    Does a neutral feedback hurt your percentage? What does it do?

    No, Feedback percentage is not affected by neutral feedback. It just stands out like a sore thumb against otherwise 100% positive reviews.

    Someone messages me about a pair of vintage Air Jordan's:

    This is the auction title:

    **Original 1997** NIKE AIR JORDAN 13 BLACK/RED SZ 4Y - WOMEN'S SZ 5.5

    I message him back and say "the size is in the auction title, item specifics, and photographs." He responds by saying:

    I respond by telling him that they are a 4 youth, which is a 5.5 women's.

    Later he asks:

    I wondered that too. Never found any definitive answer on that.

    Alright, last question about this, I swear. I talked with another customer service person from eBay. She said that I would have to send a message to the buyer, explaining that I need to refund his money, cancel the transaction and then relist the item with an agreed upon BIN price. I sent him the message and he responded with something like, "I can send check", so I sent another message explaining it again. It's too bad eBay doesn't have some sort of liaison service for when there is a language barrier. I'm writing every message in English and then copying that into Google Translate and adding that too.

    Anyway, I went to refund his money, but since it was through the GSP, I'm only able to refund the money that was transferred to my Paypal. When he accepts the cancelled transaction, will the rest of his shipping cost be refunded as well?

    This is turning out to be a huge pain in the ass for an approximately $15 profit.

    You should be able to refund him, then resend an invoice, at which point he can fix the address and repay. Shouldn't be any reason to do a totally new transaction.

    That's what I was thinking at first. It seems like the easiest possible action, but resending an invoice isn't in my available "actions". Am I missing that?

    Seems like maybe you have to go into order details and from there you can resend an invoice...I had to do one the other day and it took a while, but I did figure it out.

    Another question regarding feedback, if buyer leaves negative feedback for customs charges, can eBay remove if listing states that customs / duties are buyer's responsibility and that items will not be marked down? Buyer messaged me asking for email so he can bill me :brick:

    Customs charges are always the buyer's responsibility. It's his country after all that's charging him!

    Yes, feedback regarding customs charges is removable. Messages asking for email addresses are also against policy.

    X Post from Thrifting thread:

    Hey guys,

    I've taken a stab at creating a useful thread for everyone. I've been looking for a resource that has current brand labels, and couldn't find anything, so I decided to try to create one. Please add to it if you have more pictures, or suggestions. Totally open to compiling more and better information. Here you go. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    On the sage advice of @Evil Abed , I've decided to turn this into a private Google Doc. If you'd like access, please PM me with your email address, and I will grant you access.

    Yes. That one is focussed more on the makers, suit tags and such. This is focussed more on actual brand labels, and how the current ones look. So you can tell a recent Zegna from a 15 year old Zegna. I suppose there are people here who could do that form the maker labels as well, but I'm not one of them. At least not yet.
