I guess I'm gonna wait an hour then check back. Great they want to further penalize sellers with a couple low dsrs when crap like this is not uncommon.

Things got even more aggravating at the PO when, as I was congratulating myself on not having to wait in the line of 40 people, the drop-off chute jammed.

It turns out many people cannot check-out with PayPal right now either!

And I almost missed this chestnut:

"Many sellers have contacted us recently about a sudden drop in numbers in their stores traffic reports. We’ve investigated the issue and confirmed that the problem is in the tracking and reporting system only and that actual traffic and sales for eBay Stores are normal."

Uh huh.

I don't know, my traffic is down but my sales are up! :? So who knows.

Mail chutes jam all the time for me, but of course, I normally have to ship like thirty 12x10x8 boxes... after about fifteen I am sol.

Talk to your postal workers - at the two offices I make drops, they are more than happy to have me put them in a particular spot, saving the wear and tear on their drop box, saving me the frustration of the process, and also the time in line. It is also awesome to see people watch you come in with a cart stacked six feet high, only to walk past the line, throw them on the counter and leave.

Yeah, I just took 'em up to one of the women I knew who was taking refuge behind a "Please go to next available window" sign. Thank God no internationals today!
