I’m so sad! Your podcast has always lifted me up when I had doubts or burnout. I love following the variety of adventures you guys go on from coffee to airbnb, foodie adventures, your scavenger trips and of course eBay. But I imagine the podcast must seem like a chore with everything on your plate.
Thank you for everything…you guys are the reason my husband and I are on the full-time eBay train. We tried building on that with a consignment shop, but just recently closed our shop to start an auction house. It’s a scary new chapter, as we are relying solely on eBay for income until we get up and running. Wouldn’t have had the guts to try though if it wasn’t for you guys. Best of luck with all your endeavors!03/12/2020 at 12:32 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 453: Mistakes That Cost Us Money #75043
I can really relate to Ryanne’s comment during the podcast that if she can’t ship for a couple days, that stuff starts selling again once she gets everything shipped. I thought it was just me, as I’ve been noticing the same thing for at least the past year or more. Might be coincidence, but it’s just weird that it always seems to follow the same pattern – ship it to sell it.
Also, in regards to the PayPal issue above – I’ve had 2 similar issues recently and all I had to do was log into PayPal, go to the PayPal case and upload any tracking numbers to prove delivery. Then just waited (awhile!) and in both instances they ruled in my favor. This is what I’m going to miss once managed payments kicks in – not real confident that eBay will prove quite as seller friendly on these issues.10/22/2019 at 10:08 am in reply to: eBay Not Collecting Sales Tax When It Says It Will & Partial Return Glitches #69419
Thank you Sharyn & Sonia for the info. I will see if my state has the non-reporting basis form, which would make life so much easier. I have been viewing my orders via the “view record” drop down menu, which is where I realized that eBay is not always showing the “Sales tax (eBay collected)**” for my state. Seems like it mainly started happening in the month of October. I’ll have to crosscheck the spreadsheet Sonia is referring to.
I did notice that there is a new sales tax feature on each listing. Instead of there being a check box, there is now a dropdown menu where you have to select your state, fill in the tax percentage and then click a box indicating if you want the shipping and handling to be taxed. This is new, and even though I already have the sales tax form filled out in my preferences, I had to bulk edit my listings to update this new feature. And as Ryanne mentioned in the last podcast, if your item specifics are not correct, you have to manually edit those listings.
