Hey fellow AVSers,
Whatever you do, do NOT sell a new or used camcorder, (or any expensive item) on amazon!
I just sold my big nx5u camcorder that I do all my freelance shooting with (in order to upgrade) for $3600 on amazon last month, they took their nice $280 cut, then they initiated their "account review" and told me they would hold my funds until the 30 day review was over. Even though i've sold for a couple of years and never had a return or a negative feedback.
Apparently if you only sell small stuff, this doesn't usually happen but if you get a lot of returns or pass about the $800 mark, they automatically do this. Three days before the review was up, they "suspended" my account and told me it would be an additional 15 days.
I emailed them, spoke on the phone, sent links to my Ebay page (where i have over 130 sales and perfect 100% positive feedback) my tracking number info, (buyer received the camera three and a 1/2 weeks ago and I have proof) all useless. I have googled this and it seems they do this to almost everyone at some point. They can then close your seller account and keep your money for 90 days, (in case the buyer decides he is unhappy with the item, he actually gets 90 days) and then if wants a refund, they will give him one and he doesn't even have to send the camera back!! There are some horror stories.http://www.ripoffreport.com/internet...-blo-7c286.htm

This one's funny
So I am out the money best case another few weeks, worse case, 2 more months or absolute WORST case if the buyer wants a refund and doesn't ship it back.
