HI -- This bag was taken down by Ebay, presumably for being a fake.  Can anyone help me verify that it is real?  (I think that it is).  

If you think that it is the real thing, can you tell me why it was taken down?  

Thank you in advance!

All the Best

Dooney & Bourke Bag Is it real?

Hi I just bought a large Coach backpack in Dark navy Blue....it's 12" tall, 9-1/2" wide and aboutn  6" deep. I am worried it's a fake as the letters of the serial number are 'Big', it has a brass holder for the turnlock twist part and it also has that holder for the oval piece of the turnlock that has those little divits or dents in it...everything else seems ok but the straps may also be a bit narrow. The buckles do not have "solid brass" embosses in them....maybe because it's nickel hardware? Anyway I am sending pictures and would appreciate your help in authenticating. Thanks in advance.

Identifying the item

Hello,

I found this really adorable shirt, and the tag info seems to match up... But I was curious is this the way that this brands attaches tags or have they been re-pinned to the shirt by someone else? Sorry if this is a silly question, it just looks odd to me.

 

I know the shirt is real, found here :

I found this letter/certificate asking for a apostolic blessing of a priest's ordination at a kical thrift store today. I am a Christian, but have never seen anything like this. Is it rare? Valuable? What is it? (I think it's asking for a blessing on a new ordained priest's life/career)

 

Is it OK to list on eBay for sale?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY southernmermaid8 !

Hi everyone,

 

It's my first time on this site. I would appreciate your expertise on a purse I bought. The tag inside says it's made in Italy and I've searched the Internet for "Frye made in Italy" and couldn't find anything. I've attached photo's of the front, back, and inside. If it is real, any idea how old it is? The "vintage" Frye purses I've looked at do not have this liner. I'm having a difficult time identifying what the liner is made of as well. Thank you in advance for your help.

My Account question

Was going to list, but thought I should run it by you guys first. No markings that I can find, measures about 2 3/4". Thanks for looking Smiley Happy

I have 4 silver spoons, each one measures approx. 7 3/4 inches long.  All have 3 identical marks, a crown over "MM".  They are also all monogrammed "MM", but that looks to me to have been from a later date.  They all have a nice rat tail over the bowl, which leads me to believe that they are early 1700's, when that was a popular design.

 

I seem to recall seeing this mark sometime years ago, but can't find it now.

 

Any help in identifying who made these, when, and where, would be very much appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lee

Hi,

Is there anyone out there who have had similar issue with problem like mine? Sorry for long text. I'm just not sure how to articulate this issue properly.

 

I had buy it now auction with 2 qty and sold thru Global Shipping Program.

Buyer bought one and paid right away. The payment is legit and paypal confirms it but ebay shows "awaiting payment".

Buyer confused buys it again after an hour but does not pay for second one.

 

I talk to him and he says second one was a mistake.

 

So I printed label thru paypal. Paypal automatically linked the tracking number to first order(which buyer paid).

So I go and cancel the second order and buyer confirms cancellation two hours later.

 

But first purchase stil doesn't show item as paid nor does it properly indicate it was shipped and show the tracking info.

 

I call ebay and obviously there is an issue b/c ebay tied transaction(still pending on their end) to cancelled second order. Says the item I shipped to their Kentucky warehouse will not get shipped to buyer. Tells me I'm SOL and to wait 30 days until no one claims it and is returned back to me.

Not only that, ebay still doesn't show the buyer paid(It's not phishing and it's legit confirmed payment thru paypal and is linked to right order on paypal). Since it was sold through GSC, I only received my portion. So if I can't refund via ebay link then I have to refund from paypal but it only shows my portion. So how is the buyer going to get his money back from ebay for what he paid for global shipping.

 

This is nightmare. I lose an item with no guarantee it will return back to me. Buyer loses his share of shipping paid. And eBay won't admit the mistake or glitch on their part and just insists on telling me to cancel the order and wait 30 days to get the item back and sell it again.

 

Please see the attached photo. First ebay mail came at 7:38 AM and paypal email came at same time. Second Sold Email came an hour later at 8:38 AM.

 

If there is any ebay support watching this, I'd really appreciate a resolution. Is it impossible to make a quick phone call to GSC to ship the item that i sent? Or have it returned immediately? Why should both buyer and i be punished for something when I did everything by the book. I escalated it twice but all CS can say is "oh well you cancelled the wrong order" when the attached photos should show that I cancelled the right one which was never paid!!! But eBay tied the awaiting transaction to this cancelled one. I also said I don't offer direct international shipping but they keep saying that buyer (who is overseas) did not buy thru GSC and that they can't send it.

