OK, here goes. I finally was able to get time to take more pics hoping that these items can be identified.

 

 

I really like the tall one (vase or spooner) but there seems to be a defect on it.  The second picture shows the defect.  You can feel the difference in thickness when you rub your finger over it.  3 sides have it in different spots. 

 

Let me know if you need any more info or pics.

I have what I think is a bronze bell with a walnut handle.  There are (3) stamps on the base, one of which ("G") stands for Gorham (I believe).  What are the other (2)?  Thanks!

This is my find for the day. It has very high quality matte hand painted decoration. It actually reminds me of some the American arts & crafts makers, like Rookwood and Newcomb. I'm not sure what to make of the subject matter, ladies running silhouette. I'm almost certain the mark within the square is the signature of the artist or company. I've search gotoberg and couldn't find anything. Measurements, 6.5" tall and 5" diameter. Any thoughts as to maker or age are greatly appreciated.

Please help, is this vintage Coach real?

There was a new message in my listing form today that demonstrates how much eBay knows about selling.

 

It recommended that I list my fixed-price item as an auction, that buyers are almost twice as likely to purchase it:

 

 SellbyAuction.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

I was surprised when I saw this, so I looked at Completed LIstings for the last 30 most similar items, made two lists (fixed-price and auction). Here are the results:

 

Fixed Price - 17 items sold for an average of $5.29 each

 

Auction - 13 items sold for an average price of $1.61

 

 

There was no substantial difference in the style or quality of the items selling by both methods.

 

 

 

So what should we learn from this?

 

Either eBay's "trending," pricing, and analytical software doesn't give accurate information on prices and how to sell particular items or... eBay knows perfectly well that fixed-price items sell better and bring better prices in this category but wants sellers to sell by auction so buyers get those feel-good rock-bottom prices.

 

 

Either way, eBay gave me bad advice and I ignored it. I suggest you all continue to do your own research and don't trust eBay's suggestions. Look up the completed listings to see what works best for your product.

Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend.
I have these beautiful scatter pins, they look like wasps to me, they measure 1+3/8" in length.
Molded art glass heads and they are very well made and so pretty !
No marks, there are some slight imperfections on the finish on the backs but I looked closely, no marks.
I've checked Coro patents but nothing, I was wondering if anyone here has seen them before or recognizes them.
Thanks for any help.

New to eBay Chit Chat & More ~ EVERYONE WELCOME!

Today, I visited a personal friend of mine at the jewelry shop he owns.  I'd gone in there to get a wedding set repaired and to replace its faux stone with an emerald.  A planned 30-minute visit turned into a 4.25 hour visit and lunch.  *grin*

When I visit, I often bring jewelry which I find interesting and unique.  It's a thing we have, this gawking and talking about jewelry and gems.  Sometimes, I consign some of his older stock on venues to get it moved out (more of that in another post).  He knows many things I don't in regards to fine jewelry, and my wealth of knowledge in costume jewelry often comes into play when I look at things that have been brought to him.

Today, he gave me a gift:  several pieces of Rostov finist jewelry.  The bracelet has no assay marks, but the earrings do have an assay mark.  All are lovely.  They were given to me as a blessing, and I'll be quite honest:  I'm in love with these pieces.

If anyone can tell me anything about this type of jewelry or can translate the tag, I'd greatly appreciate it.  All of the pieces have the original Russian tags.

Thanks!

Hello all x
I just wondered if anyone knows who this Tammy clone is please? Does she have a name? She was made from the Tammy mould, I can see  very faint impression on the nape of her neck, bt her only markings are made in Hong Kong on her back. Apart from her horris hair and her rough seams, she's a very well made doll.
I have looked and can't find a clone that was actually made from the same mould. Has anyone seen one like this before? Thank you all  ( I have redressed her  )  

Hope my pics aren't too big, I selected medium but they look huge

Need help with pattern on vase.

I did this about 10 years ago. At that too much was going on in life and sales was not good enough to mitivate me to put any time in it. I lasted about one year. Mostly just paid the rent and the cost of merchandise.

Now I want to try it again. I just secured a booth of size 12x15 feet. The rent is $1 per square foot. I also bought a few bookcases from a dealer in the mall.

The idea is of couse to sell books that are otherwise not sellable online.  I know that it involves a lot of time to do this.

Pros? Cons? Experience?

Good morning, I have these 2 matching 3 1/4 inch long coinsilver pictureback spoons which I believe are American Coinsilver. They have a nice floral picture on the backs and beveling on the fronts with AW in fancy script for the monograms. These seem like 1780-1810 pattern items to me. They are the same basic form as my John Meyer dove back spoons which are 1780-1820ish Philidelphia. They might be David Mygatt who worked  Danbury CT and later  New York ca. 1804. I might already have this solved, however, I know better than to assume to much.

