eBay Seller Protection For Winter Storm Elliott
eBay has announced they will put seller protections in place for those affected by Winter Storm Elliott.
Due to severe storms across several regions of the country, you may be concerned about shipping delays for items already shipped or difficulties getting sold items to your carrier. Our primary concern is the safety of our community, please follow local guidance on travel and safety precautions.
If your business is impacted, eBay will automatically protect your seller performance, including:
- Your late shipment rate
- Your valid tracking upload rate
- “Item not received” cases due to late delivery as long as you uploaded tracking before the case was opened, and have a physical scan from the carrier
- Defects resulting from transactions you cancelled
- We will also remove any associated negative and neutral feedback and these cases will not impact your service metrics rating.
We’re continuing to monitor the weather across the country, and will make necessary adjustments to delivery date estimates so that your buyers have accurate expectations.
