When did taymeag stop doing auctions on ebay? I noticed today that thye only do buy it nows and with free shipping. I know they were still doing auctions 2 weeks ago. Is this a sign of the times and they weren't making enough money?

I noticed that last night when I was looking for a uctions to bid on. Then I did some snooping around and noticed the BINS were all listed Jun 6. So, figured they must have gotten their acct restricted for some reason.

ETA: they only have 110 cricut cartridges listed right now. Last night they were over 200.

And their buy it now prices sure aren't any kind of deal. The prices look like just what the carts are going for here on the cricut website.

So yeah..... I wonder what's up?

Be leary of retrato22 on EBay! I purchased 2 carts that I knew were pre-orders that had already started shipping by the time I won the auctions. Once I got the tracking info, it showed me that it started at one place, went to another, back to the original location & then finally to me about a week later. I posted a neutral feedback & the crazy lady called my home!!!! I don't know how she even got my home phone! She kept harassing me with e-mails through EBay until I finally changed my feedback just to get her to leave me alone!

I loved getting the good deals on ebay through Taymeg. Hate to see it end. Maybe they just decided to take a break for a short time. Since it's run by PC maybe someone can let us know.

I know as a long time seller on EBay, that recently their Seller Fees have almost doubled. This could be a reason Taymeag2010 could no longer have auction style and have the Cartridge sell too cheap.

I do know that Taymeag2010 is NOT the only long time seller that has either switched to BIN or lowered their inventory on EBay.

I went to the Discussion Boards on EBay and I could see anything stand out other then the Fee Increase.

thanks! I have purchased several carts from them and not had a problem but I just got the chalk board fonts I knew it was a preorder but it took almost 2 weeks to get it i did the BIN not auction. I went ahead and gave them the benifit of the dout because everything had been good before but now will think twice before I buy from them again I will not put up with a seller harrassing me I think I would report that to ebay because she should not have done that also if this helps you I saw on a seperate purchase that my phone# was on the paypal where you confirm your address.

I had been watching this seller, but, had not yet purchased from them. Being new to Cricut, I want to build my cartridge collection!

Perhaps they were on vacation. I know the auctions were pretty much constant and I would think doing business would be difficult while away.

If someone did that to me, calling my home and harassing me, I would NOT have changed my feedback for the better - I would have changed it for the WORSE!!! She has some nerve!

This happened just last week on an online order I placed. Not even realizing the company was about 30 miles away until I checked the tracking (thinking my pkg should have already been here from anywhere). My pkg went from company to a p.o. In my area, then to p.o. two hours away, then back to my p.o. It took at least a week. I complained to the company and was told once it went to FedEx, it was out of their hands. I understand that, but they should have given a better option for shipping IMO.

They are correct that they can't influence how FedEx moves their product but they can choose to ship with someone else. If enough people complain, maybe they will.

I buy alot of my cartridges from Taymeag2010 If you order more than one cartridge at a time they ship fedex then fedex post I have had packages from taymeag2010 take almost 2 weeks with fed ex and fed ex post then they are delivered by the usps, but order one cartridge and boom it's here in 2 days. Its just that Fed ex and fed ex post are slower than slow.

I couldn't believe when I won a bid a couple of weeks ago from taymeag for PaperDolls Teen Scene for $17.99! I put in one bid for that price and when I checked a day later, I had won. Seemed kind of funny to me but I'm not complaining! I got what I wanted for the price I wanted to pay BigGrin ThumpUp

Well as of this minute Taymeag 2010 has 930 items listed. 535 are auction listings.

I guess they are still in business.BigGrin

I won 2 auctions from them over a year ago. They shipped quickly and the product was perfect, so I planned on giving them positive feedback. The thing that struck me as odd, was a little computer printed note asking for positive feedback. I gave them positive feedback (since I was going to anyway) and then waited for them to reciprocate. I waited and waited and waited. After about 10 days I sent a rather snotty note to them (through ebay). THEN they gave me positive feedback.
The nerve!
