Two eBay Sellers Encounter Some Oddities Today
I am a 10+ year eBay seller in managed payments. By chance, I clicked on a sale today that seemed to have an unusually low payout for the sale amount. There was a 0.45 cent international fee on the sale, but I don't sell international and the sale is going to Virginia.
I called eBay and they said they didn't know why it was on there and they would remove it (that was hours ago and it's still not removed). I have screen shots if you want them. By the way, I am a long time reader here and want to express my sincere gratitude for your work, it has been a great help to me.
For the first time I got an order this morning and not only does eBay not give the email address but they don't even give the name!
I'm supposed to ship a package to someone based on a funky name that looks similar but not identical to their eBay user ID. I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this?
NOTE: eBay officially announced the practice of anonymizing buyer email addresses in today's Fall Seller Update, but it does not apply to buyer names.
