I am hoping someone can provide some information on this small tray.  It measures about 5 5/8" by 4 5/8".  It looks like Pickard with the floral pattern and basket off flowers in the center and gold overlay, but is marked what looks like "sace" Germany along with what may be a signature.  I can only make out the last letters "oines".  I find some listings where the "sace" is translated as saxe, and the lettering is very similar but all of these are printed on and not engraved. Any help will be appreciated.

The wood  looks like a different color depending which angle you look at it, not sure what kind of wood this is made out of or the artist that made it.

STERLING BRACELET

I usually have a great insticnct or gut feeling about a time period for pieces but this one has me completely stumped. What do you think? Vicotorian, 40's, 70's?

It has a large clasp. I think it is the chain AND large clasp that is throwing me.

Thinking cool thoughts during these hot days....

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

This question may make me sound like a complete dunce...but I'm a semi-lovable dunce... providing you pick up your dirty clothes and rinse off your dishes...hopefully, it's worth a little "stupid question" mileage...

 

Every time I've ordered from a particular seller, they offer cheaper prices if I buy outside of eBay. Honestly, it took a couple of times to get it. I thought no one would be dumb enough to put it in writing directly below the prominent yellow warning on every header.

 

I just don't respond. I know better than to take that risk {I'm just a plain old dunce..not really old...more semi-approaching the beginning of the tail end of middle aged...kinda...old enough to engage in utter nonsense when I'm seriously sleep deprived...and not nearly old enough to get a pass for it...but not a gullible dunce...most of the time...sorta...}.

 

I've only been making purchases for a few months. If I don't report a seller willing to violate eBay's policies, is there an impact on the seller community I'm not grasping?

 

The seller chose to be responsible for the consequences. Most of us resort to doing stupid things when we're desperate {or sleep deprived}. I don't know if that's the motivation, I'm just hesitant to rat someone out if they might depend on sales for their total income. On the other hand, I feel like the importance of reporting is escaping me. It would be just as wrong not to give the consequences to other sellers equal consideration.

Thanks in advance for your answer!  happyfcgonecrazy.gif

Carved Bone Box. Your thoughts?

Any pickers out there have an idea what this is , It is brass, painted black a little over 17 inches long,two round balls at the end could have been used to balance,     the two holes in the center of it have an inside dia of about 1 inch and has on the no 14 on it,  Open for any suggestions before it gets cleaned and sent to the scrap pile,

Cheating seller

I'm a new seller on eBay and this is the first time someone returns item 
BUY bought 2 headphones but one works well and the other does not work well
  The buyer did not know how to do replace for it did not work return via the Internet
Found return because it does not match the description
He explained problem that the handset does not work very well and asked RESOLUTION
  I told him I do not know, but can it returns the item, and I refer you money
I worked and return the item

 

The buyer then sent me a message :

 

( Hi topv, it's me again. I wish you could reply in the other message section, but I have all the original stuff, the extra ear cushions and bag as well and will send it out really soon Smiley Tongue. Id love another one though since the white ones work so well Smiley Happy. If you want me to order another or if you can just send another when you receive this pair... Just let me know what would be more convenient! thanks!! )

 

me  :

 

Thank you for the Second Letter of Inquiry I understand that you want to replace the black one another.
I will send other immediately when received.
But first you must close the open case and you do not want the money and
I spoke with the seller replacement
Thank you

 

The buyer :

 

Hi topv, sent out the headphones earlier today. Should I just go ahead and cancel the return on my profile now? Sorry for all the questions i just want to make sure i do everything right Smiley Happy never had to do a return before.

 

me  :

Thank you for your message.
Always we want to be satisfied that you sent the speaker that does not work Do you want to replace them in the same color or want to change it blue or black or white Kindly send me your request and thank you for your purchase from eBay

 

The buyer :

Hi topv Smiley Tongue thanks for a choice! ;p i think I ll try a blue one this time i guess. Thanks a ton man!!

