Maybe English since the silverplate lid is English. Jam jelly bowl. Two views:
This is a newer item I think but very good glass. Anyone know the name of the pattern and the maker? It looks like it has a tree pattern sorta.

I'm looking to ID the type of fish that is mounted here. Also, is there a special name for this unusual (to me at least) mounting style? Thanks for your help.
Got an automatic Approval of a return this morning... which is fine that's the way it's SUPPOSED to work with the rules I set up in HFR's...
The problem was MY rule didn't apply, because of the New and Improved returns system eBay set up with the fall update...
The one EBAY created did....
On this item I don't WANT it back, it was supposed to be set up to just auto REFUND them, and then I don't have to pay shipping back on the INAD's. (damaged in shipping).
So I went to try and figure out why it didn't auto refund but instead told the buyer to go ahead and print the shipping label (that I was going to pay for).
And I found it...
Go to Site preferences, then scroll down to the returns section... click the edit button...
Those of you that already HAD rules set up will find a lovely one from ebay: (and some of you that didn't may find this as well)
Good morning everyone.
Just wondering if I could post, since I'm showing as not logged in.
Noticed that the image uploader has changed.
Yay, more changes
Hope everyone has a lovely fall day. Happy holiday to our friends to the north.
SMARTNEWS Keeping you current The Card Catalog Is Officially Dead Long live the card catalog
(Fred de Noyelle/Godong/Godong/Corbis)
It’s been a long time since most libraries were filled with card catalogs — drawers upon drawers of paper cards with information about books. But now, the final toll of the old-fashioned reference system’s death knell has rung for good: The library cooperative that printed and provided catalog cards has officially called it quits on the old-fashioned technology.
The news comes via the The Online Computer Library Center (OCLC). The cooperative, which created the world’s first shared, online catalog system back in 1971, allowed libraries to order custom-printed cards that could then be put in their own analog cataloging systems. Now, says OCLC, it’s time to lay a “largely symbolic” system that’s well past its prime to rest.
“Print library catalogs served a useful purpose for more than 100 years, making resources easy to find within the walls of the physical library,” Skip Prichard, CEO of OCLC, said in a blog post. Now, with comprehensive, cloud-based catalogs like OCLC’s WorldCat available to libraries, there’s just no need for cards any longer.
Catalog cards haven’t always been printed: In fact, good handwriting used to be a key skill for librarians. In an 1898 card catalog handbook, Melvil Dewey even gave instructions on what types of cursive should be used by catalogers on handwritten cards. “Legibility is the main consideration,” he wrote. “Skilful writers acquire reasonable speed without sacrificing legibility. The time of the writer is, however, of small importance compared with that of the reader.”
Can anyone tell me what I have, if anything? It's a small - 4-5 inches - indian in a canoe with a paper label on the side that says 'struggler'? (At first glance I thought it was something to do with old smuggler - a whiskey!
I appreciate any help
I have looked at multitudes of vintage fishing board games (I'm surprised at how many there are), but I can't find any with pieces that look like mine. The toy boards don't seem to have a category for this kind of thing - hoping someone here has some ideas. Maybe they're not even to a game ... if not, I can't guess at what their purpose is. I'm assuming the numbers on the back are points ... but that's just a guess.
TIA for any clues.
They're on fairly thin cardboard and are about 3.5" in length. The "eyes" are metal grommets.
Ok Brother found something and wants me to sell it...
It's a set of stamps... and I can't figure out if I wanna put it up at Auction (what start price), or FP?
Do I put both of them together? or do I separate them out???
One set I have found on eBay the OTHER as I have it does not exist (at least that I could find)....
Suggestions wanted please
First one (the one I can't find)... is a sealed LARGE envelope and the stamp has been "cancelled" and it has a #'d COA, and it comes in this black folder:
And the second one (which I have found a few of), has a folder, and a COA but those aren't numbered.
And while the stamp LOOKS wavy in the second pic, it's not in real life and I'll get a better shot before I post them...
I have NO idea what brother paid for it, and he doesn't either any more... if I dug hard enough and long enough I could probably find it on mom's old credit card statements but I ain't a gonna and told him so.... HE wants to dig through the boxes and BOXES of that stuff have at, I'm not going to till the IRS makes me (if they try and take the house).
