I think this make me a powerseller? However I don't think other people will notice it since it doens't show elsewhere in the feedback screen. Is that only for internal reference only? Thanks.

Looking these up for a friend.  These seem to be the same pattern, but the plate is Hutschenreuther and cream pitcher is Made in France with a house logo and name (can't read) in bottom half of house.  Appreciate any help on this maker or name of pattern.  

Have no idea what the Mabel Kelly 1981 is on the bottom. The "house" just doesn't appear to be a mold mark! Just doesn't make sense to me.  Thanks for any info!

Help with artist identification

This little angel fish measures about 2 5/8" tall, 2 3/8 inches long and 1 1/8 inches wide at the base. He is turquoise and unmarked. I have seen the same shape listed as Shawnee on ebay, but in my Shawnee book he is not pictured. There is an angelfish in the book, but his mouth is droopy and quite different. I haven't been able to find this fish anywhere else on the internet. I've done searches for vintage pottery fish/ angelfish. My Shawnee book is dated 1994, so maybe he is in a newer book? Does anyone recognize this fishy? Thanks for the help!

A buyer won the bid for an iMac I was selling. He is having trouble getting the money together to pay. He says he is having trouble with Pay Pal (my preference to receive payment), and wants to possibly send payment through USPS. He doesn't say whether this would be cash, check or what. Can I tell him no I want PayPal or nothing? Then end this transaction and relist my item. Item #  251955342290. The auction ended on 5/17.

Is Ebay holding my money?

Hi, this bracelet is kind of springy, so it widens to open, and then can latch onto one of the three holes. It is very thin, lightweight, and quite small with inner circumference of about 5 7/8 inches on the biggest setting.  The engraving is just on the front half, the back half is plain.

 

What time period do you think it is from?  Victorian, or later, like the 40s?  Anyone recognize the mark?  I checked RCJ under the Ms and Bs, but didn't see it.  The only MB I saw was Boucher, and this doesn't look like that style at all to me.

 

Thanks!

Hello again! I tried this board in the past, but sadly, no one replied! Thought I'd try again with this piece. It belongs to a friend who said it was her grandmother's from the 1840's? I hope to have more pics later, but for now, hope these will do. :smileyhappy: The cameos are shell, but my question is about the quality? They aren't as detailed as most antique cameos. Is this a problem if I re-sell? And the clasp is stamped 806. Doesn't show in these pics, but I have seen it clearly. She was told that is a "date stamp", but I can find no info on this, other than it MIGHT be Italian? Also the metal must be silver/vermeil? Is this a "book chain" link?
I thank you for any help or information! :smileyhappy:

Ok, had to share this wonderful exotic lizard pin. I believe it dates from the 1900's based on research about the "tube hinge" pinback? Am I right? :smileyhappy: The rhinestones have a slightly blue tinge. Could they be another gem? White Shapphire? 
And it seems to have some marvelous Tribal designs, as if it were African or Egyptian? The metal seems to test for 10kt gold. I do have a jeweler I'd like to show it to, but couldn't resist hearing what the "experts" here had to say! :smileyhappy: It's a small pin; 2 3/4" x 1/2" Thank you again!!

I have looked through all of my books and researched the net and cannot find a thing.  All of the clothing seems to be original and he is wearing a pin that reads "Smilin' Jack".  In my research, I did find he was a cartoon character from the 1930's through the 70's.  I cannot find where a doll was ever made for the series.  The doll is composition and in pretty good shape (other than stringing undone and missing a leg).  It is jointed at the shoulder and hips with a 1 piece head and torso.  It is about 15" tall.  Maybe this was an advertising doll??  Any help is grealy appreciated!!  Thank you for taking a look! :-)

Thanks to Pantone's "Color of the Year," I'm going to call the enamel color on this brooch Marsala :smileyhappy:.  It's well-made and thickly gold-plated.  Gives me a 50's vibe.  I can't read nor recognize the mark.  It's possibly french because there's an accent over the "e."  I took the pic through a magnifying glass so that's the best I can do.  Can't blame you if you can't make it out either, but I wouldn't be doing my due diligence if I didn't try.  Oh, and what type of flower do you think it is?  Thanks if you can help and thanks if you can't!

