Help identify potttery

Found these two vintage toy steam engines in an estate sale and don't know a thing about them. I see no makers name of any kind. They are made of cast iron & tin.

They look like they were working engines at one time. I am guessing 1950's era?  Any help as always will be much appreciated.

I have ordered an item (4mm Thin Wrist Mouse Pad Sponge Mat Mice Pad Optical/Trackball Mouse Blue Black) from the seller tmallkey when it was listed in 29th June 2015. I have placed the order in the same day. But when I see the item, it shows me that it was not yet shipped.

Order Status Snapshot

 

I sent 2 messages to the seller, yesterday and today asking for the reason, but he hasn't even responded. What should I do now?

Order is not marked 'shipped' for 3 days

 

Bought it at an estate auction, marked "underwood new york". I know Underwood and Underwood made prints. Could be someone a famous, but I don't know people from the 20's that well.

New to eBay Daily Chat for Friday July 3

I am planning to get rid of these Bakelite items.  don't wear them and they are just collecting dust, so might as well be rid of them.

 

 I am going to sell them here on eBay, Etsy is dead when it comes to Bakelite.

 

Do folks think it is better to sell them as a lot of Bakelite or to try to sell carved ones as a separate lot, a spacer lot and so on?

 

Is summer a good time to sell these, or is there a summer slump here?

 

I've checked and see that some Bakelite lots do quite well. (Around $700) I got these for very good prices and have very little invested in these.

 

Just wondering what long time sellers here would advise.

 

Thanks.

I want to list this Egyptian revival bracelet but I can't figure out what is going on with the center stone.  It looks like it has something growing on it--it is smooth and black underneath with a crackle like coating on some of the top.  Has the coating just worn off the part where the black is exposed or is there some disease or something attacking the stone? I have tried to peel more of the coating off but it seems to be stuck fast. Any ideas are welcome!

I've had this purse for over 20 years. Purchased it at a consignment store under the impression that it was a real Coach. Now, I'm not sure. The straps are sewn onto the sides. The flap has a magnetic snap on it. The Creed is impressed onto the inside (not a seperate patch) and reads, "Coach Leatherware. This is a Coach bag, U.S. made out of a completely natural gloved tanned cowhide. The scars, scratches, veins and wrinkles are natural markings characteristic of full grain leather. Made in the United States. No. 0711-316.

Measuremens are 7-3/8" length, height (not including straps) 6-1/2" and width 2-3/4."

Would like to sell it since I haven't used it in 10 years but don't want to list it as real if it's not. Thanks for any help on this.coachpurse 001.JPG

Selling question

I was making a pair of earrings this evening and needed a red bead of some kind so I pulled out the "RED" storage box to sort through it for the right bead.  Yeah, it SOUNDS organized doesn't it, yeah not.  Anyway I had a baggie with two necklaces and a bracelet made of small red glass beads, all three different.  As I looked at the bracelet I realized the beads weren't glass.  I don't know what they are.  They're not agate carnelian as there's no translucency to them.  The color is a tomato red and the beads have almost a grittyness to them when I rub them against my teeth.  They're not perfectly round, each is slightly different and they tend to have little depressions in them.  The clasp is unusual as well; I've never seen one quite like this.  DBL is printed on the back of the clasp.  Of course searching by DBL brings up double everything since DBL is a common abbreviation for double.  Does anybody have any thoughts on this?  I came in a lot I bought years ago.

Hello fellow ebay mellows, 

 

Sorry if this is TLDR, but I couldn't find similar info on this exact topic, so hey.

 

This is not an attack towards eBay, rather just something I felt needed to be shared as I thought it was kind of funny. 

As a small time seller, when someone buys something from my online store, it makes me feel like a million bucks (or like the $8 I just made after fees).

When eBay started giving out shipping discounts, it made me feel like double... I mean think of all the fine things I could charge less for to hopefully generate more sales. 

 

However, I do like to think of myself as a curious type, so I asked myself, "Why am I getting these discounts?" 

