20150528_115413.jpg20150528_115137.jpg20150528_115519.jpgHello All,


I found this two tone louis vuitton purse and clutch combo at the local flea market, and after much research I have concluded that it is authentic. unfortunatley, I cannot find any other bags like it to compare it too.


reasons i believe its authentic:


  1.  The links on the handle are the correct shape (D shaped)
  2. pattern is even and consistant throughout the bag
  3. Font seems authentic IMO
  4. Matching two tone leather color
  5. looks very well made maybe even vintage.

one of the handles is broken. if is authentic would it be worth it to fix?

Please help id this etched glass plate that measures 10 1/2" diameter with a cut bottom. Thank you in advance.P1012121.JPGP1012123.JPGP1012122.JPGP1012120.JPG

Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

I've been researching some stems for a friend and finally found it on the R site in clear, pink and green as UNK 509. The stem I want to ID has the identical etch and gold trim on the rim, also identical bowl. However, the one I'm searching for is yellow, and has a stem similar to UNK 509 but with a lady leg. Does anyone have a lead? I considered Lancaster/Standard because of the yellow, and Bryce because they made the same stem, but no luck. 


Using the drawing because it's MUCH easier to see the etch than with my photography. Interestingly, it's a 2-part etch that can't be properly seen  by looking at one image of a wine glass. If anyone thinks it would help, I'll post a photo of the rest of the etch. TIA for your gracious help, as always!

Please help id this pattern glass lamp shade that measures 4 7/16" tall, 2 7/8" across the rim, and has 1 1/8" diameter hole in the bottom. The color compares to other eapg pieces I have. The sides are about 1/4" thick while the bottom is about 3/8" thick with a cut bottom and weighs 14.4 ounces. Is this a newer candle shade or is it any early lamp shade? If it is a lamp shade can anyone tell me what the lamp would look like. Thank you in advance.P1012154.JPGP1012152.JPGP1012153.JPGe.

I'm trying to get to Top Rated status and I try to mail items the next day. I have the following on my seller dashboard and don't understand why this percentage is not correct. Any help from someone?

Tracking uploaded and validated by carrier
The percentage of your transactions that had tracking info uploaded in My eBay and was then validated by the shipping carrier.
close tool tip
(9 out of 16 transactions)
I purchase my postage thru ebay and then take to the local post office and watch them while they scan it in the system. Why is this validated by carrier so low? what might I be doing wrong?
Thank you

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?

The order details show that the "order was placed on" and "payment method-PayPal" but there is no record of it being paid. In addition, the buyer is instruction to make the package smaller to save "transmission fees" but is telling me to make sure there is enough padding to protect the item?

Why, when there is no record of an e-check or any other form of payment, would there be an "order placed on" or a "payment method" statement?

Am I being scammed by buyer?

And here we go again,
This is from a different account,  not the same as my last post.
Ebay actively promotes theft from it's sellers.  they ask buyers to find problems with sales when there aren't any,  and then either give the customer free product, or make the sellers pay for return labels that are never used,  and then they just steal the money back from the sellers accounts anyways.

Issue a refund if the item has been delivered



XXXX started a return on Apr 24, 2015 for # XXXXXXXXXXXX,  New Complete XXXX Set. If you've received it, please inspect it and issue a refund.

Issue refund
The customer had no intention of ever returning the item,  they just do this because eBay tells them they can get anything for free if they just ask eBay.
But,  we have to keep paying for these unused return labels for nothing,  and then if eBay just feels like it,  they steal all the money from the sale, and give it back to the buyer.
Come on,  how many times do you have to steal from us?  with the new return policy,  it's two times on every sale.  it's just ridiculous.

Selling discussion

Just curious. Am I missing something? Today is May 29, 2015, how could something have ended on a date that is yet to occur? This particular seller has a bunch of sold items that show they ended in various June, 2015 dates. I guess ebay has figured out time travel now!

How is this Possible!?

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 ?






Jewelry & Gemstones Board Group

I have NO IDEA what this is.  Three separate pieces of what I was told a while back MIGHT be jade flower decorations of some sort.  Can anyone give me any guidance based on these photos?  Thanks in advance!

