Could anyone help me identify this? I thought vintage mechanical pencil/lead holder because of the metal tip+4 slots but inside are teeny drill bits the size of sewing needles.

I've researched mechanism pencils, handheld drills, even went to a pencil blog+sent my pix+question only to receive an auto reply that they don't reply:/.

There are no markings other than made in the usa.

I was going to list as 'vintage unique mechanical leadholder pencil with needle like drill bits' but that doesn't sound correct.

I though it maybe a spiral pencil where the drill bits push the lead down but there are soo miniscule that it couldn't work that way.

I'm stumped?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

This shaft appears to be made of hardended steel and is just over 14" long. There two slots / keyed grooves on opposing sides of the piece. The other end has an attachment that looks a lot like a socket but its interior walls are smooth. The attachment is affixed to the shaft by two allen head bolts.

So here is the story.

I tried to sell my laptop. List it under fix price (buy it now) or best offer.

The buyer offer above my fix price and I accept it. He immeditely send this message to me :

I have paid. Is this your first time selling? eBay is holding the funds. When you provide a tracking number, and you put it in eBay, they will track the package and release the money before it gets to me. You HAVE to put the tracking number in eBay or they can't track it and release the funds. Understand?? Please ship express

- dif.us7
 
 
 

 

He included two screen shot photos, one indicate he paid, another with his address.

However, on my side, my ebay account, it says I am still awaiting for payment. AND "Buyer has not completed check out," and "Buyer has marked item as paid." See below:

ebay2.PNG

 

I have not received anything from either ebay or paypal regarding the payment. upon carefully I realize this might be scam so I call ebay and confirmed that HE DID NOT PAY.

Plus his account is brand new, meaning 0 feedback, signned up just before trying to buy my laptop.

I insist that I will not ship until he go through the payment process with ebay, and then he insisted he paid.

So what do I do then?

Need help with a strange mark on my pin.

Very pretty little brooch. Tested the stones, they are garnets. Haven't tested the metal yet, but willing to bet it's silver. It strikes me as Victorian. Was hoping you could help me figure out what these are called. Have seen similar pieces to this before. Cheers!IMG_6889.JPGIMG_6890.JPGIMG_6893.JPGIMG_6894.JPGIMG_6896.JPG

YouTiube guy

3:25  -"You can even find them cheaper on eBay, but I bought mine through az because eBay feels a bit sketchy, while az gives me a gaurentee of money back"

 

He goes on to talk about what we sellers have been saying for the longest, Chinese sellers being shown before/next to Americans/Europe sellers.

 

3:35 -"While most others are slow shipping from China"

 

eBay, if you're reading this, can you now listen to not only you sellers, but your buyers as well? 

Let the people in their respected country sell what the Chinese want to sell, as it used to be. 

More jobs for Americans, more competition since we aren't having to compete with ridiculously low prices due to subsidized shipping or sellers being manufactureres, etc.

 

 

P.s. good thing this guy isn't buying from eBay, watch from 3:00 to find out why.

I'm sure you've seen this before, but it was new to me so decided it was "different" enough to mark today's special occasion!

 

It is described as follows:

I do NOT want to chat with someone about this ad I found on Ebay yesterday.  It would be much better if they would LOOK at the photo that is a part of the advertisement on their website and then took some action.

 

If this type of advertising is allowed now, what will come next?   This is E-Bay - not Adam & Eve!  There should never be any photos like this to sell an item.

If they have to use sexual photos to sell their product, maybe they need to do it some place else.  I do not want E-Bay to be for adults only.

 

Here is the ad and the photo is attached as well.  THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE ASKED FOR SOME RESPONSE ON THIS....HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO AT LEAST ACKNOWLEDGE SOMEONE OUT THERE IS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GARBAGE?

 

THIS PHOTO WAS ALTERED SO THAT THE FRONT OF HER BELLY LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING ELSE.....THAT IS NOT THE WAY IT LOOKS NORMALLY!

Anyone have some insight on a solution?

The short of it I purchased an item from Hong Kong, the total was $4.26 shipping included...   This item was/is eligible for Ebay's Money Back Guarantee...  I should note the item wasn't packaged in a box or envelope, it was wrapped in some bubble wrap with a skin of packing tape, it didn't even have a customs form, so I'm surprised it got past customs...  The item arrived broken and damaged, I contacted the seller the same day it arrived telling them it arrived broken/damaged and included a picture as well as a description of the damage...  The sellers offer was to refund me 10% or 43 cents as compensation, basically an insult that I refused...  They then told me to send it back for a full refund...  I find the idea that they want it shipped back at a cost far exceeding the purchase price stupid but whatever they want, I'm not looking to scam them I just want my money back...

