Hey All,
I haven't been around here much, but been busy with kids, home life, sorting covers and working on a new mega auction. I've missed some things on eBay, but just checked up on some of the eBay announcements and came across this:

"eBay-integrated shipping carrier requirement
In addition, we announced that starting June 1, 2020 you'll be required to use eBay-integrated shipping carriers that provide regular shipment scans in order to protect you from "Item not received" claims filed through eBay Money Back Guarantee. The launch date for the new integrated shipping carrier requirement has been rescheduled. Starting July 20, 2020, you'll be required to use eBay-integrated shipping carriers that offer tracked services when you ship to protect yourself from "Item not received" claims filed through eBay Money Back Guarantee."

I see eBay is trying to protect itself (the part of about protecting sellers is always laughable). But are sellers required to have tracking on every shipment? Are we not going to be able to mail anything at letter rates anymore? Is this for domestic AND international mail? I and I'm sure buyers don't want to see shipping rates to increase from less than $1 to $3-4 for domestic shipping. International shipping at minimum would require expensive registered mail fees (and a lot more work) on every shipment overseas. Please tell me this isn't true. I've looked on eBay's discussion groups and that's just a hot mess as always. I wasn't planning to have my big auction til September when I hope most postal services and transportation worldwide are functioning once again (may or may not happen). If tracking is required on everything or even just domestic mail, that is a major deal breaker for some who sells a lot of cheaper items. I rather take the risk of mail lost and have to give the occasional refund. If that choice is to be taken away - goodbye eBay.

Is this for an eBay store or for every type of eBay sale?

PMStamp: I'm guessing everyone. It doesn't distinguish between store or non-store sales.

I just got off the phone with an eBay representative. Sellers are NOT required to mail items with tracking or use "eBay-integrated shipping carriers" in their words. Sellers only need to use it to "protect you from "Item not received" claims filed through eBay Money Back Guarantee".

I wish eBay worded their announcement a bit differently, but now the hair on my neck can settle down and I can go forward with eBay unless I get roped into that mess called "managed payments".

For now, if you want to avoid being conscripted into the Mangled Payments fiasco, list a coin or two. They haven't yet figured out how to deal with the restrictions on accepting payments for coins & bullion through MP, so if you list coins, you are automatically exempted from MP for now.

It won't last forever, but it may forestall the requirement for now.

revenuecollector: Good to know and thanks for the tip. I think I have some old Chinese cash coins I could list. :)
