What's the big deal with a partial refund? I'd say go for it.
I would tell him to Buy it now and wait for an invoice.
If you tell him to bid until he is the leading bidder, you can then end listing with option to sell to the highest bidder. Then send the invoice with the shipping adjusted to equal the agreed amount.
Or do the partial refund. There are no rules against that.
So this might be helpful to others in the future. Since I got conflicting responses, I decided to call eBay to make sure. Here's what they said:
Basically, since there is a bid, the seller is not allowed to offer discounts or refunds, per their policy. Obviously, you can and you probably wouldn't get caught, but the lady I spoke with said that's against the rules. Buuuuut, she said that the buyer could buy it now and then I could send an invoice and take off the shipping fee in the invoice.
Obviously this would be for very specific instances where the discount is similar to shipping cost, but it's an option.
I give my repeat buyers discounts and partial refunds all the time. Plus ebay even has a rewards program application that lets me give regular customers a percentage back.
You can still do the end item with option to sell to the highest bidder. That's a real feature.
There are 10 ways to skin a cat and all work as long as you get the item sold, but yea, just do a partial refund after he pays or send an updated invoice. Both work.
Ref. the rewards program, I signed up for it. Its on my listings but now I can edit the percentage or max amount refunded per transaction. Wanted to do 2% or $10 max. You just access it though the ebay application area right?
Yeah through the app.
That feeling when you finish auctions 24 hours early though....
Had to google this.
Is anybody here a Ray-Ban expert? I have a pair of vintage B&L wayfarers, black pearl(y?) arms and the top as well. I'd keep them and rock them like a mofo but the slant looks dumb as hell on my face, and an arm is broken off. So, I have a 2 part question.
1. I want to sell these and hopefully make enough to get a pair of folding Clubmasters, so are they worth sending in to get repaired/cleaned up, or do they get sold as is?
2. If the former, where would I send them?
Quite proud of this today.
Congrats! Next stop.....one million feedback!
