    Pretty sure I got both when I upped it to 500. I'm getting close to ready to go the next level... I think I'll wait until July 1, since I'll be gone most of June.

    Yep. I even googled to verify. 600 is the limit. Still a lot of listings to work with, but it could be a hinderance I suppose.

    I think you can see other peoples stuff. I hope so anyway. Will you check for me. Go to my store on your app and search Kiton. One of them fell beyond the 600 mark on my phone.

    EDIT: Just checked Linda's store and I can see all 100K+ listings

    +1, That's what I'm saying. And actually you only save $0.10 per listing. So even at 500 listings it's only 50 bucks. So stopping when you run out of "free" listings doesn't really make sense. If you could pay an extra 10 cents to make an extra 50 bucks on a sale, you probably should do it. lol

    How many of you use listing upgrades? I've always wondered if Bold, dual category, etc would actually be worth the extra expense.

    With all this talk about free listings at one level or another, I thought I'd post this:

    It convinced me to upgrade from a basic store yesterday, based on my activity it will save me $50 a month in fees.

    +1, that's the only way to do it right. Fill out the fields as accurately ay you can using averages of your historical data and let the calculator do the rest.

    Rarely. If I have a highly valuable item that needs a little more exposure, I might do a double category listing.

    Bold is a waste of money. Use your photo to make you stand out in the crowd.

    Buyer wants me to wait a week before shipping, guess I have to take a hit on the 90% shipments then? Don't have option to print label past this Saturday?

    If he paid you can print it now and just leave it to the side.

    That won't work anymore with the new defucked system. The new standard is tracking uploaded and scanned within the stated handling time.

    Yeah going to try eBay and see what they say. I think I'm at 100% in new standards so should be fine, just a hassle

    I have dropped packages off and they dont get scanned until they hit their next milestone somewhere out there. Does this mean i should now drop them off to the attendants and have them give me a receipt?

    I wouldn't worry too much. That's why its a 90% standard with a 3 month grace/rebound period.
