Sales Stagnate for This eBay Seller

By: Reader
Sponsored Link
Dear Ina,
Regarding the letters from two sellers saying sales on eBay are way down, I can state that I have not had a single sale since April 4. 

I sold about 100 items per month from 1999-2012 until Cassini was instituted, and then it dropped to about 30 items per month after that. 

Then late last year I got ripped off by eBay, PayPal, USPS, Albania Customs and a buyer all as one group of thieves, so I switched to a Basic Store for a few months offering only better items worth enough to pay Registered Mail on for shipping abroad. Sales then dropped to one ... Read More

How Can eBay Decide to Relist a Seller's Listings?

By: Reader
Sponsored Link
Dear Ina, 
Have you seen this? Really - eBay MAY relist our fixed price listings?

How do you know if they will or not and if you relist from TurboLister or a third party and they do from the old listing you will get zapped for duplicate listings.

I run quantity in my listings. If they relist the quantity will not renew and I would have to watch closely or lose listing over time as they count down. Plus what happens if you want to relist but with a price change?

The arena of controlling communications with buyers is another kettle of issues.
Pete

Seller Seeks Alternative to Canada Post

By: Reader
Sponsored Link
Dear Ina,
Thanks for publishing the Canada Post press release on Monday (May 8th). While it is no secret that CPC is among the most expensive postal services on Earth due to their lack of competition, they may now have cause for concern. 

I was recently sent some targeted advertising from a Canadian company called Chit Chats Express who claim to be able to offer package forwarding to the United States at half the CPC rates. I first became aware of them as alternative during the postal labor unrest last summer, but they only operated from a few Canadian locations (i.e Vancouver and Toronto). 

According to their ... Read More

My Most Famous eBay Customer and What He Bought

By: Reader
 
Dear Ina,
The death of noted film director Jonathan Demme last week brought special meaning and sadness to me. I have been now selling on eBay for 19 years this month and over the years I have made a few sales to notable people. Prior to Demme my most famous customer was Walter Koenig, the actor who played Chekov on the original Star Trek. 

Well, a few years ago I listed a Haitian oil painting depicting a burning village. I acquired it from a local estate auction in Holbrook MA I used to go to weekly (they went bankrupt 2 years ago). I listed it ... Read More

eBay Restricts Sellers from Fully Communicating with Buyers

By: Reader
 
Dear Ina,
Good evening. Boy just when you they the rocket scientist at eBay have put Hal 2000 in charge of their systems. They go one step further to once again prove they are operating on Fortran or CPM80.
 
We had a potential customer reach out to us today with a question of application on one of our products. The item was not the correct item, but we do carry and list the item that would work on eBay.
 
As I typed in the response to this eBay member. I did what I have done in the past, I pulled the eBay item number (even typed it ... Read More
