These are brass and 6inches tall and have 3inch dia base,  with what look like lions paws,   It thought at first a base for candle holder, but they could be for  a vtg bathroom fixture, I have no clue,  I ask on another forum but only one responce ,  So any pickers out there have a clue Thank you all.

I was doing a BIN on an item last night.  I hit the BIN button and I got this popup:

 

strange.JPG

 

This seller had over 100 seller fb (so they weren't brand new). 

There was a Make Offer button so I used that instead and made an offer.  Seller accepted this morning. 

I paid and had no problems paying with paypal. 

 

 

I just wonder how many sellers this happens to and they're not even aware that they may be losing sales. 

Had another seller had this item, I would have moved on.

 

Has anyone seen this before?  Glitch perhaps?

This is an interesting piece of info that I am curious about.
I bought a belt at my local TS yesterday, nothing really special, it had 7 very large and thick silvertone NA inspired slide conchos on it, the belt wasn't original to them but I liked the slides.
They are each marked COPYRIGHT 1993 on one side and TAIWAN ROC on the other, no other marks.
I didn't expect them to be anything other than silvertone metal although they do have the look of high grade silver if not sterling, but that's not why I bought them, I just bought them for the look and how big they are.
Anyway, I decided to look for others to match them and found quite a lot of them online and on ebay for pretty cheap, no surprises there.
While searching I came across this site:
 
They list this belt at over $2100 but I just attributed that to the fact they say it was in a LOTR movie and shook my head at the high price.
While reading the description on that belt it further it said those slides had tested as high grade silver.
So, just to check for myself, I tested mine.
Sure enough, they test as sterling or close to it.
I thought to myself "maybe it's because they are heavily plated with silver" so I looked for a worn spot and tested that area. What looked like a worn brassy area tested as sterling as well and the brass color had been replaced by a shiny silver, what I thought was brassy color was just tarnish.
I have tested these things all over, in quite a few areas and the test is consistent for high content silver.
Keep in mind these measure 3+1/4" x 2+3/4" and 7 together weigh 385 grams.
Here's one of mine.
Do you guys believe the results or am I nuts to believe these are high grade silver and if they are, why aren't they marked for content ?

I got this cool piece today for $25! But I don't know what it is or where it's from. I first thought Chinese until I saw the little finials on the edge of each side of the front of the top.

 

It measures just under 6' tall x 19" Wide x 11" Deep

 

Also, it has rather large numbers & a letter stenciled on the back of it - if a model #, would they make it so big & obvious? It makes it look almost military the way it is now.

 

I appreciate any help with this.

What the heck is it?

 

I do like making accurate descriptions, but haven't been able to identify the pennants.  Yes, I looked through everything Replacements has.  :-)  I've also done Google searches for pennant designs. 

 

There are 2 marks on the back.  One says "Cauldon" over "England", the other is the retailer's mark for Higgins & Seiter in New York.

 

Can anyone please help me identify the pennants?  Or, do I list this set without knowing that?  I'ld like to be able to id them, if possible.  Or are these generic pennants that don't actually represent a real ship or port or club?

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Lee

I have a nice, confirmed bracelet, necklace and earring set.  The bracelet and earrings are in perfect condition.  However, I have an issue with the brooch and I need second opinions.   It looks as if there should be a second tier.  There is a bad picture of this set in the confirmed album that shows it with a second tier.  I also understand this set is in the Pittman book, which I don't have.  I have also found an image with this brooch as is and another with the brooch that says something is missing elsewhere.  So I'm confused. 

 

I've gone over the piece repeatedly with a loups and can find no indication that a second tier was attached.  I've also done the old fashioned rubbing to try to detect any rough spots.  Nothing.  So how do I list this?  Repair?  Variation?  Don't list it? 

 

I'm sorry for the large images, but I wanted you to see what I mean about no indication that there should be a second tier.

Intresting Juliana Question for You

I have absolutely zero experience with collectable dolls, so need to know if I should attempt to clean this one or just list as is and let the new mommy take care of it? Also, sell with box even if it ups the ship cost?

 

She has some dirty/dusty/grime marks and the box is kinda hacked and dusty. The clothes she's wearing are also dusty but the romper in the baggie is pristine.

