FBA? Can’t they just ship using Amazon logistics or lasership?

He is referring to the TBA tracking numbers.

Isn’t that Amazon logistics (or whatever they call their prime fulfillment)?

Ebay doesn't accept Amazon Logistics as a qualified carrier, so Amazon Logistics tracking number (starts typically with"TBA") are not accepted on Ebay. Whats a good and reliable service that can convert those "TBA" tracking numbers to a supported tracking number (such as UPS, USPS, or FedEx)? any tips appreciated

My point is that TBA might not be delievered by USPS/FedEx/UPS, so I don’t see how “conversion” is an option.

Does Amazon even give you a TBA tracking # when they use one of those major eBay approved carriers?

Nope. Amazon only uses a TBA when fulfilling with their internal logistics. If fulfilling with USPS or UPS they give a USPS/UPS tracking

A conversion would help to give updates on a system that is supported by ebay.

Once again, if this is the case then asking for a conversion makes no sense.

But if what you’re looking for is a UPS/USPS/FedEx tracking number that works for eBay, and TBA is none of those, then what exactly do you expect TBA to “convert” to?

Interesting, looks like a loophole. I wonder how long until eBay catches on and what they’ll do about it

Drop shipping from Walmart you usually don't have that problem.

If Walmart ships from store you wont even get any sort of tracking number.

They ship from store in about 5% of cases. Amazon uses TBA a lot more then that.
