Hi there,

 

I'm a noob seller to eBay and have not yet listed any items yet (I'm still wanting to get all my settings perfect)  and given that I live in CA, I want to be sure I get all my tax tables set up. I've read the help files on this (http://pages.ebay.com/help/pay/checkout-tax-table.html#setting) but when I follow the instructions  I am unable to find the Account information and the tax table settings. Do I need to first list an item in order  to get to those features? Is the helpfile out of date? I'm losing my mind trying to figure this out.

 

AN UPDATE: Please don't suggest that I read the taxtable help pages that I already referenced above. I have read them, and followed them carefully. I am NOT able to see any option for "Buyer Preferences" when I go to My eBay > Account > Site Preferences (see screenshot).

screenshot.jpg

 

 

Also, I'm not asking about business licenses, sellers permit,  CA tax or anything like that. I have all that info straigntened out. My question is PURELY mechanical - how in the heck do I activate my tax tables? Or do I need to first post my first item to get the sales tax table options to show up?

 

Thanks for the help!

Good Morning! This blue glass bowl measures 8 1/2" wide and 3 3/4" tall. It has a vertical rib design, and painted flowers and leaves w/ gold trim. There is considerable wear to the gold trim and plenty of scratches on the foot, it has an "old" feel to it. The rim and base remind me of EAPG, but I haven't found anything researching that end. I've also looked at Bohemian glass, but the decoration looks more elaborate than this bowl. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks for any help!

Pottery, Glass & Porcelain discussion

I'm posting for two reasons... to see if anyone has experienced this and has any suggestions and... as a warning to sellers about the eBay cancellation software, so they can hopefully avoid the mess I'm in right now...

 

 

1. Buyer buys multiples of three items. Hasn't paid yet. Requests combined invoice. I send an invoice in the morning as soon as I see the request (buyer is three time zones ahead of me).

 

2. Later in the day I get an email from the buyer requesting a combined invoice (which I've already sent) and saying the buyer made a mistake and wants to change one of the orders (buyer ordered too much).

 

3. I'm happy to change the order but I can't change the invoice because the buyer's request to change quantity 6 to quantity 2 is more than the shipping charge, and eBay won't let us add a seller discount that's greater than the quoted shipping price.

 

4. Buyer is familiar with cancelling and re-ordering (buyer mentioned it in email), I uncombine the items and send a cancel for the one item and get the order ready to go while I wait for the cancel, the opportunity to reinvoice, and for buyer payment.

 

5. Buyer doesn't accept cancel. I had a feeling from the email that the order might be urgent, so I package it all except for the shipping label. It's now the weekend and I have some urgent business and won't be back until Monday night. Store has been on vacation since Thursday night.

 

6. Saturday morning, I have to go, still no acceptance of the cancellation and I'm perplexed, I'm about to send the buyer another email to make sure everything's okay and she's seen the cancellation request and as I'm doing that the order goes through (she pays), so I abort the email.

 

7. Since I can't re-do the invoice once it's paid, I'll have to do a partial refund through PayPal. I send an email that I'll refund Monday night when I'm back, then I ship.

 

8. Monday evening, I'm back, I check my email and it says there's a case/request in the resolution center for Item Not Received and I think, "Huh"?

INREmailPic.jpg

I look, there's only one case, for the item for this buyer that I shipped Saturday. Today is Monday. The listing has two-business-day handling and it was paid Saturday.

 

9. I click on the case and it's not an INR case, it's the pending cancellation. What's up with this?

 

•  I sent the cancellation request before the buyer paid. Buyer didn't accept but decided to pay. Now I discover why... even though the items were uncombined and I sent a cancellation for ONLY the one item, eBay sent cancellation for all the items combined. Buyer probably freaked since she didn't want to re-do the whole order, only the one that was a mistake. So, I can't blame buyer for paying for all of it, if she needs it quickly, Redoing the entire order would take too long (she would have to look up three listings again, work out the quantities again, it's tedious).

 

•  I assumed that the cancellation would "expire" since the buyer decided to pay rather than cancel. It didn't. Not only are all three purchases bundled together in the cancellation (even though they were uncombined when the cancel was sent), but the cancellation is still pending.

