Selling question

Is this normal?

I posted this on the Selling Board and then discovered this board.


I've had this purse for over 20 years. Purchased it at a consignment store under the impression that it was a real Coach. Now, I'm not sure. The straps are sewn onto the sides. The flap has a magnetic snap on it. The Creed is impressed onto the inside (not a seperate patch) and reads, "Coach Leatherware. This is a Coach bag, U.S. made out of a completely natural gloved tanned cowhide. The scars, scratches, veins and wrinkles are natural markings characteristic of full grain leather. Made in the United States. No. 0711-316.

Measuremens are 7-3/8" length, height (not including straps) 6-1/2" and width 2-3/4."

Would like to sell it since I haven't used it in 10 years but cannot list it if it not real. Thanks for any help on this.

Vintage Coach Purse - Real or Fake?


I have what I believe to be an inscribed Marc Chagall watercolor.  I looked at it closely and it looks llike paint, no dots.  It has an inscription in French.  May I please have your opinions on this piece.

Thank you for your time and help!

ebay hacked again?



There is a story behind this choice....

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

I bought these today at an estate sale - it was run by a business friend who was a antique dealer & who'd bought pieces from me I found in storage auctions. He told me he'd had these at least 20 years & always thought they were federal style eagle lamps until a friend told him that the little rise/hump on the top/back of the bird's heads was actually birds that were symbols of the nazi germany era.


Could this be true? They weren't expensive; $25 for the pair, but the plug appears like it could be from that time & the marble base isn't a cheap base, so I just want to be sure of what I have.


I appreciate any help.

Good morning everyone.



New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

They are not marked so I didn't know if they are legit (maybe a gift with purchase sort of thing) or straight out fake.  In the meantime I saw the green at the bottom of one earring in the photo, poked at it and accidentally removed a rhinestone.  But it will be cleaned and repaired.

I tried every way to take a picture of this mark, maybe you can tell me who made this. I think it reads sterling silver but the makers mark I cannot read. 2 1/4". 100_6432.JPG100B6460.JPG100_6471.JPG100_6431.JPG

I posted this in the tech help category too but curious if anyone else is having this issue...


I listed some items this afternoon. I have many items still at zero views not just from today but throughout the month. I decided to pick an item I put up this afternoon and search ebay for it. I first used the account I listed it from and using IE browser. I could not locate it. I searched the brand of the clothing and new as the only specifics and then sorted by price. The spot mine should be in is not showing my item. I then used another ebay account and searched using Google Chrome browser the same exact way. This time I was able to locate my shirt exactly where it should be. What is going on? Why is my item not viewable from both accounts? Is it a browser thing? an account thing? This seems so wrong. Perhaps this could explain why sales are so horrible lately. Anyone else having the same issue? You may want to check some items for yourself. Heres a side by side of what I am talking about.

I posted this brooch and earring set on the weekend finds, but it has not been looked at that I can tell.

Sorry if redundant! 

This set is one of my finds on Sat. Never seen this set before and it looked so pretty I tested it for gold and diamonds, laugh if you want to - ha! Have no idea where to look as it is unmarked. Anyone familiar with the maker? I do appreciate the help that is found on this board!!092.JPG090.JPG093.JPG

Best I can think of is "threaded". I tried searching terms like that but didn't find anything like this. The bail and the chain is making me feel like it may be older but any insight on that as well is much appreciated.

I was hoping that I could get more info on these beads.  Clasp looks mid 20th century, probably, but could be a bit earlier.  The facets on the beads are irregular, reminding me of czech beads.  The necklace is almost 7 feet in length (yes 7 feet! I measured it agains myself, at 5'3"). Sorry if the pics arent veyr good. I had to borrow a camera I wasnt too familiar with Smiley Sad.


Edges of the facets are sharp, not rounded like they may appear in the pics

Can someone tell me what I have? I first thought it may be a blanket because it was with a pile of quilts; but it's too big (8' x 5' 3"), too heavy & too rough feeling (almost like burlap!), so I'm guessing it's a rug or carpet.


