Don’t waste your time (and money) selling on eBay anymore. All seller will be forced into their “managed payments” program after July 15, 2020. Managed payments means eBay holds ALL SELLER FUNDS for 3-4 days, then sends it too you, and tells you it takes 3-5 business days for it to hit your bank accounts. I had too wait 10-12 days too see ANY money, had too pay shipping out of my pocket and wait too be reimbursed. The buyers had the items 5-7 days BEFORE I EVER SAW A DIME. With PayPal I saw my money minus fees in minutes NOT DAYS OR WEEKS. Holding our money to invest in money markets too profit even more off of the sellers WHO MAKE ALL THE MONEY FOR EBAY BECAUSE EBAY DOES NOT SELL ANYTHING. I guess when the banks gambled in the markets with OUR MONEY and lost OUR MONEY and needed BILLIONS IN GOVERNMENT RELIEF TO SAVE THEM DIDN’T TEACH EBAY ANYTHING. When they lose the gamble THE SELLER WILL BE THE REAL LOSERS.
I was selling for close to 2 years, until I realized that I’m loosing money when based on eBay’s fees, I’m still supposed to be making money (profit.)
THE FEES FROM EBAY, & PAYPAL RIP YOU OFF!
They don’t tell you exactly all fees, & behind your back all your profits go straight to THE EBAY & PAYPAL PARTNERS!
If you wish to make little or bigger money & stay with it, than this is NOT for you!
eBay uses you as their sales guy, you work for eBay, & at the end of the day they rip you off with their hidden fees, I’m referring to both eBay & PayPal partners!
Thank you for keeping me busy working for you,
And Another thank you for taking my very little profit at the billing cycle.
EBay was once one of the best websites on the internet, where users could do business seamlessly and with ease, however, in recent times, due to that graceful and plentiful commerce solution not agreeing with the agenda of the new owners (the easily accessible solution for third party sellers to sell used items (coupled with the massive user base)), they decided to make the process as difficult as possible for the small seller, while robbing you of as much cash in the meantime as they possibly can(through their lovely subsidiary, PayPal). It is a very very sad thing to see this website with so much potential to be so very beautiful become compromised to the “national elites”, purposely putting it to waste.
I’ve been a user of eBay for 18 years, I believe, and the scope of sellers and products (especially new or unopened products) has only continued to expand. The services and reliability have also improved with reminder emails and Best Offer capability.
During the COVID period and staying at home, I have actually utilized eBay MORE than usual, especially as a Buyer.
And the Saved Search feature has been wonderful in my ability to find tennis shoes that have been discontinued for 6-7 years. EBay does the work, I get that email saying a pair has been listed.i buy them at excellent value prices and I have been able to keep 1-2 in inventory. Fantastic experience.
eBay will allow people to steal from you and lie to you and ebay will still take the buyers side. There is nothing you can do to stop this as a seller other than to take your selling some where else. If you don’t want to be taken advantage of don’t use eBay. I am deleting my eBay account that I have had for 10 years because of this. I have had it. Save your self the time and trouble and sell locally. Screw eBay. If you use eBay you’re literally paying them to let people take advantage of you and abuse eBay money back guarantee. Your own return policy does not matter. eBay will force the return even when you get ripped off for both the item and your money from the sale!!!!
The app is good, but there’s some issues that need to be addressed. I’m a top rated and power seller that sells about 100 items a day. There’s a lot of items that never get delivered to my buyers, so i like to check through my sold history what didn’t get delivered. So when I go through my sold history eventually after continuously scrolling down the app crashes. Maybe they can add a shipped option, and exempt delivered option to prevent the overload/crash. Also there used to be a option to search a order by username in search section under search history but now it doesn’t work. Would like that feature back as well.
I have been using the eBay app for a month now and have had so many issues with it at this point that I’ve been considering no longer using it at all. The app constantly changes things from listing prices to shipping methods to package weights you can’t seem to ever get it to put in the correct values. And once it does don’t expect it to stay that. I’ve had a number of listing listed at 100 or more change to 10 or 30 once I hit done. They need to get this under control as it cause an issue with a buyer already that was extremely stressful and shouldn’t have happened in the first place.
My stepmom recently bought my sister a signed kpop album of UNB on eBay over 80 dollars back in January. However, the COVID19 pandemic soon started, so she didn’t think much of it not coming yet, understanding the situation. However, she’s now seeing that it was never shipped, and it’s already May, and eBay now won’t let her ask anything about it since it’s over 90 days. It’s really unfair and eBay needs to change that, and you guys won’t even pick up the phone for customer support, just telling us to go to your website.
I was looking forward to selling a lot of high value items I came across due to a family member passing, but discovered as I was listing my first item that they require you to have a PayPal account to receive payment for anything sold. I refuse to sign up with PayPal after I ended up in NUMEROUS battles with them over money they practically stole. Because eBay has no other way to give you your money, I am unable to sell here, therefore I will no longer be spending my money here either.
I sent a customer a ACER computer product. Customer said it did not have the correct download. Customer send me back a SAMSUNG computer. Not the same, definitely. Also the Samsung is thrashed, but that’s not the point. EBay did not even read the information that I had sent. I want my Acer computer back, not some piece of other crap.! My point is I want back the same product that I refunded. You do it for the buyers side but not the seller. NOT RiGHT!
