PayPal hell...

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 31, 2014, 5:44 AM

For commission inquiries and price quotes, pleased contact me at:

As mentioned before I WON'T be accepting new plush commission until I've completed the whole current list. It would put too much pressure on me as my work load is already huge.

It's that time of the year again! Someone decided to file a chargeback/claim without any form of decent contact >_<
Paypal can be your best friend but there are times things can get nasty. I've experienced it once or twice before with a buyer. 

Basically the story is; someone bought two plushies from me on Etsy recently. They paid and I shipped the parcel to it's destination a few days later. All as it should go. Then, not even a week later I get a notice from Paypal that the same buyer has contacted them to open a dispute against me with the reason it was an unauthorized transaction and they now want their money back! Wtf?

What does this mean? Well, my guess is someone used daddy dearest credit card and went on a shopping spree without permission. That or the card was stolen and used unrightfully. But my guess goes to the first one.

I'm doing all I can and am trying to get in a contact desperately with the buyer to solve the issue or at least find out what the problem is. But of course, as expected said person has yet to respond to my emails and messages and I doubt they will. Ugh, so frustrating! I'm a honest, reasonable seller and am willing to solve things as civilized people, don't ignore me or run away! And I'm definitely not going down without a fight. >:I

I seriously hope that, if they get the refund (probably, PayPal usually chooses the buyer's side) I will at least get my plushies (the blue bell fox and raccoon) back :c I'd hate to see them go like that.

Moniek Zeilstra
Etsy shop:…

Hi all!
My name is Moniek Zeilstra, a 25 year old hobbyist. I graduated for my paraveterinary education because I absolutely LOVE animals! I live in a small village in the Netherlands (Holland), located in Europe.

My passion is making stuffed animals, realistic or cartoony. I mostly create fursonas, realistic animals and mythical creatures but will try to do anything that fits my style though. Since 3 years ago I've been doing commissions for people and don't plan on quitting with that anytime soon.
My goal is to make detailed, high quality crafts for an affordable fee!

Beside sewing I also draw and sculpt at times. Basically I'm one for trying out things so more activities will probably added in the near future c:

Next to creativity I also enjoy anime/manga and japanese culture a lot and go to conventions in cosplay occasionally.

Thank you for taking a look at my gallery! And always feel free to follow my work :D

Who's gonna win the FIFA World Cup in Brazil? :)

Question: woul you make a plush toothless if commissioned?
goiku Featured By Owner 1 day ago
Yes, I would ^^

The comission guidelines make it clear you're not going to make any pokemon and I don't know your stance on digimon but given your apparent love of kitsune i was wondering whether you'd consider making a Kyubimon plush. I was thinking of commissioning one when you open up comissions again but it's better to ask now than to wait and be disappointed later.

Also, I saw something about a Bijuu Mode Kurama before, any chance we're gonna see him soon?
goiku Featured By Owner 5 days ago
Yes, I would consider making a Kyubimon ^^ 
Bijuu Kurama will have to wait a little longer. I'm embroidering all those black markings and that's pretty difficult.

Hey Goiku~ 
I am loving the new plushies by you!
I had a question though, do you do
repairs on plushies for those that commissioned you?
Kitty's eye colors are starting to fade away. D:
Maybe theres something I can do to fix it myself?
Let me know! 
Thank you so much! ^^
goiku Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014
Oh dear. I'm sorry to hear that. I've had one person with the same problem before. The material isn't supposed to fade so you must be one of the few who had a plush done with manufacturer flaw in the transfer material.
Could you please let me know the measurements of the eyes? I will send you a pair of embroidered eyes (same style) as a replacement that you can either glue or sew on yourself with ease. The only thing I would ask of you is to cover the slight shipping fee so i can send them savely to you ($2.50 USD).
SquishyPaws Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Thank you so much!
Ill give it to you tomorrow, its 3 in the morning now. xD
Ill note you actually whenever I get the measurements. 
And sure Ill be happy to pay for shipping, thank you again
for your help. :)
