I thought there was probably a fault in the shoes if he managed to rip them, plus i've had a little run of bad luck lately on ebay so i'm probably being over cautious by just paying him to make the problem go away?(had my first neg last week which i just got removed after a ton of messaging)

Today, I get a notification that this periods ($60) invoice is due in two days, Will I be double billed? (Through the automatic billing system)  

 

My account summary states: 

 

Your PayPal payment for US $135.90 was posted to your account on Jul-10-16 20:24:00.

 

 

Latest invoice amount  (Jun-15-16) : US $75.90
New Activity applied to the latest invoice noted above: -US $135.90

payments

-US $211.80

payment reversal

US $75.90
Total Amount: -US $60.00
New activity not yet invoiced: US $60.00
Current Balance:  US $0.00


If you utilize the automatic billing system, do not make early payments as it will cause situations like this. It will rectify itself in time.

It's your call, ebay would probably back you up, but I would probably refund.  Shoe was probably hanging around somewhere hot, dried out the suede.  I had a Ferragamo Studio that came unglued.  Buyer was polite, asked me to only cover the glue job.  Really no way you could have known.

That sucks.
If I were the buyer, I'd be pretty disappointed if something I bought tore on the first use, assuming it was normal use. With that in mind, I'd probably eat the return, if I were you, even though you couldn't have known it would happen.

Hey guys, new seller here and wondering if anybody could provide some insight on a couple things:

  1. My current assumption is that the best way to ship a sport coat would be using the Med Flat Rate box, shoulders flipped inside out and folded.  Is there any other good way to do this that may be more cost effective?
  2. I'm currently holding on to a trench coat which I'm debating on listing right now or waiting a couple months for fall.  Does seasonality usually come into play on eBay?
  3. In what instances does it make sense to list things as "Big & Tall" or does it not really matter?  For example, it seems counterintuitive to list a 42L or 44L jacket as Big & Tall.

 

Thanks for all the help and sorry for the newbie questions!

1. Look into Regional Rate Box A (order online for free). Most SCs will fit into one and it'll be always cheaper than a med flat rate box.

2. Not sure. Look into sold listings, that should tell you how much they're going for. Though, the price will always depend on other factors such as quality of pictures, condition of item, etc.

3. A 42L jacket should listed as a 'Regular' in the item description, and then 'Long' in the jacket length drop down menu. It is NOT a Big&Tall jacket. B&T clothes will have their own sizing listed on the tag.

Thanks! Will definitely check that box out.

RRA is the way to go.  Don't know if it's a trick of being in TX, but always $2-4 cheaper than the same weight priority box or the medium flat rate.

I think being in the middle section of the country helps.  I'm in the SE.  Just did a quick test on some recently sold items and the A box was $1.20 cheaper shipping to Cali but $3.80 cheaper shipping to TX.

Is the regional A box the same size as the medium flat rate?

Not it's smaller. Regional A is 10x7x5. The medium flat rate comes in either 11x8.5x5.5 or 13.75x12x3.5. Also I saw that the regional box weight limit is 15 pounds vs the 70 for flat rate

RRA2  (there's 2 versions of RRA) is 11x2.5x13 just smaller than the Medium.  Weight limit is not a problem unless you start selling rocks.

I don't think you're obligated to but it would certainly be good customer service. It doesn't look like intentional or negligent damage on the users part but looks like a factory defect. Idk how far it will get you but you could suggest he contacts the manufacturer? 

 

IDK sorry man, hate to see a good seller or buyer get screwed.

I finally stepped up and ordered some brighter studio lights.

 

I ordered some Genaray LED lights from B&H which are rated about 5x brighter than the lights I'm using, and run very cool, so no heating up my small basement office space.

 

My other next step is probably going to be to install a background hanger on the wall at which I shoot pictures. The wall here is a light textured gray which is a bit distracting for photos, though not horrible. It's either that or just repainting the walls white.
