I sold a baby a couple of months ago on Ebay. The buyer contacted me yesterday and wants me to make her another baby. I don’t normally do customs but she would be great to work with. Anyway, Ebay is blocking my messages to her. This is the second time this has happened. The only thing I can think of is to write her a letter. I sent her a card when I mailed the baby but I guess she hasn’t thought to look at it.
Yes, it’s very hard to communicate through Ebay. But if she paid via PayPal it should mention her email address.
I checked that and Paypal refers you to Ebay for any messaging the buyer.
May be you can find her on social media. But I think the post card will work for sure as you know her address.
Can you contact her through your regular e-mail, not eBay?
No because the only contact I have is through Ebay. I have tried to find her email. I did find her home address and a phone number on the internet and tried calling it yesterday but had to leave a message. The voice on it was a man and I am not sure if she got the message. (Maybe her husband doesn’t care for dolls). Anyway, I feel certain that she would have called me if she got the message. I thought I would maybe try again tomorrow or I am just going to mail contact information on Monday.
Tell her to give you her email and use “code”
Or you can give her yours…
example… nansbabies at gee male
I have done this before when I have a customer wanting to use my layaway…because I have to invoice them through Paypal .
I don’t know why they don’t allow exchange of emails anymore …so frustrating.
I have to write my email address in careful code on eBay when a customer wants to contact me further about babies. I also use code to direct them to my FB doll page. eBay doesn’t want us to do business outside of them. They try to monopolize business.
@InfantInspirations Would you please teach me how exactly you do it. I was trying to direct my Ebay buyers to Reborns as I list on Ebay with higher price due to their 10%, but they are still bought them from Ebay.
I would really like to know also.
My FB page is Sweet Little Cherry Blooms. So I tell people to search on that name. When I send my email I type the first part then I type A T and then the domain (with a lot of space in between the letters of the words), and then d oh tee c omm. I use a lot of spaces in between letters and words. So far it has worked, but no telling if their filters have gotten better at spotting stuff.
My buyer called me yesterday. She said she had received my messages and had replied but I did not receive any of her replies. Anyway, we got things straightened out. From now on if i sell on Ebay, i am going to put a printed instructions for contacting me. I have the info on my cards but I think I will include both. Thank you all for your suggestions.
