    I'm sure they hope you won't use the eBay procedures to get refunds.
    Last couple of examples...

    Listing for Self Amalgamating tape from the UK. Turned out to be ordinary insulating tape (vitually worthless) which came from overseas (probably China) Argued the toss a bit but eventually gave a full refund. Waste of my time.

    Compatible Epson cartridges. Went to out of stock immediately after I ordered. Never arrived. No quibble refund after a few days but if I'd been in a hurry it would have wasted more than a week of my time. I'm certain this was never shipped rather than lost.

    One roll will probably last me past the shelf life so just paying a couple of quid with free post is a more attractive proposition for me unless you can tell me CPC offer free post on small purchases too

    = = = =

    Actually I see they do but their price is nearly 3 times the stuff I got on eBay from a genuine uk seller. Maybe theirs is better but what I got did the job I wanted it for just fine.
