Hey guys I've run into a bit of a problem--looking for some advice. A guy from Russia with 0 feedback did a BIN on a cassette deck I had up. I don't have anything about 0 feedback buyers or not shipping to Russia in my listings (but I think I will after this), and now I'm not quite sure what to do. I was going to send it out via registered mail, but when I went to the post office, the lady said I couldn't do registered. The only option was priority (20lb package) which only tracks it out of the US. My understanding was that if a buyer files a "did not receive item" dispute, which seems fairly common for Russia, I would need definite proof that it was delivered to their door--which, according to the lady at the Post Office, is not possible for this package. Is there anything I can do besides send it out priority and hope for the best? Is it possible to just cancel the transaction on the grounds that he has no feedback, given that I don't mention it in my listing?

Fancy Lights and New Backdrop
^Just in time for the shells I sent you
F'n sharp! Makes the shoes look brandy new.
You could....but probably shouldn't. For the time being, eBay is protecting sellers from receiving negative feedback for lost or long delivery packages to Russia and Brazil. YOu know it's bad when the USPS won't even back the service. The ship time on them recently has been 4+ weeks, due to hold up or even confiscation in Russian customs. I stopped shipping to Russia about a month ago, and posted about it here. It is unfortunate, I had a lot of buyers there, since most people won't mess with it anymore.
Very impressive. What lights and camera are you using?
D3100 w/ stock 18-55 lens.
1) Lowel Rifa 55 for my main light source on the left side
1) Lowel Tota w/ umbrella as a fill light on the right side.
What backdrop are you using? I had been using backside of wrapping paper with great results and more recently a 30 cent large sheet of cardstock paper form walmart with great results. Really pleased how my recent tie pictures came out after a quick white balance fix and color correction.
Spoilered because they've all been posted in thrift thread already
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Savage Seamless Background Paper, 107" wide x 12 yards
A bit pricy and WAY more then I need, but it should last a long time as I have maybe 4 backdrop's worth of material when I mess up the one I have. I have a large piece taped to the wall and a smaller 2'x3' piece cut out to use for pants, ties and shoes.
Do you have any seams where it meets your table or whatever you use to stage? Or do you just only shoot towards the wall and only towards the table? I have a spare bedroom I'm thinking of converting into a hobby/thrift room (already turned one into a home gym) and trying to figure out how I want to set everything up. I've been looking at drafting tables on craigslist, seems like a good idea. Large white table that tilts and adjusts height and they can be had fairly cheap.
Nice! That's close to $1k in lighting.