 

 

I have shipped this item. What happens if the buyer accepts the cancel? Will eBay automatically refund the entire purchase? Buyer purchased nine items in total (6 + 2 + 1).

 

 

Sorry, it's so long, but to summarize. Here are my questions...

 

1. I requested a cancel for one purchase out of three different multiple-quantity purchases and yet eBay sent cancels for all of them as though they were combined (they weren't). Does this always happen? If a buyer buys several items and wants to cancel one, does eBay always force the buyer to accept a cancellation for all of them? If so this is a real problem, because my buyers sometimes buy from 20 or 30 different listings and might want to change only ONE item and will not be willing to re-buy that many items.

 

2. Is it normal for eBay to send an email message that there's an INR case but then you go to the Resolution Center, there's only one case/request and it's for a Cancellation (not INR)? If so, the email notification is wrong.

 

3. Is it normal for a cancellation to be still pending if the buyer changes his/her mind and pays for the item after the cancel request is sent?

 

4. And this is the big one... now that the buyer paid and I shipped, what happens if the buyer accepts the cancel? Am I out the money for the entire 9 orders? Will eBay automatically refund all of it? I've shipped what the buyer requested.

 

 

Also... since I didn't know this was going to be such a mess, I promised the buyer a partial refund Monday night, but if I do that and then the buyer accepts the cancel, then again... I'm out the money. I want to keep my promise, but I'm worried about that pending cancel.

 

Has anyone had a situation like this? I'm not sure what to do. Is there a way to retract the cancel request? It's less than three days since it was sent.

Native American or South American?

Hi, Thank you all in advance for any help with this piece. 

We believe this is an early (19th. Century) Japanese Satsuma Vase. 

Could anyone help us confirm this? 

This piece is not marked anywhere. 

Also, does anyone know what this technique is called when there are applied pieces on a vase like this? 

This piece measures approximately 11  7/8" tall, 4" across the top, 3  1/2" across the bottom and 6  1/2" at the widest part in the middle. 

This also appears to have some Samurai swordsmen in it. 100_9065.jpg100_9071.jpg100_9072.jpg100_9075.jpg100_9076.jpg100_9080.jpg100_9083.jpg100_9085.jpg100_9086.jpg100_9089.jpg

Japanese Satsuma? 19th. Century?

Ever been researching items to determine whether or not to list here or elsewhere, and decide on a suitable price, then come across sellers that you just want to penguin smack?

 

Penguin Smack

 

I came across one about a half hour ago when I was deciding whether this microcassette transcriber I got at the Salvation Army today would be going here or Amazon.  Turns out it will be listed here for up to 2 listing cycles at least, with an asking price of $150, a little above the average for its condition.

 

Well, during my research, I saw one listing that sold that was a lot of 4 of these, pretty much same condition, at just a little over what my price is going to be.  I was like, "Dude?  Why in Great Spirit's name did you throw away a potential $450 there?  What posessed you to just decide to bundle them all together in one lot instead of parting them out with each one at the price you sold all four at?  It is not like it would have been a tremendously heavy amount of extra labor to deal with them individually, especially considering how much you would have pulled in."

 

Yeah yeah.  I know, his product, his choice how to handle them.  But still, surely there should be some common sense in play here when dealing with that kind of scratch.  And yes, I do feel justified in going all Kumi on him...

 

 

Anyway, that's my little amusing grumble.  My only other grumble is that I just now discovered this model and so didn't know about that lot of 4 in time to snap them up and flip myself.  Smiley Happy  Anyone else have similar facepalmers to share?

 

Now, back to processing todays finds for listing tomorrow...

Fine Jewelry, Gems & Precious Metals discussion

I picked this up at an estate sale quite some time ago, along with a couple of really neat Native American baskets. Was going to list it, then while doing some research online realized that I have no idea how to price it, and more importantly, whether or not it is old and actually Native American.

 

It has a decent patina, good work on the carving/design, and is certainly elk horn. When I search for Hupa or California elk-horn purse, very similar items appear on google etc. but I've noticed that a lot of them, most of them actually, have larger slots in them, presumably to fit the dentalium shells.  Other than that, this piece seems to fit the bill for being a purse.