I am assuming this is for a watch. The  chain o the band is to attach watch so it does not get lost. The band stretches and as seen in the photos the top area moves when pinched ...possible for an oval watch if need be or something maybe a locket? Hoping others have directional help and/or known what this is called to help me with additional searching.

Hi All you RL experts,

 

I was lucky to find this hanging in the men's section of the Goodwill I was thrifting. I understand that the kids line used to be green label; at least I think I understand. 

 

Can anyone date this for me and perhaps tell me what line it came from?

Is this Laurel Burch?  I'm not too familiar with her jewelry other than having handled some of her enameled earrings.  I did see that she had charm bracelets and necklaces (some with cats and bead dangles) but I've never seen anything like this.  The other cat figures are glass!  Has anyone seen this?  The only mark I can find is 925 on the lobster claw clasp.  I know it doesn't mean a lot, but the owner also sold me a pair of Laurel Burch Fat Cat earrings.  There is a "fat cat" on the bracelet, too.brclbr2

Hello P&G forums, I see tons of cut glass and this one caught my eye. I would like to properly ID it before listing if possible. Is this ABP glass? It doesn't have the sawtooth edge that I usually see. I really wish there was a makers mark, but sadly there are only some numbers. I would like help with the age/pattern/maker if possible. Thanks

Hi all!  I recently picked this up at an estate auction.  I have no idea of it's age or the maker of the item.  It is not marked at all on the base.  The floral shaped top if a thick amber glass; the base is brass.  It is 6 1/2" tall (base to top) and 6 1/4" across (top).  Ideas?  TIA...010 (814x1024).jpg

Hi,

 

I just received an email from one of my customers.  She had purchased a book from me, she received the package today.  However, the package was recieved open and the contents (book) was missing.  The post office did stamp it .  Her message to me "I received the yellow envelope with no book the package was damage and the envelope state received without contents"  she also provided a photo of the envelope.

 

 

 

This is the first time this has happened to me.  Not sure how to handle.  My postman picks up my mail at my house, if the package was opened or had no contents I'm 100% sure he would have mentioned it to me. 

Any advise how to handle this?  If I refund her money, I lose both the cost of the item and shipping. I want to resolve this amicably.  Please help.

Hope there is someone who can explain why I can't list the items? 'Create your listing' form is absolutely uselles - I'm in Croatia, but the service does not offer anything else but the USA in Shipping destination Service, so nowhere to find the way how to change the location - from the USA to Croatia, and put the right Shipping method!? This is totally confusing with the lack of all necessery options!

Even if I got through, it keeps showing on a Preview that my location is the United States!?!

I found this old watch. You can't see the face the back is rusty. the only thing that distinguishes this watch for I.D. is the Offset Crown/stem Stainless steel/silver? Octagon face bezel. I hit it with Wd-40 and the back crumbledd off. The inside is showing some brass and innerworkings with several small screws. I'm trying to clean it up the best i can but not too hopeful on this.  The pic shows it kind of being oval in shape but it's not. it's circular Any idea on this?  Thanks

I am looking for input on identifying the actual letters used in this seal or its original paper wrapper. Due to their elaborate nature the opinions so far have differed.

 

The wrapping paper, which I've provided two 180 degree opposing views, shows how the the seal's impression will actual appear while looking directly at the seal face on provides a horizontally reversed image of how it will actually appear.

Didn't receive your item

I ordered a few items on 4/27 for an wedding on 5/16.   The main item that I bid on and won is now not availlable.  I have told the seller to cancel my order as the event is over and the main item, the bride and groom, they cannot find.  I have asked over and over again to cancel the entire order as the event is over and the main item has been lost or resold, after I was the high bidder. 

 

I got a message that they are sending me the items when I told them - cancel my order and send me a refund.

 

Feeling really, realy, frustrated

Asking eBay to step in

Hello again! I can't seem to stay away! I am confindent I'll get accurate "expert" opinions from you! This time I have acquired what I think is an Antique/Vingate Cannetille Filigree Elephant. He is marvelous and finely wired. Bright Enamel accents and toes. 
Bale is marked SILVER. Does that help date it? It appears to have a gold wash? I love the chain. Have included a photo of the original box if that helps. Is it Turkish? Chinese? Old new? I haven't found anything similar! Thank you again!!

