I just noticed this symbol next to the ID of a bidder on one of my items.  It also appears next to his ID on his feedback page.  Anyone seen this before?

Does anyone recognize the makers mark on this Gravy Ladle?P1030487.JPG

Selling question

I decided to try a premium store last year around April.  As you can see, page views steadily increased for the first couple of months and then dropped off to nothing for several months.  Got rid of the premium store around April this year, and look what happened - page views shot way up again!

 

Is anyone aware of something wrong with the reports for that timeframe where the views are flat and almost non-existent?  I don't recall anything different going on with my listings during that time - if anything, I had at least twice as many listings during those non-view times as I do now.

SAGINAW, Mich. — A funeral home here has just added an unusual new convenience for mourners — a drive-thru viewing window.

 

The Saginaw News reports Paradise Funeral Chapel has installed a window that displays a body set up in a special area inside the building with a raised and tilted platform for the casket.

Curtains over the window automatically open when a car pulls up, and mourners get three minutes to view a body as music plays overhead.

 

There also a deposit opening for leaving donations, cars or memory items. And behind a door is a retractable guest book that drive thru mourners can sign.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2014/09/15/funeral-home-drive-thru-viewing/15693543/

 

Ahead is the drive-thru viewing windoe at the Paradise Funeral Chapel in Saginaw, Mich.

Could some one please help me figure out if this is authentic?

Everything seems to be correct, all the hardware is the same color, the leather interior tag, the zippers have Michael Kors on it in capital letters, everything looks good.... However, I just don't know. Look at the interior? Has any one seen an interior like this in a MK bag? You can click on the photos for more high resolution viewing.

Hi All, I was always told that this necklace was known as the D&E Waterfall necklace.
I was searching for info on another piece and found the Waterfall necklace in the 'NOT D&E' Folder.
So it's not a confirmed piece ?

Technical Issues discussion

I just got an e-mail telling me that "I" sent a payment to eBay inc. When I actually never did.

 

No idea what this is for, as I've paid my seller fees as of yesterday, and eBay never takes money from my PayPal account as I don't even have it setup in that manner, they take the money straight from my bank account.

 

Here is the e-mail.

 

Anyone ever encounter this before? I'm more concerned about eBay being hacked a while back and want to know if my accounts are safe.

 

I'm assuming this is an error on eBay's behalf, If not... then could it possibly be the start of the hackers/thiefs doing testing on the accounts and seeing if they can take funds?

I'm trying to identify the maker of these busts, or at least to find a comparable. So far no luck on eBay, or searching on google, including image search looking for a visual match.

 

The busts are solid metal. I'm thinking polished brass, but perhaps bronze? George VI is 7 inches high and weighs 5 pounds 5 ounces. Edward VIII is slightly shorter, measuring 6-3/8 inches high. It weighs 4 pounds 8 ounces.

 

There is nothing to identify the manufacturer, but both have the number 6398 on the undersides of their base. The number looks hand marked, and is constructed from a series of "dot" impressions in the metal. No hidden hallmarks or anything of that nature.

 

Any help would be appreciated!

I found this trumpet at a local thrift tore a few weeks ago. It has no maker's name on it anywhere except VINCENT BACH CORP MT VERNON NY 1 1/4 C

around the mouthpiece - and the number 1254 on the side of one of the 3 valves in the middle of the horn.

If this is a Bach trumpet, then according to the serial number it was made in 1928 or 1929 (see Bach serial number code here: http://www.bachbrass.com/legend/trumpet.php).

How can I tell if this is a Bach trumpet and not just a trumpet with a Bach mouthpiece?

Is Bach a good name in trumpets? I don't know if it was commom practice, but this has mother of pearl tops on the keys(?) you press to get different notes

As always, I appreciate the board's help!

Needing your opinions on the hem stitching of this vintage dress. It looks pretty rugged, do you think it could be original or has someone done this after market. I will post a pic of the sleeve stitching and the hem for comparison. The length of the dress from shoulder to hem is 41 inches. It seems like the length is appropriate but the stitching is questionable. Will it affect value..if any? TIA!

