    A return for Item Not As Described is no longer a defect. Though, if your return percentage is unusually high over a period of time, ebay will raise your seller fees.

    What is the consensus on chrome hangers? I know for nicer stuff like suits that it’s ideal to use an actually wooden suit hanger. But for jackets, tees, etc. is this style of metal hanger alright?

    I just bought 200 of this exact brand/style from local store for $30 (.06/ea) and they had another 4-5 boxes so trying to decide if they’re worth grabbing to use in place of the crappy plastic ones that cost around 6-10c each and break in cold weather.

    Sterling silver is preferred, but chrome is ok in a pinch.

    You’d just have to return for “changed mind”, “doesnt fit” or “didn’t like”. This will not affect their service metrics.

    Only returns for reasons like “not as described”, “arrived damaged” and “wrong item sent” can potentially raise their fees.

    Here is a screen shot of the potentially harmful return reasons for which sellers are evaluated....

    And also “item not received”

    Is ebay doing anything unusual right now? My last three sales have been there zero feedback, two of whom have just joined ebay (one looks like they signed up to buy the item). I've had brand new buyers before, and everyone has to make their first purchase, but three in a row over the weekend?

    I'm getting this message while creating Fixed Price listings now...

    Relist your listing


    • To help you sell your item, fixed price listings can only be listed with a Good 'Til Cancelled duration. The listing duration has been set to Good 'Til Cancelled.
    ...sure don't remember getting an email with a heads up

    edit: damn, they did tell us Feb 26. Hate it
