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.

Can you give me any help in identifying this clock? The only identifying marks are on the back of the movement where it has 2505 48 stamped. I believe it is a space before ther 48 but a piece of clock hangs in front of it.

 

I am told it is an antique French Mantel Clock. 

 

Selling question

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.

Any pickers out there have an idea what this is , It is brass, painted black a little over 17 inches long,two round balls at the end could have been used to balance,     the two holes in the center of it have an inside dia of about 1 inch and has on the no 14 on it,  Open for any suggestions before it gets cleaned and sent to the scrap pile,

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

And the reason I made you a rainbow cake is to go with this . . .

 

Tried to find one of her singing happy birthday, but didn't.  So with a nod to Liza, Judy, and Oz, enjoy.

 

 

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:

 

"13 year old Liza Minnelli sings her mom's (Judy Garland) signature song on a 1960 broadcast of Hedda Hopper's Hollywood."

 

Happy Birthday James!

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!

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.

glassies---depression/vintage glass pattern

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.

My Account question

Jul 30, 2015 10:01:48 PM PT

What´s this?

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.

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.

Negative feedback ratingCAUTION. SELLER lousy. NEGATIVE SHIPPING ONLY TWO TIRES. FOUR TIRES TO BUY. BADBuyer:

 
 
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.

bad seller. tiredepartment

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!?

 

  • Expected Delivery Day: Thursday, July 30, 2015
  • Your item was undeliverable as addressed at 10:11 am on July 30, 2015.  It is being returned if appropriate information is available.

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.

CANCEL BID OF ITEM 191625580740

What does this say? Thank you.

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...

Antique Rug. Help ID Please.

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.

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.

Missing quantities by category

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:

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.

Help with two pins please!

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?

Angry Seller

Hi folks and cheers from Sweden,

 

I have encountered a problem with a seller and I'm unsure about have the situation should be handled.

 

A seller informed me that an item I bought was returned to the seller by local customs. The seller refunded me and wanted me to buy the item again in a new transaction. I think he/she wants to kind of restart the whole transaction or something.

 

The problem is that an item that is just refunded is put on the list of Unpaid items on the buyers account. I keep telling the seller that this is what happening on my side but the seller has now refunded me a second time.

 

Has any of you guys encountered this type of problem?

 

I know that it's possible for a seller to send a request to cancel an order the proper way but it should be done before the item has been shipped. I don't think the seller can make that approach now.

 

What would you do?

A seller keeps refunding me

 

I recently received a shipping score defect for tracking not uploaded within handling time and scanned by carrier because I put my store on vacation for two days, (stating my return date) but the system still expected me to upload tracking info on time while I am away. CS said I needed to change my shipping time in my listings. I normally ship the same day.

 

What if I am away for two weeks but still accepting orders for shipment upon return? How would you even set shipping time to 14 days?

Feedback extortion

Someone please help me figure this one out. A buyer returned an item to me damaged beyon resaleable condition. In the return request details, there was the section to either approve the return or contact seller support if there was an issue. I uploaded pictures of the damaged item to return and then proceeded to get seller support involved. I explained the situation and notifed them that I had provided pictures of the damaged item as evidence. 

 

Here is the response I got:

 

"Hello ,


Thank you for contacting eBay Customer Service regarding the front derailleur that you sold to “-------” who field an item not as described case. I understand that your buyer returned the item unopened condition. I’m sorry for all the inconvenience that this transaction has caused you.


I’d like to thank you again for letting us know about what happened with your sale. I admire your initiative in resolving this issue, and I really appreciate your effort in communicating with the buyer, therefore I’m more willing to explain our actions, and your options for this claim.

 

I have reviewed the case details and I can see that the decision was correct as the buyer returned the item to you. I'm sorry to hear you have received back the item damaged. As we didn't see the exact condition of the item received by the buyer, we're not able to verify the condition the item should have been returned to you, I’m afraid that we are unable to close the case on your favour as the buyer no longer has the item with them however please be assured that I have recorded this incident on the buyer’s account.

