This is exactly why this does not affect the bottom line on ebay. The main thing that drives ebays earnings is paypal. If a card is sold on here or any other forum, the majority of the transactions are through paypal. When someone deposits money into a checkoutmycards, sportsbuy, or sportlots account to purchase cards, most use paypal. Ebay is making money on all of these transactions whether they take place on ebay or not. So unless you just sell cards at a show or a LCS, you are contributing to ebays profits. So anyone who is kicked off of ebay sor any reason and continues to sell cards on line is still going to make ebay money.

Yet no one complained,not one? Maybe I'm justifying my $2.50 shipping when all is said and done the package costs $2.43 on either a 6 or 7oz package

Again, I'm giving what's being paid for,are others? Probably not

I would prefer just to roll it all into one price, but then it eliminates a lot of the cards I sell. It enables customers to buy many cheap items, and roll up shipping into one lump cost. I have shipped many items as low as 15c per item because I can roll up shipping. If I was forced to factor shipping into my BIN and offer free shipping...I wouldn't have sold 75% of the cards that guy bought.

Do you just throw the card in the mailer with a top load and penny sleeve? Some people may not like that because thecard could slip out. I pinch the top of the top load, tape it shut ( I know some people dont like this) put the card in a team bag with either 1 or 2 spacers to help keep the card from bending in any way, and then i throw a packing peanut or 2 in the mailer for added padding.

You are correct when it comes to one thing, the buyer is always right regardless of how wrong you think they are. One bad buyer unfortunately is going to tell a whole lot more people then ten happy buyers, the nature of the game. Howmany times do you see a "Add this seller to your favorite list" on here vs. BLOCK THIS SELLER. Commen sense actually, like I said.

Pretty standard policy in retail, I'm sure you understand.

Still waiting for the original link regarding the 20K members that were suspended.

and OP, your #'s are quite impressive; based on the top seller standards you have up to 1/2 a percent of total transactions before you are dinged. It is an either/or scenario, not just the # of low DSR's you rcd, there is a % variable for high volume sellers.

ONE buyer that buys 15 items can leave 15 1's. Did you know that? So who is to say its a buyer with more than one ebay id and trying to run his competition out of business.

Someone needs to make ebay aware of things like this. I buy a lot of cards when I see that the sellel will do combined shipping for no additional charge. 9 times out of 10 that means I will buy additional items from that seller. In fact I have sellers i buy from regularly and sometimes I will buy 6 or 8 cards in one order because he combine ships for no extra charge. Now if sellers start charging 2 or 3 more per card so they can give free shipping, I might buy less, therefore giving ebay less to charge fees off of.

Again 1580 feedbacks, with every single one as a seller being perfect, means every single customer has been more than happy. Call it what you want, bottom line is 100% perfection and not one bad deal to even show.

If the downfall of the business is people not tolerating being screwed over,then the business has about 1000 other issues

Bubble mailers, pack of 5 at walmart for $2.44. Giant expense there as well

Paper, buy an 80 ct package for $4.29, that 6 cents for one print job

My cost of doing business, and don't think it's anything other than business, does not get passed along to my buyers. My 4.9 DSR for S&H must mean I am doing something right
1) Well then you run out of toploaders so you buy more.
2) I'm not in the shipping business so tape being stocked up on is not an option here.
3) Paper plus print ink!!!

Add it up however you want but shipping cost will always be part of business!!!! Ebay makes enough off the 9%-12% fees they charge on the FVF so now what???

Not EVERY single one was happy or your DSR's would be all 5's. Oh did you forget your DSR ratings are NOT all 5's

Yep, you got me there. One 100 and whatever you want to equate a 4.9 to,say 98

I'll still take that track record and know I'm not screwing people over

I'm not in the shipping business either,but always have scotch tape or packing tape around the house.

I replace the ink in my printer maybe 3x a year and buy more than one when I have to so I don't run out when needed. Again, planning ahead

Unfortunately the buyer always being right no longer works. It stopped when buyers became unreasonable in their expectations.

In this specific case, I think the invoice quoted shipping at $100+ before I discounted it to $6.

But again, if you are in retail, you should understand and not be complaining. They buyer is always right. That is the first rule of retail. I think the bigger issue is the quality of product received has actually gone down tremendously, not the expectations of the buyer. Our society seems to always want to find a short cut; same on Ebay.

Well here is another situation for ya. I purchased 6 cards on monday from a guy up north (Chicago area) and they have not arrived today! It says in ebay they should be here by Saturday. I am smart enough to know there is SNOW and ICE on the ground from Texas to NY but i have the ability to HAMMER his DSR ratings on delivery time. I understand this and would never do that to him but there are BRAIN Dead individuals that dont follow the news and would ding his DSRS even though the MAIL may not have run in 4 days. Ebay will NOT remove those DSRS i can promise you that.
