Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1723

Is this a bad joke? First ever negative feedback, complaining about belt width without ever having messaged me. I provide belt width in the listing description... Guess I'll have to reach out to eBay, hopefully removing this BS won't be too hard.

I see you listed it as "approximately" (MAJOR key word there) 1 1/8". Id call that a very acceptable variance of measurement and you should not have a problem.

Second Spoo, approximately is a ball park measurement, you don't say exact, thus it's on the buyer to choose whether he is willing to take a chance on these approximate measurements you are providing but in no way claiming to guarantee as being precise. Have you had any correspondence with the buyer that could possibly harm your case, because if not don't message them at all until this is dealt with. Definitely adding this guy to my block list.

Hope you're right - seems absurd to leave negative feedback, without reaching out, over what amounts to 1/8 of one inch. My initial guess is that they didn't even read the description.

Have not had any correspondence with the buyer - going to call eBay and deal with a CSR first. He's going onto my block list as well, an $18 sale is not worth dealing with 1/8" measurement discrepancies.

Speaking to a CSR now - she put me on hold to see what they can do about it. First thing she asked was if I had reached out to the buyer or not. Feeback removed.

Yea see you don't want to do that in situations like this because you inadvertently wind up breaking ebay policies over things like feedback extortion, because yes it can go both ways. If you offer certain things such as full refunds or anything in return for a feedback reversal, this is classified as seller feedback extortion. So you never want to message them first.

well done.

Good to know - will definitely keep that in mind going forward.

Wouldn't have known where to start if it wasn't for the forum and the great contributors to this thread! Probably would've accidentally violated some policy and been stuck with that feedback.Thanks all around, as always gents!

how can you tell what an OBO listing sold for again? Particularly this one -

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tom-Ford-SEXY-RUNWAY-SEQUIN-Dress-IT42-/301823982313?hash=item46461c7ae9:g:l8YAAOSwWnFWAwnk

In case nothing comes up on checkaflip you could also search on ebay sold listings itself, sorting results by price - if a BIN auction sold between two sold regular auctions, then the sale price of the BIN fell between the two auction prices afaik.

do you guys declare the full value (incl shipping) in customs declaration, or just the amount the item sold for.

 

i always declare everything for insurance purposes so if it gets lost and i have to pay the guy back, i also get the full coverage.  but apparently sometimes the buyer will get dinged for the full amount :/

You should declare the sale price. If you sold a $3000 item for $500, would you really think putting them on the hook for 6X the customs fees would be a good thing?