Thank you for bringing this important matter to our attention. We rely on members like you in helping us keep eBay a safe and reputable place for everyone.

Moreover, there are still a couple of things you can do:

Contact the buyer

Often issues like this can be resolved through a friendly telephone conversation. I'd recommend you give the buyer a quick call and let them know you about this situation.

You can request the buyer's contact information by clicking “Find Contact Information” in the link below:

http://www.ebay.com/sch/ebayadvsearch?_sofindtype=9

Enter the buyer's user ID and the item number and click 'Search'.

We'll then send you your buyer's contact details by email. Bear in mind that, when we send you this, we'll also send an email to the buyer with your contact information.

I understand this is not the resolution you had hoped for but I trust I have explained our decision fully.

Kind regards,

John Reden J.
eBay Customer Service"

 

 

 

 

Can someone please explain this idiotlic response? I have been selling on eBay for over 10 years now and this is a first. Has eBay really gone downhill this fast after the PayPal split?

Does anybody know how many drafts you can make and keep on eBay for 30 days? I have a customer who wants me to list 350 all at one time instead of putting them up as i go. It's alot of work and I'm afraid i will get partially thru and many will vanish. That would confuse me because I would be sure what was still there and not....and it would be aggravating.  I've googled the question, but it keeps coming up with 7 drafts and 30 days. I've already done more than 7 and I don't want to lose them...worried

Hello,

 

I'm just a newbie here in eBay, I just recently purchased an item to a seller from China with free shiiping cost. My question, is it normal for the seller that they will not nofity me if they already shipped the item that I bought?

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.

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!

fashion terminology

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.

Sending to my non-billing address

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.

Buyer extorting refund amount. Advice?

I sold an item. The invoice was automatically sent out to the buyer. I did not hear from the buyer within the first 24 hours, so I sent an email. No response to the email. So I just called him this morning. He told me that he bought the item for his son. I explained to him that regardless of who he bought it for, it needed to be paid for. He said Just Put it back on ebay! Seriously! So.... what are my next steps? I obviously don't want anyone else to go through this with this buyer.  If I cancel the sale, can I still do a Second Chance Offer? I've never had this happen before, so don't know how it works.  And I think it is horrible, that I cannot leave him negative feedback!

Payments question

Jul 29, 2015 7:25:23 AM PT

Buyer refuses to pay

Seller gave no explanation, and when I asked they were very rude. So I left negative feedback, then they started cursing me in email. Ebay needs some serious control over these people. Have you ever had this happen to you? I'm not a person to suffer idiots cheerfully.

Getting Started discussion

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?

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.

I received the wrong item.

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

If I need to end my listings, to take some time off, will I lose all of the typing I did, pictures I took, etc... describing the items? If not, then how long do I have to relist them? I'd hate to lose all those hours of labor!

Selling question

I feel like as a seller I should be in complete control of invoicing my customers without creating rules and such. Keeping it simple. I feel like eBay has removed a lot of that from me. I like to see what my customers are purchasing before they pay so I can ship it as low cost as I can. If someone does not pay you for an order BLOCK THEM and move on don't force everyone to use the cart. Anyone else out there feel like that?

Invoicing customers

The hour glass is showing up saying the buyer has marked as paid and he said he went through the ebay checkout and not Paypal. How do I know for sure if he has paid yet before i mark as paid and ship the item off? I looked for the dark money sign but its stil light and not dark.

Negociating an OFFER as the Seller

hi, I left positive feed back but when I hit " submit" I noticed the button was on " negative".

how do I retract or fix that?

tried to find answers in problem solving, but I guess  EBay doesn't consider that a problem.

thanks,

CM

reimbursement

I've been a buyer for over a decade (291-100%), just sold my first item, four identical items (car wheels) as ONE item. The listing came out different than I expected, suggesting I was selling the wheels individually. As a result the shipping figure on the listing was 75% below actual shipping cost as it was figured on the weight/size of only one of four boxes. I had a few interactions with the Buy-It-Now buyer (800+ -100%) who clarified with me that if he bought my listing, he was getting four wheels, NOT just one of four. He paid the original listing at the figure on the listing, and made up the difference to me. Both of us are satisfied with the sale which has been paid. Will there be any problem if I do NOT use the UPS label attached to the listing based on the incorrect costs?

