Hi guys! Am trying to find this old Sonia Rykiel globe and few more items - would love to add it to my collection of Rykiel items! Will appreciate if anyone can help with locating those )))
After I do this a new tab is created in Adobe with the labels, when I go to print them the first label is fine and then the rest of them are in a font that is so compressed and on top of each other.
Anyone have a solution to this problem?
Thanks in advance.
Cool looking bottle I found with a metal cap that twists to open and close a small hole in the center of the cap. Measures about 7" tall by 4" wide. The words on the cap are in German. The number "153" is embossed on exterior near bottom f piece. There is also an illegibale embossed name ont he bottom.
Is this a talcum powder holder? Something to dispense liquid? Is it missing something or perhaps part of another device? I'm stumped.
I've posted about this twice already and haven't been able to solve the mystery.
How is this possible?
What? It doesn't pick up items that have those words clearly in the title. Yet, when I add MORE words to the search window, it does pick up the items in the search results. See below.
So what gives? How come a search for "Arm's Reach" can't find my listing but "Arm's Reach Blue" can?
I am teeth whitening producer and I sell it on ebay, over the last couple days I was the TOP seller getting close to 25 sales a day blowing away the garbage chinese sellers that couldn't even compete with my pricing (sucks to be them). But then all of a sudden I disappeared, I couldnt find myself under 'teeth whitening', or 'teeth whitening kit', I had been dropped from the results as if I did something wrong, so lets go over the facts
-Top Rated Seller
-14 Days Money Back Gurantee
-1.42 Defect Rating
-Plenty of Photos
Now Ebay Analytics is very accurate and shows you your position within the search results for a given term, you can use this to track your position.
180% Sell Through, does that really seem like something ebay would want to drop from their pages?
Oh look at rank 4, or the whole page...Where am I to be found? Nowhere, I am not even on the page, my new listing that I placed says im rank 65 for a different item, its like im being purposely hidden from the search results
But wait.. The story get EVEN BETTER
I Called Ebay and I was connected to someone who I spoke with the other day about the same problem, turns out they're having the same problem on their personal account, they've said they were top seller for a specific item and that they've disappeared from the face of the results too, so I am not alone.
Ebay is not telling us something, and I dont want to hear the whole **bleep** about your rating is messed up blah blah, because the CS rep. also said 5 other people before me called about the same problem, so now I want to hear what my fellow ebayers think? Best Match Conspiracy
This snow plow looks like something out of Mad Max movies!
If anyone out there has any information about thie location of this atomic bomb test, please let me know. Thanks so much.
She is about 16 3/4" long. Her eyes close and open. She is all cloth, but the face feels quite hard, like something other than fabric. I think here eyes are glass. When they are closed, her eyelids are somewhat shiny, like plastic. Can you tell me anything about her age or name? Thanks so much.
The following is the part Im confused on

I got this yesterday from a friend I used to go to storage auctions with. He owns a used furniture store now that he cupplies exclusively through things he finds at auction. He found this in a unit & sold it to me for $50 (with another gold chrome 2 level table) because it isn't something his clients would go for. I jumped o it because I like it - but now I need to know what it is!
I'm guessing a portable bar (the glass shelves were wrapped & marked "Shelves for Bar") like a bar cart or trolley, but it's the first one I've seen that you can unlatch and it swings all the way (or 1/2 way - it looks cool either way) open to become a buffet? or long table? with a smaller lower 2nd shelf on 1 side for glasses, plates, etc.. I think.
But I can't find anything like it. Un less it has a name I don't know, 'Large mid century bar trolley that swings open' doesn't bring up anything similar.
Also, how do I clean the chips & scuffs? It is only along a edge & probably happened from the glass being placed & removed, but where the gold chrome (?) has been lost there is a small amount of rust from the metal underneath being exposed). Should I touch it up with gold paint?
I appreciate any help.
I have come across this napoleonic dresden figural scene in one of my local antqiue stores and wanted to get some opinions on what a "fair" price would be for it. They are asking around $1240 for it now. Assuming its in good condition does this sound like a fair value?
I am a porcelain novice and would love any help or opinions. Thank you in advance.
So this pin is pretty neat I have identified it have been made in the early 1900's. It is unmarked but tests to be 10k-12k. It weighs almost 6 grams. I know that in the early 1920's when they found King Tut's tomb the Egyptian revival sprung up. And some companies were setting real Egyptian artifacts in gold. Do you think this is a real Egyptian artifact? It measures 25mm by 20mm.And if it is real what do you think the value is?
Games? No computer or phone needed for this one!
I'm trying to figure out who made these pretty pieces,no marks on them. The Brooch is 2" in length. The colours are quite nice, but they don't show up very well in the photos. It has been a while since I've posted, hope the photos are okay.
Any ideas appreciated.
