I might be racist because I'm Asian, but I trust my Japanese buyers. USPS doesn't have tracking in Japan, but I've never had a claim from there. I just ship my things Priority or First Class (depending on weight).

It's a lightweight sportcoat, value is $380 before shipping. Should I get insurance or something like that?

I would use Fedex for that, then. Sig Confirmation, etc as per eBay rules.

I just tried using their website for a quote, and the lowest was $90. Is there any way I can get international shipping to japan for around $30?

Just checked spoo's listings, he has int shipping at $40, I guess I made a mistake on that quote.

How are you guys shipping to Russia these days?

 

I've been going priority which I think is a risk, but now I have a huge amount of interest via Russia asking First Class.

 

What you guys think?  Worth the risk?

 

I've been shipping First Class, but I haven't sent anything really high value. Everything selling for more than $150, I'm sending Priority International.

Hey guys,

 

I sold a Valentino Dress and my photos clearly showed no belt. The dress has tiny little belt loops, which I've close-up photographed, but I didn't specifically mention "no belt" in the listing because it didn't seem integral to the item.

 

The buyer opened a case about it, so I explained politely how there is no belt in the listing, and offered a return for full refund.

 

The buyer refused the offer and requested a $20 partial refund to "get a belt." Otherwise, she wants me to pay for return shipping as well.

 

Since the case is already open, I'll probably see it through. What are the chances that ebay would side with me?

Some great information in there, especially post 5 with the image of how to properly fold a suit coat for shipping.  Enjoy!

 

Oh wow. Thank you!

I used eBay Turbo Lister 2 for the first time last night and it was clunky, slow, and time consuming.  It also did not help me produce a nice looking template in the least.  What I really want is a separate template for ties, suits, sport coats, jackets, shoes, and shirts.  Ex. open ties template, upload the appropriate pics, edit in length/diameter, done. Shipping details can also be unique to teach template.  I imagine if I had html templates I was happy with I could cut and paste them in, duplicate and make modifications?  (may have answered my own Q here)

 

I tried to find an example of what I would like my postings to look like, but I keep running into either posted with Garagesale which is only for a Mac, or store formats. 

 

Realistically, I'm looking to sell 30-50 flipped clothing items a month.  What do you think is my best bet here, some free templates pasted into Turbo Lister, Basic store for $20 a month, Seller Manager Pro for $16 a month, or a Premium Store which includes Seller Manager Pro for $60 a month.  Ebay fee illustrator recommending basic store, but will that help my lack of template dilemma? 

 

Sorry for the long post, thanks in advance!

What would you call these patterns?

 

Would this be a geometric grid pattern?

 

Would this be a equestrian link pattern?

 

 

Thanks guys!

About to send a heavy sweater and trying to determine what is the "best" option and what is the most "economical" option. I believe the weight is probably less than 4 lbs. FYI, I do not have a scale


I ended up selling it as spoo had said with international priority shipping. It was $60 for me to send the flat rate box, but it had tracking and got there in 6 days. Buyer paid for it and was super happy with everything, so I have no complaints with the n=1.

Selling manager pro is crap.

They will side with you, give them a call.

Earlier today I an ebay member asked if the size in title and written description for a pair of shoes was correct. I checked, and it wasn't. They asked because the inside wall of the shoe showed "10.5 B" while I had written (in title and descrip) "10.5 D". I confirmed this in a reply and posted it to the auction listing. The auction just ended and the buyer (different from original member asking question) payed almost immediately. 

 

I was going to send the buyer a message explaining and offer a refund, but how bad did I mess up and what are the potential repercussions? I'm going to send that message in one hour, so advice ASAP is deeply appreciated.
