    Those are for all items that were either ended without a bid, or never paid for. Rather than donate them, I chucked them up to see what all this BIN hoopla is about. Whats interesting is that I listed them all with a $20 or so higher price than they ended at originally, sometimes $10 more - and they all sold. Cray.

    Yes, you will learn how a monopoly performs economic rape.

    Ebay fees are crazy.

    There should be an award for the user who gets closest to using all those.

    Spoo and Wes, why is your shipping so high for Canada? :(

    I'll answer this. I'm a Canadian and recently popped into a post office in NYC. To ship a tie (for example) within the US, the cost is a flat $5.80. To ship the same tie to Canada, is a flat rate that's 3-4 times higher than if you were shipping within the US.

    I'm convinced the shipping calculator is consistently incorrect. I can provide more accurate quotes if you'd like.

    WTF Why was I not invited?!



    Always a 50% discount for international shipping for SF members, but its pretty much actual cost. I only use Priority/Express, never 1st class.

    It just popped up on my seller page today. I didn't actually receive an email about it. I might only use like 950,000 of mine so you can use the rest if you want.

    Holy heck I got it too. Didn't think I'd get invited to that kinda thing. I'll be sure to abuse it as much as possible.

    There was a note with mine asking me to not mention the offer to Spoo.

    That's ridiculous! I've shipped shoes to the USA for half of what the big sellers on eBay charge. I wonder why low shipping costs don't go both ways. Hooray for Canada Post?

    I was looking through your listings (a little bit for fun; I'm amazed at the number of your listings!) and noticed ties/cufflinks were around $30 to ship. So I thought I'd ask why :)

    Sweet! Thanks, Spoo! I've been eyeing those Martegani's since you listed them.

    On My eBay page, under messages (from eBay) it is listed as "Sell now for Halloween—list early!"
