Used to throw "Cosby" in the title as well, but I suspect those days may have passed..

Throw "Notorious" up in the mix too!

^^ I sold the same design but long sleeve about a year ago - "COOGI Australia Vintage Colorful Rainbow 3D Cotton Cosby Sweater Mens MEDIUM"

 

Also, anyone recognize this one? I feel like I have seen it before but not popular.

 

 

 

EDIT - Answered my own question as this just showed up...

Wat. So did you steal a zebra? Or buy one? Where do you live that you can just get a zebra? Is it tame? Do they bite? Horses can sense that I'm afraid of them so they try to bite me...is your zebra friendly? Did you name it yet?

Dealing with some Ebay buyers, makes you appreciate those transactions that just happen easily, without any problems at all.

 

Have some woman complaining that I sent her a jacket, where the pocket liner is all torn away from the jacket liner, making the pocket "useless".  It doesn't sound like she's saying the pocket has a hole in it, but rather, that the pocket itself is just separated from the liner.  I know I didn't send her a jacket with damage.  However, I do not have pictures of the actual pockets inside, or where they attach to the jacket - so it will be buyer said, seller said.  We know how that often goes.

 

In her very first email to me, she suggested that I refund her most of the cost of shipping and jacket, since it will cost me as much in return shipping anyway.  Basically,she'd get the jacket for almost free.  In exchange, she'll promise to leave positive feedback.  Told me otherwise I'm losing money.  Sounds like she's done this before?

 

I told her, I will either take the return and refund her money (even though, it seems like she may have damaged the pocket), or I'll refund a portion of the purchase to cover easy repair, if she's interested in keeping the jacket and having it repaired (pocket sewn back to liner).  Told her to let me know.

 

She says she'll just return it then, and is waiting for me to forward her cost of return shipping first, before sending jacket back.  (is that common?)

 

I told her, she's responsible for return shipping up-front, and she'll receive refund for all, once item arrives to me. 

 

She's now arguing with me, about what assurances she has, that I will refund her the return shipping in such a case.  Pretty sure it's Ebay policy for one.

 

Friggin time waster.

Actually if its an NAD or Damaged item and she opens a return on ebay then it is the sellers responsibility to send the buyer the prepaid label. You can do this manually or ebay offers you an option to have them just email her a label and add the cost to your end of month bill. In addition you have to refund any shipping she paid to start with for the item which is done automatically though the return process.

 

If she is returning it for a buyers remorse items (dosent fit, etc) then it is the buyers responsibility to pay for shipping. 

 

Due to returns not counting as defects anymore assuming you make sure everything goes smoothly I would just ask her to open up a return on ebay, then you can send her the label direct though ebay and she ships it back and then you send her a refund.

Don't worry about any negative feedback. If she put that in a message, a simple call to eBay can get any negative / neutral feedback removed. eBay has been very good at handling feedback extortion.

I'm looking at this now. It seems it wants me to upload label for buyer. So I'm guessing I need to be signed up with USPS to create label from them? I've only ever dealt with Canada Post before as I've never had to deal with a return this way.

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.

If it shows "delivered" you have no worries.

Thanks for all the advice. An update on the situation. I got the package back saying the buyer was "no longer a resident." I messaged him telling him about the returned package and he informed me that he was in the process of moving, but his former apartment complex was supposed to be holding his mail. He still wanted the tie so I re-shipped the tie to his new address and it's supposed to be delivered on Monday.

So this is a little weird. I thrifted these true religion jeans because I like making money. They didn't have a the normal tags, but rather a black pouch. It felt like something was inside so I used @GetBlatzed knife to cut it and found normal tags.





Edit: they're bootlegs. Comparing details with other pairs I see slight problems with details. Luckily, they were cheap enough I can easily justify it as an educational cost.

Disregard everything I said as it sounds like you are in Canada? Didn't know that but international sales/returns are different