 

I'm also not sure what year she is. Laying flat on her back & tummy & measuring with a yard stick I come up with 15"

 

Her rubber body is in remarkable shape and still very flexible and she squeaks (kinda) when her tummy is squeezed. What condition should I list her as? good/very good/acceptable?

 

Eyes close when she's placed horizontally and work well. She does have a couple of minor paint loss areas on back of head, presumably from moving about in the box as she doesn't appear to have been played with much if at all.

 

Any advice appreciated.

Hello,

 

I am looking for help please with this sterling brooch/pendant.  It has clear stones and red stones, (I am assuming Rhinestones?).  It is marked, "Sterling" on the back.  Everything is prong set. 

 

Anyone have any ideas as to age or materials or anything else you can think of?  How would you clean a piece like this?

 

Thank you so much for your time and for any help!

This necklace was purchased in the Soviet Union according to some research I've done. A Beriozka is found in most tourist hotels and here's some info:

 

"Of most interest to many tourists are the amber jewelry and gilded enamelware, cheerful khokhloma (painted wooden bowls, spoons and other household objects), luminous lacquered boxes illustrated with scenes from Russian folklore and history, Matryoshka or nesting dolls, embroidered skirts, children's toys and woodcarvings -and, of course, vodka and caviar."

 

So do you think this is Amber?

Pictures of the small lot I purchased

An item I just recently bought offered free shipping and I saw the option of Priority mail and I decided to upgrade it to Priority mail for an extra $4.99.

The seller sent it Parcel Select ( I see that in the tracking information on the USPS page). I haven't received it yet but it'll take over a week to get here so I can safely assume that it's being sent via Parcel Select.

I emailed the seller twice in the last 3 days asking if they sent it Parcel rather than Priority and can I get a refund and they have ignored my messages so far. Bad sign. Do I have any recourse to get my $4.99 back when all is said and done?parcel select 2.jpg

Maker of this bracelet?

Last week-end a friend called me; she'd been left a condo in a will by a friend & wanted to know if I wanted to buy anything before she sold it I ended up buying a BIG tub + a smaller one FULL of costume jewelry! There are new pieces & sets, old pieces, custom made pieces - probablly over 300 in all. And I've gone through it all - I found dpzens of Kenneth Jay Lane, Joan Rivers & name I had to look up. But I can't make out this name - help, please!

I appreciate any help; with the prices some of these pieces are bringing, it's worth it to take the time to see whose jewelry I have!

Thank you.

PS - 1st 3 photos are about 1/2 of what's in the tubs - we ran out of room to display it all & decided we'll sell until we clear a space and then refill it until it's all gone!

Last photo is the coolest piece we found - a vintage Gucci bubble face watch!

Hi there, I have this gold necklace that's in need of an ID. I'm not sure what these patterns are called because I was thinking mariner on the link section but the middle section is throwing me off because I don't see a figure 8 like pattern.

 

The next section maybe basket weave? mesh? I have no clue.  Also would this be considered a unisex necklace?

 

Any additional help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks as Always...............

This set looks like abalone flowers, but feels like plastic and looks like plastic up close.  It also looks a little like vermeil, but is not. The first letter of the name looks like it may be a Capital P with a long stem.  Maybe it looks familiar to someone here.

I can't find another figurine of any sort with a similar base.  I originally thought it may be a doorstop or even a paperweight.  Now I am thinking maybe it is a part of something else.  I can find no mark other than a #1 stamped on the rear of one side of the base.  It stands about 5.25" tall and the base is about 4.5" long.  It weighs 2#s 5 oz and has a strong magnetic attraction.  It is one solid piece and has a seem along the center.  Hopefully someone can help me out with this.  It will be ver much appreciated.

I am hoping someone can give me an idea of what this bottle was used for and a rough estimate of how old it may be.  It stands about 6.5" tall and has no markings at all on it.  It does have what seems to be an irregular looking seam on opposite sides that goes from the top lip and disappears about one inch from the bottom.  Any help or ideas will be very much appreciated.

