I have iced teas and goblets with the same etched pattern, but may be different blank styles. The owner thought they were Fostoria Meadow Rose, but I've checked replacements site and Fostoria Crystal for America and am coming up empty for a Fostoria blank that matches these. 

The iced tea stands 6 3/4" tall and has a twist stem and ripple at the base of the bowl. It has a wide straight optic. The etch ---I don't know how to describe.

The goblet stands 7 7/8" tall and has a bulbous lady leg stem and a ripple at the base. Same optic. Same etch. 

The first picture shows the shape (I hope it's clear enough). The second shows the etch.

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you!

Frosted fruit three part relish with a dew drop pattern. The fruit pattern cups in on the bottom, is this considered intaglio? Measures around 8.5" across the top, 6" across the bottom and stands roughly 1" tall. Not sure if it's mid-century or newer? Any ideas? TIA!

I have no idea what this tool was made for.  It looks like wood, but I think it may actually be dark clay or a very old and brittle plastic.  The lighter residue in the grooves look like it may be clay.  Any help or ideas will be appreciated.

After reading this article I have left Ebay after 10 years!! I have spent 2 days talking to numerous CS reps who all have a different version of the new Defect rate.. Not to mention i read several of the threads and see that many of us long term sellers lost their TSD. I like many others had an ebay account when it started... Went away to college and reopened my account later.. For almost ten years i have had the same account with no problems.

 

I was told yesterday that I went from a 10 year power seller to below standard?? because of their new defect policy... Counting Neutrals as bad, refunds as bad, letting a buyer cancel an item is now my fault. So the things ive done as great customer service is now my bad. ..and the funny thing while I am on the phone with CS a case comes in... which im sure is now added to my defect rate... The item was delivered 4 days ago via usps.. yet somehow the buyer was able to open a case??? Ebay CS says there is no way to filter this and that because they created a case I caused a "Bad Seller Experience. Really?? The buyer received the item before the expected delivery date confirmed via usps.. and this is now my fault. That was Joe. Hung up with him called back after 58 minutes on hold sw Veronica who said she fixed the issue but i can still see the defect??

 

I have read everyones frustrations and I get it... I feel like we helped to create this site and we can do the same with another!!! Face it if were not selling items made in sweat shops in China they dont want us on here anymore. Its a sad truth.  If your done with Ebay try Bonanza. We know how Ebay was when it started if all the people i read are really done and leaving we can make another site what we did for Ebay...... I just imported my 1498 items I had in my store over there... Quick and Easy!!

 

So thanks Ebay.. for tens years ... I appreciate the higher fees, no longer allowed to leave feedback for buyers, ohh and had to leave before the no hassle fraud returns. No more headaches.. Im Ebay Free!!! Peace

 

Please post or respond ..

Normally when I go print a shipping label, I get a $2 to $3 commercial rate discount for Priority mail (usually around 15% or so of the shipping cost), but today when I went to print a label, I was treated with this:

 

 

 

I'm not complaining or anything, I'm more curious than anything.  I've never had anywhere near that large of a shipping discount.  That is for a 25-pound Priority Mail package from Michigan to Pennsylvania.

 

Can I expect to continue to receive these huge discounts?  Or is there some ebay promotion going on I'm not aware of?

I have a very heavy blue & tan(?) speckle bowl. It's 13" across & approx. 3" high. It's pretty shallow for the size; I'm not sure what it would have been used for. The bottom is brown/black & there is a black mark that could possibly be an F or G. Any information would be super appreciated.

It's a combination of cold paint and what looks like hand painting.  The locket is a birdhouse, with a pin in an odd spot on the back.  Wear it as a brooch and it's upside-down.  The pinback is probably meant to keep it from swinging around.  I added the chain, so that's no help.  The mark at the top looks like a place a maker's badge was supposed to go, but it was never soldered on.

I bought this vase from an older lady who said it was antique. I actually put it away & just found it. I'm cleaning out my butler's pantry & finding a lot of forgotten items so this will probably be the first of a few posts

The vase is approximately 8" high & about 5" across the widest point (the "arms"). There is a lot of crazing....not sure if that is actually due to the age or not. The bottom is interesting. It feels different (kind of rough), there looks like there is a "seam" in the middle & there's a dark ring around the rim. Any information would be appreciated. Please let me know if you need additional information from me. Thanks in advance for your time, help, & expertise.