Leather covered couch. Hand Carved Dragon figures in the wood work. Appears very old and hand made. Any idea of maker, year/period/value?
Good morning everyone.
What are these stones called? The top one is maybe a brownish coral color and the bottom is somewhat opalized? Sorry to be so vague but none of my crayons match up.
No clue what these are. Tested with the Presidium and the needle doesn't even budge. Very shimmery blue and green.
At first I thought Paua shell .... what do folks here think? I'm just not sure because it seems to be quite iridescent.
Set in a heavy (over 11 grams) 14k pendant so I'm thinking it might be some sort of stone or shell rather than glass? Closed back not open setting.

Hoping to find out a bit more about these guys. They stand about 25" tall and are made of cloth with plastic hats and wire construction. One guy has a saxaphone & the other has an umbrella and is crying a tear. The sax guy has an original price tag that shows $60.00. There are no other identifying marks.
Hopefully someone will recognize them. I'd like to know where they were made and sold and when.
Since this topic has been raised a few times recently, and now we have a newbie with the question, I decided to start a thread. I pasted the question from Wowza65 (taken from the intro thread); thought some of our experienced sellers might have some helpful comments or discussion.
Was thinking olivine because of a pair of earrings I had that were. Was going to list but noticed orange eyes have the same "rough" cut. I know it's hard to tell from pic, but thought I'd ask for opinions. Thanks for help
Hi, Does anyone recognize the mark on this sash pin? At first I thought it was WB in a diamond, but now I'm not sure. It looks like there is a period between the 2 letters, but at the top of the letters, which makes me think it may be something followed by the letter M. Anyway, I looked under B, M, and W on the RSJ site, and did some searching under WB and haven't come up with it.
Thanks for any help with this.
I purchased this box of 300 photographs 35 years ago and would like to sell them but I'm not sure who they would appeal to? Art collectors, photograph collectors, history buffs? The woman I purchased them from told me her husband was a diplomat who traveled around Europe from 1913 to 1917 taking pictures of works of art in anticipation of the war. In addition to people and religious scenes, there are many pastoral scenes and interiors of homes. I pulled some out to give you an idea. They're printed on thick paper. This is not my wheelhouse but have always found them very interesting. Should I break them up and sell them in groups or individually or keep them together? Any further help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
This CDV has no photographer or other information on it. I would love any input on what kind of uniform you think he has on. Thanks for looking!
I bought a large Yankee Candle in a jar from mnmdiscount1. When it arrived the jar was almost completely broken due to not being properly packaged. I let them know, my money was refunded, and I left them neutral, honest feedback:
This evening I got an email from the seller, asking me to change my feedback from neutral to positive. I refused and told them not to contact me again. I also followed up my neutral feedback by stating that they were hassling me to change it:
In addition, I called Ebay to let them know what was going on. While I was on the phone with Ebay, mnmdiscount1 sent me another message, this time being sarcastic and rude, blabbering on about God, and telling me that I truly live up to my user name (um, my user name came from a video game! **bleep**?):
Ebay assured me that the seller will not be able to contact me again, that it was wrong for them to contact me asking me to change my feedback, and that the matter would be handled. What is it with these people? If they want positive feedback, maybe they should be more professional!

Hello - I was hoping someone may have some insight on this decanter set I purchased. The glass is a dark green and each piece is 'wrapped' in leather (or faux leather) that is removable on the glasses but not on the decanter. There is a foil label that simple states 'Made in Italy'. The bottom of the decanter is covered so I've shown the bottom of one of the glasses. There is some sort of crest on the wrap on the decanter. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Pay attention and don't tell me to try another browser before you read and understand the whole issue.
On my 27" iMac running OSX Yosemite, NONE of my browsers show images in an Ebay item listing. Gallery images next to items in search results show fine, but when I click on a link to view an item's details, the images say, "Image Not Available".
Images on other websites work fine.
Images in Ebay items on all browsers on all other computers in my house, even on other Apple Macs, work fine.
I know this is an issue with this particular mac, and not a particular browser. I also know this is most likely NOT an Ebay issue; though it only manifests itself on Ebay listings.
I have tried ...
- Trying EBay ads on other computers in the house, PCs, Macs and Linux machines... all work fine.
- Trying various images on the ImageShack.com website... all work fine.
- Changing my DNS to OpenDNS, then to 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168, and 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 with no luck.
