I don't get it. These feedbacks are almost 10 years old.

Oh, that's nice to know. I hope he's had a change of heart about eBay feedback.

I think I already know the answer to this, but I'm curious.

 

While getting my tax stuff prepped, it's got me thinking about consignment-type items. I sold a few things for friends and family this past year. Nothing outrageous that would really move the needle at all though, so not the biggest issue. If it is still taxable, how is it worth it for the big consignment people here? Obviously there's no capital from your end and I assume profit margins make it worth it. I those items are non-taxable somehow, do you need certification in order to get that perk? Like I said, at least for my situation, I'm 99.9999% sure I'm going to be paying the taxes on them, but I thought I'd check.

Don't think there's any way that it's untaxable. I would think that the consignee(seller) would book the sale price of the item as income and book the consignor's fee as an expense. That way you're getting taxed on the portion of the sale you kept as seller.

Best place to pick up big double walled boxes? They've yelled at me the past few times for using a single wall box and I figure I should probably avoid pissing them off since they're controlling my livelihood for the time being.

I get the heavy duty moving boxes from Lowes. Neither cheap nor expensive, probably cheaper options but Lowes is most convenient for me. And if you fold the bottom and top flaps the opposite way, it really stiffens up any box (i.e. when folded and sealed, the seam in the top flaps runs north-south, and the seam in the bottom flaps runs east-west).

Well, I just made a huge mistake and printed 17 labels with the wrong ship-from zip code. The perils of shipping from multiple locations. Supposedly the refund could take up to 3 weeks.

How far off were you? I routinely drop packages off as far as 50 miles from home, and have never had one rejected.

I commonly print labels in Birmingham and then drop the packages off in Nashville, Atlanta, and even as far away as Asheville, NC. Never had a problem.

Hey fellas, a buyer from Russia (with 1 feedback on eBay) wants to buy a pair of my New Balance even though my shipping policies said USA/Canada only. Should I risk shipping to him? I can do First Class International, but again, I've also read lots of horror stories. Can anyone advise? Thanks!

Do not ship anything to Russia via First Class International. Period...

I have a phone question and felt like this was the right thread because I think we all use our phones for ebay stuff at least to some extent. 

 

I have been an I-Phone user for quite a while.  I had an I-Phone 3, 3S, 4S, and a 5S.   I loved the I-Phone for everything EXCEPT I really hated the pictures I took with the 5S.  I know that no phone will take perfect pictures or as good as a Digital SLR (generally speaking).  But, I end up using my phone a lot because it is easy.  

 

My stepdaughter broke her phone (again!) and my contract had been up for a few months, so we decided to get new phones.  I was very hesitant to switch to an android phone because I am so used to the IPhone.   My other stepdaughter had a Samsung Galaxy and the pictures she took were SO MUCH BETTER than my I-phone that I started wondering about switching.   I did some research and the concensus was that the LG V10 took the best pictures.   So, I bit the bullet and made the switch just a few days ago.  I am already missing my I-Phone.  The Pictures from the V10 are MUCH better.  But, I just learned the I-Phone 6S and 6S Plus are a huge improvement in terms of the pictures as compared to the 5S.   I took two identical pictures with the 5S, 6S Plus, and my V10 and the V10 and 6S Plus were about equal.  It looks like the V10 has some additional features on the camera that can be adjusted for better pictures.  

 

I am in the window of time where I can return the V10 and get an S Plus.   

 

Has anyone made the switch from I-Phone to Android and actually liked it?  

 

Does anyone use an I-Phone 6S or 6S Plus for pictures and found that they are better than the 5S? 

 

Any advice is appreciated.