Found a couple of beautiful pieces on my Monday morning thrift store treasure hunt, including this - bust? My first thought was that it appears to be a Peruvian indian done by a chief on peyote!

Seriously, it's beautiful, and I'm pretty sure it's suppose to be a face, but it is round and done in such a abstract way I could be wrong - I've never seen a round, ball shaped bust before.

Can anyone help me with identifying it? 

PS - it measures 4" W x 5" H

I appreciate any help.

Oh boy, it's FALL!  This is a wonderful time of the year---perfect for getting energized by the cool, crisp weather and getting down to work with fewer distractions.  Make a point of enjoying plenty of outside time before the harsh weather arrives, but let that be a good balance to the work of getting your items out there for our buyers.  This is the beginning of the heavy buying season, so get your listings ready to GO!    Everyone is welcome to join us, so if you need advice, companionship, or just a place to stop and chat awhile, we're here!

 

We have our usual array of lucky things---we're superstitious, it seems :-D---starting with Magic Listing Dust.

Finally, here are some suggestions to keep the money flowing.  We've culled these from years of experience and hope you'll be helped by them!

 

1. LIST AT LEAST ONE THING EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE WEEK!  If you are like some of us here, and have another job, write things up and schedule them to launch on a daily basis.

 

2. LIST IN A VARIETY OF FORMATS - Try some regular auctions, auctions with Buy it Now, Fixed Price, and Fixed Price with Best Offer. Not only will you get a better idea what works for YOU, but you'll offer buyers a variety of buying options.

 

3. OPTIMIZE YOUR LISTINGS – By using the free Terapeak Keyword app (find it in the Applications tab), learning how to take better photos (there are free courses online), changing the keywords on your store pages regularly, changing the opening blurb in your store header regularly (web spyders love new content) and experimenting with price changes UP as well as DOWN!

 

4. DON'T LET YOUR UNSOLD LISTINGS LAY AROUND - Check your My eBay page and click on Unsold...get those relisted ASAP! You've already done all the work, so be sure they're viewable by buyers!

 

5. OPEN A STORE - If you are wondering whether you are better off with a BASIC store or a PREMIUM store, figure that if you have over 250 store items, Premium is a better buy....under 250, Basic is....this is at least a rule of thumb to get you started.   Stores used to be great places to put items and keep them available year round, but with the fee changes, maybe not so much.

 

However, there are at least three really good reasons to have a store....listing fees are less if you have a store, your items can be separated into categories (much easier for buyers to shop), and you can run Markdown Manager sales.

 

6. DEAL WITH BIDDERS, BUYERS, AND ANNOYING INQUISITIVE POTENTIAL BIDDERS IN A PATIENT AND FRIENDLY WAY - Remember that it's worth money in your pocket and life is too short to have your tail in a knot.  Write up that snarky reply, get a laugh at it, then hit delete.  Kill 'em with kindness :-)

 

7. KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE! This thread is all about MAKING MONEY, that's for sure, but we feel that being supportive of our Lister Sisters and Brothers helps ALL of us. Drop in and hang out! Venting is allowed, but take it easy on the negative vibes and controversial off-topic issues such as politics and religion.

 

8. DON'T WORRY THAT YOU'RE NOT KEEPING UP WITH THE POSTS - We are HUGELY talkative, but rarely say anything that's absolutely crucial. If you feel like you missed something by not reading the last 10 pages, just ask!

 

9. RELAX and HAVE FUN with your Ebay venture. Life is too short to be uptight and/or grumpy. Decide TODAY to BE HAPPY. Then do it! It really is that simple.

Iridescent blue nugget ? (thanks, Crow) glass beads, lampwork beads, and the center blue bead appears to have foil inside. The silvertone rondells mimic rhinestones, but there aren't any rhinestones. The beads are strung on a fine link chain, and towards the clasp, there are a couple of fine wires that show in-between the beads. On the push-in part of the clasp, there's an "M" with "wings" at the top, or a "W" with wings at the bottom. I looked for the mark, but couldn't find it.

 

Any information appreciated, as always.

I'm unsure what color the non-AB beads are, but they're coated with teeny, tiny brown and clear glass beads. Does anyone know the name of this type of bead? Unmarked.

I posted this on one of the other jewelry forums, but didn't get any replies on this necklace, so thought I would try on this forum.

 

Is there a name for the Iridescent or aurora borealis blue glass beads, that are "bumpy?"

 

I think I've ID'ed the blue beads, with aventurune and pink roses, as Italian aventurine wedding cake beads, but would appreciate confirmation.

