I'm having trouble with a listing that I would like to ship to US and Japan only. When I check shipping it only gives a US option. Can someone let me know what I am doing wrong? TIA
Here's the listing number: 151896152432
Screen shot of list it yourself page. I tried to click on Japan in the "Require buyers to contact you" section but it won't stay clicked after I revise. I guess I need to click somewhere else but I don't know where. This is the only listing I want to open to Japan.
I couldnt find anything on google.
Cannot even figure what it says.
Underneath written something like well569.1.04.1
Just want to see if anyone else gets whats actually happening her ein this photo....
I don't know if anyone else has seen this. So, I was browsing a competitor's store to see if they are making sales (trying to see if it's the item or ebay)...well it's ebay. They had this advertisment in the item search results. It appeared after typing the keyword "pokemon". So, I went to see if it was on mine as well, and it is!
This is outrageous! No wonder sales are slow. When you click "shop now" it takes you to other sellers' items...
This ceramic piece is about 6" tall and has a Fred Rogers sticker on the bottom. The bottom is very slightly recessed. It has a small hole at the top for hanging. Any idea what it is?

Good morning everyone
Good morning everyone.
Im at a loss for key words here, other than pink satin glass.
it seems to be ARt Deco era, but not really Art Deco style. It looks like its Czech, but its not signed anywhere. I do think its unusual to find a matching set? Id appreciate any ideas!
Looking for any info on this unsigned necklace. TYIA
Have two of these sterling bracelets - one in pinks, one blues. Anyone recognize the mark?
Old screwbacks, thought they were reverse carved, but they are not. Is "encased" the right term? Also not sure if they are six point stars or maybe pinwheels. Thanks for help!
I am do not know enough about different pottery pieces but thought this was interesting. The has a smooth, almost buttery texture. Small areas of shiny glaze over the smooth satin finish. Rich forest green. Measures 5 5/8". No marks. Thanks for any help!
My first thought was an eyeglass holder but I can't figure out what the chain would hook to?
While you're here, could the bottom left pin actually be a victory pin? Back makes me think older. TIA!!!
Have an entire monogramed china set but I can not figure out the Old English letter that is on them. Any help?
I have a 13-piece amber colored ceramic manger set. There are the three wise men, donkey, cow, sheep, baby Jesus, Joseph, Mary, cow, boy with sheep, shepphard. These have a very high shiney gloss to them and are a bronze, amber color. They have a nice
weight to them. Any information would be very appreciated.
Thank you so much!
Can anyone help idenhtify this mark on a demitasse cup, saucer? It's an arm with a hand clasping a broad sword. I can't read the writing (almost certainly NOT Meissen). The date seems to be 1883. Any information greatly appreciated.
I have a plush Boyds Bears that my mother purchased from QVC. I have not been able to identify it - can anyone help identify this white bear with a blue jumper? Thanks so much in advance for any help! Mary
Are all 3 of these boxes French?
I'm pretty sure the enamel box dates to the 18th C., but I have no idea about the mark (looks like a wasp or mosquito ??). Does anyone recognize it?
The other 2 are porcelain. One with brass mounts and the other with a silver mount...both unmarked. Are these 19th C.(?) and any thoughts on the possible makers?
Smallest box approx: 2-3/8 in.
Hello! I have this necklace and matching earrings that have me stumped. The only markings on them are what looks like a Crown & maybe upside down Tiara. It was hard for me to photo, do you know who this maker is? Also, what would you call this color of brown stone? Thanks!
Hi There, I have recently found this beautiful neo-classical style glazed porcelain vase. It looks antique to me (though I might be wrong), and certainly was made with a lot of style and skill. The markings don't give away too much '1533a' and I have so far failed to find anything similar in my research (after hours of looking).
It was purchased at a local estate auction (in Melbourne).
The first thing I thought was Wedgwood, and it actually looks a bit like the famed Portland Vase (though with square rather than rounded handles). It is very light for it's size (237g), and Height: 12cm, Diameter: 11cm.
It looks to have a rough finish that's typical of older pieces, and the style looks to me like the late 18th-19th century neo-classical which was popular in England at the time. However, I'm no expert on china and would appreciate any help.
Hi glassies, I found these at the free shop at the local transfer station along with a Panelled Flower goblet and a Bleeding Hearts goblet. I thought maybe these are also older?
I got a total of seven, the last photo with the measurements shows two of them. The smaller one is pretty much the same as the others. The larger one is slightly larger but the foot is quite a bit larger. Could this be a spooner?
I looked through Metz, Ruth Webb Lee, McCain and Miles/Miller, the closest thing I found was Almond Thumbprint, but it just didn't look quite right. Does it look familiar to anyone?
Thanks so much for any help
I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction on this glass. It was mold blown (the flowers are indented on the inside) into a 4-part mold. The flowers look like they may be based on dahlias to me.
