    @DailyInquire @chrisjewson_ @AOC The Seuss estate saying they will no longer publish them is not an issue. However, when Amazon stopped selling what they had, and return eBay stops private sales of Seuss books (while still allowing Mein Kampf sales), that’s where a lot of people have an issue.

    @dancastree64 @AskeBay You are able to pay with Paypal, sellers are just not able to collect with Paypal anymore. Apparently there are issues with sellers that are in the process of or are not on Managed Payments. I have not seen an official statement from eBay on the matter but maybe issue fixed soon?

  • LesFried Leslie Fried (@LesFried) reported

    @MLDDad_ @eBay @USPS My husband is having the same issue. 🙄

  • ZanderBennett twitch.tv/ZanderBennett (@ZanderBennett) reported

    Won a eBay listing, they cancelled my order, reuploaded the same item, and then when I messaged them about it they took it down and didn’t respond back. Any advice? I can’t leave negative feedback since they cancelled the order.

  • CptCatFan Tina Smith (@CptCatFan) reported

    @PS5restocks_etc I finally got one using Vivaldi. My initial time was 40 minutes, but it ticked down in chunks. Don't give up guys. I was.on the verge of buying one from Ebay; I don't have to now.

  • unixbigot Christopher Biggs (@unixbigot) reported

    Saddened that my grant poroposal for a Carbon Capture and Sequestration pilot project was rejected. Listing cheap GPUs on eBay pickup only, then telling the crypto-bro buyers, “it’s in the basement, c’mon down, yeah just through that door *SLAM*” totally would have worked.

  • nakajimahik0uki ᕼᗩYᗩTO 🐢✨🍈 | オカエリ、ヘタリア!! (@nakajimahik0uki) reported

    so basically i've broken even, and sometime next week i'm getting 102 back from the ebay refund for the difference in shipping. 🧐

  • Venis_Gaming Venis_GamingTCG (@Venis_Gaming) reported

    Who hacks eBay accounts? Well someone took mine and customer service is terrible. I’ll buy as a guest but selling will exclusively be on the store moving forward.

  • rhyspyle1997 Rhys Pyle (ThomasTrackmasterRailway) (@rhyspyle1997) reported

    I think we can all agree that high prices are terrible. Especially on eBay and Amazon.

  • ConsolesBot BotConsoles is the 🐐 (@ConsolesBot) reported

    @TONTlC @PS5Drop Why do people bot? Why have so many sold on StockX? Why are there so many listings on eBay? Man everyone must be the problem

  • QuinnCat13 Cat Bastard Quinn (please read pinned) (@QuinnCat13) reported

    I just got an update from USPS saying my eBay shipment was forwarded. They didn’t say where or why. All my previous eBay orders to my most recent address have come with no problem and I haven’t changed addresses recently. I’m confused and concerned.

  • JamesHodden James Hodden (@JamesHodden) reported

    I have ordered a couple of issues of White Dwarf from Ebay that were published in 1994. I'll no doubt be crying about the prices of the stuff compared to what they're worth now when they arrive.

  • seaweedanxiety Lakes 🦈✨ (@seaweedanxiety) reported

    like my impulse control problems manifest as placing ill-advised ebay bids under pressure, not killing people

  • offy offy (@offy) reported

    @WatchTheBreaks @eBay That’s ignoring the issues with the tracking of the new service. I thought that it would be nice to offer the option to have buyers select either standard envelope or bubble mailer. I won’t make that mistake again. They paid .91¢, but it said first class was selected.

  • JackalsParadise Celine! #BLM #LGBTQ+ (@JackalsParadise) reported

    @MintTheHusky2 ah, well if its the 6th gen id keep ahold of them for now in case anything goes wrong. Older gen nanos had that issue and new ones might have the same but maybe apple fixed it. if you want to sell tho, Ebay, Mercari, and Facebook Marketplace are where id go

  • jennweintraub Jenn Weintraub (@jennweintraub) reported

    @MLDDad_ @eBay @USPS As a seller, I feel this pain - thankfully all of my buyers have been understanding, but it is a huge issue.

  • Wakedid1 Dr. biased bot (@Wakedid1) reported

    @amazingatheist The issue is when eBay and Amazon decide that it’s too offensive to allow a 3rd party to sell their own copies. Please don’t say “make a new eBay”

  • ConorCanney Conor Canney (@ConorCanney) reported

    A woman bought my PA speaker system off me a few days ago on ebay and told me she would come and pick it up yesterday, she was driving down from Yorkshire .. A man turned up on her behalf to collect it (I'm assuming her boyfriend or friend) I immediately understood why:

  • Cannabisaurious Cannabisaurious⚰️💨 (@Cannabisaurious) reported

    @Emma_Louise_ @AskeBay Also not for people who need constant cash flow for their businesses this is a slap in the face to small sellers go **** yourself ebay Y’all have caused problems with my account enough

  • offy offy (@offy) reported

    @WatchTheBreaks @eBay Have you tried it on the website? I know there are frustratingly some things that just don’t work in the app There’s definitely an issue in the communication between eBay & USPS servers when it comes to calculating postage & something internal in the flags set for $ restrictions

  • gazr76 Gaz Dyer (@gazr76) reported

    @Steve_Dangle No problem. Yeah I bought it from a UK based bookstore called 'Backwells'. Their Oxford store had your book in stock which I purchased through eBay. You have lots of UK based hockey fans Mr Dangle.

  • peh934 Andrew Reid (@peh934) reported

    @TaupeAvenger I thought there were parts issues; including BART buying thyristors on eBay

  • tydikmen Tayfun (@tydikmen) reported

    @TheeMostWashed @eBay These ***** never shipped the item once it was authenticated and the buyer filed a claim. Which shouldn't be an issue since it was authenticated, but they tried to inspect the item to send it back to me (they magically found it). Had to call and waste 30 minutes to fix it

  • dancastree64 robert smith (@dancastree64) reported

    @AskeBay so can paypal still be used for buying via ebay ? i'm no longer able to checkout using paypal let alone login into paypal plus @AskPayPal has plenty of comments with other people and the same problem

  • steviebe steven bell (@steviebe) reported

    Just ordered new Apple Watch series 6 with the new solo loop band. Had my series 3 for years! Crack in screen, slow, can’t update it as memory full. Seen good reviews on YouTube on the solo loops. Looks like even damaged mine will sell on eBay.

  • MrMikeys_ MrMikey (@MrMikeys_) reported

    I just bid $18,500 on an old truck on eBay. I may have a problem. lol reserve still not meet btw

  • Selby_Burke_Art Spellboi {COMMISSIONS OPEN} (@Selby_Burke_Art) reported

    Whoops I was unreasonable, but the ebay seller marked the price down... so...

  • Shadowcatuk 🐿️ 🐰 Ritsu 😸 🐶 (@Shadowcatuk) reported

    @IntoaHare @AgentLittleP @chrisdingleb If you're worried about customs, buy from a site like CDJapan, AmiAmi, HLJ, Amazon JP, PlazaJapan or Hobbysearch I might say avoiding auction sites like Ebay would be best until things settle down

  • Roddie_1 Roddie MacNeil (@Roddie_1) reported

    @ToysRUs you really need to fix your shipping. You're charging 31 dollars for shipping a WWE figure. The item itself is cheaper than the shipping. There is something wrong there. When you had your eBay store I never paid this much for shipping.
