I have this izod lacoste rain jacket. Checking solds most of them say vintage and the pricing is all over. How do I know if this jacket is vintage? It is vented in the back and has corduroy collar. Thank you.
In faded letters it says, East India. Stamped 17is. It appears to be old,has a couple small chips on the rim,otherwise in good condition.
Would someone be kind enough to translate this, please? It's on the bottom of an old Japanese (I think!) tea or cookie jar. I'd really appreciate any help.
Please, someone, motivate me to list this stack of holiday cookbooks and craft books. I just can't seem to get my mind on the holidays. I wonder why??
Seriously....this is getting ridiculous. We didn't get this hot in July for Pete's sake.
How am I supposed to motivate myself to list Christmas stuff when I got this going on?? lol
Any wise words or sage advice? I'll even take threats if it'll get me to list this stuff lol
Hello. The other day i bought an Iphone Pink, and today the seller contacted me to tell me that they didn't have an Iphone Pink so they sent me one that's GOLD. They told me that once it gets here they are gonna refund me with the money. How can they already send me something i dind't want without asking me??
What should i do?? I need a refund now to buy a phone that really matches what i want!!! Also the other problem it's that here in Argentina when something arrives to the country, you have to go to the post mail and the only way to get the item you have to pay 50% of the total price of what you brought, So the only way to get that cellphone it's to me paying that and then returning. It's terrible 'cause i never asked for that phone.
Please help me, hope you understand. Sorry for my english.
Good morning everyone.
Ebay pulled this listing due to "problems with other listings" Ebay apologized for the inconvenience, but said don't list on Ebay again.
I am also attaching pictures I took
These have the hook in the front and came in the original antique box. I think they are Coral. Can anybody date these for me and give me an idea of what to say about them. Thanks in advance

When I click on Manage My Store under the Account Tab, it says that I have 84 ACTIVE listings. In reality, there are 110 ACTIVE listings.
Why the discrepancy? There are only 7 items that were listed within the last 24 hours, so even if they were not yet indexed, the active listing count should be at least 103.
Does this mean that, aside from those 7 listings, there are at least another 19 listings that eBay is NOT showing?
Are there any other possibilities?
Hoping someone can help I cannot mmake out this mark

This is a pendant possibly silver. It measures 2"long x 1"wide. There are some undistinguishable mark(s)....I can't tell if its a makers mark or surface marks made by working this piece. To me ,part of the design is that of grape leafs & grapes. There is also a trumpet shaped flower with obvious stamens? Native american or Mexican? Any clues?
I know these are post earrings,but with the clip back part, do they have a particular style name? or just leave it at posts?
I have checked Sandy`s site along with online supply places & I see photos of this particular style, but no style-name given.
HELP! I tried to list a new item today. Ebay says, "it appears you are offering money orders as a form of payment". I am NOT. I'm unable to list or revise anything! I checked My Account/Site Preferences/Payment from Buyers and all seems to be in order. Anyone else having this issue? Suggestions????
First time using this board since it all changed years ago, so sorry if the pictures are large.
I just can't find this mark anywhere. Anyone know? Thank you so much.
Why does the site style seem to change between pages? Even the tab bar keeps fluctuating depending on which page I'm on...
Is the entire site copypasted CSS? I AM VERY CONFUSED
This Brooch is really neat, however I Have a question, I have never seen a Brooch that has rhinestones with a shellac over it it or whatever it is that clear over the Brooch, could someone please tell me what that is called?
Thank you in advance for you're help!
Hello. Any help is appreciated with this very deep blue with green vase. It is embossed on the front and back with an elongated flower. The only mark on the bottom is 101.
thank you so much!
Hoping someone here recognises her......marked at back of neck, & to make it extra fun it's only a partial mark. She's hard plastic body with softer head & stands about 13" tall.
Looks like a copyright symbol & maybe beginning of name (left side) - then the date 1985 (or 65) on right side.
Appreciate any help or advice, thank you.

Perplexed, Bought this over 10 years ago when I was still collecting but lost my list with the associated artists'. I can only make out B O C or K then maybe "ing"? Selling my collection and really would like to attribute to the proper artist.
