Wanted to buy a t-shirt. Went through normal login process. and that message came up. though it never had before.
"At this time, we are unable to process your request. Please return to eBay and try another option."
Well when you return to merchant. No other "options" exist. So what do you recommend?

If you are on a certain sellers items, they may have Alaska blocked. Some sellers won't sell out of the 48 states. Sellers can block Alaska/Hawaii, Canada, or the US Protectorates. This is all on Site Preferences under Exclude shipping locations. I notice in the Answer Center where a lot of sellers won't ship to these places.
