What do I do here?

Call eBay...

Global Shipping Program is horrible. Awful. And most sellers don't even know that they're using it, as a default. Nor do they know or see the extra fee that we're forced to pay. Worst part is that it's SO DAMN SLOW. 

 

It's incredibly frustrating to see very nice stuff on Ebay (that you know will be sold within the hour), and see that they're using GSP. Right now I'm buying, and have to get the seller to refund so that we can go for other options (USPS/Royal Mail/etc.) 

Once the sale is done you can't get out of shipping via GSP without relisting. It's a nightmare but there's not much you can do about it.

Also, a better way to go about buying would be to contact the seller first and see if he/she would be willing to add a different shipping option. It's kind of rude to buy and then make the seller refund/cancel/relist.

That factory is owned by Individualized Apparel, the parent for Corbin, Tom James and more. No Incotex tie in. Just a copy.

Most coats will fit in the RRB flat box.

 

bigger items like shearlings I ship in an 18"x16"x6" procured from uline.

Took forever... this number should be twice that if everyone actually left feedback...

Some people here are very good at it.

Agreed. And click they do. I always click on the negs, just to see what it was that tripped somebody up. Kind of like reading NTSB reports. Until this incident, I may just have been lucky, as the many times I've had to call eBay, I've been very happy with the result. The reps here in the US have been really good, and this is the first time I haven't had the issues resolved with one call or maybe two. Anyone have tips on how to make sure you get a US rep as opposed to the offshore center?

I do not know cameras, but want to upgrade from iPhone for my eBay listings. Would a Canon EOS be a decent starting one? I'm looking at one for $25 at GW right now.
Nvm. It's film only.

Gents,

 

Anyone have experience with an SNAD type case under the new "return request' system? A buyer is claiming the color of the item in the pictures doesn't match the item.  I had supplied 5 pictures that were all taken in natural light... Do I have any hope in resolving?

I think you do, when it comes to color. If you listed the item as 'Red' and the item is indeed red, you're good (depending on the good graces of the CSR, of course). Everyone's computer monitor is calibrated differently and there's no way to guarantee that the exact shade of red looks the same on your monitor and theirs. Search this thread though, I'm sure I've read posts that confirm this.

Appreciate the help! I think I found the post with Fueco that  you were referencing about that.

 

In my case, it was a navy chino that I listed as "blue." The return reason was super vague though without indicating what the discrepancy was (ie too dark/light). Will have a chat with CSR and report back.

Need to shift a 3-piece DJ I never wear.

 

How do I take photos of black barathea? I've Googled the basic photography advice and the results still aren't great.

 

1) The macros. I have one of those tissue paper lightboxes.

 

2) The full shots.

 

For both I have access to a range of softboxes, diffusers, lights etc. and a mid-range DSLR with a range of lens attachments. The sunlight is aggressive here in New Haven; even in the hour before dusk I can't get acceptable photos. So I'm thinking indoors with good lighting. 

 

Any advice much appreciated.

Quick question for those of you who sell shirts. How much is value impacted when someone wrote their name on the inside of the collar? I found a couple shirts that are otherwise good resale candidates, but have the names of the original owner written on the collar. Obviously they aren't visible when the shirt is worn, but I imagine value suffers at least somewhat due to the writing. Wondering if they are still worth the time. Thanks in advance for your help.
