Also important to note that the limit for first class international is strictly 4lb, not 4.9lb. Anything over 4 is going priority or express which will run you ~40 or more. Even things right at the 4lb limit are probably going to be more than 15.

Oh thank u for the clarification.  When I was on the phone with USPS she stated 4 pounds xxx$ amount and 5+ pounds xxx$+.  So I wrongly assumed that the 4 pound benchmark naturally went right up to the >5 pound.

 

over 40$ sheesh...

If you have an accurate weight, you can instantly look up the shipping cost on USPS's website. If you're just estimating, I believe it goes in 4oz increments, so plan accordingly.

So I guess I apologize in advance for a terrible auction layout and details.  but here it goes....

Don't worry about it, we all have to start somewhere. I did a quick browse...they are not terrible.

 

One thing I noticed. This is not Hickey Freeman.

THis is H. (Hyman) Freeman and Sons of Philadelphia...no relation. Everyone seems to make this mistake at first. You should change that right away

Can u link me to that page on USPS, the little time I spent on the website required a zip code or providence code in Canada to give an accurate pricing.  Is that info necessary ?  As I assume we dont always have that kind of info from bidders before auction ends.

Also, looks like priority is way cheaper than I thought.

The description and title are fine, but the brand is still listed as "Hickey Freeman."

I have a pair of Cole Haan shoes I no longer wear. I was wondering if I should even bother listing them on eBay since I don't see these shoes bid up for much. I normally offer free shipping to entice buyers but I'm afraid I would end up losing money on these.

 

I sold the Coach shoes (light tan) for $61 and after fees barely made anything.

Question : When you bought these shoes, did you even for a split second in the store, stand there and think that one day you would see a penny as a return on this investment? Or were you just buying a pair of shoes because you like them?

Question on shipping to Japan, any concerns I should be worried about?  An eBay'r registered as a US address bidder asked me if I can ship some boots to Japan.  I emailed him back verifying that he has a Japan registered paypal mailing address as well as his US.  But while I'm waiting for a response, is there anything I should be concerned about when shipping to Japan with customs?  I still need to figure out shipping cost, any recommendations as to how I should ship?  USPS Priority Mail work fine?

I think he used a modified Dividend Discount Model and calculated the instrinsic value of each wear and discounted it to the present value, as well as a disposal fee at the end of their useful life, discounted to present value summed all those theoretical cash flows up and saw a net present value.

Probably not an issue, and I have no idea how you would be able to ask this politely, but can he speak Japanese?

I live in Korea, and generally the stuff I order is under $250 so it fits into Korea's customs exception, but on the odd occasion when I do deal with them, it can be a hassle as my Korean is far from being up to par (and I usually have somebody else talk to them if I can't get an English speaker). Minus the hassle on my end, I've never had a problem the 3-4 times I've had to deal with them. Never given anybody of purchased from any problem.

 

Regardless, I like to think us Americans in Asia (as well as Asians in Asia) make fantastic customers (and given that many sellers don't ship to Asia, easy to build loyalty with).
