Does anyone have any experience with ebayer olivebranchwoodworking? I'm trying to purchase some individual pins for DS4. We are traveling to the world in October for his first trip. I realize there is a chance he will trade for some scrappers, but really would like to start out with legitimate pins.

Just want to put put a warning about this particular ebay seller: irpliquidators.

Received a lot from them today which was shipped to us in the Uk from US. I am a beginner pin trader and even i can tell they are scrappers - YES they are that bad!! Tinny, VERY discoloured, rough around the edges, not one legit pin in the lot!!

I just received my purchase of pins on ebay from kidd74069.

They are all scrappers. I emailed him asking if he could replace them with legitimate pins, and he said he didn't think he had anything that he could replace them with that would make me happy. I asked for a refund.

Just FYI

Does anyone have any information on the ebay seller sunanjs? I'm considering buying this lot of 50 Disney Trading Pins as I need some to trade in the parks since I don't want to really give away my two lanyards that I bought from the Disney Store since they are both LE Pins and Lanyards.

Also, I notice there are a few red flags including Pins being "100% Tradeable", they are sold in small bags, but there is a mention of pins being official.

I'm not a strict timeline, but would like some help please. If this is a no go, what are some good ebay sellers that have large lots?

Thanks, and Have a Magical Day!

All items will be shipped to USA by USPS only, which takes 8-15 days from China.

copied from the listing you linked, I wouldn't buy because based on that it appears they are shipping straight from China to you......these would be scrappers. Especially with the price currently at less than $30 for 50 pins! Unfortunately there aren't many legit sellers that list lots of pins, my best advice is to find a seller you trust and buy individual pins from them, or starter sets. That will give a good selection of pins and you won't need to trade your LE's.

I ended up buying some from this seller: angelajuly

it was a lot of booster packs all new and sealed. so they seem legit (I am not an expert on them at all). so if anyone knows anything about that seller. but I found that was the best deal for me.

I think angelajuly looks good, I can't say for 100% sure because I've never purchased from them, but their listings seem good.

Just got 3 sets of 10 pins from monkabuda -- he says they were traded for in the parks by him and his sons (or her...). He offered discounted shipping with more than 1 set purchased. Pins were great, shipping was really quick, price was cheap. Only problem was they were packaged too well - took me nearly 20 minutes to get the 30 pins unwrapped (packed in bubble wrap, but it's like the wrap was glued together somehow).

I also bought 20 pins from 02playball -- they never posted a tracking number and didn't communicate in any way,so I didn't know they had been shipped until they arrived, not the biggest deal in the world. I have some suspicions about some of the pins because they're very light, but most of them seemed ok. Don't think I'd buy from this one again.

I'm taking a solo trip in 2 months -- I had thought I was done trading until this trip came up, and I had sold a lot of my pins at a time we needed the money -- now I really wish I hadn't sold them because the amount I got for them didn't really make a difference... oh well, I'll just have to start over!

Just got a small lot (19 pins) from missflygirl909, they are fake and she refuses to take them back even with the proof that they are fake.

Don't stress, just report her to ebay. Ebay owns paypal and they will be sure you get your money back! They really protect buyers.

It doesn't appear she is a regular seller of pins - I really doubt she knew/understands they weren't real.

Regardless, you'll get your money back.

Yes, please report her to eBay, and dispute the payment on Paypal. Paypal almost always sides with the buyer, not the seller. Please be sure they are scrappers before reporting the seller but rest assured that eBay/Paypal have your best interests at heart. There are a lot of sellers who have no idea what scrappers are.....keep that in mind.

I just purchased some pins from Angelajuly for an upcoming trip, I will report on the authenticity of the pins once I receive them.

How do you know?

How do I know if a pin is real or fake?

If I try to go through all 1722 posts on this thread to figure it out, my eyes will fall out of my head. Is there a "Pin Trading for Dummies?"

I bought a pin on eBay. I think my niece will want to keep it, not trade it, so she'll be happy no matter what. But I don't want to give positive feedback on eBay if this seller's merchandise is not what it seems.

Disney pins

Wow had no idea about scrappers I've bought pins from people on the good questionable and the bad. i have to look through my tresured collections.

I have them in groups like Rides, resorts, villians, Ichabod and Mr Toad. and N.B.Christmas, and my pirate collection.
I guess I was too trusting because of positive feedback
