@Fueco Are you seeing better results with Auctions compared to Buy It Now?  (Higher prices, more sales?).

I wish I could do this every time I spent $7.

That's pretty impressive for a used Ferragamo shirt. I bet if you had the same shirt in solid blue you'd struggle to get $40. Seems like as long as it's been brand whored it's gold.

This is the first weekend of results, so I'm not really sure yet. Ask me in a month. I'm slowly transitioning most all of my non-consignment stuff to auction format. My results in the past would suggest that I do better with auctions in terms of sheer volume of sales.

It's a little bizzare to me. I just had an item that failed to sell 3x at auction. (One of them was a non-paying buyer.) I relisted BINOBO ~30% higher to give head room for offers, and it sold for my asking price in less than 24 hours. Baffles the mind.

This week, I'm auctioning a BINOBO item that I didn't get any offers on in 30 days. St. John skirt suit. Not even a lowball. We will see how it goes.

Called eBay yet again (4th call), and the skinny is:

eBay refunded the buyer the full amount of $109.99.  Since I already zeroed-out my PayPal account, they want me to xfer funds back into PayPal.

So, the buyer has the item as well as a refund from eBay, which eBay in turn will extract from me.  If I don't have the funds in PayPal, they will add it to my monthly statement and get it that way.

The eBay rep said when they did away with hassle-free shipping, they also did away with any sort of eBay seller protections or coverage for this sort of issue (I didn't know they did away with hassle-free shipping, since I never used it).

eBay said that the tracking # from the buyer, showing that "something" has been sent to me and delivered, was sufficient proof that they returned the item.

They also said that the photos I uploaded, showing the item that was returned to me was different than what I sold, was not enough proof.  The buyer would have to admit that they sent a different item back, and I have 30 days to somehow trick the buyer into admitting it - and if they did admit it - then the case would be reversed in my favor.  I doubt a buyer who got to keep the item as well as get a refund is gonna admit to it...

 

So, yep, I got fucked on this one.  The upside is that in my nearly 16 years on eBay, this is the first time it's happened.

 

Nonetheless, with eBay going to 30-day returns in order to keep TRS, I might just switch to a no return policy on everything.

 

 

Filed an IC3 complaint as well as a USPS mail fraud complaint...just because you should if you intend to claim it as a loss on your taxes, which I will.  Maybe something will come from it, probably not.  But it's on record.  It was "only" $109.99, though with the refund that eBay will force me to pay it's $219.98 that I will be out in goods and money, and I refuse to take it passively.  Will be calling their local police dept tomorrow as well, just for good measure.  I refuse to be fucked.

Brand ho is the way to go.  Another one sold for $42, have one more left.

It's bs. I used to buy and sell a lot of magic the gathering cards on eBay and heard tons of horror stories of people getting empty envelopes, or photo copies, sent to them and not being able to get eBay to do anything because they had a delivered item and couldn't prove the cards weren't sent.

Not the craziest flip brags, but a trip to the jersey section last week basically yielded a dinner out for me and my wife this week.

That's pretty much how it is.  Tracking proves delivery from the seller, and tracking proves return from the buyer.  Whatever happens in-between is not their concern.

The feel when you wake up to sales and the buyers didn't even bother with a best offer.

Like this  @ 80" of clear hand space ce space http://www.metropolitandisplay.com/5-foot-deluxe-professional-grade-double-rail-rolling-z-rack-chrome-black/

or  http://www.garmentrack.com/zrac5bas7up2.html

Yes, I have one in my office. It's fantastic. I bought 10" extenders, which gives you some extra room to hang stuff.

I don't remember much from high school Spanish, but I do remember what "cabeza" means.
