This tray is about 10 inches long and 6 1/4 inches wide. Part of the gold and the white enamel decoration is raised. Unmarked. Any ideas of origin?

There was a matching broken chocolate pot in a different auction box lot that I did not bid on. It was also not marked.

My first guess would be that this hat was a Freemasonry hat, would that be accurate? 

 

Does anyone know any specifics about where/when/why it might have been used.

It is stamped 925 and is a goldtone color. How do you describe that?

Also, what should I call the stones? He doesn;t  know if they are real amethyst.

2014 Fall Seller Update discussion

I have had this necklace for along time. It was in a storage unit that was recently emptied out and I cannot find anything about it as it is unmarked except for the word sterling located on the back of one of the kachinas legs. Can someone try to give me some information as to which kachina it is, if it is a fake or who would have made it and what it might be worth. Any help would be appreciated.

Half an hour to Wednesday, so close enough.  Extra points for chocolate.  Please keep the pictures smallish so they'll load faster, and no live auctions please.

 

Those who did the Christmas in August thingie may recognize the coral beads.  I just restrung them.  The other necklace was a pair of tinfoil gold earrings that I melted in disgust.  Kept the pearl loop things and made a necklace out of them and a cheap freshwater bracelet.

I have a necklace with a very large pendant that looks like amber (to my very untrained eye). It was hard to photograph the beauty of it but it's semi see thru, with bubbles, "chunks of stuff" and bits of glitter or shimmer. Do you guys have any suggestions on photographing this? The back is flat and & it's a "rounded teardrop". I apologize for my lack of correct terminology on this. Do you guys think this is amber or something else? Maybe glass? Are there any tests to check what it is? Please let me know if you need additional pictures or information from me. Thanks in advance for your time, help, and expertise!

This is a semi long story so please bear with me-

 

I just received a negative feedback. The buyer had opened a case previously, due to I accidentally sent him the wrong part for his order. Once the case was opened I immediately shipped the correct part, trusting that he would send me the incorrect part back once he received the correct part. I offered to pay for shipping cost for him shipping the wrong part back to me and he was to send me a message once it was shipped with the total amount due for the shipping fee.

 

During the case, he sent a rude message out of no where saying 'what are you talking about, we already discussed this and you said you were sending me the other part'. I didn't know why he sent this message, since I hadn't sent him anymore messages other than the message explaining I would be sending out the correct part that day and reimbursing his shipping once he gave me a total. So I messaged him back and told him I thought he may be confused about something since i hadn't sent any other messages.

 

So he received the part and I messaged him several times after the fact asking for the return shipping price. He never responded and the case auto closed. I just went ahead and sent him a check for $100 since the buyer had spoken with Craig on the phone and stated he preferred a check due to he doesn't know much about PayPal, and I think he thought it would be a hassle to get the funds from PayPal.

 

Fast forward to today. I receive a text on my phone from the buyer stating he never received any money for the shipping charge so I logged into eBay and see he left a neg. on my account. I was shocked! I sent a check, and I hadn't heard from this buyer so I assumed he received the check and all was good.

 

So I called the buyer and he said he didn't receive the check and as we started talking he tells me he sent numerous messages through the case stating the shipping fee, and that someone named Stephanie had sent him a message during the case and she contradicted what I was saying so he thought we may not be 'straight up'. 

 

Here is the message he said he received (he copied the message from eBay and emailed it to me)

 

 

I will send my messages from oldest to most recent that are of importance to our phone conversation.

 

Hello Christa,

 

Below is a copy of the seller response in-between our conversations that had me questioning what was going on:

 

Hi Edited to protect buyer

The seller has responded to you and offered another solution to solve this issue.

Seller's message:
"Hi item has already been posted. I apologise for the delay but I had a death in the family and I had to go Ireland for the funeral. Thanks Stephanie"

 

 

 

This message was sent to the buyer through eBay messages and it has all of my info, including the transaction details and photo of the item just like it came from me, but this message is NOT in the resolution center messages if you go directly there and the message was not sent by me or anyone here since i am the only person who has access to our eBay account here.

 

The buyer stated he never went to the actual resolution center, he did everything through his email from messages sent to him from eBay, and the message above was sent from eBay to him, so he thought something wasn't right with our company since he was receiving conflicting messages. 

 

The buyer stated the reason he left the negative feedback was due to the conflicting messages he thought I wasn't going to pay the return shipping since he never received the check and he sent several messages back to me through the resolution center (using the emails sent to him by eBay). Here's the kicker- the messages the buyer sent never reached the resolution center and the messages are no where in the resolution center messages and I never received any messages from the buyer concerning the return shipping. 

