Hi guys! Am trying to find this old Sonia Rykiel globe and few more items - would love to add it to my collection of Rykiel items! Will appreciate if anyone can help with locating those )))
Cool looking bottle I found with a metal cap that twists to open and close a small hole in the center of the cap. Measures about 7" tall by 4" wide. The words on the cap are in German. The number "153" is embossed on exterior near bottom f piece. There is also an illegibale embossed name ont he bottom.
Is this a talcum powder holder? Something to dispense liquid? Is it missing something or perhaps part of another device? I'm stumped.
I've posted about this twice already and haven't been able to solve the mystery.
How is this possible?
What? It doesn't pick up items that have those words clearly in the title. Yet, when I add MORE words to the search window, it does pick up the items in the search results. See below.
So what gives? How come a search for "Arm's Reach" can't find my listing but "Arm's Reach Blue" can?
Happy Monday everyone.
So I am guessing these are earrings, any ideas on age?
I just picked up this bowl recently. It is unmarked. The exterior is black with a light blue interior. The interior is crazed. The interior has a black "ink splatter design." The exterior has little divots/marks/craters throughout. The base or "foot ring" is unglazed, however the rest is indeed glazed. The bowl's diameter is 5 1/2" at its widest point. The height is 3".
I have no idea how to research this bowl and its origin. Any help is appreciated.
She is about 16 3/4" long. Her eyes close and open. She is all cloth, but the face feels quite hard, like something other than fabric. I think here eyes are glass. When they are closed, her eyelids are somewhat shiny, like plastic. Can you tell me anything about her age or name? Thanks so much.

This is my latest addition to my collection and was trying to at least find a bracelet to match or marry. I have had no luck so far no markings but I love the silver-toned filigree cups in which the red tear drop stones nestle in the detail just amazes me.
This snow plow looks like something out of Mad Max movies!
If anyone out there has any information about thie location of this atomic bomb test, please let me know. Thanks so much.
I got this yesterday from a friend I used to go to storage auctions with. He owns a used furniture store now that he cupplies exclusively through things he finds at auction. He found this in a unit & sold it to me for $50 (with another gold chrome 2 level table) because it isn't something his clients would go for. I jumped o it because I like it - but now I need to know what it is!
I'm guessing a portable bar (the glass shelves were wrapped & marked "Shelves for Bar") like a bar cart or trolley, but it's the first one I've seen that you can unlatch and it swings all the way (or 1/2 way - it looks cool either way) open to become a buffet? or long table? with a smaller lower 2nd shelf on 1 side for glasses, plates, etc.. I think.
But I can't find anything like it. Un less it has a name I don't know, 'Large mid century bar trolley that swings open' doesn't bring up anything similar.
Also, how do I clean the chips & scuffs? It is only along a edge & probably happened from the glass being placed & removed, but where the gold chrome (?) has been lost there is a small amount of rust from the metal underneath being exposed). Should I touch it up with gold paint?
I appreciate any help.
I have come across this napoleonic dresden figural scene in one of my local antqiue stores and wanted to get some opinions on what a "fair" price would be for it. They are asking around $1240 for it now. Assuming its in good condition does this sound like a fair value?
I am a porcelain novice and would love any help or opinions. Thank you in advance.
So this pin is pretty neat I have identified it have been made in the early 1900's. It is unmarked but tests to be 10k-12k. It weighs almost 6 grams. I know that in the early 1920's when they found King Tut's tomb the Egyptian revival sprung up. And some companies were setting real Egyptian artifacts in gold. Do you think this is a real Egyptian artifact? It measures 25mm by 20mm.And if it is real what do you think the value is?
I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask...if anyone recognized this pattern? And maybe help with a description? I learned the stem might be called 'bulbous'. Double boulbus? Also, I think they have 15 panels? I looked at Replacements and found nothing. Appreciate any opinions!
Games? No computer or phone needed for this one!
I'm trying to figure out who made these pretty pieces,no marks on them. The Brooch is 2" in length. The colours are quite nice, but they don't show up very well in the photos. It has been a while since I've posted, hope the photos are okay.
Any ideas appreciated.
Thanks for looking.
The base piece is made of cast iron. It is painted black with gold highlighting. It has Patented Feb 17, 1874 stenciled on the underside. The base is 3" in diameter and it stands about 1 3/4" to the top of the bent spring. I don't think it is electrical as there aren't wire connections and the spring contacts the cast iron base and is not isolated like a heating element would be. Please help. Thanks in advance.