No immediate answers came to mind.
Anyways, months pass by, and I eventually leave this curisoity of the topic locked somewhere in the back of my mind. 

 

Until today! 

 

I recently sold an item with a total weight of less than 5 oz. and I charged $2.50 for First-Class USPS service.  

The eBay discount dropped the actual cost from $2.70-something, down to $2.23 (something around there; i just can't remember atm).

 

Anyways, I went to my Account Activity page and noticed that for that sale I got charged the exact same percentage as the discount on shipping but as a Final Value Fee on shipping. 

 

 

THE DISCOUNT IS A LIE

 

 

I don't know how deep this goes as far as FVF so if you have any findings on this matter, please share them.

sorry for the long post here's a cool mouse chillin Smiley Happy

The July-August issue of the Stamp Insider, journal of the Federation of New York Philatelic Societies, is online and available for free download in PDF format or viewing online with page turning. It is available in both PDF and HTML5-friendly format at:

 

http://www.stampinsider.org

 

The cover story is “New York Pneumatic Tube Mail” by Steve Swain. The system, which moved mail in 25-pound steel canisters between the city’s five boroughs, opened in 1897. Its final remnants were shut down in 1953.

 

“Planes, Trains, Automobiles … and Horses?” that explores the connection between early transcontinental airmail service and earlier land routes, including the Lincoln Highway. Deltiologist Ruth Sabo shows that postcards were sometimes made of more than cardboard in “The Medium Was the Message.”

 

The featured video, related to Sabo’s article, shows a Tuck’s postcard record from 1929 being played on a restored vintage gramophone.

 

A new section — Virtual Programs — has been added to the Stamp Insider website. It displays PowerPoint club presentations that have been converted to PDF and HTML5 page turning. The first offerings are “The U.S. Postal Transportation Issue of 1981–1995” and “U.S. Private Die Proprietary Stamps” by Terry Blum of the Western Monroe Philatelic Society in Spencerport, New York. The Stamp Insider welcomes your contributions.

This silver plated piece measures 7" wide at the top and 6" tall. Near the legs is a round disk that is marked underneath with numbers and Meriden. There is also a circle mark with crossed hammers and  Wilcox (I can't make out the rest.) I was hoping someone might know what this was used for, or recognize the shape. I am thinking serving compote of some kind. The top is flat with the center being about 3/4 of an inch deeper. I thank you for any suggestions and for taking the time to look!

Help ID Siamese Cat Figurine

Hello Again Folks,

 

I recently purchased this EAPG caster set and I haven't been able to identify the pattern.  The caster base is all glass and it has 4 matching condiment bottles.  The pattern costs of a series of upsidedown "V"-shaped zippers with a fan underneath.  The stopper on one of the bottles may be a replacement (not sure), but it fits well.  The diameter of the base is approximately 4" and the width of the upper portion that hold the bottles is about 5 1/4". The bottles vary in height from 4 1/4" to 7 1/8" tall (including stopper).

I've searched the internet and the EAPG patterns web site with no luck.  Anybody recognize this pattern?  Thanks in advance!

Can anyone identify this glass lamp.  The pattern is similar to Atterbury and Imperial Zipper Loop but not exactly the same as either that I have seen in the Thuro book or found online. This lamp has a flat top and the loops are rounder or less oblong and appear to protrude more then the imperial. It measures 8 3/4" to the top of the brass collar which I believe is the Taplin collar and the round panelled and beaded base is 4 1/2" in diameter.  The clear glass flouresces green with uv light.  The hinged flip top burner is marked Pat.

Problem with a flash drive

Hi.  The maker's mark on the knife below is somewhat visable but for the life of me I can't make it out.  I've searched list of makers but had no luck matching and wondered if anyone here are PI's who can decipher the letters.  To me it looks like it starts with a fancy "G J or T" and ends with "le lle or ele" but I'm not a very good gumshoe.

 

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

 This is a message from buyer.
eBay told me 'your buyer has opened a case because the item they received was not as described.' but this return is due to buyer's misreading of the size and not my fault at all.
 
