Do I then need to ship the pen back? Paypal says no further action necessary on my part.


You can ship it back if you so desire. However, I would assume that the refund did not come from the seller. You are probably being reimbursed directly from PayPal.

If you "send an item to online auction," are the watchers notified in some way?

God bless you, elvis_decanters. Still making the same complaints, year after year.

Why do people bother to take the time to send an email telling an ebay seller that their item is overpriced?   These people have MUCH more time than I do.   When I see something outrageously priced, I just move on.  If it was something I REALLY REALLY wanted, I might watch it, but insulting the seller seems like a dumb move.

@DanM is just giving us an update on an old friend. elvis_decanters has tried the same bullshit maneuver with many of the SF members. He uses this tactic to try to get you to lower the price on a tie that he wants.

Indeed. I'm corresponding with him for fun at this point. Here was his last response:



If nobody pays asking price for anything, I'm fascinated by how he shops for groceries, buys gas, etc.

Going to brag here, to keep the pure capitalism down in the thrift thread.  I found 2x Arc't jackets and a Burberry jacket on Friday at a thrift.  The arc were true thrift pricing, the Burb at $40, turns out they're both the "good" kind, both retailing for more than $500

I'll do better with each of those than with the burb should I ever when I sell it (pfffft like I won't sell it, eventually).

 

Speaking of a claim, I filed my first claim for a lost item via USPS, anyone have experience with that?

 

Dead Bird resale is pretty awesome!

Haha wow, I nearly posted this guys name here about a week or so ago. First message, "The tie is worth 15 not 30." I say fine make an offer. Second message "Priority with insurance and delivery confirmation?" I say no I ship everything priority but ties, ties go first class. Third, "Expedited means priority, not snail mail, which means you have to ship priority. The Feds don't care about people cheap enough to send snail mail, it could take a week or a month if ever. Snail mail is for cheap people," (I ship all ties for free mind you). I ask if he sees the irony in calling someone cheap when he's making this big of a deal over a 15 dollar tie and to not make an offer. Block him. Fourth message, "Blocks are for babies." Continues going on and on until I tell him that I've never dealt with anyone who has whined and complained like this. He stops. Guess I'm not as lucky as I thought I was and others have had the good fortune of dealing with this individual.

He used the "blocks are for babies" line on someone else here too. What a tool - I wonder if he acts like that IRL. Sounds like a miserable existence.

What's high-velocity right now? Massive backlog waiting to be listed. I have mostly used, all nice stuff.

Tons of AE, Alden, Santoni shoes, a billion suits and shirts I need to list but thinking I should do TNF, Patagonia, etc outerwear now. Right?
post #25814 of 30441
Yep. List everything that people would want to wear during winter/beginning of spring. Other stuff can get saved for when your area is dry and sales start slowing down.

Plebs... SMH. The actual first rule of negotiation is not, "don't negotiate against yourself," it is, "insult your opponent frequently and aggressively."
