Subscriptions4Less / eBay change the cause?
It appears that all the complaints about Subscriptions4Less are about transactions from Spring 2008 to now (August 2008). I mention this because I've been using S4L for new and renewal magazine subscriptions for 3 years or more WITHOUT A SINGLE PROBLEM -- until March of this year. Also, S4L's eBay feedback was exemplary. However, you may not realize that eBay first restricted, then dropped all the magazine vendors from the auction site about February or March of 2008, making their business dealings first difficult and then gone. In order to complete my last renewal, I had to bypass eBay, deal directly with S4L by email, then complete the payment on Paypal as usual. Subscriptions4Less has always provided great communications (email) and has completely honest in my numerous dealings with them. Recently, following eBay's cutting of magazine vendors, S4L has said they were/are looking for another site for their business. Having said that, my last 3 emails to them (about new subscriptions) have gone unanswered. But, given the excellent history they have with me, I will keep trying. By the way, Paypal DOES have a non-delivery complaint and follow up procedure -- one that has worked well for me on two occasions - providing me a full refund of the purchase price both times.
