Hello,

 

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

 

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

 

Any help would be great and we appreciate all answers.

 

Regards

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

 

Hello Christa,

 

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

 

Hi Edited to protect buyer

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

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

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Thanks, Christa

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

Anybody else  have fios experience?

 

Just wondering....

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

Thank you so much!!!

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

Here are a few non-jewelry items I scored at a sale yesterday. Maybe the most unusual sale I've ever been to. THOUSANDS of items jammed into a house, being sold by the family. When I say thousands I am not exaggerating. I must have seen 40 Victorian silverplate pickle jars, for example, and maybe 200 cat figurines, this lady was a collector/hoarder ...but the house is immaculate and everything is spotless.

 

I am going back there this AM, but this is what I got for $30 yesterday. (No jewelry, unfortunately) -  portrait of the lady (need to research), a carved Indian  ivory figurine, tall sterling compote and a Bavarian hat pin holder (?)

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

This pitcher has several interesting characteristics and I am hoping some recognizes it.  It has a coin spot pattern in the glass. It appears to be cased Topaz over crystal.

Hi here is a yarn doll. The head and body are not styrofoam balls covered with yarn. The head seems to be a ball of yarns, the body has a muslin like covering over yarn and scraps of cloth. The hat is cardboard covered with yarn. It has a hanging yarn on top there. Its pretty big..perhaps a foot, foot and half.

 

For those reasons,  I'm thinking this is not a kit doll but made by hand in some other country,  but I could be oh so wrong!

 

Any thoughts on what country or region this may have come from or is suppose to represent? Or anything else..like age...keywords to use lol.   Thanks!

Hello, I think these were made by Fostoria, but can't find the pattern, so maybe I'm wrong about the maker.  I'll be the first to admit, I've been wrong before!  :smileywink:

The photo framed measures 22 1/4" by 18". The photo is matted and the signature is  on the mat. The opening in the mat for the photo measures 12 1/4" by 8". Any help with the signature is appreciated. Thanks, Kay

Well,  my Gotz creepy baby doll sold.

 

Before it sold,  I got two messages asking if it was haunted.  Then I got one message advising me it was definitely haunted  - the person remote viewed using a pendulim somehow... I guess.

 

Poor thing..I gave her a lecture on "Don't Mess with Spirits" which is ancient and good advice for anyone.

 

I'm thinking its violet eyes turned pink/red due to a manufacturing flaw.  

 

The person who finally bought it was interested in paranormal things, but I NEVER stated it was haunted or I saw, sensed, heard or felt anything unusual. In fact the opposite. 

 

Finally I got a lovely message  from another saying my wild eyed doll made her laugh. Amd that made me smile too :smileyhappy: nice lady.

 

I was just surprised  about the "is it haunted" messages.

Have you all had similar experiences?

O.K., I will go first. Today is the 19th. Based on last year's sales when we could list FP for free with promos, and the average sales thereof, by the 19th of each month I would have at least 20-22 sales. Alas, I only have 8 (not counting the 2 bids). So, the number of sales I am missing right now due to glitches, items hidden, outages, etc., is, 10-14.

 

How about you?

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

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

Hello

 

Trying to understand something. Bought something, returned it for a refund. Seller did a cancel request.

 

In his/her request she puts the reason as, "The seller says that you have purchased the item in error."

 

If I approve this request, does it count against our buying or a strike?


Why do they have so many reasons, which are the ones good and bad for buyers and sellers. Trying to understand all this before we go ahead and cancel the request.

 

When we cancel an item from selling, we just pick, "Buyer returned item for a refund." Not sure why all these sellers start choosing the wrong or a random reason.

Thanks.

Selling discussion

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Bidding & Buying question

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

 

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

Selling discussion

I was talking to NYS Sales Tax on the phone, but being later in the day after coming home from work, I was shut down after being transferred to a Specialist, simply because they close at 4:30. I was on quite a while already, and learned this much:

 

1 - I MUST collect NYS Sales Tax - not an option;

 

2 - I MUST charge and remit sales tax on Shipping & handling;

 

3 - I cannot coninue to use a blanket 8.75% (like I was told to do by a Consultant from The Small Business Bureau in Buffalo, NY);

 

4 - Their Answer Specialist said Ebay DOES have a program with jurisdictions, because they work with many sellers on Ebay;

 

5 - I cannot continue or I will get into trouble (knew that);

 

6 - My saga continues with them tomorrow as they will also be walking me through the new Web Sales Tax File;

 

7 - BTW: YES! I have had a ST# for years, but claimed zero because I did not actually go into business until opening an Ebay account;

 

8 - Things are different and I wonder if in the meantime any of  you are Sellers collecting for NYS, and could tell me where I could find out about expanding my one tax rate for NYS into the new jurisdictions. I do have a hard copy of them, but how do you manage it?

