Possibly get someone to help me id this piece of pottery.
I was kinda thinking it may be McCoy
Could anyone help me identify this? I thought vintage mechanical pencil/lead holder because of the metal tip+4 slots but inside are teeny drill bits the size of sewing needles.
I've researched mechanism pencils, handheld drills, even went to a pencil blog+sent my pix+question only to receive an auto reply that they don't reply:/.
There are no markings other than made in the usa.
I was going to list as 'vintage unique mechanical leadholder pencil with needle like drill bits' but that doesn't sound correct.
I though it maybe a spiral pencil where the drill bits push the lead down but there are soo miniscule that it couldn't work that way.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
This shaft appears to be made of hardended steel and is just over 14" long. There two slots / keyed grooves on opposing sides of the piece. The other end has an attachment that looks a lot like a socket but its interior walls are smooth. The attachment is affixed to the shaft by two allen head bolts.
Can you give me any help in identifying this clock? The only identifying marks are on the back of the movement where it has 2505 48 stamped. I believe it is a space before ther 48 but a piece of clock hangs in front of it.
I am told it is an antique French Mantel Clock.
Any pickers out there have an idea what this is , It is brass, painted black a little over 17 inches long,two round balls at the end could have been used to balance, the two holes in the center of it have an inside dia of about 1 inch and has on the no 14 on it, Open for any suggestions before it gets cleaned and sent to the scrap pile,
Does anyone have any idea who this mark stands for. It looks almost like a snake with 3 little dots ? under it. Pretty pin.
Thanks for any help!
Very pretty little brooch. Tested the stones, they are garnets. Haven't tested the metal yet, but willing to bet it's silver. It strikes me as Victorian. Was hoping you could help me figure out what these are called. Have seen similar pieces to this before. Cheers!
Please help, Thanks
Any ideas what it was used for? Thanks in advance for all help.
And the reason I made you a rainbow cake is to go with this . . .
Tried to find one of her singing happy birthday, but didn't. So with a nod to Liza, Judy, and Oz, enjoy.
I'm sure you've seen this before, but it was new to me so decided it was "different" enough to mark today's special occasion!
It is described as follows:
"13 year old Liza Minnelli sings her mom's (Judy Garland) signature song on a 1960 broadcast of Hedda Hopper's Hollywood."
Happy Birthday James!
I do NOT want to chat with someone about this ad I found on Ebay yesterday. It would be much better if they would LOOK at the photo that is a part of the advertisement on their website and then took some action.
If this type of advertising is allowed now, what will come next? This is E-Bay - not Adam & Eve! There should never be any photos like this to sell an item.
If they have to use sexual photos to sell their product, maybe they need to do it some place else. I do not want E-Bay to be for adults only.
Here is the ad and the photo is attached as well. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE ASKED FOR SOME RESPONSE ON THIS....HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO AT LEAST ACKNOWLEDGE SOMEONE OUT THERE IS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THIS GARBAGE?
THIS PHOTO WAS ALTERED SO THAT THE FRONT OF HER BELLY LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING ELSE.....THAT IS NOT THE WAY IT LOOKS NORMALLY!
YouTube reivewers with a massive audience badmouthing eBay - Jun 11th, 2015
3:25 -"You can even find them cheaper on eBay, but I bought mine through az because eBay feels a bit sketchy, while az gives me a gaurentee of money back"
He goes on to talk about what we sellers have been saying for the longest, Chinese sellers being shown before/next to Americans/Europe sellers.
3:35 -"While most others are slow shipping from China"
eBay, if you're reading this, can you now listen to not only you sellers, but your buyers as well?
Let the people in their respected country sell what the Chinese want to sell, as it used to be.
More jobs for Americans, more competition since we aren't having to compete with ridiculously low prices due to subsidized shipping or sellers being manufactureres, etc.
P.s. good thing this guy isn't buying from eBay, watch from 3:00 to find out why.
Good morning everyone.
The saucer actually only has 1 star so that dates it to right around 1900 but I can't find this pattern.
Anyone have a clue?
Good morning everyone.
Have three of these. One is 4th of July themed (Stars & American Flags). The other two are plain. Are these actually cup cake holders? Or do they hold something other than that?
Any help would be appreciated.