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%.

Would you call this brooch a Maltese cross?

Does anyone have any insight into this ring, stamped Guerre 14 16? I understand French military medals from WW1 may be marked 14 16, but I've so far been unable to find a ring like this. The metal looks like nickel. 

Any thoughts on this are appreciated!

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!

Dear hkc_15,

I have purchased the above item but as I have mentioned in my feedback, I just take out to use last week only.
I have inserted in my mobile phone last week & it was visible in setting.
But after 4 to 5 days, it was dismounted automatically & on inserting several times, mobile phone doesn't show it i.e. not reading.
I also checked on laptop in which it is reading with USB drive adapter but not reading in memory card adapter I have received with this card.
I again checked with other memory card in my phone & it is working fine with my phone.
As I have not used it since the purchase till the last week, I contact you for the help you can do to replace it.
Thanks in anticipation.,

Dear l_kath3,

No problem- just please close the automated ebay case when it opens. It usually opens 2 days after an auction ends if no payment is noted. But you should just be able to note it and just close it once it does open.

Hope you found the item you were looking for though! Have a great day!

Hi!  The tracking number said delivered, but it was delivered in the wrong city. It was delivered in San Antonio which was the origin of the purse.  I think this but took my money and had delivered to another address of theirs so they can have my money and then resale the purse.

Not sure if this is the appropriate place to post, so apologies in advance.

Seller and I resolved an issue by ourselves and would like to close a case in the Resolution Centre.

Been trying for a few days, but every time I try to click on the close case button, I just get this error page.
I think it's stressing the seller that this case is still open, but I don't even know how to contact eBay to fix this.

Would anyone have any insight or possibly be able to point me in the right direction?

Technical Issues discussion

I bought 4 mag wheels from a rookie older seller.(fgre46) He listed the item with $34 shipping USPS. To ship from ny to co will cost $100.


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 didnt received this item. After I contacted the seller he send me this message :

"As we did not shipped your item, More over, the item was deleted by ebay, That is why it is not allowing us to refund, As ebay has to refund, Moreover we are new to this type of case. It is as simple, when we have not received your payment, how can we refund, As ebay has received the payment, the refund will be made or already made by Ebay."

I don't have any intension to make a problem.
But there is something that I can't understand.

This is why my payment is being delayed.
I want to know why there is additional fee.
I just want to pay GBP 2801 only for item price and shipping fee GBP 50 (total GBP 2851)
What is additional GBP 2851 for ?
I added the photo.
You can see the additional fee is included on the bottom.
Also the total cost is GBP 5702 on the right side.
I need some explaination for this.

If this problem is solved, I'll pay right away.

I asked seller about this problem, but he said I have to contact the ebay and solve it.

Is this promblem can be solved by buyer?

I think the seller doesn't consider the situation and just open a case.

I feel really unsatisfied with this situation.

I still want to buy this item.

The seller also want the total cost GBP 2851.

If you make an corretion for total cost (GBP 2851), I'll pay immediately.

So, I have been wondering my item Hypnotoxic Laser (Pokemon card) has only had 1 view (which is mine) for the past 3 days. So, my first thought, maybe someone has a lower price than mine. I searched the card, put lowest price as my sort method...and it's not on the list!         View pictures:

eBay is hiding one of my listings..why?

This is an 18k yellow gold ring. Stamped Ugem 18KP. Does the P in KP stand for Plumb? It has four 0.20 CTW in marquis cut emeralds and four 0.04 CTW in round diamonds as stated by jeweler. The numbers E021 and D008 is what baffles me??? Anyone know?? Could they possibly be the CTW for each gem??

Hello jewelry board, I need help identifying what stone is used in this necklace. I was told it was a home made type necklace that used "all real stones". I'm not familiar with a natural stone that has that sort of iridescence effect on it. Is this some type of brown quartz with a treatment? The clasp is 14K, but as a home made piece I don't think it does much help.

