Private Sellers on eBay Labelling Used Items as "New"

Other

This didn't used to be an issue in the past, but now far too many call their used stuff as "New".

You know, if it's opened then it's not new anymore. It's either Used - Acceptable | Good | Very Good | Excellent | Like New.

People who may just have started using eBay might get tricked into buying a "New" item, them when it arrives it's used. 😑

I've seen that, you only have to look at the images to see the item is marked so why label it as new? I would not label a used item as new but would label a used item as like new if it was immaculate.

Exactly.

I've seen that a lot of women are selling "new" clothes, but once they've wore it then it's not new anymore.

It just seems like they don't know any better and copy what others do.

It surely just works against them. If they advertise as new and it arrives used, they've mis-sold and open themselves up to complaints and bad feedback.