Can someone translate this for me, please? It's on the underside of an old Japanese (I think!) tea/cookie jar. Thanks in adavance for any help - I appreciate it!
Cup is like a milk glass and has what feels like a rubber coating half way up.
Any suggestions as to the maker of this very detailed art pottery swan vase? It measures 8-1/8 inches high at the rim, and 4.5 inches wide across the oval white clay (unglazed) foot ring. I've tried all my usual suspects (I was thinking Hull, but no luck), and google for once didn't help.
Kind regards! George
This is not a silver piece, but maybe is pewter, not sure, but take a look at the hallmark, does anyone recognize it?
Every thing about this frame says "Arts & Crafts," until I found the stamp on one side. It starts with the copyright symbol and says MS C 1977 and then 107 in a larger size.
Does this mean anything to anyone?
Can anyone help with identifying what this coin is and any value please? It is gold with a silver dragon on one side and the year 2000 on the other side. There is writing from another language on the coin(perhaps chinese.) Thanks for any help you can give.
Can someone help me with what this ashtray says?
Searched for the maker & pattern of this plate, but no luck, yet. 7 7/8" in diameter & quite heavy. Any thoughts appreciated.
Can anyone help me ID this Barbie? I thought she was in the Fashion Fever group, but have searched those and not found her. Dark hair so probably a Teresa or other Barbie friend. Thanks in advance.
I am not sure what this bottle or vial is for, but the wooden cap has a rubber gasket, so a liquid of some sort, maybe perfume? Also the hallmark is very ununusual.
My followers disappeared overnight. I had 139 and now poof...gone.
Did I do something wrong? strange case of pneumonia? (J/k).
I just don't if they are ever coming back -boo hoo!
I'm about to start selling a large number of items after minimal previous experience as a seller. I want to do things right but I've been reading a lot of horror stories about buyer scams making false item-not-as-described reports, putting another item (or nothing) in the box and returning it and pocketing the refund.
After searching for tips on how to avoid this I am not finding much. It looks like a loophole in the eBay system. I was thinking of using a bodycam which would capture contiguous (one straight run, not spliced) first-person-view footage of my packing the items, sealing, labeling, driving to the post office and dropping them off - for use as defense evidence in case of an above scam. To repose as questions:
* Is there any better reliable way to avoid the item-not-as-described scam?
* If I had contiguous footage of me packing the item and shipping it, would eBay even bother considering it in the case of a dispute?
* How frequent do disputes of this sort take place (rough percentage)?
Thanks for reading.
I had about 30 items end between 4 & 5PM today. Sold four of them, so I was puttering around printing labels and boxing things up. Decided to make sure I'd used all 50 of my freebies for the month, and found I had one left. Was about to scroll to see what I wanted to relist when luckily the blue "button" caught my eye telling me I had 500 free auctions. Special started at 5:15PM today and ends at 11:59 today. Seems like they knew all my auctions had ended and wanted me to relist. So I spent an hour turning all my fixed price listings that were sitting unsold into auctions. I had two items end today that had never recieved their "index counter" -- sat at zero for 10 days. Tonight they have already indexed. Strange.
Help, need advice please!!
I sold a pair of pants last month, and they were returned because they didn't fit. I reposted them. Well...today they sold again. I was happy until I realized it's the same person that returned them. I sent her a message, and as usual I get no response from a buyer. So, should I ship anyway or just refund?
Heads up, guys!
I was just relisting on my laptop and noticed a weird Ad at the top of the eBay page, which said I had a private message, figuring ebay has vetted ads, I got curious and clicked on it.
It was RANSOM WARE!
Fortunately, my in-house personnel knows how to get out of this screen. Go to Task manager, end process. It will come up again, so you have to quickly x the window (in Firefox), and repeat if needed. Rebooting now.
I'm on my iPad now. Hopefully my laptop is ok.
I know I know I know....all a buyer has to say is it's defective and he gets his money back. I get that and evidently he knows it too.
I sold him a Blueray internal burner for about 80.00. All he will say is that it won't work and he's tried 4 discs and it won't work.
