Default Recent Drop In Sales

I have had a strange issue recently. Despite 100pc feedback, full stars and no cases I have had quite a sharp dropoff in sales over the last week.

The strange thing is the traffic figures are around normal, the conversion rate has just dipped. I have not changed my listings / price / title etc

I am wondering if anyone else has experienced similar, perhaps linked to BoJo's easing of the UK lockdown?

I have been fully open throughout and have had the biggest year ever, it's been crazy, absolutely no let up every day for eight weeks.

However, it has now dropped off a fair bit. I think the reality of the lurking recession is beginning to hit home.

On the flipside, those that are earning will be saving. No pubs and no trips to Benidorm this year!

Probably for the best at the moment. All I am doing is filling Paypal's coffers as I wait for them to review my docs. 4 days, 4 different chat threads and not a single response. I've just read the comments on their Facebook page and it's shameful!

Yes only 50-60% compared to April in the UK I experienced
maybe people ran out of funds and stopped buying unnecessary stuff
Really depends on your category.

Yep my sales have also slowed down, also getting an increase on people bidding on my items and not paying, never understood that being honest.
