Also if there is a flash player involved for a slideshow or something, you won't be able to see it at all with an iPhone. I try to think of those hinderances when I do my listings as well, by always trying to use all of the 12 free photos and only adding pics to the description if I want to show more detail.

 

Plus the new zoomable galleries ebay offers are outstanding.

Pinterest is probably going to drive your sales forward, especially on more mall-oriented brands.  It's generally been a site for women looking for visual inspiration and is a sort of consumerist amalgamation of linkedin, etsy, and flickr.  Avoiding social media is the last thing you want to do if you want to become a savvy and efficient business on the internet.  Surely you aren't thinking that you're going to make money on every transaction by taking crappy photos and haphazardly listing lots.  Look at BPore and Wes...they consistently take great photos, list things at predictable times, and know how to communicate with their audience.  Pinterest is a new way to do this in eBay, though I haven't explored how effective it is.

Hmmm, my wife has a pinterest account. I never even noticed the pinterest button on the listings. I think I will have her pin all of my listings to her bulletin board.

 

Oh yeah, Thanks for the compliments! cheers.gif

+1 Thanks shog[1].gif

 

Just signed up for a pinterest account. Lets see if it makes a difference. I'm open to any method for getting more views/watchers. Will report back

 

I try to make sure every one of my listings has at minimum 6 pictures (for a basic button up shirt). If I have more then 12 pictures (like a suit). I upload the most important 12 to the ebay gallery and then include ALL of them in HTML format as I find it nicer to view when using a computer. I dont even look at the gallery pictures if I can avoid it. The nice thing with HTML is that you can make them BIG, no reason not to upload them to HTML & use the gallery IMO, unless you really want to save the extra time (like 60 seconds??) to copy and paste html photo photobucket or wherever, PLUS you need the HTML for the B&S adds here (well I do anyway).

 

Also got some pictures of these from yesterday. Was 50/50 on buying them as they need new heels, but first pair of V cleats I have seen and thought they would clean up nice (which they did).

And since you already posted it, not to cock block, but I doubt anyone on this thread is going to pay you $70 for a burberry jumper

Finally, IMO your fit pic would be better with a single breasted blazer, DB makes you look like you are trying too hard!

Brian, do you use the ebay traffic report tool?

 

I love seeing where people are coming to my store from. I usually get about 10% of my hits from SF.

Quick shout out to Brianpore, Cotton Dockers, and JP for being fabulous...in the most awesomest seller type of way.

I also glean a ton of useful information from all of your experiences on eBay and all that is related to selling on it. I've learned a ton and appreciate you guys taking the time to share your knowledge (except for Ian who's clearly just looking to make a quick buck). I sincerely have yet to find a sub-community as generous as those who frequent this thread. Even Spoo with his hit-and-fade giveaway tactics are a good indicator of what you guys have going on here. Thanks again to all of you regulars who continue to instill hope that the human race hasn't completely gone down the "sense of entitlement" shitter.

Never used it, but just looked. Over the last year about 18% is from SF

I don't even know what that large piece of machinery does, nevermind someone who needs one!

Last two weeks, none available. Also, I see that Jkidd has put up those 4XL zegna shirts. I think they gonna go quick.
I always grab them, they run a lot slimmer and if your a bigger guy going for that more tailored look, they are perfect.

D'oh. Guess this is what I get for quietly bigstar[1].gif myself everytime you guys have issues with the 'bay buyers.  This is my first return - oh well.

 

 

 

If you held them in your own hands you could not possibly describe them as you did.
I as all ebayer's want the item as described. Please refund my money asap which I expect to include shipping.
David

Unique problem at the thrifts earlier today. Had to fight for elbow room with the polygamist family shopping at savers.boxing[1].gif Only in Utah or maybe Arizona and southern Colorado.

Should have just started a bidding war to see which one of them loved their husband enough/most to buy the Brioni coat you found... of course feel free to substitute the local flavour for brioni coat
