    What is your opinion on the state of eBay in the past year or so? It is such an inconsistent program for the last year. Does anyone have any consistency?

      Thanks for the comment!

      I think in order to make money on eBay, you have to treat it like a job. As long as you are listing consistently and listing items that are in demand, you will make money. Sellers also have to keep up on eBay policy and eBay’s recommendations. Like it or not, if you want to stay competitive, you need to be offering free shipping, participating in the promoted listings program, etc. etc. That’s just the way it is.

  2. Is there a way to request ebay to send me a list of items I have sold in the past 30 months ?

    Thanks

      eBay only allows you to have access to 90 days of sales data. After that, you’re on your own. You could subscribe to Terapeak which lets you go back 1 full year. eBay recently purchased Terapeak, but from what I have heard, subscriptions will still offer more info than the information eBay will be offering for free.

    There are a lot of Ebay listings for sheets now that claim “100% egyptian cotton or cotton, but upon reading the description of the listing, they are made from microfiber, not cotton. How would one alert ebay to this fraudulent activity? I used to be able to screen out microfiber when shopping for sheets by adding the 100% cotton phrase. It’s no good now.

      You might want to contact the seller first. It’s possible they made a mistake. Otherwise, you can “report a seller.” Click “report item” on the bottom right side of the listing page. Hope the helps!

    I recently heard about obtaining personal delivery from state to state by people traveling to earn extra money. Anyone heard of such a thing? There is a small table on EBay that I want to buy in the Tampa area and be delivered to the Columbus, Ohio area,

    I have been selling on eBay for 15 years and never had a bad experience until today. A buyer did not read the material composition as posted on my listing and requested a refund which I denied. She filed a claim and eBay offers to help – only their form gives the seller no option but to accept the request for refund. Where is the sellers protection? They said they can’t prove it. However, if they looked at my listing they can clearly see the description. When I called customer service, they offered me no assistance whatsoever. How disappointing. eBay has competition now and I will need to consider other options given this experience.

      Hi! You might try calling eBay again. How much was the item worth? I wouldn’t let one bad experience end your career as a seller. Did eBay give you the option to have the seller return the item?

    I bought a apple iPhone 6s plus from eBay and after opening phone, I found phone is in dead condition and I am unable to put it on even after charging the phone battery .

    I reported the matter on eBay customer service and after they have asked me to take the product to apple service station instead of replacing or giving my money .

    It is eBay responsibility to give me a product in working condition why should I do all the running about now for taking the replacement from apple .

    eBay guarantee seems to be fake promise .

      Hi! Just open an “item not as described” case and eBay will cover you.
