    Saw a book at GW titled "Words that sell", which listed words & phrases for conveying certain aspects and allegedly stirring desire to purchase. Did not kop.

    There's some level of irony to selling a book based on words that sell....

    Thanks for the info. No joke about blocking the low rating ppl, might spend some time going over that. I'm 100% for tracking 498/498.


    I don't know how you maintain perfect feedback, I had almost gone 6 months and got a neg. Probably didn't deserve this one, time will tell. You guys must dedicate some time to squelching that shit. Spoo, you're about to have a perfect record, your last neg was in 8/13. That's amazing @ 200+ auctions a week.

    What color is this? Thinking the texture is blanking my mind.

    Also what is this pattern/coloring anything special or just multi-colored houndstooth?

    *Le Sigh*

    More ebay morons.

    This guy opened a case saying the jacket was "definitely black, not gray."

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=231240077078

    So, PSA guys: Charcoal is black, not gray. And that collar, which contrasts the color of the jacket pretty obviously, is black black.

    (Don't worry. I was happy to own the jacket again, so I offered him a full refund for a return)

    Hey guys!

    Do you use a third-party software for tracking your sales/profits on eBay items? Like purchase cost/shipping cost/winning bid etc. etc.?

    I'd love something sexier than my Excel tabs :X

    Iuse Outright, which taps your Paypal account for info. Sorta does, sorta doesn't have line item info on individual sales, but it's solid for an overview and it does all of that automatically.