- Changed the wifi connection from my router, to the hotspot on my phone with no luck.
- Trying an EBay ad on IceWeasel on a Kali Linux machine running in VMWare Fusion on the affected mac, Doesn't work.
- Trying an EBay ad on IE on a Win2012 R2 Workstation VM running on VMWare Fusion on the affected machine, Doesn't work.
So I think I've exhausted any troubleshooting ideas I can think of. The problem seems to be isolated to my single imac. No browser running under the TCP/IP stack on this iMac will show EBay listing images. All other images on EBay work fine. All other images on all other websites work fine.
Here's a screenshot of the same EBay item on Firefox, Chrome and Safari on the affected machine...
I love this large glass vase, but I know very little about Italian art glass. It measures 13 1/2" tall and 5 1/2" wide. There is a small round label on the base that simply reads Made in Italy. All of the applied glass (feet, prunts, and rim) have a dusting of gold. There is a pontil mark on the base, and the body of the vase has a diamond optic or honeycomb look. Anyone with an expertise in Italian glass have an idea of the maker or region? When do you think it was made. Thank you for any help and for taking the time to read my query.

Found this in the bottom of a jewelry box that I purchased at an estate full of antique/vintage jewelry and a Gorham trinket bowl. Question is, I dont have a clue what type of stone it is. I have backlit the piece to show you how the light shows through. The piece has no marking and is open in the back. Help
Anyone have any idea on this? There are marks on the back, the best i can tell is that the u might be a date. 1979? Any help would be great
you sent me this message:
|Hi ivonkaml_6rber1l, |
This case has been decided in your favor.
We didn't receive valid tracking information from the seller. We're sorry you had a problem with your purchase, and we're issuing you a refund for this case.
Since the late 1990s, I have had this pottery sugar lid in my inventory, labeled as Vernon Kilns Lollipop Tree. The cream matte glaze and decoration are so close that I didn't even notice the now-obvious differences in shape, finial and pattern!
The lid measures about 3.5 inches in diameter and has a "pinched" finial. The glaze has the teensiest yellow cast compared to actual Lollipop Tree pieces I purchased at the same time. The decoration is a light brown branch with very pale coral and yellow-green pointed leaves; I don't know what the 3 aqua dots represent. The lid's underside is plain, with 3 kiln marks.
The lid is NOT a Vernon Kilns shape . . . so who made it? What is the pattern name?
Thanks for any help in identifying this mystery lid!
I have two different Plates that have patterens I am unable to find .
The first is like a block or cube pattern 11"and the second I call an arrow pattern but dont really know what to call it. - 11 1/2" pretty sure this one is a cake plate.
Maybe someone can give me a suggestion on what to call the patterns if no one knows for sure.
Hope someone can help!
Thanks in advance,
The case which we opened for the item which was not delivered. Finally I received it from Post office.
So please confirm it to the seller and dont refund the amount.
Good news! We issued you a full refund of $304.19 on Oct 10, 2015. The refund includes the purchase price plus original shipping and has been credited to your PayPal account. Please log in to PayPal and view the History page if you don't see it in your PayPal balance.
I know next to nothing regarding antique or vintage furniture.
Picked this little guy up yesterday at a local sale for $3, so if it turns out to be trash, not a big deal.
Was hoping you all could please enlighten me on the possible age, origin, style, wood type, tile type, etc.
Appearsa to have some age, but I'm probably wrong. It's solid wood and quite heavy given the size approx: 12 x 9 x 9 inches.
Thank you all for your time and thoughts.
Would truly appreciate anyone familiar with the Kings Crown pattern to set me straight on who made what. I have this collection of kings Crown glassware I purchased at an estate sale, but I am always confused as to what identifies these pieces as Indiana or Tiffin (measurements will probably clarify this). The water goblet measures around 5 5/8" with a top diameter of 3", while the iced tea tumbler measures right around 5.5" in height with a top diameter of 3" as well. If these are Tiffin, they are considered cranberry flash? vs. stained? and should not be called ruby in color? They do look cranberry to me. What's the actual difference between flash and staining? I've seen so many sellers throwing this glassware around on Ebay under different manufacturers and different measurements that I want the correct info on who made these. As always, your help and experise is appreciated.
I normally won't purchase items such as these, but they were cheap....approx $0.01 each for the entire lot at a local estate.
