Ebay Isn't very good when it comes to
customer service for sellers, or anyone for that matter.
In fact, they are absolutely awful. There will be
some more pages visible here soon. For now, here is the
sorry story of closing down my "Interesting Electronics" ebay
shop. This is the page that was placed on the front page
of the shop for a couple of weeks prior to closure. It was
updated as the process went along and is shown here for archive

30th September 2019, Ebay Loses Orders From The System and
Blames Everyone Else
You would think that not losing
orders in an online marketplace system is fairly basic and
essential. No, actually. According to ebay seller
support, you should expect this to happen.

Remove Vital Functionality From Seller Hub By Way Of An
Your new web page design may arguably
be more mobile friendly according to several outdated measures
in the Ladybird book of, "How To, Web Design For Kiddies," but
that's not very helpful if it no longer actually works.
2020, Proof That The Ebay Messaging System Lost a Vital
Message and Their Pathetic Response
I've long suspected that the ebay
messaging system has been losing messages sent to me from
customers and vice-versa, particularly when they are using an
ebay site other than ebay.co.uk. Here's just one example,
and a recording of the telephone call to ebay seller "support,"
which did little to make me happy. Quite the reverse, in
7th April 2020, Ebay's Much Vaunted Multi-Buy Promotions
Fail, Make Me Guilty of Retail Fraud, and their Pathetic
On the 7th April a customer alerted me to the fact that when he
had bought four items, correctly using shopping cart and
everything, that he had been charged the full price for one item
rather than the multiple purchase reduction price. That's
retail fraud! Here is the ebay response so far. I've
since added many more instances of systematic Multi-Buy
Promotion failures, and some analysis.
Ebay Systems Fail To Apply A Simple Overseas Postage
Rate Correctly, I get Blamed For it, and Effectively
Called A Liar.
Oh dear. It's the multi-buy promotions failure excuses
all over again. "You changed the listing after the
customer placed the order." No, I did not! "Yes
sir, you did." No, I didn't!
How Ebay Tells Your Customers That You Are On Holiday and
Not Processing Orders, When You are at Home, and Very Much
Processing All Orders Within 24
For six days at the end of August to the beginning of September,
Ebay was busy telling potential customers that I was holiday on
many of my listings and not processing orders at this
time. "Don't Worry," they said on the 'phone, "It won't
affect your sales." Really?
This is yet another really awful software 'frig' to add
some data to Royal Mail 2D barcode labels when printed via
the ridiculously time-consuming ebay system. I can
only assume that some people actually use it, meanwhile the
rest of us who print address labels by a proper method have
to manually remove ebay computer garbage from the
text. Something is seriously wrong at
Ebay Politburo Central. Have we sacked everyone who used
to understand the system properly and employed some cheap
company to kludge every software change demanded by the
marketing department for a whopping bonus? Surely not!
Ebay Miscellaneous Site Failures, Including some Serious
A category of incompetence and failure including some serious
issues and everyday website malfunctions resulting in endless
wasted time for me, my customers, and even the ebay corporation
itself. Do I really have to click three times and view
three failed pages every time to search for an order?

21-MAR-2022 The Incredibly Piss-Poor Webinterpret Listing
Translation System, And How Ebay Imposed This On My Account
Despite My Explicitly Opting-Out Beforehand.
On 9th November
2021, the boy-wonders at eBay Politburo Central decided that
no-one was paying to use the useless "Webinterpret" automatic
translation system created by another company that ebay had
bought-out some time earlier. Oh Dear: What a
surprise! To avoid any embarrassment of the executives
involved in spending all that money, ebay tried to make this a
free service and allowed people to opt-out. Opt-out, I
most certainly did. Below you can read about what
happened next, and how without immediate and continuous manual
intervention it would have ruined my selling account within
two days. There is also a very interesting post-script
to this issue, dug-out from August 2019.
Updated eBay Photographs Fail To Display The Correct
Pictures To Customers
I noticed that some of my photographs updated long-ago were
showing the old pictures. Murray Lambell, (V.P. of eBay
UK) Eve Williams, (Head of eBay UK marketing) and Bradford
"Made-Up Name" Shellhammer, (Head of eBay New York and
singularly failing to impress a Manchester audience with his
prancing antics in September 2021) were at pains to impress upon
eBay sellers the importance of uploading new and many good
quality photographs of their items for sale. That's not
much use if you display the old ones is it, so-called eBay for
Business? No. So; It's onto the eBay telephone line
of lies we go!
eBay Failure Allows Customers From Disallowed Postage
Locations To Place Orders
I've nothing against Puerto Rico other than the fact that, like
many other countries in the world, their postal service is
rubbish. That's why I explicitly disallow purchases from,
for example, Puerto Rico. Imagine my surprise when I
receive an order from that country in my "Orders Awaiting
Dispatch," list. Follow the link above to hear what the
ebay Telephone Line Of Lies has to say about that.
eBay Internal Search of my Own Listings Can't Find Exact
Word Match Items, and Neither Can The Customers on the Main
On Tuesday 12th July I was searching for "Variable Capacitor"
within my own listings in eBay Seller Hub, Selling Manager Pro,
or whatever it is supposed to be. That's strange.
Less than half of the items that I know have "Variable
Capacitor" in the title are showing. Oddly enough, it's
exactly the same for the customers using the most obvious search
term "Variable Capacitor," on the main site. Oh
Dear! Is it any surprise that I'm selling less than half
of the variable capacitors that I should be?
