I am constantly reading in the Selling board that to be TRS, you only have to print the shipping label within 1 business day. (And also that even non-TRS handling time constitutes when you upload tracking) That when you get it to the post office really doesn't matter.

 

This ticks me off a bit ....

 

The tracking/handling portion of the TRS states

 

Tracking requirements:

You've uploaded valid shipment tracking to My eBay within your promised handling time for at least 90% of transactions with US buyers in the last 3 months.
  • 1 business day handling time:  If a buyer pays on Tuesday, you need to upload tracking by 11:59:59 pm Pacific Time on Wednesday.

  • Same business day handling time:  If you offer same business day handling, you also have 1 business day to upload valid tracking information. For example, if a buyer pays on Tuesday at 10:00 am Pacific Time, you need to upload tracking by 11:59:59 pm Pacific Time on Wednesday. The tracking number must have at least one carrier scan recorded within your promised handling time.

  • Handling time is measured in business days. Weekends and holidays aren't counted. For example, if you specify 1-day handling time and a buyer pays on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, you need to upload tracking by 11:59:59 pm Pacific Time on Monday.

 

 

The definition of handling time is how long it takes to ship your item. NOT how long it takes to print your label!!!

 

Your handling time = Out the Door time.

Handling Time

The handling time is the number of business days the seller will take to ship the item after receiving your cleared payment

 

So .... just printing the label and hanging on to it until whenever you get around to it makes a mockery of those of us to do our dammdest to get the package into the carrier's hands within 1 business day.

 

GRRRR .... end rant

 

Happy Christmas Eve all :smileyhappy:

I knew I shouldn't have started to browse around after posting my decoration pics :smileytongue:

Definition of Handling Time - Mini Rant

I just had an item returned for a refund and didn't realize that the buyer never opened an INAD case against me. Is this unusual?

I thought "cases" were refferred to as "requests" now, but I guess not really.

Return requested without opening a case

On Sunday afternoon, I was browsing through ebay listings, looking for a bathrobe for my grandson. Under 'Boys fleece robe' the first item listed was this one (link below) from Target. I was so surprised!

 

There's no way you can tell it's a commercial ad until you click on it. 

 

Is this 'normal' now? I'm used to seeing sponsored ads at the foot of the page (bad enough) but not heading up regular listings.

 This one really bothered me. If I wanted to buy from Target, I'd have gone to Target. 

 

When I looked again today, the Target ad was no longer in #1 position, but had slipped to half-way down the page. Small compensation - IMHO it shouldn't be there at all!

Do you know all the words to your favorite Christmas song?

 

My favorite for the night is..... Let it Be Christmas by Alan Jackson (I think) and no I don't  know all the words.

I'm not lying =)  The "answers" aren't all that relevant, but publicity is publicity.

I know that I had one lady who insisted that her blue shoes were black and hit them, but they must have been hit again since they dropped from 4.9, to 4.7 and now I just checked and they're 4.6.  It's frustrating as I try to describe items, take lots of pics, add everything possible in the title, yet eBay rates a 4.0 as being good but can suspend my selling rights for being at a 4.  Is there anything I can do?  Thanks.
