    So I've never sold an item on eBay before but eBay sent an email saying I can have a 25$ coupon if I list by April 8 and sell by April 18.

    This seems like a no brainer to throw a tie up for cheap right? If it doesn't sell I can always get my brother from a different address to buy then refund him or is there some caveat I'm missing?

    Well, a fake sale to a family member is against the T&C (and unethical)...but that doesn't stop people from doing it.

    The only problem I've ever had shipping to Hong Kong was when I mistakenly sent the wrong size of an item I had several sizes of... That was a costly mistake!

    Edit: I actually figured it out but if anyone has any tips or things I may not have thought about please shoot me a message


    I worked full time last year and sold on the side. Im trying to figure out if I can generate the Schedule C form I need for my taxes without an accountant. I signed up for GoDaddy but they only import the last 3 months. Does anyone have experience with this that doesnt ind helping. I know I procrastenated on this, but its hard to get excited about taxes. Plus I shouldn't owe anything on top of what I already paid in so I wasn't freaking out too much. Anyways any help would be appreciated before I call an accountant.

    Well I just spent too long at the post office, having them scan every item that sold over the weekend, though I'd already stamped all of them.
    I just discovered that three ties I dropped off over a week ago were never scanned or delivered. Other shipments from the same day have arrived, but not those three, one of which was a $50 Brioni.

    There's got to be a better way.

    Does anyone know why on earth any seller uses UPS ground as their shipping method? Do you get a huge price break if you're a big seller/shipper or something? It's the absolute worst and everything I've purchased from a seller that uses UPS takes approx. 8-10 days across country and is more expensive than USPS priority. What gives?

    +1 on scan forms. My post office tries to tell me to just leave my stuff on their pile, but I had a package go awol so now I use a scan form.

    I've never seen this come up before in the shipping section of an offer, anyone know what it means?

    Is there any good way to win a "doesn't seem authentic" claim. I usually just bend over and take it but this guy is just a dick. Selling display model sunglasses, I don't get paperwork or anything with them. One of his arguments was in regards to the gradient which I've already proved him wrong, second statement was "polarization doesn't seem homogenous so therefore they are fake"

    He's already returned them, but I really hate to eat the $15 in shipping. Any chance of winning?
