The best suggestion I saw on OBO was to set the auto-accept and auto-reject price both at your minimum price. Then you never have to deal with anybody, and you get the benefit of attracting bargain hunters.

That's a good plan. I like the offers because I'll cut a deal if I'm having a good day.

Hey All, New question for today. How would you describe this? It sort of reminds me of a heavy Pendleton board shirt. I'm not sure what kind of shirt this is though...

 

It is a heavy Woolrich 85% Wool, 15% Nylon Something. Heavy...

 

 

Made in the U.S.A with a WPL number only...

 

 

Thanks!!

I just replied $18 shipped sounds fair and blocked him. It's been up for 3 weeks. Is that a long time now?

His logic is perplexing, since you've made him a counteroffer that is below his average purchase price.

Yeah, I'm just blocking people like this. I don't want him buying something from me in the future and being a pain. Looked through his feedback and he mostly bought Tommy Bahamas shirts and levis 505s.

In what world do customers get new with tags Gitman shirts for $18? I just shipped a used one for $18.

There's a small hole in it from the goodwill price gun so I'm not trying to get top dollar but some people are entitled.

Speaking of that, do you guys pass on a lot of stuff because they suck a tag through a bad spot?

If for resale, typically I do (especially for finer fabrics, like dress shirts). If for personal use and it's not too bad, I pick it up.

Hey all, I could use a quick bit of advice. Sold a pair of shorts last week and just received a message from the buyer. The shorts are tagged size 29" waist, but actually measures 30". I state in the title and description that they are size 30. Normally I would just ask the buyer to send them back for a refund but these were shipped internationally and he's asking how to obtain a different pair of the shorts.

thanks in advance!

My advice is to always put the tagged waist size in the title, and describe the discrepancy in the details. It's very common for a "size 29" to actually have a 30" waist, even when new. we call it vanity sizing...

I love it when those items you weren't sure about when you picked them up turn out to be a solid investment. I listed this pack less than an hour ago. :D

First off, always always always list as the tagged size no matter what it measures. Chances are, the buyer knows his/her size in the brand they are shopping. 

 

Secondly, in situations like this in the past, I've just explained that I only had the one item, refunded completely, and chalked it up to a learning experience.

Here I was thinking it was helpful to use my measured size in the title. Thanks guys.
