Hello all

 

Just recently I had an unpleasant dealing with member who purchased my item 271777084429 Breviile hemipshere mini blender

 

Upon recieving the item the buyer claimed it was not working. I told him that thats impossible because the item was tested 3 times prior to listing it. Once before thoroughly cleaning it then once after cleaning it then it was tested again before boxing it


I told the buyer to try to reset it and something might have happened in shipping, It could have been dropped but according to this member the box shows no damage. I knew that theres no way that this blender would just quit working.

 

He filed for a return request and me being an honest seller accepted the return so that I can inspect this item and make sure nothing was replaced and altered for it not to work

 

He claimed that he took it to an appliance guy and was told that the jar on those originally came in plastic, That statement alone made me sure about my doubt that this guy is pulling a fast one on me. I know for a fact that the blender came originally with a glass jar because it was bought brand new with a glass jar. Hes making it sound that the jar was replaced and it had to be wiggled for it to work. Thats his second lie right there

 

Got the item today and the first thing I noticed was the 3 big dents on the nice brush chrome base, that wasnt my concern at that point, I immidiately plugged it in and sure enough as I expected it is working. Turned the jar in every position (handle facing me , on the back and on both side) and worked every time I turn the knob. Left it off plugged in for 10 mins came back and turned it on, Its working flawlessly.did this 4 times and never fialed to work (again as I expected)

 

Inspected the whole blender and another thing that I noticed was the jar has moisture inside and has a sour smell, I know for a fact that this blender jar smells like Dawn dishwashing soap because Im the one that washed and air dried it before listing. I can guarantee that this blender was used by him or somebody in their household.

 

Ebay now wants me to refund him because I accepted the return. I told ebay I accepted the return so that I can inspect this blender , Itll be kinda hard to prove that its working properly if its not in my hands

 

This member got away with this kind of dishonesty once before and if you check his feedback that was left by a seller it states on there that this buyer was refunded by the seller and returned the wrong item.  

 

Does ebay really let crooks like this member do business on here? It is outrageous. First this buyer already lied about the item not working then on top of that ruined a very nice blender

 

Sad part is ebay is favoring this crook. I was told that because I accepted the return I have to refund him once the item is delivered. 

 

This member knows I dont take returns unless the item is not as described but to me both his scamming ways failed. The blender is working Flawlessly. We are honest people and would not sell items that doesnt work and if for some reason it is not working upon arrival and was retuned in the same condition it was in we dont have any problem giving refund

 

Any help or advice to this matter is greatly appreciated and Thank in advance

Shipping & Returns question

What to do with a dishonest buyer

Hello everyone,

 

My first question in the forums is for the following reason:

According to e-bay rules "If the buyer doesn't respond within 7 days, you can close the case and you'll receive a final value fee credit."

 

However in my Resolution center ebay.jpg

I'm waiting buyer to respond 9 days already and yet е-bay don't give me option to close the case. Should I wait for eternity?

Or how I'm supposed to close this case, cancel the transaction and proceed with my final value fee credit.

 

Just few notes:

- Buyer never paid the item.

- Same buyer bought 2 items from me, I've opened UPI case for the other one but I made mistake (or was too gracefull towards buyer) to open Cancel request, right after Auction was over, instead of waiting 2 days and then open second UPI case - that would be 2 consecutives UPI strikes for buyer.

- I don't want (I can't) contact e-bay by telephone to contact them directly and I find it a bit frustrating to contact them only by phone.

Hello Folks,

 

I recently purchased a rather large set of pink depression glass goblets and sherbet glasses.  The pieces have a panel optic shape in the blank and a beautiful etched design.  The etch design consists of floral band of roses and a tilted basket with flowers tumbling out.  The water goblets stand about 7" tall and the sherbet glass is approximately 3 1/4" tall.

