This works great for some auctions, not so great for others. If I had separate Profiles for Flat Rate and Calculated shipping, it would work to update the settings in Grid View, but my main auction ID defaults to Flat Rate, First Class, and then I change the shipping to calculated as needed. So if I use the Grid View to alter them all -- to set the "Dispatch Time" (yeah, that's a pretty odd term) -- it will "erase" all my calculated shipping settings, and that would be a disaster (would have to re-weigh and re-measure a lot of stuff). So I'm stuck with doing this "manually" for relists.
Thanks, eBay, we all needed yet another setting to slow down the listing process. And do they really think someone will base their decision to bid on the seller's "dispatch" policy? The only time this could possibly make a difference, it seems to me, is where there are numerous sellers all offering the exact same, new products, and the bidder is shopping for the quickest turnaround.
And if I set mine for 5 days (I never, ever wait that long), will my Feedback reflect how tickled the buyer is when I ship the same day I get their Paypal payment? Hah!
