Apreesh.

I have no clue what the hell is going on here, but $95 is pretty sweet

It's a micro brand from SLC (70s-80s). My investment was about $10. The company made gear for a specific type of skier- those into skiing deep powder.

Edit... am I the new spoo, with prices like these?

Holy Shit! I couldn't even begin to count the amount of BR heritage stuff I have passed on. The Canali sorta makes a little sense cuz it's extremely old and seemingly in great condition so maybe it's a collector type thing, but still that is crazy

Neither make sense to me. I expected around 30-50 for the BR vest and around 50 for the canali. I still am doubtful on these being successful transactions. I was doubtful on 875 polo sweater and 1300 versace silk shirt though too... It's been a crazy crazy year.

What are you worried what may occur, I mean theres a bunch of bidders, people are seemingly serious about the stuff....then again I've never run live auctions ever in my little over a year doing this so I am completely unaware of the potential pitfalls situations like this may have, just don't pay?

As you stated there are some (most likley) serious bidders. Many times theres two bidders one will be 100's of feedback and the winner will always have like 2. Just a pain because many times the least experienced buyer wins and doesn't pay when the legit bidder most likely would. Especially on items like this, it's not cool! Hopes are high at that point when originally not. I don't block non payers personally, but still a waste of time. Maybe this is a good problem to have? I don't know.

That must suck waiting the duration of an auctoin, expecting to get paid and then having to wait out a fucking non payer and it also takes your product off the market for the amount of days you need to wait until you can open a claim too. You should set up your block bidders list and not let anyone with a certain number of non paying strikes in the past 3 months or so, bid on your items, cuz it definitely looks like you get the traffic that you dont need to deal with people who aren't truly serious.

What's the deal on folks retracting bids at the last moment? An item I was selling was bid up to $80 and suddenly the bids were brought back down to $35, like less than a minute before the end of the auction. How does this work and how is it allowed? Seems like someone could bid something way up with one account, retract, and snag it with another account...

Report both members to eBay - They have IP address. If there is something fishy they will look into it (seriously). In the mean time call ebay and speak to a rep about the sale, but not really anything you can do about it honestly for this item.

 

 

Side Note, paypal has a really nice feature where when you log in it sends you a text message with a pin number to enter. This is after you login with the correct password. PIN# is only good for 5 min. Maybe it's just me but I like this extra step of safety for my paypal account. Spoke with a rep and they said it's a love hate thing where some people love it and some hate it but if you have lots of money going in and out of your account with sales it might not be a bad idea to add for the extra 15 seconds it takes to enter the pin from the text message

A buyer told me before that he was unable to cancel because it was too close to the end of the auction (he spoke in hours too soon). I thought as well there was a period they were unable to do so.
