Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 788

eBay will make you refund. I had a similar situation and all the buyer has to do is send it back and show ebay it was delivered back to you. If they open a case and provide tracking and it shows delivered you take the hit no matter what. I received a return randomly, no contact from the buyer. Next day a case was opened and tracking was added. eBay sided with the buyer even though I had no returns.

Feedback like these (the ones off the top of the stack, no less) make me enjoy what I do...

How do you send jeans/dress shirts?

 

Regular poly mailers or bubble mailers? I'm leaning toward bubble but man they are expensive

Most jeans I've encountered weigh somewhere between 1 and 1.5 pounds, meaning that the easiest way to ship them is in USPS Priority boxes priced as 2 pounds. If they're just barely under a pound, I'll use USPS Priority mailing envelopes. For foreign delivery, I go with poly mailers (12x15" size).

 

For shirts, I just use poly mailers. ((knocking on wood)) I've never had anyone complain.

So regular poly and not bubble poly, right?

Yes. I don't think bubbles are going to be any better than unpadded.

I just received an message from a potential eBay buyer. He is from Sweden and has 6 feedback reviews which are all positive. Here is his enquiry:

"My name is xxxx, and I wonder if you might consider shipping these lovely Alden PTBs, as a private shipment, not using eBays international shipping program?

It adds about $170 to the sales prize with shipping and customs fees.

If so, I might be interested in purchasing your shoes at the "Buy Now" price level.

I recently bought an identical pair via eBay, from the US, unfortunately on a too small and narrow (US size 9, A width). That seller charged me $30, when shipping the package as a containing a "private gift, used shoes"."

Has anyone had this asked. What are your thoughts.

Thanks.

I've shipped to Sweden many times, no problems. $170 through the GSP is craycray!!! Ship priority or express, but do not falsify documents or customs forms! That is illegal.

Get a quote via USPS.com - then message him with your price.

Sick and TIRED of ebay

 

1. It was my fault for sending the wrong item

2. I wanted to make him happy so I sent him the correct item IN GOOD FAITH without getting the incorrect one

3. he said he would send the incorrect one back

4. It's been a month and he says he's busy

5. He mentioned "why don't i just buy it from you?" , which I thought was weird because it's one size too  small for him

6. eBAY is trying to wipe their hands clean (rightfully so) by saying they cant do anything

7. There are some shady people out there

8. Ban noodleboy27

I'm thinking of outright banning all ebayers that ask stupid questions. Someone just asked me that my inseam cannot possibly be the same as the waist. My reply would be:
BANNED! From my current and future auctions.

Sometimes stupid questions are amazing. A few months ago, I was selling a pair of braces and a buyer asks me what size suit the braces would fit. It took me a half hour to write a response because everything I came up with sounded super condescending. Dude ended up buying them though.

I've done this once before.  The jackets looked so damn similar, and were 1 size off.

 

I realized my mistake while the wrong package was in transit.  I quickly emailed the buyer, informed him the first package arriving is incorrect, and the correct one is on its way.  I told him as a token at my expense, he may choose to keep the first jacket at no cost, and do what he pleases with it (donate, gift, sell, dog chew toy)


He has since purchased over 10 other things from me since this has happened.
