People don’t like feeling they have been ripped off. If someone is selling something at yard sale for a dollar, they don’t want to learn that they could have received $50.00 for it.
It’s completely illogical but we are not logical creatures.
Thanks Ryanne curious how you would price? I think I listed a set of 4 for 39.99 (with best offer). I keep waffling between thinking that they are vintage and cool and just something you could pick up at Target.
Might be an attempt at a longer grift. I wonder if this “person” just sends out blasts with a a sad story to start up a relationship. The item isn’t important. What is important is that that the seller is stupid enough to believe this is a real person with a real problem. If a correspondence can be started than who knows what the buyer might start asking for. (i.e I can only pay by international money order and the money order is for 1k extra can you wire me the refund).
@hausfrau They can’t been too vintage because the base of the containers are made of plastic. It’s weird. The tops appear very vintage but I can’t imagine the bottoms are older than the 1990s.
Does anyone know Japanese recycling codes? They may even be newer. I wonder if that is a number for number 1 plastic.
I am so proud when I get “p.s. they are so cute!” from Ryanne!12/21/2019 at 4:52 pm in reply to: An Amazing Offer from a “Buyer” aka Here’s Your Pre-Holiday Laugh #71934
and you must admit, the offer if interesting.12/21/2019 at 4:52 pm in reply to: An Amazing Offer from a “Buyer” aka Here’s Your Pre-Holiday Laugh #71933
This is one of those emails where you can’t quite tell if it is a scam, or if it is a “serious” offer from a legitimate crazy person.12/17/2019 at 2:35 pm in reply to: Ebay Returns -“Changed My Mind Option” on items that are set for no returns? #71807
That is kind of what I figured. I actually like it. It weakens the buyers position if they come back with an INAD claim.12/16/2019 at 9:05 am in reply to: Buyer says “I need to return the air chamber. It was the wrong item.” #71711
I would write back to the buyer and ask for clarification. Politely ask them if there was an error in your listing. If they clarify and say the read the listing wrong, you can then politely inform them you don’t take returns as stated in your listing.
Th buyer can still file an “Item Not A Described” claim (and then you will be stuck taking the return), but they will have to figure that out for themselves.
A lot of people can’t be bothered making a return if someone doesn’t hold their hand through the process.12/16/2019 at 8:59 am in reply to: Need advice on listing dvds cds and books – efficiently! #71710
@antique Frog – you aren’t kidding! Check those books! Scraps of paper used as bookmarks make for great scavenging. Amongst the trasures I have found in books:
– 1960 M&M wrapper (it sold immediately for 10 bucks I priced way too low)
– an old continental airline ticket
– a 1960s European Postal Money order
– Countless Garfield Book marks
– and my favorite – Cash glorious cash
How many items in your store have people actively watching? You may just have run out of people to make offers to. The system doesn’t allow you to keep sending the same offer to the same person.
I have 1500 items in my store, and approximately 430 people watching various items. There are many times when I cycle through all of the available watchers and loose the options to send to an offer.
Eventually they come back.12/09/2019 at 9:13 am in reply to: Calculating Shipping with China Patters & Variations #71462
Tis a conundrum indeed. I wish Ebay would like you list individual item weights and also list weight of packaging. This would allow for better shipping estimates at check out.
The dinner plates are the heavy items. I’ll probably split those out to a new listing.12/08/2019 at 11:45 am in reply to: Calculating Shipping with China Patters & Variations #71443
Less about the 30 cents a month in listing fees and more about the one-stop shopping convenince for the customer. But I see your point. Heaviest item are the large plates – maybe I will just pull those out.