 

This piece is about 4 1/2" long, 1 1/2" across, and has a very thin slice of horn/antler glued into one end. The string is just for a tag I attached to help keep track of when/where I got it.20150801_221806.jpg

These things are huge 3.5" and heavy. I think I see a small marking right under the loop there kinda looks like a bell and under that scratch looking mark I see 35 etched.

Any help with the maker or even an era to list these in would help bunches.

i bought two turquoise 9I think this is turquoise, I don't know, I am still trying to learn about it) rings at an outdoor antique show today.  This is one, and I have now clue about the "hallmark" in it.  I believe it is Navajo because of the constructions.  The gold overlay is rosy in color....it is stamped "sterling" inside and was tested as such.  Please give me your opinions on it- and maybe the stone is glass?  I don't know.  Thanks.

Navajo? Turquoise? ring hallmark help- TIA

I got this from my friend along with the Isaac Maimon I asked about yesterday - they were both in the same storage unit he'd won at a auction. He owns a furniture store & bought the unit because of the beautiful, high end furniture that was in the unit. That same high end furniture is what made me agree to buy the Maimon piece even though I couldn't see the signature, and this piece.

This is another large piece, but not as big as the Maimon, and appears to be a pastel but I can't tell even with a magnifying glass.

It also appeared to not be signed until I saw what looks like initials (bottom photo).

 

Does anyone recognize the art or the initials - if that is what they are? Is there a way to tell if it's a real pastel without removing it from the frame? If not I will open the back enough to feel it; I think it's worth the gamble just because of the type of home it came out of.

 

I appreciate any help if it's possible.

PASTEL OR PRINT? INITIALS FOR SIGNATURE?

 I have always assumed it to be faux turquoise and a silver plated alloy. No markings.  Before I list it, is there any chance it might be more than I think?  Maybe an older piece?  I am and I've had it for a while now. Thank you for taking time to share your wisdom!

On June 09, 2015 I won the following auction for an Agilent 33250A waveform generator

The seller accepts paypal and the purchase is claimed to be covered by the ebay/paypal buyer protection program.
Everyone should be able to see the BIG BOLD CLAIM: “ebay MONEY BACK GUARANTEE - Get the item you ordered or get your money back. Covers your purchase price and original shipping”.
So far so good. On 11 June, 2015 I send the payment and on 16.06.2015 the seller marks the item as shipped providing the DHL tracking number (961101085832).
To be clear I paid 22EUR for a DHL Paket International, which covers transport loss or damage up to 500EUR and typically delivers in my country in no more than four working days.
As I know this shipping service and I’m used to see the parcels moving quickly within the DHL network you will probably understand my surprise for not seeing any progress at all in the tracking system during the following week.

I don’t want to bore you with all the details so I’ll go straight to the point.
I asked the seller for an explanation many and many times and all I was able to get was a request to be patient and wait more time.
On July 2nd, tired of waiting, I filed a paypal dispute which was then escalated to a claim when DHL told me that they had no track of the parcel.
At this point, many of you will probably guess the outcome of the deep and careful paypal investigation. here it is, Paypal decided in favor of the seller and the claim was closed without any refund. What you won’t probably guess is the explanation given for such a resolution. Well, this is what popped up in my mailbox a few hours ago:

“Your seller has provided shipment tracking information in response to your claim.
We used the shipping company's online tracking service and found that it confirms delivery of the merchandise.
As a result, this case has been closed. We're happy we were able to help you resolve this issue.


Delivery of merchandise. Did you read that?

Now please go the DHL tracking page and tell me if you see anything about delivery.
http://nolp.dhl.de/nextt-online-public/set_identcodes.do?lang=en&idc=961101085832



The parcel is stuck on “The shipment has been posted by the sender at the retail outlet” since June 16.
Basically, it never left the DHL store.
How can they have a proof of delivery?
It’s clearly an error. There’s no other explanation.
That’s what I thought while reading the notification, but then I decided to call paypal and they managed to surprise me even further.

