I won my auction 2 weeks ago and sender was ship my package via USPS Priority International.


Problem is, I live in Thailand and my eBay shipping address is seriously obvious. How USPS can be wrong by sent my package to Taiwan?


USPS sent it wrong


What the **bleep** is this? Freaking horrible USPS service right there. It's said Thailand, not Taiwan!!!


Now, I contacted to seller for this problem and help to contact to USPS.

Only thing  I can do right now is wait and wait......


I hope that seller and USPS can help this can be ship to my country.

So anyhow I've been looking for info on this company and I'm not seeing much out there. I was thinking that possibly it's a sub compaony for a larger mfg?

New message from: quantech (1,346Red Star)
Second request. I would like to ask one more time to correct the negative feedback you have left on this working item. I take feedback seriously.
You want to save money, but can't fix things yourself, and depend on some anonymous "service technician"... who claims the LED panel issue you have that is attached to my part...claims My part is bad. Is this person GE certified? I don't think so...in fact I am certain.

Sorry, I have witnesses to saw the part working before disassembly. An LED issue like you are having is connector related, not due to my part.

If you take no further action, then, you can a LIBEL law suit will be files in the court of Washington County, Iowa, against your unsupported slanderous posting on an electronic forum, to protect my integrity and business credentials.

YOU will have to provide PROOF of your statement, in a Court of Law, not to eBay, not to me.


What do you do with people like this????

Just thought this thread might be fun to share some of our favorite SATURDAY childhood memories.


I loved it when I could spend a Saturday morning watching cartoons.

They had the best cartoons in the 60's and Saturday mornings were cartoon marathons.

Some of my favorites were the Flintstones, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Road Runner

and I always wanted to live in a Jetsons world, LOL, still do.

Back then, it was ok to eat sugary cereals like my fav, Cocoa Puffs. Heart

If I wasn't watching cartoons,I was out grocery shopping with my parents which

I really didn't like. But I did like going to the bakery and the meat market.

Both were always crowded and you had to take a number and wait, wait, wait.

I'll never forget the meat market had saw dust on the floor and the bakery

smelled like heaven. I usually saw a classmate or neighbor at one of these

stores and there was always the sound of happy chatter all around you.


Well, that's a bit of my fav Saturday memories, so let's hear yours.

I don't know how many of you know that PayPal offers reduced "Merchant rate" fees.

No, they don't advertise those or just give them to you "Willy Nilly". You will need to upgrade your PayPal account to a business account and then apply for those "Merchant rate" fees.


If you sell for $3,000 or more each month it is well worth it!

If you receive more than $10,000 a month you will really feel that difference between the regular 2.9% fee and the 2.2% fee. Believe me...


Here is how it is done:

Good morning- now that I finally have time to give to my items, yet another question...these are Kathi Urbach creations, vintage, 1940"s. I have found very little on her work, and nothing at all like this set. I have found precious few stand alone dolls, and zero dolls that are in beautiful wooden pagoda style shadow displays. They are hand signed, very, very detailed and vibrant, the boxes are well built and quite heavy, the dolls ( need a clean..) have the signature emerald green eyes, tiny shell detailing, the boxes are beautifully hand painted and adorned, large, boxes come in at 23x16, the sculptures at 13 1/2". The boxes are hand signed on the bottoms, also shell adorned. Highly detailed and I am certain, pain staking in their construction. I need some information help, legwork, to try to value roughly, even 1 comp wold help, assuming it's apples to apples.  Regards V76IMG_4459.JPGIMG_4462.JPGIMG_4461.JPGIMG_4460.JPGIMG_4458.JPG

Hi there. I have this glass bead necklace that's in need of an ID. It reminds me of the wedding cake beads just a little I guess with the swirls. I googled glass beads with swirls and with other descriptions with no luck.


Does anyone have a clue to what these beads are referred to as and age frame?