OK, all the regulars here know I am a Victorian Sash pin maven, I LOVE them! So, I won a lot last week that had a sash pin in it that looked strange to me in the photos, but I bid on it anyway (keeping the wonky look in mind) and won. Got the lot and there is this poor, sweet, brass sash pin covered in a layer of silver spray paint!

 

At least they had the good sense to remove the stone first!

 

But what I want to ask is what is the best way to remove the paint? Should I start by soaking in water? Or should I go right to paint stripper? It looks fairly recently done since the painted surface is in good shape - lucky me :smileymad:

 

Here is a photo of my poor, painted sash pin (yes, they very nicely painted the back also!) :smileysad:

I have found a brass mask that I believ to be African in origin. Was wondering if anyone might be able to confirm this, along with a region and possible age. Measures 11" long, 4 3/4" wide and is 3 1/4" in depth. Thanks

Good morning my fellow **bleep** off ebay sellers!!! I just wanted to say EBAY is showing 2014 growth in sales!!!!

And every seller I have spoken to has seen a 70% decline in sales in 2014 !!! **bleep** is really good with ebay!!

 

Ebay's policies are broken & it's time we sellers show them that we have other alternatives to FEEBAY.

 

FEEBAY WHERE WE TAX SELLERS & PROTECT BUYERS!!:smileysurprised:

 

A new site with growing potential!! Bonanza.com which is shaping up to be pretty impressive.

I recently received a shipment of 8 internal hard disk drives listed by an eBay seller as "new."

 

I contacted the seller, giving three reasons why I thought the drives were not actually new as produced by Western Digital, but were drives that had been removed from WD My Book USB external hard disk drives.

 

The most important reason is that the serial numbers of the drives are associated on the WD support website with the My Book devices, not with internal hard disk drives.

 

The seller’s response does not include an admission of deception.

However the seller has offered to refund the purchase price and shipping charges and provide a return shipping label.

 

Is it too idealistic to demand that this deceptive listing practice be stopped?  Is negative feedback justified?

 

Is there a better way to help other eBay buyers avoid this kind of deceptive listing from this seller?

Hi. Don't know what to do. Won an item and the seller doesn't want to accept my payment - saying that I contacted on the 4th day and it was late and he sold it someone else. What should I do? I understand that I had to contact him earlier, but also I think that the seller had to inform me that he was going to sell the item  someone else. Thanks for your attention and help

This is the second time I've sold an item on eBay in months after having a bad experience with a buyer who put in a claim a month after receiving the item that it was open and wanted a partial refund. EBay sided with the buyer even when they saw the messages stating she was going to give me negative feedback if I didn't refund some money back. So I started posting and selling on offerup which worked great on selling ,quick easy money, but for big ticket items I went back on eBay. Which brings me to my issue, the last item I was selling bidding up to a wonderful $300 bucks to a "0" feedback buyer....never paid. Just sold another item at a surprisingly $32 once again a bunch of bids. Winning bidder 0 feedback. Watching and waiting for 7 days then another week to cancel once no payment is received. It's it worth it? Anyone else feeling the same?

it's it worth it?

Ebay gives me a shipping ding!

 

I ask CS (in Utah) if my customer leaves feedback confirming delivery would ebay take the strike off ~ NO

 

The system can't do that she says.

 

I ask why the customer doesn't have an option to click that would confirm delivery or pickup

 

She says sellers would harass buyers that didn't leave feedback, I explain it's not a feedback issue.

 

It's the ability for a buyer to confirm delivery of merchandise

 

Then she goes into the 10% thing and it's for issues just like this

 

I then ask if I mail my customer a toothpick with tracking would this satisfy ebay

 

She said YES

 

So in essence local delivery and pickup can affect your TRS status.

 

Sometimes I think ebay has gone CrAzY

Selling discussion

All,

 

Over the past months I have read so many return 'issues' that my head spins and I just can't ever seem to find the right one when searching for when I'm in need of specific help, so please bear with me :smileyhappy:

 

Buyer requested a return due to Doesn't Fit. I accept returns. Buyer was supposed to ship by 11/20 we kept communication and she shipped on 11/22, I received today. She provided me with the tracking # but didn't upload it herself, and I can't find a way for me to do that (she did this at the post office because she couldn't figure out how to ship online).

 

I would like to go ahead and refund her the purchase price (looks like that's all I'm liable to refund per my Ebay message, i.e., no shipping costs) now that I've received it -- am I running a risk by refunding her with no tracking to prove I received it?  I thought I remember reading somewhere about double Ebay refunds by not doing this right -- if I refund now, and let's say Ebay tells her for whatever reason to upload tracking and it shows delivered, would another refund happen?

