Hi looking for help with this acoustic guitar. Not sure on age or maker as it is completely unmarked for a company name. Has no headstock label or paper label on the inside. I can see very very faint numbering on the inside at the neck base, can only read 34(23??). I have read that with no labels it could be a fake or a copy? Any help is appreciated.
A buyer offered me a "best offer" offer. After looking at the acceptance page, it mentions best offers are not paid in advance. How does this work?
This what it says--
|Immediate payment is not offered with best offer at this time. If you accept this offer you will receive payment through other payment methods.|
I found this fairly old watercolor painting that is signed illegibly. It is probably from the 60's or so. It is framed and measures about 22" by 16" By any chance, can someone make out the name? Thank you in advance
Checked thru the floral motif section on ddoty but couldn't locate this. Anyone know? Thanks for the help.
I can't resist pottery faces, so I brought this one home today. It is signed - looks like Lott. At first I thought he was a bit lopsided but after I took pics of the profiles I think it could really be 2 different faces on purpose. What do you guys think?. I have been searching Lott Pottery but no luck. Just wondering if anyone had seen this mark before. Thanks so much for your help.
I'm thinking by the way it looks on the back it's glass? Thanks for help
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Does it look familiar to anyone?
Is this a snake chain ? Not stones maybe glass.,1990's? Magnetic clasp.
I typed in Corning Ware Blue Cornflower, and this little clickable gem showed up above the first listing. Then I tried to duplicate it, and couldn't make it happen again! Anyone else run across it yet?
I was wondering if anyone has seen this mark before. It looks like a man holding and kissing someone, I've never seen anything like it.
The pin is also marked "STERLING" on the back.
Thanks for any help

Any special keywords I should use when listing?
How should I describe the chain?
Measures about 1 1/4" by 1 1/2" and marked SC, I researched andfound Silver Cloud, but doesn't seem like their style, or Sarah Cov for that matter-if they even signed with initials only. Anyone know this brand? Thanks for looking/help
I've had no success determinging the origin of these two large pots. (12" to 15" tall) Hoping somone can point me in the right direction.
I was looking to buy a car for my son and inquired about two. They both had the same song and dance:
A buyer started/asked to return an item on 6/20 and i agreed to accept the return. In the return details it had said the buyer has till 6/27 to ship it back,it no longer says that... Well a week or so went by and i never got it so i figured he decided to keep the item and the return would time out... Well now i am getting this message for the second time from ebay...(below) At first i just ignored it and figured i'll just wait till the refund times out like the last time this happened. Then i reread the begining and it's got me nervous.
What concerns me is it says that the buyer has indicated he shipped it and i should refund by 7/26 once i receive it. So far he has not added a tracking number,and i have not recieved the item back. Then i notice below the big blue "issue refund" button it says "If the item hasn't arrived yet,the buyer may not be returning it." WHAT! Thought the buyer indicated he has shipped it...
I'm afraid to contact the buyer because i don't really want to refund,i just offer refunds as part of the hoop jumping to keep the TRS benifits. I'm also afraid to call CS and have them refund the buyer via some new policy... What happens on/after 7/26? Does he get an automatic refund? I'm i over thinking this? Will this just time out?
Snake Chain? Costume Bracelet Turquoise color stones. Looking for age? and how to describe it
Can anyone make out the signature on this piece? Also what is it?? I looked up CAVES PETRISSAN but all I found was its a restaurant in Paris - is this a advertising piece?
Any info would be helpful. Thanks!
Can someone please help translate these Slavic(?) inscription?
I found this in a storage unit won at auction - it is big (w/frame 48" x 41 w/o frame 42" x 33") and HEAVY (seriouly, it has to weigh at least 30-40 lbs.!). It appears to be a Erte, but there is no signature - hand signed or in plate - anywhere on it.
Did Erte produce art without a signature?
Is this a Erte?
I appreciate any help!
I have a glass plate which has a chip but the chipped part is still attached to the plate. A chip that hasn't broken away. It can't be felt when running the tip of the fingers over it, but a fingernail does catch on the edge. Is there an appropriate term for this kind of flaw? A percussion mark perhaps?
Here's a photo:
I have 6 of these stems and am going nuts trying to identify them. I think the blank is Fostoria although in the book I have it is hand drawn. The glass is done in a series of 'panels'....optic? As for the etching, I can't find it in the few books I have, or on the chat about glass site. It looks simple enough - perhaps generic? Any help will be greatly appreciate it.

