    not bad pics at all, a quick fix for you would be to get the procamera app on your phone which has pretty good white balance and exposure settings.

    All clothing. Fit and color are most common. One clown tried to tell me that my tan houndstooth sport coat was mustard yellow....

    Did anyone get another email similar to this one this week? Reminder ebay will start charging sellers with high returns an extra 4% FVF starting in Sept/Oct.

    I'm shocked at this message from "Young", an ebay rep. He's actually asking me if I'll compensate the buyer for his TIME to go to the Post Office to return an item. WOW.

    hi this is young from ebay customer support assisting your buyer right now atom1717 who purchase the item xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx last july5 for a total of 379.05 with the item no. xxxxxxxxx. buyer would like to inform you that he thinks the 33.68$ for the shipping fee is not enough for the shipping and buyer would like to be compensated for the time/ work for the day he went to the post office to ship the item. if it proves to be not enough. hoping for your quick response.


    Thanks,

    eBay



    (I accepted this guy's return request, but he told ebay he didn't have the $ to pay for shipping, so ebay asked me to give him a label or send him $ to pay for shipping. He's in Japan, so I had to go on Japan Post, calculate shipping, and PayPal him the estimated amount.)

    @Pierson v Post you're kidding me right? The buyer wants additional pay/comp to go to the post office? That's nuts.

    Yes, I didn't quote all the ridiculous messages from the buyer, but in a previous one he asked me to send him an additional $20 to compensate him for his time to bring the package to the post office.

    Surely asking for additional money to compensate for his effort to get to the post office qualifies as an unreasonable demand? What was his reason for the return?

    What a joke... compensate for his time? Will he compensate you for compensating him? Has no money to return the package... equally ridiculous.

    To be clear: although the ebay rep sent me that message, I called back and said "absolutely not", and the rep on the phone agreed with me. I've done everything needed on my end. Now to see if he actually sends it back.

    Reminds me of last night. My wife and I went to a concert. During intermission, we wandered out to get a snack, and a beer for me.

    When we came back, the couple sitting next to us jokingly said they would take payment (for letting us through) in food. I looked at the wife, and with a straight face, said “I’ve got a couple of partially melted granola bars in my pocket.”

    We saw The Wailin' Jennys in Arvada, CO. I got the tickets for my wife for her birthday. This was my fourth time seeing them live, and my wife's fifth.