Anyone have some insight on a solution?
The short of it I purchased an item from Hong Kong, the total was $4.26 shipping included... This item was/is eligible for Ebay's Money Back Guarantee... I should note the item wasn't packaged in a box or envelope, it was wrapped in some bubble wrap with a skin of packing tape, it didn't even have a customs form, so I'm surprised it got past customs... The item arrived broken and damaged, I contacted the seller the same day it arrived telling them it arrived broken/damaged and included a picture as well as a description of the damage... The sellers offer was to refund me 10% or 43 cents as compensation, basically an insult that I refused... They then told me to send it back for a full refund... I find the idea that they want it shipped back at a cost far exceeding the purchase price stupid but whatever they want, I'm not looking to scam them I just want my money back...
So I opened am Ebay return dispute for the item, under not as described - damaged to track the return in Ebay's system...
The seller accepted the return in the dispute and provided a return mailing address in China, not Hong Kong where the item was purchased and shipped from, I find that suspicious in itself...
Anyway in the return dispute I'm presented with this page, red highlight my doing...
At the bottom of that page I have three choices "Enter Tracking Info" "Contact Seller" or "Close the Request"
So for the last 4 days and I have been contacting the seller requesting the pre-paid return shipping label so I can ship it back, as step one clearly outlines I'm supposed to do... The seller has went silent and has not responded to that request...
So today I get an message from Ebay telling me I have to ship/return the item by August 4 or possibly forfeit my refund... After receiving this message I called Ebay to hopefully settle this or get a solution...
After 35 minutes on the phone today, and talking to two customer service reps (one supposedly a return specialist) all I did was go in circles, honestly both appeared to not have a clue about how returns work...
They kept insisting I scroll down the page and see the seller provided their address and I should ship it back, I kept telling them I would love to ship it back as soon as the seller provide the pre-paid return label that step one indicates they are required to do... They kept insisting the return address the seller provided was sufficient, while I kept explaining that the return address was not sufficient as the seller is also obligated to pay for the return shipping not just provide an address as that requires me to pay the shipping... I also kept explaining that for the last 4 days I have been contacting the seller to get said pre-paid return label... This went on for 35 minutes like a ping-pong match...
Also when I opened the dispute the Ebay message said if it's not resolved by July 31st then I can request they intervene, that is what the phone call was supposed to be, but the 'return specialist' is now telling me they can't do anything until at least Aug 2 and that I needed to wait until Aug 2 before he could do anything else, and then went on to thank me for letting him help me :-/
BTW: I was quoted nearly $28 from the post office as the lowest option return shipping with tracking, that being first class parcel stacked with registered mail service... I highly doubt the seller wants to cover the $28 return shipping vs just refunding me the $4.26, but if they are I'm more than willing to ship the broken item back...
Anyone resolved a similar issue, it appears the return policy is simply broken...
Couldn't resist this cute figurine, but I'm unable to identify it. She's ceramic, and about 9" tall. Carrying a tray of desserts, with a beagle (I think) dog at her feet, holding a fork in his hand. The base has a glass tealight candle holder. I love her unruly, curly hair & shoes. Has anyone ever come across anything like her? Or, does it look like something made by a particular maker? Thanks for any thoughts.
Is this a cordial glass? It holds 2 ounces when filled nearly to the top and stands 4 1/8 inches tall. The stem is 6 sided. It has an interesting pedal or even Star pattern when looking into it. The pattern of this pedal is ribbed and frosted. Any idea about who made this goblet? Thanks!
Got this when I stumbled across it in the back of a friend's antique shop - I ended up trading her some costume jewelry for it because she'd never been able to sell it. She had no idea on it's orgin; she'd gotten it when she bought out an estate several years ago.
I was sure it was Asian or Thai because of the eyes until a friend said he thought it may be african because of the elongated neck & rings on it. Anyone have any ideas on this statue's orgin?
It appears to be carved from one piece of wood. Could this be a real artistic piece, or just a tourist piece? although it is 36" tall on ot's own; making it a difficult piece of carry-on luggage to take back home - plus add the heavt wood pedestal & it would be impossible for a tourist to being this back home.
It is not signed anywhere.
Thanks, I appreciate any help.
One poster here occasionally regales us with accounts of his most recent finds.
