Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 94

post #1396 of 15358

I think it looks very nice!

 

A few small critiques:

 

I would change "Back of Coat" to  "Coat Length (Measured from Bottom of Collar)"

 

I would change "Arm Length" to "Sleeve Length"

 

and "Measurments" is spelled incorrectly...you need another "e" in there after the"r"

 

I agree on having the General Info above the Measurements

 

Otherwise I really like it.

Thanks, I like the edits to the Sleeve and Coat wording. I also fixed measurements!

If you want to use it, it will be offered as a blank template once it's finished!

EDIT: I see in the "who we are" there are some typos. Please ignore

Looks good, MZ. I'd advise you to press both the shirt and jacket before listing, though. smile.gif

Thanks All.

 

I am in the process of making an editable word doc with fill in forms for this template. It will allow you to Tab to all areas that need to be edited without hitting any of the coding.

 

I figure all of the descriptions, measurements, shipping prices, image locations and background colors need to be included. Anything else?

 

Otherwise I can email the word doc to everyone to use when it's ready.

 

 

 

EDIT:

 

I am messing with a border to separate the "who we are portion," any thoughts? I also removed the borders around the images.

Does anyone have any advice on the background color? The Papyrus look I am unsure about but can't really decide on anything better...

 

Remember guys, the better we make this look the nicer the frame will be when you use it!

Ahh, yeah... I lost that the wording was the same because this is pretty commonly known

Essentially it allows you to just change the descriptions and images for each item while still keeping the same feel and attempting to look "professional."

 

The link shows my first iteration with a fictional sale (please no comments on picture quality or description wording or Fluff).

 

I would love feedback on the color choices for the scheme, where things fall on the page and such. If people find that the template is generally a good idea I will make it available to any SF regular at no cost to change as they see fit!

Have at it boys!


Can you send me the template to use? Anyone know if rhis would work with garagesale? It looks great IMHO, and i have no html skills whatsoever.

Also, I feel like ebay has been raping me more than usual lately, listing fees seem astronomical since I opened my store. Do you get a break on auction insertion fees at all? I wasn't aware you no longer get the 50 free listings! AND the store calculator thing calculates insertion fee comparison for items starting at .99, which they don't make clear. In short, I was excited to open my store but now I think it just costs me a lot of money... Any input from others with a store?

Same here. I was going to comment that, since this is gospel, the only possible reason he was fired on Monday was because he killed one of his co-workers. Which makes it all the more wise that you just refunded him. But then I decided it wasn't as funny a comment as I thought, so I decided not to post it.

Wait, what?
post #1409 of 15358
I feel this has been addressed before, but I can't find it. I have my first return request today and rather than fight it and lose anyway, I figure I'll just accept it and give the refund, but it appears that unless the buyer actually opens a case, I can't get the fvf back from eBay. Is that correct? If so, are there any negative consequences of having the buyer open a case merely so I can close it with a full refund and get back the fvf?

Finally, does the "full refund" that eBay refers to include the buyers shipping costs?

You will need to go in and mark the item as unpaid. Then click "resolve issue", select "cancel transaction", chose the reason "buyer is returning item for refund". The buyer will have to accept the cancellation request within 7 days. Once they accept, you will get you fees back, if they don't accept it within 7 days, you will get your fees back at the end. If they decline NO FEES back. You don't want them to open a case.

 

No, ebay considers the return shipping to be the buyers responsibility. However, usually if I feel it was my fault that constituted a return, I offer to pay the return shipping as well.
