Mt Nittany, can you change Gold747 from red to yellow, he did give me a full refund and he did ask me to give him another try. I think I will bid on another of his auctions to see what I get. I would advise caution when buying from him currently but I would say he's honest enough to give another chance.

I had an awesome transaction with puppysnuggler2. I don't know if they regularly sell pins or were just getting rid of some of their own. All of my pins came on their original black tags (whatever you call these) or in the boxes they were bought in (or gifted in). Got some great deals too. I would highly recommend them.

If they are already listed on the thread I apologize. The name was not familar so I didn't think they had been.

scrappers sellers in the UK!

Hi could you add a couple of sellers to your bad sellers list. These are sellers on ebay UK. The first is directsuppliesuk I purchased 8 pins off them in a grab bag type auction where you decide how many pins you want and they send you random pins that they claim have been traded by them personally in disney parks. When they arrived they had sent ariel, eric, 3 peter pan chess piece hidden mickeys & 3 mickey pins. 2 of the mickey pins... darth vader Mickey and the Mickey & Donald patriotic car only had one eye painted on the mickeys! I emailed the seller to say I think I had a couple of scrappers and they replied saying they try to weed out any scrappers but they sometimes get through. They offered to send 2 replacement pins the email was signed by ANDY. When the replacement pins arrived I was sent raiders of the lost Arc Mickey and Mickey with goofy in the herbie car. On both of these pins the eyes were still gold metal... not even painted!
I had a look on ebay for other pics of these pins and decided these look like scrappers too. What I also found was another seller called andyorangeplanes who seemed to have all the pins listed that were in the lot I got from directsuppliesuk he too was also called andy and the location of the seller is the same area too. Coincidence? I will let you decide! Both the sellers have good feedback but not 100% and if you go far enough back you will find the negatives saying "Warning Fake Pins" wish I had looked that far back. I have learnt now. I will only be buying off the list of green sellers from now on even if it means buying from the USA.
Pin trading has only just begun in the Disney stores in the UK and I doubt the cast members will know what to look for in a good or bad pin. Also I was trying to find the page of scrappers pics on pinpice but could not find it. Could you please post a link where I can see pics of scrappers. Many thanks!

There is no real page of scrappers on Pinpics. Also, I have seen a lot of pins with gold eyes. They may not be scrappers. I will add them to the red list, though, because they have only 30 "styles".

As for Andyorangeplanes, do you know for a fact that they are scrappers? I will not add them to the red list if it is not certain. They don't really have any lots in their history, which makes it a better chance that they are real.

I have a few sellers to possibly add to the red list, could someone please check for me and agree/disagree?

earstwoyou, who only has 30 different styles, which probably means that they are scrappers.

Also, pins_surplus, who is definitely BBBC. Look at their description, vs BBBC's. I'll PM a link to both of them to anyone who wants. The descriptions are the exact same, and the layout is the exact same except for a few changes. They definately just changed a few things in the code. They have the same font, the same layout, and the same annoying music. I am adding them right now, regardless of what everyone else says.

The last couple of weeks I've been purchasing pins from past holidays spent at WDW. Being a newbie buyer I have a couple questions, any help is appreciated

Has anyone bought pins from Your WDW Store? I purchased 10 days ago, haven't received pins or responses to my email...I'm not sure what to think..

Also, if an EBAY seller sends you the wrong pin, how does a good seller handle it? I was sent a pin that doesn't match the EBAY description (the pin has a different scene and year on it) and the person is telling me the pins are the same, when obviously they are not..the person says send it back and they will refund..I'm not so sure as this pin took twice as long to arrive as those sent by other sellers...I guess I have to follow the Pay Pay dispute process?

thanks!

Not sure about Your WDW Store

A good eBay seller should refund you the full price, plus shipping, plus your shipping cost, or refund you your shipping cost and send the other pin free of charge. This is just my opinion, but that would be the best way for customer service. I'd just open a PayPal Dispute if I were you, but wait for another person's opinion also.

Oh I definitely think that person who sent the wrong pin should make it right. Filing a dispute is what I would do!

Mt Nittany, I'll check those ebayers out from home tonight, PM me the auction you think belongs to BBBC please.

And to the UK trader, welcome to our board!! We are happy to have you, I will review the sellers you listed as well and give my thoughts on those. I hope you love our hobby and thank you for being aware of scrappers!!

Oh and to find scrappers on pinpics, just use the search function. Hit search and scroll down, hit search again and scroll down, here you enter "scrappers" in the box and hit enter, it will link you to known scrappers.

I think based on what directsuppliesuk has up for auction that these are probably bad. Maybe not all of them, but some of them at least.
As for andyorangeplanes, it appears he has some that to my knowledge have not been scrapped yet so I'm unsure. He also doesn't have a lot up for auction so I'm hesitant to point fingers at that seller.

Mt Nittany, I checked earstwoyou and honestly, when I see all those lots of 100 and the "pick your own" lot at such a great price I have to assume those are mostly scrappers.
I think I'd have to agree with you about pins_surplus, that is way too similar to BBBC.

Disneypinsrus, not good.....I received some that are very bad, rack pins were OK but none of the LE's or HM's were.

Pixie and Mount when you get a chance could you please go to the thread New to Pin Trading - Please Help (I think that is the title of it) and offer some help to that poster. I have looked and given my best advice but would like for some others to look as well. Thanks!

No problem, and my advice was very similar to yours.

I have another seller I will be adding to the list but I am not sure which list yet. I bought two "lots" of four pins from them.....one lot had four peek around pins in it and one lot had four guitar pins in it. Then I put in a offer on the Tinkerbell guitar pin and they accepted. The pins arrived yesterday but the Tinkerbell pin was not in there. I checked on ebay and it says all pins were shipped together. I have sent a message to the seller but haven't heard anything back. I am hoping they send the pin on to me. If I file an INR with paypal they (the seller) has delivery confirmation (since all the pins were supposedly shipped together) so I would lose. Not sure what I am going to do if I don't hear back from them. I won't put the sellers name on here yet till I figure out how this is gonna work out.

Hopefully they will get back to you. I will still try and get paypal to help you. If paypal says you can send back the items and get a full refund make sure you ask that the seller has to pay the shipping back. I know a seller that had to pay for the person to ship the items back and the buyer also got a full refund.

I have thought about that Jen (filing a SNAD) but then that means I have to send back all the pins and I got a really good deal on these others. I just hope I hear from them and they make it right.