There are hundreds of pieces of paper, many hand written or with letterheads with signatures from it appears prominent members of society of that era (1910 - 1920s). Folks such as US Senators, Judges, Lawyers, Military Officials, Artist, Doctors, Scientist, etc. etc.. etc... Many or most addressed to the President of: 'The Penn Club of Philadelphia'.
How does one list or sell such a large lot of papers such as these? I haven't searched or gone through the entire lot thoroughly, just too many pieces and I really don't have the time to search every one.
Here are two carved wood figures, very Asian looking, perhaps Chinese? Can anyone help me identify if they are Chinese, and what era they look like they are from?
I've been bidding on these for a few days; the average sale price for a used one is between $200-$350; Apple charges $500 for a new one without contract. But then this happened (including automatic bids):

What in the world?!? I can see one bidder making a mistake, but why would the second bidder jump in at that price? Other than sheer stupidity, what could be going on? Money laundering, or...?

Hello, Has a mark i cant make out , but only TA? Any help would be great, Thanks
Hi everyone! I have this lovely sterling/vermeil puffy heart. It is stamped on the back "925" "Italy" and what looks like a cursive letter "V". Any idea who this would be. Thanks so much in advance! Val
Has a mark i cant make out TA? Any ideas?
Has a mark i cant make out. Looks like TA?
I found these at a thrift the other day. I'd guess they're from the 1950's - 1960's. They stand about 25" tall. They're made of cloth with sewn clothing and plastic hats. One of them has a saxaphone. The other one has an umbrella and is crying a tear.There are no makers marks but there is an original price tag on the one with the saxaphone that reads $60.00. Unfortunately there's no indication of what store it might've come from but it does look like a department store tag.
Just wondering if anyone might know who made them and when or where they might have originally been sold.
Does anyone recognize this milk glass vase? It is fairly heavy and hand-painted. The glass is satiny. The base bears the number 11-24-48.
Any help is appreciated!
I'm looking for expert opinion on these Dolphin Petticoat Candlesticks. Shirley Dunbar's Heisey, Early Years book shows these, but also comments that they were a reproduction of the earlier Northwood Petticoat candlestick. I'm leaning towards Heisey, because the scales are finer lines than it looks like Northwood used. Also, it seems the green is more like Heisey's Moongleam (I am not well versed in Heisey colors, and am going off what I'm finding now), and I have not yet found a Northwood color that matches.
They stand 6 1/2" tall. They are unmarked.
Thank you in advance.
Since 2004 I have been on ebay. I sold periodically but mostly bought music. As of 2014 I no longer work and on disability. For a year I have been selling CD's, Vinyl and music magazines. I am doing very poorly. I almost give my items away. I have tried auctions, buy now, make an offer, etc. No real difference. I had my second attempt at a store but it was a bust both times. Should I try again? I owe ebay more than I should.
Decided to go this route:http://www.ebay.com/usr/peacefulworld33.3 I am also trying listing in the UK on a few items. I am sure som music people know me as I spend way too much on 1st ed jazz records. ( I am sell all non jazz CD's/records)
Adopted a nice seller stance, the buyer comes first and refund as soon as possible if he or she is unsatisfied due a listing mistake on my end.
I have thousands of CD titles and a few hundred records, and too many Mojo, RS, Jazziz, Goldmine, etc to count going back to mid 80's.
Really coul use a mentor here. It started as a hobbie but living on SS it has to become an income.
Struggling with selling collectables. Auction or Buy It Now?
Thank You for taking your time to read my post, Peacefulworld 33.3
I am after some advice please, as unfortunatly I have found myself in a position I have not been in before.
I keep Shrimp as pets and after they I bred like mad this year I decided to sell off some of the youngsters to make room in my tanks.
I have sold 30 lots of 20 shrimp without any problems whatsoever, however I have got a customer now who is claiming that 43 out of 45 were dead on arrival (He bought 2 lots, and I threw the extra 5 in FOC as I always include a few extras)
Our listing quite clearly states that any DOA should be reported within an hour of being signed for and backed up with photographic proof.
The customers package was delivered & signed for at arouns 9:30am and he then reported them as DOA at 21:22pm almost 12 hours after, it then took several promting email to get the pictures which came 2 days later (Which are so blurred you cant make them out)
He still has not answered questions to him asking why the 12 hour delay, or where the shrimp had been in that time, after all if they have just been left on a doorstep outside for 12 hours then its no suprise they may be dead.
