As far as feedback goes i dont elieve in being nasty but i will leave a comment like satisfactory transaction, or transaction completed. Sometimes I just don't bother to leave feedback if I feel they really don't deserve it.

Good luck

just an update

Well guess who finally emailed me today? My 2 MIA's! One guy had been out of town for a week --but don't you think if he'd been bidding on other stuff, he'd have responded to my messages???
The poor other girl was a victim of fraud!!! Some jerk stole her id and was buying and selling while she was away for a couple weeks. Being unmarried and no kids, she had no use for the glow worm I was selling either. I've contacted ebay for how to undo the mess on my end, get my fees back, relist or whatever.
My Ebay ID is with2bs

I have sold things on EBAY before but found it to be extremely time consuming. However, I have also always worked full time.

2nd chance offer

Hi Caron,
I looooove 2nd chances! A great way to get extra money. I never used it until I went to one of those seminars that travel around the country. Now, every chance I get-

Basically a good time to use it is when you have a couple or several of one item. You list it, get lots of bids, sell to the highest bidder. Thats where the fun begins. If you have extras offer the 2nd chance to the next lowest bidder etc. I think you can go up to 5 people.

This is good because you don't pay a listing fee a 2nd, 3rd time etc, only the FVF. Oh and you don't have to rewrite the listing either. Can also choose 1-3-5-7 days for the buyers to respond.

I pretty much financed our Christmas this way last year. got doll closets at a super cheap price, selling them for a HUGE profit and would just offer it down to the others.

I won something just the other day also. Was so disappointed that I was outbid, then thrilled when I was offered a 2nd chance offer. Snapped it up immediately!!!

Hope this answers your question.