 

I believe that somehow through a 'glitch' this buyer was receiving messages from another buyer/seller case and his messages to me were also going to the other seller since the messages are not in our case and I never received any messages from him. So now I have a negative feedback since the buyer was receiving conflicting information from me and this Stephanie person, and since I wasn't responding to his messages since I wasn't receiving the messages and neither was the 'case' in the resolution center. His messages aren't there but he sent me copies of his messages that he had in his email so he did send them, they just went to someone else's case. 

 

The buyer has stated he will revise the feedback but this has me worried. What if this happens again? I know I already have the defect from the case being opened but I have worked hard to maintain my feedback. Also, now I will have to air a neg until the guy receives a new check because I don't feel right having him revise the feedback before he gets his money reimbursed.

 

The negative wouldn't have ever happened if the buyer's messages would have been posted in the resolution center and if the buyer hadn't received the message from the Stephanie person which caused the buyer to doubt what I was saying.

 

Once the buyer text me today I called him and we spoke on the phone for about 30 min total. He is not a scammer, I don't believe he is lying, all he wants is the return shipping reimbursed and he now knows that we are a legitimate company and that the message he received from 'Stephanie' wasn't from our company so he seems good with everything. But a buyer shouldn't be made to feel as though they are dealing with a scammer when the seller (me) does everything ALWAYS to make my buyers happy. I sent him $100 just for the mistake, and he told me today the return shipping was only $26 so he's coming out $74 for his trouble. I want my buyers to be happy but how can I make sure of this when glitches such as this happen?

 

Oh and I checked and the buyer never cashed the check I sent so he isn't lying about the check. I put a stop payment on the 1st check and put another in the mail today. I tried to get him to just accept a PayPal partial refund but he absolutely would not, he wants a check. 

 

What do you guys think about this? Has anyone else here ever had a case intertwined with another seller's case like this? 

 

Thanks, Christa

Just had my Baby (1999 Toyota Corolla) in for her 90,000 mile check up, where they go over her from stem to stern, and she passed with flying colors....  It was just time for a new battery and I knew that going in ahead....

 

This has been absolutely the best little car...  It runs so quiet that standing next to it while it's idling, if you put your hand on the hood, you can't even feel any vibration.

 

I got her new, and have had to do very little except for routine maintanence stuff....  but, then, I do baby her a lot.

 

They did warn me to make sure that I'm driving it enough, to keep everything properly running..... 

 

I do love that little car, and expect her to be my last.

So....   I finally got the new computer almost all up and running.....

 

One of the problems I had had before was I couldn't get the "streaming" on line shows....  I naturally assumed it was because of conflict between the upgraded browser and the old XP.

 

So....  in anticipation of my show last night...  I was devistated to get the same error message.

 

Contacted Microsoft Support and they spent over 3 hours, going over the system, and finally determined that it was a Verizon issue, probably having to do with fios.

 

They took a really long time getting fios here, and I'd been planning to check into it anyway....  so just finished ordering th upgrade...  Supposedly other than the purchase of the router, it won't affect my monthly bill...

 

Anybody else  have fios experience?

 

Just wondering....

My wife and I were hoping someone in the EBay community could tell us what this porcelain piece was used for / what it is?

 

It is approx 3" tall and 4" diameter it has brass clasp and edge treatments and when opened it appears the lid and bottom were at one time lined with silk. The floral design has some enameling.

 

Any help would be great and we appreciate all answers.

Needing your opinions on the hem stitching of this vintage dress. It looks pretty rugged, do you think it could be original or has someone done this after market. I will post a pic of the sleeve stitching and the hem for comparison. The length of the dress from shoulder to hem is 41 inches. It seems like the length is appropriate but the stitching is questionable. Will it affect value..if any? TIA!

hi everybody. i just found these three silver gelatin prints in a thrift store. i thought they were just interesting enough (and inexpensive enough) that i'd post them to a couple of forums and see if anybody recognizes them. each of them was cropped and there's no marks on the backsides. they're framed in simple old inexpensive frames under glass and matted. i would guess the frames are from the 50s maybe. they each measure 8" x 10" and you can see on the backsides they once had glue brushed on them but are now taped to the matting. so, i'm assuming these aren't the original frames or presentations. any help or suggestions for identifying them would be greatly appreciated...thanks

Here goes.  I thought this set might have possibilities because of the shape and color of the stones, the pin attachment and the ear clip backs.   I also saw a few pieces with similar pronged cups.   It has a sunken center tier.  I've searched brooches, earrings and sets on the D & E site and see some similar but none exact, so I'd appreciate your expertise.  Either way, I'm sure I'll learn something new, so come at me, sisters :smileyvery-happy:.

