The seller`s original description is  I quoted Used very little like new.

 

But what seller sent me was a nasty watch and full of dirt and scrach in the photos  .It likes The Gold Watch in movie pulp ficiton.

 

I opened a return request  and seller didn't responed  so ebay step in and aproved the return.

 

But now the seller didn't  admitted this at all ,blame all responsibilities on me and eBay , won't  refund me even I return the item and return shipping .

 

 And seller  just offer to sent  me the original  accessaries which he claims found after sent me the item.

 

How can sent these informations to ebay and other buyers ?

Is 'like new ' mean nasty on eBay now ?

   I wrote a listing description. I spaced between each numbered description detail. I listed and then see that my paragraphs are all run together in to one paragraph. SO hard to read. I have tried revising 3 times and still I can't  make it list as I typed it. Could this be a problem with my Java? I'm frustrated and...can't figure out what's going on. PLease help. The item listing number is 121467693515. Thanks for any help.

Native American Indian basket tray?

I listed an item for $35 with FREE shipping or Best Offer. Received an offer of $25 with the notation:

 

InfoShipping is not included in the offer price.

 

What does this mean? Is the buyer offering $25 for the item alone, without FREE shipping, and offering to pay for the shipping cost?

 

Or does it mean shipping terms remain as listed and are not part of the negotiated price either way?

 

I don't find any clear explanation of what is intended by this notation, obviously added by eBay. If the latter meaning was intended, it would be better worded as "Shipping terms remain as listed and are not a part of the negotiation."

Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

Today was the best thrift store treasure hunting day ever! I found this Emanuel Shary painting for $29! But, I wasn't sure being behind glass, and I spent 20 minutes with my little magnifying glass looking at it from all angels until it was finally the white hairs of his beard that convinced me it just may be a real pastel or charcoal or colored pencil.

Like an idiot when I got home I immediately started trying to get it out of the frame to see if it was real or not - without taking pictures of it in the frame + breaking the glass protecting it in the process because I was so nervous (but thank God not hurting the painting)

I knew immediately it was real from the feel of it, but I had no idea if I had a pastel, a colored pencil drawing or charcoal. I am still not sure, but believe it is a pastel because looking Schary up I saw he has worked with pastels.

 

How do you tell a pastel painting from a colored penciled one? Or a charcoal one (if they have colors other than black)

It has a almost soft gritty/powdery feel (best way I can think to describe it), and I'm guessing pencil would be more smooth?

 

The back of the paper has some unusual letters & numbers; maybe they tell what paper it is and the time period?

 

Any idea how to find out the painting's name? - Most of his original paintings that I've found have a title.

 

I GREATLY appreciate any help with this - I want to list it correctly so hopefully this beauty will help me pay off the new pvc plumbing I had to completely replace when my 50+ yr old cast iron system finally collapsed!

I so rarely find any deco around here..wanna list it right.  But I think the more I research the more I confuse myself.  

 

1)Is it called Paperclip or peanut chain?

 

2)Would it be called a drop, lariat, or negligee necklace?  And would the 'choker' term apply here or no? The total length is 13 1/2" with a 3" drop  

 

3)And what type of cut are the clear glass beads? All I can think of is multi-faceted rondelles. (maybe polished?)  They have nice flat tables...love the stacked design

 

Anyhoo..I appreciate any help!

I am selling some things for a consignor.  She swears that these pins are from the 40's.  I know what are good signature names on costume jewelry (Weiss, Kramer, etc.) but not items that are unsigned.   One of the ceramic penguins has what lookes like OSTONE.   There is a word above it that starts with a B, but the pin hardware has the rest obscured.  What is your opinion of these, and thank you?

010.JPG006.JPG       The earrings are Trifari and have gorgeous blue stones but the metal looks tarnished and they're in need of clear baguettes.  You can see on the Juliana that some of the beads have peeled.  Don't know if this is repairable or not.   I thought maybe the green brooch was juliana because of the carved type stones but generally have just found the oval stones like that.  That piece is just missing one of the molded marquise stones.  Anyway, these are a few of the lot of items I have that need repairs or for harvest but can't decide if I want to take the risk of listing a lot nowadays.

