Could anyone help me identify this? I thought vintage mechanical pencil/lead holder because of the metal tip+4 slots but inside are teeny drill bits the size of sewing needles.
I've researched mechanism pencils, handheld drills, even went to a pencil blog+sent my pix+question only to receive an auto reply that they don't reply:/.
There are no markings other than made in the usa.
I was going to list as 'vintage unique mechanical leadholder pencil with needle like drill bits' but that doesn't sound correct.
I though it maybe a spiral pencil where the drill bits push the lead down but there are soo miniscule that it couldn't work that way.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
So here is the story.
I tried to sell my laptop. List it under fix price (buy it now) or best offer.
The buyer offer above my fix price and I accept it. He immeditely send this message to me :
|I have paid. Is this your first time selling? eBay is holding the funds. When you provide a tracking number, and you put it in eBay, they will track the package and release the money before it gets to me. You HAVE to put the tracking number in eBay or they can't track it and release the funds. Understand?? Please ship express|
He included two screen shot photos, one indicate he paid, another with his address.
However, on my side, my ebay account, it says I am still awaiting for payment. AND "Buyer has not completed check out," and "Buyer has marked item as paid." See below:
I have not received anything from either ebay or paypal regarding the payment. upon carefully I realize this might be scam so I call ebay and confirmed that HE DID NOT PAY.
Plus his account is brand new, meaning 0 feedback, signned up just before trying to buy my laptop.
I insist that I will not ship until he go through the payment process with ebay, and then he insisted he paid.
So what do I do then?
This shaft appears to be made of hardended steel and is just over 14" long. There two slots / keyed grooves on opposing sides of the piece. The other end has an attachment that looks a lot like a socket but its interior walls are smooth. The attachment is affixed to the shaft by two allen head bolts.
YouTube reivewers with a massive audience badmouthing eBay - Jun 11th, 2015
3:25 -"You can even find them cheaper on eBay, but I bought mine through az because eBay feels a bit sketchy, while az gives me a gaurentee of money back"
He goes on to talk about what we sellers have been saying for the longest, Chinese sellers being shown before/next to Americans/Europe sellers.
3:35 -"While most others are slow shipping from China"
eBay, if you're reading this, can you now listen to not only you sellers, but your buyers as well?
Let the people in their respected country sell what the Chinese want to sell, as it used to be.
More jobs for Americans, more competition since we aren't having to compete with ridiculously low prices due to subsidized shipping or sellers being manufactureres, etc.
P.s. good thing this guy isn't buying from eBay, watch from 3:00 to find out why.

AUGUST GOTTA MAKE MONEY SUPPORT GROUP
August is finally here - it's a great transition month for eBay Sellers. And it's also a great month for beach lovers and winding down on Summer fun. If you haven't taken the time this summer to visit a beach, go and do so. Relax, catch some rays, and recharge before the busy part of the month arrives.
August is a great time to start thinking about the upcoming Holiday season that will soon be upon us. Get your fall items prepped and ready to list as the sales will soon be picking up as the weeks go by. We welcome all and hope you will stop in and visit with us.
For Luck we have Magic Listing Dust
For Support we have the Green Goddess
And of course we have George for another month
The Gotta Make Money Support Group is here to help and support each other in Making Money, so here are some suggestions to keep the money flowing. We've culled these from years of experience and hope you'll be helped by them!
1) LIST IN A VARIETY OF FORMATS - Try some regular auctions, auctions with Buy it Now, Fixed Price, and Fixed Price with Best Offer. Not only will you get a better idea what works for YOU, but you'll offer buyers a variety of buying options.
2) OPTIMIZE YOUR LISTINGS – By using the free Terapeak Keyword app (find it in the Applications tab), practice how to take better photos, change the keywords on your listing titles regularly, change the opening blurb in your store header every now and then, and experiment with price changes UP as well as DOWN! Run Sales on a regular basis with the Markdown Manager and also learn how to set up Promotions on your Store listings for better visibility.
3) DON'T LET YOUR UNSOLD LISTINGS LAY AROUND - Check your My eBay page and click on Unsold...get those relisted ASAP! You've already done all the work, so be sure they're viewable by buyers!
4) OPEN A STORE - If you are wondering whether you are better off with a BASIC store or a PREMIUM store, figure that if you have over 250 store items, Premium is a better buy....under 250, Basic is....this is at least a rule of thumb to get you started. Stores used to be great places to put items and keep them available year round, but with the fee changes, maybe not so much - sit down and figure it all out.
However, there are at least four really good reasons to have a store.... 1) listing fees are less if you have a store, 2) your items can be separated into categories making it much easier for buyers to shop, 3) you can run Promotions and Markdown Manager sales. They are two different ways to generate sales!, and 4) you can put your store in vacation mode when you need to get away for a bit.
5) DEAL WITH BIDDERS, BUYERS, AND ANNOYING INQUISITIVE POTENTIAL BIDDERS IN A PATIENT AND FRIENDLY WAY - Remember that it's worth money in your pocket and it's good business sense to show respect to all. If you must, write up that snarky reply, get a laugh at it, then hit delete.
6) KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE! This thread is all about MAKING MONEY, that's for sure, but we feel that being supportive of our Lister Sisters and Brothers helps ALL of us. Drop in and hang out! Venting is allowed, but take it easy on the drama, negative vibes and controversial, off-topic issues such as politics and religion.

This is from my auction lot from a couple of weeks ago. Just a little brooch 1 in. by 7/8 in. Red/orange stones; back was tarnished, cleaned up with silver polish so I assume it is at least silverplate but no marking at all. It has a C hook fastener.
Good morning everyone.
Anyone have some insight on a solution?
The short of it I purchased an item from Hong Kong, the total was $4.26 shipping included... This item was/is eligible for Ebay's Money Back Guarantee... I should note the item wasn't packaged in a box or envelope, it was wrapped in some bubble wrap with a skin of packing tape, it didn't even have a customs form, so I'm surprised it got past customs... The item arrived broken and damaged, I contacted the seller the same day it arrived telling them it arrived broken/damaged and included a picture as well as a description of the damage... The sellers offer was to refund me 10% or 43 cents as compensation, basically an insult that I refused... They then told me to send it back for a full refund... I find the idea that they want it shipped back at a cost far exceeding the purchase price stupid but whatever they want, I'm not looking to scam them I just want my money back...
So I opened am Ebay return dispute for the item, under not as described - damaged to track the return in Ebay's system...
The seller accepted the return in the dispute and provided a return mailing address in China, not Hong Kong where the item was purchased and shipped from, I find that suspicious in itself...
Anyway in the return dispute I'm presented with this page, red highlight my doing...
At the bottom of that page I have three choices "Enter Tracking Info" "Contact Seller" or "Close the Request"
So for the last 4 days and I have been contacting the seller requesting the pre-paid return shipping label so I can ship it back, as step one clearly outlines I'm supposed to do... The seller has went silent and has not responded to that request...
So today I get an message from Ebay telling me I have to ship/return the item by August 4 or possibly forfeit my refund... After receiving this message I called Ebay to hopefully settle this or get a solution...
After 35 minutes on the phone today, and talking to two customer service reps (one supposedly a return specialist) all I did was go in circles, honestly both appeared to not have a clue about how returns work...
They kept insisting I scroll down the page and see the seller provided their address and I should ship it back, I kept telling them I would love to ship it back as soon as the seller provide the pre-paid return label that step one indicates they are required to do... They kept insisting the return address the seller provided was sufficient, while I kept explaining that the return address was not sufficient as the seller is also obligated to pay for the return shipping not just provide an address as that requires me to pay the shipping... I also kept explaining that for the last 4 days I have been contacting the seller to get said pre-paid return label... This went on for 35 minutes like a ping-pong match...
Also when I opened the dispute the Ebay message said if it's not resolved by July 31st then I can request they intervene, that is what the phone call was supposed to be, but the 'return specialist' is now telling me they can't do anything until at least Aug 2 and that I needed to wait until Aug 2 before he could do anything else, and then went on to thank me for letting him help me :-/
BTW: I was quoted nearly $28 from the post office as the lowest option return shipping with tracking, that being first class parcel stacked with registered mail service... I highly doubt the seller wants to cover the $28 return shipping vs just refunding me the $4.26, but if they are I'm more than willing to ship the broken item back...
Anyone resolved a similar issue, it appears the return policy is simply broken...
I'm wondering do i need to refund buyer shipping fee for damaged packaging? the items remained undamaged however. Because I put shoes inside a stow bag.
it is a pair of shoes, I stated in the listing that, the auction is for shoes only, no shoe trees no anything else.
No, I didn't say i would ship it in the original packaging, i didn't even mention the word packaging.
What's everybody up to today?
I feel like I've seen this before so I was wondering if there was a name for this. The front is lime green and the back is white. Looks painted but not sure with what kind of paint?
Thank you in advance!
I do NOT want to chat with someone about this ad I found on Ebay yesterday. It would be much better if they would LOOK at the photo that is a part of the advertisement on their website and then took some action.
If this type of advertising is allowed now, what will come next? This is E-Bay - not Adam & Eve! There should never be any photos like this to sell an item.
If they have to use sexual photos to sell their product, maybe they need to do it some place else. I do not want E-Bay to be for adults only.
Here is the ad and the photo is attached as well. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE ASKED FOR SOME RESPONSE ON THIS....HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO AT LEAST ACKNOWLEDGE SOMEONE OUT THERE IS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GARBAGE?
THIS PHOTO WAS ALTERED SO THAT THE FRONT OF HER BELLY LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING ELSE.....THAT IS NOT THE WAY IT LOOKS NORMALLY!
Found this old milk bottle that has W.H. Allen & Sons Indian Orchard. Is it a dud and worthless? I know nothing about them and if someone can tell me how to clean the inside bottom of it to remove some kind of yellowing. Thanks!
I immediately think of the three little pigs with this guy but hubby first said dog and then deer! What do ya think? Marked Monet.

i bought two turquoise 9I think this is turquoise, I don't know, I am still trying to learn about it) rings at an outdoor antique show today. This is one, and I have now clue about the "hallmark" in it. I believe it is Navajo because of the constructions. The gold overlay is rosy in color....it is stamped "sterling" inside and was tested as such. Please give me your opinions on it- and maybe the stone is glass? I don't know. Thanks.
My Apologoes I had posted this earlier and it got in the wrong board.. So it is sitting somewhere and cannot find it or if there is a way to move it here. I have not been forums for a while!
i am looking at purchasing this Japanese Vase. Description says it had hole drilled in bottom for lamp? Bottom has Made in Japan. The only marking I know since I am not holding it physically.
It is 12 inches in height.
Anyone know what it is called? Beautiful colorsl. It has a lot oc crazing.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks for any help and your time.
I believe this is a Navajo sterling turquoise ring. It is marked sterling inside with some hallmarks. I am trying to determine if it is turquoise, and if so, what mine it may have come from. Thank you!
I am trying to find out everything I can about this ring..... to start, do you think this is genuine turquoise? The ring is marked sterling with gold overlay on the front in a rosy color.....I have been researching mines and am trying to determine what mine this could be from. Thank you for any help!
I picked this up at an estate sale quite some time ago, along with a couple of really neat Native American baskets. Was going to list it, then while doing some research online realized that I have no idea how to price it, and more importantly, whether or not it is old and actually Native American.
It has a decent patina, good work on the carving/design, and is certainly elk horn. When I search for Hupa or California elk-horn purse, very similar items appear on google etc. but I've noticed that a lot of them, most of them actually, have larger slots in them, presumably to fit the dentalium shells. Other than that, this piece seems to fit the bill for being a purse.
This piece is about 4 1/2" long, 1 1/2" across, and has a very thin slice of horn/antler glued into one end. The string is just for a tag I attached to help keep track of when/where I got it.
My friend found this in a storage unit he won at a auction & sold it to me (he only deals in furniture). I bought it because it looks like it was done by a well known artist whose work all have ladies in this style in them. - I bought it even though it was too big to fit in my car & I had to take it out of the frame It has to measure at least 36" x 48" - it covered my whole back seat!) and even though it had slid behind the matting so I couldn't see the name before removing it, - I bought it because I was sure I knew the work & would recognize the name once I saw it.
BUT I DON'T!! (aagghh!)
Can someone please tell me who this signature belongs to & if it is a known artist? The piece is a limited edition; it is also signed in pencil 174 / 275.
PS - Is there a way to tell if this is a litho, serigraph or reg print? The artwork has a "feel" to it - different than a reg print that would feel just like the paper it is on.
I appreciate any help.
Hi I am needing help on figuring out the signature of this piece and if not that maybe someone wil be able to identify which artist this may have come from? The piece is framed and came from a gllaery. But you can only read this part of the gallery name which is ead Gallery. Any help is appreciated.Size is around 5x7.
Hi, I hope some can help with the age of this Japanese Vase. There is a hole drilled in the bottom (for Lamp?) and marked – Made in Japan.
I am thinking of purchasing it but hope someone may shed some light on age and any other information as to what it is.
The vase is 12 inches tall. There are two women and one male. The colors are beautiful .
I have not seen it in person.
Any information as to what it is and what style/ age?
I hope this is not too many images or too large?
Thanks for the help!
This tear drop shaped piece is 2 3/8" long and is made from 1/16" thick steel. The upper mount is detachable via the hex bolt. The hex bolt does have some tiny lettering, which apears to be "YFS" or "VFS", but that may refer to the manufacturer of the hex bolt.
Can anyone help me identify this porcelain figurine and possibly provide keywords? I've searched Disney's website and eBay and I can't find this one. From what I understand, they have names - does anyone happen to know this one? Possibly a year it was produced? The bottom is marked "authentic original Disney theme parks" so I'm guessing someone bought this at Disney World. It's approximately 5" tall and 6" across. Any and all information will be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need additional information from me. Thanks in advance for your time, help, and expertise!
This came from an estate sale. It is marked STER and it is sterling with a real, light cream pearl in his mouth. He's on a sterling box chain, but since there were other box chains the same size at the estate it may not be original to the pendant. The mark looks to me like an "S" inside of a crown. Maybe it's not a crown, but the general shape of a crown? Definitely an S though inside something. I love the way his tail wraps around to create the bale. Any idea what the mark is? I've found him listed a couple other places but the sellers don't appear to know the hallmark either. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Good morning. Can anyone please help id this green creamer? Thanks in advance for any assistance. gina
I have two unsigned pins that I have no idea where I got them from. Both are pretty and unusual in their own way. Could someone please tell me anything you know about age or style? I usually only buy jewelry that is signed and I can look up to find information.
1) This lovely red enamel pin has clear rhinestones for the stamen. Where the pin closes looks like it may be broken.
2) This one has both enamel, glass or plastic open back stones incased in saw tooth like prongs, and faux pearls for the stamen.
I purchased an AC adapter for my MacBook in May of this year, and it stopped working less than 90 days after I received it. I sent the following message to the seller ventefacile:
After less than 90 days this adapter has completely stopped working. I'd like a new one sent to me ASAP.
This fly reel was in with a bunch of vintage Shakespeare and Martin reels but it does not have a maker's name on it - only has JAPAN stamped on the mounting plate. It is painted with what appears to be original flat black. What would be the best way to title it so that some interested party might have at least a remote chance of finding it. Thanks for your help.
That is what happened to me

Hi there, i was testing windows 10 (dont like it) so i went back to windows 8.1, and when i went to My Ebay window, it appears a countdown (and i´m not bidding in anything that ends at the time. So my question is......."is this a bug for moving me from windows 10 to 8.1?"
Thanks for the help
Anyone else having this issue???? When people bid on your items, when viewed on your phone app it is showing retracted bids even when you havent gotten a retracted bid on your item? I have seen others complain about this too and are now accusing sellers of schilling their auctions but its not true and it is hurting sales for good honest sellers. This shows up on my all the time and sometimes will show 4 bids with 20+ retracted bids when I never got an email or even have actual retraced bids. heres a perfect example. i have attached a pic. I just got a bid on one of the items I am selling. I got the notification and checked my phone instantly. It shows 1 bid and one retracted bid already but the bid is still there and nothing got retracted? HOW CAN WE GET EBAY TO FIX THIS! Ive contacted them and they never understand what I am talking about but it makes sellers look bad because people say we are schilling our auctions which isn't the case at all.
Does anyone have a clue what this logo is for is this the same Nikko that makes R/C Cars or some other company? Any help is appricated.

I have a couple FDC's with this cachet. Any idea whose it is?
I have always assumed it to be faux turquoise and a silver plated alloy. No markings. Before I list it, is there any chance it might be more than I think? Maybe an older piece? I am and I've had it for a while now. Thank you for taking time to share your wisdom!
Hi, Thank you in advance for any help with the age of this piece.
It measures approximately 15 5/8" tall, 5 1/2" across the top, 6 1/2" across the bottom and 7 1/2" at the widest point across.
The mark on the bottom says "Made in Czechoslovakia"
Hi! seeking help identifying the maker of this 24" tall vintage drip glaze vase.
many thanks in advance... Kristi
This is a recent piece, sponge coral and maybe turquoise. Definitely sterling. The hang tag is a square piece of shell with a V cut through it with a laser.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Measures about 11" tall and 10" wide. Weighs six and a quarter pounds. Alas, I find no Lalique signature. I also don't see any seams.
Department store? Cheap import? Something else?
Thanks in advance,
Thought I would start the chat hope no one minds
Please help me ith this vintage folk art piece just not sure what it is thanks maybe a cup for drinking ?
Can anybody translate what is written on the this. And the artist? Is it a print of a sketch with watercolor? Or is it called something else? Thank you.
Hi, Thank you all in advance for any help with this piece.
We believe this is an early (19th. Century) Japanese Satsuma Vase.
Could anyone help us confirm this?
This piece is not marked anywhere.
Also, does anyone know what this technique is called when there are applied pieces on a vase like this?
This piece measures approximately 11 7/8" tall, 4" across the top, 3 1/2" across the bottom and 6 1/2" at the widest part in the middle.
This also appears to have some Samurai swordsmen in it.
Hello, I dind't sold anything on Ebay and I need to pay this?
Yes I did put shometing on Ebay but he didn't buy it on ebay we did sold it on an other site.
why do I still need to pay 11 euro for it.
(When you guys response on this question how can I answer back)
Hope you guys can help me.
I got this from my friend along with the Isaac Maimon I asked about yesterday - they were both in the same storage unit he'd won at a auction. He owns a furniture store & bought the unit because of the beautiful, high end furniture that was in the unit. That same high end furniture is what made me agree to buy the Maimon piece even though I couldn't see the signature, and this piece.
This is another large piece, but not as big as the Maimon, and appears to be a pastel but I can't tell even with a magnifying glass.
It also appeared to not be signed until I saw what looks like initials (bottom photo).
Does anyone recognize the art or the initials - if that is what they are? Is there a way to tell if it's a real pastel without removing it from the frame? If not I will open the back enough to feel it; I think it's worth the gamble just because of the type of home it came out of.
I appreciate any help if it's possible.
I don't even know if this ring is turquoise, but I am guessing if it is, it is Navajo in construction. The gold overlay is rosy, and it is stamped "sterling" inside and tests as such. Does anyone know anything about this ring, including the hallmarks? I am trying to learn about turquoise, but it hasn't been easy.
Is this a cordial glass? It holds 2 ounces when filled nearly to the top and stands 4 1/8 inches tall. The stem is 6 sided. It has an interesting pedal or even Star pattern when looking into it. The pattern of this pedal is ribbed and frosted. Any idea about who made this goblet? Thanks!
Good Morning! This blue glass bowl measures 8 1/2" wide and 3 3/4" tall. It has a vertical rib design, and painted flowers and leaves w/ gold trim. There is considerable wear to the gold trim and plenty of scratches on the foot, it has an "old" feel to it. The rim and base remind me of EAPG, but I haven't found anything researching that end. I've also looked at Bohemian glass, but the decoration looks more elaborate than this bowl. Any suggestions?
Thanks for any help!
One poster here occasionally regales us with accounts of his most recent finds.
Would other board regulars be willing to occasionally share an interesting coin they've either bought, sold, or otherwise encountered in the last month? Along with comments on what they liked or learned about it? Doesn't need to be valuable, just interesting to someone. On the sports memorabilia board, there used to be month-end threads like this.
So, I'll start for July (actually, it's a coin that sold at the end of June ... cheating at my own game).
I ran acoss this small Guatemala coin in my collection; I must have picked it up as a kid (that telltale rust on the staples of the 2 x 2). I hadn't ever looked at it closely enough to realize that the portrait on the front was NOT a national political leader, but a religious figure, Brother Bartolomew de las Casas. When I looked it up in Krause, it seemed to be a common, low value coin, but I didn't see any in an eBay sold items search. I listed it as a BIN at 12 times Krause and was surprised it sold in a day. OK, the price was $2.95 which ain't exactly gonna pay the mortgage, but it's also a bit better than $0.99. It turns out that Batolomew de las Casas was an interesting figure, ahead of his time in some ways, advocating for the rights of indigenous peoples in Central America back in the early 1500s:
Anyone else got an interesting coin to share?
Please give me some advise as how I could collect the $117 this guy owes me (for a defective item I returned to him with his consent - Seller: usjacq-z9laja
July 30, 2015
The seller is a dishonest person, or at least has the tendency to be dishonest, for merely a bait of $100. He sold me a defective SD disk and owed me $117, and he is in hiding from me.
It’s sad a merely $117 can turn a regular citizen to be a human trash like him.
June 13, 2015, I bought “Avaya IP Office SD Card with Essential Edition R8” from the seller for $100 plus $6.40 shipping. The selling price was less than 50% of the ongoing price for the similar products at Ebay.
June 18, 2015, received the card;
June 29, 2015, I wrote to the buyer, SD card is corrupted and did not work, and asked for a return;
June 29, 2015, he replied” I am so sorry that it s corrupted. I will take the SD card back.”
June 29, 2015, he also replied “I hate these things. That's why I am out of this business. I totally understand.”
July 7th, I return the SD Card with USPS restricted delivery, costing me about $11
July 9th, the package was delivered and signed off by the sell;
Repeated emails to the seller went unanswered.
Does 10KT mean
10 KT gold or gold fill
the code is AR1194
Hello friends, good day, I have a problem when trying to pay the sales tax tells me that the payment was not satisfactory and need to contact PayPal, but what is the process that I follow? The payment tried to do again? I have sufficient balance on the credit card to pay the debt but the debt charge is not performed. I hope you can help me and guide me. Thank You.
So, I made a "best offer" on an item, and gave myself a little bit of leeway for haggling. The seller refused the offer and sent me a scathing email saying that my offer was insulting, and I had no idea how much sellers pay in fees, etc. I am aware of fees and such, because I have sold on eBay in the past, but that isn't the issue. It's what happened next. I apologized to them profusely in reply, and received another email full of anger. They said they were blocking me, and not to contact them again.
I searched all over for another item like theirs, and could not find one, so I asked my next door neighbor to just buy the item for me, at the seller's full BIN price, and I would pay them back. The next day, my neighbor received a similar heated email from the seller saying that while they would ship the item, that their buying the item for me was against eBay rules and that they were going to report BOTH of us if we "gave them any trouble".