White slag candy dish. Milk glass? Maker may be Imperial or Fenton, no mark . Measures 9 x 8 x 2" Any info appreciated.
I have these dishes from a consignor to sell. She tells me they came from a church camp in 1963. She saw them used in a Harry Potter movie by Hagrid when he served tea to Harry, Ron and Hermione. I know nothing about Harry Potter and I know nothing about these dishes. Can anybody identify the marking on the back? Thank you for your help!
Hello - I have an antique Tiffany locket that was my grandmother's. On the side of the locket it is marked "MADE IN ITALY" "TIFFANY & CO" "STERLING".
Then on the loop it is marked "925" and what looks like "302".
Any ideas on what the 302 means or the age?
how to delete the multible variation from a draft that is saved but now i dont need the various options.

I want this section below out of my life Thanks Randydolf
I don't know if Taupou visits this forum any longer, but if not, if there's anyone else who could help me ID these baskets, it would be appreciated.
They are both shallow baskets/trays, measuring about 7 1/2" in diameter. I looked through two books: "The Art of the Basket," and "Indian Baskets," and decided they might be either Western Apache, Yavapai, or Havasupai, with the dark color dyed with Devil's Claw. Western Apache is my least favorite choice, because they seem to have more detail.
Then, again, I may be entirely wrong, so any help appreciated. Thank you.

This was part of a large bag full of antique engravings & photogravures? I got last week. What was interesting about it is it had a sticky paper wit $2,000 written on it - and what look like the artist's signature nect to the title.
Is the signature "in plate' of hand signed? The way the last letter trails down past the indention all around it makes me a little hopeful it might be real? Did they even have ink back then?
And if signed in plate, it's the only one like that in the 30-40 prints I have.
Finally, is this thing worth close to $2,000?!
Thanks, I appreciate the help
I'm hoping someone can help me with a still sealed, vintage bottle of L'origan De Coty perfume that I recently purchased from an estate. I'm not sure of it's age or amount that this bottle originally held (measures approx. 2.5" tall). It's housed in a sturdy cardboard box with a tassel on top. It seems to have had a stamp attached beside the tassel and still has a bit left that reads, "France". I'm also not sure if the bottle was designed by Baccarat (?). The bottom reads, "Coty France" and has, "104" and an unlined d.
I would appreciate any and all help.

I am a working woman selling studio equipment on eBay. I was aiming for a top seller rating eventually increase my stock and get better search results and boost my sales.
A few Weeks ago I sold a PreSonus Firestudio to a local zero feedback buyer. He was forcing me to come over to his house and set up his unit over a beer or else he will file an SNAD claim. I refused the request for obvious reasons. He filed an SNAD claim and was decided in my favor. After the decision he continues to blackmail me via email and promised revenge.
I never had any problems or returns before with these units and maintained 100 % feedback.A few days later, four Presonus units from for different local buyers was ordered in the total value of $1000. SNAD claims were filed immediately after the purchase and simultaneously escalated. I received three transaction defect strikes within a single day pushing my account below average and would probably about to get the fourth one, had I not cancel the order before the payment was made.
So far, only one Presonus unit was returned to me, completely ruined, urinated on and with a marker drawn a **bleep** on it. I lost shipping and handling and the unit. eBay says it doesn't want to get involved because they did not see the unit and they don't care. I am not allowed to appeal the case. Not only I lost thousand dollars, but I am also genuinely scared and anxious and fear to sell under this terms.
Please advise any help would be appreciated.
I'm aware that I can't add any seller inserts, can't have the eBay logo on my label and all that, but I have a question about the packaging itself.
I recently ordered some shipping boxes off of amazon, and it looks like on the bottom they all have a barcode, made in the USA, and the name of the company that made them. Will the post office mark any media mail packages I send out as payment due because of this? And if so, is there any legal way for me to cover up parts of a box? Maybe by gluing paper to it or something. I don't believe a shipping lable would be big enough to cover all of it.
Thanks for any and all advice.
I think I know the answer to my question but you never know.
I wish we could go back further than 60 days to look at items we've sold in the past. Many times I'll need to relist an item but I can't view it to relist it.
I tried doing a search for my item and listing all the 'sold' like items to see if it's there but it'll be too old so not listed.
Please advise if there is a way to go look at older than 60 day listings?
