I've never really bothered to set one up.

Well, I figure if you're not listing anything anyway...:hide::)

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.   

 

Is Etsy strictly based on fees for a sale? I.e. no monthly subscription/upkeep cost.

I've been selling primarily on etsy for a few years and I love it. It takes a while, but you can get much better prices for the unspectacular stuff and the fees are way lower. Most importantly, the buyers are so much easier to deal with. I've had hundreds of transactions and can count the number of issues on one hand. It's so much less of a hassle than Ebay.

Etsy charges 20 cents to list something for four months and then takes a small percentage (I can't remember exactly but its less than 5) when it sells.

Italian made prl. Black leather car coat with [likely faux] fur collar at $64. Worth it to flip?

I wholly agree with 2 things recently said here:

Fuck UPS. Always feels like FedEx prices for USPS service (actually in my area USPS easily outshines UPS).

Etsy is great IF you can wait for things to sell (can take months). Fees are way better, sale prices are generally higher, and you get the sense that Etsy actually cares about its sellers. Ebay barely gives a shit about you and that gets old.

Whenever I get a message from a buyer, I get worried that something went wrong and I'm going to have to deal with some weird situation but this message made my week.

^^Ah wow, that's the stuff right there!

Beats this one:

Awesome! A letter like that allows you to be a little more tolerant of all the dicks on eBay.

does anyone have a link to or know for fact eBays rules on putting in links to external websites and social media policy in auctions?

also, just a heads up for you guys - if you are selling any Luciano Barbera tailored items that are made by Attolini - DO NOT list them with Attolini anywhere in the description. I recently had an item taken down from Vero and had to go through lengthy discussions with their legal department in Rome - who spoke about as much english as I did Italian - to get it removed. I finally did but they did tell me that they are proactively looking for these to take down.

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. 


Well, sometimes it takes time for the right buyer to find the item. I've had items sit, where I've turned down multiple offers for them to finally sell for my asking price. So items are really worth what one particular buyer will pay, if the seller doesn't mind waiting.

What's the reason behind them doing this?

Yeah, that was it. thats so stupid you can't put an IG link or otherwise in the listing. Was hoping that had changed but I guess not.
