1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Maybe someone here can help with some minor confusion.

    I won an auction 90 min ago as the only bidder on something that should have sold for far more than my bid. 30 min after the end of the auction, the seller re-listed the item before I had a chance to pay. There was no reserve price on the item.

    I just paid for the item and the guy hasn't returned my message or taken the new listing down. This guy isn't a power seller - he has 3 other items listed - and I'm not sure why he relisted something that sold and I paid for less than two hours after the end of the auction. Help? I buy and sell on Ebay at least weekly and this is the first time something like this has happened.

    He may have multiple numbers of the item. If you win the auction, it is yours.

    Thanks for such helpful info!

    As of now...nothing :embar: Previously, I was making the effort. I'm using a Sony Alpha A100 and cracked the screen awhile back and haven't had it fixed. One fatal flaw about the Sony Alpha series is that all menu controls need the LCD to make selections, unlike a Nikon.

    Rather than repair it, I may just opt for a new camera.

    Thanks again, I'll report back after I've done a bit of research!

    The latest update to the ebay mobile app will no longer let you update any items that are listed in two categories. The app only loads the primary category, so when you go in to lower the price on a BIN item, for example, it thinks you're also trying to remove the second category. It gives you can error saying "cannot remove second category." I hope they fix this soon, I manage the prices of all my BIN auctions through my phone.

    They called me last week, so I'd say yes.

    I am having the opposite problem with boxes. I ordered 2 cases of 2 different size boxes and the next day I received 20 cases of 2 different box sizes.

    Ok, forgive my asking a question that I feel like has been asked a million times, but I wasn't paying close attention to the answers when it wasn't me. :embar:

    Got my first item not received case opened. Shipped a pair of pants to Italy on 4/22, USPS tracking shows nothing after it left Chicago on 4/24, buyer in Italy says he never received it and opened a case. Should I respond, and how? I don't think I insured them, so if I have to end up eating it it's my own fault and not a huge deal, but I'd rather not have to refund him if I don't have to.

    Brian provided excellent advice to me when I faced this a couple of weeks ago. Call eBay dispute center. If you uploaded tracking you met your obligations as a seller, so if the case gets escalated, you should win automatically, but a CSR will be able to tell you.

    I was under the impression that you couldn't (or at least shouldn't) send tailored clothing into Italy, so if you completed the customs forms as clothing they may well have been intercepted. I dont know how that all works.
