  You don't. I konw few people buying from me using different addresses (at
least in the same country). In that cases the shipment has to be always fully
insured as a possible chargback from PayPal against you could be easily forced
in case of any problems.

So you can order/buy something on Bricklink that you have for sale elsewhere
and after being sold you can forward it to your client? At risk for the Bricklink
seller because the address on Bricklink isn’t the same as on your Paypalaccount
you pay with?
It seems like an excellent idea…

Or am I seeing it wrong?

That's why I don't accept paypal anymore!

as a middle ground between Sets and Parts.

Basically this Sub-Set category would help part out and sell sections of a Set
that contains multiple smaller builds like cars/ships/etc. The main reason I
thought of this, was because I was trying to build the tank from 7258 Wookiee
Attack, but was struggling with parting it out. This would work similarly to
brick-built animals, but not sorted under the Parts category to reduce clutter.

Benifits would be:

-Easily parting out sections of a set
-Easily sell sections of a set with accurate historical price data
-De-clutter listings for "incomplete" sets where only a small build from a set
is sold

Cons:
-Massive amount of data to process and verify
-Potential database clutter

Solutions:
-If this is something the community would actually like and use, Make a site
announcement to croud source information in relation to the smaller builds, and
in no time, the community will fill a majority of the gap. Of course at first,
we would start with more popular sets/builds and add more as needed.

I agree.

I have asked for an order delivery status "Lost in the mail" (or something similar)
before, to be able to start spotting patterns for buyers that seem to have orders
lost in the mail on a regular basis.

I usually refund without asking much questions when it never arrived, but I do
wonder from time to time if I'm not being fooled. Foolish me.

Yes, you have to always give benefit of the doubt and so I have no problem refunding
either but reasons for canceling/refunding should ideally be logged with a better
selection of options that match what actually occurred

then you also need to give us more suitable options

I believe it is to recalculate the BL fee, they will not refund any fee if it
is shipping related, e.g. "Overcharged shipping" but they will if it is "Buyer
and seller agree to cancel order/items"

  BrickLink Admin,

Could you add a feature that a My Cost for the Set would be added to the Part
Out Step 1 page. Would like the ability to add the cost for the set(s) and the
it divides evenly between the parts. I like to keep track of this for personal
and tax reasons. It is quite tedious to add to each item. Below is just an example
of how the system would calculate cost per piece. There might be an easier or
better method, this is just me being simple minded. All number are fictitious.

Cost of set: $90
Total Pieces: 500
Cost per piece: $0.18

FYI you can do this very easily with BrickStore, along with much better pricing
tools.

  I need to refund one of my customers due to an item not arriving which is presumed
lost in post but when I go to refund there is no relevant option for this?

I’m forced to choose one of the following unrelated reasons for refunding:-

Buyer and seller agree to cancel order/items
Seller cannot complete transaction
Item was missing or unsatisfactory
Overcharged shipping
Buyer paid incorrect amount

Ideally there should be an option ‘Item presumed lost in post’ and if Bricklink
isn’t already maybe consider keeping this data on users to help look for patterns
when deciding outcomes for other issues. For instance if a buyer is regularly
receiving refunds for items they claim haven’t arrived then I think Bricklink
needs to be aware of this. Likewise if a seller is regularly having to issue
refunds it may be an indication that they are not very reliable for one reason
or another...

I think the option 'Item was missing' covers this case well enough. Whether
it went missing by magic, by mailman, by broken package or by amnesia is irrelevant
at this point in the process.
This data is not used to rate the seller or buyer, at least not that I know of.

But there lies my point because if this info is not relevant or important then
why is Bricklink even asking the reason for the refund? Why not just let us refund
without question? However if it’s for harvesting info on a user then great but
then you also need to give us more suitable options

‘Item was missing’ to me indicates a picking error on the sellers part whereas
a lost package is a very different issue besides if I’m suggesting that Bricklink
moves towards using this info/data for other considerations then I want to be
clear to Bricklink as to the reasons why I’m issuing the refund because in this
instance I’m not issuing a refund because I made a picking error and I’m certainly
not issuing a refund because the buyer considered my goods unsatisfactory??

What Lego color for such a special brick designation, can you envision?

I know the question wasn't pointed at me, but Metallic Gold first came to
mind, but might look too much like the low-class yellow. Perhaps Metallic Silver.
Some special color.

Or the "Chrome" colors? Chrome Black is extremely special and beautiful imho.
But perhaps too serious. How about one of the other Chrome colors?