Can anyone help me identify this small plaque?  It is just 4" x 2" and has no markings on it at all.  The back is finished and doesn't look like it was glued to anything.  I looks like it is hand-carved, and the shield below the eagle looks like it is inlaid with abalone shell, but it is very yellow.  This belonged to my Grandfather, and he passed away in the 1950's, so it would be quite old.  He was a Mason - could this be something to do with the Mason's?  If anyone could tell me what the inlay might be and what the plaque might have been for, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thx.eagle 2.JPG

Can anyone autheticate this Coach?

I always give a buyer 3-4 days to pay, then, I send an invoice with a friendly reminder..."you may have forgotten about this."




I sent an invoice on the 27th...today, I get an email from eBay stating that they'd sent a payment reminder to that same buyer, on the 26th! WHAT?!


I checked the time I'd sent the invoice, thinking maybe I'd sent it late enough to where it would still be the 26th eBay time & something else has changed, other than receiving my copy of the invoice I'd sent. Nope!


The buyer had paid before I got eBay's email! Wonder if the buyer feels harrassed? I would!


Has anyone else gotten an email like this? This is the first I've gotten.


In eBay's email to me, titled Quick Sales Status, they state:

We're following up on your recent sale
On May 26, 2015, we sent a reminder to ******* to post payment for the item they purchased from you.

You can ship the item as soon as they pay. If you’re still waiting for payment, there are options to help complete your sale.


They go on with:Here are two options that can help complete your sale.

Send a message to your buyer 
Why send a message?
There are many reasons a buyer may not pay right away. Reach out to them in a polite and friendly way to see if they have any questions or need help—a positive seller rating may be a result.
Use eBay Messages.
If you decide to message your buyer, be sure to use eBay Messages. It's the best way for you, your buyer, and eBay to track conversations about the transaction.
Open an unpaid item case 
If you can't work things out directly with the buyer or didn't receive a response, you can open an unpaid item case in the Resolution Center.

When can I open the case?
You may open a case between two and 32 days from the date the buyer purchased your item. The buyer will have four days to send payment. After the four days have passed, you can close the case and relist your item.


What happens when I close the unpaid item case without a payment from the buyer?
When you close the case within 36 days after the listing ended, you'll receive a credit for the final value fee. The buyer will not be able to leave feedback for the transaction and the case will be recorded on the buyer's account.
Be sure to close your case.
You must manually close the unpaid item case within 36 days after the listing ended to receive a credit for the final value fee. If you do not close the case, it will automatically close, you will not receive a credit for the final value fee, and the unpaid item won't be recorded on the buyer's account.

I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction on a couple Lladro figurines I recently acquired.  The first is Donkey in Love, however the marked is hand scratched into the base and the petal on his hoof reads Si and not No like the others I have seen.




The second is of a girl sitting with braids and a hat.  The figurine is unfinished and each piece is hand made and attached (the hat is glued).  The bottom markings are also scratched into the porcelain.  I have not been able to identify the name of this piece.




Any thoughts or information on the the figurines would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for looking.

This painting looks pretty old.  Canvas is a darker toned material weave. Some signs of crackle in oil paint from age I'm guessing. Does Anyone know the artist?  It is hard to make out the signature, it has a seasoned artistic signature style very exact.  It is a nicely done piece.

Went to a sale this am before dawn, jewelry & vintage clothing advertised. Sweet old couple. Some nice rhinestones (a Schreiner pin/earring set, etc) but this pendant really had my interest - odd, since this is not my thing. Lady had no idea how much to ask, so I took pics & told her I'd ask here. Supposed to go back after 3 to see the clothing & more jewelry.....would like to buy this piece if we can determine a fair price.


Really looks like sterling but not marked as such, just the stamped design shown below. Surely turquoise, & perhaps bear claw? Probably a bit over 2" in length; maybe 1.5" wide. Any idea of the maker or age? Any other suggestions welcome.

I have a teapot, oddly i havent found many of this tall version either, most of them are slightly more squat like in the Christina example.