Also I have checked the buyers feedback left for others to discover out of the last 34 left in the last 90 days, he has marked 1 as negative, a whopping 13 as Neutral, and at least 4 have had issues that looks like they been resolved.
Even before the shipment he changed the date twice due to holiday and funeral, then tried to change the day I had already sent them, and then asked for extra because of the inconvienience of somebody having to stay in to wait for them.
He states that there was no heat pack, but nor was there in any of the other 29 parcels I have sent that all arrived fine, as my shrimp are actually kept in unheated tanks in the shed and quite used to low temperatures, it is not like it is cold enough to kill these from temperature yet, they were double bagged and wrapped in bubble wrap, and sent at 3:30pm so only spent 19 hours in transit anywayof which many hours would of been still in the post office, sorting office and vans.
My issue is, should I Refund/Replace or just try my luck at argueing this? as personally I think I am being scammed.
do you have back up computers, go to library, use a friend's etc....
I sold an old, unopened copy of Windows XP to a fairly new eBay member the other day. Still brand new, in the shrink wrap. One of many hundreds I've ever had pass through my hands, as part of my work. It didn't feel too light, it didn't feel too thin; so I am 100 percent sure the CD was in there. Why wouldn't it be?
The buyer never contacted me about her findings (or "story"); but instead, after leaving negative feedback, now wants her (measly) 15 something bucks back; and claims that she received an empty sleeve. So far I have yet to receive the first sign of evidence of that. I can't - even in my wildest dreams - imagine that a postal worker opened the envelope, thought "woohoo I'm gonna take this", remove the shrink wrap, take the CD, and then put the empty sleeve back in the envelope and reseal the envelope. Maybe Steven Spielberg can do something with a story like that; but not me.
So: I'm assuming a case of buyer's remorse. And, consequently a ripoff attempt. And that's pretty much how I summed it up in my reply to the claim. That, plus the fact that I'm absolutely positive that this buyer is gaming the Buyer Protection program.
I'm not a professional seller; but I didn't get my positive feedback by not giving people what they pay for. And the $15 refund (which I haven't paid yet) doesn't bother me either. What really bothers me is that this person can actually get away with something like this. Petty theft, for crying out loud...
Any advice, options, on how to proceed would be very much appreciated!
Why are buyers allowed to leave negative feedback without first being required to contact sellers personally???? I recently sold an item that worked perfectly while in my possession and I offered a 14 day refund/return with the item. I thoroughly examined the product and knew it's good history as it belonged only to me, an older woman who is extremely particular with my belongings. As stated in my listing it was a used item and I noted all defects!! Forty, yes 40 days later the buyer leaves a negative feedback then goes thru ebay to request a refund saying the item is defective. In their complaint they stated they gave the item as a gift the day before (39 days after the sell) and it didn't work. Did they not check the item when they got it, expecially if it was to be a gift? Really??? I'll eat the negative feedback because I'm pretty much done with selling on ebay as I don't think they care about their sellers, otherwise they would not allow negative feedback from a buyer until the buyer first contacts the seller personally and in a reasonable time frame to the listing of the seller!!!!! My policies listed in my listings should mean something and buyers should be held responsible for their actions!!!!!!!
Seasoned sellers, I need help with this please.
I have auction that is ending Wednesday it currently has 1 bidder and 3 watchers. The one who already bid contacted me wants me to outright end the auction now so she can buy it at the current price. She said she was in a desperate hurry to receive the costume in time for her daughter's school party.
I told her that the current price is undervalue so I'd rather just wait until the end the auction because the current price is just the starting bid and the same exact dress is selling as high as $50 elsewhere. She emailed me back with a story about how she bought this exact dress last month from another seller paid $30 (which including shipping) and still hasn't received. She is worried her daughter won't have a costume and is making me feel bad for her.
I wrote back and said I'm willing to compromise, if she is. I'm willing to end the auction tommorrow if there are no other bidders instead of Wednesday if she is willing to pay $5.00 for shipping (I currently have it set up with free shipping). I haven't heard back from her yet but in the event she agrees to my terms, I don't understand what I need to do.
1) Can I end an auction that already has a bid and will it count against me?
