I am hoping someone can provide some information on this small tray.  It measures about 5 5/8" by 4 5/8".  It looks like Pickard with the floral pattern and basket off flowers in the center and gold overlay, but is marked what looks like "sace" Germany along with what may be a signature.  I can only make out the last letters "oines".  I find some listings where the "sace" is translated as saxe, and the lettering is very similar but all of these are printed on and not engraved. Any help will be appreciated.

The wood  looks like a different color depending which angle you look at it, not sure what kind of wood this is made out of or the artist that made it.

Have what I believe to be a carved bone lime paste box, but not 100% sure if this is correct.

 

Your thoughts on the possible age, origin and use of this item?

 

Materials used appear to be bone, copper, bakelite and wood.

Carved Bone Box. Your thoughts?

I usually have a great insticnct or gut feeling about a time period for pieces but this one has me completely stumped. What do you think? Vicotorian, 40's, 70's?

It has a large clasp. I think it is the chain AND large clasp that is throwing me.

Thinking cool thoughts during these hot days....

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

This question may make me sound like a complete dunce...but I'm a semi-lovable dunce... providing you pick up your dirty clothes and rinse off your dishes...hopefully, it's worth a little "stupid question" mileage...

 

Every time I've ordered from a particular seller, they offer cheaper prices if I buy outside of eBay. Honestly, it took a couple of times to get it. I thought no one would be dumb enough to put it in writing directly below the prominent yellow warning on every header.

 

I just don't respond. I know better than to take that risk {I'm just a plain old dunce..not really old...more semi-approaching the beginning of the tail end of middle aged...kinda...old enough to engage in utter nonsense when I'm seriously sleep deprived...and not nearly old enough to get a pass for it...but not a gullible dunce...most of the time...sorta...}.

 

I've only been making purchases for a few months. If I don't report a seller willing to violate eBay's policies, is there an impact on the seller community I'm not grasping?

 

The seller chose to be responsible for the consequences. Most of us resort to doing stupid things when we're desperate {or sleep deprived}. I don't know if that's the motivation, I'm just hesitant to rat someone out if they might depend on sales for their total income. On the other hand, I feel like the importance of reporting is escaping me. It would be just as wrong not to give the consequences to other sellers equal consideration.

Thanks in advance for your answer!  happyfcgonecrazy.gif

Bidding & Buying question

Item picture

 

I just bought two dolls as an Estate Sale and I don’t know much about them. I bought them because I thought they were in good shape.  This doll is about 22”-24” from head to toe. She appears to be of porcelain and held together, inside,  by a white elastic cord. The entire body feels and looks like it is porcelain.

The markings on the back of her head are:

A15T
(ABETTE,  CABETTE or GABETTE)

I find that A15 indicates a Steiner but that is as far as I can get.

Her eyes appear to be glass and are green. They look like real eyes. Her eye brows and eyelashes are painted.
 
Her fingers are all intact and I have not taken off her clothing to look for other marks.

The dress and clothing appear to be in very good shape.
 
She is on a metal stand marked:

311340
IMSCO
TAIWAN

 The other doll I listed is as follows:

 

I just bought two dolls as an Estate Sale and I don’t know much about them. I bought them because I thought they were in good shape.  This doll is about 13” from head to toe. She appears to be of porcelain and held together, inside,  by a white elastic cord.

The markings on the back of her head are:

SFBJ
236
PARIS
6

Her fingers are all intact and I have not taken off her clothing to look for other marks.

The pink dress shows wear and tear on the right elbow.  Other than that she appears to be in good shape.

Did I list this properly?  I have no WATCH and I believe this may be a valuable doll. I'm afraid I need to edit my posting.

 

Any help, recommendations, and thoights would be appreciated.

