In the description I stated I wasn't sure if it had been used. I said I wasn't sure if it was but it looks like it's in great condition. Never said it was new or never used. This person gets the item, says nothing for two months, then sends this message that's not even proper English out of nowhere. Am I gonna get screwed on this?

I hate that his/her first resort was to impugn your integrity. That is enough to make me want to crush his/her soul.

User name please. MY BBL needs more fodder.

Just curious about this bidding history on this item. 

It shows up on my side going from initial $49.00 list weeks ago to one other bid by one "other" bidder who magically bid at .55 below my max just below close, pushing me to win at my absolute max bid at the absolute last minute. What a miracle! This looks very odd to me at best, and I'm going to ask that it be looked into, I'm sure you will understand. No other bids between initial listing and one .55 below my max just before close. So coincidental!  
If this is not a coincidence, reverse the purchase immediately. Otherwise, eBay is being notified.

I hope you reversed the sale before you shipped, and blocked her ugly @$$. I already have! She sounds like a pluperfect nutcase.

(sigh) The pain of being a feeBay seller, even a hobby seller ... when you get a decent (not great, but decent) offer for an item that's been sitting on your shelf for months, you check out feedback left by the offeror, and see he is a possible PITA. The struggle is real.

(Not posting his ID because I'm not SURE he's a PITA, one of his FBs left had a whiff of PITA-ery. So, no shoes for him.)

Anyone recognise these off the top of their head? On a pair of pants.

Number looks like Luciano Barbera to me, but that second tag isn't like anything I've seen on their clothing. Maybe production for another retailer?

I just shipped item #99 for the week. As my wife put it, "He shoots he scores!"

Congrats! Try not to even worry about which 3 people are going to want to return their stuff. :nest:

It helps that I'm in the middle of the country so First Class is surprisingly fast. I imagine it would be much worse coast to coast.

I suppose if I were the buyer, in an ideal world I would have the option of either paying a lower rate for first class, or a higher rate for priority. But the ease of shipping everything in a small flat rate box is worth it for me. I assume if a buyer were concerned about a few extra dollars in shipping, they would just lower their offer by the difference, but I might be giving them too much credit, ha. Obviously buyer behavior can be irrational and manipulated through marketing a lower shipping rate.

It seems like the last three or four times I've won a small item (tie or square) that has shipped First Class, it always comes from the East Coast. Never from here out West where it would take only a day or two. 

 

But I'm with @My Main Man, as a buyer I'm looking for the cheapies and I balk when I see a $10 shipping fee on a $20 tie.

Moving to the middle helped my tie sales volume.

I pre-package all my ties after photographing. Each tie is folded and in a plastic bag, then placed in a 3" x 4" x 6" box. I bought 500 on sale for $.21 each so my out of pocket for shipping for the box, the label, and the bag is about $.35 per tie

 

1st class is the free option, and I have a priority and express option. No one has bought the upgraded shipping since Christmas 2014.

 

For international, the default is priority, but I have a 2nd option of first class for Canada, UK, and Australia. Over $50, I don't do 1st class international except to Canada.

 

Each tie, as packaged is either 4 or 5 ounces. When someone buys 2, I open the box and combine them. 2 ties in 1 box is 9 ounces.

 

I don't use Tissue paper, even though it is nice.

 

I got two ties wrapped in Tissue paper yesterday shipped in a UPS box from Linda. The box got wet, and the outer tissue was damp, but luckily, it didn't get to the ties.

 

This is why everything I sell gets put in plastic.

 

Its just managing variables. A contingency plan against the unexpected.
