Trying to add my active listings to my catogories. Every time I do, they go to "Other" and not what I chose.
What am I doing wrong?
How do I add a store theme to my store? I have been researching it online and this is what it says: "
I can't find the "Display Setting". Help?
This is all I can see:
I recently picked this up at an auction...because I thought it was cute and that it looked rather old/vintage. Can anyone identify the maker and approx. year of it's manufacture? There are no markings on the bottom. It is 8" tall x 6 3/4" long (side view). Thanks so much in advance.
Normally I can see them pretty definatively but tonight I can't decide if they are figure 8's or not. Something just looks "off" to me. I dunno, maybe it is just the angle of them!
Found a jar of junk jewelry at TS. Anyone see anything interesting? Know what the DBH/BDH/BHD stands for? The ring is adjustable faux leather with enamel butterfly marked "N". Earring at bottom have lion charm. Think there's a complete picture later!
Shell earrings with gold gilt. Acrylic stones? Fossil watch.
Glass Micro mosiac. This stumps me--See sold from 3.00 to 4000. This is a keychain. M/N Italia on pendant
Patent Made in Italy on keychain ring. Haven't fount that mark anywhere. Much shinier than picture.
I was revising an item on eBay (something I RARELY do... and I clicked this option at the bottom just to see what it did:
Now understand I do NOT have IPR clicked anywhere on my listing or in my third party listed... I don't want it, I can't stand it... in fact I hate the farding thing...
BUT... When I clicked that option this is what I found under the payment tab... WTH!!!!
So I went and checked a few others.... they are ALLLLLLL checked... and they aren't showing in the payment section as being checked...
Am I going to have to go through every single listing every time I list something to UNcheck this stupid thing?!?!?
Show us what you found this week.
This is my best bling this week ..... my first great-grandson! Athens was 7 pounds 12 oz and 21 1/2 inches long with lots of hair.
It`s 2". Unique design the way the clusters of 5 marquis wire over to the front from the back (clear as mud..right?)
Any ideas on origin? I`m getting a West Germany or Austria vibe, but alas, no marking.
Not quite sure how to descripe the larger pear shaped..all I can think of is a soft, muted Sabrina? That correct?
I have just posted another post qith more serious question, but this just want to check people's opinion:
Seller said the the height of the sofa with feet is 27''.
I measured the height with feet 28.75".
Ebay closed the case saying seller's description is accurate.
Do I not get something here? I just honestly don't understand the situation and started to think I am missing something obvious....
I picked up a beautiful Victorian photo album yesterday, full of wonderful images and I wanted to share this lovely woman's photograph.
Is she wearing some lovely jewels or what ? I love looking at old photographs, but it's especially nice when they have on their bling.
Hope I can get some help with a few EAPG id's I was active here for a short while about a year ago but had to stop. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I've done a lot of searching and found id's for quite a few pieces but these I can't seem to place. Thanks for looking.sstop
I bought the sofa from the seller. When I was buying it, the dimensions of the sofa were the most important factor for me in choosing which sofa to buy because I have a very narrow door and staircase. So I specifically asked for the "exact" dimensions of the sofa, not just the approximate ones. Seller then added the dimensions of the sofa to the description. I checked the added dimensions against my door and the staircase and they were OK. I then paid by Paypal and arranged a delivery company. The the sofa arrived it appreared that the dimensions were wrong, especially the most important dimension for me - the height (i.e. the smallest dimension) of the sofa.
I immidiately messaged the seller but he rufused to accept the return. I then opened the case. After a number of communication with eBay and seller EBay closed the case in the seller's favour with the following comment to me in the email I received: “We've determined that the seller has described the item accurately.”
Seller said the the height of the sofa is 27'' including the feet. On the pictures it can be clearly seen that the height with feet is 28.75" (73 cm) height (including feet which are 3" (7.6 cm)).
The difference may look little but when we are talking brick wall 1.75'' is quite a lot and there is no real way to get a sofa through a space if that space is smaller than the sofa even by 1 inch.
