I'll only list as NWOT if I purchase the item at a discount retail store and it doesn't have the tag. Otherwise, not worth it.

What @vexco said.

If you look at the lil pop up cloud that ebay has for nwot, it is very specific.

When a service is stacked against one side and you happen to be on that same side, better err with caution.

I hardly ever list something as NWOT. I receive just as many bids when I list something as being Pre-Owned with a descriptive word like excellent or practically new. If people know that something is pre-owned, they will much more forgiving if there is a minute flaw in an item.

As a potential buyer, this disclaimer would scare me a little. It shows a lack of product knowledge and overall confidence in your product selection. Of course, that's just me.

I think the tie would "pop" more with a lighter background.

@Shoeluv 

Note though, my suggestions are still pretty valid but USPS has changed their cost structure so I have since updated how I ship so that use the cheapest boxes depending on weight and distance.

Could be my geographical location, but RRA is still always the cheapest Priority for me on sport coats and the like.

There was a debate about this a while ago. It's a matter of CYA/lawyering vs. turning off buyers. One poster here puts something like this in all his posts to protect himself against disputes. Since I'm just starting out and doing miniscule volume, I'll probably take it out.

I would definitely take it out. Not only does it damage buyer confidence but eBay does not look kindly on people even remotely hinting that something is less than 100% authentic. I think you would lose an authenticity claim even with that in the listing, knowing how eBay generally works.

Also, re: your NWOT question, I state my honesty right in the listing. I will usually say something like "This item is truly flawless, showing no signs of wear whatsoever. The only reason I am not listing it as NWOT is because I cannot 100% verify that it has not been worn."

Sold a Anderson & Sheppard flannel blazer to a buyer overseas. Being bespoke, the measurements didn't correspond to an OTR jacket (waist being slightly larger than chest) and I made it a point to mention that. Got a return request saying the item doesn't fit '..probably because this jacket was bespoke and I'm a true 46'.

 

It'll be another 2-3 weeks by the time it comes back. Reduces the window of time I can sell it. I don't take returns but I don't want to saddle someone with a $300 jacket that they can't wear. Jesus christ, read the fucking measurements. Had 12 watchers too.

Some people are indeed concerned about the # of wears.

I can honestly answer questions like that for nearly all my items "I have never worn this".

post #25274 of 32516

Is there any way I can print out a SCAN form for a single item sold on ebay?

 

The item sold for over $2k and I'm a bit sketched about not having it in the system right after I drop it off.

 

Should I go express instead?

no way in a month of sunday will i trust postal for a 2k item.  

 

that's almost auto courier.  yah it cost a lot more, but at least the chances of things fucking up would be lower.  (and i'd probably pick either fedex or dhl over ups if it's int'l; and def fedex over ups if it's w/i borders)
