Need advice with court case against Buyer, Ebay, and PayPal.
I sold an item on Ebay for $175 with $25 shipping for a total of $200. Ebay/PayPal provides the option to pay for shipping and ship via Ebay/PayPal. I paid for the shipping and Ebay/PayPal generated a shipping address label, which I printed out. After I printed the Ebay/PayPal generated shipping label, the buyer changed the address where to send the item, and so was shipped to the original address on file and not the new shipping address. The item had a tacking number and had a confirmed delivery to the original address and buyer, meaning the buyer got the item at his address in Florida, but not to the new address (he wanted it to go to his brother in Nebraska. The buyer admits receiving the item, but the buyer claimed “Item not Received.” Ebay sided with the buyer even though the buyer in fact got the item, and Ebay then issued the buyer a full refund. So, I am out the item and the $200. I plan to sue in small claims court against all three parties – Buyer, Ebay, and PayPal. Advice needed on the address to use to serve papers against Ebay and PayPal.
