    Looking for a way to list more efficiently. Bulk listing seems to have a steep learning curve. Garagesale is Mac only (and it looks like it has more options than I need anyway.) Any suggestions?

    I was desperate enough to download the Ebay Turbo Lister, which is truly state of the art (if you are still running Windows 98).

    Well, here we go. We have other bidders now so we can see his bidding pattern. It is quite random, but in smaller increments ranging from about 10 cents to $1.50. He is still winning, but the shirt has already gone higher than expected. He bid 51 times in about 10 minutes, his second to last bid was 70.01, then he bid one more time about 20 minutes later, not sure why.

    The second bidder must have been getting close, the crazy bidder just bid 6 more times.

    Maybe he wants to up the bid count to ward off competition?

    When refunding a bidder who decided he does not want the item after winning it, due to various reasons of which I'm ok with. Do you refund him the agreed upon money, THAN cancel the transaction? After that all is done?

    The item was just won 2nit, did not pack it up yet, and didnt print shipping label.
    So not much of a worry to me, plus ill snag a few bucks outa him for the hassle.
    But is this the way to go about it?

    Send him a refund of whatever you agree upon dollar wise then after you sent the refund go into the resolution center and open a "cancel transaction case". Not the reason whatever it is and all set.

    So a Canadian guy BIN'd something I was selling, messages me to say that the price in the invoice ($16 for a package under 2 pounds) is too high, shows me where a flat envelope of the same weight is only $9.

    Some back and forth, asks to be invoiced for just the $9 shipping, and if it doesn't work he takes the full blame, I'm not responsible etc etc.

    Am I ok? or is this going to come back and bite me?

    What is it that you are selling? What service are you shipping by? How much did the item cost? You have a few variable when shipping international but I can not ship anything to Canada for $9 and be protected with ebay, FYI

    Sending a pair of jeans to Canada (just sold) and it's going to cost me approx $21 ($8 first class mail & $12 register). Not sure how you can send them cheaper and still be fully protected with all of ebay's stipulations and needing proof of deliver.

    Spoo, how do you ship something under $250 and under 2lbs to Canada??
