Yes offer was made through ebay message and I can definitely take screenshot of that if needed

The official reasons given is the item is faulty - however, i made it clear in the listing that the item occasionally shows err30 when shooting and will work when turning it off and on again.

He then tried to target the "occasional" word that i used by claiming thay error is showed after every shots.

But before making it public through ebay, he sent me private message saying error happened every 5-6 shots. Then offered to keep the item cheaply.

Edit to clarify: the err is truly occasional since there was no systematic pattern of when the err occurs, sometimes very frequently and sometimes none at all for a long period

You won't need to, eBay can easily access all correspondence between members so they will have no trouble finding this. That alone probably will have won you your dispute claim, cuz that's seller extortion. And his admitting the truth to you in a separate message but lying to ebay when filing a formal dispute claim? Yea eBay probably isn't gonna look too highly on that either. Just have them access your correspondence, see that he's a liar and even attempted extortion, and you're golden.

I split shipping costs with him to return a jacket with no label, even though I didn't need to since he returned as "Doesn't Fit". Since he doesn't know his own measurements, he leaves negative feedback.

Definitely going to try. He doesn't leave much feedback, but 3 of the last 8 have been negs and 2 of the positive mention resolving problems.

You should be fine if that was the officail reason documented for return. Your part was to merely provide the item for sale, his job was to be sure it was the proper size for him, you did your part, he didn't do his and because he didn't do his, leaves a negative feedback. Ebay will remove it, especially if you hd measurements and stuff.

And it's gone.

I have been a supporter of the USPS priority mail.  For the most part it seems to work very well.  But, they are starting to price me out! 

Does this really matter if the buyer pays shipping?

I know this was briefly discussed a little while back, but has anyone found a good solution for the "late shipment" issue with eBay?  The way I understand it is is that tracking has to be uploaded as well as the initial scan within one business day of the date payment is made in order to not get a mark (and keep TRS).  I've been getting dinged up to 4% now, because normally since I have a 9-5 job I ship the night before once I get orders and then have the mailman pick it up the next day at my house.  However, they rarely scan when they pick-up and only confirm that they picked up the package.  

 

I really don't have any way to go to the post office every day to get the initial scan.  Am I just SOL, and need to change my handling time and lose my TRS?

If it makes you feel better they don't scan them at the post office either. I've been seeing a slight decline in my upload time % but honestly there's nothing you can do except go there with every package and wait in line for a window and have them scan each one individually. eBay can't do shit and won't budge to help you not pay them more money, and the post office isn't going to stop being shitty. I'm not recommending that you do this but if it was imperative for me to keep my TRS and this was the obstacle, I'd simply leave a polite note on top of the packaages one morning for the postman politely exclaiming how imperative it is that these get scanned individually on pick up for my job, tape 20 bucks to it and allude to "more being where that came from." Can't be illegal cuz I'm not bribing the government employee to do anything outside of his job description, unethical, or illegal, hell I'm not even handing him the money. I'm just leaving it there for him to do with what he pleases with carefully worded note asking him to do his job a little better because it''s important for my job. I think that would lead to that percentage decreasing steadily. Then every other monday from there on out I'd have a 20 stickin out from under the bottom of the top package so he doesn't get complacent and knows I'm tracking. That's what i'd do to fix that dilemma. I'd probably run it by an attorney first but I'm not breaking any law so that's just a formality. And I just fixed my problem...or he leaves the money and the note and I'm back at where I started...Again, just stating what I would do to fix my problem

Do you guys schedule pickups? They scan my packages in when they're picking them up from my house.

Of course it matters.

 

On Monday, I sold an Aran sweater and a large (Full/Queen) vintage wool blanket to a single buyer. Together, boxed non-squashed, they were over 7 lbs; ship at 8 lb weight. 98034-44094, USPS Retail Ground:  $29.00


The buyer threw a hissy fit. Demanded I re-calculate it.

 

I squashed them into a MUCH smaller box. Just under 7 lbs. Ship at 7 lbs weight.  USPS Retail Ground: $25.00, USPS Priority, $30.00

 

UPS Ground: $22

FedEx Ground:  their website quoted $17.50 - it actually cost $19.50 (eBay doesn't offer FedEx through the eBay webpage, but if I enter the tracking number it knows it's FedEx.)

 

Buyer threw another hissy fit, said she'll make a note to herself NEVER to shop with me again because postage is too expensive and why can't I just put the things in a plastic bag and mail them, it cant' possibly weigh that much.

 

Apparently she has no idea what things weigh. Or that the rates have gone up again. I even gave her ALL the information - weight, zip codes, box dimensions - so she can calculate it for herself. She finally accepted the FedEx rate and paid me.

 

If buyers rebel against what shipping costs, of course it matters. I ate some of the postage as it was. :P

Ah, my first problem auction:

"Hello
My Son took the liberty of taking part in this auction with my phone unbeknownst to me.
If your willing to cancel and re list with understanding and positive feedback it would be greatly appreciated. If not I will pay for the shirt this coming Friday.
Sorry for the hassle was not intended.
Thank you"

When these things happen, I just go cancel the sale. The buyer agrees to the cancellation, and the whole thing goes away. I pay no fees, they get no ding, no feedback is required either direction and I don't actually see why they're asking for it. No harm, no foul.

I'll do that, and then send a second chance offer to the very eager second place bidder who made 8 or 9 bids.

That's what he was saying though, that he does that, but the postman doesn't scan them regularly, just pics em up.

I definitely schedule. When they scan the form, it meets the ebay requirement.