But my tall teapot, has the 'Christina' pattern mark on the bottom when it is clearly the 'Martinique' pattern


This is an example of the 'Christina' pattern, an orange flame style. On the more squat teapot, this picture i got from the internet.



This is my teapot. Taller and clearly (I thnk) the 'Martinique' pattern.

Hi.  I was hoping someone could help me identify the (pattern?) name of the flatware below.  Both are plain with no design.  I looked through ebay listings and the net but no luck.  They're probably old and discontinued and figured one of you experts could tell me for sure.


I also have these strange things with an ornate design and have no idea what they are used for.  I thought maybe they were good for digging out snails but couldn't find any on the net to confirm.  Personally, they remind me of a tool that dentists use and now my teeth hurt. lol


If you can help it will be much appreciate.  TIA.


Here they are:


The marking just says IMPERIAL STAINLESS






No stamps/markings so your guess is as good as mine.  Snails????

O.K. so I've been messing around with this braclet for a couple of weeks.

When I first picked it up I thought these were bakelite, much "weightier" than plastic or amber.

 So I heated up some water and put the beads in it-I'm getting faint funky smell, not the strong smell I associate with bakelite (yes I am a smoker, so I know that does diminish my sense of smell.)

  So then I tried 409, I'm getting a reddish-brown result, not the standard brownish -yellow nicotine coloring.

They "sound" like bakelite.

So whatcha think cherry bakelite, fakelite or something else?

Thanks to everyone who looks!

Also, what about turning the fedex boxes inside out. I never knew this was a "crime", but now I've read the PO is checking sizes on wrapped boxes? Is this true?

Selling discussion

Sorry if it posts twice


I am sure you can find my Neutral.  I really don't understand this person. She bought the wrong size.  There is nothing complicated there.  Never contacted me, of course.    


The email she is referring to said "Thank you for buying an Extender! Sometimes Buyers find they missed a measurement, missed some info or had trouble seeing details on a mobile device. Hopefully you had no problems determining what you needed. I want you to know I am here to help if it is not working for you, for whatever reason.  If it is not the right size for your item you can exchange or return at no additional cost to you." 


There is complete dimensional info for the extender provided in the description, detailed instructions on how to measure & a chart that helps choose from matching extenders available. There is a Return Policy for a full refund.  Is there anything you guys think I should add so people can measure properly?


I just started selling here again after a 12 month break to deal with sick parents and so much has changed.   I sell so few things now because I have no history (according to eBay because of the break) and my listings don't get seen because of it - and now this one neutral is probably going to end me - unless I don't understand the new Defect system?  How many defects do you get for a neutral and the dings she did on the stars?


Any help with a Feedback Reply would be appreciated, I am kind of shaky. I forgot about how vindictive people can be.  Last but not least, where is the Add buyer to Blocked Buyer List  link now a days?

I've bought items that the seller never shipped, opened cases and asked for the product, not a refund. I've always gotten a refund and I guess this lets the seller off the hook with ebay.  Most recently, the seller relisted the book I bought twice and never responded to emails.  I opened a case, asked for the product and got a refund, instead. Does ebay care?  Apparently not.

Is This An Ebay NoNo?

Hi there,


I am posting for my friend because he is way too upset to think rationally so I wanted an answer from the community. My friend posted an auction for a $40 trading card and it was picked up within a day or two. Instead of using eBay's shipping (I don't know why he neglected, but he did, being a new seller and all), he sent the card via standard USPS envelope and postage stamp, no different than mailing a birthday card.


Now, you can see where this could be bad for him and unfortunately, it went south. He posted that he shipped the product but provided no tracking number to the buyer. The buyer, within a few days, disputed my friend claiming that he did not ship the item and/or never received it and now wants a refund. The buyer went through the avenues and from my understanding, he won. My friend claims that USPS could take up to 2 weeks to send standard mail and it has only been about 7 or 8 days since he mailed the product.


