Hex yea, and haven't had either weekend yet
I just had a guy send a lowball offer on a pair of boots using an ended listing as justification. He also informed me that I would never sell a USED pair for my list price (which is currently 20% off a reasonable price). Given that that pair has eight watchers in a week, I'm confident they will sell. I blocked his A$$...
Like you would actually go... yeah you're right, I'll just give them to you then.
Why I love my GO/NO GO method with BIN.
Only time I see them is when they add terms, I screwed up the auction, or they've sent 3 lowball offers and were blocked and emailed me with a fourth lowball offer.
That, and I'm having a great sales week... I don't need the $5 profit he's offering.
Is the usps slow? I heard the republicans shut down the government or something...could that have something to do with it?
The usps is supposed to be entirely self supported and should not be affected by the shutdown. That's what they told me.
My packages were a little slow this week. 2-3 day priority instead took 3-4 days. Could have been because of Columbus day last week?
Columbus Day is likely to blame.
Yea, I had a guy leave "took a week to arrive one state over" when he purchased Thursday night (and I shipped on Tuesday) b/c of the holiday.......jerk. I was away Friday (had my vacation notice up) and ebay does not count Saturday and Sunday as shipping days, Monday post office is closed and the package shipped Tuesday Priority Mail...
You are doing it wrong. My post office picked up my packages on Columbus Day.
My post office did not pick up on Monday or Tuesday when the order was put in (for Tuesday)...they must have gotten too busy. I had to wait till Wednesday and they finally followed through.
Just a really quick note on this... its not a $5 one week deal. its a marathon, not a race. Every buck counts. TOTALLY Not minimizing the dickishness of the buyer, just saying.
Thanks, guys. I guess a holiday would make sense, but my tracking hasn't updated for several days (a first) and I noticed Spoo and others experiencing weirdness, and also reports of on-site tomfoolery from a couple SF'ers I'm shipping things to. I keep forgetting the post office is 'independent', though.
Very true, however a $5 profit on an item I paid $40 is not worth my time, yet. At my current volume I figure that I need to make a minimum of $20 per item to justify the time spent. When I'm at your level, my attitude will be different.
