how new are your accounts? i dont see any of this fudge with my account. i have a second account that i dont list on too often, and is newer, but its the only way i see the fudge you guys are talking about. but i dont see charges for what you guys are saying.

on another note, seems like eBay really is trying to direct listings and accounts. unless you have a TRS status, seems like making sales has become difficult.

Account from 2008. I don't think I have gotten charged for changing the listing back to not accepting offers but I don't know how to get them to stop allowing them to begin with.

Been on ebay since 2001 and when I called them last week the auto relist and shipping time issue were the result of a recent update to "help sellers"

Bought a record, tracking shows left in the mailbox, but the record is nowhere to be found. Am I out of luck?

^^ Anything here? Seller also has the same record listed again. Not saying it's a 1/1 record though.

That's not really anything to do with ebay or the seller, so much as USPS. I'd followup with them. Reach out to your mail carrier, give them the tracking number and see what they can find out. Or open a claim. If something was mis-delivered by USPS, they're the ones who should be on the hook for making it right.

I had that issue 2 years back. USPS tracking showed delivered. Figured they delivered to the wrong address since it's happened once or twice with mail, but never boxed items. Certainly not expensive items. Went to the post office. Said nothing they could do. Was out $250+.

I just negotiated the sale of 4 prints through best offer on eBay and the buyer said he would pay now, but asked if I could wait 10 days before shipping because he'll be in Europe, I said sure. Then he asked if I wouldn't mind shipping the prints to his European address through the eBay Global Shipping Program. I don't use this program for my international shipments and I'm not sure how I would add it to the already closed listings. He said he can send me the GSP address with a reference number. Anyway, I don't know if this is a sketchy thing or normal for someone to ask and I also don't know if it's possible. Anyone know how to do this?

Ive sold many things using Ebays GSP and their fees are HIGH... If you want to use the GSP refund the purchase and have them buy it with the proper address in Europe so they get an accurate cost... I would not trust a Reference # given to me by the buyer... The label does print with a reference number on it for when it arrives to ebay in Kentucky but I don't know how that # could possibly be generated by the buyer... that seems sketchy to me... I would probably try and just convince them to wait the 10 days until they get back to the US before shipping... GL

Just wait and ship it to the US address.

Does anyone know if selling rock posters works better and gets more exposure/sales in the Art Prints category or in the category for the particular band?
