    I've been running into this off and on as well...sometimes it won't even tab down to the next one, and other times it won't pre fill brands.

    Also, My "country / region of Manufacture" was updated recently, and won't fill in unless I delete and re-choose the option again...

    It won't tab down unless you've edited another item in the same category once before in your folder already. Once you edit one shoe, you can tab through the rest of the shoes you are working on.

    Spoo I know you use garagesale, any equivalent programs for PC? I'm not sure about turbolister, might give it a chance.

    This is a great thread. I gave been buying and selling on ebay for over 10 years in Canada. I have found it getting more difficult over the years to make a decent profit. What has worked for me however is to concentrate on customer service as much as possible. While you won't make everybody happy 100% of the time you will get more repeat customers.

    I gave up on turbo lister a couple years ago. Seems to still suck I guess.

    Did you just upgrade to the latest rev they released yesterday?

    I've had to quit the program, start the program, re-download categories and info from ebay.

    whats even better is that the same buyer wants the blue one I'm posting Thursday, if I'll take $725 even. I explained I had a bidder on the gray one drop out at 800 and a 2nd bidder drop out at $833.

    If he'll come up to $750 though, it will be a discount for being a repeat buyer. [​IMG]

    So on an investment of $14 +$8 dry cleaning + $10 bespoke Norton & Son moth eaten orphan I bought because the buttons matched the Kiton, I get 3 kiton suits that sell for over $2000+, and a Paul Stuart custom-made (don't know if Samuelsohn or Adrian Jules) that I gifted.

    I'm thinking of quitting because I'm unlikely to repeat this. I don't know anyone down here that sells sulka with 14K buttons so I'm unlikely to find one hanging out in my local GW.

    hey guys, had a seller contact me about a shirt not fitting. what is the best manner of handling this. they mentioned that they've purchased a few shirts of the same make and size before. but supposedly the one i sold measures SIGNIFICANTLY out of proportion to what he expected. I did specify the tagged size but also specifically measured the p2p, arm, and length of shirt all in my listing.

    any suggestions on what i should do? I specify no returns in my listing as well.

    I did, still same thing. Checked current version, turned off and on. Odd. Just checked it for upload, no errors, so lets see. Maybe ebay reduced their mandatory fields?


    I used turbolister before I got my Mac.

    I think I still have auctions uploading from there.


    No! This is that uncut heroin that you keep chasing through the rest of your addiction. Aint no high as good as the first, but you're sure as shit gonna try.


    Thats pretty cut and dry buyers remorse. Id tell them to open a case in the resolution center if that was me. Id gamble all the beans in the can thats a no brainer win for you.

    Hey.......Anybody handled much Zegna outerwear? I'm getting ready to list a cashmere lined car coat that seems to copy some of the Loro Piana stuff.

    PM me if you know this line of coats.

    Awesome, thanks Spoo!

    He even specifically stated " If you will not take it back, how do I take advantage of the eBay guarantee?"

    I'll direct him to the resolution center. Is it just a matter of him opening up a case? I assume this will alert me and ebay will contact me?

    Ah, when I picked this up, I thought it was part of the Zegna Elements line, but Elements isn't on any of the tags/ nomenclature. This could have preceded that branding though. Just trying to figure out how to list it without Using zegna elements, which is what I wanted to use.

    My record is 290X I think. Bought a lot of pants, which included a pair of Kiton dress trousers, for what averaged out to $.43 each. Sold the Kitons for $125.

    Also sold 2x Brioni and a pair of LP out of the same lot for ~$100 each :)

    That's big time. A couple of years ago I found $546 inside an old no-namey tweed jacket I bought for $7. Still have the jacket even though it is not my size. I hated to sell such a lucky sport coat.
