    Hey guys, have a quick question.

    When paypal/ebay sends you your tax information for transactions done throughout the year, what do they calculate your taxable income as?

    Is taxable income the total of any purchases/inflow, or is it the total inflow- total outflow(payments, etc)?

    Hope this makes sense. Thanks.

    Only inflow/income for business transactions (meaning friends and family purchases don't count towards it.) The outflow/expense tracking will be on you, otherwise you will be on the hook for taxes on the entire paypal recorded amount.

    Question for people who do both BIN and Auctions. So a lot of my items have multiple watchers, which is rare for me. I do Good-til-Cancelled listings primarily, and after a 30 day cycle, reduce prices gradually. Still have watchers, still no offers. I understand that having watchers doesn't necessarily mean the item is super desirable, but it should mean something, right? Anyway, I'm thinking of sending them to a 10 day auction. When I do so, do the watchers get informed by ebay that their watched item is now an auction listing? My fear is that they'll just get a message saying that their watched item listing has now ended, and them thinking that somebody must've bought it.

    I believe they get a notice that the item has been relisted. I've gotten this message before on items I've been watching that were BIN at least.

    No, he didn't. Clearly country of origin matters, but such questions should be asked before purchase. Regardless, I've offered a return from his initial message.

    Respect to all those who deal with this type of thing on a regular basis...

    Do you have a link to the listing?

    I have these soft arms that pin on via a little tab at the top. I don't always use them, but when I really want something to look nice, they help fill the sleeves out the way they would look on a person.

    Not sure where to get these; mine came with my mannequin when I bought it from a retail store that was getting rid of theirs.

    (That's not my usual tie, either; I was using that one with a couple of vintage suits.)

    You could definitely make those with long tube socks. Nice.

    I have two pairs of corneliani for PRL pants in size 34. Same store so I'm guessing same donor. Would you sell them together?

    They're pleated, but I think they'd do well. One is linen and the other is wool.

    So, I have my first buyer from Russia. Meant to avoid that, but apparently I didn't set up my shipping restrictions correctly on that Garagesale template. Anyway, the shipping address and name that I received through ebay are in Cryllic. How the heck do I print a label for that? Ebay/Paypal can't seem to print it, the USPS web site says the characters copy/pasted are invalid, I'm stumped.

    Good to know - I didn't want to run it through google translate in case something came back incorrect.

    Did you guys get the free listings promotion yet? It's already the 7th and nothing. The past few months, ebay has showered me with 20000 free BINs and variations on that. Nothing for 2014? Thanks.

    One just ended yesterday, and I have the 500 free still going for my normal monthly amount.

    Getting ready to upgrade again, to an Anchor Store subscription. 2500 free insertions a month. That's a lot of SUCCULENT beaver.

    Accidentally left my jacket at my friend's house. It's a 60/40 (cotton/nylon) and it smells like smoke b/c my friend smokes cigarettes!

    I searched on the adv function but can anyone advise me on how to get rid of the smoke? Dry clean? I put the jacket in my shower to steam it out and nothing
