    I just set Immediate Payment required for all of my auctions. Will this impact my standard allowance to "Make Offer?"

    You can't require immediate payment for auctions (unless you have a BIN option). For fixed price BIN, you can. For BIN OBO you can but it's only in effect if they BIN for the full price; if it sells via the OBO you cannot enforce immediate payment.

    ^Excellent, that's what I had hoped. I figured it'd be a major turn off if customers had to log in through their paypal or something along those lines to make the offer. Thanks!

    This is probably a stupid question, but is it legit to use buyers' emails for a Mail Chimp email blast?

    I had one of these as well. Just make sure ebay has your tracking info and they will rule in your favor.

    I've gotten emails from folks I bought from - same sorta thing - they automatically added me to an email blast. Suppose it's ok if there's an opt-out and you make it clear you're emailing because they bought from you in the past. If you have a store you can send an email to any subscribers too.

    Two separate people created their ebay accounts yesterday, presumably to buy my stuff. Both paid instantly. Don't expect any problems but over the next few days, I'll be on Blue alert.

    If an auction had three day handling, and I paid Monday morning, what is the latest I should expect to see shipping info? Wednesday or Thursday?

    The reason I ask is because I purchased a (fairly heavy) home appliance from a seller in the same city as me. The auction stated free shipping, and immediately after paying I sent the seller a message stating I would be happy to arrange a local pickup to save him some cash on shipping. I've gotten no response, and the item still hasn't shipped.
