Lee told listeners how to listen to the show while out and about as well as how to send in questions via the Contact Us button on the eBay Radio player. Becky, Alburquerque NM (teddysmom3), got a notice from eBay saying that some of her Good ‘Til Canceled (GTC) listings were not reviewed due to a “GTC policy violation”.
Edie, Santa Monica CA (dress_to_suit), asked when Collections would be made compatible with Microsoft Windows 8.1.
