Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 293

For $10 I'd take the return. It's not worth risking the negative feedback over, cost of business and all that.

(It still sucks)

Great.  Decide you don't want something or spill a bunch of crap on it (I'm assuming thats what happened), get your money back.  Thanks ebay, for reminding me that people suuuuuucccckkkkk.  Why is there even an option to not allow returns?

It really does suck man. I have had a few returns on high price items and it blows but it is the cost of doing business on eBay. Pour yourself a scotch, accept it, and move on.

Got another fleaBay member for the blacklist. I don't know if they're on yet, but "peak_products" is somebody who I'd try and avoid. They buy/sell small hose clamps and fans for like $5 a pop to boost their feedback to over 1k, and then use the account for scamming. Pretty obvious history of buying the same, or close to the same, products from different people at the same time (i.e. Oakley's, iPhones, Allen Edmonds) then trying to return the one with any type of defect, real or otherwise, to the wrong person to get a nice item and their money back. That's just from what I've gathered from their feedback history.

If it is returned with stains that did not exist previously, you just tell ebay it was returned not as you sent it out. You may have to provide pictures, but they will (are supposed to) cover you.

That's good news. I usually take several extra pictures of my auction items "just in case".

On a different note, how many of you post your auctions on tumblr, pinterest, etc? I think it was mentioned recently, but I wanted to visit the topic again (6 of my sales yesterday came from pinning some of my own auctions - it pays to have 800+ followers, apparently)

I do some on Pinterest, but I have very few followers. I need to spend more time working on that. I have no time to work on that.

I have no words of advice, but that is a very, very pretty tie!

I tried this for a while, but have like 4 followers so it didnt really pay off.

I wish I had that many followers on tumblr - I'm just getting started there.  I'm up to 832 followers on pinterest - http://pinterest.com/DanielNM/grownup-style/  777 following just that board, 832 following everything.  

 

Fair warning, it's not all #menswear or even #styleforum approved.  Although I try to avoid the sillier stuff 

(merovingian knot, anyone?) there is a well expressed love of tweed, wingtips, and bow ties.

That seems like a lot of work, time, and expense to get ones feedback to over 1100 then start scamming people.  I've seen sellers who buy a lot of "best chocolate chip cookie recipe" listings at BIN for 25 cents (recipe delivered via email) to get to over 100 transactions with 100% feedback and then start ripping people off, selling counterfeit junk etc...but buying/selling to get over 1k feedback, over the course of 9 years and 9 months that they have been on eBay - that can't be right.  Might have had a spate of bad luck buying, and I didn't really see where they are buying from one person and returning to someone else...not sure how you divined that from their feedback - did this buyer pull something similar on you?

I mentioned it recently...because I do have a Tumblr with only about 45 followers (at least 1 of which is a SF member) and things do get reblogged and looked at a bit via Tumblr but no sales resulted as far as I know.  Also have a Pinterest, zero followers, only 1 repin ever - sort of pointless for me to keep it but I'll probably still update it when work is slow or whatnot.

Ah - so you pin stuff from all over and toss your own goods into the mix.  Hmm - maybe I ought start doing that - right now all I pin is my own stuff on eBay (then periodically delete everything as items sell or end, and newly pin my current active items).  Apparently I'm not Pinteresting enough.

This and tumblr are enough for me. I have a link to twitter from my posts, but i never look at it. Pinterest just cant get my attention.
