Did not pay for item....twice.  No communication after multiple attempts...

Brokerage on $90 shouldn't be that much.

So the tracking on that package yesterday finally updated. 10 days of nothing, but now shows in buyer's state smile.gif

Had a similar slow tracking issue...buyer opened case after 9 days of no delivery (first class) for a dress shirt.  Finally updated yesterday and was delivered...but still seems within normal range time for first class delivery for domestic shipping.

 

All is good

I tell buyers that when I print international labels in eBay, it automatically fills in the values and won't let me adjust it.  Basically I play the dumb good cop and make eBay out to be the bad cop.  Haven't had anyone ask in a while, but has shut 'em up in the past.

One favorite thing about having a store now is the "block bidder" option being right in front of my nose, instead of having to hunt around for it.

 

'tis the season, so I bought my mannequin a new tie. Tired of the old purple one, he asked for something more festive for the holidays but could be worn year-round as well.  He was so excited he insisted I take a photo and post it, so here ya go.

 

 

He's so proud, standing up straight, chest out, shoulders back.  He just stands there all day, like his father did before him, and his before him.

I'll be putting in my resignation at my current career (day job) tomorrow and take the plunge into online eBay sales full time from here on out...wish me luck  :wow:

IMO, if you have a halfway decent career, its a huge mistake to quit a full time gig to sell on eBay...

 

Benefits, thrift shops getting sharper with pricing, if you want to go back to working in a reasonable career then the big empty spot on your resume invites questions, and finally the fact that it is quite easy to do eBay as a side business...

Running your own business is no hole in the resume... If you do it right, that is!

I understand from the surface it looks skeptical, but with other factors at hand, it is a very good decision.  I could break down my pros cons and everything in between, but really was doing this shoutout as a way to gain some encouragement from the community that has given me this opportunity at hand.  Its a way to show others that I am taking a leap of faith, I have a family to support, and responsible for others.  But I have no doubts I can make it happen with hard work dedication and belief. 

 

Many of the members contributed in more ways then they will ever know.  And I am here to give back what I can, because the Mansion of SF and the west wing of Thrift/Flip threads have given me the chance.

What do you mean you can't see the width and length? You need glasses or something?