New to Ebay Daily Chat for Monday August 29

Found this in a box of junk at a sale, anyone know what it is meant to be. I googled Gusum and it seems they make a lot of modernist type brass pieces. Mostly decorative chandeliers, candlestick holders, and that sort of thing. There are holes around the edges at the top so I was thinking maybe it had some other ornamental crystal or brass pieces that it might have been fitted with. Seems to heavy and clunky to be a necklace; the piece is solid and weighs a lot so I can't see anyone wanting to wear it. The only place it is marked is on the chain at the bottom links and all it says is 'Gusum'. Thanks for any help, I appreciate it.

What is this brass object made by Gusum?

I'm selling a $270 PlayStation, and the person who bought it sent me a message saying that when I shipped it and provided a tracking number, the money would be automatically put into my account. I haven't gotten any notification of payment, and when I asked them for proof that they'd sent the money, they sent this:

Yet... still no payment notification. Is this legit? Should I ship? Thank you so much.

  Picked this up at a yard sale recently.  It is beautiful, and I'm curious as to where it came from.  To me it looks almost new but woman I bought it from  says it was in her parents house, so I don't really know.  Rugs are definately not my forte but it was too nice to pass up.  Any experts out there that can help me identify it?  It's approximately 6' x 7', has a multitude of colors on a variegated green ground.  By my count there's about 120-140 knots per square inch.  Pictures below....

Please see photos and let me know.  The bag is a plaid coated canvas with leather trim and green canvas interior.  Thanks.DSC09060.JPGDSC09059.JPGDSC09054.JPGDSC09051.JPGDSC09052.JPGDSC09058.JPG

Vintage doll....any info?

HELP! I just got a question from a potential buyer, and I don't know how -- or even if -- to respond. My auciton ends in 45 minutes, so the clock is ticking.

 

My lot of 5 vintage items is ending soon, and the bidding seems to be brisk. I don't know anything about the items I listed, so, when I listed them, I did an auction and put a BIN price on the lot, as well. But someone placed a bid, and so the BIN price went away.

 

Just now got a message from a potential bidder -- one with several thousand sales, so, experienced -- asking me if I originally had a BIN price on the lot. Says he's "Just curious."

 

Why would someone ask me that question? Could it be because he'd like to keep an eye on the future listings of someone who clearly has little knowledge of the type of item listed, so that he can watch my listings for my future mistakes in this category?

 

I don't do many auctions, and I don't know why this guy wants this information, so I'm not sure how to respond.

 

Any insight / experience will be much appreciated.

NEED ADVICE FAST! Like, RIGHT AWAY!

I'm noticing a trend of sellers listing Electronics as used untested with no returns. EBay definition of a used item has to be fully functional with signs of previous use and wear. So my question is are these items being sold as used untested still covered under the buyer protection?

Used "untested"

Has anyone experienced false accusations of items smelling like smoke?  I recently sold an item that was freshly laundered and sprayed with febreeze, the buyer left neutral feedback, which was nasty.  When I spoke with eBay the gentleman said he has heard of items permeated by diesel exhaust. It is so frustrating when you offer free returns but buyers insist on being negative.

So what happened to the board 'amnesty"

I'm trying to ship some items that are 2 oz. via First Class Shipping. The cost should be $2.45 as that is what it has been since April.

$2.60 is the cost for items  from 4 - 8 oz.

But today I'm getting a cost of $2.60 on all my 2 oz. items.

 

I don't know what to do as I have to ship my orders, I hope eBay will fix this and send me a refund for these errors.

I come to eBay to shop for Pokemon cards and come across many, many listings for fake Pokemon cards from China. This weren't here the last time I bought cards this year.

 

 

This is ridiculous!

 

I know eBay isn't going to remove them...so I'm not reporting them...too many to waste my time.

Selling discussion

I sold an item to a buyer weighing 14 ounces (the item, not the buyer Smiley LOL) . The listing showed actual cost (calculated) first class which to their location was a bit over $6. The buyer paid along with a snarky note stating that first class shipping should have been $4 at most and that's pushing it. They said they wanted a partial shipping refund. They said all this in their paypal payment.

