To be honest just looking at the picture he sent you, I immediately thought it was a purple snakestripe, though there is a bad yellow hue. If you paid through Paypal you can file a claim for item not as described and if he still does not agree you can let Paypal review the claim.

You can call Paypal and explain the situation to them, they may allow a claim to be opened.

having a big monitor doesn't mean the colors are properly adjusted.

the coloration between the pics is VERY different.




If you took those 2 pics and showed them to 10 people how many would think they were not the same item?

In fact, the pattern seems to be pretty different, maybe the other side of it matches the 1st pics?

But the fact that he bought it as a purple snakestripe and then doesnt bother to tell me its a purple and still says its a verital snakestripe, im going to assume it is a vertical snakestripe

On my screen the seller's image shows stripe variants of a #c1793e colorhex..

IMO, if i received that after seeing the seller's picture i'd ask for a refund as-well. Looks to me, and the computer(From the Hex) That it's more brown than anything. Just my 2cents.

OP can you lay it out the same way with the other side up? and get another pic?
the 2 pics I show do not have the same (exact) pattern spacing, etc.

From the (seller's) pics I would NEVER have thought it was purple.

I can understand HOW the color problem would happen (white balance settings etc) but to use those pics is piss poor representation and possibly misleading (if it was intentional). It would be like seeing an orange car on the internet and showing up to find a light green or light blue car.

You would be ok even if you gifted it by accident. Paypal will side with you if the evidence shows a color variance. It appears yellow in the first pics. I gifted a payment and got a refund within 24hrs after explaining that I did not understand the gift versus business goods iPhone app buttons. We all make mistakes. Good luck sir.

No terry cloth is reason enough to be unhappy.

Damnit people, describe what you are selling and disclose the condition. If something is missing or damaged or otherwise different than expected, tell us. Sellers have that information, not the buyers.

It is a vertical snakestripe. You should have asked if it was og and what color it was.

with a picture of it, you would expect to know what color it was... right?

clearly that picture does not represent the item, whether intentional or accidental the seller did not properly represent the item.

I should not be required to request a picture of the item under a 5000K bulb with the white balance of the camera set to 5000K to determine the item's color. The seller should look at the pic and say "that's not the color" and re-do the pic.

Not required but the buyer should ask for a proper picture if it knowingly does not show the proper color. The original picture is distorted from both a purple and brown vertical snakestripe and is not perfectly identifiable as either. Though the seller should just do the right thing and refund the money as the customer is unhappy with it.

If a specific product was desired then specific questions should have been asked, even better pictures requested. That being said, better pictures accurately representing the item should have been provided. This is really a situation that should be worked out between both parties.
