay Resolution center

When I go to Resolution center ebay do NOT have an option to lodge complaint category for guest account. Therefore cant lodge complaints because of that. Seller easily get away.
When call ebay Australia they say its paypal issue not them and contact paypal.

So end of the day BUYER is the looser. EBAY Australia created Guest accounts make fraudsters flourish. NEVER EVER USE EBAY.COM.AU

    Ebay Australia - overcharge of fees
    Ebay Australia

    IN regards to the upcoming changes and restructure of eBay fees,

    My complaint is the combination of charges that ebay is about to unleash on sellers in Australia and consequentially will cause a price rise for the consumer

    They are about to include postal charges with final value fees which will lead to higher running costs for ebay sellers and price rises.
    This will mean there are going to be a lot more free listings available to buyers but will also mean an increase in sales costs .
    these changes will not effect sellers form other countries so once again Australian sellers prices will be far more expensive that international sellers
    In Australia we are already paying far greater postage costs than our international counterparts especially when Australia post combined forces with ebay and removed the 250gram post parcel the minimum cost for a 500gram parcel is 7.15 via clickand send or greater over the counter this also does not include packing cost.
    Thoughts anyone?
