I hope these two pictures are sufficient, they are the only ones I got.
I would like to know if authentic and if anyone knows the name and approx age even better. Thanks in advance.
This is my find for the day. It has very high quality matte hand painted decoration. It actually reminds me of some the American arts & crafts makers, like Rookwood and Newcomb. I'm not sure what to make of the subject matter, ladies running silhouette. I'm almost certain the mark within the square is the signature of the artist or company. I've search gotoberg and couldn't find anything. Measurements, 6.5" tall and 5" diameter. Any thoughts as to maker or age are greatly appreciated.
There was a new message in my listing form today that demonstrates how much eBay knows about selling.
It recommended that I list my fixed-price item as an auction, that buyers are almost twice as likely to purchase it:
I was surprised when I saw this, so I looked at Completed LIstings for the last 30 most similar items, made two lists (fixed-price and auction). Here are the results:
Fixed Price - 17 items sold for an average of $5.29 each
Auction - 13 items sold for an average price of $1.61
There was no substantial difference in the style or quality of the items selling by both methods.
So what should we learn from this?
Either eBay's "trending," pricing, and analytical software doesn't give accurate information on prices and how to sell particular items or... eBay knows perfectly well that fixed-price items sell better and bring better prices in this category but wants sellers to sell by auction so buyers get those feel-good rock-bottom prices.
Either way, eBay gave me bad advice and I ignored it. I suggest you all continue to do your own research and don't trust eBay's suggestions. Look up the completed listings to see what works best for your product.
Previously, "I received an item that wasn't as described" went to Request a Return.
Now, "I received an item that wasn't as described" goes to Request a Refund instead:

I have found a brass mask that I believ to be African in origin. Was wondering if anyone might be able to confirm this, along with a region and possible age. Measures 11" long, 4 3/4" wide and is 3 1/4" in depth. Thanks

So I have this glass which has a gold coin embedded on the front. It appears to be a 1915 Austrian 4 ducat which I know has been restruck for decades. Thing is, this one doesn't have the bumpy border next to the rim like the restrikes I've seen. Sorry, don't know the correct terminology.
Thing is, would this be a replica of a restrike? second, why on earth would someone stick a gold coin onto a glass in the first place?
I did this about 10 years ago. At that too much was going on in life and sales was not good enough to mitivate me to put any time in it. I lasted about one year. Mostly just paid the rent and the cost of merchandise.
Now I want to try it again. I just secured a booth of size 12x15 feet. The rent is $1 per square foot. I also bought a few bookcases from a dealer in the mall.
The idea is of couse to sell books that are otherwise not sellable online. I know that it involves a lot of time to do this.
Pros? Cons? Experience?
Good morning everyone. What's up?
Hi! Can anyone tell me anything about this nice hand painted bowl? I saw several Acoma pots that had similar very detailed geometric designs. This one has some age to it. Can anyone confirm or deny if this is Acoma pottery and the approximate age? Here are the pictures....
This lovely bowl measures about 5" diameter x 2" tall.
OK, all the regulars here know I am a Victorian Sash pin maven, I LOVE them! So, I won a lot last week that had a sash pin in it that looked strange to me in the photos, but I bid on it anyway (keeping the wonky look in mind) and won. Got the lot and there is this poor, sweet, brass sash pin covered in a layer of silver spray paint!
At least they had the good sense to remove the stone first!
But what I want to ask is what is the best way to remove the paint? Should I start by soaking in water? Or should I go right to paint stripper? It looks fairly recently done since the painted surface is in good shape - lucky me
Here is a photo of my poor, painted sash pin (yes, they very nicely painted the back also!)
I think it says "This is a very rare & valuable coin"
Please help identify these animals maker and material... looks porcelain the colored ones, but the white Hyppo gives some doubt...
Thanks in advance.
As friends and family gather on this day to give thanks ... please remember ...
And remember those that can't be home today because they are so far away.
May you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving Weekend!
Can someone explain this situation: I shipped a Priority Mail Package on 11/24/14 in the early afternoon, around 1:00pm. I checked the tracking information today and "SHIPPING LABEL CREATED" is showing at an incorrect time -- & acutally hours AFTER the package was mailed? Does anyone have any insight about why USPS tracking is showing like this? I checked at usps.com and it shows the same thing. Any Ideas why this is happening?

