What's with India and the Vernier Transit?
I have never sold anything on ebay.... I would be too slow with the shipping.
that said I do purchase worldwide regularly, and have had Zero problems.
If it comes from China or Hong Kong it is a bit slow.
other than that I consider it the same as buying anything sight unseen, from a total stranger.
a few weeks ago I bought a 16TB HDD, it was dead on arrival (+/- $350).
I asked for a return, it was handled promptly with a prepaid return FedEx label, and the money (every penny) was back in my PayPal account within 24 hours of them receiving it.
long story short: @jonathan50
if you want a simple open transit, with a compass, in a wooden box, with a 3.5" thread tripod.... mine needs to go.
it's kinda funky, but it cleans up well
I have never sold anything on ebay
I've sold a couple dozen items on eBay, and can attest that the buyer is heavily favored under eBay rules. One item I sold as "not working, for parts only" with a no-returns policy. The buyer decided he didn't want it, and eBay required me to accept the return and pay for return shipping. Sheesh!