 

I messaged them through ebay messages explaining to them that I do not charge for shipping supplies and that the shipping cost in the listing was actual by weight arrived to through commerical base pricing as the item was over 13 ounces. I stated there was no refund due to them but I'd be happy to cancel the transaction.

 

Upon looking through their FB left for other sellers, they love to leave Pos feedback with slamming comments about high shipping. They themselves are a seller. Is there any precaution I can take at this point? Thank you so very much! MWAH!

Suggestion On How To Avoid A Problem Buyer?

hey guys,
I was wondering if anyone could help me with authenticating this "rare" bag with a lady bug/bee with crystal eyes. Its beautiful but I have no paperwork. If it is authentic, how "rare" is it--like 1 in a million, 1 in a thousand, or 1 in a hundred and does that increase the value any. Thanks in advance.
BTW, I have a sell account, but this is my buy account mostly. I log into the other on my phone.
Again-thanks for answering so quickly last night.
Sincerely,
Kris

Fashion discussion

I'm a bit confused - I've been told in the past that if local pickup is an option, NOT to pay with paypal. That you should pay cash at time of physical transaction.

 

However, when I go to purchase the item, I have to pay with paypal immediately. What am I missing here?

 

Any insight appreciated!

Coah vintage purse

My Buyer was honest in her return request in that a dress she bought from me was accruately measured as listed.  She typically wears a size 6 but bought my size 10 assuming it would fit. 

 

She messaged me that while she measures 34 in the bust and mine measures 35 she thought it would still be ok but it is not.  Fits a littler larger than she would like.  In any event, I told her to pop it back in the mail to me for a refund and provided my return address.

 

She opened a NAD stating that the measurements were accurate but it did not fit, including the above about her wearing a size 6 and mine was a 10-as listed.  I get a request to send label.  For fear of getting a ding for no seller response, I accepted and sent a label.  She should have opened a "buyer's remorse" and paid shipping, right?

 

This is her NAD request:

 

"Doesn't match description or photos
 
Comments
I measure 34 bust and 29 waist. I normally wear a dress size 6 and this dress is a size 10, but since the item description says the measurements are 35 bust and 29 waist so I assumed it would fit. When I tried the dress on it was very baggy and will not fit. I messaged the seller through eBay messaging and she said I can return it."

 

I won't renege on the shipping label, but what should I do?  

 

I think she may have been confused by which choice she should have selected in her return request.  Did a little poking around and she is a seller too...

 

Thanks everyone!

Shipping & Returns question

Buyer told the truth in her return request

Hello everyone, I need help.

 

I bought an item, this bag (282080991620), on august 8 from a seller and he sent it on august 9. On its way the package stopped updating over a week and there weren't any signs of the package at all. I asked the seller what was happening and he told me to call USPS since he didn't know. I ended up doing so and USPS didn't even know where the package was either. The last update was on august 18 and after that, nothing else. The last estimated date was on august 26 and there is still no signs of the package. Now the seller doesn't answer my messages anymore, so I opened a case asking for the item and wrote the seller on the case that I wanted the backpack or just a refund, because even the date passed by and the package seems to be lost. Also USPS opened a research on the package but there is still no information of what happened to the package. They haven't call me with information either. So, between all this trouble and frustration I wrote to Ebay's support to see if they could help me at least get a refund with the protection they offer, because the package is definitely lost and the seller doesn't seems to care to even answer me. Well, Customer Support  didn't answer any message at all. I tried to find a phone number and there isn't any either. I truly don't know what to do. I feel so frustrated and helpless. This isn't the first time I have this kind of problem here on Ebay with a seller and Ebay doesn't do anything at all to help. I'm starting to get tired of this. I bought the backpack because I needed it for university and I had enough of time to receive it on time, but nope. University already started and I have no backpack for my notes and I have no money either because I spent it on that backpack. This is really unbelievable. I feel angry, frustrated and a lot of other things. I have already tried everything on my power to solve this issue as soon as I can since I simply can't keep on waiting. I simply don't know what to do anymore.

 

If anyone could help I would appreciate it. 

