    Item location irritation

    Item location irritation 14th Apr 19 at 7:27 PM
    Had this problem for a while and hope somebody here has the remedy.
    My address is registered but everytime I sell something, the default item location shows my old address I left 11 years ago !
    Gets irritating changing it everytime I sell junk; I've been through all my personal information and there is nothing connected with my old address.
    Can't find a way of contacting E-Bay over this subject, just go round and round in circles.
    Anybody have a solution ?
    Cheers

    If you scroll down to the very bottom of a listing , in edit, it says " item location" and gives you the option to change

    Or

    Thanks but that's the problem, I need to alter from my old address on every selling page I'm listing and it gets rather tedious, even if something doesn't sell and I re-list it reverts back to my old location

    Try using templates, if they have the correct location it should be correct on every new listing you do using that template.
    The questions that get the best answers are the questions that give most detail....

    Are you sure you cannot edit multiple items at the same time?

    For example in my ebay I can select 200 listings and edit them all in bulk.

    I sometimes change the dispatch days so that they are all 3 days or sometimes I change them all to 2, I can also edit the location of all my listings in bulk.

    I have a similar issue.

    Whenever I go to print a postage label off it says their is a problem with my address.

    For some reason it shows the house name and road on one line and I have to change it.

    I click on save changes and it is ok for that one time but it always goes back to being wrong again.

    Also on my account I cannot buy postage with Royal Mail although I can with the other options.

    My OH does not have this problem.
