I leave feedback once the buyer does. We seem to be at an impasse nest.gif Lazy buyers not leaving me feedback annoys me, so I won't give them any either.

You're right about that. I didn't know exactly what it was called, but now that you mentioned it I read up on the concept in some interesting articles. I will keep track of views and if it seems to be much lower than I would have anticipated, I start checking the titles to make sure there wasn't an error. I'll also do a quick completed search and see how many views previous auctions had. If they had considerably more (in proportion to the time remaining on my auction), I'll start adding other key words to my title.

I can say that on several occasions that I have seen a big jump in a 24 hour period after I make changes. In one recent auction, I doubled the number of watchers in 12 hours.

Oh, they're VULTURES. Ha! I get it.

(Wanna hear something sad? I didn't get it because they were flapping too fast. Vultures generally soar. That's what you get when you have a degree in field biology....)

Hey guys, I know we're primarily menswear, but have any of you ever had trouble selling sports memorabilia? Here's the situation: sold an Upper Deck autographed picture of Ken Griffey Jr. Framed, has all of the hologram, certification and documents that show authenticity. Buyer is claiming its a fake because he can't find it on the Upper Deck online database, which doesn't cover older memorabilia like this (back when Griffey was with the Mariners). Explained this to him, and he immediately opened a SNAD case claiming its a fake. What's the best course of action? Contact Upper Deck, get some kind of verification at least regarding their policy on older item verification, or suck it up and accept the return?

My 2 cents:

Be proactive and push for a return/refund. Better than him claim faking and keeping it - and having to refund the money too.

It sounds like it should be easy to resell so maybe just wait for the next buyer.

Why would ebay allow the buyer to keep fraudulent merchandise, shouldn't they require the seller to pay returning shipping too in the absolute worst case scenario? Seems insane that someone can claim fake, doesn't have to send it to ebay to confirm, and just keeps the merch and the money.

eBay watchers are strange. I had a very rare expensive collectible item listed below market value (in my eyes). 30 day BINOBO and 13 watchers up until the very last second. Not a single offer submitted, and this isn't an item that people could be wafting about. If they typed it into the search, they were a collector.

 

I relisted only a little bit cheaper and within 5 minutes I had 5 watchers again. Still no offers.

 

 Yeah, that's sort of like what I'm experiencing. Surely, it's a mix of people "circling like vultures" and watching it on the off chance that I'll dramatically lower the price. I'll lower the price on my next round of 30 days (it's a Good Until Cancelled auction, after all) by a few buck and see what happens. I'm in no real hurry to sell.

 Yeah, I hate that stuff... It's the number one reason I don't sell collectibles on Ebay.

 

 I had a buyer claim that my sizing was incorrect on an Aloha Shirt sold last week. I listed it as a large because it was bigger than the same brand shirt that I wear. Neither is tagged, and I forgot to measure and list the actual measurements in my listing. At least he's being nice about it and accepting the refund and shipping the shirt back!

Because they don't want you selling it again, if it's fake.

Sometimes deadbeat bidders are a good thing. The high bidder a couple of weeks ago on a BB orphan suit jacket didn't pay the $87, so I relisted it and sold it for $135.

Because I believe it is illegal to transport fake merchandise through any postal service.
