  1. I do not use any optional automation, as the automation that is forced on me is bad enough. What it’s “supposed” to do is not always what I want it to do. Much worse yet is that what it is “supposed” to do is not always what it actually does. I can’t count how many times I’ve heard stories of eBay’s shipping calculation giving free shipping to a buyer when it was supposedly not set up that way.

  2. I use a few automation but have to be careful using calculated shipping, I combine shipping which works good but when it comes to shipping, ebay doesn’t adjust the shipping weight. So if you sell 4 items, set shipping at 4 oz, when ebay totals them up it, it show 16 oz or 1st class to priority class but weigh only 4 ounces.

  3. Ebay automation used to fail as much as it worked, especially the code that was supposed to auto-relist or not. But more recently they must have reworked that functionality because it has worked perfectly for me. I use automation to auto-relist auctions (until I don’t want to anymore) and also to send offers to watchers. Both have worked perfectly for at least three months. And I am pleasantly rewarded with extra sales from the special offers that I set up months ago. I don’t use automation for shipping costs.

  4. I have “combined shipping” turned on for eBay but still get shoppers buying multiple individual items, then messaging and asking if I can combine shipping. I think it’s that they don’t realize that putting the items in their cart and then checking out would combine the shipping?

    On Etsy I use shipping profiles, which isn’t quite the same but it helps! When USPS changes rates, I only have to adjust a few profiles, which isn’t hard to do.