I DID NOT RECEIVE THE ITEM AFTER 90 DAYS

I'm a new seller on eBay and this is the first time someone returns item 
BUY bought 2 headphones but one works well and the other does not work well
  The buyer did not know how to do replace for it did not work return via the Internet
Found return because it does not match the description
He explained problem that the handset does not work very well and asked RESOLUTION
  I told him I do not know, but can it returns the item, and I refer you money
I worked and return the item

 

The buyer then sent me a message :

 

( Hi topv, it's me again. I wish you could reply in the other message section, but I have all the original stuff, the extra ear cushions and bag as well and will send it out really soon Smiley Tongue. Id love another one though since the white ones work so well Smiley Happy. If you want me to order another or if you can just send another when you receive this pair... Just let me know what would be more convenient! thanks!! )

 

me  :

 

Thank you for the Second Letter of Inquiry I understand that you want to replace the black one another.
I will send other immediately when received.
But first you must close the open case and you do not want the money and
I spoke with the seller replacement
Thank you

 

The buyer :

 

Hi topv, sent out the headphones earlier today. Should I just go ahead and cancel the return on my profile now? Sorry for all the questions i just want to make sure i do everything right Smiley Happy never had to do a return before.

 

me  :

Thank you for your message.
Always we want to be satisfied that you sent the speaker that does not work Do you want to replace them in the same color or want to change it blue or black or white Kindly send me your request and thank you for your purchase from eBay

 

The buyer :

Hi topv Smiley Tongue thanks for a choice! ;p i think I ll try a blue one this time i guess. Thanks a ton man!!

 

The buyer Send the handset that do not work and sent a message :

 

Black handset, which does not work very well and arrived me today and I will send you another one blue color also requested on Monday morning, and I hope that you accept my apologies again
thank you 

And I sent a message to Ebay and I told them all that

 

But I found that after this message from eBay 

 

eBay Customer Support has reviewed the case and made a final decision.

 

We issued a full refund of $23.50 on Jul 19, 2015 to the buyer. As described in the eBay Money Back Guarantee, the refund includes the purchase price, plus original shipping. This amount will be deducted from your PayPal account or charged to your preferred reimbursement payment method. The hold on this PayPal transaction has been removed. This case is closed.

But the buyer a refund back to me and told me :
 
Hi topv!! Sorry they sent me a refund... I must have done something wrong. I just sent the 23.50 back to you! Smiley Tongue thanks again man and sorry!

I sold 2 fairly expensive aquarium filters to one buyer. Together they were $250. One was new and the other was  used for about 4 months. I set the used one up on my aquarium to show it working. At first the buyer said he needed them by the weekend because it was an emergency. I got them to him in 2 days so he had them in time. I didn't hear a thing until this past Saturday ( he had them 7 days by then) and he stated the new one leaked and he hadn't even looked at the other one yet. He also said " I see you don't take returns so I will be leaving you negative feedback".The leaking issue is common and easily remedied so I replied and told him what to do and reassured him the other filter was functioning great and that it had been running until an hour before I shipped it to him. The next thing I hear is today and he says he called the manufacturer of the leaking filter and they are sending him new parts. This is impossible since they don't have customer service hours on the weekend.Then he goes on to say that the other filter has an issue with part of it and it is useless to him so he is throwing it away. He also griped that there was some water left in it. At most there would be drops in it. I dried it out but a tiny bit of water could have been in the motor.I pointed out to him that the feature he says does not work is shown in  a picture working fine but since he is so unhappy to return both filters for a refund. He replies and says that he doesnt know if the filter works or not but that it looks like it won't work. He also does not want a refund. He said " I am not the type of person who complains just to get a refund but I will be letting my feedback show the type of product you sell".  As I said these filters were not cheap so if there was really an issue, wouldn't he want the refund?  I think he is fishing for a partial refund so he can keep the filters . What do I do with this guy?

What do I do with this buyer?

Never seen it this slow,  not ever!  I had a potential customer message me through a listing asking , Did This Sell?  Did what sell????  I could not see the listing or item number picture NOTHING!!!!  I think its time to throw in the towel.  Something just does not seem right. not here, not anymore.

this is the worst i have ever seen it!

I just had a customer contact me about one of my items. He said that in his search results, the price shown that it was $19.99, but when he opened the listing to view it, it showed it was $49.99..but actually it was neither..its $29.99  anyone else ever have this complaint?