Shipping & Returns discussion

I recently purchased a lot of tamagotchis. It was a "buy it now" listing and with best offers. The seller accepted my best offer and I provided immediate payment. The next day, I see the same listing on a different account. I message that seller and asked if that listing was legitimate because I had purchased the same one. He questioned where and when did I buy it. When I sent him the listing, he proceeded to say he got locked out of his account and used this listing to look for the buyer. After I reponded asking if he has contacted eBay and that they can help you get back into your account, he never replied and my order was canceled on the account he was "locked out" of. For the record, I never asked for a cancelation and I just wanted the seller to ship the items. This is also the only item the seller is selling on his account. Afterwards, someone tried to purchase the new listing, and another listing popped up on a third account with the same items. Now, the same listing cycled back on the original account on which I purchased it. I made the same best offer and it was accepted. This time the seller messaged me saying he is canceling the order because of the first one and he has more than one of each device. I find it truly hard to believe he has 9 different tamagotchis with 3-4 exact duplicates (model and shell design) of each one in the same condition and stock photo. This seller has canceled my order and has not refunded me. When I contacted eBay they told me they can't step in until Sep. 6 because the seller has until then to refund me or ship the items. I am asking the eBay community because I feel like I'm being scammed and I can't wait that long. If anyone has any advice, please let me know.

Selling discussion

New to the discussion forum here, couple of questions.....

 

1:  Am I allowed to use the buyer's name in this discussion?  I am sure I already know the answer, but what the heck? I'll ask anyway.

 

2:  This is more of a rant about said buyer than a question....

 

So, recently sold an item and the winner bid only twice, second obviously being the high/winning bid. Roughly 12 hours later, he paid via PayPal.  Item shipped/received, I left "positive" feedback, then I started receiving emails that the item only works for a short time, (the treatments are 20 minutes to begin with), and then it needs "recalibrated".  We have contacted the manufacturer repeatedly, whom claim to have no "trouble ticket" regarding this problem from anyone.  Buyer claims it needs a new battery (though again, I have no proof, messages doesn't allow for attachments of videos or pics), and keeps claiming he "paid too much" and that he wants a "partial refund".  We received a "return request" from ebay and almost INSTANTLY an email from the buyer comes through that he still wants to keep the "defective" item, but wants a partial refund!!!!!!!!!  Most I may do other than a complete return is send him $50 for a battery.  

 

Any thoughts or help appreciated.  I don't buy or sell much, and have never had an issue before now.

Selling question

I sold an expensive item and shipped to an address in the United States. I provided free USPS Priortiy shipping with signature confirmation.  The day the buyer got the item, they flew to Ecuador (information provided by the buyer).  Now residing in Ecuador, they claim the item is not as described and want a refund. I told them they must return the item. My question is, do I have to refund the buyer the $100+ shipping cost from Ecuador back to the United States when the original shipping address was in the United States? I'm thinking there may be a customs fee for me to pay also. I suppose this may be a calculated scam and they may be assuming I will tell them to keep the item and provide them with a full refund. I've been selling on Ebay for a long time, and this has never happened before. Thank you for any help you can offer.

Shipping & Returns question

For some odd reason, I thought "Buy It Now" meant exactly what it says. A woman from Australia (has US address) used my BIN. After the sale she writes me, "I'll pay you in 3 days". Has been 4 days. Does Ebay have different rules for Buyers? I use PayPal only. I sent the buyer another invoice, no response.  Seems like every time I start to sell again on Ebay, there's a problem with a seller. ugh.

 

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Buy It Now. Means Just That (?)

Hey I am just curious, once you delete an ebay account are there any possible fees that you could get even after the account is deleted or do you HAVE to have all payments and fees completed before ebay will even let you request to close your account. ALSO, I keep hearing people say that you cannot reuse the same email from a previous account (that has long since been deleted) but i have used the same email for several accounts that i have had just at different times. Some clear answers from people who know what they're talking about would be great! Thanks.

DELETING EBAY ACCOUNT

Hi. I'm kristin And I have a couple of questions for the experts. I was buying on mercari.com this past week and came across an MK bag. I was super excited. Thought id found a diamond in the rough. Well, turns out it was stated as authentic in the listing, but it was just a leather knock off. They looked into it but I had already rated her so they couldn't do anything, Which is cool--a learning experience for me. I'm better at spotting out fakes w coach and Dooney. I grew up on those 2. I have owned them since I graduated college in 2003. I still have most of my bags and am currently trying to find them new homes so I'm on here and trying to turn a hobby ( love) into some extra cash (starting school again after the 1st of the year if God says the same). My Mom always had a knack for getting stains out of everything from clothes to shoes to pillows to baby dolls. I've also been spending some time cleaning the ones I've purchased (ten years ago) with grease and oil stains and while they're not perfect, they're a huge difference in what they were before. I haven't looked up much on cleaning the purses, however I did follow the dooney guide for the type of purse I was cleaning without much difference. I cleaned her and let her dry 5 separate times. It was magical to see the transformation. Leather is always going to be classic and I love to clean the leather. It makes a world of difference!!!
OK...the questions are::..legally, what do I do with the fake mk?? How do I get more acquainted with these other brands I've been missing out on being on the farm like Kate spade and mk and Hermes and toms? Are their books, websites you recommend besides their websites?? Do you think there's a market for cleaning purses because I'm not a very good salesman...lol I'd rather provide a service, but I have to admit I'm getting a lot of joy out of this new venture. Thanks in advance and I appreciate all of the info here!!! Sincerely, Kris