 

The buyer Send the handset that do not work and sent a message :

 

Black handset, which does not work very well and arrived me today and I will send you another one blue color also requested on Monday morning, and I hope that you accept my apologies again
thank you 

And I sent a message to Ebay and I told them all that

 

But I found that after this message from eBay 

 

eBay Customer Support has reviewed the case and made a final decision.

 

We issued a full refund of $23.50 on Jul 19, 2015 to the buyer. As described in the eBay Money Back Guarantee, the refund includes the purchase price, plus original shipping.

But the buyer a refund back to me and told me :
 
Hi topv!! Sorry they sent me a refund... I must have done something wrong. I just sent the 23.50 back to you! Smiley Tongue thanks again man and sorry!

I have successfully worked with the "Best Offer" option for other items, but for an item I currently have listed I have 2 offers but no links available to respond to either offer. I would like to accept one of them before it expires. Any suggestions? I was surprised the only option for support is via phone !

 

UPDATES:

As noted, I know HOW to include "Best Offer" options - I have done so with other listings and successfully replied even earlier today.

This item DOES have "Best Offer" option enabled.

It simply does not offer the usual links to "Decline" "Accept" or "Suggest Counteroffer" even though I have 2 active offers.ebay can't respond to offer.PNG

Selling question

I sold 2 fairly expensive aquarium filters to one buyer. Together they were $250. One was new and the other was  used for about 4 months. I set the used one up on my aquarium to show it working. At first the buyer said he needed them by the weekend because it was an emergency. I got them to him in 2 days so he had them in time. I didn't hear a thing until this past Saturday ( he had them 7 days by then) and he stated the new one leaked and he hadn't even looked at the other one yet. He also said " I see you don't take returns so I will be leaving you negative feedback".The leaking issue is common and easily remedied so I replied and told him what to do and reassured him the other filter was functioning great and that it had been running until an hour before I shipped it to him. The next thing I hear is today and he says he called the manufacturer of the leaking filter and they are sending him new parts. This is impossible since they don't have customer service hours on the weekend.Then he goes on to say that the other filter has an issue with part of it and it is useless to him so he is throwing it away. He also griped that there was some water left in it. At most there would be drops in it. I dried it out but a tiny bit of water could have been in the motor.I pointed out to him that the feature he says does not work is shown in  a picture working fine but since he is so unhappy to return both filters for a refund. He replies and says that he doesnt know if the filter works or not but that it looks like it won't work. He also does not want a refund. He said " I am not the type of person who complains just to get a refund but I will be letting my feedback show the type of product you sell".  As I said these filters were not cheap so if there was really an issue, wouldn't he want the refund?  I think he is fishing for a partial refund so he can keep the filters . What do I do with this guy?

Never seen it this slow,  not ever!  I had a potential customer message me through a listing asking , Did This Sell?  Did what sell????  I could not see the listing or item number picture NOTHING!!!!  I think its time to throw in the towel.  Something just does not seem right. not here, not anymore.

this is the worst i have ever seen it!

I just had a customer contact me about one of my items. He said that in his search results, the price shown that it was $19.99, but when he opened the listing to view it, it showed it was $49.99..but actually it was neither..its $29.99  anyone else ever have this complaint?

This was the item in question.. and it does concern me, and could possibly be a reason behind the lack of sales over the past few months

I bought a record and paid. The seller had other records I wanted. I had the courtesy to ask before bidding if I could pay August 1. He cancelled my PAID order, refunded then blocked me from bidding.

 

The reason he chose for cancelling was, "item no longer available."

 

I spent a lot of time on the phone complaining to eBay, but all they said was to watch and see if he relists same item. He did relist 

same item. Again and again I was on the phone with eBay, with reps telling me, "Yep, that's the same item; we will suspend him." Yet, nothing was done. Nothing.

Buyer can't pay me

Hi folks and cheers from Sweden,

 

I have encountered a problem with a seller and I'm unsure about have the situation should be handled.

 

A seller informed me that an item I bought was returned to the seller by local customs. The seller refunded me and wanted me to buy the item again in a new transaction. I think he/she wants to kind of restart the whole transaction or something.

