How do I contact a seller when my account has been suspended?

Unfortunately, when your account is suspended, eBay restricts most activities, including communication with other eBay members. This is to ensure the security and integrity of the eBay marketplace. After the suspension is lifted, you can contact other members as per normal procedures. However, if you must contact a seller regarding an existing transaction while your account is suspended, you may try reaching out through any pre-existing email correspondence you might have had with the seller. Please remember to resolve the issues leading to your account suspension to restore full functionality.

I dispatch order and now the buyer wants to return. How can i refund him please

If a buyer on eBay (UK) requests a return, you should first ask them to start a return procedure from their eBay account. After they've initiated the return and you've agreed to it, they should send the item back to you. Once you receive the item, you can issue the refund. To do this, go to your 'Returns dashboard', find the item, and select 'See return details'. In there, select 'Give a full refund'. You will then be prompted to confirm the refund which will return the original payment to the buyer. Please remember to ensure the item is in its expected condition before giving the refund. eBay policy is to protect both buyers and sellers, so make sure you carefully follow this procedure.

why dont my last purchase show in my purchase history?

There could be several reasons why your last purchase isn't showing up in your eBay purchase history. If you've just completed the purchase, it might take a few moments for it to appear due to system processing. It's also possible that you could be logged into a different eBay account, so double-check to ensure you're viewing the purchase history of the right account. Another scenario might include purchases made as a guest, which would not appear in your purchase history. Lastly, if the seller removed the listing or if your account has been suspended, the purchase might not show up. Try to refresh the page or log out then log back into your account to see if there're any changes.