Account restriction and suspension

Hi all...  I recently purchased this german shephard figurine at an estate sale.  I'm listing it as brass, bronze, metal (?) because I truly am unsure which it is.  Can anyone tell just by looking at the photos?  Also, there is a "J.B. 2915" embossed on the bottom.  Does anyone have any idea what that stands for?  Thanks so much in advance.

eBay Motors Purchase Invoice # VPP-508309614772

 

Above is the number given me to purchase a vehicle using Ebay as a mediator. I found a vehicle but the seller is in another country and has this vehicle there that cannot be used there. He is selling to me but the Ebay Motor purchase want a deposit of 1,000 dollars with an individual from you folks to hold the money till the car arrives. The above invoice number I am giving you to see if this is a legitimate purchase number. There is just to many variables here to trust without verification from a trusted ebay source. Thanks. Ralph

I am looking for any information of this 13/16" wide tin button. The back references a patent number; however, it can't be made out.

 

My first thought was "Victory" as in World War II's "V for Victory"; however, the font seems a little more fancy than the normal type used for WWII.

 

My second thought was a brand name.

Does this look like ivory?

I've been selling on Ebay for over 10 years and have never seen buyers abuse Ebay returns as they do now. This buyer purchased a skirt and as soon it was delivered, she purchased a second one like it but in a different color. She didn't leave FB so I assumed she loved it otherwise she won't purchase another.  I do offer a 14 day return policy, one month later she sends me a message saying she wants to return the first skirt. I told her I'm sorry but it's past the 14 day return window. She immediately opened a "defective item" case claiming that the "border of the skirt looks odd". I responded asking her why is it after one month she noticed the skirt looked odd and why did she purchase a second one just like it. She said she was on vacation for a month. She then threatens that she will return the second one too!!! Immediately, she drops another claim on me for the second skirt claiming "it's just too loose". She also is a seller and has a 97% seller's rating and does not accept returns in her store. I wish buyers would stop using our stores like rental shops, they just buy clothes, use it, and then return for free with Ebay's new easy return policy. Overall I've been hearing quite a few hard to believe stories lately from buyers, just needed to vent!! :smileysad:

buyer abuses ebay returns

A buyer left me negative feedback after they asked me a question about the item they had mistakenly bought from me. They stated in the feedback comment that I gave them an attitude, where I did not... and yet I can not have it removed unless the buyer agrees to retract it... How is this allowed to happen? My feedback up till that point and my buyers all praise me and my communication with them.. even the ones who return items, mistakenly bought other items or found something wrong with their item leave me good feedback because I work with them and make sure they leave my services happy and satisfied.. I always put forth 100% help and understanding with my customers. 

 

Why and how can someone who made a mistake with an impulse buy from one of my auctions be able to get away with such lies and falsehoods? 

 

The item was a promotion poster for video gaming items.. the buyer thought they were purchasing the items and was upset to find out that they were only receiving the poster.. this could have all been avoided if they read the description of the auction, let alone the Title of the auction before they jumped the gun and purchased it... 

 

Here are our corrospondence between each other:

 

Buyer: Can you tell me if this is a poster or are sending the two items?

 

Me: The poster is already on its way to you.. there is no controller or headset with this auction... It was stated in the description prior to your purchase, thank you for your question.

 

Buyer: I'll send it back no worries keep it the change your welcome

 

Right after this, they left the feedback... I dont understand how me clearly answering their question can be confused as me giving them attitude.. They obviously where mad at the fact they bought something that wasn't exactly what they thought they were getting (which they admit to making the mistake on their own part) and then they took it out on me because they were already mad about it and somehow made the mistake or misreading my reply as an attitude... 

 

How can this even be allowed to happen? How can I get this straightened out? I've tried contacting the buyer and explaining to them that they misunderstood and mistaken my reply to them.. but they refuse to get back to me.. What can I do about this, because this feedback is obviously untrue and undeserved.

