Probably for a dude with gyno.

Any issues with shipments to South America or Ecuador in specific?

 

First Item will be going there this week, and go figure it was a Tweed Jacket....None the less, a tweed that most do not purchase for flippage due to its inconsistency.

Anyone have a number for ebay that gets to a North American agent?

What do you guys put into the tracking # slot when you and a buyer decide to do a local pick-up?  The transaction was completed without that option, and I do not want to get dinged for not updating within my handling time.  Just make something up?

Making it up wouldn't do any good, it has to be scanned to count anyway now. You're fine, as long as you don't fall below 90%, no dings for that.

Yea, I'll just leave it be.

Just packaged my first shipment to former SSR, Azerbaijan. I hope it survives the trip!

Currently dealing with a buyer from the UK who wants to deal outside of eBay because he doesn't want to use the global shipping program. He has good feedback and seems legit in the email, but he's asking that I declare the package to be less than $20 even though he's sending me over $100. Is that normal?

Don't do a deal outside of eBay unless the conversation started outside of eBay. If the auction is still active, you can go in and change shipping options so that you offer priority or express to the UK only. Don't change the declaration price. If he has a problem with it, block him and don't worry about it.

I have had one of these as well, I am sure the big sellers get these all of the time. My point of view is; is this single sale worth losing my eBay business if eBay finds out or going to jail/civil fine if US/UK customs finds out? 99% of the time you probably get away with it (unless he contacted you through eBay...). I wouldn't do it, but that is just me.

Are you allowed to deform a RRA box? I am putting another box inside that is slightly wider and it fits but there is a bulge in the box.

I've sent plenty of RRA and flat rate boxes that were bulgy on the sides. If it fits, it ships, and they don't define "fit."

Awesome, because the price difference was really large, like $5 for a free shipped item. Thanks!

All the time...plenty of tweeds or suits make the box bulge.  Extra tape is added, and away it goes!