Hello!  I have multiple antique hay baling tools from the farm I grew up on in Iowa.  This one has me a bit stumped.  I think it's called a Tying Rebar.  Wood handle is about 3 1/4 inches long.  The hook on the end rotates around and I think it was used to tie/twist either twine or wire on a hay bale.  These are fairly scarce and I can't find much info at all.  I can't read the entire company name  "...eve Bag Corp. Chicago Pated. 1885? 6 4 C".

 

Can anyone tell me what company this was in Chicago?  The word "Bag" may be wrong.  And is my terminology correct?  Tying rebar?

 

Thank you so much!!!

I found this old Chinese Vase at an estate sale of an antique dealer.....I don't know anything about Asian Pottery and I was hoping to get more information?  It does have some signature signs on the bottom. The pottery is rather heavy. Thank you so much for any information at all.  It measures about 6 inches tall - decorated with flowers, birds and a dragonfly.

I have a Cameo brooch I've identified as being made by the A L Lindroth Co, but not sure if it's Edwardian or Victorian. I don't normally deal with jewelry, so any key word maybe? :-)

I hope I have chosen the right category. I can't figure out how to add more specifics to my listings. I used to have an option to switch from quick and easy listing to a more advanced listing page. I don't see it anymore. I have a basic store if that makes a difference. Screenshot of the page I use for listing my items. I have been trying to download turbo lister, but I keep getting an error message that there is an error reading the setup initialization file. Suggestions & help much appreciated! Thank you!

This dresser box is made of one piece of wood and it has a small pinhole in front which disguises the lock.  I guess the idea is to suggest that it is a solid piece and there's no opening. Of course that's naieve since it does have hinges at the back. I think the lock might be hand made. But really what I want to know is if there's a name for this kind of lock and of course anything else about the piece that would help me describe it.  Thanks for any suggestions. (I don't know if I'm posting in the right place since the boards have changed so much, so if I'm in the wrong place, I would appreciate being told.)  CheersDSCN3835.jpgDSCN3837.jpgDSCN3838.jpgDSCN3839.jpgDSCN3842.jpg

One day before the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, four known terrorists were apprehended on the southern border, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Megyn Kelly Wednesday night. Worse yet, Breitbart said, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson was unable to say whether or not terrorists had illegally entered the country.

"There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist organizations in the Middle East,” Chaffetz told Kelly. But Johnson was unable to tell Chaffetz if any terrorists had crossed the border.

"Sitting here right now, no specific case comes to mind,” Johnson told Chaffetz. “That doesn’t mean there is none.”

“Siting here right now, none comes to mind, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t one," he later added. "Nor does that mean there is no investigation of one, either.”

Chaffetz then informed Johnson of the individuals caught on September 10 and asked if he was aware of the situation. Johnson replied, saying, "I’ve heard reports to that effect. I don’t know the accuracy of the reports or how much credence to give them, but I’ve heard reports to that effect.”

“I do agree with you that the challenge of those coming from countries other than Mexico particularly into the Rio Grande Valley sector [in Texas] is one I’m very concerned about," Johnson added. "It’s something I’ve been concerned about since I took office in January.”

Johnson, however, approved exemptions that would allow immigrants who provided “limited material support” to terrorists into the country in February. Secretary of State John Kerry also approved the exemptions, which the administration said at the time were reasonable.

According to an “internal” DHS document, the U.S. has apprehended individuals from 143 different countries trying to enter the country illegally. Among those are 13 individuals from Syria, six from Iraq, and four from Iran. All three countries have been identified as having ties to terrorism.

Chaffetz also said that while 466,000 illegal aliens have been apprehended in fiscal year 2014, an estimated 157,012 have gotten away and 142,630 were identified as “turn-backs.” He also said there were over a million more sensor "hits" on the border this year than last, but acknowledged that animals may have contributed, providing false positive hits.

Prior to the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, a document released by the Texas Department of Public Safety warned that ISIS is actively encouraging supporters to take advantage of the porous border to engage in terror attacks against U.S. citizens. Other reports suggested ISIS militants were looking to enter the country near Juarez, across the border from El Paso.

