eBay Combined-Invoice Glitch Cost Seller $300 in Lost Sales - EcommerceBytes

Quick Read

Since last week, I have had several Buyers email me and say when they place items in their cart and request a total, the get an error message number of "80206".
Airbrake PS: Follow up to my previous letter: I finally got a hold of someone at eBay customer service and they informed me that the error message, when requesting a total for combined shipping, has been occurring for Buyers for at least two weeks and there are numerous trouble tickets on this - so, here's another code problem, not a glitch.
When I explain this to them, they state that eBay is all messed up (or something to that effect) and I never hear from them again.
CS acknowledged that IT has been working on it for 2 weeks before she clammed up and would not address the issue any further.
Dear Ina, It now appears that eBay is no longer allowing Buyers to ask for a combined invoice.

eBay Combined-Invoice Glitch Cost Seller $300 in Lost Sales - EcommerceBytes

Dear Ina, It now appears that eBay is no longer allowing Buyers to ask for a combined invoice. Since last week, I have had several Buyers email me and say when they place items in their cart and request a total, the get an error message number of "80206". They then ask me to send them an invoice which, as almost no Buyers understand, Sellers cannot see what is in a Buyers cart. When I explain this to them, they state that eBay is all messed up (or something to that effect) and I never hear from them again. So far, I have lost, in the last week, $300.00 + in sales. Tried to request a call back from eBay CS to discuss the problem but that is no longer available to us "small fry" Sellers. The only way we can contact CS is through email. I have sent 3 emails since last week and have had no response. Looks to me like eBay is on the ropes and the count is at 9. Airbrake PS: Follow up to my previous letter: I finally got a hold of someone at eBay customer service and they informed me that the error message, when requesting a total for combined shipping, has been occurring for Buyers for at least two weeks and there are numerous trouble tickets on this - so, here's another code problem, not a glitch. CS acknowledged that IT has been working on it for 2 weeks before she clammed up and would not address the issue any further. Does anyone have any idea how much business this has cost Sellers? I'll wager a guess it's in the tens of thousands of $$$$. The Buyers just go someplace else - who are they going to complain to? eBay CS?
