Listed price is $114.99 + shipping

 

 

 

I asked what he meant, giving him a clear out from asking me to break the rules.

 

 

And he wants me to honor the Ebay return policy if I go outside of Ebay?

 

 

 

LOLZ

I've decided to unload Ulines inventory and purchase boxes special for all product categories, believing this to appear more professional amongst other things. Thus no more flat rate and 13+ ounces cancels out First Class also. Does this mean if I go the prepaid route via ebay my only option is 2-9 day Parcel Select for larger and/or heavier items? It's what I've had to use so far and the shipping time is terrible. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thank you! 

 

Edit: I have a distinct feeling the answer to this is going to be fairly obvious and I'm being an idiot and overlooking it.

For ties, the 6x3x3 or 6x4x4 uline boxes should still come under 6 oz, so first class is the way to go.

 

For heavier items, use the Priority mail 'package/thick envelope' or 'large package' option if any side is more than 12''.

 

 

Keep in mind, if you're on the west coast, not using RRA or Medium FR boxes will add to your shipping costs. I'm in southern california as well, and seems like literally every item I sell is zone 7 and up. For a SC, RRA (between 2 and 3lb) coast to coast will cost me $9.97, but a priority mail package is $12.53, plus the cost of the box.

 

Though you sell high end stuff so this additional cost might not matter.

Thank you for this detailed reply, I feel terrible you took the time to do this and I realized I was just being an idiot and categorizing prioirty mail and flat rate together because before I would sned everything flat rate except for my ties. And I have been using the 6x3x3 boxes for ties for about 6 months now, truly the only way to go, thanks to @capnwes. And I know cost wise it's going to increase but it's part of a bigger picture. No more free boxes and I think I'm gonna do free shipping on everything, but I had customized stuff with my store logo on it made just for shipping purposes. I want to give off the appearance of a truly professional operation which is gonna take a hit on my bottom line but in the end I think the investment will reap returns, like repeat offenders and increased followers.

I don't have much experience with LV textiles just bags and accessories but in my opinion it looks like a really bad Chinese fake

I would be inclined to agree. @SpooPoker does most likely know better than any, but that looks really fake. You see the heavy over branding a lot on the fake stuff. I mean that scarf alone has Louis Vuitton in huge letters, then has the Damier Print, and then has the LV monogram inside the Damier print, which is something LV never does. Plus the lettering is done horribly and is totally off, not proportional to what regular LV lettering and font sizing usually is. In my book, all arrows point to Anderson.

Thats all exactly what I thought but wanted to get a 2nd opinion

What size would a trench coat with a 50" P2P measurement be?

I subtract 2" for a jacket and 4" for an overcoat so about a 46"

That has always been my rule of thumb as well. However, lately, I have been measuring many coats that are 6" difference between actual P2P circumference and given size.