On Monday, Sheriff Gary Painter of Midland County, Texas, said he believes some ISIS terrorists may have already crossed the border. He also told Elizabeth Hassebeck that "we have found copies, or people along the border, have found Muslim clothing, they have found Quran books that are laying on the side of the trail."

Liberals, meanwhile, have downplayed the reports, claiming they are nothing more than attempts to attack Obama on his weak immigration policies. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, for example, claimed there's "a longstanding history in this country of projecting whatever fears we have onto the border."

I called paypal, they said there are no limits on my account etc. They did tell me to send a screen shot and someone would take a look and get back to me. I cannot get this pop up to stop showing up. I can click the X to get rid of it but as soon I go back to the summary page it pops up again. When I click on it, it says there are no limits.

Selling discussion

I've been selling on eBay since 07, I believe.  Recently I have seen tons of sellers complaining they have been banned for selling "branded items".  Can someone tell me or link me to what branded items are?  I'm looking to move in a few months so I'm going to be selling all my stuff (mostly used games, books, movies, electronics, clothes, etc.).  I just want to make sure I don't violate the rules early and get stuck selling this elsewhere or taking it with me.  For example, I have some American Eagle, Abercrombie, and Ralph Lauren Polo clothing items I'd like to list as they are lightly used or unworn - Is this what eBay means by branded items?  

 

Are there other items that are often removed as branded?  Are there any key-words I should avoid that might mislead a customer or set off some eBay alarm?  As a low-volume seller it's sometimes hard to keep up with all the eBay policy changes that occur.  It's also nice to have reassuring feedback that I'm doing things correctly.  I've worked hard to slowly build this feedback so I'm not interested in losing it :smileytongue:  Thanks ahead of time :smileyhappy:

Selling discussion

This drives me crazy. I'm an experienced small volume postcard dealer. I've been around the block a few times.
But I can't tell anymore how much to charge Canadien customers. USPS says one thing, EBAY shipping says
another, I can't be shipping a $5 postcard for $6. This is crazy. I didn't make a mistake - 1ounce thick envelope.
I ended up mailing the guy the postcard inside of a greeting card for $1.15 with a note and hoping he doesn't get too mad
at paying me a buck too much for postage.

The picture is the USPS website stitched on top, the bottom is the EBAY shipping page where I had a heart attack.

I am making custom tiered serving trays using name brand china.  I just had a tray removed from another site by Homer Laughlin's legal team saying that Fiesta is a trademark and can't be used.  I didn't use Fiesta china and the word never appeared in my title, description or tags.  I am selling Homer Laughlin's Golden Wheat tid bit trays.  I contacted their legal rep to see what is going on but my question is this.  Do I have the right to use plates that I own to make a new use for them and sell them using the plates manufacturer's name and pattern name?  AFAIK, HLC never made a tid bit tray from Golden Wheat.  Whether they did with Fiesta is not relevent since I wasn't selling Fiesta. 

 

I see that Homer Laughlin isn't a Vero member so can I expect to be safe here?  Do I have rights under the Fair Act Doctrine to repurpose, as an artist, china that I own and sell it? 

Selling discussion

I have two issues that have cropped up in the past few days.

 

1.) I research completed auctions and BINs extensively, to see what completed prices are, including postage. Now, when I look at completed listings, they no longer show the postage. All I see is >>>

Shipping:
Will ship to United States. Read item description or contact seller for shipping options. |See Details
 
That's no use whatsoever. I need the full historical data. Some people still charge diddly for an item and out the nose for postage. I try to stay in the same range of price + shipping to set my BINs. 
 
I've held off listing in hopes that the completed shipping costs will start showing up again. I'm hesitant to price without it. 
 
2.) I'm having people contact me left and right asking if I ship internationally, and saying they can't see my shipping charges. I've had inquiries from buyers on .ca, .fr, .de and .br.     A friend tried to change his settings and said he could see my international prices, but he was on .com.  Is anyone else reporting problems with international shipping showing?  I usually run 50-60% international sales.  In the past two weeks, my international sales have absolutely tanked, and are only running about 15%. 
 
3.) Am I nuts? I'm in Atlanta. I use free shipping.   Shipping to California and Hawaii are the most expensive possible scenarios for me. So how come 80% of my sales are suddenly from ONLY those two states? (The remainder have mostly been the dribble of international sales.) I mean coincidences do happen, but it's been very consistent for the past ten days. 
 
Something wierd is going on here. 
 
If someone could give my shipping a look and see if the international is coming up normally, I would sure appreciate it.

