Right, and since you still had the tag, I would think you have a case with eBay to have the bad feedback removed.. In the original photo set, did you include the tag?

No contact prior to him leaving feedback. Seriously, I'm going to sell you a fake polo for $30 and ruin my feedback when I have shoes to sell for near $1K. GTFO.


People see some slight anomaly and decide that it must be counterfeit because it is not exactly like the one in their closet (bought 10 years ago). They don't realize that Brooks Brothers often makes small changes. Recently I had an ebay buyer question the authenticity of a Golden Fleece shirt because of the neck label. The label in the shirt is the new one which is in the current BB catalog. He is probably accustomed to seeing the old labels in his closet.

We all know what an authentic Brooks Brothers made in USA ESF OCBD label looks like, right? It looks like this:

I see it just under the photos, right above the Picture Pack option. Should a check box. Are you trying to create a listing from scratch or using the "sell similar"(which is what I'm doing)?

That said, the information I provided for what you would need to do is the info that was provided to me from ebay.... the personal time for Brooks Brothers would be a lot easier. Take a letter you wrote with a picture into any retail store, have them verify it is real and ask the employee to sign off on it. Would they do it.... maybe, depends if you have a hot girlfriend or not I guess.

Best thing is always just to call ebay though and speak with someone to see at least what your options are....
Would be easier to find your cc charge from the rack and have them print a replacement receipt. You'd have a paper trail to show provenance.. As soon as it is shown to have come from nordstrom, you win..

Got to love this one.... jacket had short arms as pictures and measurements clearly indicated in the listings.

 

Unhappy ebay buyer quote:
 I believe that you had an obligation to disclose this (short arms). In other words, while you adhered to the letter of your obligations to accurately describe the jacket, you did not meet the intent to provide a full description.

 

I think they wanted me to put in big bold letters that it had short arms. Who knew providing pictures and measurements was not good enough anymore :brick:

One of my two negative feedbacks in my many thousands of ebay sales was for a jacket which I provided accurate measurements and photos: Negative feedback rating The sleeves were VERY short and jacket can't be worn as is.

My only neg was for the same reason, measurements were provided, buyer left the neg without asking if they could return...

When you guys accept a return for XYZ reason, do you always refund original shipping cost? I know that buyer pays return, but I've never refunded original shipping.  

 

So I had a guy purchase a measly 40$ SC, return it for probably 8$ shipping out of his pocket, on top of the 9$ for original shipping.  Cost him 17$ just to try it out, AFTER I informed him to double check measurements prior to purchasing from a message he sent me.  I dont understand people and why they go through the hassle JUST TO WASTE MONEY!

 

w/e, not my problem, got me fees back, and no money outa my pocket.  Actually made money from the original shipping (.80$)

I will only refund shipping charges if the return was for a mistake I made in the listing.
post #5650 of 18020

Before I post my question, I want to thank everyone who contributes to this thread. I've read almost every single page, and it has helped me out a ton, saving me tons of time performing my own research and helping me avoid making mistakes with selling.

 

I mostly post on the thrift thread (and have asked this question over there and got some advice from 1ofthecoolkids--certainly a cool guy--and txwoodworker), but I wanted to ask some more specific questions about these pair of Balint shoes that I picked up. Balint is a bespoke shoe maker from Vienna.

 

The problem: I don't know the size. Does anyone know what the writing on the inside means? Do bespoke shoes even use a size? The shoes have a different number--one 6.5 and one 7.5--but I get the same inside measurements for both shoes.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

If there is no size, what size would you use based on these measurements? The inside measurements are 11.5" long and 3.5" at the widest part. 9-9.5C (US) is what I am guessing they are approximately, but they were found with a pair of shoes that were 9.5E (US) shoes that I am guessing were from the same donor.

 

If I just have to estimate a size based on measurements, how would you guys recommend labeling it on ebay? There's obviously a concern if you can get a negative feedback for accurately measuring the size of a sport coat....

Sounds like you big-time sellers use USPS for most of your international shipments (?). According to their website, delivery confirmation is only available to 14 countries, so how are you shipping to countries not on that list while still covering your butt against claims and shenanigans? Specifically I'm wondering about shipping a tie to South Korea. It looks like the list of delivery confirmation countries is the same for priority and first class, so is there any difference in seller protection or another reason besides transit time why somebody would choose to pay $23.95 for priority versus $9.xx for first class?

Express mail has tracking all the way usually

Only country I ship priority to is Japan or England otherwise express mail

As a seller, what's the consensus on using EBay's new Global Shipping option - you ship to Ebay location in the US and they handle the international shipping costs? I've a buyer in NZ who's interested in purchasing, but shipping myself would be close to $50.

So for a tie to a non-delcon country there's not a better combo of economy and CYA factor than a padded flat rate envelope sent priority express for $45-ish? I think I may need to revise my shipping options going forward.

Read a few pages back through this thread (or use the search) if you want specifics. It's been covered a few times, but in general it sucks.
