The seller has to cancel the auction, and list it without GSP. There's no way to switch it, when you've first listed it.

I can tell you, being from Canada, it really sucks. With USPS/CanadaPost I sometimes get item with no customs or tax, but GSP... Man...

What happens if I ask seller to send through normal USPS?


did you try with lower value?

Not sure what you mean by lower value?

So I'm about to list this John Smedley polo and it has a cool feature to the placket with this vertical seam that allows the collar to V easily when worn open. Is there a special name for this or would you just call it a V neck polo?


Also, do all John Smedley polos feature sea island cotton or just certain ones? The manufacturer's label makes no mention of it, but I know lots of Smedley stuff is sea island, and this shirt certainly feels like it.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Edit: it is sea island cotton, it was under the Smedley tag.

What's the condition and size of the polo?

Jos. A. Bank Signature Gold Navy blazer sport coat jacket silver button 40L Zegna

I've sold those for $50-$75 before.

Some may argue keyword spamming, but based on the tag, it's legit.

Also, the lining is blue, the coat is probably blue.  If you're worried about that happening again, take an additional pic with that + something black wool to show the difference.


Thanks for all the help with this, I pointed out that the lining was blue, and then wen to Jos A Bank site and the Signature Gold with Silver buttons is not sold in Black. He replied fair enough and said we were good! Thank goodness there are some standup people out there who are not afraid of their mistakes.

Yeah, sometimes people come across as dicks, then when you politely point out to them that they're wrong, they either clam up, or apologize.  I've seen it both ways, and of course, the third option is to continue to be a dick, which also occurs.

Anyone have an issue with buyers not leaving any feedback even after politely asking for it?

That's not really an issue...and I've never asked for it. They do or do not on their own accord. They are not required to.

I typically don't give feedback unless the buyer does. Probably stupid and why I have a low feedback score, but w/e.

Oh and this happened this week, no big deal to you guys but for a small timer like me it was nice.

Congrats, dude!

 

I got mine back this week after two months of no discounts. The horror...

This... I will also add that requesting feedback *might* prompt more negative feedback if the buyer perceives you as pushy.

 

I once had a somewhat negative transaction as a buyer, and wasn't going to leave any feedback. But then the seller sent two or three messages requesting feedback. So I obliged, with a neutral feedback...

Setting apart the fact that "current label" was mentioned in the listing, thus, indicating that it was a recent item, I don't think that the "how old is it" question is entirely horrible.

 

E.g., one of the things I occasionally search for is PRL sport coats. When I see a photo of a jacket that looks like it might have a low buttoning point, or it might just be the camera angle, I'm immediately on the lookout for label pictures. If I see that it's a PRL label from the 70s, I assume that the buttoning point is not down to a camera angle issue, but is actually a low buttoning point.

 

So, yes, in the case of an already stated "recent" item, it's an odd question. But I don't think it rules out the usefulness of the information in all cases.

The amount of bullshit "recent" on eBay is ridiculous though. People seem to think anything made this side of 2000 is recent.