So I received this offer for an item Im selling and got this huge sob maybe story ,and was told this item wasnt able to be found on the big world of internet shopping ."scratches Head " and would i consider lowering price...So after some research the item wasn't found by myself either ,,,decided to mark it up ...anyway Im new but not Stew....and the buyer would have been a 1st time buyer so they couldnt have bought from me based on my polices ,,and I was wondering if this is common for some one to see the value and try to low ball you just to get it from you on the cheap to resale
Hi, I am looking for some help before submitting a return request. I have two issues that need resolved but I don't know how to proceed.
I ordered two exact mower deck belts from a ebay seller a few days ago. The shippment arrived, but once I opened the package, it only contained one belt. I first contacted the seller to notify them of the missing belt. However, after looking at the description, I realized that the belts I ordered were supposed to be Exact OEM belts, but the belt he sent me is a generic belt of a slightly different size. So now I want to return the item all together. However, how do I return an item when I am missing one of them to begin with? The return request ask how many I want to return. If I just say 1 of 2 then I am still stuck paying for the missing belt. But if I say that I want to return 2/2, the seller can say that I didn't return all the items (even though I only recieved one to start with).
Can anyone offer any suggestions with how I should proceed? Thanks!
I've recently just started the Ebay Store. I was inspired by other entrepreneurs that resell clothing and how they make over $2,000 in 60 days. I thought it would be so easy and now I'm relaizing you have to be patient lol. I don't get much views or anything. Any ideas to help raise the views up?
I had a beautiful vintage dress listed for around 60. I was made an offer of less than 50% and we finally settled on about 45%. I shipped it to her and she gave me negative feedback saying it smelled of cigarettes. I have a smoke free home. I emailed her and said I was sorry it smelled of cigarettes and offered for her to return it...she said no she would have it cleaned. Now my 100% positive rating has been harmed by someone I gave a hugh discount to. I'm very upset...anyone have suggestions. I did write a counter to her negative feed back and I blocked her.
So I am new, 71 sales --- I get 100% positive stats on the seller hub
except for the tracking which is continuing to drop like to like 64%...making me think I am doing something wrong.???.
I sometimes dont use the ebay shipping labels ( i weigh things but dont always trust myself to pick the right shipping box size cost ect...)I sell different sizes/ records, books, so i usually use media mail?
so I pack it and go to the post office and then enter the tracking number myself in from the receipt...I have never been late to ship anything, In fact I usually get the item out the day they pay....I have had no issues with customers? Im afraid this will effect my "ratings"
Thanks anyone that can help me fix this?
So I bought something from a seller on eBay a on 7/7/16. I payed through PayPal and eCheck from my bank account. It took about three days to clear, but the seller still hasn't shipped! They are located in China, but I think they should have gotten my payment by now. Over the past two weeks I've sent them three messages telling them to check through PayPal since my payment has cleared. But they keep insisting that it is pending. So I considered opening an "item not recieved case".
I just wanted to see if I could open an "Item not received case" through eBay but now I'm getting this message, "We're sorry there's an issue with your purchase. It doesn't look like this item has been paid for yet. If you've already paid for this item, you can ask your seller to mark the item as paid. If you haven't paid for the item yet, you can pay now." But my order is completely paid when I check PayPal so I won't even be able to open a case and the seller won't mark it as paid since they believe I haven't paid and keep insisting it's "pending" when it is not. I've also tried opening a case through PayPal and I'm getting the same result.
So I called eBay to make sure and they told me to call PayPal, so I called PayPal. PayPal confirmed that my order was cleared and completed but there is nothing on their end they can do about it. They said they are holding the funds because the seller hasn't shipped my order yet. They advised me to tell the seller to call their customer service, so I've sent the seller another message to call PayPal customer service. But I really don't know what to believe at this point. Not sure what to do because I can't get a refund if I don't file a case. Seems like I'm screwed.

Is it possible to change listings that have ended with 14 day policy to a 30 day policy? Seems that I cannot even change to advanced tool using the re-list option. It is quite inconvenient to re-upload all the pictures to change from a 14 day to a 30 day policy.
I just received a purchase of 3 stuffed animals marked new. The seller had them packaged in an old box that wasn't completely sealed. 1 items is damaged and they all smell really musty and moldy. Very strong odor. Can I return? what do I have to do? Does seller pay for postage? The box is so damaged I'd have to buy a new box as well. What's the best way to do this. I havn't gotting feedback from seller yet will he be able to leave me negative feedback for requesting a return?
Would someone please help me identify this brand. There is no tags at all. This is the third time posting.

Thanks guys. I managed to work up a hack to recreate a link to a properly configured page.

eBay must have fixed some things that weren't broken.
