Re: Helpful Tips For ebay/Paypal/Shipping

A++++

Great tips, plus you can order free priority boxes online and just have them delivered or pick up at the p.o.
Usually shipped in packages of ten, you can order for FREE as many as you want:)

Re: Helpful Tips For ebay/Paypal/Shipping

NOne of this matters when sellers want payment as a gift.Its soooo stupid ,raise the price if it a problem.Its such a small % to make sure things are on the up an up


as far as buying and selling on this forum. There really isnt buyer protection threw paypal . pretty much everything I sell here has a delievery confirmation number or tracking number. It is a wise thing to do if you are selling on here to get one or the other on the items you are selling on here. without this paypal will rule in the buyers favor and more than likely refund their money if they say they did not recieve the item.


MONEY ORDERS,I have no problem accepting them from you.If you do not come thru you will have a neg feedback left for you.Just that simple

Re: Helpful Tips For ebay/Paypal/Shipping

nice job steve -

but this statement

"As far as trying to get your money back for a item not as described or damaged. this has to be taken up with the seller. If they prove with tracking its been shipped and deleivered its not paypal problem."

My experience(s) the buyer only needs to say the item is not as described (ebay auction) - provide "proof" they have shipped it back and paypal refunds the money. I noticed this scam on some computers and IP phones I sold awhile back - the guy bought my stuff took the lic information and some parts. I presented paypal with information on this and they did nothing.

the auction was for under 250.00 it stated 'as is and no returns' - paypal reversed the payment before I even received the items back.


anyway - thanks for taking the time to write that up ...if anybody, you should know all the ins and outs of the BS side of selling/buying big_smile

I found that using the FREE USPS Priority VHS tape box when shipping pedals works perfect...shipping is always under $5 no matter where it goes and only takes 2-3 days...and the box fits 1 pair of bubble wrapped pedals perfectly!

+1 for this being a sticky. Thanks Steven.

Can anybody out there provide the same information in regards to Canada Post?

Guess i'll have to watch for that lol...

Anybody have international shipping tips??
