i've been rebuilding my platform and the 'bay will not be taking part
Please share your new platform strategy. Looks like I’ll need one as well. :(

Also, why is that guy allowed to keep scamming people?

Just received a message from ebay stating a $69.00 charge will be deducted from my bank account because of a shipment I made using Ebay's international standard delivery. How do I go about making sense of this charge? I am relatively new to selling on ebay and I do not weigh my shipments but I dont believe the package was over 66 lbs nor too large.

Yeah, I sold a pair of those a year or so ago. I actually kinda dig the colorway. But I am admittedly a bit strange.
The GH is crazy popular for some reason. Nice job!

I guess it makes sense to post a flip brag here, but I actually meant to post in the Vintage Shoe thread where I shared them a few days ago.

Update to my $69.00 shipping charge. After speaking with a couple reps it appears I misinterpreted Ebay International Shipping. I thought that as long as the item wasn't over the size allowed and under 66 lbs it would only be a moderate shipping fee. Looks like I need to finally order me a shipping scale.

Going over some recent sales statistics, I find that 7 of my last 18 sales have been to 0 feedback buyers.

Out of those 7, 6 of them clicked on "BIN" outright as opposed to making offers (I offer BINOBO, and almost always accept reasonable offers).

My initial cringe when I see a 0 feedback buyer is slowly waning.
