I was pretty serious. How effective the DMCA request will be is kind of a question mark. You may want to look into it. If you send it to eBay, they may take down their listing right away. You may have to send it to the actual seller, who could easily ignore the request. I have only dealt with the issue once. I posted a really rare item on eBay and someone stole my exact picture at the same time of my listing (and undercut my price). Because their item had bids, eBay wouldn't permit them to alter the images in the listing. Instead, I took new pictures to solve the issue. It was annoying though.

 

Because you aren't really going to sue them, the request is merely puffing, unless you can send it to eBay.

 

Edit: here is a quick google that pulled up this tutorial. The DMCA takedown seems pretty easy (and free alternative)

No idea how legally correct that info is, but thought it would help since you this is a fight in principle that would be worth it to me.

Thanks for the link. His auction ends in a day so I don't think it's practical that anything would get done, and I'm pretty swamped with end of the semester work so not sure it's worth my effort frown.gif

the loafers are half off but boots still reg price. most clothes and belts and accessories are still reg price as well but bags and that goofy white leather jacket look to be 50 off

If you can find a pair in the same style (but diff size) as the ones you want, just bring both to the register and they will adjust the price of the ones that aren't marked down.

edit: i can go back since i live across from it but i didnt go through EVERY BOX so maybe your right. did you go recently and see some marked? was it the boxes or the actual tags on the shoes that were marked?

Someone did this to me once and eBay acted very quick.

Dude sounds disrespectful. No apology. Never said thanks to you for helping him out. Everything was about "him". He basically admitted that the only reason he was even willing to be finished is because he sold the one he had. If he had more I am confident he would have kept the listing up with your images.

He is serious. Although eBay is very buyer friendly one thing they don't like is people stealing other people's pictures or listing templates. If someone copies your HTML template and uses it you can get the listings taken down also FYI.

Ok, so for what it's worth, he did change the images now that the item was relisted. I appreciate that at least.

Question...I have never purchased from a non-US eBay site but was thinking of buying an item from Germany (I am in California). Are there any potential charges I should be aware of beyond the cost of the item + shipping? e.g., VAT, customs, etc?

If they ship by DHL or FedEx you may. Their version of the USPS, probably not. Just ask about shipping charges first, and make sure you are actually able to place a bid - sometimes you cant place it because of requirements.

CAPS or no Caps? That is the question. Whats the consensus on putting the listing in all caps versus just the first letters in the auction title? Should you have at least one word fully capitalized in the title, or has anyone been truly able to tell if they get more views one way or the other?
post #1450 of 15863

I personally don't like the all caps look, and have always capitalized the first letter of each word. I have just begun experimenting with all caps for the brand name, but I have no statistical info yet.

+1 definitely not a fan of all caps. If you need caps limit it to name brand only.

Auction ended Sunday. Excerpts from auction:

Listed in category:
Clothing, Shoes & Accessories>Women's Clothing>Tops & Blouses

Size (Women's): TB2

New With Tags Thom Browne Blue OCBD Blouse.


Email from buyer:

I'm really sorry but without realizing I won this auction. I thought this was a Thom Browne Size 2 for mens. Is there anyway I can retract my bid and give it to the second user who should've won instead.

Hey guys,

 

I bought an item on eBay as a BIN, payed via PayPal immediately and received shipping confirmation later that day. A few days later I was asked to cancel the transaction due to the item being "out of stock." I was refunded my payment.

 

I feel like this was poorly handled by the seller who was selling an item he didn't have and sent shipping confirmation however I did receive a full credit. Although I would much rather have received the item, I did have any loss or harm.

 

Whats the accepted feedback in this case? I can't rate it positive because I was deceived but is it bad enough to warrant low stars in the item description? I don't want to be an ass about it.

Ask them if, since you were inconvenienced, you can get 25% off another item or free shipping. If they have something else you want, that is.

+1 - I've had this happen with the 600 NWT polos I had in stock. I did my best to inventory them when I got them, and set everything up, but somehow one gets lost here and there or you cant find it. I'm a small time seller, but when you get larger stores you are going to print the labels before you pack up the item hence you getting a tracking number before it really shipped. Ask for free shipping or something off, but either way, if IMO no harm was done and it was an honest mistake leave no feedback at all if you don't feel right leaving positive feedback. It's another thing if you see it listed a week later at a much higher price, although it sounds like he was doing a BIN so it was not an issue of the item selling less then he was happy to get for it, just an honest mistake.