Get some pictures up, folks. Please no live auctions, and keep 'em smallish to speed loading time for tablets, phones, and the dreaded dial-up.
14k and aquamarine, off to its new home.

I would like to use clear FedEx lable pouches like those below to ship packages via USPS. Note that once the paper label is in the pouch, the FedEx logo is not visible. Is this permitted by USPS? I actually cannot find any information about the USPS allowing plastic pouches for labels at all. Do they?
Can you tell me what company might have made these vintage bowls? Bauer, Fiesta or ?????
The rings on the biggest bowl are flat, the rings on the two smaller bowls are slightly raised and rounded.
Thanks for the help
Got this in a jewelry lot. It appears to be a resin material and it's unmarked. Is it just cheap costume?
Hi, I have this really nice swirled art glass vase with no signature.....
The vase is about 8" tall
I can't seem to find anything on this doll maker.... Shirley Coldsmith. They are kind of cute, and made of paper mache. Is anyone familiar with this doll artist?
Anyway, back to this prayer rug that is supposed to be old.... is it? It seems unusual to me because it's flat with no real pile to speak of. Looks more faded in person then some of the pictures show(to me it looks better viewed from the side). Measures approx. 43 X 56 inches. See the pictures below and tell me what you think. Anyone know the area it was made? age? any value(did I waste 45 bucks)? lol
Thanks for any info you can share, greek38
Good morning all. I recently purchased a huge lot of vintage and newer ornaments from an estate and am hoping someone can help with identifying a couple of them. Neither have maker marks. I've found a few that are similar in style, by De Carlini, but not sure if these were made by them or someone else. Any information/help would be greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.
Can anyone help ID this small wall clock? it has a porcelain face and winds with a key. The face has in very faint letters Le Roy (the rest I can't read) It is about 8-10" tall.
Hope someone can help with this. I cannot get the photo any clearer.
Have had other pieces of lace like this and am pretty sure they were hand made. I love the help I receive from knowledgable people here, so I hope I don't drive you nuts asking about my piddly pieces of lace.
These pieces are from a set of tableware I got from my gandmother. She and my mom are no longer around to ask about these pieces -- tablecloth, table scarf, doilies and place mats -- all made with the same thin thread and fragile looking pattern. Has to be at least 25 years old, but could be much older. . . I just don't know and should have asked more questions.
Closeup photos of lace are included. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
Maybe someone will recognize this vase?
I have a large Barbie doll house that has been in storage for awhile. The bottom says 1995 Mexico.
When I try to let down the porch with the columns there is a resistance and I'm afraid to force it
and possibly break it. I know very little about Barbie products but maybe someone will recognise
and know the secret to open it. Probably any child from two up could do it. lol
The back opens easily but when I try to let the front porch with the columns it catches and I feel it
will break. I don't know if its because it's been stored for a pretty long time so I've tried to wash it up
some but so far no go. I have tried to lift it up and out, press down on it, even looked to see if the
columns need to be removed. I really don't think it would be that complicated for a child so I am
asking here since you have a lot of Barbie experts.
Also if anyone knows the name I would appreciate. I did see one that looked pretty close and it
doesn't seem to be one of the more expensive houses but I still don't want to break the plastic.
I am asking this question for a friend. I am hoping to get any information on this piece that you can give me. ( Sorry not the best picture ) but it is pink and plain no design.
Anything at all would be greatly appreciated.!!
Thank you in advance

I recently purchased 2 Griswold No. 18 muffin pans. Although they are the same "model", the markings on each are quite different.
The first muffin pan is made of thinner cast iron than the other. The top handle is marked "GRISWOLD'S" and the bottom handle is marked "ERIE NO 18". The bottom side of the lower handle is marked "6141". There are no other markings.
The second muffin pan has no markings on the top side, but the bottom of each muffin cup has markings that include "No.", "18", "GRISWOLD", "ERIE PA.", "U. S. A.", and "6141". The cast iron of this pan is heavier than the other one.
I presume that the first muffin pan is the earlier one of the two. I've read that there are named variations for this #18 pan. I don't have the Griswold Muffin Pan book, but I was hoping someone reading this thread might have a copy. Specifically, I was interested in knowing which variations these pans are and when they were likely manufactured.
Any knowledgeable Griswold collectors out there who might be willing to assist? Thanks in advance!

Curious about this old set of maps I have. There are five of them and they are about 4' x 3' in size. They are dated 1945.
Tried looking around and don't see any examples. Anyone know if these are fairly common?
