The German-speaking world generally doesn't recognize long/short by letters as in Italian or English.

Edit: Here's a chart from Suit Supply. You can ignore the actual measurements and just use the numbers for reference.

 

That is super awesome, thanks very much for posting that.  I remember you saying how German sizing worked, but was entirely too lazy to find it.   I assumed it was an old system, like figuring out deutschmarks to francs before y'all switched to the Euro, but I'm assuming it's still in use since that's a Suitsupply chart.

What was the item?

Ok, I've got a buyer who is trying to use paypal credit to pay for an item and I can't figure out if the problem is on my end or theirs. The way I understand is that they can use paypal credit when they change their options in their account and this guy is saying he's done that. Is there something I can do on my end to facilitate this? eBay is telling me that they don't understand what the problem is.

UPS, I hate you in the worst way.

 

 

They didn't even come to my house once.  I have no effing idea what the delivery guy was doing.

Is was an S-works bike.  The guy is local and wouldn't drop the price after 3 months.  Then he puts it on ebay for the same price??  I explained that ebay charges 10% to sell and THEN he would have to pay a PP fee also.  After all that he still wouldn't budge on the price lol. 

 

Guy is basically loosing value on the bike as the months go by and refuses to budge.  Some people just don't understand an object is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

sounds like he "applied" for PP credit, but more than likely didn't get approved.  They have a credit card service just like all other credit cards.

Not according to him. Supposedly he purchased other items with it both last night and this morning.

Question for the experts.
Buyer on a Best Offer item took my 'auto accept' number after some back and forth and rejecting their last offer and showing my number. I put the auto on at the same time.
I don't think that part is relevant but became a non-payer. Had 5 feedback I think. All recent from some of the bigger clothing resellers that we know. I waited 2 days and sent an invoice. Another day and was about to open a non-paying case but was contacted saying she couldn't find where to pay and to send an invoice. I told her I sent one(just guessing it is a woman) and resent it. Then she told me 'got off the phone with ebay and you are blocked from accepting payment' or something like that. I replied, no I am fine and have sold items this week and would call ebay myself. I called ebay and the buyer was flagged so they told me to cancel transaction which I did(hopefully, not charged final value fees as they said I wouldn't be). Meantime buyer replied 'sorry, it was paypal that is blocking you'. I am a skeptic and just assumed she is a new fraud but now I see she has a couple more feedback from buyers in the last 1.5 or 2 weeks. I would really like to sell the item and it is not a cheap one. Considering I blocked that buyer wondering based on the new feedback since my encounter if I should inquire whether she is able to pay, unblock and see if they will buy again? Or call ebay and ask her status?
Sorry for the long story. Thanks

Trust your block list. If you start fucking with it, you will end up on the wrong end of a negative transaction. Be patient. The item will eventually sell to a reputable buyer.

Alright, sir. I usually reject people out of hand for any nonsense in the world, not just ebay. I will just stick with my usual based on your second. Patience, I do lack and items I want gone and with a good price but not worth future avoidable trouble. Thank you for the response.

Is it weird that I don't have a block list at all? (except buyers that live in countries I don't ship to.)

 

I've never really bothered to set one up.

So I gave etsy a shot.  Took a month or so, but this sold for $135...  I'm betting it would've taken double that for me to get $30 on ebay for it.  

https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1086561130

 

Worth looking into for those of you who frequently see cool tweeds for which you can't get their true value on eBay...

 

And etsy seems way less fussy.
