A little update...
I listed 10 items 2 days ago, and edited all 10 (in batch) to correct the shipping discount toggle. I thought I had double-checked each one to make sure the edit "stuck".
This morning I notice I sold 3 of the new listings, and the customer paid via paypal - and NO shipping discount was applied. I check each of those 3 listings, and each of them has the discount toggle turned OFF. Is this a glitch, or early onset dementia?
Immediately I check the other 7. Those are all turned ON. Amazing coincidence that the 3 that sold happened to be OFF.
So the question I have this morning is whether there is yet another ebay glitch in play here where the option actually changes.
As a test, I double checked the 8 listings from last night, and also uploaded, edited, and checked another 48 store listings I did this morning.
If I sell any of these items, and the discount toggle changes, I'll let you know!
Another problem I had, possibly related, is another buyer had a problem with insurance. Now, I don't offer insurance for most items, and my pref is set to "no". But when I generated a buy invoice this morning for several items, the insurance was set to ON, REQUIRED, and was $12.51 (for a $15 invoice).
I check each item, insurance is set to "not offered". My insurance pref for combined orders was set to "buyers choice", and should have been $1.70. Very odd.
As my final glitch of the day...(this one has been reported on the boards and ebay is "working on it")
Every time someone buys an item (store or fixed price) that has multiple quantities, instead of getting the usual "you sold an item" email, I get a "item ended" email, even though the item is still listed...
