    How to remove "private listing" setting from many auctions or listings at once?

    Dear Folks:

    I have "private listing" setting on a group of auctions. And some fixed price listings

    Is there any way to change a group of them, rather than changing them one by one?

    I can't seem to find how do this in global/group edit.

    And 'private listing' only shields bidder/buyer identies in a way ebay has now been doing for a while now, and the 'private listing' bar at the top of the listing seems to be a deterrrent.

    You do realize they (eBay) remove email addresses automatically before the recipient gets it, right?

    I resorted to disguising it, which in hindsight is sorta dumb to do since half the people probably don't know what it is... I'm going to quit doing it.

    The update to the eBay app for iPhone fucking blows. The old version was so much better.

    Auctions wouldn't launch. 1 went up then the program said there was an API issue. Wouldn't have been so freaked out, but I set all my auctions to launch between 5:30 and 6. After restarting, everything went up fine. So, a little late, but all the new stuff is up.

    Exactly why I don't use the Garage Sale launcher. When I contacted them after my first week of using it, they admitted they do not have the power to release the auctions with the speed and consistency that eBay does. I just send them through to the ebay scheduler and then release them all at one time manually. Easy, Peezy and Free-zy

    Takes me about an hour to deploy 200 auctions, I do it through GS. Set it, and forget it! (I know Wes, I know)

    I would take that approach, but since I'm prepping auctions throughout the week and usually have stuff going on Sunday afternoon/evening, the GS launcher is usually a more convenient option.

    To each his own. I won't argue it.

    Any folks here sell stuff on grailed? I remember when it first launched, and saw mention of it here a few times recently...would like to hear if anyone is having success selling thru there (well as any pitfalls &c).