Does anyone know what it is/where it's from? It has no name anywhere, but does have a label? with a number on it that has been attached to it with a thin plastic zip tie type thing.


PS - Is this a rug or a carpet? What is the difference?

Does anyone recognize the mark on this bracelet? It has a crown on top of two initials - maybe RD or LT or LD, with an open top wreath beneath the initials. I looked on Illusion Jewels, and around the Internet, but couldn't find it. 


It has a magnetic clasp, with the mark on the bottom part of the clasp that fits into the other, open part. I think it might be sterling, but I'm waiting for my new acid testing kit to arrive in the mail.


Also, are these agate stones? Thank you for any help.

I'm having a problem and need help. I opened a case requesting a refund for a defective item. But eBay closed my case and sided with the seller and says that I can file an appeal. But I can't find the page where I can do. The first picture shows that eBay Customer Support has made a final decision not to issue a refund and there's a link for 'send us an appeal'. But if I click on it, the hyperlink page shows 'Buyer appeals' page, but I can't a form to file an appeal in or an address to where I can send a text and pictures.


Anybody knows where the page is?

Learns the Hard Way

I posted this on the vintage clothing board but have a split between antique and 80s. I don't see 80s with the various componets, but can't claim to never be wrong. The lace is definitely old~soft cotton, not the stiff, hard, modern lace. The lining fabric seems old, and the secondary fabric at the interior button hole and button edge seems old ( the blue with the little white flower). Does anyone have opinions based on the fabrics? And/or the construction? Thank you! More pictures in the next post.

We're sorry there was a problem with this transaction. After reviewing the case, we made a final decision in the buyer's favor.

This case has been decided in the buyer's favor.

The buyer has been asked to return the item to you. Once tracking shows the item has been delivered to you, the buyer will be issued a full refund. Also, if the buyer uses an eBay provided shipping label to return the item, you will be required to pay for such shipping and will see this charge on your invoice in accordance with our policies. These charges vary.
Seriously Ebay... now I must possibly pay return charges, the buyer won the case like I did something wrong??? FFFFFF   UUUUU CCCCC KKKKK YOU EBAY.... I am so sick and tired of you stu  pid A$$holes!! Its cool... more time into my Amazon store... my stuff sells better there anyways...idiots!!

Hi - 
I'm seeking a refund from a seller who sent me some pottery inadequately packaged (just a padded envelope) and it broke in transit.  

The seller didn't respond so I opened a case and attached photos.

Ebay said I should hear by 3rd of July or could ask them to step in and help.


I'm trying ot ask them to step in and help, but even through Im logged in, when I click the button, i just get a notice saying I'm not eligible to make that request.


Please help - I just need someone on the ebay side to take the case forward and make a decision about a refund since the seller isn't responding.  I'm pretty sure I'm not doing anything wrong.

Hi! I took these pictures almost 3 weeks ago, being they looked so unusual.


The 3 blue "stripes", for want of a better word, went completely across the sky

from east to west and settled over the 3 clouds over the horizon. The smallest

cloud resembles one of those mushroom clouds like from the old newsreels of the

atomic bomb.


There were also these huge clouds overhead that had a kind of dirty look to them,

like maybe there was dust or something in them.


Thanks for any insight on this!

Listings not showing issue

These earrings are unusual. Not sure if they are the prettiest things but definitely unusual construction and the back is rough. I do see a mark, it looks like T 90 or T 09? 06? 60? Maybe what looks like a T to me is just part of the "roughness" of the back of these. Unfortunately trying to search numbers for markings is not leading me anywhere.


Any clues?

Good morning. Smiley Happy 

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

Is it safe to call this Native American when it is only signed 'Coin silver" ... also it is possible to attribute this to a certain tribe if it is in fact NA based on design motifs.


It has some red residue that almost looks like paint?  I could clean it off but not if it is intentional, was there ever a precedent of silver items being painted or enameled in this tradition of silversmithing? This was found with a bunch of really old jewelry, mostly broken, at an estate sale a few weeks ago so for all I know the previous owner painted it herself/himself.