Would other board regulars be willing to occasionally share an interesting coin they've either bought, sold, or otherwise encountered in the last month? Along with comments on what they liked or learned about it? Doesn't need to be valuable, just interesting to someone. On the sports memorabilia board, there used to be month-end threads like this.
So, I'll start for July (actually, it's a coin that sold at the end of June ... cheating at my own game).
I ran acoss this small Guatemala coin in my collection; I must have picked it up as a kid (that telltale rust on the staples of the 2 x 2). I hadn't ever looked at it closely enough to realize that the portrait on the front was NOT a national political leader, but a religious figure, Brother Bartolomew de las Casas. When I looked it up in Krause, it seemed to be a common, low value coin, but I didn't see any in an eBay sold items search. I listed it as a BIN at 12 times Krause and was surprised it sold in a day. OK, the price was $2.95 which ain't exactly gonna pay the mortgage, but it's also a bit better than $0.99. It turns out that Batolomew de las Casas was an interesting figure, ahead of his time in some ways, advocating for the rights of indigenous peoples in Central America back in the early 1500s:
Anyone else got an interesting coin to share?
These are messages from this seller:
this is not your free playground
read about 'eBay money back warranty' and come again.
|A seller requests that you revise the original Feedback you left.|
one thing for you:
the end of the line is where your car is at. nobody is gonna lick your ass for a looser e46 that costs 500 dollar. nobody. LOL! not even the last bottom feeder.
cheers, cool boy!
you sound ridiculous surrounded by that worthless junk. let me tell you this. nobody cares for cheap **bleep**ers like you at all. ask your local BMW dealership if they serve 500 dollar cars... LOL! go ahead, little clown figure having nothing! cheers!
you got that cheapo.you got it...
These malicious replies were because I requested a refund per Ebay's customer policies. Sellers like this should not be allowed to conduct business on this site. Before this seller I have had 100% satisfaction and constantly purchase items from Ebay.
The rude messages came 7/31/15 When I became unable to change my mind about his request to alter my first feedback.
So here is the story.
I tried to sell my laptop. List it under fix price (buy it now) or best offer.
The buyer offer above my fix price and I accept it. He immeditely send this message to me :
|I have paid. Is this your first time selling? eBay is holding the funds. When you provide a tracking number, and you put it in eBay, they will track the package and release the money before it gets to me. You HAVE to put the tracking number in eBay or they can't track it and release the funds. Understand?? Please ship express|
He included two screen shot photos, one indicate he paid, another with his address.
However, on my side, my ebay account, it says I am still awaiting for payment. AND "Buyer has not completed check out," and "Buyer has marked item as paid." See below:
I have not received anything from either ebay or paypal regarding the payment. upon carefully I realize this might be scam so I call ebay and confirmed that HE DID NOT PAY.
Plus his account is brand new, meaning 0 feedback, signned up just before trying to buy my laptop.
I insist that I will not ship until he go through the payment process with ebay, and then he insisted he paid.
So what do I do then?
Hi, I had a case opened where the buyer wanted to return the item. The item functioned just fine, obviously a case of buyer's remorse. Ebay found in favor of the buyer and said they would refund their money when I received the item back. Well, I have not received the item back and they went ahead and refunded the buyer anyway and now my paypal has a negative balance. I checked the tracking # and it said the item was sent back by the post office because it could not be delivered as addressed. I am assuming he wrote the address on it incorrectly.
Why did they refund before the tracking shows that I received it!?
I need some help with the above. I have CE eBay Import but it is asking me for the Tracking ID and Affiliate Customer ID. Some help would be appreciated.

This is from my auction lot from a couple of weeks ago. Just a little brooch 1 in. by 7/8 in. Red/orange stones; back was tarnished, cleaned up with silver polish so I assume it is at least silverplate but no marking at all. It has a C hook fastener.
I'm not sure who manufactured this milk glass compote/vase. I'm thinking possibly Fenton or maybe Smith Glass. It has what looks like a Diamond and Fan pattern of some kind. Any help as to actual manufacturer and pattern name would be appreciated.
I keep getting this message when attempting to bid from my computer or Android tablet. Android cell phone is no problem. Any ideas?

