    I'm probably better off doing the priority mail thing given the value of the item. Only a 13$ difference (and well, it's the buyer who's paying)

    I'm beginning to think ebay might be padding the stats. I've got items with zero views that have watchers or have more watchers than views. Could just be a glitch but I wouldn't put it past those sneaky bastards.

    2 days ago I had an item with 2 views and 3 watchers, doesn't make a lot of sense

    Those stats are constantly inaccurate. More times than not mine seem okay, but it's common to see 0 views with watchers.

    SO the guy was hoping to get it for 0.006% of the BIN price?
    I had no idea what Vicuna was, Vicuna's wool is more expensive than gold

    Hmm, I'm just catching up here.

    So what if a buyer buys a suit, say in November. Then they go through the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentines day, and then they want to wear it on Easter Sunday...but it doesn't fit anymore?

    Guess I'll be picking up an external hard drive. That's approximately 38,000 pictures to save for proof of condition.

    OK, so proof of condition is a thing right? For example, to my question above where I have pictures of the pockets in good condition, when the buyer leaves me negative for the outside of the pockets being in bad condition?

    What I was saying before is doesn't eBay only save the last 3 months of your sales history? So a buyer could wait 4-5 months and open a PayPal case citing item not as described when in reality they accidently poured wine on the suit you sold them?

    If you can prove it and convince ebay/paypal. Not always easy...just ask eazye. Banned for life over some false SNAD case.

    That was a MAJOR issue I was reading about today..... 180 days,.... USPS does not keep tracking that long, ebay does not keep auctions up that long. [​IMG]

    You might be able to also upload to something like photobucket, etc. That's what I currently use, or just buy a cheap hosting service. http://whdb.com/plans/cheapest/unlimited-storage

    In that case the buyer wouldn't have proof of what was described either.

    You could print the listing to PDF and save it.
