Get your facts straight !There was no Paypal chargeback fee one year ago. It has nothing to do with Obama. Charge-backs are often caused by fraudulent buyers from Ebay. As far as this stock. Ebay/Paypal are now trading at about a 15% premium to the split up. Ebay sales have dropped dramatically in the last few days, which means Paypal revenue has also dropped dramatically. Keep an eye on what Ebay sellers are saying about sales. If the sales slump continues, both Ebay and Paypal are a Sell, as obviously there should be no premium to the stock if there is a sales slump.
It is very simple. I wanted my order shipped to an alternate address, it could be another residence of mine, a friend or a relative, it doesn't mater. The seller sent it to an incorrect address, and Ebay will not let me file a claim, however, apparently everyone else is entitled to file claims against me even when my item has been delivered to the correct address. It is OBVIOUS FAVORITISM!!!!!
In the last week our cancellations have been more than our completed orders. Also, returns are way above normal in the last month. This can't continue or it's lights out !
If they impose this fee too much, you can expect an Investigation and it's going to cost the bottom line.
We purchased an item from an Ebay seller with twice as much feedback as us. we wanted the item shipped to our Ebay buyer's address. The Ebay seller sent it to a wrong address. Our Ebay buyer filed a claim against us, but when we attempted to file a claim against the Ebay seller., there was no option to do it, only a "Contact Seller" option. So Our Ebay buyer can ding us, but we can't ding the Ebay seller. Looks like Ebay is playing Favorites !!!
the reason, or sellers return policy states in their Ebay listing. Example: We recently had a buyer file a claim as "Not as Described". He claimed the item he received did not match the listing because the packaging was slightly different. The Brand, model number and the item were the same, but due to manufacturer's variations there were differences in the packaging graphics. Ebay ruled in his favor and requires the seller (us) to pay for a return shipping label which Ebay will charge to our seller account. This new rule will make us, and many other sellers, re-think our selling strategy on Ebay. Also note: The buyer never contacted us. The buyer paid extra for one day shipping, which Ebay also requires refunding. We repeatedly emailed the buyer, providing links to the manufacturer's website, showing the item he received was indeed what we listed, but the buyer ignored us. When a buyer ignores the seller and goes directly to Ebay claims, more often than not, the buyer is a scammer. In this case, Ebay clearly rewarded the scammer.
This Board's owner (Sully) busted nothing!........His only response is either his "eBay store is doing great" or a question of whether someone is "actually selling on ebay"...not much of a repertoire. Apparently you are one of his alter egos who posts more smoke screen snow job Nonsense
Well, Ebay will continue to steer some people away from selling on their site, and other sellers will make adjustments. The two examples I gave are for retail items, "new in box". Very likely Ebay is trying to discourage us from selling these types of items, because their "Partners" sell the same items.
It seems there is an epidemic of buyers who file claims for petty reasons. Here are two examples. Example 1: Buyer files a claim "Item not received" after 5 days. This buyer had special shipping instructions which caused a delay a 2 day delay in order processing, he was notified, but could not bother to check the tracking status on the UPS site or ask us, when it would not show properly on the Ebay site. So he filed a claim, His item will be arriving tomorrow, but now he's blocked. Example 2: Buyer files a claim, two weeks after he received his order, claiming "Not as Described" He says the product packaging appears different than in the picture on Ebay. The item is the same, same brand name just different graphics on the packaging This was a computer cable. He is now on the block list......all the funds for both orders have been placed on hold by Paypal and will stay on hold for two weeks...... and of course.....our sales have fallen off a cliff again!

1. You are short, sold calls or long puts
That's All folks!
"What's being said in a social media group: POSTER #1: Very good questions. Ebay's algorithm "hiding" of small sellers items seems to involve "rolling blackouts" in which one's items are only visible to a specific region or area of the country for brief periods of time, resulting in a "geographical clustering" of whatever sales you may get.
POSTER #2: I see long periods of time go between sales, then several will roll in at the same time. Then it stops again. Like they turn me on and off. I had long suspected exactly the things you are talking about, but never had any proof.
POSTER #3: My god am i glad i found this group! I can't tell you how many times over the past 3 years i've spent hours & hours on the phone with ebay reps explaining this what I called "cycle" of sales... 2 days nothing then clusters of sales... I'm now wishing I had paid attention to where the items sold to... I think from this point on I start charting every sale."
Many US based Ebay sellers are reporting a recent dramatic drop in sales. Many believe Ebay is imposing rolling blackouts to their Ebay stores. Store traffic is down, sales are erratic. Many sellers are reporting, the typical remedy of adding more listings is NOT working. Some say their sales slowdowns may be attributed to massive listings by import sellers who typically sell KNOCK OFF products. This massive influx of import listings, many duplicates under multiple Ebay ID, causes sellers of genuine products listings to be obscured.
The customer has not paid...even sent us an e-mail letting us know they were not going to pay, stating they clicked "buy-it-now" by mistake. it's been three weeks now...we have no FVF credit and we can't even ask for it....C'MON!!!!!
