All the necklaces I see are listed as art glass beads, no plastic.  Mine just does not feel like glass - it's not cold like glass usually is and it's not all that heavy, although I guess the glass beads could be hollow (like glass Christmas ornaments).  I don't know if anyone can tell just by looking at photos if they are glass or plastic when I can't even tell with it in my hand, but here are photos:

It cost a lot to list here ten years ago.

 

Yes, things sold better because there was NO WHERE ELSE to shop for vintage and pre-owned stuff (and even some new stuff). Nowadays there are lots of places to shop. Everyone and his brother has a website, so there is 1000x+ the competition there was ten years ago.

Anyway, not wanting to start a big discussion over the 30 cent fee now since it's been discussed in a zillion threads already. I just wanted to show what fees used to be here for those not familiar with them.

2005 Fees--ahhhh, the good ole days!

I have a 6½" x 4½" photo folder titled "Souvenir of Berchtesgaden".

It was made in post-war Germany (1947/48).

It contains before and after pictures of Hitler's Eagle's Nest and his house in the Bavarian Alps.

"After" are pictures of what it looked like after it was bombed out.

"Before" are pictures of what it looked like before it was bombed out.

 

One "before" picture outside of Hitler's home has a swastika flag in it.

Here's the picture:

 

Since this souvenir album was produced AFTER the war was over I assume this particular picture does NOT violate eBay policy.

 

Am I correct?

I Think This Is Okay, But ...

How do I find out what kind of stones are in this jewelry?

 

The jewelry was purchased in South America, although I forget which country. I vaguely recall that the stone was specific to that region and one other in the Middle East somewhere.

 

Thanks so much for your help!

Isn't there a name for this flower? I asked on this a long time ago.

I saved it but can't access my old computer and I cannot find that thread.

This one has 25 petals. I know there are names for the smaller ones.

Thanks for any help.

 

When I list, should I use "poured glass" and "milk glass" in the title?

I don't even know how to describe this. I think the squiggly black stuff is glass, but whatever it is, it's applied to the outside of this blown amber vase. The glass seems almost to be crackled in very large bits, with the black lines applied in the ditches between each section. Only not always -- sometimes the glass sections are smooth and the black line isn't in a ditch between them.

 

I know that sounds crazy ... but I know you folks here have seen a lot more glass than I have and can possibly help? Thanking you all in advance for looking!

 

And I apologize if the photos are a bit grainy. They looked fine until this moment...

Is the writing on this pendant Chinese or Japaness or just artistic marks? I have had this for some time and now thinning out the herd so to speak. Any help?
The gold on the painting looks like it is hand done, do not know about the rest of the two pictures. The chain is marked 925, do not know if original to the pendant. Thoughts?
Thank you!

Hi there. I have these two dinner flatware coin silver pieces that I need a little help with. I know the spoon is by James Watts because of the hallmark but the fork is unmarked only having the retail stamp.

 

The pattern on both are identical but I wasn't sure how to sell the fork using or not using makers name. Does anyone have a clue if these are by the same person and does anyone know the name of this patteren.

 

 

Thanks as Always...........

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

Hello,

 

I recently acquired these two vases.  The 14" tall red one has gold threading in it.  It was sold to me as Phoenix Glass Anniversary vase.  But that does not seem right to me at all.  I believe it may be mold-blown but maybe not.  It does have two line marks running down the side.  Any ideas or input?

 

The second is a deco vase that I have had no luck with.  It is a bluish green.  It is 14" tall also.  Anybody know anything about either?  Also appreciate any comments.

 

Geoffrey

This vase measures about 10" tall. It is concave on the base with a machine finished rim. In my searching I have learned this is called a "bird bath" base, and that this base was common with  Sklo Union glass. I'm not finding any Sklo Union pieces that look like this. Any other suggestions? Is this considered spatter glass? Thanks for any help!

Hi All. Hope your holiday has gone well. I have a handpainted game board, not old, but 'antiqued' to make it look so. I thought it a decorator item, but there is a bag of 16 wood game pieces and 2 dice. Is it a handmade Parcheesi or Sorry game?

 

It's titled on the back 'Checkered Past', but I can't make sense of the second line, other than the date of '96'. Looks like 'Leq St. Purie' to me, but there isn't anything I can find like that other than Lac St. Pierre in Canada.

 

It's very well done and I assume commercial. There's a code of PT5B in the right corner of the back. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

I need help identifying this item and its age and purpose.

A rough translation of the front is "Victoria by the grace of God , Queen of Britain, Defender of the Faith"

 

It is about 6" in diameter and about ¾" thick.

Best guess is that it is made of hard, brown wax.

 

The pictures are fuzzy because I used a scanner.