Ok, then I'll give the return but it would be nice if he would give me more detail so that when I get the item back (if not a box of rocks), I can communicate with Asus support on what the issue is. I tried calling Asus yesterday and they asked me what operating system used, what type disks used, and a few other questions. I have no idea so asked if he could tell me OS, what type disks he used and a couple other questions. He refused to go into anymore detail except it doesn't work - defective.
It's ashame people can't be kind and help a seller. I'm not asking for the world....just a few questions so it helps me be able to talk to Asus to hopefully get it fixed since it is brand new and still under warranty. I don't understand this mindset.
Since item was brand new, I have a feeling it isn't really defective.
AGAIN, I KNOW HE HAS DONE ALL HE NEEDS TO DO (CLAIM ITEM DEFECTIVE) AND I JUST NEED TO ISSUE THE RETURN but just venting on what's the big deal in aswering a few questions about what the issue was with the item.
Hi there. I sold an item last night via 'but-it-now', and the buyer paid last night.
Do i need to ship that item today, or would Monday be okay to qualify for one day handling?
Thank you in advance!
As it says, ebay has closed the case but will not allow me to leave feedback for deadbeat buyer. Does anyone know how I can leave feedback for them?
Is it best to pull all listings when one is going out of town for 3 days, or to change listings to 3 day handling?
I read the rules, but I'm not sure what the best policy is to main TRS status. Would that mean packages would have to be scanned on the 3rd. business day after payment? I guess the day of payment is considered the 1st. business day.
Thank you for any help or clarity.
Does anyone know the cost for shipping an item in a USPS Priority Small Flat Rate Box, and does it include any insurance? If it matters, weight would be about 12 oz. TYIA!
Why are international buyers able to ask questions that do not offer international shipping?
It seems as though buyers should not be able to see items that they cannot buy. What would happen if the buyer didnt ask the question and went straight to buying the item when i do not offer international shipping.
They knew that i would not ship to them, but they asked if i would ship to them. And if i would be willing to combine multiple items and give them a reduced rate.
again, im just confused as to how/why they saw my items, even more so as to why they were able to ask a question.
Thanks in advance.
Does anyone have a clue what happened to the shipping calculator? A couple days ago it disappeared from my seller hub. I've reported it several times now and got no response. EBay has effectively crippled my ability to list any more items because I can't figure out how much shipping will cost. This is extremely frustrating. And it's even worse that they aren't saying anything about it. They don't even seem to be acknowledging that there's an issue.
Am I the only one experiencing thuis issue? What the hell can I do about it? It feels like eBay is NEVER on the side of the seller and NEVER communicates when issues arise.
Someone has just opened a return/refund case as the item doesn't fit. She is paying for the return shipping. My question is this: after I receive it and refund her will ebay automatically only send her the cost of the item for the refund or will they include the initial shipping in her refund? Don't think it's fair that I should pay for that shipping. Also, will they refund me the fvf's? This isn't my fault and I don't think I should be financially punished for anything. This is my first time dealing wth this tyoe of return, The buyer has been extremely nice about the return -- said she loves and wants to keep it, but it is no use for her daughter as it doesn't fit her.
Anyway, any way you can help me to understand this I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
He was trying to extort me for a refund so he wouldnt leave bad feedback. I still have the proof in the ebay messages. He left the feedback right on the last day and it's been more than 90 days. Can I get this taken off my account or do I have to have this negative feedback from a liar forever? Any help will be appreciated.
Over two weeks ago I paid & then sent photos/description of a Bottega V bag to authenticate4u for pre-sale authentification & have never heard back. I have emailed twice since then with no response. Does anyone know if they are still in business & if not is there another service that anyone could recommend? Thanks so much!!
I am interested in an item a certain Seller has for sale. There are specifics that I want to know before I buy. I have sent five emails over the last two weeks with ZERO response. I know they are doing business because they have feedback left every day. It seems rIdiculous that you would have an item for sale, but not respond to buyers with 100% ratings that have simple questions. HOW DO I GET THEIR ATTENTION?
UPDATE: For clarification, I am interested in buying a Franklin Mint Corvette Convertible. There are two colors of convertible tops (black and gray). There are several pictures in the ad that show the car....none of which show it with the top up or describe which color the top it. In fact, some do not have tops at all. I am looking for one with the gray top. My question to the Seller was simply "is the top gray or black or no top at all?" I have already ordered one from a different Seller that advertised it as the gray top. When I got it, it was the coupe, not convertible. They not only refunded me, but told me to keep the car for my trouble. Keep in mind that these run up to $250 because it is the 2008 Indy Pace Car.
