Price Reduction "Requests" after the sale. I expect to get a few of these from Newbies and the occassional B*tthead, but not from long-term professional sellers. I recently ran a bunch of American Girl stuff - which is one of the catagories that DOES still sell quite well here. Almost everything sold, and most was paid for immediately. I ship USPS Priority on all items such as this, with a fixed price shipping price of $6 stated at every auction.  A buyer in Hawaii, who is a major seller with American Girl stuuf, bought one item then waited two days to contact me, and the "apologized" that she had not yet paid and requested a reduced price by shipping it instead for $3, 1st class, in a bubble wrap mailer (this is a porcelain item and quite delicate), instead of the $6 as listed. Inferred is "ship it this way or else". A visit to her feedback shows that she is doing this with most everything she buys. A few pastes from her "feedback left" file:


Positive feedback rating

Great Seller! Went the extra mile for me with shipping. Great merchandise. Love!


Positive feedback ratingPerfect! FAST shipping. Excellent seller. Thanks for working with me on shipping
Positive feedback ratingDarling! Great seller! Worked with me so nicely. Thanks for everything! A+++++
Positive feedback ratingGreat set! Thanks for working with me. Great seller! A++++
Positive feedback ratingGreat Seller! Went the extra mile for me with shipping. Great merchandise. Love!


And it goes on and on. Obviously, this is one way she gets additional discounts on all her purchases AFTER the sale.  


I responded that I shipped the way I do because it provides insurance, protects the item properly, and would not change the shipping terms AFTER the auction had closed, and more importantly - stated it wasn't fair to other bidders to change the terms of the auction after the sale. She has not responded back, and now I have opened a NPB case against her (she normally pays promptly according to her feedback...I assume she is not happy with us not complying with her "request").


Yes, I'm now expecting retaliation and the big red donut, but for me its a matter of principal. I have pre-emptively reported her request and prior conduct to Ebay as it technically is a violation of Ebay policy to even request modification after the sale. My question to all is: What would you do? Give in or stand your ground? Is it ethical for her to do this?

My Account question

I know this is NOT the Figurines Board, but am posting here in the hopes that someone may be able to help. I've posted in three other places with NO responses over the past month.


I am not a figurine collector but am oddly attracted to dolls and figurines with a German face...In fact, I consider them works of art. Grafenthal (figures in center & right) is a favorite.


I also love this style light wedgewood blue / white / gold figurine, pictured on the left. I have seen these gold wheat? markings on the thigh of many similar figurines.


Can anyone tell me anything about this style? This particular figurine has no markings that I can readily see, but does have a gold capital letter K on the inside of the rear rim. The underside is hollow and unglazed, like Grafenthal figurines. Any ideas? I do greatly appreciate your responses.

Can anyone tell me what I have here? The photo? print? has an edge like it was added to the back paper, like a photo or print (it kinda feels like a old phoyo), and the bottom says:



I was able to translate the last part  PHOTOGRAPHISCHE GESELLSCHAFT to Photographic Society,  ZUERST DAS KUSCHENN TRANSLATED TO The First KUSCHENN - But nothing translates for Kuschenn


The frame makes me think this could be from 1879 as marked (last pic).


Any help or idea on what I have here would be greatly appreciated.

Been pondering this six frame editorial cartoon trying to make sense of the point Hamilton was trying to convey. Seems to me it deals with the early 20th century NY insurance scandles but I don't understand who the "Old Billion Boodles" character is lampooning. Henry B. Hyde of Equitable Life?

Chalkware Bookend With Reg number

I found a set of these goblets.  Checked the R site and found a couple, 1 Tiffin and 1 Weston, that are similar but not the same.  Does  anyone know who might have made these?  They have a vertical optic with 12 vertical panels.  Measures 6 1/2" high and hold 10 oz. (12 oz. to the very top).  The do NOT glow under a black light.  The previous owner had a sticker on them that said "green depression goblet, wedding gift 1939."   Thanks!





Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

At first glance I thought this was 1960's or so, I think the mesh gave me that idea.

After looking at it more I am thinking 1940's or so ? The mount metal tests as sterling and the high table rhinestones make me think it might be that old.

It's marked 'Vogue' with another word but I'm not sure that word is 'STERLING', it looks like something else.

I see a similar mark on RCJ but that word is 'STERLING', this looks a bit different.

Unusual design for a 1940's piece but I want to be sure of it's age.

Hi all.


Anyone who can identify these beautiful, I believe antique ornaments.


They are quite small - only not quite 2" in total length for the long ones, and just over 1" diameter for the round ones.  A bit heavier than I usually see: they weigh in at about a 1/2 ounce for the round ones.  I have about 2 dozen in various shapes and colors.  I think they are really beautiful. 


Any information will be much appreciated.  I did look thorugh a multitude of "antique" ornament listings, and didn't find any quite the same.DSC06230.JPGDSC06231.JPGDSC06229.JPGDSC06228.JPG

Fashion discussion

I have a gorgeous vintage Muff made of Ocelot fur/skin and black silk that I have been trying to sell on Ebay for a long time and they keep restricting me from selling it even though there are so many others Ocelot's fur postings on Ebay.

So I called CS to find out why mine was removed and the others weren't and then I contacted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's to see if I could get a permit to sell it, because honestly. I do not want it in my house. 
The ocelot, Leopardus pardalis, is protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA), 16 United States Code, Section 1538.  Regulations that implement the ESA make it unlawful to import, export, take, transport, sell, purchase, or receive in interstate or foreign commerce any species listed as endangered or threatened.
Additionally, the prohibition against the sale in interstate or foreign commerce of any endangered species also applies to "pre-Act" wildlife.  Pre-Act means endangered species, parts or products which were held prior to the enactment of the ESA, on December 28th, 1973, or the date the species was listed. 
However, I have been informed that if I can confirm that the ocelot muff qualifies as pre-Act under the ESA, there is nothing in the ESA that would prohibit me from possessing this pre-Act ocelot muff or selling this pre-Act ocelot muff within the State where I reside.  
*There is no formal certification process to authorize the sale of this pre-Act ocelot muff.              
*There is no minimum acceptable proof, per se, to confirm that this ocelot muff is pre-Act under the ESA.    
THERE IS AN Endangered Species Act pre-Act affidavit requirement that I can get through their office but that it's only necesary to by submitted if a particular office of the ESA asks me to do so. So if you own an Ocelot fur posted to sell, be prepared to be asked to submitt such affidavit if requested.
However, it must be emphasized that the manner in which I sell this pre-Act ocelot muff cannot in any way extend beyond the State where I reside.  In other words, any manner of selling this pre-Act ocelot muff that would advertise its sale beyond that State, such as a newspaper with a national distribution or the internet, would be considered interstate commerce, and would be prohibited under the ESA. This means, I can only sell my Great-Aunt's Ocelot Muff to a Floridian, and who in the Sunshine State need their hands to be warm?
And in addition, I must confirm with MY State that there are no restrictions on selling products manufactured from endangered species within MY State under Florida State law.   So I have to contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission  for further information on this matter so I decided that this beautiful kitty needs to go back to where it belongs and I'm going to donate this ocelot muff to the National Wildlife Property Repository so they can give it to various organizations for educational purposes.   
Thank you Ebay for taking my Ocelot Muff off and for your cooperation in complying with the regulations that help protect fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats in our wonderful land of the USA, as I and my family have learned a great deal about this beautiful ENDANGERED animal and I can't wait to see all those many other OCELOT Fur postings dropping off Ebay as mine did.

Best regards,

Vintage Ocelot Fur Muff, taken off!