IF I list it for sale I'll use my camera.

The way the hook handle on the right side is made to fit in it comes out if held or hung using it,but when turned around it does not fit in. Any idea what it is and it's age?

Before I purchesed, I contacted seller, said I would buy wheels at buy it now price of $300. he need not worry about shipping, I would send him 4 boxes and prepaid shipping labels.

 

I bought the item(s) and then requested an invoice for $300 (not 334 which included USPS) So far 9 days later after many heated emails to and fro, I have not got a rfevised invoice. He opedned a non paymednt case against me. I want to pay but cant.

 

 He wants me to send boxes and labels first before he sends amended invoice. Cant see the logic here. But now my non payment case will time out even if I send boxes before I pay.

 

I regret the faith and trust on myt side has been lost. I have a  400 transactions with 100% record with most sellers claiming super quick payment..........regret not able to do so in this instance.

I found this little guy at an estate sale. A Steiff expert has informed me that it is likely NOT a Steiff animal, but may have been made in England around the 1920s. There are no tags or buttons, but the fur is depressed around the neck like it may have had a ribbon or collar at one time. It measures 22cm (about 9") in its seated position, and is not jointed at all. The belly appears to be felt or velvet, rather than the mohair as is elsewhere on the cat. The inside of the ears is worn, but appears to have been felt also. I think the eyes are glass. It appears to be stuffed with straw or excelsior, from what I can see in a bit of loose stitching behind the ear. The body is stitched in an inverted "Y" pattern. 

 

I'd appreciate any information you might have about the manufacturer of this cat. I can't seem to find any others quite like it.

Identifying an antique stuffed cat

Greetings to all here! :smileyhappy: I hope this is the right place to start getting input on this wonderful Sake Set. So far, I can't find ANYthing similar; have googled it with nothing close. It belongs to a woman who collects quite a Variety of things...always unique. I think it might be from the 1960's. Pot has 2 bird heads on either end. One with open mouth for spout. Pretty rust glaze. I don't think it's a tea pot? Thanks for ANY tips or ideas on it! Can't wait to hear if anyone replies! :smileyhappy:Bird Sake Set 001.JPGBird Sake Set 003.JPGBird Sake Set 002.JPGBird Sake Set 004.JPG

Would you call this brooch a Maltese cross?

Found some beautiful items this week, which I'll post in the Eye Candy thread this weekend.

Right now though, I was wondering about this 10K gold pearl pin.

Marked 'K10' on the edge in a rose gold, it was pretty dirty when I found it, polished up niceley though. The mark was hard to see so it was only $4.00 in the junk display at a TS. :smileyhappy:

Looks pretty old to me, early 20th Century perhaps ?

Is there a way to determine if pearls are natural or cultured, and does it matter in a piece like this ?

TIA.

Hi Ladies!  I'm Leah, and I've been selling jewelry for a little while now.  I picked up a ring that I thought was Silpada, but now I am having doubts.  I can't find a similar ring anywhere!  Usually I will find SOMETHING else that is the same.  It really looks like the Silpada logo, but I am just not 100%.

Hiya and is this Silpada?

I have called ebay on several occassions and cannot get this resolved.  The last call I was transferred to seven (7) different people on ebay as well as PayPal ... every one told me it was not in their department.  I sold an item in March for $300 + shipping .   I had agreed with the buyer to share the shipping cost for which I refunded approximately $21.  The ENTIRE $300 was to be paid to the charity ... this is the information as shown in my donation account:

I CANNOT GET THIS RESOLVED AT ALL ... ONE PERSON WAS GOING TO CALL ME BACK ... THAT WAS OVER A MONTH AGO AND I AM STILL WAITING FOR THAT CALL.

 

Someone else asked me if I tried to send it again which put me in an uproad as I screamed at him, EXACTLY HOW WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO DO THAT !!!   Yes, I can send it to the charity myself but then I will pay all the fees involved with the transaction which I should NOT have to pay ..  I already pay for the shipping for this charity.    Can anyone tell me what to do as I am at the end of my rope.

Thanks,

Donation not paid to charity??

Sales plummet.

We sell nothing - we buy nothing = no final value fees for eBay.

We buy no packing/shipping materials from other eBay sellers = no final value fees for eBay. (eBay still makes monies on our store fee).

Very grim indeed.

Are small time sellers (we actually used to have decent sales) being politely asked to move on?

May 25, 2015 11:11:24 AM PT

No Sales No Sales = No Profit For eBay!

I see people selling hundreds or more of the same item, so I'm guessing they submit an order when monies ared received to the manufacturer and give the manufacturer a ship to address.

I don't want to deal with shipping.

Thanks! I appreciate any help.

