Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 1987

post #29791 of 30503
I am having difficulty completing listings on my eBay app. When I try to upload photos, only about 30 of the 900+ photos in my eBay album show up as options. Even fewer when I try to use my iPad instead of my phone.
In the past, if I were to edit a photo further, it would then appear as an option. This is no longer working. Any ideas?
Also, my computer freezes when I try to upload from iCloud photos, so that doesn't work.

Here's one for y'alls douchenozzle lists... He placed a bid at $18.45 (+$10.25 shipping) moments before the auctions ended.

Please explain how placing a last-second bid qualifies as a d-move. Bidders can't specify terms.

He won the auction, and is essentially demanding $19 including shipping. Is that not clear from his message?

Totally clear to me. I like how he doesn't say anything else. Real nice.

I resent the invoice. I'm happy to hold out for a week and give him a strike on his record.

Got it. Thought ebay had some new thing where bidders could make binding demands or some other terrible "new feature."

Not on bids but can make "demands" on offers. aka "including free shipping" etc

I had a guy buy a sport coat and then tell me to include a cedar hanger with it. I told him no and he said he does it because a lot of times sellers will. I hate people like that.

Anyone seen or know of these "Silver Collection" Zegna ties?

Just a note on this topic. If you're in need of a large thrifting vehicle, the tax law allows you to deduct $25000 plus accelerated depreciation on a new vehicle with a loaded weight of 6000 pounds.

 

porche Cayenne, Range Rover Sport and HSE, explorer, GL series mercs and many more vehicles qualify.

 

It has to be new, purchased from a dealer.

 

For a vehicle used 100% for business, I think the first year write-off caps at around $34,000 against income.

 

My mileage averages around 60% business so that would be prorated.

 

IIRC, it is in section 179 of the tax code.

 

I wouldn't rush out and by a car to get a deduction, but if you already need something large, and you treat thrifting as a business, then this will shift money from taxes to the truck.

one other thing. If money is tight, the lightroom app on the iphone has white balance and some other features to vastly improve iphone photos.

 

I use Camera+ app myself, but these change all the time so just look for recent camera app recommendations.

 

White balance and exposure management are the two keys to me.

 

You can make do until you can afford a DSLR. But comb craigslist as stuff is constantly showing up there. Once you learn to use it, almost any digital camera will work fine.

100% for me. I have a separate machine provided by work that I never use but it gives me the out.

Awesome advice. However, she is favoring a new Subaru. She seems to think that 4 wheel drive will serve a purpose in the suburbs with 0% chance of snow.

Thanks for the tips.  I just read your link to your photo set-up and that is really impressive.  I am working to improve my lighting.  I did manage to get a pretty good camera deal on Craigslist.  I got a nikon coolpix P530 with a case for $60.  It works perfectly and I noticed an immediate improvement in my pics.  I am still working with the lighting to get the proper White balance.
