I will mention that I’ve been on the new eBay International Shipping program for about a month and have made several sales through it. The only change I made was to remove International Shipping from my shipping business policy.
I signed up for the new eBay International Shipping program feb1 and have had only 1 sale. This is normal right now because the dollar is killing most all other currencies and that affects my international sales. In the last 6 months this has been the normal sales for me.
To best utilize the new Ebay international shipping you need to be “invited” by ebay and later it will be available to everyone. I found the link and asked to be included. I had a Zoom meeting with the “Sr. Manager – International Transportation”. He told me that after being signed up by them that all my international shipping would be moved from Global shipping to Ebay international shipping. It is an internal preference implemented by them if I understand it right. I am pasting 2 links below that may be helpful: #1. You can find more information about the program here.
I was using business polices and didn’t have the checkbox you indicate above for global shipping program in GS. On the “shipping preferences” page I signed up for Global Shipping and it overrode what GS had entered. It still says global shipping on ebay preferences and I am signed up for the new program
Word from the eBay dev support is, that currently there is no API support for this feature. If I got him correctly, there’s isn’t even an API to check if your account is enrolled into the new International Shipping program. Sorry.
It seems to have been a rocky rollout, the way the ebay message boards tell the story. I was supposed to be enrolled 1/30 and I contacted them yesterday and found I wasn’t… and they will get on it immediately… or it might be in March with the next “batch”. I sounds like to my reading that it is Global shipping with some new bells and whistles and once the bugs get worked out Global shipping will be phased out
