  • jdsboston ☁️ JDS ☁️ (@jdsboston) reported from Seattle, Washington

    @mccrory @jkowall Good that ebay shut it down

  • mackaracka Mackaracka (@mackaracka) reported

    @raven_feathers Shoelaces work, too. You can make binding from the scraps. I found elastic at ebay and overstock. Overstock a bit slow. Ebay within a week if you order from a seller within a few states away.

  • MackennaSiobhan Siobhán MacKenna (@MackennaSiobhan) reported

    @DeviantLord69 They sent all the antibacterial hand sanitizer overseas. I’ve seen some of this sold on eBay and Amazon for $50 a bottle. The supermarkets should have cracked down on this thievery and racketeering but happily stood by and did nothing because the supermarkets were earning a lot

  • thomasgleaton 𝗧𝗛𝗢𝗠𝗔𝗦 𝗝. 𝗚𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗧𝗢𝗡 🧃 (@thomasgleaton) reported

    @BenOnSports @TroyTrojansFB @UniWatch @HelmetAddict @GridironHelmets @417helmets @addicted2helmet @GreenGridiron I’d check eBay. It‘ll be used but it looks just as good. Then again I found one at a thrift store for $5. Gonna have to clean it, sand it down, and maybe get some bondo, but it’s worth the savings.

    .@ebay fix this!!! .@EzekielElliott .@FakeUrban .@CoachUrbanMeyer .@OhioStateFB .@ESPNCFB .@DustinFox37 .@CFBONFOX #ItsAFundraiser #Buckeyes

  • Mr_Rager775 Lord Pretty Flacko Cody (@Mr_Rager775) reported

    @Fluesza @eBay No problem.

  • TimothyMetcalf Timothy Metcalf (@TimothyMetcalf) reported

    @WhiteHouse Why isn't someone doing something about the toilet paper issue! It continues to be hoarded and sold on ebay and with the economic problems people have already and the orders to stay at home they shouldn't need to drive to ten diff stores just to find something to wipe their ass!

  • DaveAll08488162 Dave London (@DaveAll08488162) reported

    The moment I settle my 3 transactions I will be permanently shutting down #eBay. I can buy anything they have through other sites, and after 20+ years @eBay has become horrible.

  • celliottjones Cathy Elliott Jones (@celliottjones) reported

    @kstatik Oh they were slow on the uptake in your neck of the woods! I have not seen a paper *product* since this all started. I finally ordered toilet paper and paper towels on eBay last week — got gouged, but at least it is now one less thing about which I need to worry.

  • lotzoftomaz amber (@lotzoftomaz) reported

    @wynonnasrose thank you!!💛 i think i will try here first and then maybe ebay. but i'll have to wait until all this is over bc i'll need to get sturdy envelopes etc and i don't want them getting lost in the post, just with how slow things are just now🙈

  • DanH616 Dan Henningsen (@DanH616) reported

    @ScottHecht33 that's ebay...took me days to get them to shut down an auction from a guy selling parts off a crashed F-14 where both crew perished.

  • gayfrogcult Kat (@gayfrogcult) reported

    Not to be Horny but last night i looked on ebay for a copy of the Peter Steele issue of Playgirl and theres a copy available for like 350 bucks and my isolated ass was like. Yeah, one day. I would buy this.

  • yays25 yvette Stewart (@yays25) reported

    @eBay you really should close down your site! You are screwing sellers and offering no real customer service. I have been fighting a mishandled situation and I keep getting the short stick! #ebaysucks

  • spacejock Simon Haynes (@spacejock) reported

    Needless to say, I never got my hands on the next issue. I could probably have found it on ebay, but I didn't know the date of the issue I DID have (1974, at a guess.) Turns out it was June 22nd, 1974.

  • bflippin Ƀɍɇʈʈ (@bflippin) reported

    @SirSQL @pmpjr @BeginTry Ebay sellers have them for like $5. I’ve activated probably 25 Windows 10 installs with no issues. Never pay more than $10 for Windows or Office licenses.

  • BigJim45690073 Big Jim (@BigJim45690073) reported

    @ButcherNate1 @scinta_m My wife has ordered over 40 pairs online. Never an issue. Find them cheap on ebay.

  • mccreary_rob Rob McCreary (@mccreary_rob) reported

    @chris_spielman Wow! @eBay fix this ASAP!

  • yays25 yvette Stewart (@yays25) reported

    @ebay you should really close down your site. You screw your sellers and offer no real customer service. Do everyone a favor and close your site, so more people aren’t left holding your mishandled messes!!