Does anyone know the manufacturer and pattern name for this design?  I strongly suspect Tiffin as the maker, but I've been unable to find this design in any of many glass books.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Hello All,

 

I recently came across this interesting Laughing Buddha figurine. It appears to be made of heavy, amber colored resin or glass. It measures approximately 2 3/4" tall and 3 1/2" wide.  It came in a fancy box with cloth lining.  The inside of the box has a plaque with Chinese writing.  A plastic coated card was also in the box with Chinese writing.

Can anyone translate the writing for me?  I suspect the figurine isn't worth much, possibly made for the tourist trade.  But it looks interesting with the fancy box and all.  Any information about the piece would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

Help ID Scandinavian glass plate with logo

I think, this is a pretty neat necklace, but not sure of age. Looking at it, now, I see Mt Fuji in the background on some of the squares, so it must be Japanese. Some squares depict a pagoda, but I haven't yet figured out what is depicted on the other squares.  A magnet doesn't stick to it, so it's not brass.

 

Would cloisonne be an accurate term for the squares, or something else? There's a spot of verdigris on the back. If that wasn't there, I don't think I'd clean it.

 

Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

So this bracelet is stumping me. Tee construction feels right for art deco era, the metal is a potmetal type, has a faint silver plating, possibly rhodium, and theres lots of tiny rose cut marcasites. The clasp is foldover type, so not much help there.

Whats throwing me is the condition. All the marcasites are there (they do not appear to be prong set, but with marcasites this small Im not surprised), and they really sparkle. Other than a tiny bit of pitting to the metal on the back, the condition is really, really good. As if it was never worn, or even moved lol.

What do y'all think?

I got 24 comic posters at an estate sale for $20 - still in their original plastic sleeves, including one that I believe is very rare - 

it is Art Thibert's promotional poster for the NIGHTWING series that never was - it was canceled when Thibert left DC comics and went to work for MARVEL.

I found one other example; selling with the original artwork for $4,000, but no other examples. How do I find out what it & the others are worth? Does anyone here know it's value?

I've found a website that gives comic book values, but none for comic posters - is there one?

I picked these up at a flea market. I own several real Moreau table lamps, but they are in good condition compared to these and don't "feel" the same. I'm questionning whether these are true Moreaus, copies, or even from a kit. Here's why:

 

1. The metal is a dark gray and very smooth. Is this spelter?

2. I can't read the seals at the bottom of either sculpture.

3. The date 3-21-57 is written in red marker on the inside of each base.

 

Any opinions are greatly appreciated.

Anyone recognize this artist?


Hello All,

 

Maybe this post would be more appropriate in another group, but I sure do like the good results I get here, so here goes ...

I recently purchased this nice amethyst oil lamp.  The font has 9 panels with a rounded top.  The stem and base are also 9-sided.  The collar is old 2-line brass version.  If original to the lamp, the collar type would suggest the lamp was made pre-1876.  The lamp stands about 7 1/4" tall to the top of the collar and the base is approximately 3 3/4" wide.

Does anyone know the name of this lamp and/or the likely manufacturer.  To me, it has a Boston Sandwich look to it, but I haven't been able to find this lamp in any of my books.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for any assistance the group can provide!

I have tried to get in touch with that person to find out which brochure/catalog but unfortunately I have not received a response. Does anyone know which catalog has the outfits in them? If so do you know where I can purchase the catalog? I am attaching the photos of the package.

I am hoping someone can help me out on this art nouveau style mirror.  I found another on another site just like it only in an ivory color.  It was described as French ivory/celluloid from 1915.   I know the colors of celluloid can vary so what I am mainly interested in knowing is if it is actually an older piece.   I am guessing it is judging by the patina, wear on the handle and style of the mirror glass.  It is about 4.75" long and the mirror diameter is about 2 3/8" in diameter.  Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi

 

I got this piece today.  Saw it and just had to have it.  It is a bronze lizard or, more likely, a horny toad.  It is signed on the bottom, but it is really hard to make it out.  It has a bale so I think it is a pendant.  A really big, heavy

pendant at 3 1/4" by 2 1/4". It is really neat looking.