This figurine is gloss white porcelain, 4" X 6" X 1 1/2" and marked on the base with a crown over S in a shield and a 'hard-to decifer' word... ---zzndorf ??  It was labelled 'Sitzendorf' on the price tag but the mark doesn't match any Sitzendorf mark that I could find though there are similarities.  The style is not like any other items identified as Sitzendorf either.   Is this a fake or is it some other known maker?


I'm drawing a blank here and would appreciate any help.

Please Help Identify...

I like to use Club Aluminum as they are easy to clean, no teflon to deal with (usually, some recent "Classic" pots did have teflon), and cooks food more evenly than typical cheaper pots and pans plus it doesn't rust like cast iron. There's a reason some of them are still selling over $50 used on eBay.  Quite often when I go to yard sales, garage sales, flea market, and Goodwill I keep an eye out for them. I also check eBay for once in a while bargain price.  In all the time I've checked and watched, the dutch oven were always 3 quart or bigger in size.


A few days ago I found what seemed like a very small dutch oven.  Measuring 7.5" by 3" tall and calculated at about 115 cu in which comes to about 2 quarts max. It looks absolutely tiny next to my 3 and 4 quart dutch ovens and even some of the pots with handles I have.


top view of the dutch oven


side view of the dutch oven


bottom view


Since I had never seen small dutch oven even on eBay, I was wondering if it could be a display model or something? This one barely covers the *small* burner and without the usual handle I'd have to use mittens to hold it or move it. But there'd be risk of catching my mitten on fire if I tried to hold it while stirring something so that's why I thought at first it wasn't regular production dutch oven.


Information on the defunct Club Aluminim (and Mirro who bought them years ago) line is scare on internet.  I still haven't figured what all sizes and styles have been released.

I'm looking for help identifying this stemware. I think my key is in the stem, but so far I've come up empty.

The stem is faceted, and right about midpoint, the facets rotate for about an inch, and then shift back. They have an intaglio cut flower alternating with a dot with 3 swag lines and 3 more dots underneath. They have a wide optic. They measure 6 1/2" tall and hold 8 ounces to the rim. 

Does anyone recognize the maker of this goblet? If I could find the pattern, that would be a bonus, but finding out who might have made these would be great.

Does anyone have any additional information about these dolls and outfits or should I just call it a day and auction them off as a vintage Barbie doll lot?


Thanks as always.........................

Does anyone know who the artist of this painting is? It's signed in the lower right, but the signature is in hebrew.

As well done as this is, I figure the artist has to be known by someone!

Found these 2 unusual things at same place & bought them; even though I have no idea what they are!

Can anyone tell me what the heck this 1st thing is? A incense holder? (But made of wood?) - Maybe it meant rupees, but it had a $138 price tag on the bottom!

2nd is obviously a carved & painted statue holding a mirror - but googling that turns up nothing!  Can someone give me a different name or description to try?

Also, I assume she is from India or Hindu because of the jewel in on her forehead, but she is also naked - which made me think 'native' or Hawaiian (I don't know why Hawaiian, it's what came to mind!) - Isn't that unusual, even as a joke?

Thank you!

So I picked these two little guys up today at a local resale shop (hence sticker residue in one pic).  I can't seem to find anything about them.  I've dug through Google and eBay and haven't even found a pic of either of them.  Anyone on here got any ideas?  The kissing bunnies one has a marking/signature on the bottom but I can't find anything about it.  The other one doesn't have any markings on it but based on the appearance appears to be by the same artist.  They look green in the pic but are actually more blue/teal than green.  


I don't know if these are handmade by someone in art class (would have to be very skilled) or if these are a famous and rare piece of porcelain.  If anyone's got any info please let me know.

Today I went to the post office for shipping the priority international package. I have printed out the prepaid lebel from ebay .After I handed to the clerk with my item, she put my item on the scale and then told me that my prepaid postage was wrong . She said the shipping cost I paid was much lower than what she saw on her computer. I tried to explain her that I got discount from ebay.com. She said she has no idea about that. I should buy and pay at usps.com only.


