Selling faulty camera on eBay

I want to sell my Nikon D50 on eBay. It works but has developed what I would guess is a processor problem. I would like to swap to a Canon anyway next year so don't want to repair it myself. Should I sell it as a piece or split the body and lense? [more inside]

What to do with 25 year old baseball memorabilia?

So, back in grade 5 (or 5th grade, as we called it in Brooklyn), our teacher had us all write to various sports teams and basically ask for free stuff. I ended up deluged with schedules, stickers, postcards, and a few autographed photos. Somewhere along the way, I also picked up about a hundred autographs (on 3 x 5 index cards, with neatly handwritten descriptions) of baseball players from the 40s-70s. How can I find out if this load of presumed shite is worth anything? [more inside]

eBay Issue: Confirming Order Cancellation as a Buyer

Yesterday I accidentally purchased something on eBay and had to contact the seller today to get the item cancelled. After much grumbling on their part they finally agreed, but now they're hassling me about accepting the cancellation on eBay somewhere and I think because the item never shipped that process doesn't apply. Can anyone help me confirm this? [more inside]

Furniture, Direct To Your Front Door

Wifey and I sell on Etsy, and we're getting into small pieces of furniture -- but they're not "small" by UPS and USPS standards; the post office won't even take them for being too big, and UPS wants $200+ based on size. Do any of you know how best to ship a piece of furniture, delivered to a person's front door? [more inside]

Selling on eBay: buyer from China with zero feedback

I had a Chanel garment on eBay and it just sold to a buyer from China who has zero feedbacks. They used the Buy It Now option. I've sent out my invoice, which came to just short of $800 with shipping, and am now waiting for them to pay using PayPal. What should I do to protect myself in this transaction? Should I just cancel and relist? I am worried that I am exposing myself to negative feedback somehow.

How do I buy a used gemstone?

I'd like to buy a used/"vintage" gem for an engagement ring. Looking at vintage rings on ebay and etsy, I have zero idea how to assess the "quality" of the stone, or how to know if it's real, or what. Is it possible for a lay person to do this?

how much is a complete run of Animal Man worth?

a question for lovely comic book geeks. I have a complete run of Grant Morrison's Animal Man, in pretty much pristine condition (all still in plastic wraps). They were a fun read, but I don't collect comics and know nothing about collectors of comics. I was thinking of just dumping them, but then became aware that I could probably sell them on eBay or such. I'm trying to figure out if it's worth my while to do so - is it? How much might I get for it - how much should I offer if I'm going to try to sell?

Best SIM card for data and texting travelling in the USA?

I will be in the USA for exactly three weeks in July. I've been looking for a SIM card option (for my unlocked Nexus 4), and it seems like most people recommend the T-Mobile $2 or $3 per day unlimited texts/calls/data option. I also saw a deal from Spot-Mobile that looks better: it's $39.99 for a month of unlimited texts/calls/data, with the first 1GB of data at 4G speeds and free $10 credit for international calls. I'm a little wary, though, because I basically can't find any reference in forums to travellers using Spot-Mobile, or any reviews of them. Their coverage map looks fine, though. Also, I can't tell what their data speed will be for me, since my phone doesn't have 4G. Will it default to 3G or 2G for that first 1GB? Has anyone had any experience with Spot-Mobile? Would you recommend this plan? [more inside]

Global Shipping Program - Item arrived damaged (poorly repackaged)

Hello all -- I had purchased an expensive antique item from a US seller on Ebay about three weeks ago. (I asked him to opt out of the GSP, but he insisted that he didn't want to opt out of it. Since this antique item was a rare collectible that couldn't be purchased anywhere else, and since I haven't used GSP before, I decided to go along with it (despite hearing all the negative accounts of GSP on the internet). I was charged around US$85 for the GSP "import fees" on the ~$500 item. [more inside]

How to snipe on eBay?

There are a few low value items I am interested in on eBay. They seem to be popular so I would like to use a sniping service to try to win them. How do I do this? I assume that they might need my user name and password or does the service use its own account? What companies are trustworthy? Bonus: I generally use my iPhone/Pad so iOS friendly would be great.

Selling on ebay, does this sound legit

Yesterday I put up an unlocked iPhone 4s on ebay for sale. It literally sold in about a minute. This old phone sold at the price it was originally purchased for. I sent the buyer an invoice. They paid it with another minute. For this old phone, that's about 3 versions behind. This makes me leery, especially since the email from ebay says SHIP NOW. Shouldn't I wait for money to appear in my Paypal account? Is it odd that this old phone sold so quickly at such a high price to buyer in the continental United States? If it's legit, do I really ship NOW?

Please recommend experienced eBay seller to help sell comic books

Mr. Christa and I are downsizing to a smaller apartment in Seattle. Mr. Christa has admirably agreed to part with some of his comic books. He thinks selling on eBay would be best. Neither of us, unfortunately, are experienced eBay sellers. eBay USED TO have a listing of "trading assistants", who would help you sell and take a commission. Does anyone still offer this service? Can you recommend someone to help us "grade" (apparently that's a big deal) and sell the comics? [more inside]

Ebay filter: How to get my refund before declaring my case resolved?

I bought an item on ebay, and didn't receive it. Tracking shows it was returned to sender about 10 days after shipment, from a post office in my state, but about 100 miles away. I followed the ebay instructions for what to do when a purchase was not received, contacting the seller by opening a case. Seller agreed to just give me a refund rather than re shipping. Now they say I need to declare the case resolved before they're able to issue the refund. This can't be right, can it? [more inside]
