    I sell everything with NO RETURNS listed. This is the first issue I have had with lux goods. I was just happy that eBay didn't side with the buyer like I have heard so many times and that is the main reason for the post.

    Hard to tell with text, but you sound offended. I was merely using your post to start a conversation about customer service. eBay has a rep for some horrible shit being done by dubious sellers, which is why they so often side with the buyers. I have received a shirt that was disgustingly dirty and fabric snagged everywhere, who would try to sell that shit? I wouldn't have even donated it, hell I wouldn't have even let it get that bad before I threw it out, and yet here we are. I know it's not your situation, eBay needs both buyers and sellers, but if they side with sellers too much, they will lose buyers. There's always people out there trying to make a buck any way possible, and if the bay doesn't police things, the buyers will go away and the legitimate sellers will get less for their good stuff. Now letting someone return something for no reason, yeah I probably wouldn't like that, but that's why I set a restocking fee, if you think you're not going to gain a loyal customer because of it, and this guy is gong to continue to pay shipping both ways + a restocking fee just to try stuff on, then block him.

    Sorry, NOT INTENDED

    Have you tried that Ferragamo archive site. You might be able to pinpoint the model name and then research the materials that way.

    Not all of them are that complete on the info, we got lucky there. But it does help to be able to browse through until you at least figure out the model name. From there it's just a few google searches away from the other info.

    So I'm quite new to eBaying and want to make it a profitable hobby. How do you all get more views and sales? What are some tricks for enticing keywords and descriptions? I have a few feedbacks, all positive, but some of my auctions only get a handful of views a day. Does doing certain things increase my search result visibility?

    What is your ebay username. Would love to take a look and see what pointers we can give.
