Did anyone notice that ebay, in all their wit and wisdom, are apparently requiring Free Shipping for a whole lot of items on the UK site, i.e. books, cds, dvds, small electronics and clothing.
The last time they tried such a test was Paypal or Electronic funds only on the Australian site. The Australian government put a stop to that but ebay instituted it stateside and we are all living with that.
If they end up with Free Shipping in the US with the September roll-out, I will end up having to close down. I can't make even the slightest profit on an auction style listing if I have to ship clothing for free.