hello, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
I have a set of 10 of this
Led glass ( bell sound, heavy), cut panels, ovoid bowl, 5.3/4" high, 3.7/8" wide (top), green-yellow under UV light.
Thank You so much for your help.
There was a thread posted on the old board discussing a reproduction filigree Deco style sterling ring set with an amethyst glass intaglio of a woman. The mark on it was quite interesting because it included the word Vintage.
The reason I'm posting this thread is because yesterday I bought a brooch that has the identical mark that was on that ring.It also had an original tag on it indicating it had been made in Thailand. Not sure if this info was known before so thought I'd share it here.
May your day be overflowing with many blessings to be thankful for . . .
Hello All! Can anyone identify this artisan? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.
I have been looking for an ID on this glass for awhile now with no luck. It stands 8 5/8" tall with an opening of 3 1/8' and a base of 2 7/8" across. The stem is has 12 facets and tapers down to the base. It has a lovely ring when tapped. Any help would be great. Thank you in advance.
Thought this was vaseline glass and could still be but was really surprised at the fiery glow. Bright yellow faceted heavy glass beads on a gold string with a barrel closure. Look at the bright orange glow under a black light. Thanks for your help. Carolyn
My grandpa had alot of military memorabilia. I found this massive collection of what looks to be black iron military pins. Could anyone help me identify them and tell me what they're for, what branch etc?
Cut glass experts, I'm looking for how to describe a cut glass goblet. I saw something similar described as criss cross with fan. But I've also seen some similar described as strawberry diamond and fan. How would you describe these?
Thank you for your help.
Can someone identify this glass piece? It has almost 7cm high and looks to be blown glass. No marks.
Thanks in advance.
Not sure how you would describe this knob/finial. Help is appreciated. Also what does the design with in the glass have a specific name? Is this EAPG? Looking for an ID. Piece has 3 feet. It stands about 7.25" tall from the finial ot the base. Also would this just be called a covered jar? Thank you.
I thought it was American Eagle Outfitters but it's not. Any one know who? Its's very heavy! It has lip stick. nail polish, perfume, cell phone, etc. key initials are AE Thanks Carolyn
Grateful for so many things and people this year! Happy Thanksgiving to all!....terri

Is this what it looks like? I am thinking it is a body part pendant. I do not have the chain. And does anyone recognize the hallmark? It sure looks like silver and is not magnetic but not marked so unless that hallmark indicates as such. It measures about 2 inches long by 3/4 inches. See second pic first. thanks for any help. Hope to list it soon.

Ebay, you're running scared. Afraid you're going to get cut out of a $.30 listing fee. But that's not all, you're also protecting your 10% fee for providing a service that works as it should some of the time. Then tack on the Paypal fees....mind you ALL fees are paid by sellers yet you sh*t on them and are effectively driving prices up as a result. That's real smart. These days customers buy on price alone and they don't care where the item comes from. Thing you fail to realize is that a seller's incentive already exists. They want to feed their family. But you interject with your awesome help. An example is the modification of seller ratings recently. You've asked sellers to work harder and gave nothing to them in return. When was the last time you were asked to work harder and didn't want to be compensated for it? NEVER.
So now you'll argue that you're doing the sellers a favor by pushing them harder. Guess what, if they earn more they worked their *ss off for it and you don't get credit for that. You do however get paid more don't you. Again, you gain at no expense. Just because you think the seller will get more business because of your ever so wize seller management; the fact remains they did the work, not you.
Here is a pic, I think it may be Field Flower or Sleeping on Snow. I have been looking for a week and can not find another like this
I appreciate any help at all!
When I try to create a request for combined shipping and confirm (request total from seller), i get the error "Page not Responding".
Does anyone else have this error?
I found this figurine and am having troouble nailing down it's origins or the culture it is depicting. Clearly the woman figure is pregnant, and the small male companion is gran for his sword. The figurine is solid brass. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
It's real fur, because you can see the skin under the hairs, has two matching hairpin, a bow in back. What fur would it mostly likely be? Also the year? Thanks.
