FYI, the only thing I don't like about this model is that you can't see how much water is left. There's another slightly more expensive model that has a clear water reservoir.

If you have to ask this question, you probably don't want to know the answer...

 

 

Warning: The Sordid Truth! (Click to show)
A) Someone got them as a gift and is reselling them because they didn't like them.
 
OR
 
B) Someone got them super-cheap and are reselling.


OR

C) They are coming from a shop somewhere that hasn't been able to move them, so they're clearing them out.
 
OR

D) They're cheap knockoffs.

Question about Second Chance Offers:

 

I had an auction end with a decent amount of bidders. Winning bidder has 0 feedback and hasn't responded to the invoice I sent. I get the feeling that he's not going to pay. In the past, I've done the whole 'resolve a problem - i sold an item and haven't received payment' thing, which closes the auction and then I relist. I've never done a second chance offer. I'm going to wait a few more days, but if I do the second chance offer, should I not go through the 'resolve a problem' thing? Should I just offer the second highest bidder the item and then not worry about winning bidder? What happens if I offer it to the second highest bidder and then original bidder wants to finally pay? Can they leave negative feedback or anything?

 

Sorry for the noob question, but I'd rather not sit on this for another auction cycle.

 

Thanks

Hi there,

If you stated 'No returns', then that is the contract the buyer agreed too. However, the buyer will probably leave you with a negative feedback. Also, if they initiate a claim with eBay, in my experience of over 10 years selling on eBay, eBay 95% of the times will settle in favour of the buyer. But if your measurements were correct then it should be buyer beware. But eBay will not remove the neg FB.

 

I always offer returns, and find that when I do return and refund the buyer will often come back to purchase. Which, if you are selling a lot, might be worth the lost sale. Returns are just a cost of doing business in retail and etail.

 

Anyway, my 2 cents.

Some of these sellers purchase in bulk from last year models, overstock etc, and they can sell for these low prices and still make a profit. However, if the style is a newer style (still on website, and/or in stores, and not marked down) then I would be a little suspicious. I always advise to contact the seller with questions. You can be surprised how much info, faith and honesty can be inferred from text messages with eBayers.

 

Anyway, my 2 cents.

If you have waited the 4 days that is required before you submit a unpaid item dispute, I usually always, wait the 4 days, file the dispute with ebay and send a second chance offer at the same time. Whoever pays first gets it. You can easily cancel the second chance offer anytime.

 

My guess if he has zero FB, then he won't pay anyway. If he does you just inform him politely that your policy is to wait 4 days then realist. 99% of the ebayers understand.

It is not complete. Wes always warns me to he's added some not in the main guide. But this is more than a good start.

 

Neat, thank you.

You might want to quote the questions you are answering/posts you are replying to. Makes it easier for people to know who you are talking to.

Got a laugh out of the last case that I had discussed on here.

The seller shipped the jacket back and messaged me a tracking number, then closed a case. I'm obviously still going to return his money, but I will send him a message saying not to do that again since he might get screwed in the future.This is the flip side of the ebay abusers. I wish he'd kept it, but I honestly don't mind processing this return since the guy was super nice about it. Heck, I might even get more for the jacket now if I get off my lazy ass and take better pictures of it now that I have my mannequin setup!

In regards to the US import tax issue with private shipping companies like UPS, Fedex, and DHL.

UPS are DEFINITELY tax Nazi's on packages valued over $300. They check EVERY BOX it seems. I just paid about 7% on a UPS package from abroad.

Use US Postal Service if you can, buyers. I have bought multiple pairs of C&J shoes from the UK, and never paid any taxes. USPS doesn't have the manpower or doesn't have the will to check every package.
