Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1597

post #23941 of 30436
Went through my inventory on Sunday. Some items have been sitting in backlog for almost 2 years. I flew through about 30 items and listed them at $9.99 with no reserve. I saved time by putting most of the jackets on a hanger instead of my mannequin. Basically it was all of the crap I didn't want to list because it was the basic shit you buy even though it's garbage but you know you can still make decent money on it. Ancient Hickey Freeman, old BB, a lot of shirts, etc. Hoping to do another 20 items tonight and schedule them to go to auction on Thursday. I'm sure that a lot of them will end for under $20 and I could have done better with BINOBO, but at this point I just want to dump it. Feels good to get rid of it. Having 50 cheap auctions running should draw a lot of views to my BINOBO.

Again, I also had a positive experience with reenilf. Approximately $200 sale, paid and positive feedback left.

@MJMcRibb... and others who may know: what's the deal with MaxMara - I've been seeing it here and there - is it an autocop or is there something specific I should be looking for?

I know little, other than it's pretty pricey at retail. I'll pick the outerwear pieces, as those tend to do very well, but, for resale, most of the other stuff has been meh for me. I did well last year with a Marina Rinaldi coat, which is another of their lines.

How many times/different ways do you all try to contact a buyer who isn't paying and/or responding to messages? I've tried 3 times with this clown who had mixed feedback but for whom I accepted a best offer last Thursday.

Is there any way to ensure that he gets a ding if he doesn't pay? (Auto unpaid assistant opened a case after 2 days.) And is there any way to do that without having to sit with my item not listed for an extended period?

I send one message along the lines of this usually 2-3 days after the auction ends:

Quote:

Dear Buyer,

 

Thanks so much for your purchase! I just wanted to let you know that eBay will automatically open a non-payment case on this transaction some time within the next 24-48 hours. It's something that happens on every transaction where payment isn't made within a certain period of time. When they open the case, you will still have about 72 hours to complete the purchase, and when you do so, the case will be closed, and erased from the record. If you do not make payment, the item will go back up for auction, and eBay will record a mark on your buying record, which isn't really that big of a deal unless it happens a lot.

 

If you need more time to pay, please contact me, and I can hold off eBay for a few days for you. I'm mainly sending this because I don't want you to be caught off guard.

 

Thanks again! I know you are going to love [product]!

 

Josh

 

That usually does the trick within about 24 hours, and if it doesn't, I still feel okay because I've done my due diligence.

Anyone can advise what would be a good price for a Brioni leather jacket ? frieschskys seems to be the monopoly for that on ebay, and can not seem to compare him/her with anyone else. Having said that the price he/she offers seem to be good discount from retail.

$400-$600 used seems to be the average.

 

*Edit, also, it doesn't matter who is selling them. The market bares what it bares, whether it's one guy or ten guys selling them, right?

I feel like it should only be a pickup if its cashmere.

Thanks for the price reference- a long time ago I was taught that the market where there was one seller would be very different from the market where there were 10 sellers. I still think that hold true.

 

Obviously it will depend on how you define the market, but I will not get into that discussion here.

If you're comparing to frieschskys I assume you're selling a new one. I sold one (a leather blazer) for about $900 and it was bought up immediately then regretfully the buyer returned it because of sizing and it was snapped up again by someone else. Perhaps if I had wanted to wait some time I could have asked for more.
Truthfully I don't think you can expect to get what frieschskys does too easily unless you have that kind of reputation and exposure. Also, Once you reach a certain price point there will be some waiting time.

Thank, this is very informative. Actually, I am thinking of buying. Considering between a brioni leather jacker and a tweet jacket (I know 2 very different things, but I only have budget for one).

Oops, sorry I didn't catch that.

I think it goes without saying that cashmere is an autokop, but I'll say it again anyway...