Thanks for looking.
The base piece is made of cast iron. It is painted black with gold highlighting. It has Patented Feb 17, 1874 stenciled on the underside. The base is 3" in diameter and it stands about 1 3/4" to the top of the bent spring. I don't think it is electrical as there aren't wire connections and the spring contacts the cast iron base and is not isolated like a heating element would be. Please help. Thanks in advance.
Get some pictures up, folks. Please no live auctions, and keep 'em smallish to speed loading time for tablets, phones, and the dreaded dial-up.
14k and aquamarine, off to its new home.
Moriah Jewelry bracelet, also gone to a new home. Unmarked sterling. It says I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine in Hebrew.
Found a ceramic centerpiece with dragon and I can't read the bottom. Any help will be appreciated.
I would like to use clear FedEx lable pouches like those below to ship packages via USPS. Note that once the paper label is in the pouch, the FedEx logo is not visible. Is this permitted by USPS? I actually cannot find any information about the USPS allowing plastic pouches for labels at all. Do they?
Please help to verify if this bag is real, and if so, is it's name Coach Ergo?
Another Wednesday, another Weekly Chat.....
Another week, another Community Outage ..... down for approximately 1 hour 45 minutes
Last week there were 2 Community outages ~ today is Tuesday, 1-27, any bets
This week we're going to have an open discussion of any eBay-related topic you'd like. Since this week is intended to be a little more open-ended, we've modified the rules just a little.
We'll open the discussion shortly before 4pm ET/1pm PT on Wednesday and will be around for the full hour. See you then!
eBay Chat Guidelines:
There have been recent reports of problems with inserting images into a message. I am using the "insert/edit image" icon. My images generally measure 640x480 pixels or less and under 200 kb each, which are the recommended parameters. But for comparison I will upload a larger image here as well.
402x615 - 125 kb - full size
Same image, medium size
994x1500 - 855 kb - full size
480x640 - 182 kb - full size
The larger image of the 1947 ad took forever to load -- yet it is close to the size that eBay recommends for gallery images -- and in fact disappeared completely after I inserted it here. I don't know yet if it will show up in the finished message. On a message board, a huge image has no advantage at all -- it simply slows the whole process of uploading and viewing, precludes any user on dial-up from seeing the image and presents a blurry, oversized mess.
One way of downsizing an image is to crop for subject (which I did not do for the 1947 ad) and another is simply to edit the image (I use Picasa) and download several sizes to your computer for use in various situations. For example, when I do set my camera to make an image larger than 640x480, I edit the image in the original size, then download versions as 1200, 900 and 600 pixels. The original (usually 2250 pixels) is great for printing an enlargement or submitting for publication (newspaper, magazine or book), while the smaller versions are better for online use such as Facebook, eBay, Twitter, a website or a message board. As you can see from these examples, a 600-pixel image is more than adequate for eBay message boards at full size and is fine at medium size, too.
Bottom line: If the large image fails, then that's a good reason not to use one here. If it doesn't, that's still a good reason not to use one.
EDIT: I got an "invalid HTML" error when attempting to post this message. I did not use any HTML.
EDIT 2: The large image fails to show up.
Hi! I'm new around here, and I don't know much about jewelry, especially fine jewelry.
I have a really beautiful brooch that appears to be silver (it's tarnished). It's covered in natural pearls. Has anyone seen this particular design before? Could it be a designer piece? It came with clip-on earrings, but one of them has some pearls missing. I feel like it's probably mid-century, but I'm clueless. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!!
Have had other pieces of lace like this and am pretty sure they were hand made. I love the help I receive from knowledgable people here, so I hope I don't drive you nuts asking about my piddly pieces of lace.
These pieces are from a set of tableware I got from my gandmother. She and my mom are no longer around to ask about these pieces -- tablecloth, table scarf, doilies and place mats -- all made with the same thin thread and fragile looking pattern. Has to be at least 25 years old, but could be much older. . . I just don't know and should have asked more questions.
Closeup photos of lace are included. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
Can you tell me what company might have made these vintage bowls? Bauer, Fiesta or ?????
The rings on the biggest bowl are flat, the rings on the two smaller bowls are slightly raised and rounded.
Thanks for the help
Anyway, back to this prayer rug that is supposed to be old.... is it? It seems unusual to me because it's flat with no real pile to speak of. Looks more faded in person then some of the pictures show(to me it looks better viewed from the side). Measures approx. 43 X 56 inches. See the pictures below and tell me what you think. Anyone know the area it was made? age? any value(did I waste 45 bucks)? lol
Thanks for any info you can share, greek38
Curious about this old set of maps I have. There are five of them and they are about 4' x 3' in size. They are dated 1945.
Tried looking around and don't see any examples. Anyone know if these are fairly common?