I wanted to appeal but whe I pressed the "I want to appeal" button on the page, the page immidiately turned to "Your appeal was made and we will come back to your" message, I wasn't given any opportunity to explain anything or upload the photos. In 10 minutes the paga again chencged and now is saying "Your appeal was unsuccessful". I haven't received any email confrming that I made the appeal and it was unsuccessful, not any explanation why it was unsuccessful. I have then sent an email to Ebay Customer Support asking this question, explaining my situationa nd attaching the photos, but did not get any response.
What can I do now? I spent £460 for the sofa and £56 for the delivery company, and now I don't have money for another sofa and this sofa is blocking my hallway downstairs because it cannot fit through anywhere else because of its height.
I am wondering if I have categorized this correctly..There is a stamp on the bottom that I am hoping can be identified..Any help appreciated
I hope someone can help date these Gianni Versace leather pants. I have had them since2007 and thought they might be from the Bondage series?
I have lost the frontal view -the mos timportant view I know
ugly pic I know
Thank you for any help!
The answer is no.
When you see the bidder "o****a" in these live auctions (who has placed 590,352 bids in the last 30 days) that is NOT a person on eBay.
An eBay "live" auction allows eBay buyers to bid via the Internet while a live auction is taking place.
There are people in a room with an auctioneer and everytime one of those floor bidders raise their numbered paddle, the eBay system has to be updated with the latest bid.
To do this, they use a proxy bidder with the eBay ID of o****a. So this is not a single person placing 19,678 bids a day but represents all of floor bidders in the room where the auction is taking place.

Hello: Anyone familiar with perfume bottles? This has an art glass base in pink and white. The metal atomizer parts look like they were made by Devilbiss. True? My concern is that this looks very new. It is in perfect condition and the glass style looks new to me. Remember, though, I am NO glass expert. Can anyone help me with this?
It's 8" tall.
Thanks so much!

I read the Silpada pieces have an arrowhead mark which this one does (Joseph's head)
There is also a copyright symbol and .925. Above that, there is what looks like the number 69.
Does that number mean anything?
Are all the nativity brooches retired?
Thanks for any help.
Good afternoon everyone.
I'm having a hard time trying to figure out if the flower part of this brooch is enamel or textured?
What do you think?
Thank you for any help.
I would like your assistance on making sure this bag is authentic. Thanks!
Just "mark" in lower case. Imagine the frustration of googling a maker's mark called "mark". I did not see it on the RCJ site.
Whole necklace, in case it reminds anyone of something:
I was so lucky to have found this in a box lot, I can't believe it, now I need help with dating the item. I think the leaves are green gold. I put the stones on the gem tester and it said the middle was ruby/sapphire and the purple ones I could not tell but kinda went between spinel, topaz and sapphire. I know the presidium will not say if synthetic or not but no biggie. The pin/pendant is not marked but tested solidly as 14k with acid and the auracle metal detector. I was thinking because of the trombone closure and the fact that it's not marked might make it an antique but I'm no expert and I was wondering if you guys would chime in, please??? My weekend bling!!! wooo hooo This is why I love doing this The hunt is so much fun Thank you guys in advance
Can this lamp possibly be a Fenton lamp? The base is marked HEDCO, searched using HEDCO Fenton and see there are some but , not in this pattern. Can someone please assist in an ID? Measures approx 16" tall. Thanks very much!
I know it's probably very difficult to get an answer from just a pic but maybe someone recognizes something Anywho, here it goes These appear to be wood, kinda rosewood in color What do you think?
This white one is cold to the touch but not glass What klind of stone could this be?
Is this cloissone? Do you think it's very old? Chinese, Japanes, or?
Thank you for any help you can provide
Hi. Does anyone know what the mark on this bowl says?
I searched Gotheborg and couldn't find it.
It is 3" tall x 9" wide and weighs a little over 2 pounds.
The design has butterflies and flowers.
The flowers have dots on them that you can feel.
Any help is much appreciated.
Hi My second find for this weekend! It tested positivwe with simichrome as bakelite. I tried rubbing it to see if I could smell the formaldehyde and got nothing but then agin my smeller is not that good. What color would you consider this? I tried looking at other examples but there is a wide range of names to choose from. Please help with the color and a possible date range for production. It's approx 1.25" wide 2.5" across the inside aznd pretty thick, my hope is that it's one of the nicer ones...fingers crossed! Thank you in advance for your imput
Any idea what the type of acrylic this might be called? It has a sort of inner glow in sunlight or light. It looks firey! It's bumpy.
