Hi all,

 

I have this hand painted round jar.  It has a pattern inside both bottom and lid.  There is a label but I cannot make out who it is.  Does anyone recognize this?  It measures 6" at the widest.

 

Thank you!

I have no idea what this large stone is in this Native American cuff bracelet. In hand it's a dark mottled red/brown/black with turquoise flecks. 

Does anyone recognize the artist mark ? I've looked in all the usual NA artist mark sites.

Identify this language?

Hi,

I was hoping to get some help with this bowl. 

I've searched google and have only found a few examples with the lobster motif, some new cups/plates (obviously new) and

2 pieces in museums with very similar painting. It appears to have a good deal of age to it.

I've found many piece with the Oribe green "drip" glaze but none with this type of motif.

If anyone could help wtih a possible age range or any other ideas/info I would greatly appreciate the help.

Or even leads for more research.

Also it appears to be signed on the bottom, if anyone can decipher the artist that would be great!.

 

Thanks

Hi,

     I won an auction yesterday but have been unable to complete the checkout due to error while connecting to Paypal from checkout page. I have tried multiple things like - delete cahce/cookies , different browser etc but nothing seems to work .

 

I even contact Ebay customer support and looks like they dont have the slightest idea as to whats happening. From my own research I figured out that the issue could have been due to having different  email ID for paypal login than the one used for Ebay.  While this is not an issue with other global sites like Ebay US and Ebay germany (I have used both for purchases via PayPal) there seems to be problems with Ebay UK.

item not receive

Good morning,

 

There is problem. Please help me to solve it.

 

I bought a dress from China, it didin`t fit and I wanted to return back. I send by registered post, tracking number: RN063563419LT . 

 

Long time on the tracking China showed that it is on air.  The seller said that nothing got. So I filled report  for shipment search in Lithuania Post. Now I got their answer, that the item was delivered to seller and attached China post document (but I don`t understand anything). Look at the attached file. Also I add messages with seller. Now, he don`t asnwer to me. 

 

Dear 2011yafexstore,

Hello,

I was send you back this dress (read our letters). And you said that you don`t receive it. I fill the form to the Post for missing the item. Today I give the ansver, that you reveived it on 2015-04-13. They attached the photo. Please look.

I hope you will answer on this my problem. In other case I have to write to Ebay policity.

Can someone tell me how old this plant stand is? I thought it was earlier when I saw tongue in groove work, until I saw the slot screw. 

But it also has chinese characters written inside - to help the person putting it together remember what piece goes with what - which you don't see anymore.

I'm guessing the 40's - 50's but hoping older!

Silver stems with stars any help??

Grrr... haven't been on these boards in a while.  Just lost my whole post because I can't for the life of me figure things out any more, let's try this again.  

 

I am looking for information on a set of bookends I recently found.  They seem to be in the style of Bradley & Hubbard, but bear no circular mark.  They measure about 5.5" high by 4" long by 2.5" wide, and weigh about 2.5 lbs each.  While they appear bronze, the bottom of one shows raw, ground cast iron.  

 

I have searched in vain for a while, using multiple keywords, but cannot find another set just like these anywhere online.  Does anyone recognize them?  Would be most grateful for any information as to maker, time frame produced, rarity, value, etc.  Would also welcome any gentle corrections as to any errors in etiquette I may have committed here; it would not let me preview my post so I don't know if my pics are OK or not.  Smiley Sad

 

Thanks!

Second request. I would like to ask one more time to correct the negative feedback you have left on this working item. I take feedback seriously.
You want to save money, but can't fix things yourself, and depend on some anonymous "service technician"... who claims the LED panel issue you have that is attached to my part...claims My part is bad. Is this person GE certified? I don't think so...in fact I am certain.

Sorry, I have witnesses to saw the part working before disassembly. An LED issue like you are having is connector related, not due to my part.

If you take no further action, then, you can a LIBEL law suit will be files in the court of Washington County, Iowa, against your unsupported slanderous posting on an electronic forum, to protect my integrity and business credentials.

YOU will have to provide PROOF of your statement, in a Court of Law, not to eBay, not to me.

 

What do you do with people like this????

Seller that is not professional

I made a purchase yesterday and I received an e-mail mentioning that the item that was initially listed has been removed due to unauthorized third party access. I've already made the payment upon ordering.

