I don't really want to give them another credit card.  Will anything negative happen if I just ignore?
I don't have any traditional credit cards attached to my account. I opened a PayPal line of credit which serves as my required backup payment. No annual fee and it doesn't expire.

Thank you both

In a bit of a listing pickle.  Found 2 Gustin OCBDs tagged XL.  However, the P2P on both is 22 and strangely the arm length is 27 from shoulder seam.  Looking over Gustin fit chart, the shirts are more in line with their Medium.  I'm guessing the shirt shrunk or Gustin has some wacky sizing.   Anyone else come across this?  Would I list at XL but fits M?

At the risk of being sniped on it, can anyone tell if this is real or fake? http://www.ebay.com/itm/NWT-2-495-Belvest-Wool-Silk-Linen-Two-Button-Beige-Sand-Checks-Sport-Coat-36-46-/301841460721?hash=item4647272df1:g:uhMAAOSwa-dWjQ-8 

 

The seller is from Moscow, which makes me reluctant, and I don't see the seam allowance and two strips of tape going down the center like I do on other jacket-in-the-box images.  OTOH, this seller has only positive feedback and an odd assortment of items if he's selling counterfeits.

Price too high for Jacketinthebox Belvest.

Well, I certainly wouldn't be paying the BIN price either way.

Block user flt2ngo. Bitched about him before but it's another account for the user oops2016. Bought beams x alden shoes and then left negative feedback without contacting me.

Contacted ebay and they said it was an account for oops2016 that I blocked. He broke ToA so they removed the feedback for me.

He left this "selling defect item on purpose. Liar!! Be carful" I knew he was going to be a problem. At least I got a small win.

What is it about Polo buyers?  This is the second time in as many weeks I've had someone who won an auction for a PRL listing asking me to reduce the shipping charge post auction. "Ship this in a legal envelope for $5" If this annoys you to no end, block:

'Lo heads can be the worst. Them, and the high-fashion addicts can really drive me insane. Great profits but elevated aggrivation to match.

That said, once I sold some Michael Jackson action figures... you've never seen a bigger parade of fuckin' weirdos. Constant stream of the most bizarre questions/messages ever.

Advice from the pros if you please.
Sold a Polo jacket that I stated in the ad was discolored around the waist and sleeves for $10 plus shipping.
Buyer is a 0 feedback noob who sent me a 'brown around sleeves and collar' and a 'request refund'.
I am thinking to tell her 'discolored stated in ad' and to sod off. I assume she will leave neg feedback but might do that anyway.
Then call ebay if she does to tell them this is bs, she is new and clearly just looking for freebies.
I see she has 1 feedback now but that might have been an auto from a larger seller. Buyer became ebay member same day she bought from me.
I have zero negative feedback because I describe items thoroughly and do not overstate condition or quality. Fortunately, have always had honest buyers previously who appreciate the goods.
I have about 80 feedback total, maybe half buys/sells.

But I would like to hear from y'all. Thanks

Side question, how are some listings 'private'? I see her feedback is recent, of course, but does not show the item but has the 'private'.

hey all. really annoying issue. using ebay's international shipping service, i shipped the wrong product to someone.

what is the best way to get said product back and get the right thing back out to him?

thanks.

That sucks man. I've still - knock on wood - been able to avoid that scenario but have come very close before.

How expensive is the wrong item you shipped? If it were me (on an international sale) I'd be really tempted to just eat the cost of that item, and get the correct shipment out the door asap. I'd rather shorten the lag time experienced by int. buyers due to a mistake I made than risk a case or neg.

When thr dust settles, if I felt like the buyer was OK, then I'd ask about a possible return of the first item. Otherwise, they can keep it and I chalk it up.

Did the same thing before, had to eat the $32 return shipping

Is there a reason it takes 24-48 hours to remove feedback? Seems like a few mouse clicks can do it after it's been determined invalid. I don't like having to wait around with a blemish effecting my sales.
