eBay to remove defects weekly for flood affected deliveries

RainDue to the recent and continued risk of flooding in the North of England and Scotland, there may well be ongoing disruption to delivery services in these areas. There has also been flooding in areas of Northern Ireland and with more rain due on Wednesday evening the situation could worsen.

eBay have said that transactions affected by these events won’t impact your seller performance. eBay will automatically remove any defects weekly in line with their Defect Removal Policies in the UK and Ireland. In such cases, you’re protected even if you haven’t posted items using a tracked service.

Have you seen much impact from shipments destined for areas recently affected by the flooding? Have you sent orders to flooded areas or, as is sadly more likely, buying on the Internet is the least of the people’s priorities.
