    Your condition description in the your body is misleading

    Condition : Excellent! Feels rough due to the Silk-Linen blending.

    --
    You cannot put the word excellent, when the back seam is separating. Even if that is a quick fix, it does need to be mentioned.

    Sounds like you caught a big break by eBay! But for future, I'd at least mention the flaw

    +1 I never use words like excellent, mint, like new, or any ratings at all. All of my items are called 'nice preowned' and I tell buyers to look at my years of feedback and decide if they want to buy the item. If they dont like that, too bad and move on.

    Congrats! Where do you even find this information within Ebay? I have no idea what my limits are.

    Oh yeah don't worry... This rookie mistake will NEVER happen again that's for sure! From what I understood, 'Excellent with loose seam' would have been enough to win the case in the first place.
    Thrift gods are upon me :eek: I think what saved me is the awful attitude of the buyer (actual insults in e-mails, etc.)... His feedback was against eBay policy too.

    What did eBay say was against policy here?

    "Misrepresented the sports jacket as excellent and it was badly worn. Stay away!"

    I don't really know what lead them to the decision there but when I was on the phone with a rep she told me that every buyer was entitled to its own opinion but she clearly told me that if he lied on the condition on the item on the feedback it was not okay. Sorry it's been a month so I don't exactly remember what she said.

    Mine has always been on my ebay "All Selling" page. I am wondering if guys with stores don't have this by default?

    My seller limits did not appear on my summary page until after I called and asked eBay to raise my limits...after that - poof - it suddenly appeared.

    Did the "Regional Rate A" shipping option disappear for you guys in paypal?

    No big deal cause I will sometimes go to USPS.com and generate a label, which gives me one. however, this time, I was able to generate in usps.com but no tracking # provided.

    Hmm, I guess I won't worry about it too much for now. I still haven't hit 400 items at any given time.


    I'm not sure about PayPal, but I sent a package RRA yesterday through Ebay, and it worked just fine.