Vase is 10.5" tall with no maker's mark that I find. Looks similar to a couple of the Northwood and Fenton listings, but for all I know it could be from the closest FTD shop. Glass is clear at tips and base. Any info will be greatly appreciated!
Hoping to get some info on this childs bowl marked Germany 236 on reverse? Thank you!
Haven't seen any of these in a while - has eBay stopped having these promotions?
Here's an email invite that I received in August 2014:
|List the items every student needs to be successful. Now through August 8, pay no insertion fees* on up to 15,000 fixed price listings. Includes 30-day listings.|
I just need to change the size from L to XL for above item I've requested before?
Please let me know when I will receive the iteam (date)?
The first one, The picture"Venice" is an authentic antique etching by F. Farkas. With tilted towers in corner. Sold 5/13/2011. There is a very small tear on the bottom right near the artist name.
The second one is the famous Castle Garth part of Newcastle-0n-Tyne by C. Manning done before 1889. I found a lot of photos for this scene around this date in flicker basically identical to the painting with different people. None had the painters name of C. Manning. I am totally lost when it comes to these pictures. Any help with any pricing, so I can list them would be greatly appreciated. I am at my moms going through years of collections of a lot of mysteries.
Hopeing someone can help identify the artist of this colorful pottery pitcher with what looks to be a holly leaf. The bottom is incised with letters that appears to be ufyc or ufmc but doesn't make sense to me. Also incised Italy and numbered. Appreciate any help provided.
Hi all and thanks.

Hi! I know there's a name for these mugs made in Italy, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it is. Can anyone please identify this mug for me? Also, can you make out the signature on the bottom. The mug is approx. 5" tall x 3" round at the top. Thanks so much in advance.
I posted this on the Pottery, Glass and Porcelain board also.
any one have any information on this water melon bowl
Good morning, here are a pair of candleholders, Scandinavian modern style, with a mark I do not recognize.
These appear to be put together by hand, but the bottom sections are identical so I assume pieces were poured?
TIA for any help.
Picked this up today for a couple bucks. Fairly sure it is new but can't find one like lt. It is 7 1/4 inches in height and weighs a bit over 1 1/2 pounds. There is an impressed mark on the bottom.
Can anyone translate the mark and tell me which picture is the correct orientation of the mark? Thanks!
Hi everyone, just was curious if anyone recognized the marks on these jars. Or are they just a nice Pier 1 / Pottery barn find? Thanks.
Can anyone tell me what the mark on the back of an old plate I found means?
I appreciate any help.
I am hoping someone can help me identify the origin of this porcelain bull that has floral and other designs on it? There are no marks other than the number 122 stamped on the bottom. It stands about 5.5" tall. Thank you for any help or advice.
I recently picked up this beautifully vase. It is unmarked so I need help with the ID if possible. The vase has metal handled top and bottom glass vase with amazing pink glaze that gives off a rainbow design with moved in the light. I just fell in love it, and hope that someone can help me out. The vase measures 8 inches tall. Thanks for your help in advance,
Hi, Is anyone familiar with this mark? I checked the art-amerindien.com site and did not see it under pictoral marks or under the M section. Any help with the mark or other sites to check is appreciated. For a second I thought the Sterling stamp might be a name, but I think it is just Sterling weirdly overstamped with Sterling.
This has also been posted on the Jewelry & Gemstones Board Group, with no replies so far.
Meant to start chat earlier.
I could not find any markings to lead me in any direction The textured circular thing slides out and reveals a little coiled spring. It looks like it once had a silver finish to it I say pocket thingy but the ring on the top could mean something else. HELP!! Thank you for taking a peak and any assistance you can provide
ALL EBAY STORES are to receive a 1099 tax form!! The 200 listing and $20,000 limit will disappear!! So what do you think?
I predict within 6 months this will be mandated and that's the real push... oh and of course eBay wants more money.. they always do.
Everyone is sharing how angry they are over the 20 Listing/20 Auction deal, but I bet its more insidious than that. Also if you didn't keep all receipts... those "Free Shipping" deals you paid for at eBay's push... well now thats income for you to pay taxes on too.
Its 20 listings a month for me now!!!