So, Is my friend SOL in this case, even if the buyer receives it via standard mail in the next few days? Obviously since he was forced to give the refund, the buyer (scammer or otherwise) is effectively in the clear now, correct? If he gets the product, he does not even have to pay (unless he is a responsible person, correct?). I assume, based on previous readings, that since he chose NOT to get tracking on this shipment, he effectively screwed himself over, yea?


Anyways, thanks community. My friend is furious, I am more so curious if eBay has any safeguards on this sort of buying/selling in regards to standard USPS mail. I mean, it really sucks for him, $40 down the drain like that all because he didn't want to take the $2 charge for a tracking number.

Selling discussion

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.

Selling discussion

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.



Selling 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've been an eBay seller off and on since the late 1990s and today had my first ever chargeback filed.  It was a rather pricey item for me- $349.99- and was shipped via FedEx on April 13th and received on April 17th.  The notation says it's an "Inquiry- Bank Return."  What does this mean?  I am a lurker on the boards so am familiar with buyers filing chargebacks when their buyer protection has run out, they've been denied buyer protection, or they have an uncooperative seller.  I've not heard boo from this buyer since the transaction occurred so I assumed all was well.  So far I have not been asked to provide any information for the claim.  What should I have ready, in case they do?

Bad seller



I am a new seller and just encountered a new buyer with zero feedback. The buyer paid but the payer and the receiver names do not match. However, the shipping address is confirmed. I don't know if this is a problem. Should I open a case on ebay?


Buying & Selling Basics question

May 28, 2015 6:41:56 AM PT

Payer and receiver do not match

I can't say that I blame the buyer either. I would be **bleep** if this happened to me.

The buyer says that my listing's shipping charge was fluctuating day to day. When it got below a certain point, she purchased the item.

She says when she paid for the item, she was charged a good bit more for the shipping than what was actually quoted on the listing.

I checked the listing to see if I had accidentally added a handling fee, but I didn't.

So she says she wants a refund, which I gave her with profuse apologies.

How can this happen? This buyer was really nice, but what if I got a buyer that really got **bleep** off at the excessive overage?

I was high bidder at $61.50 when the count went to " 0 " - Auction OVER.


Now my hgh bid was $63.75 supposedly 'HIDDEN" from ANYONE else seeing it.


HOW then did I get outbid at $64.75  actually one Second AFTER the auction was OVER ? ? ?


The counter SAID - " 0" seconds AND my high bid of $61.50 was STILL ON THE SCREEN when it ended ! ! ! ! ! ! !


The only way this could happen is if someone is using a program that reacts FASTER than eBay's program.



How else could this happen and is it OK with eBay? ? ?

Outbid at "0" seconds.

Long story short. Mistakenly shipped item to winning bidder before actually receiving payment. Bidder is now in possession of said item, but has refused to respond to my messages requesting payment. Even said I'd pay all return shipping costs if he can't pay the bid amount.  I've contacted ebay, but they were zero help. Basically just told me to file a claim with them.


Also, the buyer has a lot of negative feedback calling him a scammer that doesn't pay, but it's all marked as positive. How is that possible?

I recently combined a few items that one customer purchased in order to discount shipping.  It turns out that shipping was still cheaper than the discounted shipping cost.  I want to refund my customer the difference, how can I do this?  I have looked this up with no luck.  I was going to have the customer just send me his email address that is associated with his paypal so that I can just send him the money but, I guess ebay policy does not allow usage of personal emails within messages.  I would appreciate any help with this matter.

Hi I'm wondering if anyone can help me. 


I bought this guitar on Ebay and the listing said "Ships to Worldwide" (I'm in Europe). 


When I try to pay for the guitar I get this:


One or more of the items below can't be purchased because the seller has not specified shipping costs to the location selected

  • Change your address or remove the items to continue
  • You may also contact the seller for an exception

I've contacted the seller three times with no response. 


So basically, I have this unpaid item that I cannot pay for because I get no answer from the seller. 


Is there anything I can do?

I bought a muffler exhaust pipe on 4/18. Item was discribed as "New" but I found 3 holes. I contacted seller and asked about return and he sent me a return label. He received the item on 5/09, fixed holes and already re-listed on his page.