 

So I opened am Ebay return dispute for the item, under not as described - damaged to track the return in Ebay's system...

The seller accepted the return in the dispute and provided a return mailing address in China, not Hong Kong where the item was purchased and shipped from, I find that suspicious in itself... 

Anyway in the return dispute I'm presented with this page, red highlight my doing...

 

return page

At the bottom of that page I have three choices "Enter Tracking Info" "Contact Seller" or "Close the Request"

So for the last 4 days and I have been contacting the seller requesting the pre-paid return shipping label so I can ship it back, as step one clearly outlines I'm supposed to do...  The seller has went silent and has not responded to that request...

So today I get an message from Ebay telling me I have to ship/return the item by August 4 or possibly forfeit my refund...  After receiving this message I called Ebay to hopefully settle this or get a solution...

After 35 minutes on the phone today, and talking to two customer service reps (one supposedly a return specialist) all I did was go in circles, honestly both appeared to not have a clue about how  returns work...

They kept insisting I scroll down the page and see the seller provided their address and I should ship it back, I kept telling them I would love to ship it back as soon as the seller provide the pre-paid return label that step one indicates they are required to do...  They kept insisting the return address the seller provided was sufficient, while I kept explaining that the return address was not sufficient as the seller is also obligated to pay for the return shipping not just provide an address as that requires me to pay the shipping...  I also kept explaining that for the last 4 days I have been contacting the seller to get said pre-paid return label...  This went on for 35 minutes like a ping-pong match...

Also when I opened the dispute the Ebay message said if it's not resolved by July 31st then I can request they intervene, that is what the phone call was supposed to be, but the 'return specialist' is now telling me they can't do anything until at least Aug 2 and that I needed to wait until Aug 2 before he could do anything else, and then went on to thank me for letting him help me :-/

BTW: I was quoted nearly $28 from the post office as the lowest option return shipping with tracking, that being first class parcel stacked with registered mail service...  I highly doubt the seller wants to cover the $28 return shipping vs just refunding me the $4.26, but if they are I'm more than willing to ship the broken item back...

 

Anyone resolved a similar issue, it appears the return policy is simply broken...

                    AUGUST GOTTA MAKE MONEY SUPPORT GROUP

 

 

August is finally here - it's a great transition month for eBay Sellers.  And it's also a great month for beach lovers and winding down on Summer fun.  If you haven't taken the time this summer to visit a beach, go and do so.  Relax, catch some rays, and recharge before the busy part of the month arrives. 

 

August is a great time to start thinking about the upcoming Holiday season that will soon be upon us.  Get your fall items prepped and ready to list as the sales will soon be picking up as the weeks go by.  We welcome all and hope you will stop in and visit with us.

 

      

    For Luck we have Magic Listing Dust

The Gotta Make Money Support Group is here to help and support each other in Making Money, so here are some suggestions to keep the money flowing. We've culled these from years of experience and hope you'll be helped by them!

 

1) LIST IN A VARIETY OF FORMATS - Try some regular auctions, auctions with Buy it Now, Fixed Price, and Fixed Price with Best Offer. Not only will you get a better idea what works for YOU, but you'll offer buyers a variety of buying options.

 

2) OPTIMIZE YOUR LISTINGS – By using the free Terapeak Keyword app (find it in the Applications tab), practice how to take better photos, change the keywords on your listing titles regularly, change the opening blurb in your store header every now and then, and experiment with price changes UP as well as DOWN!  Run Sales on a regular basis with the Markdown Manager and also learn how to set up Promotions on your Store listings for better visibility.

 

3) DON'T LET YOUR UNSOLD LISTINGS LAY AROUND - Check your My eBay page and click on Unsold...get those relisted ASAP!  You've already done all the work, so be sure they're viewable by buyers!

 

4) OPEN A STORE - If you are wondering whether you are better off with a BASIC store or a PREMIUM store, figure that if you have over 250 store items, Premium is a better buy....under 250, Basic is....this is at least a rule of thumb to get you started.  Stores used to be great places to put items and keep them available year round, but with the fee changes, maybe not so much - sit down and figure it all out.

