  • What the Heck Is Up With Ebay

    The other day I tried to bid on a guy's part, and ebay sent a message that the seller wasn't accepting bids from me. I never could figure out why.

    Now today I saw a nice metal tin for auto fuses and tried to enter a best offer, but got this message from ebay.

    "Unfortunately, this seller has decided that you are not permitted to place best offer on their listings. You may contact the seller via the Ask Seller Questions feature if you want additional details.

    Please note: You may not use other eBay accounts to place best offer on this seller's listings. Doing so may result in your indefinite suspension from eBay."

    Here's the link to the fuse tin if someone else wants to try a best offer.

        Auctions can restrict bidders with negative feedback, less than “x” number of purchases, live in a country the seller will not ship to, has retracted a bid, etc. You must fit some sort of profile that restricts your bidding privs.

          Nope. Never had a bad feedback or returned item. I just bought something this morning with no problem. Just can't figure out those other two ebay items not taking my bid. I just tried to leave an offer of $2.00 and a screen came up saying "BUYER REQUIREMENTS" with a blank red line. Makes no sense at all, and I've decided it isn't even worth the postage he wants.

            You should call Ebay and ask why. Good luck with that though

          EBay Cautions
          by BudP
          Many times I have purchased Model A items on EBay. Generally, I only purchase if I need the item, the price is reasonable, and the description (pictures and narrative) gives me some assurance of the quality. Last night I was a seller, listing Model A side curtains (appeared to have never been used) from my stash and new side curtain rods (original style, unopened packaging) for $475 including shipping....

          Ebay listing apps for selling, what is your experience?
          by Kevin in NJ
          I need to get back into selling on ebay. I have been using the Windows app that eBay provides for free.

          I am selling a wide variety of what is laying around my house. So I am not constantly listing the same thing. I have Windows and MacBook computers. I use an Iphone.

          Can people please share their experiences with both phone Apps and PC based apps.
          Keep in mind I am...

          Ebay Radiators Buyer Beware
          by Rowdy
          Just letting you all know there are 2 Gleaner Combine radiators on ebay being advertized as being for a Model A. While they are good for an engine test stand or stationary engines they will not fit your car. Both are from the same seller in Houston, Tx. . I informed him they will not fit a car and while he thanked me, he did not ammend the listing. Rod

          Ebay and New Jersey Sales Tax or How to Waste People's Money and Time
          by Leo
          For all you Ebay sellers of Model A parts who live in New Jersey. Back at the end of last year I became aware that if I wanted to sell on Ebay to anyone who bought and lived in New Jersey I needed to collect sales tax and remit it the state. OK, in order to do this I needed to register myself as a business in the county where I reside costing me $50.00, then I needed to identify myself as a business...

          Show Us Your License Plate Topper
          by Tom Wesenberg
          I have 5 now and will probably stop unless I come across a very special one that is affordable.
          The first and last I bought just the other day on ebay, and the middle two pictures I bought on ebay about 4 years ago.
          Many of the toppers sell pretty high on ebay, and I rarely find any at the swap meet and antique shops.
          I bought all 5 of these repro's on ebay for less than $20 eac...
