eBay changes affecting Canadian sellers

June 26, 2017 under News

Dear customers, a lot of you bought from me previously on eBay for whatever reason. Well, with their recent changes, a Canadian top seller like me is completely discouraged to sell to Canadian customers! Ironic.

This all boils down to the fact that in order to maintain my top seller status, I need to provide tracking 95% of the time. eBay launched their spring seller update on June 20th, probably just in time to celebrate #Canada150 birthday, our country turning 150 years old.

To ship a light pair of stockings without tracking as letter mail would cost me $1.80 Canadian. To ship it with tracking would mean a little bit over $12 Canadian. Big difference! Who’d pay that?

I recently bought a t-shirt from another Canadian seller, before these changes kicked  in, and she sent it to me via letter mail, charging me only $3.50 shipping. With the current requirements she would have to charge me probably about $13 to ship and that would be a real deal breaker.

If I don’t abide by those regulations, I’ll lose my top seller status and I no longer will rank as high as I do in eBay search. This may affect my business.

As a result, my target eBay customer is a US-based one because I can use a logistics company to take those packages across the border and pay domestic USPS rates that provide tracking and are so much lower than Canadian shipping rates.

In conclusion, please, no matter where you are based, I encourage you to buy from this site rather than from eBay. Without eBay fees I can offer better sales on products. All pricing on this site is in Canadian dollars and you are still fully protected by Paypal’s policies.

Unexpected Problem on eBay

September 6, 2016 under News

I am still shaken up and confused. Today I got an e-mail from eBay telling me that my selling has been restricted due to trade mark violation. I am so shocked, everything I sell is real and legally obtained. I hold 100% positive feedback.

I called them and provided a whole bunch of financial documents to prove that I do in fact get this product from a reputable source. Custom clearance, paypal records, invoices, you name it, I have it.

Turns out that what got their attention are words in the titles such as “mock” and “Imitation”. I explained to the woman on the phone that these words refer to the pattern, like let’s say “mock stocking tights” or “hold up imitation” design. It has nothing to do with the authenticity of the brand.

Both parties agreed that I did nothing wrong and that it is simply a misunderstanding. However, they told me that this is an educational experience for me and I am still punished for a week. I’m kind of struggling to wrap my mind around it, as less sales for me means less money in eBay’s pocket too.

I guess I am going to spend a week “educating myself” as eBay put it, without being able to list any new items until Sept 13th.

In case you want to see my eBay, here it is. You can still buy stuff, it’s just that I can’t list anything new for a week, that’s all. http://www.ebay.ca/usr/fantasystockings

I opened a package and gasped with excitement when I saw that there is no seam on the stomach and on the bum.

20 den and 40 den have small side seams, but 70 den has no seams at all.