Nothing very special about this pin, looks to be 1930's/40's made to resemble the glass fruit salad jewelry by Trifari, etc.

The pastel insets are plastic, the enamel is cold painted.

I'm curious about the testure on the back, look to be snowflakes, all in pot metal.

Anybody seen this texture before, maybe a Czech piece ?

Hello All,

 

These cufflinks are sterling and the stone is a beautiful green - my first thought was Malachite ... but after looking at Malachite, I'm sure it's not.  I'm assuming it's some kind of nice/interesting stone, only because it is set in sterling.

 

Any ideas as to what it might be or how to start my research?

 

Thanks in advance for any input you can give me.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to be penalised by eBay for shipping something late...

 

Below is the image I get with the label cut off:

Once I click on "Print Label" it takes me to my Printer GUI and this is what appears:

I need help identifying this sugar & creamer set.  It has shading of forest green at the top, along with shiny gold on the lid of the sugar bowl and also on the sides of both pieces.  There is no marking on the bottom.  The sugar bowl is 3" tall *(without the lid); approx. 3 3/4" tall (with the lid on).  It is 5 7/8" when measured from the end of one handle to the end of the other.  The creamer is 3 1/2" tall (base to top of spout).  

Any help would be highly appreciated,  Thanks so much in advance.

835 Silver Mark i.d., please.

I am just about ready to say the hell with ebay and find another auction site. My sales are up business is running smoothly other words i am working my butt off. Last month i had a few returns 4 different items buyers decided they didn't like them. 1 even stated in return no what they expected it looks like a nightgown. It looked like it did in the pictures when you bid on it. I honestly don't know if they thought they buy this ugly dress and by time it reaches them it would magically transform into a Cinderella gown. And 4 more items didn't fit the buyer. How is this my fault. Why does ebay hold this against me??? When i called the lady on the phone told me it is ok you are still well above standard. Above standard doesn't give me a 20% DISCOUNT on my 300 dollar a month ebay bill now does it. What if anything can i do to keep this from happening.

Selling discussion

Hi friends,

 

I reported a buyer who left a negative feedback as a revenge because I refunded his money as the item was out of stock... Ebay do nothing with this cases. Sellers are defenseless from buyer that use feedback as a punishment. How can we protect ourselves?. I need help.

Selling discussion

Top Rated Seller Return Policy Violation: I purchased from a top rated seller that showed they accepted returns. The item was too large so I was willing to pay return shipping for an exchange for a smaller size. He didn't have a smaller size so I requested a refund. He then stated he doesn't accept returns. The "report item" link doesn't have an option to report issues on a top rated seller not accepteding a return.

 

I have since come across two other Top Rated Sellers that show they accept returns but all three sellers have in their descriptions:

  • All sales are final - unless I make a mistake, then I'll be happy to work something out.
  • DUE TO HYGIENIC ISSUES, IT IS NOT RETURNABLE.

    NO REFUNDS!!!

  • As the listing states, you have 14 days to return this item.  But returns are accepted only under the condition of misrepresentation. Please read the description and look at the pictures carefully. I am very thorough in describing and photographing my items so buyers will know exactly what they are receiving.  If you have any questions, please ask first before bidding. Please consider these conditions carefully before deciding to bid. Thank you very much.

Top Rated Seller Return Policy Violation

   I sent a very polite offer to buy an item from a Seller after an auction ended with no bids.  The Seller replied with a nasty, sarcastic message.  When I responded that the sarcasm was uncalled for, I received an even nastier reply (despite the fact that I'd added this member to my Blocked List).

   I'd like to know what steps can be taken --by myself or eBay-- when a member has sent rude, sarcastic and insulting messages through eBay mail.

How to deal with rude, insulting messages

Hi everybody!

 

I'm pretty much brand spanking new to selling things here. This listing I'm referring to is actually my first listing ever.

 

I know about the Best Offer feature, but I don't really know much about etiquette when it comes to it.

 

How exactly should I reply when someone, instead of using the feature to submit an offer, asks ME what MY best offer is on my own item?

 

For reference, they asked "What's your best price if I can take them all?"

 

It just comes off as really weird to me. Shouldn't they be the ones making an offer to me?