I accidentally entered a listing twice, it didn't show up after the first time so I re-entered it, now I can't figure out how to delete one of them.
Hi. So a buyer purchased an item on ebay and i shipped the item with delivery confirmation. When they paid it showed in my paypal as pending just as all the others have. It was delivered on the 22nd and i usually get a estimated funds availabiulity date on ebay and paypal but when i checked there wasnt even "estimated funds availability" on the sold ebay listing just the title and tracking number and on paypal it just says try again later for funds availability. Anyone know what i shoould do?
How do I change a invoice if something was supposed to be shipped through GSP but now I want to change it so I send it through my own International Postal Carrier instead of GSP
The book cover and cloth are in bad condition, but the rich colorful illustrations as well as the entire contents are in good condition. I looked for this book on Abebooks.com to no avail. Copyright 1925 by Charles Scribner's Sons; Illustrated by W.J. Aylward. Published in 1936 by Scribner Press.
Any info would be appreciated.
is there a way to ofeer a 10% discount to auctions already started, in bulk?
I bought an item from a seller in China, and the tracking info on ebay says China post. No info is available yet, but I am not sure if it would even update on ebay. I see websites that offer tracking info from China Post, but those websites look kind of shady. I can't find a China Post website, and I don't think the seller speaks good english since I have purchased from this seller before. This time I would like to track the package. If anyone has dealt with this before feel free to respond. I would hate to lose a whole $1.99.
Hi, I have a gift card that I would like to use, but is a non eBay Gift card. Should I add to my summary, use and then delete and add my regular card back on?? Seems a little silly to delete/add/delete right?
Thanks for any help
Can someone help me ID the shape of these paperweights?
I've searched and can't find anything that looks like them.
They are shaped like weights for a scale but without a search term I'm coming up blank on google.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
What type of Package is a 6x9 poly mailer in USPS? Large Package or thick envelope?
I'm shipping cellphone cases with 6x9 poly mailers, I want to know what type of package is that in the shipping options for USPS, Letter, Envelope, Large Package or Thick Envelope?

Hi the label says Lenox Imperial but I can not find anything like this so I am asking if someone has seen this piece and if it is Lenox??
If I understand correctly, the eBay US and UK discussion Communities are separate things. How do I be part of both? I'm a buyer. Do I need to make up fake addresses, which happen to have to be in the US and UK, respectively (where I don't live, I just shop), just that I can be part of the discussion? In fact, I haven't encountered here anything forcing me to add any physical address.
You know, the US Community might be the biggest, but as an overseas buyer, I might some time want to buy from the UK as well. Or even not the UK, but some Asian sellers are showing up on eBay UK, but not on eBay US, strange as it sounds. I want to be on top of the best information of what both communities can offer.
In november 2015 bought some car seat belts extenders +. Total value app. 15$. Recieved them in january and after a few weeks one of them become hard to use, few weekd later another one ... almost inusable. So I have agreed to return them and as agreed sent them back. After the return there were various msgs with the seller.
Based on the E-bay mesagge the seller recieved my return on April the 17.
On the sam eday I have informed the seller about my expenses and sent him the reciepe scan. (3.96€), And gave to the selller the option of cahs return or take antoher item for me was the same.
On April the 20. the seller ask about my PayPal Acount to refunr I confirmed the acount. In that same mesagge the seller requested me to close the return on e-bay. So on ma next message I asked how can I do that because dod not found any "clickable" button to "close the return"
On April the 21. the seller replied: "but we try to refund you on ebay ,can not successfully ,we do not know why?". On that my rely was thet in my inboy I can see that my refund msg is marked as ended but that the refund is still open and askeg again what I need to do.
One day later on April the 22. the seller replied to me: "maybe something wrong with the ebay system, we will check it with ebay and updating it to you
if you have any questions ,please feel free to contact me"
On may the 29. I made probably the worst mistake. I find inside Ebay msg-es an option to "close the refund process" and i done that. So on the same day I informed the seller that I have closed the process manually as he requested and asked him to give me further info about my refund / take another item form the store. The value was: 19.96€ (items) + 3.96€ (postal expenses)..
