Hi, bumping thread with a question. Can you still (I know you mentioned it before, but would like to confirm as things change in months) use a credit card to pay for shipping labels in eBays new Managed Payments?0
You don’t need to worry about it, unless you have more than 10 employees. From Prop 65 FAQ: “Are any businesses exempt from Proposition 65? Yes. Small businesses with fewer than 10 employees, governmental agencies, and public water systems are exempt from the warning requirement and discharge prohibition of Proposition 65.“003/12/2020 at 10:00 pm in reply to: Ebay as a buyer question. Tracking says delivered but never received #75071
It happened a couple of days ago. We thought maybe we would receive it the next day, but here we are with no item. We did speak with Post Office and they say it was delivered, seller said same thing that it was delivered. I called eBay and they said to contact the seller. Everyone pretty much just throwing the hot potato.012/26/2019 at 10:52 am in reply to: Has anyone had his happen? Lost Chargeback Claim – Paypal #72124
They didn’t want to say what it was for. In the e-mail it only states the reason as “other.” The rep only mentioned that the buyer did not open the case for item not delivered or unauthorized transaction – she said those would be covered under seller protection. She did mention that there may be a chance the buyer’s financial institution may still side with me based on my response but it could take up to 75 days.010/23/2019 at 11:56 am in reply to: eBay Not Collecting Sales Tax When It Says It Will & Partial Return Glitches #69497
I have the same issue. eBay is supposed to start collecting taxes for my state (Texas) this month and for some they do collect it but not for others. I did remove the tax on all of the listings to see if it will start collecting the taxes for those, but nothing. I don’t even see the “Sales tax (eBay collected)**” for orders in Texas.009/20/2019 at 3:03 pm in reply to: Does Return Reason: "Doesn't seem authentic" Raise Flags on Ebay? #68069
That’s what I am thinking. Unless I get those very often then I should worry. Got one last year and now one this year, which both were bogus, but we still accepted the returns and carried on. I did call eBay Anchor support and told me that unless I don’t take care of the return and let eBay decide on the buyer’s favor, then it shouldn’t affect us.0
I think they are missing the mark, however, there is still a big issue with eBay’s new change. I think the Adblock is a non-issue. I sell items through promoted listings all of the time, so I don’t think the issue is there. What I do think is an issue, and I have confirmed it by doing a search on my store, is that your original listing will disappear in favor of the promoted listing (when eBay flags the the original listing as being ranked lower than the promoted listing). So, essentially, you will be paying MORE on promoted listings than you were before (considerably more). I run a small percentage promoted listings on all of my items perpetually and just by looking at my current ad fees, they have escalated quite a bit. I would recommend everyone look at their invoices and make sure ad fees haven’t climbed too high from what you are willing to pay.1+
Thank you for the reply, Temudgin. It just seems strange that everywhere else is higher at a commercial rate, but not on eBay. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll stop using Shipstation in a heartbeat and buy eBay labels, but I just would like some confirmation as I wouldn’t want to be hit with adjustments in the future.
Can anybody else confirm the prices shown on their shipping label screen? Thank you0
The biggest advantage to offer free returns is that you actually get seller protection this way. If there is a return that you feel buyer has abused (such as sent an item back in different condition, or worse, empty package) you have the ability to issue a refund less than 100%, the lowest being 50%, if the item sent back still retains some value. If an item is returned in a condition that has absolutely no value for resell, you can contact Ebay for coverage through seller protection. By not offering returns, you are on your own. Ebay will NOT protect you in any case when you did not offer free returns; pretty much you are on your own.012/14/2018 at 7:42 pm in reply to: Crazy Buyer trying to scam me or rightful owner of my estate sale finds? #53394
I think you are engaging too much with this person. I personally would even block them from purchasing from your store – you just don’t know how much craziness is in some people. They may try to purchase and return something different. Unless it is photographs or personal documents from them, you really don’t owe anyone, not legally (I assume you still have receipts for the transactions) or morally. The deal was between you and the Estate company. I would just tell them that they need to contact the Estate Company they worked with so they can contact you. Should the Estate company contact you (a stretch here), you may want to negotiate with them where you come out on top with some profit.012/04/2018 at 4:15 pm in reply to: USPS – The Post Office will be closed on Wednesday, December 5th #52665
From eBay’s Selling Announcements:
USPS has announced very limited operations for December 5, 2018, in observance of the National Day of Mourning for the passing of President George H.W. Bush.
All Post Office locations will be closed.
Regular mail will not be delivered.
Package delivery will be limited.
eBay will automatically protect your Seller Performance and your late shipment rate will not be impacted for USPS shipments during this closure (any defects incurred will be removed and correctly reflected in your monthly seller evaluation).
And remember, as a holiday best practice, please ensure to handle within or faster than your handling time.
Thank you for selling on eBay.012/03/2018 at 9:57 pm in reply to: USPS – The Post Office will be closed on Wednesday, December 5th #52616
I wonder if we need to do anything on our end so we are not hit on our metrics for not shipping on Wednesday. I have a one day handling, I may need to adjust to two days to cover Wednesday.0
Thank you, Mike!0
