Yes, but the $1,000,000 will just be the foot in the door. I'm sure they will slowly lower that number until it affects most of us. Not to mention, if big sellers begin to drop off, that will mean less revenue for eBay. Less revenue for eBay will inevitably mean higher fees for those of us who stick around.

Hey guys! Not sure if this was answered before. If a customer requests you to shp the item to a different address other thang he Paypal verified address, is that ok? After making the payment customer requested this through the eBay messaging system.

Thanks.

I think you lose seller protection if you don't use a paypal verified address.

Deliver to PayPal address.

There is a way around it. You will need to refund his payment and have him pay again. When he goes through checkout, there is an option to add a new 'ship to' address for the transaction. Once he adds it there, you will be covered under the seller protection.

I thought we were talking about the current proposal, not what may happen in the future.

Thanks guys. I went with Wes's suggestion and the customer agreed.

Those cards have to be loaded with cash, I think. Anyone who says they have a card but can't pay cash is up to something.

I listed a car on kijiji last year and I got a few of these stories.

 

Thanks both - couldn't check back here in time and the guy showed up, paid via PayPal, I immediately transferred to my bank, and that was a week ago - no problems in the interim.  It was a true credit card (PayPal charged me 2.9% - if it were debit / bank account / PayPal balance I would not have been charged to receive the funds, I'm fairly certain).  Anyway, I guess some folks don't have cash, but do have credit cards and don't mind paying it off at 10%+ interest or whatever.

Ditto that - I was in the dark on all J. Crew and took a chance on 2 sport coats - both Ludlow - one was of Loro Piana fabric - both did way better than anticipated.

Thanks, before your response, I hit up the store and got a few j. Crew, sure enough I get home, read the post about the ones with the 2 dots being from the outlet, check the tags...

Bam!  I'm 1 for 4 facepalm.gif oh well, I know better now, and I think these things are nice anyways.  Hope they will sell.

On another note regarding the 200,000 listings, I'm doing about 20 auctions on 1 day auto re-up, no big sell offs there.  But about 20 more items I put on 3 day and sold about half.  These were items that were languishing on 30 day BIN, almost all have sold with one bid, but my stuff usually goes that way anyways, and I put the starting bid at the BIN price - no not true I lowered a few.  If I was more organized I would've had a list prepared and what sold at what blah, blah blah.  TLDR - if you got the free 200,000 listings take your stuff off BIN now and 3 day auction it at your BIN price.

I've started shipping sportcoats using USPS Priority Regional Rate Box A (great tip, BrianPore), but right now, I'm just packing them with tissue paper. I'd like to have some kind of protective plastic bag around them, but I'm not finding anything that looks good in regular packing supplies. Any recommendations?

You can get most sport coats into the Tyvek USPS Priority or Express mail envelopes, then put that in the flat rate box.

I am probably too much of a straight arrow on this issue but I am sure that is a misuse of the Tyvek envelope.

It is. I just went on Amazon and searched "poly mailer" or whatever and bought a couple hundred of the 12"x15" ones, work great.