I've been seeing this for a week or so and it's annoying. Does anyone know why ebay took the totals out from the categories thingie on the left hand side? Nothing there either if you expand all categories, the list of categories just gets longer.
An example cause I don't have the right words to describe it - I had just read a post by someone saying his fees went up 5% so I took a look at what kinda stuff he lists and see
I'm looking for any information I can find about this pair of old candlesticks. I think they're probably chalkware. I know for sure that they're older than 1964, because they came with the house that my parents bought that year. But I have no idea how much older.
They are 16" tall, and the bases are 6" in diameter. Those appear to be angels or cherubs around the tops. The bottoms are covered with felt. I don't know what's underneath the felt. I can't find a maker's mark or signature or country of origin anywhere. A mark might be under the felt; I'm chicken to break the glue-bond and pull up the felt to look.
I don't even know what this style would be called, much less what era these might be from or where they might have been made.
I have a couple FDC's with this cachet. Any idea whose it is?
Hi everyone. I hope this is the right forum for posting these pics. I just found these four woodblock prints in a Goodwill. I think they're very cool, but I can't for the life of me, make out the signature. I'm really hoping someone out there might be able to help. The prints are all framed and under glass. I used my scanner to get these images. They vary in size from 6.5"x7.5" to 4.5"x3.5", so they're smaller works. The frames are newer, but of nice quality and done in Florida(there's a sticker on the back). Any help will be greatly appreciated.
|Received this message of a returned message that I never sent...has my account been hacked or is this a fishing scam???|
I received 2 emails from ebay with the same offer (see attached):
List and sell an item by July 02, 2015, and get a $10 eBay Coupon when it sells.
I followed all the terms and conditions, and sold an item before July 02. Email states the coupon will arrive within 3 weeks, which it never did. I called customer service, and they told me I never received the email. What? Really? I saved copies of the email that ebay is telling me was never sent. I asked to forward copies, but they can't accept emails. Really?
The offer was also sent to my ebay messages, but mysteriously disappeared. I didn't delete the message from my ebay, because I intended to claim the offer. There is no trace of the message in any of the folders (inbox, deleted, sent, etc.) I still have copies that were sent to my personal email.
Ebay customer disservice refused to help. Is there anything else I can do? Everything is correct and documentation can be provided, but ebay refuses to listen.
I feel like I've seen this before so I was wondering if there was a name for this. The front is lime green and the back is white. Looks painted but not sure with what kind of paint?
Thank you in advance!
Please give me some advise as how I could collect the $117 this guy owes me (for a defective item I returned to him with his consent - Seller: usjacq-z9laja
July 30, 2015
The seller is a dishonest person, or at least has the tendency to be dishonest, for merely a bait of $100. He sold me a defective SD disk and owed me $117, and he is in hiding from me.
It’s sad a merely $117 can turn a regular citizen to be a human trash like him.
June 13, 2015, I bought “Avaya IP Office SD Card with Essential Edition R8” from the seller for $100 plus $6.40 shipping. The selling price was less than 50% of the ongoing price for the similar products at Ebay.
June 18, 2015, received the card;
June 29, 2015, I wrote to the buyer, SD card is corrupted and did not work, and asked for a return;
June 29, 2015, he replied” I am so sorry that it s corrupted. I will take the SD card back.”
June 29, 2015, he also replied “I hate these things. That's why I am out of this business. I totally understand.”
July 7th, I return the SD Card with USPS restricted delivery, costing me about $11
July 9th, the package was delivered and signed off by the sell;
Repeated emails to the seller went unanswered.

This tear drop shaped piece is 2 3/8" long and is made from 1/16" thick steel. The upper mount is detachable via the hex bolt. The hex bolt does have some tiny lettering, which apears to be "YFS" or "VFS", but that may refer to the manufacturer of the hex bolt.
I have two unsigned pins that I have no idea where I got them from. Both are pretty and unusual in their own way. Could someone please tell me anything you know about age or style? I usually only buy jewelry that is signed and I can look up to find information.
1) This lovely red enamel pin has clear rhinestones for the stamen. Where the pin closes looks like it may be broken.
2) This one has both enamel, glass or plastic open back stones incased in saw tooth like prongs, and faux pearls for the stamen.