 

Now that I'm trying to process a refund for the item, I am not really sure how to go about it now that the item has been removed and there's no way to chat live with anyone on eBay's support page.

 

Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

In regards to the item that was removed:-

ORDER TOTAL
US $9.99

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 Center to help resolve any problems you may encounter.
 
ITEM PRICE:

So do I wait now for the item or should I just raise a refund request?

Good afternoon eBay community

 

Question....do you believe it is reasonable for the seller to ship an item to the "buyers shipping address information" presented to them on the "Congratulations Your Item Sold" email sent to the seller from eBay? I received one address in the "Your item sold" email but the system contained another. I shipped to the address "Your item sold" address and wondering if it was reasonable to do that. A copy of the email I recieved is belwo.

 

Dear cmarlow,

You did it! Your item sold. Please ship this item to the buyer after your buyer pays. As soon as your buyer pays, print your eBay shipping label.

Complete one of the following:
  • Print a shipping label. Avoid a trip to the post office, print and pay for your label at home. Printing shipping labels on eBay also offers you reduced pricing on some shipping services, and when you print shipping labels on eBay, your tracking information is uploaded automatically.

Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

I've got this early hand painted milkglass piece, which I thought was either a vase or a dresser bottle.  It measures 7" in height, and the clear glass was hand applied at the top.  So, my questions are:  Is it Fenton or someone else, and is it a vase or dresser bottle?  Any help would be appreciated.

Found this large painting signed Lee Reynolds & while researching it I found that most Lee Reynolds paintings were actually done by his students from Van Guard Studio who used his name on their finished products.

I read that one way you could usually tell a Van Guard was that they had 2 sets of 6 numbers on the back of the paintings. - Mine has a 6 digit number on one side (132642), but the other number is only a three digit number & it has the letter R in front of it (R413).

 

Is the R for Reynolds and is this a real Reynolds painting?

 

I appreciate any help.

Hi,

We can intercept your package for additional fee but it will cost $85.51 to do that. It is because your package was processed as 2nd day air. Please let us know if you are still willing to pay that fee to intercept the package. The fee will increase as time goes by as well.

Hi I am needing help from the ebay biard members to identify this pottery piece. It does have a marking on the bottom. I beleive this is a incense burner or something of that nature. It has that personality in the face of some of picasso work, though not a picasso, lol. Just remonds me of his work. The pottery piece is around 8 inches tall. I am hoping someone can maybe help with the marking or artist this may be attributed to. any help is apreciated.

Hello everyone

 

Today i made a buy for a friend of mine. He than changed his mind and wanted to cancel it so i did. Everything went good i asked the seller to cancel and he did. Got my money back as my paypal account says.

 

After that i wanted to buy the same item this time as a gift for my friend so tried to buy it (*same account) but when i choose paypal as the method to pay it with and try to login using the popup it show an error 70407. My account is fine cause i have the money which i got back from the cancelation and which is the same amount cause its the same item.

 

Tried a dozen of times but cant get it to work. Why does this happen?? Please help !

 

p.s. : Do i need to confirm the cancelation of the item ?The message from ebay cited  as above and there was any accept or decline option ...

         Also i found out that i cant buy anything at all not just this item.

 

The seller refunded $xx.xx back to your original payment method, and you don't need to do anything else.

Is anyone selling anything?

I wanted to get some feedback from everyone regarding a recent interaction I had with a seller of a used snowboard:

1) The Buy it now price was $800 (Burton Mystery in case you are curious what board costs that much).

2) I offered $600. I fully expected an initial counter of $750ish, with a final price around $725 (plus shipping). There (obviously) wasn't an automated rejection to my offer. 

3) Less than a few hours later, the Seller counter offers with..... $800. 

4) I contacted eBay to see what the policy was regarding counter-offers by Sellers in relation to the Buy it Now price. 

5) By phone, eBay says that they have no policy, and the Sellers are free to counter with whatever price they wish equal to or less than than the Buy it now price.

6) eBay encouraged me to contact the seller to give them "the benefit of the doubt" to make sure that the counter offer was "not a mistake". I knew it wasn't since the seller had multiple best offer transactions in the past. 

