I bought an item with FREE SHIPPING.

 

freeshipping1.jpg

 

Then I received an invoice that included US$ 3.00 shipping cost.

invoice1.jpg

 

This must a bug in the eBay system. I refuse to pay on principle.

I contacted the seller. No answer. I Wanted to contact eBay too, but the 'contact' process is driving me nuts. Seems totally designed to discourage you to contact support personnel.

Anyway, now the seller has opened an unpaid item case. Again there's no way to enter my side of the story.

I will not pay shipping cost. Very very unhappy with eBay. Am starting to look for alternatives after being a member since 1999.

 

Anybody with the same experience? Any suggestions on how to proceed, other than abandoning eBay?

Bidding & Buying discussion

Hello. I was wondering if anyone has had similar issues...

 

I was looking at my seller dashboard this morning and noticed that I had a 1.74% on my Return Rate section. The reason It caught my eye was that it said 3 of 127 transactions. I have been selling on eBay since 1986 but I'm not a high volume seller. I had only become a top rated seller about a year ago now. Thing is, since the upgrade to top seller status, I HAVE NOT HAD ANY RETURNS TO DATE! How can it tell me I have 3 when that's not possible. When I click on the link to see all returns, I get a blank returns screen. Maybe I just don't know enough about this part of the top seller reports or is it clearly an eBay mistake? This picture was taken last week...Would love to hear from other sellers if they have any similar issues or maybe they can explain it to me...Thanks!

My Account question

Hello - first of all, is this a tray, underplate, charger?  Also, the hallmark at the back upper rim looks like F,S,U, then maybe a bird or rooster with a comb or feathers, then 58.  I have tried researching this, but am not having any luck with those letters.  The piece is 10" in diameter.  Thanks so much for any help you can provide.

Help with maker on teal jasperware pitcher

I  have acquired a small collection of what look to me like silver, or perhaps billon, coins.  Maybe from somewhere in the Turkey - Persia - India region?

 

They each measure between approx. 14mm and 20mm in size.  Some have concentric circles in the middle, some do not.  They look to me as though they were hand hammered.

 

Any help in identification as when and where these were struck would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lee

 So I picked up these 2 necklaces as part of a costume jewelry lot.

The first piece is stamped "14K" (I haven't had it tested yet.)

It "looks" like an older piece, BWDIK??

If it is in fact older, what era?

 The second one same question.

Does it look like a "real" flapper necklace or just one that wants to beSmiley Wink

I'm going to stick my neck out and list an item with this title:

This is it:

It is CLEARLY a US item but I'm afraid eBay will only see "Cuba" and ax the listing.
If so, then I'll have to look into Amazon.

Age & Origin of these Silver Earrings?

Smiley Mad

 

So I get a "We are sorry" email from ebay and send me a code to get 5bucks off my next purchase.  But after a couple of days trying the code, i think i was given  an expired coupon because it doesnt work. 

 

So i reply to the email i got witth the code. But the reply address is no good.  So then i spend lots of time going through the fancy automated customer service system, but get NO WHERE with finding a solution to this problem. 

 

So i finally get to aplace where ebay can call me back if i provide them with my phone number.   So I sit and wait idly by for the all important phone call that never occurred. Later i find an email in my inbox citing they couldnt reach me.    But i am boggled by this email response because 1) my phone service does record all incoming and outgoing phone numbers plus provides a bunch of fancy features as well in order to ensure me, ie the customer, with never missing a phone call , But utimately, nothing was recorded as having been made from ebay.   And 2, i know the phone number i provided was accurate, else ebay would have been unable to email me.

 

So after much time spending on Ebay **bleep**py Customer Service System, I calculate that instead of getting a 5 buck credit for an ebay inconvenience regarding a past order that was less than stellar, i have incurred a defeciet much greater than 5 bucks for bad customer service that is undoubtedly less than steller.

 

What now?

 

Wait a few days to cool off then Ebay at the 1800 number and raise hell?  Should i again have to allocate my valuable time to call ebay, go thru their automated system, then be placed on hold, then chew out some poor woman sitting in some cubicle in india?

ebay customer service sucks, right?

Anyone else having problems with bulk shipping today? Just spent the last 2 hours having to print my labels one at a time. No bulk shipping on eBay or Paypal.

 

Instead of the usual screen when I select all orders and hit "Print shipping labels" I'm getting the attached screen. I've never seen this before. Tried restarting my computer thinking maybe a weird occurance, no luck. Tried laptop, same thing, phone, same thing. Paypal bulk shipping tool won't work either...try to import all PayPal items and nothing...Anyone have a fix for this? I can't do this again tomorrow. It will literally take me 5-6 hours to print my labels if I have to do them all one at a time.

 

 I tried following the instructions on the screen shot ...log in to PP, etc...nothing. Just had to do every label one..at...a...time. I have about 20 people that won't be getting their orders on time now.

Howdy. I'm hoping someone might recognize this interesting blue vase, with a great delphinium speckled glaze. My first thought was Niloak, but I can't find a matching shape in my one reference. It measures 7 inches high at the chevron in the center of the rim, 6 inches wide, and 4-1/8 inches wide across the unglazed foot ring. There is a suggestion of marks under the glaze, but they're hopeless (not raised, not visible, no digital manipulation helped). Any suggestions appreciated! Best, George

Hi all,

I found this painting at a local thrift store & thought it was cool - and definitely 70's (it's dated 1973)! The signature on the back looks like D.C. DeMeulmeeter. I found a abstract artist named Amand DeMeulmeester, but no DC DeMeulmeester; could they be the same somehow? If not does anyone know abaout DC or is this just a weekend artist's work?

Thanks, I appreciate any help.

Cute Asian Motif carved stone necklace. The small green bead must be jade/jadeite, but how about the stone? I'm thinking it's soapstone, but I notied some green when viewed from the bottom.

Carved Stone Necklace

So buyer went directly to PayPal to file a claim on me and PayPal favor on the buyer as the item which is 100% brand new and claim by its buyer that it was deflective after installing onto the vehicle less than 1 day. To fast forward on 8/26/2016 buyer send back the item and guess what. Item was shipped back but not in its originally packaging. So knowing I should have a winning case, I called PayPal and told them the situation and I also took picture of the comparision of an ORIGINAL packaging and also the buyer packaging. Paypal said it will investigate and reopen the claim.

 

On 8/27/2016, I decided to open the package and check if everything was there. Again to my surprise, knowing I should win the appeal, I see there were missing items and the product have visible damage. I took pictures and upload to PayPal and also contacted Paypal and they also documented my information and also investigate on the claim. 

 

On 8/28/2016 I check on my PayPal account and see the status of the case. To my very disappointed surprise, PayPal closed the case and ultimately favor on the BUYER again. After submitting all the pictures of the actual item with missing item, damage item and non acceptable packaging. Paypal still favor on the Buyer. I called paypal and see what is going on and I explained to them about the situation. PayPal said since the buyer went directly outside of Ebay and went directly to PayPal, PayPal will overwrite anything from Ebay. Meaning what ever I listed on the return policy such as return the item at its original condition and original packaging on Ebay, PayPal will not validate that claim. All I can say is I am currently $440 in the hole for something that PayPal favor on the buyer where the buyer was not happy on the item, return the item back without the original packaging, used and damaged item, and missing parts. So right now I like to see if any Ebay seller experience any of these situtation where I can at least have a fighting chance. As of right now, PayPal will reopen the case and do another review. So I like to see what I can do to go forward on this matter. Ebay are not helping me as the claim was done outside of Ebay and buyer went through PayPal.

 

here is my item and please tell me who should win this Claim?

This vase with landscape and peacock caught my attention. It remined me of Newcomb Pottery. It's Artist signed.  The artist signed in gold 1918.  It isn't your typical Japanese landscape but looks like it was made for export. The body of the vase color is similar to Satsuma, but no crackling.  It wasn't until I uploaded the pictures of the base that i even noticed it had an impressed Japan mark. 

 

The artist name doesn't appear to be Japanese.. I'm puzzled.  Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi everyone.  Hoping Walter stops in for this one.  The scary clown is 10 inches in height and made with a dense, heavy solid ceramic or porcelain.  It weighs 2 pounds 10 ounces.  It is signed on the left heel but I can not make out the first word.  The second word is Pesaro.  We thought Pesaro was the last name but it appears to be the town in Italy where this piece was made. 

 

It is hand made and you can actually see finger prints impressed on the bottom of the foot.  It is covered with a thick, white glaze with crackle lines.   Any thoughts or ideas appreciated.  Thanks!

I will try to be brief.

Bought something I thought remarkable beautiful never saw before.

Paid $110.

Finally got to listing it as I've done since 1998.

4 Some strange reason I then looked it up here before just taking at least 5, 6 pix and filling out the item listing form.

Usually a new unusual item will take me 3/4 to 1 hour between the photography, listing, measuring, selling, thinking, revising etc.

 

Here is where I'm shocked.

Comparable things here now sell at very very rock bottom low prices.

And underneath the listings I looked up, there are EBay suggestions with some items from India selling at $.01, a penny!

And if that was'nt enough competition underneath that are sponsored listings of like stuff which would be completing with me.

 

Yada Yada Yada.

 

I didn't bother to list this item as I saw I'd have no chance in selling it.

 

Sad.  This never happened before.  I usually would go full steam ahead and photograph & list.

 

But now I really know this would have No chance in selling on EBay.

Recently, I sold an item through the bidding system. I did a check up on the item because technology tends to break down without notice, so I did and it wasn't functioning correctly. The item sold for under MSRP. I had to cancel the order because obviously I can't ship a broken item that I claimed was "Like New." to a customer. The customer then begins to bash me through emails and accusing me that I didn't want to sell the item because he won the bid at under the MSRP. (Note: He won the bid by $20 under the MSRP of $279). Obviously, I didn't cancel the order because the bid was low, but because the item was not working properly. He continues to bash me saying I was a liar and sounded very unprofessional. He then offer a solution telling me to send him the broken item for him to test it. I personally couldn't agree to it because I need the item on me to be able to RMA (warranty) it to the manufacturer ASAP and there was a chance he could open a fraud case and may not send it back to me use that advantage to RMA the item. 

 

In other words, how do I approach this professionally? I already sent him an email telling him my reasons for the cancel order but he continues to bash on me that it sounded like a kid or an immature adult that wants to make a huge fuzz about it.

Hi everyone, I have been on here for quite a while and thought I knew what I was doing but sales have completely dried up... Can anyone take a look at my shop and advise what on earth might be wrong? I recently converted to a shop to see if that helped but it really hasn't so but if a waste of £20 a month.

 

Kind regards,

I sold an item today that is (for me) in the higher dollar range. The last 3 I sold, it was very apparent the buyer was in some way in a field of work that required this item. This last sale has me a bit baffled because this does not appear to be the case in any way, shape or form. .

 

No red flags, in fact this appears to be an excellent buyer. Just a little want of caution on my part and I would like to go ahead and pay the extra to require signature for receipt required. I will also be paying for insurance (USPS)  Would this make a purchaser upset or angry? If someone else other than the purchaser signs for it and there is something strange going on will I be covered? Any direct experience with this would be appreciated. ThanksSmiley Happy

I accepted a Best Offer on an item, but the buyer didn't pay or communicate for 5 days.  I opened an unpaid item dispute after 2 days.  Finally a few hours before I'm able to close the case and get the fees back the buyer paid.  However, with the extra hassle so far, I really don't want to deal with this person, so, I want to cancel the order, can I do this?  What will happen?

Selling discussion

In recent years, digital items have become increasingly more popular. However, eBay still requires you to send these out with a tracking number, defeating the whole purpose of what these items are meant for in a way. Does anyone know why they don't implement a system where you can simply enter a code into a field specifically meant for this which goes directly to the buyer? Doesn't seem like it would be too difficult, especially with the budget eBay has. It would prevent a lot of fraud that has been going on via the site as well. Thougts?

Selling discussion

Buyer said item didn't work, but they took it to Staples to be checked.  Now she wants to return item for refund and she contacted ebay. I thought once a business checked out the item, it nullified any returns. 

 

 Item was returned to me, I checked it and it works fine.  Do I have a leg to stand on with ebay or should I just forget it?

On another ID, I'm a bronze power seller. My dashboard shows that's at risk with this explanation: "Alerts You are at risk of losing your PowerSeller level because you missed the sales requirements last month."

 

Looking at the details, I have green checkmarks for everything, including September's evaluation. The requirement is $3k/100 transactions for the last 12 months. I'm at $7k/150 transactions.

 

Is there a monthly requirement, besides the annual $3k/100 requirement?

Has anyone found a work around?  My Store page has the opening price from AUD converted to potential buyers currency.  But when they go to an item, all is in AUD not their currency.  I understand the confines of Auction pricing so that's OK BUT I need to embed a currency converter.  The one ebay provides is not available for use in Australia.  Help please.  Cheers  Marie

As a buyer I won an auction and payed immediately.
Next day I received an email seller cancelled the order and refund without any reason.

 

Is there a way to leave a feedback as regular purchases?

Is it normal that a seller can have an evaluation of 100% if canceled paid purchase orders?

Thank you

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON DROP SHIPPING

 I can understand a Seller Blocking Buyers for many different reasons but I have only ever been blocked by (1) Seller,ever. I believe that I have been on eBay since 2001 and I am mostly a buyer but I do sell on and off. I was Blocked for asking him a question on a coin he was selling and just today I found the answer to that question. Coin listings now have a small phrase unter the price that may say something like this, " 48 for 12 months", When I asked if he had a layaway plan for buying he got extremely mad at me. Anybody can check this out and today I found out that it is PayPal that adds this on postings.PayPal now has a lay-a-way program and I did not know that !

  I appologize to you Sir ! I have, over the years bought well over $ 1,000 worth of coins from you and I would like to continue that process with you. I have always trusted you and have always given you a 100% good Feedback on every sale. I have been collecting for 55+ years , I am almost 72 years old and please UNBLOCK me. I am truly sorry !

Sellers Blocking Buyers

There was a recent post about a seller who didn't provide a tracking number, case was escalated, etc. As part of his post, he pasted the response he got from CS.

 

There's a part of the response that caught my eye. Here is part of the CS response:

 

"...we expect our sellers to be at par when it comes to providing customer service, therefore, using ‘Seller Standards’ to focus on what matters most to buyers; these include but not limited to: getting the item they ordered on time, receiving an item as described on your listing and providing effective customer service to resolve any requests for help from your buyers. This is measured in 3 metrics: • Defect rate • Late shipment rate (starting February 2016) • Cases closed without seller resolution."

 

What I'm curious about is CS saying one seller performance metric is late shipping rate. I thought we were measured by only two metrics: out of stock and cases closed w/o seller resolution?

 

Maybe I dreamed it, but I seem to recall Griff saying several times that the shipping metric wouldn't be used against sellers (or something.)

 

What am I missing here?

Hello!

 

I just wanted to know if this wallet is authentic. It certainly feels right--and smells real. Smiley Happy

 

I have examined the stitching, the stamping, etc. It looks good, but there is one area of stiching that is uneven. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Here are the pictures.I think i have to split them into two messages. If you require any other pictures please let me know.

 

Thank you very much for your time.

Does eBay have a time limit on how long a buyer has to pay for an item after their best offer is accepted before I cancel the order and relist the item?   Which means I lose "x" amount of days of listing the item before I can relist it, and lose other potential buyers during that time.  Doesn't seem fair!  Anyway, how long does a buyer on an accepted best offer have to pay before it becomes a bad deal for me?

Payments question

If I want to sell a product that is a "knock-off" but I do not refer to the brand and do not list as authentic, is that permissible?

Buyer is asking about international shipping fees to the UK but I'm shipping using the global shipping program.

 

I selected "buyer pays shipping"

and selected  "Send your package to the US shipping center and the rest will be taken care of for you"

 

I've never sold internationally before, but shouldn't the shipping be calculated automatically for the buyer?

Is there any other fees or will they simply be charged what is displayed in the ad as their shipping cost?

