A short tale of what happened to a eBay user who used to make a ok living selling websites on eBay, basically what happened was Chinese sellers moved in, bid on his auctions abused the DSR (detailed seller rating) system giving him all 1 stars & negative feedback to drive him out of business, eBay was not interested in helping him, although it would be very easy for them to see what was happening.
I was sent a little bit of info via the messaging system regarding eBay’s “Top Rated Seller” award program and its effects on listings. eBay promise “increased visibility” for your items in the best match category however theres a slight catch the listing must offer free postage it seems and also comply with some other listing stuff. Now why is this a problem you ask? well 2 things…
1) You worked hard for that badge it won’t show up on the all your listings.
2) If you add the postage cost into the end cost of item and mark it up as free postage eBays final value fee % payment increases.
eBay are basically taking a cut of the postage by forcing you to list this way, Which means more $ for eBay and less for you. Not really a good thing that is it.
BuyVCC is a site which I have ran across many times in the past. There services are designed to help you with your eBay and or PayPal account suspension issues and get you back up and running as fast as possible.
