    I hate ordering from eBay when the seller is in the States. Either the shipping is ridiculously expensive to get in a reasonable amount of time or is cheap but taking the slow boat from China. As a result I only buy things on eBay I can't get anywhere else, Amazon for the win

  • petejbrown51 Juventino (@petejbrown51) reported

    @_mike_rossi_ @CardPurchaser @eBay eBay wants as many sales as possible. I don’t think the view count would ever be altered. I think enough people can be promoting, pushing non-promoted items lower down the list.

  • CardPurchaser Card Purchaser (@CardPurchaser) reported

    @_mike_rossi_ @eBay I think it's more likely just to be an error in counting views

  • _mike_rossi_ Mike Rossi (@_mike_rossi_) reported

    Conspiracy theory: @eBay purposefully messed with the views algorithm so people see views down on their items and buy into the new Promoted Listings Beta. @CardPurchaser thoughts?

  • ChuckMcA Chuck McAllister (@ChuckMcA) reported

    @javavvitch @cherthedev That can be problematic. One of my earlier mortgages they scrutinized every deposit over $500. I had recently gotten married, cashed in some RSUs, had a performance bonus and was selling stuff on eBay to save for a down payment. Had to write a statement justifying every deposit

  • nicehitcards nicehitcards (@nicehitcards) reported

    @jonorato5 @CardPurchaser It seems like it’s a reporting problem, not a problem with traffic on eBay. It shouldn’t effect sales of auctions or BIN. I’m seeing the same low view numbers, but my sales volume hasn’t dipped.

  • jonorato5 Joe Onorato (@jonorato5) reported

    Anyone else having weird eBay stats the last week? All of my listing views are down. Some of my listings have 0 views after days. I even tried promoting one of the higher end cards as trial. Hasn’t increased the views at all. Makes starting 0.99 auctions hesitant @CardPurchaser

  • OfficialSlickYT Matthew 👑 (@OfficialSlickYT) reported

    @eBay when are y'all gonna fix these bots?

  • Ellie10751666 Ellie (@Ellie10751666) reported

    @acquesta_brian @Xbox i recommend just getting one off ebay, just make sure to read the description so you don’t end up with a broken disc port or something like me

  • MorganBaden Morgan Baden (@MorganBaden) reported

    "What's your next move?" is a real prompt eBay keeps sending me about an old issue of Seventeen magazine I'm watching, and gee, I don't know eBay, it's a global pandemic & I'm just trying to get through my days by reliving my youth, can you leave me in peace?!? Why the pressure?

  • T3LECASTER kenz (@T3LECASTER) reported

    so mad bc the cassette community makes it seem like obtaining a good walkman is so easy like... mfs on eBay are selling these shits for way too much and 90% of them are not working & i dont have time to be a handyman

  • hncynic hncynic bot (@hncynic) reported

    Title: Essay: The Digital Death of Collecting 💬: I had a lot of trouble with reading eBay when I first browsed it. I would not read the reviews anymore, especially I don't really care much about the book. I was surprised at how well it does for me...I don't like to read…

  • Arrowheadbroken 🗣️ Brilliant Uncirculated Toned Wheat Cents Rock! (@Arrowheadbroken) reported

    @cmw311 @eBay sent me a message that my Top seller rating is hanging in the balance because my volume and sales went down. I'll show them and start everything possible at a dollar auction. Lol, I might do it... $1 No Reserve.

  • Probgoblin Johnny Normality (Still Spooky Mode) (@Probgoblin) reported

    @JCFart You might do a bit better on Ebay. Other than the clamshell case that's what comes with one retail. That model always comes with a dock, cables, and Joycon controller handle. Not a terrible price by any means though.

  • ajin_jenaka ajin_jenaka (@ajin_jenaka) reported

    @AskeBay how to change ebay business to personal ? Had a problem to complete registration

  • kelvis12 Kelly Brunner (@kelvis12) reported from Willow Springs, Illinois

    @Lesleyknibb @julie_dutto So sorry, that is terrible... Ebay? Or a local coin collector?