Haven`t had one in quite awhile..& since August heat is knockin at our door..perhaps this will be a fun break in the monotony of the summer!

Hi folks and cheers from Sweden,
I have encountered a problem with a seller and I'm unsure about have the situation should be handled.
A seller informed me that an item I bought was returned to the seller by local customs. The seller refunded me and wanted me to buy the item again in a new transaction. I think he/she wants to kind of restart the whole transaction or something.
The problem is that an item that is just refunded is put on the list of Unpaid items on the buyers account. I keep telling the seller that this is what happening on my side but the seller has now refunded me a second time.
Has any of you guys encountered this type of problem?
I know that it's possible for a seller to send a request to cancel an order the proper way but it should be done before the item has been shipped. I don't think the seller can make that approach now.
What would you do?
I recently received a shipping score defect for tracking not uploaded within handling time and scanned by carrier because I put my store on vacation for two days, (stating my return date) but the system still expected me to upload tracking info on time while I am away. CS said I needed to change my shipping time in my listings. I normally ship the same day.
What if I am away for two weeks but still accepting orders for shipment upon return? How would you even set shipping time to 14 days?
I have been getting spam emails from a seller that i did not recieve goods from.
How do i report him
Here are just a few of them.
Someone please help me figure this one out. A buyer returned an item to me damaged beyon resaleable condition. In the return request details, there was the section to either approve the return or contact seller support if there was an issue. I uploaded pictures of the damaged item to return and then proceeded to get seller support involved. I explained the situation and notifed them that I had provided pictures of the damaged item as evidence.
Here is the response I got:
Thank you for contacting eBay Customer Service regarding the front derailleur that you sold to “-------” who field an item not as described case. I understand that your buyer returned the item unopened condition. I’m sorry for all the inconvenience that this transaction has caused you.
I’d like to thank you again for letting us know about what happened with your sale. I admire your initiative in resolving this issue, and I really appreciate your effort in communicating with the buyer, therefore I’m more willing to explain our actions, and your options for this claim.
I have reviewed the case details and I can see that the decision was correct as the buyer returned the item to you. I'm sorry to hear you have received back the item damaged. As we didn't see the exact condition of the item received by the buyer, we're not able to verify the condition the item should have been returned to you, I’m afraid that we are unable to close the case on your favour as the buyer no longer has the item with them however please be assured that I have recorded this incident on the buyer’s account.
Thank you for bringing this important matter to our attention. We rely on members like you in helping us keep eBay a safe and reputable place for everyone.
Moreover, there are still a couple of things you can do:
Contact the buyer
Often issues like this can be resolved through a friendly telephone conversation. I'd recommend you give the buyer a quick call and let them know you about this situation.
You can request the buyer's contact information by clicking “Find Contact Information” in the link below:
Enter the buyer's user ID and the item number and click 'Search'.
We'll then send you your buyer's contact details by email. Bear in mind that, when we send you this, we'll also send an email to the buyer with your contact information.
I understand this is not the resolution you had hoped for but I trust I have explained our decision fully.

Can someone please explain this idiotlic response? I have been selling on eBay for over 10 years now and this is a first. Has eBay really gone downhill this fast after the PayPal split?
I like a Christian Audigier sweatshirt, and the Seller doesn't accept returns, unless it is gorssly misrepresented, etc. The picture doesn't show if the sweatshirt has ties in the hood. Any suggestions on how I can find out?
Thanks in advance.
So, I sold a $1200 statue about a month ago. Sealed, mint-in-box, direct from the manufacturer, but in climate-controlled storage for a few years. Should have been no issues.
Buyer gets the item and notices that there's a paint chip missing on one small, detachable part (the hair). We try to reach an amicable resolution.
I offer to find him a repair service that will handle this; I find a guy who actually works for the company who made this statue, so he's an expert at repairs for this specific type of statue. He will repair it for $50, which I'm totally willing to pay, plus shipping and insurance from the buyer's location (somewhere in the Phillipines, I think).
Instead, the buyer first demands $180 for a repair - which is an INSANE amount for the minuscule amount of painting that needs to be done. He'd complained about the price of the item from day one anyhow. I told him that I'd give him a $100 refund to keep him happy, which would absolutely cover a professional repair. He decides to "compromise" at $140.
