    Comment and a question:

    1. I buy a lot of shirts on eBay. If you don't list p2p and length, I just assume you are a lazy seller, and not someone worth dealing with. The great thing about eBay is that twenty other sellers have similar items.

    2. When eBay does a site-wide discount (like today's 15%), do they eat the discount, or do the sellers? Assume eBay does, I guess.

    EBay eats the discount.

    Anyone know what the deal is with these BB labels? I've seen them every so often in the thrifts. Are they fugazi, outlet, something else???

    ^^BB is just older standard label, nothing special

    @SpooPoker do you happen to know what approx year these would be / anything unique about them besides being badass shirt shirts?

    Found out the hard way that the RealReal doesn’t eat the discount and takes it out of the consignors profits.
    Never again, assholes

    Q: I just noticed when composing new listings that the Size in Item Specifics no longer offers a dropdown list and becomes a write your own format. I wonder how this change will affect listing visibility in search and is the labeled size or converted size more preferred?

    When eBay runs those occasional 15% sitewide sales, have any of you revised your listings to include the discount code in your titles? As in "Use XXXCODE2018 and save 15%"

    I know its fairly well advertised on the landing page, but I imagine not everyone would see it, especially if they were linked to your listing through a search.