Need help identifying. Thank you.
d help identifying this.
After I do this a new tab is created in Adobe with the labels, when I go to print them the first label is fine and then the rest of them are in a font that is so compressed and on top of each other.
Anyone have a solution to this problem?
Thanks in advance.
Was wonder if this necklace is a part of a particular collection? Thanks for all the help/replies.

This vase is just under 10 inches in height and weighs 3 pounds 6 ounces. No signatures or marks. It is ground and polished on the entire bottom. The glass is cased or layered, it almost looks like a vase within a vase. The outside is textured with what looks and feels like drops of glass that were drizzled all over the vase.
When I first saw it on the TS shelf I thought Whitefriars but I am sure it is not by them. After checking it over, the bottom makes me think Murano but I could not find anything like it. I am also thinking Scandinavian might be a possibility.
Any help with the maker, age and origin of this vase would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Can someone possibly tell me what this is? It measures 8 1/2" in length and is made of tin on the base and another metal (the arms, finial). Is it possibly the bottom for an old hanging lamp possibly an old Kerosene or Gas lamp? Any comments are greatly appreciated.I boughtt a box of antique lamp parts and it was among the pieces.
Not looking for an appraisal, but is there any value in these/is it worth my time to list on eBay? Got these old "test tubes" a while back in an auction box lot. I don't know a thing about them. Any information appreciated!
I was told this stone is carnelian; the metal is marked 9K, which I'm assuming is 9 k gold. I'm trying to date the pin; is it victorian? Any value here? The pinback is broken off. Any help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance
Hi guys! I'm new around here, and I know absolutely nothing about this type of stuff...not even sure what category they would fit into - stamps? Ephemera? I was digging around in the bottom of an old box of stuff, and I came across these old envelopes.
One of them appears to be from 1835. The rest are all 19th century it seems. Some of them appear to have slogans and pictures on them. I did a little research on one of them, and I think it's addressed to Senator John W. Denver from Congressman Randall L. Gibson in the year both of them died - 1892. None of them have their actual letters still in them.
I honestly don't know what to make of them. I'd like to display them somehow, but I don't want to do that if they're valuable as they're fairly fragile. Does anyone know much about this kind of thing? Your assistance is much appreciated!!
Looking for help identifying this old teddy. He has a partial sewn in label remaining that I can't make out. He is 12" tall, w/ blond mohair, jointed head, arms, & legs. Minor hump in upper back. Long upturned snout. One glass eye remaining. Small ears, long arms. Sad face. Padded palms & soles. Hard stuffed with wood chips. Sewn in 4-claw lines on paws & feet. Sewn finish seam line up back.
Thanks in advance. I do appreciate your help & wisdom.
This is not marked and could have had a hangtag at one time. For some reason this reminds me of a certain designer, but the light bulb is just not coming on =P. Opinions appreciated!!
Maybe it's just plain old nothing but how would you describe it? Anyone see anything that would tell you an era or age? Anything will help Thanks
How do I select the international site visibility listing upgrade foprt UK? The help files only tells me that I CAN do it to make my listing appear on the eBay UK site, but does not explain how to do it (see below). Also, do I have to do it before submitting the listing, or can I change an existing listing to include UK visibility? Thanks!
There are 2 ways to list your items internationally.
Use the international site visibility listing upgrade.
You can purchase this listing upgrade for some eBay websites, to maximize your item's visibility in search results on those sites.
I'm looking for any help on identifying the maker of this cut glass goblet.
It has a cut stem. The bowl has a half cut flower and foliage, along with slant cuts alternating with ovals on the lower part of the bowl. It has a wide, straight, subtle optic. There are punties cut on the foot.
I've found simliar shapes in Tiffin and Seneca, but not a definite match so far. I'm not as concerned about identifying the pattern as much as the maker. Although if someone knows the pattern, that would be great, too.
They stand just under 8" tall (less than 1/8" under). I have a set of 11 and plan to list them, but it's helps so much to know the maker. I'd also like the opinion of our cut glass experts on whether you think this is a good piece, nice cut or just average. I think it's nice, but I've only been collecting for a couple of years and have much to learn.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
I'm a new seller on ebay and i need your help.
i want to enter the tracking number of the items that i have sold but i can't
i'm living in Jordan and i choose the shipping method outside usa! but it shows me that i have to enter USA address!
i do have one but it doesn't make any sense to enter my USA address!
Hi, Does anyone recognize this porcelain hallmark? Thanks!