Good morning my fellow **bleep** off ebay sellers!!! I just wanted to say EBAY is showing 2014 growth in sales!!!!
And every seller I have spoken to has seen a 70% decline in sales in 2014 !!! **bleep** is really good with ebay!!
Ebay's policies are broken & it's time we sellers show them that we have other alternatives to FEEBAY.
FEEBAY WHERE WE TAX SELLERS & PROTECT BUYERS!!
A new site with growing potential!! Bonanza.com which is shaping up to be pretty impressive.
Just sold a $400+ item on eBay, everything went great, buyer paid promptly. I’m looking around at the shipping info for no reason and I realize that the buyer is based in Cambodia, but the item is shipping to an address and person with a similar name in California. I paid extra for the signature confirmation. If something goes wrong and the buyer opens a case against me for any reason, what precautions should I take? Assuming I get the item returned to me. And I also had a question about some comments I see around, how do I check the item, before I sign for it, with the delivery guy present? Doesn’t the delivery guy have a time schedule? How do I check if it’s the correct item without screwing myself out of my money if the item is missing or incorrect?
I know it’s a lot to take in but any opinions are appreciated!
Ebay gives me a shipping ding!
I ask CS (in Utah) if my customer leaves feedback confirming delivery would ebay take the strike off ~ NO
The system can't do that she says.
I ask why the customer doesn't have an option to click that would confirm delivery or pickup
She says sellers would harass buyers that didn't leave feedback, I explain it's not a feedback issue.
It's the ability for a buyer to confirm delivery of merchandise
Then she goes into the 10% thing and it's for issues just like this
I then ask if I mail my customer a toothpick with tracking would this satisfy ebay
She said YES
So in essence local delivery and pickup can affect your TRS status.
Sometimes I think ebay has gone CrAzY
Let me start off by saying I'm a fairly seasoned shipper so I've already covered all the bases in checking what might have gone wrong, and still cannot figure this out.
I sold a pair of children's boots and the buyer paid. When I went to print the label, I found that Ebay charged the buyer only $6.35 for shipping when they should have charged $11.55. The shipping label page correctly displays "11.55" as the cost of shipping a priority 2-pound package from San Jose, CA to the buyer's location (Hawaii), and under normal circumstances that should have been what the buyer paid. But the ACTUAL shipping that the buyer paid is showing as $6.35, and I confirmed this was the case in my paypal account.
I went back into the original listing - yes, everything was correct. I had Calculated Shipping worldwide on a 2-pound priority mail package.
And dimensions are NOT a factor here. The boots are small enough to fit in a box the size of a Regional Rate A box - not that it's even relevant to this case, since I never specified dimensions in the listing NOR in the label I was about to print, which means that the standard non-balloon rate would be applied anyway.
I do not pass on shipping discounts to buyers either, but even if I did, the buyer should still have paid $8.99, which is my discounted price for a 2-pound priority package to hawaii. not $6.35.
I can't even guess how Ebay came up with $6.35. it's not equivalent to the cost of a 1-pound package to Hawaii. It looks like it could be the cost to send a 2-pound package somewhere within Zone 1 of me.
Any ideas how this happened?
(By the way, I already called Ebay and talked to the shipping department. CSR has refunded me in full for the cost of the shipping label and filed a report, but they're as puzzled as I am.)
I just tried to save a customer $2.00 on shipping with a Regional Rate A box. I can no longer select the box on the invoice. Ebay had A and B available in their drop-down menu. They never had C. Now they have none. What gives with that? I heard nothing about the USPS getting rid of them. Are they scheduled to end the first of the year or something?
I recently sold an item. I just get an email from buyer stating they have a problem with their paypal and it will take atleast a week to reset it. They told me to relist it if I couldn't wait a week for payment.
First, I've never heard of such thing about Paypal. Sounds like buyer is trying to get out of purchase. I don't want to relist but I don't want to wait a week. UGH! What would you do?
Since here lately one has to wait at least an hour to even talk to an ebay rep, and then maybe be unlucky enough to talk to a very rude one, not to mention never getting a defect removed, I am wondering if I should even bother to call....
