Poshmark scored a deal with the USPS to charge $5.95 for expedited shipping on any item, any size!! It is cheaper to buy/ sell many things on Poshmark for the postage savings alone. Why can't Ebay get a similar deal for MOST items that are listed??
I have been selling for about three years now. Everything has gone smoothly, very few troubles along the way, and I still have a 100% rating. But not from eBay! I had a couple of cancellations for different reasons. One I dropped the item while packing it. The second was a Silpada bracelet that someone wanted to back out of the deal. Then two items got damaged while sitting in storage waiting to be sold. At any rate, my rating slipped from above standard to below standard overnight. I am so upset about this I am finding it hard to sleep and get to my so-caled "real" job. I literally don't know what to do, afraid people I know might find out like family or friends. I hope this isn't visible to the public. It is irrational but I have to get out from under this nightmare and I don't know how. Even if I walk totally away from ebay I feel it will follow me forever, a total failure.
What am I supposed to do to fix this? I have had a bunch of new sales since then and everything has gone smoothly. I called ebay and the woman was able to raise my selling limit back up, but I still can't even get my money for weeks. I am just so ashamed, being treated like a suspected con artist and a bad credit risk and this has never happened to me before in my life. I feel like all the cancellations were totally justified, were the right thing to do under the circumstances, and in fact were a sign that I am a good seller and will only deliver quality merchandise and good prompt service. Why is eBay doing this to me?