I received an item I purchased for a Christmas present for my daughter. it was wrapped poorly.. very poorly and the item is damaged. I have of course emailed the seller who first said she would partially refund the money. I told her I would like to send it back and get a full refund as the item was no useless to me! she said it was useless to her as it came from her exs mother and there was a nasty break up.. yada yada ...I don't care. She said I could keep any of the pieces I wanted and would refund 20.00 of the 30.00 I spent! what do I do? is there recourse? Thanks Katie

Selling discussion

I was just contacted by a potential buyer asking why shipping was so high on an item.   When they (or I) enter their zip code into the shipping calculator, the quote is $34.30.  Yet if I go directly to the USPS website and enter all of the exact same information, the price is only $18.78 with the online discount ($34.30 is the non-discounted price).  I always assumed that I was getting the online discount through eBay...  Is this not the case??  I have always purchased my postage using the tools provided by eBay and Paypal.  Now 'm wondering if I should be doing things differently!

Selling question

I'm trying to buy multiple items from a seller who offers discounted shipping on additional items, but doesn't have an "add to cart" option available.  ("Buy now" only.)

 

The seller instructed me to commit to buy; then they would combine all the items, adjust the shipping and send an invoice.

 

There are three options to buy: 1. Pay with PayPal, 2, Commit to Buy with credit card, and 3. Commit to Buy with money order or bank transfer.

 

Because the seller is based abroad and credit card companies charge for international transactions and service fees for the exchange, I would prefer to pay with PayPal.  But obviously I don't want to transfer the money now and thus pay extra shipping.

 

Can I commit to buy with a credit card and later use PayPal?  Is there a way to commit to buy with the PayPal option?

Bidding & Buying question

Hello, I'm back again hoping for some more great advice!  The winning bidder on the following item paid and then shortly after contacted me saying they did not realize it was just the case for the game, rather than the complete game.  (Despite being listed in the Cases, Covers, and Bags section, stating "Case ONLY", and "No Game").  

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Used-Thief-Case-ONLY-for-Xbox-One-XB1-No-Game-Free-Shipping-/151408780225?

 

What is the best way to handle this?  How can I cancel the item so that it doesn't hurt my ratings and get all my fees back?  I have not yet purchased shipping so that won't be an issue.  Also, is there anything else I can do to clear up my listing to prevent this situation in the future?

Selling discussion

I unwittingly posted this in the "ask a question" portion of the boards... Why does eBay have to make everything so convoluted? Anyways...   I am a small, new seller, specializing in vintage jewelry. A month ago a buyer opened a case against me for SNAD, and after I said I would refund for return, the buyer never responded. They opened the case because the item didn't "seem as bright colored" and were smaller than the buyer thought, even though I put measurements in my description, said there was some discoloration in the gold tone, and a disclaimer about my items being vintage and most have an older looking patina. Fine, buyer didn't like them, I offer returns. 

 

I didn't hear anything for a month, and the case was closed. I thought that after a month of being open, if the buyer made no action to return, the case would automatically close in my favor. How wrong I am! I now have a defect even though the case is closed. Is there any way to get this defect removed? I have only been selling on ebay since July, and I am extremely frustrated at the way things are going, with ebays policy, and with my sales which for my first month were awesome, and now are barely existent. Thanks for listening to my rant!

Selling discussion

Hi, like subject says.

Torch : after many messages with seller, the last one is:

 

Dear zg-drazen,

i hope you can send the item back for me and when i get the item i will pay for the shipping fee of the stamp .and i will resend your a new replace that ok

- superal2012       ...................... here is seller
 
Yesterday I send back broken torch and pay shipping to China but no answer from seller so I think that is bye, bye story.
In my inbox messages of converstion with this seller disappeared, ID don't work so I can't open case etc...
 
 
 
seller: behapy-day
Batteries: Another case with 4 batteries. Can you imagine that 4 of 4 are bad?
After message about bad batteries seller make offer about returns of half amount, then 60%, 70% and no answer after that.
Normally can't open case becuse time is passed and ID can't be accepted.
 
Problem is that no option to claim some sellers to eBay after some short period after shipping at all.
If your article ID is not found you can open case. This period is very usable for black sellers (cheaters) because in this period are very fast in replaying messages and after that disapeared.
 
Conclusion:
1. On my opinion, somewhere on  eBay must be email address for support about situation like this. Now, if you go out of period for claims you article ID is useless and forget about support and there is a lagoon for cheaters.
2. For all buyers, don't be naive. After any irregularity make case and forget on messaging one to one.
 