I'm leaning towards some type of agate, but figured I'd ask first just in case someone recognizes it.  VERY dark stone, but in the sunlight there's clear lines or "layers" so to speak.  It's a chantille style pin brooch combo, sterling and copper,  probably 70's I'm guessing.  Only marked "925".  Thank you for any suggestions!

OMG, can eBay not leave ANYTHING alone!?  Every time I come here, it's different.  Had to Google for a link to this category, couldn't figure out how to find it otherwise.  ::sigh::

 

Anyway.  I recently purchased a teapot which is out of my usual collecting focus.  My research indicates it is "American Belleek", with a mark indicating it was made by Lenox between 1906-1924.  I noted that many other teapots with this mark have similar handles and finials, apparently a common design trait.  However, I cannot find another one like this.  I would like to know if this shape has a name, or belongs to a specific line.  The quality is exceptional compared to the Thirties and Forties colorware I usually collect, the only imperfections I can find are a few tiny glaze pops and a glazed over crumb.  I was wondering, as most of the other pots I saw are very ornately decorated, if this would have precluded it from being decorated, and designated it as a second, or was it meant to be starkly elegant and simple?  I do intend to list this pot to finance my own obsession, so would also be interested in an opinion of what a collector might pay for it (yup, I know book values are worthless!)  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Hope I haven't messed up with these pics, last I knew, eBay auto-resized them if they were too big?  Would also appreciate any gentle advice on what for me, is yet another "new format" for these boards.

ID Depression glass

This piece is 10 3/4 inches in height and made with a reddish brown pottery.  It appears to be a bartender and he is holding a bottle inscribed "vinho do porto" which I believe is Portuguese for "port wine."  It appears to be old, lots of crazing and some rippling to the glaze in the back that has chipped off a bit.  No markings on the bottom.

 

I haven't been able to find anything like it.  Any help with age, origin and key words for listing purposes would be great.  Thanks!

Dear Members,

 

I am new to eBay and would like to ask a question regarding a shipping calculator available in my listings in an ebay store. The seller is located in Australia.

 

I would like to be able to have this on my listings:

 

Shipping calculator

 

Will this calculator work in Australia so that buyers can enter their ZIP code and get varying rates for shipping based on their location?

 

Or do I have to use a 3rd party plugin to implement such functionality in my auctions? If so do you have any recommendations regarding such plugins?

 

I will appreciate your help!

Can Anyone ID the Mark On This...

Hi all,

 

I have this cup and saucer with the Capodimonte marks.  The marks are different so I do not know if this set is a marriage set or it made

slightly different on purpose.

 

The mark on the cup has what I think are initials of EPP, do those initials mean anything special?  Also, the saucer mark has three dots, does that mean

anything?

 

Any idea on age for this set?  Saucer is 5" diameter and cup is 2-3/8" tall so this is small.

 

Thank you for looking and any help.

And I received finally the item at the Nahariya city where I live from the hands of a Israel Postal Authorithy employee who said me that the item was not delivered at Tel Aviv as in the tracking of Ebay was declared.

 

Without a real tracking number and a real information is impossible to obtain any information about the item.

 

If any attempt of delivery is done and in the box is clearly visible the purchaser telephone, is not the transporter obligation to make a phone call?

My address is in Nahariya City, far from Tel Aviv 200 kilometers....

 

Could I accept as logical an attempted delivery in Tel Aviv in 2 oportunities?

 

Twice a mistake?

 

I have opened a non delivery case because this lack of information !!!! Ebay with this Global Shipping Service is endangering the good feedback of the sellers and buyers.....

 

I prefere sellers that ship via USPS, UPS, DHL or any serious international courier service.......

