  • Wellll, I'll be stumped !!!! All of a sudden my search listings now came up with 18 consecutive pages of Australian Stamps as listed by my field selections. (I stopped at 18) with no commonwealth territories, no pre federation (state stamps) and n…
  • Crikey and stone the crows, lol, I have read the comments on this thread for over an hour now and both seller and buyer have been hotly debating the blocking issue. Surely there is enough constructive criticism out of all this for HipStamp to act on…
  • I as a buyer very rarely use ebay now, I consider the quality, the sellers, and the format of the Hip site are more superior including the atmosphere being more relaxing than the so called feebay. I must admit I had a lot of problems working the nav…
  • Thanks Harry, sometimes the simple solutions are so far away. Cheers Pete
  • lol, me too

  • I think I can see now what happened, originally I tracked one of the numbers and received this item is un trackable, then I entered the other number after reading Ted's post and that was the false one that took me to Beijing. but again they were the…
  • Hi Mark, this is what came up when I clicked the same tracking link with the same transaction that I had a now rectified problem with, Again it gives me one number then tells me to track another. Pasted of the search below. 2 results (0.28 seconds)…
  • Hi Mark, I clicked on the buying link "tracking" which took me to a page that had a seach 2 search fields one was RR1423 which I assumed was an example and the other was RR142399405US which I presumed was the real Mcoy, this provided t…
  • Happened to me to, you get a little tired and hit the send button without thinking. Save a draft is the way to go.
  • I have worked out the tracking, If I go through the HipStamp link the tracking fails but if I open new browser and run the URL "USPS.com" I get a totally different webpage and the number tracks ok. My Missus is still having fits of laughter, I am in…
  • Oops some how I have double posted, Must have been the shock of seeing my package has done a couple of runs to China??? Stone the crows!! something crazy going down here. I am off to contact the seller. Funnily though when I run the same number I s…
  • Thank you again and thanks Ted for your input, This is the first time I have had to look at tracking from HipStamp to USPS tracking from Aus, that is why I am a little vague. When I clicked on the HipStamp tracking link this is where I landed :- RR…

  • Thanks guys, Firstly Michael, the items were marked posted mid april, I clicked on the link "track this item" and a search engine page came up with USPS tracking site, yes it looks like I will have to contact the seller to get…
  • Thanks Michael, I was starting to feel a bit of a wall flower on this one. Some sellers seem to forget that If a person like me is not here then they will not sell stamps! I have to say this again, NO PICTURE, lack of info …
  • I agree Ted, I hate buying a MNH or MH listed stamp and it has no gum, I buy a lot of stamps as a collector and to me MNH means what it says ie as it comes from the printer, I have a lot of problems with mailing a high amount of sellers to query whe…
  • Under paid and over worked, I wonder if he was an employee under contractors like here. Seems to be a western world trait. We are suffering the same by Australia Post. $2.00 to take up to 7 days to get a letter from another state to a regional area …
  • Thankyou Mark
  • Thanks for the replies, I think they have both made sense of my chatter, 1. I now have a full understanding of the auto combine, correct me if I am wrong, this must be defaulted by the seller. 2. The sales from the store :- The seller did indicate t…
  • Thanks mark, I get it now, cheers
  • Hmm, I guess I am getting confused again. The reason I asked the original question. I did a high value purchase and mailed the seller and stated I wish I could work out how to arrange for registered mail. He was kind enough to do that but he was $17…
  • Thank you Luree
  • Daylight saving is the best thing since sliced bread was invented. I get an extra hour on the front porch having a beer after dinner til the sun goes down every winter.
  • Hi Jacques, Firstly, thank you for your comment. I am as a Newbie wearing a bit of egg on my face over this issue and hope this thread goes down the list quickly. I seem to have casted an aspersion on the many when my grizzle was …
  • Thank you Jeri, I am retracting a lot of my original criticism, I can now see it needs to be more directed at the medium instead of the seller. Cheers and thanks, the new kid needs to sit back a bit, chill out and get that Hip learning curve more fi…
  • Thankyou all for your replies, and no Michael I was not aware of that, you have enlightened me. I have to withdraw my criticism on that one. I found HipStamp by accident 3rd party through a British dealer a couple of months ago, I liked the amount o…
  • Sorry Guys, I understand where you are coming from, but that doesn't change the fact that out of about a dozen transactions, without going going back through them, I have had 3 refunds "Nil stock". Hate that word Nil stock, why should I be mailing …