Maybe it's just plain old nothing but how would you describe it? Anyone see anything that would tell you an era or age? Anything will help Thanks
Good morning all. I recently purchased a huge lot of vintage and newer ornaments from an estate and am hoping someone can help with identifying a couple of them. Neither have maker marks. I've found a few that are similar in style, by De Carlini, but not sure if these were made by them or someone else. Any information/help would be greatly appreciated and many thanks in advance.

Can someone possibly tell me what this is? It measures 8 1/2" in length and is made of tin on the base and another metal (the arms, finial). Is it possibly the bottom for an old hanging lamp possibly an old Kerosene or Gas lamp? Any comments are greatly appreciated.I boughtt a box of antique lamp parts and it was among the pieces.
Very old miniature mohair teddy bear. Approx 10 cms high. Head, body and limbs are very hard, probably woodwool filling. Jointed with rods. Head isn't jointed and can't turn. Plastic orange eyes, very small with black centres. Nose and mouth are stitched in brown thread. No ID tag in ears. No labels. Sole of left foot has traces of old glue, possibly from a label that has disintegrated. Has what looks like metal staples on the joints which have rusted. If I raise one arm up, the other arm will lift too. Similarly if one leg is moved then the other one also moves. This would suggest a rod mechanism?
Was wonder if this necklace is a part of a particular collection? Thanks for all the help/replies.
Hard plastic walking doll about 21 inches high. No manufacturer's markings. Found wearing what looks like a 1960's dress with detachable collar.
This is not marked and could have had a hangtag at one time. For some reason this reminds me of a certain designer, but the light bulb is just not coming on =P. Opinions appreciated!!

Hi, I have this really nice swirled art glass vase with no signature.....
The vase is about 8" tall
I am asking this question for a friend. I am hoping to get any information on this piece that you can give me. ( Sorry not the best picture ) but it is pink and plain no design.
Anything at all would be greatly appreciated.!!
Thank you in advance
I recently bought a spotty Bag (121522011385 ) we ordered the purple bag, but when it came it was fuschia pink. I requested a return and have returned the item and been refunded, but now the seller keeps emailing me because he wants to me to contact ebay to say that the bag was purple, when it most obviously wasn't. The label on the bag admittedly said purple, but after we placed our order, the purple bag was shown as out of stock, and colour in the picture he shows is not the same as what came.
What can I do to stop this, I don't want to say it was purple as he wants me to as this is misleading.
This is the picture on the listing:
Hello I bought an item which I still see no tracking number has been assigned. The cost is high and Pay pal has made payment. I was just reading negative reviews of the seller for the same Item. What happens if this seller does not abide with its responsibility. Its alot of money.
Can anyone help ID this small wall clock? it has a porcelain face and winds with a key. The face has in very faint letters Le Roy (the rest I can't read) It is about 8-10" tall.
Looking for help identifying this old teddy. He has a partial sewn in label remaining that I can't make out. He is 12" tall, w/ blond mohair, jointed head, arms, & legs. Minor hump in upper back. Long upturned snout. One glass eye remaining. Small ears, long arms. Sad face. Padded palms & soles. Hard stuffed with wood chips. Sewn in 4-claw lines on paws & feet. Sewn finish seam line up back.
Thanks in advance. I do appreciate your help & wisdom.
I'm looking for any help on identifying the maker of this cut glass goblet.
It has a cut stem. The bowl has a half cut flower and foliage, along with slant cuts alternating with ovals on the lower part of the bowl. It has a wide, straight, subtle optic. There are punties cut on the foot.
I've found simliar shapes in Tiffin and Seneca, but not a definite match so far. I'm not as concerned about identifying the pattern as much as the maker. Although if someone knows the pattern, that would be great, too.
They stand just under 8" tall (less than 1/8" under). I have a set of 11 and plan to list them, but it's helps so much to know the maker. I'd also like the opinion of our cut glass experts on whether you think this is a good piece, nice cut or just average. I think it's nice, but I've only been collecting for a couple of years and have much to learn.
Thanks in advance for any and all help!
I have a large Barbie doll house that has been in storage for awhile. The bottom says 1995 Mexico.
When I try to let down the porch with the columns there is a resistance and I'm afraid to force it
and possibly break it. I know very little about Barbie products but maybe someone will recognise
and know the secret to open it. Probably any child from two up could do it. lol
The back opens easily but when I try to let the front porch with the columns it catches and I feel it
will break. I don't know if its because it's been stored for a pretty long time so I've tried to wash it up
some but so far no go. I have tried to lift it up and out, press down on it, even looked to see if the
columns need to be removed. I really don't think it would be that complicated for a child so I am
asking here since you have a lot of Barbie experts.
Also if anyone knows the name I would appreciate. I did see one that looked pretty close and it
doesn't seem to be one of the more expensive houses but I still don't want to break the plastic.
