The Auction Guild Notes for Thursday 11 Nov 1999
We strongly recommend that you opt for EMAIL MESSAGE,
NOT digest for your subscription option. Messages get sent immediately,
digests get sent and posted to the site 24+ hours later. If you need
help changing your subscription option, just drop us an email. We have
posted a survey on the site, and would appreciate your input.
eBay US- has information about iShip, an eBay financed affiliate.
They provide an online tool for figuring shipping cost on smaller
packages, and freight on large packages.
Unfortunately if you are using the USPS, it is faster to figure shipping
using post office paper charts, though by using this site, you can add
this tool to your auction listings.

We are still waiting for the requested and agreed upon information from
eBay, that will allow us to identify the originator of the spider, that
eBay alleges was operating on our ISP subnet.