Good morning- I have looked for, in vain, information about  original signed Kathi Urbach dolls in SIGNED wooden display cases... these  are large, the beautiful gilt and shell adorned pagoda style  wooden boxes are 23 x 16, the dolls stand @ 13.5.  They have the signature emerald green eyes. Composed of fabric, with ( again) the signature tiny shell detailing. These are very rare on their own, but the beautiful black  shadow boxes are ...well..nowhere. I have tracked down a few smaller Urbach creations, but not with the display that was also made by and adorned by, ( and hand signed) by Kathi. I do not know how even to place any kind of value on them, nothing to compare them to that I can find. Help.Please. ( and yes, they need a clean, I am just too afraid to damage..)

Can anyone tell me what I have? It is a wood (I believe - look at ears where metal isn't) carved horse covered in a thin metal or brass overlay. Even the tail is covered in metal or brass. And the saddle - plus the front of the horse's neck - have bells on them.


Is this piece old? I think so, but the padding under the hooves makes me think it's newer - unless added later?

Is it russian?

I've tried researching it, but have only found some with a hammered brass on the saddle or the horse's mane & tail - none completely covered.

Would appreciate any help knowing what it is I found!

But it also has chinese characters written inside - to help the person putting it together remember what piece goes with what - which you don't see anymore.

I'm guessing the 40's - 50's but hoping older!

This seller has a silk tie up for auction (see above) at a starting price of $.01 + free shipping.  I noticed the auction said there were 6 bids.  How is it possible to have 6 bids, and the price is currently at one cent?  Is this a scam?  Why are sellers doing things like this? 


I also had another experience where I bid on an item with a low price and someone outbid me several times.  There was no activitiy on this item the whole time during the auction and now sudden interest?  A friend told me it was the seller outbidding me, to try to get me to bid higher, and ultimately pay more for the item.  Can they do this?  Is this allowed by eBay? 


Someone please respond!

This is a small item, only 1 1/2", "JV" I put it on collectors weekly,  it has a few repair hand scribed #'s, but the JV SWISS 115.6.86 is original to the piece. Could a part of that # line be a year?  Regards V76IMG_4489.JPGIMG_4510.JPGIMG_4491.JPG

Promises made which were not followed up

Please help ID the maker of these 18ct gold earrings with small sapphires. They were purchased at the then Georg Jensen store on 5th Ave in NYC in the 60's. I know they sold other designer jewelry beside Georg Jensen design.  These earrings are marked 18ct Italy and with the maker's mark G with a K inside (block letters). IMG_2200.JPG Anyone have any idea?

Made in Germany Doll

Good morning-  this piece is not marked, however I am certain it can be attributed to Dan Kasoff, founder of Florenza..many of his early pieces were unsigned. I know from my research it can be verified by his son Larry Kasoff, but I cannot seem to locate any information on how to do this. I have reached out to a seller on a site ( that shall remain unnamed...I was at my wits end..) that has this information, though is unwilling to share it with me...Dan Kasoff made all sorts of whimsical pieces, laughing Buddha as well. This Devil face is quite...unique, and the metal work is BEAUTIFUL. The small stones/pastes that were not secured by prongs, ( like the remaining green stones) have been lost...but the money shot is the unmistakable series of faces. I asked a question on another board, which is (Thank you!) how I got as far as I have...  Help please, this is becoming my white whale....  Regards, V76   Sorry about the focus issues...IMG_4448.JPGIMG_4439.JPGIMG_4443.JPG

Florenza help

I picked up this sterling pin today, couldn't read the mark until I got home to loupe it. It's a PARENTI brooch (interesting history there BTW) and what I thought were glass stones are gemstones, test as amethyst, citrine, moonstone and aquamarine, I'm not sure what the rose cabochon is, possibly rose quartz ?
Anyway, I was a bit worried about the two cabochons being original while the rest are faceted. I see no evidence of them being replaced so now I think probably original.
I see by some limited research the sisters used quite a bit of moonstone and aquamarine but I'd still like some opinions if you think the cabochons are original.
Thanks for the help !