Hello, I have a Antik Kraft purse that I can't find on ebay for sell or sold. Is this authentic?
I want to block someone from making any further purchases from me. I didn't used to have a problem find the place to do it, but it seems now it's not there.
I had a buyer request a return, and eBay of course gives us the option to buy a label to allow the buyer to return the item. However, when I click that option, it takes me nowhere so I don't know how the buyer actually gets the label. The two times I did this option, the buyers said they never received anything so they could not ship back to me. The third time, I just bought one on stamps.com, scanned it, and added it as an attachment to an eBay message to the buyer, to ensure they got a label. Frustrating.
How do I delete a question or statement made in the community if I"m not seeing that option?
Is there a way to block an annoying person from sending messages, I am being harrased by someone wanting to lowball an item I have for sale. I have asked him to leave me alone with no effect.
I wanted to buy an item, but also wanted to ask a question. I went though the procedure but his/her site said please use an email address
they gave as there were a lot of questions, so I sent an email to the address and receive this reply back:
There's a problem with the recipient's mailbox. Please try resending your message. If the problem continues, please contact your email admin.
mx.google.com gave this error:

The seller is in the Ukraine and I am in Canada, but now if I did purchase the item Paypal may not go though...
Any suggestions or comments welcome...
I'm pretty new to selling here on eBay. I've already had a few successful sales, no problem, but today I received a refund request on an item 10 hours after I'd already shipped it and entered the USPS tracking information. I obviously plan to call both eBay and PayPal in the morning to try to figure this out, but I'm really worried that someone is trying to scam me and this situation has made me feel really putoff of the whole selling thing.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much to anyone who reads and responds to this.
Say you have an item listed with a start price of $10.00, There are 2 bids on it but the price still says $10.00. Why is this?
I sold the items more than $1,500 and just wondering how much eBay taking away from my account, i.e., listing items, insertion fees, pictures and etc.?
On the PayPal site, I can see how much PayPal chaged all of my sold items that is very easy to see. However, there are NO way to find how much eBay charged all of my sold items.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Could someone please help identify the language that the text is written in, on this page? I was told it is from a religious text. It is framed and under glass. It is at least vintage - again - from what I was told. I had hoped to include several pictures but it looks like space for one is offered?
Thank you very much
Hi, can anyone help me with this purse in finding the style name? It measures 10x8.5x2.5. Thanks in advance
I sold a pair of very good condition pre-owned Brunswick bowling shoes back on the 7th, and I get a Refund Request today from them stating that the soles detatched during bowling the other night. There were pictures provided, but it seems like more damaged was done than they explained. Starting to wonder if it's even the same pair =/ What do you guys think? Should I give a full refund? Here are some before and after pictures...
I am not able to send any message to seller. The page is reporting "This message cannot be sent at this time.".
Just a note to all sellers out there! I am a seller, I clearly state on my auctions that i do NOT ship outside the USA...canadian buyer bids and wins, told her i do not ship there, refunded her, then she leaves negative feedback! called ebay, they wont remove it?! unfair, closing my account, had it with ebay ALWAYS sides with buyers.
In my buying account, I bought a BuyItNow recently, paid immediately, but several hours later, the seller (a very long-time seller with a high feedback count) refunded with no explanation (beyond the standard "Out of stock or not available" message in the eBay alert). My message to them asking for an explanation was ignored. A couple days later, they relisted it, this time as an auction, apparently hoping to get more money for it.
In my 12 years buying on eBay, I think I've left maybe two Negs in that entire time, if I remember right, and today was that second Neg. They earned it.
I haven't decided yet how to respond if they ever bother to contact me about it. I might suggest that they pull the plug on their relisting (which has bids) and honor their original commitment to sell it to me once I re-pay them. Otherwise I don't see any great reason to agree to a feedback revision. Their feedback shows a number of revisions already; they were at 100%.
Aside from all that, haven't they already done themselves some damage by cancelling and refunding without any agreement from me? If I understand things as they are today, that cancellation may do them more harm than the Neg I left later; is that right? (I gave them a full week to respond to my message, but all that happened in that time was that they relisted the item.)
