"Heavy Snowfall" Feedback message to remain for next few weeks

No primary category set

If you haven’t left feedback for a seller this week you may have missed the “” message eBay have placed at the top of the feedback page. It reads “Heavy snowfall across the UK means that some deliveries are currently experiencing significant delays. When it comes to leaving feedback, please be patient.”

I have to admit I missed it myself last time I left feedback, despite it being in bold it’s at the top of the page and my eye went straight to the feedback box below. The best advice is as ever communicate with your buyers, let them know when their item is despatched, and if you ship with tracking make sure you give the consignment number to your customer either in the despatch email or by entering the tracking number on eBay.

The message should remain on the feedback page for the next couple of weeks until things get back to normal.