 

However, there are at least four really good reasons to have a store.... 1) listing fees are less if you have a store, 2) your items can be separated into categories making it much easier for buyers to shop, 3) you can run Promotions and Markdown Manager sales. They are two different ways to generate sales!, and 4) you can put your store in vacation mode when you need to get away for a bit.

 

5) DEAL WITH BIDDERS, BUYERS, AND ANNOYING INQUISITIVE POTENTIAL BIDDERS IN A PATIENT AND FRIENDLY WAY - Remember that it's worth money in your pocket and it's good business sense to show respect to all.   If you must, write up that snarky reply, get a laugh at it, then hit delete.

 

6) KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE! This thread is all about MAKING MONEY, that's for sure, but we feel that being supportive of our Lister Sisters and Brothers helps ALL of us. Drop in and hang out! Venting is allowed, but take it easy on the drama, negative vibes and controversial, off-topic issues such as politics and religion.

This is from my auction lot from a couple of weeks ago.  Just a little brooch 1 in. by 7/8 in.  Red/orange stones;  back was tarnished, cleaned up with silver polish so I assume it is at least silverplate but no marking at all.  It has a C hook fastener.

Antique Rug. Help ID Please.

Got this when I stumbled across it in the back of a friend's antique shop - I ended up trading her some costume jewelry for it because she'd never been able to sell it. She had no idea on it's orgin; she'd gotten it when she bought out an estate several years ago.

I was sure it was Asian or Thai because of the eyes until a friend said he thought it may be african because of the elongated neck & rings on it. Anyone have any ideas on this statue's orgin?

It appears to be carved from one piece of wood. Could this be a real artistic piece, or just a tourist piece? although it is 36" tall on ot's own; making it a difficult piece of carry-on luggage to take back home - plus add the heavt wood pedestal & it would be impossible for a tourist to being this back home.

It is not signed anywhere.

Thanks, I appreciate any help.

I've been seeing this for a week or so and it's annoying. Does anyone know why ebay took the totals out from the categories thingie on the left hand side? Nothing there either if you expand all categories, the list of categories just gets longer.

 

An example cause I don't have the right words to describe it - I had just read a post by someone saying his fees went up 5% so I took a look at what kinda stuff he lists and see

Bidding & Buying question

One, Trudy Heffner (trudyannheffner@yahoo.com) bought an iphone 5c. It was shipped (9405803699300026205304 USPS tracking).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

She received it, (Trudy Heffner 7/14/15 Susan, I did receive the phone today; however, I am extremely disappointed as it is not a new phone, has scratches on the bottom right and left of the face of the phone, and it did not a new phone, has scratches on the bottom right and left of the face of the phone, and it did not come with a car charger as it was advertised on eBay. I would not have paid over $200 with shipping for a phone in this condition when I can get a brand new one for $200. I'm going to review my options on eBay and will likely be returning this item to you.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before she examined the item for scratches she immediately assumed it was scratched when in fact it was the screen cover.

 

To: voogvroumen@hotmail.com
 
trudyannheffner@yahoo.com
 
 
 
 
Susan,
 
The phone does not have scratches, I apologize - the scratches were on the screen protector that was on the phone, but this phone did not come with the car charger as it was advertised. I'm willing to consider keeping it if the car charger is sent as advertised, but if not, I'm sending it back. Please let me know if you have this charger and whether or not you'll be sending it. 
 
Thank you,
 
Trudy Heffner
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
She then continued with the car charger. I sent her the very one that was utilized in the family vehicle, plus an extra USB cord. I have no more chargers for Iphones as she bought the last one from my family.  I do not use ebay as a business. Rather, it was my second (2ND) sale ever. I did what I could to appease the woman and yet she believes I have more to give. As it is she has everything as advertised and then some. I have lost more money dealing with her than I should have.
 
From what I have read from others who have had to deal with a stalker buyer I have a snowballs chance in hell to be able to call this sale good and walk away. I am not giving this iphone to her as it is in perfect working condition and was treated extremely well. Ms. Heffner has been utilizing this phone since.   She has every item I can send her. I can ot afford to buy her a new car charger. She has more than one way to charge her phone and not on my nickel. 
 
Our home has bought phones from ebay/Amazon and not had a car charger whether it was noted or not. It is a very small fix, rather than making a National Incident.
 
