pinsurplus - just bought 2 lots and all were new on cards in sealed packages w/ the WDW price stickers still on them. Shipping was SUPER fast, and they even reduced my shipping fees before I could even ask about that. Please note this is PINSURPLUS (without the underscore). I'll be back to buy more.

terrible experience

I purchased 3 pins from ebay seller golfresort, paid, was expecting my pins but instead got a refund saying he decided he thought he should get more money for the pins than what he had listed them for, and that he didn't think I really wanted the pins?!? Just ludicrous! THEN, he opened unpaid item cases even though he has been paid and refunded my money. Ebay closed the cases in mmy favor, but I still had to phone in, and was highly annoyed....was just wondering if anyone had possibly had any troubles with this guy?

Has anyone ever bought pins from ebay seller 4evertoylover from canada?

http://stores.ebay.com/4evertoylover

They are selling a lot of single pins and some have the backing cards. Should i trust this seller?

Thanks

Thanks for your input, I haven't heard of them but man that just stinks all around!

I don't think the prices are too bad, I'd pay that for legit pins that I planned to keep. But I haven't used them so I don't know if they have good pins or not, I did notice the same thing that Supernatural said, that Stitch pin wasn't on a pin back so that makes me wonder.

It's a little late for me to be asking now, but I guess the sooner I find out the better in case I need to email back for a refund.

Can anyone verify if kurakka360, owner of Real Deal Pins, is legit?

I'm completely new to pin trading. Saw it last year in Disney and said, "Oh my gosh, I want to do that!" So I bought a starter set from Disney, but then of course I went on ebay and starting looking for some pins to add to my own personal collection... and learned about scrappers. Ugh. I'm really hoping this seller is good, the Mad Hatter pin I bought is one I've been eyeballing.

But that doesn't mean anything really. Their username was sticking in my head but I couldn't think of why, so I went through my emails. I bought 7 pins from them individually a year ago (before I ever knew of this thread) and they were all scrappers. However, they were hidden Mickey pins which I don't buy anymore because more often than not you get scrappers. So, I can not say that you will get a bunch of scrappers from them, but I did. If you buy pins not known for being scrappers, you will probably be fine.

On the other hand, I know of someone who bought a bunch of pins from that person who was thrilled with them. He is new to pin trading, and I have not seen the pins in person, so I can not say if they were authentic.
I did notice the price difference, especially when comparing them to other green listed users on this thread. Of course, if I had found this thread before I went ebay-pin-bonkers, I probably would have saved myself a little time and internal panic!

To my (very newbie) knowledge, both pins I bought (only bought two for now) are not hidden mickeys. One was, as mentioned, a Mad Hatter pin (#74870) and one was the LGM from Toy Story (#88454). The DBF is a huge Toy Story fan, so I grabbed the second one for him to encourage building a pin collection of his own.

But in the future, I'll be sticking to the green list on here. Someone mentioned a user bizzybee1 that I have bookmarked for a set of 25 mixed for trade. That'll probably be my next grab and then we'll be set on pins for our whole trip!

Watch out buying from some people in Utah. There is a family that has several Ebay names but comes from the same town. I have mad the mistake of buying 3 sets. They were all fake and then when I gave bad feed back I got the same message from them all. They keep changing there names but you can tell by the pictures. I have had several good buyers that I have bought from. Just watch the feed back.

I do have to say that I did receive the pins quickly, but I only received 49 out of the 50, and 14 of them were definite scrappers. I sat here for hours on end and googled every single pin, looked on a website that explained what the "scrappers" look like. I then came across this thread during my google and there she is right there in the red. I did contact her immediately and she sent out 15 pins which I received and none of them appear to be fake. However she wants the scrappers back which is fine, but I'm sure she will throw them right back in her mix.

I appreciate all that has been put into this thread. Now I know if I need more who to buy from. Thanks!!
I brought from them. All fake.
