eBay sellers often have a number of items that they are trying to sell and only have about a week to ship those items to buyers.
As you might imagine, this is much easier said than done. It’s hard to know when you’ve reached the end of your eBay seller’s time frame. In our case we have a little over three weeks. But we have a lot of fun working on the game so that we can work on other projects. I’m really excited about the game and the team that’s going to be working on it. And yes, I know that not every eBay seller has been able to ship their merchandise.
ebay seller has been shipping their goods to us for a few weeks now so we are going to be doing that.
One of the things that makes ebay seller especially difficult is that they have a huge backlog of orders that they have to ship, which makes them extremely slow. We started out working on the game to help them out in this situation, and we were able to get all of our orders shipped out over the last three weeks.
I’d also like to add that we have no plans to stop working on the game. We’re not even going to try and make it a full fledged retail game because we’ve got the money to do that (but you can buy a bunch of stuff in the game through the in-game store).
As it turns out, there are a number of ebay sellers who aren’t as efficient as we are. They are taking orders from a certain amount of people (for a while) and then shipping them out for a fee, so they have a backlog of orders. We have the solution to this problem. It’s called a “Delay Permit” and it allows eBay sellers to delay shipments and receive payment for items.
eBay sellers have a lot of money to spare in their inventory, so they can ship out their items in as little as three days instead of a couple. But the one thing they can’t do is ship them out for a fee. The seller can’t ship out anything, so they have to charge a fee for shipping out. We have a solution. It’s called a Buy Later Permit.
Its the same idea as a Delay Permit, but this time it takes the form of a Buy Later Permit. This allows eBay sellers to pay their shipping fees sooner. When a buyer ships an item, the seller can then use a Buy Later Permit to fund the shipping on that item. And as long as the Buy Later Permit is in effect, the seller can’t ship that item out again unless they get paid for it.
I see a Buy Later Permit almost as a digital coupon that can only be used once, and only on one item. If I use it on something I want to buy, I don’t have to pay the shipping fee on it. As such, if I want to buy a new motorcycle, for example, I won’t have to pay shipping fees on my old one.