I have every email. I have attempted to appease her. I have sent all items that were connected to that phone. I am not sorry for her trouble at this point, but I am sorry I ever got caught up in this seller/buyer scenario over such an item that has been sent to her on my dime.
 
Again, I know I have a snowballs chance in hell of this swaying my direction. I give up attempting to satisfy this individual as I see no way of doing so.  She either is happy or she is not.  If she is not then I require all the items in the picture plus the extra USB cord. All items best be in the same conditon I sold them to her. In like new condition.
 
I really do not know what more I can do to make this person happy.  She has everything. /shrug..........I never knew this experience would turn into such a nightmare.  Makes me wish I had just sold the **bleep** thing back to Verizon. At least I would not have a stalker.

to customer service eBay. With sincere respect to you. as you may make difficult the power to have a communication. and care more for their vendors have disappointed us.
as the recent case of qie tiredepartment buy him. 4 Yokohama tires. and he, or I just sent two wheels. and I had the cynicism to say that pessaban 52 lbras tbsp rim, when each tire weight 28 pounds. and fedex. communicate only sent two wheels. they are even recorded and sent the recording to see that he was lying about his shipment of tires. and they call me back two wheels. which I did but it cost $ 79.62 dollars shipping back to miami seller.
and he told me that besides meregresaria my money purchase, my return of these tires this evil seller.
which still struggling. and to buy from another vendor discount tire rims.
but I see more tristezaque you help the wicked sellers because the seller has several claims and you ebay. They have not done anything about it.
here I send them the claims of other people. and I want to see my legitimate claim solution, because I will not cause ele seller sent me only two tires instead of four. and still perde money for their cause, to return the tires. this evil seller.
I hope your kind reply or I'll have to post this at national level. it is not possible. it must be uiqen punish irresponsible. and not a good buyer.

I also saw that in the seller kristin8. who sold me two sensors to towncountry. which they did not help. I put a feedback as it should be on the ebay site. and you are. they took, when you see the emails I sent. They are aggressive and insulting. and you deleted from the web to put positive. and that's not fair. because the will; or.me sending two incompatible sensors for 2008. towncountry not worked. and still I threaten me that if I do not get a positive fedbck the calficara me wrong. this is not done. ebay you have to set an example and be impartial. I hope your kind reply and political as as they say, if the seller has to pay because he will have to return the shipment. and if the buyer alike. but Jan ste case is observed and no recordings and photos by fedex delivery. delivered two wheels instead of four. and seller never showed his face. tauro 200.

Hi everyone.  I hope this is the right forum for posting these pics.  I just found these four woodblock prints in a Goodwill.  I think they're very cool, but I can't for the life of me, make out the signature.  I'm really hoping someone out there might be able to help.  The prints are all framed and under glass.  I used my scanner to get these images.  They vary in size from 6.5"x7.5" to 4.5"x3.5", so they're smaller works.  The frames are newer, but of nice quality and done in Florida(there's a sticker on the back).  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This fly reel was in with a bunch of vintage Shakespeare and Martin reels but it does not have a maker's name on it - only has JAPAN stamped on the mounting plate.  It is painted with what appears to be original flat black.  What would be the best way to title it so that some interested party might have at least a remote chance of finding it.  Thanks for your help.

Selling question

 

Please give me some advise as how I could collect the $117 this guy owes me (for a defective item I returned to him with his consent - Seller: usjacq-z9laja

 

July 30, 2015

The seller is a dishonest person, or at least has the tendency to be dishonest, for merely a bait of $100. He sold me a defective SD disk and owed me $117, and he is in hiding from me.

It’s sad a merely $117 can turn a regular citizen to be a human trash like him.

June 13, 2015, I bought “Avaya IP Office SD Card with Essential Edition R8” from the seller for $100 plus $6.40 shipping. The selling price was less than 50% of the ongoing price for the similar products at Ebay.

June 18, 2015, received the card;

June 29, 2015, I wrote to the buyer, SD card is corrupted and did not work, and asked for a return;

June 29, 2015, he replied” I am so sorry that it s corrupted. I will take the SD card back.”

June 29, 2015, he also replied “I hate these things. That's why I am out of this business. I totally understand.”

July 7th,

July 7th, I return the SD Card with USPS restricted delivery, costing me about $11

July 9th, the package was delivered and signed off by the sell;

Repeated emails to the seller went unanswered.

Any clue what this logo is?

