Buying and Selling on eBay: Tips, Tricks, Problems & Questions - Page 586

Is it weird that a potential buyer asked the same question on the same item within a 5 day span?

Calculate 13% off the sale price to make it simple. Charge actual shipping and your all set.

I have seen some creative solutions here, so, hoping someone has a quick / easy / cheap / DIY idea for raising two tables up by about a foot, maybe a bit more.  Needs to be temporary (not permanently affixed), but sturdy.  I don't want to buy a circular or table saw to accomplish this, and need to get materials home in my 2-door car.  Did I mention quick & easy & cheap?  That too.

 

Here's a photo:

 

 

 

...it's two tables, total 6' length x 5' depth, that I will eventually use for flat photos as well as wrapping / packing / shipping, and these low tables really grind on my back.

 

Since there 4 legs down each side I'm thinking of one long riser of some sort on each side...and if someone said "Oh yeah, XYZ company sells these 5-foot long by 1-foot high thingers" that would be pretty much what I need.

 

Just posting this gave me an idea - maybe some of those long plastic planter boxes (turned upside down) - depends on how tall I can get them.  But if anyone has any ideas please share.  Thanks!

Lots of options. Easy one easy And cheap.

6 restaurant sized cans of Tomatos or green beans. Or gallon paint cans. Buy a 10 foot long 1x6. Have the store cut it into 2 5 foot pieces. Space three cans on each side under the legs with a board on top.

If you know someone with a jigsaw, round off the corners so you don't kick it.

If you use a board, you can also get some caster cups and nail them to the board where each leg will sit so the legs don't slide off the board easily.

Just an FYI: Annoyed by thrift stores marking prices on shoe soles with permanent marker, I tried the mr clean magic eraser on a rubber heel, and the silver marker came completely off. Not a trace. So nice when things just work. Haven't had a chance to try it on leather soles yet but looking forward to that opportunity.

It's this part (not my shoe, found this picture online). The black part on the heel (what is it called, btw?), I think it is rubber but I may be wrong. The price was marked there, and mr clean eraser worked like a charm.

Wont get your money back, but will take the ding away.

And, ReiningChamp, I would suggest adding more pics to your listings to shoe the condition. You get 12 pics for free, it's a good idea to use as many as possible,
You are so right. Taking more pics now to add to the listing.

Question for ppl with stores

 

The basic membership says 150 FREE listings per month.  Well, if I do 30 day BINOBO and the item gets relisted, will I still have to pay a fee?

 

I'm getting reamed on items that get relisted every month.  My monthly statements are in the $350 range for ebay. :(

The bigger your statement, the better you're doing. Every cycle of the 'Good til cancelled' listing counts as one listing. I think I went through 650+ last month.

Oh? I thought if it was re-listed then I've to pay another listing fee. 

 

If that's not correct, then I'm trying to figure out if I should get a store or not. I probably list 50 items per month if that. Probably not beneficial, right?

Every cycle counts as a listing. Each listing is the 10 cent fee. If something is up for six months, it will cost you 60 cents.

Unfortunately my listings are $1 + b/c I add the gallery and etc.
