    @zeno001 @stonewalluk I can def cut @citibank, @IBM, @eBay, @absolutvodka, @amnesty out with no problem, & bring others along. @ProcterGamble will be a pain, but no way will I support companies funding efforts that have already led to violence, ****, and marginalization of women+girls. NO. MORE.

    Browser shopping experience not great so re-downloaded the app. Forced to make a new account to watch items as log in not working. Asks to sign in again to message a seller. Error with log in details. But I just. Made. Them. This is why I rarely use eBay, glitches galore! 😫

    @Shattered_Earth I had this problem when I sold on ebay too, ebay promoted listings with free shipping because buyers like to see free shipping (even though it really isn't free), the only solution is to offer a discount for certain items or to have them contact you directly for a discount.

    Come Shop @ Ladies High Fashions on eBay! (@antman5921) reported

    Hello, Ladies High Fashions on ebay started out 4 years ago and has swiiftly grown. My policy is to ship fast and clear up any issues that may arise. I list everyday. One of the reasons I ship so many orders is because I allow buyers to make offers on my ebay items.

    @AskeBay I bought a item on eBay a few months ago. Item broke within a week item was removed of eBay and seller never refunded me. What can I do as I have this problem constantly trying to get help for this item.

    well, tech and gadgets are very personal and subjective , for example: I bought HP Windows 10 tablet off ebay to prepare for purchase of Surface Go but then concluded that Surface Go too slow for my needs but that tablet tablet is fine

    @BuenoWaino @FunkoPopHunters It was a way to beat the bots. They only go so many times before they would error out. This was brilliant.. sadly within 17 minutes earlier there were over 400 sets being resold already on ebay.

    @nolan_mcbride It’s fascinating what they did given what they had- and the Producer’s Cut is way more fun given how bonkers it goes. My brother and I originally tracked down a rip off of eBay back in the day that was horrible quality but such a fun way to discover it!

    I needed the money i got from selling stuff on ebay for a very important bill today, and now i'm probably going to be in really bad trouble because i wont be able to. All i needed was to change my phone number, or cancel the two step verification so i could login.

    @Paulsballs2323 @bbqueenangela @AngelaRummans2 @VanityPlanet I hate drop shippers.i used to be top rated on eBay, I’d grind outside finding things and go to eBay. These drop shippers with their $10-20 product markup ordering from other sites some bullshit lazy hussler shit. Can’t ever be down with people who take advantage of others.

    US' pulling out of UPU worries investors and consumers. It pushed down the market 300+ points in the morning. It will reduce the revenue of eCommerce and delivery businesses, i.e., $UPS, DHL, and FedEx $FDX, as well as $EBAY and $AMZN. It'll increase the price of online shopping

    @AskeBay It told me the code "could not be applied." The item definitely qualified, I actually received a message from dysonoutlet the following day saying it was due to an ebay glitch, but they're refusing to extend the offer beyond the expiration date.

    It has been a scam on $EBAY by China sellers that Ebay allowed to go on for years.China sellers show you a perfect little stock photo of something, send the wrong item or even a broken item and then say sure you can get 100% refund..send it back first. $23

    @jeffmc Yeah, maybe just don't like, cook any food in it after reflowing your fav leaded solder paste. Or pick up a new T962A off @ebay for a couple hundred bucks. Plan to strip it down and replace the masking tape with kapton, solder hand twisted wires, and remove loads of hot glue.
