I just got the email and came in here to vent about the fact that a DSR of a 3 now will count as a defect apparently if I read this right.  If they're going to say that a 3 is a defect, they need to change the effing labeling so people realize it's really 5-stars-or-nothing.

Just when you think eBay can't get much worse, they find new, creative ways to be shitty...

edit:  to be clear, and for convenience, here is what ebay considers a defect:
  • 1, 2 or 3-star rating for item as described


  • 1-star rating for shipping time


  • Negative or neutral feedback


  • Return initiated because the item was not as described


  • An eBay Money Back Guarantee or PayPal Purchase Protection case opened for an item not received or an item not as described


  • Seller-cancelled transaction





Would a scenario where the buyer returns something outside of the managed return process, and the seller then refunds the payment and initiates a cancel transaction process fall under this? If so, that would be asinine.

Does it not also mean that it has to have been scanned once within the handling time, not just that the label has been created?
Ive had many sellers create the label and then leave it a few days before it was actually received by usps.

I don't think they can do that one. The handling time cutoff is midnight PST on the last day of the handling window. I don't know many post offices open at that hour. Though a package which does not arrive in the estimated delivery window could be subject to a "defect" mark due to shipping time.

I do it for almost all the flat rate stuff I send out, but if it has to be weighed, then I often pass. I guess I'd be better off just guessing sometimes and going with it.


I highly recommend a scale, I used to guess and was paying way to much for ties. I saved the cost of the scale in shipping after ~15 sales. The postman complimented me on how accurate my weights were, I said they better be since I spent $40+ on the post office scale.

i too invested in a scale. i actually thrifted mine haha. great digital scale and accurate. since first class is under 13oz this scale is more than enough for me.

I check the seller's other items and the first tie I see is a NWT JAB made in italy, same thing so I grab that one too. Then I notice that the seller has about 5 other ties at a 99 cent auction. So I wonder if the seller messed up and meant to list them as auctions.

Not 5 minutes after I buy the two ties, the seller messages me saying her son had dirty hands and messed up a bunch of the ties including my two, and that she will have to cancel the transactions.

She said she would be listing some more ties and could possibly make it up to me, and also said something about men's suits.

So, I think I'm going to ask what replacement ties she has to offer. But if they aren't any good, do I a) take a chance that she's lying and tell her to send them anyway, risking that I get unusable ties, b) ask her to have them cleaned then send them, or c) just take the refund? Also, if I take the refund and see them relisted, is there anything I can do through eBay to call her out?

EDIT: She cancelled all her other tie auctions. So I'm leaning toward believing her.

I'm leaning towards lying.  Who puts BIN for .99$ on much of anything outside lint.

Thanks

No your problem if shipped and shows delivered to their verified PP address.  Have them take it up with the locals or they can call eBay.

Yes, I hate it.  It tells me based on my returns from the last cycle, I would not be eligible IF these requirements were in place at this time.  Screw them!

I found an RG wing collar tux shirt with an incomplete RG stud and link set in it (missing 2/4 studs), should i list it with the incomplete set, list the shirt and the set seperately, only include the links or some other variation? while the shirt is in phenomenal shape, i'm worried the incomplete stud set will lower the selling price if included.

If I am understanding this correctly, my answer would be to list the RG as if no studs were ever involved.  If the option is not there, the buyer is not knowing what they are missing out on.  It is of the norm to purchase tux shirt w/o studs.

 

I would hang onto those studs, in case you find more down the line to sell as a set.