I contacted ebay. Ebay advice me to void the postage and then go and pay for post office price. This seems not help me much. I think all seller know that the shipping discount is part of our profit.


Anybody have any idea to help me with this problem? Thank you very much.

I have a buyer who was slow to pay and contact me after the sale.  She is claiming that her bank account was hacked and she can't pay for the item and is asking for a cancellation.  II'm not sure if it is buyers remorse or something may have happened.  Is it worth the trouble of opening an unpaid item case or is cancellation the best way to move forward?  This is a 300 dollar item...thanks for any help.

Buyers remorse or truth?

I don't want to turn all my entire feedback to "private", because I want to sell, and I have all good feedback anyway.


I buy (and will sell) lumber, guitar parts, car parts, camera equipment - and occasionally buy something for my wife or daughter. I have asked some sellers for no feedback on items I purchase for my wife or daughter. (Feedback for purses or skirts aren't going to help me sell lumber.)


Some sellers listen, a few don't. A seller right now has told me they use automated feedback, everyone gets the same feedback, and it is triggered when I pay. They are being lazy. So, I'm, waiting to pay until they agree not to leave (good, but generic) feedback that I don't want. Do I have any "rights" within ebay to demand no feedback? (remember, it would be good feedback, I just don't want it)

Request NO feedback, seller refuses

I have a Buyer that just left negative feedback for a transaction that happened more than 60 days ago. How do you find a sale that occur past 60 days? I want to look up their address and tracking number to try to resolve the issue.



They claim they never received it. I have made it a policy to wait until the tracking number says delivered before I leave positive feedback as my own personal check to make sure my items have arrived. 


Has anyone been successful having ebay remove negative feedback? The buyer never contacted me about the issue. I would have done my best to either given a refund and sent the item again or contacted the postal service. I don't think Ebay should allow Buyers to immediately leave negative feedback. I take pride in providing good customer service. 


Thank you for any help!

Anyone else having problems? I sold a couple things in the last 20 minutes, they show paid and there is a valid PayPal payment page but the MONEY is not showing in my balance.

Paypal Payments Not Showing Up

Seems that if you refuse the new buyer initiated cancel transaction request, if the buyer doesn't pay you aren't able to open an unpaid item dispute.  Yet the message, when you attempt to open one, is that the SELLER has requested to cancel. 

In a related question: So we are removing all aspects of personal responsibility from eBay now?  :smileysad:

What is the most professional way to deal with a bidder who wins one of my auctions, but then tries to argue the price AFTER he wins it? I honestly thought this was against Ebay policy, not only because it's very unethical (Anyone with no regard for the rules can beat out the other bidders by bidding higher than the rest, but then argue the price after he wins), but because it's a waste of the seller's time. If sellers wanted to go that route, there are 'Best Offer' options to set up, but in an 'auction', the idea is in fact to sell to the highest bidder. Additionally, Ebay automatically takes their percentage based on what the winning bid actually is after the auction ends, so if you were to really charge the bidder less, you'd be losing even more due to Ebay's cut. I've had people try to argue prices while an item is up for auction several times which is annoying enough (my selling policy is very clear in my auctions), but now that I've encountered a second case where someone is trying to argue the price AFTER they won the auction, I'm starting to wonder if there is something more I'm suppose to be doing to prevent it. It's trouble enough dealing with buyers who don't pay through Unpaid Item Cases and having to wait through them until the buyer either finally pays or having to relist the item all over again when the clock runs out. Any ideas?

First I opended a case to report "haven't received this item" because seller sent with wrong name. After I got the order, I closed this case. But shortly I found out that item "isn't as described". I tried to open new case but it only allow me to send mesage to seller don't allow me open the second case right away. What can I do now? Please help! Thanks

Selling question

Hi All, 


I sold something this morning....YAY! I guess. I am a bit concerned though. I am in the United States and don't sell internationally because most of what I sell is electric and there are voltage and plug differences between countries. I don't want somebody to use these items with a voltage converter and get zapped or burn up their applicance, which is why I always check "No International Shipping," which I did for this listing (totally verified after I saw that the shipping address for this). How did this order get through? Why did eBay allow this order? 


