Nintendo’s marketing vice president has insisted that fresh Wii U supplies are incoming to alleviate the new console bottleneck, promising “a great quantity” though warning that shortages may still be on the cards. “Demand has been phenomenal” Scott Moffitt told Forbes, though declined to give any specific sales figures, only highlighting the sell-out presales and insisting that there will be more Wii U units than there were Wii consoles at the older model’s launch.

Anyways, Paypal and ebay are two different processes. Just because you are refunded through Paypal, does not automatically cancel the transaction. And just because you cancel the transaction, that does not automatically refund the Paypal. Just be prepared for the worst if some preorders fall through.



Paypal and ebay could not care less about any "disclaimers" you put in your listing. If you do not deliver anything, Paypal would make you refund the money. Anything else is between you, the buyer, and ebay.
You do realize paypal and ebay are essentially the same company, right?

Yes, yes. I'm aware.

Good, then you realize how trivially simple it would be for the seller to say "I've already refunded his payment, so please credit me back the fees" and for ebay to verify this with paypal and issue a refund.

Maybe they would.

Like I said, just be prepared for the worst. I thought we all agreed that ebay and paypal weren't very seller-friendly.

if the buyer does not agree to cancel you won't get your final value fee back

That is why as the seller you don't open the case, let the buyer do it. when they do, you then select the option to refund them and get your FVF back.

Toys R Us is out of the white Wii U bundle. Hurray! It's sold out everywhere. Except Fry's where you can special order it and maybe never get it.

I just updated the Wiki to Sold Out for the Basic Wii U bundle at Toys R Us. I changed Fry's availability to Available (Only Available for Special Order!) earlier because you can still make a pre-order, however I doubt it will be available at launch.

It looks like Walmart and toysrus pulled their preorders on Oct 1 st. Did they both run out at the same time?