After waiting 10 minutes at the phone for a further investigation the answer was that they decided in favor of the seller because she was able to provide proof of shipment to my exact address.

And the conversation ended somehow…

How is all this even possible? Can they really do this?
Can PayPal lie about the proof of delivery and refuse to refund a frauded buyer while the whole web is filled with their claims regarding the protection program and the money-back guarantee?

I'm hoping someone will recognize the mark on these matte goldtone earrings.
I have looked in all the usual places but so far no luck.
It looks like 'PR------ES' and a copyright symbol, not sure if there's another word under that, I don't think there is but the middle of the mark is too faint to read.
Look familiar to anyone ?

Would this be considered "modernist or abstract" in design??

What do you think the center part with the profile looking picture is made from it's looks as though it is flaking or "peeling" away ?

The only mark I could find was a tiny letter on a solder part which looks like an "M" or an "E". Any help is much appreciated TIA Smiley Happy

how can a case of unpaid item be opened against me when I tried everything.  I am enclosing one of the messages that I sent to Ryans_games and one by ebay customer service sent to him for problem in paying by credit card since there was something wrong with merchant id.  After that I requested through ebay toryans-games to cancel the order.

 

I did everything that I was supposed to do.  The emails are below.

Dear ryans_games,

Hi There

Every time I pay by credit card I am getting error message. This happened 3times before as well and today two times. I don't know how I can pay since you don't have paypal account. I am more comfortable paying through paypal.

What do I need to do?

unpaid item case

I haven't been able as of yet to determine who made these beautiful goblets.  Each measures 6.25" in height, and I know I've seen this pattern before, but I can't find it in my pressed glass book anywhere.  Any help would be appreciated.

I am trying to find out everything I can about this ring..... to start, do you think this is genuine turquoise?  The ring is marked sterling with gold overlay on the front in a rosy color.....I have been researching mines and am trying to determine what mine this could be from.  Thank you for any help!

Picked this LARGE jar or jug up Saturday at a local sale, do you all think it could possibly be American Southern redware or is it European?

 

It's partially glazed and splashed with what appears to be a greenish-brown alkaline-type glaze at top and to the interior, the rest is unglazed, but dressed in a very weathered white slip. The shoulders have an incised sine wave between two bands going all the way round.

 

Can you all help determine the possible age and origin?

 

Thank you!

American Southern Redware or European?

Gosh, I haven't asked for help in a year or more, and now I've asked two questions in one weekend!  Thanks in advance for taking the time to help.  I don't do that much glass but scored at a sweet sale of an old lady's estate.  I have a glass beverage pitcher, esimating it's 64 oz, the pattern looks distinct to me, but I've spent a large part of the day looking for it and have come up empty handed.  Any help would be much appreciated!

Busy day! This one has me puzzled. They mystery is trying to date and describe it. What's unusual is that some are crystal/glass and others plastic/lucite. 

 

The crystal/glass ones are all the AB and orange AB "round" beads. The plastic ones are the clear with foil and the oval shaped ones. 

 

The earrings are plastic/lucite. I need a nudge in the correct direction. Totally stuck here. It's also much heavier than it looks.IMG_7052.JPGIMG_7053.JPGIMG_7054.JPGIMG_7055.JPG

Payments question

Tons of brass buddha on eBay, issue is I can't find one just like it. 

 

It's thick brass, but hollow inside, filled with something like concrete to give it weight. I'm guessing its from the 60's. It was in an old estate.

 

Looks to be holding something, but what?

 

What is it worth? I'm guessing around $10.

 

Looks like it was cold when his sculpture was taken, lol.

Help with this Buddhist piece.

Since Thursday, I have had problems listing a new product on eBay, with the site asking me to "select or create a shipping policy." And in the Paypal policy dropbbox, there is also a bunch of gobbledygook. I have cleaned my cache and cookies several times since then, and this is still the same result.

