I need help figuring out what just happened. I bought two 20# co2 tanks last week, paid for them immediatly via paypal. This was a buy it now or make an offer deal. I made an offer and got turned down so I did the buy it now. Paypal pops up so I pay immediatly, figuring I have bought the tanks. Today I go to my e-bay and see a reminder to pay for an item, when I click on it it brings uo the two 20# tanks and says my account has been refunde the purchase price. I figure wtf and start looking and my ebay has a message that I turned down the counter offer which I did not. It also shows that I won the auction for the tanks. I am confused anyone know whats happening?

Sorry, I can't help you out.

Maybe an inquiry to the seller?

found a note from seller in my paypal account that said he could not ship the tanks because the shippers said they were hazardous. I call b.s. as I recieved a 5# tank in the mail 2 days ago.

If you got a refund, all's well. Sure, you got dinked out of the tanks....but at least the $$ came back.

I agree, but I'd still let Ebay know. They have sanctions for people who "sell" things and then back out. If it's a one time thing for him, then that's ok. But maybe he's done something like this before, so Ebay has to be informed.

Yeah I agree, but I'd clarify with the seller how he tried to ship those tanks. Some shippers may say no because of perceived danger.

I think technically shippers want the valve removed so there's absolute certainty that there is no pressure. It's not a big deal, but it might be more work than the seller was willing to go through. Yes, I'd make Ebay aware that you used buy it now and the seller reneged on the deal.
