relatively new to this, but is it normal that the prices buyers are willing to pay to vary so wildly within Europe ?

had brand new Zegna shirts go unsold for weeks, until I offered "international" shipping and they sold well above the asking price

still got a bunch of new and like-new stuff, so I'm just curious if anyone has recommendations/experience on maximizing sales, ftr all private sales, spring cleaning if you will

Directly to my personnal email (which is visible in my store contact info), from the adress at the top of my screenshot
I would ignore it unless you get something from eBay. Assuming you have similar laws in Canada as we do in the US, you have the right to resell used (or new) goods.

Thank you!
I am in France and we have that right in the law too, I am more concerned about Ebay reacting stupidly to a report than about any legal action

If you get a request through eBay, there won’t be much you can do about it. I’ve had an item taken down wrongfully, and it sucks. I also threw away everything I owned from that company and told them as such.

That stinks... @florent, if you need me to throw away any Cucinelli, please send it to me and I will properly dispose of it for you. I'll be sure to send them an email afterwards.

Getting hit with a VERO is like winning the lottery in reverse. Everyone selling on eBay is holding a ticket, your numbers got picked.

Guy wants to return a $800 jacket for "item doesn't fit". I don't take returns. Can ebay force a return on me? Can I get away with denying this request?

Was that the Sealskinz debacle?

I was an authorized reseller for Sealskinz for quite a while.
Oh, that's right... It was the bicycle return debacle I remember. The Sealskinz I think you mentioned some returns on them. Either way, my small store has thus far managed to avoid the dreaded VERO monster. Fortunately, I don't have to be as careful on FB Marketplace.
