Karl, Bloomington MN (zkarlo), had a question about eBay-funded refunds. USPS rate increases take effect this weekend. Griff and Lee read “The Fresh Start Effect & Tips for Igniting 2017,” adapted from a blog post by Shana Champion in eBay for Business (http://www.ebayforbusinessblog.com). Tom, Pittsburgh PA (blackandgoldgifts), is looking for a dropshipping mentor for blind eBay seller Daniel, Front Royal VA (karate25daniel).
Griff gave an overview of today’s show (the last live broadcast of 2016) and introduced the eBay Radio News with birthday girl Lee Mirabal. Topics include the upcoming rate increases by UPS, FedEx and USPS; Hatchimal arbitrage Down Under; and the house from the movie A Christmas Story. Griff shared eBay’s tips for cost-effective shipping, while Lee reiterated the relevant dates of these carrier rate increases.