 

 

Selling discussion

I list an item for $100 and I put a buy it now for $200, And I know someone would buy it for $200. But of course someone has to bid on it instead of watch it and ebay wipes out the buy it now. WHY? Why can't they leave the buy it now for others to use. I have seen so many items that I would have bought now that others bid on and take the option away. Why does ebay not do anything to help the sellers? Its all about the buyers.

Why does ebay allow the buy it now to go away

Recently had a  case injustly ruled against me for an item I didnt receive.Ebay said Case was ruled against me because seller provided tracking evidence item was delivered to my country Portugal!Ebay went by the tracking link provided by seller,which in this case was Royal Mails ,which didnt specify any address in Portugal,simply "Portugal"!

Upon checking full tracking details with local Post office as well as Global Tracking ,I find that item was delivered to a different address from the one on item  order details !

 

So,to recap ,seller sent my order/item to different address and eventhough I made Ebay fully aware of this ,with links and detailed images ,in my appeal,Ebay still failed to overturn decision!WHY?

What irritates me even more is that there is clear evidence in case messages ,that seller was lying and being contradictive,yet none of this was taken into account in Ebays case decision.

 

After this experience,I am now afraid that if another seller sends item to a wrong address in Portugal,Ebay will again accept it was delivered "to Portugal! and i will have the same problem.So,my trust in Ebays buyer protection has completely diminished!

My Account discussion

This occured while making an offer on an item. 

 

Me and the seller made counter offers and I stated I would be willing to pay $60 if the shipping was reduced to $15. 

Made and offer of $60 while the shipping was still at $30 (figured the seller would reduce price). I'm fine being completly wrong at this point and paying for the $30 shipping. 

 

I recently messaged the seller asking if I would be refunded the $15.

I was told no, and because I made an offer of $75 and $15 for shipping.

 

Though when I look at our chat, I clearly said $60+$15 shipping. Looked at the transaction and it says $60+$30 shipping. So I clearly never offered $75+$15 anywhere, and wondering why the seller can just say I am willing to pay slower $15 shipping now for $30 towards shipping. 

 

If i could be enlightened that would be fantastic!

 

Best,

 

Jason

Member To Member Support question

So here's the deal. I mainly sell picture frames made from reclaimed barn wood. I get requests for custom size frames or people looking for a deal if they buy a bunch of them daily. Is there a way to invoice them with out them actually hitting the buy it now link first? Before eBay got **bleep** about not letting people add their email address to messages I used to just ask for it and send them a PayPal invoice. Can't exactly do that now so currently when I have someone that is OK with the price I give them and they want to still buy an item(s) I have to go through my listings and find one (or a combination of items) that comes close to the total I gave them then have them buy that item. Most of the time when I do that the total falls a few bucks short of the total I told them which equals $ lost. Sometimes I have them buy a certain quantity then refund the overpayment in which I lose $ since eBay does not refund any fees when I do a partial refund. I do not like doing it that way because it screws with my inventory counts. Requests from repeat buyers are not a problem since I already have their email on file and a few clicks later they get a PayPal invoice. Having them request a total only works if they have more than one item in their cart and the items can't be from the same listing. Even then I can only adjust the shipping total. The make offer link is nice but it only shows up on listings that do not have variations. Almost all of mine have different color variations. I want to be able to seal the deal as quickly as possible. If you give people too much time to think about what they are buying there is a greater chance they will either look somewhere else for it or they just forget about it. About 20% of the people that look for custom items actually buy one. From doing follow up messages to people that asked about custom frames, most do not buy because they either think I am running a scam or they do not want to jump thru hoops to make an order. To make it a bit easier I started sending people to my Etsy page where it is a million times easier to do custom frames. When I called up eBay to find out about the invoicing I told them I would start sending people to a different website and they didn't seem to care. So I want to ask the eBay community what you do for custom requests? Would it be easier In the long run to just make up a dummy listing where I can change prices and shipping when someone asks for a custom item?

 

Thanks,

Tony

What happened to the bids on my item?

