If that hole was something he could fix or have fixed before shipping, would you do it? It's near a seam, so it will likely be incredibly hard to find.

My question of the day: If I have scheduled start listings and want to "reschedule" them en masse to start immediately, is there no option to accomplish that other than edit individually?  All I see is the option to reschedule them for a set time in the future, and optionally space them out, but no option to "start now".

You don't have the top option? It is checked by default.

If I just sold something through the global shipping program (going to Canada) do I just put the exact address that is on the ebay invoice?

 

It looks like this:

 

Reference #ORAAA00000008763XXXX
1850 Airport Exchange Blvd #200
Erlanger, KY 41018
United States

 

Also, is it fine if I use a regular priority mail box even if it's going to Canada?  Thanks guys.

Not sure what you're asking. He wants it but wants a discount. Is $25 fair

I don't have (or maybe do not see) that top option...perhaps I need to customize a bit more to have it show - still picking up on things that are not shown on my dashboard by default and have been tweaking it.  Thank you - I'll poke around some more - must be there somewhere!

Use multiple keywords to maximize exposure based on different demographics search words(sweater, pullover, jumper) (jacket, sport coat, blazer)
take good photos

I despise people who do this, it ruins my searches. I was looking for a Barbour jacket for myself and kept getting no name crap from China with "Like Barbour" in the title. I report them every single time, probably wasted several hours of my life on doing it but serious pet peeve of mine.

 

Other than that the main thing I appreciate is telling me the condition whenever there is an issue with an item other than normal wear, Spoo will put a blurb like small hole in left arm next to his rating. He will than highlight this in a photo. As a buyer I appreciate this, I don't like when a seller doesn't mention it at all in his description just says something like description via photos. Than just puts up a photo with a hole in the material. Leaving you to puzzle out where the hole is and whether it is small enough to escape notice, reweave or be hidden when the item is worn. Just be up front about the condition, it is better for you and the buyer. My 2 cents as mainly a buyer on eBay.

And should I fix it myself? Just went and bought a crochet hook. Or should I send this pic to buyer and ask if he wants to cancel?

Would be very surprised if he did not cancel.  You should try to fix and if you cant, let him know asap

Well, what do you expect? Your clientele pays over $1K for a LP item...they're going to act like the hole is the end of the world

 

Refund him, have it reweaved, re-list

If you're not losing money by giving him half off I think you should do it. I wouldn't pay much for a sweater with a visible hole and I think to get 100$ for it, is a win. Unless you think you can fix it somehow. Don't risk a negative feedback. That can cause much bigger losses in the long run.

Perhaps he would agree to cancel the transaction and you can relist it for half and he can buy it again.

I would try to get it fixed first. If not I would then give the discount.

Since it's sold already I don't have the luxury of time