Be mindful if you're shipping larger/dimensional weight items through USPS.   They are now printing the dimensions you're inputting for Large Packages.  I guess it's an efficient way for USPS to spot check that the right postage is being paid for oversized packages.

hi everybody. i just found these three silver gelatin prints in a thrift store. i thought they were just interesting enough (and inexpensive enough) that i'd post them to a couple of forums and see if anybody recognizes them. each of them was cropped and there's no marks on the backsides. they're framed in simple old inexpensive frames under glass and matted. i would guess the frames are from the 50s maybe. they each measure 8" x 10" and you can see on the backsides they once had glue brushed on them but are now taped to the matting. so, i'm assuming these aren't the original frames or presentations. any help or suggestions for identifying them would be greatly appreciated...thanks

I have a necklace with a very large pendant that looks like amber (to my very untrained eye). It was hard to photograph the beauty of it but it's semi see thru, with bubbles, "chunks of stuff" and bits of glitter or shimmer. Do you guys have any suggestions on photographing this? The back is flat and & it's a "rounded teardrop". I apologize for my lack of correct terminology on this. Do you guys think this is amber or something else? Maybe glass? Are there any tests to check what it is? Please let me know if you need additional pictures or information from me. Thanks in advance for your time, help, and expertise!

The item I want to ship to China is a NERF toy gun that shots soft darts. I have done some research regarding what imports China prohibit. USPS states that "arms, ammunition and explosives, of all kinds" are prohibited. Fedex states that "weapons, imitations of weapons, ammunition and explosives" are prohibited. What Im confused about is the "imitations of weapons" part?? is a nerf toy gun considered a imitation weapon?? here is a pic of the actual nerf toy gun:

OK, world coin collectors, or anyone else with an interest....

 

In another thread, elheron had speculated there could be at least two dozen "issuing authorities" (countries, or former soverign entities) which have issued coins with palm trees.

 

I THINK THERE ARE MORE!!

 

For those with an interest, I suggest we bite off manageable pieces of the world in alphabetical order, hence the first five letters of the alphabet. 

 

Suggested rules: 

-  List your issuing authorities and the specific coin

-  Great if you can provide a photo, but not required.

-  If you are a botanist and want to challenge another poster's palm tree, that's fine, but you must correctly identify the plant, or you will be banished forever,and asked to pay a fine.

-  Please update the number of issuing authorities starting from the previous post.  

-  Changes in the rules are permitted if accompanied by a suitable bribe.  

 

I will start:

 

1. Bahrain.  I no longer have the photo or the coin, but my notes say I had the 1969 F.A.O. 250 fils issue, KM#7, and sold it to a collector in Bahrain.

2. Belgian Congo.  50 Centimes 1955.  KM #2 under Zaire/Belgian Congo (photo)

3. Ceylon.  Many coins, but I will post a photo of the 1 cent coin from 1945.

4. Comoros.  1964 2 Francs KM#5 (photo)

5. Dominican Republic.  1955 1 Centavo.  KM#17 (photo)

There aren't many people on the fashion boards, so I'm going to post here in hopes an expert can help me out on this one (GoPeterson, you around?)

 

I accidentally bought a counterfeit Michael Kors bag at a thrift store called Second Impressions, in my area.

It fooled me, and when I got it home, a few details proved to me that this was counterfeit. I called the shop up

and asked if I could  please have a refund, as they were marketing it as such. They didn't say it was a counterfeit.

They sold it as a Michael Kors bag, Authentic. The "middle man" cashier talked to her boss after I called, and the

boss won't talk to me directly. The girl says her boss said : "IF she knows fashion, then she knew she was buying counterfeit,

and it's her own fault"... IT's my OWN fault?? It's bad business. Let alone ILLEGAL to knowingly sell counterfeit items.

They even had it on consignment, so some one made a buck on me. What should I do? Who can I report this to??

 

Is it truly legal for thrift stores to sell counterfeit items?? And is there anything I can do to get justice?

WTH, ebay?
How do you allow a buyer to initiate returns on items they haven't even paid for yet?
I had a guy buy 3 items, not pay for them, and then start returns for each item, and then send me an email saying he misread the titles, and thought they were something else, so what to do.  No mention of already starting the return process.
This is the problem with the "hassle-free" returns.  They are nothing but hassles for sellers. 

Buyer wants to ask question, but ebay directs them to starting returns or opening cases, and then actually allows buyers to start returns on items they haven't even paid for.
This is like me going to Amazon, putting items in my cart, and then requesting a return label for those items.