Apparantly, this buyer had a broken PC motherboard(MB) identical to mine. So bought my MB on Ebay, received it, waited
a few days, then claimed "the Mobio is not working .. In fact upon arrival I noticed the CPU pins where bent on the corners
compared to what it should look like .. I still assumed that may just be a flaw in that particular board and assumed it
would not be a factor - sure enough to the MOBO generates codes not allowing for a boot." Buyer denied any damage
So I informed the buyer I was an A+ Certified PC Tech & MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) with over 20 year
experience working on PC's, servers, networks, etc. & that I personally packed & shipped that MB & there was NO damage
of any kind. I also told him I had a 15 year history with Ebay with 946 100% feedbacks. He responded he had 100% feedback
also. He failed to mention he had only 23 AND that sellers can't leave negative feedback for buyers!!
In his response he said "I too have personally built quit a few systems so this is not my first rodeo." Yeah. right Einstein.
That's why you claim you spotted bent CPU pins and "assumed that may just be a flaw.....and assmed it would not be factor"
and then installed a CPU & powered up the MB. Right!
I told the idiot that I had a fellow tech with over 30 years experience double check me as I prepared the MB & packed it for
shipping. He responded with this beauty; "I too had my assistant present and noticed the bent pins upon opening the
package together and .....could not believe it - As mentioned before we were being optimistic and believed it could of
been part of the design..." So now you have an assistant & you didn't think it was "flawed" as you said earlier; you & your
expert assistant thought mangled & bent CPU pins "could of been part of the design..." so you placed a CPU on the
damaged CPU pins, locked it down & powered up the MB.
Oh yeah, that sounds like the actions of a guy who "personally built quit a few systems".
He then says further "however when we compared it to my original MOBO it was clear the pins came damaged."
Yeah. So he admits he already had another MOBO. Obviously he had bent the CPU pins on his MOBO & planned to ship
it to me & keep mine.
Then he says "I have zero personal gain to falsify that I purchased a damaged product not described as sold." Moron.
Except you steal my MB & get 100% of your money back from Ebay.
I pointed all this out to Ebay Resolution reps & provided them pics & they refunded the idiot's money anyway. I was fortunate
that I had transferred his payment out of Paypal already. Ebay informed me that my 15 year history with them & 100% rating
with 946 feedbacks was meaningless as they always take the buyer's side even though he has only 23 feedbacks.
Before sending me his broken MB, the guy uploaded a pic of bent CPU pins from some MB like mine & claimed it was the one
I sold him. The MB he returned was not only NOT the one I sold him, but it wasn't the same one as in the pic he uploaded to
Ebay! (His pic is a .png named buyer.png & the pic of the MB he sent me is return.jpg.) I showed those pics to Ebay as well.
They didn't care. Facts, truth, years of service, 946 feedbacks, 100% positive, etc. mean nothing to Ebay.
I just called Ebay & gave them one more chance to lift the suspension on my account, remove that idiot's negative feedback,
& quit sending me notices asking to pay them the money they stupidly refunded that crook. They said no. So I'm quitting Ebay.
I told them that if this is their policy, they need to flash this on the screen as soon as a member hits the "Sell an item" icon;
****WARNING TO SELLERS ON EBAY****
BUYERS OF YOUR ITEM CAN LIE & CLAIM YOU SHIPPED THEM A BROKEN ITEM; THEY WILL BE ALLOWED TO KEEP YOUR
ITEM & RETURN A BOX WITH A BROKEN ITEM LIKE YOURS(OR NOTHING AT ALL) INSIDE. THEN YOU WILL BE REQUIRED
TO REFUND THEIR FULL PURCHASE PRICE, SHIPPING, AND RETURN SHIPPING. AND OH YEAH, YOU CAN'T LEAVE THE
DIRTBAGS NEGATIVE FEEDBACK LIKE THEY DO FOR YOU. CAUSE HERE AT EBAY, THAT'S HOW WE ROLL.
I sold a 32" flatscreen TV, and I want to know if putting it in its original box will be enough for Fedex Ground. I still have the styrofoam inserts for the TV, and the foam bag that you put the TV in. I also will put in a lot of packing peanuts.
Will this be enough for Fedex Ground? Should I get shipping insurance and/or a signature confirmation?
Also, any ideas on what to do about the TV box advertising that its a TV? I feel like it may not be safe if I don't have a signature confirmation.
Can I get out of this? What would you do? He has to be a scammer. I will pm his name so you can see for yourself.
We listed a Fender Stratt history broschure in the electric guitar catagory and got a 3 day slap on the wrist for the audacity of listing miscatagorized, apparently it may confuse poor shoppers by selling a Fender strat enthusiast item in the fender strat catagory, but would it have been fine to list in multiple catagories? I think it is another attempt to drive away the small seller, we are running a small music store and every little bit helps, and we have always used ebay, to the enrichment of the ebay machine, for a while, but we are no amazon and will never be.