Hi, I'd appreciate any information about this magazine.  I found it at a Book Fair and can't read Japanese.  It's copyright 1993 in English on the back, and I recognize the Blue Swat and Super Sentai Mighty Morphin' cards and those were about that same time.  Is this considered collectible or just an interesting piece?IMG_0094.JPGFullSizeRender.jpg

Hi, 

 

I had an auction going that ended yesterday and I am having some trouble with the buyer. I included free shipping as one of the stipulations of the auction and clearly stated the item ships within the US only. Not only does the buyer live in England but now they want me to ship the item to Nigeria!  I have included the chain of events below.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

1. The auction was for a PS4 console, a PS4 controller, and one game, and ended yesterday with a winning bid of 420.00

 

 

 

2. I soon after received a message from the buyer asking for a money request from Paypal.

 

 

 

 3. I then sent the buyer a money request from Paypal which included the shipping costs to have the item sent to England. The total came to 499.85.

 

 

 

4.The buyer did not respond to either request directly. Instead I received the messages below.

 

 

PayPal 

 sent you $520.00USD
Transaction ID: C528L006Q999T5350

 

Just thought you'd like to know sent you $520.00USD

Any help would be great!

Every now and again I come accross beautiful pieces like these, with no makers marks, no indication as to what designer made it. What do I do with them? These look and feel as nice as any other designer brand from the same era, but aren't marked. Very frustrating... What do you do with these?

Too stinkin' hot Eye Candy Wednesday

I acquired this beautiful art glass piece the other day, and my thinking is that it is Murano because I believe I have seen the base done like this before from them.  Also, would this be considered a vase or compote or could it be either one?  How do I describe the ruffled part of the vase exactly?  It's not cased glass--it's a dark plum color with very dark plum edging, and it measures approximately 5" in height,  Help would be greatly appreciated.

Murano? Art Glass ID Help

I am just too uneducated about how these studio glass pieces are actually made.  I acquired this beauty the other day, and I would like for someone to explain to me the process used to create this piece.  Obviously part of it is apparently from a mold, but how do they get the stem twisted like that?  Is that done while the glass is still hot, and they just shape it at that point to get the design or is the stem added separately?  Also, what is the applied glass called that is around the edges referred to?  I believe the top knob or handle is probably applied separately, twisted, and then cut off.  I would have a field day watching someone actually make this piece from scratch!  Any discussion as to who might have made this and the process they used would be greatly appreciated.

Figure on Pin & Cufflink

I've been looking through everything I could find online to try to confirm that these pieces are really Gouda pottery and would appreciate any opinions or info.  Neither item has a date code that I could recognize either and I would like help with the ages as well.

#2 Bud Vase 5 1/2" high

I could not find anything listed on the gouda site or elsewhere that showed a 'Neckar' decor or a similar pattern

Thanks for looking.

Hello!  :-)

I've looked online and have seen similar/exact brooches, but most are from Japan.  It looks like it should be real but I am the farthest thing from an expert.  So I have come here.  Please note any green you see is actually the reflection of my green shirt.  :-)  Thank you in advance for any help.

Is this an authentic Chanel brooch?

I just got some malicious feedback and there seems to be no seller protection from ebay even though they agree the feedback is not true!  I have been selling on ebay for 14 years.  I worked very hard and bent over backwards to make my buyers happy and have 100% positive feedback.  I only had one neutral from a new buyer who I think hit the wrong button.  They left the same great comments for me as another they bought from and left them positives?  I have many repeat buyers and multiple purchase buyers.  I just received some malicious feedback and called ebay.  They agreed that her first two comments were not true.  Her last comment was "Wouldn't order from her"  They could tell from her messages to me that the size was correct to begin with but her dog outgrew the collar and that it was not poor quality from the hundreds of feedbacks stating the quality was excellent when I sold the same collar.  They said if she had put just the first two comments they would have removed the feedback but since she put her opinion of would not buy from her, they would not remove the feedback!!  Mine is not her first negative feedback for sellers. So much for any seller protection there.  I am trying out a store but put it on vacation.  I will be on vacation but this has left a bad taste in my mouth for ebay.  The messages from this person were sent to me a month after her order and I have a 14 day return policy.  I guess just venting since there is not much I can do with no seller protection that I see.  I am not sure I want to continue with a store and take this kind of abuse though.