Hi guys! I'm new around here, and I know absolutely nothing about this type of stuff...not even sure what category they would fit into - stamps? Ephemera? I was digging around in the bottom of an old box of stuff, and I came across these old envelopes.
One of them appears to be from 1835. The rest are all 19th century it seems. Some of them appear to have slogans and pictures on them. I did a little research on one of them, and I think it's addressed to Senator John W. Denver from Congressman Randall L. Gibson in the year both of them died - 1892. None of them have their actual letters still in them.
I honestly don't know what to make of them. I'd like to display them somehow, but I don't want to do that if they're valuable as they're fairly fragile. Does anyone know much about this kind of thing? Your assistance is much appreciated!!
Hi, Does anyone recognize this porcelain hallmark? Thanks!
Need help identifying. Thank you.
d help identifying this.
I recently purchased 2 Griswold No. 18 muffin pans. Although they are the same "model", the markings on each are quite different.
The first muffin pan is made of thinner cast iron than the other. The top handle is marked "GRISWOLD'S" and the bottom handle is marked "ERIE NO 18". The bottom side of the lower handle is marked "6141". There are no other markings.
The second muffin pan has no markings on the top side, but the bottom of each muffin cup has markings that include "No.", "18", "GRISWOLD", "ERIE PA.", "U. S. A.", and "6141". The cast iron of this pan is heavier than the other one.
I presume that the first muffin pan is the earlier one of the two. I've read that there are named variations for this #18 pan. I don't have the Griswold Muffin Pan book, but I was hoping someone reading this thread might have a copy. Specifically, I was interested in knowing which variations these pans are and when they were likely manufactured.
Any knowledgeable Griswold collectors out there who might be willing to assist? Thanks in advance!

Hello. Firstly the bowl is not marked at all. It measures 10" wide by 6" tall. Nice heft to it. I tried to use google images to ID the pattern but came up with nothing.
It sort of has an early art deco look to it with the chevron spike motif. The unusual or different thing about this bowl is the the bottom and foot are fully glazed. There is no unglazed rim on the foot of the bowl like you see on most of these older ones.
Any ideas as to the maker? I know Red Wing fully glazed some of their bowls...but who knows.
Any help would be appreciated.
This vase is just under 10 inches in height and weighs 3 pounds 6 ounces. No signatures or marks. It is ground and polished on the entire bottom. The glass is cased or layered, it almost looks like a vase within a vase. The outside is textured with what looks and feels like drops of glass that were drizzled all over the vase.
When I first saw it on the TS shelf I thought Whitefriars but I am sure it is not by them. After checking it over, the bottom makes me think Murano but I could not find anything like it. I am also thinking Scandinavian might be a possibility.
Any help with the maker, age and origin of this vase would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I have not been able to access my ebay.com shopping cart for weeks.
I have not exceeded the 100 item limit. The cart works perfectly well on other Ebay sites like ebay.de and ebay.co.uk.
When I try to access the ebay.com shopping cart, I invariably get the followinf error message:
"We were unable to load your cart. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact Customer Support or send us feedback."
The same happens when I try to add something new to the cart.
When I try to acces the shopping cart via the mobile site m.ebay.com, I get a paradoxical message that says:
"You shopping cart is empty, but it doesn't have to be."
Meanwhile, the cart icon with the number of items in it is clearly visible in the upper right corner.
I have tried clearing the cache, I have tried different browsers and devices. It is clearly an account-specific problem, because on another account I can access the US cart with no problems.
I would appreciate any advice on how to solve this problem. Calling Ebay is not an option as I do not live in the US.
Found at estate sale. Black marble mantle clock with carved floral design on front. Says "Robin" and "West Germany" on clock face; not sure it's the proper face. It doesn't operate, but there is a key for winding inside attached to the works. The only thing I can find from a google search is that it may be a "Japy", whatever that is. Can anyone tell me something about clock type (if special), maker, whether original works, and anything else interesting?
Need help with ID of this pottery bowl. It has marks on the bottom. Any info appreciated. Even just point me in a direction.
How do I select the international site visibility listing upgrade foprt UK? The help files only tells me that I CAN do it to make my listing appear on the eBay UK site, but does not explain how to do it (see below). Also, do I have to do it before submitting the listing, or can I change an existing listing to include UK visibility? Thanks!
There are 2 ways to list your items internationally.
Use the international site visibility listing upgrade.
You can purchase this listing upgrade for some eBay websites, to maximize your item's visibility in search results on those sites.
Hope someone can help with this. I cannot get the photo any clearer.
Not looking for an appraisal, but is there any value in these/is it worth my time to list on eBay? Got these old "test tubes" a while back in an auction box lot. I don't know a thing about them. Any information appreciated!