7) Seller confirms that they thought my offer was too low and so they countered with the buy it now price. 

 

 My question are these:

 

1) Since we are only allowed 3 offer/counter-offers, doesn't the seller essentially game the system and eliminate one opportunity for the buyer to lower the price, by countering with the Buy it now price? 

2) Was the eBay representative wrong about eBay policy?

3) If indeed the representative was correct about eBay's policy, should eBay revise this policy so that Buyer counteroffers must be less than the Buy it now price? I realize that the buyer could still counter (using my example) $799 and still effectively eliminate 1/3 of the offers, but eBay is meant to be a free market exercise.

 

Thanks for your thoughts, critique and advice.

Best Offer Policies

So I just had my first experience with an immoral buyer. Asking for a refund on a digital item he will get to keep along with his money. I sold a game code, and yes I know the whole thing about game codes here so no lectures please, I am ok with the risks, all of my buyers have been honest, except this one. My question is, in my case, this person opened a case on PayPal saying this was an unauthorized purchase. In this case, why should I refund? Why do I need proof in the form of a tracking number? What does that have to do with anything? She's in my list under items sold, how is that not proof enough that she authorized the purchase?

 

Edit: She opened the case on PayPal, not eBay, well the email was from PayPal.

Immoral buyer

I am absolutely dumbfounded on they way EBay supports it's seller.  I missed the quantity line when copying a sellable item.  I sold one extra than what I had in stock.  I immediately (within 1 hour) refunded and messaged the buyer with my apologies.  Several days go by...I get negative feedback... "Paid for these turtle beach only to find out they were out if stock days later".  DAYS LATER...he wrote. A complete lie. How is it my fault he didn't read his email?  Per Ebay, He can leave any opinion he wants....even if it's a lie.  My only recourse is to reply to his feedback and/or  ask him to remove it.  Ebay would not remove it.  It's no wonder so many people I have spoken with refuses to use ebay anymore.

 

I have two selling accounts with approximately 14k in sales in 4 months and am seriously contemplating closing them and moving on.  Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing?  Is there an alternative selling market any better?

Ebay is absolutely horrible for the Seller

Recently I read that the Previous CEO stated that Ebay never intended to have this many sellers with the TRS rating. Every change Ebay makes is appears to make things better for the buyer but also to lower the number of TRS qualified sellers. They need and want that 20% discount back and rather than just come out and eliminate the program, which would openly make them look bad, they make life hell on those that still manage to qualify for it and blame the seller for not being "up to" the new TRS standards. Each time Ebay says something is for informational purposes only, once they determine that it can be used to lower the number of TRS qualified sellers, it suddenly becomes a "new part" of the qualifying factors for attaining and maintaining your TRS status. I recently received a defect for shipping time although I mailed it the next business day the buyer did not receive it for 10 days and left me a 1 DSR although I also received a glowing feedback. It took a couple of calls to CS to finally get that one removed, but I finally got a CSR who looked at my history, my email to the person asking why I had gotten the low DSR and requesting he contact ebay to have it changed.  Naturally the buyer did not respond to the email and I have since blocked him from future purchases.

 

Now a couple of days later i suddenly have another defect on my account, after going almost a year with none (shortly after posting on these boards for the first time complaining about the defects for the slow USPS shipping, I am beginning to see why so many use alternative names on here). This one is for cancelling an order on a customer. Technically, I am guilty of this because I did refund his payment after I discovered I mailed his purchase to a different customer in error. I contacted the buyer and he understood and said to go ahead and refund the money but when I got the item back from the other buyer to let him know and we would finalize the deal. No contact was made with ebay regarding this and the item is still on my awaiting payment listing. Yet ebay gave me a defect because I refunded the person his money, period. I contacted CS and supposedly I will be able to have the defect removed once I send the item to him and prove delivery, although I am sure I will wind up with a defect for not shipping within 1 business day of cleared payment..

 

Again, no complaint was filed by the customer, I did not file for a FVF refund and I did not cancel the order, but ebay states that any refund through PayPal is considered a cancellation of the order by the seller regardless of the reason for the refund. So now according to this new ruling,  even if the buyer requests a refund prior to shipment and you agree to it and the buyer is happy, ebay will still give you a defect until you can at least prove shipment but preferably delivery (allowing for refunds due to lost in the mail, which I have had happen). Now how is this policy anything other than ebay trying to give defects to the seller?  They are going through payment records and filing defects against the seller even if the buyer wants to have the item cancelled.  There was no contact made with ebay regarding this issue by the buyer or myself, nor did I file for a FVF refund.  Am I missing something in how I am interpreting things or is this opening a whole new can of worms for seller defects??