 
 
Regards 
 
 
 

Shipping & Returns question

For four days I have had one bidder on a boat I am selling. He hit my reserve on his first bid of $2000.00. I emailed him in case he had any questions as soon as I saw the boat was going to sell. He never responded. This morning I find out he was able to cancel his bid and now I have no bids on my item and the auction is over tomorrow. Why am I paying Ebay for not being an auction site?

Hi There, We sent a package of breaking bad air fresheners to an International Customer on July 10 to San Paulo, Brazil.

It made it as far as NY.

Customer has not received, and USPS has stated it is in customs, and they can hold it for as long as they want. 

Customer has a case submitted, and I have informed her of what the USPS has told me. 

 

 

What should we do now? Take a loss, and refund in full? It's been 68 days since it has been acknowledge into the USPS system. :smileysad: 

Any advice would be much appreciated.TIA! :smileyhappy:

Selling question

Hello Friends, 

 

I'm from Sri Lanka, where the inward payments cannot be done by using paypal. Because according to my country's law, it's not allowed. So when I read eBay payment policies, It has been clearly mentioned that Skrill also can be used as a payment option. But when I tried to add skrill as a payment option, I couldn't do it. I searched the whole site, but couldn't find a way to do it. Even called the eBay customer support center , based in CA, USA. But couldn't contact them as the estimated waiting time was 168 minutes(Crazy right?).

 

So I have sold one item, But I'm not a postion to get the money from the buyer. Please that's why finally I came to the community to ask this question. I believe you all can solve this. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Payments question

NOTE TO BLUES:  this is ONLY related to the . please read very carefully and very thoroughly or you will misinterpret this post (it is not an issue where the seller does not understand why his daily count is off).  thank you  kindly.

 

1. +Mr. Boehm clearly in his memo said that ebay would take care of the tracking discrepancy which occured on 9/3/14  the glitch day wherein paypal tracking did NOT upload into ebay.  to date this has not been handled in any way, shape or form.

 

2.Jeff told me to phone CS which i did: twice  (this resulted in OVER 7.5 hours of time being passed around and NO ONE had a clue how to fix this per the Boehm memo...they simply do not know who the right person is to fix the discrepancy where i have 14 packages that do now show as uploaded in a timely fashion and yet paypal can vouch and say i did upload them.  There are hundreds of sellers with this exactsame: PAYPAL VERIFIED issue and some of them will fall well below the 90% needed for upload tracking because of this ebay glitch. There is no way a seller can upload the tracking numbers BECAUSE the sellers shipped very quickly and we did not even know ebay had this glitch problem.

 

3.  Neither ebay nor paypal has the tracking numbers on the receipts which is part of the KNOWN ISSUE that mr. boehm speaks of below in the boehm memo quoted.

 

4.  ebay needs to have a direct contact person to take these calls so as not to continue to waste both the seller's time and all of the incorrect CS people.  having people phone cs when one fully knows that cs hasn't a clue who the right department is, is very unprofessional and very costly.

 

5. please find out who this person is and give us a direct email to contact, or better still have that person come on this board and say hi: i am here to help with this issue.

 

Thanks most kindly for your help.

 

example of problem:

 

Known issues:

 

1. there is a verifiable difference in the count for 9/3/14 glitch day. 

a.  seller usually has 99.8-100% tracking upload and tracking verified by usps.

b. discrepancy is 14 packages...veriable in the difference between current package transaction and tracking uploaded.  Obviously, the tracking uploaded is 14 less than number of transactions.

 

2. it is impossible to purchase a package from ebay or paypal using USPS wherein there is no tracking number.  tracking numbers ALWAYS come with packages.  on this particular day, not all packages came with a tracking number on the paid receipt due to the issue ebay was having.  this is an ebay issue as mentioned by mr. boehm.

2.a further to the above, paypal has an open ticket listing the sellers who phoned in to tell them that their tracking was not uploading into ebay

 

3. sellers are waiting for this discrepancy to be rectified.  so far, nothing has happened.  there is no who, when how in the memo.  this leaves great pause for concern.

 

thank you so much.

I have a buyer who wants to return a bra she received 12 days ago (within the 14 day return window), but the bra was sold new with tags & the buyer has removed the tags & worn the bra. There's nothing wrong with the bra other than she said she needs more support. Am I obligated to give her a full refund when I sold the bra new with tags & it's now been worn & the tags obviously removed?
