I can vividly remember a few times in my eBay career when I would have welcomed $14.97 per hour. :blush:

If I had it to do over I would have refunded, reported the buyer, and blocked. I had long assumed that the financial payoff would not be worth my time, and this case proved that I was correct. I don't work for $14.97 per hour, which was my payoff in this instance.

 

 

But surely the good times outweigh the bad?

 

I figure that I average about 20 minutes per item (including finding, photographing, listing, etc.). I just sold an item which my payout will be about $248. That's $774/hour... I'll take that.

I don't sell much on ebay, but I have a pair of high top shoes I got new in box at a thrift store without trying them on based on the tag size of 10.  I wear between a 10 and a 10.5 shoe, but these must be an 11.5 - 12 as there are HUGE on my foot.  Clearly the tag on the shoes is wrong and I noticed it's been re-tagged as there is a tag under the tag. 

 

How do I sell these on ebay without having to worry about someone returning them saying the tag is wrong?  Do I just list them size in length and width and put estimated size 11 and remove the bad tag on the shoe??

Ok do you think it's wise to even enter information indicating that the tag on the shoes is not correct?

I would not try to draw any attention into that.
I haven't sold many shoes on ebay, but owned quite a few different brands, they don't fit the same. For example, i think bally of switzerland fit massively different from all others.

It could be the brand has different sizing scale and you just don't know, so I think as long as you make it clear in the listing, it should be ok

Is anyone interested in a Jiffy J-4000 steamer? Picked it up today, and wanted to offer it here first before putting it on eBay.

Barbour reported one of my listings and ebay cancelled it; I appealed and some guy from Barbour HQ actually replied and said they were in error and apologized etc. Sucked that it had a bunch of watchers but at least no ding on my acct.

TLDR if it's legit and not infringing, I'd call bs on the cancel.
