I would only ever list something as NWOT if I knew for certain that it was.

I'd list it as used, but say that it looks like it hasn't been used in the description.

Could I list this as NWOT or something?

Take that $1900 price tag...

 

 

NWT. Boom.

Not defending anyone either way but often times when I browse on my phone it shows me the US shipping which in many sellers cases is free. After I click on the ad, then it shows me the one million dollars to ship to Canada

Not a scam. I've had this happen a few times and finally he the buyer send me a screen shot. Sent it into eBay and they said they were aware of the issue on the mobile app and we're trying to fix it. I gave the one guy free shipping since that's what it showed and eBay refunded me the cost of shipping when I called in. So yeah, don't block these people assuming they're scam artists. Some of them might be but it's legit and it sucks.

The problem with a glitch in the system is that people will find a way to exploit it to their benefit. One guy became so adamant about the free shipping that I called eBay to report him. According to the csr, he was clearly abusing the system. She could not go into any detail about his activities. However, I was able to cancel the transaction and he received an official warning. One of the three from last week sent me a message stating that others had given her free shipping because of the faulty phone app. That tells me that some people (not all) are using this issue in a way that is the very definition of a scam.

Ebay users have reached a new low...

 

I had a buyer (melocowsk_0) open an item not received case for an item.

 

I checked the item and the item showed delivered on May 20th. So I added that tracking information to the case and called Ebay to close the case.

 

A bit of confusion ensued... As it turns out, the not received case was opened by someone who never paid for the item. I'd opened an unpaid item remind on April 27, and close it on May 1. Then I relisted and someone else purchased it (to whom it was delivered on May 20).

 

This person might be worthy of your blocklists. He's already on mine.

On the topic as well, I keep seeing and even on the main site that the import charges from the global shipping program are 0 for some items which definitely does not sound right. Anything above 20cad and I normally get reemed. Must be another bug

These shoes are listed on eBay right now as "leather oxford shoes".  In one of the pics I can make out "Made in Italy" by someone for Barneys.  Alligator, right?

It could be a bug but I think it's happening for items marked as being made in NAFTA countries (USA & Mexico) or being shipped from a NAFTA country with Country of Origin marked as unknown. These items are exempt from Canadian duty, though GSP should, technically, still be collecting sales tax for them so I guess it is a glitch regardless.

@Pierson v Post: Yes, I saw those too. Unfortunately, a sold listings search suggests that they don't bring much. That said, iirc there weren't many to go on.

You're right, I couldn't find any either (save for one pair of loafers).  She is something else, huh?  (Seller).

Pretty astounding, but it keeps me browsing her listings! Btw, I would totally cop if my feet would fit in them!

Any ideas of maker and what to call these things?

Velvet smoking slippers loafers. Not made by Stubbs and Wootton so not sure of maker...