Here's another mystery mark - Shaw - possible Military teapot? I could use help identifying...teapot  770.jpgteapot  771.jpg

Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

I strayed far from my usual and picked up this lovely jar today.  It looks like it may have had a lid once.  I thought the design and decoration was marvelous, and it's a nice, heavy, sturdy piece.  What little I can see in the murky depths leads me to believe that it may have been wheel thrown, and assembled in a couple of sections.  Though I know that there is some serious talent out there re. making things look old... this looks, to my untrained eye, to have some genuine wear.  I can see where the design (different on both sides) was drawn on in spots, it does have fine crazing, plus glaze flaws.  It is 9" high.  Oh, please don't tell me it used to have someone's grandma's ashes in it...

 

I guess I would like to know:

1) What is/was it?

2) Approximate age

3) Keywords I can use to do a little research

4) How long I should cry if I break it.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Art Deco Pottery What Is It?

Hi Everyone,

I have these two sets of clothes. The pink undies set has a Made in China tag and I do not see any tags in the other outfit. I do not know if they are Barbie clothes or another 11.5 doll.  I have had these posted on both Barbie Groups with no response.

  

Questions

 

 

1. Does anyone know if these are Barbie clothes if so could you tell me what outfits they are?

 

2. If no one knows if these are Barbie clothes can I list them as "Fit 11.5 size dolls including Barbie?"

Wow. Amazon is getting hammered. 21% down for the year and is reporting a "huge" quarterly loss and is expected to drop of 12% "more" on Friday. And some of you thought Ebay was bad. Do they have a seller message board there? There has got to be "more" anger there than here.

I have been shopping for some Callaway golf clubs and ran across several listings. As I always do before bidding on an item, I try to research the seller to make sure they appear legit.  I noticed right away that this selller has HUGE feedback.  Then I noticed that the positive feedback many times were left from the same buyer.  I didn't think much of it at first because I've purchased multiple items from the same seller before.  But then it stuck out like a sore thumb to me that this happens over and over again.  On the sellers feedback page, when I view the items sold and then I click on the buyers hyper link I can see the % of bids with that peticular seller, most of the time it is 75-90% range.  So this seller is apparently covering their negative and neutral feedback scores with fake purchases.  This is also convienient for the seller to run up bids or maybe NOT sell some thing because the price was too low.  I've tried to report it but who knows if eBay will do anything about it.

Hello

 

Can anyone please tell me how to close Ebay store ? I have opened it a few days ago but I didnt get any free listings yes I know Im new but anyway nowhere in the instructions does it say that you must be hare a whole century to get this limit.

 

Then I went to ebay.de open account and as a new user I have now 500 listings there, its a little weird but its true and probably I will stay there.

How to close store

I just started selling on eBay a few months ago and already about feedup with all of this crooked stuff going on with eBay & PayPal.

Ever since,I started selling I always used eBay to print shipping labels.When ever a item sold I printed the shipping label in under 12 hours after buyer paid.Every item that I sold was in the mail with in 24 hours."Same day Shipping & Handling".

I learned today that eBay gave me a low rating for handling time.

Same-day or 1-day handling 5 of 8 (62.50%)This is wrong! All of my transactions was shipped within 24 hours.
91.30% of your transactions had tracking uploaded within handling time and validated by carrier

95.65% Tracking uploaded
(22 out of 23 transactions) Tracking uploaded within handling time 91.30% This is wrong!!!!All of my transactions was uploaded within handling time.
(21 out of 23 transactions) Tracking uploaded and validated by carrier 95.65%(22 out of 23 transactions)

 

Validated by carrier?What????!!!!!....USPS waits till the next day to scan their packages and I get low rated for USPS!!!Not right at all...

eBay is a big lie!Providing false information.Weeding is what eBay is doing.Weeding the small sellers out to make room for China sellers.

 

I see,PayPal announced their changing their 45 day buyer protection to 180 days starting Nov,18th.(PAYPAL ANNOUNCED)

eBay has not announced a word about eBay's Buyer's Protection Policy to -date.(EBAY HAS NOT ANNOUNCED A WORD)

 

Let's put this puzzel together,

eBay didn't make their profit goal this quarterly.eBay's ship is sinking.

eBay and PayPal will be splitting,parting ways starting the second half of 2015.

