What say the masses: Accept or decline?

I've had a crazy amount of noob ebay buyers lately. Most of them for high prices, and all made good payment and left good feedback.

I to have had 3 last week that I was worried about when they had won the auction, but all turned out well. In fact, 2/3 were first time purchasers. I welcomed them to eBay and made well with our transactions.

It is a shirt sold for $58. Insurance costs about 3%. Even if I take a complete loss on this one I am way ahead by not insuring on this kind of shipment.

Unless you used a much more expensive shipment method (Express or Registered) and without insurance you're SOL. I usually explain that customs can take a VERY long time. Just had a pair of pants shipped via Registered Mail take over 50 days to arrive. Buyer was not thrilled with the duration but happy they did actually arrive.

 

Spoo, are you saying for international items under $250 (no signature required), you just ship normal (1st class or priority) and insure. Hope it gets there as there is no tracking. If it dosnt make it or the buyer says they never got it, you just file a claim, get your money back and refund them? Win-win, unless I'm missing something.

A new eBay buyer bought this shirt.

 

 

 

Forum folks doesn't like this Brooks Brothers shirt...but... (Click to show)

I was getting it ready for shipment that's when I noticed that the shirt had a small hole on the back.

 

 

 

 

The buyer wanted the shirt and he gave a fantastic feedback without even receiving the shirt...

I ship everything either PM or ties and small stuff by PMFREs and insure everything - even if its 12 bucks or something. If it gets lost, you always win an insurance claim, it takes less than 30 seconds, and the payment can be made right to the buyers pp account, no case against you. Its a complete win win. Happened like 5-6 times and is marvelous.

Interesting.... got to look into this for international....do you use the USPS Insrance or the newer "non-usps" insurance offered though ebay?

If a buyer claims that they did not receive an item, the related eBay Buyer Protection case will be found in your favor if you shipped within your stated handling time and provided tracking information (and signature confirmation for transactions of $750 or more) before the case was escalated to eBay.

Looks like the sig requirement was raised to $750?

I told mine it would be $75 to ship to Japan and asked him to confirm his interest in proceeding. Crickets ever since.

Por qua? I recall reviewing and comparing the two coverages. I recall reading the Ship Cover and thinking it covered less. But maybe I misread it.

I would probably send this guy a $5 bill along with his shirt (otherwise you are re-donating)

Turnaround time for a USPS claim to get paid out - 2-3 weeks and several phone calls
Turnaround time for a ShipCover claim to get paid out - 2 days, 3 mouse clicks

I can attest to both of these statements being true.

 

My only Brioni SC find went missing after selling for $289. The insurance said it would take a week to 10 days to process. Had the money in less than 2 days.

Both relevant and persuasive. Noted.

4 unpaid items from two weeks ago's auctions out of about 12 sold.  That's freaking excessive, right?  Plus I think this shirt is cursed: http://www.ebay.com/itm/140963994977?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

  I had a guy back out on paying because he thought I was gouging him on international shipping (it was going through the global shipping program, I have no idea what he was being charged) saying I was charging him for things just so I could pocket it.  The second chance offer which was only $1 less never bit. Now 5 hours before the auction end, the high bidder claims he never bid on it.  Should I cancel his bid or assume that someone will outbid him?  The shirt is at about 40% of what it [didn't] sell at last time.  This person has a 603 feedback too.  Frustrating.
