I bought something on eBay and when leaving feedback, in addition to the usual DSR ratings, it asked quite prominently:


Did the item arrive on or before Monday, May 11, 2015? Estimated Delivery Date: May 11___Yes  ___ No


I did not select yes or no because I did not remember when I received it. Moreover, I was NOT going to answer the question anyway since I am a repeat buyer from that seller (5 X) and I did not want to ding him in some way even if I did not receive the item by May 11, 2015.

My questions as a seller:


- What is this?


- What is eBay's MOTIVE with this question? (Seems redundant to me, why ask when that's a DSR).


- If one selects "no" does that then go to a page where eBay dings the seller in some manner?


- If this is another way to ding sellers, does anyone know in what manner eBay slaps sellers if the buyer says "No" on arrival time?


- In the past as we all know, when shipping on time (within same day or one day after payment), the ability to DSR is shaded out because a seller shipping on time. That's fine, I have lived with that (I ship same or next day.) But, is this now dinging sellers for delay by the shipping service?


- If it is a method of dinging sellers, is anyone privy to eBay's LOGIC for blaming sellers for USPS or UPS delays, in effect holding sellers liable for third party's conduct, here USPS or UPS, for example.


Thanks for any comments. (Yes, I looked around here for an answer on this.)

Sending an invoice to a buyer

Hello Folks,

I acquired this punch bowl several days ago and I can't figure out the pattern name or maker.  It measures about 14 1/2" in diameter and stands approximately 7" tall.  It has a panelled design with a scalloped rim.  It was likely made to sit on a stand and has a base approximately 5 7/8" wide.

When I purchased the bowl, the previous owner said it was made by Heisey.  The bowl came with a large lot of Heisey Queen Ann (#1509) punch cups.  The cups are marked with the Heisey diamond logo, however, there are no manufacturer marks on the punch bowl.  I suspect her attribution of the bowl to Heisey was based on the marked cups (which do not match the bowl).

The punch bowl is quite heavy and the glass has bubbles and a few straw marks.  It appears to be old glass, possibly EAPG.  Any ideas on the pattern name and/or manufacturer?  Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

Cothing sellers.... What is this?

Recently i won the Bid on below item;

Dell XPS 12 Convertible Ultrabook i7-3667U 2.0GHz 8GB 256GB SSD 1080p(1920x1080)


But reseller has canceled the order by giving the reason that i have issue with my address and i am surprised that ebay do not have any resolution and such topic in their resolution center. I am really disappointed because this is totally unfair. I won the Bid and seller canceled the order without communicating with me on this matter.




I want to give negative feedback to this seller.

Seller Canceled the order on invalid reason

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

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

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

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

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


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

Here's the picture:


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


Am I correct?

It cost a lot to list here ten years ago.


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

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

Help with this pendant please

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

How many people have had the experience of a bait and switch wit an Italian company selling Darious vertical wind turbines? I won a bid on eBay for a complete wind turbine and was sent the blades and aluminum struts missing the actual generator which makes the wind turbine work. I sent photos to the company of the item I bid on and the Item I received and they told me that I had purchase something totally different. My correspondence with the company went back and fourth. When I finally tried to get eBay to help me they refused to do anything about my dispute. I now am the proud Owner of a wind turbine that doesn't produce energy. Has anyone else had this problem? Below is what I was suposed to have purchased. The second photo is what I received.

I have had this piece for a while, and I can't really settle on what it is.  I am guessing it is some sort of pendant.  It has prong set purple stones.  It measures 1 2/3" long and it is heavy.  It has two marks on the back-one on each side.  I can make out 925 on one side, (it does test out as sterling silver) and three other marks on the other side.


Hoping someone out there recognizes this piece and can tell me what it is and who made it.


Thank you in advance for your help and advice!

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

PAWSibilities Animal Rescue Inc.Mar-09-15$0.00Waived Refund Approved Date 2015-03-18 Amount Refunded $300.00



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

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


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


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

carnival glass vases continued...

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


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


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

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


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

What did I buy?  When I picked it up I was thinking vintage California piece.  I cannot find anything like it.  Dish diameter 3.5". about 3.25" high.  There may be an "M" marked on bottom.  Any ideas?

I don't know how to tell the difference (the wife said quartz).  Three different sets in a box lot.  Quite heavy for their size (the largest measure 6.5" tall and weigh nearly 3 pounds per piece).  Light green in color, minimal (but some) veining.  Is there an easy way to id the material?DSCN9742.JPGDSCN9740.JPG

  I have little experience with glass items and hope I can receive some help identifying a handfull of items.

Other than it being a pale pink 3 footed cake plate is there anything else that would be helpful in describing it for listing? I don't know if it has a specific name and age since it is unmarked.

Thank you!Taken with picture box 006.JPGTaken with picture box 012.JPG

Cake plate?