I had listed actual measurement of the bag in description table clearly.
Also the buyer bought 'Louis Vuitton PM bucket'. I have shipped Louis Vuitton PM bucket, same item in listing.
If the buyer wanted more bigger or taller one, buyer should buy 'Loius Vuitton bucket and SIZE GM'
 
THIS IS NOT MY FAULT AND I AM NOT SURE WHY I HAVE TO BEAR RETURN SHIPPING FEE.
PLEASE REVIEW THIS CASE FAIRLY.
 
PLEASE BACK TO ME ASAP.
 
Best regards,

ID NEEDED...HAND BLOWN GLASS DUCK

Hello!  I'm hoping someone has some knowlege about this particular vintage TV set.  I'm thinking of buying it for my Dad, who loves to restore old TV's.  But I know  very little about them, and the seller is asking quite a bit for it (they want $250).  I do not want to over pay.  They said it works, but I haven't yet tested it.  It's in pretty good condition with some wear to the veneer on top.  Is that a reasonable price for this TV in working condition?  Thanks so much for any help!!stewart.warner.tv.jpg

Good afternoon. I am hoping someone will recognize the bottom of this antique gravy boat. It is not stamped--it has raised letters & numbers. These are difficult to read--R4 is all I can make out with these ole eyes. The boat is obviously pretty old, has discoloration, crazing, etc. Thanks for any help! gina076.JPG072.JPG

Anyone recognize this mark?

So I did a bit of research on this mark, assuming it reads CW, and I once again need help. The internet seems to be conflicted between Colonial Williamsburg, and Charles Winston. But when I look up their marks, they don't look like this one. This one is more cursive like. 

Does this say CW? And if so, any clues? I can provide a picture of the piece if that would help. 

Happy 4th, everyone! And thanks as always for the help.

do you know the pattern of pyrex casserole

Hello Folks,

 

I recently picked up 4 Sandwich glass whale oil lamps.  I've been able to identify the pattern name on all of them except this one.  I've been through the "A Guide to Sandwich Glass - Whale Oil Lamps & Accessories" book by Barlow & Kaiser and searched the internet to no avail.  The lamp has a font with a band of thumbprints, each of which has a "cross" pattern inside the thumbprint.  The hexagonal shaped based is connected to the font with a glass wafer.  The shape of the base looks identical to other lamps I've seen attributed to Boston & Sandwich.

The lamp stands about 9" tall to the top of the collar.  The font is approximately 2 3/4" wide.  The hexagonal base measures 4" in diameter.  Anyone recognize this pattern?  Thanks in advance for your help!

Item condition: Sale date: Quantity: Price: Import charges:

I have a real issue with being reported for an unpaid item.  I tried to purchase a scarf from "forever18y" who advertised "worldwide shipping".... as you can see from her listing below, Singapore (where I live) is not listed in the list of countries: only " N. and S. America, Europe, United States, Australia"   So, false advertising about "worldwide" shipping.  I also tried to pay using the same credit card that I have used for E-Bay purchases for 12 years, only to get pushed to PayPal - whom I do NOT want an account with - and being told I cannot use that credit card any more (likely because it wasn't issued in the USA).  I tried my other credit cards about 8 times and they were rejected as well.  The credit cards/AMEX cards are fine and fully operational.  I am frustrated with E-Bay - I have been able to buy things for over a decade and now, with their "new improved" payment function, I now can't.    Also, sellers who claim "worldwide shipping" and then won't deliver, should be black-balled.   So, E-Bay put an "unpaid" complaint on my listing - which I want removed asap, and I want to be able to purchase with my credit cards, NOT with PayPal!

Please help get this info to E-Bay management - whose only means of contact is to telephone them..... very myopic - given the vast majority of their sales are from outside the USA.

