So I’m back with this year’s 2nd Questions & Answers blog post.
This week has been all about eBay and the upcoming changes that will be taking effect on
February 20th. Judging from the amount of questions I’ve received, it’s going to be a stressful few
weeks for all of us! But really that’s the norm with eBay, their implementation of changes leaves a
lot to be desired, so it’s understandable that everyone is worried.
Unfortunately there’s nothing much we can do other than wait and see how it all pans out.
But back to our Q&A and today we’ll be covering the following questions:
- Was I scammed? $165 PS4 consoles from Alibaba!
- What’s the best way to LINK eBay sales with Amazon & Magento?
- Where I can download a good Blu-ray listing template?
- Should I increase my price once I’ve reached the top of eBay’s search results?
Let’s get started!
So I recently started to try out Alibaba and am still in the process of my first order. The person is located in Nigeria but the items are being posted to me from the UK. So far I have paid $165 but have been told that 5 units were posted to me, rather than just 1… they are now asking for $150 for each unit and $200 for customs fees.
The company is a gold supplier and has been for 8 years and they have sent me some tracking information but I’m very worried about proceeding any further. What do you suggest?
I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you have officially been scammed.
I mean, $165 for a PS4, coming from Nigeria – that is a SCAM! I’m sorry to be blunt but did you really believe that such a deal existed? You will never get pricing even close to that, and I could have told you this was a scam just from the combination of Nigeria and branded consumer electronics. [Read more…]