 

My question may be silly but one thing I've learned is to never proceed with what seems appropriate until I check with the fine folks one these boards :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks in Advance!

Is eBay down this morning (Nov. 24, 0914 EST)? I can't get my selling info and I can't revise an item, but I can get far enough in to see my listed items, but when I try to revise anything, I get re-directed to the system page, which tells me nothing is wrong.

Selling question

I don`t like to use *calculated* shipping becouse * free shipping* attracts more buyers.

 If you have free shipping in the listing then that is what Califorina residents will get.but to ship to them cost about $20.00 more that other states. 

Shipping & Returns discussion

I shipped a glass double boiler on Monday.  The tracking didn't show up as accepted on Tuesday but another package sent the same day did so I decided to wait until today to find out what's happening.  Called the PO and was told that since I used a recycled box that was previously used to ship beer they were returning it to me.  I crossed out the beer advertising but I guess that's not good enough.

 

Question:  The buyer is in the loop and I informed her of what happened.  So what should I do next?  Should I cancel this sale since there is no way it is going to be delivered to FL from PA by Saturday even if I can get it reposted today.  Do they cancel the label that's already on it?  Can I reuse it on another box? 

 

TIA for any advice.

post office returning package to me.

Just sold a $400+ item on eBay, everything went great, buyer paid promptly. I’m looking around at the shipping info for no reason and I realize that the buyer is based in Cambodia, but the item is shipping to an address and person with a similar name in California. I paid extra for the signature confirmation. If something goes wrong and the buyer opens a case against me for any reason, what precautions should I take? Assuming I get the item returned to me. And I also had a question about some comments I see around, how do I check the item, before I sign for it, with the delivery guy present? Doesn’t the delivery guy have a time schedule? How do I check if it’s the correct item without screwing myself out of my money if the item is missing or incorrect?

 

I know it’s a lot to take in but any opinions are appreciated!

 

Thank You!

Seller Precautions!

I am going to use an example.  I posted some Christmas ornaments.  When posting it, I choose "standard shipping".  It came up as $12.65.  I put $12.65 on the invoice for the buyer.  When I went to the "Purchase and print USPS postage" page, there wasn't even an option under shipping for standard.  I chose "parcel select" and it only came to $5.80.  Why are there such differences in costs?  Is my buyer going to be upset because she paid more shipping than she needed to?

Choosing shipping for an item

Is it reasonable to link both user names to the same PaYPal account?

  • My original account is excellent with both eBay (TRS) and PayPal
  • I assume eBay and/or PayPal will connect both user names becauise of the same home address and SSN regardless of whether I create a second PayPall account and connect it to a different bank account
  • For what it's worth, I am not trying to avoid a 1099 from PayPal, but I would prefer if eBay users could not connect the two accounts

I am doing this after discoveriong in this forum that there are advantages. 

 

Thank you

Yesterday an odd thing happened on an auction, #271664994021 that I was bidding on. My bid and the winning bid were the same amount and arrived at the same time. The other bid was accepted. This of course is not unusual, but on the bid page my bid is listed under the winning bid. It has been my observation, in these auctions, that when a bid comes in, after another bid,that is less than one bid increment over the highest bid comes in, in this case $2.50, it is ignored/not listed. My bid is there on the bid page under the winning bidder, same time, same amount. A second is broken up into an infinite number of parts. Even though the bids are listed as the same time, they came in at different times. In order for my bid to be listed, it would have had to come in before the winning bid.

I called eBay customer service. He talked about sniping for a while, but sniping has nothing to do with this. eBay has to process the bids as they come in, no matter where they come from.

I have been a member of eBay for sixteen years and have bid on thousands of items. Never saw this before. I just thought I would run it by this forum. Why did I not win this auction?

Selling question

...but still hasn't actually shipped it.  That puts her now at 20 days out from purchase.  She stated she 'no longer wanted it' for her reason for return.  I graciously accepted her request for a return but asked that she please mail within 5 days (the eBay requested time period) and send it with tracking.  No response.  No tracking uploaded.  No return.  Still sitting in "began return" mode.

 

If she doesn't send it back for another 4-5 days, is there a way to end this?  I'm sick of it just hanging out there.  I'd like to either get it and give her the money back (then block her) or simply close it and be done with it.

 

How does this work?

BUYER 'BEGAN RETURN' 6 DAYS AGO...

I recently sold an item.  I just get an email from buyer stating they have a problem with their paypal and it will take atleast a week to reset it.  They told me to relist it if I couldn't wait a week for payment.

