You're darn right. As far as everyone is concerned, Wenig has nothing new to offer, and is making lateral moves. Many sellers still using caution.
It's good you make sales on Ebay, but it's not really saying much for you being a salesperson, if it solely takes Ebay for you to move your product. You should be able to make the transaction happen anywhere, anytime.
Eliza, thank you for the recognition. You seem like a nice person and are new to the Ebay investment. Please tread lightly. Ebay's track record speaks for itself. They do not conduct business in a long tail format. Aside from a few dreamers here, the rest will tell you the same. Good luck.
Yes you are correct. eBay would rather make $25 today, than make $100 next week.
Sorry you were being "charged" an extra $70 - but that is not the responsibility of the seller. You were charged from what it cost to be shipped from A to B. Bringing it up to your place in your condo, is your financial responsibility. While I'm not a huge fan of Ebay, they should not be on the hook for this one.
It doesn't matter what you "expect". The amount you paid, was to have it shipped to the door at your building - nothing more. Anything else, is extra. That is a matter between you and your landlord. The seller is not a mind reader, and doesn't know where you live, in the building. Instead of assuming, you should have made arrangements with your doorman. Furthermore, the service you are speaking about is called "white glove" delivery - and is almost always an extra charge. What you received (what you paid for) is called "curbside delivery". In the future, you may consider asking the seller or merchant beforehand about arrangements.
What's the problem? She's correct. People decide about a workforce at their place of business - not the business itself. Businesses are NOT people.
Yes, would be considered a drop-ship. But, you're putting your faith in the Chinese to deliver your goods in a timely fashion. Getting them into the States quickly might bring you trouble. Good luck.
No, I just wasn't here at that time. I have a life, and not always lingering around, unlike you.