Purchased a golf shaft for my driver. Seller listed it at 44.5" long, but it was actually 43.5" so it was too short for me.  I notified seller immediately that there was a discrepency in the listing and did not receive a reply.  After about 36 hours, I simply started a return thru eBay.  Seller accepted the return and I was issued a return shipping label.  Seller received item and refunded my payment.

 

Here's my issue - the seller never replied to me directly.  I did not recieve any sort of "Sorry, my mistake" or "That was an accident, I'll get the return started right away."  This is not a power seller and he already has one or two neutral and negs.  I'm considering leaving a neutral like "Item wasn't as described and seller didn't communicate" or something like that.  Just curious what you would do.  TIA!

Hi, is there a glitch in the system right now? When I list, get to my continue button, it flips me back to the front page with a red block and exclaimation point saying '500 FREE LISTINGS ' basically.  This usually is in an informational block done in blue, and there is nothing that needs to be done.  I will have to think this is a glitch, is anyone else experiencing this problem?Photo related, it's a screen cap of what i'm experiencing.

GLITCH IN EBAY SYSTEM RIGHT NOW?

I just placed a bid on a small item from china. what should I expect as far as customs/taxes? I know I am taking a chance on something getting lost or being difficult to return.  But, I am not sure if it will be hard or expensive to receive..any thoughts/info to reassure me? I hope this works okay because I found another item which is a little more that I would like to purchase, but I am afraid to bid since I have a fear of the unknown!.

customs/taxes on stuff from china

Sold brand new Jordan shoes via BIN. Buyer has numerous problems completing checkout. Numerous Communication between buyer and I t(in excess of 70 messages) fix payment problem,when buyer mentions that he has the exact same item already in hand. Payment goes through item is received and immediately refund is requested stating the shoes are worn despite the picture he posted is of a new shoe. I know this guy is trying to steal my shoes and send back used worn shoes. I have already rejected the request for refund. Now guy is sending threatening messages. What else can I do?

Scammer wants a refund

An idea.

 

Every time an auction receives a bid in the last 30 seconds that auction should be extended by 1 minute so anyone / everyone wanting to bid on the item gets a fair chance of winning.

 

This would mean higher selling prices for sellers, bigger seller fees for ebay and no hard feelings if you get sniped.

 

No-one looses.

 

Is there any reason why eBay doesn’t introduce this to their auctions?

Solving the sniping problem

Beginning in 2014, I have been having problems with vendors occasionally selling items postage paid but it arriving with postage due. The problem according to the post office is the vendors either not paying attention to weight limits or else are using inappropriate packaging. It is apparently so common in occurrence that USPS employees suggest it is a deliberate skimming practice but I suspect it is probably just involving a simple misunderstanding of the limits?

In all of the previous cases the vendors rapidly repaid me for the overcharge. The most recent one however will not respond to me at all despite a few days of very polite contact attempts.

My only two options provided by EBay seem to be either requesting a refund or else giving a vendor a bad rating. Another option would of course be ignoring it and accepting the overcharge.  A better option would be really nice.

This is obviously an increasingly common issue (based on similar posts) so perhaps EBAy can add a category so that resolution only requires excess or incorrect postage charges be addressed and reimbursed? Another helpful element might be giving vendors more complete and clear details about how to avoid this from occurring. I have no idea how to suggest either idea to EBay though, hence this post for hopeful discussion.

"Free shipping" that arrives postage due

The fees box is telling me I've selected Gallery Plus. Which I didn't and can't figure out how to get out of it - what do I need to do?

Gallery Plus

We are on day 6 of a 7 day auction on this item: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291526024332?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649  This is the item title:

1884 Marquess of Lansdowne Bronze Medal~Clowery-104~51 mm~Original Surfaces~WYON

 

It is listed in two categories.  I can't get it to come up in either.

 

It has bids, but is not showing up for me either on a keyword search OR in the category listings themselves.  I first started looking for it after wondering why it wasn't getting more clicks yesterday afternoon - 24 hours with no results.  Not sure how the bidders found it at all...

 

 

Can someone check to see if the problem is in my browser or with ebay?  It is at about half the collector value at present.
