Following up on my last post about Yoox duties (and cross-posting from the CM yoox thread again):

Have any Canadians noticed eBay's "Global Shipping Program" popping up in auctions? It is analogous to the duty fees Yoox has added (which were always standard with merchants like Mr. Porter and Neiman Marcus), but it applies to individual sellers.

It isn't mandatory, and I don't think eBay ever explained it to sellers properly, because whenever I see the notice and contact the seller about it, they are surprised to hear about it. They always offer to ship the traditional way (buyer just has to request a revised invoice after winning the auction), but who knows if this system might eventually become mandatory the way Paypal payments did.

What I want to know most is where the absurd numbers are coming from. Import duties are 28% at Yoox and 34% at eBay in the case below (not sure if eBay always uses the same percentage).



I won't be buying anything online at these rates. My purchases in Canada have been almost nil in the last few years due to our 13% HST, but paying 2-3x that for seasons-old stuff is just going to drive me back to the crummy offerings of local retailers.

It's a highly undesirable trend in eCommerce from a consumer point of view, that's for sure. But it will be interesting to see whether it dismays and dissuades international buyers to the point that the merchants have to revise their calculus. In the meantime, Canadian stores might even see an uptick -- and probably wonder what the heck is going on.

which one of you sons of bitches registered the username "stanleyvanburen" on instagram and how can I steal this account from whoever has it

That's the general sentiment from international buyers on the program, grossly overpriced. What's worse is that the seller has no hand in the pricing, they merely "opted in" to the program, and often the buyer's will blame them for the exorbitant shipping prices levied by ebay.

Is the colorful tank top the most hipster piece of clothing? In what situations, if any, do you wear that? Some affiliates do sell colorful tank tops.

I think he means the neon raver ones.
post #80967 of 102357
Ah, thanks.

In answer to your question mensimageconsultant, the neon ones are just harking back to the late 80s/early 90s acid house scene,

Probably mainly worn now by kids not old enough to remember, and yes, probably with a hefty dose of irony.
