Got a mail from the nice people over at BuyVCC.com, they now have a help page up with some different guides on various eBay/PayPal related matters for people who have been screwed over by the drones working the services over at eBay. Some of the topics covered accessing eBay safely, how eBay/PayPal track you and how to work around these things. Anyway take a look links below :
Another seller ruined by the glorious DSR system. In this case its all about “dispatch time” now the problem here is the seller puts in the listing theirs a 4 day dispatch time, it again shows no buyer reads the listings, this seller tried to prove to eBay that the items were sent out in line with the 4 day handling (via receipts etc) but that was no good for the glorious leader, eBay actually forced a 1 day handling and dispatch time on them which then cost the seller more money in travelling costs etc. and after all this they still suspend the seller when they are not at fault.
A story from 2012 detailing how eBay took a profit making business and drove it into the ground, the end result being the staff on job seekers allowance. The reason given for this mess seems to be in the DSR system which everyone knows is a complete load of crap, in this case the seller had got 13 low DSRs based on a sales figure of about £12k to £15k a month so I don’t know how many items that is, the article says it was 2% of the sales that left the low scores, 13 out of 568 ,but this seems totally crazy to me.