He refuses to send the piece for repair, and instead decides that he'd like to find someone locally. At this point, he admits to extorting more than the repair fee from me: "I feel you should pay a little extra anyway as the piece arrived with these damages."
I ask him to send me an actual invoice for the repair costs, which I will cover up to $140, just to be done with it all. He's very unwilling to send an actual invoice, because he knows it's a ridiculous cost.
I call eBay, they're too confused to handle the call (I get passed around, one person thinks I'm the buyer, I get read a script, etc.), and I get no resolution.
I'm willing to pay the repair cost, even though it's not damage that came from me, because I didn't inspect the item a second time before I sent it. It's an expensive lesson, but I'll take it.
So, my questions are these:
1. Is it completely unrealistic to ask for an actual invoice from a legit repair service rather than pay a random amount?
2. The buyer admitted to extortion and requesting fees above and beyond the actual cost of repair; are there repercussion for this?
Thanks for any help that can be provided, as eBay's CS line was not helpful.
So, I made a "best offer" on an item, and gave myself a little bit of leeway for haggling. The seller refused the offer and sent me a scathing email saying that my offer was insulting, and I had no idea how much sellers pay in fees, etc. I am aware of fees and such, because I have sold on eBay in the past, but that isn't the issue. It's what happened next. I apologized to them profusely in reply, and received another email full of anger. They said they were blocking me, and not to contact them again.
I searched all over for another item like theirs, and could not find one, so I asked my next door neighbor to just buy the item for me, at the seller's full BIN price, and I would pay them back. The next day, my neighbor received a similar heated email from the seller saying that while they would ship the item, that their buying the item for me was against eBay rules and that they were going to report BOTH of us if we "gave them any trouble".
I am aware that if I myself had made a seperate account in an attempt to subvert the seller's blocking me, there might be an issue, but can the seller really have us BOTH reported for this? I mean, really, the seller got their full price for the item. If she reports me, so be it, but my friend as well?
Beside the fact that maybe the doll is not in mint enough condition, is there any reason dolls from the 1940s that were made by Ideal Toy Company are not in as much favor as certain Effanbee dolls? I have sold a number of antique Effanbee dolls for good money and am mystified why my little Ideal doll is at a major reduced price.
I have a Kate Spade and believe it is authentic. Could someone please verify. Thanks so much.
I'm just a newbie here in eBay, I just recently purchased an item to a seller from China with free shiiping cost. My question, is it normal for the seller that they will not nofity me if they already shipped the item that I bought? It has been 4 days from now since i paid the item that I bought but still I didn't receive any notification from eBay that the seller has already shipped the item to me.
Thanks in advance for your answers!
Today for the first time ever, when I am listing, instead of showing the standard default shipping fields for me to add a shipping dollar cost to, I am getting a drop-down window with probably 50 different combinations I have entered in the past. The abbreviated titles for these different combinations of economy and priority options are very hard to differentiate or identify. I didn't (intentionally) change anything in my account site preferences. Did eBAy eliminate the old format and replace it with this drop-down format? Any help on this would be much appreciated! Thank you!
This may sound like a silly question to all you fashion experts..but could someone tell me if there is specific fashion terminology that is best used to describe a sweater that is short in the front and several inches longer in the back?Would appreciate any help
Just wanted some clarification...
eBay help says a SNAD can be opened within 30 days of delivery. (Let's forget about Paypal's 180 limit, I'm speaking in terms of a buyer who will do everything within eBay's guidelines).
In the event of no "proof of delivery", how long will eBay give them to open the case? Is it still 30 days?
eBay says 30 days to open an INR case (and they mentioned it in the same sentence as the SNAD regulation), so does that mean they're going by the date the item was sent?
I'm asking because I like to clean out my list of shipped items from myebay, not everyone leaves feedback or tells me they got the item. So I'm trying to figure out when I'm safe to archive it without fear of an eBay INR or SNAD. I am very aware they can open a case in Paypal, I can't control that, it will be long archived from eBay if a buyer decides to wait until day 175 to open a case.
Can someone who knows how this work (when there is no proof of delivery available - International shipment) provide some information?
