Haven't sprung for a label printer yet. I just buy the two-per-page blanks and run them through my laser printer. You just have to go into Paypal and set your printer preferences to NOT print the receipt portion, or else you're wasting half of the labels. For some reason, that printing preference does not seem to transfer over to ebay (which always wants to print a receipt) so I do all my postage purchasing and printing from my Paypal account.

 

There is a check box for that somewhere. I will find it and report back.

I'm in need of advice for a buyer I'm dealing with. He paid immediately after BIN, had 100% feedback of 436 (albeit private) but had a verified shipping address, so I thought it'd be alright even though the messages sounded a bit rough. Long story short, the buyer is lying and stating there are stains on the shirt; but he wants to keep the shirt and have me pay to have it dry cleaned. Should I call his bluff and tell him I'll accept the return or ignore the message? It was this listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=231055193201&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

Thanks in advance.

Dear tullytra,

Hello there

Is it in gift condition with no damaged such as stain, tear, hole and missing button etc? Does shirts come with extra buttons as well? Email me thanks.


Dear buyer,

Good evening,

The shirt is in gift condition. There are no imperfections. There are no extra buttons. Thanks for your interest.

Dear tullytra,

Can you ship it out tomorrow? Please well pack and confirm that the size Is Small. I plan to gift so I would like to make sure that the shirts is in gift condition with size in Small. Email me thanks again. Once you ship it out email me the tracking information.


Dear buyer,

I have packed the shirt for shipping, and it will go out tomorrow. Please allow for the Post Office to update its tracking information as they are sometimes slow. Rest assured it will be in the mail tomorrow. The tracking info is available through eBay in your purchased summary. Thanks for your purchase, and take care.

Dear tullytra,

I just got it and found yellowish stain on the shirts. You have to see from the bright sun. I think I need to dry clean it before I wear it. I like to keep it as you know If I return it it waste both of time and money. Is there any way you can pay for the cost? It cost me some around $15. Email me.

$15 to dryclean one shirt? Really?

 

I don't do partial refunds. If I get a message like this I just tell them they're welcome to return the item for a refund.

 

I hope this helps you.

I'm sorry to ask if this has been asked again but..


how do you guys send items overseas? I want to send a dress shirt to the UK but priority medium flat rate is calculating $60!! Obviously that's too high so I'm trying to figure out a # so I can re-send the invoice.

Cheers

UK is now participating in the DELCON program. You can send it first class with tracking. However you won't be able to insure it. If you want to insure, regular (non-flat rate) priority is your best bet.

I use Priority Mail Padded Flat Rate Envelopes for this. They are $19.95 to Canada, and $23.95 to anywhere else. They work great for shirts. I don't know if you can get these at the PO, I order them through the website.

I had a fight with my inventory tonight. Not an inventory software.....my actual inventory. I basically have 3 rooms racked (and piled) to the ceiling with jackets and suits. I literally moved every piece twice to find a suit I needed to ship. The damn thing was still in a box on the floor (in the third room) from a return last week. About an hour wasted...I fucking hate that shit.

Perhaps soon I'll get a shipping scale (any recommendations?) so I can do these things at home... Might not make it quicker, but I'd love to avoid using the post office for anything other than international shipments.

I guess you are right. I just try to avoid the hassle from the get go. People think you are doing this all for free.

You can insure flat rate envelopes though.

+1 for Padded Flat Rate Envelopes for international. I specifically offer combined shipping on shirts to international buyers. I refund one of the shipping charges if they buy two. I attribute at least 10 to 15 extra shirt sales per month to this.

This is my answer to the "Can you ship it to my country cheaper" question. "Hell, yeah! How about half price?"

The padded envelopes are much stronger than the paper flat rate envelopes and can hold three smaller sized shirts or thinner fabric shirts. Three large-sized OCBD's may not work.

Exactly this. Those padded flat rates are a blessing for most everything.

Hey guys, could I get a photography/lighting critique?  I'm using three 60W 5000k CFLs (at least one more would probably be helpful) and taking pictures using my Iphone 5S camera.  I've been struggling with too much yellow in the pictures, as the wallpaper in the room I'm working in is a very faded yellow (haven't gotten to refinish this room yet.)  Any suggestions would be great.

Can someone tell me what color these shoes are? I can't tell if they're burgundy/maroon/oxblood OR brown? I even used that app Wes told me about and nothing

Those are Allen Edmonds right? What are the numbers. The catalogs will tell us the actual AE color.
