I recommended Countessa get in touch with Smee Enterprises - specifically for access to the double-ended Enterprise model pineapple with extra strength foliage.

Seems even that might have been lacking - but hopefully it would have gained their attention.

So much so that I have been having what seems like a pitched battle to work out what was going on, who was doing it, and how to stop it.

There are still more unanswered questions than there are answers.

Frustrating and inconvenient?

It has been (continues to be) a most frustrating experience... but once again the forum was down.

There are some odd things going on at the moment, and I can only apologise as we appear to have been hacked or redirected.

I can currently load the forum as of a few minutes ago, but ONLY if I access it using anonymoX.

Apologies to everyone.

eBay's emails are an avalanche. They tell me they've chosen things for me which they know I'll want; they tell me I'll find my sort of shopping inspiration in their email; they tell me what's "trending" (ha - am I bovvered? I AIN'T BOVVERED!); they tell me this is it, the one I've been waiting for (I wasn't); they advise me to be the sharpest tool in the shed; and so on and so on and so on.

I don't want to disable all messages from eBay as I may use the occasional discount offer, but if I could just disable the "WE think we want you to know about these things" emails, it would be a considerable saving on my inbox's ability to cope. The whole experience is simply - annoying. Result: I am less and less inclined to buy from eBay as I don't have nice fuzzy warm feelings about eBay.

It is curious how all the little quirks you find along the way seem to always lean towards the maximising of fee charges.

Adding postage into the final value fee calculation was a bit rich - but I can understand why they did that.  I'm just waiting for them to start charging FVF on postage for pickup items....


EBay has done one thing out of paranoia that is actually costing them sales.  My seller friend had a recent situation where they were going out of their way to help a Buyer (who didn't have a lot of experience or confidence with eBay) sort out multiple purchases for a combined invoice, to save the buyer on shipping costs.  From what I can gather about the exchange, I suspect eBay may have been filtering messages.

That is a great way to put Buyers off - and to have Sellers bear the brunt of the Buyer's displeasure.  Such a rich reward for the Seller who was spending so much time helping their customer.

Which reminds me ... there is talk of eBay forcing Immediate Payment for all items under $1,000 - so say goodbye to a lot of sales where a customer might want multiple purchases under a single lot of postage - UNLESS - that seller can set up "rules" for the shopping cart that will allow for automatic calculation.  It's a bit hard to do that when you sell items varying from the size of a business card to a small overnight bag and where half of the packages can go at letter rates - when eBay thinks everything is a parcel.

So ... what was the question....?
So Ebay iS up to their old tricks ;)
Oh, right .... It seems so.

My money is on the eBay shopping cart.  I've seen it before.

There are a couple of qualifications, but mostly PayPal just uses whatever eBay provides.