Is this brooch a knock-off?

Hello everyone


Today i made a buy for a friend of mine. He than changed his mind and wanted to cancel it so i did. Everything went good i asked the seller to cancel and he did. Got my money back as my paypal account says.


After that i wanted to buy the same item this time as a gift for my friend so tried to buy it (*same account) but when i choose paypal as the method to pay it with and try to login using the popup it show an error 70407. My account is fine cause i have the money which i got back from the cancelation and which is the same amount cause its the same item.


Tried a dozen of times but cant get it to work. Why does this happen?? Please help !


p.s. : Do i need to confirm the cancelation of the item ?The message from ebay cited  as above and there was any accept or decline option ...

         Also i found out that i cant buy anything at all not just this item.


The seller refunded $xx.xx back to your original payment method, and you don't need to do anything else.

I have finally found a nice item to sell, sadly it becomes slightly cracked by usps poor handling 50% of the time, there is no amount of bubble wrap that will keep this item from cracking, sadly the buyer doesn't know there is an easy fix available and youtube videos on how to fix it, that take 5 mins., Anyway, how do i get buyers to send me a message opposed to opening a request for return? Is there a way to manipulate the post sale page to get them corraled to sending a message and away from "return an item"  in the my ebay seciton?

I've finally been bitten by a common bug

I am beginning to see that buyers want their feedback, so I'm very much inclined to get on that bandwagon. But I want to only leave FB for those buyers who have already left me FB. Is there a way to do this quickly and easily instead of clicking on each transaction one at a time to see if they left me FB and if so what the comment was?

This happened to me yesterday. I was listing an auction and ticked the BIN option and this is what the software pre-populated for my BIN price.


It did let me correct/change it, but I felt like I was being told to pay to sell!

1 day handling on Friday Orders?

First I want to say that I am a seller too, and I hate when buyers try to wrestle a partial refund out of me because I always think it's a scam. However, I purchased a huge lot of American Girl dolls for $1,100. The guy said the dolls were in "Good to near mint condition". When I received them, 4 of them had ink marks on their faces, chunks of vinyl missing, eyelashses missing, etc. Please see photos below. When I contacted him with the photos, he refuses to work with me and says they are in good condition because they aren't missing any arms or legs. I am afraid to do a refund case because of how much money it is, and if I send them back and he claims I didn't or refuses the package or something. What can I do to resolve this? Also, can you please comment and tell me if you think these are in good to mint condition? I'm thinking maybe if he sees that they are in poor to played with condition and that's what the community thinks, maybe he will understand why he is wrong. I think it is reasonable to ask for the replacement cost for two of the heads, even though four of the heads are messed up. I will have to have all four replaced. 


Edit: I agree that it is wrong in most cases to ask for a partial refund. It makes my blood boil when people do it to me. My concern is that when I open a refund case through eBay's resolution center, what if he refuses the dolls when the arrive, or what if he says they aren't in the condition he sent them in, etc. I do not want to be out of the dolls and the money because I have never purchased a lot this large on eBay before.

Bidding & Buying question

I know little about books...googled to no avail in ref to the copy I have of this book in particular: Il Manuale di Epitteto, Preambolo del Volgarizattore.... nella traduzione di Giacomo Leopardi. There are several editions, publishers, etc., but this copy's publisher info seems to be inexistant: Editrice Academia. Printed in Milano, but no date...it's old but how old? Maybe from around 1940?


I understand it is a special printing...it says that  1000 copies were selected...from those, 990 were numbered from 1 to 990, and the remaining 10 were with Roman numerals. It also states that the volume has been stamped on double page, manually printed by Enrico Gualdoni's printing business. The first pages have a seal...not an embossed one but an attached one...sort of fused into the paper. Any help or where to look would be much appreciated. I'm attaching pics. Thank you in advance!

Booksellers discussion

Another thread had me wondering if most of you hide the cost on the label or not?

I do out of habit regardless of whether the shipping is dead on or not since I just don't want the recipient to have to even consider the amount.