Thanks for any help.

I can't begin to explain how frustrated I am by Ebay's bid retraction policies. 


So a bidder comes in, bids up an item until he is the highest bidder, then retracts that winning bid leaving the current high bid about $11 higher than when he started. If a bidder bids until he/she is the winner, then retracts the winning bid, ALL their previous bids should be retracted as well (assuming they were the only live bidder in action).

THIS bidder has had 13,718 bid retractions in the last 6 months!!!! Come on!!! Are you kidding me! If ever there was a case for fraud in action, this is it!

Paid Shill Bidder?

Response I got from craiglist member:



Hi again, the car is stored with all the paperwork at eBay warehouse, in St Louis MO headquarters in container,sealed and ready for delivery.Like i told you Me and my husband travel a lot with our business and I prepared the sale with eBay. The transaction will be made thru eBay, all you have to pay for my car is $1500(delivery is already prepared and paid by me).You will have 10 days for inspection.During all this time eBay will keep safe the money into a trust account.So, this is not a blind transaction,you can see the car before decide to buy it.If you are satisfied with the car and decide to keep it you inform eBay about this and they will release the money to me.If the car is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the car will be my concern. But I don't think that this will be necessary because the car is like in the pictures and how I described it.You will receive the car with all the necessary papers notarized to pass at your name (clear title, bill of sale, user’s manual, insurance etc).
If you want to start the transaction with eBay just reply me with your full name,full delivery address and your phone number and I will get everything started as soon as possible(with no further obligation or fees),then eBay will contact you with further instructions.


Thank you

Tracking numbers for items I did not receive state delivered. Post office says I did not get insurance so they are not liable. Each item was under $20. Seller did not offer insurance but a fixed postal rate through USPS with tracking number. Who is responsible? Should I leave nutural FB since sellers are not going to do anything?

Hi Everyone,


Hope you had a nice 4th of July weekend.Smiley Happy


I have noticed for the past few weeks a bidder that is coming along and bidding up some items with this one seller. I have been watching this for about 3 weeks. This bidder never wins and I tried to see if any feedback is left from this bidder to the seller and I cannot find it? The bidder is up to 59% with bidding with this selling, which really is not too high, yet they are always there driving up the bids. In the older days, I would have sent this POS a message.Smiley Mad


What can I do??





Bidding & Buying discussion

I recently had an unpaid item case opened on me. I contacted the seller previously and let them know I had made a mistake, but could pay them by 7-3-2015. They said that would be fine and if EBay opened an unpaid item case to contact them and they would let EBay know our payment date agreement. EBay did not open one, but the seller did over a week before our payment agreement date. So, I am not sure what to do. I have emails from them stating all this is true and I don't want the negative mark on my account either do I want to further do business with them since they went against what we agreed on. What can I do to remove the item from my account and the unpaid item case that gave me a bad reputation when I have bought several items with no problem since I opened account . EBay or Someone in Customer Service can read the emails between me and the seller proving this. How can I directly contact EBay that can look into this also?

Wrongful Unpaid Case Open

I am practically new in the eBay selling scene. I have been selling since Jan 2015- 101 good feedback and $25,000 selling limit. Unfortunately some of my suppliers were not reliable on they're stock items which forced myself into cancel already paid sells due to out of stock merchandise.


I contacted eBay last month to discuss the defects posted on my dashboard. Since then I have not listed anything on my eBay. However I have been looking for different & reliable suppliers to star listing once again. To my surprise I received an e-mail from eBay stating that my selling account has been suspended. In addition to that I have an open case from a customer who requested a refund after 30 days. Funds are still  on hold at my Pay Pal account.


Today I send eBay an e-mail explaining how I am working hard on getting better suppliers ( probably they do not care) to start listing again. No clue on what's going to happen either with my account nor with the $145 hold on Pay Pal.


