Good luck with that I have tried for two weeks. No email or phone number. stilll can send me 4 to 5 emails a day, however have absolutely no interest in helping me solve my problem.

they have no customer support .they make you call them and wait on hold.
Yesterday, I spent 47 minutes mostly on hold, transfered to 3 different people none of who could help me. They said they would have someone call today; which they did so I am on terminal hold with them again right now. All I want to do is list more items;however I have reached the dollar amount imposed on me by Ebay of what they will allow me to list . they have to " re-evaluate " my account. with the fees they charge on each item plus paypal fees, you would think they would be able to afford more people to answer their phones. the only reason they still are in business is because they have a monopoly.

Ebay won't do emai. Different answers every time you talk with them. If they used email they would have to honor their own response. They say "work with your customers to resolve issues". But they don't follow their own advice. They kick people off without working with the seller to make sure that they succeed.

no-- there's only calling now, unless you are reporting something.
if you need help with something you should ask here, responders are (sadly) more knowledgeable than the CSR's......

I feel that Ebay's past method of payment was fine as it provided protection for both the seller and buyer. I do not like the fact that ebay now forces you to provide a credit card to allow a buyer to steal or extort money at "ebay's discretion". I want to sell a gold chain. With the new "law" the buyer could do all sorts of things and send it back knowing for sure he will have his money refunded. This is going to set up a lot more fraud as buyers are more easily anonymous than sellers. Paypal has lots of rules in place already but at least the seller has SOME protection albeit not much. With this new policy the seller is just handing his credit card to Ebay and hoping not to run across a relatively clever thief of which there are millions...

I cant have paypal in serbia,i have skrill as payment option and I am verifed there...so if someone can tell me what should i do?ebay customer support?

May I know what are the rules for those duplicate items?
As for my items, most of them are different and usually I will name them as "Old Hong Kong Actress Photo #1" or "Old Hong Kong Actress Photo #2".
However, ebay has sent me an alert where I had listed duplicate items.
Do you mean I can't list the photo and differentiate them by numbering at the back?
Kindly need clear instruction as all my photos are mostly actresses. Besides, some photo I do not know their exact name. Hence I can only named it as "Old Hong Kong Actress Photo, followed by a numbering".
Hope you will look into my case as I have no intention to list duplicate items. Besides, all my items are NOT duplicate since they are different in term of their size, condition and appearance. Hence, I have no idea why ebay warn me about the duplicate listing.
If it is due to the title naming, please do inform me and I will make appropriate action.
Thank you and need you advises.

This email may not apply directly to you but i am hoping through your good office that this email be passed to someone who is in a senior position at PayPal.
Here is my problem with PayPal.
i have been using PayPal to pay for items on ebay and have them shipped to my Fl33178 address in Miami. I tried using payPal at another merchant and the payment was denied by paypal ( reason "unconfirmed address"). I have written to PayPal many times and I have also called them, but no help seems to be forthcoming.
When i finally get through to paypal by phone after long and excessive waiting, some excuse is given to support the reason for denying the payment.
However, on one occasion, their response by email indicated that the problem was caused by a paypal security problem and if i try again, the transaction would be completed. I tried many times after and each time the transaction was denied by paypal, unconfirmed address.
This has left me quite frustrated. The problem is further compounded by the fact that earlier this year, someone was able to fraudulent use my paypal account to purchase an item and have it shipped to an "unconfirmed address". In order to get the situation, i had to file a claim and wait until paypal carried out their investigation.
But this time, I the legitimate owner of the account is being denied access to my account for the same reason. As the rightful owner of this account, I have used paypal to pay for many items and have them shipped to the same address that is now being deemed "unconfirmed".
The truth is, if i could get my items from a source other than ebay, i would gladly close both my ebay and paypal accounts so that i would have no further dealings with paypal.
I hope you can assist by passing this email to someone senior at paypal. If you want me to furnish any other documentation, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been hacked by buyers that pay for the item, wait for the shipping label to be printed and tracking information sent, then they ask for a refund. So they get the item and the refund. This has happened to me twice. And then they can leave bad feedback for you but you can't leave it for them to warn others about what they are doing.
on 04-04-2012 06:36 AM
no listings have actually been removed have they? as long as they have a difference in the title and a different photo they are not "supposed" to be removed, maybe the title is so close the ebay bots are sending you the warning automaticly to make you aware they are close, which you already know....if listings have not been removed as duplicates, i would just keep listing them the way you have.

What is the email to contact ebay irectly, or a phone number. i senta package internationally through paypall and printed the customs shipping label. I have receipts and photocopies they wouldn't let me send and they refunded the buyer over $50 becuase customs in their country has it held up! USPS can only verify the package was dropped off the the P.O. lo cation, the date, time & delivery confirmatiopn number, but ebay said thats not enough and now I'm out $50 & the item!! PLEASE INCLUDE THE EMAIL AND?OR PHONE NUMBER IN RESPONSES> THANK YOU