 

Sorry if this is a dumb question at all; I'm just confused and don't want to scare off a potential buyer.

 

Thanks ahead of time!

The sender of this payment is Unregistered

Hi, 

 

   So I purchased an item (Motorcycle brake/clutch levers) back in January. This item came in different colors, so as mentioned in the listing I wrote the color I wanted in the order info when purchasing it. I chose the color black.

 

  When I received the item and opened the package I noticed that it was blue instead of black.

  I immediately contacted the seller informing him of this. There was a lot of back and forth messages in which he replied several times saying that "it's just a color", trying to convince me to just keep the item. After he realized I was having none of it he procedeed to offer me a 4 AUD refund on an item that cost more than 20 AUD.

 

  I insisted that I wanted either a full refund or the item in the color I ordererd, he then replied saying that he was shipping a new one in the proper color.

  It's now almost 2 months since he said he shipped it and I haven't received it. I'm pretty sure he never shipped anything and was just waiting so the feedback window would expire and I couldn't give him a bad feedback (something he repeatedly insisted I shouldn't do until I received the new item).

 

  I contacted him once more, saying that it has been too long and the item didn't arrive, to which he just replied asking me to wait longer.

  Tired of this I tried opening a claim with eBay, to my surprise I couldn't find the item in my purchase history. After going through the resolution suggestions, etc. Ebay gave me the option of opening a return request, which I did.

   In this process it clearly states that the seller pays for the shipping of the return, I asked the seller for the return shipping label (something I guess has to be done in order to advance that process to Step 2) and he replied saying he wouldn't pay for the shipping costs. Nothing else, no further communication.

 

   I have twice sent an e-mail to eBay support (which states I would receive a reply in 24 hours) asking for help on this matter and never got any reply.

 

  At this point I'm just fed up and don't even care about the money or the item anymore, I would just, at the very least, like to be able to leave proper feedback about this experience on the seller's feedback so that other customers can be aware. But unfortunately I don't see anyway I can do this.

 

  Any help would be appreciated it, if not then at least I vent my frustration with this whole mess.

 

   Regards,

 

             Romeu Rosa

Ebay sent me a message that states they removed an item I was selling. They said it has similarities of another item I sold that resulted in a bad buying experience, such as complaints from buyers that the item is of poor quality. If this is true, why did I not receive any complaints from the buyers or Ebay prior to my item being removed? The reason I re-list this item is because I have many of the same item, and as far as I know all of my buyers are happy with their order. Please help. Janet

Ebay removed an item I was selling...

How can I get my $24.90 back?  

 

I listed 2 items. someone bid on one of the items, but never paid. I tried communicating with the "buyer" but they never responded. After several attempts, I quit trying and quit trying to sell on Ebay because I failed.  

 

However I was charged $24.90.

 

I cannot afford to pay when it didn't work for me.

 

 

Getting Started question

This is a bit of a long story but please bear with me.

 

On April 1st, an unauthorized charge was made to my Paypal account. This came from a company which automatically renewed my subscription to a service I wanted to cancel, without asking for my opinion. They never replied to my query so I disputed the payment with Paypal.

 

On April 3, I made a purchase from an eBay seller who I buy from often and have for years. We have a very friendly relationship and I usually buy one item per week. He then puts my purchase away until the next week so that he can combine shipping on two items. This is what he did on that day.

 

On April 7, Paypal ruled in my favor and reversed the unauthorized charge.

 

On April 10, I purchased a second item and waited for the seller's invoice like I always do.

 

I received the invoice on April 11 but when I tried to pay, I couldn't. My account was "restricted" due, I presume, to the events surrounding the unauthorized charge.

 

On April 12, a case was opened against me by eBay's automatic thingy for the April 3 purchase. I contacted the seller, who said that if I was still unable to pay by Tuesday (April 14), he would simply ask for a cancellation of the sale so that I would not be penalized.  I received that request yesterday evening and haven't yet acted on it.

 

This morning, I received a message from Paypal saying that the review of my account was completed and my account is no longer restricted.

