Someone who still has login info for the deadbeat buyer / blacklist, please add eBay username "jbabb2012". They won something as the high bidder and then let me know they had no intention to pay for it. Normally I wouldn't grouse too much, but it was almost $100, and they have a feedback rating of "1" so may / may not try their shenanigans again.post #1474 of 2156912/4/12 at 8:59pm
Not the sellers problem. If the buyer lives in a neighborhood / building / area where there's a chance the package might be swiped, the buyer needs to have it shipped to their work address or whatnot (yes flies in the face of "PayPal verified address" but you can have more than one last I checked - I used to have things shipped to work or home depending on what it was). If sent with delivery confirmation, and the buyer can see the USPS says it was delivered, what more can the seller do? Nothing...post #1475 of 2156912/5/12 at 12:04ampost #1476 of 2156912/5/12 at 12:12ampost #1477 of 2156912/5/12 at 8:23amQuote:
+1 best way to go for stuff under 4lbs IMO (Spoo will argue though )post #1478 of 2156912/5/12 at 12:15pm
I follow the international trading forum on eBay. The overwhelming opinion from experienced sellers on eBay, is that if you want to maximize your profit, then ship items the cheapest shipping method possible. This means no tracking number , no delivery confirmation. The lower shipping costs encourages higher sales. In the thousands of items that they ship, they only lose a couple. You may be LOL at the notion that there is such a thing an honest buyer, but the reality is dishonest buyers only make up a small tiny fraction. The overwhelming majority are honest.
I want to stress that the point of this post is not to criticize people on their shipping method, but to criticize people who think all buyers are dishonest.post #1479 of 2156912/5/12 at 1:27pmQuote:Originally Posted by Steve Smith
Waist and length are provided in the auction. I received this request:
can you provide photos of the pants laid out flat and to the side so I can see the length.
This made me wonder how others handle this type of thing. Do you always provide the requested information? I used to, but lately I have observed that the more ridiculous the question, the less likely the person is to bid on the item.
My usual response to similar bizarre questions is to send a reply welcoming them to my blocked bidder list; I'd rather not sell to someone like this since I would expect that their lack of understanding of what they are buying could lead to further problems (eg return requests and possible bad feedback since they have inadvertently purchased something that is not right for them).post #1480 of 2156912/5/12 at 3:41pmQuote:Originally Posted by FondDeJante

Considering they can make a second account and fuck with your auctions, that's really stupid.post #1481 of 2156912/5/12 at 3:59pmQuote:
+1. I made the mistake of telling someone they had been blocked once. The next several days I was harassed by a few different usernames, all of which I think were either the same person or close friends of the original person. I lived in fear of a SNAD case for a month. Nothing ever happened, but it was a bad feeling.
The best thing to do is either silently block them, or kindly answer every stupid question they have. They will likely have more than one. I usually start the answer with "As stated in the listing description..." Usually they get the hint that they need to read the information I provided in the listing.post #1482 of 2156912/5/12 at 6:35pmpost #1483 of 2156912/5/12 at 7:41pmQuote:Quote:
USPS informed me today that, shipping registered internationally, the insurance limit is $47. Yes, that exact random amount. No matter package value. Nor can you add insurance for a price. It's capped at $47. So express is the only way for me from now on.post #1484 of 2156912/5/12 at 9:02pmQuote:
