Lady bought something from me last night then left me this message. I looked at my PayPal to see just one not two transactions. Should I cancel thinking that maybe she is trying to get me or am I just being paranoid?
All morning I am getting McAfee warnings .
Does anyone else who uses norton or other programs have this problem today?
Hello, thanks for looking! I have been through my books multiple times and I can't find this outfit.
It is an orange long lacket type orange knit, and a matching orange/blue dress. A chain is attached to the neckline. Both pieces have the vintage Barbie tag. The hem is loose in the front of the dress.
I am not 100% certain these two pieces go together. They were in a big group of vintage Barbie I purchased. I couldn't ID either of these, and the orange on both match.
The dress has two small buttons in the back.
Please help me solve this mystery before I tear my hair out!
I hope this isn't a duplicate posting, I can't find the first one. Sorry if this is a duplicate.
If I am in the wrong place/board, please don't be mean, just point me in the right direction. I'm pretty new to the boards, and this wouldn't be my first OR last mistake
I have this book "Impression of Xi'AN" It has no publisher name or date. It doesn't even have an author's name. And to make it more unsual is there are actual uncirculated stamps and enbedded in the back cover is what appears to be very old coins.
I will happily post a series of pictures, but IF I am on the right board, I don't want to waste everyones time.
I hope no one here has been in this situation, but I suspect some of you have.
I received a return request today for item 252269378079.
Please have a look at item 252269378079 and tell me if you see any reason why someone would expect this painting to be 4x4?
The ebay item specifics indicate 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" (inches),
in my description I explain that an ACEO is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" (inches)
and state that the painting is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" (inches).
Then, in about 18pt font, I indicate, "This painting is the size of a playing card."
I really feel l've done due diligence to make sure any buyer would have no confusion about the size of the painting.
NOW, my question. The only option i see is, "be sure to resolve the buyers request by Feb. 8th, after that the buyer could open a case and affect your performance level."
There is no option anywhere I can locate to point out that, in fact, this item EXACTLY as described.
I want to proceed with caution, of course, as I know my seller rating is in jeopardy here... and, frankly, that makes me livid.
Had the buyer just said, sorry, didn't realize it was this small (although there is no escaping the dimensions if one reads the description),
if it had been requested in the, "my bad".. spirit, I would have accepted it. But if I accept the return, it's the same as saying that the item was
not as described and it was EXACTLY as described, but the buyer either didn't read the description.
What do I do from here to best protect myself?
My first impulse is to point out that the item is exactly as described, but to offer to accept the return as a one time courtesy anyway (BBL updated, of course)...
but I'm fairly certain that the machine that is ebay will take that as an admission of guilt and place me in the back 40 of listings /downgrade me substantially.
Okay, just created a listing. It is listed at 15 ounces, First Class Parcel, and it is coming up as $6.45 shipping? Shouldn't it be showing $3.65? (There is no handling fee!) Am I missing something (besides my marbles...there saved you all from saying it - ha!)
Got this in my email from Ebay this week. I've moved 95% of my business elsewhere over the last several years because Ebay wasn't listening to ANYTHING long-time sellers like me had to say over those past few years, and because I've watched capable dealers be banned forever from Ebay over trivial mistakes, been scammed time and time again with no support from Ebay, and paid the highest charges ever with almost no page views and very limited sales because of that. Now thier stock is tanking, and they want to play gushy-gushy good guy? Did anyone else buy into this?
Thank you so much Marie, it finally bloomed! It is about 3 1/2' tall with 4 huge blooms! I love it and I love you Marie! I will think of you every time it blooms! Thank you again!!!! Carolyn
Is this necklace antique? The back of the box clasp reads "Gold Fild" Each bead, I believe, is made of crystal. It's really pretty. Is this certain cut attributed to an era? There's a fine chain link rope that holds all the beads together.
Any insight on this necklace is a win for me. Thank you for helping!
Somebody else can do Delaware.
Today we visit Florida, let's start at the southern tip of the state . . . which is also the southernmost point of the contiguous United States that is open to the public; Key West.
And as we move north, we will be looking for towns with the names of Briny Breezes, Elfers, Fluffy Landing, Lone Cabbage Fish Camp, Ocheesee, Soopchoppy, and Weeki Wachee.
Could not find anything like this on listed or completed items.
I'm figuring probably Home Shopping Channel, QVC or something similar. It's sterling, but the top is ombre enamel and rhinestone. The Ill Will missed the sterling marks, but I didn't.
Someone has this set listed as "Whispering Leaves" is that the correct name for this SC set?
Been through 4 books, several times over and about an hour on the internet, can't seem to find this one. Any help? It has the black and white/Japan label and the YKK zipper in the back. Tiny pearls at the empire waist, cuffs and adorable bow at the back hemline.
It has a C clasp which is pushed over to one side a little. He is missing 99% of his stones - just a couple of tiny dark stones in his body - but I liked him even without the stones.
SHILLING so easy to SPOT and eBay does nothing when reported the "conventional way."....
But you gather your "suspected activity" - place it all in line (copy paste) in a word doc so you can be prepared to rattle off "the SUSPECTS" Activity and dates, etc. on the eBay provided ID (to protect the bidder) and CALL IT IN.
You WILL GET THE RUN AROUND... do not accept the first persons word that they will look into it. Demand nicely to speak to someone in the department that looks into Suspecious Activity.
Be NICE , but BE FIRM.
Then tell the representitive your problem. Be sure you have the ebay give id's with the specs and be prepared to have to go in circles with the rep. They really do not want to be bothered - but if you are persistant - they will go into the "suspects ACCOUNT " while you are on the phone and they can tell from the previous activity that the suspect is a shiller.
Tell them you want something done to the SHILLER and the Seller being SHILLED. After all - they are BOTH DOING IT!
Here is HOW YOU CANTELL when your bid is getting shilled.
First sign: 2 days left - no bids on the item no one seems to want. You place a bid. Less than 5 minutes later, sometimes with 30 seconds, suddenly you are OUT BID.
Go to where it now says "2 bids or 5 bids... etc.."
Click on that.
Pick out the ID that appears to be driving the price up.
Then click ot the "ebay provided ID" for more info on the bidder.
You'll see something like"
Then look below and see the Bidding History.
When it looks something like this... it is a shiller:

You will notice all that bidding in 30 days actually was done in 4 days - TOPS.
I was trying for some cheapie Silicone coasters... starting at $.99 - last day of 7 day listing... NO BIDDERS. I put in my $1.50 bid. Within SECONDS I was out bid.
I checked the bidder like above and he had 88% bids with that seller in less than 7 days - no other bids listed for anyone else for the 30 day disclosure.
When eBay swithched over to changing the identy of the bidders to protect them... it was like giving SHILLERS Card Blanch. Now shilling is running Rampant!
Bidding isn't fun anymore once you start checking and you see you are being manipulated to UP your bid withing seconds to minutes after you bid. The SHILLERS have it on "auto bid" and you do not have a fair chance!
SUCKS - doesn't it?
Hello eveyrone! I can't seem to remember what this type of jewelry was called. Please help! Thanks in advance!
Hi, I purchased this wooden plaque at an estate sale in Texas.
It appears to be old & with paint flaking off. Measures 15" x 6".
On the back you can read faintly "Samantha" and there is a date which looks like 1917.
I would greatly appreciate if you could help me with any information that may be helpful & do you think the date 1917 would be accurate?
Are these actually from a branch of military, or simply a patriotic embellishment? Again Thank You, V76
I came across this little girl tossed aside at a flea market..undressed, no wig, with severely damaged facial paint and lashes missing on right eye. I saw she has very thickly painted lower lashes that were missing on the ends and a pretty coral lip color. I repainted her discolored skin areas to even out her tone, added eyebrows and added missing lashes on right eye. I left her pretty coral lip color untouched. Though her lashes are ugly, I kept with the theme incase they really were original and just retouched them. Any ideas on who she is? She I crudely painted so probably not a well known brand. She is unmarked and a walker, and arms can be posed/swiveled. Any comments and critiques welcome =)
I have seen this mark before, but just cannot put a name to it anymore (old age lol) Tried finding something, but gave up.
Is that supposed to be the letter C backwards?
Thanks in advance.
Hi...any help is appreciated in identifying these 3 graduated bowls. They are a very lightweight pottery of some kind largest is approx. 11 1/4". Thanks so much!
Hi there, I have this pendant that's in need of an ID. Unmarked and what looks like to be set in a bronze frame, I think the stone maybe opal but i'm not totally sure.
Does anyone have any additional information on this item and the era it maybe from?
Thank's As Always
I was hoping that someone could assist me with the piece.
Specifically with the region of origin, I'm thinking it may be Ottoman or Persian.
It definately has some age to it, 19th century or perhaps even earlier.
The threading has metallic features to it and it is on cotton.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Measures about 2" by 2 1/2" It has an 8 point star center cut stone. Thanks for looking!
We’re excited to announce more Seller Hub beta improvements addressing your feedback about navigation.

I found this at a local TS and no one there knew what it is used for. It measures 10.25" long, metal part 5.5". It is not sharp. Any ideas what it is called and what it is used for?
TIA - Sue
Not marked that I can see. 7 1/4" tall. thank you for any information.
I have a pair of these - maybe decanters? I'm trying to determine if the AR mark is Augustus Rex (which would make these quite old) or a fake mark. Each piece is 13" in height, they are handpainted rather than decals.
Any information appreciated.
Today we visit Georgia, a peach of a state.
Below are some items I could really use help identifying... I love learning about this stuff
Thank you in advance!
Item 1 - Salad Server?
Item 2 - Pink Plate (small)?
Item 3 - Red Glass Compote with Lid - 3 Beaded Top?
Item 4 - Amberina Moons and Stars Banana Boat? Other banana boats don't have a pedestal like this one does... ANy ideas?
Item 5 - Scrolled beaded stem wine glass - light green (maybe vaseline)
Item 6 - Swirl small glass bowls - super light tint - uneven edges
Item 7 - Yellow Amber Sherbet Cups - Can't figure out the maker of these. No marks on the bottom or anywhere
Item 8 - Sadler Teapot - I've looked online in many places and can't find it... any ideas?
Item 9 - Clear glass plate - bubbles on it, no markings... Not KIG...
Just dealt with one of the worst buyers yet in my many years as a seller
Demanded a refund before they even received the item,usps tracking proved that,
then one lie after the other about why the $1.57 part he bought was wrong & it was my fault he ordered the wrong one?!.
Refused to adhere to the return policy wanted to keep it & get a full refund....then
Leaves abusive/malicious feedback not just for me but for @ 50% of the sellers he deals with even stating that most sellers are bad &deserve neutral/negative fb.
Ebay rep was great & quickly removed the -fb so just a note to watch out for this feedback manipulator & abuser,
exactly the type of buyer sellers wish they could still leave a negative feedback for.
I am learning so much about different types of agate, are the elongated cylinders agate? I think there is turquoise, jade too...red stone? This piece has so many different aspects, from a selling/buying standpoint, what should I zero in on as far as a good title description? it is unmarked which is add as it is really a beauty! V76
I was poking around Google Search, trying to find an article when I came across these links. One is the announcement, dated 2012 and the other is a page detailing how this works. TRS sellers items marketed on ebay.xiu.com. When I put ebay.xiu.com in the search bar it took me to m.xiu.com (since I'm using a mobile device). I didn't see any mention of eBay. There are two choices, one to download an app or the other to view the site directly. Doing that, I did get choices, like "new arrivals, men's, etc." Upon selecting a category, another page came up showing items (see attached screen shot) but none were clickable for me.
Here is some of the translated homepage:
-2000 daily on new international brands
-Straight imported 100% authentic guaranteed
-Europe and the United States share the world's no need to fly with the same price of goods
Like I said, beyond a certain point, nothing was clickable for me. I don't know if viewing the site from a computer and/or downloading the app, would make a difference.
So, does anyone remember this? Is it still an active concern or a defunct project?
What are your thoughts on this? From reading the page everyone with eligible goods was automatically opted in and the only way to put out, was to contact support by phone.
The other thing, is that these are high end luxury goods, the exact opposite of what is flooding the US site from China.
How to list this piece? Glass "globe" is about 7.5" tall, brass base and top. Clear glass with opalescent swirls. Made to hand from the ceiling. Is it Victorian? Newer? Looking for any specific information regarding age and description. Thanks in advance.
I recenlty bought an item that was send by Global Shipping program. I checked alot of info that tells me that the tracking system can be checked in purchase history but wen i go there i see as tracking number UPAAA000000147655547. I press the number and all i got is this table:
The seller told me he sent the item to ebay depot and until there there is a tracking number and the item was delivered but nothing more.
I tried to contact eBay an even Pitney Bowes, but no response. Can someone help?
The item was delivered at the depot in 29/01/2016 and its supposed te rech the destinanation from 2 to 6 of February so 2 more days until the last day. But i have no idea of where the item is.
Postage costs $2.54. The ebay "discount" added 6 cents to bring the total cost of shippting to $2.60. What gives?
This does not look very old, but I am trying to find out where it is from. It looks to me like maybe Peru or Columbia, but hoping someone knows something about this and what the significance is.
Was just made aware of the existence of this wine today, and thought some here would get a kick out of it (from a bit north of elheron):
You know the drill, nothing listed, keep photos smaller

Looking for info on Franklin pottery tiles. Are these old, of the old Franklin Pottery company? They are hand-painted and signed. It looks like someone wrote over part of one of the signatures.
They measure about 4 1/4" to a side. They have "Franklin" molded on the back.
Any help is appreciated!
Hi hope someone can help ID age style, technique? any info is appreciated, I want to list it so any idea of how you would title the auction would be appreciated. There was a TV guide from 1958 in it so I know its at least that old. Thanks!

The sale date was 1/22, I wrote to seller and they sent me the tracking number.
I already had that and it shows stuck in CA. I emailed usps and called them.
I have waited on hold forever and got no response from email.
I wrote to the seller again requesting a refund so I may order item again from somewhere else
and I have not heard from them. I opened a case at the resolution center but would like my part sooner because I need it.
What else can I do?
Is it a scam?
The seller has good reviews...
I've been through 4 books and about an hour on the internet to no avail. Ykk zipper and black and white/Japan tag,
I had to draw it as my camera cannot get a clear enough picture, it could be upside down...huge multi fasceted stone surrounded by black cut stones, they could be very dark blue, if I can get my hands on a flashlight I can possibly light them up, I'll get back with that, Thanks, V76
This tapestry was framed and the fabric was the backing. How old and who made it (country)? Also, how should I clean the fabric? The tapestry was also tacked with thumb tacks that say "Rekord" Thanks for your help!
This thing is drop dead gorgeous and in superb condition. But I'm stumped as to the age it might be. The primitive pin says old, but the riveted construction, I don't know. It's heavy, it's pretty clean - just a couple of small discolored spots, and the stones are fab. I don't think the clasp ever had more than what's there - no sign of anything else having been attached, and the way the hinge is made looks old, it's just the sides of the bar folded up. What say you all?

This 15 or 16 inch doll was purchased on a military base near San Francisco, CA--probably sometime between 1973 and 1979. The box has pink, blue, and white stripes, and the number 2625 is stamped on it next to the price tag (which also says 2625 on it). The doll's eyes are blue and can open and close.
Even knowing the name of the manufacturer would be helpful, as online searches have yielded nothing. Thanks in advance!
Could anyone please help identify this painting and possibly the artist? Any help would be greatly appreciated. The painting is oil on canvas and the size is about 14” x 18” H.
Good looking buckle, what kind of stone? Would it be considered semi-precious? Thank You for looking, V76
I have this tussie mussie posy holder marked on the bottom and would appreciate any help I can get with who made it. Thanks, Carolyn
Also I need help with this Cameo, is it shell, I can see thru it and it is very cold and convex.
Some listings that I've been relisting are showing a blank pic thumbnail after relisting, they were fine before this relist. They seem to show up in the search result listings but not in "My Ebay" Active listings. Same pics, good quality using 8 to 16 megapixel camera...what happened?
Any help would be appreciated.
I have seen leather horses like mine dated from 1895-1909 & from the 1960's. Do you have any idea how to date this horse or any other helpful information?
He stands about 18" and I believe he has glass eyes.
Thank You for your help.
I have this book "Impression of Xi'AN" It has no publisher name or date. It doesn't even have an author's name. And to make it more unsual is there are actual uncirculated stamps and enbedded in the back cover is what appears to be very old coins.
I will have to post pictures in several posting as they are too large to put in 1.

Trying to identify the location & buildings in this photo. I believe taken in late 1930s-1940s.
Based on source, I believe most likely Florida or California area.
Building in front has large owl figures & shell architectural detail between large center square pane windows.
So, I am assuming it is a school or library building. The arched windows makes me think it has a church affiliation.
Building in background has unusual uneven stepped tall corner tower.
I know I have seen this building before but can not remember/place it.
Thanks for any help.
This belonged to my great aunt. I found this engraving in a horticultural magazine from 1865. This advert was for a spice that was meant to put on cattle food. Its about 2 1/2" long and 1" wide. Any idea on a value so I can list it on ebay? Thanks for the help.
I went through some of the Gotheborg pages trying to id this mark but no luck so far.
Does anyone recognize this mark?
Is is Japanese?
Is this a rice bowl? It holds one cup of liquid and measures 2 inches tall and 4 1/4 inches across the lip.
The stripes are gilt.
Thank you for any help.
I know this is probably a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone had seen this hallmark before. At least I think its a hallmark, Im really not even sure about that. Its teeny tiny little script on the ring, and another tiny touchmark on the bale that may be the makers intitials, looks a bit like a CV?
It tests for 12 kt gold but Id feel a lot more comfortable if I could just figure out what the word says.
ive seen a few otehr vintage lucky 13 charms taht were similar, from Italy and France. This doesnt look like anything I canfind from those places, tho.
Thanks for taking a look!
Hello, can you tell me your opinion on this Francie? She came to me nude, and I dressed her in this Hair Happenins dress. Also, she came on a non TNT body, though that doesn't necessarily mean anything
I thought she was a Hair Happenin doll (head, at least), but her coloring is so much better than any and the hair style is different, too. The hair doesn't LOOK like it has been cut, but maybe it has. I was thinking maybe she was a TNT doll that lost most of its curl?
Thanks so much for looking, and for any info
I am at a loss.....my sales have completely dropped off a cliff. I am a TOP RATED PLUS seller and recently I often have to search pages and pages deep to even find my listings and sometimes I cannot find them at all. Also items that are selling like hotcakes right now are not even getting views. I have 5 auctions running right now for Nike Huarache 4 LE Lacrosse cleats that when I look at sold listings appear to be selling steadily...yet several of my listings have less than 10 views after being up for several days now. I am not the cheapest or the highest priced on my items...im in the middle. But If you look at my listings like my Nike Huarache Lacrosse shoes listings I beleive my listings are of a pretty high quality and my feedback backs up that quality...so why are my listings getting such low view counts? I thought being "TOP RATED PLUS" meant your listings go to the TOP. Any suggestions. I cant event cover my ebay fees at this sales rate. If this keeps up I will be forced to close my store. I did far more sales BEFORE becoming TOP RATED PLUS than I do now....far more.
Signed......confused, scared and more confused.
My Nike Huarache listing to use as an examle:
Just wondering how or why a Lang Rooster wall calendar from 2013 could sell for over $900. I have several of these calendars from past years that I have listed recently most for under $10 that are not selling. I did a search of SOLD similar items and just came across one that someone sold for over $900! I have one just like it that I haven't listed yet. What do you think is the deal here? It makes no sense to me. The attached photo is one I have had listed from another year that is representative of the type I am referring to. Could this be some type of a test listing?
I get this sometimes. FYI, none of my listings have best offers nor do I deal with price negotiating (unless it's a bulk amount). A buyer messages and offers to pay a discounted price for 3 units. I would have rejected their offer saying I don't negotiate and let them move on. But I noticed they already purchased the 3 and paid full price before I had a chance to respond.
So what would you do? Ignore the message? Respond, thanking him for the purchase but giving him bad news rejecting his initial offer? What are the chances that response might upset the buyer, now that they can leave bad feedback since they bought something?
I remember a few weeks back the whole problem with printing labels under the new First Class Package Rules. As per the USPS 15-15.99 oz is OK but 16 oz is NOT. The problem is on ebays shipping label board it has 15 then 16 oz listed. I know there was problems with 16 oz labels so has this been fixed? Will a 16 oz label print as 15.99?
I sold an item and it was packed well, buyer even commented but still got broken in transit. The buyer is requesting I refund them.
I put insurance on the item for when it was sent. The buyer sent photos of the broken item so I don't doubt it.
BUT they don't want to go deal with Australia Post and have already thrown the item out and the rubbish collection has happened the very next day. Seems weird that they don't want to claim and then threw it out immediately, the night they contacted me.
They have requested I do the "honourable thing" and give them a refund..... has anyone else had this? I know I want to say "Sure, send it back to me" but as far as I am concerned it was insured so they should present the item at the Post Office.
I am inclined to tell them to go jump but I must be getting more pleasant in my old age..... or trying.
Today somebody bought a volume set of audio books from me for £30.00 with free P&P. I have had these Audio CDs for sometime. They were given to me as a from a shopping channel but I barely touched them and only ever listened to a couple of the CDs once. Well as I was packaging them I checked the CDs just to be sure they were all in place as I did look before but didn't notice until today that the CD of Volume 1 is a duplicate of Volume 3. So there is no Volume 1 but I always assumed there was. I feel absolutely terrible and I shouldn't have assumed. I am letting the buyer know about this obviously to ask if they still want thte items. But should I also offer a partial refund?
Thanks in advance
Does anyone have any experience with this program?
Is it good, bad ?
I'm always skeptical of ebays stuff that's supposed to be " better " for sellers.
I'm wondering in TaxAct, at what point I will come across Schedule C?
Do you go under "INCOME" and then select "BUSINESS INCOME OR LOSS"? Is that where Ebay sales go?
Let me get this straight, A seller is penalized for a bad buyer. I had a listing with a other buyers and the winner emailed me this
--- Hi unfortunately i m going back to my country. I m not able to buy the watch
So before I have any chance of re-listing I have to wait for this buyer to confirm. I am confused, I have an email saying they are not paying. Ebay should be able to view that and put me back at 0 immediately
Is there a way for a seller to keep others from seeing my purchases in my buyer feedback? I think it's a bit kreepy that ebay allows anyone to view what I've purchased in the last year and ebay does not allow sellers to set their buying feedback to "private". I don't understant the logic of this.
I have 183 positive and ZERO neutral or negative purchases in 12+ years. Today I made an offer and immedeiately received a message that the seller is NOT accepting offers from me at this time. **bleep**? !
Seems like I have been blocked from this seller, any legit reasons why?
Thanks for your input.

THIS was JUST RELAYED to me by my Postal Clerk.
There you go... 2-3 delivery took almost a WEEK.
This answers the: "Where is my package ? " question.
So, eBay will ASK the Buyer: was your item delivered in the estimated time ?
And Buyer might answer NO... a DEFECT on the Seller rating.
Buyer might even leave a comment of dissatisfaction on the Seller's Feedback.
The question exists:
What should the Seller have done to FIX this problem ?
Most of my items, if not all, will be at around 5 - 6 inches tall (12 inches max) and they will all weigh between 8 ounces or less to 2 pounds.
In my case, it would be more cost effective for me to go with USPS First Class shipping (offering free shipping to customers) instead of Flat Rate shipping, correct?
I have since been informed that First Class has a maximum weight of 13 ounces. And Flat Rate is only cost effective when sending heavier items that 2 pounds. What other cost effective alternatives do I have? What do you guys use? What about International shipping?
I made a seller an offer on a wallet. he countered and I accepted and paid. 24 hours later I get a full refund, no explanation. I contact seller who says that the wallet had peeling leather so he didn't want to sell it. Fair enough, but immediately after sending my refund, seller relists it (with no mention of peeling leather) at the original price ($4.00 more than I paid). I rcontacted the seller but got no response. I know I can leave negative FB and am probably well out of this transaction but it seems to me that the seller should be held accountable for his selling practices and tactics. I thought there used to be a link to report problems with sellers but can no longer find it.
Well that's what the auctioneer called it. I don't know what it is and was hoping someone could help me out. 11 1/2 inches long, 5 1/4 at the widest point, stands about 4 inches high, legs are a little over an inch long, the "tub" is about 2 1/2 inch deep. Weighs 4 lb. 4 oz. All metal. I'll try to answer any questions. Photos coming up
I've sold several small weight item in the last few days. The packages average 2-3 ounces. The buyer is charged $2.54 for shipping but when I as the seller go to print of the label is charges me $2.60. Plus, I have to pay 9% commission on top of that. What's going on here? Is anyone else having this issue?
Hello everybody !
Is there a way to know how many items were purchased on ebay since being signed-up?
I mean the easiest way- Not complicated calculations on paypal...
Hi, Someone is asking for the serial number for the computer I am selling. Is that normal and safe? I thought you weren't suppose to give that out, but I have no idea. Thanks in advance.
I have a buyer who purchased a sticker from me back in August 2015. Back then he admitted to managing to split the backing paper and then damage the item. He was very polite and left positive feedback so I decided to return the favor and send him a replacement. Since then he has claimed he has never received it, thus I ended up resending a 3rd sticker which he too claimed to have never received (both 2nd and 3rd were sent without tracking to save on cost). All the while I offered him the choice for a refund or resend - he obviously chose resend each time.
Now (almost 6 months later) he has written to me on ebay messaging swearing like a sailor calling me all kinds of things for having "not received it" once again.
I began the reporting process but when I get to selecting the item number along with the buyer’s ID it is not available as it has been more than 90 days since the sale… and therefore cannot continue the reporting process.
What is one to do?
I'm selling a pair of shoes and the buyer wants my information and to verify the authenticity of the shoes by having the manufacturer check them out. I'm fine with having them checked out, but giving my information sounds a little too much.
Why does eBay even give a one time passcode when the system never asks for it and it takes upwards of five minutes to confirm why you're calling and what the user ID is? It even says, "This passcode will identify you when you call so we can provide faster service."
The figurine appears to be ceramic and stands 7" tall. A little girl in a bonnet is sitting reading a book and eating an apple at her back is a white cat. The mark on the bottom says limited edition 1200 series and has what looks like JJ in a crown. I have seen a JJ Ceramics out of Canada but I am not sure that is the maker and what year do you think it is from? Thankyou for all help.
How does one change what location shows in the listing? I recently changed my address, but my old town is still showing. What do I need to do?
Thanks in advance
I am trying to revise my listing to include a Buy It Now option. I have 8 days left on listing.
Is this possible?
If I choose these options (Like in the pic), will it be 15 dollar for russian federation, but for the rest of the world 8 dollar?
Or worldwide will be first priority and will make all countries 8 dollars?
is it okay for a buyer to ask what my minimum price is for Buy-it-now listing with best offer option?
If so, I will reply.
If not, how should I reply?
I recently acquired a large box of old laces from an estate. Some have tags that came from Paris, New York and Chicago. This looks to be Chantilly or Bobbin Lace to me and it's stitched on a large length of gauze. Can you tell me if it's bobbin lace or machine made? And why was it stitched on gauze? Was that for shipping? I hope my photos do it justice.
I'm a new seller, I sold my first item. But the buyer won the item on January 30th. I send an invoice and then try to contact to ask if I help with more days for payment. What I do now? Thanks
I just starting selling about a month ago and would like to ask for several buyers to leave feedback for me.
I've browsed around in the feedback forum and haven't found anything on the topic. Wasn't sure if it's ok to request.
Basically I bought an iphone from a seller and two months after I found out it had a bad IMEI. I made a case (this was back in Jun 2015) and the seller never replied to ebay automatically ruled in my favor. I got my money back and got to keep the phone.
Then yesterday, more than 6 months aftter, the seller sends me a text message saying that they were gonna sue me for the "false claim" i made and that I was going to pay. I checked the phone and saw that they cleaned the IMEI by paying whatever it was that they owed to at&t.
Can the seller do this, specially if they cleaned the IMEI after the ebay case was closed?
I am an artist, and have been an active ebay seller since 2001.
I sold a 10 inch tall, hand painted horse statue to a buyer recently. I marked the condition as "used", and added the following to the condition description:
"Each item is painted by hand, and may have minor flaws, (not including scratches or damage). No guarantee of live show ability is implied. No piece of artwork is without imperfections- whether it be a slight texture to the surface, dust in the finish or other minor flaws. Please note that I do not accept returns for these minor imperfections! Finding flaws (such as a bumpy finish) on the model is not an acceptable reason for return. I am not able to create artwork as smooth as an original finish Breyer, please take note of this before bidding!"
(I do this, as some buyers might take out a magnifying glass and find various things they consider to be flaws. There is a hobby where people take their miniature horses to compete in shows, and I know my statues do not meet the standards for that. I repeat the above statement in the body of each listing, to make sure it is seen.)
I also have a "sales terms and policies" statement at the end of the listing. (But I know that doesn't mean a thing on ebay.)
The buyer wrote me a few times after receipt of the item, regarding getting a lower price on another item that was already on sale. I didn't answer, as she had asked several times about discounts and I had said "no". When I didn't answer (within hours), she sent me photos of the statue she received, claiming it had all sorts of flaws. I asked her if she'd like to return it, and here is her reply:
I don't want to return him I just wanted to let you know and I have messaged you a few times about giving me a discount on the leopard American Saddlebred but haven't heard back from you?"
I answered her and said that if I wanted to take offers, I'd put up a best offer button on the listing. I thought that was the end of it.
Next thing I know, she opens a "not as described case" against me, PLUS goes to an online (miniature horse collector) forum and starts a crazy bashing fest about my artwork (a bunch of flamers/trolls joined in). I found out about it from third parties. It has actually turned into an online bullying thread, making all sorts of nasty comments about me personally!
The "flaws" are invisible to the naked eye, so she put up enlarged photos on her ebay case, pointing out miniscule things I could have never seen or thought of as a "flaw". I realize that ebay will always side in favor of the buyer, so that's why I asked her to return it. I know now I'll have to take the "hit" of paying for shipping both ways, even though for regular returns the buyer would have to pay shipping and a 15% restocking fee for buyer's remorse.
I am very upset by the online bullying. Not just on a personal level, but what it is going to do to my business. I am disabled, and like many ebay sellers, this is my only source of income.
What would you do? Can I get some suggestions on how to protect myself in the future? (I realize anything the buyer comes up with, will require me to accept any return without charging a restocking fee, and covering shipping both ways.)
One last thing- ebay has a "refund due date" listed on the case. Does that mean the buyer must get a refund by that date whether or not they return the item? (I had the bad experience once with ebay sending a refund, even though the buyer never returned the item. )
Thanks in advance!
Is there a way to print all of my packing slips every day at once? Love doing this with my shipping labels! Appreciate your feedback.
my husband bought a truck paid down payment and want to go get the truck, the seller will not give his address or phone #
Is that not strange? How long before he can report this?
My current paypal balance is 1.70. I need to offer a buyer a 2.60 return shipping label but don't have enough.
So, my question is: Can I still offer? If the buyer accepts it, can the rest of the 2.60 be taken from my bank account?
