I agree that lack of pro-active communication from GoDaddy re: the issues is unacceptable. I just think that ebay deserves more of the blame for the overall problem, UNLESS there is some other, better, solution that that people are using as an alternative to GDBK that somehow avoided the MP-related datastream issues. If there is one, someone please shout it from the rooftops! 🙂 I know that Wave solved J&R’s bank linking issue, but I haven’t heard anything about Wave wrt all the MP issues discussed on this thread.
At the risk of beating a dead horse, I’m going to repeat that I believe that most (not all) of the GoDaddy issues that arose with the advent of Managed Payments are ebay issues that are not GoDaddy’s fault. GDBK can only display what ebay sends to them.
I pulled up each month’s invoice to find the UPS and FedEx fees, then looked to find them in GoDaddy, and manually entered the ones that were missing.05/04/2021 at 1:39 am in reply to: Do you keep record of tracking numbers when delivered? #88441
How long have you been doing this and how many times have you actually had to use these records of delivery during that time, and how much money/time did it save you in those instances? That will tell you whether it’s worth your time or a waste of it.
I don’t do anything like this and have never, in four years of part-time selling, encountered a situation where I needed it.05/02/2021 at 9:46 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 512: Want To Hear A Sad to Happy Story? #88339
It took me a moment to realize you meant to say “hymn” book. I hope you didn’t send them the other thing, lol.
Yup – definitely a pill box hat. Very fancy with the feathers – great find!04/27/2021 at 9:59 pm in reply to: Winchester38's Journal – A Journey To Full-time Reselling #87970
Thanks for the update! So interesting to hear your progress. Glad it’s going very well.
What does “took a dividend of $80k” mean? Is that the amount you paid yourselves? and how is that different from “the $96k that we personally received from the business”?04/21/2021 at 9:59 pm in reply to: What kind of light fixture is this and what is it worth? #87704
Search for “tiffany style hanging lamp” on ebay and you’ll see some that are similar to the one you’ve got sprinkled in among the more ornate ones.
wow – that’s fantastic!
I see that same behavior frequently.
I have been wondering something about about mileage tracking apps for a long time:
Consider this scenario: You go shopping for personal/food items at a location 30 miles away – that’s the main reason you are going there. 5 miles before you get there, you stop at a thrift store that’s on the way. Then on the way back home, you stop at another thrift store that is 10 miles from home.
I assume that the mileage app divides this up into 4 trips:
1) 25 miles from home to thrift
2) 5 miles from thrift to food store
3) 20 miles from food store to second thrift store
4) 10 miles from second thrift store to home.
How do you mileage-app-using folks classify each of these 4 trip segments? I don’t use one, and for such scenarios I would log zero business miles b/c I incurred no extra miles above what I would have in order to travel to the store that was my main destination.
Glad to hear you got it all straightened out. Definitely a pain.
Just last week I had a First Class item get delivered after a month in transit. And another one a few weeks before that. Luckily the buyers didn’t complain at all. No such problems with Priority anymore, though.
Because of this trend, I try to use Priority as much as possible, and sometimes I add insurance to FC packages. Yes, it makes things more expensive for the buyer, but if they want guaranteed delivery, then they need to pay for it.
Oh wow – that sounds great (re: not having to pack).
Wouldn’t the buyer have to send the QR code to the driver and have them present it to me so I can scan it? Seems like too much to rely on, unless I’m not understanding the process correctly.
