LOL...

 

 

I just refunded someone shipping cost and let them keep the item. I missed the size tag in a pair of Lulu shorts and called them medium (they were large).

Is that guy on drugs? I wonder about people like this, is their IQ really low, or do they think they're dealing with someone that has a really low IQ? By what logic does it seem alright to receive a free pair of shoes AND get paid for keeping them...

I always make them do it, just so the person has to return it within xx days, or case closed.

But yeah, that person's request is a bit much.

I hope I have chosen the proper or, at least, a suitable thread for my little question. Either way, I hope someone knowledgeable would be pleased to answer.

I traced the RN of a shirt I found to a "Saks and Company". Does any here know if this Saks and Company is related to Saks Fifth Avenue?

He didn't know the seller with his name across the photo was just protecting his pictures.

The Gucci jacket looked fake??

Every jacket that you see modeled on a person or a form has likely been pinned in some way, shape, or form. I don't see anything unethical, assuming that you are also supplying measurements for the garment. That said, it does open up the potential for a slew of returns.

Yeah, the returns thing concerns me too, but in the long run, I think better looking photos will pay off better. Even the mannequins in the mall are all pinned in the back. I think you have to be reasonable though, if you're dramatically taking in the waist of a jacket with very little waist suppression, there's a decent chance your buyer will be disappointed. That being said, since most people don't have 10 different sized mannequins, you're gonna have to do some nipping and tucking in order for garments to drape correctly on the form.

Of the thousands of items that I have listed and sold on eBay, forums, and local web markets, I have yet to have something returned because it didn't look like it did on the mannequin.

Well that settles it I guess then. I haven't sold any clothes on eBay yet so I have zero experience.

What do you do when you are at a tailgate party and you don't have any shoe trees around to show off your footwear?

Dumb question, but I listed something as shipping via UPS expecting to sell within the U.S. I also apparently opted to sell via GSP. I got an offer from a buyer in Sweden and would like to accept. Do I need to send to the KY GSP handling center via USPS or can I do so via UPS? I don't really have any specific desire to send UPS but when I listed I wanted to be sure I was covered with signature confirmation since this is a higher dollar item.

For those that use GIMP to edit photos. Tip of the day. You can have GIMP do Arrows automatically. I figured this out after a while of drawing crappy arrows by hand.

 

My first try Example pic:

 

 

 

Looks like it has potential.

I'm not sure about how much eBay strictly enforces "shopped" images. I typically point out flaws or sometimes do something like the above.

I use GSP all the time and I don't see any reason not to ship UPS. Just make sure you copy down that huge ass reference number correctly. I think as long as it arrives at the magical kingdom that is Erlanger, KY, you should be ok.

That looks like WAY too much work. Why don't you just take a follow up picture closer of the label?

I've hit the 12 pic limit? :D

 

Yeah, I don't do it very often. I rarely call out detail like that. However, I have been pointing out holes and such with shakey hand drawn arrows. With the plug in (which photoshop already has built in, but GIMP doesn't) you click the start and end point, choose the arrow function and click okay. I get faster the more I work on the editing part of the photos. Less editing is better though as it does take some extra time for sure.

 

I'm all up for better ways to clearly call out any flaws that may be there...