This was the item in question.. and it does concern me, and could possibly be a reason behind the lack of sales over the past few months

Buyer can't pay me

Pretty new seller here. I recently bought a used iphone for a pretty good deal. Did a little research, imei check clean, not stolen or blacklisted. Phone in good cosmetic condition. Cool. Put the phone up for auction and sold for a lot better than I expected actually. Next day buyer pays with a note to me: "please make sure you remove icloud before shipping". (not verbatim) **bleep** is that? I thought. Further investigation showed me that the phone was locked through apple and could not be activated since I didn't have the password. After a few brief messages back and forth I refunded the buyer (maybe 30-40 minutes after he'd payed and that was the end of communication.. Now my question is, how will that affect my seller rating/status? Nothing was shipped. No dispute or anything in the resolution center and as of now no negative feedback. (the first time I'm hoping that I don't get any at all) lol. Just wondering about the repercussions of a refund without a return so to speak. Thanks

Hi,

 

I have an HTML code with links to other parts of the HTML page. When I test them on Notepad++ the links work fine. When I add them via spreadsheet to our eBay items they stop working. I thought that perhaps the links somehow get deleted by eBay when I upload the HTMLs, but when I copied the HTML from an item to Notepadd++ then the links work perfectly once again. 

 

Has anyone experienced this issue or have any suggestions to why it is happening/ how to solve it?

 

Thank you in advance for any tips.

What would be a good offer

Hi folks and cheers from Sweden,

 

I have encountered a problem with a seller and I'm unsure about have the situation should be handled.

 

A seller informed me that an item I bought was returned to the seller by local customs. The seller refunded me and wanted me to buy the item again in a new transaction. I think he/she wants to kind of restart the whole transaction or something.

 

The problem is that an item that is just refunded is put on the list of Unpaid items on the buyers account. I keep telling the seller that this is what happening on my side but the seller has now refunded me a second time.

 

Has any of you guys encountered this type of problem?

 

I know that it's possible for a seller to send a request to cancel an order the proper way but it should be done before the item has been shipped. I don't think the seller can make that approach now.

 

What would you do?

A seller keeps refunding me

Hello,

 

I'm just a newbie here in eBay, I just recently purchased an item to a seller from China with free shiiping cost. My question, is it normal for the seller that they will not nofity me if they already shipped the item that I bought? It has been 4 days from now since i paid the item that I bought but still I didn't receive any notification from eBay that the seller has already shipped the item to me.

 

Thanks in advance for your answers! Smiley Happy

I have a question-my mother-in-law owned a golden teapot, creamer, sugar bowl, and salt & pepper shakers. They are stamped with Eggshell Nautilus on the bottom. Here's the thing...they have been broken and repaired. The creamer is the worst and the repair on it isn't very good. My question is this...is it even worth trying to sell these items, with a full disclosure and photos of the items? I hate to just throw them away if there is someone who would want them. But, I don't want to waste my time and seem ridiculous for trying to sell them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I recently received a shipping score defect for tracking not uploaded within handling time and scanned by carrier because I put my store on vacation for two days, (stating my return date) but the system still expected me to upload tracking info on time while I am away. CS said I needed to change my shipping time in my listings. I normally ship the same day.

 

What if I am away for two weeks but still accepting orders for shipment upon return? How would you even set shipping time to 14 days?

 

Selling discussion

 

 

While on the phone with eBay CS the other night I searched my listings on Google using my title keywords and no matter how many keywords I added to my searches, I could not pull up my listing or it's photos. We both did separate searches to cover more ground with no success.

 

Finally I cut and pasted my titles in the search box and my listings and photos appeared, yet when I clicked on either one it didn't take me to my listing. Instead it took me to a different format eBay search page where there was loads of items that only had one or two of my keywords in common. On some of these pages my items were so buried, I couldn't find them. Plus what is the odds that someone will search my exact title?

