    Let me know how that works for u Brian, I've been pondering the same thought thinking it would make a difference.

    I'll let you know, but it's not as much for the $$ as it is really just to get rid of some stuff. Most items ether have a slight issue or just been listed too long for what they are.... Need the hangers for better items which I have gotten a lot of recently [​IMG]

    Kind of bummed out. Sold my first item on ebay, and the winning bidder isn't responding. Blah!

    Do you guys add people to the blacklist for non-payment? Is that too small of an infraction to warrant being listed?

    I've never added anyone to the blacklist, where is it?

    In regards to size of an infraction, I would blacklist someone for nonpayment under certain conditions. For instance, I had someone BIN on a Polo Corneliani wool/cashmere suit and then no payment, no response for two weeks. Finally, he wrote back and said he had forgotten he purchased and that the event he was buying it for was the night before and he didnt want it anymore.

    Totally blacklist worthy.

    I've never actually added one either, but mainly because, based on feedback, most of my buyers shop exclusively on ebay.de. You need to contact Brian for the blacklist, it's a google doc. To be honest, I've never actually looked in to how I edit it. Brian, care to weigh in or is his better suited to the dedicated blacklist thread?

    Anyway, I'm curious now as I have a couple of buyers (one US based, another Russian-based) that would qualify as they both buy on ebay com (as opposed to .de or .at). One, however, is a longstanding member of ebay, I suspect he has an SF account, and he's definitely bought from people here before.

    He bid and won an item of mine, asked to lower the shipping after the fact (normal for international buyers) and now I haven't heard from him for awhile. He has about 3 hours before I open a case against him. Not sure if I should/would add him to the blacklist.

    ^ Sorry for all of the typos, I'm on my phone and it doesn't correct English well.