 

The larger blue beads have foil inside, but I don't know the correct name for them.

 

The silvertone metal rondell spacers mimic rhinestones from a distance, but there aren't any rhinestones.

 

The beads are strung on a fine link chain, and toward the clasp, on either side of the clasp, there are a couple of fine wires (photo 2)  that show in-between the beads.

 

On the push-in part of the clasp, there's an "M" with "wings" at the top, or a "W" with wings at the bottom. So far, I haven't been able to ID the mark. Anyone recognize the mark, or does it apply only to the clasp?

 

Newer or older? Does it need to be restrung?  And, any other thoughts appreciated. Thank you.

I can't find a record of this Fenton item anywhere, or find other examples of the decoration.  I found a similar iridescent color on the FentonFanatics QVC database, called Pink Chiffon Iridized, produced from 2000-2002.  There are Pink Chiffon and Pink Chiffon Opalescent examples in the regular Fenton catalogs from those years, but no iridized version.

 

I also found the decorator's name on the FentonFanatics list.  The urn has the Fenton-0 oval mark, but the years the artist was active at Fenton are not given.

 

Anyone have an idea?  Thanks!

Can anyone tell me what I have? Researching it shows it may be a 'Infant of Prague' statue, but mine seems older than a infant. It has a well made crown that comes off & has different colored rhinestones, and what looks like a globe? in his hand..

On the back bottom center  it is stamped M.T.A., the the numbers 765 & a copyright symbol - I can't find that anywhere with Google - does anyone know what M.T.A. is?

I have seen the prices on these range from $20 - $200!  With the nicely made crown & rhinestones, and it looking like it was hand painted, and the M.T.A. stamp - can someone tell where mine stands?

Thank you for any information!

I've done so much research, and seems there's a lot of info to confuse me:smileytongue: I think this is Guatemalan? And appears to be a Mayan God or Warrior. Figure is etched and cut out and band is Silver, quite ornate. To me, it almost looks Mexican? There are no hallmarks, but my jeweler did say it's Rose Gold and Silver. My acid tests it as 14k. But would love some Key Words and Info on who this might be and the Origin. Haven't seen ANYthing like it on ebay or google so far! Many Thanks!:heart:

So, I have never been subject to the payment hold before.  When my ID was locked out of the boards a few weeks ago, I made a new account just for board access.  Well that ID got a coupon incentive to sell, so I thought, sure, why not. 

 

Today when I went to try and print a label using these held funds, I could not find the option anywhere.  It kept trying to charge my bank account.  I could change it to credit cards, but I could not divine the super secret combo of keys that would allow me to print my postage using these held funds.

 

Can anyone post up how to actually print a label using those funds?

Using pending funds to pay for shipping If you print shipping labels on eBay (USPS domestic or First Class international), up to $15.00 of your buyer's funds will be available immediately to cover shipping costs for any order less than $50.00.

I am having trouble finding who made this plate.  I thought it was perhaps Royal Copenhagen but the symbol doesn't seem to match and I can't find an image of this plate.  It is marked on the bottom of the plate "Danmark".  It is a decorate plate as it has holes in the back for wire or string  to thread for hanging.  The plate measures 8 inches in diameter and is in the original box marked $60.  Who is the maker of this plate?  If by some chance it is Royal Copenhagen why can't I find another image like it? :smileyhappy:

 

 

Thank you so much in advance for any help I can get!  I have looked at so many images of this beautiful mermaid and can't find a thing!  Also looked at companies in Denamark and their maker's marks.

Selling question

My pictures of the makers mark are awful but I hope someone might recognize the design. I can't tell which way the mark is supposed to be oriented but I think the letters might be Mila. The mark is less than 1/8" long and inside the top of the ring that I cannot get a very good close-up. The ring is marked 750, tests as 18k gold and stones test as diamonds. Do you think it is old or what era?  Thank You!

Hi All, 

Does anyone have a site that lists fine gold jewelry brands or marks? I am trying to figure out age and maker of this gold ring. I have posted this on the Fine Jewelry category but haven't had any comments. The mark for the maker or brand is EXTREMELY small and I have not been able to get a clear enough photo. I think the letters are Mil or Mila. Thank You!

Because of the name and date and "Austria" written on the bottom I do not know what to make of this piece.  I am not sure if it is a previous owner or artist.  Also if it was made in Austria or bought there..  It stands about 3" tall.  Thanks in advance for any help.

