Global Shipping Program damaged my item - The eBay Community
Do not ask the buyer to file a Not As Described! The new system eBay has implemented will result in one strike against you, not GSP!!!


From what I read in all the forums, GSP is a disaster for sellers and the buyers. They repackage almost every item to save on re-shipping costs by putting it in a smaller box, removing packing material, etc. to make it lighter for something you already paid shipping for.

Global Shipping Damaged item Shipping Problem - The eBay Community
Usually  I have had no problem with getting reimbursed in the past for this, until now....  Buyer filed through Paypal as "not as described" instead of filing through Ebay, and because of this it has been a nightmare!  It has been 2 weeks, and now Paypal is saying another month to look into this??? My $200 in funds is being held, and I've called them twice with no luck.

eBay Global Shipping Program Keeps Pitney Bowes on Board - EcommerceBytes
In other words, a buyer can buy hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise (maybe thousands), and for whatever reason, they can just file a dispute with the card carrier, which bypasses both Ebay and Paypal) and then the item is free! Unfortunately, the seller is out the value of the item, the amount buyer paid, and the shipping paid.

Mastercard, Visa, eBay drop out of Facebook's Libra payments network • WSJ
AnnaMaria Andriotis and Peter Rudegeair:
<p>The biggest financial companies that Facebook recruited to launch a world-wide cryptocurrency-based payments network have backed out of the project, threatening to derail an ambitious initiative to remake global finance before it ever gets off the ground.

Visa, Mastercard, Stripe and eBay said Friday they were withdrawing from the coalition of companies that had originally signed on to help launch the libra cryptocurrency, following PayPal, which dropped out of the Libra Association last week.

The moves came after lawmakers, central bankers and regulators expressed deep concerns about the libra project.

The loss of four of the largest payments companies in the world leaves Facebook without much of the muscle it assembled for libra, a digital currency it hoped would make it a player in e-commerce and global money transfers. The project now mostly hinges on smaller payments companies, telecommunications providers, venture-capital firms, e-commerce merchants and nonprofits.

“I would caution against reading the fate of Libra into this update,” David Marcus, the Facebook executive overseeing the project, wrote Friday on Twitter. “Of course, it’s not great news in the short term, but in a way it’s liberating…"</p>

The reason they pulled out is because today (Monday) is when they'd have to formally sign up and hand over $10m to be a member of Libra, and they've all been leant on heavily by regulators and politicians who don't like the idea.

I still wouldn't write Libra (or libra) off. I suspect Facebook really wants this to happen. If it can get it close to getting off the ground, or figure a way through the regulatory thicket, then they'll be back on board in a flash.
