Need ebay advice - I sold something and there is an issue

I recently purchased a couple of DVDs sets via the DDD sale that I resold on ebay... Last week, I made a sale of some of the Stargate DVD sets to some lady.. I sent the stuff Priority Mail so she would get it before Xmas.. Well, she got it today and noticed a problem... The Season 3 set has 2 Vol 1 and no Vol 2, so it read as Vol 1, 1, 3, 4, 5... She doesn't want to give the gift as is because it is wrong... So the normal recourse would be for her to send back the set to me and i will get her a new or refund her money... Well she still wants to give it for Xmas and I doubt we can send the stuff back or forth in time..

I gave a suggestion doing a swap via Best Buy, but the closest Best Buy to her is 1 hour away... Any suggestions?

I would ask if there are any Walmarts near her. They're usually pretty good with taking things back.

Just out of curiosity, why was she opening something she was planning on giving as a gift?

Have her mail it back to you and you could send it back to DDD for a replacement. Then once you get that you mail it to her. Hopefully, she can receive it by next Christmas.

That sound's like 2-3 weeks worth of time to me. Maybe they can put Christmas on hold for the lady.

I second the Wal-Mart idea, they will take anything back.

Defrauding Wal-Mart for a boxset? How is Mr. Walton going to feed his family?

I love how people gave the guy who shilled his bid the third degree, but are telling people this guy to tell the lady to return the product to Wal-Mart. It does cost Wal-Mart something to send this back to the manufacturer. Way to take the moral high ground on one thing, but not the other.

It would have been, but some jerk-off bid on their own auction and raised the final selling price of that Marvel Mega Morph Spiderman my 5.5 year old son so desperatly wanted. now I can't afford it due to fraudulent bidding and he'll have to go without.....

Won't DDD arrange for a drop ship on replacing the incorrect disc? That would get it there on time, even now.

to a third party address?

although, i guess if you told DDD that you gave it as a gift (i wouldnt mention reselling).. i would think they might deal directly with the lady

I agree. As much as I don't like Wal-Mart, they did nothing wrong here and bear no responsibility.

If I were the buyer and were given that advice by the seller I'd make sure not to do business with that seller again.

Send their money back, have them send the DVD back, and let them buy it from someone else. On ebay or a store, like they would have done if you hadn't been involved.