I haven't sold on ebay in years, my husband does occassionally. I am decluttering and wanted to sell some old purses, shoes and clothes. I started with a few purses and spent all day taking pictures, measurements, making a descriptive and visually appealing listing and two actually sold, I was very pleased! A week later one of the buyers requests a return. I don't even see how this can be an option when you make your listing say "no returns". She said that it was a used purse (duh!) and that it was too small and was bulging when closed (um, don't stuff it so full?). So now my PayPal account is negative $16, because I had already requested a check be sent to me (my paypal is not connected to a bank anymore, I don't trust paypal but also I just happened to have already closed that checking account). I responded to her and told her that I'm sorry if she regrets her purchase but the item was described well and is sold as-is. The options to reply to a return item case are ridiculous! There are basically 3 options that are in the buyer's favor, giving them a refund of some sort, or sending them a message. Crazy! It is CLEAR that ebay sides with the buyer!!! I will never sell anything on ebay again, its totally not worth it. The only time I ever come to ebay to buy anything is when I need something really cheap, the last thing I bought was a $1 silicone dog toothbrush. Ebay can just waste away for all I care!

Buyer Returns

Opened a "basic" store front yesterday, and it appeared Ebay quickly moved all my items into the store. I had previously checked, and it appeared that my category should be at 6% FVF. As I understand it, the highest FVF for a store should be 9%. I sold two items today, and checked my account, and Ebay just charged me the usual 10% FVF on those items. Would anyone know why this is? Thanks!

Selling Phone and Afraid

I just received the Coach purse I bought from a new seller.

 

The listing was under NEW WITHOUT TAGS, the description said very little use and stored. The pictures looked OK and because I am a bit  familiar with Coach purses, I knew it was OK to buy this one.

 

Now I get the purse and  the corners are worn/lost color, the strap has threads coming off the edges, the inside is dirty.....definitely and with no doubt a used purse.

 

As Ebay suggests I contact her first to see if a solution can be reached just between us. As a new seller may be she needs to be more careful, perhaps the NWOT was a mistake, etc... plus I also could have asked for more pictures.

 

The purse is not trash, I still would keep it, but I was mislead nevertheless. Is it OK to accept a discount in this case? I know some buyers abuse the return policy just to get discounts,  I do not want to be considered one.

Bidding & Buying discussion

  I paid my final bill on 4/29.  Well, I visited to see if all was correct before I ended things on eBay. Having served my 30 days to close. To my surprise i see they over charged me on my final bill. I call and say please issue a refund to my account .I am told they will do this within 14-30 days.First thing they said when I paid the final bill "it will be ended on 6/31". So now they say 7/15 to 7/30.

 

   And to infuriate me futher they have called me a "power seller." I have not listed a thing in 6 wks. Only sold 200 things in 10 months. They are desperate to make their beta data match facts so they just came up with the little star with a stick figure on it.

Oh thanks eBay.

 

So It might take 2.5 months if you add the time served already (6 wks).  Seriously $32.00 bucks and some change. Wow.

 

Like it was a gift to me so I would stay and use it to list more with my trumped up power seller bronze star/crucifix.  I already paid and went through accounting to get the correct final total. Now because CS accounting cant add and subtract I have to wait to close my account ?  You pull this on everyone?  Or was it reserved for your top rated beta seller vtg.picken / brezhen2012  that is fed up with the mess of a business plan, mistakes in accounting and double standards in general. So what is next? You lost one get over it.

I sold two items that haven't been paid for. I contacted one of the buyers about this and they stated they wished to cancel the order as it was their son that placed the bid. The other buyer has not replied to my message so I have opened up a case with eBay and I am yet to hear back. I have been billed for both of theses items and I have not received any payment for them.

Follow up on an unpaid item

Hello, I have had top rated seller status for the last 6 months so at this point I really don't want to lose that. I have recently created stickers for the art that I make and sell. The only way to make it affordable so that ppl will buy it means I have to ship it by stamped envelope with standard USPS mailing. However, in doing this, I can no longer upload tracking (which is essential to keep top rated status) as tracking doesn't come with stamped envelopes. Shipping them in a padded envelope would cost more than I am making since my item is 1.99 and the cost of padded envelopes plus priority mail postage exceeds the price of my item.
My question is how do I ship an item like this while still holding my top rated status and while still turning a profit?

How to remain a top seller

Hey.  New situation for me.  Sold an item to a buyer for a fairly substantial sum.  Bought insurance as I always do.  After delivery received a message from a buyer claiming it doesn't work correctly and stating that she needs to return it.

 

I messaged her immediately, apologizing, letting her know that it was operational when shipped, and letting her know she can open a case with Ebay and that we will work it out from there.