I had 5 stars all along, and now I have 4.9 in "description" and a defect .
Running a report I found out who gave me the low stars. Person says the following in their FB for me:
I would highly recommend. Item matched description. Packaged well for shipping.
So- do you think that's worth the effort to see if I get it removed?
Also, am I allowed to leave a follow-up FB for her saying:
If you recommend me, why leave low stars???
Had the laptop that appears to be a retail return. The box was taped up, I opened the box and the laptop appears new, but I had to test it to be sure. Hooked it up, tested it, took a bunch of pictures of it running and the specs screen then erased it so that the buyer would have to set it up themselves. This whole process along with the pictures was in the description. I listed it for $799 New Other and said it was an opened box and I tested it to make sure' A guy offers me $400 for my $800 laptop and since sales have been slow I took it. I should have looked him up first because he leaves negative to almost everyone. So I got one too saying 'Sold Used Item As New" In the emails between us he told me the process on how to test it and how to erase it. I have only Macs and did not know how to erase a PC. I emailed him back and forth for a week, he said he is a drop shipper and will ask the buyer if he minds the condition of it and will return/remove neg if they are satisfied. Haven't heard from him since.
2: Sold an item and with different choices of shipping. FEDEX Ground or USPS Priority. The guy picks Ground. I ship within stated time and it take a week to get to him. Negative feedback 'Slow Shipping'
Can I fight these? 99.5% 6500 sales
Now this is just weird. I got an e-mail telling me about the 500 free listings promotion for November 21-26, 2014. It even shows up atop My eBay page:
However, when I list an item (I tried 4 items today 11/25), it counts towards my regular 50 free listings (again, see the screenshot), and doesn't go towards the 500 free listings. I have over 300 items ready to list, but I can't submit them if it's not gonna go off the 500 free. I've never had this problem before with "free listing" promotions. If I change the category on an item (like to "Entertainment Memorabilia"), I get charged a $0.30 Insertion Fee - it doesn't even count toewards the 50 free, much less the 500 free.
It seems like there's no way I can get it to count towards the 500 free listings. That's gonna hurt any chance I have of making any holiday sales.
I recently received and cell phone that the seller said was clean but would not give out or check the ESN/IMEI number. I received the phone and the inside white label had been partially removed. I tested the phone on another LCD and found the ESN/IMEI number and then found out the phone was stolen. Because I went past the 30 days, (after ordering the LCD and then doing the repair) I was not able to file an eBay claim. I did however file a PayPal claim. After appealing a decision I finally won and received my money back. The trouble is that anyone who is selling a phone either new, for parts or otherwise should be forced to state in the auction that the ESN/IMEI number is either Bad, Stolen, Reported Lost or Clean & ready for activation. I repair computers and cell phones and when their are so many out their I continuously get an eBay error stating that I have sent out hte maximum number of emails today - please try again tomorrow. The problem with that is some of those auctions end today and I would need that information prior to placing a bid on that particular item.
My suggestion is
Force sellers (as I am one of them) to list the ESN/IMEI number is Bad - Reported Stolen or Lost or Clean - Ready to be activated OR Allow more emails to be sent out each day by potential buyers that need answers.
WHAT SAY YOU?
I shipped a glass double boiler on Monday. The tracking didn't show up as accepted on Tuesday but another package sent the same day did so I decided to wait until today to find out what's happening. Called the PO and was told that since I used a recycled box that was previously used to ship beer they were returning it to me. I crossed out the beer advertising but I guess that's not good enough.
Question: The buyer is in the loop and I informed her of what happened. So what should I do next? Should I cancel this sale since there is no way it is going to be delivered to FL from PA by Saturday even if I can get it reposted today. Do they cancel the label that's already on it? Can I reuse it on another box?
TIA for any advice.
I'm about to list these sterling cufflinks & think the logo looks familiar
but can't 100% place them as Dior.
This has happened to me a few times now. 99% of my listings are buy it now but for some reason buyers are able to buy my items without paying. So they move to sold but i never receive payment. This is getting very irritating and i want to stop it. eBay says require immediate payment is automatically on but obviously that is not the case.
