post #7891 of 17470

You guys's listing typically ends on a Sunday?   Is there a way to set it on Ebay without having a "shop" (besides the whole 3,5,7,10 days option)

That's the way we all do it. Just have to start it on the right day.

Yes, right in the listing there is a selection for where you want it to start, whether immediately or at a certain day/time. The nice part about not having a store in this instance, is that basic sellers can schedule for free. It cost $0.10 per listing with a store.

Yes, I do not have a store and do this all the time. Huge bonus. I take pictures, make measurements, and draft posts spread out throughout the week and then just schedule them to start Sunday evening. Keeps me from destroying my weekends.

Aside: if you do not own a tailor's tape, get one.  Your toolbox tape measure is not for measuring clothing, shoes, ties &c. 

Or you can take the Mythbusters approach. Put a plastic bag in the shoe, fill with ballistic gel. Wait for it to set, remove fake foot, and measure. Probably size down half a size, don't want the shoes to be crazy tight.

Or you could just return them.

You could compare the inner-measurements with past shoes you've listed. Find one with similar measurements and then you could at least list them as "Blah Blah Blah Sweet Ass Shoes Fits ≈ 11" or whatever. Start the listing low and make sure to make a note that the size is worn off but you've compared them to a pair of Allen Edmonds or whatever and that the size approximately matches. Or just return them.

That won't work either.

You click the sell button on eBay. After that its going to say start a new listing or choose and existing template, type in a few key words. Then pick your category. Choose a title give a description some pictures etc. Then choose if you want an auction or fixed price. Then the shipping (choose whatever matches your method) and whether or not you would like to donate some of your proceeds. Then click the review button, then create your listing. Your You're welcome.

:teach:

 

Oh yeah, you might want to add some item specifics too. And I have no idea why you are quoted concealed, my bad. Maybe because selling on eBay is incredibly inconsistent as is finding quality products in thrift stores to resell. Good luck though my man.

 

You're welcome. ;):teach:

 

Sorry, T, couldnt resist after G busted my balls yesterday.

:fu: In my defense, it was late last night... However, the writing rules are changing (according to Purdue Owl of course). Apparently, it is now perfectly acceptable to end your sentences with prepositions!!! So you're alright for doing so.

Aren't you supposed to set them on fire or blow them up somehow?

One cannot get behind such change; colloquial writing is so gauche, what? ;)

Curious what the best options are for shipping shoes. I did a little reading through the thread and it looks like with the USPS shoebox (priority) i'd just weigh out how much they are and the calculator should be able to give a good price. Which option do I select as the method of shipping? Is it just considered a package? and how would the dimension be entered? I believe i read somewhere that your round up to the next whole number for each of the dimensions.

I just do "Priority Mail large package". Dimensions are printed on the box.  7-1/2" x 5-1/8" x 14-3/8".

 

Usually between 2-3 pounds (which is the granularity of the ebay multi-ship postage system).

 

Price based on distance.  My range from just under $7  for east coast to just under $14 for the west coast. I should add that smaller sizes can somethings fit in a flat rate box (or padded bag) and be cheaper, but I've only sold one pair that fit in a med. flat rate. and they were diagonal to diagonal to make them fit.

I think you'd be asking for trouble ifshipping shoes to a customer in a bag.

I just used standard package for the shoe boxes and I've never had on returned. Prices range from $6 to $15 depending on weight of the shoes/boots.
