On 3/15/11, announced a number of changes that will once again increaseSeller’s costsfor doingbusiness on . For starters, is eliminating their 5% performance based Seller Discount.Additionally, they are going to start chargingSellers a fee forShipping & Handling. PayPal, an owned company, already charges a feeon Shipping & Handling and now wishes to "double-dip" by doing the same.
’s message to Sellers stated these changes are being put into effect to encourage Sellers to lower their S/H costs????? This makes absolutely no sense! Just how does imposing a new fee for S/H enable Sellers to reduce their S/H costs??????????
Please note that I presently losemoney on 100% of my Fedex and UPS shipments. The latest announcement will only make matters worse.
FACT: Prior to ’s latest price increase announcement, my SELLER’S FEES HAVE INCREASED BY OVER 45% IN LESS THAN 4 YEARS!
While Fedex, UPS and USPS rates have continued to increase over the last several years, I held the line and kept my S/H fees the same.While Seller fees have continued to skyrocket over the last several years, I held the line and kept my pricesthe same.However, this latest action leaves me no choiceas I'mnow forced to increasemy S/H fees for the first time in over 5+ years in orderto partially offset the latest increases imposed by . The price increases and elimination of the key Seller discount will increase my Final Value Fees on average of almost 7%. To my loyal and faithful customers, I apologize for this necessary action and any inconvenience it may cause you.
TIP: Many of the higher-end premium gloves produced by Rawlings, Wilson, Mizuno, etc. have inner pockets that are pre-oiled at the factory. There is a tendency for the oil to bleed through (particularly on the lighter tan and brown colored gloves) and it is not uncommon to see what appears to be an oil stain of varying degree in thepalm areaof these gloves. I have received gloves in the past that arrived without any evidence of oil and within months, the oil bleeds through into the palm. Personally, I would not let this condition deter one from buying a glove. Many of the gloves ordered off of "stock"pictures on the internet will end up having this condition.
TIP:Many of the premium gloves including Rawlings Pro Preferred &Heart of the Hide, Wilson'sA2000 & A3000, Mizuno's Classic Pro and Pro Limited, etc. are somewhat stiff when brand new. Aquality glove conditioner will do much to reduce the break-in period for any stiffnewglove . Almost allglove conditioners will generally darken the leather andappearance of lighter colored gloves. If you buy a new glove and don't like the look of the pre-oiled palm area, condition the glove with a premium product such as Wilson's Pro Stock Glove Conditioner and the pocket/palm areawill darken and blend in more with the rest of the glove.
TIP: Regardless of whether you preferthe naturalmethod of breaking in a glove, sooner or later you will have to recondition your glove! Personally, I recommend cleaning and conditioning a glove each and every year after a good season of use. All leather gloves willstart todry outand laces will become brittle when subjected to regular use.Prolonged exposure to sand and dirt, wind, rain, hot sun, etc. will take its toll on even the very best glove.PLEASEstay away from those cheapoils, foams or other liquidproducts out there on the market. The foams don't work and liquids such as oils are absorbed deep into the glove, add a tremendous amount of weight, and are nothing more than a magnet for attractingdirt anddebris. Also,PLEASE don't everbake your baseball glove in the oven or microwave orsoak it in the tub to aid in the break-inprocess. You will invariably destroya very fine piece of leather and take years offa gloves life!
Personally, I neveruse anything but a paste typeglove conditioner. Although Iprefer Wilson Pro Stock Glove Conditioner, there are comparable products on the market from manufacturers such as Easton, Nokona, etc.Regardless of whatbrand of paste type conditioner you choose touse, do yourself a favor and make sure it containslanolin and vitamin E. Nothing is betterat restoring and revitalizing the leather on your glove! With a little care,yourgloveshould last for many years andmost likely outliveyour baseball career.
