    Hah, no. Vintage PRL tux; not much padding. I measured twice, listed, didn't believe it was right when I read what I had typed, and measured again. 16.75".

    What do you guys put into the tracking # slot when you and a buyer decide to do a local pick-up? The transaction was completed without that option, and I do not want to get dinged for not updating within my handling time. Just make something up?

    Making it up wouldn't do any good, it has to be scanned to count anyway now. You're fine, as long as you don't fall below 90%, no dings for that.

    Just packaged my first shipment to former SSR, Azerbaijan. I hope it survives the trip!

    Currently dealing with a buyer from the UK who wants to deal outside of eBay because he doesn't want to use the global shipping program. He has good feedback and seems legit in the email, but he's asking that I declare the package to be less than $20 even though he's sending me over $100. Is that normal?

    Don't do a deal outside of eBay unless the conversation started outside of eBay. If the auction is still active, you can go in and change shipping options so that you offer priority or express to the UK only. Don't change the declaration price. If he has a problem with it, block him and don't worry about it.

    I have had one of these as well, I am sure the big sellers get these all of the time. My point of view is; is this single sale worth losing my eBay business if eBay finds out or going to jail/civil fine if US/UK customs finds out? 99% of the time you probably get away with it (unless he contacted you through eBay...). I wouldn't do it, but that is just me.