Please someone advise

Thank you

A Buyer purchased my fixed price item and upon sending a reminder to them that I was awaiting payment, they responded, asking for my address to send me a money order? What should I do? Don't payments HAVE to go through PayPal? And I don't want to cancel the transaction because it will count against me for my seller rating.

Selling discussion

If I sell an item for $50 and the buyer uses $25 ebay bucks, where do I get my money. Does $25 go into my PP account from the buyer and $25 into my PP account from Ebay? Do I get all $50 (less normal fees) or does Ebay charge the seller if the buyer cashes in their ebay bucks? Thanks

Selling discussion

What to do?  I have 24 hours to ship this item out in order to stay within the Ebay rules and not get slapped if I disobey that. So, when I go in to print my label, It won't let me because buyer's address is invalid. So, I go into PayPal to take a look there and address is the same and PayPal says "OK to ship".  So, I sent a message to my buyer asking that they please check the address for accuracy and let me know something. Naturally, I haven't heard from them. Anyone else dealt with this type problem?

Had a sell today to a 0% feedback buyer who opened his/her account today. He/she paid in full so I know I have to ship it but something looks fishy to me.


Yes, I know that everyone starts at some point with 0% feedback but the fact the account was JUST opened doesn't seem right to me..


I know I have to ship it though.. what would you do?

Hello I got a message from someone wanting to know if they bought one of my listings if they could pick it up as they are in same city as me. It is a auction style listing with a bin option. I don't know if they plan to bid or bin. Is they a way to add local pickup and a shipping option in case they choose to bid so I don't lose out on other potential bidders? Or if I left shipping how it is they bid and win is there a way to not charge them shipping cost if they pick it up?

Got a message about picking a item up.

4 days ago I was the successful bidder on an item, immediately paid via PayPal, and have yet to receive from the seller any acknowledgment or confirmation that the item has been shipped. This is an experienced seller with hundreds of sales. Should I just wait a while longer or send a message to the seller? I don't use ebay very often, but in the past I've always received some sort of message.

I have an idea to do a project car. I'd like to raise the money for the parts, paint, etc through kickstarter or some other crowdfunded site. At the end of the project, I'd like to acution the car. However, I'd like only the people that donated money to the project to be able to bid on it. There are a few other sites I've seen through Google, but they require it be for charity or 501c related. This would be for me, a private individual, so therefore it would end up being for-profit.


Is there anything on ebay that can do this type of set-up? I looked into prvate auction, but that is mainly for hiding identities.


If not on ebay, has anyone out there done somthing like similar? What site did you use?

Okay...second post for me today...different situation. So thank youbfpr your helpnahead of time. I had an auction end last night and now the buyer is messaging me wanting a shipping quote to an Asian country. I sell internationally only through GSP. I know there are a lot of mixed opinions on GSP, BUT my personal experience with it as a sellerbhas been nothing but great and never had a single issue. So, it is the only way I will ship international. Now, I FEEL like this customer may have known this going in on this auction but felt like he could push me into a different international shipping method by playing coy and asking me the next day "how much is my shipping?". However, since I have never been on the flipside as an international customer making a purchase....I have to make sure that it is not possible that he just didn't realize this going in. Now....last thing I want is to force him into higher shipping than he wants to pay ..so my feeling is that maybe I should offer him to cancel transaction....what is your opinion? Is it possible that he didn't realize that I accepted ONLY GSP shipping as my international preferences or is he just trying to be slick and try and force me into shipping internationally his way. Up front I just want to say,I realize GSP cost a little more but I feel like it is my choice as a seller on this....thanks guys

Had two delivery persons tell me that having to open the back of their truck to pick up packages is causing them to be late on their rounds. One said he will refuse to pick up next time I have packages unless I schedule a pickup. 


So what if I have orders in the morning and go to USPS dot com to schedule a pickup and can't schedule the pickup until next day. Do I wait a day for the scheduled pickup to be in effect ( and get the defect for untimely shipping ) ?