And that was it... never recieved an money and never a reply to my later messages.
The days are going on and no reply arrive till now.
Any idea about what i can do?
I'm not even able to put a negative commnt on that seller profile...
Thanks to all / anyone that will give me any option.
...no other mark! The jug seems to be quite old. Thank you for your help.
Do I have to find and manually add each name a deadbeat blocked buyer ebays under, or is that done automatically. Thanks.
I was literally on ebay live chat last week, have they removed it again?
In the help pages they say they still use live chat, but i csnnot find a link to it, has any one got one?
Is anyone else having problems with the Anchor Store $75 eBay Branded Shipping supply coupon - issued quarterly? I have been trying to use the coupon since August but it will not work. I have contacted eBay on several occasions only to get responses that include:"I apologize that this is still an issue when trying to check out, and use the code. At this point, I'm not seeing any kind of update on this bug, or any fix as of yet.", "As for the ongoing issue, I would continue to try to complete checkout daily. It may be resolved soon, however I do not have an estimated date on when it is scheduled to be resolved.", "According to a recent update to the report, it is still showing as a site issue and while they hope to have a fix for it soon, they are unable to provide a date that it will resolved. You will have one more month (September) to use this coupon and we hope to have it resolved by then so you can take advantage of this benefit."
Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
The pattern (espresso) is still available on the website but this style is not. It has a tag but I don't recognize the store. The fabric feels like a microfiber and is definitely quilted. The lining is what's throwing me off. Here are some pictures.
Need some help adding the 'seller is away' message to listings. Anybody can tell me how to do it?
I have this pretty Biscuit Jar and I know it was made in Japan but it also has a few other marks on it and wondering if someone could help with the ID of the additional marks. It also has a large crack but does not go through to the inside and am wondering if it is even worth trying to sell. Any and all help or advise is welcomed. Thanks a bunch.
My buyer lives in my city and picked up my sale so I have no tracking to load, he gave me positive feedback this AM and all my eBay transactions are positive, but my money is still on 21 day hold. Is it too soon after the feed back or what's going on ? Don't understand never had issues on other sell sites only pos ratings?
I currently have a Apple Care Protection Plan Mac Pro M7812ll/b product for sale.
A buyer asked the following: "If I buy this from you would you send me the activation code through ebays email before you send this to me. Do to that I need to activate a Apple care + Protection plan onto my 2015 MacBook Pro before you would be able to ship it to me. Plus I want to make sure that this will activate on my MacBook Pro because I do not have a lot of time to be waiting to activate this product on my Mac. I will then send you a picture of it activating on my MacBook Pro after I have activated it so that we both know that we are good to go on this Apple care protection plan that you have up here for sale. I will greatly appreciate to here back from you."
I feel that this may fall under restricted rules concerning electronically delivered gift cards, but I'm unsure.
What would be the best course of action?
Original winner did not pay. Relisted this as a second chance offer for 24 hrs, this is the first time I have done this. I didn't know it would be a public one hour buy it now, thought the offer would only go to the 2nd place bidder. The item is now listed in my "unsolds", but when I click on it there is a winning bidder name. (not the original winner). Not sure what is going on.
I'm afraid I've forgotton the link to use for printing a postage label only (without an item).
Can anyone help?
Hello, I sold an item in July. Since it was over $200 signature confirmation had been requred. The item wasn't delivered as noone was home. It was in the post office for 2 monthes....
I contacted buyer couple times and asked if she picked up the item but received no respond.
Today, after 2 monthes since the item was sold I received it back as it was unclaimed.
What should I do now? :-(
I've posted similar topics on this forum and many responses have been helpful and echo my sentiment.
