Two non-paying buyers as of late to avoid: aceve_santi and maila5

Also, had a nightmare of a time with this buyer these past few days: kimieric2013

Purchased a cash Brioni overcoat for $425, then opens a return case due to one missing button, refuses to work with me, and has been pretty rude through the whole process. Would definitely steer clear in the future.

2 questions...

Lets say I watermark each photo with my business/ebay logo. Underneath my logo and I allowed to put the instagram logo to let people know that I have an instagram?

Am I allowed to include an image of just my logo as the last picture in a listing? This image would not have a photo of the product in it.

I could’ve sworn eBay changed their policy and are starting to remove listings with watermarked photos when they find them.

There are several sellers in the clothing category that have watermarked photos. I called and asked ebay these 2 questions and a non-US based rep responded that I could. For obvious reasons I don't fully trust what they're saying.

So I got a photo question. Currently I live in a studio apt so I dont have that much space. The apt has a backyard with a table. I sometimes use that for items like ties and shoes. And when i can at work i use the photo room. However i can't always use the photo room. Because of that I have a back log growing and I can come up with a way to take pictures. Googling has lead me to youtubers who aren't really helpful so I thought I would ask here.

Here's some more for the blocked list:

kimieric2013, korhasenoehr-0, trusk_vladi

ordered pants and asked about the rise. I sent him measurements and of course he created a NAD return stating that they didn't fit due to the rise being too low. He immediately proceeds to order another pair of pants that measure only half an inch difference in the rise. He won't respond to my messages stating they won't fit because they're the same measurements as the last pair that didn't fit him. I sent him a cancel request to give him a way out, and he canceled that. I'm expecting another return :(

I just posted about my nightmare with kimieric2013 a few days ago, what was your experience?

Not turning on the make offer option on auctions anymore. People are too fucking cheap and stupid to realize it’s not to make offers below starting price
I'm not a seller so I don't know but isn't there some option to just ignore offers below a certain point? I tried making offers on a suit and just got instantaenous rejections so I assume that's what it was. Lady later sold the suit for significantly less than my highest offer that she instant-rejected so

There’s a noticeable surge in sales just before eBay monthly invoice is due and a noticeable drop in sales after invoice has been paid, so now I pay 2 weeks later every month🤪.
I sell BINOBO but when I get an offer I’m willing to accept, I won’t commit by clicking ‘accept offer’ which gives them an extra 2 days to pay or 5 days to relist if they never pay, I change price of the listing and let them know I changed it for them so that immediate payment is still in effect.