I'm looking for any information I can find about this pair of old candlesticks. I think they're probably chalkware. I know for sure that they're older than 1964, because they came with the house that my parents bought that year. But I have no idea how much older.

 

They are 16" tall, and the bases are 6" in diameter. Those appear to be angels or cherubs around the tops. The bottoms are covered with felt. I don't know what's underneath the felt. I can't find a maker's mark or signature or country of origin anywhere. A mark might be under the felt; I'm chicken to break the glue-bond and pull up the felt to look.

 

I don't even know what this style would be called, much less what era these might be from or where they might have been made.

Need Info on Old Candlesticks

One poster here occasionally regales us with accounts of his most recent finds.

 

Would other board regulars be willing to occasionally share an interesting coin they've either bought, sold, or otherwise encountered in the last month?  Along with comments on what they liked or learned about it?   Doesn't need to be valuable, just interesting to someone.  On the sports memorabilia board, there used to be month-end threads like this. 

 

So, I'll start for July (actually, it's a coin that sold at the end of June ... cheating at my own game).

 

I ran acoss this small Guatemala coin in my collection; I must have picked it up as a kid (that telltale rust on the staples of the 2 x 2).  I hadn't ever looked at it closely enough to realize that the portrait on the front was NOT a national political leader, but a religious figure, Brother Bartolomew de las Casas.  When I looked it up in Krause, it seemed to be a common, low value coin, but I didn't see any in an eBay sold items search.  I listed it as a BIN at 12 times Krause and was surprised it sold in a day.  OK, the price was $2.95 which ain't exactly gonna pay the mortgage, but it's also a bit better than $0.99.  It turns out that Batolomew de las Casas was an interesting figure, ahead of his time in some ways, advocating for the rights of indigenous peoples in Central America back in the early 1500s:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bartolom%C3%A9_de_las_Casas.

I received 2 emails from ebay with the same offer (see attached):

 

SPECIAL OFFER
List and sell an item by July 02, 2015, and get a $10 eBay Coupon when it sells.

 

I followed all the terms and conditions, and sold an item before July 02.  Email states the coupon will arrive within 3 weeks, which it never did.  I called customer service, and they told me I never received the email.  What?  Really?  I saved copies of the email that ebay is telling me was never sent.  I asked to forward copies, but they can't accept emails.  Really?

 

The offer was also sent to my ebay messages, but mysteriously disappeared.  I didn't delete the message from my ebay, because I intended to claim the offer.  There is no trace of the message in any of the folders (inbox, deleted, sent, etc.)  I still have copies that were sent to my personal email.

 

Ebay customer disservice refused to help.  Is there anything else I can do?  Everything is correct and documentation can be provided, but ebay refuses to listen.

Couldn't resist this cute figurine, but I'm unable to identify it. She's ceramic, and about 9" tall. Carrying a tray of desserts, with a beagle (I think) dog at her feet, holding a fork in his hand. The base has a glass tealight candle holder. I love her unruly, curly hair & shoes. Has anyone ever come across anything like her? Or, does it look like something made by a particular maker? Thanks for any thoughts.

What´s this?

Can anyone help me identify this porcelain figurine and possibly provide keywords? I've searched Disney's website and eBay and I can't find this one. From what I understand, they have names - does anyone happen to know this one? Possibly a year it was produced? The bottom is marked "authentic original Disney theme parks" so I'm guessing someone bought this at Disney World. It's approximately 5" tall and 6" across. Any and all information will be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you need additional information from me. Thanks in advance for your time, help, and expertise!

Hi, I had a case opened where the buyer wanted to return the item.  The item functioned just fine, obviously a case of buyer's remorse.  Ebay found in favor of the buyer and said they would refund their money when I received the item back.  Well, I have not received the item back and they went ahead and refunded the buyer anyway and now my paypal has a negative balance.  I checked the tracking # and it said the item was sent back by the post office because it could not be delivered as addressed.  I am assuming he wrote the address on it incorrectly.

 

Why did they refund before the tracking shows that I received it!?

This tear drop shaped piece is 2 3/8" long and is made from 1/16" thick steel. The upper mount is detachable via the hex bolt. The hex bolt does have some tiny lettering, which apears to be "YFS" or "VFS", but that may refer to the manufacturer of the hex bolt.

I need help on Identifying this artist name.