A customer bought 4 items, paid for with one invoice. I boxed them up and shipped them out. Unfortunately I didn't know that I had to upload tracking manually for three of the four items since the shipping program only assigned tracking to one item.
Now, I've got 3 defects for late uploading of tracking on three of the four items IN THE SAME BOX.
I've spoken with an account specialist with eBay and been informed that this cannot be changed and I will simply have to live with losing my TRS for the next three months.
Is this correct?
Im sure you guys have seen this type of post all too often and your probably tired of seeing them so i apologise for posting yet another 'ive been scammed' type post.
I recently sold 8 console games right here on ebay. All 8 were auctions which ended all that the same time. The very next day (19th) i sent all 8 games out at the same time to their buyers using the local post office. All 8 were sent 'Royal mail 1st class - Estimated 2-4 business days'. I actually lost the postage reciept on my way back from the post office.
On the same day 19th i got a message from one of the buyers asking if i could post same day, i ofc said yes and did so.
The (20th) he messages me again saying "did come today give tell Monday to come if not won't be happy person"
I explained the postage and estimated delivery times to him.
On the 21st he sends another message: "still nothing" I knew now i was going to have a problem with this guy who has only 2 feedback.
On the 22nd he sends: "still nothing"
On the same day (22nd) he sends another message: "refund me now or can go throw eBay to my refund"
Obviously i didnt refund him since the game is in the post.
This morning a case has been opened by him.
3 options were presented to me: 1. Provide tracking number which regretfully i dont have. 2. Send a refund. 3. Message buyer.
I messaged buyer to explain yet again about the postage.
I have a feeling he is going to get his refund and hes going to keep the game right? So frustrating. I can handle losing the game and the money but im going to be landed with a negative feedback that i dont deserve.
I get this kind of return all the time.
I had a summer sale and offered up some decent but languishing stock at a giveaway price. In this case a $90 shirt for $4.99 + s/h
Buyer buys 2 and pays $9.98 + $6.80 for priority shipping. Total payment $16.78
Buyer gets the shirts and they don't fit him. So he opens a return request, which I approve.
Package containing the shirts arrives back. He apparently didn't have access to any flat rate padded Priority mailers at his post office so he paid counter rate by weight - from CA to NC - over 1 pound - $12.40
On receipt of the returned shirts, I refund his $9.98 purchase price.
So at the end of the day he has no shirts and is out of pocket $19.20 after the refund
Most of the returns I get are just like this one - for fit. And while I understand returning an expensive item for a refund even though it puts the buyer in the red, I truly don't understand buyers returning such inexpensive items and being so disproportionately in the red. Surely at the counter, when the USPS clerk says That'll be $12.40 please, the buyer must realize that he's free to change his (or her) mind and keep the item(s) and donate, gift, or sell. But no....time and again I see buyers end up seriously out of pocket just to have tried something on and send it back again.
Is there any kind of limit whatsoever on how much a buyer is allowed to buy on ebay? I'm starting (or rather trying to start) a vintage video game collection, and over the course of the past week, I have been outbid by the same bidder on nearly EVERY SINGLE AUCTION I have bid on - and various systems too (Genesis, PS1, PS2, etc). No matter what I do (and I'm putting in very reasonable bids - usually 80 to 90 percent of what the individual items in the lot would sell for separately - and that in and of itself takes a fair amount of research for each individual listing), there he is with 2 seconds to go outbidding me. Clicking on his history, he hs bid on 2779 different auctions in the past 30 days, which is more than 90 per day, almost exclusively in the video games category. And as best I can tell he wins most of them. And we're talking some expensive lots (several for $200 to $300, another for $850). By my math he's buying at least a half a million dollars worth of collectible video games every year. Total feedback of over 85,000.
Now, I suppose if someone has enough money, that person should be able to buy whatever they want. But as a collector, it is frustrating to watch one person single-handedly drives prices of multiple gaming systems through the roof, and I have to wonder if people like this will drive away hundreds of smaller buyers who quickly give up?
Would like to see more promotion offers for FREE Buy It Now listings. Helps to boosts sales. Been waiting a while now for an offer like that.
Overnight the search box in sub categories disappeared and now I'm unable to search in the sub-categories. This makes E-bay utterly useless to me as I'm not going to wade through tons of junk in a category to find one or two items that I'm looking for. Please bring back the sub-category search ASAP or I'm going to have to go elsewhere to find what I'm looking for.
