Tough week on eBay for us. Fewer sales and fewer high dollar sales. Just a week when no one wanted what we had to sell.
We did want to dedicate this week’s post to a big question/survey: immediate payment on offers. We accepted three offers this week and none of the buyers paid. We just got ghosted. What happened to eBay’s announcement that payments would be automatically charged once offers were accepted?
Ryanne and I each have a buying account. When we sends an offer, eBay asks her how she wants to be charged if offer is accepted. When I send an offer to a seller, eBay doesn’t ask for payment and I can pay whenever I want. So it feels automatic payment is on the buying side and must be still in testing phase?
Any experience on your end?
