Guys...wwyd in this situation:

Just sold a nice Loro Piana sweater... Hadn't cut the GW tag off until after the sale. Noticed where the tag was there is the slightest of pulls from the tag.

What to do? Do I ship and hope its not a big deal? Do I message the winner and let them know? Ugh...I have an unblemished eBay record and don't want to compromise it.

Thx.

Dear wtfdexter,

You will find in the item specifics section that the bag is approximately 16"x14"x3"

Thanks for looking,
Wes
 

Dear weso0119,


i see shipping rate to canada is 36$.

Q like to bid on bag but shipping is very hi rate

Q can you wrap bag in garbage bag duck tape it usps regular dont box it no taxes or import charges bag is used . if i win item

thanks..


 
- wtfdexter




Dear wtfdexter,


The $36 is probably too high. Ebay does not consider my shipping discount. I won't ship in a bag though. A box will provide protection during shipment.


Wes


Dear weso0119,

its a bag what protection fold it just put bubble wrap and duck tape it best protection and lablel label it no more then 20$ shipping rate mark as used item ..


 
- wtfdexter
 

Dear wtfdexter,


It is against the law, ebay policy and my store policy for me to falsify customs forms. Sorry, but I will not do that.

I ship all of my items in boxes to provide maximum protection.


Wes


 
Dear weso0119,

not falsify custom forms or braking the law item is used no import or duties charges on item into canada
just shipping all in .


 
- wtfdexter
 
Dear wtfdexter,

I'm pretty sure we are having a language barrier here, though I though Canadians spoke English quite well. I thought you had asked me to mark the item at no more than $20. That would indeed be falsifying customs forms and therefore be a violation of international law.
 
Wes
 
NO.
bubble wrap the item with duck tape and label it USPS dont box it for shipping rate much more money if you box the item
item is used ! rite so there are no duties or taxes or extra charges on used items into canada





At this point, I removed his/her bids and blocked bidding and communications

In my experience, very poor grammar is often a warning sign of bad things to come. When I get persistent questions worded like that, I usually add the person to my block list right away. I might lose a sale, but it will probably save me a huge headache.

If you can't repair the damage, I would message the seller and provide a photo, while explaining exactly what happened. Make sure you apologize and include the fact that you are willing to issue a full refund immediately.

Its incredibly slight but I have no idea how to fix. If I offer a refund do I still owe eBay fees?

ALSO on thread repair. Everyone in here should have both a Seam Ripper and a Snag Nab-It.

You can cancel the transaction and get a refund on the fees.

Quick question:

I have a suit and the inside of the pants are soiled with urine. I don't think cleaning will get the stains out (I tried very briefly). The reason I purchased the suit is because the jacket could be worn as a blazer, and it's also a 100% cashmere Bijan suit. I could sell the blazer alone and be done with it, or I could include the pants and obviously note that they are stained and include photos. I believe, psychologically speaking, even a buyer who intends to throw the pants away will want to pay less for the jacket than they would have if it were sold as a blazer with no pants. The jacket is now "lesser than" because it's part of a suit that someone pissed in. IMO, I'm going to make more money by selling it as a blazer with no pants.

On the other hand, Spoo just sold a Zegna Couture suit with soiled pants for like $375, but it was a pinstripe suit, which changes the game. He basically had to sell it with the pants.

What would you do?

I've sold with pants, and note in the listing, "pant liner stained, does not affect outer wool".  Could also throw a verbiage in their stating "starting price lower in consideration of stain"  This will counter the physiological belief of having to pay less...or you could just donate pants and seller as Sport Coat.  But easy way to determine is ask yourself, which one can I earn more from, Suit or SC sale?  If you believe s a suit, then try your hand at it.  Worse case, you re-list it as a SC, and delete photos of pants.

While working in the restoration industry, I did a lot of carpet repair and cleaning. We were taught to never use the words "Stain" or "Dirt". We replaced them with "Spot" and "Soil"...it's a psychological thing....even though they are essentially the same words.

This topic has been discussed on about every third page through this entire thread. Do we all really have to weigh in again, or could you just read up on it.

 

But seriously, this thread is packed full of valuable information if you just take the time to read through it. 

@jdrizzy

 

Sorry for my response this morning. I strangled 3 people at work since then and feel much better now.

How extensive is the stain? Much of the inside of a pair of trousers is replaceable.

I agree, also try to never explain what you think the spot is.  I would not try and describe the spot as a urine stain (or spot or soil), rather allow the potential buyer to determine what it is, and if worth the purchase to them.  We are only here to disclose what is present, and allow buyers to proceed with a determination.

It's pretty bad. The pockets would need replaced, as well as some of the cotton lining. I am not sure if the silk lining is stained or not. I forget and I'm not at home. I am also then faced with having that uncomfortable conversation with my tailor, ha.

No harm calling your tailor and pricing replacing various aspects of the inside of a pair of trousers for this or another time. I'll only buy something if it's just the knee/thigh lining that is stained. In that case I'll cut out the lining, bring them to my tailor, and ask him to put in some new lining. No awkward conversations.
