Also a bit stupid on the seller's part, especially if he had watchers. Never underestimate the potential for snipe bids.

Just lost an item I thought I was going to steal for under $75. High bid up to the last minute was $50. Ended at $140.

This is the last time I'll ship expensive items first-class to e-delcon countries. $300 jacket shipped to Netherlands, been in the international sorting facility in LA for a few days. First-class so I didn't even have the option to insure it. Nothing's bad happened yet, but I can't deal with the stress.

This has to be a first for me.

 

The stuff that moved on thanksgiving weekend, every one left feedback.  Mind you it wasn't a lot of stuff, just 5 or 6 or so; but still :)

The photo quality is on par with the Rebel series but it shoots true 1080 and has 20 megapixels or whatever. All I know is that when I took the free class that came with my camera the instructor couldn't stop talking about how great shooting video with that thing is. Just fyi..

Thanks for the input. The 70D looks awesome but of course comes with a jump in price. I'm also looking at another $150-200 for an external mic, so the t6i is sort of at the top of my budget.

Never ship international without full tracking. It's why I primarily use GSP. I lost 2 grand worth of merchandise in a week due to this and never made that mistake again.

Oh, it's full tracking including delivery confirmation (netherlands is an e-delcon country). It's just slow and non-insurable, which makes me anxious.

Umm.  At what point do you cut off communication with a buyer that keeps asking a million questions and still hasn't bought it.  Have a guy that has continued to ask questions through 2 relists and still hasn't bought.  Seems like a forthcoming return request or defect if he actually buys it.   My listing couldn't be any more clear on the details.

I would have already blocked him. Unless you really want to move the item or are trying to build a large customer base, I think these small fish are worth letting go. I do this part-time and I am firm in my philosophy that anything that may result in a headache for me is not worth it.

Then I wouldn't worry. I've had a first class package held up for 8 days once and it was a domestic package. USPS just fucking sucks sometimes, as we all know and experienced.

+1 I block people almost every day if I get a bad feeling about them

post #25137 of 30428

I've got another one for the block list - bajeu03

 

Warning: backstory! (Click to show)
So this seller contacted me about an Isaia three piece suit I had asking for a discounted BIN price. After a little back and forth I agree to drop the price by $75 and refund all shipping costs he pays to ebay. Buyer agrees and clicks BIN but does not pay.

Here's the fun part.

He's in France and now complains because the Global Shipping Program is too expensive (claims its $140 to France) and wants that credited back too. I tell him I can't as GPS is paid directly to a third party and I can't lower it or change it from my end. I offer to cancel the transaction if he wants to. He doesn't want to.

Today he pays and has a US based address in his ebay verified address. I send him a screen shot asking for confirmation and it is indeed his friends address. Ok, so I print the shipping label and then get a message with him saying he also wants another $25 dollars credited back because his friend will have to ship to france. I replied and said no, I already offered the $75 and shipping which we both agreed to. I can either refund you your payment and eat the shipping I have already paid or you can stand by our original agreement...

ugh these kinds of transactions make me wonder if it's worth ebay.

If find that the bad feeling is quickly erased by the good feeling I get when I put someone on my 'No soup for you!' list.

I just sold a Thom Browne shirt to a Chinese buyer. The entire address is in Chinese characters except for the postal code and "China". It shows as eligible for seller protection.

Any problems with that?

Reason #63 why China is the only country that I have blocked from bidding on my items.