PayPal is saying bye,bye to eBay because,eBay's ship is sunk.

What other online platform alway's had a 180 day buyers protection policy.AMAZON.

In order for Amazon to accept PayPal.PayPal must change their buyers protection to 180 days which they did.

If you notice,eBay hasn't changed their 45 day buyers protection policy.EBAY HAS NOT ANNOUNCED A WORD.

All of us sellers may as well follow PayPal to Amazon..................

So I'm bidding on an item and it keeps telling me Ive been out bid. Ive increased my bid amount a few times but the current bid price never changes? I've refreshed my page a few times . what's going on?

Bidding & Buying discussion

In 15 plus years we may have posted 1 or 2 times but this situation is just to much fraud.

 

We have been a top rated plus gold seller for many years I think the account is past the 15 year mark now. We refund everything no matter what.  I describe ebay as a wild and sometime wonderful place to buy and sell from.  But then every few years eBay shows me exactly why we choose to put our energy into every other avenue other than eBay to grow our business.  

Why I refuse to allow ebay to become more than 10% of who we are as a business.  

 

This just happens to be on our buying end.  We purchase a Le Creuset pot that was described as new with a few scratches.  When it arrived that was not the case at all! The seller is brand new with no seller rating and only 126 feedbacks. Which we all know are fake postives as sellers are gagged when it comes to feedback.   MY FIRST MISTAKE, buying from a non rated seller!  

 

MY SECOND MISTAKE caring about the other seller. "We did not file against the "NEW" seller and open a case first".

We put the pot back into the same box, very well padded and returned it to the seller.  

 

We emailed and had a friendly exchange, fully expecting to get a refund and not have a mark against the brand new seller. The package was returned and a week later we had not seen the promised refund, we emailed and the issues started. The seller claimed the package was damaged in shipping and refused to refund.  We filed with eBay then with UPS. The seller refused to allow UPS to look at the pot and damage.  

 

This all ended with: eBay allowing the seller to keep the returned pot and our money.  UPS did not pay for insurance because the seller refused to allow them to see the damage. The seller is now refusing to return the pot even on our UPS account at our expense. 

 

So lesson re-learned:  Can you figure out where my money will be spent from now on???? 

 

 

Bidding & Buying question

I just sold something, and it turns out it was an international sale. I completely forgot I opted in to the global shipping program. Otherwise I never intended to ship anywhere but domestic. But now my buyer keeps asking for an invoice with the price plus shipping. eBay won't let me send an invoice. Also, I am confused as to whether I charge shipping just to the processing center (which is somewhere in Kentucky but can't find anything more that that), or do I charge anything more than the selling price of the item, and do they pay eBay for the international shipping? The buyer is in Italy. The item sold was an iPhone. It sold for 91.00. Somewhere the sold item shows a shipping fee of $22.09. I wish I hadn't opted for this. Then I might actually have my money by now. Please help!!!

Global shipping frustration

I can't see any details on the "return", but it looks like another SNAD claim in disguise. Of course, on a listing with NO returns.

 

AFAIK, the money was not refunded , and the buyer "closed" the return voluntarily.

 

However, I'm wondering if this will now count as a defect on my account, and if it does , isn't that a malicious seller attack?

 

Thanks!

Selling discussion

I put an item up for sale and put that the actual shipping cost would be added after the sale.  How do I do that now?  I can't find a place to actually add it and I look at the invoice and it is saying free to the buyer.  Help, please!

He told me that I will have the new item in 15 days and it has been over a month(43 days) and item didn't arrived. I contacted him, and he told me that item may have been lost and he was willing to send me another one. After that he doesn't answer my messages and I don't know what to do.

