Any squabbles about shipping first class to Japan vs Priority?

 

Worth my risk?

How much is the item?

I loaned my camera to a friend to use during his vacation to Hawaii and I get it back this weekend. But I grabbed so many nice things recently it's hurting me not to be able to post things up on the ebay. Need to fund more thrifts =(.

I think with priority you get up to $100 insurance automatically. If its a verified address I would ship.

I notice I don't see much from this group up on the SF Marketplace. Do you find it useful at all to crosspost your eBay listings there, or no? And please correct me if I'm wrong.

I post my stuff to here and just found this and posted a few things here. Are there any other places you post your auctions/BINOBOs?


Thanks!



Most items will bring significantly more, even after fees, on ebay. Plus, you can move much more volume there.

Still, there are certain things that I like to sell here and not on ebay.

It's funny but I would say 90% of the people on ebay want the outsole measurement....

Jimmy shoe?

 

 

 

I don't sell many shoes on eBay - have never been asked for an outsole measurement - and if I were, I'd probably ignore and maybe block as that only smells like a later return to me.

I dont get the confusion of outsole measurement posting, guys. Its a legit question to ask I think - why not just take the few seconds to post it in the description to prevent the questions if you get them all the time?

I understand posting it so you don't get bugged, but do you really believe it's a valid measurement? A full shoe size is only like 1/4". You could easily see deviations greater than that simply due to a narrow pointy or wide stubby last.

If it makes someone want to place a bid on an item, Im not going to argue the rights or wrongs of something. Valid in their perception, so a bid is cast? You got it.

There was a pair of those in my GW today. Never seen them before.

I think it's a valid measurement. I'll speak from experience. While hunting for a pair of shell tassel loafers, I came upon J&M's vintage makes. After a bit of research on Google, I found that not all of J&M's tassel loafers measure the same. Therefore, in this instance I asked the seller for outsole measurements to make sure they closely resembled those of my other loafers to ensure a good fit.

I think it might be useful if one was comparing outsole measurements on the same brand of shoes - eg. Aldens you have vs. Aldens on ebay in the same size...Otherwise it's comparing shoes you have to shoes of a different brand you don't have. Regardless I'll include it in the future - as Spoo said it'll take a few seconds.
