eBay's Amazon-like Initiatives Drive Seller to Try Amazon
Interesting morning trying to list and relist on eBay. I had 40 or so auctions to relist this morning. Half of them would not relist unless I added a shipping program (all of them did have valid shipping in the original ad).
So I clicked on the drop down and found that eBay had set up several hundred rules for me and there was no way to find the one that was already in the ad. After spending an hour trying to work through the relist issue, none are relisted. So I move over to Turbolister to do some new ads.
I have been very diligent revising my current BIN ads and all new ads with UPC numbers. Clicked on upload and all rejected for no product associated with the UPCs. Went to eBay support and says to put in NA, since does not apply will not fit! What a great way to get the UPCs in the ads!
eBay has sent me a clear message over the last six months, that they want to be like Amazon. So, after 18 years on eBay only, I have moved a third of my sales to Amazon.
As "smart" as eBay is, if they want to be like Amazon, I better start selling on Amazon. When I finish this email, I will go over to Amazon and list these items that eBay is making so difficult to list!