I am preparing to list this charger, but I'm not sure how to describe it other than "Mexican folk art charger parrot bird design".  I've seen terms like "tlaquepaque", "talavera", "tonala", etc. to describe Mexican folk art....do any of these terms apply?  Are there any other search terms that I can use for this plate?  It measures approx 16.25" diameter and has what I assume to be the artist name on the back.  Any idea on the age or region in which it was produced?  Was it sold in Mexico or as a decorator piece in a US store?  I've sold a few pieces of Mexican folk art recently and I think it's cool looking, so I feel like I should learn a little more about it.  Thank you for any help you can offer!

This seems to be an oddball item. I think I have found that the Jasmine pattern came in two different colorways. So what the heck is this? Covered dish about 4.5" square with the red colorway on one side and the blue on the other. A china shop sample?

Hello - I picked this up at a church sale and am hoping someone could tell me something about it.  I believe it is Japanese silk on silk embroidery. Perhaps Vintage? It stands about 13 1/2 inches high and the frame is 8 inches in diameter. The frame looks to have on the idea of 'dove tails' to hold it together. I think it is a clear plastic as opposed to glass but hard to tell. It appears to be well done although simple. There is some writing on it. I hope someone can translate it.  Also, what would it be called? Any thoughts? Thanks - KB

Going thru some bins and found this still with the tag marked Styled by Jane Phalen on one side and Perfumer on the other. How were these used? Did you drape this over your neck? It was in a black drawstring bag marked Horne's and in the Horne's (department store) box.

titled 'Friends', is a limited edition of  115, and looks like it was signed by a R.D. Wilk or Will - but nothing comes up on either name.

Anyone know this artist?

Hello there,   This little dish measures about 3 3/4" across and 7/8" high.  It is stamped sterling and has a bronze (?) medal in the center ... 

 

Does anyone know if this had a purpose or was it just a decorative dish?   Does anyone know about these medals by Jean Dassier?  Specifically, how do I tell if this was an early minting (18th century) or one of the many remakes?  Probably doesn't matter with it being stuck there in the middle of a dish .... but I'm still curious.  Thanks for looking and for any information that you can share.

 

 

 

yes, it was polished ... apparently often - at least on this side.

Just found these today.  They look familar and pretty darned old.  The set isn't complete but they were cool, and priced for the value of the box by itself.  Maybe under.  One of them, the blue enamel, is English, but the others aren't marked.  The only Button group is deader than a doornail so I figured I'd ask the joolies.  These are quick and dirties.  I'll see if I can get a better shot tomorrow when I have some real light.

There is a large ring of multipe sellers selling Fake Pandora on Ebay right now.  Huge amounts of it.  I am a seller of genine Pandora products and it is killing buyers faith to purchase Pandora on Ebay.   I called Ebay today to give them a heads up.  I asked if there was a way to speak to someone and turn them on to what is going on.   They told me to take the time to Report the fakes.  Well tonight I went through 2000 Pandora items and 32 sellers selling the fakes!  It is a ring and if someone at Ebay would just listen to me about how to spot them, I would tell them.  This is hurting sellers and Ebay too by giving Ebay a reputation of selling fakes.  

 

There are 52,000 Pandora items on Ebay!  At this point, based on the indicators of what the sellers all do, I estimate that 30% of the Pandora on Ebay is fake.

 

I am sooooo frustrated.  Why can't someone from Ebay call me so that I can help them get rid of the fakes???  Do they not care that there are fakes on their website?  It is killing the legit sellers.

eBay put a note on one of my items saying it has not had any sales in 16 months. I sell new old stock of electronic components and many items don't sell for a long period of time. I don't want eBay to micro-manage my selling, I am very experienced at selling my own things and know how long items have been listed. How do I delete this note, it is just like a note we would put in ourselves under the item but I cannot delete this one. I even made a revision to see if it would go away and it did not. It is too late to call them or I would. Can I stop this from ever happening again? I am **bleep** just because I don't need their help managing my items. #@$% they make me mad as #$^& some times

Are you around today?

 

Rather than keep that last drag old thread going (the one about the Michael Kors purse),

I thought I'd reply here and say thanks for your persistance on fighting the point that what happened was wrong..

I too have been in the so called 'right circles', and got out as well. Moved to the mountains a few years back to out

of the rat race. 

 

Speaking on another note. I had a first today.