Glass help with satin glass rose bowl

I'm going around in circles trying to figure out how to ACTUALLY contact an ebay customer service rep! I need to return a defective item and the seller won't respond.  I waited the appropriate number of days after sending a return request and now I'm trying to ask eBay to step in.  When I fill out the forms I end up being told. "You are not authorized to perform this action at this time."  Why am I not authorized and what the heck do I do now??  I sent the return request on June 24, 2015 and was told that June 29, 2015 was the time that I could request eBay to step in and help.  That doesn't appear to be the case because it's now July 4th and I cannot make that request!  Help!

Motors discussion

I bought these today at an estate sale - it was run by a business friend who was a antique dealer & who'd bought pieces from me I found in storage auctions. He told me he'd had these at least 20 years & always thought they were federal style eagle lamps until a friend told him that the little rise/hump on the top/back of the bird's heads was actually birds that were symbols of the nazi germany era.

 

Could this be true? They weren't expensive; $25 for the pair, but the plug appears like it could be from that time & the marble base isn't a cheap base, so I just want to be sure of what I have.

 

I appreciate any help.

Was looking at one of my sold items and clicked on shipping details, then saw this:

So cleared payment means (and I looked it up) means that once the seller has the funds in their account.

 

Since Paypal holds the payment as pending (not cleared) for up to 3 weeks, does that mean the seller is not suppose to ship until they have the funds in their account?

Happy 4th of July...

I posted this on the Selling Board and then discovered this board.

 

I've had this purse for over 20 years. Purchased it at a consignment store under the impression that it was a real Coach. Now, I'm not sure. The straps are sewn onto the sides. The flap has a magnetic snap on it. The Creed is impressed onto the inside (not a seperate patch) and reads, "Coach Leatherware. This is a Coach bag, U.S. made out of a completely natural gloved tanned cowhide. The scars, scratches, veins and wrinkles are natural markings characteristic of full grain leather. Made in the United States. No. 0711-316.

Measuremens are 7-3/8" length, height (not including straps) 6-1/2" and width 2-3/4."

Would like to sell it since I haven't used it in 10 years but cannot list it if it not real. Thanks for any help on this.

Vintage Coach Purse - Real or Fake?

I haven't used this forum before. I have just had my first bad experience selling on ebay. I have been a member for four years. What happened was I sold one of my kids old bicycles for 99p. I just requested pick up within 3 days on the item description. The buyer payed 99p via paypal but did not pick up the bike. After 3 days I asked her when she could pick it up. She said she could only do weekdays before 2pm. I explained that both my wife and I were at work and could she possibly do another time (I didn't want to take a morning of work to sell something for 99p) . I heard nothing back. After a week I emailed her again and asked if she still wanted it, suggested a refund as an option. No reply. 3 days later (late Saturday night) I received an email from her in block capitals 'STILL NO REFUND.?.' I replied by saying that I had not heard back from her but I would refund straight away. Which I did. Following this, you guessed it, I was left negative feedback. With only 68 transactions this brings my rating to 97%. I contacted ebay, who suggested that I contact the buyer to try and work it out. I did this, but just got a curt email back, telling me that I should have been more flexible. Not only that, I then got mocking emails where she was just sending me smily faces, followed by a mocking phonecall from a male voice on a withheld number saying 'hello mate, can I buy a bike for a quid?' Followed by laughter and then hanging up. I cannot reciprocate the bad feedback, and ebay have told me that they they cannot remove it. This experience has irritated me so much that I honestly feel like giving up selling on ebay altogether. I have emailed ebay about this several times, and am starting to feel like a pest. It's just that I am so irritated that people can behave like this. Surely this can't be ok can it? Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing? This experience has made me lose all enthusiasm for selling.

I just sold an "RCA 9" Color TV Model 09344 With Digital Converter Box And Remote For Both"  on ebay and I shpped on time.

Just before I shpiied the item I checked again and it was working fine.

The buyer asked me for the manual which I founded online and I emailed the link.

 

Today I got two emails from the buyer that the tv doesnt work and is only blue screen and no channels.

I sent an email back and I told her to follow the instructions on the manual and all te coded are on the paper that I have taped on tv.