  • wb41gatewood Jim Gatewood (@wb41gatewood) reported

    @ebay stop doing eBay things and fix this.

  • yays25 yvette Stewart (@yays25) reported

    @ebay you should close down your sight all together! Now I know why everyone says sucks!

  • willcollier Will Collier (@willcollier) reported

    @mdrache There was a brief period in the 90’s, between the collapse of the arcade business and before eBay, when you could find cabinets for next to nothing. I spent a grand total of $40 on the first three I owned, and that included two for $5. The most expensive fix was less than $20.

  • BlogChurchWork Church Worker (@BlogChurchWork) reported

    Dear @amazon: You know what I'm going to say. All of your rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, disinfectant spray/wipes, including your in-house brand, are up for resale on @eBay, sometimes at a 1000% mark-up. Given the reports we've seen on hoarding, pls step up & fix this.

  • BuckeyePat84 Can we go outside yet? (@BuckeyePat84) reported

    @chris_spielman Hopefully @ebay fixes this but the problem itself is frustrating. They do this to people with no system or explanation eBay use to be great 2 decades ago now it’s ridiculous. This is BS

  • W71Keith KeithW71 (@W71Keith) reported

    @chris_spielman @eBay @eBay should be called out for this. Someone is trying to bring some light into the world during these times and you shut them down.

  • STBOOIAP Mundane Explanations (@STBOOIAP) reported

    It's all about me dad really,but when I push me mum down the stairs it's all about me and Ebay #AntiquesRoadshow

  • DevonAnnaSmith Smith (@DevonAnnaSmith) reported

    @dreadconquest I haven't finished it yet so I'm just waiting for it to get terrible! My dad once gave me a Jordan Peters*n book so I do not endorse his book choices at all. He also has an original painting by adi da that I keep telling him to sell on ebay

  • jaysongeiser Jayson Geiser (@jaysongeiser) reported

    I barely realized eBay still existed. Doing things like shutting down the account of a famously charitable person who is auctioning off memorabilia to aid the #1 cause in the world right now would probably be a reason that this site has been long forgotten.

  • TampaBigRed MeanMrsMode 🍊 (@TampaBigRed) reported

    I haven't bought / sold on @ebay in years because they allow price gouging and counterfeit items. Fraud is rampant. But hey, it's cool to go ahead and shut down fundraising for a beloved public figure. Even wolverines love him. Ebay really stepped in it this time.

  • dyoung216 Dan Y (@dyoung216) reported

    @chris_spielman @eBay This sucks. @garyvee make sure you don’t auction cards on eBay for a good cause. They will shut you down

  • MattMcD81 Matt McDonald (@MattMcD81) reported

    @chris_spielman @mortreport @eBay @eBay fix this immediately!

  • RobotsPJs Vincent of the PJs (@RobotsPJs) reported

    I ordered 4 g1 transformers on eBay because mine are missing and I want to build Superion and I think I have a problem.

  • MarsupialWoe Marsupial Woe (@MarsupialWoe) reported

    @SKSKUNK52 If they'da shut down the eBay I'd be doing great...

  • Capricri Capri (@Capricri) reported

    @IFoxpax @Gi_Arc The issue is, it takes weeks for this "Anticheat" to ban people (which is really just reliant on reports, so it's not an anticheat) and during that time they buy a 5$ 960 account fresh, play it for weeks, pay off the 5$ by posting on Ebay for 30$ per carry, rinse repeat. :/

  • 9RouteFootball Nine Route (@9RouteFootball) reported

    @Carlahousing101 @eBay @eBayNewsroom @AskeBay That was an error in the listing price, and the listed was taken down immediately after the mistake was realized. We appreciate it can delete, please since it was corrected; thanks.

  • chiefsstl ChiefsSTL Mike (@chiefsstl) reported

    People on eBay selling Lysol for $200 buy it now. Get real. Hey @eBay shut them down for price gouging.