My Buyer has a non-U.S. based PayPal account - but does have a US shipping address. (I only ship to US Addresses.) He won an item, now how does he pay me? I have blocks on the country he lives in. Thanks
want to ask question below
if i have opened item not received dispute and case is closed due the item arrived after several days.
but the item is not the same with as described on listing.
can i open " item not as described" dispute again ?
Hello wise ones! I have purchased many things but always had them sent to me.
This time, however, I see something that I would like to send to my sister. (I see no reason to pay shipping twice)
Is this possible and, if yes, how do I accomplish it?
Thanks in advance for your help.
I sold an item. The invoice was automatically sent out to the buyer. I did not hear from the buyer within the first 24 hours, so I sent an email. No response to the email. So I just called him this morning. He told me that he bought the item for his son. I explained to him that regardless of who he bought it for, it needed to be paid for. He said Just Put it back on ebay! Seriously! So.... what are my next steps? I obviously don't want anyone else to go through this with this buyer. If I cancel the sale, can I still do a Second Chance Offer? I've never had this happen before, so don't know how it works. And I think it is horrible, that I cannot leave him negative feedback!
A member won the bid but never paid for the item. He has good ratings and I realize **** happens. Obviously there could be a reason he never paid. I left him several nice messages and simply told him to let me know if there was a problem paying so I could cancel the order and relist. No response at all. The process ended and I relisted. Should I just forget it and move on, or should I try to warn others about his failure to pay?
I received the wrong item. Contacted the seller and advised him of the problem and I also sent photos. Seller offered me a partial refund or if I returned the item, he would issue a full refund. Buyer wants me to pay for the return shipping. I advised the seller it was his responsabilty for the cost of the return shipping.
I told the seller that I wanted a full refund first, and after I receive a return shipping label, I would sent back the item.
I have not heard back for the seller.
Should I go to the resolution center and open a case.
24 hours ago, 3 of my auction style listings went from about 120 page views to over 7700+ within a 2 hour period in the middle of the night. Almost immediately when the 2 hours were up, the page views slowed down and trickled in, then eventually just stopped and went to normal. The items in question are rare, but not so rare they would generate that many views in such a short amount of time.
I have listed like items before and generated 500 or so page views over a 5 day span, but never anything like this.
I can not find the source that posted the links. is it possible my listings were hacked in some way? - or is there any way to see where the links were posted?
Im totally stumped
How can i get multiple sellers Accounts?
Can i operate more than 1 Ebay Seller account with the same computer? Same IP adress?. Please let me know asap
About 2 months ago I sold a phone. The buyer paid with PayPal but used a check. PayPal told me to wait 3 days for the check to clear. I did. Meanwhile the buyer sent me an email wanting to know where their phone was. I told him I was waiting on the payment method to clear. They said they were wanting the phone before the week was up. Then the next day PayPal told me it's ok mail the phone. That Friday or Saturday the post office said it was delivered to the buyer. Three or four days later I get another email saying they did not get the phone wanting a refund. I told them no as the phone was $600 retail and they had paid me $286. And I was still going to have to wait before I could even get paid for it. eBay told me to have them check around with their neighbors as the post office said that I had to wait 30 days to file insurance. I have received several nearly threatening emails from this buyer. I am very sure that they got that phone and are trying to scam me. They are not getting their money back out of me unless the phone comes back to me as I mailed it to their verified mailbox. But what can I do about them emailing me?is there someway to block them?
Due to some circumstances I couldn't leave a feedback in time (that is, within 60 days after the purchase). Now I would like to leave a feedback for my purchase. Is there any way to do that?
My paypal and ebay accounts are linked, stopping my debitcard from working. The 'unlink accounts' feature on ebay doesn't work, and paypal has no info on how to do it that I have found. Anyone have a suggestion on how to unlink the 2 accounts?
NEW! I went to eBay and repeatedly (11 times) hit the 'unlink accounts' feature...and it finally worked! Thank you for the answer.
After searching what seems like forever, found Dooney handbag, no bids except mine, which I won. Paid immediately after sale, inbox this morning informs me seller refunded my money, sent 2 emails for explanation, no reply, she even lives in the same State. How come a seller is allowed to just arbitrarily cancel sale but of course buyer cannot.