I've been selling a lot of books, mostly as sets (by series, by author, by type), and have started to accumulate a lot of singletons that can't be listed this way. Good books, high quality, but individually not worth effort to list given very small profit margin. However, it occurred to me that maybe I could do something like this:
Put together an inventory list of all these singletons -- or maybe an inventory list for the singletons in each genre -- then put up a listing on ebay for each inventory list with something like "Science Fiction Genre - Pick 10 books from list in Description for $10" 10 books together would be worthwhile to list, plus customer would pay a lot less shipping. When a customer bought one set of ten, he indicates the ten he wants as a note to the order. His buy takes the listing down, I ship his 10, adjust inventory list in the listing and then put the listing back out again.
This is such a simple idea I figured others must have thought of it, but I can't really find any listings of this type on ebay. This then makes me wonder if ebay has some type of policy against listings like this.
I have a case, but not how to handle it because Ebay does not give me the tools to do it or do not know how, it turns out, I win a bet, almost inadvertently a LG G3, which was saying that was defective in reading the sim card, but the seller never put photos of the damage, and when they ask, I leave you on hold, and never the shipping, so I have not paid the bet because of poor communication with the seller, and the seller has not completed the shipment, because I have not paid, 2 days after requesting him to cancel the purchase I get tired of waiting for photographs, but with very bad attitude told me I ought to paying it, or else I would block my paypal account, I need to know how to handle this case, since by his bad attitude and poor communication do not want to deal with this seller.
I need help because ebay could cancel my account or paypal account.
and try to discuss with the seller but I can not treat that person.
Wanted some thoughts on this issue. I sold an item (diabetes test strips) to a buyer. Mailed them (3/16). Got paid. Never heard anything. The other day (4/23) I get a message from eBay saying the buyer wants a refund as he never received the item.
I never included the tracking information in my shipment (first and last time I ever do that). I through out the receipt from the USPS as it was over a month.
My solution thus far is having the Post Master try to locate the tracking number.
HERE IS WHAT IS INTERESTING:
I was proactive and called his local Post Office (across the country). The new guy (his store) before I could finish. They have got calls before and claim his system of receiving is a nightmare as he gets a lot of packages weekly. The man at the post office said he is sure he definitely has the item and cant find it in his own store.
With that being said the buyer now keeps asking for a tracking number and a refund.
End of the day if the post office comes back empty can I dig my heels in and say it's been over a month? The refund too is over $1K.
I appreciate all advice.
I am having trouble with an ebay seller. I thought we had resolved the issue, but yesterday I received a very mean message:
I am so confused and mad. I have no idea what happened, and I am not sure who did what wrong here. Maybe you guys can help me?
The long story's short version is this:
I bought two plates and one tea cup from them. After more than a week and two emails, they answer that they don't have the tea cup in stock and ask me to wait a bit more. I bought and paid for an item that they DID THEN NOT HAVE IN STOCK. I email back and say:
I will give you two options:
1. I give you one more week to find a cup (until sunday 19th). If you don’t have it until then, I’ll request my money back. If you do, you’ll send it asap, and I won’t leave any feedback at all, or neutral feedback.
2. You can send me any of these two alternative items instead of the cup:
a) Large creamer
b) the Coffee Cup and saucer + one Serviette ring
They’re worth a little bit more than the tea cup, but you’ll have to see that as another form of apology. Upon receiving the items (and the plates) I will leave positive feedback.
Get back to me about what you want to do.
They then send me the coffee cup, serviette ring and two plates.
The thing is that when handling with fine china, there's something called "factory seconds". This user had previously reassured me that their items are top quality and their auction says "ALL ITEMS ARE IN STUNNING VINTAGE CONDITION, WITH NO CHIPS, CRACKS OR SPLITS, AND EXCELLENT GILDING" and "excellent condition". A factory second is a defect product that were being given away for free or sold cheaply from the factory. They have faults that should have been stated, and does not earn the "excellent condition" definition.
So I email him this and included pictures:
I received the items today, thank you. They were very well packed.