Feedback

How do I add the option to give the customer the option to choose like a color or flavor of a similar item. Like a phone that can be multiple different colors? Like in the drop box?

help selling

To whom this may concern,

 

I sold something two day ago and the buyer paid it hence I bought the postage from ebay but for some reason the buyer asked me to cancel the order. I already canceled the order so I just wonder to know whether I can get the refund from the postage fee. Thanks.

 

Regards,

Xiaoguang

Can I get a refund?

Hi everyone,

 

A bit of a confusing situation here and I appreciate the help.

 

I sold a tshirt on eBay and the buyer would like to return. He was under the assumption that the item had a different print than what he had thought.

 

My item was new in factory packaging, so understandably I did not want to open it. I could not find a photo online of the pattern of the opened product, so I used stock photo of a plain white t-shirt of the same design and technology as my title photo. The t-shirt I had available was of a blue and white camo pattern and my 2nd and 3rd photos clearly show the item in a clear bag with this print.

 

The second line in the auction description states:

"Please note that product in primary picture does not show cloud design on this product. It is a cloud pattern with a white Columbia Sportswear hash logo in the center. I could not find a photo of the product and did not want to open it."

 

The seller opened the see through packaging, diminishing the products resale value. Although my auction stated no returns, I would've accepted a return if the buyer would have reached out kindly.

 

Is the buyer to blame for purchasing an incorrect product? Or am I responsible?

 

Thank you!

I purchased a cheap tool from a seller in China.  It was faulty and I requested a return.  Funds were returned to my PayPal quickly, but this item is now in my "unpaid items" list.  I'm wondering if they are waiting for me to return the product before it comes off that list?  It will cost more to ship than the cost of the item, and I'm not sure how to ship it anyway, since the seller's address is like: 敏巧 钟
童店三区8栋1单元1楼01号...   Do I need to reverse the return somehow?  I figure that having anything on a list called "unpaid" is not a good thing.  Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks.

unpaid item return question

I sent refund via paypal on the 27th. It shows as instant and sent. Buyer sends message refund is not in paypal as of today 7/29. I sent message regarding provided e-mail address. If it turns out buyer has provided wrong e-mail, whos responsibility is that? Also if she paid by credit card (I don't know), would she still be notified via paypal?

Buying & Selling Basics discussion

Hello there. I got a question about how to remove the negative feedback which I got unfairly? I sent the item to the buyers address and the buyer has received it. This buyer started blame me why he has received it to another address but I have no idea which address he meant and why if he still received it. The buyer is on Ebay from 2006 and has only rating 42. That means he does not have any experience on this website. Can I ask you to remove this feedback because there is not my fault at all and I never had negative feedbacks before?

Thank you.

Negative feedback.

Ebay doesn't offer an option for a partial refund to cover my 20% restocking fee when "buyer just doesn't want it anymore". This wasn't an "item not as described" or anything like that.  I'm planning to issue refund through paypal and just eat the 9% final value fee. Any suggestions?

refunds

I've always understood the number next to the seller name to stand for the total items this seller has sold, but now I've found a seller with the number 6 by the seller name, yet he/she has feedback for 11 items sold.  What does the number by the seller name stand for?

Thanks.

Can I just take my object to the post office to have them ship it for me OR must I purhcase the label from Ebay

Member To Member Support question

I am suspicious of the buyer who just bought my Laptop, they claim that the payment though Ebay didn't work and Ebay told them to ask me for my Paypal email, so they can pay. If they pay in this way, not through the invoice, so I still have seller protection? Are they trying to scam me?

 

Thanks.
