Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 315

post #4711 of 15359

Question about feedback removal. So the one problem buyer I've had is from Canada. He claims he didn't receive an item and I gave him a full refund. I shipped it of course but didn't get a tracking number. Lesson learned.

 

But on the negative feedback he claimed he had been waiting over a month but really it was 13-14 days (Sold Aug.1 Feedback left on Aug.14th with 2 day handling time). Obviously he lied as well as put crappy DSRs are every section when, if he didn't receive the item, he could only say that about 2 of the categories at most. Since he lied and but bad DSRs on subjects he couldn't have known about if he didn't receive the item (like item as described) does that warrant a feedback removal? He's my only Neg and while I really hate the guy for the annoyance he's been, I just wanna move past it and get that blemish off my record.

Bravo! I saw when you pulled that thought it was money.


Anyone here also sell on etsy or another site? Do you cross list? I.e. have the same item listed at more than one site? I'm thinking more about BINs rather than auctions.

Also... Sometimes with OBO you can start with a price that's top of the scale for what you'd like to get but hope someone offers a reasonable, non low-ball price. How do you set your no OBO price? Top of scale or pretty fair?

No, I don't put that I am open to offers. The problem with doing that is that it is making it clear that the BIN is not the real price.

I try to put a reasonable BIN on an item. Then I usually take a look at any items which are hitting the 30 day rollover and will typically do a price reduction on those.

If you have a store the "sale" feature is really nice.

People really need to learn to price their auctions correctly, I just won a "Like New" Madison cut Saxxon wool suit for $6.01 shipped... This is a guy with 145 feedback and a lot of that is selling, so not a newbie mistake. It will cost him more to ship it to me than I paid for it... This is why as I start selling I lean more towards the BIN pricing maybe a OBO with a auto accept for a reasonable price.

 

This week I have won a pair of LL Bean khakis for $2.07 shipped, a NWT Indianapolis Colts t-shirt (not a fan just saw it for $3 and bid and won it for $3.25 shipped), a RL "P" sweater for $1.25 shipped, and a Givenchy polo (eBay standard price ~150) for $5.83 shipped.

 

The RL & Givenchy are going to reneg and not ship it to me so I will just give neg feedback and move on, but it wouldn't be necessary if they priced it correctly. It's not like I am low balling either, the RL I bid $20 but I was the second and only other bidder so it never went past $1.25.

 

My first shirt I sold for .99 with $5 shipping and after thrift store cost, ebay fee, paypal fee, and shipping I lost over $5 on a cheap little shirt. I got scared at that point and haven't tried to sell anything again (re-starting on some cheaper goods soon).
 

So while I was bragging a little lot, I am also trying to show you how not to run your auctions unless you have a ton of stuff and are using it as a loss leader.

icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gifNICE SCORE!!! Those sell for $100+ easy with good pictures. If arms and legs are on the longer side Saxxon's can bring $150 with a little time...

If that suit comes in and has an inch or so to let out at the waist, I will GLADLY double or triple your money.

Actually, PM inbound.

Please tell me someone else is having trouble with the "brand" drop down list on ebay. Trying to list a sport coat and I keep getting what seems to be a list of women's jeans brands to choose from.

Same problem last night. I think I got the drop down when listing some shirts and shoes, but not for suits and sport coats. Come to think of it, I did get it sporadically for suits and coats. When I did, it had way more options than normal. I was listing a Burberry suit and Burberry, Burberry London, Burberry Brit, Burberry Prosorum, etc all came up. Maybe they're adding more options?

Nice catch. That suit retails new for $1098.

I don't bother to auction anything in the Summer. ebay is slow now. Last Winter I was starting almost everything at $1 and was making more than I would have made with BIN. When two or three people hook up on an auction they can pay much more than what an item (IMO) is worth.

sold a guy a nwt rrl belt and he just sent me this message, he must be off his meds. the belt in question http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300946052845&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123

Dear theverybesr2013

I want you to know that I was not at all happy when I received the belt I purchased from you.

Advertising this belt as "NEW WITH TAGS" was a total scam. There are TWO marks in the leather showing wear where the belt had been worn...and the marks even show up your very own images! Now, I question whether the belt is an original or a fraud!

I look forward to your response to this issue at your very earliest convenience. I want to hear your side of the story before I report you eBay and give you the sorriest of sorry reviews one has ever seen since eBay went into business.

Thank you,

Earliest convenience is 45 days from now biggrin.gif What marks is he talking about?

Also, you have very feminine hands.

Wow, how do you get so many crappy customers.... I never really have these issues unless I miss something obvious on an item and they i just say sorry and take a return.

 

I would want to say 'if you saw the issue in the picture then why did you buy it you stuipd idiot", but would say "Very sorry there is an issue. I strive to not only sell top quality items, but have top quality customer service. Due to your displeasure with the item, I would like to offer a full refund including original shipping. Please send me the item back and you will be credited asap. Again sorry for any issue this might have caused. Best Regards, xxxx"

This has been the slowest month of the year for me - the summer as a whole being slower than the months preceding it. I would assume this is typical since the bulk of my sales come from clothing (suits/blazers) that would be more comfortable to wear during the winter months, no?