I love the serviette ring and the plates are awesome. However, the coffee cup is a factory second. It was not stated anywhere that it was a factory second, and you didn’t tell me this either. Your auction says there’s no flaws in any of your items. If it was only a little problem with it, I wouldn’t care, but on this factory second there’s obvious problems in the colors of the rose. Did you think I wouldn’t notice? I’ve messaged you about factory firsts and factory seconds before, didn’t you understand that I am very keen on getting factory firsts only? I attach photos with comparison to a factory first tea cup I own. As you can see, the flaws are very visible.
Factory seconds should NEVER be sold at the same price as factory firsts. They were given away for free or sold very cheaply from the factory. If you bought it at normal price, you were scammed. This cup is not worth the £14.99 you put on it, and not the £17.99 I paid for it and the serviette ring. At least the saucer and the ring were factory firsts, but this coffee cup has such obvious flaws it’s just not worth that amount at all. I want a £5 refund, or I will leave neutral feedback and explain that you sell factory seconds at the same price as factory firsts. I will also never buy from you again, and I won’t recommend you to anyone. There’s been so many faults in the service I’ve received from you, I should just leave negative feedback by now. I will give you one last chance of refunding me £5, and I shall still leave positive feedback, but will never buy from you again. I appreciate you trying to make up for your past mistakes to me, but sending me a factory second with obvious flaws is not going to help, sadly.
I am sorry to see it turn out this way.
Thank you regardless.
He then tries to say that it's not a factory second, and I send him a picture of the mark on the underside of the cup that says it is a factory second. After another email, he sends me my £5 and I leave positive feedback for him, as I feel that he deserves it regardless because he did his best to fix the problems that arose. Even if he sold me an item that he didn't have.
And then he sent me that first message. So apparently he's reported me to ebay? He thinks I blackmailed him, although he at any point could have opened an issue with ebay? This case was SOLVED between the two of us, he agreed to EVERYTHING! And now he brings it all up again, even if HE is the one who broke two rules: All sales are final, and the item condition was a lie.
I've researched a lot and looked through the ebay rules, and I am sad to say that I was not completely aware of everything, despite my long history here. I don't sell here, and I rarely buy anything either. I've never had to leave a negative feedback and I've never received one either.
I don't find anything absolutely specific for my situation and what I should have done, but I realise that I should have not forgiven him for not having my item in stock. I should have reported him to ebay from the start for selling a non-existing item, gotten my money back and bought something somewhere else. I swear, SWEAR that I did ONLY try to make things easier on us, I only tried to fix the situation. I wasn't trying to get items that I wasn't supposed to have - I got ONE serviette ring which I frankly don't need. I have tea cups for 6 people, why would I even need a single serviette ring? I asked for it just because I was okay with getting the coffee cup but it wasn't listed for as much as the tea cup. So instead of having him refund me and sending the coffee cup, I just said he could include a serviette ring and we'd be done. I had nothing but good intentions of making everything easier on us both AND letting him avoid getting a NEGATIVE feedback from me for not having my item in stock! And he also avoided getting suspended for violating ebay rules of selling items not in stock!
I should not have done that. I should have reported him immediately. Now it's this huge mess.
I did NOT try to blackmail him. I did not request something that was outside of the original listing or I'd leave negative feedback - this is a violation of ebay policy, I read. It is NOT what I tired to do, but I guess he can try to claim that I did. But he already agreed with me, so why didn't he just report me then? Also, I gave him the choice of me requesting my money back entierly, in the first email from me included here. In the second where I requested a £5 refund, I didn't state that he was free to ask me to request my money back and send back the item. I thought it was implied. I wasn't trying to MAKE him do things by "blackmailing" with feedback. I was trying to TELL him was he could do to earn a positive feedback, even though he repeatedly made offenses! I shouldn't have done that either, I should have left negative feedback at once without giving him a single chance to redeem himself.
So I'm wondering what you guys think? What should I do? Will my account be suspended because I "blackmailed" him? (Which was, yet again, NOT my INTENTION!) Is the whole thing still valid since we didn't go through the resolution center? Are my mistakes even valid since he was the one who sold me an item not in stock first? Should I go to the resolution center and request a full refund and send the items back? Can I still report him as a non-complying seller?
Thankful for all answers.
Some off-site links with more info:
What exactly is the 7 day wait for when you want to leave a neutral feedback with someone who is a powerseller? My feedback wont be aby different now then it will be then. I have my item, it wasnt as described but I was able to get it working so I want to leave a neutral. Just dont understand the exact purpose of the waiting period. Are they hoping we will forget or change our minds later?