Shipping & Returns question

Apparently the shipping estimate on the product page said it would arrive Sep. 3rd at latest. When I printed the shipping label however, it wouldn't let me do anything over a pound that wasn't priority mail, so the package got there yesterday. The buyer sent me a message yesterday saying that he just got delivery confirmation but wasn't home, and that if he got home and it wasn't there, I'm paying for it. Predictably, today he sends me a message saying 'it wasn't in my door'. Now what?

Selling question

I just noticed that today when I was beginning to print some labels. I sell a bunch of small things (video games, small tools) that weigh up to 3oz, and normally I'd pay $2.45 (after the shipping discount from eBay).

 

Now, each 3oz item I've gotta ship is $2.60. There's an eBay discount of 1%, which is barely a cent or two. This is a USPS First Class package I'm printing here.

 

I'd understand if USPS is jacking up their prices again, but what's with the pitiful 1% discount all of a sudden? Does eBay hate me?

 

Below is a screenshot of the price summary of a label I was trying to print.

Just noticed I have seller fees of $7.06, due  Aug 30th. The problem is I have not sold anything on Ebay since mid June. I paid the fees for my June sales last month. So I have had no sales or activity of any kind for one pay period. How come I owe seller fees???

Does Ebay do that with everyone? Imagine the money they're raking in!!

I sent the package thru GSP - it got recorded in the Global Shipping Center in Kentucky 

Tracking number shows it traveling to UK & delievered to buyer

 

Buyer says the wrong pkg was delivered to her but has my tracking number on the label.

GSP in Kentucky put the wrong label on my box & sent her heavy duty computer cables instead of 2 vintage pocketbooks

She's now saying I have to refund her the full amount - she reported the item to ebay as wrong item delivered and makes

it look like its my fault and not ebay GPS shipping program. Buyer says I should refund her the full amount and then I have

to spend time getting ebay to re-emberse me. I thought thru the global shipping program once it leaves Kentucky - I'm 

relieved of responsibilty - so why do I have to refund and then deal with ebay to refund me? 


Any answers???

I use ebay's regular rich text format to create my listings from a desktop computer. I'm not using HTML

 

 I've recently used the eBay viewpoint  "test" and listings are  not mobile compatible. YIKES! 

 

Have i missed a box to check or some listing tool that allows me to enable this header to be inserted during the listing creation process?

 

Why wouldn't eBay automatically provide this mobile viewpoint  metatag information when creating a listing from a desktop? 

 

Help appreciated!

Inserting the viewpoint header metatag

Reveived a message in my email that I tie to Ebay Sales.  It appeared in my SPAM folder and appeared

as if it came from Ebay from a buyer posing a question.  It DID NOT come from Ebay messaging.

 

Buyer states that it has been 5 days since he paid for an item (shows over $1000) and I dont even know

what this item is let alone sold something to anybody this expensive.  Buyer states that he has contacted me

multiple times ( first time I saw anything on this ) and now threatens to report to the Police.

 

How ( or do I ) even respond back to this?  It would appear that this is some sort of scam.

 

Has anybody got anything like this before and what did you do about it.

 

Again, this came into my Spam email, not thru ebay messaging.

 

Thanks in advance

eBay overcharging seller fee?

I have less than 12 hours to go on 2 different items I'm trying to sell on auction. They are big/bulky so I opted to offer local pickup only. Lots of people have looked at the items, but no one is watching or bidding. I've tried to revise the items, but can't seem to get the shipping option changed. How do I offer shipping now? And what's the best way to ship big heavy items? Thank you. 

Shipping & Returns question

I had an item listed at $850 minimum and $1200 BIN. Someone offered $1075 now and I'm good with that. They placed a bid for $1075, but they are the only bidder now, so the price still sits at $850. If I end the auction, I'll have the $850, not the $1075 we agreed on. I can't edit the item to change the BIN to $1075. How can I end the auction and sell it to them for the $1075 we agreed on?

I potential buyer has made an offer that consists of free shipping on one of my listing that has a shipping fee and even though I counter the buyer with the same total amount of dollars that he offered he is insisting on free shipping. I don't think I can change the shipping within the listing while an offer is pending so what are my options?