Has anyone here seen anything like this? Or a point in the right direction?  Or, is there anyone who can decipher that signature.

Any and all help is most appreciated!

Hi! I'm not sure which board would be best to post this on, so I'm starting here. Any horse lovers here? I think I have a piece of horse tack that would fit at the front of the chest of a horse. It is leather, beaded Native American style, and has Mexican Alpaca silver buckles. Can anyone tell me anything about this? Do I have it right what it is? It measures 12 1/2" on the leather with the parts holding the buckles at the widest point. Here are the pictures.....

The most irritating thing about internet pages are the video advertisements that start up unbidden whenever you open the page.  Usually these ads involve screeching music or grating voiceovers, which provoke nothing but hatred as the viewer scrolls up and down the page to find where the stupid ad is stuck so he can turn it off (and vow NEVER to buy that product/service).  EBay in its complete lack of wisdom was destined to employ these ads eventually, and now they have, only with a typical eBay twist--you can't do a "mouse-over" enlargement to see the item in the auction without the video ad breaking through on top of what you are trying to see.  View the screen shot below to see what happened when I tried to get a closer look at a cover in an auction that had an auto-video ad embedded in it--

EBay Advertising Idiocy Strikes Again

So I'm looking for advice on selling a large photo negative collection I purchased from a local auction house.  It came in three large crates filled with slides from the 60's through the 90's from various NYC photo and advertising agencies as well as thousands of unlabeled slides.  Most are of fashion models, black and white, many are of risque nudes or topless models and others are of NYC buildings graffitti etc.  Most of the the slides are in numbered or cataloged  sleves and various are labeled with the models name.   I would imagine 30 thousand slides would be conservative plus hundreds of black and **bleep**e photos.  Some signed others not.  Just from an hour looking though I got nowhere.  What is the best way to sell these??  As an entire collection??  Shipping would cost a fortune.

CESAR PARIS ABSTRACT ART


Hello Folks,

Are there any Boehm porcelain figurine collectors in the group?  If so ...

I recently purchased this porcelain sculpture made by the artisans at Boehm Studios. It must be quite scarce, as I can only find one other example pictured anywhere online.  The dealer who had this other example referred to it as "Trotting Foxhound".  The sculpture is certainly a wonderful rendition of a tri-colored foxhound, but I was wondering if anyone knew if this was the correct name of the sculpture.  I'd also be interested in knowing approximately when it was made.

The figurine is rather large and stands about 8 3/8" tall to the top of the tail. It measures approximately 10" long from the tip of his nose to the back of his right rear foot. It has a glossy finish.  The underside of the hound's belly is hand signed with a Boehm script signature.

The hand signature on this piece suggests to me that it may be from the 1950's or 1960's, but I'd like some input on this.  I'm also thinking that very few were likely produced.  Does anybody have a Boehm porcelain reference that mentions this figurine?  Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can provide!

I've been looking at thrift stores for Barbie dolls--sifting through the ones that have totally mangled hair, or ruined outfits, and plucking out the good ones or ones that may only need a hair reroot. In doing so, I stumbled upon this gorgeous doll, stamped 1976 Mattel on the back of the head. However, I am unsure if the dress/ensemble she came in is the same year/the one she originally was sold with. The tag inside reads 'official Barbie fashion' and is white and pink.  Her hips are able to twist left and right, and her legs are 'squishy' and somewhat bendy. Though, the year seems a bit late to be a TNT and so does the face. Below are pictures of the Barbie and her dress.

I posted this on the antique board with no responses so I am hoping someone here can help me out on this art nouveau style mirror.  I found another on another site just like it only in an ivory color.  It was described as French ivory/celluloid from 1915.   I know the colors of celluloid can vary so what I am mainly interested in knowing before listing is if it is actually an older piece and made of celluloid .  I am guessing it is judging by the patina, wear on the handle and style of the mirror glass.  It is about 4.75" long and the mirror diameter is about 2 3/8" in diameter.  Thanks in advance for any help.