I have two unsigned pins that I have no idea where I got them from.  Both are pretty and unusual in their own way.  Could someone please tell me anything you know about age or style?  I usually only buy jewelry that is signed and I can look up to find information.  

 

1)  This lovely red enamel pin has clear rhinestones for the stamen.  Where the pin closes looks like it may be broken.

2)  This one has both enamel, glass or plastic open back stones incased in saw tooth like prongs, and faux pearls for the stamen.

Hello,

 

I'm wondering do i need to refund buyer shipping fee for damaged packaging? the items remained undamaged however. Because I put shoes inside a stow bag.

 

it is a pair of shoes, I stated in the listing that, the auction is for shoes only, no shoe trees no anything else.

 

No, I didn't say i would ship it in the original packaging, i didn't even mention the word packaging.

Shipping & Returns question

Jul 31, 2015 11:48:45 PM PT

Do i refund for damaged packaging?

So, I made a "best offer" on an item, and gave myself a little bit of leeway for haggling. The seller refused the offer and sent me a scathing email saying that my offer was insulting, and I had no idea how much sellers pay in fees, etc. I am aware of fees and such, because I have sold on eBay in the past,  but that isn't the issue. It's what happened next. I apologized to them profusely in reply, and received another email full of anger. They said they were blocking me, and not to contact them again.

 

I searched all over for another item like theirs, and could not find one, so I asked my next door neighbor to just buy the item for me, at the seller's full BIN price, and I would pay them back. The next day, my neighbor received a similar heated email from the seller saying that while they would ship the item, that their buying the item for me was against eBay rules and that they were going to report BOTH of us if we "gave them any trouble".

 

I am aware that if I myself had made a seperate account in an attempt to subvert the seller's blocking me, there might be an issue, but can the seller really have us BOTH reported for this? I mean, really, the seller got their full price for the item.  If she reports me, so be it, but my friend as well?

Seller Doesn't Take Questions

So, I sold a $1200 statue about a month ago. Sealed, mint-in-box, direct from the manufacturer, but in climate-controlled storage for a few years. Should have been no issues.

 

Buyer gets the item and notices that there's a paint chip missing on one small, detachable part (the hair). We try to reach an amicable resolution.

 

I offer to find him a repair service that will handle this; I find a guy who actually works for the company who made this statue, so he's an expert at repairs for this specific type of statue. He will repair it for $50, which I'm totally willing to pay, plus shipping and insurance from the buyer's location (somewhere in the Phillipines, I think).

 

Instead, the buyer first demands $180 for a repair - which is an INSANE amount for the minuscule amount of painting that needs to be done. He'd complained about the price of the item from day one anyhow. I told him that I'd give him a $100 refund to keep him happy, which would absolutely cover a professional repair. He decides to "compromise" at $140.

 

He refuses to send the piece for repair, and instead decides that he'd like to find someone locally. At this point, he admits to extorting more than the repair fee from me: "I feel you should pay a little extra anyway as the piece arrived with these damages."

 

I ask him to send me an actual invoice for the repair costs, which I will cover up to $140, just to be done with it all. He's very unwilling to send an actual invoice, because he knows it's a ridiculous cost.

 

I call eBay, they're too confused to handle the call (I get passed around, one person thinks I'm the buyer, I get read a script, etc.), and I get no resolution.

 

I'm willing to pay the repair cost, even though it's not damage that came from me, because I didn't inspect the item a second time before I sent it. It's an expensive lesson, but I'll take it.

 

So, my questions are these:

 

1. Is it completely unrealistic to ask for an actual invoice from a legit repair service rather than pay a random amount?

2. The buyer admitted to extortion and requesting fees above and beyond the actual cost of repair; are there repercussion for this?

 

Thanks for any help that can be provided, as eBay's CS line was not helpful.

YOU:

i never did recieve the item, you lied, i did not benefit from this at all. and you are now being a nuisance, i have reported you to ebay. and sent them copies of your emails.

easebon:

But you have received all the money 6.36(GBP).
Item is on the way to you and the money has been refunded to you.
Finally you left us a negative feedback which really hurts us a lot.
Thinking who benefit MOST in this transaction?
It is YOU.
Hope you can understand us and do us the favor,ok?
Waiting for your reply.