There have been recent reports of problems with inserting images into a message. I am using the "insert/edit image" icon. My images generally measure 640x480 pixels or less and under 200 kb each, which are the recommended parameters. But for comparison I will upload a larger image here as well.
402x615 - 125 kb - full size
Same image, medium size
994x1500 - 855 kb - full size
480x640 - 182 kb - full size
The larger image of the 1947 ad took forever to load -- yet it is close to the size that eBay recommends for gallery images -- and in fact disappeared completely after I inserted it here. I don't know yet if it will show up in the finished message. On a message board, a huge image has no advantage at all -- it simply slows the whole process of uploading and viewing, precludes any user on dial-up from seeing the image and presents a blurry, oversized mess.
One way of downsizing an image is to crop for subject (which I did not do for the 1947 ad) and another is simply to edit the image (I use Picasa) and download several sizes to your computer for use in various situations. For example, when I do set my camera to make an image larger than 640x480, I edit the image in the original size, then download versions as 1200, 900 and 600 pixels. The original (usually 2250 pixels) is great for printing an enlargement or submitting for publication (newspaper, magazine or book), while the smaller versions are better for online use such as Facebook, eBay, Twitter, a website or a message board. As you can see from these examples, a 600-pixel image is more than adequate for eBay message boards at full size and is fine at medium size, too.
Bottom line: If the large image fails, then that's a good reason not to use one here. If it doesn't, that's still a good reason not to use one.
EDIT: I got an "invalid HTML" error when attempting to post this message. I did not use any HTML.
EDIT 2: The large image fails to show up.
Hi all, I have this small watercolor painting. I am guessing it is from 50s or 60s. It is signed, but I cannot make out signature. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Need help with ID of this pottery bowl. It has marks on the bottom. Any info appreciated. Even just point me in a direction.
Hi! I'm new around here, and I don't know much about jewelry, especially fine jewelry.
I have a really beautiful brooch that appears to be silver (it's tarnished). It's covered in natural pearls. Has anyone seen this particular design before? Could it be a designer piece? It came with clip-on earrings, but one of them has some pearls missing. I feel like it's probably mid-century, but I'm clueless. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!!
I am teeth whitening producer and I sell it on ebay, over the last couple days I was the TOP seller getting close to 25 sales a day blowing away the garbage chinese sellers that couldn't even compete with my pricing (sucks to be them). But then all of a sudden I disappeared, I couldnt find myself under 'teeth whitening', or 'teeth whitening kit', I had been dropped from the results as if I did something wrong, so lets go over the facts
-Top Rated Seller
-14 Days Money Back Gurantee
-1.42 Defect Rating
-Plenty of Photos
Now Ebay Analytics is very accurate and shows you your position within the search results for a given term, you can use this to track your position.
180% Sell Through, does that really seem like something ebay would want to drop from their pages?
Oh look at rank 4, or the whole page...Where am I to be found? Nowhere, I am not even on the page, my new listing that I placed says im rank 65 for a different item, its like im being purposely hidden from the search results
But wait.. The story get EVEN BETTER
I Called Ebay and I was connected to someone who I spoke with the other day about the same problem, turns out they're having the same problem on their personal account, they've said they were top seller for a specific item and that they've disappeared from the face of the results too, so I am not alone.
Ebay is not telling us something, and I dont want to hear the whole **bleep** about your rating is messed up blah blah, because the CS rep. also said 5 other people before me called about the same problem, so now I want to hear what my fellow ebayers think? Best Match Conspiracy
I'm a new seller on ebay and i need your help.
i want to enter the tracking number of the items that i have sold but i can't
i'm living in Jordan and i choose the shipping method outside usa! but it shows me that i have to enter USA address!
i do have one but it doesn't make any sense to enter my USA address!
I just got a ding on one of my items.. says they arrived broken.. ! They were fine when they left here.. Never contacted me or emailed me. Why are customers allowed to do this??? I just don't get it. Common sense.. Go back to the store first and left them make it right before acting on emotion!
Just venting out loud, I already know how this is going to go down
I had a buyer ask questions about an item and then infer that "it had better be like new ..." so I wound up blocking her. How odd, someone purchases the item 10 minutes later. NOT a coincidence, the item had been listed almost 3 months.
Now, of course, the "buyer" is complaining.
A buyer is not satisfied with his item and I'm offering him a partial refund based solely on trust. After receiving the payment, I presume he can still go ahead and give me negative feedback and no eBay rule would prevent that. What's my discourse on that? Can I message him making it part of the settlement that he cannot and should he still do that, can I email eBay to delete the negative feedback rating from my profile?