 

So my question is, can I pay my seller's original invoice? He still wants to sell both items to me and I still want to purchase them. He was going to relist the cancelled one at a later time to give me a chance to buy it again. I want to do the right thing for the both of us and avoid him getting a defect over this, if at all possible.

 

Any help to get out of this mess would be very much appreciated.

I have a buyer bought six items in one order. I normally send via First Class mail, however, the six items will weigh more than the max limit for a First Class shipment, so I'd like to split the order up into two shipments instead. But... Since all the items were ordered at the same time, there's only one "Print shipping label" button. 

 

Any suggestions?

How to split one order into 2 shipments?

just got a mail from ebay, buyer asking to return an item, reason "I found a better price elsewhere".

Of course I accept the return, and said so.

My question, before I mess up anything:

Will there be a defect  once I refund buyer? Of course I will wait until I have the returned item, before I do so.

I have had a refund once before, but buyer did not  go through ebay return, -so I refunded through my second pp account, and there was no defect.

I received an email through ebay's system from an ebay member asking why his paypal payment was refunded.  Only he was not bidding nor did he win the auction (or any auction of mine) that he messaged me through.  

 

Why would someone send me an email saying their paypal payment had been refunded.  It's all obviously false.

 

 

He has 288 positive feedbacks and has been a member since 2001.

 

I did not want to respond for fear he would somehow get my email address.

So I bought some shoes off of eBay from a seller who has a good reputation, I bought them April 12th and the estimated delivery was April 13th to April 16th because its only one city away (around 30 minutes away). Its April 16th (Priority 1-day) and the tracking still says shipping label created April 14th 9405509699938367494401 <-- Tracking. Seller hasn't responded to any of my messages I think he made a label and it could be in the back of his car for all I know. Can anybody help? Should I wait a couple more days? File a claim? I'm just worried. My brother ordered his shoes from ChampsSports all the way from Montana to California and got here in three days Priority 2-day. What do I do? I apologize in advance for my sentences being all over the place, I'm just ranting.

What should I do?

I bought something that came in a completely different color than the one pictured.  It was this color in the picture and it came in jet black.  (I can't show you seller's picture here, it's against the rules)

 

I appealed to eBay and they ruled in the seller's favor even though I sent them side-by-side pictures of the seller's picture and a picture of the actual item.  They said that because the seller didn't WRITE in the DESCRIPTION that the item was blue then he did not send something "not as described".   (They get people complaining about minor shade differences)  Well this wasn't minor!

 

But Praise the Lord for PayPal!  If you buy anything and pay for it through PayPal the seller HAS TO TAKE IT BACK for any reason whatsoever.  Even if you don't want it anymore!!!  Part of being a seller and doing business with PayPal is agreeing to take back and refund the buyer for anything they buy from you.   YAY~~~  

 

So ship it back with a tracking number.  File a claim with PayPal and PayPal won't let him get ANY of YOUR MONEY out of his account until he refunds you.  THEY LOCK UP HIS ACCOUNT FOR THE AMOUNT HE OWES YOU!!!

 

I've had it done to me.  When Paypal locks up your account, you can still sell and you can still receive money and I think you can withdraw funds in excess of the refund you owe but it's really a pain and he's a big time seller and owes me $149.70.

 

I'm having a really good day.

Hello guys,

I've bought two pieces of TAZA iron meteorite from ebay on Jun 12, 2014, yes I know it is a time ago.

I didn't receive the items in the first several weeks, and i contact the seller several times, but both of us have no idea about that because the pack can not be track in China.

I also contacted the local post office many times and go to the window to ask for a search, but no result.

Finally, I thought that the pack was missed and i gave it up.

 

But on Oct. 24 2014, I receive a message from seller that the pack was found on the doorstep of his hause, he said that he would resend to me and i must pay the cost.

 

I anaswerd the message with my new address ( to reduce the risk of missing ), but i didn't get an answer.

 

serveral weeks later, I send another message to the seller, ask if he received my message and hope he can resend the pack to me and i would pay the cost, but still no answer.

 

Yesterday, I did the same thing again.

 

I don't know if the seller can receive the message from me, and I don't know what should I do to get the items or money back.

 

Can anybody help and tell me what can I do?

 

Thank you very much.

