Tomorrow 10/1/2009, the new TRS policy goes into effect. I've already seen the testing of this and what it is doing. It's NOT good.
In short order, if your a power seller and sell in a high volume category with other sellers, you should assume you will have NO SALES for the month of October (if you do not meet the TSR requirements)
If you DO meet the TSR requirements, make AS MUCH money as you can in Oct, as now you've got a target on your head that makes it VERY easy to bid, win and then leave 1's in your DSR report to knock you out of the TSR reqirements for the next evluation period.
Bad, bad move on Ebay's part. I went from paying Ebay an avarage of 3k in fee's each month, to well.. lol.. maybe now $200 a month. All because one seller decided to bid on a few of my auctions and sabtoage my star rateing in the shipping time catagoy.
