Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 328

This one Fucking jacket I have on Ebay must be " cursed".
Third Buyer to Flake on this Kiton...in as many weeks.



Hi

I would like to apologise for the delay with payment and contact.

I've had a small car accident today. It was cause of my fault and since I didnt want to loose discounts on Car Insurance Ive paid the guy and had to pay also my cars repairs. Im now short on money.
I can't please you to wait for the money 2-4 weeks, so I would like to please you to cancel this transaction. You can start the procedure of "cancel a transaction", I will accept it and then you will get back all the fees and so on from ebay, loosing nothing.
I think I will be able to pay for it but it can even take 3-4 weeks probably and I don't want you to wait for the money.

Kind regards
James

Curious as to how many people on here do smoke...I need to quit already


I smoked for close to 30 years, and just quit last September on my wife's birthday. My children staring at me pitifully asking why I wanted to kill myself every time I lit a cigarette finally broke me. I tried the patch, the pill, hypnosis, this ear pressure (like acupuncture), electric cigarette and nothing worked. Finally i just quit and my children and wife cheered me on almost every day. It was rough, but I made sure my first month I was always near my wife and kids so temptation stayed away. I still get cravings to this day, for instance tonight I am at a sales conference and am fairly trashed and saw 2 hot girls going out to smoke... It was very hard not to follow biggrin.gif

 

I think Cold Turkey is the only long term way to quit this terrible habit, I wish you luck and encourage you to try. While I did put on ~15 pounds, I can actually climb stairs without panting and my two mile run time is now better than my first P.T. test in the Army at the tender age of 17. So it is definitely worth it.

Nice!  30 freaking years!  It's amazing, my mom quit at 40 years of age (cold turkey - I was one of the pitiful staring/nagging kids), she's now 75 and in great health.  I'm still looking on this thrifting thing as a (semi lucrative) addiction though.  I can't pass by one on my way home without making a pass.  Those Kiton's are a better rush than nicotine I bet...

I think that is what I have replaced smoking with, my wife added up what I have spent in thrifts in the last 6 months or so and it equals over $1000. Of course spam[1].gifBrianPore's consignment service will make more than double that back for me /spam[1].gif

 

I love it, I have improved my wardrobe and still made money which is much better than the $65 a week I used to spend on cigarettes. I am still trying to improve my wardrobe, so don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

I need to quit again. In the past I quit for nearly 10 months while my wife was prego. But as soon as the baby came, it was back to the cigs. I have a box of chantix sitting in my cuboard that I need to start...I fear I'll miss the guilty pleasures too much.

I smoked for about 10 years and quit 6 years ago. I did it with toothpicks. Every time I wanted a cigarette, I would have a mint toothpick instead.

I'm still a dirty smoker, but have been outdoors-only for the past several years so that helped me cut down quite a bit.  Do need to quit eventually.

  

So here's a new one (on me):

Received a best offer, after the person had made two offers minutes before that were automatically declined.  I accepted the best offer, then got a message saying it was awaiting the buyer's confirmation.  I thought "Huh, in the past it was considered sold when I accepted the best offer.  Did eBay change their policy to now give the person an out?"  I checked and the buyer has zero feedback and is in the Arab Emirates.  My item only ships to the US - no idea how they were even able to make an offer.  I figure they cannot pay for it since I don't offer shipping to the AE, but I see I can still revise it with the pending offer and add shipping to the AE for whatever amount I would need to ensure it's tracked.  

 

So my quandary is: do I leave it as-is and it eventually resolves itself as unsold and I can re-list later?  Or, do I edit the listing and offer shipping to the AE (and if so, by what method to ensure tracking and perhaps insurance as it's $145 + shipping)?  It would be a nice sale, but I'm a bit leery of shipping to the AE with a zero-feedback buyer.

Help?

I cannot decide whether this D&G striped suit is black or navy with a purple stripe? The 3rd picture has the suit on top of a BLACK isaia suit to show contrast.

Does anyone know color codes for D&G? Spoo???


Cheers

I would say that is black.
post #4916 of 12008

Looks black to me too. Sometimes the lining can be a good indicator too. A lot of times a navy jacket will have a blue lining.

 

Also, I love this app for the iPhone.

I third the black.  I have the same problem with blacks/navy blues, so I always take the item outdoors in the sunshine with another item I know to be black, and compare side-by-side that way.  Also, navy blue with a purple stripe doesn't sound like a common combination except in pimp suits (though, it is D&G so who knows)...

Self-quoting because I figured this out - the new "eBay Offers Beta" allows you to accept multiple best offers and the item remains for sale until someone confirms/pays for it.  I don't know what "confirms" means or how that differs from actually paying for it.  Anyway, makes sense now.

So just because someone submits an offer and you accept it, it's not actually sold? That's some bullshit... I understand the idea, but why wouldn't buyers just spam low ball offers on everything now?
post #4920 of 12008

It just forces them to pay for it. That way you don't except an offer and wait weeks for the buyer to fall off the face of the earth and never pay. Works pretty nicely. I actually had one instance where I accepted an offer of $20 on a pair of cuff links. Then about an hour later someone came in and did the full BIN on the same pair before the original buyer had confirmed and paid. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
