Sellers from Jersey Must Wait for eBay Express

A reader in The Channel Islands said he can't get his listings to appear on eBay Express UK because The Channel Islands had been slightly overlooked by eBay as being part of the UK. (The Channel Islands comprises of several small islands around the south west coast of the United Kingdom, he said.)

Official response from eBay: "The Express team is aware of this oversight and they expect to have the fix in place by mid-November."

I'm sorry he's going to have to wait. He says sales are down due to the rollback of stores-in-search, and despite listing more auctions (his fees have doubled), sales are not profitable. Here's hoping eBay engineers are working overtime to help the sellers in The Channel Islands get listings onto eBay Express UK in time to benefit from holiday shopping activity.

And, if you are interested in improving your geography, here's the Wikipedia entry for the Channel Islands. Factoid: they comprise two separate countries: the bailiwick of Guernsey and the bailiwick of Jersey, and have a total population of about 160,000.

I have to say the name Express and the Channel Islands may bot be best linked when sailings to the island are cancelled due to bad weather in the winter!

Sorry, tongue in cheek comment. Amazing ommission by eBay in reality.

Well I sure hope he's in one of the categories that are being opted in, because US sellers have been waiting for some of the other categories to be included. 6 months since EE launch we're still being neglected by ebay. Open up the vintage categories for clothing and jewelry or create a category for us within the collectibles cat. Buyers love our merchandise, even more during the holiday season

The Channel Islands are not part of the UK. Have you read the wikipedia entry yourself?