 

Clearly she had no idea hoe to make the tv work and she emailed me back to tell me that the tv doesnt work.

She also provided me with a phone number to call her.

I thought this was the easies way to sort things our and I calles her.

She cleraly had no clue how to put the tv to work and she was complaining that she can not follow the manual.

Later she asked me to come and make the tv work and later she told me to come and pick the tv at her house next to the scool.

I dont know what she was smoking but I told her I leave 3 hours away from her in different states and I could not come and pick the tv.

 

But in the end of the conversation she told me to refund her money or she will open a case against me on ebay and leave a bad feedback.

 

Needless to say I told her to keep the item and I refunded her money.
I thought going on ebay,is not worthied because enay in 99% of the cases sides with the buyer.

I am not a person who complains and I always give the buyer the benefit of the boubt,but in this case I am 100% sure that the TV works fine,and she either has no clue how to operate the tv or has mental problems.
She asked me to refund the money in 5 minutes otherwise she will call ebay and open case against me.
It took me 5 minutes on the phone to convince her that I am at work and I will refund her moneuy after 1 hour when I get back home.

Sorry that I wrote the whole story,but I am very upset.

 

What have you done in similar cases?

Thanks in advance and happy 4th of July!

How to deal with unreasonable buyers?

18 hours since invoice sent. Still no payment. So I go to ebay help and find a video of Griff showing how to edit Site Preferences to open an unpaid case after 4 hours. Only the Site Preferences edit page Griff s hows looks little like the page I have. I assume ebay has taken away the seller option to edit this. Or maybe it's just me. Any way, this just illustrates what I hate about the "Help" button. Someone makes a video, or a help article with detailed instructions on how to handle a situation. Then the page is changed. The options are changed. The page is under a different secion. And no one ever bothers to change that "Help" page or video. So you have thousands of people running against this brick wall where the "Help" instructions to not match the "help" resource available. Is it so much to ask, especially from one who asks so much of the consumers of that "help"? If ebay were held to the standards they hold sellers ...

Hi folks,

 

I am pretty mad at eBay right now, I have been with them since 2000 and because I had low plant sales this month (17) and one customer requested a refund on a plant (1) a $6.00 sale, I slipped below standard, 5.35% and suddenly my listings are restricted.

I have 1800 feedback's, 100% positive and than this?

 

I am so upset, took down my store, canceled selling manager, payed early termination fees, don't care.

 

That percentage system sucks. I am also selling on Amazon and are in the 'Excelent' ranking.

Ebay is loosing it, sorry. What a mess.

Just had a buyer pay and they chose Parcel select. The package easily will go first class, at about a $3 savings. I usually refund the difference, but as of today when I try to do a partial refund, the Paypal form auto-fills to the full amount and gives me a notice that I can only do a full refund for this transaction. I am aware I could just send the buyer money seperately. I am wondering if this is a situation because of this specific transaction (buyer account settings, etc), or if this is a fallout effect from the eBay/Paypal seperation?

 

If the latter, this has repurcussions in many ways.....

Paypal not allowing partial refunds?

Hi! I have a problem. I purchased an item as a guest (I do have an ebay account now) and item arrived dried out. Cannot use it. I need replacement. When I see my order in previous email, I cannot see who seller was, it says "sorry, you are neither the buyer nor the seller for this transaction". What do I do, please?

I only have "Transaction Id" number.

 

Thank you.

Shipping & Returns question

Last week, I sold an incomplete Transformers Pay Doh set for $60, The buyer paid right away and I shipped it out like any other item , but yesterday I got a return request for the item, the buyer stated "I did not read the description well, can I request a return?" and this was after they had already opened a request, if they had asked in a message, I would have simply said "No". So I asked the buyer exactly why they wanted to return the item and they replied "my sister told me to buy this she said it was brand new, she wants a brand new set, not used" 

 

I have accepted returns in the past, because I can always feel what the buyer is going through if they get something other than what they wanted, but this person bought the item as described and now they say they didn't read the description, or somebody else read the description and they bought it, Now they tell me they thought it was "New".