Okay, where to begin. My best seller on ebay is xbox live codes. I sell several codes daily and only run into problems every now and then because of ignorant buyers. However, lately I've been harassed by a buyer. He claims the codes don't do what my listing says and it's a complete lie. I sold him 4 codes and after using the first one, he complained that I was false advertising. I offered him a refund and offered my trust that he wouldn't use the remaining 3 codes so that I could sell to other buyers. However, he is still using the codes and demanding a refund. He is also threatening me with negative feedback if I fail to comply.

 

I know that everyone gets bad buyers here and there, but in this particular situation, is there anything I can do?

Selling discussion

bought item # 171386987801 sept 11.

 

Listing said -  Handling time - Will usually ship within 2 business days. Delivery: Estimated within 5-8 business days,

 

 

 I figured this thing should be shipped out soon so i shot the seller an email over the weekend  to see when he would be mailing it and then monday because I want to schedual a time to take my car in to get it installed and have still not heard back.

 

Was checking to see about doing a item not recived and ebay told me this - It's a little too early to open a case The estimated delivery date for this item is Oct 11, 2014.

 

so 2 day handling and 5-8 shipping = 30 days?? listing said nothing about 30 days

 

Seems weird to me, any ideas?

Against some really bad vibes, I went ahead and sold an item internationally one month ago (I don't usually,but have done so a couple of times). Today the buyer opened a case stating the item had not arrived. I provided tracking info, called the USPS (last seen leaving Chicago), suggested the buyer call their customs, give another week, etc. (It was First Class Intnl. I don't have much hope)

Anyway, reguardless of how it turns out (unless the buyer's address was wrong) I WILL receive a defect for this. I am currently above standard, have had few to no listings this past summer just because I've been busy. I am a small seller and "I think" this defect will put me below standard (Is there a "standard" rating I have not seen?) So, do I go ahead and list when I might be put on restriction anyway or wait a bit? 

 

Selling discussion

I have more than one selling Ebay ID for selling,one of them is at risk-below standard. while the others are doing fine -top rated.

Can i just close the one which is at risk of falling below standard and keep the other two ?

Would this solver my problem of getting restricted?

Hi,

 

I've been buying my shipping boxes from Uline and am wondering if I can get a better price somewhere else. Right now I'm looking for a size around 16 x 16 x 8. They're $1.00 before shipping. Is there some place you know of that's cheaper? I've checked here but no luck.

 

Thanks!

Shipping & Returns discussion

Just wondering if y'all had any thoughts on the matter. They tell us to start at .98 & they tell us to offer free shipping. Two super woes!
Then if the buyers still don't buy it because um uh well you must not be selling the right things!
Let's face it folks we've been letting ebay run our business for us & they ran most if not a lot of us in the ground!
Just ranting .....
If all of us were selling the same thing then there would be too much competition obviously for the products that are hot.
The REAL truth is that all products even if your selling toothpicks or q-tips should sell, so that leads me to the elephant in the room.
Ebay is not NOT doing there part in advertising.
Good God could anyone of you imagine if ebay advertised as much as let's say......Geico?..
Every other commercial is a geico or Home Depot?
We' would all be sitting pretty ahhhhhhhhh
Wake up! We are not sitting pretty it's pretty **bleep** ugly in ebay land
And something's gotta be done about it...that's all I'm saying
Just a ranting

Between abusing their partners, parents and children, women commit the lion's share of domestic abuse in this country.

 

Why isn't this fact better known, and the problem more widely addressed?

 

Why do we cling to the myth of MEN as the dangerous abusers when women are so much more likely to abuse?

 

For instance, mothers abuse their children almost 3 times more often than fathers.

 

Why do we insist on ignoring reality and putting our heads in the sand?

 

Is the truth just too painful and frightening, and the myth of the nurturing mother/wife/daughter too comforting to let go?

 

Let's discuss this important issue if we can.

The Soapbox discussion

I don't know if this is the new trend or not, but are any sellers out there encountering bidders who are bidding and winning your auction(s) and not willing to fulfill the contractual obligations as a buyer?

Bidding on the same item in different auctions and only paying for the one they want.

 

On one of my recent auction, I had a bidder whom states he/she cannot pay because they've already purchased another one...

Why bid on multiple auctions of the same item if you're not prepared to pay for ALL of them?

eBay isn't a child's game where you can throw out bids without adverse effects, its a serious place of business.

