Can you send invoices with discount on prices? Used to do it all the time but tried now and it said you can't do discounts except for on shipping and taxes?

You can send a paypal invoice and then mark the ebay item as paid. As far as I know that's the only way around it now.

I just sent an ebay invoice a few days ago and added on a fee. On the bottom under shipping and tax it has "discount/fee" maybe it changed since the "update" 2 days ago, but it worked fine for me abut a week ago

I only had UPS/FEDEX on my Lobb listing for international, guy from China said it was coming up as $350 UPS, FedEx wouldn't even ship.  Is there any way to ship reasonably internationally and still be insured?  I don't see $350 for a shoebox as reasonable, it's 1/4 of a plane ticket to China.  There's a lot of billionaires in China, probably more than Russia.  I've shipped several items to RU so far with no problems, can China be THAT much more sketchy?  Has anyone shipped to China yet?

All the time. For shoes, its about $40 to China by Priority and $50 with express at most.

Yeah, you can add all the fee you want, but if you want to discount, you can only discount up to the amount of the shipping. I do free shipping, so I can't do a discount at all. I usually just paypal invoice or send them a partial refund.

It was UPS that wanted $350, the auction didn't have GSP. I don't know what I was thinking, it looks like if I go Priority International, I can cover up to $1000 through eBay Shipcover even to China, and $5,000 through USPS.  I thought the limits were much lower and/or many countries weren't covered through USPS/Shipcover.

Yeah ended up doing partial refund, not sure why they limit it though

I've an issue. I sold an item (BINOBO) and the guy BIN but still hasn't paid. He also has 0 reviews. Anyways, I believe he either 1. doesn't know how to use ebay or 2. is scared off because I forgot to uncheck the global thing off of that listing.

1. Does anyone know how to make that stupid global shipping program thing go away from ALL of my listings without editing each indiv one?

2. When I try to send an invoice to the buyer to pay there is a prompt that says "you can't send invoice for this order
The item(s) will ship using the Global Shipping Program. As part of the program, buyer directly pays international shipping and import charges to the third-party shipping provider. The buyer will still be able to complete checkout even if you don't send an invoice.

If that's the case, wth am I supposed to do?

When you guys list something as "recent", just how recent are we talking? 

 

I swear, half of the SC and suits that are listed as "recent" look like they're from the 90s, sometimes even older.

1. One at a time

2. Had the same thing happen, had to cancel the whole transaction.  Buyer never did re-buy the thing.

Recent is in the eye of the beholder, it's as over used as NWOT.  I have 4 Oxxford suits for sale, I listed the 2 as "recent" because they have Oxxford's current label, even though they aren't exactly today's style, they're not ancient.  The other 2 I listed as NWOT (just kidding).smile.gif

For suits and sport coats recent for me is 2-3 years or less as styles have not changed on classic items like Brooks Brothers etc until you start getting into the more fitted cuts. For couture recent is current year and season.

I go by the most updated incarnation of the maker label.

Is this a bad time of year to be listing stuff on ebay?