 

First, I've never heard of such thing about Paypal.  Sounds like buyer is trying to get out of purchase.  I don't want to relist but I don't want to wait a week.  UGH!  What would you do?

Buyer claiming they have to reset paypal.

I recently received and cell phone that the seller said was clean but would not give out or check the ESN/IMEI number.  I received the phone and the inside white label had been partially removed.  I tested the phone on another LCD and found the ESN/IMEI number and then found out the phone was stolen.  Because I went past the 30 days, (after ordering the LCD and then doing the repair) I was not able to file an eBay claim.  I did however file a PayPal claim.  After appealing a decision I finally won and received my money back.  The trouble is that anyone who is selling a phone either new, for parts or otherwise should be forced to state in the auction that the ESN/IMEI number is either Bad, Stolen, Reported Lost or Clean & ready for activation.  I repair computers and cell phones and when their are so many out their I continuously get an eBay error stating that I have sent out hte maximum number of emails today - please try again tomorrow.  The problem with that is some of those auctions end today and I would need that information prior to placing a bid on that particular item.

 

My suggestion is

Force sellers (as I am one of them) to list the ESN/IMEI number is Bad - Reported Stolen or Lost or Clean - Ready to be activated OR Allow more emails to be sent out each day by potential buyers that need answers.

 

WHAT SAY YOU?

how to push the seller to give money back

Since here lately one has to wait at least an hour to even talk to an ebay rep, and then maybe be unlucky enough to talk to a very rude one, not to mention never getting a defect removed, I am wondering if I should even bother to call....

I had 5 stars all along, and now I have 4.9 in "description" and a defect .

Running a report I found out who gave me the low stars. Person says the following in their FB for me:

I would highly recommend. Item matched description. Packaged well for shipping.

So- do you think that's worth the effort to see if I get it removed?

Also, am I allowed to leave a follow-up FB for her saying:

If you recommend me, why leave low stars???

1:

Had the laptop that appears to be a retail return.  The box was taped up, I opened the box and the laptop appears new, but I had to test it to be sure.  Hooked it up, tested it, took a bunch of pictures of it running and the specs screen then erased it so that the buyer would have to set it up themselves. This whole process along with the pictures was in the description.  I listed it for $799 New Other and said it was an opened box and I tested it to make sure'  A guy offers me $400 for my $800 laptop and since sales have been slow I took it.  I should have looked him up first because he leaves negative to almost everyone.  So I got one too saying 'Sold Used Item As New" In the emails between us he told me the process on how to test it and how to erase it.  I have only Macs and did not know how to erase a PC.  I emailed him back and forth for a week, he said he is a drop shipper and will ask the buyer if he minds the condition of it and will return/remove neg if they are satisfied.  Haven't heard from him since.  

 

2:  Sold an item and with different choices of shipping.  FEDEX Ground or USPS Priority.  The guy picks Ground.  I ship within stated time and it take a week to get to him.  Negative feedback 'Slow Shipping'  

 

Can I fight these?  99.5% 6500 sales

Hello all,  My buyer wants me to ship to the address on the Transaction Details page but to another family member as a surprise

gift.  When I create a label thru Ebay will it let me do this and leave the buyers name off?  Thanks

Shipping & Returns question

I purchased a sign with the buyitnow button. Everything seemed normal til I received the package which was delivered and fulfilled by Amazon and inside it said "a gift from T******* G**" (Stars inserted to protect anonymity. I looked up the store that the "gift" was bought from on amazon and lo and behold it was $2 less than what I bought the sign for. (My fault I dont care about the price $2 is not a big deal)

 

But basically I want to know is this a legitimate practice? (To fulfill a customer order by buying it from a different website and having it sent as a gift?)

Buying & Selling Basics question

I got a phone call from ebay today. The CS rep wanted to give me some tips for my holiday sales. I explained to her that I had already closed 2 of my accounts and was going to close this account by the end of the year. She asked me why? I told her I was tired of all the changes with their stupid updates, very slow sales, resolution cases, buyers scamming me, high fees, going from top rated plus to being a defect when I was still selling the same as always, and not being able to leave negative feedback on scammer buyers so other sellers would beware of that buyer. She said she was sorry to hear that and what could she do to change my mind. I asked her to tell me what ebay could do for me as a seller to convince me to stay. She told me she could not give me an answer to that question. All she said was there would be a lot of changes in the coming months. I told her that I already knew that. She asked me how I knew about the upcoming changes. I told her it was very simple, one new change was I would no longer be selling or buying on ebay and hung up. I then removed the last few items I had listed and will close this ebay account and my paypal account ASAP. I am done with ebay and paypal forever. Goodbye, gspartsguy