I am aware that if I myself had made a seperate account in an attempt to subvert the seller's blocking me, there might be an issue, but can the seller really have us BOTH reported for this? I mean, really, the seller got their full price for the item. If she reports me, so be it, but my friend as well?
24 hours ago, 3 of my auction style listings went from about 120 page views to over 7700+ within a 2 hour period in the middle of the night. Almost immediately when the 2 hours were up, the page views slowed down and trickled in, then eventually just stopped and went to normal. The items in question are rare, but not so rare they would generate that many views in such a short amount of time.
I have listed like items before and generated 500 or so page views over a 5 day span, but never anything like this.
I can not find the source that posted the links. is it possible my listings were hacked in some way? - or is there any way to see where the links were posted?
Im totally stumped
I got the dreaded neutral for an item deemed "not too cute".. there was nothing wrong with the item, it was promptly mailed via priority, arrived rapidly. But... NOT TOO CUTE!!

Also, am I able to block this "NOT TOO CUTE" buyer before the transaction is complete?
Thank you in advance,
So, I sold a $1200 statue about a month ago. Sealed, mint-in-box, direct from the manufacturer, but in climate-controlled storage for a few years. Should have been no issues.
Buyer gets the item and notices that there's a paint chip missing on one small, detachable part (the hair). We try to reach an amicable resolution.
I offer to find him a repair service that will handle this; I find a guy who actually works for the company who made this statue, so he's an expert at repairs for this specific type of statue. He will repair it for $50, which I'm totally willing to pay, plus shipping and insurance from the buyer's location (somewhere in the Phillipines, I think).
Instead, the buyer first demands $180 for a repair - which is an INSANE amount for the minuscule amount of painting that needs to be done. He'd complained about the price of the item from day one anyhow. I told him that I'd give him a $100 refund to keep him happy, which would absolutely cover a professional repair. He decides to "compromise" at $140.
He refuses to send the piece for repair, and instead decides that he'd like to find someone locally. At this point, he admits to extorting more than the repair fee from me: "I feel you should pay a little extra anyway as the piece arrived with these damages."
I ask him to send me an actual invoice for the repair costs, which I will cover up to $140, just to be done with it all. He's very unwilling to send an actual invoice, because he knows it's a ridiculous cost.
I call eBay, they're too confused to handle the call (I get passed around, one person thinks I'm the buyer, I get read a script, etc.), and I get no resolution.
I'm willing to pay the repair cost, even though it's not damage that came from me, because I didn't inspect the item a second time before I sent it. It's an expensive lesson, but I'll take it.
So, my questions are these:
1. Is it completely unrealistic to ask for an actual invoice from a legit repair service rather than pay a random amount?
2. The buyer admitted to extortion and requesting fees above and beyond the actual cost of repair; are there repercussion for this?
Thanks for any help that can be provided, as eBay's CS line was not helpful.
Hi I am fairly new at selling and my art is what I want to sell. I have had very few people looking at my listings this week and I'm not sure why. I've read that the more listings I have the better so I will put some more of my art up for sale. Would anyone mind taking a look at my listings and critique them for me? I'm all ears as to what I can do to improve. http://www.ebay.com/itm/291522022866?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
I buy tons of stuff from china but have been cheated so many time, I buy mostly beads which are very cheap 1/5 the price of what they cost in the US. The problem is it most take forever to ship and most use fake tracking numbers which never work.
And then there is this problem I buy a lot sometimes from one seller, that just happens to leave some items out of package but the tracking numer says delivered when filing for not received ebay says here is the tracking number and it says delivered so no refund for this items I withhold feedback but will leave neg. for all items, how would you handle it????
I received the wrong item. Contacted the seller and advised him of the problem and I also sent photos. Seller offered me a partial refund or if I returned the item, he would issue a full refund. Buyer wants me to pay for the return shipping. I advised the seller it was his responsabilty for the cost of the return shipping.
I told the seller that I wanted a full refund first, and after I receive a return shipping label, I would sent back the item.
I have not heard back for the seller.
Should I go to the resolution center and open a case.
How can i get multiple sellers Accounts?
Can i operate more than 1 Ebay Seller account with the same computer? Same IP adress?. Please let me know asap
I had a very weird experience. Today when I checked the shipping status of my sold items, I discovered that on a recent international sale a partial refund for a significant amount of money had been granted to the buyer. I had not been advised about this in any way whatsoever. When I called eBay to learn more, I was told that it was an "Admin refund". They could provide no other information, but the eBay CSR refered me to Paypal. Note, that thus far no money has been debited from my account.
When I contacted Paypal, I learned that the the "Admin refund" was because the customer's credit card had been declined, at least in part for the total amount due. I expressed my concern to the Paypal CSR that it appears that the buyer may get a nice art print for free, or nearly so, if the shipment is not reversed or the buyer doesn't pay the full amount. Paypal said they would email the buyer and ask them to pay the full amount. Paypal also said I should try to contact the shipping carrier to have the package sent back to me.
