I've gotten another message today. 'the msg now is "the seller can't
ship your order with any of the shipping methods
available." sounds like maybe you haven't specified something for heavier
orders,

Where do I go to fix that?

Do I need to go somewhere else besides this forum to get an answer?
Bricklink is sending this error message to potential buyers. What triggers this
error message? I dont know. I need someone who works for Bricklink to help me
with this. I also need help at letting Bricklink know that I need help with this
problem.

that will solve my problem. Thank you.

Without those bits of information, the instant checkout doesn't seem to
be able to tell whether they will fit in a given package or not. You might need
to add those numbers for items in your inventory.

Hope that helps!

I cant give them the correct answer. I thought that they did not have their address
in Bricklink when they created a login, but that was not it. It is also clear
that i have set up that i use USPS.com.
I dont know what their problem is because i have had many other orders entered
correctly in the past few weeks with no problem.

Please let me know how to resolve this. thank you.

I have had many orders since is posted this, but some people are still having
problems. I responded to some the the questions by asking of they had their address
in Brickling when they became a member. That way if they did not , Bricklink
could not tell if i could ship to them because I only ship to the U.S.
I did get this message recently "We are trying to place an order with you and
Bricklink is saying you are unable to ship to our address." But they told me
that their address is in Bricklink. Thank you.

I closed my store with no problems, everything was working fine. I re opened
the store and now I have buyers who have sent me problem messages. They say
when they are ready to complete their order they get a ""NO_SHIPPING_METHOD"".
You will be redirected to the cart page." Where do I need to go to fix this.
Obviously something in my settings had changed while my store was closed. Thank
you for your help.

I have been off bricklink for a few months adding inventory. I am getting orders
now and some of the buyers say that are" trying to buy a lot, but it says that
the items will not fit in your package. Can I get a bypass code?"

Why is this happening and what do i need to do to correct this?

Before, buyers could just keep adding without a bypass code.

Thank you.

Part No: 4740  Name: Dish 2 x 2 Inverted (Radar)

4740 Dish 2 x 2 Inverted (Radar)
Parts: Dish
comes in:
- Trans Light Blue

- Trans Dark Blue
and you seem to have these three.

That'd be my guess too. Trans-Medium Blue will fluoresce under UV light
(it looks pretty cool), so you could verify it that way.

thank you , problem solved.

Additional 5% off the total on orders over $50!!

I can buy minifigs cheaper elsewhere, even with your 25% off. This is no bargain.

  Hi there!

It really depends. Some sellers tend to leave feedback right after they ship.
Others wait until the buyer has left feedback and then return the favor.

Hope this helps,
Michael

  Hi, silly question perhaps, but who generally leaves feedback first, buyer or
seller? Does it matter?


Thank you

As a Seller, I send praise feedback as soon as a buyer pays. After all,
that is really the only thing a buyer can be praised for. I appreciate their
feedback after they receive the product, but if they don't give feedback
I don't beg for it. I would like to see constructive positive feedback because
I'm always trying to improve. If the buyer does not pay, it is negative feedback.
If an order is canceled I don't give any feedback.
AS a Buyer, I like to give praise feedback after I receive the product.
If I don't get my order it is negative feedback. If I get an order where
the product is not what I expected and I'm a little disappointed, I give
praise feedback because I did get my order, I just explain why I was disappointed.

I could not find this in the catalog. I guess I did not use the right words for
the search. Flame and flames do not work. Please help me identify. Thank you.

like to know what sets, parts (type,catagory, item #), minifigs, books, gear,

It would help me as a seller, to see the trends of what people are buying and
to adjust my inventory for the short term. To raise or lower prices of certain
items or to put on sale certain items. Also to buy certain items in the short
term to flip them quickly.

This information could help generate sales.

Statistics/analytics on this site are very poor, but a personal store can give
fantastic numbers. Good luck finding anyone willing to give up that information
though.

~JU

Thank you. But I'm really looking for the activity generated by Bricklink.
I know at the end of the day Bricklink has a list of every item sold on this
site and where it went. There are a lot of trading platforms out there that
will list every transaction they had for the day. I've been all over the
site and I can't seem to generate the list i'm looking for. I don't
care who sold or bought, just what was sold and bought.

wow, that hit me hard. With prompting, she went on to say that if you used Amazon
when it first came out, it looked like BL. This is my livelihood and I am concerned.
Thoughts?

Amazon is a billion dollar company. It is silly to compare this site to Amazon.
Good luck trying to make a living by using Bricklink. Some people say they do,
but they must be living with someone who also is making a living somewhere else.

  Hi all, I just wanted to get peoples opinions:

A while back I had a very high feedback buyer make an order which included some
balloon tires. These tires were over 2.5cm thick which means I cannot ship them
at large letter rate, which unfortunately means they cost a minimum of £3.30
to ship, where as letter rate goes from 96p.

I can accept that maybe you don't know how wide the tires are and that £3.30
shipping on a £9 domestic order is higher than average, but the buyer responded
with:

"Sorry but the shipping cost and extra charges are just to high,I always buy
the tyres and they will fit in large letter."

They do not fit in large letter, and shipping an oversized package is always
at my risk and not the buyers so I am not going to do it.

At this point the buyer stopped responding to me and I had no further correspondence
from them during the whole NPB process.

I wasn't happy to leave a 0% negative member their first negative but I thought
that trying to fudge the mail and then ignoring me was worthy of one.

Today I look down my orders list to see they have somehow managed to get my feedback
removed. This doesn't fit with any of the criteria on the removal list here:

http://www.bricklink.com/help.asp?helpID=14

The NPB was completed. Why was my feedback removed?

Am I being unreasonable here?

You would have ask Admin_Jaclyn to give you that answer. The Buyer would have
had to have requested an Admin to remove it. Or you could have removed your
own feedback by mistake.