Selling question

I just had my best selling listing removed thanks to copyright violation. 

 

171735010940 - YAMAHA PRO FISHING NECK GAITER FISHING BUFF CRP-14NFB-BL-NS

 

The violation was from a company named Buff who up until this morning I didn't know existed. The item I was selling was a neck gaiter also known as a buff. 

 

I sell the both the Yamaha and the Hoorag versions of this product, 

 

Ebay removed every trace of that listing, even the 4 that I had sold this morning on my Sold page. 

 

What's irritated me the most was the listing's count of how many of the item i've sold which was close to 50. 

 

I would've gladly changed it had they simply asked, instead of just destroying every trace of the listing. 

 

I understand why they did it but I think it could've been done differently.

So I bought an item digital copy which I should received via email. And the hint is pretty simply - just make the delivery as long as possible like only delivering into US when you are in Europe and vice versa. The delivery dates are hidden and after you have paid for it you will just get the information that he needs 35 days to send an email. Great Buyer protection! Can't even open dispute on paypal because I've used this garbage site to pay with it. Which means you have to wait whole month "beucase the items can be still on their way".

Selling question

Sold an auto part and shipped priority mail through USPS, tracking showed delivered but buyer said he did not receive it. Did as much checking as i could at USPS and had several email contacts with buyer and even one long phone conversation with him. He opened a request case and i encouraged him to do so in order for both of us could understand what happened here. The only point of contention where i can see me the seller as being at fault is that i hand typed the shipping label and put his address as Avenue and he lives on a Street, everything else was correct, correct address number, correct city, correct state, correct zip code and of course street name, just that Avenue and not Street was typed as the address. But even had i printed his label off the paypal page and bought postage online it shows Avenue. I explained that to the buyer but he insisted it's Street, which indeed he lives on a Street. In conclusion after talking to him on the phone it was my personal feeling he was an honest person and i know i am very honest so i refunded him the full purchase price plus shipping cost. I should add that in my conversation with the buyer he told of incidents where he has had property stolen from him out of a garage located very closely to his home. So my question is do i have any recourse through ebay as a seller to recover my loss?, i am trying for some resolve through USPS because the priority package is insured, but then again it does show delivered and i don't know what more they can do for me. Any opinions or answers to what next step i should or could take is welcomed. Don

It's been awhile since I've managed an eBay account, about 5 years. Now I'm back in the business and I would like to add a note to my buyers for specific listings. I used to be able to revise a listing and add a note to the buyer. Then during checkout there would be additional information + instructions that would also print on the packing slip/invoice. This was a helpful tool for services I offered and I cant figure it out. 

 

I can create a note to myself that the buyer cannot see but that is not my goal here. Hopefully someone can help! Happy Friday!

Buying & Selling Basics question

Hi to anyone reading:

My question is for the following issue: I try to be fair & leave positive feedback for all the successful purchases I've made but I am having the issue that for a couple of the items the Ebay site does not allow me the option of leaving feedback. When I click the "Leave Feedback" button option I get the following basic error message stating "We are unable to add your feedback for 1 transaction Here's why (Item #) was not found because: This item number does not exist Or you have already left feedback" But the problem is that I haven't left feedback. Why am I getting this error message & What can I do to resolve or work around it or is it just an un-resolvable occasional glitch in the system?

I don't know if this is of any relevancy but further information is that both purchases that I've attempted feedback for & was unable to were both overseas purchases & arrived slightly later than the latest anticipated shipping arrival date: so could that be the cut off time period limit that you're allowed to leave feedback? And another problem is that I am having the technical issue of being unable to view my complete purchase history of the past "2015" year or past "60 days" (I'm missing the whole month of February purchases showing in the history) option so I don't know if this is symptomatic of a larger issue? Thank-you in advance for anyone who has any information or potential fixes to my problem.

FeedBack Question

I bought a replacement for my Samsung TV and I clarified the seller that I had to guarantee a specific date for delivery and he replied that there was no problem and that by that time my replacement would arrive. In those days there was a storm in New York and obviously all shipments delayed and never got the parts. I contacted the seller again and indicated a new direction and gave me a number to track the shipment and call the person who was to receive the spare told me he had not arrived. Again I contacted the seller but this time did not answer me and I had to place a negative note to respond to me and told me to refund my money whenever I withdraw the negative rating, ie extorcionarme started. The game was easy, stop spending 30 days not refund my money. Until today I could not get the money and since you do?

eBay International AG ????

