Why decide between poly mailers or boxes? I ship ties in a cardboard box placed inside a poly mailer. :lol:

What a pain in the ass, I will have to call ebay about the shipping labels because it will affect my one day handling time record for the second tracking #. 

Happened to me just now. Reprinted them. Except in my case, every label printed/reprinted except one. Didn't work with bulk shipping tool, and didn't work when I tried to print it standalone. Ebay says system unavailable, try again later.

 

Edit: It gets better. When I reprint (to pdf) each individual label, the label is oriented in the same direction as the page and spans the whole page, instead of the standard orientation with two labels on one page. This obviously won't work on my sticky labels (2 to a page), and even if I printed it on standard paper, it'll be a mess with the small tie boxes.

The bigger issue is how much space the packages take up in transit. Just sayin'. Too each his own, I suppose.

I suggest sellers block this shitforbrains.

Complained about shipping prices. Then asked what Brioni Bangkok is (I even included an explanation in the fucking listing), speculated that the pants might not even fit him (mind you, he did not ask if there was room to let the pants out). And then tells me he's done way more business on EBay than I'll ever dream of!!?

This seems to be the norm now.  Has this continued to happen to anyone?

Already updated the funding source, so that didn't help, and it's charging my account, although last time it just purchased one of 2.

Yep. They printed just fine on Sunday, but I had this same issue last night and this morning.

As long as you don't purchase them twice, it's just a nuisance. Funny, as this happened to me, I was thinking what a huge PIA it must be to someone that has 400 auctions.  Sorry Spoo.