 

Thank you.

My Account question

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

 

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

Selling discussion

I bidded on a fascinator and won mostly because I don't think many ppl wear them. The seller answered my questions prior to me paying the day I won it I paid. It's actually been not 12 days. It's been since the 11th to now. The 20th. The seller stated that it would be sent within 2 days in the shipping description. Has not answered my messages so far on if it's been shipped, and if I'll get it before a certain date. This is quite important that I get it on time because of the event I need it for. And if it's not I would very much like to cancel my order as to get another one. But the seller still isn't responding. What should be my course of action.

Payments discussion

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

 

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

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

Starting an eBay Business question

Is there a time limit to how long a buyer has to ship back my item or respond to me when I agree to refund his money once I receive my item back. He opened a case saying he wants a refund but has not responded in a couple days. Was just wondering if there is a time limit he has to ship it back in? Or if he has to put up tracking in a certain amount of days? Does the case expire or anything? Can someone please explain how this all works? Thank you!

Shipping & Returns question

Hi, like subject says.

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

 

Dear zg-drazen,

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

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

Payments question

I think I screwed up royally and my International Buyer may wind up paying the price both figuratively and literally.  I used to sell on Ebay several years ago, internationally too, these days I'm basically a buyer.  Cleaning out some closets recently and decided to throw a few random items out on Ebay to sell without updating and educating myself first on many changes that have occured with Ebay since I last sold.  Big mistake on my part.

 

About a week and a half ago I listed a horse sculpture.  I intended to sell this horse only to U.S. buyers.  During the listing process I checked (or) unchecked the wrong box and inadvertently made my item available for bidding and shipping Worldwide.  By the time I caught the mistake it was too late and a Canadian buyer won my auction.  He paid immediately via Paypal.

 

I tried unsuccessfully several times to print out my shipping labels via my home computer.  I just couldn't get the labels to print.  Frustrated, I decided to go to my local library and print the labels there using a public computer (which I was hoping wouldn't turn into a big problem but it did).  While at the public compuer, and after answering a few simple security questions correctly Ebay thought I was a hacker? and temporarily suspended me from printing labels for 48 hrs. as well as temporarily suspending my PayPal acct.

 

I decided to just write the Canadian buyer's street address on the box myself, walk next door to the post office and just pay cash to ship my item but there was a problem.  Now, the Erlanger, KY - Pitney-Bowes address shows up only.  I cannot view the buyer's Canadian address or check Paypal to see if its listed there.  I phoned Ebay Customer Service twice (back-to-back) spoke to 2 different reps (both were in a foreign country?  I could hardly understand them) and asked how I could obtain my buyer's direct mailing address. 

 

Customer Service assured me I didn't need the buyer's Canadian address - just include the reference # and ship directly to Erlanger, they'll do the rest.  I wasn't really comfortable with that answer so I ended the call and decided to phone Ebay back to get a new rep and a 2nd opinion.  I got the same answer again.

 

I expressed my concern that shipping cost to KY was only $6 and the shipping cost to Canada was at least double that in price, so how was the rest of the shipping cost going to be paid by me?  I didn't want my buyer in Canada to have to pay $6-$7 in shipping fees/COD charges on his end.  "No problem" customer service said.  "Ship to the center in KY and your PayPal account will be charged at a later date."  This seemed ??? to me but I went ahead and shipped to Erlanger anyway.  Now, after reading these boards I regret it.

 

The item is in transit to Canada but no funds from my PayPal account have been deducted. 

 

Any feedback / suggestions would be more than helpful (and sorry for this long post!)

I am having a problem getting my photos to utilize the full space provided by ebay in my listings.

I am using a professional Nikon D3200 camera and my photo resolutions are around 6000x4000 in JPEG format. I can use either a medium or low setting, all of which are much higher than standard digital cameras.

I am using the quick listing feature and it doesnt seem to matter if I crop and adjust the images prior to adding them, or if I use eBays quick crop and adjust feature I have had no success. I read the picture guidelines and all it states is to use an image of at least 1600x.

Here is an example of one of my items where the picture isn't displayed fully in the space provided. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable can help me resolve this issue. Thank You in advance.
