Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 422

post #6316 of 15831
I've been hit with the same..when I was listing a pair of Gucci loafers!
After numerous phone calls (!!) and so much justification, it made one's eyes water!

I was called by eBay and Paypal..I even scanned and emailed the invoice, that I had saved, luckily, but it made no difference.
I tried again in a few days and for some reason, it worked!

Am I able to retract my counter?

Quick answer is no, you can not go back and accept his original offer. When you made the counteroffer the original offer is gone.

I'm experimenting with this new setup that shows the pants along with the jacket. It only took a few minutes to setup and I'm happy with the results considering the investment was $0. On another note, I have one of those catalogs that a tailor/cleaner would order from - it has some high quality mannequins that are fully adjustable. These could be a great option because size 46+ jackets look like shit on a standard male form. The price is $144, which is steep, and they don't offer them in a tabletop height which is what I really need. Has anyone used one of these before?

This site has some surprisingly decent prices on quality clothing racks....

http://www.storesupply.com/c-517-garment-racks.aspx

I just ordered 2 double racks and 2 Z-racks for under $400 shipped. Compared to Uline, where I could have only gotten 3 racks for that price.

I should have an additional 27 linear feet of hanging space by tomorrow afternoon! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I built one out of spare parts. two tiers. 86" tall. 6 feet long. 1" gas pipe for rods. casters. added 6 inch dowels out of each end to hold long hanging.

Awesome!  I'm a pretty handy guy, but I just don't have time to do that. No spare gas pipe laying around either. So that would mean a trip to Lowes, which always means two trips to Lowes....and a couple other projects started/invented. Time is money....gotta save it where I can.

I didn't want mine to look too "permanent" as my wife isn't as thrilled with my current obsession as some others I've had. 

 

I went thru all of my stuff yesterday and organizing it (all flannel pants, all linen shirts, etc). I've got a bunch of stuff. 

 

BTW, I'm concerned about moths. I sold a new with tag and still unpinned "sir pendleton" wool shirt. When the guy unfolded it, it had 2 moth holes. Was probably there when I bought them from the estate sale, but the board shirts I bought at the same time are wool, also new, but unpinned and have no holes. None the less, since I have 50 plus suits/jackets/ etc hanging around I'm a bit paranoid.

 

Do you take any general precautions for that? I'm going to have the exterminator come out and treat as I don't plan to live with moth ball smell hanging around.

Just give me time; hell, at some point I'll have better than that - while good, his whites are inconsistent.

I was using cedar hanging strips and such, then picked up a box of Moth-Away herbal moth repellent.  24 sachets in a box, and they smell like herbal / mint tea (i.e.: not like moth balls).  $2.99 a box at Marshalls.  I'll put one in an SC pocket, and tuck one or two into a stack of wool sweaters.  Supposed to last a few months once you unseal them from the plastic they come packed in.

Concerning moths... I have about 20 pieces of cedar in the closet with my wool stuff. Hangers, shoe trees, pieces of wood, satchets, etc.

I've read enough about moths, including some heavy science-y stuff from major universities, to be depressed and convinced there is absolutely nothing you can do about moths short of dry cleaning everything. Cedar doesn't work, herbs don't work, freezing doesn't work unless you've got a commercial-grade below-zero freezer, mothballs don't work unless you put them in a closed container where the fumes can build up.

I just keep my thrifting finds separate from my own wardrobe, dry clean stuff if I'm keeping it, and hope for the best.

One of these should do the trick on moths....

Sorry. I'm assuming this has been covered god know how many times, but I couldn't find the exact info I needed.

 

Long story (as) short (as possible): Shirt sold last night (shipping to France through GSP), buyer paid right away and then sent a message saying "please ship to this address instead...." I sent a message back, saying that I am unable to ship to any address that is not associated with their ebay/paypal accounts and explained how the GSP shipping works and told him to add the address to his accounts. I got a response that said, "just ship to this address" and gives me the same address that is not the one it's set to ship to. I send another message, again explaining everything and asking him to add the address to his account and haven't received any response. I dug a little deeper and went to his 'feedback left for others' and noticed that he has a feedback score of 10, but has already left negative feedback for other people. I already have a bad feeling about this transaction. Is there a way to refund him and cancel the transaction without him being able to leave feedback? Should I give eBay a call? Should I just ship to the Paypal address? Help please.

Call eBay. They can walk you through how to amend the invoice with the new address. It is a multi-step process which will involve you and the buyer's cooperation, but it is in fact possible.

Thanks Wes. Things like this end up being hard because of the language barrier. I have sent each message in English and then used Google Translate to translate it to French and I'm not too sure how well it actually works.