YOU:

stop sending me these emails, i will never alter the feed back, and any more of these and i will phone ebay to complain about you, see what that does to your stupid business.

easebon:

Hello friend,
Sorry to bother you again.
I really feel so sorry for any inconvenience to you. I know your feeling, my friend.
I am writing to you and want to know if there is any chance that we can remedy?
It is so important to satisfy you. And we hope to do business with you in the future.
Could you kindly help us to revise the feedback into a positive one with 5 stars rating?

Feedback extortion

24 hours ago, 3 of my auction style listings went from about 120 page views to over 7700+ within a 2 hour period in the middle of the night. Almost immediately when the 2 hours were up, the page views slowed down and trickled in, then eventually just stopped and went to normal. The items in question are rare, but not so rare they would generate that many views in such a short amount of time.

 

I have listed like items before and generated 500 or so page views over a 5 day span, but never anything like this.

 

I can not find the source that posted the links. is it possible my listings were hacked in some way? - or is there any way to see where the links were posted?

 

Im totally stumped

insane number page views

Today for the first time ever, when I am listing, instead of showing the standard default shipping fields for me to add a shipping dollar cost to, I am getting a drop-down window with probably 50 different combinations I have entered in the past. The abbreviated titles for these different combinations of economy and priority options are very hard to differentiate or identify. I didn't (intentionally) change anything in my account site preferences. Did eBAy eliminate the old format and replace it with this drop-down format? Any help on this would be much appreciated! Thank you!

 

Selling discussion

Just wanted some clarification...

 

eBay help says a SNAD can be opened within 30 days of delivery. (Let's forget about Paypal's 180 limit, I'm speaking in terms of a buyer who will do everything within eBay's guidelines).

 

In the event of no "proof of delivery", how long will eBay give them to open the case? Is it still 30 days?

 

eBay says 30 days to open an INR case (and they mentioned it in the same sentence as the SNAD regulation), so does that mean they're going by the date the item was sent?

 

I'm asking because I like to clean out my list of shipped items from myebay, not everyone leaves feedback or tells me they got the item. So I'm trying to figure out when I'm safe to archive it without fear of an eBay INR or SNAD. I am very aware they can open a case in Paypal, I can't control that, it will be long archived from eBay if a buyer decides to wait until day 175 to open a case.

 

Can someone who knows how this work (when there is no proof of delivery available - International shipment) provide some information?

 

Thanks, C.

Hello so I'm freaking out that I made a bad purchase choice because it seems to be a scam. Honestly don't know for sure but I'm a worry wort. Anyway, I used Pay after Delivery thankfully. Can I tell eBay to not take the money out if I haven't received the item within the 14 days it says? Or if I have to go through my bank I will.

Pay After Delivery and protection

A member won the bid but never paid for the item. He has good ratings and I realize **** happens. Obviously there could be a reason he never paid. I left him several nice messages and simply told him to let me know if there was a problem paying so I could cancel the order and relist. No response at all. The process ended and I relisted. Should I just forget it and move on, or should I try to warn others about his failure to pay?

Payments discussion

Jul 30, 2015 9:06:30 AM PT

should I just get over it?

I received the wrong item. Contacted the seller and advised him of the problem and I also sent photos. Seller offered me a partial refund or if I returned the item, he would issue a full refund. Buyer wants me to pay for the return shipping. I advised the seller it was his responsabilty for the cost of the return shipping.

I told the seller that I wanted a full refund first, and after I receive a return shipping label, I would sent back the item.

I have not heard back for the seller.

Should I go to the resolution center and open a case.

Kate Spade mine

I had a very weird experience.   Today when I checked the shipping status of my sold items, I discovered that on a recent international sale a partial refund for a significant amount of money had been granted to the buyer.  I had not been advised about this in any way whatsoever.  When I called eBay to learn more, I was told that it was an "Admin refund".  They could provide no other information, but the eBay CSR refered me to Paypal.  Note, that thus far no money has been debited from my account.

 

When I contacted Paypal, I learned that the the "Admin refund" was because the customer's credit card had been declined, at least in part for the total amount due.  I expressed my concern to the Paypal CSR that it appears that the buyer may get a nice art print for free, or nearly so, if the shipment is not reversed or the buyer doesn't pay the full amount.  Paypal said they would email the buyer and ask them to pay the full amount.  Paypal also said I should try to contact the shipping carrier to have the package sent back to me.  