I was using the GSP. I had a buyer who managed to skate around that (I posted days ago on that) on an auction. I contacted them and told them that I only use GSP and so they no longer want the item, which is fine. I cancelled it as an address problem.....but even with a few nice messages, they won't agree to the cancelation. The fees are only a few dollars so not a big deal but to I just let the case sit open? Nothing was paid for and nothing was shipped.
Ok.. I went to give feedback on an item I received that I KNOW I did not give feedback on and it says I could not give feedback for that item because feedback was already given...???? Anyone else ever come across this and why?
Does anyone had a luck to get real help from Ebay Customer support?
I had a request opened and every time i try to get the details on the site would say "Oop! We are having technical hick-ups". No matter how deep I tried it will take me back to first or secong page of CUstomer Support?
My issue #1: I haven't received the item for which I paid 5 and half months ago. I gave the benefit of doubt- I gave extra time bcs it was sent back first time bcs of our mail office mistake, and he was seller from Turkey - still 5 and half months - it just too much. The Ebay Resolution Center would not let me open Request bcs Ebay Buyer Protection time is expired. That is why I needed to reach Ebay Customer support. Tried at least 20 times. Am I so dump or simply I should stop buying at Ebay? Such a shame, hence I was happy buyer since 2006 - one can get a really good deals on Ebay.
My isuue #2: I returned the item to seller after e-mail correcpondences 2 months ago. I still haven't received the credit for the item back and emailed the seller guy few times - no responses at all. What should I do as a buyer when seller is not responding nor I can get help or assistance from Ebay Customer Support?
I would appreciate any response and/or any tips!!!

The item I'm wanting to list is very heavy. I don't want to charge too much or not enough. I've seen in other posts that the shipping calculator calculates the cost of shipping to your own zip code. Thanks
Obviously I messed something up with a return...
Someone bought (and obviously wore) a pair of dance shoes. They asked to return them based on wrong size so I clicked to return for a refund and turned out they were at the front door. I went ahead and refunded the original price minus the original shipping as per my return terms. It shows that I still owe them the $9 original shipping cost. It said that it was due by Feb. 5th. Is it okay to just ignore it or is there something that I should do? I cannot find out how to file for a final value fee credit. Can I not file for one if I charge them the orignal shipping fees?
Thanks in advance.
i find alot of good things on ebay. but i think that some r just too high on stuff. they relly go crazy when it comes to bidding ! they will have a great deal on a part or what ever else. then people will get too bidding on something & just bid it beyond reason lol. i wish i had money like that lol.
I'm relatively new here on this board but am reading as much as I can to find out what just happened to me today. I'm still in the dark and would love help.
The auction I was bidding on was running out, my highest bid was still in the green as the clock went to 0. I was 100% sure I'd won, since my (green) bid price was $13.50 and my highest bid left room to go up to $28. Victorious, I went to my summary page to pay for the item. And then I don't see it. So I go back to the item page and see that it was listed as SOLD for $29.
HOW did this happen? I never got any indication that anyone had topped my $13.50. Ever! So then I went to see the bid break-down, and in total disbelief, I saw some bids that happened that I never saw on my end. (See screen shot)
1) How did my counter go to zero with $13.50 showing as my winning bid price (when there was clearly other activity)?
2) How did the winning buyer who hadn't participated at all in the bidding know to bid exactly $29 when they never saw my top bid?
* I will concede that it's possible the item total jumped to $17.50 as I was watching the ticker. Allowing for the fact that my eyes were trained on the ticker going to 0, but I see that there was a bid that came in at $17 (screenshot) and and my automatic bid kicked in at $17.50, so that may have updated on my screen without catching my attention (because the numbers stayed green and there was a .50 on the end of it and everything was still green as I was watching the counter go to 0). So the only real question I still have is #2. How did this super-bidder (see screenshot) swoop in AFTER the clock went to zero. How did they get a bid in? I'm so upset.
I feel like this is incredibly shady, because I just don't understand how it could have happened. Can anyone shed some light? I'm using Safari, in case that makes a difference.
I sold a EVGA GTX 650 Ti boost, and clearly stated as USED. Took a picture with the items that came with the product. Now the item has arrived at the buyer, she wants a return because the item did not come with the cables/connections; DVI.