A woman bought heels from me, ruined them (tore them up with a razor blade and peeled off the soles),

sent photos into Ebay, and had the case ruled in her favor. Even though her photographs

are completely opposite to the ones I took (Ebay admitted to me they looked nothing like the original photographs),

I guess that now doesn't matter.

 

What ever happened to people returning items in the same condition they were shipped?

I thought that USE to be a policy? Now I'm going to get a ruined pair of heels returned to me,

and there's nothing I can do about it. Or is there?

 

Should I esculate this case to Ebay or is it not worth the effort?

Based on lack of answer in the weekly eBay chat, sellers should assume that buyers can potentially dispute PayPal transactions in dating far back as May-22-2014 come Nov-18th. Assume PayPal 180 days dispute policy is retroactive...

 

May not be a showstopper for many, but something to factor into one's business model - selling less risky items, higher markups, taking a selling break until the dust settles, getting a merchant account / not accepting PayPal, etc.

Selling discussion

Hello everyone,

 

I think I got scammed. Here is what happened:

 

I sold an item recently (an instrument cluster with 120k miles on clock), item was as described, however the only problem was buyers competency before buying the item. (when you put a cluster on another car, it can show random numbers and will have a big dot near where it says how many miles there was, which means that mileage is incorrect! you can fix this by going to your automobile shop and programing it, even new clusters need to be programed). So he was disatisfied and described item as "signitificantly not as described", however it was working very well and was in tact as i've described it, so i've read the other feedbacks that he had left and alot of people were complaining that he is very abusive and leaves negative feedbacks for no reason without contacting sellers. I was afraid to get a negative feedback, because I am a new seller and feedbacks really matter, so I refunded him, because I had to answer in 3 days, or eBay would credit me, so the same day I refunded him, however he didn't send the item back, when I asked him to do so, he used hate language - "F*** u" and left a negative feedback, as i understand he is not willing to send me an item back. Is there any way that I can get the money back or a cluster back, or somehow atleast delete a feedback that he left for no reason? Please let me know how to handle this situation and what can be done? Thank you for your replies in advance!

 

Shipping & Returns question

I have all settings as stock ebay.

 

How many of these cards, card-sets do you get if you search for

 

" gmh cards of knowledge "

 

I get 6

 and in sold items I think 2 or 3

 

My point being, if one guy is selling those for $5.99 then $16.00 got one at $23.00 

 

That means the WHOLE ebay world, in the world, only 6 of these are around out of 25 million items ? then is only worth less than $20.00 ?

 

I think ebay is blocking piles of things, so I wonder how many you find.

 

Thanks.

Ebay let me know last month that I could list 200 items with no charge.  I only have about 70 listed.  Today I had 10 items listed.  Suddenly I noticed they were charging me .30 for each item. I thought that I had my account set up to only ship to the USA...today I noticed that it says I ship to other countries...I don't want to do that. Also Today they have in red c. $price under my price that I put in. I don't understand this. Please help me.

Selling discussion

A few weeks ago, I was selling some stuff. I got an offer, accepted it, and the buyer never payed so I didn't send the item. Relisted it and I got another offer, accepted it and what do you know? That buyer didn't pay either and I did not send the items. However, since I accepted the offers a few days later I got an email saying that I needed to pay my invoices. I was confused! I did not get paid, yet, they're charging me! I was selling those items because I really needed the money and didn't want to borrow it. Now they're charging me and I don't even have the money to pay! Is there anyway they can cancel those fees? Or at least lower it or give me an extension so I can figure something out?

My Account discussion

There is a listing in question here, one that contains an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 Active.  It came from AT&T's certified, like-new program and included original packaging and everything that came with it.  It was unused and unrefurbished, according to the AT&T people, but still came from their 'like-new' program.  Seller indicated it was 'New, other' and has a shot of the packaging in the listing pictures.  Buyer did not clarify this, but was unhappy afterwards.  Was the 'New, other' category appropriate from a phone purchased through such a program?  Is there any guidance in ebay's archives and such for something like this, that could help clarify whether it's an issue of the seller incorrectly listing something or the buyer not paying attention?  

 

Thanks!

Bidding & Buying discussion

What would make an item not eligible for buyer protection? I know of a seller who won a case against a buyer claiming SNAD. They were told that the item was not covered under BP. It was a collectible, not anything odd or questionable. The buyer had opened the package using a knife, but claimed the damage was not from that.

 


Just wondering what would costitute BP not covering an item.

