Default Buyer shipped return UPS to stealth address

Idiot buyer shipped return UPS to stealth address even when I had given them a USPS label with the correct address. Honestly ridiculous. Anyway, it's going to a stealth address, signature required. Is this just going to be a loss? Any ideas?

Basically, I'm ready to take the loss, just worried this could now cause more trouble for me somehow if the people start investigating why they got this package.

Well did you make the account yourself? The same thing happened to me with an account I bought on here and the return went to the person whose name I was using, he contacted authoritites and they are looking for the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ dude, not only that some of my long term customers got their paypal limited because of purchases from him. So now when I buy an account I google the name and address.

if this is a dispute,wont the buyer be asked by Paypal or Ebay to ship to his return address on the stealth account,I can see why buyer ignores the USPS label you want him to use.

Even then, the seller has the option to send their own return label outside of eBay. It sounds like OP accepted the return (shouldn't have done), eBay provided a label with the stealth address, OP emailed a label with the correct address, but the buyer took the path of least resistance by using the label already delivered to them by eBay.
I uploaded my own label to ebay. If he had used the ebay system I would be fine. He went to UPS on his own.

where did he get the return address?
can you call UPS and ask them to reroute the shipment?
or can you call him to reroute,saying that if he does not use your label,he wont get the refund?

If he didn't use the label I gave him, I'd wait the 5 days or whatever it is, then call ebay and tell them to close the case lol

Buyers are still given the option to use their own label and upload tracking

Losses need to be figured in to any online business just as big chains factor in certain amount of inventory stolen from shoplifting they already know a rough estimate of the loss before it happens

if signature is required,the item could be an expensive item.
Buyer is sending UPS,if signature is required and the person who lives in that stealth account refuse to sign,then it will go back to the buyer,then OP will ask him to use his USPS label and send again.
Or ask buyer to call UPS and intercept the package or reroute ,I think the recipent can ask to have it rerouted?

These are 200-300$ items.

I'm seriously ripping my hair out. Another dumbass buyer just did the same thing but USPS. I sent the label, they simply don't use it and made their own. I have never had this happen in over a year of stealth and now twice in a row.

I don't feel its safe to put my real return address on the account.

If UPS was used, and you have access to the senders name/address and tracking # you can request to resend the shipment anywhere you like, including to your local UPS store. I have an online account with them and have done this before.

why didnt you just update your return address at time of return then delete it.

even if item gets returned to original sender. eby will still refund the buyer.

so you ll be out of funds n item.

Too many of these could trip an issue on the online platform though

You must be a low-volume seller.

Sound familiar?

My current plan is to just go pick it up from their house if they sign for it.

I will say it went there by mistake. I don't see any issues with this.

This guy went outside the eBay return system. According to ebay, his return has not even shipped yet, as he didn't use the label or tracking I provided.

You simply can't prevent some people from being idiots. He wasted his own money when I sent him a label.

You are still low IQ. Paypal is reversing the no fee refund system because so many people had a problem with it.

Yet in your wisdom, you thought it was not a big deal. Again, purebred dumbass. The fact you can't understand that is mind-blowing.
