Well, it's a business, not a charity.

Ha! Confusing me with your momz again, I see? If your mother is coming down hard on you for no reason, don't get jelly other InsideHoops posters have normal moms who don't get in their shit like YOURs does, ummmm k?

FYI, it was a joke. Not meant to be taken seriously. Yet, as always, no-sense-of-humor morons come out the woodwork and add their $0.02.

I feel yah man! but then I realized it is to protect the buyer which should have some protection purchasing online. I've had great success and some problems on eBay, but that's with any business you get yourself into whatever it is. But from eBay I gotta say the success outweighs the failures or problems by a landslide.

I got into eBay selling when my parents closed their gift shop of 20 yrs. They had all sorts of weird stuff from jewelry, watches, handbags, candles, lighters, pens, vases, lamps.. etc. I sold a lot of it on eBay and did unbelievably well.. it's shocking what you think has no value, someone in another part of the world would pay something ridiculous for.. and by ridiculous I mean something I felt I would just normally throw or give away I'll make like 40-80 bucks on at least.. It might not seem that much but when you sell like 20 of these items they can easily add up to 800+ bucks. Then I started to realize I can do this with other things. So I looked into places going out of business and purchased what ever I can in as much bulk as possible.. That's my semi-success story of becoming a resale/liquidator.. Also I've managed to do this with out even doing a personal business website (which I'm planning to do but eBay has been working so well for me, as well as it being a convenience factor)

I don't want to solicit so I'm going to leave the details out of it but if anyone here is interested in decent watches.. swiss army victorinox, movados, raymond weils, hamiltons... etc. pm me.. Ill send you more detail.

Back to the subject.. Just stick it out dude and don't let one transaction disappoint you.. learn from your mistakes and improve in any way you can. PEACE!

Sometimes there are d-bags but you live with it.

One of my best friends pulls in nearly 100K a year selling on Ebay.

I just had to get my dog surgery and sold some stuff on ebay, and this piece of trash prodded at me asking for more pics, if I'll take less than what it was listed at, how fast shipping would be, etc. Over a dozen messages from this guy. Over a watch.

Only for him to claim he never received item, and open a case on ebay demanding a refund.
He sure shut up quick when I sent him a picture of the delivery confirmation reciept from the post office showing delivery was made. Case dismissed.

Always do the delivery confirmation folks, its worth the $.75

Just imagine the possibilities if you branded yourself and marketed as "Goldie Locks" ... "Tranny In Action" ... "To the loaded old pervz West of the Mississippi." You can really pump bidders up, use the Buy It Now option creative and effectively and I bet you could bank a pretty penny (not as pretty as you of course, sweetheart).

It's just damn sickening that people out there of that caliber actually exists. Some people here say I'm a piece of shit, trash or whatever for just being a tomfoolery prick here and there, but perhaps they should get things in perspective, huh?
