So, here's my issue. I just qualified for TRS, which is cool. But I have items that I just ship in an envelope with a stamp. I ship them on time and they get there in 2-3 days. It cost's me less than $0.99. Which is what I charge for shipping, but now that I have TRS I don't want to lose it. But in order to do keep it I need to have a tracking number uploaded within 1day handling. In order to have tracking I have to charge way more. And thus the items i'm selling for 1.79 really aren't worth it because its over $2.00 for shipping! This is horrible for me. And I don't know what I am supposed to do with that! If people didn't get there items on time they would rate you lower than 5 stars and thus you would lose your TRS status. Why isn't it regulated like that?! Ebay is really starting to get on my nerves with crap like this.
Furthermore, I called and asked them what I could do and there response was nothing. If I charge that much for shipping ill never sell anything. If I leave it as is, then I lose TRS and make less. It's lose, lose and total BS.
