You think any problems will arise?

 

Just a note about this specific situation--same guy bought a shirt from me 2-3 months ago...got the sob story about his CC stolen and waiting on a new one to pay me, same story again on this shirt so I really feel like this one won't be an issue but would like to know your thoughts for the future.

As long as you ship in a day or two it dosnt matter except that it effects your ebay seller rating if you want to be a top rated seller.

Just print the label byt change the ship date to whenever you want within next three days, ship it when you feel like it, won't be counted against you.

Noob question: Up until this point, when an auction completed, the funds would not be available until the package was recieved via the tracking infromation. Just last week and I am noticing again this week, it has not being doing this, Is this something that is removed when a seller reaches a certain milestone? I'm not complaining, it actually takes away much of the headache of selling, I am just confused because I received no indication of the switch from eBay.

It was never like that when I started selling, but yes, it is part of the seller limitations until you develop a good reputation. Just the same as listing limits in certain categories.

 

Basically it keeps a scammer from coming in with a new ebay id, selling 500 invisible ipads and running off with the money.

Make sense. Glad it's finally gone though, took a lot of patience selling, having to ship before even recieve the funds, etc. Thanks!

Hey guys,

 

If a tie is listed as pre-owned but in the description it says "Condition is perfect" and I receive it and there is a decent sized pull on the rear and a full length run on the front is it reasonable to expect the seller to cover return shipping?

post #2062 of 16065
Yeah I think so. If somebody returns something because it doesn't fit I usually expect them to cover return shipping but if the return is my fault (in this case misrepresented the item) I'd pay return shipping.

Reasonable....yes, but not necessarily going to happen. If you want to return something on ebay, be prepared to pair for return shipping WITH TRACKING

Skeet successfully sold! So it's been a while since I've attempted to sell anything. Does he not get an invoice until I send one? Sounds obvious but I just don't, when I win something I usually pay immediately after the auction ends. Also on the send invoice page, my shipping changed from $10 and change to $15.80. Is that a preset of some sort or is it taking into account where the buyer is and adjusting the priority rate?

 

As always, thank you guys, I'm a seasoned ebay buyer but just getting back to the selling aspects.

So this kind of annoys me.....and you sometimes wondering why sellers get a bad reputation...

 

I see this in my saved searches this morning...NWT VINTAGE RUGBY RALPH LAUREN CLASSIC FIT JEANS RRL SELVEDGE - $37 BIN with shipping....seems pretty good.

 

Click on the link and see they arnt RRL...hmmm, maybe they are selvedge which would still be a good deal. Send a nice email asking and but nope they arnt. He says he puts "RRL" and "SELVEDGE" in the title to get more views, but its ok, because he dosnt say they are RRL or SELVEDGE in the actual item description. facepalm.gif I really want to report this little bastard. For all us honest hard working sellers you have jerks who try and game the system and it annoys me.

 

I really hope someone buys them expecting RRL Selvedge jeans and leaves him a negative feedback.

I'm going to start putting "RRL Selvedge Indie Rockabilly" in the title of all my listings.

That is a good question. Probably not. When I have put in a bid days prior to winning the auction, and won it, I only find out by checking my Purchase History tab.

I sold an item, and still with a relatively new account. The item is listed in the USPS tracking as "Delivery status not updated". Is this common, or something to be alarmed about? Obviously annoying because the money won't release until it is marked "delivered".

Yes, You can report it for keyword spamming. Looks like he has changed the title now, and removed "Selvedge". I suppose he can still get away with the RRL since it is Rugby Ralph Lauren.

Yes, ebay now sends an invoice automatically after the end of auction or BIN. After 2 days, they will then send a reminder on your behalf. I typically wait til the 4th or 5th day before I resend the invoice. If still no payment is received, I open a case on the 7th day, and send a friendly reminder. See below. The buyer then has 4 days to pay. If they do not pay by the 4th day, I close the case and relist. It works out pretty well this way. My auctions all end on Sundays, so with the above method the buyer has 11 days to pay and if they do not, I relist on the 11th day (Thursday) for a 10 day listing to start ita ll over again.

 

My standard 7th day payment reminder/open case notification: I always send this so they don't freak out.

 

"Hello, DON'T WORRY, YOU STILL HAVE 4 DAYS TO MAKE PAYMENT. The following message is just being sent as a reminder, and notification of a pending case.

I have not yet received your payment for this item. Buyers are given 11 days to make payment for purchases. As a matter of procedure, I open a unpaid item case on the 7th day so that I can relist the item on the 11th day in the case of non-payment. Don't worry, you still have 4 more days to make payment, and the opened case has no negative effect on your eBay account. Please make payment within the next 4 days or contact me if you need more time, to avoid any further action."