 

I could understand if the listing was deceptive or misleading, or barely stated it wasn't new or complete, but the photo showed the parts scattered around to see them all, item condition was set to "used" and the title of the listing was "Play-Doh Transformers Dark of the Moon Autobot Workshop RARE - EUC!! Incomplete" the exact description was "

-this set is in excellent condition!

-it is missing the orange and blue car molds but otherwise is complete. 

-The Play doh is missing, one can is included but dried.

-The box is in great condition although there is a rip on the bottom"

 

I can't assume the item was complete, or "new" after reading that, and seeing the picture of the open box and the items scattered around is a giveaway that this item is in fact used and incomplete, and with minor box damage.

 

Another thing to put into consideration is the value of this item has declined since last month, while a complete set was going for $85 on average and an incomplete was going for $50-$60, it can now be had complete for $50 - 60, so I assume this buyer found another one for cheaper, but why should I step in to help them with their mistake? It was all their desision to buy the item at the price it was at, it was the current going price at the time, If I could charge a re-stocking fee, I would accept the return, But if I do, I will be taking a $30 - $40 loss on the sale since the item has depretiated value since the sale. 

 

The way I see it is just becuase they made a poor investment and in a short time it has showed, doesn't mean I should correct their mistake or whatever theyre trying to pull on me here. I do not believe they didn't read the description or thought it was "New" It just doesn't make sense.

 

For example if you bought a used No Controllers / No Cords, Nintendo Wii in 2006 for $300 (current value at the time) and then the stores all had them restocked, and you were able to buy another one, new, for cheaper, would you take advantage of the person you just bought the used one from and open a request on ebay and say "I didn't read the description", "I thought it was new, I want a new one",  Thats what I call being selfish and trying to get a return, and bothering the seller, due a a poor choice at the time.

I ran across this jewelry seller earlier. He seems to be a good seller, over 4300 feedback and only 1 neg, and 15 neutrals for the past year.

 

The thing is- he has one neg that he received in the past month. 

 

 

Yet here is his percentage:

 

Positive Feedback (last 12 months): 100%

 

He probably didn't deserve the neg, maybe he called to get it removed and something went wrong in the removal process. 

Has anyone seen this before?

 

I'm just curious. LOL

Sorry- Had to edit due to the feedback I pasted included links to the seller's true feedback page, hence it would name the seller.

Just HOW does "automatic bidding" work, in conjunction with a "reserve price" ? I bid substantially higher than highest showing bid on an item with item showing "Reserve Not Met." Bid was incremented to next-higher-amount, still below my HIGHEST amount, yet eBay showed "you're the highest bidder" (showing "next amount up" being MY bid.). Bidding closed out/auction ended, NOT ever showing my highest bid amount, only the "next step up" [below reserve) and auction ended without sale, still stating "Reserve Not Met." Should ebay have shown my HIGHEST amount? Should not THAT have set the next bidding point? I wonder whether I DID possibly meet the reserve, but for some reason auto-bidding did NOT do auto-incrementing. I even tried, with auction still running, inserting again my high bid, getting "you're already the highest bidder" yet the high-bid shown was only the next increment up, NOT my high bid. I wonder whether I got "cheated" out of a true sale? [item has been relisted, and currently is "below reserve" -- I've not bid]

Auto-bid "ignores" true high bid?

I am a bit stunned:

I just looked at my item # 281732204234,

and it shows my price at $198, but right beneath it  it also shows that the buyer can make payments of $33 for 6 month. Of course he has to apply.
I have never seen this under my listing price before, am I missing something or is this something new, again????

What I am wondering:What happens if the buyer does not pay the full amount to PP. is this another loophole for them to take the money back out of my account? 

I would not put anything past them....

eBay item number:

161732733188

What should I do to protect myself.  Their old address was confirmed on the payment email invoice. 
their feedback is 113.

I'm not getting a bad vibe but should the package be lost or damaged or the buy is dishonest and claims they never told me to send to a new address.
 
