I just sold about 15 things on ebay and I am frustrated. I'm really only frustrated with one thing. Either there are buyers out there lying (I'm pretty sure one guy is)about never getting the stuff (apparently I should add : "if insurance is not purchased I am not responsible"), or else the USPS is not reliable. This is stuff that was shipped like 3 weeks ago. Now on all my stuff I picked a flat rate shipping price and in some cases I was pretty far off in my estimate (I didn't really realize how $$ it was to ship) so I ended up going parcel post (5-9 days). I've concluded NEVER GO PARCEL POST. I also shipped some stuff UPS and haven't had a problem (everything is automatically insured to $100), but postal is cheaper for lighter stuff which most of my stuff was. What I don't want is to get negative feedback (I'm at 100% with 53 responses) from either 1) a scumbag who got the item and is lying or 2) someone who really didn't get the item but chose not to get insurance (which I made optional). Lastly I don't want to be financial responsible for these lost items (which I don't think I will be since I made insurance optional and they didn't choose it, but I never said "not responsible, etc" but I don't think that matters) Any tips/ideas/suggestions for this newbie seller? I don't have a lot more stuff to sell but some (like a very expensive microphone list $4500 and a mic preamp/power supply list $1700). I held off on selling those bc I wanted to learn about selling and see I have a lot to learn. thanks for any help.