Exact Quote here" It s bad enough the seller doesn t tell you that the card is missing DVI connections until after I paid for it, but seller said nothing about it also missing the 6-pin power to motherboard cable. The ad says nothing about missing anything. For $161, I expect to have an honest ad or everything included that came with the card in the first place."
What should I do? When I buy used items from Ebayer's I never expect to receive all the components as it was brand new.
I sold an iphone 5 for $150. I made sure to ship the item after it showed the buyer paid for the item. I used ebay to print a shipping label so the tracking information was automatically uploaded. It shows that the item was delievered Monday 1/26/15 however the sell contacted me today 1/27/15 saying they didn't receive the item. What do I do?
Its my first time selling on ebay and I don't want to be scammed by a buyer.
I have an inexpensive item that was bid on by a person who got around my BB list by creating another ID. I have called ebay CS and they said they would take
care of it, that the person indeed was the same, and they were violating Ebay policy. This was 2 days ago and yet HIS BID IS STILL THERE. Ebay gave me a
return contact number for the report. Do I proceed to sell it to him? Item ends in 4 hours and he is the only bidder.
Just noticing I am now being charged .30 insertion fees for my items. I am not a store seller, and simply relist the item if it does not sell. There is no way the six items I am relisting per week, for six days, would exceed the 100 or 150 allotted per month.
Can anyone clarify for me what is going here?
This is probably going to drive me away from ebay once and for all. I am not paying for items to list that don't sell at reasonably listed prices.
I'm about to print my shipping label but my only option of shipment is Fedex. I'm trying to click the dropdown box and select USPS but it doesn't do anything. Before there was some kind of agreement notice from Fedex, but now I can't select USPS. Is this a bug or did something happen? My original listed item was for USPS First Class.
Customer purchased 1 item paid with paypal.
Must have decided he needed 3 more, purchased and paid with paypal.
I would like to save him money by combining the 2 purchases into one FRE.
If I refund patially through paypal for shipping will I get a defect?
If so I will not partially refund and send him 2 separate packages
Thank you for any and all answers.
I have noticed that buyers will say anything to avoid paying the return cost. I recently sold an item, in used condition. The buyer stated things that were wrong with it, but these etails were clearly vissable in the photos I listed. One wasn't even true. So, this buyer either didn't even bother looking at any of the photos, or just wants an excuse to not spend money.
All they have to do is say it wasn't as described; it doesn't matter if it was or not. I called ebay about this, pointed out the clear and obvious faults listed (which were minor, in any case), and they would do nothing about it. The woman said something about 'hassle free'. Well, it also says 'buyer pays'.
So, even though the listed may have 'buyer pays return shipping', they really don't have to. It is very mis-leading. The only way to get rid of it that I can see, is not to offer returns- but that doesn't really matter either; all the buyer has to do is say it wasn't as described. This becomes a matter of opinion; I could list all 12 possible photos, describe everything, and any fault can still be found if one is creative.
As I sell more and more, I began to notice how people can work the system to their advantage. Ebay can't side with both buyer and seller, so they tend to go with the one that makes them the most profit, usually the buyer. They wan't the buyer coming back.
Does anyone have any advice about how to avoid this issue?
Hello sellers, I am new to selling on Ebay and very much want to everything right. Like many people on here, I get my pre owned clothing from thrift stores, yard sales, flea markets, etc. As such, I have no way of verifying if designer labels are authentic or not. I usually pick up non high-end items like Eddie Bauer and Anne Taylor and such, but I recently read something that really scared me. It said that if a buyer reports an item as fake, the seller gets banned from Ebay whether the item is fake or not. This seems completely unreasonable because if a seller is acting in good faith, and goes to the thrift store and picks up a fake item totally unknowingly, the seller is really getting victimized. That being said, I would like to protect myself from any problems by putting a disclaimer on my used clothing, something to the effect of: "I got this shirt at a thrift shop and as such, have no way to verify if it is actually an Anne Taylor. The label says Anne Taylor. Please be aware that this item is pre-owned and therefore there is no way to verify the origin." Can someone advise me if this is ok to do and if it will protect me from any problems should I run into any issues? I'm staying away from all high end labels because I am too scared of unknowingly buying fakes. However, from what I am reading, even the non-high end items sometimes get faked. Please help. I want to be successful and would like to let my buyers know, hey, this is from a thrift store and I am just as knowledgeable as you are. Anyway, thanks in advance for your help!
Had a buyer cancellation this morning. (my first)
I approved the cancel, the buyer was refunded. However, the item still appears in my sold list awaiting payment. Is it safe to just delete this item from the list? I've already re-listed.
