Buyer was Japan
at what reputation level (color of star, whatever) do you start to become "respected"
My last shipment (yesterday) was from ULINE because they are having a huge carton sale right now. After the shipping charge and tax it only saved me like 10 cents a box, but that's ok.
Normally I buy my boxes from ebay user "topmailers". If you PM him and let him know the size you want, he will set up a listing for you if he has that size, or he will recommend some sizes close to it. I've been using his supplies for 3 or 4 years. Always ships on time and has good communication.
Pesky buyer rant:
I received my first neutral feedback from a buyer who purchased a department store brand cashmere sweater from me for $28 over a month ago (October 21).
"I was disappointed because the sweater was misshapen at bottom and seller didn't" (feedback character limit)
From what I recall, the buyer sent an offer that included an ultimatum of sorts that read "this offer only stands until 1 pm CST at which point I'll need to find another sweater." I accepted his offer, and he didn't complete the purchase for three or four days.
I didn't think the sweater was "misshapen", but I probably would have just refunded him and told him to redonate the sweater if he would have reached out before leaving feedback.
He gave you a strong warning sign.
Thanks. It was updated this morning to show delivered. Looks like delivery actually occurred on Friday, and it just took four and a half days for the information to be updated online.
I doubt that anyone pays too much attention to that. Paypal protects buyers. There is an idiot factor on ebay of about 1 to 2%, so keep your feedback above 98% and don't worry about it.
How do you accommodate a buyer's "buy it now" request for an auction item with bid?
The offering party needs to become the top bidder. Once they are top bidder you can end the listing using the "sell to highest bidder" option. At that point you can adjust the invoice so it equals the agreed amount.

Correction on this....
Apparently normal sellers get $50 Free insurance for Priority and $100 for Priority Express.
Top Rated Sellers (and Platinum and Higher Powersellers) get $100 Free insurance for any Priority shipping option.
Good to know.
Is that the Priority Mail poly mailer or are you using a generic one and sending 1st class?
Ok not sure what the heck is going on here, seems scammy...
So a few days ago I mentioned shipping to Canada. You guys were a great help walking me through what needed to be done to change the invoice, and I thank you for that. I messaged my buyer and told him where to go on his page/what to click on to ask me for a revision to the invoice. He replies with:
Maybe we have a language barrier thing going on, I don't know. Later in the evening, I receive this message from him.
The thing is, he didn't send the $140.87 amount according to paypal, he sent me a total of $97.25. I'm assuming the other amount he paid was the total including import duties/tariffs/shipping? That's all I can make of it since I didn't see that amount in any facet of our transactions. Should I report it to ebay and ask them how to proceed? I see why you guys have opted out of the international shipping program now. Good call.
