    It sucks but you should refund him. Like SeaJen said, you need to include measurements. I learned this as well and plan to revisit my listings tonight.

    Also, did I see anyone here at the Goodwills in Smyrna or in Marietta off of Whitlock tonight?

    Ugh. Some tool on eBay offered me $50 less than asking for an item, then wanted 10 days to pay. 10 days! He got mad when I rejected his offer.

    Then he comes back with "I can pay in 7 days." Then, "3 days." So with what I'm gathering, since he can magically pay in 3 days, was he trying to scam me into giving him 10 days before? :censored: :brick:

    I would tell him to BIN when he is ready to purchase and you can refund him the difference. Until then it will remain listed.

    Yeah, that's basically what I did. Rejected the offer, told him to BIN and he would in theory have 6 days to pay (2 days until unpaid buyer case opens, 4 days until I can close the case). I told him he could try to make another offer, but since I now know about the payment situation, so it would definitely have to be higher for me to consider it. He should have just kept his mouth shut and I probably would have taken the offer.

    If you were listing a Jos A Banks suit made by EZ, how would you write the headline? Both names? Just Zegna? Would anyone care to throw out a sample?

    I think the buyer is being quite reasonable and fair. If a suit is represented as NWT is a reasonable assumption that the pants would have some material in the waist for letting out.

    I'm not sure why I noticed, but then, I'm listing stuff at 1:00AM on a Thursday...

    Why does the Country/Region of Manufacture dropdown on the Ebay selling manager list include Antarctica? I wonder how many listings get created with Antarctica selected?

    I was really close from Oct on, but I kept missing it by less than $1000.

    Apparently the number one export for Antarctica is telephones. Hmmm, Whodathunkit

    Also, it seems they eat a lot of chocolate covered lobster there too.

    So if the waist had been let out to 34 that likely means they were originally 32 (assuming they had the standard 2 inches to let). The jacket is a 42? That would make the suit a drop 10? Sounds to me like you might have mismatched pants.

    I don't think they're mismatched

    Congrats, Brian & Wes! This prompted me to check and realized that I've hit "Silver" status! But damn, "Gold" seems like a long way from here!

    Thanks. Took me about a year to go from Silver to Gold. I never thought I would be able to do it. Now I have my sights set on the next level. Probably won't be this year, but I'm gonna try.
