    -Japan is an E-DELCON country-

    Can someone point me to a link on the USPS website showing a list of the countries please? The list I see doesn't have Japan on it. I'm not trying to start anything, but I would like my ducks in a row as I am contemplating opening up to international bidders. Total newb to the international scene.

    Thanks!

    I definitely think desirability is proportional to size for RGs. Better prices and faster sales with XL and above IME.

    Japan isn't on it, but the shooz I sent out today (label purchased through ebay shipping) most definitely have a delcon tracking number. LK-somethingsomethingsomething.

    But did the label have the DELCON logos on it? All labels have a tracking number, but not all labels are actually tracked once the leave the US.

    No it did not have the DELCON logos like packages to Canada do. I'm pretty sure others have reported them being tracked all the way through in Japan, but I guess I'll find out soon enough. The conventional wisdom in the thread being the Japan is no problem, which is easing my mind somewhat.

    And thankfully a US buyer hit BIN on that other pair that was getting interest from Ukraine.

    Was is first class international or priority? I get delivery confirmation on most of my Priority, but not really the best tracking. DELCON is a first class service.

    First class, only because the shoes weren't all that valuable, Japan is supposed to be good, and the buyer has 100% feedback at 300+ so I'm confident I won't get screwed over. Based on the buyer's history and his email address containing the term "footwear," I'm pretty sure he's e-thrifting them to resell over there.

    I know that one - called The Hunt. $398 retail, sold one this week for $249 in 3XL (might have been able to push it to $299 but wanted a quick sale, and it was!). Not sure what you paid for yours - the NMLC near me had them at whatever their discount price was, plus 40% if you fill out a form giving your email address (otherwise it was 30% off the ticketed price).

    Thanks guys for your help. This buyer is less than 20 feedback and I don't trust the system to send it first class. I doubt the person pays for the item so looks like I will try the second chance offer to the next highest bidder. I don't have to cancel the transaction before offering it to another buyer right? I plan to give the current high bidder two more days to pay before I take any kind of action.

    Thanks!

    Ok, Garage Salers (Sailors).

    How long should it be taking for my auctions to be uploaded? It seems like it may be taking way too long.

    I have had it take ~hour or so to upload up to 50. Mainly because each one had 10 pictures or so. So yeah ~1.5 minute each sounds about right

    Note to self:

    Start way the fuck earlier next Thursday. So much for my regularly scheduled 10:30 listings.

    Besides that little hiccup, how do you like it so far?

    You able to get all your templates done, and just duplicate and edit as needed?
    (not sure if thats the correct way to go about it with the templates, but that is what i do)

    Works great, I like it. I really just want them all to start at 10:30...or whatever other specific time I may choose. I did the scheduled event and everything. I figured that would be the starting time, not an hour later. Oh well. First world problems I guess.
