I bought a mk5 grill from a HK seller (didn't know that at the time) and they shipped it from Europe. Anyway it is faulty and communication was poor so I opened a PayPal dispute and now PayPal want me to send a massive parcel at my expense.

Is there anything I can do. I have asked for a 50% discount as it was fault but that was declined via PayPal.

Take it up with eBay instead as they guarantee the transaction as well.The problem is most if not all eBay sales do state that the buyer will have to pay the return postage no matter what.

If you take it up with ebay, from time to time if you speak to one of their nice customer support agents (On live chat) they can send you a free post label, not sure however if theirs a parcel weight or size limit though either way if you have begun the request refund process on eBay and waited the pre set amount of time (10 days I think) with no responce from the seller you can get ebay involved and may be lucky enough to be sent via email a free post label

If you want your money back no matter what, I know it's a bit dodgy but go down another route.. say the box was empty, or it wasn't as described.. you could even say it never arrived - but that will delay things.

Going down the empty box road, get a box, make a small bit of damage to it asif it had been broken into, (don't be too obvious) and take a picture of it. This way will 99% get your money back for sure, it's not the most legit way to solve this but it's a quick and efficient way..