Thank you.

I bought a product from Canada (I live in Brazil) and it stopped when it crossed the border, it never came to me and the tracking number

sais that its being RETURNED to sender (the last information provided by Canada Post shows: Attempted delivery. Notice card left indicating where item can be picked up. The seller didn't pick up yet . The Ebay decided this case in the selller s favor!  The seller have all the money that I paid and the products that I bought. Look the answers that I have by Costumers Service: 

 

"I reviewed your email, and I understand that you claim not to have received your item. I'm sorry to hear there was a problem. I want to let you know about some options.

 

After reviewing the details of this case, it looks like the tracking information shows that the item was attempted to be delivered to your address. When a seller is able to show that an item was attempted to be delivered, we're not able to provide the buyer a refund. We also can't approve an appeal of a case decision when tracking shows this.  Please understand that buyers are responsible for keeping their address updated and making themselves available to receive the item. 

 

I understand your frustration. It's possible that the shipping carrier didn't deliver the notice, or may have delivered it to the wrong address. At this point, I recommend you contact the shipping carrier to see if there's more information on where the package is. You may also want to talk to neighbors to see if one of them got the notice by mistake.

 

To summarize, we can't provide a refund because tracking shows the item was attempted to be delivered. You may want to follow up with the shipping carrier and your seller.

 

We appreciate your understanding."

 

 

They are make a huge mistake! They are shipping to his address, not mine address!

What should I do know?

Automatic monthly billing

Why was this considered an "improvement"??? I think the feature of the extra "see ful description" button is terrible, and the small window that opens up is not showing as nice as the old way.... can anything be done to choose the way one's listing will display on screen?

NEW LISTING DISPLAY FORMAT IS HORRIBLE

I've been looking at these over a period of about a week and my number has bounced from 98% then down to 93% yesterday (bummer) and up to 100% today.  Sales have been up for me lately and the numbers have fluctuated more recently than when my sales were really lagging.

Anybody else see this happening?  Frustrating because when it dips I see that old TRS loss looming.

I have a n item listed and an Austrailian buyer interested. He says the listing will not allow global shipping. I did select shipping myself, may have something to do with it. I did not select "No international shipping' It dosen't seem I can go back to allow Ebay to choose shipping either.

How do I allow Global shipping program?

So i bought an Xbox One on Ebay from a seller for £200, a day later i realise i have a £80 Argos giftcard which i can use to get a brand new Xbox One instead for around the same price as the one from Ebay. The item has a 14 day refund so i contact the seller and i asked if i can return it, he replied saying that if i send it back to him i can get a refund. So i agree to this and i was going to send it as soon as i recieved it in the mail. 2 days after the delivery date i still haven't recieved it, i decide to get refund because it hasn't been delivered. So i cancel the return case and filled in the reason as 'I want a refund'. I go to open a refund case but it won't let me. I do a quick google search and apparently you're only allowed to have one case per item. What do i do now?! I haven't got the item and it won't let me do anything about it. I'm trying to contact the seller but he hasn't replied since.

Hi people!

 

I am kind of rusty at this online purchase world. I went and purchased some xbox one analog switch but when I hit the buy now I noticed I had my cousin address in the USA instead of mine in Mexico. I changed it alrady, and contact the seller, do you know if after changing the address he will see my updated address to send it there or should I cancel the order and redo it again?

 

Thanks

Shipping address

Hello,

 

I recently returned an item that I purchased through eBay from MasterDeals USA. The return was approved, I shipped the item, it was received, and I was notified on JUNE 30 that a full refund had been credited to my PayPal account. PayPal then messaged me saying that they had just sent the money to my Debit Card account. I used a Debit Card to purchase the item.

 

I have not received any refunds. There is nothing in my PayPal account, and there is nothing in my Debit Card account. 

 

I have no problem waiting, but I just was confused because they told me they had sent the refund and I wanted to make sure it hadn't gone to the wrong place or something.

 

Thank you to the commenter below.
