What is the cheapest way to send a suit to Canada? Medium flat rate? 

post #8417 of 12032

Cheapest would be First Class.

 

If you need Priority & insured, probably flat rate or bagged. Use the calculator at USPS.com to figure out what the rates would be as it will vary a lot depending on the weight of the package.

Quick double check on something. Church's doesn't label any of their shoes for the US market, correct? So "80G" would always be US 8.5E, correct?

If it has a G width, that is definitely a UK size. There is no G in the US range of widths.

Thanks! Excellent point; certainly something I should have picked up on.

Is there a general consensus as to which ebay ones are the best value? I realize that hollow backs are not good. What else?

I bought this one. I offered $55, they took $60. Someone else told me they offered $50 and settled on $55. Shipping adds $20. 

 

Still for $80, its an effective tool and is one of the best ways to improve your presentation.

 

They're in NJ, I'm in NC, and it was here on the third day.

 

edit....should have added its about a 40 regular so I pin anything 44 or larger. stuff under 38 may or may not button.

In a box.
You can't just put it in a box, its going to fly all over the place and get bent, im asking how to secure it so that it wont bend at all.

I put a ball of bubble wrap inside, and place in the box, slightly over-sized. Then I wrap around the outside of the wanker, dimp, floo, niblick and genitals with bubblewrap. lol. - see crackpot diagram below.

 

If you really want to be safe, or for higher dollar hats, I would recommend double boxing with a cushion layer of bubble wrap between the boxes.

So a buyer returned a jacket because he claimed I incorrectly measured the arm length. I remeasured and my measurements were on point. He is requesting a refund plus original shipping, which I don't mind because of hassle free returns, but he sends me a message requesting return shipping as well. Do you do it, or no? Is it worth the hassle?

I would not pay for return shipping. Say something like this, which could also be used if he opens a case:

"We are very careful when taking measurements so we can be sure they are accurate. Making our customers happy is our number 1 priority. If you are not happy with the item, please send it back and I will issue a full refund as soon as I receive it. I understand that you requested that I pay the return shipping costs, however, it is customary, as well as stipulated in my return policy, that buyers pay return shipping."

If he tries to claim that you should pay return shipping because it was your mistake (even though it probably wasn't), you could mention how many transactions you've had in the last year and that he's the only person to claim that you made an error measuring.

Thanks. I plan to use something similar to this on condition returns as well. It seems as if when buyers can't fit an item, have remorse, etc they use the Item not as described excuse. They have to take some responsibility in the transaction as well right? I don't mind returns, but sheesh, I am not paying for someone to try a blazer on.

If the box is the right size it works. For more sensitive hats, I put bubble wrap inside the hat and around it. Sorry for the snarky comment before. wink.gif

Returns are a bitch sometimes. Especially if it's a higher priced item. But I don;t normally fight over the return shipping if the press it.

 

One of last month's first time customers had a return. I use the automated return program, which takes out 10% for wrong size claims. He bitched a little. I caved (was only $5...not worth it). He came back the next week and bought SEVEN sport coats.
