    It reminded me a bit of settlers "trading" Native Americans worthless trinkets for valuable land. Parallel here of course is eBay "trading" me these worthless colored pixels for continued/increased sales which they of course profit from. Kudos to them, I'm sure it works for most. Top rated seller discounts on the other hand, now that's something I can get excited about!

    Yes, you want the barcode going longways down the tube rather than circling around the tube.

    I love it, great title. I love this jacket to, I wear a 44R and squeezed into it trying to tell myself that it didn't look too bad with the sleeves riding 1 ½" up my wrist [​IMG]

    I have one of those size issues, this Banana Republic Linen chore coat is tagged a M but it fits me a L a little loose. I had my son try it on and it was baggy on him and he normally wears a M. I put M (L) in the title, listed the tagged size than added this blurb "Please check the measurements, I wear a 44R jacket and a large coat and this fits me with room to spare. I had my son who is a Medium try it on and it was very big on him. So unless you plan to wear a few layers or like your jacket really baggy please verify against the measurements below."

    After trying it on I am tempted to keep it, but I have to clean some stuff out. My eBay room is looking like an episode of the hoarders.

    Its up to you Shoeluv. If you list the size labeled, and give measurements for that size, you are clearing yourself from any sizing issues related to SNAD. If you give the blurb you have written, I strongly suggest you still put M (tagged size) in the title only, and also Medium ONLY in the item specifics. From there you can keep that blurb in the listing, but do know that on a rare occasion, that could still hurt you. A buyer can claim, well the seller told me this would fit if I am a Large, and it doesn't, so SNAD!

    Its a gray area most of the time. But just using listed size, and using measurements for that size, you are clearing yourself as best you can!

    I'm listing a vintage PRL blazer, old enough that the size tag has fallen off into the inside pocket. Do you think I should include a photo of it to show the tagged size?

    I have an item that is large and weighs 1lb 12oz. To ship it Reg A is $7.55 and regular priority by weight is $7.17. Can you use a normal priority label on a regional box?

    I don't see why not, if you cover the Regional markings with Priority stickers and do the measurements and weight when calculating shipping...hopefully I'm reading into this wrong and you're not really fretting over 38 cents, and instead just don't have any standard Priority boxes, but do have RRA boxes.