That said I never make money on shipping; usually it's the cost of shipping only or a modest markup to cover supplies but not all buyers take that into consideration.

Anyway...just curious.

Do You Hide Shipping Cost or Not?

I sold a lidded metal music box to an Israeli buyer. I never use global shipping because my merchandise is usually fragile, but this one must have slipped through the cracks. I mailed it on Aug 4th and it was delivered after several attempts on the 26th. I have a 14 day return policy. The buyer sent me an email on the 26th to say the item arrived damaged. I really didn't know what to do, but I requested photographs of the box, the shipping label, the item and packing materials. Yesterday she emailed me to say that she can't upload any photos to me and asked for my personal email address, which I have no intention of giving her. Also, in a second email she claims that the hinge was attached with epoxy and that is the reason it was damaged in shipping (implying that I glued the hinge on, which I did not, and none of my 12 photos indicate a hinge repair). I really don't know where my responsibility lies here and I have no experience with international shipping. Can anyone advise me? I would appreciate it because I want to resolve this asap. Thanks.

I've bought books on ebay for years, with few problems, other than the occasional poor packaging. A book shipped in a paper envelope probably won't arrive unscathed. In the past month though, I've had three experiences with three different sellers, of buying books described as HARDCOVER, only to get paperback. Sellers were fine with making refunds, but why is this happening? One seller blamed eBay listing policies, which I don't understand. I suppose that if you list hundreds of books, it isn't possible to check the description all the time, especially if you're just copying and pasting an original description from a publisher into your listing, but you can't check the listing title? If I see HARDCOVER / TRADE CLOTH and PAPERBACK, both in the description (and you do see this), a bell goes off, but if I see HARDCOVER / TRADE CLOTH in the description AND in the big lettered listing title itself, why should I think otherwise, or have to contact a seller to make sure this is the case? Thanks.

Hi, I bought a set of ink cartridges and when I installed it in my printer, it literally blew up and spilled the ink all over inside the printer, printer head, everywhere.. so it ended up damaging the printer so it is broken now. I contacted the seller and told them what happened then they emailed me back saying that I could do a nozzle cleaning and that it would be okay.. It was almost like they were trying to avoid the issue. They asked for pictures and I send it to them proving that their product did this to my printer. They danced around it and then would not answer me so I told them that I would report them to ebay and give a negative feedback if they would not get back to me on this. Finally they emailed saying " You could start by printing a pre-paid label to return." I told them, how do you expect me to print when your ink cartridge broke my printer and that I want a refund and the cost of repairing my printer. They have not answered for 3 days so I am wondering if there is a way to force them to refund me and is there a way that I can report them to ebay and request that they pay for the repair? I have never encoutered a seller like this and have never given a bad feedback or recived a bad feedback so I am wondering what is the best way to deal with this? Thank you

not paying

I have an item up as "Buy it now" or "Make an Offer".  For the first time ever I've had several people interested and I'm not sure wht's allowed by ebay. I looked through the rules and Q&A's but haven't seen the answer.


The first person made an offer and I made a counter offer. Ebay states that they have 48 hours to respond before the counter offer expires.


Then today, someone made me an offer and I made a counter offer to them.I haven't heard back from them yet.


Now I wonder if I was supposed to wait the 48 hours for the first person to answer (or not, they don't usually bother). Or, is it whoever accepts my counter offer first gets it.


I'm assuming that's the way it is because if it wasn't, ebay would disable the, "Make an offer" button until the time limit is reached for the first offer.


Thanks for any insight you have on this.

So i'm selling a faulty HTC one m8, some guy messaged asking how long i've used it, basically told him just a few weeks. My buy now price is 114, he then replied with the following message:


Am ready to pay £400 GBP for this item and £5 GBP for the postage via royal mail next day delivery.send me your paypal email to my email (*****@hotmail.com)or (****** at hotmail.com) please include the item number,and i will send the payment through ebay family and friends so no fee will be removed..