 

I know what I can do to protect my reputation as a seller and my listing fees, I just wanted to know if this is something that's a new occurance or an isolated incidence.

 

Thanks for reading my rant.

I  don't usually sell books but I've got a few I need to list. I was told media mail is best. Do I find the boxs at the Post Office

or are they available at different locations; Walmart or so? I know nothing at all about media mail and didn't find the answer

in all of the questions I viewed. Some of the books are hard back and some are not; would this make a difference?

Also I have a large amount of embroidery disk (size of CD or Dvds. Would this be best mailing for these items?

Thanks in advance for your help. Also any suggestions that might help me are appreciated.

Sold an item & shipped 12# insured in a 24 x 18 x 18 box. When the box arrived at destination, the P.O. Is holding it for $8.99, due to a balloon charge. The destination P.O. states that it got flagged somewhere along the way, BUT when they enter it into their register, it also shows it is subject to the rate. My understanding of the balloon rate is that it is for items of length plus girth over 84" and weight less than 20# shipping to Zone 1-4. I believe my shipment was a zone 7 (IL to AZ). My question is, is the P.O. correct in this charge on my package, and, if so, then why did eBay shipping not calculate the price properly? I am positive I entered weight and dimensions properly into the label generator. I am willing to reimburse the buyer out of my own pocket for the shortage, but am not sure why It did not calculate properly.

Got a question about a listing. Ebay offers the opportunity to contact the seller with the question. BUT, when we try, Ebay says that the seller is unable to answer any questions and refers us back to the description.   ???????? Does this make any sense?

If I refund a buyer for over paying in shipping (because they used BIN and paid immediately but purchased several items) and I was able to combine shipping of   purchased items into one shipment and save them $$$ ... from what I've read, I am not clear on if that "partial refund" that I refunded back into their PayPal account is going to show up as a defect against me.

Selling question

I've been selling on eBay since 07, I believe.  Recently I have seen tons of sellers complaining they have been banned for selling "branded items".  Can someone tell me or link me to what branded items are?  I'm looking to move in a few months so I'm going to be selling all my stuff (mostly used games, books, movies, electronics, clothes, etc.).  I just want to make sure I don't violate the rules early and get stuck selling this elsewhere or taking it with me.  For example, I have some American Eagle, Abercrombie, and Ralph Lauren Polo clothing items I'd like to list as they are lightly used or unworn - Is this what eBay means by branded items?  

 

Are there other items that are often removed as branded?  Are there any key-words I should avoid that might mislead a customer or set off some eBay alarm?  As a low-volume seller it's sometimes hard to keep up with all the eBay policy changes that occur.  It's also nice to have reassuring feedback that I'm doing things correctly.  I've worked hard to slowly build this feedback so I'm not interested in losing it :smileytongue:  Thanks ahead of time :smileyhappy:

This drives me crazy. I'm an experienced small volume postcard dealer. I've been around the block a few times.
But I can't tell anymore how much to charge Canadien customers. USPS says one thing, EBAY shipping says
another, I can't be shipping a $5 postcard for $6. This is crazy. I didn't make a mistake - 1ounce thick envelope.
I ended up mailing the guy the postcard inside of a greeting card for $1.15 with a note and hoping he doesn't get too mad
at paying me a buck too much for postage.

The picture is the USPS website stitched on top, the bottom is the EBAY shipping page where I had a heart attack.

Hi all,

 

I sold a pair of J Brand jeans. Although the buyer has more than 100 feedback, I still had to file a case against her because she did not pay on time. She paid eventually and that case closed.

 

Now after the jeans was delivered yesterday the 15th, tracking number 9405509699938751551352, the buyer filed an INR case against me, and here's her message '"I have not received this item, think the USPS may be confused, look at everything; they picked up in Greenfield indiana? Where did it ship from? "

 

I don't what she's talking about, everything looks fine in the tracking detail. What's the deal?

 

I don't know what's going on recently, buyers have been filing cases against me and I am an honest seller to be fair. Several days ago, I sold a pair used pumps for $16 which cost me $198 but still in good condition. The buyer nick-picked and complained about lacking of traction on the sole, ended up I just refunded the money and gave her the shoes for free.