They gave a lowball offer 65% less than my asking price on a higher priced item.

I checked their feedback left for others...one of which was a negative calling the seller unethical and to beware...

 

Should I tell them why I blocked them or just let them forever wonder?

Buyer wants to know why I blocked them

I have finally found a nice item to sell, sadly it becomes slightly cracked by usps poor handling 50% of the time, there is no amount of bubble wrap that will keep this item from cracking, sadly the buyer doesn't know there is an easy fix available and youtube videos on how to fix it, that take 5 mins., Anyway, how do i get buyers to send me a message opposed to opening a request for return? Is there a way to manipulate the post sale page to get them corraled to sending a message and away from "return an item"  in the my ebay seciton?

I've finally been bitten by a common bug

This buyer purchased a Samsung Tablet from me.

 

I got to looking at the Feedback and this person left no feedback but a few sellers left feedback for them. Looking at the feedback, I find it strange that out of the 6 Feedback score, some feedback is the same. I find it strange that 3 different sellers wrote the exact same feedback.

 

Can you somehow put fake feedback?

 

 

Do you think this looks fishy?

 

I just don't want to mail my item and get scammed. I've been scammed before so I'm extra careful these days.

 

Thanks.

Does this seller look legit to you?

My employer gave me a large funeral daybed to sell that folds up into a wooden box that is 39"x26.25"x29" and it's 49 pounds.

 

At first, I was just going to list it for local pickup only, but she wants us to ship it so there will be more potential buyers.

 

So I tried to see if we had a box big enough to ship it in, but she said to just wrap it in bubble wrap and slap a mailing label and ship it that way!

Do you think that's safe? I would be afraid it would get damaged and we'd have to issue a refund.

 

But I went in and tried to post it anyway. I added 2" to each side to allow for the bubble wrap, and put that in as the package size, but ebay's system wouldn't accept it.

 

So I tried to search uline just to find a legitimate box size that it would fit in which was 43"x36"x29". I don't have the option to buy that box to use it, but I figured if I just entered the size into ebay's system, but shipped it in the bubble wrap, the shipping fee should calculate to be more than enough to cover the actual shipping. But ebay's system wouldn't accept that size, either.

 

Do these sizes go over ebay's or the post office's limit? Is there a way around this? Or would I have to ship this as freight?

I'm being offered a sword, supposedly worth $7,000, from WWII, only 100 made in China, sold to the U.S. and Russia. I'm hoping someone recognizes it and knows something about it's value. Does this look real or sound like hogwash? Sorry the photos are so bad but that's what the seller provided.

WWII sword, only 100 made, recognize this?

I've bought books on ebay for years, with few problems, other than the occasional poor packaging. A book shipped in a paper envelope probably won't arrive unscathed. In the past month though, I've had three experiences with three different sellers, of buying books described as HARDCOVER, only to get paperback. Sellers were fine with making refunds, but why is this happening? One seller blamed eBay listing policies, which I don't understand. I suppose that if you list hundreds of books, it isn't possible to check the description all the time, especially if you're just copying and pasting an original description from a publisher into your listing, but you can't check the listing title? If I see HARDCOVER / TRADE CLOTH and PAPERBACK, both in the description (and you do see this), a bell goes off, but if I see HARDCOVER / TRADE CLOTH in the description AND in the big lettered listing title itself, why should I think otherwise, or have to contact a seller to make sure this is the case? Thanks.

A QUESTION FOR BOOK SELLERS

I'm a little confused about ebay's refund/return system.

 

I recently purchased a limited edition doll from a seller for $200.  These limited edition dolls come displayed in their own box with a plastic window cover inside so you can see the doll.  The pictures of the doll and the box showed them in great condition.  However, when I recieved the item, the window cover was cracked and dented in several places.  I contacted the seller and sent them pictures showing the damages.  The seller had a "no returns" policy which I was okay with.  I didn't necessarily want to return the doll, I just wanted to be compensated for the damages.  The seller refused to even discuss a partial refund since he claimed he shipped it in "perfect" condition and the responsibility fell to the postal service.