I have a Buyer that is saying the handbag I sold is a fake.  She went straight to ebay to ask for the return so I emailed her to ask why she thought it was a fake and that I would refund her if she was unhappy but could she pay for the shipping.  She wont even answer me back.  My question is can she leave bad feedback if I take the return? I rather have to pay for shipping then getting the neg feedback.

Thanks Steph.

Any item over 5lbs going from East Coast to West Coast is absolutely ridiculous with USPS, Parcel or Priority.  I changed carriers to FEDEX GROUND entering exact measurements and weight.  The quote entered  was way below USPS and reasonable.  I listed the item using FEDEX.  The supplement charge was not posted to my account until the invoice was due.   I received the "supplement" charge on my eBay invoice and it was outrageous!!  I expected the surcharge and taxes to be added but did not think the charge would be way off.

 

If you ship FEDEX GROUND or SMART POST, how do you continue to ship FedEx if it's cheaper than USPS and avoid the ridiculous supplement charge?

Hello. I have been shipping for a while so I am familiar with rates, etc..My question is, this is the first time I have ever shipped clothing via PM in a poly bag. I know it should travel with other PM correct? So that would include boxes? Or do they separate lighter PM from other heavier PM??

 

Usually I ship my clothing via FCM but this time It is 14 ounces. The bubble mailer is a dollar more. My margins are not high so I am trying to maximize my profits so yes every dollar counts but anyways...

 

Do you think, in general, mailing in poly bags would be subject to damage by other heavier boxes via PM? As compared to FCM which usually deals with only envelopes/lighter articles, so the poly bags would be safe you know?

 

Thank you

Shipping & Returns question

I've called ebay customer service less than a handful of times the past 15 years. Every time, it's an awful experience with lacking  resolution for what I've called for. This morning, I was told, in not so many words, to deal with it and was hung up on. I was frustrated, but didn't yell or use inappropriate language...until after I heard the click on the other end of the phone (to which I did scream profanity at the phone I was holding *great way to start the day*) Ebay keeps trying to revamp and change policy for sellers, but they would benefit more by doing so for their Customer Service Department. Every CSR I have had the joy of speaking with never has empathy, truly understands what I'm talking about, and sounds like they are literally reading policy to me off a screen. I think all customer service rep should be required to list and actually go through the process of selling on ebay before they are allowed to answer the phone and advise anyone of anything. They should be required to sell a set number of items, in multiple categories, for a long enough period of time that they truly understand what it means to be a seller. The CSR this morning contradicted her own answer pertaining to ebay policy. When I pointed that out, she acted like I was being problematic. She obviously doesn't like her job and has become and expert in "Huffing & Puffing" while grunting her way through our conversation. She didn't take into account my stellar Seller history, or act like my business mattered at all. Despite ebay policy being on my side, why are the reps automatically siding with buyers? Ebay has made a lot more money off of my seller fees than the buyer I was calling about, this month alone. Does ebay really find one botched transaction by a single buyer (who hasn't bought anything in over a year) more valuable than top rated sellers with great feedback? I am not perfect, I make mistakes just like everyone else, but I am honest. When I am wrong, I am humbled and try to make it right. I hope no one else feels the way I do this morning. Being unappreciated is not motivating me to continue selling. Not that I think my concerns would be taken seriously (or even read), I would like to at least make an effort to suggest something beneficial in this area. I'm not looking to complain or vent. As a seller, I deal with customer service with every listing. I would never treat my buyers the way I was just treated. Thanks in advance to anyone that can point me in the right direction.

please help authenticate this lv bag

 I won an auction, it was an iphone for 120$. Ebay stated shipping for 7.55$ - 127.55$ total. I payed it all and e-mailed seller about it. Then I received this message: "I will not incur the fee that you declined to pay when you made the payment through PayPal with the credit card.
Either I will decline the payment through PayPal or you can add another $5.27 to my account. If not, I will cancel the auction through eBay."

 

- is it normal? Never heard of any additional charges or smth. that buyer should pay additionally. I like the phone very much and want it, what's can be done? 

Is it normal way of acting for seller?