I got this at the free shop at our transfer station. I don't know why I took it, it just looked older to me. The top is ground smooth.
Thanks for any help
These pendants appear quite old...
18th/19th C. Mughal or Persian?
The center stone on the first piece I *think* is an opal(?), not sure what the others are. The larger of the two is jade.
I also have a silver and amber necklace and earring set I believe is Mughal or Persian as well. Well post images a bit later.
I bought these earrings because they are really pretty, but they are also marked, just no idea by who. Any ideas? TIA
Mark shown both ways because I'm not sure which way it is suppose to be viewed.
These are pierced, so I'm figuring they are fairly new.
Hello.Greetings from PA I recently acquired a lot of doll clothes with some tagged VOGUE. The pics below are of untagged (except for the brown outfit with pants - that is tagge) The other sets, I am not familiar with. Do these look like VOGUE clothes and if so any info you may have would be greatly appreciated. THank you
Yesterday I bought an item, car stereo with a very low price (25€). But right after my payment, I have recieved an email from ebay saying that, ebay has removed the listing. Today while I was checking the item, I found out that the seller has deactivated his account. Also, the email address that he provided is wrong.
Now I can see clearly that this is a fraud case. What shall I do now?'
Item No. 181942404990
Hello! I found these at a friend's store today; he got them in a storage auction he won. - Are these real drums or just decorative? The nails on them are old.
If real what are they called so I can find out more about them?
I appreciate any help
I was hoping to get a hand with this Native American? small rug.
It measures 36" long x 16 1/4" wide.
This is not my primary area, so any info would help greatly, such as:
NA or not?
style, with the size what was it used for.
I don't know the age ~ Doesn't seem to be antique.
Hi there - Found this rug with some 1930s clothing...
from my research it looks like a Two Grey Hills Navajo rug? Does anyone have any information on how to date and price such a thing?
Can anybody ID this mark ? I just got a set of sterling silver ware and can't find this on the web!
Won an item from a seller who then upped the shipping $22 dollars. Received this email from the seller.
Thanks for your purchase on the above item.
When I listed the player I listed the shipping cost that most put on their players
Unfortunately this one weighs 14 lbs so would be $35.00 to ship.
Please let me know if you would still like it at I will invoice you for the additional $22.00 it would be to ship.
So sorry for the mistake.
Or let me know if you would prefer a refund, which I would completely understand.
Thanks and regards, Donna
Ebay makes a big deal that these are binding contracts especially if you are a buyer, but that a seller can just low ball shipping to be competitive, then up it after the auction is over is definitely fraudulent.
Final email was a classic
|New message from: sdpopko (1,732)|
This is the first time I have ever had a seller just change the shipping price like that and say take it or leave it. Thing is I cancelled 3 other auctions I was watching at after winning this one so those sellers lost out due to this fraud. Luckily I found another item and won it paying only a dollar more.

I have a set of these 7 necklaces.. are they pendants? just plain fashion necklaces? any help is appreciated
I found this wierd necklace, it has polmer clay beads, leather chain, and what looks to me like an alien pendant and 2 lizards on the sides, the pendants/lizards are heavy probably brass. Has anyone seen anything like this, is there a theme of lizards and aliens out there somewhere that is popular??? I am assuming this is just some random artisan piece? There are no markings on the brass.
I am NOT referring to the number available/number sold in individual listings. This is on the search results page. I notce that some listings have a big red Number Sold
I called eBay about this and two people had no idea how that number appears and said they would get back to me. That was a week ago. Anyone actually know what I need to do to make that show up on my listings? All of my listings are multi-quantity. All are good til cancelled. Like I said, even eBay staff can't tell me why it appears on some listings and not others.
i cant find this marking and signature DERBY? I included a pic of the figure as sometimes the colors help any Help will be appreciated.
I thought there was a Christmas board on ebay but maybe no longer?
Maybe someone here is familiar with these?
This is heavy glass with a brass cap.
Does anyone know the maker? age?
The pics came out orangey but it's more red.
Here's a coin that just might fit into David G's collection of esoteric/odd coins...current bid only $1.49 with free shipping.

Sorry, David, eBay does not let me reveal the seller name or item number.
I was thinking of picking up this chess set listed on my local Craigslist. Does anyone have any idea what age or area it's from?
DOES ANYONE RECOGNIZE THE SYMBOL OR SEAL ON THE BOTTOM OF THIS ART GLAS BOTTLE?
IS IT A COMPANY OR A ARTIST?
Is this a 19th(?) C. American(?) paperweight?
Looks to be either chromolithography or reversed-painted under the glass....hard to tell.
