    The literal definition of pristine is unspoiled, original condition.

    On my own personal ratings guide, I'd put that at a 7 or so - little nicks like that are noticeable when wearing.

    PSA, don't forget, Q2 estimated taxes need to be sent by next Monday.

    first of all, relax. i wasn't trying to get over on anyone. i'll reiterate that im a relative beginner to selling high end clothing. if it ISN'T pristine like i stated, it wasn't done intentionally to fool buyers

    that said, i've yet to run into an issue. i guess i need to be more diligent with how i rate my items and next time i know to look for those types of flaws.

    I hate rude eBay buyers.

    Guy emails offer of $10 shipped on a D&G shirt listed at $40 plus shipping fixed price listing. I reply politely thanking him for his offer but declining.

    His reply:

    "let me offer you another way...... if I pay your asking price, can you have the sleeves shortened to 32/33 and shirt length shortened by 2 inches? thanks"

    Welcome to the block list.

    I try not to respond to requests like that, but there have been a few where I sent back my best offer... Which was $10 higher than my ask price. If I'm going to subvert the free market, I want premium pricing dammit. :)

    I'd have been tempted to answer "Yes, No Problem...."

    Time to respond with "yeah, I know the seller of that jacket, I'm glad my stain removal advice worked, that poop stain was extreme. Glad his jacket finally went to a deserving home!"

    ...of course, that could make problems for the other seller, but still, fun...

    Does "Report a Buyer" notify the buyer? Got left a neutral feedback and it's a new buyer who's only left neutral or negative feedbacks. I'd like to have a Plan B though if the report a buyer fails, and work things out with him to make it positive.
