You can't put items on sale if they've recently been listed (within the past 4 days) or if they'll end before the sale ends. The problem is that you create a sale listing, mark the items and then find out some don't qualify...but they're counted against your 50/day limit anyway.

I created a sale to start in the morning that had items that didn't qualify (they were listed a few days ago), and now I can't create listings for other items that do qualify...I get the same error message.

I've messed with it before and found the entire process to be a headache. Am I doing something wrong?

Must be an international policy. I don't have any issues with more than 50 items. I listed 140 or so on Thursday. Of course maybe store subscribers get a larger allowance.

What would you do if you ordered a pair of size 10 US shoes and recieved a pair of 11uk? Should I expect the seller to pay for return shipping?

No.

I'm discovering that, as a seller, I need to start telling people to fuck off more often. I expect the same treatment I give others and I have no reason to.

And expect bad feedback. In regards to return shipping, you can't expect him to pay, and you can't make him, but you can ask as he shipped the wrong size.

+1. If it were my sale and my fault the buyer wouldn't even have to ask, but that's not every seller.

Got a weird request from a buyer who messaged me on a BIN item and asked for a price to which I agreed.  Then he sends a message saying that he would like to pay directly through Paypal and not through eBay, to which I disagreed.  He sends me another message saying that he has reached the maximum buying limits on eBay for this month.  Is there any such thing?  Have you guys ever have come across something like this?

As others have said, 100% not worth it and post up the Ebay item number and you'll get some better advice as what to do with it...return or toss in trash. Also what size are you?

Just trashed it. I guess learning a lesson for $10 isn't too bad. Im a 42R.

So, whats the thoughts on posting non summer clothing now that summer is close... (100+ in So Cal today where I am)

Who's been doing it long enough to really notice a difference, especially if they sell international? Would you really get more for that tweed jacket if you waited til early fall?
Do you just hold off on the heavyweight items? I still have a lot of fall/winter items I didn't get to post, so trying to figure out if I should wait on them or not.

Fall and winter items are a tough sell right now even at minimum bids. I would definitely advise to store until at least Labor Day. A Harris tweed right now might bring $20 or even get no bids. In the fall it will get $80 average easily.

Of course there is the other side of that coin. It's a great time to snag the good fall/winter stuff on eBay from sellers who don't know to hold off.

+1 Ive got like 70 tweeds, cashmere sweaters, cords and outerwear stashed. Wait on them.

If you're returning an item because it isn't as described in the listing, the seller is responsible for return shipping charges.

I listed an item and someone buys it a few hours later, 50 feedback, 100% positive. They don't pay and I open a case after a week. They respond by saying "U accepted best offer to quick did not want." My pessimism toward the average person is growing by the day.