2 Do I end it and then create a BIN for her?
2) How do I go about modifying her shipping cost?
Thanks so very much in advance.
I haven't sold much on ebay during the last several years. Mostly I buy things I need and I find good prices and a generally good experience here.
Recently I sold my wife's iphone on ebay. 18 bids were received over a 6 day period, 6 of them from a guy who turned out to be the high bidder. After buying and being notified of his success, he declined to proceed with payment. We exchanged a few messages, and it became clear that his intent was to buy it outside of ebay for a lower price, after I failed to sell it. Indeed he admitted he didn't have the money to pay for his bids when he made them, and did so to "control the sale".
I was surprised to find that this guy had NO negative feedback, but when I started reading the details of the feedback, I found he had done the same thing to several other sellers. But, although they wrote about their experience, they were forced to flag the feedback as "positive".
Do sellers have the ability to "bar" selected buyers from making a bid or attempting to buy it now when they list items?
Why does ebay allow buyers to game the system and injure sellers? If they are not going to enforce standards of behavior, and bar fraudulant buyers, why deprive the community of the ability to self police by restricting feedback to "positive rated" only.?
I have some halloween costumes and I doubt all of them are going to sell. I will have to relist them next year. After this auction is over if I archive the listing will it still be in the archives next year? Thanks,
Several times here I will be following a thread and the mods move it, for example to the cafe.
How do you find those places? If I posted in a thread I can click my name and find it, and if I get back quick enough I can click the link the mod posts under the title. However those moved threads sink quickly and become hard to find.
I have looked for the cafe under all the headings on top just to go straight there, even googled it, and can't find it. I've also noticed when threads get moved like that they flat out die. No wonder as it seems no one can find them.
I thought we were supposed to get 20 free items in the collectible category?
Yesterday I listed 15 and got charged $3.30.
I only bulk relisted them because I thought they were 100% free.
I just sold a game but the buyer said they put the wrong address. I go to print the shipping label but when I go to change the address it says I won't be eligible for any seller protection policies. So what should I do?
I used up the promotional offerings this month but none of my regular basic store listings. Tried to list and relist about 13 items in the collectible category and the bulk listing is saying I would owe insertion fees. I backed out and checked that I was in the right category, went through the process again and same thing. Saying I would owe insertion fees. What is happening? Am I overlooking something?
Looking to get some info here.
Had a customer claim non receipt.
Customer (unknowingly) opened case, causing a "black mark".
Item received by customer (before ebay's ridiculous "received by" date).
Customer posts positive feedback and closes case BUT - "mark" still there.
Any way to get this removed? if so...how?
Thanks in Advance,
I2 part Q: If an item that was purchased Buy it Now and a person purchased it and later found out it was a scam or the item was never shipped how does Ebay handle this? TIA
I am looking to buy a tool set, its priced well below what they currently sell for... Seems fishy but If I do purchase the item does ebay offer me any protection in ways of getting refunded? The seller doesnt accept returns.
Above is the listing, if that helps. He has sold several sets but no seller feedback yet... Below is another very similiar listing with same exact price which is what alerted me in the first place.
These sets are out of stock but sell for $300 at lowes.com... Im assuming this a deal too good to be true.
how can i list more than 10 product i need 100 product to list on ebay how can i do this please help me
Anyone else experience this? Thanks.
I would like to ask you for help.
I am interested in buying an item that is found on ebay.co.uk or ebay.de ( I'm from Slovenia ), with item location set at European Union ( Slovenia is a part of EU, so i woldn't be obligated to pay VAT ), but the desired item location is from USA.
The thing that is bothering me is, will this item be shipped from USA directly to me and i'll have to pay VAT, or will the item be shipped to a storage somewhere in EU and then be shipped to me, so that I won't be obligated to pay taxes.
I hope that some of you had the experience and can help me.
I accepted an offer from a (0).....on an item that was $348.00.....I was a (0) once, so I took a chance....big mistake....no payment and no communication...this is just dead in the water. I opened an unpaid item case after two days, we are at day four and still no communication or payment. I really want to just be done and relist my item NOW....Can I just close the case, then cancel the offer, then relist?...in that order?......I know you can not cancel a buyer if there is a case open, but what if I close it first? would I then be free to move forward?........Please don't respond telling me to wait for the case to close....duh.....I have my reasons for needing this to happen now, not important to go into that........Thank you so much in advance for your help.