The item has left the US and is on it's way to Norway. I do not have the carrier and tracking info yet for this leg of the journey, only eBay's internal GSP number. Fedex was responsible only for the domestic leg of the journey. And so, my concern is that the buyer will get a nice art print without paying for it, and that somehow I will get charged for it. I probably won't, or shouldn't, as I used eBay's GSP to ship it, and I did not process the payment, eBay and Paypal did.
Should I just wait and see what happens, or should I contact eBay again and try to get the shipment reversed? Personally, I have a moral issue with fraudsters getting away with things, even if I am not personally affected. Plus, I don't like the idea of nice art in the hands of questionable people. What would you do?
SO JUST A QUESTION I RUN IN TO ALOT OF MORE THEN NOW THEN EVER, BUT IM STILL NEW HERE, BUT RAN IN TO FAKE AND BAD DEALS OR NOT AS DEC DEALS, LIKE THEY SAYS ITS NEW BUT ITS USED OR OPENED, OR SO IF THE SELLER UNWILLING TO HELP YOU AND OR IT DOESN'T COST MUCH AND NOT WORTH TIME TO FILE A RETURN, AND DECIDE TO GIVE NUT OR NEG FEEDBACK IS THAT BAD? THOUGHT FEEDBACK WAS A REVIEW OF THE ITEM NOT OF YOUR CHARACTER? SO I NEED SOME HELP HERE, I SAW IN ANOTHER POST THE MORE NEG AND NUT FEEDBACK YOU LEAVE FOR A SELLER AND YOU SELF IS A SELLER AS WELL YOU WONT BE TRUSTED ? IS THIS TRUE? OR CORRECT? WHEN I BUY I HARDLY LOOK AT THE FEEDBACK UNLESS ITS UNDER 90% OR SO GIVE OR TAKE, AS YOU CANT SEE THE ITEM THAT THE FEEDBACK WAS LEFT ABOUT SO THERE IS NO WAY THE ITEM YOU ARE BIDDING ON IF SOME ONE ELSE LIKED IT OR NOT, OR A REVIEW ON THAT SAME ITEM, JUST NEED A LITTLE INFO AND HELP PLEASE, THANKS I SEE PEOPLE WITH 10,000 FEEDBACK WITH 3,000+ NEG FEEDBACK'S BUT IT DIDN'T STOP ME FROM LOOKING BIDDING OR BUYING FROM THEM,
LET ME KNOW HOW TO IMPROVE AND WHAT TO DO AND DON'T DO THANK YOU
Hello people ! I have small question .. I come here to ebay to sell my iphone 5 now is sold but the money is on pending and i have 5 bids more . anyone can give me an good advice?? Thank you and have a really nice day ! Ionescu Brad
I sold a photo printer. It was rather heavy so cost a lot to ship....just over 50.00.
The buyer's address looks like it could be an apt.
Anyway the day he purchased it (Sunday) I hadn't printed a label for it yet because I knew it wouldn't go out until Monday. The buyer sent me a Ebay message with this:
"Hey sir. Plz I need this item."
I write him back, thanked him for his purchase and let him know that the item is going out Monday and he should get it soon. It went out 2 day priority.
He writes me back:
"OK thanks for the business . hoping to get it soon."
The item was attempted to be delivered July 29th, but he must not have been home or whatever.
On July 30th, the printer went back to the post office as "Available for pick-up".
The buyer has yet to pick it up but he seemed to be in a hurry for it.
I got to wondering if the buyer had 2nd thoughts. Could the buyer refuse the shipment and it get shipped back to me and he be refunded? I put on listing "no refunds". If he refused the item, I'd be out of over 50.00 in shipping?
How would Ebay handle this? I'm just trying to research ahead of time because you just never know. I got a little concerned too when I saw his Paypal email address was yahoo in UK.
I'm always so afraid of scammers and their tricks but this guy could be completely legit.
what is the correct procedure for ending an auction a day early and accepting the high bid (only bid) as the winner? Thanks!
For some reason it is taking forever to upload anything on Turbo Lister. I have deleted and re-installed and still no improvement. Anyone else having this issue?
Hello all! Found this at the thrift store and would like to know what you all think. Real or fake!
Seller agreed to a return request but has not send me a return label. I contacted the seller to request a return label but seller claims that she is unable to upload the return label for me and all I want is refund because the items are not authentic.
What do I need to do in order to receive a full refund ?
I purchased an item and two days later I got the notification that it was shipped. Two days further pass and I get a message from the seller telling me that the item was actually out of stock and asked me if I wanted a refund. What do you think is going on?
