    Yes.

    The nicer designs start at about $198 and they go as high as $500 retail.

    I accepted an offer on a pair of shell cordovan shoes from a bidder in Japan, and started to get worried when he hadn't paid 2 days later. Sent a friendly reminder message, and he responded and asked for a few more days to pay. Lo and behold, he ended up paying today! It pays to be polite and patient.

    More expensive is the term I should have used.


    The one posted wouldn't be something I would go for., but I do have a few.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I will wait another day and then send a reminder. I have always paid within less than 24 hours and all my prior buyers have as well--not that I sell on EBay a lot, as I am sure you cal tell!

    i would guess that he is trying to ward off any other bidders. It would be a fair assumption that he has bid at least $25 above the minimum bid, so anyone wanting to win would have to pay over $75 for the shirt. However, I don't know if bid increments come into effect when merely raising your own max bid...I haven't tried it. So, it's possible he really has only bid les than $1 above minimum, thus scaring away other bidders, but not falling prey to shill bidding.

    I guessed that would be the case. Prolly an effective way of dissuading bidders while keeping your risk low....and very irritating. Hopefully this is a desirable skeet so that his folly is revealed (I have no feel for which skeets get the love).

    either way, i dont think most other bidders look at that, i certainly wouldn't

    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?