One seller has listed an incorrect, or not possible item.  I tried to ask the seller a question to make sure I am not wacked out but they have blocked or turned off questions.  The issue is that most fruit trees are grafted to produce dwarf plants.  This seller is successfully selling "dwarf tree" seeds, probably obtained from a dwarf tree they purchased.  The seeds will not produce dwarf plants, no matter how loud and often they state it will.  I expect that the seller isn't attempting to con buyers, rather is just ignorant and stating multiple fraudulent facts.  There is no option in the report item that applies to a situation like this, where the described item doesn't possibly exist in the form described.  It seems that the only way eBay provides to address this situation is after purchase, allowing countless unknowing buyers to be cheated.

 

Any suggestions on how to get eBay to make this seller correct their listing (or block/ban it?)

 

 

Thanks!!!

How best to safely package (wrap) hardcover books without buying $2.00 bubble bags?  I know to ship Media Mail, but how best to wrap is my question.  Would bubble wrap and brown paper be safe for the book edges?  Thank you.

How best to safely package hardcover books?

Hi all - I have a buyer who bid on my item on Monday and requested a transaction cancellation four minutes after the auction closed tonight.  He (she?) was the only bidder, so I would have had to relist the item anyway.  This is a $5.00 item, so it's not like I'm going to be out of a ton of money.  However, by bidding, the buyer entered into a binding contract to purchase the item from me, and in my mind, they should pay for it.  I don't want to be a hard *** but buying a similar item somewhere else is not a valid reason to cancel a transaction.  As far as I'm concerned, they should pay for it, and they can sell it or do whatever they want with it after they receive it.  But then I'm opening myself up to negative feedback, right?

 

My guess is that the best option is to just cancel and wash my hands of this buyer.  On the other hand, I really want to teach them a lesson and make it very clear that this is how some of us make our living, and buyers can't just arbitrarily decide they don't want something after bidding, but I'm not sure it's worth it for a $5.00 item. This buyer has 100% buyer feeback (rating of 7) but never leaves feedback for the sellers.  Do I agree to cancel and walk away?  Do I send an email with a polite note explaining why this is wrong, and still agree to cancel and walk away?  Do I refuse to cancel and open an UPI in a couple days if they don't pay?  Do I hunt them down and egg their house?  (kidding)

 

This is the first cancellation request I've had, and I'm just not sure what to do.  I'm guessing I'll run into this a lot more if I continue as a seller.  I'm sure I'm just irritated and that a decision will be a lot easier in the morning once I've had a chance to sleep on it, but your responses would be much appreciated.  Thank you so much!

Selling question

i listed a couple of things today, the pics uploaded successfully.  if you click on the item link, you will see the pics in the listing.  however, the gallery thumbnail image is just the stock pic of two blank polaroids.

 

my old listings are fine, all the gallery pics are still there both in my seller dashboard and when i search for the item.  its just any new ones. 

 

i would like to fix this but i dont know what the issue is

 

thoughts ?

Selling question

Can a seller refuse to accept money? I won the bid 4/12 and but Paypal said seller cannot accept money? I contacted the seller but they will not respond. I contacted Ebay and now the item is saying I won but they have relisted the item.

Seller refusing to accept winning bid

I have always offered my items at a greatly discounted auction price before putting them in the store as a BIN.  This has alweays worked for me.  However, twice this week, buyers have contacted me complaining about the price increase and asking me if I realized I had it  far cheaper last week.  I have NEVER had this happen before.  I checked them out and did not see a pattern of negs or neutrals left for sellers but it is still making me nervous.  Anyone else having this experience?  Any advice?

Buyers questioning Auction vs BIN price

Has anyone ever submitted a signed book to a verification service like PSA or a member of the american board of forensics?

 

I have a few signed books I would like to get checked out and was wondering about the costs and process.

 

Thanks
