Was tempted to buy a Menards hat that I saw today in Savers, but I didn't. Turns out I was even to lazy to walk 10ft and snap a pic since I was already in line to check out.

Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1885post #28261 of 299936/15/16 at 7:09pmpost #28262 of 299936/16/16 at 5:52ampost #28263 of 299936/16/16 at 12:18pmQuote:Originally Posted by bpk1
Has anyone cancelled a bid simply because the bidder has no feedback/history on their account? I think I'd like to cancel a current bid on the Rolex auction as the buyer has no feedback/no history, and honestly I'd prefer to go to the prior bidder (who has over 1700, 100% positive feedback) just to avoid potential headaches.
Does anyone know if it's against eBay policy to cancel a bid for that reason (bidder having no feedback)? I checked and it provides the following "examples of legitimate bid cancellations":
The bidder contacts you to back out of the auction.
You are unable to verify the bidder's identity, after trying all reasonable means of contact.
You want to end your listing early because your item is no longer available for sale. In this case you must cancel all bids on your listing before ending it.
Slight variation on this question.
I just had someone "Buy-It-Now" on a Fender Guitar Hard Shell case from me. No feedback, "User Since 2016, and they paid $60 in shipping. They paid immediately, but I've got a bad feeling I could end up getting screwed on it and don't want to pay shipping both ways (if they try claiming not as described) for someone who has no history on eBay. It's an older case from the 80's and has numerous scuffs and scratches, but could easily see him claiming "not as described", even though I took adequate pics and explained the condition. It is compounded by the fact that their actual name (says "Sage Man") is not on the shipping address, which goes to a PO Box.
Edit: Nevermind, I've gone ahead and canceled. Someone else contacted me about this case, asking odd questions and expressing interest in buying it. Then, the buyer's account that was used to purchase was set up TODAY and the linked PayPal account matches the eBay account of the person who originally contacted me asking for some more info. I've reported both accounts and I'd recommend blocking.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Probably not the response you were looking for, but when I list patterns like that I don't spend a lot of time trying to determine the official name. Some posters here do, so to each his own. If it isn't obvious to me, then there aren't enough buyers searching for that specific pattern for me to care (as a general rule of thumb). I would use each color in the description and include some other describers like "finely woven, intricate" etc.post #28265 of 299936/16/16 at 2:03pm
I'd use 'micro-check' and/or basketweave. 'Textured' too in the title/description. Agree with what suited said. Even if you did find the exact weave, you're only narrowing your traffic to the listing if the term is somewhat esoteric. So, no matter what, 'check' should probably figure in there somewhere.post #28266 of 299936/16/16 at 2:53pm
puppytooth. you could even add 'variegated' or some such since it has that subtle striping in the twill.Quote:Originally Posted by suited

it's a funny outlook to think that if it isn't immediately obvious then it's not worth the time to try to understand it.Quote:Originally Posted by Reosymes

it's not really that esoteric. btw, basketweave is a plain weave while op is showing a twill. i wouldn't bother typing that but the truth is that the two are so distinct as to be mutually exclusive.post #28267 of 299936/16/16 at 5:50pmpost #28268 of 299936/16/16 at 11:36pmQuote:Originally Posted by datsunfan
Has anybody had any success in finding a package filling a USPS "missing mail" claim? I shipped a tie to a buyer that says delivered, but he says he never got it. He thinks his mail carrier delivered it to the wrong box at his apartment. He's checked his apartment office, their mail room, and left a note with the mail carrier. Anybody got any suggestions I can pass on to the buyer that might help him get the package? I've already filed the missing mail claim, but have not heard anything back from USPS.
From what I've read, I would most likely win if he opens a case against me. I'd like for the buyer get the tie or give him a refund(without it coming out of my pocket). Unfortunately, I didn't get insurance since I've never had any issues with USPS in the past 6 years I've been selling. Lesson learned. Everything I ship in the future will be insured.
Thanks.Quote:Originally Posted by TheNeedMachine
@datsunfan you've saved a ton of money by not insuring everything thus far, so you could continue to self-insure and pay a refund yourself (with the money you've saved) it happens again. With obvious exceptions - items you wouldn't want to shell out for if they go missing (figure your personal threshold and insure stuff over that amount), fragile items, etc. I believe USPS provides automatic $50 coverage for all priority shipments.Quote:Quote:Originally Posted by Pierson v Post
I had someone claim they never received a package that showed it was delivered by USPS. A few days later they "found" it sitting on their front porch (apparently they only enter the house through the garage, and never thought to check by the front door).
If it shows "delivered" you have no worries.
Today (well technically yesterday since its past midnight here), I got a USPS package that was not mine. Right #, but its for a house the next street over. This has happened MULTIPLE times with regular mail (letters), and I've informed the postmaster about it in the past (TWICE). He looked at me with glazed eyes and said he'd look into it. I'm sure it only happens when my regular mail carrier has the day off, and its a substitute. This is the first time its happened with a package big enough I know the letter carrier didn't do it.
Any way, I can see by the label its an eBay item. Whats the best way for me to proceed so NO ONE gets screwed. In other words, I'm assuming the seller is showing delivered and the buyers is going to say he never got it.
Should I inform eBay? (Will they even give a F***?)
Should I walk it over to the guy's house? (Doubt he would do that for me.)
Just take it to the post office? (I'd like to impale it to the postmasters chest with an letter opener.)post #28269 of 299936/17/16 at 3:56ampost #28270 of 299936/17/16 at 4:07ampost #28271 of 299936/17/16 at 7:55amQuote:
When applied to everything in life, yes, you're correct - but I thought it was obvious that we were talking about a very specific context here.post #28272 of 299936/17/16 at 8:22am
Today, I've had my first Ebay "case" opened against me.
Probably should have saw that coming, as it was some dude in Mexico. Low dollar item (shirt). I didn't want to write off Mexico entirely, but I guess I should have. He bought shirt. I messaged them giving him shipping options, which of course, tracking was ridiculously high. So they didn't pick that. (no communication from them, they just picked option). But then didn't pay anyway...so a non-payment "case" was opened At the last minute, they paid for it. So I felt I needed to follow-up and ship to them.
This was back Apr. 28th.
Today, they have opened a case against me:"Buyer requestedA refundCommentsi need my money please"Figures. I'm going to message him, and see if they respond with anything I can use. Like ask him, if the address info he provided is correct, or has changed. Remind them I shipped this out at end of Apr., so wondering why I didn't hear anything back from them, on my messages to them.Any other suggestions?post #28273 of 299936/17/16 at 8:48ampost #28274 of 299936/17/16 at 8:56ampost #28275 of 299936/17/16 at 9:05am
