    Honestly, it's the front waffle that is freaking me out. When I would eat Eggos, I had to slowly pour the same amount of syrup into every square. And when I would cut the waffle, all cuts had to be made along the grid lines.

    Once flagged and taken down, relisting the same item is asking for serious trouble imo. Not worth the risk.

    Lol so I've never had one of these before... Guy gets drunk and buys jeans from me. Sends me a message about how he had a few whiskeys and bought the jeans and wanted to know what I meant by "CRISP" in the title. :eh:

    Already I know that he's gonna be problematic. But I hope for the best and send the jeans out.

    ...

    Now he wants to return the jeans because he overlooked details and doesn't like the fit. :mad2:

    How come jeans always seems to bring out the flakes.

    Same, but did you also get visible melted butter in each square before the syrup? That's that good OCD.

    You should ask him to have a few whiskeys and try them on again. Gotta match the buying/receiving scenarios.

    Unsure what you sold them for, but since the onus for return shipping is on drunky, hopefully he ends up keeping them

    I received a return to sender package from Thailand, which I don’t even ship to anymore. Dude paid $57 +$55 for a pair of MiUSA Converse All-Stars and never contacted me. It been ten months since I shipped them!

    Is there a thread for product photography discussion? I’m thinking about upgrading my photography equipment and skills.

    You found it. Lots of info in this thread, though I’m not sure how easy it is to search. SF search ain’t what it used to be.

    I usually politely decline or ignore offers to buy auction items, but every once in a while you get a more than fair offer... That happened this morning, and ebay isn't letting me revise the auction to add the BIN, is this a new "feature"? Has anyone tried this recently? The item does have a bid (from the person requesting the offer). I did try to edit one w/o offers and it goes through, no problem.

    Through a little research, is it possibly part of the new offer feature ebay foisted on auctions last year? I have never seen it pop up on one of my auctions, but apparently it's for people to make an offer for BELOW the starting bid?

    edit- So I just did the old school, end item and sell to highest bidder. Never actually did it that way before, I've always just added the BIN to give the person a chance to back out if they weren't serious about the offer.