What is currently going on with ebay??? All of the relist item descriptions are showing up in code! OVER IT!

Selling discussion

I recently purchased a $75+ fragrance on ebay.  The seller did not call out in the listing that the item was actually a hybrid product, a discontinued item that is essentially an all-in-one home fragrance / skin fragrance.  For fragrance afficianados here, it's a Jo Malone product  called"Blue Agava & Cacao Living Cologne".   Her listing was technically honest but for those of us unfamilar with this obscure product, it is VERY easy to presume that this is the standard cologne, just in a much larger size. 

 

I did NOT realize that this was not the standard cologne. My problem is that it smells NOTHING like the other items in this same fragrance e.g., cologne, candles etc. etc., all of which I've purchased in the past.   In fact, until i did my post-purchase research, to understand what I had purchased, I had presumed that it was counterfeit - since it truly smells nothing like the fragrance that I know and love AND, I wouldn't even describe the scent as pleasant - certanly nothing that i would ever choose to smell like.  The seller contends that it's a "lovely scent" and simply "lighter" than the standard cologne.  IF this were the case, I would simply chalk this up to experience and move-on...but it truly smells NOTHING like the fragrance that I love.

 

So, I initially opened a request to return with the seller, stating that the listing was innacurate...the seller fired back that it was certainly not a fake, and that she would definitely not accept returns.  She then opened a case, that was seemingly instantaneously decided in her favor...VERY frustratrating since I didn't even get a chance to share my side.  I appealed the ebay decision BUT since I really didn't have any new info to share, it hasn't been overturned.  The rep said that she could again politely request that the seller accept a return...I never heard back from ebay and have zero hope that the seller will change her tune.

 

It's especially frustratating knowing that I have no use whatsoever for the pricey product...of course, I could very hippocritically try to re-sell it on Ebay...in hopes that ebay will then side with me when the would-be buyer opens a case.  :smileysad:  

 

I've been on ebay for nearly 15 years and this is easily my most frustrating experience...I paid via PayPal...is there any point in contesting the payment with my credit card company (Visa)??  Is there any other recourse??

 

Thanks in advance for any thoughts...

 

Shipping & Returns discussion

I bought a 2 pound item.  Paid $6 flat rate shipping (listed as "Standard" shipping in listing).  Seller shipped Priority Mail, 2 pound rate.

 

Item is not as described, seller accepted return request, out pops a First Class Return Service label.

 

Just curious if there's a glitch with return labels or if anyone knows why this happened. 

 

I guess I'll be spending my morning on the line with ebay getting the label switched up.

Selling discussion

We used to get a ton of sales from UK, Canada and Australia.  Since the Global Shipping Progranm started, that business has all but died. 

 

The only reason we are so vested in eBay is because of the international exposure.

 

There was a story in the UK's Guardian newspaper about Chinese sellers not having to pay VAT tax.  This story got all the way to eBay management, and suddenly UK listings were getting a lot of exposure.

 

Now it's American sellers reaslly getting slammed. Views and sales are way, way down.

Why?

Because the Chinese pay NO shipping at all for their knockoff junk thanks to treaties and deals with Donahoe's cronies.

Because the Chinese have flooded the site with utter, utter trash.

Because buyers see eBay and they ASSOCIATE it with bad buying experiences, when they order from China and the item turns out to be cheap garbage or completely the wrong size/style/etc.

 

We demand equal footing and exposure.  This is disgusting.  Do something about it, eBay.

AMERICAN Sellers Need a Break, eBay!

I have a negative feedback and had a defect to go with it.

 

The defect is gone, but the feedback is still showing as "within 12 months"

 

The defect for the transaction had three reasons for the defect: SNAD dispute, negative FB and low DSR for As Described.

