I am concerned about the slowing of my eBay store. I have 100% positive feedback, but activity has slowed tremendously. I have read elsewheres that Google is not promoting eBay items anymore...unless you go through Google. - Not possitive that this is accurate, but it appears to be true. I have done searches for my items on google and they do not show up.
So, I tried the cheaper version of Google Adwords - Adwords Express. The guy convinced me to set up $100 a day budget. The special is after you spend your 1st $25, you get a $100 coupon to use towards the rest of your bill. So, I thought I would try it. I had already heard of them going over your daily budgets if you haven't reached your monthly budget...so I watched it closely for 1hr.
Well.....It went over my daily budget in 1 hour and it kept billing me for more clicks. I shut it down. I knew I couldn't afford $100 a day, only making $2500-$4000 a month on eBay. The good news is you can shut it off manually. Bad news...if someone doesn't understand that it can spend their suggested monthly budget in about one day...they could be devistated... The high $100 budget is suggested - because the higher your budget is set...the higher you are on the list to be promoted on a page...I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't know what they are getting into and tries this. I just want to let you know.
Also I searched for my items when I had adwords express and found them...after it was gone - says can't find any matching item, or pulled up someone elses - mine was nowhere to be found.
I hope this is helpful. If we are not getting this service anymore and are expecting it...shouldn't our fees be lowered now.
Buyer was charged 1.19 for first class package shipping by ebay, but when I go to purchase the label my cost is 2.32, w/a net of 1.93,
Can't find an answer on the website & the telephone wait time is 75 minutes +, This has happened to me Twice before over a few months, First time I ate the
the additional charge, 2nd time I got a refund from ebay without any explanation as to the problems, Of course when I tell customers the shipping is too low, they say not their problem, Any ideas out there