I sold a phone I purchased locally on ebay and I was giving it a very close look over before shipping and to reset it to factory settings and I started to suspect it was counterfeit. After watching a few YouTube videos and reading forums I now strongly suspect it is fake. I issued a refund and an apology to the buyer immediately as I can't in good conscience do this. Was this the right course of action?
P.S. I almost did not catch it, I received the phone as is with a Genuine AT&T back cover and only comparing it side by side to another phone did I notice one small detail that gave it away, which was the position of the headphone ground pin insided the connector is wrong. Other than that it is a near perfect replica. I cancelled the payment through paypal but when i tried to cancel the sale with ebay it says it cannot while a case is open with paypal but my paypal account doesnt show an open case... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYTqeILPNug
I got problem. Before my problem sorry for my bad english, it's my second language and I'm not great in english.
I get some screens, so you can see my problem. I paid for item, but item was never received to me. You can see, i got mail from payments from ebay, so I paid it.
When i click "Track your Other", I open new mirror in my browser and it's mirror from ebay with answer:
" The following critical errors have occurred.
Sorry, you are neither the buyer nor the seller for this transaction. Only the buyer or the seller can access this page. "
But how. I paid it from this, I paid click it from my account on ebay. And I'm not the buyer?
What can i to do? I'm highly confused and frustrated. Help me please.
So today an auction I had ended. it looks like some how the normal shipping cost calculator is some how free shipping. there was a bid on the auction an I am not getting anything for the cost of shipping now.
this is a glitch with the mobile version of the website and not the first time the has happened to me. when I was listing the auction and entering the weight and size of the package this didn't save the first two attempts and then so I thought worked on the third. now I am looking at the ended auction and there is a dash mark "-" where the shipping should be!
it's bad enough eBay steals a percentage of the money for shipping now but what am I supposed to do with nothing for shipping? the buyer is not going to want to pay the difference because eBay told them it would be free. what options do I have from here can I cancel the whole thing and relist?!
We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction. If you've already sent payment, the sale should process as normal and you don't have anything to worry about. If you have any questions about delivery, please check tracking or contact your seller. If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Center to help resolve any problems you may encounter.
Help me pls ,what does this means i will not get my item and my money gone?
Am i scamed pls help admins ?

I apologize in advance if i just missed the "how-to" link somewhere, but I have tried and tried to do this with no luck.
I am a standard (non-commercial) member. I ran across a selling area http://pages.motors.ebay.com/local/, but this is not allowing me to actually use this type of ad. When I click on the 'Let's Get Started' button, it takes me to the standard selling tool with no 'Local Classifieds' option.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in Advance,
I've just listed a rather expensive item ($950) and had someone buy the item within 24 hours. This person just created their account today. the phone number and area code does not match the phone number that is listed in their ebay info. the user name also looks fishy. How do I know this is real and what are the risks going forward with this buyer? Is this some kind of scam?
I recently purchased an Item using a guest account because It somehow would not let my use my user ID and password.The transaction went well,but now It will not let me give feedback for that seller.It also has me listed with a strange bunch of letters and numbers as an ID. It also has me as a member starting on the date I made my last purchase and not from recent years.
How do I buy multiple items from a dealer that says they will combine shipping costs if there is no add to cart option? It is a buy it now option and I must pay before I can get the next item - paying full shipping each time.
I sold a Banana Republic messenger bag yesterday. The winning bidder sent me a message later in the day stating: "If this item is NOT 100% authentic, do you accept return? please let me know, thank you!"
Searching Ebay policies turns up this: "If the buyer starts a return request because an item isn't as described in the listing, and then asks us to step in and help, you may be protected from losing a case if you provide clear documentation that the item was described accurately and consistently in the listing. This documentation can include photos of the item that you upload to eBay during the returns process."
Unfortunately, I have no way of verifying if this the bag is authentic or not if this person claims that it is not. I bought it a couple years ago and don't keep receipts. I'm wondering if I'm better off not dealing with the person, but I don't know if this is a common question that I shouldn't be worried about.
Have you found that a person asking this question right off the bat ends up being more trouble than they're worth or am I overreacting? I don't sell a lot of stuff on Ebay so haven't encountered anything like this yet.
Thanks in advance,