  • KrocCamen Kroc Camen (@KrocCamen) reported

    May and June editions seem to be conspicuously absent from eBay and elsewhere -- I think I've bumped into some strange corner of obsessive collecting but I would love to see these issues in colour

  • lmeyler Cookies! (@lmeyler) reported

    @sergeykarayev Called ebay, online adverts or bin it. A simple problem to solve.

  • MidcenturyMild1 MidcenturyMildred (@MidcenturyMild1) reported

    @AskeBay I wish that had been an option I feel very let down by eBay and it makes me question keeping my account open. I also question the knowledge some of your representatives have. I’m seriously thinking of closing my account

  • WatchTheBreaks The Breaks (@WatchTheBreaks) reported

    @LeanderCards @BuyerOfCards Exactly… so $350 and not moving for offers while they are selling for $200 (or even $250 after the goal) on eBay is a PROBLEM for buyers on the platform, and a reason they won’t use it until sellers decide to start being reasonable.

  • StanfordNews1 Stanford Tweets (@StanfordNews1) reported

    Unfortunately, we have to mention terrible personal experiences with companies from time to time. we don't recommend @FedEx at all and companies use their services such as @eBay. They give a lot of inconvenience to their customers. @FedExHelp

  • LeanderCards Leander Cards (@LeanderCards) reported

    @WatchTheBreaks @BuyerOfCards I still legitimately don't understand the gripe. Prices are essentially subsidized on the platform at the moment. Inventory is low and prices are reasonably competitive with BIN on eBay for most of the cards I've looked at. I get your example, but that's not a platform problem

  • TGingerlad James Hinchliffe (@TGingerlad) reported

    @satonthematt Don't let it get you down, bad reviews won't really impact your sales unless you get loads haha I've done about 60,000+ sales on ebay & etsy and get about 1 negative every 4-6 weeks sometimes just be "not what I expected", "delayed post" , etc You got this man !

  • coldkennels Tony (@coldkennels) reported

    @rnsted Yeah, I bought both of my Kievs from eBay, and both needed some work - light leaks on both, frame spacing on one, and rangefinder calibration on the other. Everything but shutter issues is easy to rectify yourself, though.

  • LeanderCards Leander Cards (@LeanderCards) reported

    @BuyerOfCards @WatchTheBreaks I assume you mean prices are higher than eBay. That's more a byproduct of things that are under/correctly priced selling. Not sure I follow why that's a problem with the platform.

  • HarriHursti Harri "scofield" Hursti (@HarriHursti) reported from Manhattan, New York

    @lumiere2016 @CannConActual With modern computers there are no meaningful trade offs - even laptop can process typically 2-3 images per second per core. Image format, resolution, depth etc has impact of course, but second hand 32-core Xeon server is $350 on eBay. There is no excuse to use lossy compression.

  • lockatron Andy (Wallie) Wall (@lockatron) reported

    @Michael_Duffey_ @AskeBay Nothing odd about it all! Probably explains why sellers sales are down! This is a consistent problem with eBay and they just love to play all ignorant and act like the problem is new and odd. Shocking!

  • Kimbarb72957870 Kim Barber (@Kimbarb72957870) reported

    This new thing of shopping on line hasn't let me down yet. Amazon and ebay have always delivered. Pretty impressed with shopping online. Still like to go out to the stores and look though. This time of the year is no fun if your not going out looking at all the seasonal merchand

  • kriiluna Kriiluna (@kriiluna) reported

    @lolvbs I already ordered xl sweaters and medium sweatpants so I hope it's not too big :/ should I order more a couple sizes down and just sell what doesn't fit on ebay?

  • Andrew15555 Andrew (@Andrew15555) reported

    @DoneRody @DigitalEmelas @NISAmerica No problem. I was glad I waited it out from eBay prices as it was hovering around 55$ or so there and got both games for 60$ shipped from NIS Europe
