eBay Seller Deals with Catch 22 Policies
I have been selling on eBay for the past 14 years, a Top Rated Seller, on and off. After the last seller performance evaluation in December, I fell to Below Standard. eBay stated I would have two months to improve.
Lo and behold, two weeks later, I find that my Good Til Cancelled listings cannot be renewed, and my fixed price-30 days cannot be relisted.
How can I improve my performance if I am restricted from adding new inventory, and renewing/relisting ended listings? My shipping time is over 90%, and what dragged me down was the post office losing/not scanning packages as "delivered." I can't improve on both of those unless I can SELL.
I am restricted to 165 listings, approximately $5,000 in listings. At this rate, I will slowly drop to those figures by the end of two months. My rating won't go up unless the low DSRs drop off that were given in January and February 2014, but there is no way to replace them with high DSRs, as I can't sell more. Being Below Standard, my listings are at the bottom of any searches.
Thanks for letting me vent. eBay doesn't make it easy to improve if they restrict sellers from selling.
