What is the best way to go about an item that was never received from an Etsy seller. It has been 3 months. This person has lots of negatives from buyers never receiving items.
Anyone had this problem?

too bad you waited so long, paypal gives you 45 days to ask for a refund through them. if you used a CC you can ask for a charge back. also file a non delivery with etsy but other then that there isn't much you can do sorry

Go to your feedback page - there's a link that says "report for non-delivery."

And techinically, you're calling out. If you have questions about this sort of thing, contact Etsy at
support@etsy.com or abuse@etsy.com.

I don't think there's much you can do. You can contact etsy but to file a paypal dispute you would have had to do it within 45 days of purchase.

I knew about the 45 day thing for paypal, that is a bummer. I figured since it was non us I would allow extra time...that is what I get for being so patient. I will contact Etsy and see what they say. Thanks!

wow you have been truly patient to wait this long :)

I would definitely write the seller to tell him you never received your order. Depending on his policies he should either resend the item or more likely refund you your money.

I thought there was a way through paypal to get your money back.

Have you contacted the seller? That would be the first step, before reporting to etsy.