Greetings and I hope I've come to the right place for answers about this Gorious Statement Piece! I was told it was Native American, from the 60's, but since then, I know that isn't true; but most likely Middle Eastern/Pakistani?? My friend's Grandmother wore it all the time. It looks like Turquoise beads and Silver, but I don't think it is Silver. Might be "Tibet" Silver? Whatever it is, it is Fabulous! I do need help so I can list it so appreciate the right Keywords and ANY info!
Thank you so much!
Hi , Could I have some help with the marks on these two cloisonne bottle vases , are they Chinese or Japanese ? 19thc ? One is 12cm the other 12.5cm
Many thanks in advance , Ellie.
I just got a ding on one of my items.. says they arrived broken.. ! They were fine when they left here.. Never contacted me or emailed me. Why are customers allowed to do this??? I just don't get it. Common sense.. Go back to the store first and left them make it right before acting on emotion!
Just venting out loud, I already know how this is going to go down
I had a buyer ask questions about an item and then infer that "it had better be like new ..." so I wound up blocking her. How odd, someone purchases the item 10 minutes later. NOT a coincidence, the item had been listed almost 3 months.
Now, of course, the "buyer" is complaining.
I won a ps3 system on the 21st of this month. I emailed the seller 2 days after I paid to ship asap, he claimed on the posting that he would ship within two days. He proceeded to tell me that he would not ship until paypal released the payment. I want a refund but the seller hasn't responded in the past two days. Ebay won't allow me to open a claim yet and keeps pushing back the date.
I'm relatively new here on this board but am reading as much as I can to find out what just happened to me today. I'm still in the dark and would love help.
The auction I was bidding on was running out, my highest bid was still in the green as the clock went to 0. I was 100% sure I'd won, since my (green) bid price was $13.50 and my highest bid left room to go up to $28. Victorious, I went to my summary page to pay for the item. And then I don't see it. So I go back to the item page and see that it was listed as SOLD for $29.
HOW did this happen? I never got any indication that anyone had topped my $13.50. Ever! So then I went to see the bid break-down, and in total disbelief, I saw some bids that happened that I never saw on my end. (See screen shot)
1) How did my counter go to zero with $13.50 showing as my winning bid price (when there was clearly other activity)?
2) How did the winning buyer who hadn't participated at all in the bidding know to bid exactly $29 when they never saw my top bid?
* I will concede that it's possible the item total jumped to $17.50 as I was watching the ticker. Allowing for the fact that my eyes were trained on the ticker going to 0, but I see that there was a bid that came in at $17 (screenshot) and and my automatic bid kicked in at $17.50, so that may have updated on my screen without catching my attention (because the numbers stayed green and there was a .50 on the end of it and everything was still green as I was watching the counter go to 0). So the only real question I still have is #2. How did this super-bidder (see screenshot) swoop in AFTER the clock went to zero. How did they get a bid in? I'm so upset.
I feel like this is incredibly shady, because I just don't understand how it could have happened. Can anyone shed some light? I'm using Safari, in case that makes a difference.
I sold a EVGA GTX 650 Ti boost, and clearly stated as USED. Took a picture with the items that came with the product. Now the item has arrived at the buyer, she wants a return because the item did not come with the cables/connections; DVI.
Exact Quote here" It s bad enough the seller doesn t tell you that the card is missing DVI connections until after I paid for it, but seller said nothing about it also missing the 6-pin power to motherboard cable. The ad says nothing about missing anything. For $161, I expect to have an honest ad or everything included that came with the card in the first place."
What should I do? When I buy used items from Ebayer's I never expect to receive all the components as it was brand new.
Just noticing I am now being charged .30 insertion fees for my items. I am not a store seller, and simply relist the item if it does not sell. There is no way the six items I am relisting per week, for six days, would exceed the 100 or 150 allotted per month.
Can anyone clarify for me what is going here?
This is probably going to drive me away from ebay once and for all. I am not paying for items to list that don't sell at reasonably listed prices.
I'm about to print my shipping label but my only option of shipment is Fedex. I'm trying to click the dropdown box and select USPS but it doesn't do anything. Before there was some kind of agreement notice from Fedex, but now I can't select USPS. Is this a bug or did something happen? My original listed item was for USPS First Class.
Customer purchased 1 item paid with paypal.
Must have decided he needed 3 more, purchased and paid with paypal.
I would like to save him money by combining the 2 purchases into one FRE.
If I refund patially through paypal for shipping will I get a defect?
If so I will not partially refund and send him 2 separate packages
Thank you for any and all answers.
