Part-time eBay Sellers

I just sold something, and it turns out it was an international sale. I completely forgot I opted in to the global shipping program. Otherwise I never intended to ship anywhere but domestic. But now my buyer keeps asking for an invoice with the price plus shipping. eBay won't let me send an invoice. Also, I am confused as to whether I charge shipping just to the processing center (which is somewhere in Kentucky but can't find anything more that that), or do I charge anything more than the selling price of the item, and do they pay eBay for the international shipping? The buyer is in Italy. The item sold was an iPhone. It sold for 91.00. Somewhere the sold item shows a shipping fee of $22.09. I wish I hadn't opted for this. Then I might actually have my money by now. Please help!!!

Sellers: Update to maximum final value fee and automatic relist feature

At eBay, we monitor our rates, and periodically make adjustments to them. The following updates will take effect on November 6, 2014:

  • Fee update for sellers without an eBay Stores subscription. The maximum standard final value fee—the maximum fee sellers without an eBay Stores subscription will pay per sold item—will be raised from $250 to $750. This change only affects items that sell for more than $2,500.
    Note: The current $250 maximum final value fee for sellers with an eBay Stores subscription is not changing.
  • eBay will be making the following updates to the free automatic relist feature, currently available to some sellers:
    • Starting November 6, items relisted via the automatic relist feature available to some sellers will count towards your monthly allotment of free listings*. Once a seller’s allotment of free listings is used up—or if the relisted item does not qualify for a free listing—the standard insertion fee of 30¢ per listing will apply, as well as any optional feature fees.
    • Starting later this year, the automatic relist feature will no longer be available for 1- and 3-day duration listings.
    • The automatic relist feature currently relists an unsold item once. Starting November 6, if you are opted-in to this feature, your item will automatically be relisted up to two times.
      Note: Sellers will be credited—either via their free listings allotment or on their invoice— for insertion fees for the automatic relisted items where the free automatic relist feature was selected prior to November 6. The manual relisting policy will still apply.
    • When listing an item, be sure that the automatic relist option is either checked or unchecked, depending on your preference. Note that before choosing this option, you may want to check the Selling section of My eBay for any personalized recommendations to improve your listings.

Considering the changes above—and the fact that eBay’s new global brand campaign will inspire buyers, now and through the high-volume holiday season—it’s a good time to review the benefits that come with an eBay Stores subscription. Starting as low as $15.95 a month, subscriptions offer:

  • More free listings*—up to 2,500 a month with an Anchor-level subscription
  • Final value fees as low as 4%, capped at $250 per item
  • Access to powerful promotional tools that can help you sell more
  • Your own dedicated eBay.com home page
  • Exclusive, subscriber-only promotions

As always, thank you for selling on eBay.

* Pay no insertion fees for your allotted free listings per calendar month. Final value fees and optional fees, including advanced listing upgrades and supplemental service fees, still apply. Learn more

I have followed the recommendations for using the Dymo 4XL for printing eBay labels. I selected the Zebra 2844 format then selected the Dymo 4XL for my printer. The label prints the correct size but it only prints part of the label. It is not centered on the 4 x 6 label. It is 1/3 way down and 2/3 way over.  Any suggestions????

October sales are awful , why is this ?

I'm beginning to sell more items now that I'm a stay at home mom and need the extra money. I haven't offered returns so far but I had an unhappy buyer recently wanting a refund stating item was fake. I had proof that it was indeed described correctly and fortunately she realized the item was legitimate and closed the request. She did apologize profusely. It got me to wondering though after ebay sent me the return request giving me the 3 options of refund, partial refund or whole refund and no return what good does a no returns policy do. I've read posts that some say it keeps buyers remorse buyers at bay but I wonder if I state no returns if it will cause me more trouble than not. I'm afraid that buyers with remorse will use the item not as described option to bully me into returning items because they believe that is their only option to get me to return an item. I always state no returns but to please contact me if there is a problem with any item as I am open to discussion of a problem but the buyer above didn't contact me directly. She went straight to ebay resolutions. Just wondering what the best way to do this is. I've sold mostly children's clothing, some jewelry, some electronics and video games. Thanks in advance for any help.