No Question is the ONLY Bad Question

Granted, I'm not a big fan of change, especially unnecessary change, but I'm struggling here.  I'll keep trying the SH, since it seems I will be forced to, but I can't get my brain to be where it needs to be in using that mess.

 

I would like to hear from sellers that have come to terms with it and how did you do it?

Selling discussion

Other than that, it's mostly tweaks and further motion in existing directions for catering to bigger businesses such as requirements for product identifiers. Also, some improvements in processes around returns, fixing Below Standard seller status, etc.  No big shakeups or fundamental changes.

 

Fees: Nothing new except increase for Reserve fee.

 

No changes to Performance Standards measurements, and more guidance about how to fix (which has e a common question on the boards).

 

I was alarmed by the expansion of Product Identifiers requirements since I am mostly an old-school collectibles and dolls seller, but I think we'll be able to work with them.

IS the site down right now? I can't log in

Just got off the phone with the eBay Support and they did confirm the issues with the eBay server via Comcast.

Site has been down for several hours but they do not have any idea when the issues will be resolved.    It's not isolated to certain areas but affecting all ebay users.  Due to the nature of this incident, I presume that sellers will be protected from late shipment defect ratings.  I did call and left my user id and requested an open ticket so they have something to prove in case I'm penalized with a defect.

 

On another note, Customer Support for eBay has really improved with quick return calls. 

 

All the best.

I need clarification on return shipping label.  I have never had to issue one and my question is....how long is the label good for a return?   Is the cost of the label deducted when it is printed....or is the label in limbo until the label is scanned into the system.   If the buyer does not use the label within a certain time frame and/or buyer refuses to return the item....can the label be voided....does it automatically expire with a refund to the account?

Return to seller package never picked up

Hello Community. We are not new sellers, but are seeking advice on a recent transaction. We received the following question after a buyer received items from us, and are concerned about how to respond. We feel that regardless of how we respond, a neutral or negative is headed our way. We will offer a partial or full refund, but feel that the buyer should take some responsibilty in their error. The item in question is eBay item number:

222220747249

 

 

Hello old tool barn,
I wished that you would show the back side door knob as I have $60 into the set and you gave me a knob that didn't match the key plate or the other knob. Feeling hoodwinked. Haven't left a review yet because I wanted to touch base with you first to make it right.
Trish

 

As seen in the listing, there are 12 pics, (7 of which show the two non-matching knobs). This is even clearly stated in the description. Do mobile devices not allow buyers to read descriptions or see pictures? We do not use mobile devices for selling, and would never make a purchase using a phone, so are unsure. We do not know if this buyer used a mobile device, but will find out. At any rate, we feel that this buyer clearly did not pay attention to the description or pictures, and wants us to admit to wrong doing. We have not responded yet, and will probably offer a refund even though we feel it is unjust; like we have to buy feedback. We also feel that regardless of how we respond, this buyer will probably leave a neg. Hoodwinked? We think that maybe it is us getting played. Are we missing something? Does the listing seem to mis-represent the items? How would you respond, and is there anything here that we could use for feedback removal if needed? Thank you all for any advice.  -oldtoolbarn

Ive been an Ebay member for many years, and have bought and sold numerous items. I had an item for sale, that was purchased by someone that just registered on Ebay today, and of course has no feedback history. They have already paid via PayPal, but was wondering if anyone else has had any reservations or apprehensions in a situation like this? And, at the risk of sounding like a bigot, the buyer has a definite (religious) foreign name, but his mailing address is here in the states.

Am I being too cautious, or paranoid? I don't mean to sound bigoted, but unless you know someone personally, it always comes across like that on the internet or in forums.

Just wanted to hear from someone that may have had an experience such as this.
