So my order would be Brioni, RLPL, Isaia.

 

What do you think of the Fallan & Harvey Bespoke suit? It seems weird to me that he has so many bespoke suits for sale including having previously sold the same suit multiple times.

That promotional offer is for auction style listings. Does me no good... dammit.

I thought you just couldn't change the title after a bid was made. I bid on a watch than after looking at some similar ones I am suspecting it is a fake. It just doesn't look as elegant as some of the ones in the same line.

 

Additionally, they can send photos via ebay messaging now as well. A handy tool

It looks gorgeous, I haven't ever had a good experience with a bespoke second hand suit. Usually some weird quirk that makes it unwearable for me. Last one was a 46 inch chest and the waist had been taken in to an insane amount; had to have belonged to a bodybuilder. I think he has a few rich clients who are giving him multiple suits to consign and most of these guys are probably getting half a dozen suits at once.

 

OT that Luciano Barbera jacket he is selling :drool:

Can any of the "big wigs" comment on how their ebay account is set up? I currently do not have it set up as a store and I don't know if it'll be worth it since 1. I don't list many items and 2. I don't see the savings of the final value fees from 10-9%.

With that said, what listing fee options do you choose? i currently have Gallery Plus on all of my listings and sometimes do the 2 category one and sometimes the UK.

Thanks!

same question as namja. have considered joining for just the sale feature and vacation feature, but have been too lazy to figure out the math.

Calculating the value is easy with this tool...

 

http://www.fees.ebay.com/feeweb/feecalculator

 

 

I have a premium store, which includes 500 free insertion fees per month, a free seller outreach call every 3 to 4 weeks.

I use a mix of BINOBO and auctions with BIN option to help get maximum exposure. I rarely use subtitles, I always list with UK option.

 

The 9% fee for clothing categories sucks really, since that is really all I sell. I wish it was more like 5%. No way around that.

I work hard to keep my top rated seller status to get the extra 20% off final value fees, which saves me about $100 or so a month.

If you think that "winning" 2 ebay auctions and not paying is enough to block a bidder from all your auctions, click the spoiler below and block away:

Here's something I learned recently. If a buyer purchases multiple items at the same time and pays together, then wishes to return one claiming SNAD, the refunded shipping amount is prorated based on the price of the returned item. Meaning if you ship a cheap heavy item and an expensive light item and they return the light item, or more relevantly you ship an expensive shirt with a cheap shirt, you're going to get screwed on the refund amount.

So that's only if u have opted into the hassle free return program? I'm assuming what ur trying to say is that, you cannot adjust the return price. Only adjustments made is if you have a % deducted for a restocking fee.

Yes, but the way they refund shipping for multiple item purchases is flawed. It would make sense if postage cost was based on value of the item... you know, instead of weight.

Only two bids so far, hopefully the rest of the watchers (27) will come around. Now if the CdG would follow the same path. (And yes, I do own a steamer)

I just realized I dropped off a medium flat rate box at the post office without the label on it. It was dropped off with a handful of other packages. Is normal protocol for them to hang onto it until someone claims it and is able to identify the contents?

Not sure how that makes sense - - I pay postage based on weight, not value unless I add insurance.  USPS makes their money by moving your 1-pound package from point A to point B (and back again if needed)...if it weighs more, they charge more.  If they somehow were able to charge for shipping based on value instead of weight, well, my irreplaceable family photos would cost $500 to ship and my 300 pound weight set from Goodwill would cost $5 to ship.  Please explain how this makes sense - by this I mean from a real-world business standpoint, not what you think it should cost a/k/a the 5-cent psychiatrist stand seen in Peanuts comics.