 

No response.  Days go by, and she again messages me.  Asking me to contact her so that she can return it.  Again I message her, very specific, letting her know that I did answer her message, and that she can either file a USPS insurance claim (as I believe it must've been damaged in transit) or file an ebay dispute.

 

No response.  A few days later, same thing.  I called ebay, they verified that they can see my messages and that they thought my resolution suggestion was good, and that I should just wait for her to follow protocol.

 

It's been three weeks now, and again several days since she has contacted me.  How long do I have to wait, anyway?  I sold this item for a friend and he'd like his money, but I'm hesitant to transfer it out if he's just going to have to give me the money back so I can refund her.  

 

How is it that someone can be smart enough to message me to let me know that she needs to return an item, but not smart enough to read her own messages or to figure out how to file a dispute?  What the heck is she expecting?  For me to just issue her a refund without verifying her complaint or receiving the item back? What more can I do?  What SHOULD I do?  She hasn't even left feedback, bad, neutral, or otherwise.

 

Thanks.

I'm confused about the selling limits I have on my account. It is showing that I can sell up to 0 items or up to $0.00 per month, whichever comes first.

 

My eBay account was created 1/13/2015. I had purchased a few items and had sellers leave me positive buyer feedback. I listed my own first item for sale on April 17th. It received a few bids and sold on April 24th. The buyer was satisfied with their purchase and left me positive feedback. I have a total of 10 feedback's that are left on my profile. 1 being the first sale I made in April and the other 9 are from sellers that left me feedback from my purchases. In my seller dashboard, it is showing that my performance level is above standard.

 

Can anyone care to explain why my seller limits are listed at 0. Also, is there a solution to this problem?

0 item seller limit after first sale?

Feedback I just submitted:

 

On the Seller Dashboard page, I want to know which item was returned as Not as Described. How do I find out?

 

(I would also like to know which item got downgraded in the DSRs for Not As Described, so I can look at the description and learn how to improve. But I don't suppose you can tell me that one.)


Are buyers TOLD, before they leave feedback, that a DSR of 4 is considered a defect?

I feel sure they would hesitate to use it if they knew it would harm the Seller's record.

 

----

I know that information is "protected" so a seller can't attack a buyer who left less than stellar feedback.

 

But how are we supposed to learn and improve if we can't find out what we did wrong?

My Account discussion

Want to know which items caused my Defects

Hi sellers, I am speaking for 4 sellers in my household, myself included. One account shows the exact same number of views ranging from 3-9 views among the 22 items listed for going on 6 days.  We have collectively over 3 weeks had only 7 sales with now 5 unpaid items (1 paid, 3 closed unpaid, 1 still open). I have asked around to other family and friends if they are experiencing the same. All have said yes to at least one of the above (low to no views, sales, and or increased unpaid items).  During the weekly chat today another member brought this up. Jeff confirmed there was nothing on ebays end going on. One common denominator with all but one of the unpaid items was a 10 day auction listing (new suggestion by ebay in the spring update). The one exception was a relist from a closed unpaid item and we relisted for 5 days and it sold and the buyer paid :smileyhappy:

 

Now in defense of the ebay system none of us are listing more than the 2o/20 free listings. We are all non store owners and small sellers. This is not a boycott it is just that we can't afford to take a chance on unsold item fees of 30 cents per especially with the low views.  We all genuinly enjoy buying and selling on ebay (especially me). I am the one that talked the other 3 into selling on ebay.  I am feeling stuck on both sides. I can't afford to list and I'm not selling so I can't buy. I guess I am unintentionally contributing to lower views and sales of others. 

 

Anyway, if anyone has experienced this and you've made changes to overcome it and have picked up your sales I would appreciate some pointers. June will be here in a few days and I and the 3 other sellers will be listing more items. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi  I have sent a parcel to a buyer on May 11,2015 it was tracked, the problem is that the buyer hasnt received the item on time (19th May) and its been a week late on delivery. I contacted the Post office and they said that it was still in transit and they dont think it was lost. they didnt  give me more info since it was too early for me to file a complaint. They need it to be at least 10 days delayed before they can investigate.Now the buyer is getting frustrated and wants her money back. Should I issue her a refund or just wait until the Post office cantacted me again. I am a bit lost here since I have done the right thing and I have the receipt and the photo of the parcel before I sent it and even have a tracking #. Wanted to contact ebay but there's no category for this type of cases. Anyone please enlighten me?

So I sold an iphone 6 lcd on ebay that is cracked. Clearly stated "no phone"

 

Buyers bids on it thinking its a phone.

 

ebay findings was in favor of buyer

 

This is absolute b.S.

 

What is the point of stating no returns.

 

Description was clear! and ebay resolution team honored the case. Item is exactly as described!