  • itiselizabeth Elizabeth! 🐢🦉🍫 (@itiselizabeth) reported

    January was really hard not to buy new clothes because checking eBay and certain other sites was habit February was easier as I'd broken these habits but the shops in Manchester were so tempting March I kind of forgot and then it became a lot less of an option (feels frivolous)

  • PatSix1 Rob Sexton (@PatSix1) reported

    Unbelievable. EBay shuts down a man truly doing good in his community. @chris_spielman


    @chris_spielman @eBay This is ridiculous....had issues with them years ago , luckily quit selling just in time. Their customer service is non existent

  • prinschad1991 Chad (@prinschad1991) reported

    @chris_spielman @eBay Hey @eBay4CharityUS fix this

  • michaelmalice Michael Malice (@michaelmalice) reported

    it moves for $68 on ebay but that might be an outlier there's a copy there now for $175, you can get them down to $150 I wouldn't pay that much for a standard copy of a widely available book

  • dmhenwood David Henwood (@dmhenwood) reported

    @chris_spielman Yo @eBay - you need to fix this ASAP.

  • BJP20199 Chowkidar ki Beti 🇮🇳 💯 % Followback (@BJP20199) reported

    @AskeBay unfortunately ebay itself not providing support to own customer and their stupid philippines staff asking UK seller for the buyer delay issue. Can ebay please train their staff further so we can get solution easily.

  • Longjonbronze Longjonbronze (@Longjonbronze) reported

    @TalkingSuperman There are sellers on eBay that have all 3 issues. Has yet to be collected.

  • Ore_Bolarin Øre (@Ore_Bolarin) reported

    Slow replies on Depop/Ebay piss me off differently. Like *****, Im tryna help YOU.

  • TrumpsTrooper Woman (@TrumpsTrooper) reported

    @ButcherNate1 I've used Austad's and Ebay and never had any problem. Know the brand and size then it's E Z P Z.

  • GeistChristy GeistChristy (@GeistChristy) reported

    @circlestarSC @AskeBay I have to get inventory from somewhere. Welp, those places are NOW CLOSED. Many eBay sellers are facing the same problem. Please don’t patronize me. You know nothing about my business.

  • FiveMetreStop FiveMetreStop (@FiveMetreStop) reported

    @curlyboy1975 @navalhistorian Indeed ... I was walking down an anonymous street in Fulham (eBay pick up) on the way back to the Tube and not far from Stamford Bridge ... And found the Blue Plaque on his old house

  • elcompagordito ElCompaGordito (@elcompagordito) reported

    @eBay please respond, I'm having issues with a post on my ebay account that was removed please contact me as soon as possible.

  • ExpatCrypto3 Ian LeViness (ECBlockdemic) ‏ (@ExpatCrypto3) reported

    @BradRegnier1 @Fari_Ferrari @pulte I got one on Ebay- wasn't a terrible price but looks like buying them from someone you know who sews them is better- which I also did

  • Newsagentprovoc John O'Sullivan (@Newsagentprovoc) reported

    The Queen could sell her ****** on Ebay and the money from that alone, would solve this problem.

  • MonteCristo_99 Castro (@MonteCristo_99) reported

    @AskPayPal After 12 years of continued business with PayPal, PayPal decided to reward a scammer that eBay already shut down.Their customer support has been abysmal and rely on nonsensical MACROS of terms and conditions instead of actually being a customer service representative

  • qwertxzy qxy (@qwertxzy) reported

    @birussou well we'll definetely need two anyways because my (gigabit) part of the network is on the first floor, but that wouldn't reach the down to the basement, where I now have a powerline adapter and a cheapo 10€ AP I got off ebay

  • TheOnlyStrayCat Stray Cat (@TheOnlyStrayCat) reported

    So, I and/or the seller from an @eBay auction are getting ****** out of $600 because the item I bid on was stolen or lost, and eBay's "item was lost request" system is broken and isn't available if you request it as a return on accident. Never using eBay again.

  • AngleseyPete Pete Baars (@AngleseyPete) reported

    @unsuckEBAY They've also shut down the ability to report listings for anything other than price gouging. So dodgy misleading listings, scammers can have their field day. Good work @ebay

  • ReddogOHIO REDDOG (@ReddogOHIO) reported

    My wife told me we are getting low on toilet paper, so I went over to my mom and dads to check on them and went down to the basement and found a closet that was full of Sears &Roebuck catalogs, took a few and will put the others on EBay

  • crazyhorse1321 Anthony Pulcastro (@crazyhorse1321) reported

    @WHWeeklyTom @Tristangray True. So set up an ebay auction for just him for $1 to use they're shipping and have him paypal you the rest. BOOM, Problem solved

  • Spinneyhead Ian Pattinson (@Spinneyhead) reported

    Last day of the tax year, and my eBay shop has enjoyed its second biggest sale ever. :-) Not enough to put it in the black for the year as a whole, but a promising sign of the slow build to profitability continuing.
