I’m sure this subject has been discussed previously, but I don’t recall reading about it.
My question is how can it even be legal that eBay can charge a final value fee on shipping? It just doesn’t even make any sense to me how it can be legal to charge a fee for something they did not have to put any effort into.
If they wanted to stop excessive shipping charges by some sellers all they had to do it set up reasonable allowable shipping charges based on USPS rates.
I believe that that used to do that on music CD’s and DVD’s. Maybe they still do?
Has anybody reported the “page views counter” malfunction?
I have listed a few items last night, and noticed that when I clicked on the link in the listing confirmation email, it opened the item, which has by then been live for under a minute showing 22-page views which seemed odd as my items are an exclusive choice for certain collectors.
When I refreshed the page, views went up by 2, every subsequent refresh has automatically added an increment of 2 without a fail until I shut the page down, tried it again today, and same thing continues to add an increment of 2 views!
Any thoughts on that?
Any idea what is going on with eBay sales? I am down 26% for the last 30 days. I have never had just slow sales for the last few years.
I don’t think it’s me, it’s like eBay has died (maybe it should).
Have any other sellers been having slow sales?