My husband found this item at a yard sale.It had a decorative ribbon on the top piece. It appears to be some type of funnel. The way the hook handle on the right side is made to fit in it comes out if held or hung using it,but when turned around it does not fit in. Any idea what it is and it's age?

Thank you!

How to bid or buy

This vase is 10 1/4 inches in height.  It has a textured, white iridescent finish applied to the outside.  Kind of feels gritty like sandpaper.  There is a pontil scar on bottom and it is ground flat around the outside edge of the bottom.


The closest I could find were a few vases identified as Poschinger that were really close in shape but none finished like mine.  The only vases I could find with a similar finish were Murano vases with a Scavo or Corroso finish but I don't think the shape of mine is right for a Murano piece.


Any help with age, origin, maker or key descriptive words would be great.  Thanks!

 This looks like something that may have been painted at an artisans fair or something,  Or like they do at bush gardens with capodimonte, they will make something while you are there and pick up later and the artist signs it, and personalizes it,

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

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


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

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


The pictures are fuzzy because I used a scanner.

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

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

ID help Antique Spritzer Seltzer Bottle

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


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

I sold 1 pair of Barbie doll shoes for $5 bucks, less than a couple weeks ago and the buyer just opened a Return Request earlier today stating "doesn't match the listing." Her complaint is that the shoes are too big for Barbie so they must be for Ken and wants a refund (no mention of return). I've been a Barbie collector for years, I know they are for Barbie, made by Mattel in the 90's, and they have a "B" Barbie monogram on the sole of them. (There's other sellers on eBay with the same item listing them for Barbie as well). Of course they may fit "loose" but they are most certaintly for Barbie. I checked out this buyer's feedback left and she's very picky to a lot of other sellers as well. She buys lots of items for Barbie, I would assume she knows what is what.


I replied to the return request right away very nicely explaining why I think they are for Barbie, which dolls they may fit better, but in the end I offered her 50% partial refund ($3.75, her total was $7.50) and she can keep them. No response yet.


This is my very first return request/"item not as described".  ):  I don't care about the money. I just don't want a INAD defect something that isn't true at all. What should I do?


It's not fair that buyers can claim these things so easily.



Selling discussion

A buyer bid on my auction for a not-working for part only lot of two laptops. I checked the buyers feedback and he left a neg and recieved a refund from ebay for another seller who sold a similar item. I looked at that itemsauction and I can't see how he could have misrepresented it, it was an old noteboo that doesn't work sold for parts only and clearly stated so in the very brief description he had with very few detales other than that. Am I allowed to or justified in cancelling this buyers bid? It looks like that is the only neg he ever left and it's the only time he bought something for prts only. Everything else he purchases is new stuff. He also sells.


My inclination is to not cancel his bid unless he wins. I don't want to go through a return drama for this stuff.

Selling discussion

Hi.. I won the auction from the seller (seller with ZERO FEEDBACK) and I already paid.. But The seller told me he haven't received the money yet. I saw the status of my payment at paypal was still "UNCLAIMED". It said the seller is "UNREGISTERED" at paypal. I sent many messages to the seller but no reply at all. Only some messages were replied at the day I won the auction. It seems that the seller avoiding me and dishonest about everything he/she sell. I decided to cancel the payment and leave negative feedback to the seller.


Were this the right things to do? Is this kind of issue very common at ebay? I really dissapointed with the seller bacause I already won the auction and this item was for my bother's birthday. Thank you for respond my message.

Sales plummet.

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

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

Very grim indeed.

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

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

Getting Started question

I often list rings for sale and if they are sterling I check the box that they are "sizable".  I've had two people now ask me to size the ring to a certain size and they will buy it.....  Now, I assume I am just stating the ring can be sized, not that I am personally going to size it myself for them (which I can't do anyway).  Am I correct that "sizable" just means if someone buys it the ring can be sized - buy the BUYER?  If it implies I will do it for them, I need to remove that option.  Thanks ahead of time.  (It's not like I am selling anything anyway, but in the future if something does sell....lol)

Selling Phone and Afraid

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


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


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


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


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

My sales and the number of views has dropped significantly in the last monthor so. I was only selling 2 or 3 a week but it seemed steady. Now, I've only sold one in the last 3 weeks. And my page views are half of what they had been.


I've only been doing this a few months, so I haven't been here long enough to know if this is common. I've seen a number of posts in the forums about the same topic- slow sales- but I don't have the experience to know if there are more people than usual saying this.


Some of the posts suggest that ebay made some changes that place more emphasis on driving traffic to the really big sellers. Does anyone know if this has any validity?


And/or does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get more views and, hopefully, more sales? I have tried or am currently trying the basic tips and advice to sellers and am open to any words of wisdom from seasoned sellers.


Thank you for your time.
