I understand like I said.
Im just giving feedack to keep in mind.
eBay isn't really prescriptive, it's a platform that supports lots and lots of different buying and selling 'styles'.
for instance, one of the reasons i like OBO so much is that it allows me to more or less choose my customers while they set their terms out. that works well for me, other people may not look at it that way and that's perfectly legitimate too.
so if a seller doesn't give measurements or is slow to respond then that's a pretty good opportunity for a buyer to find another seller who is a better match without having to risk on an actual transaction. gotta read the room - not every deal has to work out just like you don't have to marry every girl (or guy) you date.
In general, it's good advice, but if you've read this thread, it just seems like you're preaching to the choir.
Ebay is platform for buyers and sellers we both agree. If you dont want to provide customer service and you have your clientele im fine with you may as well do business only with them privately as in private sales, but than you have seller here bashing new buyers when themself are failing at providing this part of customer service than shifting blame on the buyers for returning merchandise that did not fit, when they cutting corners and providing mediocre service.
So thats that
I agree with you within the other points. My point though was simple feedback.
True, and I give measurements on typically tailored items or anything that appears altered. The problem is the people who come to eBay for dirt cheap prices and then expect Barney's level service. Find me a platform where the buyers all pay top dollar for used merchandise and I'll happily sell there and provide the highest level of customer service possible. It boils down to you get what you pay for.
Hows 200, 300 dirt cheap for pair of pants?
300 you close to bespoke.
A shirt for 300 is cheap?
Yeah buddy all you doing is buying the clothes at half price from discounted service and selling it in ebay. You dont rent a store in manhattan, pay taxes in same way they pay ect, and cartering to that clientele. Yet you want to set the price close to them? In net there is a lot of places to buy and lot of services, so all or set you apart from rest is price and service.
A. Not your buddy. B. You don't know shit about what I'm doing. I wouldn't do it for those margins. My blocked list is a lonely place, but welcome.
