    Use the form at the Post Office. Much easier. I've always had problems trying to print it for APO addresses...

    Thanks, does it look like page 3 of this: https://about.usps.com/forms/ps2976a.pdf ? Would be nice if I could just print it here and get it done. If there is a simpler form at the PO I'll just wait until Monday.

    Horsebit floral pattern, or are those not horsebits?

    Seems like that would work. I usually grab a stack at the PO once every so often.

    I usually cover all the bases with bridle / horse bit / stirrup (which those more resemble to me)... Hermes?

    And a fake-as-fuck Hermes on a paper plate...

    Oh, nice! I think BB, Hermes and maybe some Ferragamo have the market cornered on nice horse-tack-type ties.

    Agreed, I was actually quite impressed with it. My first thought was Hermes, slightly saddened it was BB, but better than a no name brand. $1.99!

    Looks like a real Hermes scarf tie to me, though I only glanced quickly on my phone so maybe I missed something.

    I think negative feedback here was definitely warranted....

    Can't be fake, ½ the price is going to an Evangelical Church... I think that breaks at least 3 commandments

    Question for anyone with experience or advice.
    Sold a woman's belt. Buyer paid 2nd day with instant payment(not sure how that works).
    Address was paypal verified, shipped it off the next day(payment was late at night).
    Tracking shows went out for delivery, BUSINESS OUT OF BUSINESS NOTICE LEFT. Not sure if they will send it back or what.
    I checked out the receipt and see buyer is NON US verified(address in California).
    If the item is returned by USPS do I contact and attempt to resend or just refund?

    I hope, somehow, the buyer can pick it up. I don't even know what the notice left said.

    Sidenote, not to sound like a chauvinist but facts are facts, this was the third of a 3 women's belts sold.
    This was the fastest payer which is a poor record.
    Auction ended one night, she paid, not next day but the day after late at night. Usually, I send invoice at that point and was about to when payment received.
    The other two belts were, invoice sent after 2 full days of non payment. Contact made after another 4 days to check up and make note that I would open non payment case but give them 2 more days at least(8 days min).
    1 paid 1 day after contact(6 days after auction), the other 2 days after I opened non payment, 10 days.

    That is piss poor.

    Follow up, it states
    Order Status: CANCELLED in paypal, wtf?
    Has an issue refund link next to it. Is this some foreigner scamming? Says non US Verified.
    I want to wait for item to be returned or at least know USPS is returning it before refunding.
    Is that the proper action?

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Call eBay and ask them, they aren't going to hide from you what is going on but you have to ask first.

    Have people started listing Shorts and Hawaiian shirts yet? I always feel out of sync with the rest of the country weather wise due to living in the PNW.

    I've sold at least 25 aloha shirts this year. Seems to be picking up in the last couple of weeks.

    Anyone know if you can purchase insurance at post office for a label printed online? Have an international package over $500 so can't get insurance online but would want to get online savings (eBay doesn't have EMS option). Or do you have to get both insurance and label together at post office?

    Got a buyer with zero feedback, account opened in Jan of this year. Proceed with caution? Is eBay more likely to side with me (100+ positive) should he try something funny?
