There's an economy option when you ship at the post office... It would be cheaper to ship Priority, I suspect.
How did the call about the coins go?
Wow, that's shocking and almost seems unfair. I'd be pretty frustrated if I was misled into a purchase and then was expected to pay to send it back.
Had a similar event last week, purchased two dress shirts from the same seller. $6ish per shirt for first class shipping, I asked for a price on combined shipping and did not get a response. I requested an invoice with combined shipping and received 2 invoices with each individual item with the $6 per. I then went back to the auctions, noticed there was nothing in the text regarding combining shipping and decided to just pay the cost. They each arrived in individual gray tyvek bags.
Interesting, thanks for the additional information.
Quick one for the more experienced folks: Spoo had mentioned how a Short or Long has a significant impact on sale price. What about odd size SCs? I'm talking literal odd sizes, 41, 43, 45, etc. I'm guessing most buyers search or filter by their size, and most places that measure you plug you into an even number.
I have better luck setting those up as 30-day BIN or BINOBO listings vs. auctions. Without the large audience some sellers have, I'd be lucky to get a single bid in 7 or 10 days. That said - I just noticed I have a 41R Loro Piana blazer on auction (not sure why I listed it as an auction) with 1 watcher - so - that tells me it probably won't even sell.
@capnwes Hey weso, how do those seersucker blazers/ Suits do for you? I passed up on one lately, but I think that was a bit of a mistake
SUMMER CLASSIC Jos A Bank Blue SEERSUCKER Jacket Pants SUIT Mens US 46 R
Sold for $85 in 2 days... Was happy with that.....
I never pass, unless it is really dirty. I was getting about $150 a suit (no-name) last year. We'll have to see how they go this year.
Ah Shit, didn't want to hear that. Hopefully it's still there tmrw
Any Seller would encourage good will by offering combined shipping. Obviously they wont be on your radar anymore.
Some sellers might have an inventory and shipping setup that would make combining a hassle. Not disrupting that system might be worth more to them than the increased goodwill and business that would come from offering combined shipping.
Not the business choice I'd make, but I can understand it as a rational decision.
Anyone do Amazon selling? I've been dabbling in FBA and while it's a lot less profit, its a lot less work.
Good point. Another thing to consider is that combined shipping is not always less expensive. In many cases, combining two shirts into a box (which must be sent Priority, 1 - 2 pounds) is more expensive than shipping them separately by First Class. Buyers never seem to be aware of this, so instead of explaining this to them I usually give them some discount anyway. I look at it as a small volume discount.
some guy from hong kong won an auction of mine. my auctions state i ship to US only. (and he only has 2 points of rep)
he hasn't paid yet and its been two days.
can i cancel his bid and offer it as 2nd chance to the next highest bidder?
