if i sold a 3k item for 500, do i declare 500, or do i declare 500+shipping

 

that was my question; apologies for the confusion on how i worded it earlier :D

You can always use watchcount.com http://www.watchcount.com/

 

Put in the auction number and  ​it will show you what offer was accepted.

As @Fueco has stated, you only claim the actual selling price. You do not include any shipping expenses in that amount. Otherwise, your buyer will have to pay import charges on the increased amount. If you have to file an insurance claim, your shipping will be refunded anyway.

Perfect.

Thanks guys

Having him admit that is one thing, however getting him to file a return claim because the item simply doesn't fit, as being the official reason, is exactly what you need. Essentially just tell him "Oh it doesn't fit? Ok well then if you want to return it you need to file a returns claim and say that it's because the item doesn't fit." Once he's on record stating the official reason is simply because it doesn't fit, and it's not because it wasn't as described or whatever, then all you have to do is decline his return. Yea it may seem a little bit of a dick move but this is the only way to make sure you don't receive any negative feedback or anything like that because if you do, eBay will remove it.

 

Edit: Be sure to just inform him what to do in your message to him. Do not tell him you will accept the return. Just tell him what he needs to do. Going on record as saying you will accept it then declining could result in ebay intervening. Just instruct him as to what measures to take and his reason for return.

 

Fortunately, he already opened the return request for fit issues.  Didn't message me first or anything.  So, assuming that I decline the return at this stage, will the buyer have any option to leave negative feedback?

Yes. The buyer always has that option.

Yes he does have that option. And with one phone call that feedback is erased and never to be seen again. Trust me I became well versed on the matter by speaking to ebay. If you don't accept returns and they file for a return that is for a reason that isn't your fault, you have no obligation to accept this return. He will still be able to leave you negative feedback if he chooses to do so, however you have done nothing wrong, thus he is leaving you negative feedback for something that is no fault of your own, and he is leaving it because you are standing behind your selling policy, the very same policy he knew about ahead of time when he purchased the jacket in the first place. He should have paid better attention to the measurements. Not your fault. You call ebay, it's erased immediately. You're fine.

 

Edit: Just to add. Having the no returns accepted policy would hold no weight and be meaningless if buyers were just able to file for returns anyway and if you didn't accept, then they could freely leave you negatives. It would make no sense. Never accept a return because they didn't take the time to measure an article they own or didn't read the description or measurements etc... you spent the time taking them and writing them in the listing, you did your part. They don't read them? That's on them, not you, and they don't get their money back because of it.

I was just looking at a few numbers. I have had to revise 1 feedback. @Jompso has had 4 revised. @SpooPoker has had a whopping 31 revised! Mucho respect...

How do you find this? Kinda curious

 

NM I have 4. These are are actually "Feedback buyers have revised for this seller." and not when ebay removes them which are not counted at all. 

post #25856 of 30427

Yes, there is no public, accessible record of feedback that was left and then removed by eBay. It's just gone as if it never happened.

Correct. That is why I have "revised" instead of "removed".

Makes sense... Still an interesting statistic. Numbers fascinate me. lol

Need help ASAP here. I have an item offered with free shipping. If I use eBay international shipping, I don't have to cover the full cost of international shipping, right?

I received an offer from an overseas buyer and it is showing up with "Shipping: Free"

Does it say shipping free next to the words BUYERS NOTES:  ..?

When you list an item with "Free Shipping", it only applies to domestic shipping. If an international buyer purchases a BIN item, they pay the shipping unless you have a special agreement with them. You can specify free international shipping. However, I would really question the logic of that.