A few take aways and a few good examples of my own:
Selling anything on eBay for less than $50 is a fools errand. It's flat out not worth it since it seems a heavy concentration of problem buyers exist in this region. eBay fee's are a bit absurd and with recent increases in shipping rates at USPS, margins are narrower. It recently cost me $17 to ship a rather standard box to FL from NYC, something that I swear was maybe $9.00 just a year or so ago. Stuff below $50 is just not selling and I don't have a very clear hypothesis as to why. Perhaps heavy competition with **bleep** merchandise that has flooded the U.S. market. Example #1. I have a $300 Canali polo for sale, pretty much brand new, for $35.00. Only 2 watchers and it's listed as BIN. I previously had it listed at $75.00 with BO and I had far more watchers, still no sale. Weird for sure. This shirt should sell at $35.00 all day, five times a day, every day. To my point below, I am considering raising the price to $125.00 and see what happens then.
I tried a couple other things after taking the advice of many on here and the results are really very telling. I have a few expensive suits for sale. Initially priced at $350.00 and $450.00 with BO. Couple watchers and a couple low offers. I dropped everything by 50% or more ($125 for sport coats and $250 for suits) and did BIN. I lost watchers and no new interest. Now here is the kicker; a few days ago, as an experiment, I raised all my prices by 50-100% (yes, that's correct - I doubled prices in some cases) and my watch count has also gone up by 100%. Things that had maybe 2 or 3 watchers, now have 4,5,6 and that's in 48 hours. Weird. While it remains to be seen if it produces any sales, well, we'll see. A few others commented on here about this phenomenon and buyer mentally about creating "value" at the luxury side -- it's takes greater patience, however. I don't know, but there appears to be some logic in it. Or is this something much larger, dealing with eBay and exposure? I know it's a heavily discussed topic on here, but how is it possible that I can raise my prices by 50-100% and my interest goes up 50-100% in 48 hours? This, after 20 days of absolutely nothing? Very strange.
I have no doubt that many on here are correct that eBay is pulling some strings somewhere and it's really hard to understand the method being used. Something wonky is going on with eBay this year. While it hasn't impacted me since I'm a private seller, I'm in sales for a living and stuff like this fascinates me. Mostly because its the most organic reflection of our society and the ebs and flows of markets. And I'll say it again, just as people say others are nuts for selling items $1k or more, I think selling anything on eBay for $50 or less is even more nuts, considering the costs, time involved and frustration. The sad part is this is where many people can make money, the small business types. Flipping $20 items for $40, etc. I mean do I want to spend 15 minutes taking photos of a $200 tie, and another 15 minutes to write an ad, to post it for $40.00 and to net maybe $20-25 if I include shipping? I have a few $200 shirts I would love to sell, but they would probably only sell for $40 each, at best. It's unfortunate, that eBay makes it so difficut to sell stuff like this, these days. Now I am not judging anyone for their buying power/spending ability, but it seems to me that many people are in poor financial shape, thus making the low end market very soft right now. I think people are nuts to sell low end items mostly because the margins are so narrow and the risk of financial lose seems greater. Let the big box stores shoulder these loses. People seem prone to take advantage of flexible policies and that seems to have spilled over to eBay. I have rarely, if ever, had an issue selling a lightly used $400 sweater for $200, but every time I sell something cheap, and I mean just dumping it, it causes problems.
I've been a couple of hundred old rock record albums out in the shop all afternoon getting ready to list. I was just slipping a Boz Skaggs back in its cover and noticed a dark square shadow inside. I reached in thinking maybe it was an old concert stub someone left behind. What fell out was an old black and white photo from 1978.
Strange part is - its of a house I used to own here from 1986 - 1992. But I didn't move to this state until 1985. So - how did it get in there? Where did it come from? Who took it? There's a big hedge by the door that was never there when we moved in.
I left here and was gone for 3+ years in the early 90's and didn't take anything with me. Just hopped a plane with some clothes and left. I left some stuff at a friends house but no record albums. I bought these at garage sales when I moved back from Florida.
It has a date stamp of 11-11-78 on the back. How did I end up with this photo? In 78' I was living in San Diego for gosh sakes. This happened once before in the late 80's. I went to a thrift store and bought a cheap ugly red suitcase for a trip to Canada. Inside was a 6 year old parking ticket for someone I used to know many years earlier. She's in San Diego as far as I know the ticket was issued in San Diego, she's never been to my state? Freaky!!! I'm not cleaning anymore of those records today - that's it for me.
