I have an additional question in this area. In the Shipping and Handling time option on Auctiva, I don't see a way to choose 2-9 days, which is standard Media Mail time. Do I take care of this at Ebay as well? I have my first scheduled listings for 10:00pm and 10:05 pm EST tonight, Sunday. When do I make the adjustments I need on Ebay? Thanks to anyone who can help this beginner out!
There are two things to note here... One is that eBay will automatically show your potential buyers the 2-9 day average shipping time if you select Media Mail as the type of shipment you will be using.
Second, there another piece of information, probably more to what you are looking for, that tells the potential buyer how many days you will take before you ship something to them. In other words, if I buy something from you on Sunday, do you ship on Monday or do you wait till Friday and then ship the item out. That is probably the Handling time that you are referring to...and it should be considered seperate from the times quoted by the Post Office. You determine your own Handling time... If you ship items out right away then your Handling time should be a low number otherwise specify your actual handling time before something you sell gets into the hands of the folks at USPS.