It turns out this buyer is just in Canada, and I believe we have the same voltage and plugs between the two countries, but I am still concerned. I had to cancel two different international orders for the same item last month. I thought I had opted out of international shipping then too, both times!!! Though it was clear when I looked back at the listings, I hadn't done this correctly. It was very uncomfortable. One temporarily refused to cancel. One wasn't immediately refunded the obscene amount of customs fees. Now, I am extra careful to click the "No International Shipping" option, but what good does that do if eBay will still allow international buyers to purchase my items?


Can anybody shed some light on this?

On my selling account I received a soft positive, the widget I sold had the dimensions in the title, the description AND a photo of the item next to a standard ruler!

 The feedback the buyer left was a positive but it said "totally useless item, too small". I know alot of buyers dont read the description or look at photos.... but this seems crazy, esp. since the widget is well known. Surprizingly he did not ding any of my stars. Is this a SNAD coming? The item was under $10.00. I'm confused as to if I should do anything or not.....wait for a SNAD, respond to feedback, ignore........Any thoughts? Thanks!

I get it... People where avoiding fees on their final item values by jacking up shipping rates. Me, like many other people, charge ACTUAL cost. I  have a scale, I print labels at home. I set my box out on the porch of my house, USPS gets it.  dont jack up the price. So eBay just punishes everybody across the board instead of kicking the folks off who where unethical to start with. Is that right? Im sure this a dead horse on here by now, but its **bleep**.

Please help with ID this thing

Buyer paid for 2 items seperately.. I put in one box..Printed label... went to enter the tracking number on second item and received this message.

" The tracking number you entered is already being used for another transaction and cannot be applied for this transaction. Please enter the correct tracking number for this order.

A valid tracking number will allow your buyers to track the status of their order and know when to expect delivery. Plus, it will help protect you if the buyer files an Item Not Received claim."



When did this new policy start?

Then if she buy it now and I ship it tommorow ‘Thursday” can she get it by Monday USPS priority mail envelope?

I have a beautiful handbag that is a XXIo Secolo Italy, with black suede interior, silver tone hardware a fold over magnetic snap closure and a pocket inside with a high quality zipper (marked YKK). This hand bag is in such a great condition that I can't tell if it is a vintage reproduction by Secolo or it is true vintage. I have seen some purses made by Secolo from Laurent Effel St. Barth but I do not know if these purses are before or after mine. Can anyone help me with a date or some info? Thanks so much!

Nov. 2nd...Daylight Saving Time Ends

Has anyone noticed something peculiar over at the "signed designer Stanley Hagler" search... something drastic has happened to the prices and designs of the jewelry posted...not all, but many.


Just 6 weeks ago it was flying off the shelves and now well, I just don't know...there has been controversy since Hagler's death regarding who, what and how this or that person owns the rights to his company's name...but this has been going on for years...is it Mark Mercy or Ian St. Gielar?  Now that Stanley Hagler has passed away (1996) and St. Gielar also has passed (2007) who is designing and constructing jewelry under SH's name...i happen to have 2 sets of jewelry bought by myself in the early 1990s and it doesn't look at all like "some" that is listed today....so, I'm asking does anyone but me see a problem and if there is a problem what is it...LOL

how to find products bar code

A buyer and I have been communicating through messages. She wants to buy three of my items, and I have quoted her a combined shipping cost. I told her to just "Buy It Now" for each of the three, and not to pay, and I will send her a Paypal invoice with the lower shipping cost. She said when she tries to Buy It Now on the first auction, it takes her directly to Paypal to pay. The item isn't showing up as Purchased yet on my end. How can I do this without ending the auctions and sending her an invoice?
