Dear Ina,
Is eBay collections a thing of the past?

Dear Ina,
I’m concerned about how eBay AU handled the change to GTC. This is an excerpt from an eBay Community discussion board thread on 3/2/19 (message #47):

“Guess you don’t want to be listing or selling in ebay Au right now… eBay changed our 30 day listings to GTC from 19 February 2019 – but they didn’t wait for the 30 day listings to end…just changed them to GTC at the end of the cycle!! Imagine the surprise when a seller’s 30 days listings rolled-over, change to GTC then got hit with the listing fees…”

This article (via Avalara) is a very important listing of how the Wayfair ruling affects remote sellers.

I hope you’ll publish it for all your readers.

Dear Ina,
Please do a story about searches in Google show little to no results of eBay. I think that this is why our sales are little to none.

The only way that you can find listings on Google is if it is exact titles or keywords. Give it a try.