I contacted ebay to ask them if Friday was considered a business day for shipping items sold on Thursday. I asked because I do my ebay from my job and we are closed both days. I have one day handling and do not want to ship Friday since it is a holiday/vacation day for me. When I asked them I was told that it was a business day, then upon further questioning, I was told it was considered a holiday and items sold on Thursday do not have to ship until Monday. I have been told wrong info before from ebay reps so I am curious if anyone else had this question and what the answer was.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
Very wierd situation.
I've had two seperate purchases from two different newby customers. It's the same item, but different colors. Both IDs were created Nov. 25, and obviously have zero feedback. Both purchases have been paid, so I am responsible to ship.
Today, I received contact (via eBay email) under yet another ID asking to cancel one of the purchases.
The note was sent through the ask the seller a question, not either purchase.
Again, the ID in the note was NOT either of the IDs connected to either purchase.
I responded to the email asking to clarify which ID they are referring to. As of yet, I have not heard back. Waiting....
I have no clue what to do. Especially -- since I'll be dinged for a couple of defects if I don't ship soon enough, or if I ship and they return.
What would you do? Advise please....
Some buyers, as we know, readily hit the negative or neutral feedback button without any contact to the seller. Is there a way to block buyers that are constantly unhappy with sellers?
I bought a pair of Google Glass for $1800. And then I had to pay another $40 for next day shipping. I ordered a white pair, but he said that they weren't in stock, so he would send me a charcoal pair and then when I got back from my trip (that's why I needed them for next day shipping) I could send them back and get the white pair. So the charcoal ones arrived on time, but they were used. Even though I had ordered brand new ones for so much money. He emailed me (yes email, not ebay message) after I got them to make sure I actually got them. While that was nice, it was very odd for a seller to email me and not message me through ebay. It was sort of a red flag for me. So I emailed him back about the condition of the Glass and he said that "they are a floor model since you're sending them back", which I thought was odd, but not a red flag. So I got back from my trip and emailed him, he said to send them back and exchange them. Well a day after I returned, a family member passed away so I had to fly out to California for that. I got back and it had been past the 30 days that allow the purchase to be eligible for buyer protection, so I was a tad worried. After I got back I emailed the seller to just ask if I could return the Glass for a refund since they weren't the right color, and they were used. Plus he hadn't even ordered the correct white pair yet. I had paid for my cousins funeral so I was redoing my budget and I thought that I would ask if I could return them since they weren't a nessasary expense. Well he declined the return, which didn't make me mad, I sell things on ebay all the time and I would probably not want a return either. Anyways, he then gets a whole change of attitude. He starts calling me a liar, and all sorts of names. Furthermore, when I told him "all right never mind about the return, I'll ship back the charcoal ones today to get the white pair" he replies "I also need you to leave me excellent feedback before I ship the new unit out". Is that clearly not feedback extortion? He will only ship me my correct order if I leave him positive feedback, when in fact he only deserves negative.

I am a fairly new seller on Ebay and can't quite seem to understand how the Ebay bid increments work. I recently had an item up for auction with a starting price of $3.99. I received two bids. The first bid was for $5.00 and the winning bid (two days later) was for $5.01. I believe that both bids were manual bids. My understanding was that an item with a bid of $5.00 would require that the next bid be at least an increment of $ .50. After over 30 minutes on the phone with an Ebay representative (most of that time placed on hold), I got the answer that a manual bid for any item can be placed for any increment over the previous bid (including $ .01) regardless of the Ebay bid increment schedule. Does this sound correct? If this is correct, I would expect to see a lot of bidding with $.01 increments, which I have not observed. So, is the Ebay increment schedule valid only for automatic bids?
