Default eBay's dumb recommendations also maybe facebook linking

See pics

eBay recommends giving 10%-100% to charity saying they'd sell better. Yup, even 100%. The item probably wouldn't sell much better if it sells better at all and then you'd lose money due to eBay fees. Plus eBay requires a charity account so the funds automatically are deducted and probably to eBay's favorite charities only like how PayPal only donates to the United Way.

eBay recommends you offer a return policy in their return policy box rather than in your main description. That makes it take longer to list items, revise, and keep track of items.

eBay recommends PayPal. They then give a phoney statistic. I don't think it's even necessary to explain why no paypal.

The other pic is in "Site Preferences". I mentioned long ago a news article said eBay and facebook may be linking and now eBay has that in your site preferences.

PS: After editing this, I noticed the site software converted the 11k and 4k PNGs that were completely clear and well compressed to 27K and 8K JPGs which are now blurry.
