To learn a valuable lesson...

I have actually had this happen once and the buyer was so extremely nice about the entire transaction. I wasn't sure whether I just lost the item, donated it, gave it away or what. I told the buyer that I couldn't find it but would keep looking. They told me to let them know if it came up but were extremely nice about it.

Communication is key.

Ur descriptions has me to believe I was the buyer In this specific situation . Did this happened to be a BB Egyptian cotton dress shirt few months back?

Nope, not me! In my situation it happened on a plain jane pair of PRL Dungarees.

Sorry, I thought Spoo was suggesting that the buyer cancel the bid, then end the item. That would be a loophole.

Nope. Brooks Brothers green paisley dot tie. Must have sent it to an SFer as an extra in a trade and forgotten to take it off my inventory. So when I did my mass of relisting after my Holiday break, this went up and got sold. Refunded the money plus 20% ($2) and canceled the transaction. No negative feedback....yet.

Hey guys, quick question. Got an offer on a BIN/OBO,the first time I've tried this format. Is an offer in addition to shipping costs, or total paid out the door? Really matters as the buyer is in Japan.

It should be just for the item. It should also show you the shipping the buyer will pay when you're looking at the offer, deciding whether to accept or not.

I dont believe so, I have yet to experience an offer.  But from my understanding, they are offering a negotiable price based on the selling price, sans delivery cost.

Stumbled upon this. Anyone see USPS is raising the prices January 27th?

 

Here is a list of the new pricing:

https://www.usps.com/new-prices.htm

 

Some stuff appears to be taking a pretty decent hike.

Yeah...saw it. Sucks...

 

Priority is taking a 6.3% increase....in the post office. All the more reason to print your own labels.

The online Priority price is only increasing 3.7%.

Plus if you meet the qualifications for Top Rated Seller, you will receive even further discounts on ebay shipping labels .

 

 

If you are a brave non-registered international shipper....International first class less than 1 lb could see up to a 60% increase...ffffuuuu.gif, but will now be available at a discounted online price.

I have a low dollar amount auction going on with a bidder with 0 feedback that just joined eBay 2 days ago...

Should I be concerned? Anything I can do?
I have my bidding req set to most conservative. Block non payers, negative feedback ect...

Recently set up an eBay account for buying. I will also appear as a 0 feedback member. Should i expect static or descriminaton from sellers? How does it work for a first timer hoping to buy some sart orial goods off of the bay? Should i reference my humble SF cred... smile.gif

You cant block 0 feedback buyers. It always concerns me when I see it, but haven't had an issue yet and you can't do anything about it anyways.

I've had a few 0-feedback buyers. One was a non-payer but every other one turned out fine, even the one from Argentina.