 

The problem is that an item that is just refunded is put on the list of Unpaid items on the buyers account. I keep telling the seller that this is what happening on my side but the seller has now refunded me a second time.

 

Has any of you guys encountered this type of problem?

 

I know that it's possible for a seller to send a request to cancel an order the proper way but it should be done before the item has been shipped. I don't think the seller can make that approach now.

 

What would you do?

A seller keeps refunding me

Hello,

 

I'm just a newbie here in eBay, I just recently purchased an item to a seller from China with free shiiping cost. My question, is it normal for the seller that they will not nofity me if they already shipped the item that I bought? It has been 4 days from now since i paid the item that I bought but still I didn't receive any notification from eBay that the seller has already shipped the item to me.

 

Thanks in advance for your answers! Smiley Happy

Hi,

 

I have an HTML code with links to other parts of the HTML page. When I test them on Notepad++ the links work fine. When I add them via spreadsheet to our eBay items they stop working. I thought that perhaps the links somehow get deleted by eBay when I upload the HTMLs, but when I copied the HTML from an item to Notepadd++ then the links work perfectly once again. 

 

Has anyone experienced this issue or have any suggestions to why it is happening/ how to solve it?

 

Thank you in advance for any tips.

HTML Links not Working on HTML Description

 

 

While on the phone with eBay CS the other night I searched my listings on Google using my title keywords and no matter how many keywords I added to my searches, I could not pull up my listing or it's photos. We both did separate searches to cover more ground with no success.

 

Finally I cut and pasted my titles in the search box and my listings and photos appeared, yet when I clicked on either one it didn't take me to my listing. Instead it took me to a different format eBay search page where there was loads of items that only had one or two of my keywords in common. On some of these pages my items were so buried, I couldn't find them. Plus what is the odds that someone will search my exact title?

 

The CS rep tried searching some other seller titles and still got the same results. This has to be another component of the no sales on eBay, because when I clicked on titles and photos on Google for my other venues, I went directly to the listing pages, and so did he. He reported the problem, However I don't know if this is strictly an eBay issue or a combination of Google messing with eBay within Googles search algorithm.

 

I also don't know how many, if not all, sellers on eBay this problem is affecting.

Does anybody know how many drafts you can make and keep on eBay for 30 days? I have a customer who wants me to list 350 all at one time instead of putting them up as i go. It's alot of work and I'm afraid i will get partially thru and many will vanish. That would confuse me because I would be sure what was still there and not....and it would be aggravating.  I've googled the question, but it keeps coming up with 7 drafts and 30 days. I've already done more than 7 and I don't want to lose them...worried

considering opening an Ebay store

I feel like as a seller I should be in complete control of invoicing my customers without creating rules and such. Keeping it simple. I feel like eBay has removed a lot of that from me. I like to see what my customers are purchasing before they pay so I can ship it as low cost as I can. If someone does not pay you for an order BLOCK THEM and move on don't force everyone to use the cart. Anyone else out there feel like that?

Twice now I've had an item where both of the buyers wanted it shipped internationally even though I'm very confident that I didn't have ship internationally enabled on my listing. Anyway, I need to cancel both "Sales" even though I never got paid for them as I communicated with the buyers what shipping would be and they backed out. However ebay thinks i've still sold this item and i want to fix that. I did go through the troubleshooting on the support site here but it told me that it looks like my listing was done on another site like ebay Australia....ah what??!!

I recently bought an item in july

little did i know i put down my old address on it and now I can't go get my items

 

I've talked to my apartment complex said the package is in my name and i should be able to get it 

of course they laughed at me when i said it and was unwilling to work with me

 

When i talked to the seller he said it was shipped and delivered but it was delivered to the wrong address which is what i keep saying to him

 

I don't know what to do so i've requested a refund because i didn't technically receive my item? 

