    I like it.

    However I disagree with what it says slightly... I've notice something about when you leave the stars blank.
    For sellers who do all the automated stuff and ship on time, the bottom 3 star categories are filled in automatically at 5 stars. When the buyer does not click the 5 star rating for item description, it eventually starts to look bad on your seller page. The bottom three are 5 out of 5 and the top one is 4.9 out of 5, the higher the feedback goes, the farther apart the number will become.

    I wondered why mine looked somewhat similar - must have been the automatic 5 stars for free shipping / shipping time / communication...hence making "item as described" rated lower than the rest, which yes does start to look bad.

    A few days ago, a buyer opened a SNAD return case. We exchanged a few messages. Today they decided to keep it, canceled the return, and left feedback (below)...the power of personal and genial communications. Yay!

    Where did you locate this? I don't see anything under Messages.

    Not everyone gets the same offers. If not in your inbox, was not offered to you. I didn't get it either.

    I never got a message. But it just popped up under an item I was looking at.

    Try hovering over the "my eBay" link at the top right corner, the code was at the bottom of the drop down menu.

    No dice over here - not when I hover over it from my summary, nor when I'm looking at an item. Oh well...

    For dress shirts, how is the size of the collar related to the size of the shirt? Say, if the collar measures X from the center of the button to the center of the buttonhole, is the shirt size X or something else, say X-0.5? Thanks!

    The collar measurement should be the shirt size, the second number (usually 3x) is sleeve length

    Thanks. This shirt is not tagged, and I was wondering if you had to do some conversion with collar size like you do with untagged sportjackets (44'' pit to pit = size 42).

    Well, sleeve length from the collar.