Thanks in advance for any answers
but the red message saying "Payment Total Requested" won't go away. The red banner makes me feel like I should do something or not?
On a recent transaction through eBay, I sold a 0 feedback buyer an airsoft (toy) gun.
The buyer's account initiated the transaction under the control of a minor using the account with the consent of the owner, but not the supervision.
When i talked to the buyer, the account owner completed the payment and I mailed the item promptly.
Upon recieving the item, the buyer claimed that it didnt work. On many ocasions after the call, i attempted to solve the problem with minimal information.
After the eBay return time ran out, the buyer still insisted that the gun i sent them was broken so they went to return it thru paypal.
They won the case obviously because they "claimed" that i sent a broken item.
Upon recieving the item, the problem was a screw on the handle (where the motor is stored) was loose. Within five seconds i had the gun fully operational.
Now, the buyer had inflicted some obvious cosmetic wear on the gun and much of the paint is damaged and the metal body has minor scratches. I have a negative paypal balance because of the unnecesary and unreasonable return, and a buyer-damaged item. Also, i have my first negative feedback, first in 40, saying that i sent a broken gun and refused to ship.
What im asking for is if i can:
-Remove the negartive feedback
-Respond to it denying the statement
-Force the buyer to pay me back and for me to send the item finally
-Resolve my paypal balance
I'm a new seller and i was brand new in Ebay back in 2012 as well, but someone bought a 35 Dollar purse from me, the person is out of the UK and has 0 feedback and been in Ebay since today January 26 2015 when the purchase was made.
I was getting ready to print the shipping label and became aware of the address and the buyer. Should i be concerned?
I did not have a restrictions of any kind in the item.
The item it's already paid as well.
I know that if i don't want to Ship internationally i can put it there and also restric buyers i guess but i just havent run into this situation and i know it's only $35 but i would rather not lose it,
Thank you in Advance for your responses!
I want to give other or another feedback, because the my first one was wrong!
I've seen other threads but they don't have much information. I sold an item and it is coming back to be due to insuficcient address. The buyer has not responded to messages, starting a week ago when I saw the problem. If I can't get the buyer to answer, what happens?
If I can't get the buyer to answer, he wont cancel the sale, meaning I'm stuck with the fee's, so I dont' want to just refund it, but I'm not going to reship for free. Will eBay void the sale?
What if I just do nothing further and wait for him to get in touch with me? I've sent three messages over a week+
-to where I got an item that did not work. I messaged the seller first to try and work something out before setting up a case. They told me instantly that it was probably a fuse in the item and to send it back, and that they would pay for return shipping. Of course, since there was no way to tell how much return shipping would be, I had originally paid 8.00 to first receive the item, I told the seller that I would get a recepit from the post office and send it to them along with the tracking number. I did. To send the item back, with the return shipping number the seller gave me, was 12.65. After I told them that the item was sent, and sent them pictures of the recepit, it was THEN that the seller told me that they were ONLY going to pay HALF of the return shipping and, in terms of a refund, was NOT going to pay me back the original 8.00 in shipping that was apart of the items original listing. I was pretty much out of options at this point so I went ahead and agreed to recieve half of the return shipping on the tiem. After all some money back is better than none. But at that point, and past, the seller then started to dodge my questions about when they were going to send my payment. At one point I even told them that I was going to leave town for a day, and I did, and that I would be awaited their message on when they were going to send my payment back. There was NOTHING. Then the day the seller got his item he messaged me saying that the item returned him and worked PERFECTLY?! This coming from a guy who told me it was probably a fuse that was blown after sending him pictures of the item not working; this coming from a guy who told me in my CASE against him that he had been working on stuff like this since the 80's. But it was working perfectly? Come on! I send him pictures of the item doing exactly as a I had described hooked up propperly. You could see the wires hooked up on the picture I had sent him and you could see the wires hooked up on my modem(which I did not originally send him because he didn't ask for it). I even called the items, which was a router, customer support and they said that if the lights did not work that it was defective and to send it back to the seller. I got the case number from that call in case I needed it. The seller then agreed to send the item back since it was working and that they would give me some sort of credit for the original cost. At this point I opened a case against them. It was HERE that the seller just completly uped and refused to send me back a refuned and the cost for the item entirely. After a few more days Ebay leaned in my favor on the case. BUT, I NEVER recieved a refund for the return shipping! NOT even HALF of it(which I would've been satisified with)! I called Ebay about it and after a bit the told me that since it was apart of the ORIGINAL agreement between me and the seller that they'd