A few weeks ago I had 3-4 Kitons up and they were on the second page if you did a search on Kiton because a seller had 30 ties up with a title like "Calvin Klein tie brioni kiton zegna attolini oxxford" and I bitched for 9 days to ebay before they started doing something about it. Â What pissed me off was having a listing that cost me $10 to post was on page 2 while some guys 50 cent listing for a Ck tie was at the top.
That's great to hear Â
Â They ended a number of my auctions recently because I put "Incotex" in the title line of an auction for Valentini pants, and "Barbera" in the title of a St. Andrew's suit auction. Both are legitimate comparisons that actually do a service to my customers (bringing lesser known brands of equal quality and lower selling price to their attention, which they normally might have missed.) Yet ebay seems dead set on harassing me, while leaving all the dishonest sellers alone to fleece the unsuspecting public Â
As for the selling strategy that prompted this thread - I wouldn't let anybody buy my NWT Belvest suits for $1.00 either, however, I would never start them at a dollar. It alienates customers.
