good ‘ol fee avoidance- Pallasite

1 Oct

She is avoiding fees by inflating shipping while charging only .20 for her jewelry.

I’ve reported her shop 3 times now, and she’s still THERE with the exact same pricing!

For example, she has one item listed for .20 cents, and is charging $36 for shipping, for a necklace!!! Then she has another necklace that is pretty similar listed for 20 dollars but is only charging 3 dollars for shipping. WTH?

    With something like fee avoidance, I’d figure etsy would want to nip that in the bud right away.

    Weird…

    Pallsite? Did she spell PARASITE wrong?

    Not a good thing. I dealt with a shop a while back in which one made a full price purchase, then purchased a $.20 item, but this was as a sale and for a limited time.

    PS I like the layout!!

    Great new look! But gotta get some more powerful glasses, I think the type is a bit smaller? or does it appear lighter in color?
    or maybe my eyes are wonky today!

    Unknown Etsian – you stole my joke you whore! lol.

    Like the new look. Will take a minute to adjust. But it’s cleaner and more modern looking.

    You know, now it’s all pale on shades of paler. Maybe ECO will make it to the FP on Etsy!!

    Just kidding. I DO like it better.

    Ah yes. Pale, pale, pale 🙂 FP Baby!

    I just noticed this site the other day.. And was going to send it in to ECO!

    I reported a few items, but eh, it got to be too much work…

    This one thinks these things have something to do with yarn.

    Sick of cupcakes, apparently that shop (mybeadjoy) just picks words out of thin air when tagging. They have a watch pendant tagged “digital collage sheet” and a toggle clasp tagged “red, wool, yarn, vintage, cabachon and butterfly”. Bless their hearts.

    Jeeze she lives not that far from me..I ‘ll save postage and go pick it up. I’m going to contact her and see what she says.

  21. adoringhag October 3, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

    come on, you wouldn’t pay $36.00 for shipping on a .20 necklace? what’s wrong with you! it’s beauty-full!

    What a shop combination: baby building blocks and 40 caliber gun casings?

  24. shewolf October 4, 2010 at 9:42 am #

    I sent a conversation asking about her shipping costs….this is what I got back. *headdesk*

    hi,dear.
    sorry for your confusing and thank’s for coming there :), but i make such price 0.20$ to get more visitors to my art gallery…it’s only begining for me and nobody knows me yet..it’s the same as 30.00$ and free shipping then:)This necklace already bought somebody ,but this person don’t paid 4 days,so i think he or she wouldn’t buy(they bought and other such necklace with turquoise colour rose)…they don’t respond to me back about payment ,so i return this two necklaces to shop.This 925 sterling silver leaf is very big and thick …it not thin as paper…and it’s realy nice necklace..

    Idiot.

  26. Kris10 October 4, 2010 at 11:29 am #

    That is some reply.

    But now she seems to have corrected her prices

  27. shoot me for saying this but October 4, 2010 at 2:52 pm #

    isn’t that an old asian joke, the transposition of the letters “R” and “L”

  28. Inspector Yuk October 4, 2010 at 3:48 pm #

    And since when are bullet casings a crafting supply? What aisle are the bullet casings at Michale’s or Hobby Lobby?

  29. The Unknown Etsian October 4, 2010 at 4:30 pm #

    Bullet casings ARE a jewelry supply item and lots of jewelry is currently being made with bullet casings.

  30. Inspector Yuk October 4, 2010 at 7:41 pm #

    Bullet casings are NOT a crafting supply, I don’t care how many jewelers are using them. Their intended purpose is for reloading ammunition for guns, Just because someone came up with dangling a stone from one doesn’t turn it into a crafting supply.

    YES!

    I don’t know about the dangling stone thing. I do know that bullet casings have been used for bodily adornment for over 100 years as witnessed by Los Angeles’ Southwest Indian Museum displays (now absorbed into the Autry Museum).
    The dangling stone thing is only one way to use them. There are plenty of others as well.
    You can make jewelry out of just about anything which is termed “found objects”. A review of found objects and their use in the art world might refresh your viewpoints. There is more to jewelry than cubic zirconias.

    I guess then that anything you want to sell could be labeled as a supply. I also think it’s disingenuous to define supplies so broadly. But that’s what people do, it’s just an excuse to sell whatever shit they want IMHO.

  34. losinghope October 6, 2010 at 3:57 am #

    Something is just not right here… http://www.etsy.com/shop/FryShopping
    Sterling silver is at it’s highest point in decades and she’s sellling pendants for $7.99 made by her “team”?????

  35. JewelJewel October 6, 2010 at 5:20 am #

    at least she fixed her prices – nothing under 8 bucks now – a great example of how this blog makes a difference!

    Because something can be used in crafting does not automatically make it a crafting supply. Once something becomes a crafting supply, it’s no longer a ‘found’ object.
