Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 981

FYI About authenticity disclaimers 

 

I reported a listing for a knockoff Dunhill tie last night. When I arrived at the report page, there was an option in the drop down menu to report a listing with an authenticity disclaimer. Careful using them. Not sure why there seems to be a double standard with the guy Brian talked to at eBay....or if this is a relatively new reporting option.

 

Disclaimer policy

Read a certain way, that policy won't let you list anything for which you don't have 100% irrefutable proof of authenticity.

"Cause Spoo said so" isn't irrefutable proof?

Have a webinar set up next Monday with Webinterpret (international eBay listing translation service), followed by a free trial of the service. Will report back on my findings.

Can I just vent about Craigslist shopping? I'm trying to find a big tent, preferably canvas, and I don't know how these damn sellers expect anyone to know what they're selling. No dimensions listed, often not a brand name. Invariably shitty pics, usually just from one angle with a rain fly up, so you can't see windows and vents, or better yet, just a picture of the bag that holds the tent.baldy[1].gif There might be a perfect tent in there, but I'll be damned if I'm going to drive out to see. censored.gif

Pretty much, anything to do with Africa on eBay is usually a scam. I'm sure someone has had a successful transaction with Africa but I've only ever seen scam attempts, various from "please mail to this address that isn't on my paypal/ebay" etc.

eBay is advising buyers who receive their orders "late" to open cases against sellers, which will result in defects against the sellers. This came as a surprise to sellers who read about the practice in EcommerceBytes this week, since eBay had led sellers to believe they would only receive a defect for late deliveries if a buyer left them a DSR score of 1 for shipping time. eBay has never previously considered late delivery as an "Item Not as Described."

Is it bad that I actually emailed them?

Read it, and all the replies...many of which said folks are selling most of their stuff elsewhere. What are the options these days? Etsy (and try to sneak it into either vintage or handmade)? You can't sell clothes etc on Amazon without a premier account or whatever which costs money. Grailed? Or maybe most of the comments are from sellers who don't hawk clothing etc...

If it fits, it ships (rra, for the record)

Better give it some mouses for the trip. I assume you've seen the Maru videos on the youtubes?

Edit: you're not shipping a dead cat to someone, are you...?

I guess this was more of a FYI than anything, because it's information that we really can't do anything about. It's out of our hands once we ship it within our stated time window. Comments to those sorts of articles on e-commerce websites are always of the whingy 'ebay crooks out to screw me..fuck this planet..' variety, so I wouldn't put much stock in that. I can't imagine any current site with the reach of ebay, so there's really nothing to do here except take it.

Bought something online that I am returning - was given a link to FedEx to print out a SmartPost pre-paid return label...which I know is partly handled by FedEx and partly by USPS.  

 

Question is: who do I give the package to initially - USPS or FedEx?   I'm so confused...

 

Nevermind - either USPS or FedEx.  Now I know.