Hi. Just received a strange request by a new member (no feedback rating) and message was sent the same day as their ebay membership started.
I bought something that arrived in the mail today. I immediately left the seller a positive feedback. Then I realized that they sent the wrong item. Because I left the seller a positive feedback, have I ended the transaction and removed my ability to file for a return from the seller for not shipping the correct item?
does ebay charge for bid? when i bided it asked for credit card information and blocked some money on the card
. Bought in Antique shop in the 40s, opaque glass, bought in SE Ct, appear to be hand painted with a gold rim, no markings of any kind
I sold an item, invoiced the customer, went back in later it showed paid in eBay (check mark and $ sign were in Blue. Said PRINT LABEL in Blue, so I did and mailed package out same day. When I went back in much later it showed item was not paid that it was mailed and the check mark and the $ were in grey. I called ebay they sent me to Paypal: Paypal said customer attempted to make payment and it did not take. They don't know why eBay marked it as paid. eBay said they have no record of payment being made and that perhaps I hit the Label button by mistake or the Customer may have changed their mind. I should put in an unpaid item assist. Now I am out $190.00. Because customer is ignoring me completly. I have been selling for at least 10 years I know the difference between a Paid item and an Unpaid item. Has anyone had this problem? All I know is PayPal and eBay are saying they are not responsible.
looking for a shiping price to bring a van from usa to dublin ireland? regards ronan
buyer can create, real or imagined, by just opening a case because they don't want to bother (pay themselves) to return an item? Even when seller accepts returns has said they will refund the returned item? Thank you.
Can anyone shed some light on what this is? I've looked up antique plungers but haven't found anything that looks quite like what I have. Any ideas?
Why does counter indicate multiple views immediately upon listing item?
Sometimes the counter shows zero upon listing item. Then other times the
counter shows as many as six views immediately upon listing. I'm talking
about one second after listing. This diminishes my confidence that the
counters are accurate.
Does anyone have an explanation?
So here is the deal:
I purchased an amp that was listed as "Excellent Condition". When I received the amp, first thing I did was remove the non-original hokey badge that was on it. I want to return this amp, because it is not in excellent condiiton, it is not even in workable condition. Problem is, I lost the badge. Am I out of luck, will I still be able to return the amp if eBay steps in?
A little background:
After plugging it in, I noticed a multitiude of issues. I figured I would take it in to the shop to see if it could just be some maintenence stuff. It wasn't. It is going to cost me over half the cost that I paid for it to get it to a normal running condition. The tech told me it was electrically unsafe to use. Upon speaking to the seller, he wanted no part in helping me out. Told me "Luck of the draw", and that it is clearly stated that he doesn't offer returns.
Hey guys. My package was out for delivery on the tracking information, but I revieced this instead of the package. Why do i owe money? I paid $5 for economy shipping to the seller on the transaction. This is something the seller should pay, correct?
I hate that we have to accept Paypal E-checks, there should be a way to select an option of not accepting them. They tie up our inventory too long. I could have opened an UPI case by now and relisted the item!
Just had to vent.
Do I have to refund him the full amount including the initial shipping cost? How about the shippping cost for the return?
Follow up on "exuberant bid buyer".
So after I sent:
1. Five (5) polite reminders/messages to the buyers about winning, paying, invalid shipping address, missing order details.
2. Waiting 2 days and no response from buyer.
3. Filing a UID.
Today (day 3) I finally get a bunch of messages from the silent buyer asking to MC.
What should I do? I did not respond to any of those messages yet nor did I do a MC yet.
Remember that if they do pay (which I doubt), the shipping will be impossible since the shipping address is invalid according to UPS (I'm in the US and buyer is in RU).
There are too many China sellers are using fake locations. They say their locations are Hong Kong or the US but they are not in Hong Kong or in the US. They are actully in China. I've purchased some items from Hong Kong sellers before. But items were shipped from China. Then I search "US Only", but there are sill some China sellers. I am not saying that all China sellers are not honest but many of them are doing such thing called "location abuse". I always try to avoid purchasing things from China sellers because it takes like a month or even longer time to ship an item from China to the United States. And when a problem happens, it's hard to make a resolution. As a buyer, I felt like I had been cheated by sellers location. Why does Ebay allow them to use fake locations?