Why does ebay charge a final value fee on shipping ? I charge actual shipping fees. I don't buy shipping thru ebay and I print my own labels. I package and take to shipping point. I understand the auction fees because you are paying to use their site, but I'm not utilizing any part of the shipping services. I do not profit from shipping from them or my customer, so again, why the fee ?
I have purchased things back in 2014 and didn't get need a receipt for the items I purchased. I was recently involved in a car accident and I need to claim items that were installed on the vehicle such as exhaust and intake that were quite expensive. I was able to only go as far back as 13 months on pay pal but previous items can't been seen on ebay. Please help.
Try to pay for item and it wasn't accepted. Contacted seller 3 times over 4 day period asking why payment was not accepted. On July 30th they finally responded with this: No sir go ahead and cancel the payment I had my storage room get broke into and they took a lot of my fishing poles and hunting supplies I'm so sorry for this inconvenience and sorry for taking so long but just have been real busy with the cops and all and trying to get all my stuff back to me.
I don't want to just cancel order because I know this is a little white lie but I just happened to use my Ebay bucks on this order and I am about to lose them. Any ideas?
Thanks for the input.
During the month of Julio 2015 el Heron was able to acquire only 4 coins.
All 4 are Holy Roman Empire issues.
This coin of Austria-Lotharingen [or Lothringen, either is correcto] was not on
Heron's want list.
However, the price was 'right' so Heron added this to the HRE collection!
This coin is listed as a 1 Pfennig, copper, and dated 1765HA.
This coin is 19.5mm dia. Listed as Austria KM2001.
This coin grades Extra Fine +.
On obverse is depicted Franz Stefan I as Duke of Lothringen.
On reverse is coat of arms of Lothringen.
Some info regarding Lothringen:
925AD - conquered by Heinrich der Vogeljagder, an East Frankian.
To 1766, part of the HRE. Changing size by reduction and constant
territorial additions and subtractions.
1728 to 1737 ruled by Duke Franz Stefan I.
1736, Franz Stefan married Maria Theresa of Austria.
1737 - Franz Stefan received Tuscany in return for handing over 'control'
of Lothringen to Duke Stanislaw Leszczynski, former King of Poland.
1765 - Franz I died.
Some additional info:
Franz I and Maria Theresa had 16 chirren. Four died very young. Five
died without 'issue'.
Franz Stefan was father of Marie Antoinette of France.
Franz Stefan was also father of Emperor Jose II & Emp. Leopoldo II.
To pronounce the name Leszczynski correctly we will need assistance
of TDZ. Heron does not know.
To summarize, the history of Lotharingen is long and convoluted. It would
be necessary to study for many hours. Heron does not have many hours.
However, the coin series was apparently issued 1759 through 1765. Heron
can only guess that perhaps Maria Theresa was trying to re-establish some
form of 'claim' to the territory.
An interesting bit of numismaticks history. Any coin esspert knowing more
about this issue, please advise.

I received a package yesterday from China . It has a return address of a corporation and it has a postal tracking number . The names on the envelopes from China don't match the name of the ebay seller . I found no record of this order at all and don't recognize agate pendant (I do order a lot and after so many weeks shipping time I really don't remember ). I tried to the link to track delivery but got nowhere . Any suggestions ?
This question was submitted yesterday but I just received an error message and an unfinished page prompt so I'm refinishing the question because I don't see it in my history .
Thanks for all your help .
I get this message when I try to see my product: I have no idea why, does anyone had similar expirence and how did you resolve it? Thanks.
This listing (261987639927) has been removed, or this item is not available.
I didn't receive any message from EBAY, not on e-mail and not in my EBAY message center.
I am a new ebay seller, I sell some interesting little stuff for girls and women.
The prices are very low already. Because I learned lower price bring bigger demand. But I am still not getting enough orders on ebay. How can I sell more on ebay? Any advise will be deeply appericiated.
I can't seem to post a vacation message as I don't have enough volume yet to open a store. How to post the message please?
I never heard back from seller. Its like they dropped off the planet. So,I want my money back. Its been since July,22. How do I get my credit back?
I emailed 5 times. No communication...item was never sent. Seller had good marks and bad marks so I took a chance. I am out 22.00. Not a lot but I definately want my money back.
what is the correct procedure for ending an auction a day early and accepting the high bid (only bid) as the winner? Thanks!
