Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 130

After reading about it here, I finally got Garagesale on my mac to manage ebay auctions.

 

Wow.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

#Protip - get garagesale.  If you don't have a mac, get one just for this app.  It's un-freaking-believable.  My auctions look a million times better.

This solves the International signature issue. Also, the eBay fees are calculated on the domestic shipping price, so that should reduce some final value totals by $25, or more. The downfall is that the buyer's shipping price considers import duties in the purchaser's shipping price. I'm sure all import duties will be assessed more accurately.


The trial period only works for the following countries:

Australia
Bulgaria
Canada
Cyprus
Czech Republic
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
Greece
Hungary
Latvia
Lithuania
Malta
Portugal
Romania
Slovakia
Slovenia
United Kingdom


 Me too... I dont sell international but i changed my current lisings for this.

The combined shipping- import charges are so ridiculously high, that I would never buy or bid on such an item.

I live in Greece.  Under this ebay program they charge about 30% of the final price.  I have yet to pay custom duties on anything shipped via regular mail, and 4 Euros flat rate for Express mail packages (EMS).    From what I have read, even countries that do have custom duties, the amount ebay charges is still higher than the actual amount paid. Ebay buyers from other countries are free to correct me if I am wrong.

Any worries with shipping to South Korea?
I'd assume large flat rate would b safest with tracking?

Registered mail would be safest with tracking.

Yes, from my limited and best of knowledge priority flat rate large box I believe falls under "registered mail" and should give tracking( just not sure how far the tracking will go, or what is necessary).

It's a pair of boots and figured flat rate might keep things less complicated and under weight limit.

Still not sure if I need anything special for customs to South Korea.

Let me know if this sounds accurate.

Need advice on this one all

A month ago a person bought a suit from me. Buyer received the suit an promptly left me good feedback. I had clearly noted that the suit was tagged a 46L US, but ran slim. I gave accurate reference measurements.

Fast forward to today. He sends me this message. I think it may be a case of buyers remorse and now he's trying to stiff arm me

What the buyer said:

"My dad finally got this item but it is in no way a 46 l. I am very disappointed. I left the feedback after receiving it but then had to ship it to him. I don't know where you got the measurements but this is not right. Please contact me because I will pursue this until I get a full refund, nobody has a right to sell authentic items with the wrong measurements."

Priority Mail is not Registered Mail unless you pay for the extra service. And don't count on Priority tracking as being ironclad. The only international shipment which I have ever lost was Priority Mail to South Korea. The tracking ended in Miami.
