eBay lawsuit must watch
During research, I stumbled over this eBay lawsuit which is insane and shows how reckless the global auction platform is acting against a Massachusetts couple (working for the press). The videos are from June 2021 resp. June 2020 but are highly interesting. Please watch and share!
Being an eBay member myself for 20+ years, I was always a critic of eBay. I, too, had heated email exchanges with them. The latest mandatory Payoneer payment system by eBay is very controversial. The online giant calls it “eBay managed payments”. As a member, you can’t choose anymore how to pay – you need to use the US-based Payoneer service. Especially for Europeans, this is a massive disadvantage as payout takes much longer than before and is converting from USD into EUR at a terrible exchange rate.
eBay’s Global Shipping Program (GSP) is also much under critics as it makes you pay customs duties where no customs duties apply, or you even pay double customs sometimes. Plus, GSP asks for insanely high shipping costs. I always wondered why no European entity was suing eBay and their practice for payment and global shipping.
Why the above case never got more global media attention is a riddle for me. I guess eBay spends a lot of money on “lobbying.” Finding “bad news” about the online platform is tough, but they exist. On the contrary, we can find plenty of articles that eBay is suing its partners/members. eBay lawsuit must watch