Anyone else ever find anything creepy when they were just minding their own business lol? Hey, it'll be Halloween in a few weeks
Recently I ordered an item and was charged $12 for expedited shipping (that was the only shipping option). The seller sent the item via Media Mail, even though it was not shippable by media mail. Given that the item was very light, I assume that was about a $10 difference which they kept. In your opinion, would this warrant a negative or neutral feedback? As a very frequent seller I can understand padding the shipping a dollar or two, but to charge for expedited and ship the slowest available service and keep the difference seems pretty shady to me.
How have your sales been...My have been dead for 9 days and that is unusual
I sold an auction item (361731551888) for $52 after spirited bidding by 2 of my repeat customers it was won by a bidder unknown to me, soon after I received the 1st message from the winner. Apparently he thinks there was shill bidding or he is trying to scam a lower price.
I bid this to make sure I get it so I can report your item to ebay. I will ask ebay to conduct their investigation on you. Call me at 818xxxxxxx
Me; What do you want?
If you want me to pay for this specific item you should adjust to the real price immediately. It is very clear and Obvious that you have bid so many times with two other numbers in order to increase the price. Any interested bidder, bids only one time and wait to the end of the auction. I want you to understand we buyers are not stupid.
Sir I am a collector and I don't play games. If you want to resolve this issue with me then do it accordingly.
Me; What do you think is fair?
This item Max $12 and that is very good and fair price between you and me to resolve this matter. FYI, No one will pay more than $7. As you may see your bidding history.
Here I sent an Invoice for full price
Ok so be it. I tried to resolve this matter but I guess you need to learn your lessen.
I checked this guy and he liberally gives negative feedback so I'm expecting my first. Is this Message exchange sufficent to to have it removed?
Perhaps I should cancel the transaction and take a defect?
Thanks for any help.
I was prevented from bidding, but the reason given isn't accurate. Got the message: "This seller has set buyer requirements for this item and only sells to buyers who meet those requirements." It went on to say that my paypal account isn't linked to my ebay account. This is, of course, false. I just purchased an item earlier today using my paypal account.
So I guess sellers can just randomly decide they won't sell to individual buyers and falsify the reasons?? If this was the case then couldn't they have the courtesy to say so in the description to avoid this frustration?
Wouldnt it be cool if store owners could offer store credit only-- instead of refunds as an option?
The idea would be buyer can get store credit in which to make an even exchange for an item which might in many cases cause less loss monetarily for a seller?
Many big box chains do it so why cant we?
It would help sellers and EBAY and PAYPAL keep money in their pocket and it would discourage return fraud.
What do you think of my idea?
I know many of you will complain loudly and explain ebay rules about returns to me that I already know. This is just a new idea to combat return fraud.
I know it hurts people who dont invest in a store but what can I say get a store then if they decide to do it?
Its meant to help power and larger sellers this idea.
This thread is more about info on what it takes to complete 30 transactions daily. I read often from users that they would like to make eBay a full time career. 30 transaction daily could do that for many.
We have completed more than 13,000 transactions on ebay each of the last 4 years. We also are successful on Amazon and have owned and operated our own website for over 15 years. I should also say that I sell new items and collectibles that I can source in quantities. I am not a seller of one off items as the time per item is far to high for me.
A typical days starts like this for me
The above work takes generally about 1.5 to 2 hours every day. Time for a break and breakfast.
Next it is time to update listings that might need inventory adjusted based on sales across the internet or incoming inventory. Since I now have a stack of orders, it is time to pack orders. I pack orders every day right up to my cut off time which is 3:30PM EST. I also have to fill the orders that came in during the day while I was filling the orders that came in after my cut off time the day before. My cutoff time is based on my local post office and how much time they need to scan all packages. Since I am a regular there I know the work load they have and I know I need to have my items at the post office before 4:30pm in order to be assured they will get an acceptance scan.
I want you to think about a few things. Try to determine what the average time it takes to pull, package and put an order in your outgoing area. I am not talking about all the pre sale stuff, I am only talking about how much time does it take to go and pull your item, prepare it for shipment?
This time frame is going to be different for everyone but I think a good average time might be about 15 minutes. Keep in mind I am talking about an average. Certainly some items are less and some are more but 15 minutes seems like a good number to use.
