Glad its getting sorted relatively simply.good news.
ebay has got back to me this morning and have agreed with my case.
so they sent me a pre-paid postage label to cover returns.
once the items returned, I'll be fully refunded the original item & postage cost.
Many years ago I had to report a seller to pay pal for a cylinder head that never arrived.
Went through the whole process and did not get a refund as the seller had no money in their account, I put it down to experience and tried to forget about the whole thing. Nearly a year later I spotted a random credit paid into my pay pal, it turned out that the seller had now sold something else and PayPal took what he owed me before it even reached his account
