Chris,

Last week, I stood in our garage and my mind boggled at the ammount of 'wasted space' consumed by boxes. Yes, some can be folded flat, but it dawned on me, that in today's electronic consumer society, when the instructions literally say "KEEP THE BOX FOR RETURN SHIPPING", that everything we buy - actually EXPANDS after purchase! Think of it. You buy a box that's maybe 2x3x4, and you take the device out. Maybe you have to ASSEMBLE the device, so IT expands. Bingo, double the volume has been consumed. And styrofoam packing inserts are virtual carnivores of closet space.

Sigh.

There's your answer, Patrick -- if I were you, I'd explain that to the buyer. He asked for quicker shipping, you paid for that and he didn't. The box was sacrificed as a result. I don't see a problem unless the buyer thinks he is entitled to something for nothing.

Canon USA can probably provide a box. Worth a call to find out anyway.

I did explain the issue to the buyer. He has now made a claim with paypal and all the funds are on hold- so I really need to find a box.

Did you say that it came with the box?

That's wild.

The original auction came with the box and free shipping via a standard method. He wanted 2 day UPS international shipping, which I said I would do, but no box as that would cost me too much. He got the package and then complained about the box, and now is filing a claim. I have since moved and gotten rid of the box so I'm scrambling to find something.

Do you have any correspondence where you told him the shipping upgrade would cost him the box? If you sent with tracking, he will lose his claim. Paypal does not promise condition, only delivery.

Offer him $50, which is silly, but likely easier than the hassle and more shipping costs.

No correspondence in writing about the trade off, that part was done over the phone. Good news is that it was sent by UPS so I do have the tracking info and entered that into the paypal claim. I would of course prefer ot settle this with him as I hate the thought that they might issue a refund or something over a box. They already have my account on hold because of this. I did offer him money back for the box, but he won't respond, he just says he wants the box, so thats what Im trying to find now...

Ridiculous -- clearly he does not have a leg to stand on with that claim. I think you can win your case with PayPal, if you carefully explain to them what has happened. He received the camera, he enjoyed expedited shipping at your cost, not his. There's no validity to his claim and I think PayPal will see it your way. Especially since the UPS tracking number proves delivery, as Ash explained above.

But you can try Canon USA on Monday to see if they can get a box for you.
