Pretty sure Caruso

 

Unless someone lied in the HOF Makers thread. I have this saved for one of the consensus Caruso tags.

For sure Caruso
The tag material is also always a dead giveaway

They're sending him a note and if he contacts me again, I'm supposed to call back and they'll escalate and probably kick him off ebay. I'm a solid internet sleuth so if anything new pops up from another account, I'll know it's him. 

He may have overestimated his reach vs. your reach. I suspect he's about to find out that a lot of doors just slammed shut for him for clothing buys on feeBay.

So. Guy messages me to nickel and dime me on shipping a tie (in fairness, he was overseas and probably getting ganked through GSP), and icing on the cake, to tell me what (he thinks) the comparable item is going for at consignment stores. (he didn't make an offer, just passive-aggressively wanted to share his informal market survey). My answer:

1) Shipping is actual USPS cost.
2) Thank you for sharing your thoughts and observations on what other vendors are charging for what you think are similar or identical items. I have no doubt they will welcome your business.


It's an old lesson that bears repeating. When a shopper (not dignifying him with the title "buyer") starts the dialogue with nickel and diming on your fixed costs, or makes super-lowball offers, the odds are going up, up, up that s/he will prove him/herself a PITA in other ways. Passive aggressiveness, trying to tell you how to run your business or hobby, etc.: odds just climbed a little higher.

I discourage any and all low-information, low-margin, high-nuisance (or risk of high-nuisance) shoppers and encourage others to do the same. They are almost never worth the irritation and time they cost.

On the flip side... I had a buyer in Australia message me about shipping. It was an older listing that I hadn't added First Class to (I ship FC to Australia, Canada and the U.K.). I added the option and he bought it.

I go a little further than that... I will ship First Class Intl to any country on the USPS DELCON list. However, it is available ONLY if they request it. Otherwise, all of my intl shipping is strictly Priority.

not specific to ebay, but it's paypal related. sold something recently via a classifieds thread, the person received it, and now is saying that it's not what they thought it was even though the person agreed that i didn't mislead them and also read the "all sales final" note in the sale thread. i disagree with this . the specific "issue" is around the elbow area of a leather jacket, which he says is a tear, but it's not a tear at all.

my question is whether it's worth going through a dispute as a seller? i feel like i have a compelling case, yet everything i read about paypal disputes is regarding how they always side with the buyer. is it worth the time and potentially the hassle of having my paypal account frozen or is it easier to just accept a return? 13199244_10206542579780100_1080560403_o.jpg 160k .jpg file

to me that looks like the seam is coming undone which is a simple fix.

however, wouldn't the amount of that transaction only be frozen, as opposed to your entire account? depending on your cost to accept the return (shipping costs, time, etc), might or might not be worth the hassle of the paypal dispute. have you tried offering a small refund to cover the seam repair?

thanks for the response. not sure with how paypal freezes things b/c it's never happened to me before. i might offer money to cover the issue, but if he rejects that then i might go down the dispute route. i feel like i have a strong case. however, i know that paypal leans heavily in the direction of the buyer.

Can you think of any keywords/title for this please?

I'm drawing a blank, i've got blouse, kaftan, pleated, bishop sleeve, but there must be a better term for a ladeez garment of this style? oh and it has an open front with a clasp at the neck.

Tips for precautionary measures when shipping high priced items (sold for $300+)? Definitely shipping priority so I was going to upgrade to signature confirmation. Anything else?

Priority + Signature Confirmation + Insurance, in my opinion. I believe you have to go with signature confirmation beyond a $250 sale to protect yourself (from eBay's point of view).
