I won the auction.

Whoa. I hope you got this worked out, Doc.

It wasn't all that bad, ultimately. I ended up paying about $38 total after someone tried to snipe my snipe. That's far more than the $14.50 I intended, but not enough to bother with a bid retraction. And it'll teach me to pay attention to the "confirm your bid" screen.

it would have been a very unpleasant surprise to him if he used a snipe program to win that tie!

I make quite a nice chunk of change on the side selling things on ebay. The RTW clothes and high end clothes are a good money maker.

I bought a sport coat on buy it now - just a nice fabric a great price. In any event, shipping was listed as $7.10. I certainly figured that was not unreasonable in this day and age when sellers sometimes ask more than $20.00 to ship. This morning I received an e-mail that read, in part: "Actual shipping was $4.70 not the intial charge of $7.10. A refund of $2.40 has been returned to your Paypal account to correct the error. I apologize for the inconvience. Thank you," Seller is clothier4you.

It was not the amount, but the principle and that it was entirely unsolicited. Very impressive and very decent.

I bought some shoes from sneakerhawk when he still had a good reputation. It just happens to be one of the few times I forget to use credit card on PayPal. He tells me there is some shipping delay: because of the holidays I was both lazy and buying a lot of stuff on eBay, so I forget about it. Once I get around to dealing with it, by the time I've verified he's not responding to emails it's too late to file a PayPal/eBay dispute. It also turns out that right after my purchase the negative feedbacks started pilling up. Here are the lessons I paid for, I'll share them for free:
  • Always use a credit card on PayPal to give you more claim options.
  • Keep an eye on sellers' reputation after your auction has closed - if it starts to tank, file a claim. (You can escalate a PayPal claim if you have evidence the seller is fradulent.)
  • Keep track of what items should have arrived and bug your sellers if things are overdue.
  • If there are shipping issues, demand a tracking number and verify that it's correct.
  • Put a reminder in your schedule to file a claim before 45 days after payment.

So you saved like $1,412. You're a shopping stud!

Who would want to buy clothes from a brand called "fray"?

Everything listed is authentic,

however, there is nothing listed on that link.

Were they all sold...or removed?

SALVIO_S is .. frankly, a terrible seller and now the reason that I will only purchase goods from the US, Canada, and the UK.

I've had two sellers in the past month do that as well. I've bought from over 100 auctions and that never had happened before. They got glowing feedback, ha ha.

This guy is great, awesome prices, very fast shipping, and great communication. I got a nice personalized note in my package as well. I bought a NWT RLBL suit for $100 from him.