Bidding & Buying question

I recently purchased a Sega Genesis Console from an inexperienced seller. Its not uncommon to find sellers with little feedback selling old game consoles. Usually a mom who is cleaning out the attic and trying to get rid of her now grownup kids old stuff. The packaging was horrible to say the least, but that's not the frustrating part. The frustrating part is that the console didn't work. I thought maybe it was the cable because I wasn't getting a signal from the console to the TV. So I purchased a new cable. I immediately contacted the seller and she was apologetic and told me she would refund me my money. I told her that I would wait to see if the new cable fixed the problem. Well when it arrived a week and a half later, it didn't fix the problem. Still not getting a signal to the TV. I contacted the seller on Tuesday of this week offering to work out a deal. Maybe a partial refund so I can try and sell the console for parts or repair. In the end I would probably lose money in this deal, but I didn't want to overwhelm her and make her have to pay for return shipping. I didn't hear back from her and so I sent her another message this morning. Haven't heard back yet. So I'm getting a bit frustrated. I don't want to open a SNAD case, but I may have no choice. Other than continuing to wait patiently for her answer, are there any other options available to me? All I was asking for was a partial refund of $8 from a total payment of $32.80. Even if I sell the broken console, I'm going to lose money. I could try and get the whole amount back, but I'm just not that kind of buyer.

Patient but Frustrated

How are sellers getting my phone number?  When I bid on an item, I got a call from seller telling me that I was "close to his reserve price" and he was just making a courtesy call.  HOW DID HE GET MY PHONE NUMBER FROM eBAY?  I want my number hidden from my profile when viewed by others.  Thanks

Handling inappropriate behavior

Okay so I'm new to selling on eBay but I have never experienced such a frustration and unprofessionalism when trying to sell an item. This is the THIRD TIME trying to sell it and its not that they don't even pay. They don't even message you! The 2nd buyer did in fact message me but oh boy it was a scam. eBay needs to address this BS. Of course all of these buyers had 0 transactions in their history. I wish I could just restrict people with 0 feedback to buy my item. I've always paid the day I purchased an item. Is it really that hard? What really ticks me off is that I already know now when someone will not pay and I have to wait 2 days to open a case then I have to wait another 4 days after that. If you multiply that by 3 and add in the 7 days you wait for an item to sell that's over ONE MONTH trying to sell one item. Sorry.. this is more of a vent than anything.

Third time trying to sell a single item.

Seller tried asking for more money after the auction ended. When I refused he just issued me a refund and relisted the item again. How can I report this?

Bidding & Buying discussion

Hello,

 

I purchased and paid for an item on 5/16.  The seller has not provided any shipping information.  I've tried contacting the seller and did not get a response. When should I start claim process? I feel like a week is plenty of time to ship the item. 

 

Thanks,

 

AJ

Seller not responding...

This was my first item I sold but been a buying member for years! This person claimed he bought item but there is nothing present in my paypal account and I never accepted any other type of payment. The buyer isn't too clear in his short emails but I don't want to give myself a bad name. Can anyone suggest or let me know how to solve this? It show item sold under eBay but no signs of payment and pt is requesting refund. How can I give a refund when I never seen a transaction in paypal. Also ebay is asking getting for money when I never really received any money! Thanks to anyone with some answers!!

seller claims he paid for item

I'm getting a little sick of buyers not reading my descriptions that say "DO NOT MAKE A PAYMENT UNTIL I SEND AN INVOICE" (and eBay TOLD me to do that when I talked to their repreaentatives) because a majority of the time, the shipping calculator doesn't estimate the proper amount, or estimates for the wrong type of postage, and then the buyer gets mad at ME because THEY didn't read. Then I refund them and send the invoice when I have the correct shipping amount. On their end it says they've already paid. How hard is it for them to have a properly working system in place? PayPal and eBay are currently the same company, so why are the two sites not talking to each other?! I'm getting so frustrated that I'm debating on not using eBay for selling anymore.

Almost every other customer I have had has not read the description, and got mad at me for their incompetence.

There should be a check box that says "buyer pays for shipping, estimate to come at time of purchase" because I'm sick of this.

Invoices - Angry Venting

These look okay to me but I am not crazy about the original part of the sole, it doesn't quite look like leather to me and imprint looks slightly blurry to me. Any help would be most appreciated!