 

The item has left the US and is on it's way to Norway.  I do not have the carrier and tracking info yet for this leg of the journey, only eBay's internal GSP number.  Fedex was responsible only for the domestic leg of the journey.  And so, my concern is that the buyer will get a nice art print without paying for it, and that somehow I will get charged for it.  I probably won't, or shouldn't, as I used eBay's GSP to ship it, and I did not process the payment, eBay and Paypal did.  

 

Should I just wait and see what happens, or should I contact eBay again and try to get the shipment reversed?  Personally, I have a moral issue with fraudsters getting away with things, even if I am not personally affected.  Plus, I don't like the idea of nice art in the hands of questionable people.  What would you do?

Hey ! Iphone sold im waiting for money

I have been trying to find the answer on the USPS site but their information is so vague.  I have an item I want to mail priority that weighs approximately 5 lbs.  When I go to their site to figure approximate postage I check the Large Package area.  It then asks .... is Your Package Rectangular/Square or Nonrectangular?  I choose Retangular because I think the Nonrectangular means something could be round, or a cylinder of some kind.  Then it asks to post the Length, Height, and Width.  When I click to find the cost, it says, Priority 2-Day mail $26.21.  When I click on more information, this is what it says........The maximum size is 108 inches or less in combined length plus girth (distance around the thickest part). The girth of my package is 82." So this is where I'm confused.  The measurements of my package are:

 

Length:  21"

Width:  11"

Height:  9"

 

If I click on Package, it gives me a price of $15.22, which is about a $10 difference in shipping.  Is it the length of the package that's costing more??  I can't find anything or anyone to help me on the USPS site. 

 

Any info would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

eBay... HEAL THYSELF... quit blaming others and being a victim. Your 1990s site and how it "works" and the reputation you've saddled it with by making the RETURN PROCESS your big selling point is the real issue... NOT GOOGLE!!!

I sold a 23" Apple Cinema display with power supply box and cables to the highest bidder ($177.50 + shipping). My computer had died and I was unable to test the display before shipping, though the last time I used it everything was working fine. Apparently, the power supply box is defective and buyer claims full refund. I am offering the buyer either (1) to replace the power supply box by another one to be purchased on ebay ($87+ shipping) or (2) to give a partial refund of $100 (value of the power supply box + shipping). What is the community opinion as to the fairest resolution?

During the month of Julio 2015 el Heron was able to acquire only 4 coins.

All 4 are Holy Roman Empire issues.

 

This coin of Austria-Lotharingen [or Lothringen, either is correcto] was not on 

Heron's want list.

However, the price was 'right' so Heron added this to the HRE collection!

 

This coin is listed as a 1 Pfennig, copper, and dated 1765HA.

This coin is 19.5mm dia.  Listed as Austria KM2001.

This coin grades Extra Fine +.

 

On obverse is depicted Franz Stefan I as Duke of Lothringen.

 

On reverse is coat of arms of Lothringen.

 

Some info regarding Lothringen:

 

925AD - conquered by Heinrich der Vogeljagder, an East Frankian.

 

To 1766, part of the HRE.  Changing size by reduction and constant

territorial additions and subtractions.

 

1728 to 1737 ruled by Duke Franz Stefan I.

 

1736, Franz Stefan married Maria Theresa of Austria.

 

1737 - Franz Stefan received Tuscany in return for handing over 'control'

of Lothringen to Duke Stanislaw Leszczynski, former King of Poland.

 

1765 - Franz I died.

 

Some additional info:

Franz I and Maria Theresa had 16 chirren.  Four died very young. Five

died without 'issue'.

 

Franz Stefan was father of Marie Antoinette of France.

 

Franz Stefan was also father of Emperor Jose II & Emp. Leopoldo II.

 

To pronounce the name Leszczynski correctly we will need assistance

of TDZ.  Heron does not know.

 

To summarize, the history of Lotharingen is long and convoluted. It would

be necessary to study for many hours.  Heron does not have many hours.

 

However, the coin series was apparently issued 1759 through 1765.  Heron

can only guess that perhaps Maria Theresa was trying to re-establish some

form of 'claim' to the territory. 

 

An interesting bit of numismaticks history.  Any coin esspert knowing more

about this issue, please advise.

The Buyer never paid for this item.

Buyer never accepted the Global Shipping Program.

After communicating with the buyer I had no option other than cancelling the transaction and relisting the guitar.

I do not feel this item cancellation should count against my product returns ratio and hurt my Top Rating Performance Ratio.

Hopefully this message can be forwarded to someone who can help befor the August 20th evaluation.