If 15 minutes is your average time that means you can fill 4 orders an hour and 30 orders would take you 7.5 hours. If 10 minutes is your average then 6 orders per hour and 5 hours to complete all 30 orders
So here are a few question I want you to ask yourself.
Time management is critically important to being successful at selling online and certainly on eBay in general. Organization is an absolute must, without it you are going to have to many issues to handle and customer service tasks are going to kill your day.
I would like to hear about other sellers and hopefully learn from your daily work and how you handle your daily selling chores.
Good Luck Selling!
Hi I sold a music cd to someone for 60.00 4 months ago. Today I have learned this person filed a credit card chargeback through paypal reason for chargeback is merchandise code 53. Paypal will not release the money back to me stating they have to fight the Credit card company. This buyer has never 1 time contacted me stating there was any problem with the ebay transaction that occured 4 months ago. Anything I can do or am i just going to be scammed out of this money? get to wait another month for them to dispute with credit card company. I have followed all the rules but I have no protection??
sold fake Tom's shoes. I stupidly bought 3 pairs. Did not get a refund so I'm out nearly $90 as I had too throw them out they were very painful
Real Tom's are wonderufl, so they were definelty fake. no dust bag either.
Grr so angry still.
I have heard that the post office is cracking down on letter sized items that are being mailed as packages, and they are either being returned to sender, or if caught at the other end, being delivered postage due, priority rate.
I don't know what it is here. I have never seen such a vast amount of low life desperate people in all my years on this planet.
Please sir, can you just give me $5. Come on how about $3 to make me go away. Tell you what, $8 and I won't leave you a bad feedback. My brand new item doesn't work. It's missing. The post office stole it. My dog ate it. My 6 month old infant bid on it, It's not green, it's orange...And somehow, somehow a couple of bucks is going to make it ALL...GO... AWAY.
What's wrong with these people? Is their station in life so low that they have no other choice but to slither through the muck to gain a few lousy dollars. Are they such life-losers that they have no dignity, no shame. No cognitive awareness of such a sad and embarrassing existence. Sometimes I want to give them money just out of sheer pity. Like someone begging on the street corner.
ebay really needs to clean up the garbage that has proliferated this web site and stop their liberal and seller abusive return policies. If you can even call them 'policies.' And bring plenty of trucks. You're gonna need em.
Today eBay announced the release of the inline feedback feature on Product Pages:
It allows users to quickly and easily flag any listing that doesn't belong on a particular product page. eBay then reviews those flagged items and takes action as appropriate. Please use the feature and let us know when you see any irrelevant listings on a product page.
Here are some product pages as an example:
Let us know if you have any feedback.
From the User Agreement: "To drive a positive user experience, a listing may not appear in some search and browse results regardless of the sort order chosen by the buyer."
In other words, eBay can hide any of your items (and they do!) This means they are taking money from people without providing a service (at their discretion?) I have come across items that are completely missing from searches (regardless of how many matches there are or how long the listing has been active)
I cancelled my store subscription because of lack of sales. Suddenly, items started selling again. I highly recommend other sellers try this to give eBay a taste of their own game.
Last week, 4 days ago actually, I get a guy that messages me about a price on something I am selling. I sell my item as buy it now (no best offer) for $43.50 and he wants to know if I will price match to someone that is selling something similar for $35. I explain the difference and why mine cost more. He tells me if I match that price, he will buy right away. I tell him I cannot and will not try to match that price but thanks for the interest and I figure he is gone.
So I sit and wonder....Why does he care so much about getting mine for the lower price when he thought they were the same thing (the items look very similar but are of different quality)...why not just buy from the other guy if all you're doing is price shopping?
Anyway, a little while ago, he messages me again and asks if I will take $40 for it and he will buy it. I have not answered yet. $43.50 includes shipping and it's a fairly heavy item that costs roughly $18-$21 to ship to where he is, plus I have the cost of the item and the ebay fees. I am not making a killing on these items as it is but...taking $3.50 off the price really will not kill me. So I wonder....do I now just ignore him just for the point of it all? Then I think, he will buy and then hammer me with negative feedback since I was unwilling to work with him the first time around. It all just seems a little weird.
How would you all handle this? Some of you are going to tell me to block him, aren't you?