Hello sellers, I am new to selling on Ebay and very much want to everything right. Like many people on here, I get my pre owned clothing from thrift stores, yard sales, flea markets, etc. As such, I have no way of verifying if designer labels are authentic or not. I usually pick up non high-end items like Eddie Bauer and Anne Taylor and such, but I recently read something that really scared me. It said that if a buyer reports an item as fake, the seller gets banned from Ebay whether the item is fake or not. This seems completely unreasonable because if a seller is acting in good faith, and goes to the thrift store and picks up a fake item totally unknowingly, the seller is really getting victimized. That being said, I would like to protect myself from any problems by putting a disclaimer on my used clothing, something to the effect of: "I got this shirt at a thrift shop and as such, have no way to verify if it is actually an Anne Taylor. The label says Anne Taylor. Please be aware that this item is pre-owned and therefore there is no way to verify the origin." Can someone advise me if this is ok to do and if it will protect me from any problems should I run into any issues? I'm staying away from all high end labels because I am too scared of unknowingly buying fakes. However, from what I am reading, even the non-high end items sometimes get faked. Please help. I want to be successful and would like to let my buyers know, hey, this is from a thrift store and I am just as knowledgeable as you are. Anyway, thanks in advance for your help!
but the red message saying "Payment Total Requested" won't go away. The red banner makes me feel like I should do something or not?
On a recent transaction through eBay, I sold a 0 feedback buyer an airsoft (toy) gun.
The buyer's account initiated the transaction under the control of a minor using the account with the consent of the owner, but not the supervision.
When i talked to the buyer, the account owner completed the payment and I mailed the item promptly.
Upon recieving the item, the buyer claimed that it didnt work. On many ocasions after the call, i attempted to solve the problem with minimal information.
After the eBay return time ran out, the buyer still insisted that the gun i sent them was broken so they went to return it thru paypal.
They won the case obviously because they "claimed" that i sent a broken item.
Upon recieving the item, the problem was a screw on the handle (where the motor is stored) was loose. Within five seconds i had the gun fully operational.
Now, the buyer had inflicted some obvious cosmetic wear on the gun and much of the paint is damaged and the metal body has minor scratches. I have a negative paypal balance because of the unnecesary and unreasonable return, and a buyer-damaged item. Also, i have my first negative feedback, first in 40, saying that i sent a broken gun and refused to ship.
What im asking for is if i can:
-Remove the negartive feedback
-Respond to it denying the statement
-Force the buyer to pay me back and for me to send the item finally
-Resolve my paypal balance
A buyer is not satisfied with his item and I'm offering him a partial refund based solely on trust. After receiving the payment, I presume he can still go ahead and give me negative feedback and no eBay rule would prevent that. What's my discourse on that? Can I message him making it part of the settlement that he cannot and should he still do that, can I email eBay to delete the negative feedback rating from my profile?
where is the best way to find wholesale suppliers for your eBay business? What is involved in buying wholesale?
I listed and sold a Keith Urban guitar yesterday. I set my shipping to be customer paid and calculated for Standard USPS first choice and UPS Ground 2nd choice. I put my weight and dimensions in correctly. So, a guy from California buys it and it calculated his shipping to be $13.00!! It totally screwed me because the shipping is a minimum of $58.00 to where he lives.
Has anybody ever had the ebay calculated shipping be wrong and if so what in the world can I do about it? I don't think it would be good business to ask the buyer to pay more shipping but I'm just about tempted to ask if he would mind. I didn't have much profit margin in this to begin with and now I'm pretty much loosing money...
For years I wanted to get into online marketing but never had the time. I retired last year and thought now was the time. I thought I would get my feet wet by starting with ebay one of the largest retailers in the world. I not going to say I'm not doing this for the money because extra money is always nice. But the drive to be successful is the real reason. I have always been a professional and enjoyed a lot success. It's great to go to bed at night knowing you have accomplished something,
My old fashion values is part of the reason I have been successful. Being upfront and honest and treating people with the same respect as I would like to be treated. I give those that wish to do business with me the best service I can possibly give because that is what people want. Value for their money. In my six months on ebay I have seen so many negative aspects of the online business. Not just ebay but the industry has a whole. Remarkably with hundreds of billions of dollars a year being spent through internet purchases it only makes up about 7% of the world sales. A big opportunity for people like us who are trying to get our foot in the industry.
I spend countless hours each day researching all the big billion dollar online companies to see what makes them so successful. Some of the things I see makes me wonder why some people would ever turn to the internet to shop. I read a posting one day on one of these big companies explaining to their customers why they are selling refurbished products at the same price as new products. They said they had many request from customers wanting to know why they did it. They explained that in their opinion refurbished items have been sent back to the factory and tested and restored to its original condition. So in their opinion it was a new item. I don't agree because items these days are designed to fail after a certain period of time so that we replace them and buy new. How many hours has that item been used before it was tested and put back on the market. I'm not down grading refurbished because I buy a lot of items that have been refurbished and have had a lot of luck with them at a savings when they are not being sold at a new price. But why would we shop with someone that is willing sell us used items at new item prices?