Bidding & Buying question

if you've set a po box shipping restriction in your site preferences, is there a simple way to waive that restriction on a case basis for a reputable buyer choosing usps shipping to their po box (i.e. without revising the overall site preference restriction)?

there's evidently some way to allow this at the time of purchase if a buyer does something (which isn't clear to me)?

po box shipping restriction

I sold an item yesterday afternoon. I shipped/dropped off the item at the PO this afternoon. That's one business day like my listing said.

 

As I was printing out the postage this morning, I see the buyer has ebay mailed me asking when i was going to ship the item. Apparently she bought an item on Wednesday and expected it to be on the other side of the country using parcel post (as stated in the listing) by the weekend. I ended up upgrading the ship to priority (im now losing money on the item b/c of this) in hopes.

 

Ive looked through her ratings of other sellers and she's neutreled other people on shipping time too......Anyways....Since she emailed me does that give me an automatic defect?

I was contacted by Paypal today about a transaction Oct 7th. Buyer is trying to get the charge reversed, claiming she didn't buy it. But she did-she even left feedback! I provided the USPS tracking information and Ebay feedback information to Paypal but I don't want to get stuck with a loss even though she clearly received the item. Has this happened to anyone else? Wondering what my chances are..I don't want to take a loss and I don't want this buyer to get my brand new item for free!

how do I ditch this  ?   When  I click my Ebay  on this account  I get selling manager.  On  my other account I don't get selling manager I get the old active selling page  which I prefer.

 

  I know it exists  because I still see it , but how do I change it?  It makes no sense to have selling manager  in an account with only  a few listings.

 

The other account has 100 listings active   you'd think they would have changed that to selling manager.

Help with ID

On my selling ID, I sold a new, sealed DVD and got this message from the buyer:

 

"For positive feedback, please send this ASAP and have the package marked "HANDLE WITH CARE" or "FRAGILE" as well. Note: If you can spare some cardboard, please put a piece in front and in back of the movie to help prevent damage during shipping and/or the DVD coming off the hub in the case. Thanks."

 

Does he want me to remove the shrink wrap and break the seal in order to do this?  Won't that open me up for a SNAD dispute?  

 

I've come here first to get opinions before contacting him.  If I ask him about it and he instructs me to open the DVD in order to package it as he desires, I am seeing two options:

 

1.  Do as he asks and risk a SNAD dispute for sending an opened DVD when the listing states new and sealed.

2.  Ship it as is and risk a negative feedback for not complying with his request.

 

Any advice?  Thanks in advance!

 

If it makes a difference, this is a $3.98 sale.

What are my benefits to having an EBay Store;  I currently list 100 to 200 items per month.  I'm allowed 400 listings per month with 100 free listings per month but all in auction style which only lasts a week.  If I open a basic store do I get my free 100 listings along with my 150 free listings for the store;  AND do the listings include Fixed Listings????   I'd like to list 200 fixed price listings per month....  For Free !!!

Starting an eBay Business discussion

 

At least once a week I'll have a customer make multiple purchases in separate transactions -- because they don't know how to use their shopping cart, decided to add another item later -- plenty of reasons -- buyers do it all the time, ESPECIALLY now that "Commit to Buy" is on the wane. Until this week, it's been no big deal. I just refund any additional shipping they might have paid and upload the same tracking number for all the separate transactions.

 

NOW EBAY WON'T ALLOW THAT, which leaves me with the choice of telling customers, "Sorry but since you bought the items separately, I have no choice but to print separate labels and deny you combined shipping," or accept the strike against my Top Rated Seller status that comes from not uploading a tracking number that gets a scan.

 

I've been through a lot of changes on eBay that I didn't agree with and stayed silent, but this one is far and away the least acceptable. Or is it just me?

Coach Handbag H2H-9026, Real or Fake???

Good morning community,

I have an issue that I am curious as to where others stand and if they have had a similar experience.

I recently purchased an item from a US seller in Louisiana, that turned out to be from an importer in China. 

