    I have the same thing but it's mostly just to deter try-on buys. I don't think I've ever done the restocking fee yet although I've only had 3 returns.

    As you can see above, 25 out of my last 26 returns were due to fit, hence a restocking fee.

    Two weeks ago I had a return because a belt didn't fit properly. WTF?

    Thought that was crazy....until this weekend I got a return because a tie bar doesn't fit. Lol

    Yeah my restocking fee is just a deterrence measure, which has seemed to work ok, I've never actually withheld it.

    I see. Maybe us flat earthers will join you soon enough. I'd be interested in hearing why Spoo doesn't offer returns - I assume it's because he sells so many high-end women's items.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying anyone should or shouldn't offer returns. I do, mainly because ebay will force you too if the buyer wants to anyway. I'd rather the buyer return it easily because it doesn't fit (paying the 10% fee + return shipping) than lie and say it was not as described and have me pay everything....or worse, send back the item intentionally ruined like eazye's luggage.

    One thing I've noticed during the hassle free return process is when you go to give a refund, you have no option to do partial sale or partial restock or partial shipping refund. Again, I've only done one and not had to worry about it, but would like to know what to do if you don't want to gouge someone with a 50$ restock fee, but still want to charge one for less.

    Thanks for all the info Wes.

    Also, my point of view is coming from also having about 50% consignments at this point. It's one thing to take returns on your own items but another to start taking returns on consignments where you have already paid the consignor. Just putting it out there.

    Ebay does make it easy and I'm sure most people would not take advantage of the return policy.

    Its a good day for it since they just announced the new ones today.

    The 13-inch version features a Haswell processor, while the 15-inch version comes equipped with a Crystal Well processor..

    The 13" is up to 9 hours battery and the 15" is 8 hours. I've been waiting on this to pull the trigger myself.

    Can you shed some light on us as to what and how those processors work?
    Im not really techy techy, but do enjoy the casual surface conversation.

    bumping to ask a question. Do you guys spring for USPS tracking when you go the 1st class route?

    don't know that I'm the best guy to do that, but the haswells run about 10-15% faster than the ivy bridge which runs about 20% faster than mine. Plus, they're integrating the latest graphics processing, the iris that some have claimed is like 90% more processing than the previous generation (I'm always skeptical of %%%%). All of this extra power and still it consumes less power. In the OS, they've implemented compressed memory which will means you won't have the shuffling and slow down while things are moved in and out of memory, plus because the iris is so much more powerful, they're moving cpu tasks over to the graphics processor.

    Add to that, 802.11 AC which gives you gigabit wireless, thunderbolt 2.0 which is screaming fast, an onboard 1080p video camera built in it starts to get impressive. They also went to the latest flash storage, 1600 mhz memory, its now under 3/4" thick, weighs less than 3.5 pounds and gets you an extra hour of battery. the best screen on the planet.

    all for $200 less than the model you would have bought yesterday.

    already on my list for christmas.

    ah, when I priced it out it was adding .90. for the difference I just mailed the box for 5.25.

    but, it was late. I could have read it wrong.

    I'd reply that that's the whole effing point of having an Ebay store. Sorry for the loss... Chalk it up as a lesson learned.