 

The seller was actually the one that opened a dispute with ebay and they decided in my favor by forcing a full refund on the seller's part.  (Not at all what I initially wanted.)  In the email I receieved from ebay, they said that they had fully refunded my purchase and that I should have the item available for the mail carrier to inspect.  That was over a week ago.  I've receieved the full refund but I have yet to hear from either the seller or the postal service about taking the doll back.

 

I'm just really confused about what's going on with the item.  Apparently after ebay had decided in my favor, the seller turned around and filed a claim with the postal service for the damages.  Is that claim what's holding up the return process or is ebay mailing me a return slip?  Or am I the one that needs to contact the postal service to have the doll shipped back?

Good evening,

 

I am trying to link my paypal account with ebay. There are two links in MyAccount. One if I need to sign up for paypal. The right one in case I already have an account. Both links direct me to a paypal page on which I can only create a new paypal account - even though I am logged into paypal.

 

Is there a wrong link? Am I doing it wrong? Can I add ebay to paypal somehow? (Since from ebay to paypal doesn't work)

 

Thanks,

Florian

Linking to Paypal not possible

The so-called help pages tell me what is allowed and not allowed; but, they run me in circles giving me no way to report illegal activity.

 

This time, what I'm looking for is how to report a seller using a fake street address.

 

How do I report a seller who lists an item that directs me IN THE AD to go outside e-bay to do the transaction?

I have an "Buy It Now" Auction where buyers can purchase lots of 5. However, I had a potential buyer contact me to ask if he could buy just one. Is there a way to make this sale through eBay so eBay gets its seller fees but I don't have to create a one-off listing for this single item?

 

Thanks

I bid on a reserve item and my bid of $27.00 did not meet the reserve price but my bid is winning at $10.50 so the price to beat is $10.50.  if I have the winning bid at the end of the auction and the seller decides to sell the item to me, will it be at the $10.50 price or the $27.00 price?  If its the $27.00 price then why is the current bid only$10.50 instead of $27.00?  Thank you for your responses.  after reading comments, I have an additional question.  If I increase my bid above the reserve, say it was 30.00, will my bid still remain at 10.50 if that's the highest bid?  This sounds silly but I don't understand why the bid remains at $10.50.

Unable to pay with PayPal

So I picked up this cool N-1 Deck Jacket but it does not appear to have all tags.

 

Or does it?

 

So I am seeing the vertical farbric lines that I have read a little about to confirm it is Military issue right?

 

It has a round shaped EMAR Zipprer Pull.

 

It has a very interesting red accent on the fabric that lines the sleeves not sure what that is? I tought it was some sort of stain but it is not. It's throughout.

 

It does have buttons down the front that can be seen throght the flap when buttoned not buttoned in picture

 

Coat is in great condition!

 

Any information about this coat would be helpful. Thank you!

I just listed an item auction-style. I got a question from a person asking what price I would accept to end the bidding early.

 

Is it even possible to accept an immediate bid - i.e. before the 7-day auction period ends? If so, how is that done?

customers cant pay

I sold an item and the buyer did pay. Problem is I cannot print a shipping label due to an invalid mailing address. I sent the buyer 3 messages asking for a valid address but I have heard nothing. Its been over a week. So what do I do? If I cancel the transaction will I get a credit for the fees? Will it count against me? Thanks for the help.

Invalid Address

Hello, I usually on sell and ship domestically (U.S.) but someone from the UK really wanted to buy something from me, a pair of designer shoes. I insured the item and shipped them to her, however now customs wants her to pay tax and it's a lot of money, apparently almost $300. How could I have avoided this? Is it my fault? I did insure the item before I sent it because it was pricey. I told her she could just have it returned to sender and I'll refund her money. Was it my mistake or did she not take into account the customs fees?

Hi,

 

Has anyone ever had an issue with being restricted from selling because you are living at same address as a member who had been restricted from selling on eBay?  I am confused as to why I would be restricted from selling because a someone else can't sell.  Doesn't seem fair.  Do I have to move in order to sell?  Thank you.