I am selling a camera and I accidentally made it available internationally. I noticed this mistake 3 days ago, and quickly "revised" the item description to read that it can only ship within the USA. I made the revision very lear with several ****** asteriks.
Still, the current high bidder is from Russia and the auction ends tonight. I just sent him a message a few minutes ago, but I don't know if I should wait to cancel his bid with the auction ending so soon, or just do it right now.
I'm not happy with the spring changes, but I just roll with it, it's their rules and we can either play or not, but I'm REALLY annoyed that I commited to a yearly store subscription, I've had an Anchor store for 2 years but just signed up for the yearly rate in March. I commited on the terms that I get 2500 FP and AUCTION listings a month, now I can't use them for auctions and I don't need 2500 FP listings a month and they'll charge me $600+ to drop my store level. This just seems unfair, as well as illegal to me. How can they change the rules and not give us an out?
I have sold an item for $155. I ship Priority Mail. With Priority Mail, I get $50 free insurance. I want the package to be insured for $155. Do I just buy the Shipcover insurance for the difference of $105, OR do I have to buy the entire $155?
Thanks for any help you can provide
I posted two questions a couple of weeks ago.
How can I find out if anyone answered them?
All I can find here seems to be recent questions and answers.
He opened a case in Paypal not eBay for an eBay transaction and comes up with a random number $165 USD for partial refund. How do I deal with this? I am spending too much time with scammer that comes up with new trick every week. I will have a nervous breakdown soon!
I just opened return request and ill probobly have to return item that i got to the seller. In return details there is seller's address written, the problem is that it is written with chinese letters. How do i address package with chinese letters? Is there anyway to check seller's address written in our alphabet?
I'm very confused at the moment. I'm trying to list an auction and there isn't an option to upload pictures for my auction (Ebay hosting as it is before. It just has a field to give an html link to a 3rd party picture hosting site. Did something change in the past couple of weeks? Help.
OK, here is the deal. I sell adult domain names in the Adult Only section of eBay. Apparently, eBay just underwent system maintenance approximately 22:00 PT (10pm) to 22:15 PT (10:15pm) on Thursday, April 23rd, according to eBay System Status Announcement Board (http://www2.ebay.com/aw/announce.shtml). Now, after their maintenance, I cannot access Adult Only searches, even within categories. If I click on Domain Names in Adult Only, I get zero (0) results with some ambiguous long search string nonsense. What is going on? Does anyone else have this problem with the Adult Only section? Great going, eBay. What will you fix next that isn’t even broken?
I only post my items when there is no listing fee, and I just realized I posted 3 items after my free listings had run out, so I had to pay like 30 cents on each of them. Is there a way to immediately retract my listing and get my money back? If not it's not a big deal but that really sucks, how I don't pay attention. Thanks for any help!
I am trying to think of a good name for my ebay store. I was thinking Twyla's Treasures. Any input?
For years we were doing at least 10.000$ a month in sales. This April 2015 we have 575$ in sales and 170$ ebay store payment + final value fees + pay pal fees + packing and shipping expenses. It looks like we will be losing money selling on ebay the first time ever. What's going on? March - April used to be normal months for us. This year it's a disaster. No sales, no traffic. I am a Top Rated Seller, always over 1500 items available, nice presentation.
Everything was selling until this year. Maybe I am missing something or doing something wrong. Even though I have a lot of experience in retail and e-commerce business. I just can not think of anything I can change or do differently. There is just no traffic. Ebay became a sleeping Kingdom for us.
Added "Make An Offer" option to 40% of our inventory. Let's see if that will make the waves.
How others are doing?
Please let me know if this is the wrong place to ask, but this is driving me up a wall. I concider myself as a moderatly experianced seller. For the last week when I go to list the page is in very tiny type. That is the only page like this on any site I use.
Jicked this up just because I though it was wall done, not because of any great value. I don't recognize the makers mark. Can anyone help?
I put up a listing with free shipping. I used sell similar, but it either defaulted back to padded priority envelope or I forgot to change it. I meant it to be first class because it's only 4 ounces. Do I have to send it priority or can I still send it first class since it is free shipping?
