Tom, Pittsburgh PA (blackandgoldgifts), called in with a question about an eCheck and late shipping while his store was on vacation. Griff and Lee read the eBay’s Fall marketing news, adapted from a post by Katie Hammel in eBay for Business (http://www.ebayforbusinessblog.com).
Griff and Lee reminded sellers to use their newly released additional free listings for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas and other holiday-related items. Lee told us about eBay’s new Big Things Start Small microsite at http://www.ebay.com/big; go there to sign up for updates and get your first free entry in the Big Things Start Small Sweepstakes, which will run November 1-23. (The prizes are fantastic!) Ken, Birmingham AL (jellybellydist), asked what to do about 2 eChecks that bounced.
Lee asked an eBay trivia question to be answered only by someone from the chat board; Billy, Torrance CA (hotbid22), and Patty, Long Beach CA (whoohoodepot), called in simultaneously with the correct answer and each won a $25 gift certificate for shipping supplies from Bubblefast (http://www.bubblefast.com). Ed, Hernando FL (lil_bit_of_texas), called in about an item that arrived damaged after being shipped through eBay’s Global Shipping Program (GSP).
