eBay Reduces Value of Shipping Supply Perk for Stores
When eBay last raised the prices for owning a store, they threw in a quarterly coupon for eBay branded shipping supplies. I bought a wide variety of boxes and some envelopes, and was pretty happy with this perk.
They now no longer offer any of the smaller sized boxes, and the number of items carried seems to be less than half of what they had before.
When I raised this issue with the supplier, they said they were only carrying the best selling items, but I have to wonder if the 18 inch boxes they now have sell that much better than 12 x 12 x 12 boxes they used to carry.
This is disappointing and creates the impression that eBay is an unreliable partner. The coupon is not worth much if the selection of supplies is a poor fit for your business.
I really miss the smaller boxes.
