    Wait which ones are for shirts and jackets? I need to order some stuff off of uline. Do you guys bubble wrap the bag after using the uline resealable?

    I only ship in boxes. No need to bubble wrap a shirt or jacket...they don't break easily. Shoes and other leather goods... yes.

    Art-related question... Does anyone know if there are any eBay rules against listing a painting "in the style of..." or "after..." a living artist? I've seen items listed that way on eBay, but they've all been dead artists (the names I recognized).

    Awesome, thank you! I just ordered 1000 and another 500 of the 6x3x3 boxes.

    Shoeluv, yes it is a bit odd here is the label removal...

    Unfortunately it is black pinstripe three button, but the styling looks pretty recent.

    I was thinking around $300-$350 does that sound about right? I got a great deal on it, but really want to maximize my final sale price on this piece.

    That is an ambitious price for an orphan striped jacket.

    Edit: nevermind, I didn't see it was a suit.

    even that seems a bit ambitious. More like 150-200

    This is AFTER I uploaded the effing tracking info. What the flying fudge do I have to do to avoid this?I guess I'll be adding another country to my list of countries I don't ship to.



    So I just got off the phone with Ebay Customer Support. Basically, their response is "don't ship to countries that don't offer delivery confirmation".

    I still don't understand why Ebay feels the need to ding sellers with a defect for something they have no control over. I tried to explain that, yes an item not getting delivered reflects badly on Ebay, but getting a defect rate, as a seller, also reflects badly on Ebay. I think the guy agreed with me, but doesn't really have a way to fix anything. I gave some suggestions about how they could better educate sellers, and promised I wouldn't picket in front of Ebay headquarters.

    My next order is going to replace the 6x3x3 with the 6x4x3. Some larger belts need more room. I think they're a penny more each.

    Yep, I use the 6x4x4 for large belts and multiple tie (2-4) orders.

    Sucks so hard. Seems like their form letter response to everything is becoming 'Our research (that we won't show you) says that the number one reason for buyers leaving ebay is <whatever you were dinged for>'. Sellers are left with no rebuttal to this.

    What is your tracking number? Did you try this site? http://www.trackitonline.ru/

    Have these Beretta Outdoor chinos to list. They are new, but the only think remotely resembling a tag is the dongle you see off the belt loop.

    I'm thinking that listing as NWOT is the right way to go, but since there is something physically still attached from the store, I thought I would check the pulse of moving up to NWT.

    Comments?