Feedback is an open forum where members can leave comments about their experiences with their transaction partners. The issues with this feedback system for me as a seller, I'm a new member,I sell vintage pre-owned costume jewelry.I have a buyer that purchased a Jewelry lot.The package was deliveried going on two weeks ago.Buyer never provided feedback.Here it is 2 weeks later the same buyer bidded and won another jewelry lot from me.She adds a note asking for me to wrap each item in paper towels prior of packaging.I don't see why she is asking me to do this.I already did wrap each item from her last,past purchase from me.By right's she know's how I package as wrapping each item.If there was a packaging issue from her last purchase why didn't she tell me if that's the case?She gives no feedback for packaging.She never contacted me with any issues from the past purchase nor provided feedback for the past purchase for me to know if the past transaction purchase packaging was to her satisfactory.Geezz lady if there was a issue with your past packaging from me please,let me know I don't read minds! I contacted this buyer before mailing this next purchase order out asking, for her to please,provide feedback for my packaging or contact me with any issues you have with my packaging so I can package this next order to your custom satisfactory. The buyer doesn't provide me with feedback nor explain any type of issues from her past purchase from me.How do I know how she likes her custum packaging if she doesn't explain or provide feedback? She "Buyer" contacts in reply to my last message to her stating this, If I purchased from you before and didn't give feedback it is because,I'm behind.Please wrap each item thank you. This buyer has time enough time to reply to my message but,doesn't have time to simply click a button to provide feedback?I don't get it!...Even in her last reply she doesn't explain any type of custom packaging other then what I already do.She know's and seen my packaging but,yet buys from me again and again with out providing feedback.I'm worried about selling to this buyer over and over again without getting any type of feedback from her. My luck she could buy 20 lots from me and 45 days later ask to return all of them or open 20 cases . I don't get it about this feedback system with buyers.Buyer have no problem providing negative feedback to sellers but,when it comes to positive they careless to provide.Why is buyers so lazy to offer feedback?If a buyer wants to be a picky buyer then be a buyer that provides feedback.

This seller got 100% positive feedback, let me mention that first. I bought an item three days ago and I payed for the item immediately. The delivery information says that the seller is going to ship the item 1 day after clear payment but he never shipped the item the day after. I payed for it on the13th and he was supposed to ship it 14th. I asked him about the condition of the item on the 14th at 2am and he answered 2 hours later and told me that he was going to send pictures. I waited all day and he never replied and he didn't even ship the item. I then sent him a message the same day but in the evening asking about the pictures and the shipping. He replies the next day (15th) and he gave me the pictures and said that he was going to ship the item the next day if I was happy about the condition. I replied a couple of hours later and I told him that yes, I like it. Its the 16th today and yet he didn't ship my item. He lives in the UK and I live in Sweden so it's the timezone difference is only an hour. I'm going to give him one or two more days an d if he doesn't ship the item, do I have the right to take my money bacl?

I sell many of the same watches over and over. These are used watches but pretty much the same condition. I also described any defects in the description. I have a buyer that is telling me I cant use the same pics in my auctions. She has told me this on a couple of occassions but keeps buying and tells me this is a policy violation. I could not find the information on this in Ebay policies. Can anyone tell me. I know other sellers as myself do the same as I do. I want to block this Buyer but she has bought numerouse watches and has never left feedback. I am afraid if I block her she will leave neg. feedback. What do you guys think?

Bidding & Buying discussion

I purchased an item on Sept. 7th, and having still not received it by Sept. 15th (est. delivery was Sept. 10) I messaged the seller.  They immediately got back to me and claimed that Ebay shut down their user name so they are not able to ship me the item I purchased.  I then asked for a refund, and they replied that because of ebay shutting down their user name that they couldn't access all of their buttons so they couldn't send me a refund.

I did not buy this and opened a case.  I informed the seller that I had done so and that if they would refund my money immediately that I would be happy to close the case and we could both be done with it.

The seller then sent me a few convoluted and snarky replies, and made it perfectly clear that they do not plan on refunding my money and that Ebay will take care of  it.

 

Is there anyway I can escalate my case to an actual claim before the 3 day grace period is up?  This person is not going to give me back my money, and there is clearly no point in waiting the 3 whole days.

Today a buyer messages me and said the package was delivered, but the package had a slit in it and the item was missing. I am a new seller and am not sure how to handle this.
