Thanks. I was going to err on that side as well.


The item in question:

 

 

 

 

The button stance confuses me a little bit though. It's 2 button and the first buttonhole rolls...

I've noticed that. Do you harvest them or just have a source? and if you harvest them, where do you get the box?

 

I recently bought a chaps blazer with moth holes for $3 because the buttons were the same as a PRL camel hair blazer that was missing one. Which now anything I find that has damage that makes it unsellable, I'm harvesting the buttons, putting them in a baggie labeled with the source. 

 

Just wondering if there is a "best practice" for this.

I sold an item last night with shipping listed as BUYER pays for a medium flat-rate box. Buyer messages me this morning claiming that his purchase history AND the auction stated that the item would ship free. I looked at the completed auction and it very clearly states buyer pays shipping. Is there a reason he would have seen free shipping in his purchase history or is this guy screwing me?

It's not suppose to be like that.....just poor prior ownership.

Ask for a screen shot.

 

I have had a bunch of people say that the listing said that New Buyers would get a 10% discount. No idea what they are talking about.

Awaiting one. I doubt I ever see it. Guy had a feedback rating of 3 and has only been a member since the end of November 13.

I have had that happen. These are just scammers waiting to happen. If they argue with me about it I just open a case before they do. Refund and relist.

I bet the shipping discount thing is a lie... You can't change a listing once it's been bid on so...

 

Also, the harvesting buttons thing makes me think... Sadly the jackets here aren't priced cheaper if they're destroyed. I found a j.press jacket that was ripped to shreds and was missing a button but the would have been a fine replacement for a 2 button blazer!

That is what I've gone ahead and done. Buyer was very responsive for a while this morning, but has not responded to the case yet. Very annoying.

Had me thinking also. I have seen a few blazers in thrift (Kiton, BB and some less known brands), which were totally shredded, stained etc with all buttons attached. Is there really a market for button sets? Even second-hand?

I have never ever bought or sold anything on eBay, even though I have had an account for a few months now. Small transactions may be a good way to build up account history with not to much (financial) risk, no?

Still need to look into all the deets and text setup etc, since I have that thrifted Hermès tie to sell.

Definitely! I'll pick up trashed jackets on the cheap just for the buttons. I think I've 4-5 sets of Burberry logo buttons just in the last couple of months.

I think I might do it more for blazer buttons than for random suit buttons.

Got a buyer for your block lists hunter-trw

Guy bought a jacket from me Sunday night, shipped it out Tuesday morning. He wrote me this morning saying he hadn't received it yet, tracking shows no activity(i'm guessing USPS never scanned it initially). Said that if I don't resolve issue promptly he will leave negative feedback and that he demands his shipping fees refunded as well.

I told him i dropped it off Tueday morning at the post office and I can't control how they deliver their packages and to give it a day or two as their tracking system isn't the best and there has been some weather issues.and I aslo told him i was planning on giving him a shipping refund in the end anyway but did not appreciate his threats and extortion.

Anyway just a fair warning to you all

sorry. I was remembering that ATLNoob had boxes and thought you did too. See, I'm getting old and need to sleep more.
