Add shipping "based on buyers location" function to mobile app

  • Planned
For the mobile app, I would like to see the function, under selling, to allow the shipping rate based on the buyers location. This seems to online be available on the main site, but not in the mobile app. This would save from having to change this later. At least make it an option to choose from.

Hi Andymcallister1,

We do have this ability in our Windows Phone app and are looking into incorporating it into our other apps.

Thanks,

Ginger

The based on buyers location function is a must. No one knows the cost of shipping before you know where itmis going, especially with quickly changing shipping costs.

Again this app needs to have shipping option based on weight not cost. You do not know the cost until you know where it is going. You have this on turbo lister and the regular sell your item page. I have been selling on eBay for 14 years and you cannot calculate the correct cost without knowing where an item is going. That is why eBay developed the weight and calculation option.

This is a complete oversight in your app. Like all others this is a must for me to use it.

A calculated shipping option would make the Android app I am using infinitely more useful. As ebay now charges a final value fee on shipping costs it is even more important to have an accurate shipping value for all potential customers. I know that ebay encourages offering "free" shipping; but last time I checked no carrier ships for free and independent sellers with a low volume such as myself cannot "write off" this cost.
Thanks for helping us small frys out with this. I assume the mobile app is geared towards us.

Yes please add calculated shipping. Just give it the same stuff as the iPhone app. Been using iPhone app to list many items for sale. Got an iPad and was excited bc I figured it would be easier to type and so on. Well so far it's a :(

Calculated shipping will be enabled on the eBay for iPad app in our November release, which is planned to be available in November of 2012.

Thank you for your patience.
