See? That's what happens when I stop selling for awhile, I'm totally out of the loop. One thing I did notice with some aucitons was that people were charging an extra 5% if the buyer pays through paypal. I didn't think that was allowed, but maybe it should be if it isn't. I'm going to try to rush and finish up my auctions and hopefully just be done with ebay, at least until they decide to switch some things back. crossfingers.gif help.gif

D2 that's a huge no no in ebays eyes and I turn people in for that if I see it.

The only people that can charge are some countries like Germany.

If they are in the U.S. or Ca., turn them in

(((pepper)))

Has anyone gone into the forums in the U.K Ebay?

I've heard from a few out that way in ours, and I can just imagine it's pretty much the same.

Here is a very small list other then Amazon for sellers of the unique stuff like ours to try out

Bidville.com
ecrater.com
and a new one if found that gained my interest,
Blujay.com

It's free and I'm not in a hurry to sell so I'll toss a few things up that way.

My favorite so far is eCrater.
It gets listed through Google too and it's soo easy to use and everything is
ALL ours. It's not only completely free, but intergrated with Google Check Out (as blujay is) but we can ask and do what we want freely.

I put one item up today that ended with out bids earlier this morning on ebay. Not RB related. It's NOT an auction site so you have to have a good idea of what your items value is.
It stays until sold and free gallery. No PayPal was my choice.
I'm not expecting it to sell right away but as my auctions end one by one, I think I'm going to put those items there.
I love the feel of Bidville but I REALLY like that one.

Hope the buyers find it smile.gif

I'll be posting back on Bidville who is reporting people flocking to them
in droves.

I'm also going to be checking out other sites but I've seen too many sites
sound good but never have the buyers to maintain them.

Well see.

Here is a link to the SC boards. It's crazy in there.
I haven't posted much because there is just sooo much outcry on the issues
I can't keep up.

After this small round of auctions I have up goes down, I'll be asking for money
orders only.
I've already taken the auto insert for PayPal down so I'm not stuck taking payments
that way.
I can't sit around and wait 21 days for funds to be released and PAY myself for shipping
out of my pocket when anyone can do anything and boom, I lose the funds.
I pay all my items ship cost from my payments.
I'm also taking Google Check out on the sly wink.gif
Can't wait to try it out. Everyone says it's fantastic.

I'm also checking into other online payment systems Ebay does allow not involved with
their company.
I'll give as many options to the buyer as can be.
Cavins_things, as a seller will be in retirement or used for buying only, IF, there is a seller still around that doesn't sell cheap Chinese knock offs.

I just like the unusual stuff you can't get in stores. I guess Ebay doesn't want those sellers around anymore.

Wish Amazon was an option but it's not for any of my categories sad.gif

Sellers Cry Out In Sellers Central and all Boards

What do you mean about waiting 21 days?

From the Paypal user agreement:

Amendment to the PayPal User Agreement


Effective Date: March 14, 2008
Beginning March 14, 2008, the PayPal User Agreement is being amended to include a new section 10.4 as follows:

10.4 eBay Item Hold.

eBay item hold. PayPal, in its sole discretion, may place a hold on a payment you receive for an eBay transaction when PayPal believes there may be a high level of risk associated with the transaction. If PayPal places a hold on your payment, it will show as "pending" in your PayPal Account.

Release of eBay item hold. PayPal will release the eBay item hold after 21 days unless you receive a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback, or Reversal on the transaction subject to the hold. PayPal may release the hold earlier if either of the following applies:

(a) The buyer leaves positive feedback on eBay, or

(cool.gif PayPal can confirm delivery. PayPal will confirm delivery if you use USPS or FedEx to ship the item and (i) use PayPal shipping labels, or (ii) upload tracking information to PayPal via the transaction details page. This applies to US domestic transactions only.

Additional hold period. If you receive a Dispute, Claim, Chargeback, or Reversal on the transaction subject to the eBay item hold, PayPal may hold the payment in your Account until the matter is resolved pursuant to this Agreement.


If a hold takes place, we are required to ship the item first before PayPal pays us. IF they pay us.
This makes it easier for a buyer to do a reversal or chargeback for funds, no questions asked.

Going back to my hovel now.

Luv you guys. I'm just in a carpy mood

Oh yeah southern.

I was just in a "mood" for no reason what so ever haha

I get that ways sometimes.

Hey, I sold three dolls on my new sellers, old buyers ID.
Now I'm up to a total of 4 whopping sales over all. haha

Gawd, it seems sooo weird to be starting waaaaaay back.

I'm still a PS seller on my other and it's kind of sad watching
it fall with lack of selling.
But, at least is safe and sound. I don't know for what but it is.

I think that's unfair. I've only ever dealt with three buyers on ebay, and thankfully they've all been good ones. Currently I have nothing else to sell.
