I'll start....

 

At one time I has several garbage bags full of used packing peanuts. I would suck the air out of the bags with a vacuum cleaner and store them in the garage. It got to a point where I just had too many. I figured, sellers would buy new peanuts online for their shipping supplies. Have you ever seen how much they cost? It's ridiculous! Anyway, I sold a large box of USED packing peanuts for around $20 plus shipping. 

+1 I have picked up a few free bags worth on Craigslist myself.

I don't use packing peanuts. I use crumbled usps priority bags.

Where do I go to find "sold listings" only? I can find the completed listings but not sold, and I know that feature was available a while back when they ere playing with rolling out some new features. The sold listings only was super useful when figuring out what percentage of items similar to mine actually sold and is kind of tough to figure just from completed listings.

Sold ones in completed listings are the ones with the green numbers.

You used to be able to specifically filter those ones, but I don't think you can anymore.

Yeah that's what I'm talking about - I used to have that for a few weeks and was loving life but I don't anymore.

Here's how mine shows now:

tbh I really have a lot of pride in every item I sell - I don't sell BR pants because I love them, I do it because I make $20 of profit on them. But even when I sell an RG, it's cool to think that some guy a thousand miles away is opening up the package and thinking "cool, this is just what I wanted"

For those who search and buy alot on eBay there is website http://www.geo-ship.com. It has an option to search many eBay locales at once and many other features like displaying those items that are available to a specific country...

Ebay is still going through an update from what I understand. Sometimes you will get the new look and sometimes the old look until they fully roll out the new look.

Can you report a winning bidder that uses profanity for an item I sold him?  I sold this guy a suit and he's not happy with it, ok, no problem. Will refund him the $. His message is crap this, eff this etc. Just want to get back at him in case he decides to leave neg. feedback on me...

+1 So do I , but keep in mind that usage of USPS packaging in such a manner may be a Federal crime. Living on the edge!

I agree. For me, it has become necessary to make a business of my thrifting and sell various brands and styles. Making people happy with their purchase. . .

I have listed an item that's available for International shipping, I had mentioned that international bidders should check with me on the shipping rate before they bid.  I now have a bidder from Canada and he has not checked with me on shipping rate.  Do I wait till the auction gets over or inform him about the shipping cost, right now?

 

Thanks for your help.

You should just post the rates as your fixed shipping costs and avoid the whole contact process, which 95% of the people wont adhere to anyhow.