He keeps lying about refund such as: He refunded to wrong buyer so he needs to fix that first. He had some issues with his paypal account bc some buyer decided to use a stolen credit card to purchase over $200 worth of items from him and the funds have been pulled from his account sending it in a negative status... He first told me that he will refund by 5/14 0r 5/15, then change to 5/20, then today (5/29) by noon but nothing happend.


I tried to open a case but the problem is that I didn't request through ebay for "return item". Seller just sent me a shipping label through email ( I have tracking info with "order details"). Some one please help me. I cannot find a way I can contact resolution center with my issue I don't know what I can do.

Payments question

Purchased an item 5 days ago and have not heard from seller at all. No shipping details or transactions. I tried to make contact twice and no reply from the seller. What do I do now. I think I was scammed. Payment made thru paypal.

Shipping & Returns question

A buyer meant to leave positive feedback but accidentally left negative.  I contacted them and ended up sending a revision request.  They tried to revise, but got an error message.  I then called eBay and the rep said they would take care of it, but asked if I could also get a screenshot to help them figure out what the error was.  I got off the phone believing they would remove the feedback.  


I also contacted the customer and they were nice enough to send a screenshot.  After a few hours passed, I notice the feedback had not changed, so I decided to call back (and also let them know I had a screenshot).  The new person I talked to said they didn't know of any errors going on with eBay, so they couldn't remove or revise the feedback.  They said the BUYER would have to call in.  


This doesn't make much sense.  eBay implemented the defect system because they were afraid of sellers chasing away customers, yet they encourage me to bother one of my buyers to get a screenshot of the error, and then to have them call into customer support when eBay could remove the feedback themselves because they have proof that it was accidental and the buyer is getting an error message.


It just seems a little absurd to me.

Shipping fee differs

I bought a skirt on eBay, on the picture it looked fine. But when it arrived, the back of the skirt was damaged so badly, I would not be able to wear it.

I requested a return. The seller did not answer for 10 days, so I escalated the case to eBay. eBay refunded my money.

A few days later, I got a mad message from the seller, telling me that it is not legal to keep both the skirt and the money. He tells me to return the skirt and gives my his address.

The weird thing is, I only received the return address after receiving the refund.

Do I have to return the skirt or is the seller bluffing?

If I return the skirt then 1. I will have to pay the return shipping (which is quite a lot) and 2. the seller will just sell the skirt again and another person will have the same problem.


Thanks in advance

I'm in tears...

I purchased an item and paid full but the item wasn't shipped for a while. Then I contacted the seller to inform me the shipping info and I got a message as below.

It sounds like eBay's fault not noticing sold info to the seller. I just wonder if we all can avoid this incident opening my case.


I had received this message from the seller. Is this caused by eBay system?



The seller has responded to you and offered another solution to solve this issue.


Seller's message:

"Im so sorry about that I just got a notice about the item selling and I shipped it as soon as I saw the sold message and now I m noticing it sold a long time ago I am very sorry for the delay its on its way don t know how I just noticed it, it doesn t make sense Im on here everyday and I was pretty sure I took down the listing so this wouldn t happen and I always check my messages "

eBay's fault?

Are we allowed to sell items in a bundle in a single listing?  For example:  if I want to sell some books and dvds in one bundle (sold together), can I list this in a single listing?

How do I make up an invoice for a couple of items from my not sold list for a buyer at reduced postage and item charge?

Selling discussion

I've had this listing up here for a while http://www.ebay.com/itm/121597990637?ssPageName=STRK:MESOX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1559.l2649 . I'm selling a code for a game, and I describe that after someone buys it, I will send them the code in an email. Today, someone bought one of my codes, and as I googled how to send digital codes through Ebay, I discovered that apparently this is a big NO. So now, I don't know what to do. Do I cancel the sale? Do I email the guy telling him I have to send him the code through mail? I just don't want to get penalized by Ebay or Paypal.

I mostly have clothing that I would like to sell, but how can you start the auction at .99 and offer free shipping and make sure you are not losing money?  Do clothes sell very well,