 

 

PS The buyer was in the wrong.

Selling discussion

I bought an item from a seller, who misdescribed the item, and I left negative feedback as they dint care or want to resolve the situation., so they start to send me abusive emails. I have tried to contact ebay but it is so hard to do so, there was once a link to flag such issues, it seems ebay dont wnat he hassle, anymore. Anyone got any ideas?

Bidding & Buying question

So there is a major issue with the eBay contact seller system for a buyer. I've had a number of buyers opening for item not received using the contact seller options. But then they come back stating they didn't mean to open a case, they just wanted to message me about the package. 

 

I just had a ebay customer service rep walk me through how to contact the seller about an item not received yet. They said go to your purchase history, then go to "view order details", then click on "contact seller" (pops open a new tab). That page says "find answers from "sellers name", you then select the topic "I didn't receive my item", which then opens a box underneath showing the tracking information. In blue it has the link "contact the seller". That then takes you to the resolution center to "communicate with seller". Once you complete the information and press submit, it opens a case. 

 

What buyers are not realizing is this is actually opening a case for "item not received", but yet they are just trying to contact the seller. No where on the page does it state specifically this is opening a case against the seller. The buyer comes to this page thinking they are going to be sending the seller a message. 

 

Is anyone else having this same issue or your thoughts? Any suggestions on how to "educate" buyers how to actually message the seller without accidently opening a case?

 

Thanks,

I ordered some free boxes from the USPS website.  They're flat rate with insurance guaranteed and I was just wondering if that means I don't have to print postage when I use them.  Do I just take it to the post office, get it scanned and pay there?  If I do print postage will that override the flat rate?  Will the tracking number somehow be listed on the item on my store page like when I print?  Here's a picture of the box.

Shipping & Returns discussion

I know it's the selling board, but I wanted to give you a heads up...

 

First time trying the GSP, which I really didn't like up front because I'm in Canada, but the items bought (4 art posters) were interesting even with the fees related.  The tracking was not efficient, but the delivery was pretty fast (within a week from California to Quebec)!  Problem is that the posters were damaged while en route...  It wasn't really noticeable on the outside, but the tube was softer in a part, and I presume it was crushed somehow on the way (posters have two binding marks, the kind that leaves permanent damage).  The seller is very sorry when I notice him of the problem, and offer a partial refund (between a quarter or a third of the price, depending if I consider the GSP fees) throught eBay messaging (not on this item, so there is no trace of the problem on his seller file for now).  Very considerate of him, but the posters are not good enough for me in this state, so I politely refuse while stating I'd prefer to go through the resolution center and blame it on the GSP.

 

You can read here that the seller is responsible only in the mailing portion where it's sent to the US shipping center (Who is responsible if the item is lost or damaged?):

http://pages.ebay.com/sellerinformation/ship-smart/advanced-shipping/Global-Shipping-Program/GSPUAFAQs/index.html

 

Since items are verified at the shipping center before being forwarded (there was a Pitney Bowes seal tape on one end of the tube, masking a cut opening in the original packing), the damage could only happen on the trip from the shipping center to my address, right?  So I can not find the seller to be responsible with this problem...

 

THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE RESOLUTION CENTER ONLY PERMITS ME TO PUT THE BLAME ON THE SELLER!

 

There is no entry solely related for the shipping portion AFTER the seller fulfilled his duties...  So I'll be forced to ask for a complete refund to the seller in lieu of disputing the shipping responsabilities with the GSP.

 

Therefore, you sellers have no chance up front...  I'm afraid this seller will lose his money, and I don't think they'll make me send it back his posters (I will certainly not pay for the return shipping).

 

Anyone here in the same boat, from the seller's side?

 

 

Selling discussion

So I offered to purchase a item for 700 bucks on ebay. He said in his description that he is accepting offers but there is no buy it now or best offer. The auction Is still going and he accepted the offer I made him because he doesn't want to pay the 10% to ebay. He wants to go straight through paypal so he is sending me a invoice. What I'm worried about is since I technically will not be the last bidder on the item on ebay (I'm assuming he's going to end the auction) will I still be covered. Because paypal covers you buying and receiving items that you bought offline. But since I actually didn't buy it off ebay or any other website am I covered? And what happens if I receive the item but not as described? Like damaged or something totally different? I know that they say you are covered if you don't receive the item but what if it isn't the item? Thanks for your time. I just want to know how safe I am. I've tried doing my research just can't find what I'm looking for.
