CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

They could send to a US address and you’d be out 200 dollars.I'm a novice eBayer and have some questions for selling and shipping international.
(I have just read through the recent GSP / international discussion.)
My question is if I am selling to a buyer in Japan or South Korea, what would be the pitfall of listing some NOS vintage shoes at a
price of $50 with a shipping handling at $200
price of $200 with a shipping handling at $50
somewhere in between
The first way might would attract more interest since the heavy import tax is less.
Well, mostly yes and maybe a little no. I have used maybe seven or eight Working Capital loans and they have been terrific. In fact, I have one now for a recent major inventory purchase, and the principal reason I have ignored all of bay's entreaties to opt in to Managed Payments is because of concern that I will not be able to get further WC loans. I love that I get those loans (multiple times a year) with no credit check dinging my score, and can pay them back aggressively with 30% of sales. My last one was done in a month. Fantastic.Is it true that if you opt in for Ebay's managed payments, you are ineligible for Working Capital loans?
It's basically an option for the seller who doesn't want to be hassled with shipping internationally directly.I have ANOTHER international shipping question. Has anyone started using (or consciously decided against using) Ebay International Standard Delivery? I kinda know what it is, but I don't have any real way of evaluating whether or not it is a good idea, as compared with just checking off the box for First Class International. (In what I've looked at, I don't really see where the buyer saves shipping money with International Priority, maybe it is all in duties, etc. I can't even make heads or tails out of why my nearly identical listings have large differences in shipping costs. That's another post though.)
So: Ebay International Standard Delivery?
I thought that was GSP, this sounds like it is still the seller shipping directly.It's basically an option for the seller who doesn't want to be hassled with shipping internationally directly.
It does sound that way in the announcement, but see here for the real details...I thought that was GSP, this sounds like it is still the seller shipping directly.
Beginning in February, eBay international standard delivery will be available to all sellers. This new program supports shipments to over 210 countries, offers better tracking visibility and includes late delivery protections for standards, service metrics, and feedback. If you ship to...community.ebay.com
So, this is basical GSP with First Class international pricing as a possibility (at least on the item I was comparing shipping estimates for) and without ebay charging and collecting all the import duties, etc. Huh.It does sound that way in the announcement, but see here for the real details...
eBay international standard delivery enables sellers on eBay.com to ship their items to buyers in over 210 countries. Simply print your eBay international standard delivery label and we’ll handle international shipping for you.www.ebay.com