I need a little advice. I am selling at item that has roughly 6 views an hour, and it was posted last night. When I woke up, I had multiple best offers of $75.00 from different buyers - no higher offers, no lower offers. Item is listed at $119.99 OBO. I do not know how to handle this situation fairly. Do I counter all offers with a slightly higher price and see who jumps? Do I accept the offer of the first buyer to offer? This item has only been listed approximately 12 hours at this point, so I may even be better off waiting it out a little longer. What would you do?
if I leave negative feedback as a buyer can the seller leave me negative feedback even though I payed for the item within seconds ?
i purchased a item paid within seconds and seller is giving me the runaround blaming the shipping company for me not receiving my item yet ? i noticed they havent left me any feedback i think that is unfair that they are allowed to wait and see what feedback the buyer leaves before leaving feedback even though the buyers end of the deal is over as soon as they pay
I forgot how to put my listing into 2 categories instead of just 1. I don't know which one to use so I want to use them both. Can someone help me on this? I haven't sold anything other then a telephone on here for over a year.
I have a customer who has purchased some items and made payment. How long can I hold an Item after printing label before taking to post office. This client is going to order several more items from me next week and wants all shipped at once. I am locked into 1 day handing to maintain top rated.
I've been trying to figure out what company is the maker of this top. The label is red with the word "RED" in black lettering. The inside care lable lists R12012 which I was thinking is similar to the RN # however I have been unable to find a website where I can search this number.
Pictures attached. Thanks for your help!
I want to block a person from buying from me. I can't seem to get to the right page . I need step by step instructions .. Thank You Janice
Hi, I am wondering which days sellers do not have to ship? Is there a calander that eBay has? I am offering 1 day handling time so I just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
I listed a music CD, and was very careful to get all of the details exactly right. I even posted a photo of the original item.
The buyer just wrote to me because he thought it was a mini LP instead of a jewel case CD. The photo clearly shows a jewel case CD, and the info. supplied clearly does not say it's a mini LP CD. He wants to return it at his expense because he acknowledges it's his mistake.
Should I refuse to accept the offer to return, and if so, does he have the right to leave negative feedback based on his mistake?
OK, if I list something and agree to use the global shipping service (and it sells outside the USA) it cannot be listed as free shipping unless I pay eBay for the shipping, correct?
I have been more than patient with the seller, but I have returned the item and have not received a refund. When I attempt to contact ebay customer service, it puts me into a loop that always ends with a "return item" or "contact seller" button, neither of which are useful since I have already done both and neither has gotten my money back.
Is ebay's "guarantee" as worthless as it seems?
and when i want to contact seller it asks me the item number and when i put it it said wrong item number because is removed from ebay, how do i get my money back or the new item?
The buyer sent me a message asking me to please tell his post office that he will pick up the package at the post office. I plan to ship tomorrow. Anyone else get such a request? Does the buyer mean write a note on the exterior of the shipping envelope? I wanted to find out if this is a common practice among buyers/sellers before I ask him to explain.
I don't know if this is the right board, but a couple of years ago someone here translated a similar label.
This is a pretty scarf with Oriental scenes. According to that earlier answer on this forum, part of this label says "100% cotton." Unfortunately, I've tried guessing at other words in an online translator, but haven't had any luck. It's not "scarf" or "made in China."
Of course I can't type in the Chinese characters to translate to English!
Also, shouldn't anything that's imported after a certain date (forget the year, oy) be clearly marked "Made in China" in English?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
I just bought a $270 camera after seeing the 10% bonus for today and I only earned $5.40 in ebay bucks. I should have earned $27.00. What's going on? When I click on the terms and conditions in the email I received it takes me to ebay's home page. So is this a bogus deal?

Hi my friends,
yesterday i received an email from PP which is this one:
"We are writing to let you know that one of your buyers opened a chargeback with their card issuer. The buyer stated that they did not authorize this purchase.
If you have any information to help us dispute this chargeback with the card issuer, please log in to your PayPal account and go to your Resolution Center to provide it.
Please submit your response within the next 10 calendar days. The timeframes for responding to chargebacks are determined by the card issuer".
I'd like to ask you what is this all about and how can i handle it? Thank you.
Is there a way to set the auction End Time myself, so it is Not automatically calculated and based on the "time" I submitted my listing? Thanks.
The buyer is not asking for a replacement, but I'd like to be nice.
During shipment, the post office managed to drench an item with men's cologne, even though item was wrapped well and contained in plastic bag! I believe the buyer although haven't seen any photos of damage.