go ahead and make me eligible for a refund but that it may take a few days and to wait that they were going to get back with me. That was on the 22nd, it was also the same day that Ebay leaned in my favor and closed the case. Today is the 28th, and having not heard back from Ebay I called them again. They then told me, at first, that there was no account of my previous phone call so the person I spoke to patched me over to the appeals department. The lady there told me she was aware of my previous phone call and that the person I spoke to before probably had told me that they couldn't get back the refund, but that they did, and she had it on her computer, message the seller in my favor to try and get the refund back from them. Now that ALONE was nice enough of the person who I spoke to the first time. Here we have Ebay messaging the seller on my behalf trying to get back my refund. But, naturally, I expected for Ebay to have some good news for me today when I called. She only told me that since the transaction for return shipping was outside of Ebay(?) that I was not eligible for the money since Ebay had already paid the original item cost and return shipping. They told me there was nothing more they could do and to simply contact the seller again and try to get them to work with me. I just doubt that's going to do much good. If the seller was going to at least do the courtesy of paying me you'd figure I would've had, at least, that back before they got their item. But, for the good measure of things I'm went ahead and messaged them(I'm now awaiting a reply, as I figure I will be for a very long time). I just do not understand why Ebay cannot go ahead and refund me my return shipping too. Yes, I went to the post office and wrote down the return item number and paid for return shipping. But this was ONLY because the seller had told me at first they were going to pay me back. Imagine my astonishment to find out that after I had sent it the seller would refuse to then pay me in full and tell me they were only going to pay half, and then my astonishment again to find out that I would not be recieving the item's return shipping fund at all. I spent 33.64 on this item in total and only received back 20.99. It's nice knowing that the 12.65 I had paid was pretty much thrown out of the window while driving on a highway, never to be seen again. I don't think it's fair at all. The seller has their item back, and it's something that I went out of my way to insure. And now all that I am getting from Ebay is: "There's nothing we can do. Try to message the seller back but anything they tell you they have the right to?" First of all, how was this OUTSIDE of Ebay? Second of all, this whole THING, was mentioned in the case. The seller and I pretty much just messaged each other back and forth. Me wanting my refund and them denying me. But it was mentioned there about the return shipping. It was mentioned there that I had a recepit. It was mentioned there of the full items total and, even, for the sake of losing money completely, what the seller had said about at least paying half. But now to be faced with this and to have just completely threw away 12.65? I am both shocked and appalled. It has ripped me out of my comfort zone with Ebay. For the future am I just not suppose to send he sellers items back even when they tell me they're going to refund me? If the tell me they're going to pay me back for the return shipping, instead of just sending the item to them, should I instead just instantly open a case up against them? I thought that was the whole purpose of trying to work things out with the seller before setting up a case. I just do not understand why Ebay is telling me they can't refund me, and why seller isn't held accountable. Everything Ebay needed to know was in our case summary and replies. But this? Yes, I went ahead and sent the item back with good faith that they seller was going to do what the told me. How was I suppose to know that they'd wait until it was sent to change the agreement? And Ebay really does want me to set up a case first before sending the item back? That's the WHOLE POINT of working things out before setting up a case. I didn't know! I wasn't at fault and I should've have to be the one without when the seller has obviously fixed the damaged router and has probably already resold it. I just do not understand. This agreement was not OUTSIDE of Ebay. This was in Ebay's INBOX. It was then brought to the case. So beware fellow Ebayers. Excellent Feedback on a seller is not everything. The seller, had only one negative feedback. Ebay told me there was nothing they could do at this point. The seller got his item back, lost nothing what so ever, and the buyer, me, is the one doing without. This would be another issue entirely if my source of INCOME was not low. But I can not afford to just throw money away into a pit of nothingness. Not 6 dollars and not 12. This is just unfair. I am VERY, VERY, THANKFUL that Ebay closed the original case in my favor but I HATE how they did not even address the issue of return shipping before closing it, and I hate now, just because THEY'RE they one that paid me back my refund and not the seller, how I am not ENTITLED to a refund WHATSOEVER on return shipping! Why? JUST because Ebay paid some of the original cost of the item? Well what about the rest? Is that how it is now? The doors are just closed for good, and locked, once "A" payment is recieved? Even if not in the full amount? I am just appaled by this all. In the following picture you can see the damaged router with the Wifi light not working, modem, and internet connection. . This is just an awful situation. The seller GOT his item back so that should INSTANTLY entitle me for a refund on the return shipping.