Looking for some kind of ID on this tiny (under 5" across) tidbit server. No maker's mark; opaque yellow glass with clear glass handle. I've seen similar pieces (not identical) described as "Depression" and "stretch glass", but not sure if they are accurate. Thanks in advance for any help! PS - sorry about image clarity; camera settings must be goofy. -kyal
Orioles of some kind?
Good morning everyone.
Buyer wants me to ship a 200 dollar phone to a locker service. That company will then ship the item to them in the Dominican Republic.
Buyer has made arrangements with the second shipping company. All I have to do is ship it to them.
I am afraid if the item is damaged when shipped by the second company, I will end up being responsible.
Item is paid and I said yes to his request, but now I have doubts. What should I do?
...of course they didn't pay and I was refunded the FVF.
I now am over my 6k sales limit and cannot relist the PS4, and in addition, my account has basically been frozen for the entirety of the christmas season.
Is there anything I can do?
Scammers are so prevalent here that all the offers I have currently recieved are fraudulent (asking me to text them my Paypal for payment lol). It's also the reason why I do not do auction anymore.
The item is worth as much as my current bank statement, so I need a guareentee that I will not be scammed by some scammer who says the box is empty or whatnot. Thus, I am willing to take great precautions to minimize that risk. And yes, this actually does happen quite often, especially for expensive items.
Granted, it is adult signature and I will be recording myself weighing and putting the item in the box, as well as recording the serial number on the box to ensure that it's valid. This will be done at the post office immediately before handing it to the post office. I may even try to get a few signatures lol. I wish I can actually force the buyer to open the package, register the serial, and turn on the laptop before signing for the package. :/ Even then, PP is dumb egnough to favor the buyer...
However, the problem is that my ratings are low, so I'm not viewed as a "trusted seller" either.. I can understand why people would be skeptical of buying from me. The whole system is a failure in my opinion, because there is no real way to distinguish a fraudulent claim from a legitament one.
Furthermore, PP and ebay favors higher reputation, so it is even easier for the "trusted" guy to scam me. By the sole merit of reputation, Paypal will favor them in a dispute. What should I do? Should I sell this item locally?
Any advice on carriar options? I am currently using USPS, but I will change it to whatever carriar favors the seller in the case of an claim.
This is probably the third time I've run into this now, and it's starting to get on my nerves. The first time was a seller in Singapore who charged the international flat rate for a record (as in an old 78) which was about $4.50, then turned around and said he needed $30 after the sale which I refused. His excuse was Ebay had him "listed wrong" even though he had dozens of items for sale, and it was all my fault as I was supposed to wait for an invoice. (????)
Now it's a US seller who had a radio (old tube type) for sale, which had a calculated price of $13.20 That seemed really good, but not unrealistic. First thing the seller asks is am I going to pick it up (from 800 miles away) and then wonders how I was able to get a shipping cost, and finally said he/she would query shipping companies. This thing is not that big or heavy.
If I'm able to close a sale and calculate the shipping, can a seller really decide later it needs to be more--as in they knew it would be a lot more than a default amount, and should never have listed it that way? Literally all this person had said in the auction was "buyer responsible for shipping."
Second, if I'm not prompted to ask for a total and can still checkout, can a seller still get away with insisting I should have asked for an invoice/total?
And lastly, is there anywhere in Ebay's policies that tells someone they can't have the auction set one shipping price and then decide later it's another higher price?
It's not like a seller lists a price in good faith and then goes to the post office and finds out it can't be shipped by them and has to go by a truck, this seems to be a really blatant cheap shipping price per Ebay's system and then, "well, despite whatever Ebay suad, the actual cost is going to be more, you should have realized that." And it's also not "Well I thought it would be $3.00 and it's $4.50," the Singapore seller wanted several times what the original shipping cost would be, and this person seems likely to do the same.
And even if it does comes down to the seller won't budge, how can it be handled via Ebay that suddenly that steal at $100 is now going to be $150? I don't like the idea of paying one price via Ebay and then more via seaprate Paypal invoice.
I'm looking to buy a certain item which the seller offers "No returns or exchanges" for, but it is covered with the eBay Money Back Guarantee.
Now, if I buy the item and it turns out to be faulty, and since the seller doesn't accept returns, does it mean I should contact eBay first?
The problem is that ebay says in case of problems we should contact the seller first, but he/she isn't accepting returns in the first place, so how should I approach this situation?
I'm really interested in buying the item but the "no return" thing is making me nervous.
So, in the past few months I've found a couple of people using my photos as their own main photo, when listing the same items.
Today I found one by chance, because I did an eBay search of the brand Corey Lynn Calter, I happened to run across someone else's listing of a top that I also sold recently, but the picture is mine. I mean, I take my pics on a hanging bust in my dining room-I know my pictures, you know?? I clicked on it and double checked, and yes they are mine.
Anyway, my listing is over, but it does annoy me. What are your thoughts on this? Would you say something? Or should I just move on?