 

The CS rep tried searching some other seller titles and still got the same results. This has to be another component of the no sales on eBay, because when I clicked on titles and photos on Google for my other venues, I went directly to the listing pages, and so did he. He reported the problem, However I don't know if this is strictly an eBay issue or a combination of Google messing with eBay within Googles search algorithm.

 

I also don't know how many, if not all, sellers on eBay this problem is affecting.

I recently started selling sporting equipment on ebay that our physical store needs to get rid of. The one dilemma I have is what if someone walks into our store and purchases a glove or bat we are selling on ebay and we accidentally sell that same item online, or vice versa?

Glass Pitcher Creamer - Who made?

Here are my things that I wondered about:
Has KS ever had this small of a polka dot and would black and white be in a cognac bag
Has KS ever embossed bottoms of purses? 
Brass brads holding label on--pattern on them?
Stitching looked even but now I'm wondering if there's a weird slant to each stitch. Not straight line. 
Would KS have gold lettering inside and embossed not gold outside? 
What about closure? It's an odd way to snap and one half of the snap is labeled and the the other isn't. 
Leather is softer (not the rigid design) but hasI got suspicious after I got it and looked at it more. I can't find this style online anywhere. There is a coating so not raw leather. 
As I see the zoomed in photos, I'm more afraid it's fake. I see bleeding in the gold-- hadn't seen that as something to look for in my research but I just checked my KS that I got from KS directly and it nor my wallet bleed even when zoomed in. ALso, I see that the brads on my zipper pull has a spade and these are not. Unless KS used something different at one time I guess that cinches it.  Still hoping someone can tell me I"m wrong and dont' have to go back and argue with this lady who stated more than once it was authentic. 
Seller stated she bought it about 3 years ago

Is it possible to make an offer that includes a reduced shipping cost? I'm interested in an item (book)  with Best Offer option but the shipping price is $24.99, considerably higher than the $3.99 that I usually pay.

Best Offer

I have 16 buyers who have not left feedback, I wish that Ebay could give it to us if the buyer has not done so after 60 days. As a fairly new seller the numbers after my store name (245) are very important to me. I have a 100% rating and if the buyer has not asked for money back or complained about the item purchased or even asked to return the item he/she must be satisfide. I guess I should just be happy I'm making sales but I look forward to seeing my number grow.

I purchased a cheap tool from a seller in China.  It was faulty and I requested a return.  Funds were returned to my PayPal quickly, but this item is now in my "unpaid items" list.  I'm wondering if they are waiting for me to return the product before it comes off that list?  It will cost more to ship than the cost of the item, and I'm not sure how to ship it anyway, since the seller's address is like: 敏巧 钟

Does anybody know how many drafts you can make and keep on eBay for 30 days? I have a customer who wants me to list 350 all at one time instead of putting them up as i go. It's alot of work and I'm afraid i will get partially thru and many will vanish. That would confuse me because I would be sure what was still there and not....and it would be aggravating.  I've googled the question, but it keeps coming up with 7 drafts and 30 days. I've already done more than 7 and I don't want to lose them...worried

considering opening an Ebay store

I recently got an email from PayPal that a buyer bought my item. Usually, I get two emails- one from PayPal AND eBay. However, this time, it was not the case. The item listing was also still present and marked Active on my "Active" tab. It was almost like the buyer never bought the item. But when I choose to edit the quantity of the item, the listing says 0 and 1 sold. I only put 1 up for listing. How do I fix this, and should I be worried if this is a scam?

Member To Member Support question

I sold an item. The invoice was automatically sent out to the buyer. I did not hear from the buyer within the first 24 hours, so I sent an email. No response to the email. So I just called him this morning. He told me that he bought the item for his son. I explained to him that regardless of who he bought it for, it needed to be paid for. He said Just Put it back on ebay! Seriously! So.... what are my next steps? I obviously don't want anyone else to go through this with this buyer.  If I cancel the sale, can I still do a Second Chance Offer? I've never had this happen before, so don't know how it works.  And I think it is horrible, that I cannot leave him negative feedback!
