If you can give us a detailed explanation some one may be able to offer some advice for you.

I bought a sample pack from Jimmy of sporting goods and I listed Bike elbow and knee pads on eBay. The guy bought them, didn't like them and wants to keep them while I give him a refund.

He threatened that if I did not give him the refund he was going to leave a negative feedback for me. He did.

I offered to refund his shipping also the initial shipping and return shipping. He chose the negative feedback. I cut and pasted his threats (there was no email. It was on the message board between seller and buyer.) into the Feedback Extortion page and clicked send.

He is willing to settle the matter only between us and not involve eBay.

I prefer this way also.

His latest message to me is eBay told him to remove feedback we both need to request it and that I am to give him a refund.

I have a problem believing the last message because he has already admitted lying to me.

well you already have a neg. and the buyer is already being a jerk. So follow through with waht you are doing with eBay and if it doesn't resolve continuning contacting eBay.

i would wait until that feedback is removed before giving any refund, you already know he is dishonest and that refund is your only bargaining chip. as a new seller on ebay, a negative feedback would really hurt my business and any 1 trying to use that to threaten me is scum. i wouldn't do anything until ebay gives the o.k. though thankfully i haven't been in this situation, so thats just my opinion.
