That's insane on the Yakface. It is a joke how the buyer has 100 percent of the power.

Glad to hear people talk about this. The sales tax thing sucks big time because the states are essentially collecting it twice for the same item. I have to pay tax now on everything I buy on eBay and for sure it is driving me away. They should allow you the option of opting out and paying it on your own if you want to, or not.

The thing that really has me worried is this “managed payments” BS they are getting ready to force on everyone. So much for the ease and simplicity of PayPal...they are moving to some kind of new payment system sellers will be required to use. It doesn’t sound good.

At this point I just want to dump the stuff I have and get out of it altogether. Sadly that is going to take awhile though.

The good until cancelled only and auto relist thing on ALL buy-it-now listings should've been enough for people to firebomb ebay's headquarters.  A trick to rake in listing fees.   I think ebay is suicidal sometimes.

I also had a no-payer recently....FROM DOWN UNDER.

That move definitely affected my sales. Ebay used to send pepole who were watching my listings reminders that the listing was about to end, and that would shake loose a few sales and act as free advertising. I would purposely run 10 day listings for that purpose. When that dried up I felt the difference.

It hasn't put me over the edge past my free listings per month, but I get the luxury of selling multiple items under one listing as opposed to a million u ique items.

Uggghhhhh

Ever have someone buying your things on eBay, and you just might know them, and don't want to do business with them?  Just ran into that.  As soon as I realized who it was I cancelled the order, sent out a refund and blocked him as a buyer.  I just can't deal with this guy.

Pemmican thief wasn't a planned part of my resume, but it's a welcome one.

Absolutely.  Gotta like Pemmican and be ok with northern Pesos but otherwise all good.

Pemmican is meat right?  That won't work.  Are vegetarians allowed in Canada?  Got a veggie version?

Pemmican is indeed meat.  Regrettably as we are much more culturally sensitive than our neighbours to the south, if you are unwilling to honour the traditions of our Aboriginal peoples you are not allowed in, other than as a food item.  None of our Aboriginal tribes were vegetarian or vegan so this is no longer allowed under Canadian law as it would be deemed insensitive to those who first conquered these beautiful lands.  If you are prepared to be eaten (presumably you qualify as grass-fed beef) then please join us.