I have another almost identical item I could offer to replace -- again, buyer didn't request this, or say she was returning item, but it feels right to make situation right.
I would like to suggest that she return item for an exchange but not sure how to do it. Can she return item to me with a check for me to ship her another? Is that allowed by ebay? (probably not!)
What is best way to proceed, or should I just leave it alone since she didn't request return or refund?
Thanks for your help
I buy early for Christmas in order to make sure my purchases arrive in time for the holidays. How do I handle feedback? Items that are sold as "new" will not be opened before Christmas (such as software) so I can not test to see if they work or are legit.
I want to be fair to the sellers as they ship promptly,but I do not want to leave positive feedback only to find out later it was broken, not working or not legal. I need to leave the feedback open in case something needs to be returned. eBay's policy on returns is that if positive feedback is left (say I leave feedback because of shipping) then you can not open a case if the buyer does not let you return the item.
Hi all, a few days ago I bought a LED projector for $20. The seller had an acceptable reputation (98.4%) and had sold around 400 items. I paid through paypal straight away after I order it. A few hours after I paid, the item was marked as posted and a tacking number was provided (note that this all happened on a Sunday). The next day when I checked my purchased history on ebay and I got the message:
“We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction. If you've already sent payment, the sale should process as normal and you don't have anything to worry about. If you have any questions about delivery, please check tracking or contact your seller. If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Centre to help resolve any problems you may encounter.”
So the item have been pulled by ebay and I have checked that the seller is now unregistered. I checked the tracking number by clicking on it on ebay today and no event shown. I also used 17tracking.net (a universal tracking website for parcel) and I couldn’t track the item either. I got a feeling that this tracking number is fake.
My question is what should I do now? I know that ebay in the message asked me to wait, but I guess this is a generic message that appeared when item is pulled. For my case, the seller is now also unregistered. Should I file a case now with ebay/Paypal? Or should I wait until the end of the estimated delivery date to see what will happen, then decided on what to do? This is the first time it happened to me, so I am quite lost. Any advices would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
My son dropped my packages last night at the post office, since I printeed my shipping labels he put them in the outgoing bin. I checked thks morning and the tracking shows nothing, what can I do?
i listed an item for bid with a buy it now option that went away on first bid, can it come back somehow, or can bidding exceed what your buy it now option was, not that i would want it back considering how people are bidding.
Hi again all! Have another purse to see if it authentic or not. This time Coach. I can not find anything like this purse on the internet.

This may seem like a silly question, but I can't seem to find the answer! I recently linked my eBay to a business and got switched into the advanced lister, which runs super slow on my computer. Is there an easy way to switch back to the "easy" lister? The only way I've been able to do it is selling a similar item from an item I've previously listed or sold that used the easy format.
I want to sell an item, but the customer can't pay until next week. I'm fine with that. How do I make the transaction so he doesn't get hounded for not paying and I don't get docked for slow shipping?
First off, I apologize for my ignorance. This is my first time running into this. Please be gentle.
Buyer paid. Contacted me immediately saying the "ship to" address is wrong. I refunded the payment and tried to re-invoice. Couldn't figure out how to do it. Searched the boards and read that cancelling the tranaction is required, then the buyer must repurchase. Ok, did the cancel (yes, with the correct reason).
Now... the repurchase? How is this done? Do I need to relist?
I messed up big time and set up the shipping on a 3 pound item with "21x13x10 in." dimensions (the 21 and 13 probably being in feet, not inches) with a resultant retail charge of $39.40. Needless to say, I own the buyer a significant refund, since the actual retail price is $12.20. Funny thing is the buyer paid without question- that a LOT of money! I voided the label and went to post office and purchased the correct one there. Not so funny thing is the postal employee couldn't figure out why the online charge was so high. She looked at the label and said everything was set up correctly - didn't notice the DIM WEIGHT PRICE notation.
My question is how do I issue this $27.20 refund....I didn't see an option under All Selling/More Actions. Do I go into PayPal and do it, or somewhere else within eBay? Do you recommend I also send a short note to the buyer explaining the situation now - or wait till I see that the refund has been issued???