No I don't have any kind of watermark. No my pics are not anything super fancy-or special, but I do take a lot of time taking them.
Please no negativity, just curious about other seller's thoughts! Thank you!
I have a question now for my fellow sellers. I and my neighbor order quite a few things from A and I hate the thought of throwing out those boxes.
I have seen quite a few threads by buyers miffed that they bought something on eBay but it was shipped from Amazon. So worried that a buyer might think I was drop shipping, (not that there's anything wrong with that) I have been hesitant to recycle the Amazon boxes for my sales. Most of mine go in Priority boxes but for the ones that don't fit in the FRB, I would like to reuse the ones from A. They're really nice sturdy boxes.
Anybody had any negative reaction from a buyer for doing that?
hi,, i have an easy 14 day hassle free return.. but i had a buyer try and return something on the 30th day(raised a red flag,like she was trying to game the system,thinking it was 30 day return policy)...
in her return request,, she clearly states she changed her mind,, and that the seller was great,, .. i called ebay and they said i can deny the return, and won't be penalized because it's outside my return period..
ok,, so i know to be wary of her trying to open a paypal claim,, but i beleive because she didn't say it was not as described, and clearly was happy with my communication and service.. paypal should deny her claim,,if she tries to open one...
anything else i'm missing??
i don't know why she waited til the 30th day,, she communicated with me soon after the sale and asked for a partial refund.. because she's not sure she likes it.. i told her i would give her a 10 dollar refund, or she can return it under my return policy..
then i heard nothing until today,,which is the 30 th day after she purchased,, 24th day after she received it...
thanks in advance,, im trying to preemtively cross my t's and dot my i.. so to speak..
Hello. I just received payment from a buyer in the form of an e-check, though it was through paypal. I didn't even know this was a method of paying so I am thrown a little for a loop. It says the check will take 5-6 days to clear.
The question I have is do you always wait for it to clear to send or do you send presuming it's a safe bet that it will clear? The buyer has had the account since 2011 and has over 1600 feedback.
I would like to drop them off at the PO tomorrow morning but not if it's considered too risky,
I just received Negative Feedback from a bidder that won an item 24 hours ago and did not pay! This person contacted me 24 hours after they bid on the item within the last few seconds (outbid other bidders) and said they could not afford to pay for the item! I simply replied that since they won the item within the last few seconds by outbidding other potential bidders, I expected them to pay! The buyer responded and said they would leave negative feedback because I would not let them "NOT PAY" for the item. I already sent EBAY a message concerning this issue and do not expect anything to be done! EBAY customer service is not SELLER friendly. An unpaid item case will open up tomorrow (48 hours) and I will see if this person will pay. If not, they will receive an unpaid item strike.
One more note concerning the bidder. They sell a lot of items on EBAY and have plenty of feedback (good and bad), so they can afford to pay for the item.
Is there anything I can do about the negative feedback since it came 24 hours after the person won the item and did not pay?
Thanks for suggestions and comments
I have sent items to a different address before but it won't let me do it this time. I get a message saying invalid adress and it won't let me go ahead and do it. Did something change? Is there a way around this. I know it will void seller protection but it is a low cost item and I would like to not upset the buyer who claims this has not been an issue for them before. Last time I had the buyer temporarily change the address on PP and it went fine. I am worried this buyer won't do that and then be upset with me. How should I handle this ain a way to not get bad FB. should I cancel for address issue? This would make the buyer angry as they have done this several times I am told with no problems.
Seems there is very little action this morning (its 11am as I write this on the West Coast), but I am optimistic. It is higher than it has it has been for a few months, getting some views and a few shoppers.
Hoping to clear out some old inventory and Christmas'y toys and stuff.
I can say I was finally able to pick up some stuff I wanted to purchase without too much competition.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.
Does anyone know what this is? It appears to be some type of jewelry, but the chains aren't long enough to go around a wrist. It opens and closes with a hinge. Is it for hair?
I have a comforter set listed and i left the shipping as how ebay had automatically losted it but someone has messaged and asked me how much shipping is, does anyone know the best way to ship something like this????
can i accept the second buyers offer before i hear from the first offer -counteroffer??
Is this against eBay rules?
I bought an item and paid for it through PayPal and would have been a great deal. I waited for it's arrival but got a message from the seller saying that he couldn't find the item in his inventory. He sent my money back to me immediately. I did a search on the items listing history just by chance. I found that he had sold the item for $9.00 more to somebody else. I also found that he started the listing and ended the listing 37 times within a two month period and sometimes several times in the same day. When I accused him of selling the item from underneath me he said that he must have sold the item and then re-listed it by mistake. He called it an honest mistake. Before we were able to resolve the issue I left a not so good feedback because I felt that I got ripped off even though I did get my money back. Maybe I should feel fortunate for that and comply with his wishes. What do you guys think?