Hello i have sold a item and the buyer did not pay. Ebay charged the 10% fee on the item i sold, atleast i think thats what the fee is for. I don't think the buyer is going to pay because he has not respnded to any of my questions. I opened a case so i guess i will have to close that soon, but anyways if the buyer does not pay do i need to pay ebay the fee and get a refund, or not pay ebay and let the fee go away, if it will? Will i still owe ebay anything if the buyer does not pay? This was also a buy it now or best offer listing how did he not pay right then when he bought it. Oh and there was not a insertion fee atlest i dont think there was.
I just got an email from an ebayer who wants to buy an item I just listed, but wants to pay with a personal check. I have always just accepted paypal. Is accepting a personal check or money order allowed? If allowed, how do I do this? Would I have to end my auction to wait to get his payment in the mail? He wants to pay the buy it now price. If I don't end it, then what if someone else buys it before I get his payment in the mail? I don't know what to do. Please advise, thanks!
I went to cancel order while trying to adjust shipping, etc and I would like to know how to now UN-cancel the cancel order? Does it time out after a certain time or is there a way to undo what i've done? It did not process at the time as there wasn't that much in the paypal account, so that saved it from going all the way through. I would like to see it does not go through since I'm sending the item manually so I can reimburse the difference, if any, in shipping. I'd never had to do that before, and went to cancel order in error. Any ideas? Thank you.
i have bought over 100 items, not much, to some people. I always try to find a way to leave positive feedback unless the service is really bad. My question is whether sellers are required to send tracking info after I paid for the item, so I can be home when it arrives; especially since the package is large and shows that is in the box? I have emailed the seller twice to request the tracking info, but have no reply as of yet. The item is to be delivered between 8/3-8/10, and I can't stay home every day to wait for it! What options do I have, and what action do you suggest I do next? The item was $259.99 so not chump change to me...
Thanks for any ideas.
I get this message when I try to see my product: I have no idea why, does anyone had similar expirence and how did you resolve it? Thanks.
This listing (261987639927) has been removed, or this item is not available.
I didn't receive any message from EBAY, not on e-mail and not in my EBAY message center.
Seller apparently never bothered to ship item.
Never responded to multiple attempts at comunication.
After holding my Money forover a month he just refunded it out of the blue despite the fact that my messages said i still wanted the item.
No reason for not shipping it or even an appology.
I want to review this seller and leave appropriatly terrible feedback for him but now that he has proccessed a refund i can't seem to do that.
Does anyone know what to do?
I made a collection where the majority of the products are found on ebay, however there were some products i had to buy from other websites.
How can I add these products from the other site to my collection?
if that's not possible am i allowed to put it up for sale with a title and discription saying PRODUCT NOT FOR SALE, JUST ADDING TO MY COLLECTION or something similar so that it can be found on ebay and therefor can be added to my collection?
I was able to post my fisrt listing online without any problems, but now, whenever I try to upload something, it says that I don't have a reimbursement payment. What changed?
one or more of the items below can't be purchased because the seller has not specified shipping costs to the location selected
I get this message when i try to pay for an item i won, i contacted seller several times to request a total but got no response ebay is sending me messages to pay what do i do to resolve this ?
Post Office says my item weighs more than what my shipping label says. I do not know how to update my postage. Should I void my shipping label and then try to find a way to increase the weight or can I pay for additional weight. I am new to saling and sending books via media mail
NOW I CANT FIGURE OUT HOW TO DELETE THIS QUESTION the PO couldnt do anything except snarl her nose lol i had to void the shipping label and then go buy a new one and change the weight from there. it was a womping $1.00 extra.
I recently cam across a group of old lithos from the 1960s.

I would greatly appericate help in identifying the artist signture (R. Hubb____???) and the cars depicted.
thank you so much for your time and knowledge!!!!
HOW CAN I OR CAN I REMOVE OR REVISE FEEDBACK FOILLOW UP COMMENT? THANK YOU
I am looking for help again with a pink bowl.
I am wondering who made it, what the pattern is.
It is 11 inches in diameter, and 3 inches high.
So I sold an item several months ago and the buyer left me a simple one word negative feedback that said: SCAM. All because it was a holiday and shipping took an extra day. Even though I provided tracking number and shipping promptly two days after auction because of weekend, the item ended early Saturday morning so I was unable to ship until Tuesday becuase Monday was a holiday. I have filed complaint with ebay only to not get a response. I am sure others have had this issue, before wasting my time and calling is there anything else I can do? Scam makes it seem like buyer didn't get the item or that I stole his/her money. That seems very defamatory considering I did everything I was supposed to do and buyer got said item with proof of tracking and recieving.
I have almost 1000 feedback score and no negatives other than this one. I am wanting to list a similar item but feel it will hurt my chances if buyers see this "SCAM" feedback left that I know I did not deserve. This was a zero feedback buyer who has never bought anything else on ebay. Seems rather odd to me.
Thanks for any guidence.