Then I went to a new and fast growing site that popped up from nowhere and now is a top ranked online store. As I browsed the store I seen an item at a price that I thought I could flip for a few dollars profit in my ebay store. I read the listing believing that I was purchasing a new product. After I filled in the blanks and inputted my credit card information and the sale was final a window popped up and said Condition of Item. I read below that and it said "used but in good condition" I was appalled by the fact that information was not revealed to me until after the purchase.
After I started my business on ebay my next step was to find a reliable supplier of items to sell that I could make a profit on. I quickly found out ebay was no longer a place to sell unwanted junk but a place where buyers look for the best possible prices on the most newest popular products on the market. So I began bidding on pallets of these items for resell. One lot I bought said the items were refurbished but when the shipment finally arrived I discovered the items were not refurbished but returned items. I quickly learned what seller refurbished means. Everywhere I turn Items I purchase online are not as described. It seems all the big companies are taking advantage of the buyers.
But as a new seller the word "not as described" is magic here. If you did not describe that 1" tread underneath the arm of that black shirt the buyer could use that magic word to get an instant refund or a return shipping label at your expense and again you would not know about it until after the fact. If only that seller would have contacted me first I would have gave him that instant refund and let him keep the item as my apology. I have a note on all my packing slips telling the buyer if they have any questions or concerns about their purchases to please contact us. I have went far beyond what our customer service would do to make a customer happy. I have went to the point that the buyer was apologizing to me because of the fact that they felt I had done too much to satisfy them. They feel bad because they made an issue out of something that was not really an issue and was treated like royalty and thanked for their purchase. I still called it a purchase after I gave them a full refund and asked them to keep the item as an apology.
I have to say 95% of my sells have been hassle free. Those buyers are the ones that will make a purchase, promptly pay you and appreciate the fact that they were able to buy an item that would have cost them $80 plus shipping for only $20 with free shipping. And when they see that 1" tread underneath the sleeve will get a pair of scissors and snip it off and be proud of the money they saved. Then there is that small 5% of the buyers that will look for a reason to use the magic word. Then instead of contacting the seller they go directly to customer service file a return a give you a big red hicky on your seller performance. I had a buyer that claimed I sold an item not as described. I admit when I resized the picture to ebays specification the stretching of the pixels made the shirt look a lighter color. But I described the shirt color as purple and it was definitely purple no other color or variation. If you looked up the sku number I provided in the listing could see the original unstretched version of the picture and if you had a good monitor and not using a phone with a two inch screen that you purchased in 2007 it was definitely purple. The buyer provided pictures to customer service to prove the shirt was not as described. When I received the pictures of the shirt had morphed into a red wine color. Clearly Photoshop had been at work. Another big red hicky on the seller performance.
I still contacted the buyer and showed him the respect he did not show me. I apologized and promised to instantly give him a full refund and told him to keep the shirt for my apologies. The shirt was a brand new Under Armour polo with the tags still on it. It was priced at $54.95 and he purchased it from me for $21.95 and I gave him free shipping. A free shirt with free shipping is that not a value for your money. I was trying to have a successful business and did not want any bad publicity. That old fashion business value I have and how I choose to treat people will be the one thing that will insure my success in online marketing. Hopefully that buyer passed along the fact that I took care of him in a professional manner and went out of my way to satisfy him. That is good business.
After a few more hickies on my seller performance because buyers refused to let me take care of them and chose to go directly to customer service I received a message from ebay that I was "Getting to big to fast" that they would prefer me to remain small so I was able to give better service. I could not help the fact that people chose to buy my products. I could not help it that I felt inclined to work on a listing until I felt it was the best I could do. I can't help the fact that I have old fashion business values that buyers appreciate. I can't help that my sells were tripling every month. I can't help the fact that I have a drive to be successful. I can't help that some people have negative attitudes and are out to ruin anybody in their path. That is the 5% that will drive the honest sellers from this business and everyone will be left to buy from the big industry leaders who sell them refurbished at the same price as new and make wait on hold on your phone for an hour when you have a problem. Only to connect you to someone else who you wait on again for long periods. Never to get a straight answer about your purchase.
For the past two months my seller performance has been below average. Not because of the service I give. My shipping is at 100%. I have the best feedback from 95% of my buyers praising my business. But because that small percentage of buyers find pleasure in trying to ruin people because they don't even like their selves. Ebay each month cuts more of my legs off leaving me crippled. My seller limits have been cut by 66% in two months but by trying to cut my sells back how will I ever be able to lower that defect rate. You go in Walmart and the return line stretches out of the customer service area. Because people feel a purchase does not meet their needs and expectations do they quit going to Walmart to shop.