Shipping & Returns discussion

I am so sick & tired of calling Ebay & getting a Customer Service Rep who is both unknowledgeable regarding Ebay`s own Policies & can`t even understand simple plain English when you attempt to explain the problem - even after you state it THREE times! They seem inhuman/robotic & babble back incoherently in nonsensical jibberish as if they`re reading off from a computer screen training manual. Half the time what they`re saying isn`t even remotely closely related to the issue at hand. Or, they constantly interupt you while you are speaking. If they don`t even bother to politely & patiently listen properly, how can they truly understand the problem? Now when I call & after they ask me my name at the beginning of the call, the first question I ask them is what Country they themselves are located in. If they respond with anything other than the U.S., I simply tell them they can not help me, hang up & I call back later until I get an actual U.S. CSR in California. As a Top Rated Power Seller I refuse to waste my valuable time attempting to resolve even simple issues. I consider it insulting to all Ebay Members to be forced into being provided some of the worst Customer Service of any Major Corporation on the entire planet. Shame on you Ebay!

Selling discussion

Really wasn't sure what board this belonged on but:


If you leave a negative response for a seller, is there anyway to combat a return negative response from them?


 I paid my auction promptly and tried to work out something with the seller several times.

       The problem was a set of books that had been rated in Good condition but were actually in Acceptable to Poor at best.  I decided to keep them if the seller would replace one book that had master copies(such as you would use in a classroom)that was missing numerus pages.  After several, not so nice, messages from the seller they finally sent me a book that had less original master copies than the one I received the first time.

      They did replace most of the pages but with copies of the originals instead of sending the original book.  I didn't want to spend anymore time or money sending back another book or books and am keeping the books but did leave the seller a poor review.


 I've never left anyone a poor review and I have a perfect score as a buyer and a seller.  I work hard to make sure my descriptions are as exact as possible and have never had so much trouble with anyone on ebay.  


But what protection does ebay offer to keep a legitimate complaint from being retaliated against.  I always post my buyers feedback immediately so they can offer whatever feedback they feel is appropriate without feeling threatened but this seller has waited to see, perhaps, what I might post before posting any feedback.  It's not hard to imagine their feedback may not be all that complimentary or even downright lies.


p.s. Wished there was a board that discussed Ratings, Feedback, etc.

Hi guys, I just bought some stuff on 05/07/15 & I've paid a total of  GBP57.00 including shipping (GBP12.00). About 20 minutes later, the seller contacted me & told me that shipping cost is going to be GBP47.00 & he asks whether I'm okay with that. I didn't agree and told him I would like to cancel the purchase. So, the questions are, 1. would I be penalized? & 2. How long does it takes for the seller to return my money?

How to retract a bid

Hi I bought a Samsung phone through Ebay - Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos i9082. When I received it - it was in a sealed box but there was no proper invoice with the tax numbers (legal requirement) on it  from the seller. I just received a  "invoice" from the seller with his contact details and IMEI bar code. I contacted the seller he said he will send the bill with tax registation but i did not receive anything for about a month. Then I contacted e-bay customer care a couple of times - over email / phone - I have the reference numbers of all our interactions but till date they havent been able to resolve this issue. Everytime they say someone from our team will call you within 48 hours. And there will be no one calling! I live in another city from the seller and took the phone to the Samsung certified dealer - and they say this phone sold on ebay is not genuine! I have been cheated of my money! I never expected companies like ebay to sell fraud products. How do I go forward? Any suggestions? There is no response from the seller or ebay? Legal action is the last resort but any other suggestions?

How to alert buyers to "seller away"

I've created my account while being in Poland, but I didn't want it to be Polish. Now I've left there and my account still sometimes is directed to ebay.pl, more importantly, all of the emails and messages that I send and receive through ebay has Polish head and tails which I don't like because I do not understand. I log-in to ebay.com but sometimes it directs me to ebay.pl where everythings is in Polish again.


I know one way is to close my account and open another one, but I do not prefer to do so because of the scores that I've earned so far.