I am a locavore and while I know a great many of my consumables are not manufactured in the US anymore,

I am willing to purchase items made in China sold by US vendors. I want to keep my dollars in the US, I don't want to spend my money in China. I have political reasons,religious convictions, and most importantly freedom of choice. I am allowed to be delusional, I am unhappy about being deceived. I want to return this item and the seller stipulates no returns. The listing stated it would be delivered via USPS, instead it came via International UPS. No way am I paying to ship this back to China when I thought I was buying from  US seller. I am unhappy with the quality of the merchandise and the deceitful nature of the transaction. This is my first experience of this in 14 years on eBay. Lately I notice a lot of sellers of electronics or health and beauty items that have strange user names and few feedback. I think the community has changed so much and the protections for buyers and sellers haven't caught up with all the scammers. Please help if you can, and sorry about the rant.

since this promo includes 10 day listings AND there is a new policy change to take effect on Nov. 6.......

 

If one should choose to use the "free relist 1x"...THAT freebie would put the listing into the "new" period....would that freebie count toward the "normal" 50 listings?

 

or, is "free", really "free"?

New Promo & a ? re: free delisting

So, basically, I won an auction for an xbox 360 game. I've done it many times before, and I pay right then and there to make it as easy and hassle free as possible.

However this time around, when I went to pay, it asked me to log in to paypal for more information, which I did. Then it said the recepient I was trying to send money to was unable to receive money and I was unable to complete the purchase.

Now I'm stuck with a auction that I won, and I can not pay for. How do I go about fixing this? I don't wanna get punished for an item that I can not pay for. I've messaged the seller and they have yet to respond after 3 days.

I marked US shipping only, not knowing I had to ALSO go into settings and block international buyers until it was too late.

I have no problem shipping internationally, but the shipping cost will be outrageously expensive, at least $50. Can the buyer leave bad feedback if I charge that much? I did not specify any international shipping costs.

They also haven't paid yet, so could I cancel it quickly so I don't get bad feedback?

Can you see my listings?

On Sep 06, 2014 I purchased an item coming from China.  The estimated delivery was from Wed, Sep 24 - Fri, Oct 31.  I have been informed that I have a 45 day time limit to open a dispute.  On Monday the 20th of this month I attempted to do so.

 

That page informed me "It's a little too early to open a case" and I could proceed no further.  The next day, Tuesday the 21st. was the time limit.  I again tried with the same results.  It is now the 24th and past the limit as I understand it.  I still do not have my item and from the negative feedback left by many, (144 negatives in the last month), I probably won't.

 

My question is what will happen if I try to open a dispute after the 31st of this month?  Is the time limit written in stone?  Am I just out of luck?

What tags are acceptable to qualify an item as NWT? Are the makers sewn in tags alone enough or must there also be additional hang on or otherwise attached tags as well?

Selling question

I'm not sure I'm finding the answer on the ebay site.

 

I have a buyer who purchased multiple items.  On all the items, I offered FREE SHIPPING.  Since I can send all the items in one box, it saves me around $10 in shipping costs. Is there a way to adjust the invoice and offer that savings back to the buyer?

Offering discounts for multiple purchases

So I'm not sure if this was shilling or not, but a user who was registered or unregistered (I'm not sure) bid 4 times and raised up the price of an auction that I was bidding on. Upon clicking their member history I see that they are either now unregistered or have been unregistered and were able to bid anyways. I was under the impression that unregistered users could only participate in buy-it-now and not auctions.

 

They have 0 feedback total, 0 from the last 12 months, but have been around since August 2008. I understand why someone would not have any feedback from a year perhaps, but to have this old of an account and no feedback total at all of (0) next to their name?

 

So can unregistered users bid on auctions now? And if not and only registered users can, when they bid and then cancel their account or membership, why are their previous bids while registered still taken into account in the final price of an auction? Or are they?

 

Some insight would be appreciated into this registered/unregistered bidding shilling mess. I admit I may be paranoid but are there any warning signs here?

He told me his daughter bid on the item and he does not want it. He cancels. I went to the sell page, and cancelled the order. Then ebay said I needed to refund the buyer. then ebay posted on my sell item that I couldn't resell it or relist it until the buyer confirmed that I had refunded him his money.