 

If there's another solution to this I'm all ears and yes i know it was my mistake not the seller's but it should have been a simple fix

Howdy,

 

I won an item (111723412506) with the only bid and no reserve in place. After the auction ended, the seller contacted me and said he 'just' damaged the item on a flight and blamed the airline carrier. Given that the item was barely used (over the last few years) and that the seller replied to a question the day before the bidding ending, I am calling bull on the excuse. I am trying to leave feedback, or contact ebay to ask for photo evidence, but cannot do either. It seems there is nothing that I can do. Any suggestions? The seller has 100% reputation over 26 items.

 

Thanks in advance

According to the times along side the bids the winning bid was placed 5 hours before

mine.There was 4 or 5 bids whitin a hour before mine in the 14000 range with each

uping the last by $100 by other then the winning bidder.I know the highest bid wins so

if this was a automatic proxy bid placed earlier why wouldn't it have been in with these other

Lost Auction

Hello, auction was for a $4500 motorcycle. $500 requested down payment 48 hrs. It took the buyer two weeks to make the deposit and 30 days to finish paying after much complaining by me ( seller )

I am now paid ( he paid the full amount with Paypal so now I have fees of $146 )

  Buyer now informs me he is out of the country and has no idea when he will pick up motorcycle. It has been in my garage for 30 days while I am waiting for him to pay and now I have to store it while he decides when he will pick it up.

   My question is  whether it is fair for me to insist on him paying me the going rate for storage fees after a certain amount of time?

Suspended account

Hi everyone,

 

A bit of a confusing situation here and I appreciate the help.

 

I sold a tshirt on eBay and the buyer would like to return. He was under the assumption that the item had a different print than what he had thought.

 

My item was new in factory packaging, so understandably I did not want to open it. I could not find a photo online of the pattern of the opened product, so I used stock photo of a plain white t-shirt of the same design and technology as my title photo. The t-shirt I had available was of a blue and white camo pattern and my 2nd and 3rd photos clearly show the item in a clear bag with this print.

 

The second line in the auction description states:

"Please note that product in primary picture does not show cloud design on this product. It is a cloud pattern with a white Columbia Sportswear hash logo in the center. I could not find a photo of the product and did not want to open it."

 

The seller opened the see through packaging, diminishing the products resale value. Although my auction stated no returns, I would've accepted a return if the buyer would have reached out kindly.

 

Is the buyer to blame for purchasing an incorrect product? Or am I responsible?

 

Thank you!

My customer asked to cancel an order.  Payment was not made, but ebay is waiting for her to confirm refund.  What do I do now?

Payments question

Jul 28, 2015 7:48:57 AM PT

My customer asked to cancel an order.

About 2 months ago I sold a phone. The buyer paid with PayPal but used a check. PayPal told me to wait 3 days for the check to clear. I did. Meanwhile the buyer sent me an email wanting to know where their phone was. I told him I was waiting on the payment method to clear. They said they were wanting the phone before the week was up. Then the next day PayPal told me it's ok mail the phone. That Friday or Saturday the post office said it was delivered to the buyer. Three or four days later I get another email saying they did not get the phone wanting a refund. I told them no as the phone was $600 retail and they had paid me $286. And I was still going to have to wait before I could even get paid for it. eBay told me to have them check around with their neighbors as the post office said that I had to wait 30 days to file insurance.  I have received several nearly threatening emails from this buyer.  I am very sure that they got that phone and are trying to scam me. They are not getting their money back out of me unless the phone comes back to me as I mailed it to their verified mailbox. But what can I do about them emailing me?is there someway to block them?

Selling question

I sold an item. The invoice was automatically sent out to the buyer. I did not hear from the buyer within the first 24 hours, so I sent an email. No response to the email. So I just called him this morning. He told me that he bought the item for his son. I explained to him that regardless of who he bought it for, it needed to be paid for. He said Just Put it back on ebay! Seriously! So.... what are my next steps? I obviously don't want anyone else to go through this with this buyer.  If I cancel the sale, can I still do a Second Chance Offer? I've never had this happen before, so don't know how it works.  And I think it is horrible, that I cannot leave him negative feedback!