I was informed this week that I must improve my seller performance that I was pushing away buyers. I feel I am being pushed away as a seller. I have been cut back to seller limits that were given to me the first two weeks I opened my business here. Yet this month has proved to be my best month in sales and volume. And that online store that didn't reveal to me the fact I was buying a used item until after I purchased it. They are owned by ebay. That is what you call double standards.
I had an item removed yesterday by Vero (my first and God-willing last!) & am still awaiting a reply to clarify the reason why.
The item had the name of a dealership on it and was purchased at the dealership so I know it was not a fake (unless the dealership created the item without authorization).
Regardless of what Vero comes back with I won't relist it as it's not worth the anxiety.
My question is that do I have to be concerned that a permanent listing suspension might follow or whould I have notified of that by now by Ebay?
I appreciate any advice!
It's the strangest thing.
I always like to go ahead and pay my Ebay fees right after a sale. For instance if I just sold something for 10.00, I owe 1.00 which is what is showing in my acct. I go ahead and pay the 1.00 with Paypal but yet have a -.01 left as a balance on Ebay acct.
This happens all the time.
Are we given a penny for each time we pay prior to receiving the Ebay invoice?
Some included earrings with stones, and Buyer has just contacted me saying the cloisonne earrings are not real and wants a partial refund. I emailed back that everything was sold as a lot and he needs to retrun the whole lot. I would be glad to refund in entirety, just not one portion with stones since he is asking for price of general weight in gold.
How will ebay likely respond to this? Will they require he return the whole thing?
I sold an iphone 5 for $150. I made sure to ship the item after it showed the buyer paid for the item. I used ebay to print a shipping label so the tracking information was automatically uploaded. It shows that the item was delievered Monday 1/26/15 however the sell contacted me today 1/27/15 saying they didn't receive the item. What do I do?
Its my first time selling on ebay and I don't want to be scammed by a buyer.
Ok.. I went to give feedback on an item I received that I KNOW I did not give feedback on and it says I could not give feedback for that item because feedback was already given...???? Anyone else ever come across this and why?
The base piece is made of cast iron. It is painted black with gold highlighting. It has Patented Feb 17, 1878 stenciled on the underside. The base is 3" in diameter and it stands about 1 3/4" to the top of the bent spring. I don't think it is electrical as there aren't wire connections and the spring contacts the cast iron base and is not isolated like a heating element would be. Please help. Thanks in advance.
Back story is simple: My sales have stopped on all my accounts since the 10th of Jan. Numerous eBay reps that I contacted all have their own theories as to why. I got tried of messing around with eBay so I decided to do my own test.
Here it is: I listed a fresh batch of related items about a week ago and I immediately contacted a bunch of family members and friends all over the country and they contacted more family and friends. I gave out one of the complete titles of a listing and asked that everyone pull it up on eBay and click on the link (result over 150 views, all other listings have 5 or less views). I also sent out a huge mixed up list with loads of listings for all my accounts. Everyone got a good mix of titles to search. By the way, I'm located in Maine.
Results: Only people located on the west coast and southern (Gulf) coast could find items on my primary account which actually matches my previous customers sales locations for that account. Only people located around the Washington DC area of the US could find items on the other account which also matched the customer base for that account, and nobody had much luck finding the listings for my other account which matched the lack of sales for months and no views at all with that one.
This result was the one that riled me the most...Even though people were able to find some of my listings, they still were unable to buy the item if they wanted too. They ended up getting one of two different messages at check out: 1. HTTP 404 Error in a grey banner border page, or 2. This item is no longer available in a yellow banner border page.
I spent over 7 hours on the phone being bounced around eBay's so called (US) advanced account teams dealing with limits and blocks. Everyone is claiming that they don't understand whats going on. They see the 150+ views on the one item and the less then 5 on the other 450+ items, which proved that I got a small army of people to click on my listing, yet they were unable to do the same thing to all the rest of my listings without me guiding them right to it, or all of them going right to my "view other items" link which would void out the test.
Out of almost 1000 listings all sales have stopped and eBay claims that they don't have any blocks or limits in place. After my test I find that hard to believe since over 150 people were unable to find most of my items or attempt to purchase the ones they did find. Try your own test and see what you find out.
Does handling time include weekends
I am selling an item on ebay and have someone who wants me to invoice them on paypal. Can you direct me how to do this? Thank you
When something sells, I usually hit "print shipping label" JUST to get to the "print packing slip" on USPS....I do not actually use eBay or PayPal to print my labels, nor do I pay the postage through them. I cut and paste to make up my own labels and bring to PO to let them do the postage.
However, now it's bring me directly to PayPal. Did I reset something by mistake?
thank you all very much!
Thanks, we get so many free auction style listings a month, right? If so, when I schedule items to start the next month, would they be free?
