    Dear FixYa,
    I have the problem. My friend from Saint Petersburg is in need to buy Hardy greys GRXi fly fishing reel 7/8 with free spools. This item exists on ebay only but I unfortunately can not use this virtual auction.
    I am ready to buy $90 plus delivery to Russia for this item.

    Thank you for your wish to help me!

EBay has auctions and fixed price items. You can tell an item is for auction if it has a "Place Bid" button. The fixed price listings simply have "Buy it Now" buttons. A listing can be both an auction with a "Buy it Now" option in which case both buttons will be there. The Time Left however doesn't mean a listing is an auction because even fixed price listings expire on eBay.

My daughter took the face off the fan, held the blades still for quite some time and let go. They didn't move at all. It smells like it is burning, it's hot and I tried a new outlet still doesn't work. I...


your daughter burnt out your fan motor windings. you have 2 options.
1. buy a new fan. at today's prices, this is your best & easiest option But, you have to learn to be a comparitive shopper. start by going to amazon.com & looking at the fans ,the fan prices and if you get free shipping or have to pay and how much 4 the shipping. Next, go to ebay.com and type the name & model of the fan you are interested in. you may get an operitunity to buy a used fan there at a reduced price. note this down on paper but remember that ebay usually has only 1 or 2 of these items , and if you come back 2 days later,the add is gone . Ebay has a buy it now price and an auction price. I hate auctions, because you have to wait 7 or 10 days for the auction to be over & you might not get the item if some one else outbids you and you dont get the item for 3 weeks after the auction first started. If you really dont need something & dont mind waiting a month,that might be fun for some people,but not me. I need something ,i want it yesterday.I dont need something,i forget about it altogether. get at least 3 prices before buying because that way ,you at least have some idea of what the item is going for.SERIOUS SHOPPERS, who only want to buy for bottom $, go to google.com--or -bing.com or-yahoo.com--or ask.com & type the make & model # of the item they are looking for a deal on into the search box. You might have to go to 15 or 20 web sites, but somewhere along all that
searching, you will find your item drastically discounted.
True example, I went to home depot & looked at a 2013 homelite,16 inch, 42 cc gasoline chain saw for $179.99 plus 6.35% sales tax. after about 3 hours searching on the internet with google and bing, I bought that saw ,advertised as being
factory reconditioned for $78.65 with free shipping to first time buyers. I got a brand new ,never run, not a scratch on it anywheres gas chain saw and saved $100.00 from home depots price. It was the same year,make and model as home depot's 179.99 saw ,delevered free to my door for $78.65

that is why i dont recommend that you attempt to replace the burnt out fan motor. repair parts distrributors charge you at least twice what they paid for the part. if the motor cost them $50.00 they want between $100.00 to $139.95 for it. and then ,you still need to pay the repairman his time & labor.
If you shop like i told you to, you can probably replace the fan with a new one ,for 1/2 of what you originally paid for it, through the power of internet search engines. PS also a good place to ask questions,get answers and learn things by reading previously writen articles about whatever you are inquiring about.
customer reviews at amazon.com are good to learn about something youthink you might buy. You find out if others love it or if it is a piece of junk. read both the good reviews and the bad reviews. I like to read the bad reviews first, to get an idea whats bad about the item, I may look for a higher quality brand if the cheap one has too many bad reviews.

I bought a regular credit for my game and happy aquarium, I never had problems buying, now 15 days I can not 'buy anything, and even writing to crow star say the problem are the credits, I do not know what...


Assumption is that credits are acquired to participate in an online game. Where the number of credits acquired or paid for makes possible participation to an extensive level. Usually online or internet gaming expires after least participation. For example, buying credits to play an online game that only last a day on a certain date may have made credits becomes least useable soon after a certain later duration. Usually unless that the same internet site provides the sale of credit that is acquired to be stored for gaming throughout a members participation makes unguaratee credits. The possible method is contacting the network that sold credits alerting that the entire funds were not depleted either to attain refunds or retain the balance to participate in another online game at later date. Significant notes with online credits includes ascertaining the location durations or feasibility of participating prior to acquring tokens.

Hi there!

It seems that it's been a month since you sent the email here on Fixya but I will help you on how you can do this on your future listings.
If your item has already bids you can no longer edit or revise but you can end the listing if there are still more than 12 hours left before it ends. you just need to cancel the bids first and end it. then you can relist the item as a fixed price listing depending on the price that the buyers like to pay for it.
the reserve price only works for auction and you need to put it before you list the item.

Here's how you can end your listing early:

1. Go to: http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/end_early.html
2. Click the "End My Listing Early form" link. You may need to sign in.
3. Enter your Item number, and click the "Continue" button.
4. If there were no bids on your item, go to Step 6.


5. If there are bids on your item, choose either "Cancel bids and end listing early" or "Sell item to high bidder(s) and end listing early."
6. Select the reason that you're ending your listing early.
7. Click the "submit" button to end your listing.

Your listing will end and bidders will receive an email explaining that their bid has been canceled.

Hope this helps you on your future listings. Have a great day!

Want to retract a bid have doubled up on an itam


Here's how to retract your bid:

1. Click the "site map" link at the bottom part of the page.
2. Click the "Bid Retractions" link located under the "Buying Resources" heading near the bottom of the left-hand column. You may be asked to sign in.
3. Enter the item number, and select the reason for retracting your bid.
4. Click the "Retract bid" button.

You can find more information about retracting a bid here: http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/bid-retract.html
But please be sure that there is still more than 12 hours before the listing ends because if there is less you will no longer be able to retract the bid.
But you can only retract bids and not buy it now items. With regard to buy it now items, you will need to contact the seller and ask the seller to file the cancel transaction dispute.


Hope this helps. :)

Hi, If you go to active listings on the right side of your ebay item it will have a drop down menu- relist,edit will be there. You should be able to edit item and change reserve price if this does not work because of time on auction left then you must end item which is in same place and instead of relisting there is sell similar item click this, then fix your reserve. Hope i helped. Lesnbek
