I filed a claim and ebay closed it in my favor, however the item was returned to sender.
What am I supposed to do with the item now?
You're the buyer and item was returned to the sender, what should you do with the item? I'm confused. Are you talking about an item you returned?

I am the buyer, and returned the item to the seller, however either the seller refused the item, or it's a wrong address. But either way the item was returned to me, and the seller is not responding.

I donít know the value, how much the seller lost, if it can be resold once returned etc, but technically itís yours. Now if you want to go the extra mile for whatever reason you can just keep it aside for a little while. If the seller wants it back theyíll contact you.

Is there a way to restrict my listings from being sold to people that live in Puerto Rico and Alaska?

 I don't mind selling my item globally as I send it to a a shipping center ran by eBay in Kentucky which is totally fine, but shipping it to Puerto Rico and Alaska is like shipping it across the sea.

I ship USPS to HI & AK but not to PR. Flat rate priority mail is the same price, and you have the option to add a surcharge as well, which is what I do for regular priority mail. FedEx and UPS can get pricey.
I donít know what type of account you have, but you should be able to exclude either in business policies or on the listing.

Cool will take a look.
How does one add a surcharge? I guess i'll have to google that as well. Thanks MJ.

Yes, but make sure that both shipping addresses are the same.

You can ship it together but you will have issues uploading tracking to the second order unless you use the bulk shipping tool over there you can combined the orders and ship it that way. To access the bulk shipping tool check off both items and click ship.. should take you to bulk. Otherwise create a label for one and upload the tracking for the other on PayPal usually eBay picks up the tracking..

Thanks for that!

Does that mean without the number the sale won't go through?

What's the problem using the same tracking number twice?

I posted and sold purells in the past few days. eBay removed the last 2 I posted. eBay also sent out emails that they don't allow new hand sanitizer and similar products for fear of price gauging. However I see many purells still for sale. Will I get in trouble from eBay if I continue posting these type of items?

Is there a big risk if I'm managing two eBay accounts for two different people from the same location (IP and computer)?

Most likely.