 

The defect for the transaction is gone, and all three triggers are showing as gone, even the one for negative FB(even though the neg is less than a year old).

 

I thought the defect would stick until the neg aged off, but that's not seeming to be the case.

 

The SNAD case was opened before the neg was left.  Since the case was the first trigger of the defect, are all aspects of the defect gone now because the case aged off?

Or, in other words, does a defect age off at the earliest trigger or the latest trigger?

defect gone before negative

I made a purchase for $38, it shows that the item was sold for $48.  I think this may be a scheme for eBay to make for money on listing.  They tell you to look at "sold" listings when listing your own stuff to get an idea of what things are selling for.  Could this be a way for eBay to make you overprice and have to relist?  Now with this no more relisting for free, it seems we're being scammed by eBay.....anyone else notice this going on?  Very sneaky....

Bidding & Buying question

Bought a vase, item description was:  Tamara Aladin´s design and Riihimäki Glass Factory product. I paid via PayPall.

 

I told about my purchase to my glass collector friends. They seriously doubted announced origin when they saw the picture of the vase. I asked about the vase on design glass forum and I was told the vase isn´t known in Aladin´s well documented production. I´ve made an inquiry to Riihimäki Glass Museum and I hope I´ll get answer soon.

 

 

I contacted the seller right away and told he what I had learned about the vase. The seller answered: "This is how it was sold to me and I have no reason to doubt the dealer who sold it to me.I am not an expert and I have no way of being 100% on the origin.
If you had any doubts you should say before bidding ,it is a lovely vase and I hope you will be pleased with it."

 

Seller hasn´t given me feedback. 

 

Is there such a culture on eBay, that for leaving negative feedback one will get negative feedback on return? They are called "revenge negative feedback".  In some auction sites that happens and therefore it´s not wise to give anyone negative feedback even if being cheated. 

 

As a new seller I must avoid negative feedback.

Technical Issues discussion

When I have orders on Sunday like this one was, I usually ship in the afternoon the NEXT day so if there are more orders I can take them to the post at the same time. What the buyer did was pay and then, ask to ship to their P.O. Box. because eBay had "defaulted to their FexEx" address.I told them I couldn't but they could cancel if they couldn't accept it at their "FexEx" addy. I waited as long as I could for them to respond, but time was almost up for the "1 business day shipping" period. So I went ahead and cancelled. Today I am looking and I see it affected my DSR "Dashboard". SO what and why did they DIS me. I was just trying to get things done within the "One business day" shipping period and now it is "MY FAULT?" WHere do we get to post feedback rating for eBay? It is something eBay needs. Is eBay a member of the B.B.B.?

Where is the POST button? **bleep** eBay? **bleep**?

Selling discussion

An experienced buyer just contacted me through eBay messaging that one of the set of 5 bowls I sent him arrived broken.  He followed my instructions in the listing and on the packing slip and contacted me directly(with pictures) without opening a case.  The package was insured and since they are no longer a nesting set of 5 I wanted to refund the entire price and file an insurance claim.

 

So, since my buyer didn't open a dispute how do I avoid a defect when issueing a full refund?  Would sending him all but one penny work or is there a better way?

Shipping damage-refund without defect?

Good Morning!  I just posted an 'open question' to cimmunity re: bidding!

First time I've made an inquiry so I figured I would make my qustion available to as many ebay members as possible!

Quetion in 'open post' and here is the same:  how is it that I have been outbid  twice by exactly $1.00, even though  my bid 

amout was an uncommon amount:  i.e., rather than $10.00, it was $10.63?  And yet, I was out bit twice by $1.00, to the penny!

I wondering how "hidden" my max bid really is, or do some folks just spend an inordinate amout of time going through every permutation of possible highest bid until they become the highest bidder. Or are people, perhaps, just using some program or other to present them with all the possibilities.

I'm not convinced this is just a simple cooincidence!!!

Thank you all for your time!  Have a great Saturday!  Thanks again!
